How does renting a car from Turo work?

I'm interested in using this new rental company for my upcoming trip to Seattle but want to be prepared for the experience. What is the process like?

“Renting a car from Turo is a relatively straightforward process and will likely be familiar to you if you’ve ever used services like Lyft, Uber, or Airbnb.
First, you’ll have to make an account.
Then, you can browse a selection of cars online and find one that fits your trip dates and price point.
Once you find your car, you’ll request to book it and the owner can accept or decline within 24 hours. If it’s a book instantly car, you’ll skip this step.
At this time, you can also select from one of the levels of car insurance offered by the company. Turo equips all its drivers with basic liability insurance and roadside assistance so you can feel safe on the road.
Once your reservation is booked, you’ll meet the owner at the agreed-upon location. You can then drive wherever you want (some rentals have mileage limits) and you’ll return the car with a full tank when your trip is over.”
