This "Princess Prius" has everything to make your commute safe and easy: BEST gas mileage so you can go for EVER without gas stops; air con/cd stereo/cup holders/map holders/roomy trunk. Bonus points are the sun & moon roof to pretend you're in a convertible(!) and super ease of handling, turning & parking. The Princess Prius is dependable (Toyota) and so fun to drive! You can even enjoy your favorite tunes on Sirius XM radio. PLEASE NOTE: we need 24 hours' notice to rent the Princess --- as we do not check email hourly & do not always have cell phone at hand.

The Princess Prius is also happy to transport your pets too; but please clean and vacuum before returning. :)
We are happy to pick-up/return renters to airport.
We are very familiar with Bend & surrounding areas - feel free to ask about hiking/kayaking/accommodations and eateries - we LOVE our home!
Claire Anne and her car were wonderful! She offered to pick us up and drop us off at the airport both ways! She was kind and thorough with everything and it felt like we knew who to call if we were to ever run into trouble in Bend. The car itself was clean and ran great. We would absolutely rent with Claire Anne again on our next trip!
Claire Anne couldn't have made my first experience with Turo any better. She picked me up at the airport and met me back there to drop off the car. I fly standby so my flight times changed and she was very flexible in meeting with me. The car itself was great too. The incredible MPG made gas costs almost negligible and the satellite radio came in handy on the long drive to Crater Lake. If I'm ever back in the Bend area I'll definitely be renting from her again!
This was my first time using Turo or any personal car rental for that matter & it was awesome! Claire Anne was a gem to work with! I called her within the hour I booked to confirm the trip & she was super flexible for accommodating pick up/drop off. The Prius was a wonderful little car to drive on the open road, smooth & great on gas. Loved this experience!
The Prius is a great car and gets excellent gas mileage. The sunroof is a nice feature and it has sirus radio as well. It's comfortable and drives well. I took off a star not because of the car but because there were several concerns I had through the rental process. The owner first gave me the wrong keys and asked me to drive to her house and swap them with the ones she should have given me. She then said she might need the car during one of the days I rented it. This however never happened but was a bit of a concern. Lastly she called several times about arranging the drop off. She had made plans during the time I was suppose to return the car so asked I either return it the night before or early in the morning. It all worked out but was quite the headache. They're nice people but when it comes to business not super great. Put the car with a different owner and you're all set.
A great little car. Perfect for me--reliable, but not brand-new fancy where you worry about it. Economical, easy to drive and park. FYI, and this is my own fault, only mentioned for others' planning: I didn't check first, but there is no roof rack, and a Prius is pretty small. I squeezed a ski bag inside but it was somewhat awkward, and would have made fitting four passengers in difficult. If you don't need extra space for big gear, it's the perfect rental. Claire Anne was very pleasant and easy-going. Would definitely rent this again.
I had a great time exploring Oregon in Claire Anne's Princess Prius. The car gets incredible gas mileage and is fully loaded. xm radio came in handy while driving in areas that had no radio reception. Claire Anne and her husband were kind enough to deliver and return the car at the airport as well which made the whole experience seamless. I would definitely rent this vehicle again and am now thinking about buying a Prius myself (43 mpg throughout the trip!). My only regret was not giving myself enough time to get her cleaned back up after my escapades to Crater Lake and Deschutes National Forrest (I turned her into a dust ball which was a far cry from the immaculate condition I received her in). The roads in Oregon have significantly lower speed limits than other states I've been in so give yourself a little extra time to get around and enjoy the scenery.
I recently rented Claire Anne's Prius & wasn't disappointed. The car was dependable,clean,great on fuel & a lot of fun! Claire Anne was a pleasure to rent from as she made the process so very easy. If necessary I would gladly rent this car again! Thanks Claire Anne!
This was my first time renting from Turol i had a last minute obligation i heard of Turo and checked it out i found claires prius it was perfect as soon as i got in contact with claire she treated like one of the famliy the car was great but the reason i know i will use Turo again is the way claire worked to accommodate my spur of the moment request and the genuine kindness she showed u won't ever find that at another rental place ever thk u for everything claire ur the best!
My first experience with Turo was absolutely terrific. The "Princess Prius" was a great car for getting around the Bend area and Claire Anne and John were remarkably generous and kind. This was altogether a wonderful decision I'd make again ... and you'll be glad if you do the same.
If you find yourself in Bend, Ore and in the need of a car, look no further! Not only will you get a nice, clean, reliable, gas sipping Toyota Prius, you will get to meet some of the nicest, welcoming, and down to earth people you will ever meet! I may rent the car just to visit with them!! :-)
