silvercar-pic

My favorite rental car experiences in recent years have all been with Silvercar and their all-Audi fleet. I used them most recently on a one day trip to Austin I took last month that I with just my toddler in tow. Having Silvercar pick us up and drop us off at the airport terminal, provide a good complimentary car seat, and not charge outrageous prices for tolls and gas made the experience so much easier than it could have been with a…

One-Way Hertz Rentals From $9.99 to Florida and Atlanta!

Cruising in a Hertz convertible

While I often fly to get from Point A to Point B as quickly as possible, there is something special and iconic about a leisurely road trip where you can sightsee, stop, and explore at will. I personally love the idea of a true one-way road trip where the point can really be to enjoy the journey without having to double back to turn in the car. The biggest problem with that one-way road trip strategy is, as I bet you…

Earn 11,500 Bonus United Miles on Two Hertz Rentals (Targeted)

Back in the long ago times of the US Airways Grand Slam I remember multiple visits to the local Hertz car rental agency to rent a car solely to earn the related bonus airline miles. It got to the point where we didn’t even have to actually take the car we rented anywhere since we got to know the staff so well. If that sounds crazy, it totally is. But, it was also well worth it as the miles we were earning were…

This is a guest post from my dad, Grandpa Points. He and my mom are in their mid-60’s, are (mostly) retired, and are ticking off “bucket list” destinations quicker than they ever thought possible thanks to miles, points, and travel deals. They have an intense love of this country, of its National Parks and treasures, and have no problem with a clean budget hotel room and an economy airline seat on a budget airline as long as it gets them…

Silvercar Discount Code for Existing Customers

Silvercar 30 off

A couple of weeks ago I outlined how the all-Audi rental car company, Silvercar, was actually the cheapest rental car option for my parents on their upcoming trip to Colorado. This relatively inexpensive price was due to stacking some referral opportunities and discount codes only available to first-time renters.   Similar deal stacking opportunity are great for first time renters, but what about those of us who have used Silvercar before? Read all about my experience using Silvercar with a family here. Sadly the best…

Saving Big Money on a Rental Car by Choosing an Audi!

Silvercar

My parents are sneaking in a short trip to their beloved state of Colorado soon to see some snow piled up on the sides of a road when it first opens for the season. Something about Trail Ridge Road…I don’t really know, but they are super excited about it and that is what matters to me. They really hemmed and hawed on whether or not they should go because even with $49 Frontier flights and budget hotel stays, costs do…

Two Great New Locations for Silvercar + Increased Referral Bonus!

Big news for those who fly into Newark, but hate the traditional rental car process (me, me, me!) as Silvercar is coming to Newark beginning May 9th! I’ll admit to not pricing rental cars in the NYC area as much in the last few years as in years passed when I lived there, but I’m pretty certain that prices in that market are still much higher than in many other cities. In other words, the incremental price difference to rent an Audi…
