Travelers under the age of 25 have traditionally had difficulty renting cars. Those younger drivers have a new option available, as startup rental car agency Silvercar has lowered their minimum car rental age from 25 to 22.
Not only is the company allowing people aged 22-24 to rent cars from them, Silvercar isn’t even charging an additional fee to renters who are that age.
Silvercar is unique in that they exclusively rent out Audi A4s & the transactions are done via smartphone. As an added bonus, you can also earn Virgin America Elevate points at a rate of 4 per $1 spent on Silvercar.
Here’s more about them from their site:
- A better car: Every Silvercar is an Audi A4, known for balanced performance, refined interiors, and smart technology.
- A better experience: Silvercar delivers a fast, frictionless experience, with no lines — and no upsells.
- Mobile lifestyle integration: Smartphone enablement lets customers reserve, unlock, get receipts, and more; with included navigation, mobile Wi-Fi hotspot, and multi-media interface, Silvercar powers a customized, connected travel experience.
Silvercar is currently available at the following airports:
Austin – AUS
Dallas – Love
Dallas – DFW
Denver – DEN
Ft. Lauderdale – FLL
Los Angeles – LAX
Miami – MIA
Phoenix – PHX
San Francisco – SFO
The company has been growing rapidly, so hopefully younger travelers who are under age 25 & want to rent a car will have even more options soon as they become available at more airports.
