The new tool is easy to use. Simply plug in your vehicle’s year, make and model as well as your general location and Turo will tell you what your potential monthly earnings might be. The figure is based on the average daily price and the average days booked per month. It also factors in a 75 percent take rate from the Turo Standard protection package (Turo’s basic coverage policy). The numbers are estimates, but it should give you a rough idea of how much you could make.
The tool does have its limits. If you’re not located in one of roughly 25 major markets, you can only get the average for the U.S. or Canada as a whole. It also doesn’t calculate vehicles older than 2006 model year. Still, it’s pretty neat to play around with and see if Turo might be worth using.
It’s also neat to see just what vehicles earn the most money on Turo. The company broke things down into five categories: daily drivers, sport, luxury, trucks and SUVs, and vans. Based on the supplied data, the Porsche Boxster brings in more money than any other vehicle, with owners earning $1,365 per month on average. Other notable earners include the Jeep Wrangler ($851 per month), Mercedes-Benz CLA-Class ($744 per month) and the Ford Fiesta ($497 per month). That’s a good price when factoring in the average monthly payments on one of those vehicles.
