Turo is an American peer-to-peer car sharing company that connects people in the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom and Germany. Thanks to the digital platform, individuals are able to rent a car at an affordable price or list their vehicle to make a profit.
Travelers need to be approved to find and book a car that is up to their standards and needs — from autos with bike racks, child seats, sunroofs and toll passes to ones with snow tires, ski racks, hybrids and convertibles.
Hosts need to describe their vehicle, respond to requests and update their calendars. Once picked up by a renter, Turo covers the automobile with its commercial insurance policy.
With benefits to both parties, Turo's peer-to-peer car sharing service has a community of more than 350,000 members in Canada alone, with many more across the globe that exceed the 5 million mark.
