Top notch host, flexible and great communication. Thanks for renting and being accommodating!
Car drove fine. Some random items in the back trunk seemed pretty loud when driving, but overall great and thankful Dexter’s car was available. Parking can be hard on that side of town. In my case, I had to return the car early in the morning, so I could not park on the same street as the owner. Owner was cool about it. Car was in good running condition and I know it was within its mileage for oil change. All is well!
Steven was great to work with. Made it easy with super communication. Car was clean and fun to drive...no issues at all. Great value. Will definitely use Steven again next time I'm in Chicago. Highly recommend. Thank you !
Had an amazing experience! I highly recommend him! I would definitely rent from from him again! The car was lovely too! Thank you!
Definitely one of the best host thus far. Extremely informative and easy going. Definitely will do business again
I used the car for my son’s prom,great experience Tianshuang was super nice and pleasant... very beautiful car, looking forward to renting some of his other vehicles, great experience! 5 Stars!!

It was a great experience driving a Porsche very smooth ride and gets lots of attention. Will rent from Andris again.
Quick trip to Indiana. Elina was excellent and very accommodating. The car was spotless and worked flawlessley. Elina explained her car and process very clearly. Elina was very accommodating with my schedule and did pickup and drop off. I would happily rent from her again and recommend her to anyone
Jeffrey is a very pleasant person to work with and any questions I had he answered within minutes. The car was amazing and we really enjoyed it. Thank you for allowing us to use your BMW to take my nephew to prom. I would definitely rent from him again in the future.
Enrico is a super nice guy!! Made my first turo experience amazing!!
Shin was really easy to communicate with and to arrange pickup and drop off. Highly recommend renting with Shin if you want to drive a Tesla 3 Long Range Dual Motor!
Steven is the man to go for your rental needs period. He gets the job done and at a better price than anyone else.
Jeff's Jaguar S-Type is a beauty! During my entire trip I enjoyed looking at the front of the car with the classic grill and leaping Jaguar emblem, the engine has a nice quiet roar to it and it rides super smooth. Suspension and shocks are amazing. And the paint job is magnificent; it kept a waxed look during the entire trip, which looks amazing in red. Would definitely rent this car again! The inside of the car is very clean as well.
Steven made my trip memorable by renting his Mercedes to us. I highly recommend renting from him. Very nice guy who goes out of his way to make sure your renting experience is flawless.
The ride is convenient and suited my purpose well. The communications from owner were very clear and he was very flexible in adjusting to our requests. Overall, a great experience.
This was a great rental and return. Simple and easy to work with.
Jay is quick to respond to messages and provides detailed instructions. Highly recommended!
I had an amazing trip, had attend a training at Madison, with convenient pick and drop along with flexible timing made a worthwhile trip.
Sergiu and yes wife were very great, the car was very great also very smooth ride love it 💞💕
Great communication and clear details and instructions. Great car, clean, and enjoyable
Excellent communication, easy to follow instructions on where to pick up and return the car. The car itself was better than the last rental i got from Enterprise, and it had I-Pass, unlike Enterprise's standard rental :)
Had a great experience renting David's car. He was very attentive and flexible. Would definitely rent again from him.
Nice clean car, Good trip, good communicatioon with Steve
Presto was very accommodating and friendly. The car was exactly as needed. Thanks again man
Great first experience renting on Turo. Matthew made it super easy and was quick to answer any questions I had. The Tesla was a blast to drive!
Lance is awesome to work with. Quick to reply and his cars are great! I always check to see if I can rent from him first.
It is a pleasure to cooperate with Elina. We want to say thank you and recommend her for everybody. It’s super easy to deal with her! She is very professional
Steven was an amazing host from start to finish. He communicated with me before the trip ended to assure everything with was scheduled as plan, pickup and drop off was an ease, and more importantly provided an incredible car that drove amazing and with luxurious style. I will definitely use Steven’s services next time I am in the area.
Eric was a great communicator and made my second ever Turo trip and even bigger believer in the platform. Would happily recommend renting any of Eric’s cars any day.
I use Uber and rentals all over the place. This is the BEST experience I have had. I will only use Elina's cars if I am in Chicago. I highly recommend it.
Michael and Natalie are such great guys. I accidentally locked the car with the keys inside and they helped me within 10 minutes. Also, I got late to return the car due to lots of rain and traffic on the road and they were very flexible with the returning time, I just had to extend my time period in the app. Thank you for your help and hope to book another trip with you guys. Take care.
Thank you Will. Excellent communication and accurate and prompt service as explained in pick up and drop off of car. I will definitely book with Will in the future!😀
The excellent service and communication exceeded my expectations! Will definitely recommend and rent from Christophe again!
Varsha was very flexible and quick to reply! Great turo experience
Renting from Derrick was smooth and easy. His turn around response time was efficient and speedy. I will definitely rent from Derrick again.
Christophe was very professional, thorough, and very welcoming. This was my first time dealing with TURO & of course, I was skeptical at the beginning. However, Christophe made my experience amazing, also him being a VERY nice business man definitely made my experience AMAZINGLY GREATER. I would recommend Christophe to friends & family.. Thank you Christophe for making my very 1st experience an absolutely Beautiful one!!😃
Elina was so helpful and so kind! She made my trip excellent and worthwhile. She was very flexible, easy to communicate with and very patient!
Communication is really good and convenient, the car is small so it’s very easy to drive around! First time Turo experience and it was amazing! The only problems is the owner requires to wash the car and vacuum it before returning but when picked the car it wasn’t clean at all. But I did clean anyway. After all, it was a good experience! The owner is super helpful!!
Rafael was the best host! Super accommodating, beautiful well kept car, and was so easy to communicate with. I highly recommend using Rafael to all my out of town friends. You will love how easy he makes the whole process.
Another seamless trip with Tessa's Prius. Thoroughly professional.
Victoria is a very nice person to rent from, highly recommended!
Everything was very good. Only two things to note: the headlights are relatively dim, so we had to use the high beams when it was completely dark outside and the amount of miles available to us made our road trip a lot more comfortable
Yitong is totally cool. The Tesla is awesome. My next car is a Tesla.
Fatimah was a very gracious host and the car is amazing. It's a black S series and she has added some beautiful black rims. Very cool. Car is very powerful and drives like a super tanker. As I like to say the S class is a car everyone should drive in their lifetime at least once.
Very easy pickup and drop-off. The car drove great and Robert was responsive to all questions I had. I would definitely consider using it again.
Michael's car was fun to drive and my two kids had a great time riding around "looking cool." There's a reserved garage space for the car, so pickup and return were both a breeze.
Annelle was very easy to communicate with on the day of pick up. The location is safe, and the car was pristine! Would highly recommend, and will absolutely come to her again.
Was very great at responding and very convenient! Willing to change the trip and very nice. Would recommend highly!
Erik made great efforts to work with my odd travel times. And his car was a joy to drive!
Not an amazing car, but with 1500 miles before charges and a low rate it's a good deal. It's a little worn, but had no mechanical issues. All in all a good ride for the price. I'd rent again.
Oscar is friendly, professional and accommodating. The car was perfect for my summer day trip! Great gas mileage, clean and smooth ride. Would definitely rent again.
It was my first time renting a car through Turo but it was really easy. Christiaan is communicative and both pickup and return was hassle free. The car is really easy to drive around town and very cheap. Would definitely recommend!
Jeff made everything so convenient communicated very well I'm looking forward to renting again from Jeff.
The trip was great! Car was clean, smooth and very convenient, especially if you’re in downtown. Sade was great with communication and my whole trip was effortless. Highly recommended!
Great communication back and forth. The car was beautiful and cleanliness. I highly recommend for anyone to rent this car with her. Top 10 score!
Tianshuang’s Audi was perfect for us, and nobody could beat his price for the quality. He has an iPhone hookup for music and a phone holder so you can put on Google Maps. He made it super easy to pick up and return, and it’s not a super crowded section of downtown so it’s easy to drive in and out of.
Amazing rental experience!! Elina was an awesome host!!! I’ll be renting from her every time I’m in town!
The ran great and Nathanial was awesome. The A/C was the bomb..it was very hot and the car was very comfortable... My wife loves A/C and it worked beautifully
Eric offered crystal clear communication and his vehicle was in very good working order. Made for a smooth and successful trip to the Chicago area. Would not hesitate to use again - thanks Eric!
The car was excellent but equally important was dealing the owners (Tunje and Abbey). I highly recommend them!
Alexis is awesome she was super friendly and very professional
The BMW was amazing it drives like a champ I would rent it again thanks Brian.
The Scion got great gas mileage and was perfect for my triathlon road trip! Christiaan was very responsive to setting everything up, and it was super easy to get the car and return it. I would rent this car again for a trip. Also, it was nice that he had a place for my cord to charge my phone and a stand to hold my phone to check on directions.
Derrick was very professional and made the whole experience easy. Thank you !
Great transaction all around. Would definitely recommend Eric to anyone else.
I rented Michael’s car for a month and everything went great. Easy pickup & return and seamless renting experience overall. I highly recommend renting his cars!
Great vehicle and the convenience of the Midway Airport pickup and drop off was ideal. Clean fun to drive.
