I had no credit card and wasn’t charged a security deposit either

Here’s a quick piece of advice for anybody that runs into this problem .. the very first time that I ever tried to sign up and rent.. after I’m putting my drivers license and everything I was declined and I couldn’t figure out why so I tried it again. The problem was that my drivers license DOES have my middle name but on the app, I only put my first name and my last name. I had to figure this out for myself and reapply starting from scratch because the app didn’t give me an option to edit or fix the issue. (or maybe it did but it wouldn’t have been instant, and I needed to rent a car fast at the time). That is the one and only issue I’ve ever come across using this app.

app itself is Very simple. easy to use &straightforward . They offer their own damage protection starting at just $10/day for coverage.
I was having a hard time finding somewhere to rent a car since I didn’t have a credit card. I found other options, but those ones wanted a big security deposit since I didn’t have a credit card. Turo was such a blessing to find. I was able to rent a nice car for cheap no extra deposit or credit card required. .. I mean all at all with the damage protection that I purchased plus any tax, extra fees , etc involved I picked up a car on Thursday evening dropped it off on Sunday evening and paid less then $170 for everything .
My host was great, and very quick and easy to communicate with.

Love this app!

I used Turo for the first time on a recent trip to Kauai (Sept 2021). I couldn’t find a single rental car on the island a few months before our trip and asked friends for advice and one told me there was an app for cars similar to vrbo for houses. I set up my profile and found a car I liked, and then everything went very smoothly on our trip. I now would likely prefer this to a traditional car rental service, or at least will always compare prices and availability in locations with both rentals and Turo. I wish I’d thought of this! The only improvement I can think of is pick up and drop off. We paid extra to have the car brought to our hotel versus picking it up at the airport. We didn’t need it for our entire trip and it was a few hundred dollars a day, so thought we’d save some money. If the “host” lives closer to your drop-off location than the airport, not sure why it needs to cost more. Would seem better for them as well. So seems like there could be up front discussion of location and then fees set only if the requested unique drop-off is less convenient for the host. Also, our host seemed to not be clear that we’d also paid for pick-up at the hotel (although very clear to me in the booking details) and it created a lot of back and forth messages on date of pick up. App needs to make sure host is clear on locations to avoid hassle for the guest when trying to enjoy vacation.

The Way it Should Be Done

I’m not sure why renting a car before the Turo app was seemingly in the dark ages, but today renting a car through their platform shows that it should have been down this way from the start. You choose the exact car you want, not from a fleet of “Ford Explorer or comparable”. It’s way cheaper than the big guys, by a lot, and this is still including the highest Turo insurance that you can get which covers everything. Many times you can get unlimited miles if you have a lengthy trip. Hosts at this point have many trips under their belts and have reliable reviews that you can trust. Very importantly, the host knows the car and will demo everything in detail instead of just handing over the keys and sending you on your way. Also, while you can get the car delivered, I have not been inconvenienced by a short Uber trip to pick the car up, being that there are now endless hosts using the platform which means a car is never more than a 10 minute drive away. My personal car Is about a decade old and I’d rather not put the wear and tear on it, but I also don’t want a new car payment. My company pays me pretty well per mile when I travel, so using Turo once a month for my longer trips definitely pays off and I don’t mind spending the money being that it really is so affordable compared to chain rental companies. All in all, Turo has really changed the game and you should give it a try!
