Silvercar, the mobile-only, app-based car rental company that stocks only silver Audi A4s in fleet, has entered the Orlando market.

Renters can expect a flat rate of approximately $49 per day for the 2017 models, with only a $5 refueling surcharge, no mileage restrictions, no additional fees for toll charges or car seats.

Orlando is the most recent city to join Silvercar's 17 nationwide locations. "Orlando has so much to offer, from world-class golfing and shopping to universities and theme parks," said Silvercar's head of communications, Courtney Lowell. "Getting from point to point should be part of the experience, not a hurdle."

Agents receive a 25% commission on all Silvercar reservations via a booking portal that is integrated with the GDS, as announced at the recent ASTA Conference in San Diego. Though agents can book for clients through the portal, the renter must download the app to manage the reservation on their smartphone.
