Tesla Model S 2018

Benson is a gem. Very welcoming and genuinely a nice guy. I'd struggle to think how he could have improved the experience. The car was ready in the driveway and Benson even changed his password in case I wanted to use the Tesla app (which came in handy to see the charge status of the car). He took the time to explain me some of the intricacies of the car before I took off - which made the time with the car that much more enjoyable. The Tesla was in great condition considering the number of kilometers. The car has obviously been cleaned and washed prior to pick up. I'd definitely recommend Benson and his Tesla and I'd strongly consider renting it again next time I'm in Ottawa.

The “Beast” was amazing. Driving it was the most relaxing thing I ever. When you never have driven one .. Ashok is a great person. He is a nice person he made sure the car was SANITIZED yes i said it in capital because not everyone who rents their cars go an extra mile especially during these times . Thanks for letting me rent the “Beast” given only short notice. The car was very clean and well taken care off. No issues on the handles and very good on gas mileage on this car. I enjoy the trip on this. Its a 10star rating

Shadee is a very kind host. Her car is well maintained, very good on gas and super clean. I love driving Toyota Prius. It’s a good car for couples . Her mileage cap is very flexible (1,200 km free) even though you might not need that many miles. If you ever pass by Ottawa, choose Shadee’s car whenever it is available for us. Very good rate, and friendly person. It is my first experience with Turo and I’d say I love it !!!Thanks Shadee, you made our trip a great one . Until next time !
