Enjoyed the car, it was a great rental and smooth and easy, came into town and had no issues. Really enjoyed the experience. I highly recommend the pick up and drop off for DFW. Easy to communicate with owners and very accommodating

This was my first time renting from Turo and I'm extremely pleased with the service, the car was clean, the instructions to access the vehicle were clear and precise. Overall I'm pleased with the service 😀

My host met us at the airport and helped us load in our carseats and luggage. He was terrific and so kind. We had a misunderstanding about our return trip that caused me a lot of stress, but he was apologetic and took care of the car cleaning for me. Otherwise, the entire experience was really fantastic

What I like about Turo is that I didn’t need a credit card to rent from Turo. Being someone trying to get my credit together. Im not able to rent cars from the airport or anywhere else. So I really appreciate Turo.

It has overall been a very good experience. Very convenient and hassle free. Traditional Car rental places have changed so much and not for the good so turo has been a blessing.

Feels like if I used turo frequently it would only be a matter of time before turo or a vehicle owner would hold me responsible for a vehicle issue or charge me more than the agreed upon amount. The experience is far from confidence inspiring. And the whole process of getting transport to and from a rental vehicle just adds hassle, time, and more costs to the whole process. I think Il probably stick to real car rentals and save myself the trouble before it happens.

It’s very convenient. I was so frustrated by Car rental places. There are tones of choices. May be in my opinion, if hosts reveal the mileages of their cars as they do the model years, it would be great.

Working with Ke, the owner of the car for pick up, drop off, and changing plans was much easier and more convenient than going through a rental car company. This is a great concept. I will do this every time I need a car.

I had a wonderful experience using Turo. I love that I was able to skip having to check in at a desk and I was able to find my car and retrieve the key from a lock box on the car. I highly recommend using turo!

Great experience. Loved knowing exactly the car I was getting. The cars vary and you can go with an exotic car or a 4x4 or a sedan depending on the situation. Love the service and the app!

I am a host on Turo with 2 cars and >20 trips for the past few years. It's clear in several ways that Turo only looks to minimize their costs and risk at the expensive of their guests and hosts, particularly the hosts. They boast a few different insurance options for damage to the interior and exterior. I don't have experience with this. However, mechanical damage is much less secure. If the vehicle is a manual 'stick' transmission and a guest ruins a clutch (this happened), there are two options. All damage has to be declared within 24h of the trip. That means you have to take it to tow it to a mechanic and have them demonstrate that the last driver is at fault for the clutch failure, and then send this to Turo for them to approve the repair. They do *not* pay for the *whole* repair. They prorate their reimbursement based on miles on the clutch divided by 75 thousand miles, an arbitrary life they selected for the clutch. My car was about 35k so they would have paid half, at most, if I was lucky. If the clutch is > 5 years old, they don't pay *nothing*. I cannot post the link, however it's at the top when googling 'Turo clutch policy'. I fortunately dealt with someone that was responsible and offered to pay for the job on their own. I expect most individuals to be less decent about accepting responsibility for their damages. If other mechanical issues arise, there is little way to demonstrate that a guest directly caused the issue. Their insurance policies do not cover your mechanical issues. You will foot the bill. Their insurance policies are shady. The host can select any level of coverage, let's say a 'standard' policy, pays a 25% fee, has a $500 deductible and otherwise no out of pocket for interior / exterior collision damage. The guest also selects their level of coverage, (premium, standard, basic, or none). They may select none, which Turo suggests they have their own insurance. They do not need to demonstrate proof that they have valid car insurance, let alone one that covers damages for driving another vehicle. Additionally, the cost is much more expensive when selecting any insurance for the guest. Turo collects takes anywhere from 20-35% from the host and charges up to double to the guest for taking the highest insurance. I spoke with several people at Turo about this confusion in how hosts can choose one level and guests choose another, or none. They had no way of explaining the mixed liability of damages. They had no explanation for how they would hold someone responsible for damages in the event of a collision and they don't actually have car insurance, and much less the subsequent burden to the host. If you let your guest use your E-Zpass and submit the screenshot of your E-Zpass log as the proof to request reimbursement, they do not accept this. The proof needs to include the license plate, and not the E-Zpass tag which is what's listed on the E-Zpass log. You will get wronged out of toll reimbursements. Many other reviews include instances where damages were assessed based on a much lower vehicle value than KBB or other fair pricing, and thus reimbursement was a fraction of what was owed to the owner. There are several other reviews where drivers and hosts describe being wronged by Turo and losing significant amounts of money. If you are a host, you are taking on significant risk lending your vehicle. They attempt to cover most bases, but there are plenty of ways things go wrong and shirk responsibility and costs. When they know their acting according to their policy, they make no exceptions nor apologies for shifting the costs onto the owner.

Getting a car through Turo is a great experience. The App is well thought out and easy to navigate. I've use Turo several times and the car owners have always been responsive and easy to work with.

I like Turo and ultimately had a good experience. The app was buggy for me, I wasn't able to pay with the credit card I wanted to use due to vague errors that provided no information as to what was wrong. Eventually I just used the card I already had on file and it worked.

I think that if the owner has a toll tag account and the driver takes the toll road that should be allocated in with the fee for the car. Other exotic car rental agencies do this and so should Turo. I also think that the tires should be inspected and they should be not heavily worn down when you’re renting an exotic vehicle. This definitely makes the handling of the car much rougher as well as dangerous.

I like turo, I think it’s somewhat cheaper to rent directly from people rather than Vehicle rental chains. But I give it a 3 because I’ve tried to contact the turo 24/7 support and I couldn’t get a hold of them. I had some small questions that I couldn’t get answered. I’d like some promo codes sent to my email more often too to save money. I’d also would like the advertising price not be at the week rate if I’m planning to just rent for a few days. The day rate and week rate have a big difference.

Good rental experience, mostly well laid out. Point of improvement:. Push a notification to users day before rental return, reminding them to complete return using the app and take pictures, as I was unaware of the rental closing procedure.

1st time. Because all the info is completed on the Turo website, to pick up the car, you just get the keys rather than taking 20 minutes at the rental counter to complete the contract. Easy return as well.

Given that this was my first experience with Turo, I can’t compare it to much, but it was a terrible first experience. I left a review for the owner, and, I thought, a separate review for Turo, but here I go again in the hopes that someone will reach out to me this time. In short, here were my biggest issues: 1) The car was not ready when I arrived. Not only was it not ready, but it took 20 minutes to even get the owner to respond to me when I called/messaged that I was at the pickup spot. Pickup ended up being 40 minutes late because the car wasn’t clean (spoiler, it still wasn’t clean when I picked it up). 2) The car was dirty, and smelled like marijuana. Gross, and very uncool. 3) There were a few warning lights on in the vehicle. This gave the impression that the vehicle needed work or at least maintenance, and was potentially unsafe to drive. 4) When I arrived early for drop off (after being assured the owner would be home all evening), I once again COULD NOT GET AHOLD OF THE OWNER. My goodness. I called, I messaged, but nothing. In a final effort, my husband knocked on the door and delivered the keys. Overall, this was a very negative experience. The car was in bad shape, even had it not been dirty and smelly and maybe broken. It was not as pictured. More than that, the pickup and drop off experience was terrible. With the car not even being ready on time, I believe I should be entitled to a partial refund. The owner told me that would be up to Turo, so I’m hoping that someone will reach out to me before these owners receive all of the money for only doing part of the work on their end.

Love using turo. I had a credit with you but then it disappeared on me. That I was not pleased with. Also the referral program was beneficial to introduce your company to others. Certainly more of an incentive to do so. What happened to that?

I hear it's a great service, but I'll never know, because something in my picture of myself got my application revoked. I went through the checkout process before being told: "You are not approved You’re currently unable to rent cars on Turo. If you believe there has been an error, please contact customer support." So I contacted Support. They verified my identity by asking my name, date of birth, and email. They then said that my approval needed additional review. They told me they would need a picture of my driver's license, a picture of me holding my driver's license, 7 years of my driving history, and proof of insurance. I said the 7 years of history might take some time for me to get, and the agent told me not to worry about it for now, that we could start with just the pictures. When I'd uploaded the picture of myself and my ID, he told me that no other identification was needed, that he would start the approval process and that he could do it faster if we ended the chat and he emailed me in 10 - 20 minutes. I offered my proof of insurance as I had it ready to send and he said not to worry, that he had everything he needed. I never fully agreed to end the chat, but he did anyway. Almost immediately I was sent a message from the agent, saying: "Unfortunately, we’re not able to approve you to participate in the Turo marketplace. Please note that this is our final decision." I returned to customer support assuming there must have been some mistake, explaining that all I provided to them was a picture of my Driver's License (which they had the number of on file, already) and a picture of myself. Logically, if the issue was in information they had before (including my driver's license information), they didn't need anything new from me. If the issue was a lack of information, I was willing to provide whatever they needed. The only thing that had changed was a picture of myself and I didn't want to assume any kind of discrimination was going on. This, second, support agent gave me the run-around for a while, then tried to explain that my driver's license and the picture of me were to validate my identity, not to grant me approval. There are two problems with this explanation: 1) They didn't ask for them with the account verification information (my name and date of birth and email), they asked for it along with my driving history and proof of insurance (clearly needed approval information) 2) It directly contradicts the email I was sent, which says "We have carefully reviewed your account, along with the additional documentation you submitted." (the "documentation" in question is how they referred to the pictures I sent them)

My first trip was a disaster, and I still haven’t received a refund for my groupon that I purchased, which is the only reason I decided to try this out. But my last two trips with Charles have been perfect, otherwise I would have given zero stars. If it wasn’t for him I probably wouldn’t have been back. Customer support is hard to get ahold of and difficult to deal with.
