Silvercar is a premium rental-car startup. They have endeavoured to take car rentals to the next level by simplifiing the process and renting out a premium car. Here is some of the information about them.
Premium car for everyone
The only car that Silvercar rents out is the Audi A4 and it comes loaded for the renter – free multi-media navigation system, free Sirius/XM satellite radio, free WiFi hotspot, as well as other features to simply the process for the driver.
Simplified rental process
No more lines! You simply download the Silvercar app, make your reservation and go to your car. You then actually use your Silvercar app to get into your car and then receive your receipt when returned. I have not tried it yet, but that all sounds very good to me!
At this time, they are only in a few cities:
- Austin, TX (AUS)
- Houston, TX (Hobby Airport)
- Dallas/Ft. Worth, TX (DFW)
- Dallas, TX (Love Airport)
- Los Angeles, CA (LAX)
- San Francisco, CA (SFO)
For a limited-time, Silvercar is running a promotion for new customers that gives $50 off the rental price. This obviously makes renting for one-day the cheapest option but can also help if you rent for mult-days as it will reduce the overall price by $50. Here are the details:
- Website – Silvercar
- Promo Code: AFF-FTD
- Must book by 06/30/2014
- Only for new customers
Here is an example of the discounted price
For any of you running the marathons in Houston, Austin, or Los Angeles, this would be a nice way to attend your marathon in style! Again, it can work for multi-day but the best deal is for one-day for $9 for the weekend day. If you do rent it, make sure you use a credit card that comes with insurance so you will not need to have insurance through them.
If you do rent and drive, please let me know how the whole experience was!
