I was disappointed by 2 rental car companies and Patrick saved my weekend. Thanks again for going out of your way to accommodate me. You are much appreciated and I will rent the next time I need a car rental in Atlanta.
Lorraine - October 7, 2019
Patrick was very easy to work with and agreed to deliver the car to the airport on very short notice. I would definitely rent a car through him on Turo again! Thanks!

Word of advice: Book Andre’s Audi A5 on Turo instead of paying the same amount (or more) for a Nissan Altima from one of the big car rental companies.

Rental cars in ATlanta were scarce and very expensive. I decided to try Turo. and was pleasantly surprised. It worked like a champ and saved me on exorbitant price gouging from the rental car companies.

Had a great time with Abram's car. The rental process was smooth and straightforward, and Abram is very accommodating and quick to reply to any messages. Would be more than happy to rent a car from him again, and I just might do that in the future!

Thumbs up for Victor and his Turo car rental services. The pick-up and return was smooth. He also communicated quickly and effectively. This car was good on gas. I rented this vehicle for 4 days and a full tank lasted me the entire time. For future renters, it’s important that you follow the rules of this vehicle, so the next renter’s experience is smooth (DO NOT be selfish).

If you’re looking for a awesome experience without all the rental car company hassle this is the spot to rent a car from. Don took great care of me while I was in town for the weekend. Take advantage of the free car wash before you embark on the town Don made sure to let me know it was free to ride clean. Also last but not least this car is a gas SAVER! Thanks again to the Auto team and most of Don for an amazing experience.

Michael is a very professional guy. He was prompt and organized. The new Corolla was fantastic. A great experience overall. Highly recommended to anyone interested. As a seasoned traveler this is the best option for car rental, especially when picking up and dropping off at Hartsfield International Airport. Thanks Michael,

Pickup and return was a breeze. I was nervous renting a somewhat older vehicle (2012 Volkswagen Jetta) but it was in good condition so I didn’t have any issues. Communication was also excellent from Natalie as she communicated pickup and return instructions efficiently. I’ve rented cars from a handful of hosts and this is by far the best experience I’ve had utilizing the Turo platform. Natalie will be my top choice in a host for my future rentals.

Matt and his wife run an amazing car rental operation. They helped me through the entire process and when the car I booked wasn’t available they provided me with an great alternative. Would highly recommend renting from them in Atlanta!

Jamark was easy to communicate with and responded to any question immediately. The car was fantastic and easiest pickup and drop-off, no more waiting in line, signing contracts with mainstream car rental companys. I'll use Turo again in my future!

True Professional. This experience was top notch when I expected nothing but disappointment. I typically arrive at Hartsfield around midnight or 1am. I haven't had great experiences when picking up cars at this time; however this experience was completely different. Don's communication was excellent when dealing with a crabby traveler. He talked me on to the correct shuttle. Provided the correct lockbox code. The correct key was in it. (I've had a lockbox contain NO KEY before) Everything was great. I'll probably rent from them again if available.

We had to book a car at Atlanta Airport with VERY short notice. I was able to get a great car in Atlanta for half of the price of the car rental we usually use and we didn't have to get on a tram and ride around to the car rental area! They bring the car directly to you in one hour parking. This whole process could not have been more convenient. You must read the instructions very thoroughly for the process to go smoothly.
Kory C. - November 5, 2018

First time renting with Turo and Joe made it an amazing experience. Way better than a regular car rental. I would recommend this every time. Hope to rent from Joe again in the future.

It was my second time renting from Auto and I will definitely be renting from them again. I unfortunately got a flat tire during my trip and Don with Auto made sure that I was assisted and assured. He is always extremely helpful and kind! I’m always happy when I rent with them and I highly recommend them for anyone’s car rental needs in Atlanta.
Amber T. - September 21, 2019

This was my first time using Turo and I'm pleased I chose one of Janith's cars. During my flight to Atlanta I got online to book my car with a traditional rental agency. To my surprise not a single car was available. I was in shock. I then did a search for auto rental outside of the airport when I found Turo. It was so simple to use and navigate a car choice. Janith was a pleasure to work with. She accommodated my last minute rental. She delivered it curbside of my terminal. I got in the car and went to my meetings. The car was super clean and beautiful. The return was equally as easy. I will be renting from Janith on my next trip to Atlanta. Thank you Janith for making my first experience a great one. I will no longer use traditional car rental. If I have the option I will use Turo.
Chris L. - November 8, 2018

I was in town for a quick business trip and grabbed Zer0420's Camaro at the last minute. The car was clean and in good mechanical condition. It's a beautiful car, and fun to drive. Communication was clear and easy, even when a small hiccup occurred on my end. I'll definitely look to rent from him again when I'm back in town.
Eric T. - March 16, 2020

Joy’s M4 is an incredible piece of mechanical artwork. They are also a key point of what makes Turo such an incredible platform. Clear communication and a tutorial on the in and outs of the car. Incredible to work with through out the whole rental process. Would 100% recommend them and will certainly keep them in mind next time I am visiting.

My trip was simply amazing! This is my 3rd time renting from Juliues and he has proven that he is the best person to rent from when using turo. From being professional, to the quick responses/approvals, all the way to having the best rental rates...Julieus has my business hands down! I can’t see myself renting from anyone else in the Atlanta area. Thank you! Until next time... :)

Thoroughly enjoyed using Adriana's Mercedes while in Atlanta last weekend. Really appreciated her communication throughout the process and she made a point of being flexible with me regarding arrangements for pick up and return. Her car is in very good condition and handles well. Had an issue with the rear view camera not working but otherwise was excellent. Would definitely utilize again if needed in Atlanta.

Gary is hands down one of the best people I have rented from on this Turo App. Next time I’m in ATLANTA I will definitely be renting from him. Everything went smoothly I highly recommend if your in town and looking for a great vehicle to rent you should rent from Gary !! He has multiple cars in inventory also.

This was my first time renting a car and using Turo. It was a completely stress free experience. Kam met us at the airport for pick up and drop off, and was very understanding of our confusion with the maze of the Atlanta airport and didn’t mind when we were running late. The car ran great, and being a hybrid it got great mileage. It beats traditional car rental any day.
Jennifer T. - April 23, 2019

Charlston was amazing. The vehicle was so clean and he took really good care of me throughout the trip with anything I had questions about. The communication and flexibility was excellent. I’d definitely rent a car from him again.
Tiffany G. - February 3, 2019
Toyota Camry Hybrid 2009
Good: Convenient pickup and drop off, half the cost of a traditional rental car Bad: Odd smell (possibly smoker rented previously), difficulty identifying efficient communication Overall: The convenience of the pick up and drop off was an extraordinary improvement over traditional rental car experiences. I learned about Turo from a friend who rents his car through Turo. I traveled during Thanksgiving so the cost of a rental car can be extraordinary. I rented a car through Turo once I found the availability of rental cars limited through the car rental companies. When I arrived at the airport, I sent emails to Patrick because I wasn't familiar with how to text or call. I discovered this feature later, which is a comment about the app and not Patrick. Working with Patrick was seamless. Once I discovered how to call/text, I found where he was and how long until he would arrive at the curb outside of the terminal. The handoff took less time than the process of loading my luggage. There was an odd smell in the car, which I assume was related to a past smoker. I quickly acclimated but it seemed to bother my wife for the duration of the rental. I also had to replace the battery in the key fob, but this type of issue is likely to occur when you rent an older car. Returning the car to the airport was the real selling point. I always schedule an extra 45 minutes for rental car return at the rental car center. In this case, I told Patrick my ETA as I was arriving and he was waiting for me in the terminal. He came out to the car, retrieved the keys, and drove away. This process was worth the price of the rental. It was smooth and quick. I'm actually surprised Turo doesn't advertise this as a selling point. The experience with a rental car company is completely different.

Awesome car and super helpful owner. I rented this incredible top-of-the-lone performance S for a day to test it out before deciding to purchase one. The car and rental experience could not have been more ideal.

Best Atlanta driving roads

The Suches Loop

Running in a circle through the Chattahoochee National Forest and Blue Ridge Mountains, this route, known as “Georgia’s Dragon,” challenges drivers with more than 50 miles of tight turns and elevation changes.

North Georgia Scenic Highway 197

More scenic than daring, this highway runs by three lovely Georgia lakes and was once the preferred route of bootleggers during prohibition, which is to say it’s a less crowded drive.

Appalachian Foothills Parkway

Wind through the North Georgia mountains on the exciting twists of GA 515 and GA 52 toward Ellijay to catch striking views of the Amicalola Falls and Brasstown Bald Peak.
