The TRUTH about Turo

I have used Turo as a customer & have put my very own cars on the site to make extra money. I see a few customer complaints about negative experiences they have had when renting a vehicle with unreliable host. I acknowledge they may have had those experiences but I think people need to pay attention to the details. If you just pick the bottom of the line price without seeing if your host has a 5 star rating, then there is a good chance the experience may not be up to par. I would suggest using the filters & only using 5 star hosts & then call them in advance & make 100% sure they actually deliver curbside if that’s what you require. I wish more hosts were honest & not so scammy as it makes the company look bad. I personally am a 5 star host & I always deliver a top notch experience for my clients. I do ACTUAL curbside service & suggest people should select favorite when they have good experiences & try to deal with the same hosts if possible. I’m thankful for the innovations of this company as being a way to make money with a depreciating liability & turning it into a depreciating asset. From the customer side this app is really fun in that if you’re savvy then you can usually get a MUCH better car for the same money on Turo as opposed to typical car rental companies. I love Turo! ❤️

Life saver

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.

Mehhh...

With other car sharing services like Zipcar (among others) around here in San Francisco, it seems kind of ridiculous to have to pay such steep “service fees”. As an example, if you’d like to rent a car for $120 a day: You would be expected to pay an additional $30 for the minimum insurance and the an additional $112 as a “service fee” (WHAT?) With an app like Uber you still have to pay a fee however at least you essentially have a “chauffeur” driving you around for a couple days and it’s still not as expensive. On the other hand, most Turo car owners will have a mileage limit and then charge you for every miler you go over. Yes you heard that right. So not only are you driving yourself, but you’re paying per mile to continue to use the vehicle on top of the hundreds you’ve already spent on gas, mileage fees, anywhere you park, and then “service fees” to top it all off. So essentially the price to use the app is almost as much as renting the car alone. 🤦‍♂️

I would say this is a great app if you want to have the opportunity to drive a nicer car for a day. But as a practical car sharing app (the only reason I gave it an extra star), it really doesn’t give you a good bang for your buck.

Turo has a great opportunity to have a truly groundbreaking business model but are missing opportunities to really catch on by having such nonsensical fees.
