San Francisco-based peer-to-peer car-sharing service Turo is expanding to Germany, Tech Crunch reported.

In Germany, Turo, which has more than 200,000 listed vehicles and 5 million total users, will partner with Allianz to insure vehicles for both owners and renter.

In September 2017, the company acquired Daimler’s Croove, an in house product that provided the same service as the San Francisco-based startup. Turo acquired the automaker’s car-sharing service and now operates it in the U.S., Canada, and the U.K.
