App Reviews

  • Cancelled without telling me!

    By cancelled without notice.
    They booked a trip and paid for it. I took an Uber to the pick up address on the day that I was supposed to at the exact time I’m supposed to. I show up and the lady tells me that my reservation was canceled last night. I look on my email and on the app and it says that my trip is starting. She tells me it’s between me and Turo. Apparently Turo decided to cancel my reservation without telling me so they could review my account without sending me an email or notification. Now I’m sitting in front of this lady‘s house like a homeless person beyond embarrassed waiting for an Uber to pick me up. Completely ruined my vacation. Had they let me know in advance I could’ve made other plans. I took off work for this! Turo then emailed me several times telling me that I needed to send them pictures of myself in front of my drivers license and pictures of the card that I used to purchase. I did these things even though I used Apple Pay which was promoted by this app, they continue to ask me for more detailed photos of my card even though the photo that I sent them was in HDR. I told them point-blank it doesn’t make any sense for you to need that many photographs of my card when I used Apple Pay and I already went through this entire process with Apple Pay. The entire scenario was very weird and very sketchy. I’m going with enterprise next time. It’s cheaper and they’re nice to me and I have very little chance of credit card theft.
  • Turo policy is bull!!!!

    By BriHead
    This app and rental agency is very convenient but just beware of their f’d up policy. It’s really a rip off. Before you guys make a policy stating if you cancel on the same day of the reservation you can not get a full refund please reconsider bookings on the day of. What is the real problem of canceling on the day of?? I’m sure it’s because the person had the opportunity to rent it out to someone else but they kept it reserve for your rental contract. However if it’s a booking on the day of the cancellation and the person book by mistake they should not get their money stolen from Turo or the owner! and if something come up and they wanted to cancel it should be allowed because first off the booking would of never took place if it wasn’t for the inquiry and I’m sure after the cancellation the person didn’t miss any other opportunities because it was within hours. I made a mistake and book a car that was a hour away from my home address. I canceled and rebook for a car that was closer. I was told I can only get $18 back due to me canceling on the day of I suppose to pick up the car. I lost $140 just by a mistake of a button and couldn’t get my money returned. (That’s ignorant as ever!) I rebook another car and gave y’all my money again thinking I was going to be able to get my refund from the first booking. I didn’t know How stupid this app was! I will never use this again. Because y’all are some thieves!
  • Beware! I was charged $140 in “toll fees”

    By Izzy_1_2
    I have rented several cars from Turo, at first I loved the app! It was so convenient to scroll through and pick out a car for my vacations. Although I had 3 good experiences, the bad ones were REALLY BAD. A car owner was over 3 hours late to our agreed upon pick up time, resulting in me starting my vacation sitting in a sushi restaurant near LAX for those 3 hours. My first vacation day was suppose to be a relaxing drive down hwy 101 to San Diego. Instead, it was a stressful day of sitting and waiting as he text “almost there” for 3 hours, then getting such a late start the 2 hour drive was nearly 5 hours in the dark during evening traffic. The worst part of the experience was I was unaware I passed through a toll, the owner decided not to inform me of the toll notice he received until it had racked up $140 in late fees. The toll agency agreed to drop the fees and I would pay a reasonable $33 if the owner would cancel his $140 payment and let me pay the reduced fee. Turo support and the car owner were completely uncooperative and refused to do so. $140 to reimburse the car owner was just pulled from my account after I went back and forth between the toll agency and Turo support for over 2 hours. Beyond frustrating! Save your sanity and just use a reliable rental car agency!
  • Unreliable

    By peter1892
    My overall experience was horrible! If you’re reading this... just rent through enterprise. I tried renting a vehicle twice which ended in up-charges every single time! The first owner ended up cancelling the transaction because I had to have at least “five rated trips to rent” even though that wasn’t mentioned on his guidelines. To my mistake, I gave Turo another chance and tried booking another car with someone in their support team but she stopped helping halfway through the process and was left to book another car with another unreliable car owner. With that said, the second booking was canceled about an hour before I was meant to pick up the car because the car was “in the shop” and called Turo to cancel the transaction so I could avoid the charges for cancelling it myself and trying to book another vehicle. I was told that I was going to be helped with rebooking another car within an hour but I ended up calling back in after two hours. After being on the phone for another hour, I ended up renting another vehicle with another up charge. All in all, I ended up paying double what I wanted because I was left with no other choice because the second booking was cancelled super last minute and no nearby enterprise’s were open.
  • Not worth the headache!

    By hdjdbxbx
    I have never written a review for an app. But this terrible company deserves everything negative said about them. Everything was great for the most part until some small damage happens to the car you rented. Two small chips in the windshield from rocks being kicked up from other cars. They immediately charge your account 500$ after you file the claim even if the damage will cost no where near that amount. They charge your card and tell you about it later. And then after the claim has been paid and closed they’ll randomly decide to open it back up and change you for “additional damages” without any explanation of what those are! Again, charged my card before they emailed me. They also gave an option to not pay the amount in full right away but how am I supposed to do that if my card was charged before I was told about the charge!? Also if you try calling no one in their office can help you because the claims department doesn’t even have a phone number so you’re stuck emailing back and forth with who even know if it’s a real person or an automatic response from a computer. RIDICULOUS. I’m quite positive I will never use this app ever again. It’s a great idea but the organization on their side is terrible.
  • Pretty okay but....

    By Jayt718
    I’ve used Turo around eight times since last year. Haven’t had too much of a bad experience.. until lately. All of these updates but there is still no update to where you can ask an owner questions about the car you are interested in renting (or other questions you may have) without having to check out and having your card charged for the car in questions (IF the owner doesn’t have to approve the trip, this can go badly). This needs to be addressed especially a feature for owners if they will be out of town and/or unavailable although the car is listed as available for the dates you need a car. I’ve had an instance where I rented a car but the owner told me that she would be out of country on those dates.. therefore, I had to wait for my money to return to my account and it screwed my account royally with the second car I’ve rented. I like you guys and what you offer but.....Take care of the little feature Turo! They matter! P.S. Find a way to get your services in NY. Renting all the way in NJ can be a hassle.
  • Horrid Service. Illegal Actions

    By Ed Aggie
    I only used Turo once and never will I ever again. Unfortunately while renting out a truck there was a light scratch on the bed. I have no idea how this even happened. But throughout the process I was patient and cooperative, but Turo pulled off some very questionable actions. For starters they made a claim on my personal insurance without my consent. And when tried to get in contact with someone I couldn’t because they don’t have a call center. Then when the “VIP claims associate” Jordan finally decided to give me call after I had scheduled one with him and blew me off. He told me that an “independent” adjuster had seen the damage and recommended a full body work repair of beyond 5,000 dollars, and this was based of a picture that could have easily photoshopped. No adjuster went in person to see the actual “damage” they wouldn’t even allow my own insurance to go. It wasn’t until he had decided to contact me that I knew what was going on. And until then I had no idea how bad the damage was, if there was an adjuster. Later on it turns out that I only needed to pay 687. I feel that they said the repair cost was as high as it was just to get money from insurance or myself. THESE PEOPLE ARE SNAKES AND YOU SHOULD NOT USE THEIR SERVICE!!!!
  • Do not be fooled

    By racheleb136
    Though this app seems convenient and i have a few great trips... when it comes to the bad as well as costumer service... they are AWFUL. I had a horrible experience where i was given an electric (fully) for a long distance trip with no warnings... luckily i found out on my own. But as i arrived to the car it was not charged! I had 150miles to drive! Ran around the city until i finally found a charge and left an hour and a half after i planned. The mileage went down double than what i was told it was and i ended up being stranded. I had no other choice but to leave the car and have a friend pick me up until my trip was over. After returning the car i reached out to customer service who took 5 days to even reply! They totally denied my request as i did not have “before” photos which was an err with their app as i was forced to take those pictures and already had them in my bank of photos. They are not to be trusted and you’re better off renting through a rental company... the discounts are not worth it!! I’d give it a zero if i could. I get mistakes but working in the service industry the customer service is everything and this company is not there. Do not rent from them!

    Turo support are not helpful in any way. Had a friend (that I recommended the app to after having an initial (somewhat) positive experience. Let’s start there. I paid top dollar to rent an Aston Martin. The guy was late and the car was dirty and unwashed. I had some strange charges show up on my credit card which I disputed and had dropped but didn’t tie in to the Turo rental. Other than the strong feeling of “I knew it was too good to be true” I am the type of person that would rather support local users opposed to a company like enterprise which is what drew me to Turo so as I said, I told a friend to try it and decided I would give it another shot. Here is where things get crazy. Turo took $2000 out of my account without informing me. Additionally another $2,800 in unauthorized charges were made on my card again. When I raised some questions to support they cancelled my account (after having it for almost 2 years) and stopped communicating. Citing that they need to “protect internal practices”. Luckily I have a good bank and the money has since been returned. My friend reported a similar experience and he immediately removed the app and hasn’t had any problems since. YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED*
  • Turo. The most complicated way to rent a car.

    By Zbay88
    I’ve used Turo on two occasions and I will not be using the service again. While I like the fact that you can choose the specific car, the experience becomes stressful because of the inconsistency of each listing. The first time I rented a car (Tesla), I picked it up at the owners house. The agreement was to hand back the keys in person but I had to wait an hour for the owner to show up. On my second rental I was told last minute that I had to pay to wash and vacuum the car or get charged a $40 cleaning fee. I also had to pay to park the car in a lot for the owner to retrieve it later. They had no key box or means of securing the key so they asked me to leave It unlocked with the key under the floormat. If the car was stolen or vandalized I worry that I would be held responsible. Overall Turo needs to have some consistent protocols in place to avoid the confusion of multiple processes for picking up and returning the car. I use the service Getaround frequently for work and it’s simple app based key is much more straightforward and user friendly. While it isn’t available in all cities it provides for a much smoother experience.
