There’s nothing quite like driving a machine engineered for pure performance and luxury–you can sense when the automaker spared no expense. Some people drive exotics to feel the engine’s growl at ignition, while others prefer to enjoy the quality craftsmanship of the car’s interior.

Whatever your motivation, you can get behind the wheel of an exotic or luxury car rental if you have the cash. A “modest” model like a Mercedes AMG C 63 may set you back a few hundred dollars for one day, while a heart-pounding McLaren can cost $2,000 for the day. In our comparison of the best rental car companies, we’ve noted the few that provide real luxury models. We’ll highlight those below and also include a variety of specialty exotic rental companies in different areas of the country.

What is an Exotic Car?

Exotic cars are different from luxury cars since they often refer to supercars, which are street-legal high-performance sports cars. In the broadest sense, they are rare and extremely high-cost vehicles that come with high specs not seen in any other vehicle and usually have a unique look that sets them apart. So, they are vehicles you don’t often see on the road. Some common exotic car brands would include Ferrari, Lamborghini, Rolls Royce, Mclaren, and Bugatti.

How Much Does an Exotic Car Rental Cost?

Most specialty rental companies charge anywhere from $1,000 to $3,000 a day for exotic high-end cars like the Rolls-Royce Cullinan or Ferrari Portofino. You can even spend $25,000 for a single day on a Bugatti Veyron from MPG Club in Miami (and miles cost extra). Granted, the car has 1,001 horsepower and a top speed of over 250 mph, so we’d say it’s worth it.

It all depends on your definition of a luxury or exotic car. If you want to drive a BMW 7 Series or Mercedes AMG C 63, you can do this through some major rental companies for a few hundred dollars per day. But, if you want to get into a Lamborghini Huracan or Rolls-Royce Ghost, you’ll need to shell out some more cash. One thing’s for sure: exotic cars are not cheap rental cars.

Keep in mind that daily rates don’t include add-ons like a loss damage waiver, which waives your responsibility for covering damage through your own insurance company. The front bumper on a Lamborghini Aventador can cost over $13,000, which is 20 times the cost of a Toyota Camry bumper. And that’s just the cost of the part. Normally, a loss damage waiver isn’t worth it when renting a standard car if you have your own comprehensive coverage, but you should definitely get one if it’s available from the exotic rental company.

Where You Can Rent Exotic Cars

You might be surprised to learn that you can get a variety of luxury models from national rental agencies like Hertz, Enterprise, and Sixt. You can also find some exotic models on Turo within its Super Deluxe category. Of course, you can also choose specialty exotic rental companies depending on your area. This is the way to taste ultra-luxury and world-class performance for yourself. We’ll give you an overview of a few options here.

You’ll find the best selection of exotic cars in big cities known for entertainment and nightlife. These include Miami, Hollywood, Las Vegas, Los Angeles, New York, and Atlanta in the U.S. For global travelers, you’ll find huge selections in London, Dubai, Paris, Monaco, Istanbul, and Amsterdam. 

You can find anything from classic roadsters to the latest model supercars in these cities. You can also get exotic and luxury vehicles in many other cities across the country, but you might not find quite the same selection as in Miami or New York.


You won’t find any Italian supercar brands from Hertz in the U.S., but the company does offer a few luxury options through its Dream Collection. The collection is available at 40 airports in the U.S. and includes high-performance vehicles like:

  • Mercedes-Benz AMG CLA 45
  • Porsche 911 and Cayman
  • Nissan GT-R
  • Chevrolet Camaro SS
  • Limited edition Camaro ZL1

Hertz offers an expanded Dream Collection in France, Italy, and the United Kingdom that features Ferrari, Bentley, Lamborghini, and others.

Our team named Hertz Best Customer Experience in our rental car company comparison. The provider is known for reliable service around the world and has a 4.4-star rating from customers on Trustpilot.


Enterprise has a slightly better luxury selection than Hertz. The company offers exotics under its Ultra Luxury collection. These cars are available at any location that has “exotic” in the title as you look for rentals on 

A few vehicles included in the Ultra Luxury collection are:

  • Aston Martin DBX
  • Lamborghini Urus
  • Bentley Continental GT
  • Lamborghini Huracan

Enterprise earns our Best Availability award because it has over 4,000 locations in the U.S. and over 10,000 worldwide.


Sixt is a multinational rental agency known for providing a premium experience. You can find a variety of sports cars and luxury models from the company, including: 

  • BMW 8 Series
  • Range Rover
  • Mercedes-Benz G-Class

Sixt also offers car subscriptions–you pay a monthly fee to drive a specific vehicle and change it out whenever you want. There is no down payment and you can cancel on a monthly basis, which makes the subscription different from a lease.


You’d be surprised at the exotic sports cars you can find on Turo. For example, our team found a pearlescent 2017 Acura NSX for rent in Portland, Oregon, for $725 per day. Anyone can list a car for rent on Turo, so there are some hidden gems for rent across the country. You do need to be 30 years old to rent a car in Turo’s Super Deluxe class.

How to Rent an Exotic Car

You rent an exotic car like any other vehicle rental, but it comes with higher restrictions overall. Whether you want to experience what it’s like to drive your dream car, go all out for a special occasion, or party hard with your friends, there are exotic cars just waiting to be rented. 

Requirements To Rent An Exotic Car

Renting an exotic car comes with a few more stipulations than renting a basic Toyota Corolla. Most companies will require you to be 25 years old to rent an exotic car, and some may even require you to be older. For example, the car-sharing marketplace Turo rents some exotics under its Super Deluxe category, but you must be 30 years old to participate. However, some companies in Las Vegas allow drivers as young as 21 to rent exotic cars.

You also have to provide your identification and proof of auto insurance. Companies usually require you to have full-coverage insurance to rent an exotic car, even if that means bumping up your policy for a few days while you rent the car.

Finally, you can expect to pay a hefty deposit in most cases. Companies do this to protect their investments in valuable vehicles. You should also budget wisely before renting an exotic car. Depending on the vehicle, a single rental day can cost you $1,000 or more before add-ons and a security deposit.

Exotic Car Rentals: Conclusion

You can find exotic cars from a few rental agencies, Turo, and a variety of exotic car companies in different areas. It can take a little time to set up a profile and get a quote from some exotic rental car companies, so we recommend planning ahead of time and comparing a few different options. Once you make a reservation, all that’s left is to drive safely and have a blast.
