Last week I wrote about a new Silvercar location – Newark airport! I personally enjoyed my Silvercar car rental experience, so I am glad to see that they are expanding. With the announcement of this new location, Silvercar is giving new and existing members 20% off and a free tank of gas. Just use code NEWARK when making the reservation.
I picked a random date and see that with this offer, a one day rental will cost $84.75. Plus, you’ll get a tank of gas and if you are planning on driving a good distance where you’ll actually go through an entire tank, that can be valued at about $30. While I know NOTHING about cars, I think Audi’s require premium gas, so the actual tank will cost more, but I am comparing it against a regular rental where premium gas is not required, so valuing it at a $30 savings. With that taken into account, you are spending approximately $50 for your one day rental including tax. And if you are new to Silvercar, you’ll get back $25 after your rental, so this really brings the price down to $25 for the day! While you might find cheaper elsewhere, this is a high end car and car rentals at the tri-state airport tend to be quite pricey in general.
What is Silvercar?
If you are new to Silvercar, it is an interesting concept where you are renting one type a vehicle, an Audi A4. These cars have all-wheel drive, built-in GPS, satellite radio, bluetooth, and a free WiFi hotspot. Renting a car with them is seamless as there is no paperwork to fill out (you complete your profile ahead of time). Typically an employee will pick you up at the airport in your car as well and and drop you off at the airport and you’ll not have to deal with car rental shuttles.
New to Silvercar?
If you are new to Silvercar, after you complete first rental you’ll get $25 back from Silvercar – within 24 hours after you complete the reservation you’ll receive an email from Silvercar and will be paid back $25. To receive this credit you must sign up through another members referral. Note: This is my referral link. As always, thanks for the support and feel free to leave your referral in the comments section as well!
