Daneisha was very helpful and responded immediately to my last minute reservation request upon landing in Columbia, SC. The vehicle was above and beyond what I needed for the trip and the price was better than any rental company from the airport. I would recommend this vehicle and host to anyone in need of a car when in Columbia, SC.
Rental process was great and fast the pick up was quick and professional I will be using the app and Joshua again!!
Matt made sure he accommodated us when no other local car rental companies were available. It was our first wedding anniversary and the Range Rover was dependable, nice and classy for our trip. Matt was very quick to respond and answered all questions. Thanks so much
Brittany was very nice and sweet and helpful. She made this smooth and hassle free rental process. Will recommend and be renting again 😊
Amanda makes the rental process very easy. She is open and honest about the vehicle and I had no issues during the entire ride. 10/10 would recommend.
This is our second time booking this vehicle and this time was just as pleasant as the first. Definitely our family’s go to rental if it’s available.
First time using the app. I LOVED THE CAR.!!! Clean smooth ride. My kids loved the DVD player . I will MOST DEF RENT AGAIN .Joseph was punctual and kind and made me feel at ease and welcome. 5StarTrip🏽
One of the easiest smooth rental ever! Travis is an amazing host! I rented the Ford Explorer and I’m in love with that car very clean and smooth riding no problems at all ! Highly Recommended! Thanks Again Travis !
Kelsito communicated excellently made our first rental from Turo an great experience. Ride was very comfortable and spacious .
This was my first time using Turo and Stephanie made it a great experience. Picking up and dropping off the car was easy. The jeep is very nice, roomy and comfortable. I had to make some adjustments on my trip days and Stephanie was friendly, responsive and accommodating, she made the whole process a breeze. If I ever need to rent a car again I will be booking with Stephanie!
She’s great and attentive to your vacation needs. Thanks again. Will definitely rent again.
My first time using Turo and the check in was a little foreign to me, but once I got in there it was flawless!! Phylisser was very kind, open in her communication, and the car drove perfectly! I ended up having to travel farther than expected on my trip, but the car was so great in mileage it was worth it!
Chris was very hospitable, professional & they included some courtesy snacks for our trip! I’d definitely book again.
Great trip! Travis was very accommodating and the car is clean and in great condition.
I highly recommend renting from Yusef. The car was clean and had no problems. I will definitely use his service again in the near future.
This Fiat is fantastic! It cute and comfortable with a wonderful sound system, and rides great. Yusef is very pleasant and professional, and I'll surely rent again.
Such a great car! Good on gas, spacious, smooth driving, and was really clean when I got it. Next trip, I hope this car is available because I would love to book with her again.
My wife and I rented for 4 days for a trip to Charlottesville VA from Columbia SC. It was our first experience with a Tesla, so there was much to learn. Our car's owner was readily available when needed and always helpful and kind. I found the vehicle amazing and many times one step ahead of us. I find myself wanting to purchase a Model Y, but will wait until have experienced other models as well. Trip planning was somewhat different in that charging station locations take you off a straight route sometimes. However it is not enough to cause a major delay. Looking forward to seeing more electric vehicles on the road than combustion engine vehicles.
I was searching the nearest Enterprise Rental office when an ad for Turo popped up. After a price comparison it was a no brainer- I saved 15-20% through Turo and had a more personal and enjoyable experience than I would have through Enterprise or any other agent. Platforms like Turo only work if the host package is right, that is, good value, great communication and flexibility. Renting through Phylliser was all of these things. The Honda CR-V was the perfect road trip car- it's a touring edition, so super comfortable with plenty of room and great gas mileage. I would most definitely rent from Phylliser in the future.
Doreen & Kenneth are the best. Priced fair. The car handled beautifully. Full gas tank and very clean. They even had phone chargers in the car for our convenience. They made pick up and delivery hassle free. I was so impressed and highly recommend them to any member. Thank you both.
RENTING WAS A BREEZE. THEY WERE VERY PROFESSIONAL AND I WOULD DEFINITELY RENT AGAIN
It was very easy renting from Kelsito. He answered all of my questions right away. I would rent from him again.
Very nice car! Yusef responds quickly and is very kind. Will definitely book again.
I enjoyed working with Yusef!! He was flexible and understanding!! Will be reaching out again and using him again!!! 💪🏾💪🏾💪🏾
Car was very clean and fun to drive. Host was very helpful and great with communication.
Great customer service and definitely will use this provider again. We had a delay with our vehicle pickup and he switched to an upgraded Challenger 2022 at no additional cost!
Michelle was very kind and give responsive to text. I loved the 2019 Nissan kick. Drove nicely and great on gas!!
Great host! Communication was great and she was super nice and understanding
Car was well kept and drove smooth. No problems. Travis's communication was fast and very professional.
This was the best experience I've had with a rental. The owner was kind enough to bring the vehicle to my location at the time of my reservation. I appreciated the cleanliness of the vehicle and all the nice features that were available. When I needed to extend out my reservation a few hours and had an issue requesting the extension through the app, Mrs. Long was eager and happy to assist me to get the extension set up. She was very kind and helpful. I will definitely be renting from Mr. Long again in the near future.
Yusef was professional and quick to my responses. I had no problems with my reservations, the vehicle exceeded my expectations, very clean and reliable. His customer service skills are wonderful and I’ll be looking forward to using him again in the future. Please don’t hesitate to book with him, you won’t be disappointed.
Loved this Kia for our family trip! The host was extremely accommodating! Very nice and spacious SUV!
Great ride! Very clean. Pick up and drop off was very convenient. Great communication.
Stephanie and her husband are awesome hosts. This was my first experience and she was extremely accommodating, nice, and a pleasure to work with. It's true that she is reachable anytime you need her. I would book her again!
Everything went smoothly . Will forsure book again in the future. Thank you
Host Mike was great, gave detailed instructions and prompt to reply. It was our first time using Turo and he he made it a very easy and pleasant experience Car was clean and just what we needed. I would definitely book again next time I in SC.
Wow! Marley is about the most fun rental car I’ve ever had. I would love to drive her again; and makes me want to get one for myself! Yusef was extremely helpful and accommodating to deliver the car to me and allowed me to cut the trip short without an issue.
Stephanie was extremely nice and helpful. The vehicle was clean both inside and out. The car drove amazing and she was very accommodating. Thank you again for being so hospitable.

Phylliser made the whole experience a great one. The check in and check out process was very convenient and fast. She was extremely helpful and responsive, and provided easy instructions. The car rides great! Very comfy and fancy. I would definitely recommend for the future.
Leave downtown Columbia behind as you travel east to Polo Rd. This easy cruise takes you along the edge of sprawling Sesquicentennial State Park and past lovely upscale neighborhoods. Stop at the park for a hike or to cool off in Sesquicentennial Lake.
For a close-up view of the Congaree River, take Beckham Swamp Rd, which heads out into stark fields and swamplands before looping back around on the edge of the river. It’s a nice place for a relaxing country drive, no matter whether in summer or winter months.
For a drive with beautiful lakeside views, head up to River Rd on the banks of Lake Wateree. As you head north toward the Rocky Creek Trail (a great hiking spot), you’ll pass lots of opportunities for boating and fishing.
