I always book with EZ - the cars are well taken care of and the response time is amazing. I highly recommend EZ!
Elina was absolutely phenomenal! The car was in immaculate condition, the pickup and drop off at the airport was SO convenient and easy. She is a wonderful person and she goes out of her way to make sure you are happy with your rental! Rest assured anytime I come to Chicago I’ll be renting from her! Do yourself a huge favor and rent from her, you won’t be disappointed. Thank you, Elina!
Great experience with Eric and his Honda Insight! Eric's communication left nothing to be desired and the car rental part of our trip was very convenient! Highly recommend.
Awesome car, awesome owner, all super smooth and fun ! Lots of fun to drive in a road trip. Recommend to anyone.
There were a couple of hiccups during this rental but Christian was great about trying his best to make things right, would definitely do business with again! Most thankful he didn't cancel my husband's anniversary surprise.
Alena was very helpful with pickup and drop off, the car was great, economical and ran well. Great service all round!
Mohammad was a fantastic host! Kept up with our flight to make sure he got there at the perfect time and was very cool! I highly recommend going through Mohammad!
We had an amazing trip that’s to Elina. Very helpful and replies quick to any questions we had. We will definitely be renting from her every time we are in Chicago. Thank you again! 😁
Michael was great to work with, helped me find the car when I got most and the car was great
She was very understanding of my tardiness and the vehicle was clean and easy to drive
This car drives really well and Isaac made everything super easy with the pick-up and drop-off! He made it so I knew exactly where to find the car and was ready to unlock it right away—I didn’t have to wait around for anything. Definitely would recommend!
THANK YOU so much, Rodney and Tessa! You helped us out so much. We would definitely return--fabulous, fabulous service.
Justyna was right on time, available via phone and text, and delivered the Ghibli right where we stepped out of our the airport terminal. Solid service and fun ride!
Perfect perfect perfect every time never had a problem renting from him twice in the same week
It was a great trip! Mayra was open and honest, and I hope to be able to rent the car from her in the future!
Muhtadi was extremely awesome, his renting was a breeze. The i8 was amazing and made sure I was taken care of well. Really good dude , def be renting him again soon. The best in Chicago
Amazing! Have rented from William couple of times now and it has never missed a beat. Fast responses and very detailed in messages
Chris was easy to work with and flexible with my schedule. The car is in great shape and was a pleasure to ride. Will rent again!
Perfect communication and pick up return. Car was waiting for me at my hotel and I returned it there after 3 days. This guy does it right.
If there is one person on this app you can trust, it’s Tianshuang. He’s punctual, courteous, and is consistently available for communication. I will definitely be using him in the future. A++++
Car was great. Got us from point A to point B C and D comfortably. Nik was very flexible as well. Our favorite part of the car was the mix CDs we found. Had some JAMS on those. Thanks!
Christiaan was so easy to work with! Trip went great. Would definitely rent from Christiaan again!
Vehicle pick up and drop off was very easy. Very responsive. Vehicle was in great condition. Will rent from Michael again.
Rafael was very helpful. Both pick-up and return were handled well The Audi TT coupe was fun to drive. When I return to Chicago, I'll rent from Rafael. Steve Nichols
Customer service, the Car, and Communication were excellent. I highly recommend this TURO.
Clean car, great condition, easy pickup and return. Highly recommend!
Excellent car, and Matthew is great. Very convenient to pick up, appreciated the flexibility. Will hopefully be able to rent again when I’m back in Chicago.
Tommy hands down made my first turo experience the best ever. I will definitely be using him every time I’m in Chicago.
Eric was very communication and great instructions so made trip flawless. Thanks Eric and hope you have prosperous business
awesome host, will be booking with same guy everytime im in chicago
Was on time when I arrived and on time when I brought the car back. Was a joy to drive and will rent again when back in Chicago! Thank you!
We did a one week road trip and the car worked really well, we didn’t have any problems and the communication with Randi was always perfect. Highly recommended!
It was very easy and convenient to rent Eric’s peppy Passatt. His communication was clear and concise.
Ting was a pleasure to deal with. Communication was excellent and prompt. I had to change my vacation and head home early, but Ting accommodated my needs. This was my first Turo experience and if all the hosts are as good as him I'll keep using Turo!
Tianshuang was wonderfully accommodating from the start! Pickup and return was made easy, a huge plus! The car was a great, fun ride and was perfect to get me to and from my meeting. Thank you Tianshuang, you were fantastic and I know who I’ll look to rent from when I need to!
Derrick was super helpful to me since it was my first time using Turo, everything was smooth and great
The proximity to my residence made this super convenient. The two ladies were very helpful and delivered the auto clean and ready to go. I would definitely use there services again.
Needed a car to run around and go to church. Thanks Aiday! She is very friendly and professional.
My trip was amazing, Noe was very nice and flexible. I highly recommend booking with him!
Great host, thank you for letting me rent your car. great experience!
Excellent first time rental. I will definitely be renting again!
Matt’s a great host. There was a snafu with picking up the keys (not Matt’s fault), but he worked to resolve the situation quickly. I’d rent from him again. Thanks Matt!
Great host. On time, very easy on pick up and return. Highly recommend
Elina is simply the best! Start to finish. You will not find better on Turo!!!
Nathaniel lent us a great budget friendly car that was clean, ran perfectly, and best of all came with Nathaniel’s professionalism. This was my first time using Turo, so I had more than a few questions about the process - what to do in certain situations, etc. He was also quick to respond to messages prior to meeting, as well as had the patience and courtesy to answer all my first time Turo questions without rushing whatsoever. We made a drop off adjustment and that also ran smoothly. In a nutshell, I recommend renting from Nathaniel, and will do so myself the next time I need a car.
Super cool guy and Super cool car! I will definitely rent his car again.
Great with communication and also was flexible about drop off time, great host and great car.
Taek’s BMW is absolutely Amazing! It drives like a dream and is very clean.. His pick up and drop off process was really convenient and he is a very genuine guy personally... I’m definitely going to rent from him again my next visit and highly recommended you do as well
Jackie was the best - very flexible when our flight was delayed into the AM. A lesser provider would have canceled. I would definitely work with her in the future
My third time renting with F.S.R. and was again (as always) a great experience! Communication is always quick and pick up/ return details are easy. The cars are always spotless and in perfect condition; F.S.R.’s attention to detail on the car is top tier and much appreciated as a renter! The 2015 F80 M3 itself is a very fun car! Plenty of drive mode customization options make everything from scooting through rush hour to tearing up winding country roads a joy. It may take the uninitiated some time to acclimate to it’s touchy controls but once you warm up, that drivers seat is a throne on any road.
Paula was so flexible with pickup and drop off, and super communicative the entire trip. Car was clean, drove smoothly, and was exactly what we needed. Thanks!
Senai was a brilliant host. Very obliging and helpful with all our request. Car is as sweet as a nut, runs perfectly. Couldn't have asked for a better experience.
Michael was always quick to respond, and was happy to be flexible with my pick up and drop off times. His detailed messages made the pick up clear and easy. And the Prius ran perfectly during my entire trip. Thank you!!!
Great place to rent from. Awesome customer service and bad ass cars!
Overall best experience, super communicative owner, nothing negative about the experience. Only possible but understandable downside is getting out of the parking garage, super narrow but a good driver should have no issues, plus it’s Chicago so it’s common.
Hansel was super communicative, which made the process totally seamless. Such a fun car to cruise the highway on!
Super easy and convenient, it would be impossible to have a better first experience on Turo!
The car was great, clean and easy to access, and Michael made the process very clear. Heartily endorsed!
The car is as pictured, so if you are looking for a cheap way to get you from A to B, this is the car for you! Michael was SUPER responsive and pleasant.
Renee was great throughout the entire process! He would get 6 stars if I could add one!
Eric was a pleasure to work with and his car was great, would book again!
Awesome car to drive and Michelle was an excellent and accommodating host.
I loved this trip. Very understanding and always available for questions.
Perfect all around! Very flexible and easy communication. Awesome car!
Ari was a wonderful host very flexible and works with u i would definitely use him again in the future and refer him to others. Ari u are awesome!!!!!👍🏾
Tim is just a great guy to work with. The car was clean and in perfect working order. Answered questions quick too. Just a dag good experience over all.
As a first time Turo User, I couldn’t be more elated with my experience. I was really quite nervous. However Mr. Eric made the experience so smooth and less worrisome as he was communicative and checked-in! Thank you, thank you, THANK YOU!
Great renters, easy process, and very helpful. No issues returning early due to weather issues. Thank you for the rental. Would rent again!
I love this car! Smooth riding and very nice drop top. Took it cruising down lake shore drive. And Lerii was very nice!
Garrett is AWESOME! One of the nicest most personable Turo experiences to date. Do yourself a favor and rent from Garrett!
John was great. I flew in for a business trip and forgot my phone at home. I was only able to communicate with my lap top. John was very understanding and he had the best pick up and drop off locations. Detailed and prompt. I hope I get the chance to rent from John again.
I will say that I’m a big car guy and I want to experience as many cool and unique cars as possible and I’m glad I was able to to experience Matt’s corvette. This thing has the look and feel of a bat mobile. It’s a head turner especially with the top off. Along with his friendly conversation and convenient pick up of the car, Matt is a guy that I would recommend to anyone who is looking to have a memorable experience in a truly stunning car that is coming from a really down to guy.
So glad I was able to rent Greg’s Honda Accord!! My vehicle was in the shop for 3 weeks that was originally supposed to be a 3 day fix!! Had no problem extending the trip! Excellent communication skills🖤 and the sunroof made my trips cool and fun!!
The process was smooth and car held up well. Greg was very responsive and everything worked out nicely!
I see why he has five stars on turo! Matt is a super cool guy and his C7 was amazing, had the top off the whole time! Matt had the car sparkling like it was off the lot when I picked it up. Definitely will be renting again! I enjoyed my birthday! Thanks Matt!
Rafael was great I got the car for my bday & he made sure it was the best one yet the pick & up drop off went smooth also he communicates fast through the time I’ve had it also let me know how everything in the car works..Definitely a GREAT experience thanks again will be renting again very soon..!!!!
It was a pleasure trip with my family. This is my first time using Turo and I will say wen I do use it again if I see a car from Michael I would use it. If I saw this same car I would definitely try to use it again.
