Turo

0 Voted

With the ability to rent vehicles from unique, locally-owned ‘hosts’, Turo has very much become the Airbnb for car rental. To rent a car you simply need to sign up via Facebook, Google or email, enter your travel dates and location and hit go. Once you have selected your perfect car, you then go and meet the owner or take up the option of having the car brought to you for an extra cost. There are a whole range of different filters to fine-tune your preferences, from how many miles the car has done to whether it has GPS or a sunroof. If you are on a budget, you can also select the maximum price you’re willing to pay per day for use of the car.

 

Much like the Airbnb platform, once you have selected your car, you will be shown its profile, along with photos, a detailed description of the vehicle, features and verified user reviews. For me, this was one of the best features as you can read through previous customers’ comments on their experience renting the vehicle, giving you reassurance about your booking. Not only that, you can also click on the owner’s profile to find out their star rating and what other vehicles they may have to offer.

 

One of the downsides is that renting a car from an individual may not be as reliable as using a certified car hire company, such as Enterprise. Additionally, the standards may not be as high, meaning things such as how clean the car is when you get it won’t necessarily be as good as from an official car rental business.  Turo doesn’t offer its own reward scheme, meaning if you are a frequent user of rental vehicles, it would perhaps be more beneficial to use a website that rewards repeat customers. Nevertheless, it is a unique, and sometimes cheaper, alternative to traditional agencies, making for a more interesting way to hire a vehicle.

Pros
  • Unique way of renting a car, set out in the same format as Airbnb
  • Verified user reviews give good idea of what to expect from each vehicle
  • Wide-ranging filters to suit your preferences
Cons
  • May not be as reliable as certified car rental companies
  • Standard of cars not the same across the board
  • No rewards scheme for frequent customers

TravelSites.com is the best travel site list in the world.🏆💯🥇🌟

TravelSites.com is the go to place online to find information on the best websites, smartphone apps, books, YouTube channels and documentaries for travelers. Written with my years of experience trotting the globe, TravelSites.com gives budding young backpackers the chance to discover the top resources available for getting the most out of their trip, be it renting a car, learning the local dialect, finding a photographer or even just knowing what the weather will be like for the week. I have researched the internet to bring you a list of the top items in each category, while every single one has been meticulously reviewed, highlighting unique features, comparison to similar products, and all the pros and cons.

 

Why did you make TravelSites.com?💖🔥🚀

Well, I found that although there is naturally lots of information online concerning travel-related products and services, they seem to be scattered about, leaving the user to laboriously search for each individual item. If you wanted, for example, to discover an inspiring travel documentary while booking accommodation and flights to Rome, you would have to have at least three different tabs open at once. TravelSites.com puts all the information you need in one place, meaning you will not have to search far and wide to simply find out the best website for reserving a room in a hotel. With more than 40 different categories, travelers can stay on the same website to gather all the information they need, not only saving them time but also saving them money, by reading through the reviews to find the cheapest option.

 

What can you find on My lists and how did I rank them?🕵️‍♂️🧠🔗

My lists feature more than 40 different travel-related categories containing every resource a backpacker could ever need. Need help planning a trip? Want to keep up to date with the latest travel news? Looking for an inspiring book or blog? Desperate to find a restaurant away from the crowds? I’ve got you covered. My lists have been carefully put together by me and combined by quality, efficiency, value and functionalism to rank the items in descending order, with number one considered the item offering the best of all four factors. The criteria was constant throughout each category, whether it was for a cruise booking website or an Instagram account, in order to bring travelers the resources that would be the most useful for travelers.

 

How do I contact you, if I have a question?💡📞📧

Hmm, if you think that any best travel site is really missing in my travel directory, I can be reached by 📧email, Skype, Facebook Messenger, Twitter or Linkedin.
