Evergreen fun
in Seattle

Seattle is fertile ground for bringing big ideas to life, from grunge rock to Starbucks and Amazon. It’s filled with vivacity and creativity, and there’s no shortage of ways to get to know the celebrated quirks of the city.

Maybe you’ve heard it rains in Seattle? That also makes Seattle an emerald green oasis, and when you skip town in your Seattle car rental alternative, your outdoor adventure is sure to wow.

Seattle Favorites

It’s easy to find your own niche in Seattle, and whether you come for the incredible food, the amazing music scene, or just because you look good in a raincoat, make sure to hit these local favorites.

Space Needle

It doesn’t get more classic than the Space Needle, and even if you aren’t a “Sleepless in Seattle” fan, there’s an undeniable romance to being 600 feet up in the air, admiring the view of the city and beyond.

Chihuly Garden and Glass

These eight galleries, garden, and the iconic Glasshouse feature the work of inventive Tacoma-based glass artist Dale Chihuly. See his whimsical work and learn how he came to define glass art.

Ballard Locks

The rushing water in this complex system of locks helps move boats into the Puget Sound — it’s unexpectedly thrilling to watch, but the fish ladders that get salmon to their spawning ground are equally fascinating.

Scion iQ 2012
This was my first time renting with Turo, and I couldn’t have asked for a better experience. C.Y. was detail oriented when orienting me with his vehicle, and patient when I ran a few minutes late. His car is clean, well maintained, and perfect for driving through downtown Seattle and the surrounding ‘burbs.

I rented the Scion XB from Amy for my one day stay in Seattle. The pick up and drop off were very convenient at the airport, and the car was great and extremely clean. Thank you, Amy for a great experience!

First time being a guest on Turo and I had an amazing experience with C.Y. He was great when it comes to communication and made sure I am taken care of as far as my flight and pick up/drop off was concerned. The car!! This little Scion IQ. I can’t believe how awesome of a car it is for Seattle. It literally will fit anywhere, gets great mpg and C.Y keeps it maintained. Zero issues. Will definitely rent again from him. Thanks again!

This little was SO helpful on my trip. I was able to go hiking outside or Seattle and this little thing handled the highways with ease. Great gas mileage and excellent for parking in downtown which was more often than not packed. Would definitely rent again.

It was a great car to take around Seattle. When our flight got cancelled minutes before drop off and moved from 10 AM to 10 PM Kyler was extremely understanding it was easy to just extend for the day.

Scion iA 2016
If you are visiting the Seattle/Tacoma area and if you know how to drive a manual transmission, then you must book your reservation with Kyler. He is very laid-back and also extremely professional. He is an overall excellent communicator and was extremely helpful throughout the entire process. This was my first time using Turo and I honestly do not see how anyone can top the high quality service that Kyler provided!

Kyler was an AMAZING host. Not only was the car clean and in amazing shape, but he even dropped us off at chick file after turning the car in. If I could give him more than 5-stars I would. Thanks for letting us use your car!🤙

The car we rented was great and so was C.Y. We enjoyed renting a car from him. And will definitely do it again if we are ever in the area

Scion iQ 2012
Elizabeth's little iQ was great, and was all we needed for our week in the PNW. Elizabeth brought the car to us at Sea-Tac to start our trip, and met us there at the end -- so easy. The little Scion itself handled surprisingly well; I would sometimes forget that it was so small until I turned around and realized that there was almost no more car left. Parallel parking was a Puget Sound breeze, seeing as the car is about as wide as it is long (this turned out to be a lifesaver several times over). It was comfortable enough for a road trip to Portland for two people, and a ferry jaunt with three. Gas mileage was excellent as well: over 35 mpg, on average. Only things I wished I could have changed would have been to have had cruise control. And maybe that the tires/road noise were a bit loud at highway speed, though certainly not intolerably so. (Then again, the car is mostly windows so not sure how to get around that, ha!) Overall, my girlfriend and I were extremely pleased to have chosen Turo and Elizabeth's car for our trip.

Scion iQ 2012
The Babybot was the perfect car for our trip! It easily fit our two pieces of (checked size) luggage, got great mileage (upper 30s MPG), fit in some tiny parking spots and ferries, looked great, kept us entertained (it's a tiny car, fun!) and started quite a few conversations with strangers on the street. Elizabeth was very easy to rent from and is highly recommended for a nice and easy rental! Picked up and dropped off at Seatac, so very easy!

Super clean car. Drove well. We had a miscommunication at the airport, but Amy rushed over right away to take care of it. Would rent from her again!

A patient renter with me as a first-timer. The car itself was super fun, turns on a dime.

Everything went smoothly. After dropping off the car we had to get back to the city. Brian's house was just a couple blocks from the light rail that took us right into Seattle.
Russell W. - August 27, 2018
Scion iQ 2012
My friend and I had a great road trip in the Scion iQ! It is a perfect size - small enough to fit almost anywhere with plenty of space for bags and comfort. C.Y. was a wonderful host and accommodated my last-minute request when my other booking was cancelled. I will definitely book with him again.
Andrea S. - March 28, 2019

Great car for visiting a city! Parking becomes way more available when you can fit into smaller spaces. C.Y. was flexible with pickup time which was very helpful to me.
