Sanibel Beach Parking Permit on the car- so you can save big parking at famous Sanibel beaches all day long for free! Yes, resemblance to Porsche is not accidental as VW Beetle is definitely a Great Great Grandma to all 911s :) This legendary automobile- which is no longer being produced as of this year- is a nice, sharp and fun car to drive, especially on vacation, plus it has Sanibel Beach Permits A, so you can park at a beach all day long and pay nothing :) Seats 4, looks nice, and what a fabulous drive -why would you need anything else here?

Very easy pick up & drop off. Communication was great and quick. The Bug was clean & got great gas mileage!

This was a HORRIBLE, HORRIBLE experience!!!Some minor problems but main PROBLEM was @1 AM I couldn’t get the car to turn off and couldn’t get the key out for near 2 hours! Text/called Vidas. No response. Next day he complained that I woke him up several times - so he ignored my need for help.! Turo was sympathetic but couldn’t help. Internet -> it’s a common problem with Volkswagen. Past 2:00 AM, had to go up to strangers @ Denny’s leaving the car running and open for fear of being locked out! First person who also was a Volkswagen owner also couldn’t get the car to turn off - it wasn’t me! Finally a third person was able to get the key out but he said something was wrong with it. I lost a total of two hours sleep dealing with this and it got worse the next day! He texted me at 5:30am waking me up telling me that these cars have that problem . . . HE KNEW THAT THE CAR HAD THIS ISSUE AND HE STILL RENTED IT! Later the best that Vidas was willing to do was switch out the car for much higher price and I still needed to bring it back to the airport! He complained that it cost him money to park the car and because my plane was late it cost extra. My plane was half an hour late. As soon as I knew it was going to be late, which was hours before I was to arrive, I immediately tried to contact him but he had already parked the car. He also complained that it cost him money to have somebody deliver the car. It was all about how he was put out!! I returned his car and rented from Dollar. Leaving out a LOT of the details. I lost sleep and at least a total of six hours of time. He ruined my weekend which wasn’t cheap and I was responsible for photographing someone’s wedding - lost time/stress/aggravation = me being rushed and exhausted. It was difficult to focus and I couldn’t at my best. I had never rented from Turo B4. I answered Vidas’ Text outside of the app because he was content contacting me outside of the app. He knew better but it is safer for him to keep problems from being documented. I Chose Vidas because he has a good rating. Maybe he’s OK if the car doesn’t have a problem but if it does don’t expect any help from him! I recommend that you don’t do business with him and if you choose to use Turo make sure you only communicate within the app!
