Presidents Day weekend can’t come soon enough, and for many people that means driving out of town for a quick getaway. Nearly 50 million Americans hit the road this past Thanksgiving amidst storm warnings and heavy traffic. Before braving the next holiday bumper-to-bumper chaos, every road tripper should consider renting a fully loaded luxury vehicle from Audi’s innovative Silvercar service. Whether you’re heading to the Grand Canyon, Death Valley, Hoover Dam or beyond, the Silvercar experience will make your trip a comfortable one.
Though Silvercar has been around since 2012, it started service at McCarran International Airport in 2015, giving travelers the option to arrive at their final destinations in style. Appearances aside, the rental experience is as easy as it gets starting with the reservation system, which is app-based. Although the shuttle ride from the airport to the vehicle warehouse can add a good 20 minutes to your itinerary, the tradeoff is you won’t need to wait in any annoying lines at a rental counter. Once you arrive at the Silvercar station—where the predominantly silver fleet includes a selection of A4s, A5s, Q5s and Q7s—a friendly and knowledgable attendant escorts you to your chosen Audi equipped with features such as onboard Wi-Fi, GPS navigation and satellite radio that would normally cost extra at a standard rental company. After a quick vehicle inspection, you are free to go!
The hardest part is returning the car—not because the process is difficult (it’s even simpler than picking it up)—but because the Audi is so great, you won’t want to give it back. 7220 Dean Martin Drive, Ste. 600, 702.560.5792, silvercar.com
