Silvercar’s bringing its all-Audi A4 fleet to two new cities: Seattle and Orlando. The company announced today that it’s going to launch a new outpost at Seattle-Tacoma International Airport (SEA), beginning on July 31, 2017, and at Orlando International Airport (MCO) on August 28, 2017. Beginning today, however, you can make reservations for both of the new cities.
The company, which was acquired by Audi earlier this year, allows travelers to streamline the process of renting a car. What is typically a pretty tedious process, Silvercar allows users to rent one of its A4s through its app. Plus, each of the cars comes with complimentary GPS, Wi-Fi, satellite radio and fair toll pricing. If you elect to have the gas tank filled upon drop off, you’ll be charged market price in addition to a $5 fill-up fee.
TPG staffers and contributors who have tried Silvercar have had great experiences with the service and have found the prices to be reasonable. As a reminder, Silvercar is already available in the 16 following markets:
- Austin (AUS)
- Chicago (ORD)
- Dallas (DAL)
- Denver (DEN)
- Fort Lauderdale (FLL)
- Las Vegas (LAS)
- Los Angeles (LAX)
- Miami (MIA)
- Miami – South Beach
- Newark (EWR)
- NYC – Brooklyn
- NYC – Brooklyn Downtown
- NYC – Manhattan
- Phoenix (PHX)
- San Francisco (SFO)
