Good neighbor policy

We encourage our hosts to be good neighbors. Be mindful of parking and other restrictions in your neighborhood. Some communities prohibit street parking for cars engaged in commercial activity. We encourage all hosts to park their vehicles on private property, so as to not create parking problems for their neighbors.

Turo reserves the right to restrict vehicles and accounts if we receive complaints regarding host parking and vehicle storage.

Join Turo Talk today to connect with other hosts. Discuss the host experience, get answers to questions, and find additional resources.
