Excellent service, will use Silvercar again for sure!
I loved everything about my Silvercar experience - how easy it was to book the car via the Silvercar app, the valet service when I arrived at the location (you text Silvercar when you're about 10 minutes away, and they'll get the car out of the garage for you in that time), the to-the-point introduction to the Audi A4 and the car itself which drove like a dream! I was so happy that I didn't have to wait in line at a rental car office - instead I opened the car via the app (it scans a bar code on the car) and was ready to go within five minutes.
At first I thought the location was a bit out of the way (near the Lincoln Tunnel in Midtown Manhattan) but once I hit the West Side Highway, the location made complete sense to me - you can leave Manhattan within minutes, which is what most people who rent a car do anyway.
For the exclusive feel of the experience I think value for money is very good and on par with luxury cars at other rental agencies.
The car, an Audi A4 - which is what all Silvercar locations use - is fabulous and comes with all the amenities of a new premium car and comes with Wi-fi and Bluetooth (I was able to connect my iPhone via both to the car without any problems), EZ pass for easy toll tracking and a navigation system. I found the navigation system a bit hard to use, but since I had my phone connected to wifi, I just used Google Maps for directions instead.
Thumbs up for Silvercar.
