Everything was smooth, from the rental admin to the car itself. Wife loved it. Lots of fun to drive a novel car like this. Wife said she preferred it to a lambo or Ferrari.
The car was great and clean and John was friendly and great communicating back to my messages. Also gave us a great rundown of the car! Would recommend him to anyone looking to rent!
Best car ever used from this site hands down . Andy was very helpful .Car rides and drives like it had zero miles on it .
First off, the Tesla is an amazing car to drive. The host provided a detailed instructional demo for me since I did not have any experience with driving a Tesla. Which I would highly recommend if you are not familiar with the car. Secondly, the car is very clean The car performed beyond my expectations! I plan to purchase a Tesla in the future because of this experience! Lastly, upon returning the car I caused some damaged to the front of the car. The host was very understanding of the situation and worked with me to resolve the claims process amicably. The host is highly communicative and reasonable. Thank you for the opportunity to rent out your beautiful Tesla!
Had a really great time with the car and the host was very nice. Definitely will rent again
Such an awesome rental! Really fast and easy. I requested the rental the night before and it was ready that same night.
Super great car. Joshua is great also. I will be using this car again as if it is available!
Very easy pick-up/drop-off service at the airport! It made our trip very easy.
The entire process from picking up to dropping off was great. Car was clean, well cared for and owners very nice.
Tika's Slingshot is a must rent! Tika is a super awesome host and makes pick up and drop off a breeze. The Slingshot is so much fun to drive!!! I am a returning customer and have rented with Tika many times. As I've said before... this is the best vehicle for rent in the Tucson Market😎
Nice car , very easy to work / communicate with...... will use again definitely
This was so convenient and a great price. Any time I had a question or needed to change something he got back to me right away. Best car rental experience I have ever had.
Tika's Slingshot is hands down the best Turo rental in Tucson!!! It was SO much fun to drive...even though it was blazing balls outside (I literally got heat stroke lol). The car was clean and sanitized. Pickup and drop-off was smooth as butter! Driving this car is a head turner. Handles turns like a boss. Fantastic gas millage as well. Only downside is everybody keeps renting the damn thing...so I couldn't keep it longer. I will definitely be renting again in the middle of winter🤣
Tika provided me with the highest level of service I could have asked for! All messages were met with efficient communication that made this experience exceed my expectations! The Slingshot was everything I thought it was & more! I'll definitely be back! Thank you, Tika! - Kyle
Smooth ride. The iPhone charge adapter automatically connects as an aux cord which was nice.
This was my first time renting a car through TURO and my experience was stress-free. My son and I received top notch customer service from Dinorah. She was prompt and went out of her way to accommodate us when our flight home was unexpectedly cancelled. The car was everything we had hoped it would be - clean, reliable, comfortable, quiet, and the trunk had plenty of storage space. We had a wonderful vacation in Tucson thanks to Dinorah. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
John was a wonderful host! Very kind and professional. John’s Tesla is fantastic and so much fun to drive. It’s like you are in another dimension. Tesla is the way to go for the future! Thank you dearly!
It coulndnt be any easier to rent a car, period. Friendly, professional, all around pleasant experience.
This is my first time using Turo and this host made my first experience a very easy, convenient, and hassle free car rental. I will never go back to typical car renting from the airport counter!! Whether that's my great host or this great app, I couldn't say... But thank you very much to them both!!
Went for a trip to California from Arizona, and back. Brian delivered the car and picked it up. He was very attentive to our needs and helped if we had questions with the vehicle, as we had never driven a Tesla before. The vehicle was immaculately clean and ready to drive. It was a great trip! Shout out to Tesla for the convenience of charging stations and their interactive mapping to help make the trip so easy. I would definitely rent from Brian, again. This was one of the easiest and best "rentals" I've ever experienced.
This car was incredible to drive on my trip from Tucson to San Diego for a weekend getaway. The top-down feature really sealed the deal during my drive along the coast watching the sunset. The gas mileage was amazing as well!
SS&M provided the best service I've had with Turo. He provided us with the best recommendations around town and helped us with the car drop off. I will use his services every time I come to Tucson!
Perry was great to work with. He brought the car to a hotel near the airport which was very convenient for us. When our flight was cancelled in Kansas City and we had to catch a later one he was in communication with me the entire time and even proposed some alternative ideas in case we couldn't make our flight to Tucson. The car was reasonably priced and saved us a couple hundred dollars over a traditional rental agency. I would have no qualms about renting a vehicle from Perry again.
Car was absolutely fantastic, had a wonderful time touring the beautiful state of Arizona in style. 10/10 would HIGHLY recommend contacting Steve if you want a luxurious vehicle while visiting or taking vacation
Gabino was very flexible even at the last moment. He made sure the car was washed and sanitized. I would rent his car again. He is great
The car was immaculate and filled with gas. Pick up and drop off was easy. I’d rent this great car again.
Meredith and her husband were awesome! She communicated with me right after booking, was very flexible to accept my last minute changes and early return time (due to early morning flight back). Car was clean, very good on gas, so overall if you want an economical transportation from A to B without problems, she is the best. I highly recommend her and will definitely book her car again for my next trip to Tucson in a couple of months.
Very clean car. Sylvia was friendly and helpful. Pickup location was just a little confusing (back Walgreens parking lot). Overall I would rent again.
Diorah was pleasure to work with. Very understanding and prompt with answering messages. The car was very clean and well taken care of. Will definitely contact her whenever I rent a car.
I was a little nervous about renting a car for my first time through Turo. But I hands down could not have had a better experience than the one I did with Stefan. The car was immaculately clean, very fun, fast and enjoyable to drive. Stefan was more than helpful with ensuring I had everything I needed to complete the trip. I would 10/10 rent a car again from Stefan.
James made this experience seamless from the start to the finish! He also provides a car that is clean, fuel efficient, and comfortable. The tinted windows made the drive very relaxing and gave the car an intimate feeling (all while protecting my passenger and I from harmful UV rays). Overall, the car was great. My buddies were amused with the license place, haha! James was flexible with the drop-off time as well (which was requested and arranged via the Turo app). If I need to rent another car in Tucson, I’ll definitely look for James first!
This car was absolutely stunning!!! Such a fun ride, turned a lot of heads 🤩 Would highly recommend anytime your in Tucson! Host was very pleasant to communicate with, he made this experience fun and easy! Can't wait to rent this car again!
After renting the model X and the model Y, the model S seems to be outdated, kids are super disappointed in not having some of the features that the model YNX have, it’s funny but they really like the karaoke app on an hour trip, Model S seems to have old apps, the ride was a little different as well, not sure if it’s because it’s bigger than the model three, but the model three, Took turns really well, Going up Mount Lemmon, where as the model S, I felt had to strap myself in because it was moving me from side to side, getting out of the model S seem to be a small little chore as well, overall great experience! Please send me your referral code so when I’m ready to buy I can use your referral code, I think the best choice for us is the model 3
The car was just what I needed to get around town. Definitely worth the price and would consider the ride again.
Sylvia was awesome , her vehicle was super clean , good on gas , easy to drive, I will be using Turo again and renting from Sylvia again for sure , best trip to Phx I've made in a long time !
I enjoyed driving the S around it had a luxury feel to it and it was nice to not have to spend money on gas. Upon arrival the car was very clean, and Robert explained everything in great detail to me since I've never driven an electric car until now. I would definitely rent it again!!
Fantastic man to work with. Even more fantastic car to enjoy your travel time with.
John was great to work with - friendly, personable, and on-time. Great Tesla, clean, well-cared for, and an overall fantastic experience!
Christian was easy to reach and responsive to queries. His Passat is a comfortable and spacious car that was still frugal with great gas mileage. Highly recommended!
Appreciate the availability of this car during my trip. The car itself drove fine and had great gas mileage. The pickup location was easy to find and instructions were clear. Would recommend to others looking for a quality vehicle rental option!
We really enjoyed Christians car. He is reliable, communicative and very professional. I will for sure use again.
Great host. Super fast to respond, met us at the airport (even a little early when our plane arrived sooner than expected!) and super friendly. Awesome deal on the rental too!
Great Choice. I rented this car for a week and really enjoyed driving it and my family enjoyed being chauffeured around in a little luxury. The ride was very comfortable and had no mechanical issues. The car was also very clean on the inside. 5 stars. Highly recommended.
Damian was a wonderful host and most pleasant ! Car was clean and fully charged at pick up. Driving it was a wonderful experience .
Emma's rental was ideal. The car perfomed well. Emma himself is flexible, communicated well, and responded quickly. We enjoyed his car and it fit 4 people bery comfortably. I highly recommend him and his car as a host car renter. 👍
Emma was very friendly, helpful, and informative as well as professional. The car was gorgeous and clean and extremely efficient on gas. We will definitely be looking him up for our trips back to Tucson!!!
Super attentive, easy process , nice car & never gave me a problem while on my 9 day trip . Thank you fausto will definitely rent again .
Trip was great! John was easy to work with and his Tesla was perfect for our road trip to Sedona and the Grand Canyon!
Incredible communication, easy curb side airport pick up and drop off - I would highly recommend renting from Fausto - five star service!
Victor's Model 3 was perfect and great for us to spend some real time with a Tesla. Victor is incredibly knowledgeable about both Tesla cars and their solar equipment. He was very responsive and gave us a quick training session at pickup and answered all our questions before and after the pickup. We would happily rent from Victor again if we weren't already convinced to buy our own!
Emma was most professional and courteous. The vehicle was spotless, and ran beautifully. Should we need to rent a vehicle in Tucson in the future, we will rent from Emma.☺
The car was great! And it was easy to arrange and Stefan was very easy to deal with. I would 100% rent from him again.
Moises made my first time on Turo so easy. Provided me information about the vehicle ahead of time to make a smooth pick up. Pick up and drop off was easier than expected and way better than traditional car rentals. Thank you Moises!
Dinorah was very friendly and understanding, especially to a young driver like myself. She was able to change her schedule to match my rental needs, which was extremely helpful and kind of her. I highly recommend Dinorah and her vehicle. The car was amazing and clean. Thank you very much!
Awesome car! and very friendly host I would definitely recommend to anyone and will be renting again from Juan in the future!
Robert was very helpful for a first time electric car user. We had an incredible trip and experience.
Tika was punctual and vehicle was as described. We had a blast. Would recommend this host for any vehicle he offers.
This was my first Turo rental and Harry made it easy and awesome! The car was spotless and ready to go when we arrived. And of course, the Tesla was amazing to drive! I definitely plan to rent from Harry again!
Great rental experience. SS&M offered to meet me at the airport upon arrival and departure, which was super convenient and easy. Car ran great.
This was an amazing rental. such a smooth ride and it's really nice not to depend on gas. Robert was very nice to deal with, and he was very flexible with us.
Negin is an amazing host. She saved me and my friend's road trip in more ways than one. The host of the car that he had originally rented from had to cancel due to mechanical issues with the car. I was able to book with Negin only 5 days before my trip began and save the trip. Negin was also extremely helpful at the end of the trip as well when the car unfortunately got a flat tire. She was in touch with me every step of the way while trying to resolve the issue. I definitely would rent from Negin again.
What a great reliable car. Excellent hosts. Wish the AC was a bit cooler but overall would totally rent this car again
Great Communication, great Trip, there was no issues, we had a fun & safe trip with the rental.
Great car, it was the perfect smooth ride for our weekend trip. Dinorah was easy to work with and was flexible when I needed to extend by a day. Will rent from her again.
I had a wonderful time thank you for sharing a reliable comfortable clean vehicle with that took me to my destination. Sylvia was there to assist me and guide me as I borrowed the car from her for my trip.
