Kevin’s great to work with and even helped me out if a bind! 5/5 would rent from again!
Timothy made it so easy for me and the car was amazing. I will always rent from him at BWI.
This was my first time renting thru Turo. I was nervous something was going to go wrong & being stressed out enough the holidays. But Glen was just awesome and made everything no hassle, clean car smelled good. Easy pick up & drop off. I left something, he shipped it to me almost right away.
Car was clean and in good condition. Kalpin was a very nice young man. The pickup/drop off for this car required driving the owner off and picking him up to return to airport which adds about 15-20 minutes to process but worked out fine
Renter was super flexible. Had to change my trip three times and accepted all the changes right away.
It was a well-maintained car from a nice and flexible host. I highly recommend him!
Claude was always available and very quick with his responses, car was very clean, and the trip to and from the airport both ways was very simple.
Thanks Ryan, you helped make my travel transition smooth. I hope my future rentals are just as great!
Aleksandar was on-time both ways and was very communicative and helpful. Highly recommend.
Beautiful, fun car and punctual service. What more can you ask for? Definitely recommend.
Easy pick up and drop off. Will be renting from Mariah again.
Fantastic car and excellent communication! Super experience! Will never go through big company rental again!
really fun car to drive and a very respectful and nice owner.
This Porsche Cayman simply is a beautiful driving machine. Thanks Andy. Amazing!
Sergei was great to work with. He made everything so easy and we felt very confident. The roadmaster was very fun to drive and it was a great conversation point.
Glenn was great throughout the whole process, from before pickup, to after I returned his vehicle, excellent all around.
Andrew, was an amazing person to work with. I enjoyed renting his car. It was well taken care of and clean. It felt like I jumped in a brand new car. I had a lot of fun, and look forward to working with him in the future.
Very nice muscle car. Nice lady and easy to communicate. Look forward to next trip.

He was an amazing host. His car was clean. When problems arose he took care of it. He answered in a timely manner and when I needed to extended the trip he obliged with no problems.
Kevin was great! I enjoyed using his car and he was very understanding & communicative.
The Model 3 was a blast to drive, and TeslaRosa couldn’t have been easier to work with. I made more change requests and extensions than I can count, and they responded almost immediately every time, willing to help make the trip suit my needs. I’ll definitely be scheduling another trip with them next time I’m in the area.
This is truly the most amazing gentleman and vehicle I have ever encountered on Turo. The wealth of knowledge he had for the area and his extremely generous hospitality is completely unmatched anywhere I have ever been. I highly recommend rented from this gentleman when he has an availability you will never be disappointed I assure you.
Easy pickup and return! Clear instructions, everything just went perfect
Great trip using Estelle’s beetle. The car was super clean and comfortable and curbside drop off and pick-up was awesome! Will definitely rent this car again.
This was by far my best turo experience! If I could give ten stars I would! As a turo owner myself, I look for exceptional service and John blew my mind with communication, remote car starting, Virtually warming up the car. The car was amazing so fun to drive! Absolutely awesome
Ry is a pleasure to work with. Had to extend my rental and do a swap out and she made it a total pleasant experience. Will definitely rent from again!!
Nice clean car and Louis was easy to deal with! What more could I ask for! Everything went smooth and drop off and pick up was a great option! If your considering it, go for it; you won't be disappointed!
Sergei's Roadmaster is awesome! Pickup and drop off via the long term lot was a breeze and the car ran great. He is even sending the dinosaur that my son left in the back seat!
Great guys. They’re very responsive to any questions or concerns and the car was very clean and kept in mint condition. Delivery and pickup were a breeze and super convenient.
Very fuel economy friendly Golf TDI , had about 40MPG the whole trip , very nice car clean inside and out . Handled great . Kostia made the trip very easy met me at airport pick up . I would recommend this car and kostia to anyone who wants a stress free turo trip . Thank you !
The car is in good condition and a lot of fun. Very good communication, though it was through the app which was a little cumbersome. Owner was very good to work with.
Andrew is very nice to work with. 100% recommended. If you like sports cars, his MIII is it.
Hareesh was a true gentleman, and the car was a joy.
Claude is a very good person. Made my Turo experience awesome. Easy pick up and drop off.
Such a great car! Mr. Andrew is a very nice person! He keeps everything nice and simple. This is my first time using Turo, and I glad I rent the car from him. I am sure I will drive this 1LE again very soon!
Cool dude and an easy transaction. Met me right at my terminal. The VW was nice and clean and hardly sips any fuel!
Would highly recommend Rys rentals. Communication was quick and friendly, car ran beautifully.
Claude was quick to respond when I had to request an extra day. I would definitely recommend to rent again.
Everything you’d want in a rental and friendly professional service.
This was my first time using Turo and it was VERY CONVENIENT with a quick, smooth process. The owner walked me through the process and was available if needed. The car was GREAT! I had no complaints. I would definitely use them again.
Communication is key and that's what he gave and of course a great car. Thank you!!!
Nick was Awesome to work with and the car was clean inside and out! I will definitely rent from him again!
The car was great, clean and a pleasure to drive. Ryan was a really great host, easy to communicate with and very flexible for pick up and drop off. Would do it again any time!
Nana is a great host on turo. He was able to prepare the car for my trip for the next day. The car is maintained in a very good condition. It features many extras like USB charging ports and a cell phone mount.
Glen was outstanding in every way. Nice car, convenient and accommodating. Will definitely use him again!!!
Jerry was a great host. He and his team had great communication with me throughout my trip. Car was fun to drive and had a lot of pick up. The interior of the vehicle was a little worn,, but no more than the usual wear and tear on a vehicle of that age. Definitely worth the price I paid to drive a Mercedes to the wedding I went to.
Claude’s Honda Accord is a well kept and well maintained vehicle. Runs great as too. Claude is very professional and gives clear instructions on picking up and dropping off the car making it a seamless transaction. I’ll definitely rent again.
These guys are awesome i enjoyed driving the car it was everything the communication was a A1 definitely will be renting again
I will say Turo was Amazing and Emmaus made it completely easy! Communication was great and the car was Awesome! Thank You😊... and I will us and recommend your services.
Allen is great to work with! I will definitely rent from him again. Excellent!
AWESOME!! Absolutely AWESOME! This was my first use of Turo and it was more than I could have ever hoped for. Working with Andrew to complete the rental transaction was great. There were some initial difficulties but Andrew was patient and helpful in providing me the support necessary to resolve the problems. A great person to deal with. As for the car. WOW! Not only was it a gorgeous car to look at, it was a wonderful car to drive! I haven't had this much fun with a car as I did this one! It is a crying shame so many car manufacturers are moving away from manual transmissions on the floor and to paddle shifters on the steering wheel. Personally, I feel they do not give you the same feel for the car a manual tranny does. I can only hope the other Turo sponsors are as Gold Star as Andrew. He made this a great first time experience. As for the car, I truly hope I get the opportunity to drive it again. WOW!
It’s always a pleasure doing business with Mariah. She is always willing to be flexible with my rentals.
I could not say enough on how awesome of experience the entire process was from the rental process to getting to meet Danteh. Everything was great. Looking forward to my next trip.
I travelled to Washington DC for a vacation and had the pleasure of renting Thomas’s car! Thomas’s communication was top notch, pickup and drop off were easy and the car was clean and sufficient for our trip! I would definitely use Thomas again if I ever go back!
Ali was great with communication. Very friendly. I extended my trip another day and received Immediate response. Car ran Excellent ,it was Clean and Sunroof was a great asset to the car.
Thanks Shaun! The process of picking up and dropping off the car at BWI were straightforward, and there were gas stations right around the drop off point. This car was super fun to drive :)
Ok. So first off... woah! This car was amazing! Smooth ride, clean, and very convenient! Patrick was the icing on the cake. He was sooo very understanding, and nice. He extended the car to me and helped me more than he could understand! The communication was so awesome! Thanks so much! He is the best host ever! Will only rent from you from this day forward! Turo is the best app, and from my first ride experience... I will be back soon!!
Shaun was a great host. Worked with me to make my trip great. Love driving a manual again.
Car was very reliable and convenient to get to. I would rent again.
Overall great experience with Kenyon. I have been using Toro for a couple of years now and he has been by far the easiest work with I will definitely be renting again
Great renter! Easy pickup and return at BWI. No issues! Would rent from again for sure
Aaron was the best person to rent the car from I fee in love with that car it was great on gas and mileage. Aaron was a great guy to talk to and just be around. I will definitely rent from him again. He deserves 10 stars
Estelle’s made my first Turo experience great. She was right on time. Her Mini Cooper is in great condition and very clean.
My brother and I flew down to MD for the U15 & U17 Team USA NTDP and we wanted to rent something fun. Rob's mustang was the best choice on the list. Will definitely be contacting Rob again for out future trips
He was good with communication I was able to pick up the car early and return it early. Will definitely rent from him again
5 stars and very happy. He was excellent and the vehicle was all that was expected. Thank you and I would recommend to all my friends family etc.
