The car, the service, and the app were all great on this trip. I am a first time user and highly recommend this over standard car rental companies. And I highly recommend this particular renter as well.

1st time using Turo. It went perfectly. Good vehicle, easy pickup, easy drop off, very responsive car owner via the messages in the app. The big rental companies had no cars so I found Turo, but this was actually much better.

Douglas was great to work with and flexible when we needed to make a last minute change because of a flight cancellation. His pick up and delivery service at the airport was super helpful and less than it would cost for an Uber ride to pick up the car. We rented his Jeep Cherokee and it was a great value for the price - much better than we could find at a rental agency. I give him 5 stars and would definitely recommend him.

Awesome people and service. The car was nice with great features. Pick up and drop was much more painless than regular car rental companies in my experience. This is the way forward for car rental for me.

Renting from Berlin City was awesome! So much smoother and easier than using a rental car agency! Southwest Airlines changed our flight times both out and back and this caused us zero issues. Berlin City was extremely accommodating and always replied to my messages promptly. Highly recommend. A++++++++++

I can’t recommend Jeff’s car and overall customer service enough. This was our first time in Maine and first time using Turo- Jeff and his team made it convenient and straightforward. I’m so happy we decided to try Turo over other car rental companies. I’d highly recommend Jeff’s cars and will look forward to a return trip where we can rent from him again.

Jeffrey resolved a concern we had with our vehicle in a prompt and professional manner. He and his partner Glenn were a pleasure to work. I recommend him highly should you choose to rent from a private individual in the Portland Maine area.

Was not sure what to expect - but Berlin City Rentals made our first Turo trip exceptionally easy. The car was ready and waiting right at parking garage outside of the terminal & the return process was equally easy. Would absolutely use this option again to get around Portland!

This is our first experience with Turo due to the shortage of rental cars in Portland. We had never heard of it before. Mike was extremely helpful with explaining everything. He was quick to respond and really helped us enjoy our trip in Portland by picking up the car at our air BNB. His 4Runner was clean, safe, beautiful, and fun to drive. We would recommend Turo and Mike to anyone. Perfect experience!!

Third time return customer here! My boyfriend and I drove up to Acadia National Park, hiked some of the many trails the park has to offer, including the Beehive Trail (thrilling, even for someone who's deathly afraid of heights like I am), checked out Thunder Hole, and topped off our trip with an amazing pizza lunch and killer views at the top of Cadillac Mountain. We had the time of our lives and what made it even better was that we didn't have to worry about getting around because we KNEW we were driving a vehicle we could rely on. Jeff's rentals are sturdy, smooth, and easy to book. What's more, you feel like you're talking to a a good friend when making arrangements with Jeff. Whether you're planning transportation for a business trip or your next vacation, forget traditional car rental companies and reach out to your new friend Jeff!

From the recommendation of hotel staff to use Turo to the end of our trip at drop off with Chris, this was a total win! Clean, well running vehicle with lots of helpful recommendations for things to see and do from Chris made our day smooth and enjoyable. The price of the rental and availability erased all the challenges we’d had with car rental services during what they report as a hiccup from the pandemic.

There were literally no rental cars available in Portland, ME when we flew in for a funeral. It's early Oct. and the area is flooded with tourists coming up to see the autumn colors. Zoran was our angel and saved us by having this car available. It worked out so perfectly, as he was able to meet us at the airport. The car was immaculately clean, and Zoran was so nice to work with. Two days later, he met us at the airport again to pick the car up, making the entire transaction easy. I would definitely rent from him again.

Berlin City Rentals is fantastic, especially in its excellent, friendly communication. All my questions and concerns were promptly answered. If any problems arose, the company was always flexible in giving me options to make everything smooth. The car itself was spotless and well maintained. I will always use this company through Turo when I travel to the Portland area.

This was my first time using Turo and I have to say it was a fantastic experience as a result of Berlin City Cars!! If you’re contemplating whether or not to use them I highly recommend. It was way easier and better than renting from one of the big rental car companies. Much more personal via the text message within the app as well as the car being spotless and sanitized when we received it. Highly highly recommend the use of Berlin city Rentals!! Thanks so much for the hospitality! We will be repeat customers when we re-visit family in Maine!

Quinn’s Cadallic Escalade was a PERFECT FIT for my family of six adults touring New England this past weekend. The car was clean and a pleasure to drive. Quinn also assisted us in securing a vehicle to return home during the Southwest Airline debacle this past weekend where all our flights were cancelled. I highly recommend Quinns car should you be in the Maine area. Thank you again Quinn for the caddy rental and the assist to return home. Bill

Jeffrey was really responsive and helpful throughout the trip. He also offered to provide recommendations. The car was available and on time. It ran just fine and we had no issues throughout the trip. The one minor thing I want to mention is the profile states he follows the enhanced cleaning and disinfection practices. However, he texted me to prep the car just in case a renter used it right after me. I asked if I was supposed to sanitize the car and he said no. Otherwise the trip was great and I’d use it again. I would just wipe it prior to use next time if I had known someone had possibly used it right before me with no cleaning in between
