Joan made coordinating easy. She texted back and forth for a week or two before as the weather was unpredictable. She was quite flexible with pick up and drop off time and enabled everything through the app. Since this was my first rental through Turo, she was kind and helpful. The car was an incredible machine, and I thoroughly enjoyed driving it. Will definitely rent again :)

The rental was so easy and affordable that I had my doubts. However, it went exactly as described and I was very pleased by the service and the vehicle. I rented the Fiat 500 which is perfect for 2 people with 2 carry-ons. The car fits into the smallest of spaces and is comfortable to drive in the city or freeway. The owner was very accommodating and easy to communicate with. I’ll definitely be renting from him on my next trip to LA.
