This doesn't come cheap, of course.
Owning a luxury car can be a wonderful experience, but the difference can also be jarring when you take a vacation and have to rent a car. Of course, you could just rent the same car you drive regularly, but most rental lots don't just have a brand-new Audi available, for example. So as an added bonus for its customers, Audi has just introduced a new program called 'Always Audi.' The program will be available for any customer who purchases or leases a 2019 or newer Audi, giving them seven complimentary rental days from Silvercar by Audi. Now, Audi owners will never have to travel in a terrible rental car.
"This new offering deepens our ties with Silvercar and offers customers even more ways to experience Audi," said Cian O'Brien, interim president and chief operating officer, Audi of America. "With this program, our customers can drive the Audi they love even when they're away from home." Audi purchased Silvercar back in 2017 and even uses the service for its $1,395-per-month subscription service.
Always Audi will give customers access to four rental models including the A4 sedan, A5 Cabriolet, Q5 SUV, and Q7 three-row SUV. So whether you need a practical family hauler or a fun car to drive on vacation, the service has the right car for you.
"Together, Silvercar and Audi create a network that gives customers choice and access to the brand in a way that best fits their lifestyle," said Silvercar CEO Matt Carpenter. "This new program is an industry first for the premium market in which our customers now have a direct link between their Audi ownership experience and their on-the-go transportation needs."
Silvercar is now available in 26 locations nationwide and all cars are offered with complementary Peg Perego premium car seats, pet carriers, onboard Wi-Fi, GPS navigation, and SiriusXM satellite radio.
