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

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.Book the perfect car
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.
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.
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.
Very hassle free and much more convenient than the rental counter. Very nice car.
Great experience, I will come back to Derick again , easy and smooth ride. No more rental companies but Turo and Derick .
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!
Skipping the car rental counter >>>> Eduardo seriously made my trip to a Houston a breeze! The car was ready and waiting for me, with clear instructions every single step of the day. Vehicle is in perfect condition and very nice! Would recommend this host and vehicle. I plan to rent from Eduardo again if needed.
Really wonderful car and experience. Highly recommend to anyone looking to rent an SUV in Houston.
Demetria’s vehicle was so nice and clean and really made my weekend special. Demetria was nice, professional and very accommodating. I highly recommend renting from her if you want a no stress experience
Great experience!! Will be looking up what Pye has for rent in the future. Very smooth experience! Way better than getting a rental car from the rental companies.
Ms Andrea was very accommodating and professional. The vehicle was clean and rode very well. This was my first Turo experience and I won’t be going back to the traditional rental companies any time soon.
Very accommodating, and response time was impeccable. Approved my trip extension and pick up time change. Over all enjoyed the vehicle and the sun with the roof top back. Will be renting again
Zeverick made the whole rental process extremely easy! The car was in great condition.
FoFo was amazing with his service and quick response to my last minute request to book his car. My flight got canceled and requested his car and Fofo was at the airport in 40 minutes. Thank you FOFo for saving me the hassle of dealing with car rental companies. Best host !!!
This was our first time renting through Turo & it was an amazing experience. Way better than renting from the bigger rental companies. Uriel was very informative. The car was cleaned & looked exactly like the photos.
I had a great experience w/ Turo and Brenton. I would definitely do it again. It is so much nicer than going through a car rental agency. Everything was smooth and hassle free. Brenton is the perfect host and his vehicle is immaculate.
Very nice vehicle, pickup was easier then typical rental locations they even gave us a rose when we picked up the vehicle. Vehicle was very clean (nearly brand new).
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!
Perfect host & perfect vehicle! Rav4 was impressively easy to drive, location was easy to find, and I even had had street parking to leave my own car. I was expecting hiccups and had none. Great rental. Thanks again, Deepak!
Elizabeth was very communicative and helpful! She made the entire rental process simple and provided adequate service. Would rent from her again
Ronald was an amazing host; he showed up early to accompany my pick-up time, offered to run through every feature of the vehicle, and was incredibly flexible with drop-off. His professionalism is unmatched, and I’ll definitely be renting from him again!
My trip in Houston was awesome! This Jeep made it even better. It rides like a champ. Racquel was a great host and very understanding when i to change the pick up time at the last minute. I’ll definitely rent this Jeep again.
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.
Amazingly nice car at unbelievable price. Excellent delivery/ pickup service. Would happily rent from this host again!
Great experience. Pickup from the airport was much nicer than the traditional rental companies. Additionally the car had a phone holder pre-mounted and cords to charge with.
United’s communication on this rental was excellent and beyond expectations especially since our flight was canceled due to weather hours before we were scheduled to return the car and we ended up needing it one more day. Far beyond my previous experiences with rental car companies for sure!!
Everything was great. Much less hassle than a rental car agency. Car was found as described. No issues whatsoever. I will use this owner whenever I get the opportunity.
Bryceton was very communicative throughout the whole rental process. Pick up and drop off at the airport was quick and efficient.
First time using Turo app and can’t believe how easy this was. Great car/host. Will definitely be using the app instead of shuttling to and from rental car locations.
Caitlin was a great host! She is a quick communicator and she made the rental process very easy. Great vehicle to drive!
Rental pickup process was quick and the return process was even quicker. Owner was friendly and the SUV was very clean
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
Great car! Wonderful price, and super friendly host! Very quick to respond, and made check-in/out a breeze! Would highly recommend. Will be using again in future trips to Houston
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.
I have booked with Ceasar multiple times and he is always exceeding expectations. The car was in great condition and the interior is spotless. You can tell that he is passionate about providing excellent service, which is hard to get from the large 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”
Turo was an amazing experience and so convenient. I loved everything about the rental process with Alexanderi. Thank you so much again.
I had a great experience through the entire rental process. The host (Murtaza) made it very easy to pickup and return the vehicle. Everything was explained and every question was answered. The car was awesome! What else can I say. I will definitely be a repeat customer for Murtaza.
This was the best service I’ve ever gotten through a rental company, I will be using this service again when I come back to Houston. Carlos was awesome, excellent Customer Service. He communicated correctly, everything was like and where he said it would be. Thank you again Carlos for this awesome experience With me being a first time user of Turo.
Very nice truck definitely will use Rj’s again if I come back to Houston thanks again for the last minute reservation
This car was great. Very comfortable, fun to drive, very clean. Pick up and drop off was simple. Nolan's communication was very clear and easy to follow his instructions. His price was very fair! I will definitely be looking for him again next time we're in Houston.
This was an amazing experience renting this jeep for a weekend in Houston. Communication was wonderful he responds within minutes, very flexible and accommodating and he make sure your receiving the best rental experience with him. Also I left personal belongings in his vehicle, he was very honest and was willing to mail them to my home state. Overall 20 stars out of 10 lol. So grateful for booking this jeep. Also the tag number is 222 lucky number. Your welcome
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!!
The overall experience was nothing short of amazing. The customer service from the start of rental to the end was great. Very family oriented and caring 100% recommend. Will always get my business in the Houston metro area.
honestly, this rental trip was one of the main highlights of my trip! the Airbnb host I had stole our shoes so that really drained our trip but the host for this rental was so amazing and helped out alot through our situation. Very understandable overall and I also LOVED the jeep! Book this rental asap you won’t regret it! drives great through houston traffic!!!
Very nice SUV. Drove very smoothly and very spacious. Car was clean inside and out. Marlon Walls communicated very well with me. I definitely recommend this rental if your in the Houston area.
Nia went above and beyond helping me out of a sticky situation. Her Jeep is reliable and a thrilling experience. I would HIGHLY recommend booking a reservation with Nia. Response time has always been amazing, and the next time I’m in Houston I know which person I’m coming to. THANK YOU!!
Seriously the best rental experience ever! I travel full time with work and Yolanda goes above and beyond! The Bronco was beautiful, clean and great on gas. Yolanda met me at the airport to hand deliver the truck and even mailed me the key I left on the ring! I will ONLY rent from her when I travel to Houston.
Whitney’s car was a great car for our travel plans. It was spacious and drove smoothly. Whitney communicated well throughout the rental process and I highly recommend her rental service.
The rental process went smoothly. Siukey’s vehicle was perfect for this weekend, very clean, comfortable drive, overall great! I will definitely book again! Thanks Siukey!
I am a returning customer for Murtaza, I rent both his Suburban and Wagoneer, and they are all clean, well equipped, and spacious. Murtaza is very responsive, he usually reply my messagespromptly. I will definitely recommend to rent his full size SUV if you need a family hauler.
Head north to Montgomery to catch FM 149, which shoots you through the Sam Houston Forest for decent twisties until you’re dropped into the swooping curves of FM 3090.
For views of the truly Texan wide-open range, head west in your Houston car rental alternative and take in the scenic rolling prairies that lead into the historic downtown Victoria.
Head south from Houston to take this scenic road all the way to the coast, or stop off at Brazos Bend State Park for a dose of wildlife and glassy lakes.
