Trip cost breakdown
The elements below contribute to the cost of a trip. Depending on your choices, your trip cost may not include them all. But you’ll better understand your trip cost totals if you become familiar with them.
We’ll show you an itemized list of Turo charges at checkout. You can review them before you submit your trip request. If there’s something you want to change, back arrow out of the screen.
If you book a trip with a Commercial Host, they may charge added costs. You and the host will agree on the final cost of the trip at or before the trip start. The host will charge those costs to you outside of Turo and won’t appear on your trip cost breakdown at checkout.
Trip cost elements
This is a vehicle’s listed rate multiplied by the trip length. Host set their own standard daily rate for all dates or set different prices for different days. Some hosts let Turo’s Automatic Pricing feature set their prices. Whatever the case, the Trip price you see will always reflect the vehicle’s daily rate for your chosen travel dates.
You can book some trips at a discounted, non-refundable price. If this option is available for your trip, we’ll let you know at the time of booking. If your host cancels, we’ll refund you in full. If you shorten a non-refundable trip, you won’t receive any difference in trip cost and fees.
This fee is a variable percentage of the Trip price. We show you the exact amount at checkout before you submit your request. Guests in the US pay a minimum of $15 per trip. This fee covers the costs of our 24/7 customer support, platform security and upgrades, and vendor fees.
This is the cost of the protection plan you choose. Plan availability vary by country. Each plan costs a different amount and offers different levels of coverage. If you book a car with a Commercial Host, they’ll offer their own commercial rental insurance. They’ll manage and price insurance and charge you for it outside of Turo. Hosts who charge for their own protection plan, must make that clear in their vehicle listing.
Young Driver Fee
We charge a Young driver fee to guests ages 18-25 who are booking a vehicle in the US. Outside of the US, we charge this fee to drivers who are ages 18-24. The fee for US drivers ages 18-20 is $50*/day or higher, depending on the vehicle. For US drivers ages 21-25 the fee is $30*/day or higher, depending on the vehicle. In Canada, the fee is $15*/day or higher, depending on your age and the vehicle you choose. In the UK, the fee is $25*/day or higher depending on your age and the vehicle you choose.
This is the amount a host charges to pickup and drop off a vehicle. That single listed fee covers delivery at the start and end of a trip.
This is the cost to buy optional convenience or physical items some hosts offer. These include conveniences such as prepaid refuel, unlimited mileage, or post-trip cleaning. Or may be items such as bicycles, sleeping bags, picnic baskets and the like. Hosts set their own price for Extras.
This is the cost to book a trip in a high-value vehicle or for some US guests to book any trip on Turo. We charge a security deposit to guests under age 30 who book a Deluxe Class car. And we charge a deposit to all guests who book a Super Deluxe Class car. We also charge a deposit to a small segment of US guests based on their auto-insurance score, trip details, and other factors. Neither Turo nor hosts can waive or remove these deposits.
- Some US states require Turo to collect a tax for trips that begin or end in those states. If your trip includes such a tax, we'll display the amount as a line item at checkout.
- The province of Quebec in Canada requires us to collect the Quebec Sales tax of 9.975% on services Turo provides.
- Some US hosts may live in states that require them to collect taxes. If a host is going to charge for tax, they must mention that cost in their vehicle listing. They must also confirm it with you once you’ve submitted your trip request.
