This week, Capital One partnered with car rental service Turo to offer elevated earning rates of up to 10X miles on Venture-branded cards. This partnership is set to last one year, but it could be extended.

Earlier this year, Delta launched a promotion with Turo offering members 2,000 bonus miles when linking their accounts and completing their first rental. That was nice for a one-off, but this new promotion could net you quite a few more miles over the next year if you're a frequent Turo user.

What is Turo?

Turo is a car-sharing service originally launched in 2010 as RelayRides and rebranded to Turo in 2015. Rentals started in just the U.S., Canada, and U.K. but have now expanded to 56 countries worldwide. Unlike other rental companies, Turo allows you to rent from private owners — similar to staying at Airbnbs instead of hotels.

Say you want to rent a car in Edinburgh, Scotland. A quick search shows Teslas, Porches and BMWs among the cars available to hire.

10X Miles with Turo Partnership

Capital One Venture-branded cardholders can now get a huge bonus when using Turo. Now through May 16, 2023, Capital One Venture-branded cardholders will earn up to 10X miles on Turo rentals.

Turo rentals are classified as travel expenses, and many credit cards only offer 1X-3X points for travel category spending. From that standpoint, 5X or 10X are a nice boost.

Downsides of Renting Through Turo

One disadvantage to using Turo is that rental car insurance from credit cards does not extend to Turo rentals. Therefore, you could spend more on insurance fees to cover yourself than you're gaining with this promotion.

The benefits of using Turo will depend on which country you're renting in. If you're looking for a car rental in the U.K., you'll probably end up paying less on a Turo rental including insurance than you would at a major car rental company. That probably wouldn't be the case in the U.S. where you could use credit card-provided rental insurance to cover the car through a traditional rental company. So this promotion benefits world travelers the most.
