Great renter! Easy pickup and return at BWI. No issues! Would rent from again for sure
AWESOME!! Absolutely AWESOME! This was my first use of Turo and it was more than I could have ever hoped for. Working with Andrew to complete the rental transaction was great. There were some initial difficulties but Andrew was patient and helpful in providing me the support necessary to resolve the problems. A great person to deal with. As for the car. WOW! Not only was it a gorgeous car to look at, it was a wonderful car to drive! I haven't had this much fun with a car as I did this one! It is a crying shame so many car manufacturers are moving away from manual transmissions on the floor and to paddle shifters on the steering wheel. Personally, I feel they do not give you the same feel for the car a manual tranny does. I can only hope the other Turo sponsors are as Gold Star as Andrew. He made this a great first time experience. As for the car, I truly hope I get the opportunity to drive it again. WOW!
10/10 I cannot recommend Jamarr enough!! His car runs so incredibly smooth and he is incredibly kind and accommodating! The best of the best!!!
Allen was great. Really nice and flexible about car pickup and drop off. Car was really clean as well
This was our first Turo rental and it far surpassed our expectations! Rob is a wonderful host, super communicative and very friendly. The car listing was accurate, and the Mustang is an absolute beast! I already told Rob I will look for him again next time we visit Maryland.
Aaron was the best person to rent the car from I fee in love with that car it was great on gas and mileage. Aaron was a great guy to talk to and just be around. I will definitely rent from him again. He deserves 10 stars
Estelle’s made my first Turo experience great. She was right on time. Her Mini Cooper is in great condition and very clean.
5 stars and very happy. He was excellent and the vehicle was all that was expected. Thank you and I would recommend to all my friends family etc.
He was good with communication I was able to pick up the car early and return it early. Will definitely rent from him again
Excellent service; friendly, helpful, and provided precise instruction. Highly recommend to anyone.
Ankush was timely, communicative, and a real genuine dude. I appreciated his flexibility and how approachable he was. He’s a cool dude! Will definitely rent again.
It was truly a pleasure working with TeslaRosa. They made it simple and easy flying into BWI. Next time I come to Baltimore I’m hitting them up again!!!
Fatma is wonderful! We opted for airport pickup and they made it a breeze! Super friendly, great communication and was much more simple than traditional renting! Thank you!
Allen did everything in timely and professional manner made it very convenient for me and my wife thanks again.
