Wink Looking to rent a vehicle for 6 days 1/12 - 1/17

I posted a classified, but I'm not sure that's the best place to post this:

I'm looking to rent a vehicle (car share) for about a week for a business trip. I've look on the Turo app, but there isn't much available around the villages. There wouldn't be more than 900 miles put on the vehicle during this time. I'm intrested in a full size car/sedan. Please contact me if you are interested in renting out your vehicle for a week!

Thank you in advance!

Chris

Why don’t you call Enterprise?

People who rent their car out probably won’t have their insurance cover their car in the event of an accident. Considered business use and most people have personal car insurance.

I would seriously stay away from renting my car to anyone due to the above mentioned liability, "IT JUST AINT' WORTH THE RISK" Also as mentioned above Enterprise is right here in TV. If you're really in a bind you can rent a small van from U-haul for $19.95/day.

I'm confused. You can rent a car from Enterprise for that time period for $200. I really don't understand the OP's reason for wanting to rent from an individual, especially for a business trip. There is no way that I would allow a stranger to put 900 miles on my car for $200.

I agree with others...why not Hertz or Enterprise?

Cost is reasonable without potential unknown risks.

The IRS, an organization not known for its generosity, for 2020, allows 57.5 cents / mile for business use.
That works out to just over $500 for 900 miles.
If a car rental company offers you $200 + plus gas, that is a great deal.

I've rented from Enterprise at LSL, they come and pick you up and when you return the vehicle they take you home. It's next to Bravo Pizza. Great Prices - Clean Cars!!

Possibly the person doesn't have a drivers license???
I'm sure a rental company will want to see your drivers license before they'll rent to you.

Good point. Maybe I should reconsider and let him drive my car without a drivers license.
