Silvercar, an all-Audi airport car rental service, recently launched their 6th location at Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport. They are definitely shaking things up in terms of how they are working with the airport to provide a different kind of car rental service unlike any other.
Here is how it works:
Upon landing at PHX, travelers use the Silvercar mobile app to notify the local Silvercar concierge team of their arrival with the tap of a button. From that point, the app navigates the customer through the airport—with the ability to text with the concierge team—to the pickup point where an awaiting concierge valets the customer to the Silvercar location two minutes away. Customers then use the mobile app to unlock their own silver Audi A4 by scanning a QR code on the vehicle's windshield. The keys are waiting inside and the customer is able to drive right off. "Silvercar is a bit of Uber meets Virgin America meets Audi all-in-one—designed to simplify and upgrade the airport car rental experience," CEO Luke Schneider added. Each Silvercar is equipped with Google Earth GPS navigation, SiriusXM satellite radio, in-car Wi-Fi and a toll tag, all at no additional charge. A simple fuel plan streamlines the return process by charging customers the local market rate for the precise amount of fuel they've used, plus a five-dollar service fee. The receipt is automatically emailed to the customer upon return and also available in the mobile app. Silvercar is currently offering an introductory rate at PHX for $59 a day, normally $89 on weekdays and $59 on weekends. Earlier this month, the company announced Miami International Airport was next on its launch schedule.
Additional details will be announced on their blog later this month.
