Berlin city made car rental super easy for our trip. Easy pick up and drop off. The car was exactly as described. I will use them again in the future. Very good experience.

Everything about our Truro experience makes us want to book through them again. Our car was clean, operating perfectly throughout our eleven day trip, and dealing with the company was easy and clear.

Jeffrey was great. l Way better than your traditional car rental. Would do it again. He picked us up at airport and brought us to the car and we were on our way. Clean car and got us everywhere we needed to. When the trip was done he met us where we picked up the car and offered us a ride back to the airport again.

Renting from Andrei is easy, convenient and economical. I will never go back to a conventional car rental company as long as I can rent from Andrei instead. He has multiple cars on Turo available both in Portland and Boston but I used his services in Portland. He’s clearly passionate about about what he does and that translates with every interaction. My husband and I got immediate responses from him via the Turo app and his remote pick up / drop off process made it very easy for us to pick up the car a bit later than planned and to drop it off earlier that expected. So nice to work with a real person who knows what they are doing rather than a customer service that that might not care as much. Thank you Andrei for a phenomenal experience we will definitely come back!

This was our first time using Turo and it was a great experience. Upon pick up, there was quite a bit of disorganization on our end and Merle made it all work out. The car was clean and fun to drive. We'd love to rent it again if we're ever in Maine in the future.

Excellent! Jeffrey was top notch from beginning to end on this trip. Truly a local guide and a great host. I’ve rented a few times on Turo and Jeffrey far exceeds anything I’ve experienced so far. You can count on him to deliver great communication, local tips and knowledge, and of course — great, well-maintained cars! 5 stars all the way.

This was my first experience using the Turo app and Berlin City Nissan. But this review is going to be more for BCN. Alex was my contact person. He was on time, professional and extremely kind. Pick up and drop off was an ease. He was flexible with timing considering I was at the Portland JetPort. What really was above and beyond was that after returning the (by the way BEAUTIFUL new 2019 Altima) we realize my daughter had slipped her passport into the backseat pocket. I contacted Alex to check if it was there. It was and he drove it back to me so fast so I would not miss my flight or have to leave it behind. It’s associates like Alex that can leave a great impression on the consumer and HE DID! I was beyond grateful to him. He already had earned a raving review from me, but this was the ultimate cherry on top. In my opinion Alex should be recognized! He provided the most amazing customer service and all with the best attitude. I would have checked 10 stars if they were available. Sincerely, Keresa Doss

Jeffrey was my first Turo host and was great. Communication was easy and Jeffrey is quick to respond. He picked us up in our neighborhood and brought us to the car, and it was an easy check-in from there. Jeffrey was really helpful in answering my newbie questions. The car is very clean, comfortable and easy to drive. When the trip was done he met us where we picked up the car and offered us a ride back to where we wanted to go. I would definitely rent with him again!

I really enjoyed Paisible’s 2007 Nissan Altima. It drives well, it handles well, it gets very decent gas mileage, and it’s got a great stereo and a sunroof. What’s not to like? I appreciated touches like the presence of an aux cable and USB adapter in the 12v outlet, so you can keep your phone charged and the tunes cranking on the drive. It is a 12-year-old car with a few quirks, like an exhaust note that I rather liked, and no, it wasn’t spotless when I got it (though a good dousing from a summer rainstorm cleaned it up just fine 😉), but the tires are good, and the car drove very well and felt perfectly safe at all times. Some renters may need a newer car but then will have to pay a higher rate. Paisible’s Altima is an excellent choice for those who want to save some money and will be happy with a solid older Japanese car that runs great, is roomy and is enjoyable to drive.

I can’t say enough good things. The car was beautiful. I literally got compliments on it. It also drove wonderfully, and had a great SATNAV, which I preferred even to my phone. Very comfortable and sporty. Very fuel efficient. Immaculate upon pickup. Luis is a very detail oriented renter. I could tell the car had been cleaned and really taken care of. Even the rims were clean and the tires were shined. I had some problems with my flight back and luis was amazingly accommodating and friendly. He also was easy to get a hold of. Very efficient in his communication. I can’t say enough great things about my experience with Luis and this Fusion. Will definitely try to rent again if i find myself back in Portland (which I probably will).

What an amazing experience! Luis was SO helpful. This was our first time using Turo and anytime I had a question, he very quickly responded. The car was clean and perfect for our trip. Having him meet us at the curb was so convenient! Much easier than trying to wait at a rental car desk for sure! We asked to drop our car off a few hours early, and Luis was incredibly flexible and helpful!

Best customer service! I originally tried renting with a different host and my trip was cancelled less than 24 hours before I was intending to leave. Within an hour I had my next trip booked with Jeffrey. He was quick to respond, informative, and he really took the time to make my trip as smooth as possible. Not only was the car new and spotless, but Jeffrey’s service was amazing! I could tell he really cares about his customers. He saved my trip! I will definitely rent from Jeffrey again and I’m excited for it! Thanks for everything!

We loved renting from the Berlin City Nissan dealership. They are just so professional in every single way. Also, the car was awesome. We could plug our phones in, and our phones showed up on the dashboard screen (using CarPlay). We could then use our phones as our GPS, play our podcasts and music, etc. Perfect, esp for long car rides!

Andrei is the 5 Star Turo Guy! His car was nice and clean, got great gas mileage, has free car wash service with this vehicle, has an automated system for return of car. In addition, my trip was unexpectedly extended and Andrei went way beyond the call of duty to bump another reservation into a different car so that I could extend. WOW.

Local Portland favorites

Famous for its rain, its tree, and its microbrews, Portland is a gastronomical journey for the senses. Book a car, go explore, and treat yourself.

  • Go food carting (& doughnutting)

  • Portland is mad about food carts. They’re clustered all around the city in "pods" — just Google around and find the one that suits your appetite. Also, go to Voodoo Doughnuts. Trust us.

  • Imbibe

  • Renowned for its craft brews and juicy Pinots, the Portland area is rich with drinking options. McMenamins has unique brew pubs around town, but never drink and drive your car.

  • Float some rivers

  • Rivers abound in and around Portland — the Sandy, the Clackamas, the Willamette — grab a car and an inner tube, turn off your mind, relax, and float downstream.
