I would not hire from Populus again. The main reason I give the experience a low star rating is because Populus claimed we had damaged the car, but in fact he had just found a very very minor pre-existing surface scratch (probably made by someone brushing past the car in a carpark) and tried to make out that it was caused by us. The scratch was so minor it could have been removed with-in 30 seconds by car polish. His pre trip photos did not show the scratch but neither did his post trip photos taken from the same position. It was not until he provided a photo that was zoomed right up on the area that an extremely faint scratch could be seen. Once I presented my case Turo quickly agreed with me that the "damage" was not claimable by Populus. It did waste a lot of my time however. There were no problems with the car itself apart from the fact that even though it is All Wheel Drive you still need chains to use it in snow because it has quite worn highway tires on it and not the mud and snow tires required by the authorities for travel in snowy conditions. So you need to budget for that at about $70 from Walmart and be knowledgeable on and prepared to install them when required (take gloves and a mat to lie on!). If you want a hassle free experience do not hire from Populus or if you do take lots of photos inside and out. The fact that he uses a nickname to hide behind and not his real name should be a warning to all.
