Turo is available in the United States, in the Canadian provinces of Alberta, Nova Scotia, Ontario, and Quebec, in Germany, in the United Kingdom, and in many other countries. In Germany, your ability to list your car on Turo (and benefit from a protection plan) depends on who your personal insurance provider is and what type of insurance you have for your vehicle. Please read on for more information.
If you are a vehicle owner with a personal insurance policy:
- Although your personal insurance will not be used during a Turo transaction, your personal insurer must approve of your participation in person-to-person car sharing. Therefore, you must verify with your insurer that you may participate in Turo’s marketplace. If you are unable to get approval from your personal insurance provider, your personal policy may be voided and you will be unable to obtain a new policy.
- You may not list or deliver your car outside of Germany. Your car must be registered in Germany. A guest can drive your car outside of Germany anywhere in the eurozone.
If you have a commercial rental policy:
- Any commercial rental insurance policy that meets Turo’s requirements may enroll in Turo’s Commercial Host program, as long as your insurance provider approves.
- If you list any vehicle and decline a protection plan in order to offer your own commercial rental insurance directly to your guest, any other car(s) you list on Turo will automatically be set to decline a protection plan.
- You may not list or deliver your vehicle(s) on Turo outside of Germany.
