Everything went fine. Especially the pick up and return process. Most importantly though, communication with Vlad is amazing. He helped me out a lot throughtout the whole journey. Every car rental agency should take an example out of his service. Vielen Dank!

Andre was an excellent host all the way from the pick up to the drop off. I was in a car accident with my personal vehicle and my car was in a body shop. The shop kept changing the pick up date on my vehicle so I had to request multiple extensions on my Turo rental. Andre was very understanding and flexible I will definitely be riding again I highly recommend Andre.

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, 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
