Evandro is the Best host very kind and responsive love to have his car again Highly recommend his car
My experience with Brad was quick and easy. Everything went very smoothly. I recommend using Brad when you need a rental car.
great communication and pickup / drop off process was easy and convenient. perfect set of wheels to get us around for a few days!
We really enjoyed out quick trip to Austin and driving this luxury car. Great communication. Thank you!
May was great and the car was very pleasurable to drive. Definitely not the last time I rent a car from her. Highly recommend.
Garrett was very responsive and flexible. Car was clean and in great condition. Would rent again
I got in a minor accident during my trip, but May could not have been more understanding about it. She really helped make a very stressful situation easier.
Blake was great to deal with and very flexible. Had a great time traveling the hill country in this convertible. Will definitely deal with Blake again when we travel down to the Austin area!!
The car was amazing! The Mercedes was so much fun to drive, great condition, and honestly my favorite car I have ever driven(And I’ve had BMWs Jaguars to a 1969 Mustang).Was more than just a car rental, but a vacation that my fiancé and I enjoy, even just going to the grocery store became a special experience. Carlos was awesome! Not only was he a kind, friendly, reliable guy, but he truely wanted us to have the best experience possible!! When there was a confusion on my part about pickup time, he was understanding and went out of his way to make sure we were able to get the car and not have to cancel. Highly recommend both Carlos and his beautiful ride!
Alex was super accommodating and even shared his must do, see, and eat list w us!! Tx ure the best!
Gunner is absolutely the most amazing host. He is kind, accommodating, flexible, and has the most amazing communication skills for anything you need. The car was in excellent condition, drove amazing, was extremely clean, and gets the best gas mileage! It only costs 27 dollars max to fill up! If you are looking for a car that is very roomy, drives flawlessly, and has the SUV feel with the compact car parking and gas mileage this is the car for you! 5 people can fit with ease, and if you are traveling with children car seats fit amazing with plenty of room for the front passengers if needed! Best expensive on turo yet! Gunner is a super host!
Everything about my experience with Wes and Turo was amazing. Wes’s communication was excellent and prompt. I had a small adjustments on my pick up and return time that Wes graciously accepted.
Smooth car rental transaction. The car was clean, runs great and Ritesh is quick to communicate. Thanks for a breezy trip!
Was the perfect ride for our ladies weekend! Convertible definitely a MUST in Austin!
Alexander was incredibly responsive and accommodating, and the car handled quite nicely. Could not recommend any more highly!
Great car! Very easy process. Gregg was spot on with the rental.
EASY!! The entire process was seamless and couldn't be any easier. Harlan's car was beautiful and suited our needs perfectly. We would definitely rent from Harlan again!
David was very easy to work with. He communicated clearly and his car was perfect for getting around Austin! I would definitely rent again. Thanks!
Pavel was a fantastic host to us during our visit to Austin for Memorial Day weekend. His Corvette is a beautiful, high-performance sports car. It was spotless and delivered with a full tank of gas. Pavel was easy to interact with during the entire rental, and we appreciated his courtesy and professionalism. Highly recommended!
This was a great first experience with Turo, May was amazing and I will definitely be using this service again!
Such a unique car. It was a perfect fun way to exit our wedding reception. Gregg was great with everything.
A great trip. The car is amazing- very comfortable and fun to drive and john made pickup and drop off a breeze. I would definitely rent from him again. All around a great experience.
Nicholas was amazing you should definitely rent from him if you get the opportunity. It was a tremendous experience!
This was my first Turo rental and Mario was great at communicating with me. Pick up and drop off was so easy, and I liked being able to pick out the exact car to rent. I would definitely recommend Turo and Mario!
Davie is an excellent host, I highly recommend renting from him. I got the Prius and it was my first time driving one, and I'm am astonished by how little gas it uses!
The car was exactly as advertised! Everything was spotlessly clean and well maintained for a relatively "older" model car. Pickup and drop-off were super convenient with Nicholas' concierge service...just grabbed the key from them when I was picking up and dropped back off to them when I returned; couldn't have been any easier. Nicholas was efficient with responses and made the whole process seamless.
Levi was extremely professional and flexible. He also went out of his way to provide advice on how to make the most of the Tesla. I'll definitely reach out to him again when visiting Austin.
Thank You for Turo Had an Great Car great on gas very smooth drive Thank you Ritesh joy your business
Great fuel-efficient ride that got me exactly where I need to be
It was smooth sailing. Great on gas and Derek’s communication was great. Would rent from him again.
Juan was super easy to communicate with! I would definitely rent his car again. As a first time user I am sold!
There were a few hiccups on both ends but Trey handled it amazingly and made sure to communicate quickly which made the trip easy. If I'm ever in Texas I will only try and rent from Troy.
Car worked out great, Ritesh was communicative and super friendly!
Ricardo and his BMW were great. Had it for 2 days and it was a great price for an awesome little car. Would use him again!
Great experience with Mario & his Audi. Car was parked in a super convenient location in the main Garage, spotless, and ran smoothly. Adapter to connect iphone was a bonus!
Great person to rent from and the car was super clean and in great condition!
My first time using Turo and it really could not have gone better. Derek was great to work with and the convenience and price was also really good.
Super nice guy and very accommodating! Great experience and the car is so fun to drive!
2nd trip with Carlos and once again, had a blast! The car really makes a boring drive to Dallas a fun exciting experience! He was super kind when I woke up late and missed the drop off time by a few hours. I felt terrible but he was super professional! This is our go to rental! For all future trips
Just wanted to say that Michael was very good to work with & I would definitely recommend Michael & TURO to everyone & they will definitely have my repeat business. Also, the Jaguar F-Type is a K... A.. Ride!!!
Working with TJ is a breeze. This was our first Turo experience and it couldn’t have gone better.
Ritesh is a truly fantastic host, and really goes the extra mile to make the entire process as welcoming and easy for the customer as possible! He's easy to communicate with and really willing to work with you if needed. I've seen him preparing vehicles for other people, and he is truly dedicated to making sure every person's trip gets started in a spotless, maintained car they'll love! From flexible pickups and drop offs to making vehicle returns a breeze with unlimited professional car washes, it has been a pleasure working with Ritesh and I'm looking forward to working with him again!
Emily was super easy to work with and the car was great. We would be happy to rent from Emily again!
Warner and her husband were AWESOME! Her Tesla was in great condition and an incredible ride!
We had a little issue to get started but Gregg got us squared away.
Courteous, punctual and fun car to drive we’re going to miss the little skittel;)
Great car. Easy and convenient pickup. My flight arrival time changed twice and Michael was very accommodating.
The car is in good shape and May is very flexible and responds instantly. I recommend it!
May is the best in the business! Very hard working and 100% dedicated to her customer experience. Thank you!
Asser is very friendly and i will definitely use his car sometime soon.
Kevin is great guy and flexible...couldn’t have asked for more. Will recommend to friends.
From picking me up at the airport to coordinating the return everything was VERY easy. The car was clean, well maintained and MUCH better than the tin cans that you get from the typical car rental places. Very much recommend.
Ms Anita is a great host! I really enjoyed driving the Prius, it handles well and gets 50mpg. Meeting Anita was very nice. Thank you!
Awesome car for the price. Really good shape, responsiveness impressive. Colton was really flexible and communicative. Highly recommend even for daily driver. FYI his car is for sale, grab it before its gone. 👍🏼🙂
Adele and Chris are fantastic to communicate with. Chris gave us a thorough demo of the car that made us super comfortable driving it. And the car was a joy to experience. Highly recommend renting from Adele.
First time Turo user. Pickup and drop off was great! Highly recommend!
Fareed’s car is great. He personally delivered the car to my home address which was super helpful. We rented the car for a week and there were no issues with the car. Everything went smoothly. I highly recommend!
Emily is the best! Her Tesla was ideal for toting clients around town. Perfectly clean and super fun to drive. I’ve rented from Emily a few times and she is wonderful!!
Had a great experience renting this super fun car! The looks good, is fun to drive and gets great mileage! The owner was also friendly and laid back.
Owner is very good with Communication, had no problem finding and returning the car. Car is clean and reliable.
Adele and Chris are great! Their Tesla is great! I've rented it from them twice now on my trips to Austin and highly recommend renting from them. A+ experience all around!
The Jaguar was amazing! Mario was very easy to work with. Pickup and drop off were extremely easy. Would definitely rent from again.
The car is very good for my short trip. And very cheaper. May was very nice with me. And very flexible. I was a little bit late for the retourn and she was flexible. Thank you for that !
Tested the 2018 Model 3 Performance. Great car! Ryan delivered the vehicle and answered any question I had such as how best to charge or plan a trip. #easy
Excellent experience! Paul was a great host. The car was in perfect condition. Will definitely book again with Paul next time when I’m in Austin.
The best car to rent good on gas and great style . It was a bit pricey because I was under 25 but it was worth it definitely well rent again . Thanks
The entire process was a breeze and May was incredibly punctual. Car was clean and rather spacious actually. I am very happy I chose her car!
This was my first Turo experience and it was an excellent one. David’s Charger was a great car to rent. In addition to being a “Hemi”, it had all the goodies and was everything I hoped it would be. His directions on where to pickup the car were detailed and accurate. He kept me informed of all the rental requirements. It was a pleasure to rent from David and I highly recommend him if you have car rental needs in the Austin area.
just an awesome car and Aaron is an awesome person You would not be disappointed !
Josh was super flexible with us to make ends meet for our trip. His Stinger is the perfect combination of comfortable and sporty. The car was impeccably clean and was fully loaded with all the new tech you could imagine. Josh made our first experience using Turo a really good one. Will absolutely rent from him again when we return to Austin.
James was really easy to work with and his car was in great condition and very clean.
GT-R is a missile. Fantastic car that gets a lot of respect around town. It’s a tad loud in a good way so be ready to be noticed. Tyler was great.
Patrick was great! My flight landed about an hour early so I sent in a quick request to get the car an hour earlier than planned and Patrick was very quick to respond and approve that request, even at 6 in the morning. Would definitely recommend.
Penny the Prius was awesome! We had no problems our four days with her.
Renting May's Fiat was easy and convenient. For a tiny city car, it was a perfect choice for our budget.
This was a great deal. I would do this again next time I am in Austin.
Car was fantastic! Chris was great to talk to and deal was quick and easy. Highly recommend Chris and his GTR to anyone!
Isaac and Emily were incredibly easy to work with. Part of what made it such a pleasure in dealing with them was answering my wife’s and my endless questions, including reviewing video with questions that we had.
Wonderful vehicle and Dean was easy to communicate and figure everything out with.
Great time with Gregg’s Boxster. Pickup was flexible and easy. Car was in great shape for its age and ran like a dream. Great drive in the Hill Country with my dad.
