Not the best in smaller cities

Turo seems to be best if you are going to be using the platform in a larger city or near an airport that has more options. I was looking to book a trip in my home town to travel to a funeral locate about 250 miles away. Using the app to book my trip was user friendly and rather simple to do, however my host was unresponsive. I contacted my host each day for my upcoming trip however no response. I contacted Turo directly and their suggested solutions guided me to wait for at least 3 days, which I did and I was instructed to wait another hour for them to reach out to the host. All reasonable. After about 1 hour and 15 mins the host cancelled my trip less than 24 hours prior to my scheduled trip. THIS IS NOT TURO’s FAULT. My issue is with the resolution, like I said I am traveling for a funeral, and booking a trip in less than 24 hours for the same timeframe with Turo or any other traditional rental company proved to be impossible. I am now stuck waiting 8 hours later to start my trip. My suggestion, partner with your super hosts or a major rental company so your guests can have an worry-free booking option that may cost a bit more but will give certainty that all your customers will always have a safety net in case a host backs out. Maybe test in in your smaller cities. I will say I thanks to Clark and Dan who helped me as early as 11 and said with me to nearly 10, they did everything in their capabilities to assist.

Cancelled without telling me!

They booked a trip and paid for it. I took an Uber to the pick up address on the day that I was supposed to at the exact time I’m supposed to. I show up and the lady tells me that my reservation was canceled last night. I look on my email and on the app and it says that my trip is starting. She tells me it’s between me and Turo. Apparently Turo decided to cancel my reservation without telling me so they could review my account without sending me an email or notification. Now I’m sitting in front of this lady‘s house like a homeless person beyond embarrassed waiting for an Uber to pick me up. Completely ruined my vacation. Had they let me know in advance I could’ve made other plans. I took off work for this! Turo then emailed me several times telling me that I needed to send them pictures of myself in front of my drivers license and pictures of the card that I used to purchase. I did these things even though I used Apple Pay which was promoted by this app, they continue to ask me for more detailed photos of my card even though the photo that I sent them was in HDR. I told them point-blank it doesn’t make any sense for you to need that many photographs of my card when I used Apple Pay and I already went through this entire process with Apple Pay. The entire scenario was very weird and very sketchy. I’m going with enterprise next time. It’s cheaper and they’re nice to me and I have very little chance of credit card theft.

Developer Response ,

We strive to create a reliable, fun, and memorable experience for our guests and hosts alike. That definitely is not the kind of Turo experience we expect our guests to have and we feel badly about the impact it had on your day and your experience with us. Would you please email us by going to support.turo.com so that we can look into this issue further.

Worst Car Service

Picking the car with my mom the first time after flying to the east coast back to the west coast twice in two days should have been a sign to abort using the app. After waiting almost 3 hours to get the car unlocked the young lady did give my mother a $50 credit. Even though that’s an hour for the car we appreciated the gesture. Throughout the process, we had problem after problem after problem with the app. Trying to extend, staying in communication with the owner and reps at Turo was worse then burning in the land of fire. We inform the app that we need to extend the ride longer and they contacted David, who’s white 2013 BMW 320i he approved. Yes I have the entire conversation and yes Turo and David act as if they did not know. David’s car has to be booked at least 3 or 5 days to use it. We only needed 2. So they had to get permission from David in order to approve the extension. Also, David asked if we’d drop the car off to Turo valet but which was like trying to put your wrist through the little hole of a sowing needle. Mother had the BMW cleaned inside and out. She had to rush to the airport to get back to my sister who had surgery. The reason why we flow back and forth a stated earlier. They tried to charge us for a cleaning, plus acted as if we had the car longer than we were suppose to. So if you use this app, save every conversation with the support team and your host. One of the worst rental car service ever used. I do not recommend.
