We had a few "on the spot" questions and we were grateful for Dustin's quick responses. Great communication, convenient pick-up and return at the airport made for a great experience. Highly recommended. Thanks, Dustin!

Dustin was awesome when our flight got cancelled and was able to work out to have the car an extra day. He is quick to respond! The car was good on gas to get around.

On a family vacation with adults and needed a car with space for all and a wheelchair. Worked well for us. Harvey is very accommodating and communicative. So much better and less expensive than waiting in line at the airport rental counter.

My first Turo car rental experience and it was great! Just needed a reliable car with working air conditioner and this older Camry delivered. Smaller than newer models (limited head room) but I expected that. Arnold was prompt and gave clear instructions on how to drop car at airport.

James maintained excellent communication before, during and after the rental process. He even included a set of charger and aux cords with the rental which was a really nice addition since I forgot mine. Highly recommend!

First time Turo user, we were visiting for a family wedding. What a great car to drive around this beautiful city. James was great. He communicated everything I would need prior to pickup and dropoff. The airport pickup could not have been easier...walk out the door and there is your car waiting for you in a parking spot. No shuttles, no rental counters, just awesome! Thanks again!

Really enjoyed my trip to Seabrook, Reinaldo was real friendly and made the process simple and hassle free, the car was clean. A bargain really, with 485hp and the 750 free miles is generous. Looking forward to my next trip to SC

James’s Mustang is a must-have if you are planning a trip on the SC coast. The car is in impeccable condition and a real head-turner. The pickup/drop-off process could not have been easier. Worth every penny!

James was so easy to work with. He made pickup and return very easy, provided clear and precise instructions, and the car was reliable and clean. We appreciated the basket of little extras (cords and things so we could use our iPhones for music and directions). This was our first time using Turo and we will definitely try it again based on our experience with James. So much nicer than waiting in line for a rental car!

What a great car to compliment our trip. James did a great job communicating where the car was and the details on how to return. The car wash suggestion was perfect as it was right near the airport. Watch the line though. It can be long on the weekend. I would definitely rent from James again.

Jeanette met us at the airport when we arrived which made things super easy, we literally walked out to the curb put our bags in the car and went on our way! She did the same when we returned. Would definitely use Turo and Jeanette again!

Mazda MAZDA2 2013
I was so relieved to find this zippy green fuel efficient car last minute for my road trip from Charleston, SC to Jacksonville, FL. I even named the car the GREEN BEE after my little brother’s blanket that he still has now 40 years later so it was fitting that we were celebrating his 40th birthday. James was there from pick up to drop off to answer any questions about the car and logistics of renting a car from Turo vs. a rental car company. The car arrived clean with extra touches such as a basket of car charging accessories which I had totally forgot to pack. James was super responsive to messages and forgiving of all the beach sand and leaves we left behind. However, Turo is not like a rental car company in that you do need to return the car clean. I will definitely use Turo again for my next trip!
Krista F. - March 1, 2019
Terry
Chrysler Sebring 2008
James was great to work with, He provided all of the details - the car was waiting in short term parking. (Much better than waiting for rental car) The price was terrific for a convertible going to Hilton Head beach resort. The car was clean and great to drive. It was convenient to drive back to the airport and drop it off at the short term parking. Could not have asked for a better experience.

This was my first trip using Turo. Michael is excellent he was able to accommodate getting the car to the airport at 1am in the morning when all the rental cars were closed. He was quick to respond to any of my questions and even went out of his way to assist me. I'd give him 10 stars if I could. I recommend renting from Michael if I'm in southern California again he is the first person I will reach out to.

I don’t think this trip could have gone any better. We travel to charleston often and this was the most seamless trip with regards to car rental. Jason’s car was perfect for our trip, but the highlight was his communication and flexibility. 10/10 would recommend to anyone.

There was a mechanical problem with the car which was not known until the rental was in progress. The owner quickly offered to take the car back and help in any way possible. Turo refunded our money and we rented another vehicle. Everyone involved reacted quickly and professionally.

This was our first time using Turo and Nic made the experience so easy and great! The convenience of the pick up and drop off was fantastic and the car was way better than something from the other big rental companies. Would HIGHLY recommend booking with Nic for any trips to the Charleston, SC area!

Sara
Chrysler Sebring 2008
We really enjoyed using the Sebring! We rode with the top down about half the time. The pickup/drop-off in the CHS airport parking deck was super convenient for us. James was very flexible and communicative during our trip. We paid an extra 25 through the app to extend our trip at the last minute when we had our flight delayed for hours, which was a lot better than sitting in the airport! Thanks, James!

Michael went above and beyond! He communicated well and in a timely manner. Unfortunately, we missed our flight to Charleston following an accident on our commute. Michael was very understanding of the delay and not only had the car ready for us when we arrived 4 hours later, but he was also flexible in allowing us to use the car for the full 24 hours we had already paid for at his suggestion. He briefly checked in with us at the beginning and end of our rental to ensure things went smoothly. If you’re hesitant about Turo I highly recommend Michael for an incredible experience, you won’t regret it!
