My first trip with Turo was 100% positive - I doubt I will use a manjor car rental again if Turo is available in that city. Great value, great selection of cars, my Turo guy gave great service, and add-ons like add’l insurance were reasonably priced.

I really appreciated this car. Ran well and was easy to drive. Steve was very helpful with all the information and help I needed.

Clean car, excellent experience with the owner, Dustin! Using Turo for the 1st time - very easy - the App was very user friendly. Good alternative to the higher prices of car rental companies now.

Bradley is friendly, extremely responsive and accommodating. Vehicle is clean and relatively inexpensive to fill up, even considering the expensive gas prices haha. I was surprised at how spacious the vehicle actually is and it's a very smooth ride. Would definitely rent again and would absolutely recommend.

This is an excellent vehicle. It rides smooth and has a comfortable and high tech interior. All of the modern features made driving and navigating in this vehicle a breeze. I was driving a good amount and my trip was five days. I only had to fill up once which was a perk with today’s gas prices. Eddie was flexible and easy to communicate with. I extended my trip a couple of times and Eddie was able to work with me. I’ll definitely be renting again when I’m in the area!!!

The car is well maintained, super clean very spacious, and drives extremely well. Jabril was extremely professional, friendly, and willing to be flexible with pick up/drop-off times. I would 100% recommend using this car, you get a full-size SUV for an unbeatable price, far less than the other full-size SUV"s but is still equipped with state of the art technology that comes with all the newer models.

Volkswagen Atlas 2021

We needed a larger SUV for a trip to Asheville with family visiting. The Atlas was clean and comfortable, great 3rd row seating and left with adequate space for luggage. We had an issue with a tire and Jerry was excellent to work with. He didn't push us for anything specific and allowed us flexibility to handle the issue. Although the issue added a great deal of stress to the last day of our trip, Jerry was as supportive as he can be and even reimbursed for the repairs. This was our first time renting on Turo and if it wasn't for our experience with Jerry it would have left a bad taste in our mouth and we may have decided to never rent here again.

Jeep Compass 2017

Latanya was flexible, laidback, took necessary C19 precautions, and the car was quite obviously CLEAN. Didn't feel like I needed to worry at all about C19 concerns. Pickup and drop-off were both primarily no-contact. REALLY appreciated this low-stress, easygoing rental process. Even had a bottle of (UNSCENTED!) sanitizer in the console, so we didn't have to tote ours along with all the other luggage. <3

Best Raleigh driving roads

Purple squiggle

Tail of the Dragon

Also known as Deal’s Gap, this 11-mile section of US Route 129 is popular among drivers and bikers for its racetrack-like set of 318 curves with little to no elevation.

Hanging Rock

Take the deliciously windy NC-66 up to the Hanging Rock State Park to let your Raleigh car rental alternative revel in the steep mountain ascent and hairpin turns.

Blue Ridge Parkway

This highway is the most famous road North Carolina for great reason. Rev up your Raleigh car rental alternative to get blown away by the mountain ridges any time of year, but particularly in the fall.
