Want to experience electric Sportscar ? You can rent BMW i8 from Sixt in Germany. Weekend price (friday 12 – monday 09) with 750 km starts 688 eur (£ 532). Loss damager waiver adds cost between 25 eur (2500 eur excess) 53 eur (0 eur excess) per day. Loss damage waiver you should always budget in rental costs unless you are covered with credit card car rental insurance or your personal car insurance. Additional kilometers costs 1,15 eur (£ 0,88). 4 day weekend (thursday 12 – monday 09) costs 842 eur. with 1000 km . One week is 1078 eur and includes 1750 kilometers. BMW i8 can also be rented in USA from Sixt Miami branch. If you are looking for rent in Munich you can also rent from BMW Welt – BMW On Demand Service. BMW On Demand is targeted for short terms rentals from 1 hour to maximum of 5 days. Our opinion is that best value is daytime rental from 9:00 morning till 17:00 in the evening whre you will only be charged for 3 hours rental time. So you can rent BMW i8 from BMW On Demand for 8 hours for 300 eur and it includes 450 kilometers and included with liability insurance as well as fully comprehensive an third party, fire and theft insurance with an excess of 1.000 Euros.
New BMW M4 Coupe has found it’s way to BMW Welt’s BMW On Demand rental fleet. Overnight rental from 17:00 to 09:00 or daytime rental from 09:00 to 17:00 costs 165 euros and includes 450 km. 24 hour price is 330 euros and includes 900km. Rental includes comprehensive insurance with 750 eur deductible. This is good deal for BMW M4 Coupe but this is only available from BMW Welt in Munich Germany. I would rather spent my money on this than beer tent during Octoberfest. Next month you can do both!
Sixt has pretty much revealed their Summer 2014 “Luxury” fleet. See separate post.
I have been looking forward to see new M3 (F80) and M4 (F82) in their summer 2014 fleet. And the good news is that Sixt will be adding both to their 2014 fleet. Bad news is that cars won’t be available until mid August beginning of September.
I’m not aware that any car rental agency in Germany (or elsewhere) has new BMW M3 / M4 in their fleet yet. There is still hope that new M3 / M4 will make to BMW On Demand – BMW Welt Munich fleet for this summer.
UPDATE (6.5.2014 13:00 CET): According BMW On Demand M3 / M4 will join to their fleet July/August (2014) timeframe.
Hertz has added BMW M5 (F10) to their summer 2013 fleet
In order to book BMW M5 from Hertz you need to call their reservations. Reservation cannot be done online. M5 reservation will go to “request” process which can take couple days.
I dont know which locations BMW M5 is available but I assume biggest Airports and some City locations.
Example prices (your price may vary depending on your possible CDP discounts etc).
1 day rental pickup/return Munich (MUC) Airport:
247 eur (250 km included, CDW with 1500 euro non-waivable excess)
3 day weekend rental starting from Thursday 17:00 to Sunday 17:00
497 eur (750 km included, CDW with 1500 euro non-waivable excess)
CDW is highly recommended and not really sure if they would even rent M5 without CDW. Deductible for BMW M5 without CDW is 85.000 euros (around $110k USD). So I doubt that any credit card coverage would cover it. BMW M5 list price in Germany is 103.500 eur without options.
I think Hertz had some mistake rates at first since they included 500 km per day (at least they claim it to be mistake rate).
Hertz telephone reservations:
Telephone number*: +49 1 805 333 535
* This is not toll free number. Costs 0.42 cents per minute. Youcan also call 24/7 Hertz US – International Reservations number
Opening hours: Monday-Sunday 08:00 – 23:00
Hertz US Reservations

If you will be renting from Munich and you are looking for short term (1 day) rental BMW On Demand is option to consider.
None of the major car rental companies in Germany currently offers new BMW M5 (F10) in their fleet. However if you are going to Munich Germany (BMW Headquarters) you can rent BMW M5 along with other exciting BMW models like M3, 6-series Coupe / Cabrio, Z4 35i, 550i (F10), 335i Cabrio, 335i Coupe, 135i Cabrio, 135 Coupe, X5 M, X6 M. These cars can be rented from BMW Welt as part of BMW On Demand program. BMW On Demand is BMW’s Driving experience program and is offered exclusively at BMW Welt (Munich Germany).
How it works.
You can only book one month in advance
Minimum booking is one hour. 3 hour booking gives you daytime rental from 09:00 (9AM) to 17:00 (5PM) or nightime from 17:00 (5PM) to 09:00 (9AM) next day.
One hour rental comes with 150km per paid hour. Daytime rental (3 paid hours) or Nightime rental (3 paid hours) comes with 450km. Whole day rental (24 hours) is charged 6 hours and comes with 900 km.
Rental terms and conditions state that maximum rental time is 24 hours but you seem to be able to book longer periods – I dont know how they will handle these situations. But to rent for longer periods it probably makes more sense to rent from Sixt (M3 from 99 eur per day).
M5 09:00 (9AM) to 17:00 (5PM) costs 210 eur and comes with 450 km’s. (see example below)
