Couldn’t be more pleased with Al and his car!! He was great!! Don’t think I could ever go back to regular car rental!! I would highly recommend him to anyone and will most definitely be renting with him again when I’m in town!

Renting from Al was very smooth. The car was great and Al was very flexible with the pickup and drop-off. When I next find myself in Knoxville in need of a car, I’ll definitely rent from Al again.

Polaris Slingshot 2016
Brandon’s slingshot has been one of the most fun experiences I have had in TN in my 7 years of driving down from MI to visit my grandparents. Not only was the visit really fun from the driving experience and the amazing views I was able to get while in town. Brandon was a great first experience for me on Turo with his flexibility since I was picking it up in Knoxville, and I was in Crossville. Great trip Great experience, and definitely will tent again!!!

Polaris Slingshot 2016
This was my first time using Turo and Brandon has set the bar very high! Was very responsive and truly cared about our rental experience. He was also very flexible with us returning the Slingshot the night before. The Slingshot was GREAT to drive through the Smokey Mountains and down the famous 129 highway. Highly recommended!

It's easy to overlook necessities, especially with the excitement of visiting the Great Smoky Mountains, but Al made one less thing a non-worry. Al was punctual in dropping off and picking up the car right from the airport terminal, communicated proptly, and was very friendly. Highly recommend if you're in the Knoxville area. Until next time!

Caleb was an excellent host! He was always accessible, helpful, and insightful. The car was sleek and drove so smooth that it made our trip so much better. Whether you are in Knoxville for business, leisure, or a life-long resident that just wants a cool cruise this is the vehicle and host for you! We loved it so much we wish we could have had it longer! We will definitely be renting again in the future!

Daniel has been the absolute best renter I have EVER experienced! If you’re in need of a car in Knoxville, he should always be your go-to. If I could give more than five stars I definitely would.
Trevon C. - November 20, 2018
Polaris Slingshot 2016
Pick up was amazingly quick, driving this is a true neck breaker to all pedestrians walking, the transmission shifts like sweet butter, drop off was a little pickle of a situation but we worked it all out. He is a awesome person to rent from I will definitely be renting this again on my next trip in the near future.

Toyota Yaris 2012
AI was easy going and professional. Everything was fast and efficient. Toyota Yaris was without a problem. Would rent again. This was my first Turo experience, I love it. Its fast, reliable, prices are comparable to rental companies. As a foreign national I was having issues getting a car with my debit card, Turo lets you to pay even with Google pay. Using Turo was even faster than any other rental company. Trip changes are possible! one needs to be aware of possible additional charges (miles over daily limit, etc)

Al is a super nice guy, very reliable, flexible, and forgiving(I got a parking ticket, but we took care of it very easily). The car was in great condition, very clean, cheap to fill up, and had great features. I can't believe what a good deal I got. The free pick up and drop off made it incredibly easy for me, and the check in and check out process was very easy and quick. No hassles, no wasted time, no surprise charges. I would definitely recommend you rent from Al!
Alejandro Z. - August 1, 2018
