ℹ️ If you have any questions about renting my Passat, including mileage limits feel free to call or text me at (207) 315-5206.
Please refrain from booking after 10pm EST as I will miss it by the following morning!
My Passat is in excellent condition throughout! It has leather seats, automatic transmission, cruise control, a very spacious interior and a roomy trunk. Back seats also fold flat for additional cargo space. It is precise and fun to drive, has power when needed but driven conservatively it will also provide good gas mileage. It does take premium so keep that in mind when budgeting - premium gas (octane 91 or 93) is generally 40-50 cents more per gallon than regular gas (this means about $2 in gas/day if you drive 100 miles).
The car is equipped with an audio input and also an external Bluetooth if you prefer to go wireless when listening to your beats. A charging cable for both Apple and Android devices is available as well and an USB port where you can plug in you preferred cord.
☑️ Please review the guidelines and FAQ section before booking.
Check out my other cars on Turo if the Passat is unavailable for your dates:
The car is located in downtown Portland, very easily accessible from PWM by uber or lyft - takes 12-15 minutes and costs less than $10.
If you are new to uber/lyft, use the referrals below to get $10 credit at sign up:
Snow tires or chains
Electronic Parking Brake
The parking garage is only available for pick up/drop off purposes - if you need to park in the downtown area of Portland, parking at Ocean Gateway Garage is available for an additional $5/day. Inquire about parking availability upon booking.
If I'm available to meet you at PWM at the specific times you arrive 🛬 / depart 🛫, I will! If not, I will call you an uber/lyft to pick you up and bring you to where the car is located on the Portland Peninsula. Financially it's less expensive for travelers to just select car location pick up in the first place - an uber/lyft ride is $10-$12 one way from the airport to where the car is located. This 2nd option will also make for easier pick ups in case your flight is delayed.
Given I live in Portland, Maine (2hrs away / 100 miles from Logan airport in Boston) it takes me 5-6hrs to compete a car pick up or drop off. If I'm available to deliver for the hours your arrive / depart I will gladly do so. If not, I will politely decline your request so you can look for a different car with an owner that can honor your BOS request.
ℹ️ Please inquire through the app or text me at (207) 315-5206 to confirm that I can deliver at your preferred dates / times. Thanks!
NO smoking, NO exceptions 🚭
No pets: (e.g. 🐶🐵🐣🦄🐍🐊🐏🦃🐩 NO)
No food consumption: just find a picnic area, pull over and feast 🍗🍔🍟🌮🌯🍜🍦🍩. Nobody likes mayo or soft serve in their lap and car seat - it's also dangerous to eat while driving!
No off-road driving: my car is not built for it, please DON'T 🚜
Can I drive beyond the mileage limit?
Absolutely! You can purchase a higher mileage limit depending on your trip needs. The current limits are set so that I can offer competitive day rates. Just inquire about increasing the mileage limit when you request to book and I will share more details.
Do I need to wash/vacuum/clean the car?
I expect renters to return the Prius in the same condition it was when picked up. Given this expectation my car comes with unlimited membership to a nearby car wash and cleaning supplies are also available in the trunk. Renters should factor in the time it takes to stop by the car wash prior to returning the car. If renters don't have the time/ability to clean and wash the car prior to drop off, a $10 convenience fee will be charged.
Can I drive your car to Canada?
Yes, you may certainly drive across the border into Canada if this is part of your travel itinerary - Turo policy allows it and Turo insurance covers it. Depending your trip duration and the trip mileage a $20 fee will be charged.
Can I pick up / drop off the car if Andrei is unavailable or something changes in my itinerary?
The short answer is YES! I have a key lock box that will safely slide and lock in the window of the car which allows for quick and convenient access and/or car drop off. Details instructions about how I manage remote key exchanges will be shared with you after booking but you will need to agree and abide by the Turo policy:
Do you provide an ezPass?
An ezpass will be in the car for you to use on toll roads in New England. Do note that you are responsible for the cost of the tolls at the end of your trip. You can pay in cash at the end of your trip or I will submit for reimbursement through the Turo app.
Andrei helped me out of a bind. I was in the midst of a trip home to visit Family in Maine and was in need of a car. I had been renting his other car (2008 Prius) and thankfully he was able to allow me to rent this Passat for the remainder of my trip. Like his other car, this car was immaculate, ran perfectly, and was super comfortable. Andrei was flexible, professional and very friendly and accommodating. I also want to add that at the rate he charges - I saved a ton of $$ as well. I met Andrei face-to-face for the first time when I dropped off this car, and he is every bit as friendly, honest and genuine as he presents himself here. Thank you Andrei for making this trip a great experience -- I look forward to contacting you again when I come to Maine!
Andrei's Passat was perfect for our needs. We took a long road trip through Maine, New Brunswick and Nova Scotia. The car is immaculately kept and runs well. Andrei was so friendly and helpful. We couldn't have asked for more.
Andrei was great and very easy to communicate with -- he was very accessible, reliable, and showed me everything about the car. The car itself was very clean and easy to drive. I would definitely use Turo with Andrei again!
Andrei is Fabulous! The Passat is spotless, beautifully maintained, and even has a phone charger to use! Also radio is pre set to lovely statiins, should you want that! Not one detail overlooked! Better than Avis any day! Xx
Andrei is very professional, friendly, considerate, very flexible and a cool person. Trust me, This is the Fifth time I rented his car and What I love is that the car comes super clean every time I get it. The car is in very good condition, safe and reliable, I actually drove it in the snow storm for work without any issues. He also checks in between if things are ok with the car and responds real quick. I would give him more stars if I could and highly recommend. Overall a great experience !! Thanks Andrei!!!
First time using this app/service. Andrei was great: he responded quickly, was flexible and most of all helpful. His car is in excellent shape, it was clean and drove great AND it was cheaper than any commercial car rental service. Will definitely being using this service again! Thanks Turo and Andrei!
Renting Andei's Passat was one of the best "sharing economy" experiences I've had. Not only was Andei super friendly, professional, and accommodating for our pickup/drop off time and location, but his vehicle was pristine and equipped with all the bells and whistles you need to be comfortable and have fun. I really loved the way this car drives! And with Andei's thorough run-down of any of its quirks/nuances, we felt safe and equiped even when it got a little icy. Thank you Andrei, we hope to rent from you again!
