What Is Silvercar by Audi?
Silvercar by Audi is a very unique rental company. Based only in major cities, Silvercar by Audi is a rental car company that only rents out Audi vehicles. You can rent either an A4, A5, Q5, or Q7 vehicle.
Each Silvercar by Audi vehicle is equipped with top-notch features such as in-car Wi-Fi, Sirius XM radio, a sunroof, heated seats, and other loaded premium amenities.
Silvercar by Audi used to be much more beneficial for travel as the company had branches located at major airports throughout the country. Unfortunately, the company’s business model changed and it now partners with local Audi dealers instead to offer rentals, having removed all on-site airport locations.
Now, if you want to fly into a particular city and rent a vehicle, you’ll need to make your way to the designated closest Audi dealership to rent. However, because Silvercar by Audi only offers ultra-premium vehicles, this small hassle could be well worth it. Some Silvercar by Audi dealerships may be able to pick you up from a nearby airport free of charge and drop you off on your return, however, this should be coordinated in advance if it is available.
Depending on the vehicle you’re renting, Silvercar by Audi traditionally prices daily rentals at anywhere between $50 and $125 a day, which can be quite reasonable considering the car you’re getting.
Hot Tip: While you won’t find primary rental car insurance on Amex cards, secondary rental car insurance is included. You can also purchase Premium Car Rental Protection for 1 low fee that covers the entire rental period (with prices ranging from $12.25 to $24.95).
In a new Amex Offer, you’ll save $100 back on any Silvercar by Audi rental of $450 or more, so long as the rental is completed by September 30, 2022. If you see the offer on your card, make sure to click Add to Card to apply the offer to your card before your purchase.
You can make the Silvercar by Audi reservation either on the website or through the mobile app (iOS, Android), both offering the same rental experience. Silvercar by Audi touts itself on not adding extra fees onto rentals, however, if you’re a younger renter you may be charged an underage fee.
Like most Amex Offers, the transaction doesn’t need to be completed in 1 purchase, so if you have multiple Silvercar by Audi rentals, the total of all charges must exceed $450 for you to receive the $100 credit back.

Silvercar by Audi used to be known as one of the best rental car companies, offering both fantastic rates and vehicles, however, now that it does not have airport rental locations, it is far less useful. That said, a $100 discount is significant, and you may find use in renting one of Silvercar by Audi’s vehicles, even if you’re not traveling.
