The app-based rental car service Silvercar is expanding its footprint in the US by adding a new location to its portfolio. In 2018, the all-Audi A4 fleet will expand to Salt Lake City International Airport (SLC). While you won’t be able to rent a Silvercar in SLC until January 8, 2018, the service will begin taking reservations on Tuesday.
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, SiriusXM 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.
Most recently, Silvercar announced it was expanding to two other cities — Seattle (SEA) and Orlando (MCO), both of which are now open for business. With the addition of Salt Lake City, Silvercar is now available in the following 18 markets:
- Austin (AUS)
- Chicago (ORD)
- Dallas Love Field (DAL)
- Denver (DEN)
- Ft. Lauderdale (FLL)
- Las Vegas (LAS)
- Los Angeles (LAX)
- Miami (MIA)
- Miami — South Beach
- Newark (EWR)
- NYC — Brooklyn
- NYC — Brooklyn Downtown
- NYC — Manhattan
- Orlando (MCO)
- Phoenix (PHX)
- Salt Lake City (SLC)
- San Francisco (SFO)

TPG staffers and contributors who have tried Silvercar have had great experiences with the service and have found the prices to be reasonable, starting at $49 per day.
