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.

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!

Miguel S. - May 5, 2019

This was my first Turo experience. As such, I had an inordinate amount of questions, which I directed to my car host, Lucas. At no time did Lucas get frustrated with my inquiries, answering each in an informative, expedient, and courteous manner. The Honda was clean, comfortable, problem-free and a pleasure to drive. Thank-you Lucas!
Corey C. - May 5, 2019

Sam was amazing. He rented this car to me last minute with no hesitation when another host canceled on me. Pick up and drop off was super easy and fast. Loved the vehicle

Brandon M. - June 10, 2019
Honda Insight 2010
1) Pick up and delivery of the vehicle was a breeze (and free -Thanks!). Just follow the instructions that Austin sends. I also really appreciated the flexibility of pick up times as I arrived late at night. Many Turo hosts don't have pick up /delivery times past a certain time , so this was really convenient for me. 2) The Honda Insight I rented from Austin was great. It still drives smooth. I'm a Honda guy and I have to say Hondas are super reliable cars (pardon my bias). It was also my first experience driving a hybrid and I was really impressed with the gas mileage. I also appreciated the mileage usage Austin offers with this car. Especially because my drive home is about a 1.5Hr drive and I also had a few errands to run; I didn't have to worry about going over. 3) Austin is prompt in responding , provides clear instructions about vehicle pick up/delivery/return (just read them thoroughly), and is available to call him if you have any questions. Thanks Austin

Audrey B. - June 12, 2019

Isaac was very punctual. He was great at communicating the pick up and drop off instructions. He was great at answering any questions I had. He made my first experience with Turo very easy, simple and convenient. Would highly recommend him. Will be renting again with him 🙌👏

Keith communicated regularly and clearly throughout the process. Pick up and drop off were extremely convenient, much more than a corporate rental car company. The Honda Civic earned 38.5 mpg for the trip! I recommend Keith and his Civic with highest regards.
Bradley C. - July 3, 2018
Honda Civic 2015
Everything went perfect! Chicago traffic is awful but Keith was very understanding and helpful! I will absolutely rent from him again! The car was amazing too and great on gas! One of the best rental experiences to date!

Elina is totally awesome. She is so on it, prompt, a total life saver. This is my second trip with her car and love that I can rent the same car every time. I will use her every time I’m in Chicago. She’s wonderful. Can’t say enough good things about her.
Laura H. - August 31, 2018

Great car!!!! Sustainable and Eric made things easier to drive arround Chicago. I recommend widely to rent this car from Eric.
Fernando C. - November 7, 2018
Honda Civic 2012
Abraham’s car worked great!! He left it in an easy to find spot but if you are directionally challenged finding a car in a parking lot can be stressful. I got upset and wasn’t very nice but he stayed nice the entire convo. Car had no issues. Cosmetically it isn’t perfect and the passenger side window doesn’t work but i would for sure rent from Abraham.
Julia V. - March 26, 2019

Renting Sam’s car was easy and convenient. Location was not to far from the airport and he was always available and quick to respond to messages.

Eric R. - February 16, 2019

Everything was very good. Only two things to note: the headlights are relatively dim, so we had to use the high beams when it was completely dark outside and the amount of miles available to us made our road trip a lot more comfortable

I cannot thank Keith enough for his professionalism, flexibility, and understanding. My flight to ohare was cancelled. It was due to arrive at 0645 and never arrived. Instead, I flew to a different city. Keith arranged a different pick up place the next evening so I didn't have to try to find a different car for my trip. He is the epitome of professionalism. Do not hesitate to do business with him. O yeah, the car is near perfect as well.
Andrew P. - May 24, 2018

Ilya F. - January 25, 2018

Car needed a cleaning but it is winter time. Convenient to work with. Will rent again.
Anthony H. - February 5, 2018
Honda Insight 2010
Communication was excellent both at reservation and upon our arrival. I called the parking garage as instructed and they were quick and helpful. Chicago O'Hare is a little confusing for the first time traveler. We were able to take care of some personal business and return in a timely fashion. A note for those unfamiliar with the area. Our GPS brought us back to the parking deck via a toll road. The suggested exit was electronic pass only. We went to the next exit and it was exact change only with no staffing. Just be aware you may need change for tolls. Over all a very good first time TURO experience.
Walter B. - February 8, 2018
Honda Insight 2010
The car was clean and ran well! It snowed during my booking; I felt that the car was well equipped to get me through the snow. Also, Ruddy was very flexible. He dropped the car off to me at the airport, no charge. Ruddy also accommodated me when returning the car, due to the weather. I returned the car to his wife, not too far from the airport, because he was unavailable, but wanted to make sure I caught my earlier flight! Awesome rental!
