This car was perfect for our trip. It’s clean, comfortable, gets amazing gas mileage and the pick up and drop off were smooth, easy and friendly. Car has USB port for phone charging, push to start, a spacious trunk and excellent air conditioning. I would definitely rent this car again for my next trip to Charleston.

Allison’s car was very nice, clean and fun to drive. It is more the size of a sedan than an SUV, which was great for Charleston’s small streets and parking. The whole experience was much more fun than renting from the typical car rental companies. Thanks!

This was our first time using Turo and Nic made the experience so easy and great! The convenience of the pick up and drop off was fantastic and the car was way better than something from the other big rental companies. Would HIGHLY recommend booking with Nic for any trips to the Charleston, SC area!

A great car for a great town! The car was supremely comfortable to ride around in, even when the roads around Charleston were terribly bumpy and full of traffic, which was always. Ben was wonderful to work with, and made everything far easier than we I imagined it would be. If given the option, we are going to continue trying to rent this car from Ben on all of our future trips to Charleston.

Renting with Britney was great! Her car was very clean and a smooth ride. I loved how thorough she was with the rental agreement and knowing it was my first time experiencing Turo. If any of you are in Charleston, I highly recommend renting Britney's vehicle (if its available).

It was super easy finding the car and dropping it off at Charleston airport. When we had a few questions pop up towards the end of our trip, Nic responded very quickly. The Mini Cooper was fantastic and fun to drive around Charleston. It was also very nice and easy to park on city streets or in “small car” spaces in public ramps. Surprising amount of storage for two people between the trunk and back seat. Would highly recommend Nic’s car for your travels!

Tasso's car is beautiful!!! So much fun to take around Charleston. She made the pick up and drop off a breeze. She got back to me right away whenever I had a question. The car is exceptional!! I would rent from Tasso on my next trip to Charleston. She made my first Turo experience a great one!

Michael went above and beyond! He communicated well and in a timely manner. Unfortunately, we missed our flight to Charleston following an accident on our commute. Michael was very understanding of the delay and not only had the car ready for us when we arrived 4 hours later, but he was also flexible in allowing us to use the car for the full 24 hours we had already paid for at his suggestion. He briefly checked in with us at the beginning and end of our rental to ensure things went smoothly. If you’re hesitant about Turo I highly recommend Michael for an incredible experience, you won’t regret it!

My first time trying turo, it was recommend by my daughter in law. I couldn't have asked for a more understanding and efficient car owner as Britney. She made this first experience a pleasure. Her kia sportage was a fabulous car to drive, it was clean and ran really well. I had a little issue at tbr beginning as my phone data was lacking as i was roaming internationally but she was so understanding. I will gladly use and recommend this renter in the future.

Maile
Nissan Versa Note 2014
This was my first trip using Turo. Michael is excellent he was able to accommodate getting the car to the airport at 1am in the morning when all the rental cars were closed. He was quick to respond to any of my questions and even went out of his way to assist me. I'd give him 10 stars if I could. I recommend renting from Michael if I'm in southern California again he is the first person I will reach out to.
