Silvercar is a car rental company with only one model available for rent. The only vehicle option is a silver Audi A4 loaded with Bluetooth, navigation system and Wi-Fi, and users reserve one through the company’s site or on its app for iPhone or Android. Most of their locations are near airports.
Renting a car is easy. The keys are already inside, and they are unlocked through a scan code that is embedded within the app. For returns, customers use the app for step-by-step instructions.
Prices to rent range between $59 and $89 a day and include roadside assistance and additional drivers. Also, renters who don’t have time to fill up their tanks before returning pay $5 plus the local gas prices instead of the standard premium refilling fee.
Right now they Silvercar has a promotion that can get you a very cheap rental if you’re a new customer, with one day free when you rent for at least 2 days. It gets even better with a referral code.
Here’s how it works:
- Sign up for a Silvercar account
- Add referral code KRDXONWB (go to Account > Refer a Friend to get $25 after first reservation)
- Use promo code FACEBOOK to get 1 day free on a 2-day+ rental
- When your first reservation is completed you will receive $25 credit
The price will vary by location. In my example above, in Brooklyn NY, the total comes out to $82 and you receive $25 credit after first reservation. So price is $41 a day for current customers and $29 a day for new customers.
