Fantastic experience with Can’s car! Everything went smoothly. Can even allowed me to cancel a two day rental to one day due to the COVID-19 situation. Terrific host!
Car was beautiful, clean, and exactly where it was supposed to be when we arrived at the airport. Edward communicated well and there were no surprises. If you are traveling to the Tampa area and looking for a convertible, look no further.
Will was great and accommodating. The car was in perfect shape. Everything was super convenient. I would do it again in a heartbeat.
Pickup and return at the airport was extremely smooth and the car is awesome. Would rent from Michael again!
Agon was very responsive and helpful. Renting the umbrella, chairs and cooler were very convenient. The Prius gets great gas mileage.
What a amazing car! James was easy to rent from and communication about the car was great. Thanks again!!
Filip’s car was great and his service! Was on time and gave great advice on where to visit around tampa. Always goin through filip everytime I visit tampa!
Daytrip went great and smooth with this car! Clean, car in very good shape, useful features, great communication with Parm (the car owner)! Pleasure!
I wish I had more time to write this but I am hiking on a mountain trail right now. I can tell you without hesitation that your experience with Hunter and Tabitha will be absolutely nothing you will regret. You will receive above and beyond what you may expect. Their communications are lightning fast. I cried when I had to drop the car off at the return place. His Jaguar is something that dreams are made of. Literally, everybody has to look when you accelerate by them. This is the first of my many Toro business experiences I suspect. I will recommend them to everybody I know to the point they will think I'm annoying. 😆
absolutely excellent host don't remember when was last time when was treated in such an excellent service no a single "no" "can't" word only "yes" anything you want .WOW Absoulutely highly recommended I will use that service again.
We had a flight cancellation and had to change times with returning the car and Sydni was very flexible with us! Overall a great first experience!
Very accommodating and the ease of use was spectacular! Would absolutely recommend and would rent again!
Pick up and drop off was so easy. Car drove well. First time using turo and it was an amazing experience.
Tony is a enthusiastic Tesla fan who shows great pride in sharing information on the Tesla mission and the Tesla vehicles. Flawless fleet and excellent professionalism and service.
Fantastic experience. Very easy to work & communicate with. Would strongly recommend him to future renters who are in the area for business or leisure.
Ian couldn’t of made my first Turo experience go any better. Definitely coming back to rent from him again.
James was professional at all times and very accommodating to our arrival and departure times. Highly recommend James.
Excellent car for a beach trip in Florida! Loved every second of driving!
Filip was such a kind person! He took the time to send me close to 20 places in the area to check out and I went to a few and they were great. Such a friendly person with such a good attitude and was super good about communicating when it was time for pick up and the car was great, was freshly cleaned when we were picked up and we had a blast on our trip. He messaged me the day after we got home to check how our flight back was. Incredible host! Will only book with him whenever I am down in his area. 5 starts for sure!
First time using Turo and it was a great experience. Will use the Turo app and Suncoast Automotive again. The red Subaru Impreza is a great deal for the price.
Will was easy to work with and his Prius was such a great ride. Saved us a lot on gas. highly recommend Will n his Prius. Thanks again Will
If you like the look of a driving a luxury car James Mercedes 300c is the way to go.
This was my first experience with Turo, and with Suncoast. Pick up and return was as easy as you could imagine, and the car was very tidy. These people care about their business and strive to make their customers’ experience is a joy. I will definitely remember Suncoast for future rentals, and I highly recommend their impeccable service.
Awesome Customer Service when I needed him most ( I got rear ended while stopped at traffic) . Felt horrible but host was good with instructions and guidance. Highly recommend Host!!
Car was fantastic. super easy tranaction and Brigittia was extremly helpful and easy to work with thanks
Filip was absolutely amazing, what a wonderful person. He mad it easier than a car rental company, hope to do business again!
Amie could not have been more accommodating! Car was clean, stylish, and we got plenty of glances! I'll definitely be getting this car again when we return.
Tony Tesla is what he should be called. This individual loves Tesla and everything to do with these magnificent cars. Very professional and communicative and so informational about these cars. He keeps these cars showroom new and is very proud of the way he keeps his marvelous Tesla fleet. If your lucky to do business with Tony you won't regret it. Look no further.
I’m a regular customer that always comes back. Super convenient and great!
Awesome & smooth ride. Car is immaculate and very spacious. Filip made our experience amazing and was super accommodating for pick up and return. He made the process super easy and fast! Could not have asked for more!
Always a Great experience with renting from Joel! Highly recommend Joel!
This Porsche Boxster S is a wonderful car, and Edward did an excellent job of getting it to us.
Great car! And Andrei was very helpful with picking us up from the airport and dropping us back off! Thank you for everything.
Gavin was great to deal with and the car was exactly as expected. Would definitely rent from him again!
Easy rental, thanks for coming to the rescue, car was very clean and ready to go. Thanks Filip
Brian was awesome with every aspect the the process. Very flexible with pick up and drop off times. Would definitely recommend him to a friend.
James Mercedes was in great condition! Very clean and fuel efficient. His pickup and return was seamless and I would live to use his vehicle again the next time I’m in Tampa. Thanks for an awesome first Turo experience!!
Parm was great and loved the car! It was the easiest first Turo experience and I highly recommend renting his vehicle!
James was amazing! The car runs so smooth and is absolutely gorgeous. From the flexibility to having to change my check in time due to a late train to letting me push back the check out time to great communication and customer service, James is a great host. I would love to rent this vehicle out again.
JAMES ROCKED. My fiancé and I were pretty clueless at first considering that this was our first time using Turo. He answered any questions I had immediately and the car was perfect and very clean. We will definitely rent from him again when we come back to Tampa. Couldn’t have asked for a better experience!
Edward was awesome, the car was perfect for our trip. Definitely will be using him anytime I’m in the Tampa area.
Amie was an amazing host. She was always responsive and the car was fantastic!
I was new to Turo and didn't really know how it was all going to go down. Fortunately, I had Tony. He metaphorically held my hand through the process and made it easy to rent his car. He's really a nice guy and boy was his car nice! If you're a first-timer, hopefully you'll be lucky enough to rent from Tony.
James is awesome!! So easy to contact and get to his car. Car was very clean. He even gave is a ride to airport as he was headed there next. That was an unexpected bonus! Super friendly, highly recommend.
Five stars on communication and ease of pick up and drop off. Four stars on passenger car door. Lol. Jeremy explained it gets stuck sometimes and we could open it with a little more effort. Regardless, it kept my daughter and I laughing. Clean car.
Desmond made sure and went out of his way to make sure that the expectations were surpassed. The car is in great condition and an absolute joy to drive. Will definitely be contacting Desmond on the next trip. Thanks Desmond for everything!
Kai was very easy going and friendly. She made sure the car was clean. Will definitely rent from her again given the chance.
Fast communication, fuel efficient and comfortable middle size sedan! Thank you Alia.
Everything was perfect and on time. Nice that we didn’t even have to pay to charge it. That saved $30+ in fuel (if it were gas). Car was really cool to drive too. Quick!! Thanks Chris!
It was a great experience and hassle free . Pick up and drop was very convenient . Car was very neat and tidy.
Marlon is great to rent from! Very professional!! Rented from him twice now and great experience with both rentals!!
I will never go back to another rental car company again long as turo available and the car was one of the best cars I ever drove
Owner was very flexible about extending trip time. Car has CarPlay feature and backup camera which made for a great trip. Handled very nicely and was clean and well kept.
Excellent experience from start to finish. Car was exceptionally clean. Car was ready when promised and Will was always available when questions arose. Top notch.
Perfect from beginning to end. Such a fun car and seamless rental experience. Matt was responsive and has the drop off/pickup process down to a science.
A fun car. Enjoyed the experience. I hope to have again one day.
Great car and great host!! Would recommend this mean machine to anyone who can drive a manual.
My first rental went very smooth! Marlon made my first rental through Turbo great. Thanks!
I use Turo a lot, and this was one of my favorite vehicles I’ve used. This Tesla has the newest tech features put out for Tesla, so it was amazing to experience some of the new tech. In addition to the Model 3, Derrek was an great host! Was willing to be very flexible and made sure I had a great experience with his vehicle.
Very prompt. Car was clean, overall fantastic experience. Would recommend.
Vidas was very communicative and helpful explaining the process for a first time Turo user. Car was exactly as described, A/C blew cold and the car ran great! The Crown Vic made for the perfect A to B car for our trip. Vidas dropped the car off at the airport and left enough cash to pay for parking, all we had to do was go pick up it from the parking lot and drive away. Return was simple and easy, dropped it off at the same parking lot and checked out. I would 100% use Vidas again!
Car was fun to ride. Loved how David allowed me to rent it for an extra day
Really good at communicating. Picking up and returning was made clear and convenient. I’d use his service again for sure!
James is great! First time using Turo and couldn’t have asked for a better experience. I definitely recommend James and will be using his cars again in the future.
This was my second time renting with Gavin. Both trips went awesome! Gavin will do whatever he can to make sure your trip goes smoothly! I definitely recommend renting one of his cars.
Great communication, on-time, and flexible when flight was delayed! Even made suggestions for restaurants upon arrival. Highly recommend!
Marlon was a really good host. As only my second turo experience, he was patient with my methodical, slow picture taking at the start and finish. Also was flexible with my arriving 15 minutes late for the drop off (note: leave 20 minutes extra time for the Howard Franklin backup to the Tampa airport). Great car, such fun to drive. As a Tesla owner, it was tricky to get used to using a valet card instead of the phone key (auto lock/unlock, etc). Marlon was great at communication and gentle nudging regarding the process along the way. A very good host.
Easy enough, clean car, comfortable. Simple pickup drop off instructions
Hunter was a great host. Excellent communication and the F-Type was amazing!
Great Host. Nice guy. Experienced a last minute inconvenience but he was there in a matter of seconds to rent his car out to me.
Brian is an excellent host; punctual, friendly and responsive. His Bolt is an absolute joy to drive, with punchy instant torque and tight handling. The $10 convenience charge fee makes dropoff a breeze.
Edward was easy and awesome to work with. Made it a memorable experience.
I Love The Experience.I Love The Way Reginald Communicated
Filip was so flexible and made our trip in a breeze! He was very personable and reliable and made great recommendations of the area. We will definitely be using his car if/when we return to Tampa! Took a lot of the stress out of traveling.
Chad was a great host! His vehicle was great! Clean, great on gas, no problems what so ever. I would highly recommend Chad to any of my friends/Family members.
I was a second time renter for this Porsche and once again Edward was extremely communicative and responsive. I look forward to renting this amazing car many more times!
James was very accommodating to my changes that were last minute, couldn’t ask for a better efficient and reliable vehicle. Would definitely rent again. Thank you James!
Gavin’s Ford Focus was great! Was in town to visit family and it got me around Tampa holiday traffic no problem. Bonus points for the kinky keychain ;)
First time using the app and will made it great next time I come back to Florida I’ll rent from him again
