“We didn’t want it to be too time intensive because we both have full time jobs, and also, we want it to be a good return on our investment… The profits are great for us — we can pay off a Jeep a year!”

  1. Please note: Aspiring entrepreneurs in California, Oregon, and Washington should be aware of existing peer-to-peer car sharing legislation that limits the amount of income hosts are supposed to earn from car sharing in certain scenarios. To learn more about this legislation so you can decide whether it’s right for you, review this article.

  2. * Figures represent the average Turo earnings among all US-based hosts with two or more active vehicles, with at least seven trip days per month, with a vehicle value between $25,000 and $34,999, from January 2018 to March 2020. Earnings have not been reduced to reflect costs such as vehicle maintenance, cleaning, insurance, and deductibles.

  3. ** Liability insurance is provided under a policy issued to Turo by Liberty Surplus Insurance Corporation, a member of the Liberty Mutual Group. Terms, conditions, and exclusions apply. The policy does not provide coverage for damage to a host’s vehicle. For questions or information about the third party liability insurance that is included in protection plans, consumers in Maryland and the licensed states listed here may contact Turo Insurance Agency at (415) 508-0283 / [email protected] For questions about how damage to a host’s vehicle is handled, visit http://support.turo.com/. Liability coverage is $750,000 for all host protection plans, except in some states and at some airports that require additional coverage. Hosts who provide their own commercial rental insurance do not receive Turo coverage for their vehicles or their customers. All hosts outside of the USA, UK, and Alberta, British Columbia, Nova Scotia, Ontario, and Quebec in Canada must have commercial rental insurance for their customers.

  4. *** Turo is not an insurance company, and contractual reimbursement for physical damage to your vehicle is not insurance. Turo will reimburse hosts for eligible physical damage costs in excess of the deductible, subject to terms and exclusions, for the lesser of the cost of repair up to the actual cash value of the vehicle or $125,000. When a trip is booked in the state of Washington, physical damage to the host’s vehicle is covered by insurance purchased by Turo, but Turo’s insurance does not change the contractual responsibilities of hosts or guests with respect to physical damage to a host’s vehicle. Hosts who provide their own commercial rental insurance do not receive a protection package, nor do their guests.
