Description

Overnight trips on Saturday night require minimum 2-day bookings. For instance, if you book from 2 pm on Saturday to 2 pm on Sunday, nobody else can use the car until 5 pm on Sunday. Such a trip ends up taking up the entire weekend and only earning one day's rental fee, so I may cancel them last-minute to discourage such bookings. Either book at least 2 days, or bring the car back Saturday night. Turo's response to this flaw in the booking system is to simply tell hosts to put a 2-day minimum. That doesn't work because it doesn't allow for separate day trips on Saturday and Sunday, which are fine with me. I don't mind doing twice the checkout and sanitization work to make cars available for day trips to the beach or hiking. It's just not cool to keep the car overnight and block it from being used the entire next weekend day. Thanks for your cooperation!

Please read my policy on overnight weekend trips needing to be longer than 2 days. Weekend day trips are fine. You can book from morning to night on a Saturday or Sunday. Overnight trips on Saturday need to be longer than 24 hours, or I might cancel. Thanks!

Very solid trip, couldn’t be easier. We wanted to pick up at 6am and she was very accommodating. She was also there right when we returned. The car was perfect for our needs and she was super relaxed!

Very responsive and flexible, and an easy pickup a short walk from my apartment. I would definitely rent this car again!
