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. 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

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Do I have to clean the vehicle prior to returning?

    You may select to return vehicle without cleaning it for $17 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.

  • May I use vehicle to tow a trailer or relocate?

    Per Turo policies and insurance rules, vehicle may not be used for any of the following: towing, off-roading or driving vehicle on unpaved roads, racing or aggressive driving, using the vehicle to move or relocate, using the vehicle to transport home improvement items (e.g. paint, mulch), or any other use that is not routine driving in improved roads.

  • Can someone except person who booked drive the vehicle?

    Only drivers approved by Turo and on the current reservation may drive the vehicle. There is no fee for additional drivers. Under no circumstance may the vehicle be loaned out to any person not approved to drive on Turo and whose name is not listed on the reservation.
