Paul was a great host. Very responsive and was very professional and polite. Previous rental got canceled due to total loss with another customer. This really helped in the time of need. SUV was great on gas and was very suitable for me and my guests. Thanks Paul and if anyone is in need of a vehicle in Cincinnati, I recommend this one. Go Pack Go lol
Paul was super flexible and accommodating when our flight got super delayed and pushed back our car pick up time. The car was in great shape and it was a seamless trip overall.
Thank you. They saved my trip with a last minute rental when my other one fell through. Very communicative and understanding. Great people.
Brittany’s car was perfect for our little vacation. Everything we could have wanted or needed in a rental car!
Adeen made it easy and had a back up plan when our schedule did not align with his. This was our first time using Turo, and it went smoothly. There was an electric glitch that made the car send out multiple false warnings (tire pressure gauge sensor, etc.) . I contacted Adeen and he responded IMMEDIATELY. He mentioned that everything was OK mechanically, but there was an electrical issue that he had thought was resolved. He mentioned that he would drop off a different car if we wanted, but we trusted him. The car worked great - from Cincinnati to NC and back. After our trip, Adeen had us meet him a few blocks away from the drop off at the Honda dealer to correct the problem. I highly recommend.
This was so much better than renting a car. I loved picking out what I wanted. It was as pictured. Ran smoothly. Had perks like CarPlay. Good gas milage. The best part was that it was delivered and picked up from my home exactly on time. So so easy. Worth every penny. Would choose again.
Amazing car, amazing host. Good on gas and roomy. Would recommend if your visiting Cincinnati
The car ran perfectly for my trip! Great gas mileage and a comfy ride. Brittany was a super host as well....I would rent from her again!
Isaiah was very helpful as this was my first time renting. The vehicle was nice and easy to handle for the trip. I would definitely recommend it.
Car was great (very spacious) and trip was enjoyable. It was easy to pick and drop car from Tanisha
We had such a fantastic experience with Aaron and the Model Y. The vehicle was pristine and an absolute pleasure to drive. Aaron is an incredible host, very kind, and all messages were answered immediately. Can’t wait to rent again!
The service was A-1! The vehicle was awesome! Rented it for my son's birthday and it really made his day! Thanks again.
Larry communicated well and was super accommodating! I requested an extension and he was very prompt in responding to it! Would absolutely recommend renting from him. Beautiful, clean vehicle.
Daniel was a great host. He made the process easy. Receiving the car and giving it back was at a great location. The vehicle is brand new in tip-top shape. He is at the top of my list on renting vehicles.
One of the cleanest cars I’ve ever rented! Experience from start to finish was amazing and the Model Y was so much fun to drive. I’m in love! Lol
Clean, crisp, fresh and luxurious SUV that definitely is a head turner. Great automobile with an owner that truly takes care of his ride. Thank you for the opportunity/honor to drive the GV80. I liked it so much I am thinking about buying one for a vacation house. I’ll be in touch for our next trip.
i thought it was a little odd when my iPhone came up with a notification that i was being followed by AirTag when that was not disclosed to me. I understand them tracking the car, but not mentioning it was the weird part. Other than that great service.
LaToya was great at communication, and the vehicle was great to drive. Definitely planning to use the service when back in the city.
Manuel was great to work with. Very nice vehicle and very easy to work with. Definitely recommend
First of all let’s just say that I’m in love with this car! The entire process was smooth like the ride, Taresa was very nice, great customer service, above and beyond. I highly recommend this Taresa’s Lexus!

Taresa was very friendly! Pick up and drop off was easy and convenient. The car was clean and drove great! 5 stars all around!
Paul and his wife are extra kind and the Jeep was amazing. It def made my trip for an audition efficient! I think as long as you communicate things will go well, Paul's response time is superb! Def recommend and thanks again for the rental!

Taresa was Pleasant to work with, the car was very clean. We will use Taresa again.
Daniel’s Ford Escape is a really good, well maintained vehicle, as good as new. Daniel was thoughtful in including tools like jumper cables, a spare and also cleaning supplies. The car drives really well in the city and on interstates. The cargo space is substantial as well. Daniel was helpful during the checkin and checkout processes. Would definitely recommend this Ford Escape for anyone going on long drives
Omg!!! The vehicle was perfect. My host was awesome and prompt. Would definitely use him again. Thank you sooo much!!!!
Everything went great. Lanell was very helpful and polite. We had another host cancel on us the night before the trip and Lanell stepped up and really made sure that our trip could still be a success. The Enclave was very nice and clean, ran smoothly. I would definitively rent with Lanell again, and highly recommend him to others.
Easy pickup, Aaron was communicative and helpful. The whole experience was akin to a boutique rental car company.
Great rental! Car performed perfectly and Aaron was super easy to deal with even with our changing schedule. Thanks Aaron, looking forward to the next trip.
Renae was awesome! She is so friendly and has excellent communication regarding the rental. The jeep was everything that was promised. It was super clean and she even had special touches of bottles of water and mints waiting for us. She was timely with the arrival of the jeep and even allowed us to be one hour early to help with our schedule. We would definitely rent from her again!
We enjoyed the rental. The car was in excellent condition and the professionalism displayed by Ratyna was amazing. She was very friendly and accommodating. Would highly recommend renting from Ratyna and our family will definitely use her services again!!

Colbert was great to work with! The car was very clean and ran great! Would definitely rent from him again!
Had an amazing experience renting Anwar’s car. He provided an excellent service, communication, and made the process go as smooth as possible. Would definitely recommend renting from Anwar 10/10. Will be using his services when I’m back in town.
He was more than accommodating. He met me at a different location due to time constraints and was very prompt. Car was very clean and in good running order. Very easy to communicate with. Highly recommend.
Very smooth transaction. Latoya responded very quickly and professionally. The car was clean and exactly as described. I would definitely rent from this host and this vehicle again.
Quick pick, and a great ride. Everything was clean and explained thoroughly. Would rent from Aaron again!
Had a great trip in Anwar’s Rogue! Car is super clean & luxury. The car has so many neat features. More importantly, Anwar was AMAZING to work with! He’s extremely accommodating & made check in & check out a pleasant experience. I will DEFINITELY be doing business with him again!
Very nice people. They dropped the car off to me and it was very clean. We got back a little earlier than expected and they met me on very short notice to get the car back. We would definitely rent from them again!
It was an absolute pleasure to work with Larry. He is so gracious and friendly. The car is perfect. Impeccable condition inside and out. I consider Larry not just someone I'll be renting a car from...I consider him a friend!
The trip was great! The host was fantastic. This was my 1st time using Turo trying something different other than the traditional car rental places. Will use again.
Colbert made the overall Turo experience a great one. Excellent response, communication and instructions made the process easier. The car was in A+ condition the drove perfect . I would definitely recommend renting from Colbert any time.
Anwar was very professional and friendly. The vehicle was very clean and had a tank full of gas. He answered all my questions regarding the cars controls. I would definitely rent from him again!
Anwar was so understanding and made sure to check in with me throughout my entire trip ! He responded fast anytime I had a question . I definitely will be booking again . Thank you so much
Adeen has great communication, very accommodating, and helpful. Will rent from him again.
This was my first time using Turo, great response with everything. Colbert was wonderful and always answered all my questions and there were many. I will definitely use this service whenever I need to rent a car.
It was my first trip with Turo, Kimberly was very helpful. Awesome car , would definitely rebook with her .
Lanell was very nice and professional. He was accommodating and I will definitely use his services to rent from again.
Rented the car for 3 weeks and very happy with it. It’s in excellent condition and very clean. The car battery died on me but Nicole arranged everything with Autozone to change it. And she compensated me for that day. I appreciate the gesture. Thank you Nicole… and hope to see you again.
