If you have a big family, but your pocket book says "no" to a big SUV, the Caravan might be your next-best choice. Although still referred to as a minivan by the EPA, the Caravan has long since outgrown any description with the word "mini" in it. This sizable people hauler can seat up to seven passengers and features The Caravan has a long list of standard and optional equipment.
Van has 35k on it (at the time of writing 6/13/17) very clean, and drives like a dream!

The vehicle will be at a car wash, that I rent a spot for another business of mine or waiting for you, at my house very nearby, two minutes away.
For SAT deliveries (Only if you choose airport to pick up on reservation):
USUALLY, You will CALL me when you land, I live 10 mins away from the airport. Then I will meet you curbside outside of baggage claims and will call you when pulling up. I will need to be dropped off nearby and picked up when returning to the airport.
SOMETIMES (for airport only), the van will be waiting or you will drop off the van at the Budget rent-a-car parking that, I will pay for. Shuttles run to the terminal every 10 minutes or less 5 am to 12:30 am daily. You’ll get initial instructions on how to find the lot and vehicle a few hours before your trip, and then detailed photos and parking lot location. Parking facilities at Budget rent-a-car are open to the public for $6 a day plus taxes and fees, that I take care of. Please keep in mind if you are late picking up or park the vehicle a day earlier than your reserved times, you may be responsible for any parking fees in excess of one-day parking I include. When you return the van to the same lot, the drop-off is a breeze. Leave the parking ticket, and key locked inside the vehicle in a lock box that I'll have, and send me text messages with a few photos. Then just head straight to the terminal!
NOTE: PLEASE BE AWARE RENTAL START AND END TIMES ARE EXACT. YOUR INSURANCE IS NOT ACTIVE UNTIL THE RENTAL STARTS AND ENDS THE MOMENT YOU RETURN THE VEHICLE. PLEASE CHECK YOUR FLIGHTS TO ENSURE YOU DO NOT ARRIVE TOO EARLY, OR NEED TO DRIVE AFTER THE END TIME.
VERY RARELY, you will need to take an Uber or Lyft to and/or from my house.... IF this occurs I will reimburse the cost up to $10 each way (the cost of the ride). You can take a taxi too, but I will ONLY reimburse $10 each way and taxis cost more.
You could very well not choose airport to pick up, save the $20 on Turo.com and use Uber or Lyft to my pick up location for $10 each way (It actually works out better for me and gives you more control). Get your 1st ride free or discounted to anywhere they operate with these referrals links:
(Please keep in mind Turo keeps 25% the daily rental and fees associated with drop off/pick up and the rental income)
------ A FEW CONDITIONS ------ 1) CLEANING - Turo and I use the “campsite rule” when it comes to the interior of the car: Please leave the inside in as good or better condition than you found it. Excessive dirt, dust, etc that requires a visit to the vacuum may incur a cleaning fee. When it comes to the exterior, please wash away any dirt you’ve encountered on your trip, unless common sense dictates something else (rain is pending, roads are covered in winter slush, etc).
2) NO SMOKING - If the vehicles smell of any kind of smoke, you will be fully responsible for all costs associated with having the vehicle ozone decontaminated.
3) PETS - Are allowed, but we ask that you mitigate any potential allergy issues by laying down sheets, covers, or using a crate. Any found pet hair or dander may incur a cleaning fee.
----- GAS & TOLLS -----
GAS: If you’re unable to return the car with the same amount of gas you started with, please let us know in advance. We can take care of your fill-up for the next renter for only a $10 fee, plus gas.
TOLLS: You will be responsible for any tolls incurred. You will be sent a reimbursement request within 60 days. You only need to worry about tolls if you're going outside of San Antonio, which is one of the only major cities left in Texas without tolls!
Remember it is a community car sharing service. Please return the car in the same clean condition as you received it for the next member of the community to use.
Is there anything wrong with this vehicle?
Currently there some pre-existing hail dinks on the hood that it's hard to see in the photos. Also, there is a 6" light dent you can see in the photo under back passenger door handle. Last the back doors must be locked by hand and back doors open manually. The owner is aware of and will not hold any renter liable. These are the only things.

Steven was extremely friendly and very accommodating. The vehicle was very clean when we received it and it ran well. Everything worked out well for our needs during this rental. Thank you Steven!
Steve was awesome. He made the trip flawless and smooth. The van was a great ride, cold AC and good mpg. It's perfect size for a small family and the price was super reasonable. Don't over look this great deal. Would rent from Steve again.
Steven was ideal to rent from. Communication was good, and he was flexible and understanding about us having to change our original itinerary due to unforseen circumstances. The van was very clean and had a fresh, new-car smell. We would definitely rent from him again.
Steven accommodated all travel needs meeting me promptly at the airport with a clean perfect van for my 2 week Texas holiday! Excellent communications, very friendly and helpful, plus this Dodge Caravan was perfect for 4 adults and my 2 grandchildren. Steven printed up and signed our agreement to include with his Turo insurance information. I highly recommend him and this van and plan to rent from Steven again when I return to Texas! AA++
