Big thanks to Tianshuang for his last minute accommodation to my late night rental. All other car rental places were closed but Tianshuang made it! Tianshuang is a very caring host, honest, friendly, and straightforward. The car is very clean and fun to drive. I will rent from him again soon.

Tianshuang‘s 7 series is the definition of perfect for Turo trip. This car is amazing. The moment you start it you immediately feel the elegant of the luxury BMW. Head up display, M sport packages etc really make me feel like Tom Cruise of the mission impossible. The flat Matte black paint is beautifully unreal!! Draw a lot of attention when we get to the club. Tianshuang is amazing! He is super flexible and a clear and responsive communicator. Renting from him is really hustle free. I will only rent from him when I came to Chicago.

I’ve never used this service before, but a bad experience with Enterprise Car Rental left me desperate at the last minute. Matt was great to work with and very understanding. He was responsive to all my endless questions and changes.

Amazingly nice person! Didn’t sit there and nickel and dime us for anything! We went through one toll (75 cents I think) and didn’t charge us! Extremely clean nice car and very flexible with the flight issues we had. If you rent a car in Chicago it needs to be from Elina!!!!

Will has great car. I always wanted to drive one. This Turo gave me the oppertunity. In the past I would use the major car rental companies and it always turned into a hassle one way or the other. “Will” took care of that also while juggling a couple of unforscene problems. When you rent a car from “Will” he has a good support system so it’s not just him , that’s why I definitely am going to use him in the future.

I was a little skeptical about driving a Mercedes for that cheap price. I was thinking either the car wouldn’t be good or it’s a scam. But honestly, Steve is an amazing gentleman to do business with. I still can’t believe I drove such a beautiful vehicle for that price. Steve over communicated to get me up to speed on schedule and also made sure everything was going well while I had the vehicle. This is my first trip with Turo and Steve has really given me a very good first impression. Thank you Steve for all your help. I’ll make sure to find you whenever I come to Chicago. I highly recommend Steve to everyone who wants to enjoy riding in a beautiful luxury car for less.

Michael was a pleasure to deal with from start to finish. Besides providing a well kept car with super gas mileage, Michael included 1000 miles, an EZ PASS and cell phone charging cables. He was personable and accessible, and gave prompt and curbside delivery. We highly recommend Michael. He was SO much less stressful to work with than many standard car rental companies we have used. We're glad we found him.

I normally drive the i3 and Mini Cooper (both BMW) in Europe so I was pretty excited to get behind the Series 5 sportspack from Steven. The 2-week experience was in general 5 stars but I like to leave fair reviews for future Turo drivers so here we go: Pros: 1. The car was great, especially comfy on the ride from Chicago to Madison 2. Great pickup on the highway when you need to switch lanes. Definitely switch to Sports mode (shift the gear to the left to engage) 3. Even though I thought I wouldn't need it, the heated seats and wheel actually came in handy for a couple of those chilly/rainy evenings (despite the fact that I rented in early summer. Oh well, Chicago..) 4. Roomy in front and the back. Loved the sunshades in the back. 5. Dropping off the car in his truck-trailer and picking it up in the same way is a really professional touch with a massive cool-factor. 6. Affordable. I got a great rate for the 2-weeks! Cons: 1. No iPass. I'm happy to pay for the toll amounts afterwards through Turo or PayPal (I just value the convenience of iPass over carrying change in the car. It's also cheaper.) 2. There's limited room at the airport terminal for pick-up and drop-off so transfer of keys and car handover is almost too quick! I would recommend a calmer staging area near the airport for pick-up/drop-off (like a large parking lot/gas station) 3. The car wasn't as clean when I picked it up. Would've liked a deep clean before it was delivered to me. I actually found a boarding pass of the previous Turo driver in the seat (privacy!). Also, halfway through the trip I had to top up a quart of engine oil. The bluetooth seemed a little buggy at times. Overall, I'd rent from Steven again as long as he works out some of these details.

My daughter was graduating college and we needed a car from Ohare. This was way better thsn a standard car rental...I was able to communicate directly with Eric, he was most accomodating and even gave us a few extras. The car was super nice, drove well, and now my son wants "a car like that" 😊. Next trip to Illinois I'll definitely use one of Eric's cars!!

BMW i8 2015
⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ 5-star Turo renter and rental. Convenient pickup location, very professional renter. The BMW i8 is an AMAZING car that will surpass your expectations. I have driven every /M car (2-6), and in a way I like this more than all of them. It's definitely more exotic than any current factory BMW, the performance from the Sports mode is comparable to most any /M car, especially 0-60. The noise sounds similar to a supercar and the handling might be better than most. The amount of attention this car gets is something else. I highly recommend this car. The rental price is fair, and not requiring a deposit (at the time of my rental) makes this listing idea. Extremely accessible to someone with a lower budget, really nice. Again, I highly recommend this car. Supercar experience for a reasonable price.

I will rent from Jesus EVERY time I’m in Chicago! I have to admit, I was a little hesitant to try Turo, but I love Air BnB, and this is like Air BnB for cars! So glad I tried it. Just like Air BnB, TRUST THE REVIEWS. I chose Jesus because his reviews were so outstanding, and they did not disappoint. He was kind, courteous, helpful, accommodating, and had excellent communication, which is such an asset when you’re in a new city. If you’re looking at other renters, STOP. THIS IS YOUR GUY.

The Camry was in good working order. The air conditioning worked very well and cooled the car down quickly, which is important in Chicago with the summer heat/humidity.. Communication was GREAT! We had an extremely early flight and asked for an altered ending time/place. Alena was very flexible and met our need and request. It was a tremendous help and we greatly appreciate it! We will certainly spread with word to our friends who use Turo that when they are in Chicago, they can count on Dmitry and Alena. I will definitely rent again from the next time in Chicago. Overall, it was a 5+ 👍 experience; thanks to you our trip went extremely well.

The Dmitry's were super friendly and helpful. They provided me with directions from the place where I was located, being new to Chicago this was greatly appreciated. The car was very clean and it worked perfectly. Everything was as advertised. I recommend their car to anyone looking for a rental in the Chicago area. I would rent from them again if the opportunity presents itself.

Tessa is awesome and made my first Turo rental a breeze. Picking up and dropping off her car were extremely quick and easy. She was where she said she’d be ahead of schedule and kept in touch so we were on the same page. Her car was clean and ran great. I would absolutely rent with her again next time I’m in the Chicago area.

Steven was really nice and communicative responsive. He made sure to check up with me before the pick up and return. Car was very clean and nice. The price I paid for the car rental was also very cheap compare to all the other cars on turo and he offers pick up and drop off from ord airport. All the other cars on turo had an expensive fee of $75-100 to meet at the ord airport, so if ur coming from ord airport I definitely suggest this car!

This was my first time using Turo & Michael was amazing! If I had any questions he answered them back in a timely manner, he was very nice, the car was perfect for what I needed out of my trip. I would/will definitely be contacting Michael again when using turo. By using Turo, I was able to pay almost more than half of what a car rental would’ve charged me from the airport. This was a great experience I would definitely recommend trying the Turo app to friends & family. Pick up & drop off at he airport was a breeze, I didn’t have to deal with any paperwork like at a car rental place or anything. If you’re in Chicago definitely contact Michael, he was awesome!

There's few hosts that go above and beyond to give the best to their customers. Steven is one of them. First, he has a fantastic car collection with even more fantastic prices. Second, he is humble and will make sure you trip is seamless. He communicates well, and provides amazing service right from pick up. The car came in a freaking trailer! Third, he maintains his cars very well. The car was immaculate both outside and inside. I've never had a car rental/ Turo experience like this before, and I highly recommend him! As far as the car goes, this is one comfortable ride. Specially for long distance driving. A two and a half hour drive seemed like a breeze, thanks to the massaging driver's seat and soft suspension, and adaptive cruise control. Blocks off road noise very well, and paired with the Harmon/ Kardon stereo system, it takes very good care of your entertainment needs. The acceleration is more than plenty, and the ride is smooth. The handling is great, with a little body roll around corners, but not bad at all for a car this size. It was a pleasure to drive!

This is the first time I rented his Lexus and the car was awesome! Clean and fully loaded! Heated/cooling seats, Navigation, Moonroof, etc. AND it’s a luxury All-Wheel Drive sedan—perfect for Chicago! Thanks again Dee for another phenomenal experience! I’m happy to see your fleet grow so I have multiple dependable options when I’m in town for work.

The vehicle was clean, very well maintained, reliable, and handled beautifully. This is a great car to drive on extended trips especially if you want comfort, quality, phenomenal value for money, and a much more interesting car than the Chevy Spark that costs the same at a traditional rental business.

Greg made the process of renting seamless and enjoyable. He's flexible with pickup/return times, responds to questions or concerns in an instant, and his cars are some of the most affordable to rent on Turo. If you need a car, rent it from Greg. Best value. 5-Star service!

This Prius was perfect for our time in Chicago. Preston was waiting on us when we arrived and was at the airport ready to pick up the car when we returned. Getting almost 50 MPG was amazing! The car is in great condition for being 10+ years old, but does have a few small dings and signs of cosmetic wear and tear. Would recommend this car and renting from Preston to anyone!

Chris had great communication and was very helpful and flexible when our international flights got delayed 24hours. He was able to work with Turo and approve changing my reservation to start and end 24 hours later than originally planned. He even dropped off the car and collected it at the end curbside from our terminal. The car itself was an absolute BLAST! Launch mode is INSANE and autopilot is great for that Chicago stop and go traffic! We will definitely rent from Chris again and recommend him and his Tesla P90D!

6 stars out of 5. Punctual, clean car, hassle free, friendly, etc. why even bother renting with the agencies when you have to cram on an old bus, get tossed around for 15 minutes, then stand in line at the rental car place for 30 minutes, and budget 1 hour before returning to make sure you have enough time to drop off the car, get the shuttle, etc.

My girlfriend and I needed a car to travel to a wedding a few hours north of Chicago. Due to Elian’s glowing reviews and competitive pricing, we selected her blue Ford Focus. We were VERY impressed with the cleanliness of the car, it was spotless. And Elina made everything so easy, from picking us up at the airport to dropping us back off at the end. She even tracked our flight to ensure everything would happen on time. Her communication was also professional and timely. I HIGHLY recommend using Elina’s cars and we will definitely become repeat customers the next time we need a car in Chicago!!!

Eric really went out of his way to make my trip with the family to Chicago less stressful. He has car seats for the kids which saved me having to lug them around the airport and he accommodated our super late arrival at midnight! He obviously takes pride in customer service and making his customers happy. He’s our new go-to guy when visiting the family in chicago. Thanks again Eric!

My trip to Chicago was amazing and having car from Steven played a huge role in that. I did not have to worry about transportation thanks to the availability of an excellent and affordable vehicle. After meeting him for the first time he gave me the full rundown of the car and made sure I was comfortable before setting off. His flexibility and willingness to pickup AND drop-off the car at convenient locations made my trip even better. Steven made sure to keep constant communication prior to, during, and towards the end of my trip to ensure that everything was going okay. Next time I'm in the Chicago area, I hope to rent a car from him again and highly recommend anyone else in the area to do the same. Thank you very much, Steven for your services.

Micheal communicated with me anytime I needed anything. It was my first experience with Turo, and I enjoyed it much better then the car rental place. I would recommend Michael for anyone that wants to rent.

Gustavo was amazing to rent from him. He texted/messages back very quickly and was flexible and relaxing about the whole ordeal. His car was clean and ran perfectly fine. I would definitely recommend him and rent a car from him again if I come back to Chicago. He was very friendly!

Michelle was very communicative and made the entire rental, pickup, and drop-off easy. Very helpful when needed and pleasant to work with. The car was amazing. Great to be able to rent such a great car when it's nearly impossible to find one to buy at MSRP. Michelle, Turo, and the Type R are all highly recommended.

Best Chicago driving roads

Illinois Route 66

Built in 1926, this historic drive still boasts some sections of brick-paved road, and for a blast from the past, pull your Chicago car rental alternative into a retro diner or filling station.

Galena, IL

Head 150 miles east from Chicago to find this hilly area full of stunning vistas and exciting twists and turns that will let your Chicago car rental alternative show its stuff.

Spoon River Valley

Hop in your Chicago car rental alternative and drive west along the Illinois River for the 140-mile scenic drive into the Spoon River Valley. You’re bound to find antiques, festivals, and homemade treats along the way.
