    Hi guys,

    We are in DC for a few days and would like to rent a tesla for a day to do a day trip to nearest national park.

    We are from Northern California and also a current tesla owner.

    I found one on Turo, unfortunately stupid Turo policy not letting me rent it because I'm under 30. :(

    So if anyone is kind enough to let us rent their tesla for a day, we would highly appreciate it.

    Sincerely,
    Eric

    Check out this car on Turo!

    Hi. I'm on Turo as well and would be happy to rent my vehicle to you. I think you have some options with Turo but not with major car rental brands

    If u own a Tesla I will waive my age policy to let u drive. The policy is set by the owner as far I understand. I have a no driver under 30 for my Tesla as well

    I was curious so I looked it up myself and you are correct. Vehicles worth over $55,000 cannot be rented by individuals under 30 years of age. Unfortunately I cannot waive this either. Apparently this is imposed by Liberty Mutual

    Last thing. You can rent other electric vehicles on Turo. I have a BMW I3 for instance that is also listed and you would qualify to drive. I'm sure that this isn't ultimately what you want to hear but you should be able to rent an electric car during your trip

    Thank you, unfortunately I decided to just get a car rental from national.
    Next time I'll learn to plan ahead of time, this was an unplanned trip. We are going to several national parks and need tesla range and supercharger. :) thanks again for the offer,
