How many photos to take
You must upload at least one photo of your vehicle when you create your listing. We suggest you add at least six. Include exterior shots of the whole car taken from different angles. Take a few photos of the interior as well.
What photos to take
If you use the Turo app to list your vehicle, we’ll guide you through taking and uploading a series of photos. If you use our website to list your vehicle or to add photos to a current listing, we suggest getting these vehicle shots:
- ¾ angle of the front
- Driver’s side
- Front seats
- Rear seats
- Features that guests would find attractive, such as storage space or the dashboard
When to add photos
You can add or update the photos on your vehicle listing at any time. If you’re not getting many trip requests, take a look at your listing photos. Do you have enough photos to pique a guest’s interest? Do the photos show your vehicle at its best? If not, take and upload new shots following the guidelines listed below.
Read through our listing photo requirements and instructions for help adding or removing photos.
Photo best practices
How to get high-quality photos
To get the best photographs for your Turo listing, we recommend the following:
- Photograph in daylight in a scenic or uncluttered location.
- Take photos in landscape (horizontal) format. Portrait photos don’t transfer well to your listing.
- Stand at least two yards away from your car to capture the whole vehicle, but don’t fill the frame. Photos are cropped around the edges when they upload to your listing.
- Make sure the car is clean before taking photos, especially interior shots.
- Avoid extreme close-ups.
- Review photos before you upload them. Don’t use any that are blurry or have distracting elements.
What to avoid
To keep yourself safe and your listing accurate, we recommend taking these steps:
- Avoid using filtering or other image-editing programs.
- Don’t include any public artwork, logos, or messaging that may be copyrighted in your photos. And, make sure the car itself doesn’t violate any copyright laws.
- Keep your license plate number out of your photos and make sure your home isn’t in the background of your pictures.
- Don’t show any people without their consent. Don’t show children in your photos.
- Don’t feature dogs, cats, or other animals in your photos unless you allow pets in your car on Turo trips. You can read our Pet policy.
- Don’t use outdated photos. Show your car in its current condition.
- If your car has any newly broken, damaged, or missing parts, take new photos and remove the old ones.
- Update your vehicle description, too.
