While the city is best known for the brassy neon signs alighting a handful of downtown casinos, Reno is truly much more than a gambling grotto. Since the opening of the nearby Tesla Gigafactory, the city has drawn a crowd of younger, hipper entrepreneurial types, who are filling Midtown with well-balanced cocktails and happening live shows.
Tucked into the Sierra Nevadas, just over the hill from Lake Tahoe, Reno is blessed with magnificent alpine and desert scenery that begs to be explored, so pop into your Reno airport car rental alternative to take in the sights, sounds, and majesty.
While the classic casinos are still worth a gamble and gander, there’s plenty of other charming destinations in Reno.
This collection of funky boutiques, galleries, lounges, and restaurants along the Truckee River is the heart of downtown revival, and abounds with entertainment options every day.
The Harrah Collection, as it’s also known, exhibits a number of rare and one-of-a-kind classic cars, including the 1949 Mercury Series 9CM driven by James Dean in Rebel Without A Cause.
Hovering just above downtown, the local mountain is not only the quickest way to ride the slopes in the winter, it also boasts picturesque trails for hiking and mountain biking in warmer months.
The crystal clear waters of this glacial mountain lake are impossible to look away from. Take your Reno car rental alternative over Mount Rose to hike, paddle, or set up beachside.
The Old West is alive and well in this former silver mining town. Take the 40-minute trip in your Reno car rental alternative for an encounter with ghosts at the Silver Queen Hotel.
Drive your Reno car rental alternative to these massive dunes left behind by a dried up lake. It’s a popular place to motorbike or ATV, and when the wind blows just right, you’ll hear the sand sing.
Nick is the best! Amazing customer service and great cars.
Scott was very flexible with our schedule. The car was clean and dependable.
Great ride! Took a road trip from Reno to Tahoe. Car got great mileage, was clean and easy to drive, and was easy to pick up as well. Thank you Marina!
Pickup and dropoff couldn't have gone smoother. Car was clean, everything was on time, everything in the car worked great. Kevin was incredibly easy to talk to and work with and knew the car in and out, which was helpful in learning how to get the most out of the plug in hybrid. Would rent again!
This is my first trip with Turo, it was so easy I don’t know if I’ll rent from a rental company again. Kevin was more than great. For his car being a 2013 it looked drove and smelled new. He’s excellent at communication and was flexible with my late arriving flight. I’d love to rent from Kevin again.
Nick provided excellent and friendly service, the car was great, and I highly recommend this service to others travelers.
The best in the Reno/Tahoe area. Amazing customer service from start to finish!
Derek is awesome! Very professional and friendly. Highly recommended.
This is my first time using Turo. Devon made this experience great! Very simple and smooth pick up & return. Not to mention the car was awesome! Thanks again
Nice owner. Always respond eight away. Car is new and clean. Pick up and return was super easy. Enough miles for enjoy. Thank you so much. Loved it.
Thanks for everything Craig! Rental was awesome, service was awesome
It was a great trip. Car is nice and clean. Lori was super flexible and helpful during all trip. Highly recommend her.
All I can say is that Nick and Team were super easy to work with and the Car was in great condition.
Nick and his team were wonderful! Simple pick up, super flexible and made everything so easy. My husband had an amazing time driving this car (and driving his friend around too!) and loved every minute! Would highly recommend and will absolutely use again!
Really grateful for easy-going post and convinced my family that every car not a Tesla is a complete waste of money :-)
100% would recommend and rent again. Amaaaazing and fast.
The car was clean and nice. And Marina was kind and nice too.
Everything about Marina and her vehicle was perfect. What a great host!11/10 would work with again!!!
Nick was great to work will and super accommodating! The car was exactly what I needed and came as described
Great car and great rental experience (pickup/dropoff, communication, etc). I highly recommend renting from Andrew!
Gandharv was prompt to get back to me with any questions or concerns I had. He was easy to get ahold of and the process went smoothly. The car is very nice and sleek! In great condition and felt very comfortable driving it. Would highly recommend!
Everything was absolutely perfect. Zero complaints. Thank you so much for a smooth experience!
My experience renting Nick’s car was exceptional. He was very accommodating and flexible throughout my rental period. I highly recommend him for your next rental experience and would rent from him again!
Great experience. LOVED that they called a Lyft for me!! Excellent service. No issues!!
Had an awesome experience driving this car! Laith was very friendly and went over everything in the car before we started our trip. The features are pretty incredible and fun to play with. I would recommend other drivers interested in renting a Tesla to go to Laith.
Great car and great app to rent from the host was very cool as well, I look forward to renting again.
My wife and I rented the 124 Spider from Nick for our honeymoon. It was the easiest rental transaction I’ve ever had. Him and his cohost Casey were easy to work with, the car was perfectly as advertised, and they were personable through the entire exchange. Wish all transactions were just like this. Grade A.
Perfect vehicle for cruising around Tahoe! Nick was super helpful and communicative the whole week. Thanks!
Amazing trip! Robert was easy to work with and very responsive to questions/concerns.
This was my second time renting Nick’s Subaru. Nick is very easy to deal with and makes picking up and returning the vehicle a breeze. The car was clean, low mileage and drives well. I highly recommend renting a vehicle from Nick and will be a regular customer of his when I need a car in the Reno/Tahoe area.
Lori made everything very easy and was always quick to respond.
What a fantastic experience !!! Nick and Casey were top notch pleasant, punctual and available. My wife and I rented one of there Can-am Spyders and had a blast for the four days of touring around Lake Tahoe. We traveled from Denver Colorado for the long weekend. Airport pick up was a snap with pre-arrangement by Nick by Lyft. Excellent helmets were provided and instructions and safety review provided by Casey. Our journey up and around Lake Tahoe was memorable the Spyder really took it to another level. The machine worked flawlessly and is straightforward to operate. If you’re looking for s fun twist on transportation and in Reno give these guys a chance, they’ll get you all set with top notch transportation weather it’s s Can-am Spyder or one of their other top tier vehicles, I seriously doubt you’ll be disappointed. When back in Reno I’ll rent from Nick and Casey again. Extremely satisfied customer John F.
First time on Turo and wow it was such a GREAT experience working with Nick and Casey. I had so much fun cruising Mt Rose and Lake Tahoe with the Spyder. Everything was so super smooth.
Very nice car! Hayward was excellent with communication.
Nick and Casey were amazing to work with throughout my rental transaction including prompt responses and timely delivery and pick up of the vehicle. The car delivered was exactly as advertised and was in top notch shape. Overall, I had an excellent rental experience with them and highly recommend their rental services. I will definitely work with them again on my next trip to Reno!!
Derek was great from the get go! He was always quick to communicate, very clear in his directions for pick up and drop off and the car was in impeccable condition. He even provided a very thorough first aid kit and cooler with cold water and Capri suns, much to my 5 year old’s delight. Would definitely recommend Derek!
Great communication, Great car! Kevin and his wife were extremely easy to work with and very friendly. I wouldn't hesitate to book this car again!
Lori was fantastic and very flexible when I requested a later pickup and early return. Totally wasn't expecting to have her drop off the vehicle, and I certainly appreciated it. The Optima drove fantastic, comfy and no issues whatsoever.
This was a perfect ride for my needs! It was easy to get to from the airport. They were super nice and explained all the features of the car and it was so clean.
We had an amazing time I would recommend this car to everyone.
Couldn’t have been more pleased with everything. I wasn’t the easiest to accommodate because I rented for a full day 10am-10am and decided last minute to drop off the bike after dinner the first day. As long as you are communicating with them, I feel they will respect a change of drop off. Casey met me on time, and was smooth experience from start to finish. Would HIGHLY recommend to anyone that enjoys riding to rent with these guys!! Would do it again in a heartbeat.
Hayward was super quick to respond to all my questions. Pick up and drop off was ridiculously easy. The car looked like it had just left the showroom floor and was spotless. Should the opportunity arise, I would rent from Hayward again.
Very accommodating renter. Gave me a course in riding. Will rent from these awesome guys again. Highly recommend.
Hayward was extremely helpful. We picked up at the airport and he made it very easy for pickup. He even extended our trip early in the morning because we were running late. He was great to work with. Highly recommend.
A great opportunity to try a cool car. This was our first Turo rental and Robert was great in every aspect. We will rent this car again the next time we go to Tahoe
This was our first time using Turo and Marina and her car were outstanding. She was extremely easy to work with, very flexible, and had the car ready within the hour for our last minute reservation! Would HIGHLY recommend renting from her. She (and her sporty little Kia) are fantastic!
Voy was great. Car is very clean and he made pick up and return very easy. I’d give him and the car more than 5 stars. Andy
Hayward was a wonderful person to rent from. He dropped off the car where I live and when I returned the car he even drove me back home. The car was also amazing. Shooth ride in a great condition.
Allyn was a great host! One of the most chill and cool host I’ve rented from. I highly recommend Allyn!
Nick and Casey were awesome. Very communicative and easy to work with. We even got a ride back to the airport after the dropoff! As easy as working with a traditional rental company but with more help :)
Great, very fuel-efficient car and completely seamless pickup & return experience. No problems at all.
The car was perfect for our ski vacation. There was some pretty serious weather between Reno and Incline Village, but the car's AWD and snow tires handled it all smoothly. Nick was a great host: easy to communicate with, prompt, and the vehicle was exactly as advertised. I'll absolutely rent from him again.
Excellent vehicle. Very capable in the snow. Very clean. Snow brush in the car. The pick up was just outside the airport. As a first time customer, it was not straightforward to get to the pickup.
Car pick up and drop off was seamless. The care itself was excellent. We needed an all wheel drive with winter tires to go to Tahoe, and the car handled perfectly, zero issues with hazardous driving conditions. Will rent again next time I come through. Thanks again!
Derek was very helpful and communicative and the car was very safe to drive in snow conditions. He takes really good care of his cars and would highly recommend renting from him!
Great value and Scott was very easy-going. Appreciate very much his help.
Great service. We needed a 4 wheel drive vehicle and could not get one “economically” from traditional rental agencies. Awesome communication around pick up and drop off. I highly recommend Nick and his team.
Great communication and the perfect car for a ski trip. Highly recommend and would definitely rent again!!
Scott is extremely nice, accommodating, and professional. I would definitely rent from him again. Thank you so much!
Great ride! Sportiest vehicle i have driven on the street. Thanks Stevie!
Stevie is a wonderful host. Professional, Clean, and a super fun car! Would recommend 5/5!
This was a perfect experience! Robert and his wife are as nice as they come! The car was amazing! Clean and super fun to drive.
My first time using Turo and I could not have asked for a better experience. The F-type was a pleasure to drive. I will definitely be booking through Nick again should I return to the Reno/Tahoe area.
Kevin’s service was excellent! The car was great to drive, very economic and very clean!! Kevin was very pontual and flexible!
Allyn is accommodating and his car was perfect ! Thank you
What an amazing car. Got lots of attention at gas stations :). Fun to drive too. Helped make my vacation unforgettable!
Had a fantastic trip to Mammoth Ski area with my kids. The entire process with Nick was flawless and a pleasure. I would highly recommend using his service and I know that I certainly will in the future.
Amazing experience with Nick. Great people recommend 10/10.
Hayward was amazing, we got alot of snow at Tahoe and he politely agreed to let us keep the car for a couple more hours to ensure we made it back safely. W I will rent from him every time I fly into Reno.
Went on a great cabin trip to Tahoe. Cameron was great as was the car. Highly recommended!
Jeff’s car is awesome, I highly recommend it. Jeff was fantastic to deal with, super helpful at all stages and the whole experience was a real pleasure. Thanks Jeff!
Our experience was amazing with Nicks company. The car was in great condition, and it was very clean. We had awesome experience and would recommend his company over almost all other car rentals. Thank you for a the excellent service.
Lori was very communicative and responsive to any inquiries I had and renting her car was a breeze! I will definitely be renting from her again. Thanks Lori!
Kevin was very friendly and accommodating. The car went beyond expectations, aside from the great gas milage you get the fill up at the end of your trip will most likely be under $20 bucks. I will definitely be renting from.him again next time I am.in Reno/Tahoe area.
What a fantastic experience! The Porsche Speedster was a joy to drive and a beauty to behold. I would recommend it for weddings, anniversaries, etc. You will make great memories in this car. Solomon was great to work with too, easygoing and accommodating. Thank you!
Car was very clean and it rides smoothly like brand new. Picking up and dropping was very easy and convenient.
Easy to pick-up & return the car. Left a kit in the car which included water bottles, aspirin, Tums, candy, gum, snacks, etc. A nice touch, and the Advil came in handy after a day of skiing.
Marina was an amazing host. I loved driving her little car it worked out perfectly for me and it was very convenient she also was super attentive when responding to messages it’s like she doesn’t sleep. If you’re looking to rent a car I can highly recommend using her. Only had one or two problems which were not really her fault but she took care of them. I don’t know what else to say I just cannot say enough good things about her.
Thank you Derek! We had a wonderful stay in Reno and was able to go around places easily with the use of your car.
Stephen was very flexible and gave me the car ready to go. It’s a rocket ship, give it a go
Steve was very helpful with an orientation about the car! This was very important for us to get off with a great start! The whole experience was worthwhile.
Called the Loneliest Road in America, this highway shimmers across the desert floor so your Reno car rental alternative can effortlessly cruise through ghost towns and red mountain ranges.
This sparkling oasis about an hour east of Reno offers dramatic views of the lake’s pyramid rock as you spin your Reno car rental alternative 40 miles around its perimeter.
For incredible views and sweeping valley curves, let your Reno car rental alternative slither down Highway 376 from Austin and Tonopah, between the Toiyabe and Toquima Mountains.
