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.
You can get $25 for signing up with Silvercar here and making your first rental. I will get $25 as well, so thank you in advance if you use my link! My referral code is JSACKS1
