Silvercar, the app-based car rental operation, has announced a new partnership with private fly service company Rise. It will offer its all-Audi A4 car rental service to Rise members at a special rate — when they fly into either Austin or Dallas airports.

Silvercar will offer Rise members an introductory Silvercar rate of just $49.99 per day through Sep. 30. Now after landing, Rise members can hop into a silver Audi A4 with navigation, Wi-Fi and Sirius Radio.

“I remember the first time I was introduced to Silvercar,” said Clynt Taylor, co-founder and chief governance officer of Rise. “What a great concept — eliminate the hassles of car rental and drive an Audi for about the same price as other car rentals. Partnering with Silvercar makes perfect sense for our members who value their time and want to drive the way they fly.”

Silvercar customers can also benefit from the new partnership, according to the company. Through Sep. 30, Rise will offer Silvercar customers a special introductory discount of 50% of the initial $750 initiation fee to become a Rise member.

“Both Rise and Silvercar customers are looking for ways to travel better, making this an ideal partnership,” said Russ Lemmer, Silvercar’s vice president of marketing. “We look forward to introducing Rise customers to our award-winning service and also exposing our customer base to a like-minded brand like Rise.”

Currently, Silvercar has locations in Austin, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Dallas, Miami, Fort Lauderdale, Denver, Chicago and Phoenix.
