We’ve made it easy for guests to pay hosts for added costs via Turo’s Reimbursement tool.
How soon should I expect to be notified about added costs?
Fuel replacement and Excess distance
You must return a car with the same level of fuel it had at the start of the trip. You must also honor the allowable mileage limit for the trip.
Hosts have up to 72 hours after a trip’s end to request reimbursement from you for fuel replacement and for any additional miles or kilometres traveled during the trip.
Tickets, Tolls, and Fees
Guests are responsible for moving violations and other tickets incurred during their trip, including parking tickets given up to 24 hours after the trip end. Guests must also pay the cost of any bridge or road tolls or fees charged in high-traffic areas, such as the London congestion charge.
Hosts can request funds for tickets, tolls, and fees within 30 days of the trip end via the Reimbursement tool; however, because each transportation authority has a different billing cycle, hosts have up to 90 days to submit these charges to Turo for guests.
If you book a trip with a Commercial Host -- that is, a host who provides their own commercial rental insurance to guests -- those hosts may use Turo to file for reimbursement for parking tickets and tolls, or they may contact you directly to collect for these costs. For more information on Commercial Hosts, please check out this article.
How do I pay these costs?
When you receive a reimbursement notice, you can pay the host directly through our website or the Turo app. The request for reimbursement will be on your Dashboard, and we’ll also notify you via email. If the charge is not correct, you can dispute it and submit documentation to Customer Support to prove your case. You can also message the host directly to dispute the charge. If you and your host agree on a different payment amount, your host can withdraw their request.
If you don’t respond to or dispute a reimbursement request within 72 hours, it will automatically resolve in the host’s favor, and you’ll be charged the requested amount.
If you know you’ve incurred incidental costs during your trip, we encourage you to inform your host at the end of your trip so you can quickly cover those costs. We pass 100% of your payment on to your host (with the exception of mileage costs) and apply a 3% processing charge. If the host needs our help to submit the reimbursement, we charge an administrative fee of $25.*
For questions about cleaning fees, late fees, or anything else, contact Turo support, and we’ll be happy to help.
If you need to file a damage claim or report an accident, please use our Resolutions tool.
