Quick Thoughts

In case you’re not familiar with Turo, it’s like Airbnb for cars. People list their cars on Turo and you can rent it from them. Their website and app allows you to filter by price, vehicle type, make, location, etc.

We had our first experience with Turo when we rented a Tesla for my 40th birthday. The car’s owner was lovely and we had no problems at all, so it was a great way to experience driving a Tesla without the large expense of actually buying one ourselves.

It’s not only good for driving exotic cars, but it has the potential for saving you a decent amount of money versus a regular rental car too. My wife and her friend flew out to California to celebrate their 40th birthdays together for a mini road trip along the west coast. They rented an Audi Convertible for 9 days and it only cost an average of $47 per day. That was lower than even the cheapest rental cars were going for at the time, let alone how much they would’ve had to pay for a convertible from Hertz, Avis, Budget, etc.

That $47 per day even included Turo’s Standard coverage for physical damage of the vehicle, so if they’d gone for the Minimum plan or declined that coverage altogether, it would’ve been even cheaper.

My Amex offer was $20 off from $200 booking. Not as good as shown here but great timing for myself.


I just got my first AMEX. If I don’t see this in my Offers tab of my app, does that mean it’s not available to me?


I assume this wouldn’t work for renting through Turo in france? (given the language about the US site)

Does anyone know for sure if the CSR primary rental coverage applies to Turo? If I use my AMEX I can get this $30 credit but would also need some insurance coverage. Might be better off going with CSR if it covers insurance.


this is great for short rental, does the card holder have to be the same as driver?
