I will rent from Jesus EVERY time I’m in Chicago! I have to admit, I was a little hesitant to try Turo, but I love Air BnB, and this is like Air BnB for cars! So glad I tried it. Just like Air BnB, TRUST THE REVIEWS. I chose Jesus because his reviews were so outstanding, and they did not disappoint. He was kind, courteous, helpful, accommodating, and had excellent communication, which is such an asset when you’re in a new city. If you’re looking at other renters, STOP. THIS IS YOUR GUY.

Jesse was great! We accidentally booked a car starting a day later than we meant to, and Jesse was super flexible. He got us in another car that and let us keep that car for the whole trip rather than making us switch to the car we originally reserved. I would definitely get a car from him again.

There is a reason Justin has so many great reviews, he made my first experience with Turo convenient and painless. He was great with his communication throughout the entire trip. He will definitely be my go-to person any time I need to rent a car in Chicago.

Will has great car. I always wanted to drive one. This Turo gave me the oppertunity. In the past I would use the major car rental companies and it always turned into a hassle one way or the other. “Will” took care of that also while juggling a couple of unforscene problems. When you rent a car from “Will” he has a good support system so it’s not just him , that’s why I definitely am going to use him in the future.

I am so appreciate of the host being flexible and the car being reliable. Will definitely recommend them to anyone looking to rent a car!

The experience was as good or better than the car rental facility in every way. Faster, more convenient, less stress, And cheaper too! The airport pickup and drop off was an awesome service I hope Dmitriv can continue to offer. Vehicle (Mazda 2) was great - clean and efficient. 4.99/5 - if there was an aux cable and 12V-USB charger id give a 5.00 ;)

I was looking for a rental during my 3 day stay in Chicago. Steven has a wide collection of cars to choose from at extremely reasonable prices. Pickup and drop off were simple and the car was squeaky clean. Note: Pickup is in Northbrook even if you indicate ORD as the delivery location so you’ll need to Uber/Lyft/taxi to get there.

Christiann was the second person I’ve rented from with this service and absolutely one of the best. The car is very well kept—especially for being 10 years old. I appreciated the economical side of it as I fly into Chicago but live in Milwaukee. Cost only $25 for a weekend trip and to fill up—35 MPG in sport mode is awesome. I was a few minutes late for my return but Christiann was kind and accommodating for that. Was very easy to arrange an Uber to and from the airport—I’ll choose Christiann over Hertz or Enterprise every time.

Tianshuang is a super example of the best of Turo. He has a great selection of cars, great prices and great service, and he runs his business well. The other people I met who were renting from him had similar stories to tell of how he did better for them than anyone else. Turo is about cars, but it is about freedom and greater options and opportunity. Turo is about the democratization of car rental. Renting from Tianshuang was a great small business and freedom experience. When I return to Chicago I absolutely will be using Turo, and Tianshuang again.
Richard G. - October 17, 2019

Renting this car was absolutely great! I will probably never rent a car the traditional way ever again.

Adisa was on time and answered all questions within minutes or seconds. I will definitely book this car again if available in the Chicago area. This was my first Turo trip and Adisa explained everything perfectly. I don’t think I ever want to rent a car from a rental company again. Adisa made this service awesome.

John made this trip more than amazing! Firstly, I didn't want to deal with the rental car fiasco with a late flight and decided to rent John's beautiful Camry. It was awesome! Hybrid and fuel efficient. It was sparkling clean and he arranged a remote pickup since I touch down very late. His communication was impeccable and provided me exceeding customer service. I couldn't of asked for a better experience with John. I will rent his vehicle on the next business trip to Chicago!! Thank you again John.
Nicole K. - February 11, 2020

Wow...Thank you!! This was such an outstanding and easy experience, which I really appreciate! Honestly, I was stressed out prior to connecting with Marvin due to an unrelated incident (I hope he didn't notice). He was so great and really easy going, which calmed me down. Not the reason I booked the car, but, honestly, much appreciated! Other bonuses: The gas mileage on his car cannot be beaten! I drove 6 hours (round trip) and used only a half-tank of gas! Living in Chicago, where the price of gas is high, one appreciates a car with excellent gas mileage. It also had an umbrella, snow removal tools, and a phone charger just in case one needed one or all of them. Very, very thoughtful. Marvin is such an amazing person and is so easy to work with! He treats you like a human being, which goes such a long way. Stepping out of third-person writing: Thank you so much, Marvin! I look forward to connecting with you again!

Tianshuang‘s 7 series is the definition of perfect for Turo trip. This car is amazing. The moment you start it you immediately feel the elegant of the luxury BMW. Head up display, M sport packages etc really make me feel like Tom Cruise of the mission impossible. The flat Matte black paint is beautifully unreal!! Draw a lot of attention when we get to the club. Tianshuang is amazing! He is super flexible and a clear and responsive communicator. Renting from him is really hustle free. I will only rent from him when I came to Chicago.
ZEHUA W. - October 27, 2018

I was a little skeptical about driving a Mercedes for that cheap price. I was thinking either the car wouldn’t be good or it’s a scam. But honestly, Steve is an amazing gentleman to do business with. I still can’t believe I drove such a beautiful vehicle for that price. Steve over communicated to get me up to speed on schedule and also made sure everything was going well while I had the vehicle. This is my first trip with Turo and Steve has really given me a very good first impression. Thank you Steve for all your help. I’ll make sure to find you whenever I come to Chicago. I highly recommend Steve to everyone who wants to enjoy riding in a beautiful luxury car for less.

My man Matt coming in clutch again with the Corvette. Second time I take a day trip out from Boston to Chicago this month, this time celebrating my wife’s birthday. Great service like before and the car was immaculate. I wont be back to Chicago again for a while but if I do go back I have no reason to go to a rental place. I will absolutely recommend Matt to all my family and friends if they are ever around town and need to rent a car.

This car rental went so smooth. The car was exactly what I expected which was great. I can’t say enough about Eric and his help to make this rental great. He gives good detailed instructions on pickup and return, he was accessible for any questions and was flexible when I needed to extend my stay. This was my first experience using TURO and Eric made it a really good one.

Tianshuang was great! This was my first turo rental and it was easier than I expected. It's nice to get picked up and taken to his warehouse so that you can avoid being the one who is driving in the airport traffic. The car was clean, he explained everything, and responded quickly with any questions we have. If I come back to Chicago I will definitely rent a car through him again.
Tammy S. - September 29, 2019

Eric was a phenomenal host...he worked with me to do pickup and drop off at 2 different airports, he accomodated my needs at the last minute...and when I hit a major snag during my rental period due to Chicago's new parking signs, Eric went above and beyond to help me out of it...I would highly recommend him and any of his cars to anyone...THANK YOU AGAIN FOR BEING SO AWESOME ERIC!!!

Incredible service! The on-site manager in Chicago (Tianshuang) is very professional. Correspondence was always immediate and the car was in great shape all around. He was very punctual and he made it very convenient for us. On arrival and departure in Chicago, we contacted him and he came to pick us up immediately. He is a true professional with incredible service skills and we can highly recommend him! I will definitely book a car with him the next time I'm in Chicago.

Brian is a champ! As a first time user he made the process go so smoothly. Very clear and open line of communication and really went above and beyond to accommodate to my requests. He is very genuine! Everything he says is with a smile and consideration of your needs. There are quite a few options of cars to rent on Turo, but I had such a pleasant experience with Brian that I’m most likely going to book with him again..and again. The car came clean, sturdy, and with a full tank. I am super pleased with the experience and would truly recommend anyone his way. Happy Renting!

Thank you so much for making my trip that started off as a disaster with flight delays, well worth while! I really appreciate your help. This has been by far my most pleasant rental experience. That says a whole lot being an Army veteran and still living life on the go. People like Shalom really make the world a better place.

My first time using Turo and Christopher made the experience just what I needed to ditch the standard rental car companies. To start with his model S is beautiful and like stated is extremely fast. He was flexible with our delayed flight and the car was easy to pick up at the airport. He was willing to give us pointers with the car if needed and has fantastic customer service. After our trip we dropped the car off at the parking garage convenient to our departure terminal and he took care of it from there. Pick up and drop off was way easier than a standard rental car return. Thanks again for a wonderful experience and if we are back in Chicago I will be using you again.

Steve is a good businessman and a great guy. Renting a vehicle from him is better than any rental service, the pure essence of luxury just corses through you when riding in one of his BMW or Mercedes models. Will only rent from him when in Chicago!

Cristian was so far my best Turo host yet, and I’ve touro’d about 100 cars. The car was clean, and an excellent value. His pickup and drop-off charge was a great value, and he worked around my constantly changing schedule to accommodate me. He even offered to deliver the car with personalized items my wife and I might want from the store upon our arrival. I won’t rent a car from anyone else in Chicago without making sure his cars aren’t already booked first.

Local Chicago favorites

Millennium Park and Michigan Avenue aren’t without their charms, but try booking a car and getting off the beaten path for your next Windy City weekend.

  • Grinders & deep dish

  • The great debate over the best Chicago-style pizza soldiers on, but Giordano’s, Lou Malnati’s, and The Art of Pizza are perennial favorites. Also, notably, the Chicago Diner is one of the best vegan eateries in the country.

  • Chicago Jazz, Baby

  • Louis Armstrong built his reputation in the Windy City, so Chicago is a hotbed of unique and historic jazz venues. Drive your Turo car over to The Green Mill or Jazz Showcase.

  • Wrigley Field

  • While not quite off the beaten path, Wrigley Field is a must for any baseball fan. Built in 1914, it’s the second oldest stadium in the country (after Fenway Park in Boston).
