There’s not a single car that is perfect for Turo. Instead, the right kind of car has to meet these requirements:
#1. Does it fit your local market?
#2. Does it fit into your budget?
If you live in an area where according to Turo, the category of vehicle you want to rent out is barely getting booked trips, odds are… you’ll experience the same.
In a place like Tucson Arizona, there’s a market for economy cars, but for luxury or even sports cars, the market isn’t quite there.
You could gamble and out-market the competition (of there is any) to steal all possible demand… but there’s no guarantee there.
Lastly, don’t get into huge debt buying a vehicle you can hardly afford. Justifying that it will pay for itself when it gets rented out is a bad idea.
Get your toes wet, rent your own vehicle on the weekend. See where it goes!
