Renting through Turo with Alpha was a breeze. He conveniently dropped the car off at the airport and worked around a delayed flight. He was quick to respond and was flexible on our drop off time. I’d highly recommend renting through Alpha when in Memphis.

Alpha was a wonderful host and very understanding. We had a weekend vacation pretty much and the car drove very smoothly and although it was a gas drinker, I was in-style and very comfortable. Next time tho, because of our trip, I’ll pick a car that goes further than 600miles.

Alpha was great and always quick to respond to communication. He made sure the car was there on time to pick us up from the airport and allowed us to extend the trip when we returned the car. The car itself was clean and smooth to drive and the AC was nice and cold which was definitely necessary for summer time in Tenesee. Would definitely rent the vehicle again.

EXCELLENT TRIP!!! The host Mini was Amazing from the beginning of the trip until the end. I loved the experience so much I ended up renting the car over a MONTH. The car itself was clean, smoke free, great look, it drives smooth and handles well. The thing I loved was being able to wash and clean the car for FREE as many times as needed through CarUSA carwash. I pull right up and the machine scans the windshield and I got a free wash plus vacuum. The car was a great gas saver in general and also being that it has the Eco feature if I needed to switch to it in order to save a little on gas. Back to the host Mini... He kept communication throughout the rental if I needed him and he assisted with any concerns or questions I may have had. I also received certain discounts the longer I kept the car. Can you believe only paying $1.53 for the ENTIRE day AFTER taxes, fees, and insurance was INCLUDED?? and that happened on several occasions. This experience was Wayyy better than renting from a traditional car rental company. I WILL be renting from Turo and Mini again. Wonderful experience

By far the best rental experience ever. It originally wasn’t available for the days I wanted so I reached out to Mario and he fixed it so it would be. He even met me at my work place, on time. Was very quick with responses and his car looked amazing and even drove better. I will def be renting from him again. 10 Stars!
