Turo Launches in Canada, Letting Users Rent Out Their Cars for Cash

Car rental marketplace Turo announced today it will launch in Canada, marking its first expansion outside of the US.

Empowering Canadians to turn their idle cars into earnings engines, Turo is the first peer-to-peer car rental company in Canada.

Putting Canada’s 23 million vehicles to better use, Turo says it allows car owners to offset the cost of car ownership by renting their idle vehicles to pre-approved travellers, while helping travellers find the perfect vehicle for their next adventure.

Cars rented on Turo typically cost 30 per cent less than traditional car rentals and car owners can expect to earn an average of $500 per month.
