If you’re operating in an area where snow and ice are common during the winter months, please ensure that your car is outfitted with tires (or chains) suited for that weather. We strongly suggest that you keep your car weather-appropriate for all seasons, as travelers may reject or return a car they don’t feel comfortable or safe in.
For Canadian Hosts
In certain regions of Canada, you are required to have winter-certified tires. All owners on Turo are expected to comply with laws and regulations for vehicle, safety, condition and operation in their region. If you are listing your car in Canada, YOU MUST ensure it is equipped for the winter months in accordance with the regulations of the province it is registered in. Cars that are not in compliance may be subject to canceled reservations with no entitlement to host earnings and removal from the marketplace.
Vehicles in the province of Quebec are legally required to be fitted with winter tires from December 15th to March 15th, as noted here. Please check the specific requirements for your province or region.
