Lyft Partners with SIXT to Expand Friction-Free Car Rentals Nationwide

Following the success of Lyft Rentals in California, the company is bringing its best-in-class car rental experience to more travelers across the U.S. through a new partnership with SIXT rent a car.

With more than 280,000 premium vehicles worldwide, SIXT stands for a consistent customer focus and culture of strong technological innovation.


Starting this August, Lyft riders in Seattle, Las Vegas and Miami will be able to rent a SIXT car through the "Rentals" tab in the Lyft app.


Following this three-city launch, Lyft plans to expand to all cities within the SIXT rental network in the U.S. in the coming months.


"We have reimagined what renting a car should look like, solving for common pain points like long wait times at the rental counter, uncertainty on which car renters will leave with and stress getting home after returning---we’ve tackled these head-on by eliminating lengthy paperwork, contact-reduced and expedited pickup and dropoff, allowing renters to select the exact car they’ll leave with and by providing Lyft credit to get home after the rental is complete," Lyft said in a news release.


SIXT has established digital mobility services for customers, allowing Lyft to seamlessly integrate SIXT's fleet into its model for friction-free car rentals. SIXT is present in the major airport and downtown markets across the U.S., with further expansion planned, unlocking nationwide access for Lyft Rentals. 


Since launching Lyft Rentals last year, renters have shared they love being able to select the exact car they’ll rent, the easy-to-understand insurance and add-ons, the seamless pickup and drop-off experience and subsidized Lyft ride.


Lyft said it is bringing all of this to the next phase of its rentals program, as it expands in partnership with SIXT.


Reservations are simple and can be made directly from the Lyft app, and soon the brand new Lyft Rentals website.


"We know that people expect an experience that also focuses on health safety, which is why with Lyft Rentals we are prioritizing a contact reduced pickup and dropoff experience and enhanced health standards," Lyft said.
