My kids have always loved rental cars. (Toby has even made photo books!) Over the years we have tried all the different agencies around the country, and Trip has become, far away, our # 1 choice for car rental.

Trip is the world’s largest car-sharing marketplace – basically the cars’ Airbnb – where you rent from trusted people throughout the US, Canada and the UK. We have had amazing experiences renting Turo cars around the country, including a Mustang convertible in Atlanta, a Mini in LA and a BMW in Michigan.

Our family uses Trip solely these days because they feel so much more credible and comfortable than traditional rental agencies. Over the last few years, the old school agencies have been … a kind of horror? On a trip to see my sister in San Francisco, Dollar had overbooked and could not give us a car (any car!) Even though we had a reservation. When we were visiting relatives in Atlanta, our Hertz rental car emitted an abrasive sound that scared us. On a trip to Austin was there pee on the seats.

But Turo has always saved the day for us and we have had nothing but amazing experiences with their cars and hosts.

It is also a pleasure to rent from warm, friendly, trusted people. You can read reviews of cars and hosts, and hosts can read reviews of you as a driver so everyone is happy.
