Laurie is such an amazing person. I personally never met her, but the whole transaction was such a smooth process. It was totally satisfactory. If I ever visit Houston again, I would definitely use Laurie for my car rental needs. It would be my pleasure to recommend Laurie to my friends and Families for their car rental in Houston.

Rental was super easy! Daniel was friendly and extremely flexible, delivering the car almost an hour before scheduled. Car had no more wear and tear than any other rental but was super comfortable and a great little commuter for our trip, will definitely rent again if we find our selves back in Houston

Daniel is an amazing host, the car was everything I need for a short trip, clean, comfortable and in excellent conditions, best choice rather that choosing a normal car-rental

My name is Vancleve Bonner, I had to come to Houston Texas to pick up my son Oliver Bonner and needed a affordable car. Dioni Verango reaches out to me and said consider certified Luxury Autos. We have luxury autos for a good price. I then went to the Instagram page and seen a selection of cars. Dioni recommended the 640I BMW. I said ok and decided to try it. Bruce Bray then reaches out to me as a rep, answered every question I had and brought the car to me on time, clean with great energy, and customer service. I recommend Certified Luxury Autos as the number one rental company in Houston Texas and Houston surrounding counties.

If you are looking to rent a vehicle while in Houston. I would highly recommend Sovanrithy’s Audi. Sovanrithy, was a great host. Communication between Sovanrithy and myself was clear, and prompt. The Audi was perfect. Great on gas mileage, a luxury style, with speed. Thanks Sovanrity.

Second time renting from Tree and this person is good at communication and finding you a right vehicle even if it’s short notice! Originally had booked a car but he called me right away to let me know the problem with that car and he put me in a different vehicle! Customer service was great, definitely recommend booking with Tree for car rental service!

Zoheb's car was everything we wanted. It was fast, clean, and comfortable. Zoheb was super easy to work with and even made some adjustments to make our return easier. Communication with Zoheb was great and he will be our go to guy for all of our trips to the Houston metro. We dropped the top and cruised down Seawall in Galveston. Our trip could not have been better. Thank you Zoheb!

Monique G. - March 20, 2020
I cannot explain how easy it was to rent thru the app and coordinate with Kelly! He was more than accommodating with any question, comment or concern I had about booking, changing a reservation, or really anything to be completely honest. Picked up at Kelly’s house, the transition was amazing. Car was A1. Clean as a whistle! Actually maintained constant contact with him as well, not because he asked me to, but because the car got so much attention everywhere I went! Thanks to Turo and Kelly, a lot of Houston knows how nice and well built a Q50s Red Sport is. 10/10 will use Turo again, and have already told Kelly when I come back down next year that I want the car again if he has it!
Jason F. - March 15, 2020
Payton was great to work with and his car was very clean! The Q50 was such a nice alternative for the price point. It was lux and sporty. We had a great time in Houston and will def rent from payton again! I highly recommend this car.

Jusy and Matthew were very accommodating through my trip in Houston! Jusy was not available to pick my mother and I up at the airport however sent her brother Matthew instead, he and I had a very thorough conversation and we didn’t start the trip until I dropped him off. Plus the 600 miles for free!! For a guy like me traveling around the bellaire area, it gave me a piece of mind knowing I wouldn’t have to worry. However I did not know the vehicle has a toll tag! I took the toll way and paid 5$ worth to get my friends in woodland but the next morning returning home, the tolls weren’t in play and I thought they were free. It wasn’t until my second to last day there that I had a tag so I got charged after my trip for it. Would highly recommend!

This car is stunningly beautiful and a head turner. I rented this AMG C63S (brand new) from Giuseppe for a business meeting and to visit family in the Houston area. Giuseppe had great communication and was very helpful with anything I needed. The car was a blast to rent and if I am in Houston again, I know what car I'm renting. I rent cars for work often (5-6 cars a month) and this was by far the best experience I have had with a rental. Thanks Giuseppe!

Diego was a very good turo-renter. He was entirely accommodating, when my flight time changed, and made changing my drop off time a BREEZE. He also made the pickup and drop off very easy. His vehicle is also VERY CLEAN. While most people would not call a Honda FIT “cool”, his car magically fit two large rolling bags and four backpacks (as well as four adults), easily. I would rebook with Diego at the drop of a hat.

Local Houston favorites

The fourth-biggest city in the US can get overwhelming in its sheer size, so take a deep breath, hop in a car, and get off the beaten path with these local Houston must-dos.

  • Chow down on some barbecue

  • When in Houston, eat as the Houstonians eat: good old Texas BBQ. Book a car on Turo, grab some napkins, and comb Houston for the best barbecue in town.

  • Go two stepping

  • Take in some good ol’ honky tonk at one of the many dance halls around town. You’ll hear authentic local music and maybe even get a dance lesson or two.

  • Walk Lower Westheimer

  • Packed with cool antique stores, restaurants, and bars, Lower Westheimer is a walkable anomaly in car-dependent Houston. Park the car, and wander wherever the wind takes you.
