Jaren was easy to work with and communication was there when needed. Our flight was delayed and we needed to extend our trip an hour at the last minute and he approved instantly. Easy drop off and pick up instructions from Punta Gorda airport.

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!

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.

This was the easiest quickest way to rent a car that I have ever seen. The car was clean and gassed up. Great experience. Thanks Vidas!

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.

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!
John M. - August 5, 2019

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.

We loved using this car! He made pickup so simple by leaving the car in short term parking for us. Then return was even easier as we were able to conveniently just leave it for him. The car was clean, ran great, and we loved the excellent gas mileage. He was also super responsive to messages and sent nice and detailed information.

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!!!

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.

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.

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!

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!!!!

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.
