There’s a nationwide car rental shortage, in case you haven’t noticed. If you can’t find a car, check with Turo.com, the car rental app that connects you with private owners.
I first heard of Turo.com a couple of years ago. But given today’s acute car rental shortage, it’s worth another look, whether you’re looking for a car in Anchorage, Honolulu, Seattle or Salt Lake City.
Check Turo.com terms and conditions when you’re looking at the cars. Here’s a screenshot for Anchorage:
Not all cars are unlimited mileage. No one-way rentals are permitted. You can cancel your reservation without a fee up to 24 hours prior to your pick-up time. Some rentals are available for airport pickup. Just check out the website, enter your dates and scroll through the options.
Here in Alaska, I found Turo.com was available in Anchorage, Fairbanks, Juneau, Homer and Kodiak. There are Turo.com options at almost every major airport in the Lower 48.
There’s a link on the website if you want to sign up as a host and rent your car to visitors.
