Silvercar is one of the cooler car services in the country, a rental car agency that only rents silver Audi A4s. It’s like a rental car, only not trash. Now Audi has brought the whole thing under its wing.
For those of you who complain that rental car kiosks no longer offer anything more interesting than soon-to-be salvage titled Corvettes, I present you with this flamethrowing 1967 Pontiac GTO, used in the upcoming film, XXX: Return of Xander Cage, offered by Turo.
Like Airbnb, Turo is a peer-to-peer car-sharing service that lets people rent their cars out to others. And I mean any car. Is it wise to allow a total stranger to rent your nice and good car? I say absolutely not! But for those who are willing to try, there’s a shocking amount of interesting, decent things to rent.
If given the option, it can be hard not to connect your smartphone to a rental car—especially when that’s what you’re used to in your own vehicle. But doing so could give others access to enough of your personal information to track you down at your own home and tell you what you did all week.
There are two ways you can look down on Silicon Valley’s most insufferable and their “billionaire doors.” One is to roll through in an AMG G65 and literally look down at them. Or even better: you can pretend to be Silicon Valley’s self-centered anti-hero Erlich Bachman by renting the miserable Ford Escape from the…
Most of the writers here got their start in more humble ways like “applying” or “writing a lot on OppositeLock.” I did a lot of that last one, too. But before that, I also owned Jalopnik’s then-editor-in-chief Matt Hardigree in the ultimate regular-car track battle first—and I’ve waited nearly four years to gloat.
Have you ever considered buying a former rental car? I personally am against it, but hey, you can do whatever you want. Just know what you are getting into first.
It was 40 degrees and raining when my plane touched down at Cleveland-Hopkins International Airport around 1 a.m. A series of delays in Chicago pushed my flight from late night to red eye, and my eyes were very red. After a full day of work and a seemingly interminable layover in a strange airport, I wanted nothing…
Uber is partnering with Enterprise Rent-A-Car, and—as the slogan goes—they’ll pick you up! By “they” I mean the poor schmucks who sign up to pay around $1000 a month to work for Uber.
If you’ve ever had to rent a car, you’ve probably dealt with the extreme disappointment that comes with getting the wrong rental car. But you don’t always have to get a bad rental. Here’s how to make sure you’re not leaving the airport in a hunk of junk.
I have recently come to the conclusion that renting a car in today’s world is the closest we come to dealing with real-life pop-up ads.
What happens when you give a bunch of skater punks a rental car? Well, let’s say the extra $9 a day insurance got used in full.
I recently had the chance to drive a Fiat 500L in Istanbul, Turkey, a wonderful Eastern European city that’s home to a wide range of beautiful mosques, and excellent restaurants, and lovely neighborhoods, and people who drive like they’re fleeing the Kraken.
Let's say you find yourself with a V6 2013 Camaro out of some rental fleet. How much could you abuse the car in just 24 hours? These guys appeared to have found out.
We were sent a tip, from Canada, claiming that a man in a Chevy Malibu was busted going 226 KPH, or 140 MPH, on a highway in Nova Scotia. I immediately discounted this, as the thought of any Malibu doing 140 is frankly absurd, let alone in Canada. But then I saw the buried lead. It was a rental.
A start-up car rental company called FlightCar rents out privately-owned vehicles while their owners travel. Who wouldn't like to make a few extra bucks while they travel, but would you feel comfortable letting a complete stranger drive your car for several days?
So I'm driving along the other day, and I get up behind a Chrysler 200 that's moving at approximately the same speed as tree growth. As a car enthusiast, I know exactly what this means: Avis ran out of Chevy Malibus, and this guy is the victim.
Not all rental car companies are staffed by incompetent morons and run with red tape. When you need to rent a car, look for one of these signs.
I was going to ask what's the best car sharing program, but there aren't enough of them yet to fill up a good top ten. So in the meantime, what's the best car rental company?
