SUCH a wonderful car and experience. Derrick is amazing and the car drives like a dream. Will be renting from him when ever I am in Nashville.
Eric is a fantastic host. Picking up at Nashville airport was a breeze. And the car is immaculate and it's quite roomy. Over all a very fun and sporty manual that was perfect for getting around the city. Also, we had some winter weather move into TN during the trip and Eric was quick to offer help or trip modification in case the weather impacted our ability to return the car. Easy and smooth process all around. Highly recommend.
Great car and service!! Loved the rental 100%. I only want this rental from now on for sure.
Excellent service and car ! Tony was an absolute star in everything he did. Pick up was extremely convenient and also saved us when it came to the drop off at the end due to bad weather. The car itself is in immaculate condition and drives fantastic. Highly recommend renting this car to anybody and dealing with Tony was so easy. Thanks Tony !
The best experience I have had renting a car. SG is punctual, attentive, positive, friendly, and responsive. Wish all owners were like him. Beautiful car, looked like it was recently driven off the lot, new.
I made this reservation at the last minute, like within 12 hours before, and Antonio made it happen for me. His prices were cheaper than the car rental company and he had a gas saving vehicle available. Because of my super late reservation and me completing everything in the wee hours of the morning, just hours before the rental was scheduled, Antonio did not provide me with the information needed prior to my arrival, I texted and called him (left a voice message) via Turo, but he did not answer. I was about to get discouraged, but then he returned my call and I explained who I was and the last minute reservation I completed, and Antonio was lightening fast with providing me the information needed to get the vehicle and transportation to the vehicle from the airport! Please note, while I was waiting for a response from Antonio with the information to pick up the vehicle, I was in the correct area of the airport to get on the shuttle and I never missed a shuttle during this time. That's how quickly everything got resolved. I included it in my review because I want others to know they are renting from a person who will make your needs happen even if you make a last minute reservation. I highly recommend Antonio and if I am in the Nashville area again I will rent from him. "The Parking Spot" shuttle at the airport was super convenient and made my trip stress free! Way easier than the pick up and drop off at a car rental company!! Considerate of my time. No lines, and my vehicle was ready when I got there. It is within minutes from the airport so going and returning was super easy, stress free, and uncomplicated! The airport is under alot of construction, maneuvering through the renovations was the most challenging part of my trip. The vehicle was full of gas and I had no issues with the vehicle during my trip. A great gas saver! Highly recommend Antonio!! Reliable, detailed instructions, great prices, and easily transferred to and from the airport.
Teresa is a 5-star host! I moved to town right in the midst of the Nashville explosion that affected communications for days, making it so I needed to rent a car instead of rely on Lyft as I’d planned. Not only did Teresa accommodate my same-day request, she was patient and understanding about the difficulties I had communicating with no phone service, and she offered priceless advice to get me through. The car was clean, maintained, and is a great car for getting around town. Highly recommended!
Easiest process to “rent” a car ever. Super hosts indeed! Don’t hesitate to work with Daniil and Valentina if you’re needing a car in Nashville
Can I first talk about how patient and understanding this gentleman was number 1 he called me to let me know I did not have to take the car to the carwash due to the rain storm that took place the night before and the morning after I had to extend my trip 30 minutes due to a meeting I was in and he was understanding about that he allowed me that extra time needed to get the car back . I really really appreciate that. it was a great experience for my first time
Farrukh was very understanding and reasonable. After I picked up vehicle it had a low tire due to a nail. I took it to discount tire and farrukh made it so it got repaired and taken care of. If i return will definitely rent this veh again.
Redeer was a great host and even dropped the car off to my house. The communication was great and the car was a smooth ride! I'll definitely be renting from him again!
Andy is the man! This was my first time renting through Turo and he was very helpful walking me through the process and worked with me on saving a little money on the rental. Highly recommend!
Beautiful car. Easy pick up and drop off. Andy was great as facilitating a nice trip. Thank you!
Great communication and a great car. Was flexible when we needed a date change. Would definitely rent from him again. Thank you!
Abe was a great and accommodating host. Great car and will definitely rent again, hopefully when it is not a snow storm.
Eric was so easy to work with..no stress involved and responded quickly to any questions I may have had . The car is an amazing little car and gas mileage is the best . Easy driving and well taken care of . Eric definitely deserves a 5 🌟 rating as the process was smooth and stress free.
Rented the car for my dads birthday and it was a fantastic experience that neither him or I will ever forget! Abe was great and so was the car!
The host was great and made my first time experience an amazing one and I would recommend him to anyone and everyone seeking a car rental in the Nashville area thanks again .
Spencer was super easy to work with, even with last minute requests. I'm not in Nashville often, but next time I'm in town, Spencer will be my go-to for car rental
I really enjoyed doing business with my host and the car is amazing. I will be back to rent more cars. The best host ever
Bets host I’ve came across! Made my trip the most memorable yet. I highly recommend! From communication, to making the pick super easy ima most definitely coming back
Daniil was great. The Turo app wouldn’t load and prevented me from checking in on time etc. even when I tried updating the app it wouldn’t work but daniil was understanding and helpful. Car drove great no complaints.
Bradley was the best host I have ever had! Very helpful for us during my first snow storm and did everything he could to help us. Would 1000% recommend booking with him.
He was on time to both drop off and pick up of the car! And super kind! The engine light did come on but there were no problems with the car - may have just been a glitch.
Bevan was a great host with a pleasant and welcoming energy. Great service and the car drives nice. Thinking of getting me one.
Andy was great to work with. Responds quickly to messages and was very helpful. The car was great too! I would hire a car with Andy anytime.
Gustavo was polite, on time and delivered a clean reliable car. The Honda was nice with great gas mileage. Thank you
The VERY BEST . Abe have been great . It’s been at least 2 months and communicating and all have been amazing .
Car was in pristine condition. The pick up and drop off were effortless. Ty for such a great transaction
Meredith had been a top notch host! Car had been immaculately clean and ultra fun to drive
Johnnie and his car are top notch!!! Customer service was definitely on point. If you have an issue or questions he gets back to you right away without hesitation! Definitely far exceeded my expectations! Thanks Johnnie
Vehicle was in great condition upon arrival. Provides thorough, prompt communication. Accommodating. Very willing to offer any assistance needed. I'm very likely to rent again.
Had a flat tire on the interstate. Owner personally came to the scene to give a hand. Terrific experience, and a fun car.
Eric was an amazing host! So quick to respond and very accommodating during our trip! Would definitely come again!
Abe’s mustang was awesome. Super easy pick up near the airport. Great easy communication and a great price on an awesome car!
Using AJ is super easy. The shuttle to and from the airport is convenient. Know that you get what you pay for, the cheap car did what I needed but was not in the best shape cosmetically. With that being said, I will use him in the future for any rental car needs in and out of Nashville Airport
Daniel’s car was great and he was incredibly helpful throughout the process of receiving and dropping off the car! Thanks Daniel!
Renting from Andy was great and very easy!! It was a great pickup/drop off location with street parking! The process was really simple! Andy was super helpful and responded quickly to messages if I had any questions. If you want to try a Tesla out just for fun or because you are interested in buying one sometime, I highly recommend!
Daniel was fantastic and answered all my Tesla questions. The car was very nice to drive. I highly recommend!
Beautiful car and a super smooth transaction. This car is just the right size for getting abound downtown without having parking issues. The sunroof is amazing. Great features and super comfy.
Smooth, easy to drive car, and Derrick was helpful, prompt, and enjoyable to interact with. If anyone is hesitant about using Turo, book with Derrick and he will make sure you have a great experience!
Daniel was great! Very responsive and helpful. He went out of his way to drop off the car to have it ready after my plane landed. The car was clean and in perfect condition
Really appreciate Derek’s friendliness, timeliness, and cleanliness! The car was spotless and everything went very smoothly. He was able to meet me at very convenient locations and was available any time I had questions of concerns. Highly recommend!
I would definitely rent a car from Ibrahim again!!! he’s fantastic and reliable also have good looking cars
Joe and Jen made this holiday car rental another Great experience again this year with the Lincoln! Highly recommend it!
I’ve rented a few cars on Turo now, not for this long term and not a Tesla. Alex was the best case scenario for renting any kind of car on Turo - he went well out of his way on multiple occasions to help me figure the best place to charge and even offered to drive us back home after we dropped the car off. He was incredibly kind and accommodating, there isn’t another car I’ll rent while in Nashville.
I was coming into to Nashville for a training for several days. Renting a car to sit in parking lots for the price traditional rental companies are asking was a waste of money. This was affordable, practical and easy. Very thankful for this car to use for a four day trip. Saved a lot and it worked well. The owner was very helpful. Thank you! I would recommend this host.
I am so glad I went with Turo instead of renting a car. It was so much cheaper, and Derrick was the best. I highly recommend him to anyone traveling to Nashville!
Isaac keeps his car very clean and in excellent running! It’s pretty spacious and very easy driving. The 200 mile limit per day is not very limiting for city driving, you can get a lot done! He was willing to work with me on getting this rental last minute and was more than reasonable about going about it. Isaac is really always a text away and is always at reach! I would definitely rent again.
Bevan was an outstanding host! His vehicle is beautiful and essentially brand new inside and out! His response was always prompt and he ensured the drop off and pick up was seamless! The car was sanitized and he provided complimentary sanitizer. I highly recommend renting from Bevan, the personalized note upon arrival was a nice touch as well! Thank you again Bevan, we hope you had a wonderful Christmas as you made ours much more pleasant traveling with children. Hope your car is available during our next trip!
Dan is an incredible host. He had the car warmed up and ready for me to go in this cold weather. He also helped me extend the rental because of unforeseen circumstances. Thank you so much Dan I appreciate your services. I would definitely recommend renting from him.
Abe is the very best . Communication great and cars are always great . Everything about him is a 10 for me 1-10 10 being the GREATEST.... I’ll definitely keep booking with Abe as long as he’s available
Abe has to be one of the nicest, professional and simply happy human being that I've encountered. I will definitely be back to rent another of his very well kept and desirable cars.
No complaints. Everything was super simple. Car was ready to go as soon as I arrived. I even extended my trip for a couple days. Great protection options as well. This is the place to go. I would recommend my family and friends. Also way cheaper than the rental car places to say the least. 😊
We’re antique BMW owners and while we love the newer cars, we don’t have garage space for one. This scratched the itch. It’s a beautiful car that turns heads, young and old. It is so quick, yet begs to be be driven slowly and enjoyed. The car was clean, JP is a fantastic and friendly host... great experience and we will get it again our next trip to Nashville.
Great service and communication throughout the whole trip! Made my travel super easy and smooth! Would definitely rent the next time I’m in Nashville! They even dropped off and picked up at the airport, no need to find the car in some strange lot or anything, so convenient!
Amazing Experience and host. Amadeus was very professional and went above and beyond to make my trip perfect. Car was very clean and had all the bells and whistles. Highly recommended and will definitely rent again. This was customer service and care at it’s finest!
I had rental plans fall through at the last minute so I had to look for another option on short notice & was very glad Dallas had his car available. I have rented from him before with no issues so I knew I could rely on him again. His car is clean & reliable to get where you need to go. Definitely recommend renting from him. Thank you Dallas for everything!
I’ve rented on Turo 7+ times, all Tesla’s, and this has been my favorite experience yet! Erik is a phenomenal host: pick-up was quick & educational, the car was spotless and sanitized, and during my trip Erik was responsive within minutes when I had a question. I highly recommend anyone looking on Turo to book this Tesla with Erik. You won’t regret it. Thank you, Erik!
The ride was great and very clean and the exchange was very smooth his wife was very easy to talk too about the drop off
Amazing place to pick up. Super easy. Everything you ever want or expect from a Turo owner. Super responsive.
Johnnys car was amazing! My wife and son took it for a very short road trip around Nashville and it couldn’t have gone better. We’re definitely renting this again!
Thanks Mike...great host. Easy rental. Great, clean car and fun to drive.. We will look you up next time we are in town. Can u buy a Porsche?
Host was prompt, car was clean and overall great experience. Car rode nice and a good way to get around Nashville. Highly recommend.
I did a pickup and drop off at Nashville airport. Farrukh was very accommodating with my flight delays. Very nice guy. The car, even though a 2015 was SPOTLESS and had zero signs of wear and tear. I highly recommend Farrukh and his car. Stellar experience
5-star experience. The car was extremely clean, inside and out. The car was in excellent condition, and was a blast to drive as well. And dealing with Alejandro was easy. He was very responsive to any questions. Overall great experience. I will rent this car again!
Mackenzie was great! He dealt with me on his birthday and the holidays. The car was clean and had a smooth ride. Mackenzie was very responsive and helpful. Would rent from him again.
Highly recommend Zach, he encompasses that great Nashville hospitality! Overall great car and a great experience driving through Tennessee.
