Perkopolis Members: $35 Off Your First Turo (Car Rental) Adventure

Great deal for Perkopolis Members, $35 off your first use of Turo.

If you don't know about Turo, it's a website where owners put up their vehicles for rent. You sign-up (there's an app too), shop from a list of cars in your area and rent it out, either by a meet-up location or actually going to the owner's residence.
Tricky policy when it comes to renting (not covered by many credit card companies - check first) that favours the owner, just be sure to have yourself covered. I've used it quite a few times myself.
$35 should cover most of a rental.

Unique code in your Perkopolis Account

Check dates and times, rates change during off hours / off-peak. So do the vehicles, so check various dates and times.
I've used Turo to rent exotic cars cheaply (rented for my wedding!)

How does the insurance work with Turo? Does the daily fee cover it or its an extra unless you're already have car insurance on a vehicle? There's not.much info on their website

Unless something has changed, insurance is provided by Intact or Belair IIRC.

Has anyone use Turo vehicles to cross into the states for a trip? The price makes this a good alternative to the major car rental companies.

Pretty sure the answer is no, since its someone's personal vehicle. I would check the terms on the website before diving in.

Credit card may, your own insurance may, otherwise you have to purchase their insurance policy which is offered during the checkout process (and expensive but necessary). You are on the hook for a lot more damage than normal so just make sure you have something, somewhere.

I wonder if people notify their own insurer they’re a paid provider on Turo?
You may have coverage but this turns into a weird area where it's a rental from a person, not a company, offered by a company, so my insurance company just told me no, they don't.

Found a part that talks about Canadian hosts, there are several insurance companies that allow you owners to participate in car sharing, It won't affect your premium, but you need to let them know

Looks like you can drive the car to the states:
If you book a car in the United States or Canada, you may drive it across the US-Canadian border. You may not drive into Mexico.

This makes it a great alternative to most car rental companies now, especially for the mini-suv/suv rates.

I find that really bizarre that car sharing won't affect your premium?

Give it a couple years for insurance companies to catch up. If Turo blows up, just wait for car rental companies to cry fowl. Thanks OP, I have never heard of Turo but I am definitely intrigued.

Why would it affect your premiums? When you lend your car out the insurance is provided by Turo's insurance not your own provider, that's why Turo takes a pretty big cut.

I've been a Turo host for a year. Have a accord, 2 Lexuses and a Model 3 on the platform. I have insurance with The Personal and they allow use on Turo. However, the premiums are higher than if I weren't on Turo. The rep tells me it's because the rates are different for customers who use their cars for commercial purposes (even if it's covered by Turo insurance). All of my customers love using Turo. Rates are usually cheaper and having a choice of a particular car is also great. Hosts are also more customer centric than an employee being paid minimum wage.
