The city center in downtown Houston

New frontiers in Houston

As one of the most diverse cities in the country, Houston has a lot to offer on many fronts, including fantastic food from every corner of the world, enthralling museums, and beautiful outdoor spaces where you can do everything — enjoy a movie or settle into an al fresco reading room.

Make your way through the largest city in Texas, and bask in the scenery of the nearby Gulf of Mexico and Texas Hill Country.

Houston favorites

Houston is chock full of well-designed green spaces and truly mind-blowing eats, so plan your day trips to properly sample these gems.

Buffalo Bayou Park

This 160-acre park is an impressive respite from the bustling city, and is a beautiful place to rent boats or bikes. You can also tour and see shows in the strange, awesome underground cistern.

Crawfish buffet

Crawfish is no joke in this Gulf-side town. You can’t go wrong with the classic table-top spread with corn cobs, but don’t miss the spicy Viet-Cajun style unique to Houston.

Space Center Houston

At the Space Center, you can not only see a large collection of moon rocks and spaceship exhibits, you can also tour NASA facilities where astronauts train.

This is very RARE find. When it comes to finding a rental, I rely heavily on reviews and I gotta give thanks to the previous reviews AND of course to Dave. From the day I decided on this car, I have had excellent communication with Dave with very simple and clear instructions. He was very quick to respond and make sure you feel comfortable. The car was very clean too!!! This, by far, has been the best and easiest rental experiences I've had so far and Dave has earned another loyal customer. 👏

The car was definitely a eye. I love how clean and stylish the vehicle is. Great communication and I will definitely rent again.

Elliots BMW was a great experience. It’s already parked at the airport which makes it easy to pick up. There’s a parking fee just so you’re aware but that’s better than trying to coordinate with a driver on picking up the car. The car was super nice and clean and came with a full tank. There were no issues with the car. I would rent his car again. He’s great at hosting rental cars and as renters we should return the car clean, filled, and as good as we found it. Thanks Elliot for an awesome experience.
Riatan U.- 26 September 2021
Nice ride, I enjoyed the car very much great gas saver. Elliot was very responsive when I called or texted. I will rent with you again when I come back to visit. Thanks again 😊

Hit the road

Houston is huge and there’s no shortage of attractions and amusements to enjoy, but book a car on Turo and leave the busy city behind to hit the hills, the beach, and other awesome Texas cities.

Galveston

Only an hour out of the city, Galveston is the hot beach spot where locals revel in long seaside days with great BBQ, and even horseback riding.

Austin

Known for its rocking live music scene, it’s worth the three-hour drive to get your dose of Austin weird, more barbeque and bars, and some killer swimming holes.

Brazos Bend State Park

In less than an hour’s drive, you can be hiking or biking in nature at this impressive state park. It’s also home to an observatory where you can stargaze on clear nights.

Isreal was great and the car was even better! We had to come to Houston at the last minute for a funeral and he met us at the airport and was flexible when we were leaving. He is an awesome host! The car was awesome as well, the perfect stylish state-of-the-art SUV for our trip. It comfortably held my family of 6 plus cargo! The car is so automated it was doing things before I even thought of them! Amazing! This was my first time using Turo and I am very happy with it so far. Much less hassle than regular car rental companies.

This was my first time ever going through Turo. Let me tell you how amazing Lawrence was. With my flight being delayed, he kept excellent communication, was very understanding. He was on time with pick up and drop off. He even offered to be there early then scheduled pick up time. Which was so nice of him. Made this vacation of renting the car smooth as can be. The car was excellent condition. Everything as promised. He was so helpful with everything. I’m definitely renting from him again.

Tesla Model X 2016

Jason made everything right during our trip. We of course enjoyed driving a Model X during our long trip to Texas, and even though it was AP1, it was still great to be able to sit back, relax, and let it drive for us as we enjoyed the country side. We had a few minor issues with the vehicle while we were there, but as mentioned, Jason made it right as quickly as possible, hence the five stars. As always, Tesla and their mobile service was able to come out and get things taken care of, and this host saw to making that happen, even where we were staying, which was hours away from where we picked up the car. We have 7 people in the car, with all of their luggage, and we even had to extend our stay for another 10 days, and Jason was extremely accommodating! Not to mention, being electric, our total cost was extremely low, as the supercharging was included here as well! We were able to charge for free, and so there was no fuel cost either. This was great, and kept our costs down to just the rental. Rent from Jason, he'll take care of you. Anything we needed, he was right there, and kept in contact with us with phone and text, right away. Even once our trip needed to be extended, he made another vehicle available to us for another few days, truly an amazing host. The vehicle was clean, well kept, and well maintained, and he didn't hesitate to take care of anything we needed, plus he wasn't one of those hosts that was like "oh no, I see some sand on the carpet, that'll be another $200 cleaning fee". Nothing like that, super easy going, but at the same time, on top of everything. I will rent from him any time I'm in Houston, hands down. Rent from Jason, he'll take care of you, 100%.

Dodge Nitro 2010

Justin’s Nitro was perfect for our family of four. We took the Nitro to Bolivar for a family trip and the SUV was a perfect size for all of our bags with enough room to stretch out for the long drive. The Nitro ran smoothly on the Highway and around town and got surprisingly great MPG. Pickup and dropoff at Hobby was a breeze and certainly was better than sitting in the lines and hassles that come with a rental car. Plus, the price we paid for our three week trip was significantly less than a rental car. Finally, the communication with Justin was very smooth and he promptly responded to each question we had. The two considerations for anyone thinking about renting this SUV are: 1) no Bluetooth and 2) the cigarette lighter charger worked sporadically. That said, we will definitely rent the Nitro again when we come back to Bolivar next year and highly recommend renting this vehicle if you have a family and are looking for a cost-effective and reliable option with an owner who is very nice and promptly responds to questions. Thanks again Justin!

Fantastic experience in Houston. Had a minor bump in the reservation road, but Prajwal smoothed the issue over nicely. Absolutely loved the car and it’s whip appeal. Gorgeous, head turner, with a powerful engine to boot, and most all amenities I expected out of a luxury vehicle of this caliber. Will definitely consider this Turo experience next time I’m in Houston.

We are so grateful to have found and used Turo for the first time. Our Host Luxury car rental was so kind, and flexible and assisted with all changes. It was a group trip we traveled from AZ to Houston and arrived at different airports at different times and they were so understanding and helpful. They even allowed us to add an extra day when I realized my cousin left the day after me. The check in and check out process was easy and the car was perfect and clean.Thank you for making our first trip with Turo and to Houston so great

Geoffrey was a great host. This was my first time using Turo & was somewhat nervous because I'm used to going to main rental companies with no hassle, but rates were extremely high for a weekend ($500), so I looked into Turo. No regrets. Geoffrey's communication was great and it was a smooth process.

Israel was awesome. We picked up the car at our arrival at the airport clean and ready to roll. His Ford Explorer was exactly what I was looking for our weekend getaway in Houston. At the end of our trip we met at a location near the airport to return the car, and he was kind enough to drive me to my terminal. Definitely won’t doubt to rent with Israel on my future visits. I would totally recommend him. Thanks Israel.

David was absolutely fantastic!! He was very accommodating, and I felt very safe in his vehicle, having my family including a two-year-old and four-year-old for which he had car seats available to use. I’m very thankful for David and he made my time in Houston very stress-free. From baggage claim to the highway, finding the vehicle and getting out of the parking garage was seamless. Return was a breeze as well. I have saved David and this vehicle in my favorites to be my “go to” next time I’m in Houston. It’s a no-brainer, David is the best!

My car had to go in the shop twice in a week…parts back ordered, rush job to get it out when it wasnt completed, etc etc. BMW didn’t have any loaners and there’s not a single rental car available in all of Houston…believe me I called. No one was willing to help or guide us so we found Turo. First time using Turo and I was nervous but Natalie and her husband were so great. Answered every questions, super accommodating, and just amazing. Natalie’s BMW was impeccable, super clean and smooth. Save yourself the hassle of going to conventional car rentals, long lines, paperwork, and the nickel and diming. From start to finish everything, Natalie made everything super easy.. The Kings were the perfect car host and I can’t thank you enough !

It’s actually my first time driving Tesla, and I got used to the gas and brake very quickly. For whoever not drive one before , don’t worry, Diego will go over every little detail for you, and you will be sure enjoying your trip ! The price worths every penny, the car is literally brand new. Self-driving is a must have option and it’s unbelievable. Big thanks to Diego the super host, super cool , passionate, hospitable guy, for sure will rent his car again !

The car initially smelled of cigarette smoke. Thanks for a great first experience Tree!

This was my first time using Turo and from renting from Triple H Tourism and it was a great experience. Triple H Tourism has the best customers service and they made it an overall great experience. I have been using the rental car agencies for over 30 years and I wanted to try Turo for the first time due to my scheduled flight landing so late. My flight ended up being delayed and I did not get to the car to around 2:00 am and they immediately unlocked the car for me and I was off. They responded very quickly to several questions and I plan on using them for all my future trips to Houston. The overall cost was less than all the various rental car rates I received so that was an added bonus !

Kendall was an excellent host! By far the easiest experience I've had renting a vehicle. Our pick up time was 1:00am & our return time a few days later was 5:00am and was executed flawlessly. The Jeep was spotless & had an extra charging cable for various types of phones, hand sanitizer & masks were available in the vehicle. This Jeep rides very nice & was comfortable for long distances. Would definitely recommend!
