Car rental alternatives in Pittsburgh, PA

Crossing the
City of Bridges

Sitting at the confluence of three rivers, Pittsburgh is a place where the industrial era collides with contemporary America, so that you’ll find beautifully ornate buildings showcasing sports history — very important history to locals — and refined eateries within the walls of old mills and factories.

If you’re looking in the right places, Steel City is beloved and full of surprises, so grab the keys to your Pittsburgh airport car rental alternative and discover the elegant mysteries of Pittsburgh.

Pittsburgh favorites

Steer your Pittsburgh car rental alternative around the city to check out the wealth of museums, and a few distinctive attractions that have a special place in locals’ hearts.

Duquesne Incline

This funky funicular has been carting visitors up to Mount Washington since the 1870s, and it only takes one look at the view from the top to understand why. The city skyline view is especially stunning at night.

Carnegie Museum of Natural History

Of the four Carnegie museums in town — all of them worthy of visits — this one has some exceptional exhibits, like the glittery gem display, the Hall of Ancient Egypt, and the interactive paleolab.

Randyland

Local celebrity, Randy Gilson, became well-known for turning a North Side warehouse on Jacksonia St into a home and studio by decorating it with psychedelic art made with found ephemera from the streets.

Alan was great!!! This is the first time I had a host be thoughtful enough to leave cash in the car for parking. The hybrid VW was clean and drove great. Check out Alens the new Passat, Range Rover, Mercedes, etc. I will definitely rent from Alen again. The best Turo all star host in Pittsburgh.

Erik's BMW is the perfect car for any occasion. The car drove wonderfully in all the nasty weather the great lakes had to offer and did so in style. Erik made pickup and drop off a breeze with his punctuality and responsiveness. I'll definitely contact him again if I need to rent a car in Pittsburgh.

I came to Pittsburgh to visit family in the area. I am astounded by how expensive big corporation rental cars tend to be and am so grateful for Justin’s Sonic which was both economical to rent and easy on the pocketbook to fuel. Justin was very clear and responsive in his communications. He made it quite easy to pick up and drop off. The number of allowed miles is quite generous and even though the car is a slightly older model it ran great and it had a bonus aux cord so I could listen to my music. I highly recommend Justin if you are traveling to this neck of the woods.

Great car! Previous people didn’t clean as much as I would have liked but returned in better condition to pay it forward. Perfect car for renting, close to the airport bus! I had booked a car with an agency but they require credit cards, Jarrod really saved me a whole lot with this rental! I am very happy! This car made my trip!

Pawares
Toyota Yaris 2007
The bus picked us up at the airport, and it’s only 15 minutes away from the stop. The walk is about 10 minutes, which isn’t too bad. Car was easy to find and was ready to go. What I like the most about this trip is that Jarrod was such a good host. He is very responsive to message. I requested for changes like couple times to switch the dates, and also the returning time literally last minute, and he responded within 10 minutes. So, overall, I really enjoyed what I paid for. If you don’t mind a bit of walk and want to save some money, I definitely recommend renting the cars from him.

Alen was awesome. We had a car booked for our trip and 5 days prior that first owner notified us that his only car was in an accident and we were stuck looking for an alternative. We unfortunately couldn’t get on the line efficiently with Turo for a change and we made the call ourselves to Alen. We had rented from him before so we had his info. Alen was very quick to resolve our dilemma and get us a car that we needed for this trip and stay within budget. Appreciate him and would recommend him as the top host in Pittsburgh!

Bria
Toyota Yaris 2007
Process was super easy and painless! A quick 10 minutes, a cheap Lyft ride to get/return. Instructions on everything were clear and responses when needed were quick. We were running behind both on picking up the car and in a rush to catch our ride when we were returning it at 2:30am but everything was made pretty simple and painless. Car is nothing special but can't beat the price and it gets awesome gas mileage which is just what we needed. Made our trip to Pittsburgh go that much smoother!

I, accidentally, left my favorite insulated cup in the cup holder. It's between the seats and difficult to see so I didn't see it. I hope that Jarrod will return it. Otherwise, I am VERY happy with the rental of this Yaris. It is my fault that I didn't notice that this car doesn't have cruise control. But the car was 'peppy' and in good shape. I enjoyed using it and felt very comfortable in it.

Tarik was very easy to deal with. Him and his Jetta were great. We drove all over and the gas that Jetta used was barely nothing. Best part, He went out of his way to accommodate me when I wasn't able to drop the car off at the pick up location. Like dealing with a friend. Hands down use him if you are anywhere near Pittsburgh. He went out of his way!! Thanks Tarik

Allen
Tesla Model 3 2018
Patrick's Model 3 is awesome and he made the whole process super easy. I had friends coming over for the weekend and needed something with four doors, so why not try out a Tesla and see what all the hype is about? It's well worth it! The car rides smooth whether you're on the highway or zipping around the hills and neighborhoods of Pittsburgh. It takes a little exploring to find some things on the touch screen, but Patrick sent a link to a YouTube tutorial before I picked the car up that explains everything you need. I had the car for a weekend and plugged it in for about an hour to charge at a public charging station, mostly just to see how it works. There's a gauge to tell you how many miles you have left and I never felt like I was going to run out. The GPS even tells you how much charge you'll have after arriving at your destination, so it's easy to plan for. There's an obvious cool factor inherent in driving a Tesla around. I've driven super cars through small towns and never had as much engagement with curious pedestrians and driver's as I had driving this car. Be prepared to have a quick chat with the car next to you at a red light or people walking by at public charging stations. People are very curious about these cars and it's fun to give them your take on it. I loved the Model 3 and would definitely rent from Patrick again! It was easy, fun, and affordable. Give it a shot!

Alen was EXCELLENT to rent from. and made the entire process quite easy from beginning to end. He was very efficient and communicated with me immediately. Pick-up and drop-off were super easy to arrange and the vehicle we rented was wonderful with superb gas mileage. He is a very nice gentleman, well organized, super friendly, cares about his vehicles (which shows) and even more about his customers satisfaction during their driving experience. We will definitely use him in the future on our next return to Pittsburgh.

I just had an awesome rental experience with Jarrod using his Toyota Yaris. I am fairly new to using Turo, he took the time to walk me through how to complete my reservation of the vehicle and was very patient and understanding of my ignorance with the app. He also provided an awesome product. The 2007 Yaris was in excellent condition for a car off it's age and was AWESOME regarding gas millage. And the kicker was I got all of this awesomeness for a really competitive(cheap) rate. I most likely will be a repeat customer.

In Pittsburgh to support my brother who had just had a kidney transplant and would need a ride from the hospital to the hotel when releaser.

A very satisfying experience overall.

Justin had the car ready for us for our 10 day trip. We we're lucky to be already acquainted with the Chevy Sonic because that's the car we have at home, and my mother-in-law has one too. It was clean, ran very well and Justin made the process easy for us. You're on Turo anyways and know the price of big name rental agencies are $$$. The price was perfect for the Sonic and was the reason we went with it. Thanks!

Tarik was a very thoughtful host. I needed to extend my trip because of a family health issue, but the car was booked my another guest. He was kind enough to reach out to the guest and offer them another one of his cars so that I could keep mine longer. Communication was easy and my pick up and return to the airport was effortless. I would definitely book with Tarik again.

This was my first Turo experience and Yasser was just amazing. Not only is he super flexible and friendly, he really does everything in his power to offer great service to people who book his vehicles. Last minute changes were no problem. He was extremely accommodating and on top of that a very knowledgeable man who is great at conversing! If anyone ever needs a car in Pittsburgh, they should get it from Yasser. I really cannot imagine that there is any other car owner on Turo that is as honest and upright as this man!

Clarence was an AMAZING host. He had his vehicle at the pick up right on time and ready to go. It looked better in person than it did in the pictures. When I had a question along the way he was right there to answer it. My wife and I had an amazing time in the slingshot...we liked it so much we bought one haha. If you get a chance, rent Clarence’s amazing ride...most fun we had in a while.

Best Pittsburgh driving roads

Canton Avenue

The 37% grade on Canton Avenue makes it the steepest in the US, so even though it’s only a tenth of a mile long, you’ll want to push your Pittsburgh car rental alternative up this one.

Highway 30

For gorgeous views and sweeping curves on a less traveled road, zip east to Latrobe and head south to Ligonier, or go farther to climb the ridge at Laughlintown.

Lake Wilhelm Scenic Byway

Take your time cruising through farmland north of the city in your PIttsburgh car rental alternative, and take the turnoff for Lake Wilhelm for a pleasant six-mile spin around the lake’s edge.
