How to Fight and Waive Turo Fees by Yourself

If your host includes an incidental cost or fee in your invoice that does not fall under the list of costs allowed by Turo, you can dispute the fees. Before disputing an invoice, however, first, go through your responsibilities for a car while on a trip to determine if you have legitimate grounds for taking legal action. If you still decide to dispute, follow the following steps:

  1. Go to the Trip Details page of the trip in question
  2. Open the link to view the invoice
  3. At the bottom of the invoice, tap "Dispute."
  4. You will receive a prompt request to confirm the disputed charge and why
  5. You will also be asked to upload any relevant pre-and post-trip photos. These photos must have been taken 24 hours before the trip and a maximum of 24 hours after the trip.
  6. After you submit your dispute, the host will be notified. The host, in this case, will have 72 hours to do any of the following:
  • Cancel the invoice
  • Send you a new invoice
  • Escalate the issue to customer care to resolve

While the above process may be helpful, one thing is for sure- it is very stressful and time-consuming. What is more, you may not get your issue resolved in the long run. However, the situation is not the same with DoNotPay. We offer you a faster and more convenient way of fighting Turo fees with just a few clicks.
