The city center in downtown Houston

New frontiers in Houston

As one of the most diverse cities in the country, Houston has a lot to offer on many fronts, including fantastic food from every corner of the world, enthralling museums, and beautiful outdoor spaces where you can do everything — enjoy a movie or settle into an al fresco reading room.

Make your way through the largest city in Texas, and bask in the scenery of the nearby Gulf of Mexico and Texas Hill Country.

Houston favorites

Houston is chock full of well-designed green spaces and truly mind-blowing eats, so plan your day trips to properly sample these gems.

Buffalo Bayou Park

This 160-acre park is an impressive respite from the bustling city, and is a beautiful place to rent boats or bikes. You can also tour and see shows in the strange, awesome underground cistern.

Crawfish buffet

Crawfish is no joke in this Gulf-side town. You can’t go wrong with the classic table-top spread with corn cobs, but don’t miss the spicy Viet-Cajun style unique to Houston.

Space Center Houston

At the Space Center, you can not only see a large collection of moon rocks and spaceship exhibits, you can also tour NASA facilities where astronauts train.

Our previous car canceled a trip a couple hours before we had to leave out of town, but thankfully, we found a car w/ Matt in such short notice. Highly recommend booking a car with Matt!

OMG! Jeffery provided outstanding, exceptional customer service throughout the entire process from booking to checking this Chevrolet Corvette 2021 (Stingray) back in. The price was very economical, too. I was so amazed that I left my wallet in the car and Jeffery met me expeditiously to return my belongings. This vehicle is definitely a catch! Without reservation, I highly recommend doing business with this great host and experiencing the ride! YOU WON"T REGRET IT!!!

Skip the car rental counter

Hit the road

Houston is huge and there’s no shortage of attractions and amusements to enjoy, but book a car on Turo and leave the busy city behind to hit the hills, the beach, and other awesome Texas cities.

Mercedes-AMG GT rental on Turo

Galveston

Only an hour out of the city, Galveston is the hot beach spot where locals revel in long seaside days with great BBQ, and even horseback riding.

Austin

Known for its rocking live music scene, it’s worth the three-hour drive to get your dose of Austin weird, more barbeque and bars, and some killer swimming holes.

Brazos Bend State Park

In less than an hour’s drive, you can be hiking or biking in nature at this impressive state park. It’s also home to an observatory where you can stargaze on clear nights.

This was my first dealings with Turo and Victoria made this experience easy-going! Her Lexus SUV was in perfect condition and had a smooth ride! The hostess was accessible and even granted me an extension on short notice! The price point was excellent as well! Much cheaper than the commercial rental companies for this type of luxury vehicle! I will be using this site and this hostess again! Thanks so much!

We had an unexpected death in the family, and needed a car in Houston at the very last minute. None of the Rental companies had any cars due to the Houston Rodeo was in town. We found Dimma's Nissan Rogue and could not have been happier. She was very nice to me, as a first time Turo user. Her instructions were clear, complete and correct. We will look her up next summer when we return to Houston for fun!

I rented Cara’s truck for a friend’s graduation trip in Houston. The vehicle was extremely comfortable and served all our needs while we were there, plus it was a great price! We would have been paying double with a rental company. Cara gave me excellent care, and she was very helpful with all of my questions. I would definitely rent from her again if I’m in Houston.

Rickae is just fantastic. Very professional, courteous, and always on time, (both arrival and departure). I was very impressed with her service, not to talk about an extremely clean car and couple of bottles of water. What more can you ask for in a rental. I had discussed my arrival itinerary and expressed concern about not being able to make it to my event on time, being that this was my first ever trip to Houston and I sure did not know my way around the town. She assured me that, there was no need to worry and backed up her words with spot on delivery. I got to my event a good 15 minutes before start and she met me at the Airport departure terminal exactly the agreed time, 6pm, that is. You can always count on Rickae. She is reliable and her Acura MDX was a fun fun ride throughout my stay in Houston. Thank you so much Rickae !! You are definitely the best !!!!! Regards Brian

Isreal was great and the car was even better! We had to come to Houston at the last minute for a funeral and he met us at the airport and was flexible when we were leaving. He is an awesome host! The car was awesome as well, the perfect stylish state-of-the-art SUV for our trip. It comfortably held my family of 6 plus cargo! The car is so automated it was doing things before I even thought of them! Amazing! This was my first time using Turo and I am very happy with it so far. Much less hassle than regular car rental companies.

Very easy process from the beginning till the end. Would love to have the opportunity to repeat rental process in the future. Highly recommend for anyone who wants a vehicle with a bird eye view on the road. All my friends were impressed with this 2018 Jeep Wrangler. Very grateful for owner of rental to drop me off in the right terminal, I would have missed my plan(made it by 10min) had it not been for the nice gesture of driving me to the right terminal rather telling me “catch the train or figure it out”

Carlos, was great and very responsive!! He notified me in advance of some damage caused by the prior renters to ensure I was okay with still renting his vehicle. Which I was, it was no big deal! Once at the airport I realized I left my baby’s diaper bag in the car after I had already locked it and he responded right away and remote unlocked it for me, mind you it was 6 am! I will definitely recommend using Carlos for your next trip to Houston and I’d definitely rent with him again! Thanks Carlos!!
