Car rental alternatives in Reno, NV

You can bet
on Reno

While the city is best known for the brassy neon signs alighting a handful of downtown casinos, Reno is truly much more than a gambling grotto. Since the opening of the nearby Tesla Gigafactory, the city has drawn a crowd of younger, hipper entrepreneurial types, who are filling Midtown with well-balanced cocktails and happening live shows.

Tucked into the Sierra Nevadas, just over the hill from Lake Tahoe, Reno is blessed with magnificent alpine and desert scenery that begs to be explored, so pop into your Reno airport car rental alternative to take in the sights, sounds, and majesty.

Reno favorites

While the classic casinos are still worth a gamble and gander, there’s plenty of other charming destinations in Reno.


This collection of funky boutiques, galleries, lounges, and restaurants along the Truckee River is the heart of downtown revival, and abounds with entertainment options every day.

National Automobile Museum

The Harrah Collection, as it’s also known, exhibits a number of rare and one-of-a-kind classic cars, including the 1949 Mercury Series 9CM driven by James Dean in Rebel Without A Cause.

Mount Rose

Hovering just above downtown, the local mountain is not only the quickest way to ride the slopes in the winter, it also boasts picturesque trails for hiking and mountain biking in warmer months.

This was my first experience renting a car through Turo. Nick and Casey were incredibly helpful. They make the car rental experience personal. Thanks guys.

My wife and I rented the 124 Spider from Nick for our honeymoon. It was the easiest rental transaction I’ve ever had. Him and his cohost Casey were easy to work with, the car was perfectly as advertised, and they were personable through the entire exchange. Wish all transactions were just like this. Grade A.

Skip the rental car counter

Hit the road

Book your Reno car rental alternative to wild out amongst the Sierras’ thick forests, striking mountains, and alluring bodies of water.

Lake Tahoe

The crystal clear waters of this glacial mountain lake are impossible to look away from. Take your Reno car rental alternative over Mount Rose to hike, paddle, or set up beachside.

Virginia City

The Old West is alive and well in this former silver mining town. Take the 40-minute trip in your Reno car rental alternative for an encounter with ghosts at the Silver Queen Hotel.

Sand Mountain Recreation Area

Drive your Reno car rental alternative to these massive dunes left behind by a dried up lake. It’s a popular place to motorbike or ATV, and when the wind blows just right, you’ll hear the sand sing.

Robert was extremely flexible, professional and hospitable during my entire interaction with him. His car drove extremely well and made my weekend the amazing experience it turned out to be. Would definitely recommend anyone looking to rent a car! There isn’t a 6th star unfortunately that Robert deserves.

Renting from Reno Tahoe Rental Car could have not been better for us. My husband and I rented the 124 Spider Fiat for our honeymoon for a week to drive around Lake Tahoe and we could not have chosen a better rental company. The car was clean and well taken care of and so fun and enjoyable to ride through the mountains and valleys of Lake Tahoe. Check- in (even though we were after hours) was so easy, personable and no hassle at all. The company provided a prepaid Lyft to pick us up and take us the the rental center. Check out was no hassle at all and we were given a free ride back to the airport (only 5 minutes away). Nick and Casey were fantastic, personable and happy to help us out any time we had questions before our trip and during our week stay at Lake Tahoe. When we return to the Reno/ Tahoe area we will definitely be renting from Reno Tahoe Rental Car again! Thanks Nick & Casey 😊

Nick and Casey were amazing to work with throughout my rental transaction including prompt responses and timely delivery and pick up of the vehicle. The car delivered was exactly as advertised and was in top notch shape. Overall, I had an excellent rental experience with them and highly recommend their rental services. I will definitely work with them again on my next trip to Reno!!

This was my second time renting Nick’s Subaru. Nick is very easy to deal with and makes picking up and returning the vehicle a breeze. The car was clean, low mileage and drives well. I highly recommend renting a vehicle from Nick and will be a regular customer of his when I need a car in the Reno/Tahoe area.

Adult trip to Tahoe without kids. A little bit of work, a whole lot of fun. Nicks Subaru was a perfect choice for our quick weekend away to Tahoe. It’s a beautiful, shiny new car that was very clean and ready to drive upon our arrival. Their location is across the street from the airport and was possible to walk to if we had less luggage. Thanks for a great Turo experience.

Terrific experience from booking through return. Nick and Casey are absolute professionals with a fleet of gorgeous cars that are perfectly suited to the Reno-Tahoe area. The A5 we rented had every desirable option, was in perfect condition, and drove flawlessly. I can’t recommend these guys more highly; you won’t be disappointed! My wife and I are already looking forward to our next trip to the area.

Can-Am Ryker 600 2019
Highly recommend renting from Nick. Communication and ease of pickup/return were top notch. Can Am Ryker is an awesome way to get from Reno to Tahoe and explore the lake — and it’s cheaper than an Uber...

Can-Am Spyder F3 Limited 2019
This was a breathtaking experience! A friend and myself both rented a Can-Am Spyder from Nick. Everything was flawless from start to finish. I will add here, they do provide helmets. If you have an especially large head, like I do, it may be tight, but they have them. Again, everything here was flawless, super easy, and great to deal with. Will definitely rent again when in Reno.

Marina was an amazing host. I loved driving her little car it worked out perfectly for me and it was very convenient she also was super attentive when responding to messages it’s like she doesn’t sleep. If you’re looking to rent a car I can highly recommend using her. Only had one or two problems which were not really her fault but she took care of them. I don’t know what else to say I just cannot say enough good things about her.

Kevin was very friendly and accommodating. The car went beyond expectations, aside from the great gas milage you get the fill up at the end of your trip will most likely be under $20 bucks. I will definitely be renting from.him again next time I Reno/Tahoe area.
Bruce R. - May 13, 2019

We have used this host a few times before. Very professional and courteous. On time and always available. Clearly the best option while in Reno.

Unbelievable experience! The Tesla was in perfect shape and a dream ride! Could not believe the low daily rate for this amazing car. Bob is such a nice guy and so helpful, friendly and responsive. He was right outside waiting for us as we walked out of the Reno airport and very acomodating and flexible as we were delayed returning the tesla to the airport.
David L. - August 12, 2019
Can-Am Spyder F3 Limited 2019
What a fantastic experience !!! Nick and Casey were top notch pleasant, punctual and available. My wife and I rented one of there Can-am Spyders and had a blast for the four days of touring around Lake Tahoe. We traveled from Denver Colorado for the long weekend. Airport pick up was a snap with pre-arrangement by Nick by Lyft. Excellent helmets were provided and instructions and safety review provided by Casey. Our journey up and around Lake Tahoe was memorable the Spyder really took it to another level. The machine worked flawlessly and is straightforward to operate. If you’re looking for s fun twist on transportation and in Reno give these guys a chance, they’ll get you all set with top notch transportation weather it’s s Can-am Spyder or one of their other top tier vehicles, I seriously doubt you’ll be disappointed. When back in Reno I’ll rent from Nick and Casey again. Extremely satisfied customer John F.

The car was perfect for our ski vacation. There was some pretty serious weather between Reno and Incline Village, but the car's AWD and snow tires handled it all smoothly. Nick was a great host: easy to communicate with, prompt, and the vehicle was exactly as advertised. I'll absolutely rent from him again.
Max R. - February 24, 2019

Great trip with Stephen’s P100D. We rented this car for a quick day trip and Stephen couldn’t have been easier to coordinate with. Our pickup and drop off times both shifted around due to flight delays and Stephen was very flexible in accommodating us and making sure OUR trip was as smooth as possible. Faster and easier than renting from a rental car company. Stephen also took the time to give us a quick 5 minute overview on how to operate this engineering masterpiece. It’s the best car on the road, period.

Derek is the consummate Turo host. He tells you everything you need to know before you need to know it. His car—the Pearl—is immaculate and nice-looking...and also the best value Turo car in Reno. I will use it every time I visit.

He was a great communicator with detailed instructions. Very pleased with our Turo rental!

Nick is a true car guy, very accommodating and has an acute sense of customer relationships. Look no further than nick and his company in the reno tahoe area. All his cars are exceptionally clean he has a large fleet of cars and has something for everyone, Nick even facilitated a pickup at 1 am in the morning and drop off at 5am both of which were at a short notice which just speaks volumes of his commitment to running his business.

He’s excellent at communication and was flexible with my late arriving flight. I’d love to rent from Kevin again.

Nick and Casey were great! Super simple process and all aimed at getting you on the road and enjoying your rental! I rented the Fiat Spider 124 Abarth, VERY fun car! I definitely recommend it for the gearhead enthusiasts out there, the Abarth has the same drivetrain as thr Fiat, but Abarth beefs up the suspension and has a limited slip diff. AMAZING in the corners, you’ll have an absolute blast, definitely recommended!

Best Reno driving roads

Big Smoky Valley Scenic Route
