Title: Silvercar Master Thread
Post by: caliheat on February 27, 2015, 12:21:11 PM
After seeing some posts on DDF about Silvercar, I decided to give them a try on my recent trip to Los Angeles.

A little background on Silvercar:
Silvercar is a start-up rental car service available in select markets. They rent only Silver Audi A4's (besides in DEN, they offer Q5's as well)
The service is more personal (and reliable) - see details in my report.
Each car comes equipped with GPS, SiriusXM, Wi-fi, Bluetooth, & Toll Pass.
They also offer a great gas service, for only a $5 surcharge, they refill your car for market rate - no inflated prices or pre-paid BS.

I will start from the beginning:
On February 3rd I made a reservation to pick-up on the 24th am and drop-off 25th pm.
They were running a special $59 per day (instead of $79) plus $50 off first rental of 2 days or more (Promo Code: AFF-FTD).
I received an e-mail on February 23rd - 24 hours prior to my reservation - that my res. was cancelled.
It turned out that you have to complete an online registration to complete the res., which I was unaware of.
Because of the scan and drive service (below), you have to register your license, credit card & insurance prior to your first rental.
After some tweets and messages, I got everything settled and reservation re-instated.

Upon arriving at LAX (previously downloaded the Silvercar app), I opened my app for detailed instruction.
At LAX, I got on the "Lot C" bus, once on the bus, I pressed the "pick me up" button which then prompted to either call or text them that I arrived - I opted for text.
They respond for my location and told me where to meet them (the app says as well).
I got off the bus at the first stop which is the "cellphone waiting lot".
Immediately I spotted the silver Audi waiting with a Silvercar rep.
Diana - the silver car rep - verified my license and credit card, I QR scanned the car and was ready to go in under 2 minutes.
She asked if I needed any car instructions which I declined, and I was on my way.
The car was perfect: clean, car instructions included (which buttons do what) and all ready to roll.

When it is time for returning, I tapped the app and pressed "map it", (or you can use the favorites in the car GPS to direct you to the drop location at the airport).
Upon arriving at the drop location, a rep - Socrates - met me and drove me in the same car to the terminal.
We chatted about Silvercar service (they have 150 cars at LAX expanding to 250).
I opted not to fill the tank prior to dropping off and instead went for their "hassle-free" policy.
Within 30 minutes of getting dropped off, I received my bill:
$118 base rate ($59 daily)
-$50 first timer discount
$16.08 for 4.8 gallons of gas @ $3.35 per gallon (89 fuel)
$5 fuel service charge
$9.79 for taxes
$98.87 total price

Overall loved the service.
@ $79 a day, not sure I would use it personally, but for work, I get reimbursed, so I will use it again.

According to an Employee - they will be doing major expansion in the coming months.
First they are increasing current location inventory to maximize revenue per location.

Used them as well and blew my expectations. I did not properly enter a coupon during reservation, they had no problem reimbursing over the phone, even though they had every right to decline.

The agent was knowledgeable and there to help.

They are running a special of $39 a day in MIA and PHX till end of may, no coupon needed.

I rented from them in LAX last month, it was pretty good. The only problem I had was that when I entered the lot to return the car I didn't know where to drop that damn vehicle off. I had 50 minutes to my flight, and I am in this HUGE parking lot looking for some other silver cars (they share a lot with Park N Fly)...Until I decided to just drop it off. I texted them the parking space number and ran to the shuttle bus.

I used the $50 off coupon plus I was promised the $25 paypal credit by using dan's referral link, but so far I haven't gotten anything. I will call them next week if I don't get it.

see my email exchange below with GM in Phoenix.  They were able to switch cc's for me after the fact and it looks like they may be working on making it available in the future. So I used chase sapphire in the beginning of rental and then when I returned car with no car damage switched cc on profile with Barclay's world arrival so that I can redeem for travel!  At the location they said my first card will be charged but after escalating matters via email they agreed to charge latter card

You decline CDL, it's your choice if you want liability insurance.
Just checked, I entered PERSONAL and wrote the provider, if you want to take liability then select Silvercar and choose what you need

Are there any codes for longer rental periods? They don't seem to have weekly rates either, so it seems like it becomes less attractive an option the longer the rental. I'm probably gonna be renting in Miami in August. For 2 or 3 days, it's a no brainer. For a week, not as much. If I absolutely needed a luxury car, it's still a great deal, but I don't.

I just got back from MIA and my first Silvercar experience. I had some damage to the car that kind of complicated my experience. Here is how I would break it down:

Pros

Cons

All in all, this was a nice experience, but I would not rent from these guys again until they become somewhat more established and recognized. But by then the price will probably be 4 times the amount. :-)

If you follow the in app instructions, there will be an agent waiting for you with a car when you arrive.

Upon my return at MIA, my flight was at 6:15 am I notified them that I will be there @ 5am when they open and they assured me there will be an agent waiting to take me to the gate. At 5:00 I received a txt that they are waiting and I arrived a min later. The agent took a half a look at the car and we drove off.
While in line to board the plane, my wife noticed she did not have her cell phone and must have left it in the car. I called the number I received the txt from earlier and the agent quickly searched the car and located the phone , he hopped in a car to meet me at the terminal, I ran back to TSA and told an officer there is a guy at the other end with a phone for me, the guy arrived a minute later passed the phone through the X-ray machine and I was back off running to the gate, I was the last to board an empty flight back home.

In Miami, I wasn't sure whether the MIA mover was before/after security so I gave them a call. They came to pick me up at the terminal, even though the instructions do say to get on the mover. Also they gave a very quick walk around when I returned to check for damage. I had a great experience.

Anyone try doing back to back 2 day rentals to capitalize on the promo code?

I'm gonna do this:

Will be in LA for a week. My options are:

Rent from Hertz for a week using money (and use CC for insurance)= $280
Rent from Hertz for a week using points (and pay for their LDW insurance)= $307

OR

Rent from Hertz for 3 days using points (and pay for their LDW insurance)= $81
Rent from Silvercar for 2 days= $78
Rent again from Silvercar for 2 days= $78
Plus $50 back in referral credits (2x$25)

Total Cost= $187.

Oh, and better cars :)

LLTG!!

Post by: skyguy918 on August 19, 2015, 09:37:14 AM
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?

Post by: skyguy918 on August 19, 2015, 02:16:45 PM
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 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.

How does Silvercar get around the NY State laws governing car-rentals, including, not allowing drivers until age 22 (NY State law requires car rental companies to rent to 18+), requiring the driver to carry an insurance policy (NY State law requires car-rental companies to provide the same amount of liability insurance as any car owner and cannot refuse to rent a car to someone who does not carry a separate policy), and not allowing a spouse to drive unless he/she is age 22+ and present at the time of the rental pick-up (NY State law provides for a spouse to drive the vehicle if he/she is licensed and eighteen+ years of age)?
Title: Re: Silvercar Master Thread
Post by: mordylich on November 02, 2015, 02:53:17 PM
The part that is relevant to me is the insurance requirement.  I don't own a car and don't have my own policy.  It would seem that under Silvercar's rules, I would not be able to rent a car, but NY State law provides me with the right to rent one.

The location in LAX (could be all of them) close at 11 and dont have the ability to drop the car off afterwards! No night drop box... No options at all other than returning the car early and sitting in the airport.

While some of the company's other features and amenities certainly are awesome, this one IMHO is pretty foolish. Every car rental at the airport is either open 24 hours or has the ability to make an after hour drop off. Can't see myself using them again...

Every single location's hours are 4:30 or 5 to 11 (except NYC, which is 8-8). All of them say the same thing regarding pick-up and dropoff outside those hours, which is that we can't guarantee anything, but contact us and we'll try to accommodate you. Did you contact them? I can only share my personal experience, in which Silvercar went above and beyond.

The 1 time I used them (in MIA), we were initially scheduled to arrive well before 11, but ended up arriving past 1AM. They stayed in contact the whole time, and were able to pick us up when we got there. On the way back I ended up having to cut my trip short and flying out of FLL. But this happened after 11PM, so there was no one to talk to at the MIA office about switching to FLL. The main line was open though, and stayed on it for me. She called back at around 4am (at my request), to confirm that someone would be at FLL to receive the car and drop me off at the airport.

(sorta like if u have a Hyatt free night and wife's free night u can combine into one stay by asking front desk)

Anyone try doing back to back 2 day rentals to capitalize on the promo code?

In case this isn't clear, it covers the entire refueling, not just the $5 refueling fee. Not to be combined with other offers.

Now that gas is so cheap, it was a smart idea from their end because it sounds better than it really is... A tank of gas runs at about $35 so the $50 off codes are better for us...

If you're renting for two or more days, use code LOUNGEBUDDY to get one day free. If you're only renting for one day, use code SPRING20 to save 20% on rentals until 5/15/16

Clarity on taking out insurance when renting in SilverCar... If I choose "personal coverage" like Dan says to use the CDW that Amex offers, but I am not on my parents insurance, therefore not really covered for liability, I assume I need to purchase liability insurance as SilverCar calls it "other people and their things" for $12.44 a day ??? Is that the correct assumption?

All in all I was very impressed, the car showed up on time, I was with my wife and three kids so the driver let me drive off and he found his way back on his own, the whole experinces was seamless, fast and a breeze, I would very much recommend this service.

How do I go about liability with Silvercar? I have Reserve card (among many other card options). Can I pay for liability and have CDW on the card? I'm from NY, but I live in Israel, and I don't own a car.
And what about other car rentals? When I go to final checkout, and I don't select the CDW, does the total price include liability, or will I need to pay that separately at the counter? (Here in Israel, it's usually not included in the price and needs to be paid separately)
Any help would be appreciated. TIA.

i had the same dilemma but ultimately I chose silvercar.
1) because I've never tried it and its always fun to try new things
2) they don't bother you about stupidities. Gas tolls etc. they specifically mention that small scratches on the front and back bumpers don't matter.  Whereas by sixt I've read some reviews saying the opposite.
3) no need to hock upgrades. You get a great car with plenty of amenities.
4) you are in and out. No waiting at all at pickup or return.
Title: Re: Silvercar Master Thread
Post by: gubevo18 on February 03, 2017, 01:22:26 AM
But just a heads up for everyone who plans on renting from them.
Keep in mind that they aren'tlike the big  national rental companies.(well, obviously 🙄).
But seriously meaning if you rent from say PHX and drive to the Grand Canyon and ch"v get a flat you are sort of screwd. This actually happened to someone I know and he had to wait till someone from PHX came to pick him up as his spare went 12 miles into the return trip and they don't allow any other tires.
But not specifically flats. There is no going to the nearest budget and trading in.

I got an email from silvercar the announcement:


Dear *******
I have some exciting news to share Silvercar has entered into an agreement to be acquired by Audi!

It痴 no secret that Silvercar and Audi have a longstanding relationship. Heck, we致e only ever rented Audi A4s! Now, thanks to your overwhelming loyalty and support this exciting development opens the door to more convenience, more choices and an even better Silvercar experience.

It was all of you who got us here, and together we are changing the way the world hits the road. We wouldn稚 dream of continuing the journey without you!

Stay excited!

Silvercar has lost appeal to me. Their prices are not competitive, and the A4 is not an amazing vehicle. For example, their prices in LAX are consistently 30/40 percent higher.

yep I only use them when I can stack a bunch of codes and get the car for really cheap.

The best was when I did that in Chicago and then they gave me another 25% back since they said the car was oldish. Ended up getting the car for really nothing.

It is also great to not have to fill up gas and pay regular price.

I was charged $10 a gallon by avis when I was rushing and did not have a chance to fill up

IIRC you can't book that online. I think someone way upthread said that they were able to make a reservation with pickup and drop off in Orlando and then call Silvercar and change the drop off to Miami. Not sure about a fee.

Worth a try, worst that'll happen is that you can cancel if they won't switch it, no?

Title: Silvercar abruptly discontinues 30% off code VINFINITE
Post by: Jonny on November 09, 2018, 03:37:08 PM
FYI Silvercar will no longer honor code VINFINITE for rentals booked after 11/8/2018. For the record, I have a CSR and qualify for the code (I know it worked for any and everyone, though.) I found this out pretty abruptly when I tried to modify a booking today that I originally made on 11/4, but due to glitching in the app I just cancelled the res and wanted to just start a new one, only to discover that the code was invalid. When I called to tell them that I was trying to modify a booking from 11/4 (ie before the 11/8 cutoff) they told me they couldn't honor it.

Definitely a bit disappointed that they wouldn't honor it, despite seeing I tried to book on 11/4. I was also disappointed that the code was disabled without any notification from Silvercar or Visa. The rep eventually told me I could use a new code, WEEKLY30, to get the same 30% off, but it's only for rentals 6+ days (which my upcoming trip happens to be), as opposed to VINFINITE which world for 2+ days. Definitely a game changer for me in terms of using Silverware going forward.

I'm gonna guess that they got rid of the code bc too many non Visa holders were using it, but who really knows.

Hey Dan, I also was able to find that code NEXTTIME works for 50% off. One time use per account, though. I used it and my 6 day rental in a Q5 is now billed at around $230. Pretty good deal.

Also, apparently Audi owners get the following: 摘nter promo code MYAUDI1 - 1 free day on reservations of 2+ days. Enter promo code MYAUDI2 - 2 free days on reservations of 4+ days

But supposedly works for all users, but I haven't been able to verify.

I was pleasantly surprised that I was able to make a one day extension (now Thursday-Sunday) using the app without changing the rate code or pricing structure.

Anyone have any idea what silvercars cancellation policy is?
You may cancel or modify your reservation at any time without penalties or a cancellation fee.

Hey Dan, I also was able to find that code NEXTTIME works for 50% off. One time use per account, though. I used it and my 6 day rental in a Q5 is now billed at around $230. Pretty good deal.

Also, apparently Audi owners get the following: 摘nter promo code MYAUDI1 - 1 free day on reservations of 2+ days. Enter promo code MYAUDI2 - 2 free days on reservations of 4+ days

But supposedly works for all users, but I haven't been able to verify.

As of around a year ago, you could book a rental returning to the pick-up location and then call to change the drop off location.

I'm enrolled in Amex Premium Car Rental Protection, but the Silvercar rentals aren't triggering the 24.95 charge.

Amex doesn't cover Turo peer to peer rentals, but shouldn't silver car be included?

Which is the best card to use for these rentals in the future?

it takes them a week or 2 to cheshbon the tolls and it will appear as a separate charge

I have the Amex offer of $100 off $350. My rental total is $289.31. I assume a few charges will be added at the end, for gas and tolls. Are there any charges I might be able to add when I return it if I need to get over that $350 threshold? Also, I'm assuming the $200 deposit authorization will not trigger the offer. Any thoughts?

Anyone ever had issue with first rental?

At first they claimed CC was an issue, then DL, and then the app didn't allow rental since it was same day booking, and others had higher priority, even though I had a confirmation.... Wasted over an hour, staff wasn't helpful... Had to leave without a vehicle.
 Very unimpressive first experience.

There are other silvercar deals such as 2 days off of 4 days but the total still comes to over $300 where as if I book with Avis, it is only around $200 for 7 days . I know it is not AUDI car but saving is big deal to me.

Are you referring to coupon code? Did you try the putting the coupon code in online with the dates of your rental?
