About Silvercar:

Silvercar is a new-age car rental company. 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!

I rented from them in Miami on a 2 day trip last August, and though the weather wasn’t, the car rental was a real treat. I called them upon landing and they picked me up from the terminal so that I was able to avoid taking the train to them. After the rental they dropped me off in my rental car right back to the terminal.

The only car they rent is the fun to drive, 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.

You can rent from Silvercar as long as you are at least 22 years old with no underage fees.

I rented a car from Avis in Miami earlier last 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.

Both AMEX and Chase cover the CDW insurance for a Audi A4, just select personal coverage when renting.

You only pay when you pickup the car, nothing is charged beforehand and there are no cancellation fees ever.

Signup offer:

Step 1: If you signup for an account via my referral link here you and I will both get $25 after you complete your first rental.

Step 2: After enrolling for an account you’ll need to click on this link and enter the following referral code in order to get the $25 after you complete a rental: DELEFF
The $25 will sent to you via a Visa eGift card after your rental.

Promo codes (Choose one):

Existing or new renter code:

With this link you can save 20% off any rental. The rental must begin no later than 5/15. You may need to type in the 20% off promo code: SPRING20

First-time renter codes:

With this link you can get 1 day free on any rental that’s at least 2 days long. If it doesn’t make 1 day free for you just use code: LOUNGEBUDDY
For example a 2 day rental in Miami from May 8-10 would cost $79.18 after the free day. Plus you’ll get $25 back after the rental, dropping the effective cost to $54.18 for 2 days.

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: FACEBOOK50 This code is most advantageous to use when there are sales for rentals under $50 per day, but currently all rentals appear to be more than $50/day.

Must be 22 to sign up for SilverCar

Sounds like a nice outfit to rent from, but looking at the comparison with, say, Budget Intermediate Car via Costco Travel (to AUS) for just under 4 days, it comes out to $209 for Budget vs. $340 with Silvercar, each with all taxes included. Even with the $50 off deal, it’s still higher.

On the other hand, for a “premium car” with Budget, we’re talking $454.

We have just a simple compact we drive back home. If we had more expensive tastes, Silvercar would be a good deal. We don’t….! (heck, when we came out of Egypt, we were on foot!)

eh
