Taking the hassle out of renting a car
How many times have you found yourself staring down endless rows of boring, humbug rentals, trying to pick which one is the best for your buck? With all the time it takes to stare, compare, and choose, it may just be easier to close your eyes, spin in a circle, and point.
But lucky for you, you wont have to do either, thanks to what some believe to be the most convenient car rental app to date: Silvercar, headquartered in Austin.
With Silvercar, there are no more endless rows to stare down, no more boring vehicles, and no more paperwork; that’s because every single one of their vehicles is a silver Audi A4, and can be reserved, paid for, and picked up directly from their app. Done.
Let’s see how this works exactly:
First, of course, users must download the Silvercar app, available for both iPhone or Android.
Here, you will be given the option of selecting which city you want to reserve your car in. Right now, Silvercar is available in Austin, Chicago, Dallas, Denver, Ft. Lauderdale, Las Vegas, Los Angeles, Miami, New York City, Phoenix, and San Francisco.
The layout is seamless, and the interface is captivating. Each city is highlighted on an infinite scroll feature with an awesome picture from each town as the backdrop. Once you select the city, select the dates you want, and the pick-up and drop-off times.
Then pay and pick up – easy peasy
From there, all you have to do is pay. Now I know this is usually where you say a little prayer, and do a little dance, in hopes that the price is not too high. And I also know you’re pretty positive that same prayer and dance won’t help you with an Audi A4, but you’re wrong!
Prices most certainly vary, but I tested out a weekend trip in four different cities on the Silvercar app, and prices averaged around $55 per day: the same price for a boring, economy, hatchback rental.
Also, get this – they run specials all the time for first time rentals, and they pay you if you refer a friend.
Once you reserve, all you have to do is use the handy app to unlock the car, and there you have it: the coolest, most affordable, predictable rental you’ve probably ever had.
Don’t forget the extra goodies
Now that you know how cool the app is, it’s time to tell you just how cool your actual Silvercar is. First off, there’s fair toll tracking on each car, so you only pay for the toll you incur, and no transponder fees.
There’s also a radio, but not just any radio, free SiriusXM satellite radio. It even has fair fuel planning, which keeps track, and allows you to pay only for the gas you use, at the local pump price. But here’s the mother load of all those features: free Wi-Fi and GPS, so no more roaming overages, or data charges!
How much more cooler, or simpler can car rentals get? I’m actually so excited, I’ve been multi-tasking and planning a trip, this entire time. So if you too want to get in on the excitement, download Silvercar and reserve your silver Audi A4 today!
