Seems like you answered your own question.
or maybe there's a $75 code I don't know about, that's why I'm asking.

I made a weeklong reservation a while ago. Since it's coming up this week, I decided to try to get silvercar to let me split it up into multiple rentals without having to bring the car in each time (to save by using promo codes each time). That led to an email exchange with someone from the Miami office. He wouldn't answer about allowing multiple rentals without coming in each time, but he offered an extra $50 off, which I accepted.

Here's where it gets interesting. I checked the reservation and I see he switched the promo code I originally put in. The new one gives $100 off - and it appears to work for any rental.

I know the vast majority of you will say post it, but I'm a little uneasy, given that it wasn't his intention to publicize this offer.

Thoughts?

Okay, so I've made up my mind. The code produces a 'Special Case discount'. It only works at MIA, and it'll even net a free one day rental (just pay taxes/fees). However, due to various concerns (real or imagined), I'm going to hold off giving the code out till my rental finishes. If it still works after that, I'll distribute the code via PM. I apologize to anyone who was hoping to use the code before then, but I have to protect my interest first.

I have a question ...
I will be going to miami for a few days and i thought it will be a great time to try silver car.
The thing is i think i am a tad to young right under the 22 year mark, my Bday is in Dec.
My question ...does anyone think that they will make a problem? (the reason i am asking is because if you look at the license it looks like i am older due to the fact that i was born in December).
and i fthere should be a problem then does anybody know a way around this issue?
TIA.

You have to put your drivers license info into your profile. I highly doubt you'll be able to get the rental.

You can make a reservation for 11 and then call up and tell them that you are delayed... They are very accommodating (obviously you would need a back up rental)

they were rlly accommodating the last time i used them. i called them prior to coming to LAX and said my arrival was past hours and they said no problem and they waited for me til i arrived and picked me up from baggage claim in my Audi. By far my best rental experience in terms of customer service

+1. I was massively delayed on my way to MIA - I ended up getting in close to 2AM. I stayed in touch with them by text and someone stuck around that late - even picked me up at arrivals.

I had a similar situation, support said no, I reached out directly to branch and they said yes 100%
For reference, it was at Denver.
