TURO × RICHARD SHERMAN × MALCOLM SMITH × E-40

After playing together in Seattle, NFL superstars Richard Sherman and Malcom Smith are reuniting in the Bay for the 2018 season. To welcome them to the area, famed rapper E-40 arrives in a car from Turo, a peer-to-peer car sharing app, with headquarters based in SF, and officially pardons the players from the 2013 championship against San Francisco with his magical hands.

“I’m excited to come back to the Bay Area and partner with Turo! Being able to book the exact car I want to drive has made my move a lot easier and more comfortable. Plus it was pretty sweet to meet E-40 and get an official welcome to the Bay from the Counselor himself.”

Hop onto a fresh new set of wheels today with Turo! Sign up for the innovative car-sharing app Turo with Facebook, Google, or your email.

Turo is available for adults aged 21+ in 56 countries, 5500 cities, and with over 6 million users.

Getting into a new vehicle has never been more simple! Just meet the car owner to pick up the car. Many owners offer delivery, so they may bring it right to you. Take a look at the car, show them your license, grab the keys, and you’re all set for the fun. The owner will confirm or decline your trip within eight hours, but typically it’s much sooner. You can even pick up a car remotely with TuroGo, which allows owners to unlock cars from their phone, if the car’s system supports it. Book cars instantly on listings with the “Book Instantly” badge. You can even message owners directly and exchange numbers for easy drops or arrange meeting times at the airport.

No insurance? No Problem! Turo offers 3 different liability insurance packages from liberty mutual in the US and other major carriers across Canada and Germany. Those who prefer to use their own insurance can decline this option. Turo even allows customers to add a secondary driver onto trips, in case you have a friend coming along for the ride.

For those looking to become a little more adventurous, add-ons are available, like car-seats, mountain bikes, ski racks and more. This great alternative to conventional rental car companies offers exclusive cars that you can’t find anywhere else, like The Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat, with 6.2-liter V-8 good for 707hp. Rates for nice luxury cars are a bargain such as the 2017 Infiniti Q50 for only $52 per day! Turo is also great for people who already own a set of wheels. It’s a great way to earn extra cash for college or simply subsidize your car payment when you need to.

Listing your car on Turo is as simple as getting one, just create a free listing within a few clicks. Describe your car, upload some clean photos, and you’re ready to go. Be sure to keep your calendar up to date, so travelers know when your car is available. Turo holds about 10 to 12 orientation and communication events per year. The most recent one was in NYC, where they brought together active hosts and offered app feedback to the engineers and marketing representatives of Turo. You can learn more about how Turo works here.

Turo granted 360 Magazine the special opportunity to try the service out for themselves with a 2017 Porsche Macan GTS SUV. The luxury car is available on the app for a great price!
