Have you dreamed of renting a convertible in California on your next vacation but realistically you cannot because it would break the bank. If you cannot afford to buy a car from used cars for sale in gilbert even though they have affordable vehicles for everyone- than today it might just be possible to rent one. It’s the same with renting a room or renting out someone’s apartment. You can do that in some places more affordably than renting a hotel room. Plus you get a lot more space for the money that you spent. It’s called Airbnb, HomeAway, and VRBO when you want to rent someone else’s place. However with renting someone else’s vehicle you will go through Turo. It’s the same kind of idea as Airbnb but for vehicles. What you will want to do is create an account on the Turo website. You will then create your own profile, by adding some information like your email, phone number to be in contact with your hosts and a profile picture so they can see whom they are talking too. Your information will not be released to anyone, only the person that you are interested in renting his or her vehicle. Of course you can read about the person and most of the vehicles have been rented out on Turo unless the host added a new vehicle, so you should be able to read reviews as to what others thought of the host and their vehicles. It’s important to take into consideration that some of the vehicles on here are not all new, therefore they might not be in the best conditions. That is another reason why you will be renting the vehicles for such a good price. Of course the vehicles have to be in good working condition, so instead of paying a big company a lot of money to rent out one of their vehicles, why not support a local person and use theirs. The pro is you will rent a vehicle for cheaper and have extra money in your pocket.
If you are leery about the insurance policy, not to worry! You can purchase full coverage through the Turo platform or if you have coverage at home or with your credit card company that works with Turo too! If you do have coverage with your credit card company and you want to use that coverage to rent a vehicle through Turo- it’s important to decline any coverage with Turo or else the coverage with your credit card will not be accepted. It’s important to read the fine print to make sure you fully understand what you will be covered for incase anything happens to go wrong. This way you will be better safe than sorry. Turo is great too because you can modify your trip at any time. If you decided to extend your vacation and you want to keep the vehicle you rented, all you have to do is login to your profile and request to extend your vehicle. Of course the owner of the vehicle will have to accept your request and if it happens to be rented out during that period- you will have to keep your original reservation and find a new rental on Turo. It’s easy enough, trust me!
