Ford Edge 2007
I-Pass was included (separate charge) but perfect for us! Easy for parents to get in/out of vehicle and very roomy! Perfect rental SUV for our trip and is stylish! Tessa met us at the airport both times, very easy to pickup and drop off. Lots of mileage was needed for us, but wasn't an extra charge like other Turos out there. Excellent service and would be using again! Thank you very much Tessa!

Audi Q5 2015
Félycia is an amazing host, super nice, communicates amazingly and makes sure that your trip is going well. And the car, the car is just an absolute beast. It was such an amazing and cool ride. Even though there were a snowstorm and almost no parking due to the snow, I never had any trouble as the all-wheel drive was just amazing and didn't get stuck. If I'm going to rent an SUV again, it's with Félycia's Q5 again for sure. Highly highly recommend!
Erika P. - February 1, 2019
Kia Sorento 2014
Turo was a completely new experience for me but it’s a great idea and it worked really well. The communication was great and made it easy. I wasn’t crazy about having to wash the outside of the car but I do understand why as it’s a private person’s car. The price was fantastic. I could not have afforded to rent an SUV from a rental car company.
Rachael R. - March 14, 2018
Ford Escape 2010
Stephen was a great host; he provided a nice clean fuel car & made the drop off and pick up more than easy. He accommodated all of my request, had great communication, and answered all my questions timely. I would be more than happy to rent from him again, with no hesitation. Definitely recommend for anyone who’s looking to rent an SUV or car period to rent from him, not just for his services but also cost.

Great Suv, great rental period! Uber props to FINE they did good by me this time and tbh they completely restored my respect and faith in their establishment. Tks to Ms.Rosie. Would definitely rent again, tks Mr. Peyton.

Easy and quick transactions with the host. The car is very new; drive great with no issues. Will definitely rent again if the need for a full size SUV comes up. I highly recommend Jeff!

Kia Niro 2018
Easy pleasant Turo experience. The car was clean and great, the pickup and drop off were timely and seamless. Thanks Egine for the flexibility with extending my trip! For those interested in a more standard SUV driving experience, please note this Kia is comfortable and fairly roomy but sits lower to the ground like a standard car. I’m a tall gal and like to step up and ride high. Lol.
Ingrid W. - April 13, 2019
Chevrolet TrailBlazer 2009
Outstanding experience renting Will's Trailblazer. Great communication. Convenience cannot be beat: Will met us outside of baggage claim for the pickup and at the Southwest departure gate for the drop-off. When traveling with a 1-year old and a heavy car-seat, that level of convenience is priceless. But alas, the Trailblazer was about 50-60% of the cost of a rental SUV, which would have required a trip on the shuttle. Bottom line, would rent from Will anytime and plan to do so again soon.
Michael K. - August 18, 2018
Honda CR-V 2013
The Honda CR-V was a great, roomy car and Raviwat was very accommodating. He met us promptly at the baggage claim area at Logan Airport, drove us to our first destination, and then hopped out. We were all set for three weeks in New England! Communicating was easy. We texted back and forth regarding trip details. At the end of the trip, he pre-paid for parking near Logan Airport, where I parked and took the free shuttle to Logan. It couldn't have been more convenient and it was a fraction of the cost of a rental SUV. Thanks, Raviwat!
Robert H. - July 23, 2018
Toyota FJ Cruiser 2014
Things couldn’t of gone better! Don went out of his way to help me with my rental. The SUV was top notch. We were the coolest kids on the block for our annual camping trip. I highly recommend Turo & Don’s vehicle especially.
Lydia S. - November 30, 2018
Mercedes-Benz GL-Class 2007
Rented this car to have a full size SUV to drive up to a ski trip in Stowe VT. The pickup at the airport was seamless and Yang was there waiting for me when I arrived at Logan. We encountered a massive blizzard on our drive up to Vermont and the 4matic all wheel drive was exactly what we needed. In our last 40 miles of the drive at least 30 cars were pulled over and or had skid off the road. We were able to continue on at a reasonable pace. The SUV has rubber weather tech like mats that were perfect for getting in the vehicle from the snow and slush. We got them pretty dirty and gladly paid a $25 cleaning fee. Without the rubber mats the carpets might not have been savable. If you need a large SUV with a good mileage allowance, dollar cost averaging this is your best option in Boston. Doppring the car off was also very easy and Yang was at the airport 30 minutes prior to my scheduled arrival time. Five stars will definitely rent from Yang again!

Wells’ Mercedes SUV Turo rental was excellent. He communicated everything in a timely manner, made the pick up and drop off convenient and the suv was very clean and handled the snowy Jackson Hole weather with ease. I would absolutely contact Wells again when in need of a vehicle in Jackson. Way better than a car rental agency, in my opinion Thanks again Wells !

Porsche Cayenne 2018
*First Turo experience. Frequent car rental service user for work. Car enthusiast. To start, I was looking for a spacious SUV for a trip to the shore. I finally decided on the 2018 Cayenne because it great deal and I expected great things from a Porsche. Regarding available space in the car - unbelievable how many boxes it can hold with the seats down. Best part was that it’s still handled and drove exceptionally loaded. As for the car, it made the journey my favorite part of the trip - so much fun to drive and very comfortable for a long trip. What put my experience over the top was Gavi and his crew. The whole experience was extremely professional. Gavi was especially flexible and accommodated when it mattered most - at the end of my trip. If my first time experience says anything about Turo or renting from Gavi, it’s that you should have absolutely no concerns and you should look forward to driving something special. Thank you for allowing me the pleasure to drive that fantastic Cayenne..

Toyota Highlander 2013
So made everything about this trip perfect. It was our first trip to Montana so we didn’t know what to expect overall but from the minute we booked the Highlander with Sam he was nothing but helpful. He arranged an easy location for pickup as soon as we landed. The car was delivered super clean and perfect for our family. All Wheel Drive was a must for the area and this one couldn’t be beat. And his extras are the best. We went with a car seat and cooler which made our trip through Yellowstone very comfortable. We felt safe and easy throughout our entire vacation and almost forgot it was a rental. Felt like our own car. Sam even stayed in touch to recommend cool local spots and to make sure we were good. Best of all, we were pretty tired at the end of our trip and Sam made return arrangement very easy and convenient. We loved Montana and will definitely be back. Won’t even shop around for another ride, and will try to book with Sam early as I’m sure his car will be one of the most popular in the area. Thanks again Sam!!

Dodge Durango 2014
Needed a vehicle with an extra seat for the weekend to for a trip to the cabin and Corey's vehicle fit the bill. Car was fueled and ready to go at pickup. And far more reasonably priced for a full size SUV than I could rent through anywhere else. Thanks Corey.
Austin V. - April 23, 2018
Chevrolet Suburban 2017
The car was amazing, we rented for 10 days and it was the best decision I've ever made. The car is very clean like brand new. I'm really recommend to anyone that looking for a full size SUV, you will not disappointed!!
Vasin K. - May 30, 2018
Nissan Armada 2018
What an amazing vehicle for the mountains! This was my first time using Turo and I have no regrets. The loaded Armada has everything you could want, with heated/cooled seats, XM radio, NAV system, 360 cameras, and super comfy leather seats to list a few. The large engine with snow mode and 4wd hi/low felt very secure in bad weather. Tim Dahle and crew were responsive throughout the trip. The Armada is a LARGE SUV and has lots of space. If u are traveling with 4+, u would be more comfortable with ski racks (given the layout and center rear console). In our crew, we also had a regular rental SUV, and the difference in vehicles was not even close. Not just because of a superior vehicle, but also a faster pick up (took minutes) and little things like extra FOB key. Apparently, the airport dropout had to be changed to the economy lot, so be sure to give some extra time when returning vehicle. All in all, very pleased with Turo and Tim Dahle. It was also nice to test out a new Nissan car and see what it’s available down the line for future purchase. Thanks for the great work!!!

GMC Yukon XL 2011
Great working with Christopher and very convenient! Car was at the airport with a full tank ready to go. The Yukon drove well and handled the road no problem. I would rent this vehicle again as you can’t beat the price in comparison to a traditional SUV rental. A few things to note for the picky renter: parking at the airport is $13 per day that you’ll pay when you pick up the car at the airport. There was a TPMS light and an Airbag light lit up on the dash, however Chris assured me it was no big deal and just faulty sensors; he was available immediately when I reached out with questions. Thanks again, Chris!

Lexus GX 460 2010
This was our first Turo so we went in with a blank slate. We couldn’t have asked for a more enjoyable experience. From the time we booked the reservation (and the fast confirmation), to the drop off and pickup, to the communication, and the vehicle itself - it was truly a pleasure. I travel a lot and I rent a lot - always with the big chains, as my employer usually handles the booking. This was our first vacation in 8 years and I’ve always been interested in Turo - an Airbnb for cars! I’d rather drive an older, more interesting or more comfortable car than a boring sub-economy roller skate. I’m fascinated with cars and wanted a decent sized luxury SUV for this trip - we have two small children (4 and 6) and all the luggage and car seats, plus a long drive (5 hrs one way) that I didn’t want to do in a cheap rental car. Sore backs, fighting kids - no thanks. For the same price (cheaper, in some cases) I got a Lexus GX460 with full leather, heated and cooled seats, heated wood steering wheel, three rows of seats (we took my parents out for lunch when we arrived before continuing on to South Padre Island alone), a huge trunk, and built in DVD player with screens on each headrest so the kids could pass the time a little....quieter 😉 the pictures spoke for themselves - Susan and Brent do a great job presenting their fleet and it shows when the car arrives - the car was showroom clean, shining and smelled wonderful. You would NEVER guess it’s a 9 year old truck with over 100k miles. Susan was so welcoming and cheerful - it was almost as if she was a relative meeting us to pick up, yet we had never met. She pulled up just as we were walking out of the terminal, carefully calculated by texts when we landed and when we got our bags. She laughed and joked with the kids, and helped us load our luggage. She gave a once over on the car and then insisted we treat it as our own and have fun. It was honest and genuine and immediately made us feel at ease and welcomed. She made sure we were comfortable and settled and heading off before leaving. We put just about 1,000 miles on the truck between Austin to Mission to drop our kids with my parents, then on to South Padre Island and around the island, then back to Mission and on to Austin to fly home. We blended right in, got some nods and just generally felt a little special - it’s no economy hatchback - and it looks fancy and luxurious - because it is! We had absolutely zero issues with the vehicle from start to finish. I work in service for a huge Toyota dealer and I am usually a bit more critical of cars I drive or ride in - this car passes the test! Not a single hiccup or concern the entire time. We drove on the beach and on the flats to the edge of the ocean, we used the trunk as a place to lounge and watch the waves, it took us to all the restaurants and fun activities we wanted to see on the island. It felt so comfortable and the truck fit us like a glove. Brent and Susan have one of my dream cars - a Porsche Cayenne GTS - which I discovered after booking the Lexus, but the Lexus is larger and has the third row of seats, so it was a perfect fit. (That just gives us an excuse to go back and rent their Porsche!!) Even though cleaning is included (some Turo owners charge a cleaning fee, which I totally get, but Brent and Susan don’t - another bonus!), I brought it to the car wash and washed & vacuumed it - that’s just me, I always try to return cars the way they were given to me. I had driven it on the sand and 1,000 miles of highway miles can plaster more than a handful of bugs all over the front of it. It’s a big truck with a powerful V8 but it did surprisingly well on fuel - averaged about 20 mpg which is impressive given the vehicle size and power. It takes premium but gas prices are so low it didn’t make a difference. Half my cars at home run on premium as well, so again, not an issue, but worth noting for those who aren’t used to it. When the day came to return the Lexus, Susan gave a friendly message confirming our departure flight info, hoped that our time in Texas was fun and relaxing, and gave detailed, easy to follow directions for dropping it back off at the airport. We headed back, gassed up at the station next to the airport, and went right to curbside drop off - just as if a friend or family member (or limo or taxi) would drop you, right at the terminal, no fuss. Let me tell you - traveling with two small kids and their car seats and luggage for a week - this was a GODSEND. It’s hard enough lugging all this stuff through check in and security, but to imagine going to a typical rental agency, then a shuttle from the offsite location to the airport, etc - I couldn’t imagine. My wife has done it a few times, after this experience I won’t do it any other way. We were greeted with genuine excitement - not for the return of the Lexus, but for us and our trip. We shared a few highlights while Susan helped unload the luggage with us, shared a few more laughs, and made sure the car was clear of our personal belongings. The whole thing felt almost surreal - from the second she met us curbside when we first picked up, Susan made the entire experience so smooth and unforgettable. To finish, there is NO reason to rent from those big name places. If one of Brent and Susan’s fleet vehicles is available and fits your needs - do NOT hesitate, do NOT attempt to save a few dollars going with a cheaper vehicle, I can promise no one will make you feel as appreciated and as valued as Susan and Brent did for me and my family. My only negative is that they’re only in Austin - Susan, Brent - it’s time to spread across the country and change the rental game. Quality vehicles, super clean and well maintained, prompt, friendly and endearing, timely and unbelievably easy pick up and drop off - they have it all. If you’re still reading - and I hope you are - don’t disregard this as a “weighted” or “bought” review - when I experience superior customer service and attention to detail like they delivered to me and my family - heck they made me FEEL like family - I am inspired to share it. That said, I don’t usually fee as strongly as I do about this experience and would normally just give the star rating and move along. Susan and Brent absolutely earned every letter and word in this review - I guarantee you will be just as blown away as I was. Thank you both so much for making one of the largest and potentially most frustrating part of our trip so easy, so convenient, and so enjoyable. We will absolutely be back to rent from you again! Scott and the Poirier Family

Mercedes-Benz GLA-Class 2016
Everything was 100% perfect. From the car itself, to the seamless pickup and drop off with wonderful Robert. He made everything so very easy and pleasant for us. The Benz is absolutely beautiful and she drives great. Perfect for a family weekend trip to the keys, and allowed us to remain comfortable in luxury and style while out of town, in a new place and away from our own luxury automobiles at home without having to deal with inconsistent car rental services by the airports. I highly recommend Robert and his beautiful Mercedes to anyone traveling to southern Florida or just even looking to ride in style for a night or two. Thank you so much to Robert for everything and all of his accommodations. We definitely will keep in touch and rent from him again.

Toyota RAV4 2013
Thank you so much Johnny for lending me your awesome RAV4. I literally fell in love with that car and it was a perfect fit for our family vacation. I want to start off by saying that Johnny was one of the best hosts I’ve e ever rented from on Turo and taking this big vacation in a huge city, Johnny made me feel very comfortable and I knew I would be well taken cared of. He was very professional and sincere right from the start. Johnny your the best and thanks for letting me extend my trip with the RAV4 on a short notice. If ever I come back to visit Vegas, know that we will be doing business. :) Thanks so much. Glad we met.

Ford Explorer 2015
This was my first trip using Aarron and his ford explorer and I was beyond satisfied . The most difficult part of any trip is dealing with the car rental and airports, Arron and his wife excuded professionalism and communication corespondance that was top notch, eliminating all my travel stress. , Arron and his wife also made me feel like I was family. I will be renting from them again this time next year and the next to visit my parents . II will also be telling all my freinds and family about what a great experiiace I had ,I cant thank them enough for taking all of the head ache and stress out of my trip, Renting with Arron and Turo also saved me hundreds of dollars that I woud have spent with most of the overpriced car rental agancies . The money I saved became more play trip money. Thank you and you will hear from me again, Sincerely MARNIE PETERSON

Jeep Renegade 2015
BEST TURO EXPERIENCE EVER!!! Emily’s Jeep was exactly what we were looking for! This was was our first Turo and this will be hard to top. We paid a little extra and Emily added in rental snorkel and beach gear.... we usually buy these cheaply when we vacay at the beach, but these were high quality items available for our use and now not in the charity bin. The Jeep was absolutely perfect for our needs! We went EVERYWHERE we wanted to go. What a magnificent trip we enjoyed! We went everywhere I had hoped; from A’kaka falls, snorkeling with honu by Hilo- found the turtles by accident!! We went to south point (we didn’t jump!), to Hawai’ian Botanical Gardens, to Captain Cook and the National Park (3 words meaning a place of refuge... I cannot recall the name). Emilys little Jeep was waaaaay better than a rental car or a bunch of tours. What a great time we had! I was a little worried that we would want 4X4 Jeep, but this is perfect for everything that is not-off roading or extreme Jeep adventures. Emily (& Nick) — many thanks from Amy & Mark 🧡

Ford Escape 2015
My experience with Maor was excellent for my 1st time using Turo. If you are going to be in the Toronto area, I could not recommend Maor and his vehicle enough. We had a day trip the Niagara Falls and after accepting my rental he gave me and my family superior customer service. Very personable to work with, great communication, and very flexible to my needs. He dropped the vehicle off and gave me a ride back to my vacation rental when the transaction was complete. 11/10 rated experience.

Nissan Rogue 2010
Thomas’ Nissan Rogue was the perfect mid-size SUV for our trip to Sedona. This time of the year, car rentals are ridiculously high, and being our first time using Turo, Thomas was great to work with. Will rent from him again, as we have family in Tempe.

Dodge Durango 2015
I am from Germany and have been looking for a rental car. And found this app Turo. I had 3 weeks vacation in Temecula and drove with my family (2Kids, 1Wife) with this beautiful car from Nick. The car had enough space inside. The contact with Nick was great. The car was nice and fast. We made road trips to San Diego, Del Mar, La Jolla, Mission Beach, Las Vegas and other wonderful places in California. That was wonderful. Thank you very much nick, that you rented us your car, and we have defied the rather bad English well. If we come back next year, we would rent the car again.

Lexus GX 460 2014
The vehicle was exceptionally clean and everything worked. It made our trip go very smoothly. This trip was a family vacation for us with 10 people. We split between two vehicle and made it very cost effective. We wouldn’t have been able to do many fun things if we would have done a normal rental. Thank you David for making this trip a great experience for my family and I!!!! I would also like to mention that it was extremely easy to pickup and return thanks to David’s use of the people at FINE Parking.

Honda CR-V 2018
While I do think Alex was not at fault for my frustrations, I do feel that leaving a glowing review about my first experience using Turo would not be accurate. But Alex was a great host and tried his best to accommodate us after our series of missed communication or misunderstandings. This is my story: I first reserved a Tesla Model X for our trip, and was excited to use an electric vehicle for our trip. It was an all wheel drive vehicle, which was a safety plus especially for the snowy area we were planning on visiting. I had setup for a LAX pickup and all the details of the trip were "confirmed". Maybe 2 days before the trip Alex contacted me, stating that his vehicle had gone into the shop for maintenance and was supposed to be ready by the time our trip was scheduled to start, but now the shop was saying that it could possibly be delayed due to parts not coming in. But there was a possibility of the vehicle being ready. It was really great of him to communicate the situation to us, as we did not like the idea of our vehicle situation being up in the air. I asked him if he had any other vehicles available, and he said that he just got a new CRV that he hadn't even listed on Turo yet but would be able to. It seemed like a similar sized vehicle, and was brand new, and I thought CRVs are AWD, so it seemed like an acceptable replacement vehicle for what we needed. So I called Turo to cancel and was given full refund credit because the original vehicle was possibly unavailable, and I was still going to use Turo. I decided to try to still use him because I wanted to still give him some business due to him being upfront about everything and trying to accommodate us. Alex listed his new car, and to his dismay there was a discount automatically applied to his listing due to the length of the reservation (that he did not mean to have), to which I told him it would be totally fine with me if he cancelled the trip, but again he was accommodating and said that he would honor the price because of all the last minute changes and sticking with him. The day of our flight up, there was flight delays and we ended up having to cancel flights and book others (thats a whole other story) but we made it into LAX the same morning we were originally planning on getting there, so our Turo reservation didn't have to be modified. But I had apparently completely missed the fact that the new Turo booking had the location of our trip starting at Alex's house, which was in Encino. And I had completely misunderstood Alex's confirmation of the pickup being off-site, because my original reservation was from LAX and I didn't realize that it could or would be a different pickup from my original reservation. So I was at LAX, messaging Alex inquiring when we would be picked up, and was less than stoked to find out that I had arranged for our trip to start at LAX. I am a first time Turo user and because the original reservation for the Tesla had been searched thru Turo for the LAX location, all the cars had the pickup as the airport. But since the new reservation was made from a link that was sent to me, it did not have LAX as the default location, and we were now responsible for getting to Encino after a hellish travel night with a 3 year old and all of our baggage. First Uber we called, our bags could not fit in with the car seat and us, so we had to pay a cancellation fee. We got an awesome second Uber XL (shout out to Hudson) and were on our way in the opposite direction of where we thought we would be headed to first thing in the morning from LAX (we were headed to Costa Mesa). Thankfully traffic was light and we made it to Alex's house. We began to load the vehicle and come to find out the CRV is NOT an AWD vehicle, which isn't the end of the world but something that definitely would have changed my mind for considering it for driving in the dumping snow in Mammoth. But again, not Alex's fault, just another frustration to this whole experience. We used the car for our trip, ended up working out fine, but we had to try to figure out the logistics of returning our car to Encino from Costa Mesa and still get to LAX by 9am. Thankfully Alex was awesome and worked with us to give us some different options for returning the vehicle, and we eventually settled on a deal to meet up at LAX and not have to drive the extra 1.5-2hrs the morning of our flight. But it still cost us the equivalent another days car rental to arrange that. So I guess the moral of my story is this whole experience turned into way more work and cost than it would have to just rent an AWD SUV from the airport (I had a reservation booked thru Kayak for this trip and it would have been substantially cheaper, especially considering the Ubers that we had to pay for). And there was NO possibility if I had booked from a regular rental company that I would have accidentally booked a reservation in which I would have to drive to Encino to get my car. On top of that, I think Alex didn't get the amount that he actually wanted from the rental, but was gracious enough to honor the pricing. So I feel that he kinda gave up a lot in the deal as well, which does not make me stoked on the experience. I do think Turo would be a great alternative to traditional rental companies if you want to rent a unique vehicle or have a special vehicle need in which you want to know for sure what type of vehicle you are renting. But for the run of the mill rentals, I feel that there were too many opportunities for things to be mixed up or not what you think. I can accept some of the fault for the way the trip turned out, but to be completely honest if I had booked with a regular rental company NONE of the drawbacks would have happened. And we would be a hundred or two dollars richer. Also, on a side note, my personal GEICO car insurance which covers car rentals thru a traditional company, will NOT cover Turo rentals, which then requires you to use the Turo insurance to insure your car rental. The prices aren't outrageous, but if you were thinking about using your own insurance and declining the rental insurance and saving that money, please take note that you will NOT be able to do that using Turo. But again, I want to reiterate that Alex was very accommodating, and did everything he was required to do and then some to help mitigate some of the frustrations of this trip. So if you are into the Turo experience, Alex is a great host. So the 5 star rating is for him. But the overall first time experience of using Turo, unfortunately, was not good. Unless I'm looking for a specific vehicle to rent, or really in a pinch, I will probably not be a repeat user of the service.

I think this is the first time, for any review of any kind that I've written, that I thought the scoring system would be inadequate for me to rank my experience. And make it believable. So out of 5 stars, I'd give it about a 74. Ian did so many small things to make sure that my 'experience' was a favorable one I'm sure I'll forget a few of them but it began with me flying out of Denver in mid March and the blizzard o' the century killing that travel plan by a week and Ian did all the leg work to help me with my existing reservation and keeping the business with him - albeit a different vehicle. Very cool Jeep by the way. So whether it was the re-arrangement of the trip to begin with, new dates, new pricing, new vehicle, etc. I think all we changed was everything and Ian quarterbacked that with me so we stayed on track. Changes in departure and arrival times and the resultant communications. I guess I'll say this. I like to be informed but not inundated. Ian is the consummate communicator. Just the right amount at the right time is what I got from him. He was always one step ahead of me like I'm thinking I better drop him a text with my departure flight info and where to meet or should I just leave the car in Economy parking and - bam - there's his incoming text elegantly going over all the details with the most logical and easy plan for me to return the car. This was my first car rental through Turo and I know one thing for certain. Before I thought I was renting a vehicle and to a certain extent that was true. But I realized that when you have the right kind of "Turo-man" behind the vehicle that's what makes your trip and "experience" way more than leather seats and a sunroof. Ian was simply outstanding and guiding me from afar and the strange thing is we never even met each other. I dont' think we even spoke on the phone?! I think we did everything by text and that's saying something for a 57 year old man to be impressed by not only the technology but simply the best customer...strike that....customer is too weak of a word....I felt like I was a friend of Ian's and the way in which we worked all our details out was extraordinary. If you've read this far let's be clear. You're not renting a car, you're renting the guy or woman behind the car and their commitment to you having a great time with whatever you're doing with their vehicle. I'll change my Tampa travel plans in the future before I give my car business to anybody else. Scott Cler Centennial, CO

Nissan Rogue Sport 2017
Angela was excellent at communicating with me before, during, and after my trip. The Rogue was fully equipped, which I had forgotten about as I'd booked pretty early in advance, so I was surprised by all of the available functions in thew car. Angela was extremely flexible with my pickup and drop-off, and made that part a breeze. The car itself did very well on some of the rough streets in Boston and the south shore. We had the Seat-heaters on almost the whole time... :) The car was extremely clean when we received it--I think the cleanest of my 3 Turo rentals so far so that was appreciated! I think that's just about it--I'm a driving-centric guy so renting a Nissan Rogue was not necessarily my first choice, but between the value and flexibility offered, It was absolutely the best choice for my trip. Thanks Angela!

We loved the Range Rover Sport! The SUV was very clean, spacious, and comfortable. It was a pleasure to work with Tae! He was very pleasant, punctual, and communicated the instructions clearly which made the pickup and dropoff process easy and hassle-free. We were very happy with this rental and we will definitely rent this SUV again for future trips!

Stumbled over this app by accident. Matt is the first host I had. I was late after a very long trip of what nightmares are made of. He was extremely flexible & ever so kind. His attitude is professional & classy. Because of this, my trip transformed into lovely turned into a sweet deal I WILL book with Matt again when in need of a rental

Best experience ever!! We felt like locals the whole trip. The tent was extremely comfortable and easy to put up and down. I highly recommend all the camping gear with this vehicle so you can experience the island the way it should be. Us Alaskans know how to camp and now we are coming home with ideas for our home style camping with our vehicle. They really think of everything you need for your trip. They are an amazing family. Would totally rent from them again!!

Fantastic rental! Communication was great and Jeep was immaculate/exactly as described. Perfect vehicle for a trip to Colorado - helped make our ski vacation a huge success. Highly recommend!

Listen, the car /SUV was immaculate and owners were superb. The owners set us up with crib side pickup and drop off. Upon our trip ending, our fight arrangements needed to change last minute. Having my family race to LAX. The owners of the car changed their schedule for us! In this hustle we can not clean the car sufficiently and the owner could not have been more understanding. Definitely feel comfortable renting from these owners!! 10 stars

Justin is wonderful! His response time to approve your request is quick, his communication regarding pick up was greatly appreciated, and his flexibility to accommodate additional needs on the fly is an exceptional and rare trait that I am so grateful for! His customer service 1000% made my trip a success and fun because it happened to be pouring down heavy rain and a rental car would not have sufficed and would have been the same cost for not as nice of a ride. I was stuck at the airport talking to customer service trying to sort out flights after having flight cancellations and he was so sweet to work logistics with my husband to still be able to accommodate me using the range. He had every right to be annoyed and not even want to deal with us because I wasn’t able to give him a heads up and my arrival time was late as it is, but he treated us with so much goodness I am just blown away that there are still people out there like that! I would recommend him and anything he’s associated with renting out whether that’s a car, motorcycle, house, etc. he was that much of a pleasure to work with!

Man, this made my trip so much easier. I'm a TV Producer so I'm a stickler for plans and traveling with ease and comfort. My in-laws were so impressed that we didn't have to get on a tram or go through a bunch of hoops to get a rental car. Not to mention, it was big enough for our whole family AND less than half the price of having to rent from a major company. I highly recommend!

Arrangements and communication were so easy. It was fantastic to arrive in Kauai, walk out of the airport and jump in the car in minutes verse dealing with the rental companies. The Jeep was clean and in good condition and over a two week trip we only had to refuel once. We would definitely book again given the great communication and ease of booking!

Sabine was very professional during pickup. She made sure my family and I were as comfortable as possible during our trip by contacting us several times to ensure our comfort. Her Jeep was very clean, filled with gas, and ready to go. I would most definitely rent through her anytime I’m in Florida. As well as recommend her service to those needing a vehicle during their vacation. Very Awesome individual!

Thank you Farah for being so wonderful to work with and having a great reliable vehicle to take on a journey to Hana! Farah worked with my needs and was full of aloha. My family and I appreciate your help on a short notice. The best part was pick-up and drop-off long lines to deal with, I loved it! This trip was definitely worth it. I have recommended your company to my other family members and friends!

Gary is the man. This was so far my best experience renting with Turo. The Model X is the future on wheels! I am an EV fanatic and drive 2 EVs myself but Tesla cars blows all expectations away!! The autopilot and supercharging network are unbelievable. The SUV space, luxury, audio system, speed, "fuel" economy, etc simoly leaves me speeches. My family and I know now this will be our next car!

Service was beyond awesome from the very beginning. Before I even rented a car Mr. Amjad and I communicated several times with him answering all questions I had.. Upon Pick-Up not only does his team help pack your bags but check all maintenance and take pictures for you directly before even leaving the lot. Great Vehicle for a road trip down South or wherever the wheels desire. We went from Ohio to North Carolina and then South Carolina before coming home.. Gas burns like a Champ in this hybrid Drop off Service was smoother than hair grease on a slick back. We will definitely choose that family rental feeling over the major rental companies in the future Thank you for the service and reassurance.

Josh is THE MAN! Look no further and rent for this guy. Rented his Chevy Trax for a weekend trip. He was beyond communicative and quick to respond; as well as helpful in his willingness to work with my kooky travel schedule and arrangements. He sets his prices below Turo’s regularly suggested rate; and provides vehicles and service unlike any other renter in the ATX area. If one of his vehicles are available you should jump on its’ll be the best deal in town. I plan to rent from and use his services again.

This is my first time using Turo and I will definitely use it again after my amazing experience. Melissa has been great. We had so many mishaps during our trip such as delayed flight, accidents and I had an emergency surgery but she was really helpful and worked around with our Schedule. She was there on time both pick up and return. The car is very clean and fresh smells like new car. The convenience of renting with Turo cannot topped by other rental companies. I normally use enterprise but my experience with renting Melissa’s jeep was over the top. I definitely recommend renting with her and will use her again in a heartbeat! Thank you so much Melissa!!! You’ve been really great!

Wilmer has the most professional and customer focused car rental on Turo. Amazing service, if you are in the VA/DC/MD area and have the opportunity to rent from him, it will be the best choice you make for your trip.

Honestly Jonathan was professional, communicative, flexible, perfectly on time, and delivered the car that is PERFECT and matched the description to a T. I needed this car to transport some materials to an event- and chose to turo with Jonathan rather than wait in line forever at enterprise and risk enterprise not having an SUV for me. And it was a great choice! Jeeps are the best- allow for having guests in the car + plenty of space to go shopping and transport the goods. I have a feeling I’ll be renting this car aaalllooottt. And for fancy nights out on the town- he has some other options that fit the bill! Jonathan gives turo a good name. #teamjonathan

My family and I really enjoyed the car! A lot! The car was exactly as described, really clean, and it looks like new. Plus, driving this particular SUV is really amazing. You just have to try it for yourself to see what I am talking about. Miguel was super cordial, and the communication with him was extremely smooth. The whole trip went great. I would definitely rent this car again. Thanks, Miguel!

Flawless trip. Wish I had more opportunities to drive it more, as I was preoccupied with family gatherings. Alexander has been friendly, prompt, clear on the entire experience. From beginning to end a top grade professional. The Honda Pilot rental sold 4 of my family members and me as the next family vehicle to buy. So much more spacious than the Toyotas that my brother in law was test driving. I will rent this same vehicle and from Alexander again.

Renting Tyler's Honda Pilot was a first time experience using Turo. I have to say it was an awesome experience. The price of the car beat any and all Car Rental shops. The car was clean and made our trip that much more enjoyable. Tyler was flexible with the dropping off the vehicle a little later than the scheduled time. Our next family getaway we will definitely be looking to rent from Tyler again.

All reviews are true! From the very beginning, Gavi made the entire experience easy and enjoyable. Very quick reaction times on the chat which was great for our family vacation when we had issues with our flights. If that wasn’t good enough, Gavi was fully flexible with the pick-up and drop-off locations. The car was exactly as described, was handed over on-time and clean. I will definitely be coming back to Gavi for any future rentals. Highly recommended!!

We rented Bowen's Cadillac XT5 for our week long trip through Arizona. From the initial reservation to drop off and everything in between - it was all handled seamlessly by Bowen and made for an easy and fun trip for us. The car was perfect for our family and a week's worth of luggage, and extremely comfortable for some long drives through Arizona. Great Turo rental experience. Thank you Bowen!

I have used Turo a few times now for car rentals and have always had a pleasant experience. This past experience with Mike was my best yet. From the get go mikes communication was excellent and prompt. The Jeep was immaculate inside and out, and my girlfriend and I thoroughly enjoyed cruising down the PCH with the top off. Another really nice feature is that Turo reimburses your Uber ride both ways from LAX to the turo valet lot. I would highly recommend Mike and we will definitely use his rentals for future trips.

Our trip to Maui was absolutely amazing! Definitely nice to have a more relaxing feel than Oahu and thoroughly enjoyed driving through all the open farm land and beautiful scenery. Travis was great! Although from Michigan originally, he encompasses he “aloha spirit” to a tee. Very friendly and welcoming, had great communication and made sure to fill us in on some great stuff to do. Also, the car seat he has made it cheaper and easier than flying with our own. We were able to do the noteworthy and famous “drive to Hāna” in his vehicle, which he encouraged, that is usually prohibited by rental companies on the island due to some unpaved pieces. Overall the trip was amazing and Travis played a vital role in amongnit so. Should we visit again, I would definitely make sure to book with him 😊

What an amazing experience. The Jeep was everything our family had hoped for. It was perfectly clean and ran perfect. Kirill could not have been more helpful and flexible. He was stuck waiting for us to get the luggage and extremely flexible when we wanted to extend the trip. If you want the perfect car/jeep rental experience go with Kirill - can’t go wrong. Thank you Kirill!
