Turo is the sharing economy’s answer to big car rental agencies.
Through Turo, you can rent everything from a run-of-the-mill Ford Mustang or Dodge Minivan to the latest Tesla, or choose from a whole bevy of classics like a 1968 Mercedes coupe or a 1974 MG Roadster, or yes, even a fully kitted-out 1980s Volkswagen Westfalia.
I’ve tried the service twice: once car-camping in the Pacific Northwest for a week, and getting down to the Florida Keys from Miami International Airport. Here’s why I’m smitten.
Whether you’re looking to get out of town in style, tear out into the wilds, or just avoid the line at Hertz after a grueling flight, Turo, the sharing economy’s answer to car rentals, may be the solution to all of your car-renting woes, save for the expenses (sorry, those are likely here to stay). What’s more? You can also now earn a little (quasi-)passive income renting your own wheels out, too.
I’ve tried Turo in two widely different capacities. My first trip was a weeklong escapade through the Pacific Northwest of the US, camping along the coast and amid the redwoods while chasing surf and Chinook salmon. My second was simply a means of getting from Miami International Airport down to a beach house rental in the Florida Keys.
Both experiences were delightful departures from absolutely every vehicle rental experience I’ve ever had, and why you ought to try Turo the next time you’re in need of wheels for hire.
