Guidelines

Please take your time to familiarize yourself with all the controls and set your mirrors and seat settings before hitting the road. PLEASE NOTE: ONLY PREMIUM FUEL (91 or better octane) AT PUMP. 1. Mirrors can be adjusted with a knob on driver side door. Please remember to set the mirror dial to the middle once adjusted, as it's easy to accidentally readjust with your knee! 2. Car has a touchscreen with Bluetooth capability, CarPlay, and built-in Tom-Tom GPS . Please set this up and familiarize yourself with the controls before taking to the road. 3. The brakes can be touchy if you are new to the Smart Car. The vehicle also has engine assisted braking and a "wet-clutch", this may make the car seem slightly jerkier at low speeds, but is a normal characteristic. 4. Before pick up, renter is 100% responsible for carrying their own insurance and for confirming that the insurance will cover a Turo rental. Only the approved renter or approved secondary renter may drive the vehicle, NO EXCEPTIONS. R 5. Please treat my vehicle with care. I am excited to offer my vehicle to renters and expect renters to treat them well and return clean with no damage. Any issues or damage must be reported to the Owner immediately. 6. Renters will be charged a $200 lost key fee for lost key, plus any additional expenses required to replace the key and deliver a new key if lost during active rental. 7. No pets allowed in the vehicle without Owner's written consent. Any violation of our pet policy will incur a $200 fee plus any applicable cleaning surcharges. 8. FLOOD WARNING: Do not leave vehicle in any low-lying or flood prone areas. Do not drive through large puddles or flooded roadways. Charleston is known for flash-flooding on our streets, which can happen in an instant and quickly make roads impassable. Renter is ultimately responsible for the safety and location of the vehicle at all times. If car is flooded out or damaged while in possession of Renter, Renter is immediately responsible for reimbursing Owner for any and all damages caused by Renter. 9. Vehicle is not to leave the State of South Carolina. All trips that extend outside of Charleston County must be pre-approved by Owner. Local trips only! 10. Premium Fuel Only! 11. Car is to be returned as clean as it was found prior to drop off and post cleaning disinfection by host. If you don’t have time to clean or have car cleaned and vacuumed you will be charged an additional fee. If you go to the beach, please vacuum all sand or select our cleaning fee option in the listing. 12. Host reserves the right to cancel reservation anytime before or during reservation for any mechanical issue, concern, or reason. All refunds/reimbursements will be evaluated on a case by case basis and mediated by Turo if need be.

Such a cute little car for zipping around the city. We rented this on the last day of our trip, as our flight didn't leave until the evening and we had to check out of our hotel at 11am. The car was fun to drive and easy to maneuver through traffic. And very easy to park! Has way more trunk space than you'd imagine as well. We fit our two carry-on suitcases and two carry-on totes into the back of the car, plus our purses! Was a quick check-in and easy to get going too! Would definitely rent from James again!

James's response

Thank you very much for renting with us Doree. We are glad you enjoyed our Smart car, and were able to zip around Charleston! We look forward to renting to you again in the future.
