Car was clean, easy to use and pick up and drop off where fast and simple. Thanks for letting us cruise around Boise.

Prompt communication and answers to questions in usually less than 15 mins. Car in immaculate condition and he accommodated last min change in dropoff. Will definitely use Brandon when I’m back in Boise - and you should too!

Skip the rental car counter

My wife and I planned our trip to Idaho for the first time to attend our best friends' wedding ceremony. Toby is great at responding to any of our questions and accommodated us wonderfully. This was such a wonderful experience with this ride and everything worked out perfectly. Even when we missed our first flight to Idaho - Toby was very understanding with our situation and made our rental go smoothly. I recommend renting from Toby again - this helped make our experience magical and would love to rent from him again next time we come back to Boise.

Easiest and best car rental experience I’ve ever had. Great vehicle, super comfortable and a smooth drive. Ryan could not have been friendlier, and made everything simple and seamless. He responds quickly, had the car waiting at the airport, and his pricing is more than fair. Impeccable service and experience all around. (Applause)

This was my first experience with renting a car outside of a traditional car rental. It was so easy and convenient I couldn’t believe it- and the car was much better than anything I would’ve gotten!

In my experience, Danny communicates well, is straightforward, provides good equipment, good pricing, Dan showed Great integrity, by being true to his word, being where and when he says, even if it’s not his issue to resolve. In short, a business man running a car rental business in Turo. I hope to run across more Danny’s. My experience? You can trust him. Pat

Steven is fantastic, he was always available if I had questions about the car or Idaho, always very friendly. Car gets great gas mileage and is exactly what I needed to travel/camp across Idaho. Is there such a thing as 7 star rating?

We really enjoyed driving Kimberly’s car. We picked it up at the Boise airport and drove it all the way to Redfish Lake. Thanks to her affordable car, we were able to have a Dream vacation on a budget. This was our first experience getting a car through Turo, and it won’t be our last.

Working with Christopher was so easy and such a professional experience I would recommend it to everyone. His car is amazing, the white interior is so beautiful and the entire experience is exhilarating and stress-free. It took our vacation to a higher level in the overall experience of Idaho. The long range capability of this car was not 310 miles like Tesla advertises it actually was 323 miles. Recharging at a supercharger in Boise or Twin Falls was extremely easy. If you’re looking for a great experience in renting a car you have arrived. If you really want to know all the details and the validity of this review call me directly. Leave a message and let me know it’s in relation to this post otherwise I might think you’re a telemarketer. QUINT 605 759-7795.

Rian's bright yellow fiat was the perfect addition to the trip home with family. Utterly prompt, and a delight to drive, this little bit of sunshine had the added bonus of friends and family seeing me when I was coming towards them on the highway... you will be just about the only bright yellow spot on the road. Added bonus, this car is pretty wonderful for the fuel efficiency. The last time I rented a Fiat 500 was in Italy, this trip had all those same vibes. Thank you again Rian for the great communication and ultra prompt pick up and drop off at BOI. I would rent again in a heartbeat. You and this car made my trip a reality.

Once again, an amazing and accommodating trip with this car. I’ve rented this car twice now and both times, the owners have been extremely accommodating to my husband and I. This car is super luxurious and HARDLY USES ANY GAS! Highly recommend this car! Much better than dealing with the crappy rental car companies at the airport!

Subaru Outback 2008
Ryan’s Outback was great for the small dirt roads we (5 of us!) took on a short camping trip, and getting around town. Roof rack is also easier to use than most SUV’s, which made getting a larger vehicle unnecessary. I used about 1 whole tank of gas for the entire trip, and Ryan was politely flexible with our exact pickup/drop off plans. And for you Subaru devotees out there (like me) the 3.0 does make a big difference when the car is full of people, luggage and groceries.

Do not hesitate to rent from Aleksander he was very prompt with response and the drop off was seamless! Car was in perfect condition. Will be renting from him again no doubt .

Our flights were canceled so we arrived a day late. Owner communicated with us and was willing to meet us when we finally arrived. Great little car for a short weekend trip. Owner "raced" our bags to baggage claim so we walked right out the door and got in. Definitely recommend if you don't need a bunch of space!

Kimberly's car was so awesome for my son and I to visit family in the magic valley area. I was concerned about the car not having four wheel drive and hitting patches of ice or snow but this car did great when we did come across any hazardous roads. Bought and returned snow chains as a backup. Car was easy to locate at airport. Hands down a great experience and will contact Kimberly for all future trips to Boise.

This was my first Turo experience and Brandon was very patient and helpful! He has three cars and I strongly recommend using one of them! Everything was super smooth! I rented the Audi since I have one myself! It ran well and was clean! I just took a short Uber ride to his house and he has loco boxes with the car keys in them! I'm a huge Turo fan now! Thanks Brandon

This was my first time using Turo. Ryan made it so easy and pleasant. A text message with a picture made it so easy to find the car and be on our way in a jiffy. There was even a dollar left to pay the airport exit fee! The car was clean and drove like a charm with lots of space for our luggage. I would definitely do this transaction again. Thanks Ryan.

My youngest kiddo and myself completely enjoyed our road trip through Idaho and Montana in Toby's 500. Having the top down made the long drives so much more enjoyable. His pick up and drop off procedure is easy peasy. His responses are instant and he is more than flexible. Thank you for "lending" this pocket size vehicle, we made lifetime memories on our trip.

Best Boise driving roads

Hells Canyon Scenic Byway

Backed by towering cliffs and stunning canyons, Hells Canyon Scenic Byway is a road trip to remember. From Boise, drive two hours north to Cambridge and make a pit stop before continuing onward.

Sawtooth Scenic Byway

Escape the bustling city and into the heart of nature. Journey along Sawtooth Scenic Byway in your Boise car rental for sweeping views of the foothills and consider dipping your toes in the Kirkham Hot Springs.

Ponderosa Pine Scenic Byway

A scenic route between Boise and Stanley, you’ll pass by dense pine forests, picturesque dams, and twist across mountain valleys along the Ponderosa Pine Scenic Byway.
