Your Turo dashboard just got a major makeover — for both car owners and travelers alike. Many of the changes are more meaningful for owners managing their trips, but travelers will undoubtedly notice a difference when launching the app today.

So what’s new?

Lots of things!

The dashboard is now a one-stop shop for all of the most relevant information for managing your current and upcoming trips on Turo. It was your rich feedback that inspired this renovation — you asked for more detailed and timely information to be accessible from a single view. It was such a good idea that we really dove deep into the dashboard’s design to craft the most efficient and effective tool for you to manage your Turo rentals.

For starters, you’ll notice your dashboard is now divided into two feeds: your “Activity” feed and your “Upcoming” feed.

YOUR ACTIVITY FEED

Your activity feed shows all of your pending requests and recent notifications. Pending requests will always appear at the top of your activity feed, including:

  • New trip requests (owners only)
  • Change requests to existing trips (for owners only)
  • Reimbursement requests (for travelers only)

Additionally, each pending request shows how much time is left before it expires and, for trip requests, how much you’ll earn if you accept it. The new organization is meant to help you keep tabs on requests that require your immediate attention.

The activity feed also shows all of your recent notifications, with the most recent ones on top, so you never miss any important messages or alerts.

To navigate to the appropriate trip from your feed, simply click or tap on any item and you’ll go right to where you need go.

YOUR UPCOMING FEED

Your “Upcoming” feed shows which trips are happening each day, with the most current events at the top of your feed. The “Upcoming” feed will outline each upcoming trip in more detail, including:

  • Which leg of the journey (e.g. pick-up, drop off) is happening when
  • Where it’s happening
  • Which car is being used
  • Which trips are in progress

Having this information in a glanceable snapshot will help you stay on top of your current and upcoming trips.

OTHER IMPROVEMENTS

You can also now filter both feeds by vehicle, so if you have multiple vehicles, you can see what’s coming up for which car in a cleaner and more focused interface.

And you can always access past trips from your “Trip history” page to view a full archive of your past trips and transactions.
