Wendy’s Cadillac was absolutely fantastic. She was awesome to deal with and next time we are in Chicago we will definitely reach out to her again for a vehicle. It was our first experience with Turo and I’m done with the Big Boy car rental companies. No lines, nicer vehicles to choose from at an extremely reasonable price. This professional insurance agent was skeptical but now I’m all in. Thanks again and Happy Holidays to you and your family!

From requesting our ride to checking out everything went flawless! Great directions step by step with pictures allowing to find the car very quickly! Great communication throughout the entire process and very simple as well! Great long term car rental rented for 2 weeks in the snow handled very great. Looking for a great reliable car with no hassle to checking in/ out definitely rent from Clementina. Will definitely rent from Clementina again when fly to Chicago next time!

Easiest rental process ever! Dmitriv made everything so simple, the car was exactly as advertised, and we couldn’t have been more pleased with how everything turned out. I’d rent from Dmitriv in every city if I could! Oh and GREAT gas mileage on this car, drove all around Chicago and neighboring cities, only filled the car once during our week long stay. Thanks Dmitriv!!!

Dmitry provided excellent service and the Jeep was in excellent shape. When our flight into Chicago was moved back and nearly cancelled, he continued to work patiently with us for the pick up time. His instructions on where to find the car at O’Hare were clear and easy to find. Highly recommend!

Seamless pick-up, drop-off is a little tricky because the street parking is limited, but Nik is really flexible about what nearby street you park on. Easy in, easy out, unlimited mileage, what could be better?

This was my 1st time using Turo. I originally had a Hertz reservation and I've heard a lot about Turo and I decided to find a vehicle that would work for my vacation in Chicago. I found laura's 2021 Toyota Rav4. It was price competitively and I decided to reserved it for 6 days. The truck was in excellent condition well maintained and not to mention it was fully loaded not a base model. We enjoyed getting around in a new new vehicle. Laura was great to work with and open communication and I look forward to renting from her again when I come back to Chicago. This was a great experience using Turo and smooth transaction which beats renting from a car rental business. Thank you Laura!

Wow! After a previous bad experience on Turo (I had to return the car early due to heavy smoke odor), I was reluctant to use Turo again. But Reese showed how it could and should be done. Right from my first inquiry, his responses were rapid, courteous, and professional. He treats this like a business. The car was awesome and the airport pickup couldn't have been easier. I saved a bundle of time not having to take a shuttle to and from the car rental location but it was made so much easier as Reese left the car for me in short-term parking. I visit Chicago regularly, and Reese will always be the first person I contact when I book a Chicago trip. Did I say wow?

Great rental! Nice car to get around Chicago in. No problems whatsoever. Eric did apologize for not being able to clean the car when he brought it to me but I had to apologize for not being able to clean it on return due to the CRAZY weather we had. Extremely fuel efficient, it appears small on the outside but very roomy on the inside. Eric communicated regularly even before my trip was over he asked how was everything. Gave easy pickup and drop off instructions. Excellent rental experience! Would definitely rent from again.

The rental was just what we needed to get around town and the ease of hauling luggage to and from the airport was perfect for us. The car ran smooth and although we didn't need the all wheel drive, it was nice knowing that it was there for snowy or wet weather. Pricing for this type of vehicle was incredibly competitive. Renter does not live very far from O'Hare airport, so consider the pricing of drop off of vehicle at the airport. Others will charge an insane price for drop off and pick up of vehicle. As a first time user for Turo, the overall experience was incredibly simple. I highly recommend Ashley and her Mazda CX-5. She was very responsive and answered several questions via the app. She even followed up wishing us happy travels upon departing from the airport. Thank you Ashley for an awesome experience!

Malik’s Jeep Cherokee was a great vehicle. I had to drive long distance over 6 hours over this past weekend and the Jeep Cherokee gave me no problems. The vehicle was clean, although it’s an SUV, the vehicle was still great on gas, the vehicle was smooth, and easy to operate. No problems. Malik, was very professional and attentive. After booking a reservation, Malik made sure that I would have a great experience working with him on Turo. When it’s time for me to rent cars again, I will definitely be contacting Malik. Thank you.

I loved this car! Beautiful color. Clean and beautiful interior. Great modern technology (CarPlay, USB ports, etc.). Really really fun to drive. Lots of space for luggage (we had 3 carry-on bags). And SUPER FAST & EASY pick up and drop off - the best I've ever had on Turo and certainly blows away rental car companies!

First time ever using Turo and I give it and Lawrence a 10/10..!! Lawrence’s vehicle Sonic was perfect and exactly what we needed for our December trip from Chicago to Green Bay for the weekend..!! It came with 4x4, 1,000 miles which was plenty, and Lawrence provided free delivery and pickup from the airport (which was rare while doing our rental car search)! Not to mention, he communicated great with us and we never went longer than 5 minutes without hearing back from him..! Very prompt with pickup and delivery as well, he was at the airport 15 minutes before us each time..!! It’s going to be hard going back to airport rental companies after the phenomenal experience Lawrence and Turo provided! Look forward to using Sonic again next year for our annual Chicago to Green Bay trip! Thanks again, Lawrence!

Wow! This was my best experience as a Turo renter. Ansergy's car is beautiful, and he made it so easy for me to come and go from Midway, Chicago. Ansergy went above and beyond to make sure his car was conveniently located for me to access it at the airport easily. He even left me money for the parking at the airport (completely unnecessary, but very much appreciated). It was equally easy to return the car in the same spot at the airport. I can't think of anything he could have done to improve my experience! He's on his way to becoming an All-Star Turo Host.

The whole experience was great on our end from start to finish and I hope it was the same on the Ms. Poreda's end as well. The vehicle was set up perfectly for us to retrieve and start our trip. The poreda's made the process flow so smooth. The checkout process was well organized as well as the return process. I honestly couldn't have asked for anything or do a rental from a better person. The vehicle was clean, well maintained, and had plenty of oom for me and my family. I hope we left it in the same condition as we received it. I would recommend if anyone was looking for a rental Mrs. Poreda is very professional and very courteous. They communication was back and forth and they made sure we were comfortable and had everything we needed. Well done is all I can say.

Darrell came in clutch as a previous reservation with a different host didn’t work out. Communication was great and even though it wasn’t the cleanest vehicle and there were minor other issues, I attribute it to the fact the vehicle was recently returned and instead of delaying me further, the decision was made to get me in a vehicle so I could catch my meeting. This obviously did not leave proper time for inspection/cleaning between reservations. The handling of the situation and communication gave Darrell five stars on this one!

Nivia met us at the airport and the transfer of car was so seamless that we were on our way to our hotel within 15 minutes of collecting our baggage. Nivia communicated frequently and accurately/very timely. She gave us precise drop off instructions to drop off the car at airport. The SUV (Honda CRV) was in excellent condition,with full fuel, very neat snd clean and included USB ports/cables for phone charging. This is the first time fir me to try car rental using Turo.com, and I sm very pleased with overall experience .( my typical rental car experience is minimum wait of 60 minutes after getting down from the plane, waiting for shuttle to rental car center, endlessly waiting at rental car queues to get a car). I was pleasantly surprised as how fast snd seem less the experience with Turo was. Nivia made the experience pleasant. Highly recommend.

When business brought us to town, we rented the BMW X3. It came clean and on time. The car did great on the highways and on the local streets. No problems. All Fun! Sleek & sporty, turning heads on Lakeshore drive! Big enough to fit 5 adults comfortably. Cargo bay large enough for one luggage bag per each adult. The car is mid sized enough for easy street parking and maneuvering through the city. When business met pleasure, it was with the X3! Thanks Peigang for the retal, good communication and coordination! Until next time Chicago! A.G. 2021
