Student Offers on Car Hire

It has not been a particularly good week for students in the UK this week, following the news that tuitions fees could well be on the increase over the next few years. Already the financial burden of going to university, paying for your course and then for the bills that are racked up throughout the years of study is sometimes forcing potential students to reconsider furthering their education.

However, Sixt Rent a Car are hoping to at least pass on some good news for students throughout the UK. Student offer:ย Cheap car rentals, on selected vehicles, for anyone with a valid NUS or NUS graduate card over the age of 19.

To provide an offer like this we have had to make a few concessions and it has taken a little bit of wrangling, but we’re pleased to say that all of the background negotiation is out of the way and the path is clear for students in need of a car for a weekend getaway or a small van for when you need to move house.

Unfortunately the offer does not stand at our franchised branches, but our corporate locations in the heart of London are looking forwards to taking their first student bookings.

Our student discount is available from the following locations: Bishop Stortford, Bristol South, Bromley, Cardiff Central, Epsom, Feltham/Hatton Cross, London Battersea/Vauxhall, London Bow, London Edgware Road, London Fulham/Chelsea, London Heathrow Airport, London Ilford, London Kings Cross, London Stansted Airport, London Victoria Station, London Walthamstow, London Wembley, Manchester Airport and Wimbledon/Morden.

Please book at http://www.sixt.co.uk/campaigns/student-offers to enjoy these great special deals.

    Hi Alvaro,

    Thank you for commenting on our blog.

    The minimum amount of time you must have held your driving licence to rent a car from a Sixt corporate branch in the UK is 1 year.

    Age requirements do vary from country to country. If you were looking to rent outside of the UK, please let me know and I will send you the terms and conditions for the country you are looking to hire from.

    Kind regards,

    Tamara.

    Hi, does an ISIC (international student card) work or is an NUS card required? I have lost my NUS card and it will take a while before my replacement arrives.

    I am a UK student and it clearly states my university on my card.

    Also, I called at the Feltham branch and they were unaware of the student offer, will it still be honoured if I turn up with an ISIC card after I make my reservation?

    • Hi Khaled,

      You can still get the offer by booking on the NUS website and you find the benefits portal. There you will receive the discount. The minimum age for renting in the UK is 21 years.
