What about tolls and express lanes?
Sometimes traffic is annoying and you want to take a toll road. Or maybe your mapping system put you on the fastest route and it happens to have a toll.
Please be advised that I am in the process of adding Toll Pass feature. If you do go through a lane on the highway, at airport, etc, I will send you details for reimbursement for any tolls incurred during trip.
Can you deliver and pickup vehicle?
Yes FREE drop off or pickup within 10 miles of my home or office (Union Station). Delivery or retrieval outside that zone is $20 each, and $35 each for airport [subject to availability].
Additional $10 if either is before 6am or after 9pm. Please pre-arranged 24 hours in advance.
Are there any features that take some training or time to get used to?
Great question! Yes. The vehicle has both
-HOLD (double depress brakes) which will allow for foot-off-brake ideal without need to put into Park.
-Auto STOP/START (it can be disabled temporarily for each use) may engage at stop lights and when in park, idling to save gas. Yay energy reduction and lower pollution.
What about Safety?
Safety First! Please abide by all Turo policies, State and local laws. If you ever feel like you are unable to drive, please pull over, put on the hazard flashers and call an Uber or Lyft or a friend. Then park the car in a safe location, lock it up, and drop a pin in Google maps for later. Don’t forget the key fob.
The vehicle is also equipped with anti-lock brakes and front driver and passenger airbags.
Do I need to return the vehicle washed and waxed?
No you don't! Just take your stuff, throw out the trash and go. For your convenience, I will wash & vacuum; anything out of the ordinary will incur additional $40 charge.
Please DO NOT drive through car wash or apply any cleaners/polishers to exterior or interior. Spills and dirt happen; Sweet P is meant to be driven but she has special care instructions.
What do I do in an emergency?
In case of any EMERGENCY dial 911 first. Then please call me immediately. 917-825-6164. Do not let anyone I do not authorize to open the hood or remove/install any equipment or accessories. I only work with Porsche dealers and certified service facilities. Any towing will require flatbed truck.
Do I need to return the gas tank full.
Yes. Please return clean with a full tank of 91 Octane/premium gas. The tank size is 26.4 gallons. Less than full tank reimbursement is $85. Car must be unlocked to access fuel door. Similarly, please take all your belongings and hand keys back to me unless we have arranged otherwise.
Is the car available for longer trips? What if I want to buy the car?
Yes. Repeat users will receive reduced rates for weekly and monthly ride rental.
But sorry, Sweet P is not for sale. But I would be happy to provide you with a dealer contact from where she was purchased.
Can I take the car across State and international borders?
If you can pay for the mileage you may drive in the Contiguous United States. Hawaii and Alaska are allowed only if you take me and my wife with you. Driving in Mexico or Canada is not allowed.
How do you coordinate exchanges?
Send me your flight details upon booking. If I can arrange a pickup meet at Denver airport I will meet you outside of baggage claim either in passenger pickup to review vehicle options, check your license and hand you the keys. After 4pm arrivals are usually good-to-go but before that is case by case. $35 each exchange at airport, cash please.
If I am not able to meet at airport I recommend RTD A line ($10.50pp) to Union Station where I offer FREE pickup/drop off exchange. Otherwise ride-share to my home or work location for the exchange.
What if I forget most of this information?
For your convenience I have a vehicle sheet in the glove box. Please read it.
