Ade is probably the best Turo host I've had. Pickup and drop-off was smooth and seamless, the car was awesome, and I greatly appreciate Ades flexibility and communication throughout the rental. Looking forward to renting again!

What a great guy, phenomenal car, and excellent experience! After the Impreza I booked wasn’t available (parts didn’t come in in time), Ade offered to swap in his Tesla Model S. Great communication throughout, a wonderful in depth walkthrough of the car, easy return—all around wonderful. Thank you Ade!

The perfect solution to a family logistics problem - a convenient, simple, local car rental that checked all the big company boxes (e.g., well-organized process, clean and reliable car). Definitely recommended!

I had an urgent need of a car as mine broke down and I had to get to work the next morning. I booked James' car and he was quick to respond. It was even better than picking up a rental car as there was no paper work, no hassles, no lines, no inflated charges. He was also flexible to let me extend the trip. His car drives really smooth and exactly as it is in the pictures. The music system is excellent, Bluetooth connection worked with my phone. You can't get anything better for the price.

Marcelo’s C-class is a lovely vehicle; drives like a dream, and is surprisingly good on gas mileage for such a powerful engine. Pickup was easy and sensible, location so close to Logan Airport is also a huge plus.

The car was great but what made this especially fantastic was Brett. He was reliable and very flexible and it was very easy renting his car. This was my third attempt to rent a car for my daughter's prom (The other 2 cancelled) Brett realized how important this was for me and even though he had to travel out of town he made sure I got the car and was all set. It was a pleasure dealing with him and the girls loved being tired around in his car for the night, it definitely gets a lot of attention!

Marcelo was amazing to rent from. I’m a new flight attendant who lives in Houston but is based in Boston. I had a really weird and extended stand-by schedule and it kept getting extended. I had to extend my trip day by day and Marcelo was patient enough with me to accommodate me! His cars are clean, easy to book, gas full, and run smooth! I have negative zero complaints about Marcelo or his cars!! I will be back to Boston shortly for duty and I will be renting from him again. Another plus, he has so many great cars to choose from!

I arrived at Boston Logan, walked about 200 feet after collecting my checked bag and there was Caroline and her car, ready for me to go. Caroline made it easy and convenient and completely worth it for my first Turo experience. Was much easier than renting from the rental companies. Caroline's Honda Fit ran well, and had great gas mileage. Perfect for my two week trip. And, I had the added convenience of Caroline's toll pass tag. Returning the car was almost as easy, if I hadn't got lost in the airport maze. But Caroline's knowledge of the airport and flexibility came through and the drop-off went off without a hitch. She was on-time and communicative for both pick-up and drop-off. Thank you Caroline! I'd definitely rent from her again.

Jacob didn’t have the car ready quite when we wanted it to be, but was happy to bring it to us a little later which was fine for our timing. Throughout he was very communicative and the car was completely functional for 400+ mile journey, although obviously had a lot of wear and something will probably break at some point. Very good deal for our trip all things considered. Thanks.

Before I note how great the car was, I should note that the Host made my first experience with TURO fantastic. Very flexible, and very kind, and great communication! The car is obviously fantastic, cant beat it. A true amazing machine to drive, and even though I only used it for a few hours it was a thrill to remember! What a great car, I highly, highly recommend.

They were amazing and I couldn’t have been left with a great first experience using Turo. I hope that I did everything correctly because I’d love the opportunity to use their vehicle again as I need in the future. Thanks for going out of your way to pick me up on my walk from the train station to your vehicle! Even so early in the morning. Car is great and great gas mileage. Flexible with the return time since I hoped to run some errands after work and they were able to accommodate the extra time required! :)

Benjamin was extremely helpful and flexible when it came to renting his vehicle to me. I had to extend several times during the trip and each time I was able to, no questions asked. Also during the trip, I needed to extend, while Benjamin had another booking for the car. He cancelled the other booking to accommodate me. I was truly appreciative! The car is great! Runs smooth, stylish, and has a cool factor to it. This has been a very pleasant experience. I look forward to renting from him again!

I rented Corey's Kia Soul for three trips (two 1-day trips and one 2-week trip), and was very impressed with how easy and professional the whole process was. It was my first time using Turo, so I didn't really know what to expect. Corey was very detailed in explaining the different procedures, super flexible with my numerous date/time changes, easy to communicate with, he gave me helpful tips (like where to park during a snow storm!), and was clear and friendly in his messages. His car was great -- comfortable, safe and clean -- just what I needed. Very glad I rented Corey's car, and would definitely do it again or recommend it.
