How much does a trip cost?
How much a trip costs depends on the choices you make. Choices such as the vehicle you select, the protection plan you purchase, whether you add Extras, and more. Each element is a separate charge and we’ll show you an itemized list of Turo charges on the checkout screen before you submit your trip request. If you want to add, remove, or change something on the list, back arrow out of the screen and make your updates. If you book a trip with a Commercial Host, they may charge added costs that you’ll pay outside of Turo. Any such charges won’t appear on the itemized list at checkout. Read a Commercial Host’s vehicle listing carefully to learn of any additional charges.
The following is a list of charges you may see on the checkout screen before you book your trip:
This is a vehicle’s listed rate multiplied by the trip length. Hosts can set a standard rate for all calendar days or set different prices for different days. The Trip price you see always reflect the vehicle’s daily rate for your chosen travel dates.
The trip fee is a percentage of the trip price. It’s calculated at checkout by Turo and varies dynamically based on the expected cost of each trip. Several factors unique to each trip can influence the trip fee calculation. These include the vehicle’s value (a higher-value vehicle may incur a higher trip fee), lead time of booking (trips booked further in advance can lower the associated trip fee), trip duration (shorter trips contribute to a higher trip fee, while longer trips can help reduce the trip fee), and more.
This is the cost of the protection plan you choose. Plan availability varies 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 US guests ages 18-25 and to UK guests ages 18-24. We don’t charge a Young Driver fee in Canada. If you book a trip with a Commercial Host, we won’t charge this fee, but your host might. If they do, they’ll include it in the vehicle listing.
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 refueling and unlimited mileage and items such as bicycles, tents, and the like. Hosts set their own price for Extras.
This is the cost to book a trip in a high-value vehicle, to travel from the UK to the EU, or for some US and UK guests to book any trip on Turo. We charge a security deposit to guests under age 30 who book a Deluxe Class car and to all guests who book a Super Deluxe Class car. We charge a deposit to guests who plan to travel from the UK to the EU. We also charge a deposit to a small segment of US and UK 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. The province of Quebec in Canada requires Turo to collect the Quebec Sales tax of 9.975% on services Turo provides. Turo is also required to collect a value added tax of 20% of services Turo provides for trips that originate in the UK.
- 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.
