Puzzled Peter Puzzled Peter wants to message a host before booking a car.
Peter is flying in from Spain for his holiday and wants to book a car with Turo. While he is browsing the Turo platform to find the perfect match, he sees a car he likes but isn’t sure if it has enough seats for him and his family. “How can I ask the host if the car has enough space for me and my family before I book the trip?”" he asks.
How can you help Peter?
You can tell Peter that each listing has the number of seats included at the top of the vehicle’s listing page. You should also tell Peter that the only way to message a host is by requesting to book a car at the same time.

Baffled Ben is lending his car for the first time and is unsure about the start time of the booking.
Ben is a first-time host and has a standing booking with James. James asked if he could pick up the car an hour earlier than agreed in the booking. "Should I hand over my car when James is early?", he doubts.
How can you help Ben?
You can advise Ben that any significant changes to a standing booking, like changing the start-time, must be updated through the Turo platform. This is important to ensure the right coverage in the protection plans. You can also share details on how James and Ben can modify the start time through the Turo app by providing a step-by-step guideline. Or alternatively, simply guide Ben to the self-help page on this topic.
What you need to know
Both host and guest will have questions about bookings that have been made. For a first time host it can be because they have never lent a car to someone from the Turo community and have questions or doubts on how the hand over procedure works. More information can be found on the following page.
Motivated Michelle is a new host and wonders how much she can earn.
Michelle just listed her car on the Turo platform and wonders how much money she will earn."How much of the total booking fee will I receive after a completed booking?", she asks you.
How can you help Michelle?
You can tell Michelle that Turo hosts typically receive 75% of the trip price, delivery fees, and additional mileages charges. Earnings range from 65% to 90% depending on the protection plan selected. You can also advise her to have a look at the self-help page on this topic by sharing the link on Earnings and Payments.
