Just across the border from Georgia, but with a sandy coastline along the Atlantic, Jacksonville is the convergence of quintessential Florida beach town and proper Southern city. The city’s many islands, rivers, and beaches mean there’s more beauty than one has time to sit around and sigh over.
But should beach life not sustain you for days on end, the San Marcos neighborhood has an excellent theater, and there are a number of wild animal experiences in town. So grab the keys to a Jacksonville airport car rental alternative and start crossing some bridges.
Cruise over to the string of glorious beaches just east of downtown, and stop in at these well-known Jacksonville gems.
Jacksonville is not short on beaches, but this island park is hard to beat. Head over to where the Atlantic washes up on pristine shores and otters traverse the salt marsh.
While the extensive art collection at the Cummer is legit, the museum’s art education and community events in the manicured 2.5 acre gardens make it super fun and accessible.
Home of the PGA Golf Tour and Player’s Championship, this groomed, upscale resort area is one of the best places to golf in the country, and the rolling dunes on the beach aren’t too shabby either.
An hour south in your Jacksonville car rental alternative gets you to the red tiled roofs and elaborate fountains leftover from the city’s founding in 1566 by the Spanish. The Ancient City remains a delight to explore.
Dust off your Jacksonville car rental alternative for the quick jaunt north to this barrier island, where the beaches are swept with white quartz sand and you’ll find the oldest bar in Florida.
This is the ultimate swimming hole. Pack your Jacksonville car rental alternative with inflatable tubes and hit this series of nine sparkling blue springs, where even manatees come to splash around.
Abuzar was great from the beginning of my trip to the end, he was quick to reply and quick to accept any of my requests. I will definitely always count on Abuzar if I need to rent a car in Jacksonville!
An absolute dream to drive. You will not be disappointed. Truly a wonderful combination between coupe and sedan, with refined power. The pickup and drop off is simple and convenient. Alvin is the consummate host for Jacksonville luxury cars!
Alvin’s A7 was a absolute delight to drive ! If you ever need to rent a car in the future Alvin’s the man. He has a large inventory of premo cars that you just can’t rent anywhere else for the price. They are clean and in incredible shape . I will never use a Hertz again !
The car was super clean and nice! Gianina always responded quickly and made it easy for us! This was our first time using Turo and we loved it! Much better than using a normal car rental!
URGENT To all potential Turo Renters: If you are looking to rent a car in the Jacksonville area, look no further than Alvin’s fleet of cars! Please do not rent anywhere else. Whether that be any of the big rent a car companies or other turo hosts, you will not be disappointed in Alvin’s cars and service. He is absolutely the go to person in this area. No other host in Jacksonville will treat you with dignity, respect, and warm hospitality. His cars and service are 1 million times better than what you will ever experience renting from Enterprise, Avis, Hertz, etc. None of them will ever come close to the cars he has and the superb personal customer service you will have with Alvin. When you rent with Alvin, not only will you get a car that is absolutely spotless clean, well maintained, and detailed inside out, you will experience unbelievable response times and over the top friendly customer service. He literally will respond to any questions or messages within a few seconds and he will always make you feel special and like you’re just borrowing your dad’s car. That’s how great a host Alvin is and there’s a reason why he is by far the number one host in Jacksonville and on Turo period and he consistently has hundreds of all five star reviews on all his cars. You will be blown away and he will exceed your expectations when you rent from him. This is not just lip service. This is actual real life experience. I am so glad Turo gives me this platform to rent from excellent hosts like Alvin instead of having to deal with generic boring choices of cars at the big rent a car companies that make you wait in long lines, sign alot of paperwork, can never guarantee what wcar they can give you, give you cars that are still dirty and untidy, and on top of that provide poor customer service. To them, you are just a number, with Alvin, you are part of his family. I will never ever go back to renting anywhere else. Thank you Alvin for being there for me. You have won a lifetime customer in me and I will let the whole USA know about it.
Great vacation. Had a blast taking a girls trip down the coast of Florida. Pamela was gracious enough to let us rent her car which made the trip more enjoyable. Driving with the top down on A1A on a beautiful sunny day...what more could you ask for 😊 Pamela is super nice and easy to work with. Highly recommend!
It is always the best experience to rent from you Mr. Alvin with the best cars and the best prices, you just can’t go wrong! I have rented from you many times and I look forward to the next one my Friend!
My trip was wonderful. It was so easy setting up everything with Alvin. The car drives like a dream and Alvin was quick to answer any questions I had. I would definitely recommend this rental.
Alvin is aces... great car and even better customer service, good to know I have my care rentals sorted out in the future Thanks Alvin👊🏻
Priscila is a great host and I would choose her car again when coming to Jacksonville. Thank-you
Alvin was very informative about the vehicle. Very clean, sporty and had a lot of compliments everywhere me and my husband went. Also we loved the car so much we extended the rental.
Priscilla is fantastic. Very easy and flexible. Additionally she is very responsive and is great to deal with. Car is clean, runs great, and is very fuel efficient. Certainly will rent again! Thanks Priscilla for the hospitable experience.
You won’t find a better host. Alvin is always great to rent from with a good selection of cars. Easy to work with and even communicates at 3am! Five stars isn’t enough.
10/10 Car was amazing. Definitely plan on renting again in the near future. The best on turo!
The best experience I’ve had with a independent rental company. And the host was very understanding and affordable
Eugene is cool. Car was great. Maybe I'll never rent a car the old way again. Great experience all the way around.
This was my second time renting from Alvin. He makes the renting pick up and return so simple- so you can enjoy the car you rented. Best all star host for a reason. I would definitely recommend anyone renting from him, great deals compared to any other luxury car rental out there! Always a please renting and hope to rent another one soon!
My trip was awesome thanks to u my brother much love I had the best time ever he has the best deals on a rental tell friends and family about him very great with communication to helping your needs thanks again my brother
As, always. Alvin is a fare guy and a great person .. I feel he is the best to rent from in Jax fl.. So please hit him up ..
Easy and seamless interaction, the car was awesome and Alvin was super attentive, involved, and quick to respond to any questions or concerns. Would not hesitate to rent from him again!

I absolutely love renting with Abuzar. He is the best and is extremely helpful and communicative. He works with and is very accommodating in case of emergency. Thus far he is my favorite!
Andre's car is a blast to drive, has all the bells and whistles. Smooth, quick and decent on gas. Sharp looking, would definitely rent it again from Andre, especially since he made the delivery and drop-off so easy.
As the third time I rent with Alvin, you can expect nothing but perfection. Beautiful clean car and a professionalism that will make you want to come back for sure. 11/10.
The car was absolutely gorgeous and so much fun to drive! It was worth every penny! Adam was wonderful and so friendly! He responded right away to all my messages and questions throughout the weekend! This was one of the most fun things I've ever done! I 100% recommend renting with Adam!

If you’re looking for quality cars from a quality host then Alvin is THE option for you. As a returning customer the rental experience with Alvin is always pleasant. The host Alvin is very cooperative and responsive, and the rides are kept in pristine condition which makes for a very enjoyable driving experience. Without hesitation book your next reservation with Alvin and you too can enjoy the best Turo has to offer.
This is the second time I’ve rented from Alvin and this experience was just as pleasant as the first. The car was top notch as was the service. Thanks again!
Highlight of my trip! Very clean, super fast, definitely worth it. The host James was very friendly and flexible with my trip. I very highly recommend renting from him!
Abuzar has the absolute best customer service. He is very responsive, helpful, and amazingly helpful. Highly recommend renting with him!
Renting through Alvin and his beautiful cars on Turo is the best rental decision I have ever made hands down. If you are new to Turo, you need to stop renting at Avis, Hertz, and Enterprise immediately and give Alvin a chance to prove to you why renting from him is way better than any other rental place! His reviews speak for themselves and I can attest to it! He will blow you away with how fast he responds which is literally in seconds and the way he communicates is so professional and thorough. Never leaves any stone unturned. All your questions will be answered even before you ask because he's already anticipated what you're going to ask! He sends you videos for each car he has on the basic functions so when you get it, you'll already be familiar with it. His cars are in incredible shape and spotless clean. You will never have any doubt that you've made a wise decision to go with him. Once you go with him, I guarantee you, you will never want to rent from anybody else or any other rental company!
Fantastic vehicle and great communication throughout the whole trip. Krishanu truly made this experience unique and I would not hesitate to rent from him again.
Great experience renting from Alvin! The car was clean and Alvin's communication exceptional. The ease of pick up and return was a breeze!
Alvin was a great host! Great communication from the very beginning to the end. Very quick responses and made the entire experience a breeze. Will definitely be booking all of my future rentals with Alvin.
Alvin was amazing! He was so helpful and available 24/7 for any questions or concerns that I had. The car was clean and exactly what he had described it to be. I would definitely recommend renting from him again, very good experience!
Everything went smoothly. Car is excellent on gas. No problems. Nice friendly and professional. Will be renting again!!
Another smooth rental process from Alvin! The C8 Corvette is everything car reviewers have been talking about and the blue + racing stripe combo that Alvin has can’t be beat! Definitely an eye turner if that’s the kind of car you’re looking for in Jax. Will continue to look to Alvin’s line up of cars the next time I’m back.
Abuzar’s car was great. No problems at all and very easy to pick up. Great car and the value was best I saw on Turo
Man Alvin was the best host I’ve ever had while using Turo. He met me at the location after I was late to the pickup spot and showed me how to operate the vehicle this was very helpful. Also Alvin is very easy to communicate with when needed if you have questions. I will be renting from Alvin whenever I’m in Jacksonville from this day forward I encourage everyone to rent from Alvin. Oh yeah Alvin cars come with free car washes in case you need to clean your ride everyday of your rental. RENT FROM ALVIN!!!!!
Tim was great to deal with , car was super clean and in great shape would definitely use it again
Car was amazing and the Host was even better. He answered ball questions and was on target with responding to any messages or requests I had. Definitely will rent from him again
The host was wonderful. Car ran perfectly and was good on gas. The communication was great. Definitely will rent from him again.
Words cannot justify the customer satisfaction I experience whenever I rent from Alvin. I have been faithfully renting Alvin’s cars for the last two years and he is the only host in Jacksonville I ever look for to rent a car. There is a reason why all of his cars show up firsr at the top of all Turo search results from Fernandina Beach to Jacksonville to St Augustine. There is a reason why Alvin is full of only great 5 star reviews. There is a reason why he is by far the #1 host in the entire Northeast Florida. It is because he consistently goes above and beyond to make your rental experience a truly fun and memorable one. He always meticulously keeps his cars completely spotless inside and out. His cars are all sporty, eye candy, fun, prestigious, colorful, unique and luxurious. You know just the total opposite of what the typical rent a car companies offer: boring, common, dull colored, economy cars. His communication and response skills are unbelievable. He literally will respond every time to you for any questions within 10 seconds even if you text him at 130am he is still up and active and he is totally ok with it! His professionalism speaks volumes as he always carries himself like a pro whether it be greeting me with a firm hand shake, eye to eye contact, and a big smile that will brighten any ones day. He even wears a black professional collared shirt with the Turo logo on it with slacks that gives me assurance this guy knows what he is doing and carries himself like a successful pro. He even leaves me a snack and water inside the car that always comes in handy. I can go on and on how to show to you all the little things he does to make you believe renting from Alvin on Turo is the way better option than any other rent a car company. It’s a hands down no brainer every time. This is why I love Turo. This experience is unmatched and will never be matched by any other rental company because Alvin is truly one of a kind.
Wow! Great ride and unmatched customer service! If you want a hot head turning true fully convertible Corvette, this is the one to rent! what a beautiful car inside out, drives and looks brand new! On top of that, Alvin provides the best customer service experience hands down! Don’t hesitate to book this now! You wont regret it! Enterprise, hertz, and Avis dont even come close to what youll experience with Alvins Cars and service!
Abuzar’s smart car was a saving grace for me. I had a family emergency call for a last minute trip and his vehicle was and is affordable and efficient. It made the long trip there and back and when I returned the vehicle Abuzar was understanding and made the process hassle free. I would recommend this rental for someone in the city as it is easy to park and economical. I would definitely rent from him again. Thank you for the opportunity, and thank you for your patience and understanding during my return. Look forward to renting from you in the future.
Incredible car and a really great host! James was flexible and was available for anything I needed. Will definitely rent again next time I’m in Jacksonville.
Alessandro was very professional. Nice vehicle with a smooth ride. It was my first time renting through Turo and he totally eased my mind.
Great host; excellent communication. The car is well maintained, fuel efficient and extremely clean.
Alvin was very helpful and always available if I needed any assistance. I will be renting again thank you for the experience!
One of the best rental experiences. Love his car’s they’re great on gas. Looking forward to renting again from him
As usual, professional, on time, car runs perfectly and clean. The best in Jacksonville.
This is my second time renting from this host, both times the transaction was smooth and professional. The cars are always clean and in top running condition. This host is definitely my go to, when I'm looking to rent a luxury vehicle.
I was very satisfied with my rental Alvin was an excellent host. I would definitely recommend to anyone looking to rent nice cars weather for business or pleasure. I see myself renting from him again in the near future!!!
Smooth, beyond my expectations and I probably will never rent from Hertz, Enterprise, etc,. Very pleasant, vehicle in great condition and host was very helpful throughout my entire process and trip. Thank you
Host was very nice and friendly. Car is easy and comfortable to drive. If you're traveling in the cold seasons, the climate control and heated seats are a nice bonus.
Enjoyed my time in the vehicle.. Owner was nice and even help me start the car lol!!
Great car, from a superb guy. Andre made sure I was good from the time I got the car until it was time to return. Very professional, and outstanding!
Very professional,on time, and prompt. Will definitely be renting this smooth ride again. Amazing audio system.
This host & his car were of excellent service ! He helped me with some accommodations , approved my last minute extensions and was very nice !
Jamel was very helpful and friendly. Everything went exactly as I needed it to for my vacation
Alessandro was a great, friendly, and warming host. All around great guy, will be renting from him again.
Abuzar was very easy to book with. Had a great trip with no problems at all. Will definitely book with him again in the future!
While this entire highway is overflowing with palm-lined ocean views, the stretch between Fernandina Beach and St. Augustine is a real treat in a drop top Jacksonville car rental.
Roll down the windows on your Jacksonville car rental alternative for this causal meander along the St. Johns River. You’ll pass beneath moss-laden oaks and by historic homes, like that of the writer Harriet Beecher Stowe.
Head west to Perry in your Jacksonville car rental alternative to pick up this seaside highway that runs through wildlife preserves, before zipping between the Gulf coast and the Apalachicola Forest.
