From start to finish Wilmer helped make our trip hassle free. The Jeep was ready and waiting for us to pick up as scheduled. Not only is the vehicle beautiful and clean, but it rides great too. It was nice to ride around downtown DC with the top down, taking in the views. Communication is key and Wilmer was great at helping to make arrangements that worked well for everyone. He was a pleasure to work with and the car was perfect for our weekend. Thank you Wilmer!

Second time renting but with different vehicle. Great experience, courteous, and easy to schedule drop off. I made this rental last minute for an emergency trip and was very pleased with the level of flexibility and professional communication. Would highly recommend.

My BEST rental car experience ever!!! I love that Audi Q7. It was comfortable and clean just like a new car out of the dealership. It was like borrowing a car from a friend or family. It was quick. Idham was great. He was flexible with the locations and times for pick up and drop off. It was so easy to rent for him. He replied quickly and let me extend the length of my my trip. It was a great experience! I will definitely rent from him again.

The car drive nice and had no problems even in the backroads. We had a lot of fun and recommend the car for longer road trips, camping and beach days alike. Since it’s an older car, expect less luxuries, like build in navigation or so.

Shane’s Model X was a blast. Real smooth ride with a lot of technology advancements that are evident everywhere. It was my first experience with auto-pilot and it was breathtaking. During one of our charging stops, we even had a car stop by on the street and begged us to demo the cool falcon doors. The only big problem: now my wife wants one for herself tomorrow! :-)

I really enjoyed working with Kent on rental. Very professional; great communication; great vehicle. Never driven MDX so was questioned whether MDX was big enough for family (2adults/2kids) on 4 day trip. The MDX was comfortable and perfect for what we needed. Thanks again. Look forward to working with you again.

Jeep Wrangler 2014
Darin's Jeep was awesome and not something you would ever be able to get through a regular car rental. He was also awesome and positive about the whole experience especially for my first rental thru turo. Dropped the car off slightly early which was a bonus and has been amazing about returning to me an EZ pass and a prized 10ft lightning cable we left behind like dummies. Darin was very helpful during the walk through on the Jeep-- not sure if listed elsewhere but the Jeep has awesome tires, custom bumpers and front lights and a rear LED in case you're in extra dark areas. Really saved us in some of the rural and hilly areas where we took the car. It has a CB radio as well which is just a fun nice touch. Highly recommended that you rent this vehicle from Darin.

I would highly recommend this car to anyone who is looking for something fun and easy to drive in the DC area. If the car is available next time I am in the area I will definitely be coming back for another drive.

Wilmer and his Toyota Highlander were the perfect rental for our trip to the amusement parks this past week. We needed a big vehicle for everyone taking the trip and Wilmers highlander was affordable, large, comfortable, and clean! Everyone was impressed. Wilmer provided excellent communication and quick responses all before, during, and after the trip. Both pick up and drop off were quick and easy, the car was clean with smelled like a new car. The car had no issues and drove great, being a hybrid you almost didn't hear the car running, gas mileage was great for a large SUV and the sound system was great. He had a USB car charger included which was great because I forgot mine. I would definitely use one of Wilmers vehicles in the future and recommend 100%, Thanks again Wilmer!

Elshan was very easy to communicate with and the curbside pick up and drop off was so much more convenient than going through a traditional rental company. The Kia has great horsepower and great gas mileage for an SUV. Comfortable ride for my whole family and there’s a huge double moonroof.

Everything about this trip was perfect. Jeremy was responsive and his cars were exceptional. He clearly communicated in advance and made sure we got all the details needed.

Don’t hesitate - especially if you need something special for a special occasion!

Saved us hours of frustration at a rental counter. The car is perfect. It was very clean, tires looked like new, and it was a pleasure to drive. You can tell that the owner takes pride in his vehicle. Definitely a 5 star trip, and I hope Jon will rent to us again!

This is my first time using Turo and my experience with Wilmer and this Rouge vehicle was simply outstanding! He has the best customer engagement model to ensure your experience exceeds all expectations, any easy pick up and return process, and the vehicle performed magnificently in the harsh DC metro area weather this weekend. If you have the distinct opportunity to rent this vehicle and also get to engage with Wilmer take it!! It will be well worth your time and investment to an awesome rental experience.

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.
