DISPUTE RESOLUTION

Informal Negotiations

To expedite resolution and control the cost of any dispute, controversy, or claim related to these Terms of Use (each “Dispute” and collectively, the “Disputes”) brought by either you or us (individually, a “Party” and collectively, the “Parties”), the Parties agree to first attempt to negotiate any Dispute (except those Disputes expressly provided below) informally for at least thirty (30) days before initiating arbitration. Such informal negotiations commence upon written notice from one Party to the other Party.

Binding Arbitration

Any dispute arising from the relationships between the Parties to this contract shall be determined by one arbitrator who will be chosen in accordance with the Arbitration and Internal Rules of the European Court of Arbitration being part of the European Centre of Arbitration having its seat in Strasbourg, and which are in force at the time the application for arbitration is filed, and of which adoption of this clause constitutes acceptance. The seat of arbitration shall be Lisbon, Portugal. The language of the proceedings shall be Portuguese. Applicable rules of substantive law shall be the law of Portugal. 

Restrictions

The Parties agree that any arbitration shall be limited to the Dispute between the Parties individually. To the full extent permitted by law, (a) no arbitration shall be joined with any other proceeding; (b) there is no right or authority for any Dispute to be arbitrated on a class-action basis or to utilize class action procedures; and (c) there is no right or authority for any Dispute to be brought in a purported representative capacity on behalf of the general public or any other persons.

Exceptions to Informal Negotiations and Arbitration

The Parties agree that the following Disputes are not subject to the above provisions concerning informal negotiations and binding arbitration: (a) any Disputes seeking to enforce or protect, or concerning the validity of, any of the intellectual property rights of a Party; (b) any Dispute related to, or arising from, allegations of theft, piracy, invasion of privacy, or unauthorized use; and (c) any claim for injunctive relief. If this provision is found to be illegal or unenforceable, then neither Party will elect to arbitrate any Dispute falling within that portion of this provision found to be illegal or unenforceable and such Dispute shall be decided by a court of competent jurisdiction within the courts listed for jurisdiction above, and the Parties agree to submit to the personal jurisdiction of that court.

Specific terms for guests

If you reserve a car using the Services, the subsequent sections also apply:

Guest commitment

As a guest, you agree to be a legally licensed driver and show proof of your current valid driver’s license to the host.
As a guest, you also agree to submit your valid driver’s license before making any booking using Tuuggo’s Services.
You shall take reasonable precautions to return the car and any applicable Extras on schedule and in essentially the same condition as received.
You will not allow anybody other than the Approved Driver stated in the trip specifics to drive the car you reserved.

Guest financial responsibility for physical damage to the vehicle

The guest is financially liable for all physical damage to or theft of a booked car that occurs during a trip, as well as any additional expenses and fees resulting from damage of any sort to the vehicle, regardless of who is proven to be at fault. This obligation applies whether or not the principal guest has their own motor insurance.
Under their own automotive coverage, primary guests may be covered for damage to the booked vehicle. When you rent a car on Tuuggo, you agree that if the booked vehicle sustains damage during the trip, you will cooperate with Tuuggo to file a claim for compensation under any insurance policy that applies to the loss.
The guest can limit the amount they are obligated to pay out of their own pocket in the event there is damage to the booked vehicle during the booked trip by choosing a protection plan for the Services.

Auto liability insurance

Most hosts who provide a car for sharing on the Tuuggo Services are unable to provide you with liability insurance. All protection plans available through the Tuuggo Services include coverage under a liability insurance policy for automobiles. The insurance policy used through Tuuggo in Portugal is provided by Caravela Seguros and does not offer defense or indemnity for any claim brought by Tuuggo. If the guest has their own personal auto coverage, it will take precedence over Tuuggo protection based on a number of variables, including relevant legislation, where the guest books the vehicle, and/or where the accident or damages occur. Terms and conditions apply.

Use of the vehicle

You may not use a car until the trip starting time, and you must return the vehicle on time and at the exact spot. A current legal driver’s license must be presented to the host. You must use the vehicle with reasonable caution. You must always operate the vehicle safely and in accordance with all relevant laws, including speed limits and bans on intoxicated or distracted driving. You must wear seat belts while operating the car and make sure that all of your passengers do as well. You must also comply with any rules or regulations about child safety seats and other child protective measures. You must not leave the automobile open or the keys unattended (such as in the ignition). You must not use any vehicle booked using the Services for any unlawful purpose. The list of restricted applications is not intended to be complete. If you abuse a vehicle, you will be held completely financially accountable for all related claims, loss, or damage, and your protection plan may be canceled.

Condition of the vehicle

You acknowledge that the cars and Extras provided through the Services are owned by third parties. Each host is responsible for adhering to all legal regulations (including ensuring the car is registered and insured) and keeping their vehicle(s) safe and roadworthy. Before you begin using the car, please do a visual examination. If you discover damage during your initial inspection, you should provide images of such pre-existing damage and send them by email to (Tuuggo’s support team) at the start of your reservation to guarantee you are not held liable for pre-existing damage. If you discover damage during your initial inspection but do not report it, Tuuggo, third-party administrators, or insurance partners may conclude that the damage happened during your reservation term. If you suspect the car is unsafe to drive after your initial check, please do not drive it; instead, call the Tuuggo support team immediately at (+351) 933778811.

No responsibility for the vehicles

You acknowledge that Tuuggo is not responsible and shall not be liable for the safety, roadworthiness, or legal status (e.g., whether the vehicle is legally registered or the subject of a stolen vehicle report) of any vehicles shared via the Services, in addition to our policies requiring hosts to ensure their vehicles are in safe and operable condition, legally registered to be driven on public roads, not the subject of a missing or stolen vehicle report, and have a clean title (e.g., no accidents).

Incident reporting

If you selected a protection package when booking your trip through the Services, you must report any damage to the vehicle you are using immediately to Tuuggo at help.tuuggo.com or (+351) 933778811. You must also notify the police if there has been an accident. You must make every attempt to get evidence from any available witnesses and give Tuuggo or third-party claims administrators a written description of the event and any other information required, including the identification and insurance information of any individuals engaged in the incident. You must also cooperate with Tuuggo, third-party claims administrators, or insurers in any loss inquiry. You may not use the vehicle again after an incident unless you have the specific approval of Tuuggo employees. Failure to immediately report an event or participate in an inquiry may result in the reduction or cancellation of any protection plan obtained via the Services.

Vehicle theft

The following actions may result in law enforcement reporting the car you have booked as stolen, thereby exposing you and any other driver to arrest, civil and/or criminal fines, and the cancellation of your protection plan:

  • If you do not return the car you reserved at the time and location agreed upon with the host and/or specified in your reservation, 
  • If the car is returned to a location other than the one specified in the reservation or agreed to with the host. Any damage, loss, or theft to a car that occurs before the host examining the vehicle upon return at the conclusion of the reservation is the responsibility of the visitor.
  • If you mislead information to the host about car reservations, use, or operation
  • If the interior components of the car are stolen or damaged, or the vehicle itself is stolen or damaged, while the vehicle is left unlocked, running, or unattended with the keys not secured throughout the reservation time.
  • If you fail or refuse to contact the host, police, Tuuggo, or other authors in good faith,
  • If you fail or refuse to provide the host, police, Tuuggo, or other authorities with a detailed report of any accident or vandalism involving the car, or otherwise fail to participate in the investigation of any accident or vandalism, you will be charged.
  • If the vehicle is operated by anyone who has given a fictitious name, false address, or a false or invalid driver’s license, whose driver’s license becomes invalid during the reservation period, who has obtained the keys without the host’s permission, or who misrepresents or withholds facts to/from the host or Tuuggo material to the booking, use, or operation of the vehicle, the host will cancel the reservation.
 

Specific terms for hosts

The following sections also apply if you share your vehicle through the Services:

Host commitments
As a host, you agree to supply a car that is safe, legally registered, and insured, has current license plates, a clean (non-salvage/branded/written off) title, and is in excellent mechanical condition. You shall supply such a car on schedule, but only to a visitor who is designated as an Approved Driver for the trip on the Services. You agree to keep your listings comprehensive and correct and to honor any claims made in your listings, including the price provided to a visitor. You will not cancel a reservation to obtain a greater charge from a visitor. You will not provide any vehicle or optional Extra that you do not own or have authorization to share, or that cannot be shared for remuneration under the terms and circumstances of any third-party arrangement, including, but not limited to, a lease or finance agreement. If your car is subject to a lease, loan, or other financing agreement, you must certify that sharing it on Tuuggo does not violate the conditions of the lienholder’s contract. You will not provide any Extra that is not safe, clean, and appropriate for the intended usage. You will not provide any car that has been reported as lost or stolen. You will not sell any vehicle that is the subject of a safety recall until you have appropriately addressed the issue at hand. You will not provide a vehicle that is not roadworthy (i.e., not “street legal”) in the place where it is shared, and no unlawful modifications will be made to any part of the car. You will remove any firearms or other weapons from your car before allowing a visitor to use it. You will repay loans related to your Tuuggo business on time and in full.
 
Information given at registration
When you join up for Tuuggo, you will specify which vehicles you wish to advertise for sharing via the Services. Each vehicle must fulfill the specifications listed here: (ADICIONAR VEHICLE REQUIREMENTS). You may only use the Services in connection with cars that you own or have the relevant rights and licenses to share in exchange for reimbursement.
 
Listing only on the Services

Any car that you list on the Services must only be listed on the Services. You are not permitted to post any vehicles that you plan to offer through the Services on any other car-sharing marketplace. In Tuuggo’s exclusive discretion, failure to comply with this condition may result in fines, penalties, rejection of physical damage claims, withdrawal of the car from the Services, account cancellation, or other action. This does not limit Commercial Hosts’ (as defined below) ability to maintain their own rental car business or prohibit a vehicle from being listed on ride-sharing or other delivery services when not on a Tuuggo reservation.

 
Vehicle availability

Once a trip has been scheduled, you must make the car available or deliver the vehicle as the guest expects. If you provide the visitor the option to pick up your car at a fixed place, you must provide Tuuggo with an exact location and verify that the vehicle is available at that location at the start of the reservation time. To be eligible for available protection plans, you must verify that a prospective guest has a current, valid driver’s license before providing the guest with your vehicle. You must also ensure that the driver’s license matches the name on the reservation and that the person picking up the vehicle appears to match the photograph on a facially valid driver’s license.

 
Pricing, earnings, and payments

You will be able to establish and change the vehicle’s pricing as you see fit. Tuuggo will pay you the money received from visitors who reserve your car, less any applicable Tuuggo charges. Fees are described in detail here (ADICIONAR AQUI EXPLICAÇÃO DE FEES). To the extent that you owe Tuuggo or any third-party lender money for any reason, Tuuggo retains the right to take that amount from your earnings payout, debit your bank account, charge any of your payment methods on file, and/or send you an invoice.

You agree to be bound by the Paypal Terms, which may be modified from time to time. As a condition of Tuuggo enabling payment processing services through Paypal, you authorize Tuuggo to obtain all necessary access and perform all necessary activity on your Paypal Connected Account to facilitate sharing of your vehicle. Tuuggo reserves the right to switch payment processing vendors at its discretion.
Maintenance
You must inspect your vehicle regularly for any flaws in its operation or safety. You guarantee that your vehicle is always safe and roadworthy, in excellent mechanical condition, and in full compliance with all relevant inspection and registration requirements. Only automobiles with a clean, non-salvaged, non-written-off, non-washed, and non-branded title will be included. Before permitting your vehicle to be booked, you agree to react to any applicable recall or similar safety alerts and execute any required action. Furthermore, if Tuuggo considers that your car does not meet reasonable standards, it may warn you and has the right to delete or reject listing your vehicle until its concerns are addressed. Tuuggo may, but does not guarantee, that steps will be made to ensure the safety of cars rented through the Services. More information about our car qualifying requirements may be found here (ADICIONAR vehicle requirements).
 
Reporting vehicle damage

If you did not decline a protection plan made available through the Services and believe that a guest has caused any damage to your vehicle, you are required to report that damage as soon as you become aware of it (but no later than 24 hours after the scheduled end of the trip) and to cooperate reasonably in the investigation of the damage so that it can be covered. Based on the inquiry, Tuuggo or third-party claims administrators will decide if the damage happened within the reservation period and whether it is covered by insurance. If it was, and you did not refuse a protection plan made available through the Services, you will be paid for your loss in the manner stated in the sections below. We may not be able to ascertain the cause if Tuuggo is not provided timely notification as indicated in this paragraph, or if you do not cooperate reasonably in the investigation by Tuuggo or third-party claims administrators. In that scenario, you agree that we may refuse to refund or compensate for such harm.

 
Liability insurance

All host protection plans offered on the Services include coverage under a third-party automobile liability insurance policy. In Portugal, the policy is issued to Tuuggo by Caravela Seguros and does not provide a defense or indemnification for any claim asserted by Tuuggo. 

 
Physical damage to your vehicle

Physical damage reimbursement and coverage: The protection plans available to hosts address the allocation of financial consequences of physical damage to the vehicle offered by a host during a trip. Physical damage contractual reimbursement from Tuuggo applies to your vehicle in the event of a collision and to comprehensive events during the trip and is subject to terms and exclusions. Learn more about protection plans here.

 
Missing vehicles

If you chose a protection plan through the Services and your vehicle goes missing, is not returned, and/or is stolen during the reservation period (or extension period), you must immediately contact a Tuuggo representative and follow his or her instructions, including cooperating with Tuuggo, the police, and any other authorities in all matters related to the theft investigation. If Tuuggo instructs you to make a police report, you must do so within 24 hours of getting the order.

 
Indemnification of host

If you selected a protection plan through the Services, Tuuggo or its insurers will defend and indemnify you, subject to any exclusions or limitations in the policy or policies of insurance contained with the protection plan, in the event of a claim for a loss or injury that occurs during the use of your vehicle by a guest (or by Tuuggo itself), subject to your compliance with these Terms and the Policies. In connection with any indemnified claim, you must provide Tuuggo or its insurers with immediate written notice of the claim, provide Tuuggo sole authority over the defense of the claim, and provide Tuuggo with reasonable cooperation in the defense of the claim, all at Tuuggo’s expense. If Tuuggo or its insurers reimburse you for a lost or damaged vehicle and you later receive payment for some or all of your vehicle from a third party (e.g., a third-party insurance company or restitution), you must reimburse Tuuggo in an amount equal to, but not exceeding, the funds provided to you by Tuuggo.

 
Additional terms for Commercial Hosts

You are a “Commercial Host” if you refuse a protection plan made available through the Services (for example, if you opt to provide your own commercial/rental coverage to visitors) or if no protection plan is made available through the Services. When you reject a Tuuggo protection package or where no protection package is offered, you waive on behalf of yourself and any affiliated people (including, without limitation, employees, employers, associates, contractors, or any other related personnel) or entities (whether they be corporations, partnerships, sole proprietorships, limited liability companies, or otherwise) (collectively, “Affiliates”) in exchange for keeping more of the trip price for yourself. You represent and warrant that (1) you are a licensed commercial rental car company or are authorized to act on behalf of and bind a licensed commercial rental car company in connection with listing vehicles on Tuuggo, or (2) you are an individual or company or are authorized to act on behalf of and bind a company, that can offer commercial rental car insurance to guests when you choose to decline a protection plan or where none is offered in your area.

You further acknowledge and agree that when you choose to provide your own commercial rental insurance, you will not be entitled to any protection or coverage from Tuuggo or any affiliates, including financial responsibility for physical damage, third-party liability protection, uninsured or underinsured motorist coverage, PIP or any similar coverage or indemnification, roadside assistance, or trust and safety support as part of a booking of your vehicle. On all relevant vehicle and excess liability insurance, Tuuggo must be included as an extra insured. These clauses supplant and replace any representation made by Tuuggo or anyone acting on its behalf, including, but not limited to, statements made on the Services, these Terms, the Help Center, the Policies, emails, and/or marketing materials, regarding protection schemes, insurance, and roadside assistance that are generally provided to hosts and guests when the hosts do not decline protection via the Services.
When you opt to deny protection, Tuuggo maintains the right, but does not have an obligation, to verify that you are, or are operating on behalf of, a registered commercial rental car firm and are qualified to provide commercial auto rental insurance to renters/drivers of your cars. You acknowledge and agree that Tuuggo may, at any time and for any reason, automatically default all of your vehicles to a protection plan of our choosing, with all applicable fees (if such a plan is available in your area), remove your listings, or suspend your Tuuggo Account.
 
In addition to any other obligations you might have, you must declare on your listing page any applicable additional expenses, fees, and/or taxes you charge (such as a security deposit or if you do not accept debit cards, for example). Never take guests by surprise at pick-up with additional fees or obligations. If you fail to be upfront with guests regarding fees, prices, and requirements on your car listing page, Tuuggo retains the right to delete your listings, default your vehicles to a protection plan chosen by us, and suspend your Tuuggo Account.
You realize that it would be challenging to determine with certainty the precise damages that might arise from your violation of this provision. You are responsible for providing Tuuggo with liquidated damages of 6,000€ for each breach. This sum is not meant to be a penalty for any such violation, but rather to serve as a fair estimate in cases when it is impossible to determine with confidence the precise amount of real damages.
 
You agree to defend, indemnify, and hold Tuuggo, its subsidiaries, affiliates, employees, officers, directors, and agents, as well as any of your guests or their authorized drivers, free and clear of any and all claims, demands, suits, judgments, costs, expenses, liabilities, attorneys’ fees, damages, consequential damages, punitive damages, property damage, personal injury, theft, or other liabilities resulting from or connected with any reservation or use of any vehicle, without limitation.
