Rented Ali’s Telsa Model 3 as a birthday treat. It was one of the best deals available for a Tesla rental on Turo for its proximity. We had an absolutely amazing and memorable trip. The car is beautiful and is a performance model which made it all the more fun to drive. Ali is really friendly and accommodating and made us feel so welcome in his car. Thank you for this amazing rental! We will definitely be back again!! 😊

Usman. Oh my, I could say endless good things about Usman.. First things first. It was a total emergency this trip. I didn't rent the car for fun! It was something I needed right there and then. Usman made that happen! I got to the humane society and back in time to pick up my kids! Thanks Usman Second. The cars lit! I love a nissan. Cheap. Gets you around! Great on gas! Like I've said before.. Usman is my to go to guy! I check all his cars, see what's available, before I look else where! This won't be my last rental with Usman. I'll be back!

Excellent car. First off its cheap on gas. About 30$ to fill up the tank and it's able to do a round trip from Toronto to London without using the full tank. Its fast and zippy and is very sturdy on the highway even at higher speeds. The speakers are nice and loud. Ruber is a great host and very friendly. Very excellent city car that is nice and fun. I'll definitely rent it again.

Maor’s Porsche is awesome! Beautiful car, clean, like new. Sounds nice, doesn’it? But that is not the best part! You need to listen the exhaust sound, shifting the gears, with the pdk system!!! Sounds different of all another sports cars!!! Believe me!!! You need to listen it once in your Life! Maor is so awesome like his car! Thank you so much!!!

This is one of the fastest car (and the best value!) you can find on Toronto's Turo. The host is fantastic. Supercharging is free and very convenient, the Fairview Mall's charging rate was at 100+kW (or 670+ km/hr). I would definitely recommend Ali. Thanks again for the amazing experience!

FIAT 500 2013
This renter made my life so much easier I'm so glad I got the car from him. I needed help because I'm not familiar with the app since I'm a new user. I called him instead of waiting for an answer through the app messages because what I was doing was time sensivite. I woke him up from sleeping and felt bad and said I would call back but he insisted it wasn't a problem. He then helped walk me through the app and what to do step by step because I told him I wasn't a big technology person and he wanted to make sure it did exactly what i wanted. He met me way earlier than expected since I told him I needed the rental asap he sorted me out pretty much immediately thankfully so I was able to make it to my event on time which really made my night because I wouldn't have been able to otherwise. He is also a great guy because I had an emergency come up when I was about to return the car so I let him know and that I was sorry but he refused to take my money for the late return since it wasn't my fault. 10 out of 10 for service and friendliness I probably will not rent from anyone else if I ever need to use a vehicle again since he made my life that much easier and was so easy to work with. And I absolutely love the vehicle I may buy one myself when k replace my vehicle next month. Thanks Usman!

MINI Cooper Coupe 2012
The Mini Cooper is a whip. It’s really small and fast and turns on a dime. It can only carry two people and the trunk space is only for small items. Veego is actually a rental company not a person- but they communicate punctually and clearly.
Russell Y. - March 16, 2020

We had a great day renting Sinan's car! He was responsive during our trip when we had questions about using the car. We had a slight issue with the key remote but Sinan was quick to respond and tried to help us resolve it. Sinan was also very flexible when we decided to return the car early.

Tesla Model 3 2019
Amazing host, amazing car, affordable price.This is probably the best Model 3 you can get on Turo. Unlimited mileage, very clean and tidy, just like a new car and free supercharging. The performance model has almost 500hrspwr, the new generation autopilot (which is really cool), and an entertainment system which was a great way to pass time while i waited for the car to charge. The only thing that I could not use was the summon feature that this car did not have. Ali was very friendly and helpful. He was very easy to communicate with and i couldnt have asked for a better Turo experience. Overall it is a very good deal!

Pranay has been really patient the day I had to pick up his car due to some customer service issues with Turo that lasted 3 hours! He even called them to try resolving the issue with me. Not everyone will do that. His car was fun and convenient to ride. Also great deal when it comes to cheap cars downtown Toronto. Will definitely book with him again!

Best Toronto driving roads

Niagara Peninsula

Wind your Toronto car rental alternative along the Niagara Parkway from Lake Ontario down to Fort Erie on this scenic day trip. You’ll get a glimpse of the Horseshoe Falls and find plenty of history and lookout spots on the way.

Highway 60 or Frank McDougall Parkway

Most striking in the fall, head north in your Toronto car rental alternative from the city to catch this provincial highway that leads you through a bevy of lakes before guiding you through twisty turns in the famous Algonquin Park.

Yonge Street

While Yonge is no longer considered the world’s longest road, it’s still the best way to feel the glow and pulse of the city. Head north in your Toronto car rental alternative toward New Market for a quick trip out of town.
