Capital One launched a brand new partnership with Turo, allowing you to earn up to 10x Venture Miles per dollar on rentals booked through the car-sharing platform for the next year.

These higher returns kick in today, Tuesday, May 17. Cardholders with the new Capital One Venture X Rewards Credit Card will earn 10x miles per dollar spent on Turo bookings through the Turo app or at Turo.com. If you have the Capital One Venture Rewards Credit Card, you'll earn 5x miles per dollar spent on Turo bookings.

There's no registration required: Just use your Venture X or Venture Card for your Turo reservation and you'll earn Venture miles at a higher rate. This new partnership is currently set to last a year, ending May 16, 2023.

Turo is one of our favorite ways to rent a car with unique vehicles, a seamless smartphone app that makes pickup and dropoff a breeze, and lower prices than you'll find from most big rental car companies. While many top-tier travel credit cards offer perks for the big box chains, this is the first time we've seen such a benefit for using Turo. And it harkens back to the old 10x miles you'd earn using a Capital One card to book through hotels.com – a partnership that ended a few years ago.

Read on for everything you need to know about Capital One's new partnership with Turo.

 

What is Turo?

If you're not familiar with Turo, think Airbnb … but for your car rental.

Car owners post their vehicles on the Turo platform which can then be rented by users in need of a car. Skip the long lines and high fees at the car rental kiosks at the airport. The Turo website and smartphone app allow you to select your car type, dates, features, and amenities.

Best of all, you handle almost everything through the Turo app or website: Messaging with the owner, finalizing pickup and dropoff locations, and more. In our experience, this often means your entire rental is contactless. You can get your wheels and drop them back off at the airport without even meeting the owner face-to-face. Turo even allows you to filter for rentals that offer the ability to unlock your rental from the app itself.

Book a cheap car for a road trip, or rent a Tesla for the night for a luxurious ride on your weekend getaway. The quantity – and quality – of the cars can vary widely based on where you’re heading. But from Teslas to Ferraris to Jeep Wranglers and Polaris Slingshots, you’ll often find vehicles available that you simply can’t find on a major car rental company lot.

Many rentals will drop off the car for you at the airport where you’ve arrived, while other owners require a pickup within a set radius.

Need the car at the airport? Look for the plane icon and filter your results. Some owners will tack on a delivery fee, which can be hefty. You can filter the results to eliminate any rentals with large delivery fees.

Turo car rentals are available across the U.S. and Canada, along with a growing number in major European cities. And no matter where you are, Turo offers 24/7 roadside assistance – though keep in mind either you or the owner may have to pay for repairs, depending on how the car was damaged.

What About Insurance on Your Turo Car Rental?

No matter how you’re renting a car, you should always have some insurance or coverage. And Turo is no different.

Unfortunately, primary rental insurance policies that come through credit cards like the Capital One Venture X Rewards Credit Card will not trigger rental car coverage on your Turo car rental. That’s only an option when renting from established rental car agencies.

If you’ve already got your own personal car insurance policy, check with your provider to see whether that coverage will apply to your Turo rental. But don’t assume it will – you have to check! Otherwise, you'll have to purchase an insurance policy through Turo for your rental.

Turo typically offers three options: minimum, standard, and premier coverage. Here’s a quick breakdown of what each plan entails, but be sure to read more on Turo’s insurance policies.
