Way better than a rental car

Rise and thrive in Cincinnati

Cincinnati exudes curiosity and continues to make a splash along the banks of the Ohio River. The Queen City of the West is known for its photo-worthy streets, famed BBQ and chili, and revitalized Over-the-Rhine neighborhood.

When you’re satisfied exploring the up-and-coming coffee bars, boho art cafes, mouth-watering restaurants, and microbreweries, take your Cincinnati rental car alternative out of town for even more fun and adventurous excursions.

Cincinnati favorites

Secretly bursting at the seams with rich local culture and a flourishing arts and brewery scene, Cincinnati’s trendy post-industrial vibe is capturing hearts everywhere.

Carew Tower

For eye-popping panoramic views of Queen City, the iconic Carew Tower looks over downtown Cincinnati with shops, restaurants, and an observation deck on the 49th story.

Findlay Market

Head toward Over-the-Rhine in your Cincinnati car rental alternative and enjoy a casual lunch, a scoop of Dojo Gelato, or a sip of craft beer after browsing the cute shops and stalls at Findlay Market.

King's Island

A short 25-minute drive from downtown Cincinnati, thrill-seekers will love spending a day at King’s Island. Ride the world’s longest wooden roller coaster and then try the inverted roller coaster, the Banshee.

Malcolm made the rental process very easy and smooth
Carrie D.- March 18, 2022
First things first, Malcom is highly professional. His customer service is the crème de la crème of customer service . Secondly, the drive on car was ultra smooth, gas prices are bananas right now and selecting this electric option was a no brainer , Malcom pointed us in the direction of a free charger in city and other *for a fee* locations but it’s really like 4 bucks to get back on the road . ID give Malcom 10 stars if I could. Thank you Malcolm !

Skip the car rental counter

Hit the road

Thanks to Cincinnati’s central location, it’s easy to visit neighboring urban areas or to explore the surrounding countryside, small towns, and abundant forests for a day trip or weekend getaway.

Way better than a rental car

Yellow Springs

Spoil yourself with rocky river canyons, dense forests, and crystal clear creeks in John Bryan State Park or Clifton Gorge State Nature Preserve, then refuel at the Clifton Mill, a classic American diner, just outside of Yellow Springs.

Pyramid Hill Sculpture Park

Pack some snacks and head to the Pyramid Hill Sculpture Park in your Cincinnati car rental alternative. Rain or shine, gain some creative inspiration or simply enjoy a relaxing day trip away from Queen City.

Big Bone Lick State Park

A quick half-hour drive from Cincinnati brings you to the historic and quiet Big Bone Lick State Park, with plenty of wildlife, flora, and history. Take your time and observe the protected bison on a day trip or turn your stay into a camping weekend.

Aaron is extremely informative and professional!!! I would most definitely rent from him again!! From the moment I picked up the vehicle, to the time I returned it, Aaron quickly responded to any and all questions, and made me feel comfortable in his vehicle. As for “Peggy” (the Tesla) there are no words to describe how phenomenal she is!! The features on that car is limitless!!! If you’re looking for sleek, modern and eye catching,,, PEGGY IS FOR YOU!

Aaron’s vehicle was great as always. Convenient pick up, car was charged and ready to go, trip went well, and drop off at the airport was super convenient. Aaron and his cars never disappoint when I travel to Cincy. Add the option for Tesla app access and it will make your experience that much easier, well worth it. Thanks Aaron!

Booked this car and it’s actually my favorite rental car. Def good on the tank and gets you where you need to go secure and safe. Whenever in town it’s a good car to pick up and drive for business or family related trips.

Adeen made it easy and had a back up plan when our schedule did not align with his. This was our first time using Turo, and it went smoothly. There was an electric glitch that made the car send out multiple false warnings (tire pressure gauge sensor, etc.) . I contacted Adeen and he responded IMMEDIATELY. He mentioned that everything was OK mechanically, but there was an electrical issue that he had thought was resolved. He mentioned that he would drop off a different car if we wanted, but we trusted him. The car worked great - from Cincinnati to NC and back. After our trip, Adeen had us meet him a few blocks away from the drop off at the Honda dealer to correct the problem. I highly recommend.

Jason was amazing! The car was fantastic to use for our trip to Michigan, to watch the Cincinnati Bengals win and are now heading to the Super Bowl. Once returning home, I arrived back to Jason 30 mins early and he was still available to meet with me. I would absolutely recommend and rent with Jason again.
