Very pleased. Ritesh was very professional and friendly. Never done this before. I will definitely start doing this instead of car rental agencies.

From picking me up at the airport to coordinating the return everything was VERY easy. The car was clean, well maintained and MUCH better than the tin cans that you get from the typical car rental places. Very much recommend.

Audi A8 2015
John came to the airport and dropped the car off curbside. It was really impressive and so much easier than traditional rental cars. His A8 was great and drove like a dream.

Mercedes-Benz SLK-Class 2010
The car was amazing! The Mercedes was so much fun to drive, great condition, and honestly my favorite car I have ever driven(And I’ve had BMWs Jaguars to a 1969 Mustang).Was more than just a car rental, but a vacation that my fiancé and I enjoy, even just going to the grocery store became a special experience. Carlos was awesome! Not only was he a kind, friendly, reliable guy, but he truely wanted us to have the best experience possible!! When there was a confusion on my part about pickup time, he was understanding and went out of his way to make sure we were able to get the car and not have to cancel. Highly recommend both Carlos and his beautiful ride!

Loved my entire trip using May's car rental service. Very easy & no hassle at all. Communication was great. My family & I enjoyed our time with our rental. Will defenetly rent again through her.
Corinna M. - April 14, 2019

As always one of the best providers on turo, if not the absolute best provider. If you're looking to rent a car I would recommend May 100%

Dodge Charger 2015
This was my first Turo experience and it was an excellent one. David’s Charger was a great car to rent. In addition to being a “Hemi”, it had all the goodies and was everything I hoped it would be. His directions on where to pickup the car were detailed and accurate. He kept me informed of all the rental requirements. It was a pleasure to rent from David and I highly recommend him if you have car rental needs in the Austin area.
Quentin R. - May 5, 2019

May was great and the car was very pleasurable to drive. Definitely not the last time I rent a car from her. Highly recommend.

Best rental car experience ever!! First time using Turo and I only ever want to use this app to rent cars here on out. Trey was super nice and quick to respond and the car couldn’t have been better for my trip to Austin! Definitely recommend this car to anyone visiting that wants a reliable and great car to drive around!

Pavel was a fantastic host to us during our visit to Austin for Memorial Day weekend. His Corvette is a beautiful, high-performance sports car. It was spotless and delivered with a full tank of gas. Pavel was easy to interact with during the entire rental, and we appreciated his courtesy and professionalism. Highly recommended!

Toyota Prius 2009
Hello everyone, I rented Edgar's grey Toyota Prius for around 3 days here in Austin TX. Overall we had a great time with the car. For starters, Edgar made pickup and delivery of the vehicle super easy. We had no issues with the car as it was well maintained. You cannot beat the cost effectiveness of 46 mpg or more, I think we spent 13 bucks the whole trip and we drove EVERYWHERE in Austin. Overall Edgar was awesome and was quick to get back to us when we had any questions. He even dropped us off at our terminal on our departure. We will definitely rent again with Edgar when we are in town, thanks again for the nice ride! Jon

FIAT 500 2015
Excellent Turo renter! Don't be concerned about the Fiat's size, it had plenty of room for a large guy like me. A/C is ice cold, which is awesome here in Austin, yet still gets great gas mileage. Car is in really nice shape. Process was shockingly simple to pick up and drop off the car, about 100x faster than a normal rental car agency. Would HIGHLY recommend Kenny for your next Turo rental.
Robert Christopher L. - June 1, 2019

Juan was very kind & courteous as well as flexible when it came to extending my trip by an hour. His car was very clean & neat almost as if no one has driven it before. If I am ever in Austin again I will most definitely rent his car again.
Marisa R. - June 21, 2019

Hands down best car rental experience I’ve had! Great communication, flexibility, and the ride was smooth. I will definitely use this car again! Thanks Ritesh!
Devon R. - November 10, 2018
Ford Fusion 2014
Trey was very flexible with our flight being delayed, and our slight offset in departure time. Trey's car was actually nicer to drive than the Cadillac we rented on our last vacation from a normal car rental. Picking up airport curbside and on our way in 5 minutes is lightyears better than the traditional car rental experience. 5 stars!

Toyota Prius 2011
We rented a Prius from Wes for 10 days in Austin. I have never driven a hybrid for that amount of time and I was so surprised by how well it handled and how little gas it used. Wes was also very responsive and everything went way better than renting from a car rental company. No insurance and equipment up sells, no shuttles, no additional charges like for my wife to drive etc. This is our 2nd experience with Turo and they have both been great
Peter L. - April 11, 2019

Mario was awesome to rent a car with and the car was great! Would definitely rent again.
Erika S. - March 9, 2019
Volkswagen Passat 2013
This was the first time I used Turo. I was impressed with Juan's attention to detail and concern that I knew what I should before driving off. The car was immaculate and ran perfectly. On a scale of 1 to 10, Juan gets a 10+. I will gladly use Juan's car again when I need a car rental for a few days.
Daniel K. - May 1, 2019
BMW 3 Series 2014
I couldn’t have picked a better experience in regards to rental cars. I didn’t have to wait in line at the airport, the car was clean, and the process was extremely reliant and easy. The car owner was personable and friendly when I had questions and made sure I was all set! An added bonus: this car will make you want to personally purchase a BMW- looked and drove AMAZING.
Jenna J. - April 18, 2018
Lexus CT 200h 2012
I needed a car just for the weekend and was so happy to have rented this one! The Lexus hybrid was amazing on gas, made me feel like I was driving a luxury brand, and Ritesh was even more cool by helping drop me off to my hotel after the rental completed. I will definitely be renting this again next time I'm in Austin for work! Thanks!!!
Shantanu D. - July 23, 2018

Renting from Paul was a great experience. Excellent communication, beautiful car, and the flexibility in extending my rental an extra day was a huge convenience for my trip.

I absolutely feel in love with Amelia EOS. She’s ruined me for life cause now I NEED a convertible. The car was pristine and she made pick up and drop off a breeze. Will totally rent from Amelia next time I’m in Austin!

Asson showed up in a timely manner for both pickup & drop off. Car was very clean upon arrival and was a quality vehicle for our trip. Highly recommendable for your trips to Austin. Super nice guy.

Great Car! Turo made our trip to Austin easy. We paid for Airport drop off and pickup. Highly recommend it! Took up literally 1 minute to drop off.

Maserati Quattroporte 2014
I had an incredible trip. This Maserati is absolutely amazing! The sound of the engine, the exhaust note, the carbon fiber interior. I could go on and on. This car just oozes class and performance. Pick up and drop off was effortless. Chris and Drive on Demand are great owners! You can tell they have a passion for cars as evidenced by how well this car is cared for. I plan to rent again from Drive on Demand's impressive fleet and would recommend them to anyone than enjoys the thrill of an amazing drive!
Andrew R. - June 16, 2019
Mercedes-Benz SLK-Class 2010
2nd trip with Carlos and once again, had a blast! The car really makes a boring drive to Dallas a fun exciting experience! He was super kind when I woke up late and missed the drop off time by a few hours. I felt terrible but he was super professional! This is our go to rental! For all future trips
Lucas H. - June 12, 2019
Toyota Prius 2009
I had to pay for a garage parking fee at pickup to exit the airport parking structure, but Edgar followed-up to make sure I got reimbursed for that cost. His communication was excellent throughout the trip. Older Prius car with some nicks and bruises, but it worked fine and the cost was much less than a rental car.
Jonas B. - June 21, 2019
Toyota Corolla 2014
Allan was incredible! He was very professional and extremely friendly. He took great care of us and definitely went above and beyond to give us a safe and very positive experience. Allan will be our go to man for future Austin area trips!

Toyota Yaris 2013
Emily was great at letting me know what to do before I picked up the car and dropped it off. She also let me pick up the car later than I scheduled it and drop it off early. She didn’t charge me for anything unexpected (I was concerned about a few scratches already on the exterior of the car), and seems like an honest person. She just hands you the key and leaves so you can get going on your trip right away. I would say that if you have any questions about the car or want more assurance that she is aware of existing damage, be ready to ask right away when you get the key. When I dropped the car off, Emily sent me instructions on where to park, I took my checkout photos, and she told me to lock the key in the glove compartment since she wasn’t there to get the key. It was easy. The car (White Yaris) was nice and worked well (especially the AC in the TX heat). It doesn’t accelerate very fast, but it seemed reliable. Gas was only about $20 bucks, so definitely choose to fill it up yourself before you drop it off. It was so easy to get a Lyft from and back to the airport, so the extra $120 airport delivery is not really worth it (its only about $20 for the Lyft). The only thing I would say is that finding the Lyft pickup area at the AUS airport is a bit tricky, but there are signs and everyone I asked was very helpful. Emily provided coupon codes for both Turo and Lyft, which was very helpful. Definitely would ride with her again if I came back to Austin.

Easy to locate, keys were in a easy to find location. Secure. Great car, smooth drive and great on gas. Would recommend Danny to anyone he was always quick to respond and allowed me to extend my trip on two occasions. Very happy with my first Turo rental.
David A. - June 14, 2019

Had a stress free and enjoyable experience thanks to Chris from Drive on Demand. The car was in perfect condition and really fun to drive! We will be renting again when back in Austin!

Absolutely zero complaints. Impeccable service. If all people on Turo are like Michael then I will never use another car rental agency again. Thank you for everything Michael.

Emily’s car rental was quick and convenient. She walked me through every step and drop off took me about 2 minutes. Would recommend

My trip was so flawless with Chessie; from the ease of pick-up and drop-off to the overall Turo experience. I highly recommend Chessie for your car rental needs

Little Miss May is truly the Turo Madam of Austin. She has sixteen different cars to choose from and she is Asian Superman fast texting you back.

I can’t say enough good things about Bojan or Turo. This was my first time using the service so of course I was skeptical. I wasn’t traveling alone with 2 small children who required car seats. The idea of waiting in a rental car line and carrying around luggage, car seats and all the carry ins seemed exhausting even before the trip began. As soon as we landed Bojan was right at the curb after I got our bags. When it was time to head ack to the airport I needed an extra 30 min and he couldn’t have been more accommodating. His wife met me right at the curb again exactly on time. I will ALWAYS use this service rather than a regular rental and spread the word!

We used Warner’s Tesla for a lovely overnight trip from Austin to Waco. Great experience!

Asson was outstanding in all aspects. I would recommend him to anyone needing a car in Austin. I will also use him again when we return in august. Captain Bob Edwards

This car was absolutely amazing for driving around the hill country! For a sports car, it's got some real muscle to it. It handles very well and is overall a fantastic experience. Everything about the rental process was straightforward. No complaints!
Andrew C. - June 4, 2019
Toyota Corolla 2006
Manish was incredibly nice and easy to work with. His communication was lightning fast, often responding within minutes. The pickup and drop off were quick and easy, and we had no issues with the car. He even offered to move our drop off location if we paid for his Uber to get there (of course YMMV with this). Overall, the experience was everything I wanted it to be and and I can see why Manish is one of the highest rated lenders in Austin.
Ohan F. - June 5, 2019

Renting this VW from Yasser was a great experience. I’d say that this is what Turo is all about: nice car, good pricing, and great people to deal with!! I recommend him 100%!!
Nelo V. - June 6, 2019

Had a small hiccup but Edgar communicated everything great and had everything smoothed out without a hitch. Super easy pick up and return and would rent with him again! This is the man to rent from if you’re going to the Austin area!!

Santosh was a great host and the car was immaculate. The check in and drop off process was very convenient thanks to Santosh’s hospitality and clear directions. I have rented many cars on Turo and can say that Santosh is 5 star all the way. I would definitely rent from him again. -Craig

First time using Turo - couldn’t be happier. Went on a trip to Houston and wanted to ride in style. I’ve never driven an Audi before so this was a treat. The car is absolutely fantastic. Clean, quiet, and smooth. I’m so impressed with the quality of the ride and Mario is very helpful and responsive. Pickup and drop off were very convenient. I will rent this car again. Great experience overall.
Steve C. - June 15, 2019

Ritesh is great to deal with. This car was absolutely perfect for my trip.
Mark A. - June 15, 2019
FIAT 500 2015
Not what I was expecting, in a good way. Pop this little thing into sport mode with techtronic shifting, changes the whole driving dynamic. Madison is super nice gives you a run down of the options, and tells you to have fun. If I’m in Austin again and this 500 is available, I will be renting again.
Sean B. - June 23, 2019

Best experience ever! Daniel is completely reliable & this car kicks ass. I'd rate transaction a 10 with a fun factor off the charts! Do yourself a favor & rent this car

You will not be disappointed.

Davie's car got great mileage and he was easy to work with. I would recommend him to anyone who wants to rent a car without the ridiculous expense of a rental company.

Lukasz was a great example of what Turo should be all about - Super convenient, great value, and service. Totally made our trip worry free and no standing in line at the car rental office - he met us at the airport curbside and the hand-off was seamless.

This was a great little car for our Austin/ San Antonio trip. It was so easy to use the convertible top and the little car was also great on gas. Gary was so easy to deal with! Communication was great and simple. Highly recommend this little car for exploring the Texas hills and cool downtown areas and we fit a full size suitcase in the trunk!
Tress T. - April 23, 2019
FIAT 500 2015
Such a great experience with Madison’s Abarth! It made our trip so much fun as we did quite a bit of driving from our hotel to downtown Austin. Madison was awesome and made our airport pickup and drop off super easy. When we got into the Abarth, it was completely spotless and super clean. She really takes care of this car! She took her time to show us different functionalities of the car to ensure we didn’t leave with any questions. We really loved driving this car and will definitely be renting again if we make our way back to Austin one day!
