Great person & hospitality. Vehicle drives smoove and has a nice quiet roar to it that fits the vehicle. Comfortable and Luxury interior, navigation & button controls easy to operate. To top it off it’s a cool lookin car, everyone in Baltimore lookin for a car rental get this one!
Good people, clean car. Pickup and drop off was convenient. This is my 3rd rental, I will rent again.
Cameron was extremely accomodating our entire trip! Due to weather, some travel plans changed and he made every effort to accomodate our needs and ensure we were taken care of! Nice little "welcoming" touches in the vehicle as well! Next time I come back, I will rent from Cameron.
Mohsin is very responsive, he answered every question I had very quickly, from the time I started looking for a vehicle, prior to me actually reserving the vehicle, and even once I had the vehicle. He continued to be very responsive even after the trip, car was great, and definitely would rent again!
Esse was able to make the rental process a success during inclement weather. Very responsive and flexible. The car was extremely nice and drove like a dream even in the poor weather conditions. My family and I felt very safe. Recommend this
Great renter. Clear car, extremely helpful, and very communicative. 5/5 stars. Would absolutely rent again.
Ryan is a fantastic host and his model 3 is an amazing car. Picking this for a long (2500+ mile) road trip with the wife was perfect and we had a fabulous time. Also Ryan’s communications were excellent and he made sure I was very clear about supercharging costs and ez pass tolls. It was also my first time driving a Tesla so he helped me get used to the single pedal driving and regenerative brakes. All in all a fantastic experience.
Ride was perfect! Practically brand new car. Smooth drive, updated car accessories for navigation & Bluetooth music, etc. I will definitely rent again 👍🏾
It’s an easy process, owner of car was communicative and punctual. Car is great on gas and easy to use. Would recommend !
Definitely recommend Claude & this car. PHENOMENAL on gas. Great for quick uturns, if you're visiting Baltimore this will be incredibly helpful. Flew in from BWI. Got to car via free & fast shuttle. A no contact exchange. Claude was easy to communicate with for the trip and allowed me to extend my rental when my trip plans changed. Also was accommodating when I arrived on a later flight than planned. Car was more spacious inside than it appeared. Just FYI, if using Bluetooth in car, it has a safety where you can't connect unless the car is stopped. When stopped all the options etc will appear.
Great Great Great love the car everything was what it say well defined get this vehicle again thank you so much
Burke was very friendly and informative. His Tesla Model 3 was super cool and worked great for our trip. Super quick charging & super responsive. Burke also accomdated two changes to our trip lengths with no issues. Highly recommend Burke.
This host is very quick if you need a ride ASAP. They were efficient, clean, and diligent with their instructions. Definitely be sure to rent with Niecy!!
what can be better than driving new car for a great price on bundle with great owner?nothing))thanks,Esse
Amazing car! V8. Stick Shift. All wheel drive. Convertible. It's a must drive! Can't wait to drive it again.
This will always be my go to vehicle when I’m in the area Stephen is renting it! A+ Communication A+ Pick up & drop off location/routine A+ Jaguar ride He went above and beyond to make my experience perfect! It was a pleasure the whole time! Thanks Stephen!
He is the absolute best host. Patient and understanding and I definitely recommend him for anyone to rent a car from him!! Thanks a million!!
I rented the 2020 Dodge Challenger Red-eye Widebody Hellcat. Best rental ever! Not only did this fulfill a bucket list item for me, it also showed me that it's possible to get amazing customer service on Turo. I've rented many cars from Turo and this was my best experience by far. Bashar had the car ready on time, he was very responsive to my questions, the car was immaculate, he let me test out the full potential of this car and the car drove perfectly! Also wanted to mention something else about this host, Bashar. He drove 6 HOURS (3 each way) to resolve a misunderstanding we had. Who does that? Amazing. If you ever want to rent one of the fastest cars in the world, rent Bashar's Red-eye Widebody Hellcat!! Thanks again Bashar!
Esse was a fantastic host, pickup and drop off at the airport was extremely easy. Will be booking again!
Ken was a great host! The car was awesome and he made sure my trip was a success! I'll gladly rent with him again.
Incredible car! Best drive of my life and I have driven some fast cars, ultimate street car. Max is really cool as well. total car guy. Great experience.
Such a great rental... fantastic car. Yehuda’s communication was great before and during the rental. I would highly recommend!
Amazing host easy going and easy to work with, will be working with him again soon!!
This was the most hassle free car rental experience I've ever had. The car drives great! Pick up/return was convenient as host dropped off and picked up at the terminal. Definitely recommend!
Ryan went above and beyond renting me his Model 3. He was responsive and communicative every step of the way, worked with me on any questions or concerns I had, and even met up with me at the end of the trip to let me play with the Summon feature of his car. (I hadn’t gotten to see it in person yet). Ryan’s Model 3 was clean and in great condition and is one of my favorite cars on the road. Thanks for a great weekend !
AWESOME & PROFESSIONAL HOST He responds very timely to messages or calls. Car ran great and was clean. Host was very pleasant to deal with and made the experience totally easy. Pick up and drop off were both very efficient. Coming back in 2 months, will definitely try to use same host.
Esse was very professional and the car was super clean. The transfer went very smooth. We will be renting from him again.
Sean’s Maserati made all my dreams come true! The most exciting car I have ever rented
Car was easy to find/access, communication was great between Claude & I the entire trip.
This car is a very well-maintained modern classic. Kostia was great to work with, very good communication. I would happily rent again the next time I'm in the area.
Great all around guy. He made my first rental a pleasant one. Thanks alot Greg.
Oscar and his partner were patient and reliable. The vehicle was in immaculate condition with extra charging cords that I got a lot of use out of. If you're looking for a rental under these renters, have no second thoughts! Couldn't have asked for a better or more seamless trip thanks to these guys
This is the second time renting this car from David. Great car as always great communication. Unfortunately this time was only able to rent it for a day but David did not mind. Thanks!! Till next time I'm in town I will for sure rent this car again.
Nickcaro was very helpful, had snacks and he was extremely good at communicating with me throughout my trip I’ll definitely recommend him to you guys 5 star service
Everything went smoothly. It was my first time using Turo and I will definitely be using Colin anytime I come to Baltimore. Thanks again!!
Charles provided everything necessary for a smooth rental experience, would definitely rent from Charles again.
Car drove well, great on gas and you can tell it’s well maintained. Thomas’s responses were quick and i didn’t have any issues. Would definitely rent this car again!
Turo hosts could learn a lot from Max! Had a scheduled trip with his STI, which was unfortunately cut short due to unforeseen issues. Max was extremely accommodating and worked with me and Turo to get me reimbursed. Communication was A+. I'll rent from Max again for sure.
Great car! Never any issues and awesome host. I’ve rented the vehicle about 4 times and every time is a great experience! Highly recommend
Oscar was great and his car was perfect. Clean, comfortable, reliable and great gas mileage. He was patient with us in our return and that was greatly appreciated. I would definitely rent with him again.
Every aspect of the experience was outstanding. Possibly my best Turo experience to date. The owner was professional, courteous, and a class action. He was also flexible and availed himself whenever I needed. The car was amazing. It has a short shifter and a modified exhaust, which added to the thrill of the ride. Highly recommend both the car and the host.
Emmaus provided the perfect experience with an exciting Mercedes 550 super clean on the inside and very nice car exterior. Price was very reasonable for such high luxury experience
Best way to see the countryside - in a convertible mustang! Car was great - rental was convenient- will do it again!
Very easy renting process Cool Ride Nice guy Made my granddaughter's birthday even more special (favorite car) Definitely will rent again!
I rent this car every time I visit the DC area, and I love it! The owner is always so great with communication and works with me on pickup/dropoff. Highly recommend.
The car was as expected. Pick up was a breeze and the host was very accommodating and responsive. It was nice that they delivered it to the airport. I will definitely rent from them again.
My first time renting a car that I have to pickup at a airport lot. Wasn't sure about it but it turned out to be very easy . Hop on the free shuttle to the lot five minutes away and enter code to get the keys. Sure beats the rental counter at a traditional car rental. Host also communicated well and made this first experience very smooth.
Mike gave very specific instructions which were easy to follow on returning the car. The rental experience was superb and the vehicle, with it’s updated featured made driving a breeze. I would rent again
Esther has truly earned her reputation as an All-Star host! She communicated clearly and made sure we found the car without problems. Check-in was very simple. Will definitely keep her in mind if I ever need to rent a car in MD again.
Derwin is awesome. Clean car and in great shape. Prompt service! Left a bag in his car and he sent to me!!! An honest and cool cat. Will always rent from him when in Baltimore.
Allen was great! Once we connected, he was on top of ensuring that I was able to rent his car even though it was a bit late in the evening. This was my first time using Turo and was not really sure how this all worked. Allen was patient with me and he even taught me how to fully use the Turo App! I would recommend if you are in the Baltimore/DC area, give Allen a try! The car was super clean and was actually delivered an hour ahead of schedule.!!!
Rashard was great and flexible with our schedule. The car drove really nice and was in excellent condition. I would rent from him again anytime I visit Baltimore.
This was my first time coming to Baltimore since I transferred from Loyola university. Clod provided excellent service upon my return and visitation. The car was in superb condition, internally and externally. I have family now living in Baltimore and this will definitely not be my last time renting from Claude. Thanks again!
Very smooth painless experience. Certainly going to be a go to for renting a car in the Baltimore area.
I couldn't be happier than I was with this rental experience. Arkush was extremely flexible and worked with me. Best communication ever! Car had the E-ZPass in there which he said we could use. Will DEFINITELY rent from Arkush again :-)
Great and super easy experience. So much better than going through a rental company. Car was clean and Arslan was punctual and courteous. Highly recommend!
Very detailed instructions, makes it easy to pick up and drop off in a place I've never been. Clean, clean car inside and out.
Ankush picked me up, was very easy to work with, his car ran great, all and all he was fantastic.
I must admit I was hesitant to rent due to no reviews but from start to finish my experience was great! Delivery to the airport, he even left money so I could get out the garage (I left the change in there for ya). He was very communicative and was understanding that I was running late due to traffic! I’ll definitely use again!!!
Siarhei was very informative and made my first Turo experience hassle free and easy. Communication was tops! The car was very clean, reliable, and spacious. Airport location was super convenient. Great value.
Shanya was super flexible and helpful. Seriously, she went the extra mile to make my trip awesome.
Great car, good communication, very good price! I would recommend Liberated for anyone, who is looking for a great car and affordability!
Mike is the best choice while using Turo. The process was easy and good communication.
Great! Communication is easy directions to follow..The car drove well. Definitely would recommend.
From start to finish everything was on point!! Definitely will be looking to rent again!!
Mike is friendly and very helpful. He was prompt to respond and his car is in good condition.
Max is a Really Nice and Chill Guy i Surely enjoyed the ride so much would want to keep renting with him again for sure highly recommend Him !
Burke was a fantastic host - extremely professional and prompt, went out of his way to ensure everything was smooth and convenient. Will be checking for this car again next time we’re in the area. Thanks for a great experience Burke!
Fun car, personal service, no-worries. Samuel’s jazzy mini-cooper was pristine on the inside and gleaming on the outside. He walked me through the basics and pointed out all the bells and whistles. The airport drop-off really made the whole experience personal. So different from your average rental car counter experience. In addition to a great ride for vacation, I will use what I learned about Minis when I go car shopping soon. Won’t ever settle for a 10 minute drive with a salesman before making that big purchase! Thanks Sam. Thanks Turo. I’ll be back!
Really nice car! Comfortable ride! Dealings with Kenyon were smooth & seamless! I've had this app for a few years now (dating back to when it was still known as "Relay Rides") but, this was my first time deciding to finally give it a shot and actually use it considering I was pretty comfortable with a rental company that over time, became my go-to. Also... Support local over corporate when possible. Having said all of that... I appreciate Kenyon blessing me with a quality first time experience. The next time I need a rental, I will definitely be using this app again. And I'll be back for this car too!...So, hopefully none of you will have it when I need it Ha! Although, I guess I would understand.
