Earn 2,000 SkyMiles After Completing Your First Trip With Turo

Plus, you can earn 500 SkyMiles with each subsequent trip thereafter.

You can earn 2,000 Delta Air Lines SkyMiles with your first trip using Turo — which is the largest car sharing marketplace in the world — instead of renting a vehicle the traditional way; and you can earn 500 SkyMiles thereafter with every subsequent trip using Turo…

…but you must link both your Turo account and Delta Air Lines SkyMiles membership account in order to earn SkyMiles for trips you take using Turo. Note that only one Turo account can be linked with your SkyMiles membership account.

Turo offers:

  • The choice of hundreds of models of vehicles which you will not find anywhere else
  • Cancel your reservation free of charge up to 24 hours before your trip starts
  • Customer support to answer your questions, which is available 24 hours per day, seven days per week
  • Roadside assistance, which is just a telephone call away to keep you safe and on the road
  • Your choice of insurance protection options are included, as all protection plans include coverage under a third-party automobile liability insurance policy issued to Turo by Travelers Excess and Surplus Lines Company — $750,000.00 for the Premier plan

Restrictions, terms, and conditions — including those of Turo and the Delta Air Lines SkyMiles frequent flier loyalty program — apply.

More Information About Turo

Turo — which was originally known as RelayRides — rents the private vehicles of car owners in hundreds of locations in almost every state throughout the United States and the District of Columbia.

If you rent a car with Turo, be aware that all new and existing listings have been automatically opted in to dynamic pricing, which “is an intelligent feature that adjusts your Turo listing’s daily prices automatically, which is designed to maximize your earnings with data-driven prices. It’s based on a powerful algorithm that incorporates seasonality, demand, geography, and car type.”

Smoking is not permitted at any time in any vehicle you rent through Turo; and pets are not allowed without explicit consent from the owner.

You can opt for the following options of picking up a car you rented through Turo:

  • Local pickup
  • City delivery
  • Airport delivery

You can also rent out your car out three ways with Turo — but you will not earn Delta Air Lines SkyMiles by doing so:

  • Deliver your car to custom locations around town, within a set radius
  • Deliver your car to nearby airports
  • Travelers pick up the car at your location

Professional photography of your car is complimentary when you list your car for rent.

Turo will cover any basic maintenance needs on cars during long-term — meaning one month or more — parking reservations. Basic maintenance includes:

  • Oil and filter changes
  • Tire rotation
  • Tire tread depth inspection
  • Windshield wiper maintenance
  • Basic mechanical inspections

Final Boarding Call

I do not see an expiration date with this offer; so it is likely ongoing.
