When I consider a car rental, my stress level begins to rise. The thought of traveling with two children after pulling their devices from their clutches after a 6 hour flight, and having to visit a car rental office makes me reach for the mommy juice. Waiting on line, filling out papers, providing credit card information, waiting, waiting, waiting. Then having a beat up vehicle arrive. Swear years ago we had the worst hooptie, after a hail storm took out a rental cars fleet. Definitely not a car to pull up to The Ivy in, not to mention this is no way to begin any vacation.
Welcome to 2018, and the ability to control your experiences via an app. We downloaded SilverCar and were amazed by how seamless it was to create a reservation. Within minutes we choose our location, dates, times, and vehicle. Let’s not skip over the fact that all the extras, navigation, wifi, bluetooth, apple carplay, android auto, tool tracking and a car seat comes at no additional cost!
