Extras are additional items you can offer to your guest to make their adventure that much more exciting and easy! You can offer all kinds of Extras, from guest conveniences (like unlimited mileage or post-trip cleaning) to outdoors equipment (like everything your guest might need to go camping or on a ski trip). You are not required to add Extras to your listing, but we think it’s a great way to earn a little more and provide an amazing experience to your guests.
Turo has created a database of Extras that hosts can add to their listing. You can find it by searching Extra types on the Extras tab of your car’s listing page. There are a lot of Extras in our database already, but we’re happy to take suggestions for later if the Extra you want is not available. You’ll be prompted to suggest an Extra if the one you’ve searched for is not already in the database.
The price for each Extra is up to you! Hosts can choose to charge a single flat rate for an entire trip or price their Extras per day. The available price range for Extras is between $1 and $999. We recommend doing some research to determine what your Extra’s market value is before you set a price.
For Extras that represent a convenience service (such as prepaid refueling), detailed descriptions are strongly recommended, and hosts are responsible for providing the full service as described in their listing. In general, we also recommend that some types of Extras are better priced per-day (such as unlimited mileage) while others are better priced per-trip (such as post-trip cleaning), to be more appealing to your guest.
Extras are not covered by any Turo protection plans, which means you’ll keep 90% of what you make from any Extras purchased by your guests. It also means Turo typically can’t provide assistance with lost or damaged Extras. Hosts should set clear expectations with guests about how to use and take care of any purchased Extras during a trip.
