Honda Civic 2018
Brian was a great host! His car was perfect for our trip to Ohio for my son’s football training. His car was clean and fuel efficient. It was much nicer than most rental cars I’ve gotten in the past from large rental companies and a lot faster rental process. He tracked my flight and met me within 5 minutes after getting my bags. He was even flexible with the return. It was my first time using Turo and he helped walk me through what I needed to do. I was very hesitant and nervous going in since I’ve never used Turo before, but the whole process was very seamless and turned out to be a fantastic experience and way better than any rental company I’ve dealt with in the past.

Kev is an incredible host. Very responsive, polite and considerate. Tesla can’t pay him enough for renting his cars on Turo. Will go back and rent from him again.

Billy is incredibly kind, down to earth, and attentive. This was my first time using Turo and I was slightly apprehensive about it, as I didn’t know what to expect, but now, I plan to convince Billy to rent me his car every time I come to Ohio to see my family. Couldn’t have been happier with the experience. Very seamless. If you’re hesitating to book, don’t. It’s sooo much better than any car rental experience you’ll ever have. Did I mention that I paid $29 for gas for 8 days? Prius for life.

Fun trip. Luke has a great car and is easy to do business with. Luke takes time to go over the vehicle and explain its features.
Mike V. - October 6, 2019
Lexus CT 200h 2011
WOW! What a great, seamless experience. From the time I got off the plane, to getting in the car was less than 30 minutes. Even faster returning the car. Austin has this down to a very user friendly experience. The car exceeded my expectations. It was in " like new" condition and spotless. A great car for city driving. Easy to drive and park. I'll never rent a car again from the rental agency's. Austin was always quick to respond to me....within minutes. When I'm back in Cleveland, I'll definitely book this car again. Thanks Austin.

Christian was super accommodating when the car I chose wasn’t available. He was in constant communication to let me know where he was and what was going on to make sure I had a car for the needed amount of rental time. He has a good variety of cars to choose from at affordable rates. I will definitely work with him again when I visit Cleveland.

Another great Turo experience--the car was great, Dennis was great to communicate with, pickup and dropoff were a cinch, and didn't have to deal with the rental car company headaches. We will do business with Dennis again when we are in Cleveland.

Toyota Yaris iA 2018
Got a call within 30 seconds of me placing my order to answer all questions I had. Darius picked me up and took me to my rental as well as drove me back to my house when I dropped it off. Really kind and courteous and went above and beyond to guarantee my trip was as stress free as possible. Can not recommend enough.
Bradley G. - July 30, 2019

Outstanding!!! John was super professional with the entire rental process, plus, he is incredibly kind and flexible. He made my first Turo trip a cool and easy experience. In fact, with the door to door pickup and drop off service, I look forward to using John/Turo for future rentals. Now about his gorgeous car with the incredible ride ... loved it!! I’m a bit of a luxury car aficionado, and find it rare to experience the drive I like in a rental without spending a fortune. This beautiful midnight blue BMW actually solves that problem ... looks great, hugs the road, and has lots of toys. The only issue I had was making sure that I stayed within the speed limit!! Thanks a million, John!!

Billy and his vehicle were great. Perfect car for our short trip to the Cleveland area. I HIGHLY recommend using Billy for your car needs. Can’t say enough good things about him. If I could give 6 stars I would.

Jesse was amazing ! It was really easy communicating with him and he was really patient with me after waiting an extra 30 minutes for me to bring back the car... I visit Cleveland a lot so I will definitely be renting from Jesse more often.
Janay W. - January 6, 2019

Simply outstanding experience with John and his BMW. We had a bunch of flight trouble and John was incredibly accommodating during pick up and even willing to meet us at the airport at 4:00 A.M. for our ridiculously early departure flight. Car was enormously fun to drive, clean, and well equipped. Can't recommend John and his BMW highly enough. Forget rental companies, this is the way to go!!!!

Easy hand off pickup and drop-off. Did the job for the price. Owner responded promptly. Liked that he met us at the airport. Just a few minor issues with the car alarm since we didn’t have the key-fob and the lights being super dim (had to drive with high beams most of the time).
Daniel S. - August 26, 2019

Dodge Charger 2017
You have to rent this car! The car was fantastic! It had 5100 miles on it when I picked it up and I put 560 miles on it over 3 days. The car still has that 'new car' smell and it of course runs great. It's really in mint condition. The car has lots of great options such as the heated/cooled seats, heated steering wheel, upgraded 19 speaker Harmon kardon audio system (probably the best factory audio system), etc. Did I mention that it comes with the red key? Joey was also very professional. Thanks again for a great weekend!
Corey C. - July 9, 2018
Audi A4 2008
Austin’s Audi was the perfect rental! The pickup/drop off was very easy. The car runs great. It was a lot of fun to zip around in a cute little Audi! Austin was very easy to get in touch with. My flight was delayed and he had no problem with starting the rental an hour later. I would definitely suggest renting from him.
Stephen H. - July 24, 2018

Nissan Sentra 2011
I was very appreciative of the condition of the car. Especially the condition of the tires, wipers and the rain-x on the windshield as there was a fair amount of rain during our visit. Pickup and drop off was convenient and being that I was traveling with two kids and two car seats this was a big deal. The car was clean and Joe was very friendly, even helping me to load my bags. I would absolutely rent from him again.
Melinda P. - August 24, 2018

First of all, Luke is an incredible guy. He was kind and courteous through the whole process and was more than accommodating with anything I needed. As for the Model 3, wow! It's really just awe inspiring if you've never driven one. This is a must. Truly the car of the future. I look forward to doing the trip again next year, and I'll definitely be dealing with Luke again. If you have any hesitations about Turo, there's no need. The whole process was great.
