Car rental, at least at the airport, hasn’t really changed in a long time. Texas-based Silver Car is looking to change all that. The company just launched in Chicago, and to date has grown from two airports in Texas to nearly 10 in the past two years. The service uses a fleet of their own Audi A4 vehicles and an application platform to make sure that you always have a ride.
We just completed a nice ski vacation in Utah, traveling from NorCal in our own car. I had a ski box and winter tires on it, and everything went off without a hitch. However, the drive is a major drag. 11-12 hours of Nevada desert, crossing endless summits until you get to Salt Lake City.
Done this twice, and not really looking to do it again.
