Hertz adds Porsche Panamera to their US fleet

Hertz has started relationship with Porsche Cars North America to offer Panamera sport sedans in select locations in California, Florida and Nevada. Panamera will be part of  Hertz Prestige Collection Fleet.  Based on the list  price mentioned in their press release and Hertz Vehicle Guide 27 mpg rating hints that Panamera model to be offered will be V6.

Avis Germany have been offering Porsche vehicles in Germany several years and their models are mainly top of the model range with good list of options. I hope Hertz will not make the mistake offering just entry level base trip versions. Would like to see other Porsche vehicles (911, Boxster, Cayman)  to be added to Hertz fleet.

Panamera rental prices start $250 per day. I searched price for two day rental from Los Angeles Airport (LAX). Currently LAX was the only location where I could find availability. Daily rate for weekday rental was $299.49 USD with 100 miles included per day. Additional miles cost .39 USD. And then you need to add all taxes and fees (don’t forget insurance CDW/LDW). Price will probably come down using AAA CDP or other CDP discount codes which you might have.



Sixt Germany added M5 (F10) to their 2012 fleet

Prices start 249 eur per day including 150 km per day. 249 eur day rate requires 10 day rental. For shorter rentals daily rates are higher. Extra km are 0.99 euros. (99 cents).

Price example:

Weekend rental (3 days) pickup and return Sixt Munich Schwabing Luxury Cars.

daily rate € 273,32 and total 819.97 eur.

600 kilometers (200km / Dai; € 0,99 / extra kilometers), Liability insurance, Navigation system, Collision Damage Waiver with theft protection (deductible: € 1500,00). Deductible can be lowered to 0 euros with addtional fee of 21.49 euros per day.

Weekend 3 day rental is “best” deal since it gives additional 150 kilometers over weekday 3 day rental and in general weekday daily rate is higher.  Renting from Airport Sixt location will add 20% location surcharge to rental fees.

If you will be renting from Munich and you are looking for short term (1 day) rental BMW On Demand is option to consider.
