We bought airline tix for a one day trip to the Big Island only to find out there were no car rentals available at all, on the entire island. Tried to cancel the flights since it was within 24 hours of purchase but low and behold you can't cancel if the trip is within 7 days. So I called a friend who lives there and she told me about Turo. I was able to get a really good 4x4 Jeep for a little more than a rental agency would have charged which seemed reasonable with peak pricing. The owner met us a the curb and was very sweet. I was much more careful with this car because I felt like I knew the owner, I basically treated it like I treat my own car - didn't get it dirty like I might with a rental. The ratings from renters who've had problems with insurance give me pause, but it's not super easy dealing with rental companies insurance either. I think I will probably keep using rental car companies just because I felt more nervous and responsible driving a nice persons car, but Turo worked great for us. I'm impressed by the app, and their ability to screen/qualify drivers and renters within minutes. Very convenient service.
Turo is great
All these people complaining about shady policies and hosts. These people are putting their personal property on the line for the benefit of others to use. The application has set up policies to ensure that they have the car owners backs when renting out their automobiles. If you don’t read the policies then it’s your own fault for not spending a few moments to get familiar with how Turo operates. So if you have a problem with being accountable and documenting the cars condition before and after a trip (like every car rental agency does FOR YOU) then stick to Enterprise or Budget car rental. You are paying more money to agencies like this because they do this legwork for you. In my experience Turo was extremely easy to use, and my first host was very accommodating and professional. In my unattended car rental scenario: I washed the car as if it were my own, went around the car and took pictures corner to corner, bumper to bumper, took a picture of the gauge cluster full of fuel and noting the mileage, left the key in the provided lock box and went on my merry way. Easy peasy.
Good app, but Filtering and rental extension could improve
This app is mostly what I expected when I downloaded it, great way to rent from local individuals which greatly expands the variety of cars you can rent vs using traditional rental services. App needs more filtering options within the car search, for example, when I have family members coming to town and need a large SUV that seats 6+, there’s no option for filtering results based upon # of seats (even though this data is captured from car owners and displayed on most car listings). So I’m left sifting through a bunch of SUVs to find any that have enough seats and suit our other desired features. Also, the rental extension can be very tricky. I was stuck in traffic and knew I’d be a little late returning a vehicle, but instead of an hour or two extension, Turo only gave me the option to add an additional DAY. Apparently, sometimes they allow extensions and other times you have to add an entire day??
