Turo app lets you rent out your car | CBS News 8

Angelina Rich loves to drive her Jeep Wrangler and so do other people.

Her Jeep is one of 350,000 cars listed on the app Turo. The app allows users to list their cars or trucks for rent. Customers then log-in and find the ride that fits their taste and trip.

For Rich it was a game changer. “I wanted to start my own jewelry line and having Turo allowed me to do that. Having supplementary income allowed me to stay home and focus on my brand.”

Rich said Turo covers theft and all physical damage. To be safe, she said she carries her own insurance as well.

As the one renting out her car, she can set the price, but she allows Turo to instead set the price. “They do their own pricing based on a number of factors and for me that is just easier,” she said.
