Normally, I am hesitant about recommending/referring a product or company that I have not personally tried out myself. Silvercar has been around for a while now and has been adding cities that it services with its car rental model. Finally, I will be able to try them out soon and will have a review about them and my recommendation (or lack thereof) when the time comes.
Silvercar Adds Cities & Increases Referral Bonuses
But, this is not a recommendation of them (though if you search, you will find many people recommending them) but is a news update about them. Yesterday, they sent out e-mails to tell about two new locations – Brooklyn that is open now and Newark that will open May 9th. This is fantastic news for Silvercar fans in those locations or traveling to them (but, rates for NYC area locations can be much higher than other locations). While I have been a pretty loyal National/Avis customer, I am willing to take a spin with something like this when the price is right and the experience is useful. Silvercar has been really working on the experience part and, in some situations, the price can be better than traditional car rental locations.
Increased Referral Bonus
To go along with the price, Silvercar has increased their referral bonus. So, if you sign-up and refer others, you will receive $50 and they will receive $25 after their rental is complete. Likewise, if you do not have an account, you could sign-up with my referral code and get that $25 after your first rental (and I will get $50 after your rental is complete). You can sign-up here and use my referral code GWBRFHTA. In addition to getting $25 after your rental, for rentals before May 15, you can get 20% off by using code SPRING20.
So, right now, Silvercar is in these locations:
- Austin, Texas
- Brooklyn, NY
- Chicago, IL
- Dallas Love Field, TX
- Dallas/Ft. Worth, TX
- Denver, CO
- Ft. Lauderdale, FL
- Las Vegas, NV
- Los Angeles, CA
- Miami, FL
- Manhattan, NY
- Newark, NJ (starting May 9)
- Phoenix, AZ
- San Francisco, CA
I am looking forward to trying it out for the first time! If you want to try it out as well, renting before May 15 can help you get the best deal right now.
