I’ve rented from Tauhha a few times, the process is always smooth. The cars are always top tier. If you want luxury experience with easy pick up and drop off. Please rent with Tauhha! He’s my go-to when I’m visiting Houston.
Kierra and Andre made this of the best rentals experiences we have ever had. On top of this Nissan being one of the least expensive car rentals in the area, it was one of the newest cars available. Additionally Kierra and Andre delivered the car for free to the airport. That was a huge factor for us. Most Turo rentals charged $65 for delivery. They left the car with a full tank of gas and we drove the car for three full days around the city. It only cost about $7.50 in gas to return it. Awesome mileage. Do keep in mind though, they do ask you to clean the car before returning so it’s important to reserve a little extra free time on the tail end of your busy trip for gas and cleaning. It is free to do so with the barcode provided on the windshield for select car wash locations. It was super easy just a little different than we are used to! They made the exchange very simple and were incredibly kind in doing so. We will most certainly be renting from them in the future should we find ourselves back in Houston. Thank you so much Kierra and Andre!
I couldn’t thank the host enough for my first Turo experience. It was a great one! The host was awesome. Great communication. The host was there during pickup and drop off helped me through the things I need to do for my first Turo go smoothly. The car was clean with low mileage. The host also has many nice cars you can choose from for your next trip. I highly recommend and will definitely use the same host for my next rental in Houston. Thanks guys!
Half the cost of car rental companies but, without cruise control in this particular car. Worth the trade off. Great experience with the owner!
Daniel communicated greatly. The car was clean and drove amazing. If I do decide to return to Houston and need a rental I’ll definitely be booking again! Thank you for being apart of making my Houston trip a success!
Had a great trip with Ryan’s Model 3! The pickup and return were really easy and straightforward. I definitely have a Tesla in my future after this trip. I had to go from Houston, TX to Houma, LA for work, and even though there a much fewer superchargers in LA than TX, I didn’t have any issues on my trip. The Tesla Nav, gave insights to my battery usage, and let me know when and wear to stop, so I could safely make it to my destination. Stops at superchargers in LA took 20-30min (these were V2 superchargers, if V3’s had been available it would’ve been even faster), but the time flew while I was stretching my legs, using the bathroom, getting a bite to eat, or playing games on the cars massive touchscreen. Really great experience! If you haven’t driven a Tesla yet, I definitely recommend renting Ryan’s car to see what you’re missing!
Zalathiel was great to work with-he picked us up at the airport, and was flexible and accommodating when our trip was affected by the Houston ice storm. The car was in excellent condition, very comfortable, worked well, and even kept us warm when we lost power in our rental condo!
Ziya is literally the best! He goes above and beyond for his customers and does everything he can to ensure he provides an excellent vehicle and service. Highly recommend renting from ziya. He takes pride in his business and truly cares about providing the best car service he can. We paid the VERY reasonable delivery fee for ziya to meet us at the airport to pick us up and then when we were done with rental of his car, he met us to drop us off back at the airport. This was so much easier and quicker than dealing with traditional car rental companies and waiting in line and dealing with that hassle. Ziya was hassle free with his car rental experience and so accommodating with great communication. He was even kind enough to accommodate us needing to meet him to give him back the car an hour earlier than planned. Car was nice and sufficient for our week visit in Houston and ziya maintains his cars and knows them inside out. Definitely rent from Ziya! A++++ 10/10 5 stars!
Reyne was great! She made the pick up and drop of very easy. The car was gorgeous and very clean. I rent a car on Turo every year and this was the best experience yet!
Always a pleasure renting from Daniel! Very flexible and accommodating. Will always be my go-to person to rent a car from. Thank you so much!
George is very helpful. He can accommodate to your any need, his vehicles range from luxury to eco friendly. Everytime I visit Houston I always rent from him.
Wonderful... The car was in great shape. There was a winter storm in Houston and our flight kept getting canceled, Ayman extended our rental for 2 days for free, and checked on us everyday during the storm. Thanks a lot Ayman
Chonique was very helpful and accommodating when I used her car. She responds quickly to messages and her car is spotless. I liked that she gave us a bottle of water, masks and hand sanitizer. I used her car during the freeze in Texas and she extended the trip for the car without any problems. The car is also really good on gas. Thank you so much for making my first turo rental a breeze!
I rented this vehicle to decide if I want to buy a Tesla. The rental experience was perfect and the vehicle was perfect. The vehicle has full self driving and pretty much drove me all over Houston with little intervention by me. (You still have to be in control of the vehicle, turn on city streets, and take over if the vehicle is doing something you don't want it to!!!) Josh was available by text/phone to answer questions about the vehicle. He was on time for pickup and drop off.
George is amazing! Professional, punctual and very nice. This was my first Turo experience and he made it very easy and simple. If I am ever back in the Houston area I will be looking for a rental from George. Thank you again George!
If you are needing a premium luxury vehicle Abdullah is your guy! What made my trip so amazing however wasn't just the car but the host! Abdullah was so communicative and helpful throughout the trip however never overbearing. If I am ever in need or just wanting something different the is officially "my guy". Abdullah you are greatly appreciated.
One of the best experiences ever on Turo. Carlos was very kind, responsive and flexible. I would definitely recommend him for any time you are in Houston.
The owners are amazing to deal with ! Very polite very understanding and easy to work with on this rental! The vehicle ran great and the ride was smooth! I highly recommend this rental for any trip! Thank you guys for an amazing experience!
If you are ever in Houston Brent car is a must!! It’s clean , fast and drives so smooth!! Brent is an excellent host 5STARS!!
Awesome car to drive around Houston! Super easy pick up and drop off. Alex was really nice. Would definitely rent again!
This was the best Turo rental I've ever had. The car worked exactly like it should. Before I arrived he had the car washed, ready, and photos were taken for my check in. He cared about how my experience was. Awesome communication. Thank you I will return.
Absolute best car rental experience I have ever had! No shuttles, lines or hassle. The car was at the terminal and in excellent condition. I needed help finding it when I first arrived and Braydon answered and walked me through it immediately. Return was just as easy. I am telling all of my friends and family about this service. Thank you again Braydon. You made my trip flawless!
Car did what it was supposed to do and the pick up place was convenient. Car rental price point was great too!
Ziya was prompt and kept in contact with us The car ran well and it was much easier than waiting in line as the car rental Thank you
Truly One of the best car rental experiences. Daniel is very flexible and helpful & highly recommended.
Yassir was very helpful during my first Turo experience, guiding me through everything and also very accommodating as I needed to make some changes to the trip. I would certainly rent his car again. Car, service, and communication were great.
Easiest seamless rental yet! Tauhha was extremely professional and accommodating. His pick up and drop off process is seamless, car was clean, clear and ready to go. 5 stars would rent again!
Haven this car for my days of stay here in Houston was great. Very affordable. Definitely recomendable... A must do it again in the future, Thanx Again.
The was my first time renting on Turo! But it won’t be my last . I’ll most definitely always rent from Mr.George very helpful nice & understanding. ❤️ great energy nice cars ✅
Daniels car was the perfect car to have in houston! Incredible service Daniel provided at picking up and returning the vehicle!
Keysi was super sweet and accommodating. The car is perfect to zip around houston and is amazing on gas.
extended my trip due to the snow in houston & Giorgio was GREAT. fast replying & very understanding of the situation.
Andre and Kierra were wonderful. The car was clean and ran perfectly. There was a ton of trunk space to fit all of our stuff:) We happened to be in Texas during the storm and had to end our trip early and abruptly and they went out of their way to meet us at the airport early. We couldn’t have asked for a better pick up and drop off experience. I would definitely rent from them again!
Professional, punctual, understanding, 10/10 The Audi is such a smooth luxurious car perfect for Houston interstates
George was very helpful throughout the rental process! My car was giving me a lot of trouble, so I had to get a rental until it could be fixed, and he met me and waited patiently for me to arrive, because my car kept stopping while on the way to pick up the rental car. What a Great guy! Thanks for everything, I will definitely rent from him again!!!
Cameron made the trip really enjoyable! He loves his car and takes great care of it, and I’m grateful for the opportunity to rent it for a weekend. You won’t be disappointed if you’re looking for a fun car for the weekend!
I had this little Nissan for a week. Regarding this particular car, it was clean and it was in the perfect working condition, which is important when you are driving a rental car, to feel confident in it. The model itself, nothing special, but it has a great fuel economy, 30+ mpg no matter what you do with it. With good reflexes, you can still win every traffic light. :D
Amazing!!! Amazing car amazing owner perfect rental 10 stars would be given if I could.
The car was great. Clean inside and out. Drove extremely well and Araib was helpful throughout the rental period. Highly recommend.
Monte’s Audi A5 Was Awesome During My Time In Houston. I Totally Recommend Whenever Houston. Monte Was A Great Host He Accommodated All Of My Needs During My Short Stay. I’ll Rate My Trip ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Alex was a fantastic host. We were stuck in the Houston ice storm and he was extremely flexible with the booking and pickup location. Car was in excellent condition!
Renting the car was a very smooth process. Junaid was awesome and very easy going. The hand offs was easy. Car drove extra smooth this is the best way to rent a car.
My guy went above and beyond and didn’t have to! If I had to compare what it’s like renting from Tim, (it’s like dealing with a car rental place just with FAR less hassle—his professionalism was A+). And the encounter I had with him went as smooth and seamless as anyone on here could possibly think of. I’d definitely rent from Tim again if I ever needed to. And lastly, “this car has more bells and whistles than most German luxury cars.” - 😎
Rami waz amazing. Really good guy and honest and so accommodating. I would rent a car from him again for sure.
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
This car is highly underrated!!! I had one of the best experiences renting this car from my guy Tauhha 💯 it was everything I wanted as far as my driving experience in the city of Houston for the short amount of time I was there!!! Most definitely will be renting this same car again the next time it’s available because everybody loves to see me in it 😋
Abhi’s BMW is the way to go if you’re traveling in Texas. The suspension makes this car a standout with comfort beyond belief, and also a great sound system. Driving in Eco mode means you can travel for days without burning hardly any gas, and other driving modes are comfortable too. We will rent this car next trip to Houston!
Amazing experience!! Such a nice gentleman! Papa Rentals is your guy!!!!! ❤️
The car was an amazing experience! I rented the car as a surprise for my boyfriends birthday for the day and the whole experience was perfect. Sant was incredibly helpful and fast in responding. I would highly recommend!
Wonderful experience! Chonique is a great host! The car gets amazing gas mileage and is in excellent condition. Chonique was willing to came earlier which made the whole trip much smoother. Thank you very much!
Kirby was great to deal with, he answered all our questions and made it so enjoyable!! The slingshot was absolutely amazing, we will definitely be renting again from him!!
The interior of the car wasn’t clean or sanitized, but I do that first with every car so it wasn’t a huge deal. We had a bit of a snafoo with the initial pickup so I ended up getting there late but Brian was as supportive as possible through the process. Thanks Brian!
Enjoyed the rental 👍👌 Naveen was really nice, friendly, and helpful. Will be renting another vehicle from him soon
The best experience I have ever had renting a vehicle. Abdul is very nice and answers every question you have. I highly recommend him.
Punctual, polite and down to business. Car is clean and fun to drive. Great experience: would rent again.
Zohrin is very nice and reasonable. I had a very easy check in process! Great trip!!! Just a note for future renters there is a mandatory $15 cleaning fee imposed due to the stringent cleaning requirements related to Covid-19.
Walid is a great host , very flexible , communication great ! Easy pick up and drop off . car is great , good on gas ! Will rent again
George is a awesome host! The car was fantastic definitely renting again when it’s a bit warmer outside!
Great experience pick up was easy host had the car ready and cleaned during my trip I was stuck in a snow storm and host still was willing to work with me do to icy rode conditions I will tell anyone to book with this guy 10 star plus
It was a pleasure renting again with Junaid. Very easy communication and definitely a beautiful car. Would definitely recommend.
Junaid was a great host! The contactless delivery/drop off was a great plus. He was very nice, helpful, and available whenever I had questions. His car drove smooth too. If I’m ever back in HOU I’ll definitely consider renting from him again.
I have to say this was the most easy going rentals ever. With the crazy storm this guy was calm by and chill and worked with me.
Fun and clean car that gets like a million miles per gallon! Had to figure out the shifter for a few seconds and then it was all good. Great experience! Would totally rent this car again.
EVERYTHING ABOUT THE RENTAL WAS AMAZING!!!! THIS WILL BE THE ONLY PLACE I RENT FROM!
This was my first time using Turo. Wasn't sure how it would all go. George made my first experience easy and comfortable. The car was great. Freshly cleaned and full of gas. I will be using Turo again. Definitely booking one of his cars again because the customer service was top notch. Thank you!
The car was amazing, and the service provided by Tauhha was even better. On my next trip to Houston I will DEFINITELY be booking another one of his cars and I recommend anyone else traveling to Houston to do so as well. 10/10
Hands down the best Turo experience I’ve had. Adrian was such a great host. His car was in great condition too. Clean and well maintained. Took a trip out of state with his Honda, it made for a very pleasant ride. If you’re looking for that A+ customer service he’s the guy to rent from. Thank you Adrian for helping make our vacation a great one.
Pick Up & Drop off was 10/10 .. easy.. plus communication was 100% if I needed anything or questions asked .. Car was very clean plus there’s a lot of trunk space .. So for my 1st Turo rental it went smoothly Houston was A1(Great)
This trip was awesome and had no problems with the vehicle would definitely rent again
Awesome renter. Very friendly, gave great explanation of the car. Not too uptight about a very nice vehicle. I def recommend. Would rent again. 5 stars
Car was beautiful, well kept and sounds amazing. Sant is very polite, responsive and makes it a great experience. Will definitely be renting again
I've never had a TURO experience like this... constant communication, even helped us get back to the airport. Wish I could give more stars!!! Was simply a blessing...will be using every time I fly into Houston.
I had an amazing experience renting with Anniesha! Customer service was perfect and she answered right away when I needed help or had any questions. The car drove smoothly and the panoramic sunroof made the experience even better. I will definitely book this car again. Thank you for the great experience and awesome customer service!
