Silvercar Opens Temporary Second Location in Austin, Texas

Silvercar, the all-Audi car rental service, expanded to Austin, Texas for the South by Southwest (SXSW) festival and the GRAND-AM Road Racing series at the Circuit of America track.

Silvercars are available to rent in Austin from Feb. 28 to March 18.

The company’s temporary location is outside Austin-Bergstrom International Airport grounds and Silvercar said they will valet travelers to and from the terminal.

“We hope and expect the next month’s success in Austin to ultimately translate into one of Silvercar’s next permanent rental operations,” said Silvercar CEO Luke Schneider. “Headquartered in Austin, Silvercar has strong ties to the community and is thrilled to offer GRAND-AM and SXSW attendees a chance to enjoy a reimagined car rental experience.”

    I WOULD LIKE TO RENT ONE OF THESE CARS FROM SILVER FOR SXSW BUT WHERE IS THERE TEMPORARY LOCATION IN AUSTIN???..

    Hi Magdelyn, here's how you can get a Silvercar: upon arrival, customers are valeted to Silvercar's facility situated on the way to downtown Austin at Airport Commerce Park. Here customers will both choose their Silvercar to being their trip and return it. Upon returned, customers will be valeted back to the terminal to the airline of their choice.
    Thanks,
    Cassie
