More thrills, more frills

Guests on Turo are continually awed by driving the jaw-dropping, heart-stopping, drool-worthy cars that hosts share on Turo. So now, the experience of finding and booking higher value cars is way easier, to get more qualified guests on more trips in more swanky cars.

New badges and filters

Booking a high value or dream car is one of the most undeniable thrills of Turo. To make these cars simple to search for, they’ll be getting new Deluxe and Super Deluxe badges on their car pages, and guests will be able to filter by these categories when they search. Vehicles in the US valued from $55K to $85K will receive a Deluxe Class badge, and those valued above $85K will receive a Super Deluxe Class badge.

Breezy Super Deluxe Class driving

The opportunity to drive a Ferrari, Rolls-Royce, or a modified Porsche is enticing to many guests. However, until now, the experience of booking these cars involved a manual review process that could take 1-2 days. Now the entire process has been automated, and guests can book these extraordinary rides via the app itself, without waiting on a manual review.

Keep in mind, guests still have to qualify to book Super Deluxe Class cars. They will need to pay a deposit of US$1,500 and also will be required to select one of the protection plans offered via Turo. If guests have personal insurance that provides comprehensive and collision damage, they can enter their insurance information to get $500 knocked off their deposit. Additionally, guests will still have to be 30 years old or older to book Super Deluxe Class cars.

Deluxe Class upgrades

While Deluxe Class cars aren’t quite as exclusive as Super Deluxe Class, they’re still striking head-turners, like an iconic Porsche Cayman or an exhilarating Jaguar F-Type. Today, guests have to be age 30 or older to book these cars. Going forward, we’ll be lowering that age restriction to allow responsible guests age 25 and over to book Deluxe Class cars, as long as they meet our additional requirements.

Approved drivers aged 25 and older, but under 30, will need to pay a US$1,500 deposit and will be required to select one of the protection plans offered via Turo. If guests have personal insurance that provides comprehensive and collision damage, they can enter their insurance information to get $500 knocked off their deposit. The experience for guests 30 and older will remain unchanged.

Make a splash

The Deluxe and Super Deluxe Class vehicles that hosts list on Turo are part of what makes our community so unique and fun. These changes will not only improve the experience for guests trying to book these cars, but will also help hosts give more guests amazing experiences in their awesome, swanky cars.
