Correct. If I take highest coverage option is there anything to be concerned about?
What possibly should you be worried about?

Read all the fine print.

Curious as well. Thinking about using them next month as they’re half price of traditional companies.

IME they kill you with the fees at checkout. YMMV

That's not my experience. Fees were exactly as expected.
Just make sure you know which insurance option you want to go with, and you coverage from your primary auto-policy (if you have that).
I would rent with them again, if the car was late year model, car-owner had many good reviews, and savings were substantial relative to conventional rental companies.

That has not been my experience after adding the Turo insurance fees, taxes and other fees and pick up/drop off airport(if you are looking for that) it rarely beats conventional rental prices but that's just me

your primary insurance covers Turo rentals?  because mine said they dont

Location? Were you under 25? What did you pay? What insurance option did you choose?

Montana, about $900 (vs. several thousand dollars for similar 8+ seater at traditional car rental), 11 days,  “minimum” coverage as a precaution from Turo in addition to my Geico policy. All drivers were >25.

Geico told you they cover Turo rentals?

Any way you message a host before starting a trip?

Same question, or any way like Airbnb to see if they’ll negotiate price?
