Nondiscrimination policy

Last revised: September 28th, 2017

Our community is the foundation of our business—without you, we wouldn’t exist—so we rely on good people to do good things, and to treat each other and their property with respect, dignity, and compassion. Our shared commitment to these values enables every member of our community to feel welcome on our platform regardless of the way they look, who they love, what they believe, how they self-identify, where they’re from, or when they were born. Discrimination of any kind is not tolerated in the Turo community.

Race, color, ethnicity, religion, age, national origin, ancestry, sexual orientation, gender, military service, disability, gender identity, or marital/parental status

Turo members may not

  • Make any statement that discourages or indicates a preference for or against any guest on account of race, color, ethnicity, religion, age, national origin, ancestry, sexual orientation, gender, military service, disability, gender identity, or marital/parental status.

Turo hosts may not

  • Decline or cancel reservations based on race, color, ethnicity, religion, age, national origin, ancestry, sexual orientation, gender, military service, disability, gender identity, or marital/parental status.
  • Impose any different terms or conditions based on race, color, ethnicity, religion, age, national origin, ancestry, sexual orientation, gender, military service, disability, gender identity, or marital/parental status.
  • Post any listing that discourages or indicates a preference for or against any guest on account of race, color, ethnicity, religion, age, national origin, ancestry, sexual orientation, gender, military service, disability, gender identity, or marital/parental status.

Gender identity

Turo hosts may

Disability

Turo hosts may not

  • Make assumptions about the guest’s ability to operate their vehicle.
  • Decline or cancel a trip based on a guest’s actual or perceived disability.
  • Inquire about the existence or severity of a guest’s disability, or the means used to accommodate a disability. If a potential guest raises his or her disability, a host should discuss whether their vehicle meets the potential guest’s needs.
  • Post any listing or make any statement that discourages or indicates a preference for or against any guest who may have a disability.
  • Refuse to communicate with a guest with a hearing disability via their preferred mode of communication.

Turo hosts may

  • State factual information about the accessibility features of their listing (i.e. automatic doors, no storage space for a wheelchair, inaccessible car location, etc.).

Familial status

Turo hosts may not

  • Decline, cancel, or impose any different terms or conditions for a reservation based on familial status (having a child under the age of eighteen, being pregnant, or in the process of adopting or gaining custody of a child).

Turo hosts may

  • Provide factually accurate information about their listing’s features (or lack of them) that could make the listing unsafe or unsuitable for families with children or infants.
  • Contact customer support if both guest and host are unable to provide proper accommodations for a guest’s family needs. For instance, a guest arrives to pick up a car with a child who is required to have a car seat without one.

Personal preference

Turo hosts may

  • Decline or cancel reservations based on other factors excluding race, color, ethnicity, religion, age, national origin, ancestry, sexual orientation, gender, military service, disability, gender identity, or marital/parental status, except as noted above. For example, a host can decline a guest who indicates a desire to tow a boat or film a commercial with the vehicle.

Countries outside of the United States and European Union

Turo hosts aren’t required to comply with the above policies if they violate local laws.

What happens when a member of the Turo community doesn’t comply with these policies?

Turo will review reports of discrimination on a case by case basis, and impose consequences on community members who violate our nondiscrimination policies, which may or may not include removal from the Turo marketplace.

As the Turo community grows, we will continue to ensure that our policies continue to make everyone feel welcome and respected in all of their interactions with Turo community members.
