Has anyone ever heard of Turo? (AirBnb but for cars)
After doing some research, this app/website Turo looks pretty interesting. Forbes included it among 14 "hottest on-demand startups" in 2015. Its pretty much the AirBnB version of car renting, where you rent directly for the owner/host using the website or an app.
Although there are obviously risks associated (someone crashes, dings, steals the car, etc.). From what I read, it looks like Turo insures each vehicle up to 1 million and has great customer service for when things go wrong.
I was thinking I could maybe buy or lease a car, and have rented it out offset costs (payment, maintenance, etc) and pocket the rest. I am not saying I would do it full time, but it seems like a great way to own a car for virtually free and little work.
What do you guys think?
