Talk about listening to my feedback 😀

Silvercar is a new-age car rental company.
The only car they rent is the all-wheel drive Audi A4. It comes with built-in GPS, satellite radio, bluetooth, leather seats, and even a free WiFi hotspot. Unlimited miles are included in every rental.
I rented a car from Avis in Miami earlier this year and got hit with a $17.20 bill for a two 70 cent tolls that I apparently passed on SR112. That’s $1.40 for the tolls and $15.80 for an “eToll Convenience Fee.” Convenient for whom is the question?
Silvercar only passes on the toll itself, no convenience fees.
If you don’t refill the fuel you’ll only be charged a $5 flat rate fee on top of the actual local price of the gas needed to fill up the car. No need to jeopardize missing your flight just to avoid paying $10/gallon for fuel.
At airports where Silvercar is offsite you’ll get picked up and dropped off at the airport in an Audi as well.
Alas Silvercar is only for those 25 or older. Would have been nice if they dropped that to a more reasonable 21 while they are shaking things up anyway.
If you signup via my referral link here you and I will both get $25 after you complete your first rental. The $25 will sent to you via Paypal after your rental.
Rates for May rentals are just $59/day. Rentals in Miami or Phoenix in May are just $39/day.
-With this link you can save $50 off your first rental that’s at least 2 days long. If it doesn’t take $50 off for you just enter code: AFF-FTD This is valid for rentals anytime. For example a 2 day rental in Miami from May 17-19 would cost $40.66 ($28 plus $12.66 tax) after the $50 off. Plus you’ll get $25 back after the rental, dropping the effective cost to just $15.66 for 2 days.
Silvercar is currently located in:
