About Island Rides

www.islandrides.rent We ONLY rent through Turo; they provide our insurance. Chat with us on Facebook & Instagram: @islandrides.rent Email: info@islandrides.rent Discount codes? I recommend the Honey google chrome app/extension: https://www.joinhoney.com/ref/qyyqge Hi! I am Jaren, Environmental Scientist, entrepreneur & top Turo Power Host in Southwest Florida. We started this with one car that was sitting around collecting dust and fell in love with the idea quickly and created Island Rides! My family lives in Fort Myers and now have many cars for rent on Turo. No fears, we are veterans on Turo. :) We run this as a small family business (Island Rides) and take great care of our cars and customers! Our cars are available 24/7, well maintained, used specifically for Turo and are cleaned and disinfected prior to each rental. We will never cancel a booking with you because our rides are used only for Turo. Now offering cars in Gainesville (University of Florida) area! Go Gators!

Good, clean little car. Great price and easy to work with. Only thing with the car was the TPMS light was in but all the tires were full. Most likely a faulty sensor. Communication was good. I did ask about trip extension and didn’t receive a reply, but later found my answer in the previous informational texts. Also asked to be met in arrivals instead of the parking garage to avoid a few dollars fee but was declined. Overall a good experience, gave 4 out of 5 due to to the above mentioned.

I want to say first that the people were great at Island Rides. They Quickly Read and Respond to all your questions no matter the complexity of it. It sucks that I had to pay 50$ fee everyday for being a young driver. Us young people dont have a lot of money to be throwing away like that. Now here is my personal opinion on the car itself. Nothing to do with the business its just the car. There are 3 things I want to point out. The car does not have Cruise Control which sucked horribly because my shins would become cramped after 50-70 miles on the Interstate and I would have to pull over and take a break. I had to drive 250 miles in total round trip so it was a struggle to say the most. The second thing is its a very poor insulated vehicle. You hear everything outside when driving 70-75 MPH on the Interstate. So crank the music up. The third thing that was kind of scary and annoying was that the car would vibrate and sometimes fight back at the steering wheel. Maybe it needs an alignment or new tires? I dont know. BUT I do want to say that Bluetooth Helped a tremendous amount. The AC was super cold. I like driving with it freezing. And the Gas Mileage was perfect. 35 MPG at least for me when I was driving. Also not expensive to fill up either about 17$ for a Tank Refill. But Overall Great Trip. Nice People.

Since Jaren is one of the top Turo hosts in the area he was very easy to work with. He took great care if the car while he had it and I would have no problem renting to him again.
