Is Turo better than a car rental agency?

I'm traveling from Phoenix to SFO airport and I need to rent a car. I was going to go through a traditional agency but then I heard about this new company, Turo. Is it better or cheaper than a car rental agency? What is the experience like?

“Thanks for your question!
Both Turo and a traditional car rental agency provide you with
  • various car options at a range of prices.
  • car insurance.
  • online booking options (for Turo online is the only way to book).
The price depends on the city and type of car you want to rent. Some aspects of the experience will be different, and some aspects will remain the same.
For example, if you use a traditional rental agency, you’ll pick up and drop off your car at the airport. Turo, on the other hand, connects you directly with a driver, who may meet you at the airport or some other agreed-upon location.
If you’re curious about the price point differences, you can always compare options to see which one will work better for you.”
