Need to rent a car for a month or longer? Consider Turo, a peer-to-peer car sharing marketplace that's been likened to an AirBnB for cars. With over 170,000 car listings on Turo, this is a well-established marketplace, not a flash-in-the-pan startup. If you're 21 or older and want to rent a car in the U.S., Canada or Germany, you can use Turo to find car owners willing to rent out their vehicles for as little as a day or to up to a year.
The upsides are impressive. Many people like Turo's non-corporate vibe, where the rental experience feels more like borrowing a car from a friend than renting from a big company. Contracts have a lot less fine print than you get with a traditional rental car company.
