Mercedes was a terrific car and the owners could not have been more accommodating. Easy pick up at the airport and at the end of trip they made sure I got to the Avis rent a car to continue on my travels to southern FL. Best car rental in Tampa!
We enjoyed having this cute car for our weekend in Tampa. The owner was kind and had good communication. A fun and luxury car to explore the city for 1-2 people. The owner was always professional and friendly and made my first Turo rental pretty simple!
Loved everything about this! Anthony and his wife made my vacation car rental simple and easy. Car was immaculate. Would recommend to everyone!!
Literally best host ever. Went above and beyond in everything! The car was awesome too. Seriously, I mean it, if you want to rent a car in Tampa - do it with Alp.
Saved our trip! Airport ran out of rental cars and we were able to get a car on short notice and start our trip off, so very appreciated!
James/Connor and 'Future Girl 3.0' were all equally amazing hosts during our 2021 Blizzard Getaway! This experience was truly the car rental off the future, and this father/son duo are surely setting the example of how this should be done. Thank you both so much! I will certainly be in touch again, next time I land in Tampa!
This is my first time renting through this Turo app! I have to say David made things so seamless from booking to rental to pick up to drop off! David stayed in constant communication with me if I had any issues! If your ever in the Tampa area make sure you use me David! If your also looking for luxury as well as a sport vehicle this is the one your looking for. I got so many compliments at the event I attended I almost wanted to buy me one like this LOL. All and all book with mr David you can’t go wrong
Gregory offer one of the best experience when renting a Tesla: clean, impeccable cars and he will send you access to Car via Tesla app so you can enjoy all features. And is always available for support an guidance. If you are visiting Tampa or Any other place in Florida where he provides service and you are looking to rent a Tesla do not miss this opportunity.
If you want to rent a car from a well put together attractive guy this is your guy!
Salem’s Elantra was a fantastic rental. Beautiful car, primo condition and Salem was extremely easy to deal with. If you want to rent a great car with no hassle, this is the one.
Awesome car! Good communication and easy pick up and drop off. Would definitely rent a car from Siddhant again.
Matt was better than most hosts at responding quickly and being understanding of changing circumstances surrounding the car rental needs. Pick up and drop off was seamless. Car had convertible top and apple CarPlay and was fun to drive even though part of me missed my EV.
As a first time user of the Turo platform I have to say that Shane made it as easy as possible. He explained the process and guided me through the entire thing. As someone who always used the big rental outfits in the past I will now look to Turo and hosts like Shane going forward before even considering the big guys. Upon arrival the car was clean and ready to go. Shane was incredibly forthcoming and pointed out the minor scratches that existed and had actually already documented anything that I found before I even took possession of the vehicle. I felt completely comfortable with the whole process thanks to his guidance and honesty. I highly recommend you use Shane if you are in the Tampa area, especially if you're a rookie such as myself. I will be renting from Shane again in the future.
Mike was an excellent host, everything from start to finish was professional and easy. He picked us up from the airport and drove us to the pick-up spot which was very kind of him. The car itself was extremely smooth, clean and nice to drive for our trip down here. Drop off was a breeze at the airport with easy and detailed instructions which made it extremely easy. I will definitely be renting from Mike next time in the Tampa area, I highly suggest going with him for Turo!
This vehicle is definitely showing signs of its age, notably in the interior. However, Tesla is clearly the blame as they were still figuring out its design/materials (which just don’t hold up as compared to other luxury brands in these earlier mode years). Regardless, this vehicle was clean on the inside and everything worked as advertised. Where it shined was in its driving performance, which is common for most EV’s. I would have never known the age without some of the cosmetic clues. Gregory was a wonderful host, which is why this service shines over rental car companies. He was responsive to questions and very fair. I would definitely use one of his vehicles again when I visit the Tampa area.
Mike was awesome! The car as perfect for what I needed. AC was ice cold, but I’m a windows down, roof open kind of guy! The trip was supposed to be 4 days, but turned into over 2 weeks...Mike graciously kept accepting the trip extensions, as this is a spare vehicle for him! Will absolutely rent from Mike again...I already told him to get a minivan as I’ll need one in Tampa in 2 months LOL. Thanks again Mike!!
You would be foolish to choose anyone over Charles!!! Legit best situation ever!!! Made my trip easier than ever imagined!! If everyone acted like Charles the world would would be an amazing place!!! Seriously thank you Charles for making our transportation in Tampa a dream!!!! And the car was clean, fun to drive, and wayyyy nicer in person than in pics!!
Great host, follow his instructions to the letter and you’ll have no issues. For those new to turo or new to commercial hosts, he does ask for photos of your license & yourself but it’s to ensure the renter has valid credentials & that it’s actually you picking up the car. I was hesitant at first but certainly understandable. The car was great, awesome on gas and stylish. Would definitely use this host again for my car rental needs.
By far the best experience using turo is with Willena. Cars are in perfect condition and she is great to deal with. Definitely going to be a repeat customer.
Thank you so much I had great time Tampa won the super bowl and Siddhant showed excellent service very respectable very clean and helpful he replied immediately every time I contacted him he was on time dropping off and picking up!!!!! If you plan on going Turo in Tampa make sure you use Siddhant and his amazing fleet of excellent cars
Easy Rental. Great Deal. Excellent Communication. Fast and fun car to drive. Happy Renter here A+++
John was prompt and detailed in communication. He makes it super easy to pick up and drop-off if you are coming thru the Tampa Airport - better than standing in lines at the rental counter. Great experience for this first time Turo user. Highly recommend renting from John.
We wanted to have a fun car to enjoy the great weather on vacation in the Tampa area. We had great service and the car was exceptional. Even though it was February we could have the top down with heated seats in the evening. Plenty of room to bring beach bags or overnight bags. Thank you Matheus
This is the best way to rent a vehicle while on vacation instead of the airport rentals.
Shane's vehicle was great. Exactly what I needed on this trip. He's very prompt at messaging back and providing details for pick and drop off. The car drove well and gets incredible gas mileage. Super cheap to fill up and more than affordable to rent.
Matheus was a great host. Car was clean and in excellent condition. Definitely made my trip to the Tampa area nice and easy. Would recommend him to anyone and would definitely use again when in the area.
This was my first Turo experience and I couldn’t have asked for a better one! Judith and her husband were so responsive and accommodating. The pick up and drop off was easy from the airport. The car is very nice, drove well and I had no issues at all. I’ll definitely rent from Judith next time I visit Tampa.
This was my first time using the app and I was a little nervous but Siddhant was amazing and answered all of my questions. I can’t wait to come back to Tampa and book his cars again. I highly recommend going with his vehicles. Just not when I’m back in town!
I’ve been considering buying a Tesla Model 3 for some time now and wanted to experience one before doing so, therefore, I decided to rent from James and Connor due to their reasonable daily rates and glowing reviews. Overall, it was a seemless process that was much less hassle than renting a car from traditional rental agencies (e.g., Enterprise, Avis, Budget, etc.). There were a few instances where I forgot a rule and James & Connor promptly and kindly let me know which was appreciated. The overall service and experience with the car was great. This is no fault to James & Connor, but I do want to warn that you should plan your trips out accordingly as Hillsborough, Pinellas and Orange county have ample Tesla superchargers, whereas, Pasco, Hernando and Sarasota county do not and it is honestly a hassle if you cannot use a Tesla supercharger.
What can I say that I or others haven’t already said? Nothing, Randy is amazing and his cars are spectacular. Since I will continue to rent from him I’ll focus on the cleanliness this time. Spotless. You know when you get in a rental and you get the heeby-jeebies cause something is sticky or you see discolorations on the steering wheel or ceiling of the car, maybe smudges on windows? Yea, never in Randy’s cars. It literally looks like a car that’s been detailed (every time) right before a first date. You know, to impress. Any who, thanks Randy for another great rental on my trip to Tampa.
Beautiful car inside and out. Love the red leather! Great on gas rides so smooth! By far one of the best cars to rent!! I will be booking this vehicle again in the future
Mauricio’s car was great for our trip through Lakeland, Tampa, Clearwater, and St. Pete. Would book again.
Very clean car that ran great! Willena was amazing at communicating & I will rent again next time I’m in Tampa!
The rental went smoothly. We had extended our vacation and David was great in facilitating another car for our use. He was very professional
Had a nice trip. Byron really will look out for you with ensuring the car rental experience is the best and able to work with your schedule . Highly recommend to all.
Nice and clean car! Yuri was very polite and got the rental in no time. Very responsive. Highly recommend! Thank you!
Clean car. Yuri was very understanding when I needed to extend my rental period. Would recommend
Guilherme provided an amazing experience! The pick up was quick and smooth as silk. The car was absolutely the cleanest rental I have ever had!! It ran great and he kept in constant communication with us to see if we had any issues or needs throughout the trip. We will definitely rent again from him when we return to Tampa. When we travel it is such a treat to have an experience so positive that you keep talking to one another about how great it is and we did! What a rare find!
Minè is a great Turo host. This was my first time renting off of Turo and she made it so easy. Beautiful car for a great price, made my trip 100x better. Definitely would rent from her again! 10/10 recommend this Turo host!
Wanted something different to drive on vacation. Nothing better cruising up and down the coast along the beaches in a Mustang with the top down! Tatiane made the process very easy and simple for us. The ease of picking up the car and dropping off at airport was great! Don't miss your chance to get this car and enjoy the area with the top down!
Hunter was fantastic! This was my first time using Turo on my vacation to florida , he actually has a great process and amazing car , the corvette was a dream, I look forward to driving his other cars and my next vacation.... Turo is the way to go!
Very easy pick up and delivery. The car was spacious, clean, and have some pick up and go to it. Perfect for getting around Tampa.
Kyle was the best! He communicates well and the car was perfect. I couldn't have asked for a better experience! Can't wait to rent it again! Thank you for making my wedding extra special!
Zubair was quick to respond and a great host. The car was fabulous and had great miles per gallon. Would definitely book again if I was back in Tampa
Siddhant was very helpful and most importantly he communicated very well! Great, clean, and smooth ride! Definitely will use him again for my next trip to Tampa!
Excellent service. Easy pick up and drop off. Why wait in line for an overpriced rental car when you can book a rental through this app. Matheus provides great communication and service.
The trip was awesome, car was clean and in great condition. Will definitely rent from Matheus next time I’m in town!
Dandre is very respectful, punctual and a true gentleman. Will definitely rent the car from him again if needed. I recommend him and his cars.
The was the best experience. Easy, and owner was very helpful when it came down to giving instructions on what to do and how to retrieve the car. The car was great! I will rent from you again.
Great car, excellent service, very convenient, would definitely rent this car my next trip.
Siddhant is an amazing, sophisticated and compassionate young man ! Enjoyed renting from him twice already, cars are very nice and always clean. Look forward to doing more business with him thank you Sid !
Briana was terrific from start to finish! She really helped me out by leaving her car at the airport when I picked it up. The car was spotless and obviously very well maintained. I visit Tampa on a regular basis and hope to do business with Briana on a regular basis.
Great experience ! Car drove smoothly with no issues at all. Matheus was very responsive as well when we did need to contact him once during the trip..would definitely rent this car again :)
Ms Jones was professional and gracious when I by mistake keep the keys to the rental car. She had to drive back and pick them up before my flight at the airport. Thanks so much!
Robert was a fantastic host. The car was perfect. Pickup and drop off was extremely easy with him. I will definitely rent cars from him next time I’m in Florida. Highly recommended him
Elaine’s car is gorgeous! This beautiful convertible really took our Super Bowl trip over the top. Impeccably clean & so fun to drive. Due to the fabulous weather we were able to ride in style with the top down our entire trip. Elaine was so very nice & super accommodating when we needed to lengthen our trip & adjust times. A top notch host she was always early, easy to get in touch with & confirmed/responded promptly. Already planning another visit & we definitely hope we can rent Elaine’s Mustang again!
Drew was top tier. Definitely renting from him again when I make it back to Tampa.
I love this car! It was immaculate, comfortable, and a pleasure to drive. Renato was amazing, my flight was delayed twice on the way to pick up the car, and he was more than accommodating. After arriving 2 hours after my scheduled arrival time he was at the pickup location waiting with a smile, and a beautiful car, which looks exactly as advertised, if not cleaner. The beach chairs and umbrella thrown in for a fee( far cheaper than renting on the beach), we’re great.
Great car and a great host. Ellis is a very nice guy and very easy to work with. I would rent from Ellis again. Looking forward to my next trip.
In and out perfect on the pickup and delivery. I might have just found my Tampa car rental lol.
John was extremely efficient, professional, and easy going. The A6 S is a dream car: beautiful, comfortable, and puts a smile on your face that cannot be wiped away with a brick. I have begun to tell all my friends about this awesome driving machine, the owner, and the "new" AirBnB of rental cars - Turo. Thank you, Jon Holland!
Car was great. Runs smooth. Bose Radio is nice with Apple CarPlay. Everything you need in a car Perfect Rental.
Based on my first time experience, Turo is an awesome service and Michael made it as easy as you could imagine. The car was immaculate & the transaction was highly professional. This was way easier, better, and less expensive than using a traditional car rental agency. I would rent from Michael again in a second.
Well maintained vehicle. Randy was great. He went above and beyond for us. We asked him before our trip if he knew where we could rent a car seat for our toddler. He decided to purchase one in advance of our trip and rent it to us for our convenience. Thanks again for your accommodations Randy!
Man rockstar rental! Appreciate it so much. I’m not going to use a lot of words because “less is more” but will definitely recommend renting
Excellent host! Car was immaculate!! Check-in and check-out was simple. I will definitely rent from Pablo again if we return to the area. Thanks again.
Car was as described. Really helped us out on short notice when no car rentals were available in Tampa.
Great host! Fast response and very helpful throughout the day of renting the Tesla. Restricted speed set for safe driving. Definitely recommend this car and host!
Very easy and smooth . Car was clean and as expected . No surprises . Would definitely rent again and highly recommend .
Can't say enough good things about Willena and the cars. Always a great experience. Thanks again!!!
This car is a true beauty. The ride is smooth and letting the top down another great feature to ride in style. I highly recommend booking this vehicle for your next trip. Shane was great through out by whole trip and easy to get in contact with
He was an outstanding host. The car was super clean and smelled pretty good. He didn’t even make a big deal about returning the car a little later than expected. Recommend definitely
Thanks mike! Very friendly and informative. Car drove great. Super good on gas as well. Would Highly recommend renting from mike
James was great. The car pick was on time and I was able to extend the trip with no problem. Thanks again!
Randy is simply amazing. He will go out of his way for you as a customer, every time. His cars (I’ve been in all of them) are impeccable and well taken car of. He is prompt and responsible. Follow his basic and common sense rules and you will have a blast with the rentals. Thanks for another great trip broham and cheese!
Miguel's BMW was everything I was looking for during my 3-night trip to Tampa! It drives reliably, I really appreciated the included lightning cable. I was able to play music throughout my entire trip. I appreciate the sunroof and the spacey trunk. It made for a great weekender car and we took it everywhere from the beach to our Airbnb without any issues. I would definitely recommend you rent from Miguel.
This was the best experience I’ve had on Turo. John is really passionate about his Tesla and will take the time to show you how to use everything. I’d strongly recommend renting from John.
Alan and everyone involved was incredible, The level of service you receive is impeccable. The car is such a beauty, prepare yourself for a new level of awesomeness when your cruise the city in this car. I will be back to rent again. And they answer all your questions and are so helpful
