First time using Turo and Island Rides was great to work with. Car had a tiny back seat, so 3 was a tight fit, but it was fun to drive.

This was our first Turo experience and we are 100% hooked! Filip made everything so easy! The car was amazing, he was friendly and helpful, and the whole process was way more efficient than any rental agency we’ve ever used! Filip is a great host and we will seek him out in the future!!

The car we rented from Steve was excellent. It was clean, had power, sunroof and was economical on gas. But the two best features were the super navigation system and the wifi. It meant we Canadians didn’t need to get a cell plan while down here. Simply used the car wifi when we wanted to google or use iMessage while on the road or at the beach. It Was awesome! Steve was great to communicate with. He answered in a timely fashion and was to the point. Steve dropped the car off at the airport for us so we were ready to go. Car was clean and in excellent shape. Hugely recommend his services. Thanks Steve.

Wish I would have know about turo before. Renting from some of the national company' Has been crazy. This was a piece of cake. Can not say enough of how easy the rental was. Thanks

This was our first time using Turo and David was awesome! He met us at the airport both at pickup and drop off which was much smoother than any rental car agency. And the Ford C-Max was fun and so economical. We drove all week and only had to get gas on our way to the airport to drop it off. David stayed in touch with us and was friendly and knowledgeable. Overall, it was a great trip. Can’t wait to go back and rent his convertible!

Jaren and Island Rentals were amazing!! The car was awesome and Jaren’s communication and flexibility with some unexpected changes in my plans were a huge bonus. The self check-in and check-out option was also really easy and convenient. It doesn’t hurt that the Ft. Myers airport is a really great place to fly in and out of. I highly recommend Island Rentals!

Ford Crown Victoria 2007
Stumbled onto Turo when dealing with exorbitant car rental prices for Punta Gorda Airport. I was not familiar with this service and a bit hesitant to utilize it until I read Vidas's reviews. His Crown Victoria fit my needs so I gave it a shot. Everything he explained to me and delivered was true. He responded immediately each time I reached out to him. He said it would be easy and seamless and he was true to his word. So much easier than renting a car from the usual suspects. Much better service. I really can't say enough as to how enjoyable Vidas resolved our transportation needs as well as my intro to Turo. I would certainly utilize Vidas's services again. And Turo's as well. But in my opinion Vidas has set the bar for what a Turo rental operator should offer and be. Vidas deserves ten stars!
Edwin S. - June 6, 2019

This was my first Turo experience and it couldn’t have been better! Vidas was fast to respond to any questions I had while preparing for my trip and then during the time of my rental, via text or the app. The vehicle he provided was well kept and hassle free. I was excited when booking this rental to know we’d have a resident beach pass for the Sanibel Island beaches... I now can’t imagine my trip without that access. It was a MAJOR BONUS!! Thank you Vidas for being an exceptional host. I hope to find you again in the future!

Easier to rent from Turo than a rental company. Great car that was well maintained and fun to drive with no hassles. The owner made it super easy for pickup and left me money in the cup holder to pay the short term parking fee. They get a Gold Star!!!
Dave L. - December 15, 2018

Rented Vidas' Jetta while in Florida Dec 14-19. Super convenient pick up of vehicle at the start of the trip and drop off at the end. Much better than renting through corporate rental company. Vidas was available and easy to communicate with leading up to and during the trip.
Jordan V. - December 20, 2018

Vida was an excellent host! The vehicle was great and he was super accommodating even when we had to make last minute changes. Drop off and pick up was easier than going to a rental car company, no joke! Oh and the value was far superior. We will definitely be in contact with Vida on our next visit!

I greatly enjoyed my rental of Inspiro's 2011 Toyota Prius. The car was immaculate and in good working order, and was easy to drive. I used it to attend a series of cycling events in Florida. I highly recommend John's Inspiro Auto's service to others.

We had an excellent experience with vidas and his Ford Crown Victoria. The car was spacious and just as described. It was waiting for us more steps from the exit of the PGD airport, front row in the parking lot. Loved the convenience of the beach parking pass. Vidas was great in staying in communication and explaining the pickup/return process as this was my first time using Turo. Next time I travel to the area I will definitely utilize a vehicle of Vidas' and reccomend hom to anyone looking for smooth experience.

I have not been excited about the rental process, as well as their “surge pricing.” I saw a banner ad for Turo and decided to take a leap of faith and try it out. The app is awesome and the Upshift Team I had the pleasure to work with, quickly put my concerns aside. Instant responses to my questions, and a streamlined process, along with their positivity made a believer out of me. I loved the Mini Cooper, along with the setup. I will absolutely welcome the opportunity to work with them again, and endorse their using this unsolicited testimonial on any social media platform of their choosing. They exceeded my expectations!!!!
Mark W. - December 30, 2018

Absolutely everything about our first rental with Turo was awesome. David was basically just a wonderful human. From the moment we rented he started communicating. His responses were thorough and quick. He truly went out of his way to make sure everything about our trip was exactly as we expected. I had no questions about what David expected from me either. He made tolls easy. He made fueling up easy. His car was spotless when we took receipt of it. I felt bad about returning it with some sand- because we were at the beach everyday. David kindly assured me that it was exactly as expected knowing we would be at the beach. He was a super easy going guy. Someone I would have loved to have a beer with! (Maybe next time!) I will definitely rent from David again. Thanks for everything.
Kayleen C. - July 9, 2019

Vidas made this so easy and convenient. The car was waiting for us in the parking lot when we arrived, and the handoff was quick and easy. Car was clean, full of gas, and drove just fine. Vidas answered all questions before, during, and after very quickly. Here is the best part. We left a photo behind in the car of our 3-year-old Grandson feeding a giraffe at the Naples Zoo. Vidas contacted us before we noticed we forgot it. I offered to pay for the postage for him to send it to us in Iowa, but he insisted it was no big deal and would pay for it out of his pocket. If this had been a rental car place, they would not have reached out to us, and we would never have gotten our picture back. It was nice to do business with a man of integrity. Thanks again Vidas and we look forward to doing business with you again on our next trip to Cape Coral.

David was an amazingly gracious host and went above and beyond to ensure that our trip went without a hitch. When our flight was delayed due to weather, David was flexible and patient and ensured we had no problem meeting up with him at the airport. The car was immaculate and got great gas mileage, couldn't have asked for a better trip!
Madeline W. - August 7, 2018

Vidas is a very clear communicator. He left the car at the airport in an easy to find location and gave us accurate directions via text. All pre-existing dings and scratches were accurately disclosed beforehand.

Car was what we needed; plenty of trunk capacity for suitcases and backseat passenger room. Gas mileage (17 mpg) also what was expected considering size and type of vehicle. Didn't put that many miles on it, anyway. Missed not having a fob to unlock doors and cruise control. Price was right for us. Vidas was great to work with; very convenient pick-up and drop-off at airport. Too bad sirens weren't operational; could have had a lot fun!!

First time on Turo. We aren’t huge travelers and really weren’t wanting to rent a car, but needed to on this vacation because we flew down to Florida. Vidas was amazing. Everything thing he said he fulfilled. He had great communication the whole trip too. And there was actually damage to the bumper that we didn’t notice happened and he was great to work with to get it taken care of. We feel horrible about the damage that happened when we had the car but he was honest and fair with us. And we would recommend him to anyone needing a car in the area. He made the pickup and drop off a breeze.
