Guidelines

For any issues, including a flat tire, call Turo Roadside Assistance at 1-866-735-2901. Additional drivers must meet same rental qualifications as the renter and must be registered with Turo on the trip itinerary. There are no fees for additional drivers. Pets and Smoking • Clean, hypoallergenic pets are ok in a kennel or on a pet seat cover with prior permission from vehicle owner! Woof! 🐶🐾💕 • A cleaning fee applies for excessive pet hair removal. • Stains, spills, excessively dirty interiors, or excessively dirty exteriors upon return of vehicle will incur a cleaning fee up to $250 per Turo guidelines. • Please note: smoking is not allowed in the vehicle, including e-cigarettes. If smoking is detected upon return of the vehicle, a fee up to $250 will be assessed as I have to remove the vehicle from listings for several days while it undergoes a thorough interior detail. This is to keep my customers who are sensitive to smoke as well as guests traveling with children comfortable and safe. Thank you for your understanding and compliance. Driver Licensing • Primary renter and any additional drivers listed on itinerary must be in possession of valid state-issued Driver's license, or International equivalent, at time of vehicle pickup. "Learner’s Permits” are not accepted. • Any license which, on its face, restricts the licensee to the use and operation of a vehicle equipped with a form of a breathalyzer apparatus is not accepted. • Temporary Driver’s Licenses may be refused if I am unable to otherwise verify the customer’s identity or verify the authenticity of the temporary license. Additional Government-issued identification may be required. • Treat my car like you would your car. Please no disabling traction control, manually activating 4-wheel drive low, hard acceleration, hard stops, or aggressive maneuvers. Cars are equipped with real-time GPS trackers, 3G On-Board Diagnostic devices, and/or front/rear cameras and all activities may be recorded to ensure compliance and monitor vehicle health. Please do not tamper with or disable these devices. • Cars are exclusively rented for "routine" daily driving only. Special use is prohibited. This includes, but is not limited to, using the vehicle to move or relocate, to sleep in, to transport home improvement items (i.e. paint, mulch, etc), to transport people/food/items for money, to race or off-road, to tow anything, and any other condition that is not daily driving on improved roads. • The primary driver is responsible for any damages to the vehicle that occur during rental period, including stains on seats, damages to interior, and dents or scratches to the exterior.

Faqs

  • How does airport pickup work?
    If you have selected MSP airport as the car pickup location, please send me your airline and flight number as soon as possible. In most cases, I will bring the car to you and meet you curbside outside of your airline's baggage claim area. In some cases, I will leave the vehicle at Short Term Parking at your arrival terminal. Short term parking is connected to the terminals, and is a quick 2-minute walk. If vehicle is left at Short Term Parking, parking fees will be covered in most cases. The airport delivery fee includes both pickup and return, so I will meet you at MSP for your return flight as well, outside of your departure airline's check-in area.
  • What happens if I'm running late?
    If you think you'll be late to return the vehicle, please notify me as soon as possible, and request an extension to your trip via the app. Late fees will apply, per Turo guidelines, if the trip is not extended and the vehicle is returned after the trip has ended.
  • May I smoke in vehicle?
    No. The car smells pristine and I'd like to keep it that way. A smoke removal fee of up to $250 will be applied if smoke or odors are detected after a trip. This includes e-cigs, marijuana odor, or other odors.
  • Do I have to clean the vehicle prior to returning?
    You may select to return vehicle without cleaning it for $20 when booking! Otherwise, Turo guidelines state that all vehicles on the platform must be returned in the same condition as when rented. A cleaning fee may be applied at the end of the trip if the vehicle is returned noticeably dirtier inside or out. **PLEASE** Keep rolling luggage and suitcases off of the seats.

Lou was timely, professional and available if needed. The rental was very clean inside. Pick up and drop off was convenient. Some of the functions was difficult to work like Bluetooth which was very important to me. Also the truck seems to drive a little rough at times. Not picking up speed and a little noisy. Overall- the vehicle was decent to drive locally a few days.

Lou's response

Thanks for the feedback! This is by no means a luxury vehicle so you can’t expect a Cadillac-quiet cabin, but for a four-wheel drive that runs and drives perfectly, you can’t go wrong at this price! I’m also happy to assist guests with syncing their phones to the Microsoft Sync system in this vehicle when they ask. See you next time!

Lou was super responsive and accommodating. Had a scheduling issue and he came through with a pick-up at 5:15AM neither of us had planned for. Was great rental.

Joel D.-23 sept. 2019

Great car and Lou is great too!

Amanda D.-20 sept. 2019

Another great rental from Lou! He is now officially my go to for any car rental needs!

Paidamoyo C.-5 sept. 2019

Lou is the best I've rented with thus far. He made everything very easy and responded almost instantly to everything. I'll be using Lou again for sure!
