    Has anyone here used Turo to rent a car for a day or so. Will they deliver to your hotel and pick up when done or do you have to go get it and bring it back to same place?

    I have used it for a day to go to Red Rock. I ubered to his house to get and drop off the car, but there is an option to have them pick up. When searching for a car make sure to look at all the filters for free pick up and drop off ( I missed this step)
    I will be using Turo for 2 weeks in Hawaii though, much better than renting a car form the big companies!

    I've had two terrible experiences with Turo and will never use them again. They will always side with the car owner in the event of a dispute. Proceed at your own risk.

    I had a fantastic experience. Make sure to look at all the filters like @h0und10 mentioned. I found a convertible mustang that was willing to drop off and pick up at a different location. We only paid 100 bucks for 2 days. Try to get an All-Star host. They have the most experience and are easiest to deal with. Make sure to find some sign up bonus and you can also find deals for All-Star hosts.

    Just rented a loaded Tesla Model X to go skiing in Mt Charleston. Just like AirBNB I will only use the highest rated hosts.

    Overall I enjoyed it and will use it again.

    Used turo the lady weekend in October to rent two slingshots to go to Valley of fire. Took an uber to the persons home for about 8 dollars. The experience was phenomenal and they cost us 79.00 for 24 hours each vs 299.00 for half a day from an agency. Would definitely recommend turo, but as others have said only book an all-star host.

    Have fun!!

    We used in LV to rent slingshot for the day was 1/3 cost of dealer and you keep for 24 hours or return earlier if you want. Remember to get a discount code for 25-50 bucks off. Use top rated people only

    I have used Turo more than 10 times and always had a good experience, just don't think you are going to get a great car for $30, you get what you pay for. I usually rent something a bit more exotic and ALWAYS make sure there are reviews on the person you are renting for , ALWAYS. Never have them deliver to an airport as it's way too expensive, just Uber to the location and Uber back to the airport. Make sure you take pictures on any damages. Turo is great for something you usually would not get at a car rental. Last car we rented was a Jaguar F-Type for 4 days in Austin TX, lots of fun.

    If you do some searching and start a rental, you will see the answer is - yes, no and maybe.

    Some "hosts" will meet you at the airport, or even hotel. Some will do it for a fee. Some will require you come get the car. It all depends, and can quickly change the price with added drop off or pick up fees - if charged.

    I use Turo whenever I'm in Vegas. If anyone is looking for something sporty/fun, check host Alfonso Ortiz. He's got everything from a current gen MX-5, a couple of Porsches, a BMW M2 a Giulia Quadrifolio, and a 4Runner. Some are manual transmissions too, for those who prefer to row their own gears. Super cool guy, and he will pick up and drop off anywhere for no charge, and is very flexible.
