I had a lot of changes with my trip and had to extend not once but twice. it was easy and quick and both Justin and the people who helped him with the rental were great and easy to talk to. some of the Turo car owners were actually very rude about renting to me and I am not sure why. But everything with my car and trip were great!
Michelle - October 27, 2019
Hands down the best rental car experience I’ve ever had! Clean vehicle that was in excellent shape. Communication and service was top notch. Our family was running very late for our flight and we were met curbside upon drop off. Can’t get much better service than that :) I highly recommend you rent a vehicle from Justin, you won’t regret it.

Very convenient for my trip. Delivery was very helpful as my plane arrived late at night and car rental companies were closed.
Aaron - June 12, 2019
Tianshuang is a super example of the best of Turo. He has a great selection of cars, great prices and great service, and he runs his business well. The other people I met who were renting from him had similar stories to tell of how he did better for them than anyone else. Turo is about cars, but it is about freedom and greater options and opportunity. Turo is about the democratization of car rental. Renting from Tianshuang was a great small business and freedom experience. When I return to Chicago I absolutely will be using Turo, and Tianshuang again.

My first impression of John's RAV4 was, impeccable. It looks like it was just driven off the new car lot. This attention to detail was shown throughout our experience. Communication, pickup, drop-off worked out flawlessly. Plenty of room inside for the four of us and our four days luggage. Including a large hockey bag and sticks iPass was extremely helpful for the numerous toll roads around Chicago. Quick reimbursement to John after the trip and done. No worrying about paying online or stopping and fumbling around for cash or dealing with toll stations that won't take credit cards. I would not hesitate to work work with John and his RAV4 again. Thanks John!

Mohammad has been the best first experience I have had with Turo. The moment I had landed in Chicago and turned off my airplane mode, I received a call from Mohammad as if he was a seer. He promptly dropped off the car at the airport and made the whole experience seamless and worry-free. Thanks Mohammad - best of luck with your cardiology career!

Presto met us at the airport upon our arrival in Chicago. The car drop off was a bit more complicated as his UBER broke down en route. Presto was kind enough to arrange a drop off at a local Starbucks and paid for our UBER to the airport.

My man Matt coming in clutch again with the Corvette. Second time I take a day trip out from Boston to Chicago this month, this time celebrating my wife’s birthday. Great service like before and the car was immaculate. I wont be back to Chicago again for a while but if I do go back I have no reason to go to a rental place. I will absolutely recommend Matt to all my family and friends if they are ever around town and need to rent a car.

These guys are absolutely fantastic! They've really got their rental system down to a T, they're very enterprising, and they put the customer first. On my trip back to the airport, I happened to forget my water bottle in Mason's car. Mason was kind enough to drive all the way back from his depot to the airport to return the water bottle before my flight. All around could not recommend more highly. And the free airport shuttle is a lovely bonus!

I rented Michael’s Red Jetta. The car is in good condition for its age, drives very well except for a hesitation in the higher gears on the highway. For this reason, I recommend it for a stylish and comfortable ride locally, on Lake Shore, etc but would not suggest it for a long trips on the highway where the occasional lack of immediate acceleration could be dangerous. Other than that, the interior is lovely and I enjoyed driving it.

Local Chicago favorites

Millennium Park and Michigan Avenue aren’t without their charms, but try booking a car and getting off the beaten path for your next Windy City weekend.

  • Grinders & deep dish

  • The great debate over the best Chicago-style pizza soldiers on, but Giordano’s, Lou Malnati’s, and The Art of Pizza are perennial favorites. Also, notably, the Chicago Diner is one of the best vegan eateries in the country.

  • Chicago Jazz, Baby

  • Louis Armstrong built his reputation in the Windy City, so Chicago is a hotbed of unique and historic jazz venues. Drive your Turo car over to The Green Mill or Jazz Showcase.

  • Wrigley Field

  • While not quite off the beaten path, Wrigley Field is a must for any baseball fan. Built in 1914, it’s the second oldest stadium in the country (after Fenway Park in Boston).
