How much coverage should I carry for my liability when I am not using Turo?
I have three cars insured with Turo and I am comfortable with my coverage there. But when I drive the cars personally, what kind of limits should I have?

“Turo will only pay out when your cars are involved in an accident while you are hosting—not when you are driving them for your regular use.
The standard personal auto insurance policy has not caught up with the concept of “”carsharing”” yet, so your best bet would be to find an excellent commercial carrier. It is always a good idea to carry more than the state minimum in coverage; the recommended standard liability insurance limit is 100/300/50.
If you currently have a personal auto policy, the same advice applies. Make sure your carrier knows that you have a Turo policy for when the car is shared, and carry more than the minimum coverage for yourself.
