Guidelines

***GUIDELINES/POSSIBLE FEES*** - Bring/Upload a VALID ID that matches your name on this account or we cannot legally give you the vehicle. - Add any other drivers that will be driving the vehicle on the TURO App - LATE RETURNS: If you need more time, you can request an extension. If an extension is not made, Turo will simply calculate the cost of your additional usage based on your return time. So, if you want to extend the trip, use the Turo app to check if the car is available. If it is, request a change through the app and I'll accept right away. - MILE OVERAGE: Fee: See fee for each mile the car is over the allotted mileage. - SMOKING: Fee: $150 cleaning fee. Avoidance: As with all rental cars there is NO SMOKING allowed inside the vehicles. Please try to smoke outside the vehicle to avoid these extra charges. There is no smoking or using of cannabis (crumbles fallen on the floor has a strong smell) in this car and a $150 cleaning fee will be added to the trip if there is smoking/cannabis smell. De-smoking requires a vehicle be taken out of service for up to 24-hours so it can be cleaned with a natural deodorizer and an oxidation process. - PETS: Fee: $150.00 cleaning fee. Avoidance: People have allergies and pets can cause them. No pets are allowed in the vehicles. I am ok with pets in a carrier coming to/from the airport. Just let me know. - CLEANLINESS: Fee $30-150 Avoidance: All we ask is the vehicle comes back as clean as we have given it to you to avoid any cleaning charges. One Item I highly suggest the renter add from the Extras is the post trip cleaning ($12-$30 depending on car). This is a great way to save time at the end of the trip so you can skip the cleaning process. There can be up to a large cleaning fee if excessively dirty with multiple cleaning issues (i.e. smoking, pet hair, stains, etc.) - Full Tank of Gas: Just like the title states to avoid gas charges through TURO. I’m giving you a car topped off in the last 5 miles - you’ll see it’s above the F mark. When you return, you should give it back to me the same way. If i see that it’s lower than the F I’m going to go to the gas station and fill it and you’ll be billed. Rarely it may have less than a full tank; return with just as much fuel as it had when you started. You will absolutely enjoy this experience! Please stay safe out there and don't hesitate to contact me with any questions. Thank you!

Faqs

  • Do you have to charge the car?
    No, this is a hybrid and it charges automatically while you drive. No cumbersome plugs required. 50+ MPG depending on your driving habits. Regular unleaded gasoline.
  • Do I have to pay tolls?
    Yes, but not out of your pocket at toll booths. Use the SunPass lane. SunPass charges my credit card, so your tolls will be reimbursed to me after your trip. I will add up your tolls, send receipts and ask for reimbursement a day or so after your trip through the Turo app.
  • Am I responsible for cleaning the car before I return it?
    Yes. Unless you opt of the post-trip cleaning for a $12 fee. From Turo: With Turo, you’re not just getting any old rental car; you’re getting a car that’s part of a personal story, not a fleet. We therefore expect travelers to take care of the car as if it were their own. Cars should be returned in the same condition they were received. Whether you’re coming back from a coastal getaway or a month-long road trip, we hope you’ll remember to shake out the sand and any crumbs you may have dropped so the car is just as tidy as when you first picked it up. If you return the car in a noticeably dirtier condition and the owner notifies us, you may incur a cleaning fee.

Will probably never rent a car any other way again. No dealing with car rental counters. Car was ready and waiting as soon as we got off the plane! Great experience.

This is my first time renting from this company. The car is easy to get to and to returned. I got the car on full but the front of the car was a little dirty which I took pictures of. Jaren was great in communicating with me. We had an issue with the car where the battery was dead and I didn’t know what to do so I called text jaren on the app and he explained what to do but it was still not working we tried to get to the back trunc to get through the battery of the car we couldn’t open it. So we called few business forgotten that it was a Sunday so my husband called a company that advertise on Facebook and came to help us. He charge us a little change but I was very great full that he came to help us in the rain. Other than the battery issue it was ok.
