Providing discounts for longer duration trips helps encourage guests to book your car for more days and may ultimately increase your earnings.
You can set weekly and monthly discounts from the “Pricing" section of your car listing by entering the percentage discounts that you would like to offer. A weekly percentage discount will apply to all trips that are seven days to one calendar month long; a monthly percentage discount will apply to all trips that are one calendar month or longer. The discount works by taking all the prices of each day in a week (or calendar month) and adding them together, factoring in any changes you've made with daily prices, and applying the percentage discount to the total.
The percentage discount will apply to the cost of every day in the trip, including days for which you have manually set the price. The discount system won't permit you to list your car for less than $10/day*.
Hosts who are taking advantage of Turo’s Automatic Pricing feature to set the daily rate for their vehicle can still manually set and adjust discount pricing if they choose to; otherwise, we’ll automatically adjust the discount percentages to maximize earnings.
When guests book their trips, they are always charged the lowest total, according to the vehicle's listed rates and discounts. For example, if a guest books a trip for six days, they will receive the daily price of that vehicle six times; if they extend to a seventh day, the weekly percentage discount will apply to the cost of the total trip. If a seven-day trip would be less expensive than a six-day trip based on how your daily prices and discount work, though, the guest will get the less expensive option. This applies to long-term trips as well, depending on the length. Let's say a guest wants to add another week onto their two-week trip: they will be charged for the cost of an additional week. However, if a guest extends a one-week trip for a week four times, such that they end up having the car for over a month, the overall daily cost of the trip will cap out at the monthly rate.
However, in the event that your percentage discount would make a trip less expensive when combined with an extension, we will never reduce the original amount they paid for the trip; the guest would simply be charged an extension fee and no other additional cost.
We hope you find our discount process to be helpful for listing your car and easy to use.
