So much better than car rental companies
Frank - November 29, 2019
We had such a great experience with our whole trip. Brian was amazing. He met us at the airport, was right on time and was super helpful. We were actually late coming back and he was super accommodating and made it easy for us. I know we could have messed up his whole plans since it was New Year’s eve but he didn’t even make it a fuss. I would definitely rent any time from him when we come into Philadelphia or New Jersey. The car was clean and neat and worked great for us and our family. Thank you so much.

Franz was a fantastic host. We could not have asked for a better experience. Pickup and drop off were a breeze, the car ran perfectly and Franz even went out of his way to accommodate an extra day for us. This is the best experience I’ve ever had with a car rental. I highly recommend Franz to anyone!

Fraz was great to work with. He was very flexible about my return time when I needed it. He's very easy to communicate with and he gets back to you right away. I never had to wait. I would rent from him again. :-)

Thanks for your service! I really enjoyed using your car to drive around town. It was really an amazing time out here on vacation. The car was in great condition, how the car drove was great, just my overall experience out here in Philadelphia was a great experience!! I would definitely be contacting Dennis to use one of his cars again on my next trip to Philadelphia. Great great service! Communication was great!

Very clean Ford Focus. It gets the job done. Same thing you’d expect from a normal rental car, except booking through Nycol will save you a TON of money.

Catherine is truly the hostess with the mostess!!! Let me just brag a little about her if you will??? First thing is the smooth transaction in pick-up and drop off. This particular host accommodated three extensions of her vehicle, as well as dropping me off at the train station upon return of it. My business travel out of State was also stress-free with the use of the installed E-ZPASS! I really could go on and on, but will end by saying Catherine's persona is that of a professional caring nature. Her goal seems to be to get ya where you're going safely! Thanks a million for being Tutors best host!

We have gone through Turo for Teslas at several US airports and one in Canada. They have all been excellent but Ryan was exceptional. He met us at the gate, the car was clean and ready to go, and he even helped load the luggage carefully. On the return he was waiting when we pulled up to baggage claim and again helped us. I really couldn't hope for anything better. I'll definitely reach out to him for all of our trips into the Philadelphia area.

Both the car and the host were amazing! The M235i is a great little sports car. It has the fun factor without being out of touch, and it also has a little eco mode that for some reason I really enjoyed lol. The car is awesome, because it has the sportiness as well as the comfort. Matthew was also an all-star. He was able to accommodate a schedule change as well as a pickup/drop off, and he was very nice. He explained the rules and operation of the car in a polite way and answered all my questions. He also gave me the car in good, clean condition. Overall a great experience!

I needed a rental in a pinch and came across Turo. Sarathy had a promotional code to save $25, on my first rental, which I was able to use on one of his cars. The car was available as expected and easy to access via the provided instructions. When the check engine light came on in my rental, which started at 5am, Sarathy was available to coordinate a swap for a different car in the same area and I was on the road within less than 10 minutes. He was also communicative through the trip and flexible with time when I was returning it after the recent snowstorm in the Philadelphia area. The car itself was clean and drove nicely, and seemed dependable. I would recommend Sarathy's service.

Local Philadelphia favorites

The Liberty Bell and Independence Hall are well and good, but culture beats scheme in here in Philly. Book a car from Turo and get off the beaten path with these local Philadelphia highlights.

  • Northern Liberties & Fishtown

  • Described as "too hip for its own good", the Northern Liberties neighborhood of Philly has cool new bars, shops, and restaurants popping up each day.

  • Philly cheesesteak

  • No visit to the City of Brotherly Love is complete without a cheesesteak. Debate abounds for the "best of" — Pat’s and Geno’s are strong contenders, but Jim’s on South St. is a local favorite.

  • The Barnes Foundation

  • A divine collection of post-Impressionist and early modern paintings, The Barnes houses masterpieces by Renoir, Cézanne, Matisse, and Picasso and is a must for any art lover.
