Launched in 2010, Turo is a car sharing marketplace where guests can book any car they want, wherever they want it, from a vibrant community of local hosts across the US, Canada, the UK, and Germany. Guests choose from a unique selection of nearby cars, while hosts earn extra money to offset the costs of car ownership.

Turo hosts can request DropCar’s vehicle pick-up and drop-off services via Turo’s host tools webpage. The rates range from $35 to $49 per hour and only require a 24 hour advance notice, allowing for Turo hosts to have more availability and flexibility in their Turo trips schedule.
