The car is neat and clean runs well and is very spacious. Carla is very responsive and answers all queries on time. Over all it was a great experience and I was very happy with my choice by picking up Turo instead of Airport Rental Cars. I will surely use Turo when I travel again.

Robert was timely and communicative, and since it was an electric car rental, he was thorough with instructions on how the vehicle performs and how to use charging to its potential. He is the type of Turo car owner that you want to rent from. Conveniently located near Washington Dulles airport, too.

Greetings, My name is Rohan and if your looking to rent a car from someone this is the guy. Charles was very easy going and easy to talk to. He is willing to go the extra to help make your rental experience as convenient as possible. During my encounter with Charles, he was easily reachable and the car (OHH THE CAR) was clean and mean. I really enjoyed my Turo rental and look forward to my next rental experience. Check him out!!!

James’ car was perfect, my friends and I rented just for one day, since we were leaving the next day to another state. We used it just to explore around the city, and it made it really easy. Another good thing is that the car is really cheap to fill it up. The communication was also good, and he was really nice. I highly recommend it. I will sure rent with him again if go back to the city.

Renting with Charles was great! I had originally booked his Prius but that became unavailable due to a tire issue the day of my trip. Charles went the extra mile to get me another car and facilitated a pick-up/drop-off.

Syed was an excellent host! He met me at the airport and I experienced the smoothest and fastest rental car handoff of my life. The car got great gas mileage and came with an EZ pass for tolls. Couldn't have asked for anything better, and I would certainly rent from Syed again.

Renting Bart's Miata was a pleasure. Pickup and dropoff at his house were a breeze, and he was a pleasure to deal with throughout - as friendly and responsive as anybody could ever hope for. The car itself was wonderful, fun to drive and lovely to cruise in with the top down.

Nurith
Nissan Sentra 2007
I've rented from Mariano before and have always found him to be incredibly responsive, flexible, friendly and professional. Those qualities were especially important on this occasion, when, literally minutes before reaching at his place to return the car I got a flat tire. Mariano quickly mobilized to come to where the car was and replaced the tire himself. He is without question my top go-to for Turo rentals.

Pranav always answered when I called or messaged. His car was immaculate and had a full tank. On the way back from my trip I ran into some heavy traffic. Pranav was understanding and flexible. We will definitely rent from him again.

Hiram
Hyundai Elantra 2011
We flew in on Christmas Eve. Our flight was delayed twice and Nexuz was super flexible and nice about it! The car was clean and smelled good on the inside. The amount of miles he offered for the amount of time we were here was fabulous! We were able to drive from DCA up to Pennsylvania to visit family and come back. The car ran well. The price of this car was about half of the cost of the rental cars we were finding online (about a week before our flight) for the same time and area. It was a great experience overall.

Mayank
BMW Z4 2012
This was my first using Turo and James helped me out all the way. After booking the car I realized I would need more miles than initially offered and James added the option for me to have unlimited miles. His car was super nice and looked really new for a 2012 model. Z4 is the perfect summer car and I am happy I rented this particular one from James. I was even able to extend the drop off by a couple of hours since I woke up late and got stuck in traffic. I had a wonderful experience with James and Turo and I’m never using a car rental agency again.
Mayank A. - May 16, 2019

Honestly, there's not a single thing that could have been better! The car is both powerful on the highway and easy to steer into narrow parking spots. Han responded quickly and clearly to all questions, and the pickup and drop off could not have been easier. I had the car for 46 days, and I'd gladly rent again. A+++++

Tesla Model 3 2018
Sandwiched between my two business days in Washington D.C. area were several days off just before the Labor Day weekend that I wanted to spend with my wife and in-laws who were on a family reunion in Vermont. Since I had already placed an order for a Tesla Model 3 Performance car, this trip was a perfect opportunity to rent a similar Model 3 and see how it feels on a long trip to and from Vermont. Shane's car performed marvelously and I was happy beyond compare. My family members were equally impressed by it, asking questions and looking forward to my own car's delivery back in LA. Having seen, read and followed Model 3 reviews and articles over the last couple of years, I was already familiar with its features when I rented the car, so it was a natural transition for me. The long trip (>500 miles one way) was truly enjoyable in both rain and shine. The car was equipped with the E-ZPass device which helped a great deal on numerous toll roads. Tesla Supercharger stops were opportunities to rest or explore new places and meet new people, especially other Tesla owners and enthusiasts. Shane also provided an extension cord and an adapter so I could charge the car's battery from a regular AC outlet at the remote Vermont farm. He was a very thoughtful host and committed to me having the best experience possible with his incredible car.

Local Washington DC favorites

No visit to our nation’s capital is complete without beholding the White House and the Washington Monument, but book a car and push the boundaries of the usual DC junket.

  • Sip subtly in a speakeasy

  • Perhaps a holdover from Prohibition days, Washington DC is rife with speakeasy bars that attract mellower crowds. Google around and find the clandestine bar that appeals to your tastes.

  • The Smithsonian

  • The museum scene is strong in DC. Once you hit all of the necessary patriotic monuments in your car, try to visit some of the Smithsonian’s 19 museums around town.

  • Get outdoors

  • Most folks don’t think camping when they think DC, but drive out to Shenandoah or run with the wild horses on Assateague or Chincoteague islands and prepare to be wowed.
