Only passenger cars legally registered in the United States (except New York), in certain provinces of Canada, in Germany, and in certain other countries are eligible for listing. Cars in the US and Canada must be no more than 12 years old; cars in Germany must be no more than 15 years old. Cars must have fewer than 130,000 miles/200,000 kilometres, have a clean (e.g., not a "branded" or "salvage") title, must have never been declared a total loss, and have a fair market value of up to US$150,000* in the US, CA$75,000 in Canada, and €75,000 in Germany.** We also accept the Tesla S and the Tesla X. You can read more about vehicle coverage limits here. Turo reserves the right to modify its eligibility requirements at any time for any reason.
The following is an illustrative list of vehicles which are ineligible for listing: passenger vans, cargo vans, box trucks, limousines, recreational vehicles (RVs), vehicles requiring a commercial license to operate legally on public roads, vehicles designed primarily for off-road use (e.g. Ford F-350s), certain makes/models such as the Lotus, farm equipment, construction equipment, motorcycles, GEM or similar vehicles not designed for highway use.
We also invite “specialty” or “classic” car owners to list their cars in our marketplace, as long as the vehicles meet our specialty car requirements. In the US and Canada, specialty cars must be older than model year 1990, with a market value of up to US$85,000 in the US and CA$75,000 in Canada. The car must be in excellent condition (both mechanical and physical) and have all seat belts in safe, working condition. Any specialty car is subject to additional review.
Specialty cars listed in Germany may have a market value of up to €75,000, must be more than 30 years old, and must have an H (historic) registration. Most cars with an H registration will have a license plate that ends with an “H” to indicate that designation, e.g. S JE 69 H. Historic cars with a red 07 registration are not allowed on the platform. In the rare case that a speciality car in Germany is stolen or totaled, the car owner must provide Turo with an expert value report.
* Turo provides coverage for the actual cash value (ACV) of the car, up to a limit of US$125,000 in the US, CA$75,000 in Canada, and €75,000 in Germany.
** Cars listed on Turo before March 7, 2016 that are older than model year 2005 or have more than 130,000 mi/200,000 km may remain listed as long as they are in excellent condition, don’t have a branded title, and continue to comply with all legal, safety, and mechanical standards.
You are responsible for knowing your vehicle history prior to listing your car. We recommend that you check Carfax prior to listing your vehicle in the event you are unsure of the vehicle title history.
