Since I first wrote about Silvercar I’ve received lots of rave reviews from readers thanking me for introducing them to Silvercar. Share your experience in the comments!
One of my few critiques of Silvercar was that they required drivers to be 25, but as I wrote last week, they have lowered that age to 22 without any additional fees. They’re opening in Fort Lauderdale tomorrow and in Chicago in June with more locations to follow!
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.
