Vlad is fantastic. If you are in the North County area and you need to rent a car from someone honest and reliable.. look no further.
Andrew - August 5, 2019
Vlad, has been my favorite host to date across the board within the world of PTP sharing, ie AirBnb, Turo and Uber. His fleet of vehicles are clean and well maintained. Vlad provides cars that are luxurious while offering a price point that’s fair and economical. Each car in his fleet that I’ve driven has had all the bells and whistles making driving less of a chore and more of treat in short; Practicality on a budget. Vlad is extremely easy to get in touch with and will maintain a level of communication with you at your choosing. I couldn’t recommend Vlad snd his fleet more; and I hope whoever is reading this takes the opportunity to rent one of these awesome cars. Kelly

The pickup and dropoff was seemless. Much faster than any formal rental company. The Smart car is super handy for finding parking and weaving in and out of traffic in San Diego. It gets up and goes plenty fast as well. Make sure to bring your own USB cord in order to play music and hook up your gps. One thing to note about Smart Cars is that due to their small wheels, it can be a bit more bumpy and jerky of a ride.But I wouldn't worry about that much unless you are taking it on a long roadtrip. Other than that, the car ran smooth and was great on gas.

Vlad was awesome. Very quick on responding to any concerns or questions you may have about the trip or car. I had booked a mustang from Vlad but a week before, someone totaled it. He recommended the Passat R-line. It was a fast, clean, luxurious car. I’m in the market of buying a new car and I think I may have found what I’ve been looking for. Overall, great service from Vlad. Will be renting from him again
