There’s a Virgin America promotion code with Silvercar for $75 off a 2-day rental for first time Silvercar users, and Silvercar offers $25 to first-time renters who are referred by existing customers.
- First time Silvercar users get $25 when referred by someone (and the referrer gets $25 as well). This is my referral link, feel free to leave yours in the comments if you’d like.
- Doctor of Credit says that promo code Elevate75 will take $75 off a first time Silvercar rental, or 15% off if you’re an existing customer. Testing the code myself it works for new customers for rentals of 2 days or more. It didn’t want to work for my existing account at all.
When you rent from Silvercar, their all-inclusive model comes with free GPS, wifi, and satellite radio. You pay only actual tolls (no administrative charges) and can pay a flat $5 and they’ll refuel your car at market rate.
No $9.79 per gallon charges, and no filling up at the gas station near rental car return charging nearly $5 a gallon.
These aren’t cheap rentals, they start at $49 a day in some locations but that’s often cheaper than I can get midweek airport rentals and it’s not that much more than rental agencies charge much of the rest of the time — plus you get a nice car and nice set of features.
Silvercar has airport locations in:
- Chicago O’Hare
- Dallas Love Field
- Dallas Ft. Worth
- Fort Lauderdale
- Los Angeles
- San Francisco
I’m always on the lookout for Silvercar discounts, especially those that can be used by existing customers, because I really have come to prefer renting from them. I only wish they were in more cities. Oddly enough their core customers aren’t elite business travelers. And certainly the Virgin America brand tie-in makes some sense. It just means I’m an atypical fan.
Update: via commenter Jonathan promo code ELEVATE15 will work for existing customers to take 15% their next rental.
