Can You Rent A Tesla? Yes, But You Need To Know Where To Look.

Tesla Rental

Enthralled by Tesla vehicles? Sitting on the waitlist for the Tesla Model 3 like many of our friends? While it's not possible to move up the Model 3 waitlist (without upgrading the Model 3 to make it cost as much as the Model S), there are many options to rent Teslas, whether through affiliates of traditional rental car companies or through start-up firms that specialize in Tesla vehicles. After all, what other vehicle on the highway can be placed into "Launch Mode" and accelerate from 0-60 in under 2.3 seconds!

Silvercar Adds a Third Model to Their Fleet, the Audi A5 Cabriolet

Audi A5 Cabriolet

Our team likes renting from Silvercar for a number of reasons. Now owned by Audi, the company has only rented Audis from the inception of the firm. The first vehicle in the fleet was the Audi A4, which we enjoyed in Las Vegas and tested out all of the included features such as on-board navigation and WiFi. Earlier this year, the company added a second reservable model to the fleet, the Audi Q5 SUV. Silvercar then partnered with Peg Perego to provide child safety seats for free in their Audis (subject to availability). Last month, the company introduced a summer contest where the grand prize was an Audi A5 Cabriolet and our blog noted that it didn't make much sense for Silvercar to give away a car the company did not rent unless the A5 Cabriolet was the third addition to the fleet.

How to Ensure Loyalty Program Credit when Booking Through Priceline

Priceline Logo

Readers of the AutoSlash blog know that we're great fans of using the loyalty programs of various rental car companies. Top-tier programs aimed toward business travelers such as Avis Preferred, Gold Plus Rewards (Hertz), and Emerald Club (National) allow renters to skip rental car counters, select their own vehicles (often upgrades), and earn credits toward free rental days. Mid-range loyalty programs tend to offer a subset of those benefits, such as earning credits toward free rental days with a quicker counter experience. Bottom-tier loyalty programs (looking your way, Payless) don't really add much -- if any -- value at all. We take advantage of every benefit available and know that even when booking with Priceline, members of most frequent renter programs are still eligible for benefits directly from the rental car companies!

Enterprise, Sir Rosevelt, and Cirque du Soleil Give Away Every Ticket to a Summer Event

Enterprise/Sir Rosevelt Tickets

In what's described as a first-ever implementation of an idea, Enterprise is partnering with Sir Rosevelt and Cirque du Soleil to create an entertainment event. The concept of Share the Code: Hit the Road is that every ticket is given out by other members of the audience through personal networks; an audience-constructed audience. We all know Enterprise (the world's largest rental car company) and Cirque du Soleil (Canadian display of circus arts) but Sir Rosevelt? Sir Rosevelt happens to be Zac Brown's side project (the Zac Brown Band still exists and tours) where he and a few friends combine southern influences with Electronic Dance Music. Yes, Zac Brown has an EDM band and Enterprise is trying to create a unique experience. We would say they succeeded!
