This article covers everything you need to know about whether or not Chime can be used to make payments on Turo.

Does Turo Accept chime?

Chime is accepted on Turo, alongside any long-term Debit card that is issued by some of the popular payment networks, such as Mastercard and Visa. However, there could be exclusions.

Apparently, Chime is a Visa Debit card.

Debit cards, after prepaid cards, are one of the few traditional plastic cards that are likely to get rejected on most platforms.


Well, most debit cards work more like gift cards, which are usually been issued by unknown payment networks and are used temporarily. Lastly, they don’t support 3D security.

Coming to Turo…

Basically, Turo only accepts two types of debit card

  • Debit Cards issued by MasterCard
  • Debit Cards issued by Visa

And according to the company, these debit cards must be linked to a checking account.

And thank goodness, this aspect is not in any way limited – the checking account can be from both an online bank or an offline bank.

However, there could be exclusions!

In as much as Debit Cards are openly accepted on Turo, reloadable debit cards, also knowns as prepaid debit cards are not accepted on Turo, for reasons best known to the company.

In other words, debit cards like Simple, Chase Liquid, or EDD are not accepted on Turo.

Satisfying the requirements of debit cards in Turo, Chime can be used to easily make payments on Turo. Likewise other debit cards like Ally are also accepted on Turo. 

What is the Charge for Turo Trip Paid with a Chime Card?

While some other payment methods on Turo, especially e-wallets, such as Apple pay and google pay don’t allow partial authorization, Chime does.

If you submit a trip request when paying with a Chime card, you’d be charged a $1 fee for payment authorization. However, it’s worth mentioning that this fee is only done to verify your account.

If the trip request was successfully accepted, you’ll be automatically charged the full fee of the trip, while your payment authorization fee of $1 gets refunded back into your account.

However, in a case where your trip request didn’t get accepted, your payment authorization fee would be refunded, likewise.

This is an upside to chime cards, because if you were to use cards from Google pay or Apple pay, you’d be charged a full fee, upon submitting a trip request.

And since we can’t tell whether or not the trip request would be accepted we’re left in suspense.

Meanwhile, even though the full trip fee would be refunded at a declined trip request, it could take longer to get your money back. Possibly up to a month.

Aside from Chime, What other payment Method Can you use on Turo?

Turo, unlike so many other services like it, has a good number of payment methods on its networks. However, there can be some strict rules guiding them.

First off, it’s worth knowing that Turo won’t accept your payment card if the name on it doesn’t correlate with the name used to create/verify your account.

Lastly, even after your payment card is accepted on the platform, a transaction could still be denied.

Normally, when you try to book a trip on Turo, it automatically sends your card information to your bank, requesting for a debit fee to be transferred to Turo.

Now, it’s left in the hands of the bank to accept or deny your payment.
