Couldn't ask for a better first experience on Turo! Christian was not only punctual and polite during pickup, but he stayed in touch with us throughout our trip with some excellent suggestions on everything from Trails and lakes to restaurants and travel times. We've been spoiled by this great first experience as compared to a standard car rental agency, and we will be using this app only from now on due in part to Christian's hospitality. I would highly recommend this great Turo host!
First time using Turo and it was great. Brandon was flexible with time and his communication was timely. Arranged to meet at the airport. It was so easy, better than using car rental companies. Great value for the vehicle!!
Bassel is such a wonderful person. His hybrid RAV4 is fairly new and clean, and most importantly it really saved a lot of fuel and money when I have to drive around to see all the attractions in the city and the suburban areas. I truly think it’s worth the rental money considering the high fuel price across the country. I really have nothing bad to say about the car and the owner. Bassel was very attentive and showed a lot of care about my trip. He even said he will be prepared to serve me 24/7 if there is any concerns about the RAV4 by calling his cell phone. There was also one last nice surprises when he learned that I will be left without a car for a few hours before flying out of Calgary after returning the car. Bassel then offered me a few free hours that allowed me to hang around in the city and had also arranged to pick up the car at the airport instead of at the hotel as original agreed. End up I have spent a few hours in the city to have a coffee and do some last minute shopping. Bassel concluded my trip in a wonderful way. :) I definitely will rent from him again next time when I visit Calgary.
Donrick was extremely helpful and made the entire rental process a breeze. Highly recommend!
This was our first time renting through Turo and it was a fabulous experience. Tony went above and beyond to make our trip seamless. It was much better than traditional rental companies. He even circled back to the airport with a special hat my daughter left in the vehicle. Thank you so much for a great first experience Tony!
Avneesh was very accommodating and helpful throughout the rental process. The car was pretty comfortable and reliable. It was worth it.
Awesome rental - flawless! Mark is great - personable and he knows Calgary and Banff/Lake Louise quite well which was very helpful. Mark met us with the Jeep when we arrived and the Jeep was amazing. Vehicle in perfect shape both mechanically and cosmetically, and extremely clean (I felt guilty returning it as dirty as it became on the Lake Louise roads). And returning the vehicle was the best - Mark simply met us at the departures area where we were unloading our luggage (lots of it) which was so much easier than going to a rental location and unloading then re-loading onto a shuttle van and/or hauling it through parking lots over to the terminal. Price was VERY fair and the only problem is that I am now going to have to buy a jeep (really liked Mark's jeep).
This SUV run very smoothly although it was 10 years old. It was very clean inside. Salim took care his car very well. He showed up by the time we were at the airport. I would recommend him for renting this SUV when visiting Calgary
We had an amazing trip with Faheem’s Lincoln. Very nice drive and Faheem was helpful, informative and easy to communicate with. We will definitely be renting from him again when we are back in Calgary and would highly recommend it!
Nick is a great guy. Car wasn’t fancy but it did the job at a great price. Glad to have an AWD with good snow tires a coupes times during the trip.
Had the CX-9 for 5 days on a trip to Calgary, good experience renting with Dylan. Dylan was very accommodating and communicative. Would highly recommend.
Daniel was a great host since our first contact by phone. He was kind and friendly, and his car was awesome. I am used to rent cars using the conventional rental companies and I have never rented a car so clean and ready as Daniel´s. We had a greta time and I would definitely recommend Daniel to anyone.
Great experience with the host Alix, communication went very well, enjoyed the ride to Banff and great city of Calgary. Thanks Alix The traditional rental car companies were all sold out so I was so glad to find this app and booked Alix's car.
Car was good and drives well; we liked the phone holder/charger that allowed us to use our phones to navigate while driving. Jonel is responsive, easy to deal with and even let us use his park pass for free. Would recommend to someone looking for a car near north Calgary / airport.
It’s really a good experience to rent car at Turo and Mark Rethy is a really great person 10/10 for him and his Jeep Wrangler 2012 it’s a perfect vehicle to explore place like Calgary and Rocky’s Definitely recommended.
Very friendly. Car was comfortable to drive. Will rent a car from him again once we visit calgary again.
Great host, communicates very quickly and is accommodating. Answers questions and responds quickly. Very fair price for vehicle and the vehicle is clean and in good condition. Would definitely recommend this car and host.
Great host, very friendly. Clean car, no issues with the car. I would rent again if I was back in Calgary!
Heidi was an excellent host and her Lexus NX was perfect for our trip to Calgary and out to the mountains.
Mark’s Jeep was perfect for our short trip at Calgary/Banff! The Jeep was very clean and had everything we needed. Mark was also very friendly and the pick up & drop off was really easy. Highly recommend :)
Mark was so helpful and great to deal with. We were delayed arriving in Calgary but that was no trouble. Was quick in responding to any messages and queries. He met us promptly on agreed pick up/drop off. Car was as superb and as described, with added bonus of National Parks Pass. Would highly recommend Mark and any of his cars. Will definitely be back in touch with him if visiting Alberta again. For a first time user of Turo was very smooth.
Salim was very quick and professional in responding to all interactions with me from the beginning to the end of the trip. The car was exactly as represented and ready to go when he dropped it off and met us at the airport. He even put our luggage in the vehicle which was appreciated. I would definitely recommend Salim if you’re looking for a truly easy and professional rental experience!
Great experience, vehicle was great for our large family. Would rent from again without question, thank you!
Great 👍 first time rental from this app & I’m very pleased with the rental I got. Gas ⛽️ was pricey but that goes with out saying I would most definitely rent again.
Haitao was a wonderful host and had such an amazing car that was perfect for our trip. Our flight was delayed by 4 hours but he still came 430am to drop of the car at the airport. The car was so big and perfect. 4 of us fit plus 6 luggages with so much space. We took the car to Jasper and back and no issues. We loved it so much. Will surely rent from him again
Leo again has been super amazing when renting with him. Make booking or modify my trip very easy. Thanks Leo
Kelsey was really helpful from pre during and post trip! Her car was excellent as well, fitting 3 large suitcases at minimum while still having a comfortable ride. I would definitely recommend my friends in future should they need a car for a roadtrip or ski trip! Thanks Kelsey for all your help and the best car!
He is the best. Very accommodating and flexible. Also, the car is so smooth. We went to Jasper with it and didn’t experience any problem. The suspension is really good which is an asset for a road trip to mountains. I will definitely use this car again!
I had a great time on my trip. The car was fantastic and Viktor communicated very well with me each step of the way so I was not confused at all. Highly recommend renting from him!
Great customer service and car was in excellent condition, perfect for our week in Calgary/Canmore
Great SUV Great Host Very Helpfully and accommodating I will rent again next time
Great experience with both car and owner! Jed was friendly and easy to deal with. He was available at all times when I had questions. He takes great care of the people who rent his car. The car itself was fantastic. Immaculately clean, in like-new shape and an absolute hoot to drive. I even got a compliment from a stranger on the looks! I would recommend this car and Jed to anyone in a heartbeat.
clean vehicle, and great experience with drop off and pickup at Calgary airport. Bonus was the Parks Canada Pass included with vehicle. Would book again when in Calgary!
Best decision I had made for our first trip to Banff during Winter. Kaiser was friendly and helpful from when we first receive the vehicle early in the morning to the time where we ran into a bit of a problem with the cars due to heavy snowfall. He made sure we got everything working again and it is safe for us to continue our trip in winter conditions. About the car, this is probably a must pick in its price range, considering unlimited mileages, roomy interior with great room for 2 with extra luggages, a whooping 6.8 L / 100km Average for the entire trip consists of mountain roads and city commutes. The driving was really enjoyable, super grippy in the snow, I can feel the traction in every turns. Overall I appreciate the driving experience this car provided, we went through Snowstorm on highway 1, 20cm deep snow hill climb to our Airbnb in Golden, Sunny & muddy day in the town of Canmore and partly icy, windy road to Lake Albraham. We did everything safe and sound, except for one time where heavy snow fall cover couple Safety feature sensors, but it all go away with a light warm water shower in Banff. Definitely a must pick next time I am back in Calgary.
Great Vehicle altogether! We drove from Calgary to Banff and all around the Banff national park using Barbara’s Toyota Highlander. This was my first time driving in the snow, Barbara’s AWD SUV gave me the confidence to trek over 700km around Banff in the middle of Canadian winter in March. Great mileage as well, 700+km per full tank. Smooth delivery/drop off from Barbara at the airport. Always good to rent from family own business. I highly recommend!
Great vehicle to whip around Calgary and surrounding areas and very fuel efficient! 😊
My best car rental experience EVER! This MB GLA is a "sweet ride" that has good manners on gas but can pull out and pass with confidence when you want it. I drove this car for nearly three weeks through Alberta and BC, covering multiple snowy mountain passes and the GLA "rocked it". A pleasure to drive and very capable car. Jiyoung and her husband were very professional and courteous to deal with. I would love to be able to arrange another trip with them in the future.
Nous avons loué le superbe Jeep à Mark pour une durée de 5 jours durant notre visite à Calgary. Il est extrêmement propre, sécuritaire et facile à conduire! De plus Mark nous a dinne beaucouo d'informations sur tout ce que nous avions à visiter! Il est facile de lui envoyer un message et la réponse se est immédiate. Je le recommande fortement et le Jeep est LE moyen de transport dans la région de Banff et aux alentours
Vito is an outstanding host. Great communication and service. Met me at the airport for the drop off at the exact time I was there. My family loved the car and now we’re thinking of buying one for our self. Will surely rent in the future
Marks Jeep was perfect for our first trip to Alberta! He had a lot of great suggestions for things to do and see in the area. He was on time for both the pick up and drop off which made our travels hassle free. Will definitely be back again, and will definitely rent his Jeep again! Great guy, great vehicle!
Renting from Haitao has been a great experience. I highly recommend to anyone for short term or long term rental.
Wonderful car, wonderful host with great communication! I would definitely recommend and I would rent this suv again.
Casey was so kind and hospitable, and the vehicle was pristine and just what we needed. Fantastic rental!
We had an excellent trip in Marks Jeep. The jeep is brilliant and we are really glad we booked it. Mark was a pleasure to deal with and was very informative. We would highly recommend booking one of marks vehicles.
Very attentive individual Calgary Turo Member. Can answer everything you ever wanted to know about Tesla! Highly recommended.
It’s my first time to use Turo and i could say Vishal gave me a exceptional experience with it… his vehicle is a 2013 but drives like a 2022, smooth very clean and comfortable, me and my family feels safe at all times,our transaction was well ordered as he is very flexible of times. Thank you again sir and all the best!
This trip was great! Pick up/drop off is close the YYC airport. Anthony was quick to respond and helped me out a lot. We were here for 5 days vacation and felt like we drove a lot, but still had left over km’s to use. Worth the pay! 10/10 recommended.
Mark was an awesome host. He gave us helpful tips of places to go and things to do. He made the trip very easy and enjoyable. Would highly recommend renting through Mark!
I would recommend renting from Amanda and Jason. The car showed its age, but is incredibly well kept and ran great for our 3 day trip. We drove to Banff with snowy conditions and the car handled great. A couple suggestions to clarify up front: despite the listing stating free pickup and drop off at the airport, the host added a $50 charge to drop off at the airport after our trip had begun. In addition they sent the drop off instructions 30 minutes before our trip ended, which includes instructions about needing a car wash. We assumed car wash was included in the price and had already arrived at the airport by the time we read the instructions. Again overall our experience was great and would simply recommend agreeing on drop off criteria before beginning the trip.
Great rental. Awesome vehicle and very fun to drive! Wonderful communication with Francois. Highly recommend renting with him and Cathy.
An excellent experience. Matt was very helpful, gave great instructions, and made the rental a pain free experience. Car also performed perfectly in the snow and street.
Leo’s Honda Pilot 2019 are awesome to drive! The lane keeping assist and the adaptive cruise control is a really nice bonus specially for a long drive to the mountains! Made our family trip comfortable and safe! Bella was also super awesome too! A really good host that will make me use Turo more! As a first time Turo user, I’m glad I got Leo and Bella as a host!
Mark was amazing! Understanding and flexible. He gave us amazing spots to hike and eat! Very friendly and the jeep is amazing! It was like visiting a family member you had not seen in a long time. Rent the jeep you will love it
Chris her Jeep was perfect for our road trip through the national parks, fully equipped with everything you can think of! Moreover, Chris was very helpful, flexible and easily reachable. She explained how everything worked and the attention points. Chris even arrived earlier with the car than scheduled because we had mistaken the time difference when booking! She moreover was able to pick up the car earlier because our flight was rescheduled! In conclusion, a great car and an even better host! I would definitely recommend her car to others.
Amazing host and very nice, clean and new SUV 👌 beautiful panoramic sunroof to capture Banff.
Zhe was super easy to organize with and accommodates our family nicely. He is also very quick to respond to messages. The CRV we rented was perfect for our family of 5 and ran smoothly. The car also had snow tires which was a bonus given calgary spring weather 😉. Thanks Zhe!
Experience a different side of Alberta’s landscape and head south along Highway 22 for a relaxing drive with plenty of opportunities to pull over to visit the antique shops or small-town eateries.
Known for the area’s mining history and stretching toward the British Columbia border, Crowsnest Highway, or Highway 3, twists and turns west with breathtaking mountain scenery and captivating southern Alberta towns.
Spanning the entire length of Canada, the highway section in Alberta from Canmore to Lake Louise is especially stunning with glacier landforms, sweeping pine trees, and snow-capped mountain peaks.
