How Does Turo Work?

Car owners offer their cars in over 250 cities and 300 airports across the country, sometimes with delivery included.

How Does Turo Work With Renting A Car?

Sign up to the service – You can sign up through FB, Google, or email. As you sign up your identity and eligibility to drive is verified.

Search for the perfect car – When you enter the travel dates and location and you are presented with a wide selection of unique locally owned cars

Book the Car – Book the car that you fancy and the owner should confirm or decline your request within eight hours. Alternatively, get instant bookings by clicking on listings that have the “Book Instantly” badge

Pick up the Car or Have it Delivered – Meet the car owner, show your license, inspect the vehicle and drive off into the sunset for a time of your life. Many car owners offer delivery and can bring the car to you.

Return the Car – After your trip, replace the gas used and meet the owner to give them back the car. Again, inspect the car, hand over the keys and thank them for their service.

How Does Turo Work for Making Money?

When you list your car on the platform, Turo dynamically sets your car’s rental price based on a variety of factors.

This includes your vehicle’s market value, time of the year (for example during the holidays demand might be high), location and other factors in order to maximize earnings for your listing. Alternatively, you can manually set the daily rental price for your car.

Let’s say the market value for your car is around $20,000 and you are willing to rent it out for 10 days a month.

According to the Turo calculator here, you could earn upwards of 4500 in a year!

Your earnings are paid via direct deposit within five days of the trip ending. You can earn anywhere from 65% – 85% of the trip price depending on the vehicle protection package you choose and 90% of the trip price if you have commercial rental insurance and waive the protection Turo provides.
