Charmed in Charlotte

It seems prescient that the city of Charlotte was originally established after a local gold discovery, and is now a prominent US banking city. Which is to say that Charlotte is full of treasures.

With fresh takes on Southern cuisine and a temperate climate, the Queen City is an ideal vacation destination for both relaxing in town and outdoor activities. Make time during your road trip or business trip to soak in the sights and, and enjoy your stay!

Charlotte favorites

Charlotte might not come off as a place for adrenaline junkies, but it’s full of opportunities for hair-raising thrills.

NASCAR Hall of Fame

You don’t have to be a diehard racing fan to enjoy hopping into the racing simulator or attempting the Pit Crew challenge. You can also see artifacts from big moments in NASCAR history.

US National Whitewater Center

This facility on the Catawba River was created as a training center for Olympic whitewater slalom race training, and is now also open to the public for wild rides, or just chilling on the 1,300 acres of forested land.

Charlotte Motor Speedway

This legendary 1.5-mile superspeedway is just north of town up Interstate 85, hosting several NASCAR events each year. Visit to take a tour, attend a concert, or try your hand at the NASCAR Racing Experience.

James provided exceptional communication, much better than any of the larger rental companies. It was my first time using Turo and we will absolutely use it again.

Very easy rental process. Smooth drive. And was quick and easy to extend the trip length. Will most definitely be renting from James' fleet again!

Tony was very accommodating and understanding with my last minute rental. Communication was great and he even let me move up my pick up time.
Trav L.- July 27, 2020
I had little knowledge of Turo prior to the completion of my vehicle rental; therefore, I kept my expectation at a reasonable level - a level similar to renting a vehicle through a national rental car agency. I was surprised and very pleased with the quality of service Tony delivered. This being my first vehicle rental through Turo, Tony sent timely communications which made the process from vehicle pick-up to drop-off simple and safe. When I had a question, I sent messages to Tony, and he responded within a matter of minutes. The vehicle I rented was a BMW 4 Series 2018. It is in excellent condition, clean, and well kept. I own a BMW and keep my vehicle serviced as it proves me and my family a high degree of trustworthiness. The vehicle I rented from Tony felt brand-new and trustworthy. I appreciate how important I felt as a customer of Tony's. Many Thanks, Robert

Everything was perfect! Super smooth and fast checkout and checkin. Very efficient, so much faster (and less expensive) than a rental counter. The Renegade was beautiful and exceeded our expectations. Great communication throughout the process. I would definitely rent from Lainie again if we are ever in the Charlotte area!

The car was amazing, this was my first time in an EV and I really felt comfortable and Antoinne was great communicator and did the whole VIP tutorial. I am really happy he took the time to show me everything and he was available for all my questions. I thought about renting the Tesla but I wanted something new and reasonably priced. I admit, I was a bit nervous as a first time Turo guest but I am glad I rented this one. I definitely recommend him a host and the you definitely have to drive this car/truck. It’s a like a large sedan that sits higher. All I know is that it was a ton of fun and fit my family with no problem. Bonus that I looked too cute cruising around Charlotte! All the head turns checking this baby out!

I can’t say enough about my first Turo experience and my host, Brandon. This service exceeded my expectations. Brandon was an excellent host, quickly and patiently responding to all of my inquiries and being very prompt at delivery and drop off. The vehicle was also fun to drive and in immaculate condition. The convenience of meeting Brandon and the airport was so much easier than dealing with the usual car rental hassle. I will definitely be contacting Brandon again the next time I am in Charlotte .

Janes was a pleasure to deal with super easy pick up and drop off. I had 2 other hosts cancel my reservations last minute, so I was glad to have gotten a replacement for my trip. Vehicle drove nicely, smooth and was good on gas. Little smaller than I thought it would be from the pics, but that was just my error in not being familiar with the vehicle type. I would have no problem renting James’s Lexus again.

George is so accommodating , he drops the car off at the airport for you and picks it up from the terminal on time. Probably the best experience in car renting we’ve ever had. There was no problems what so ever the truck was fantastic and we couldn’t ask for a better person to rent from. Recommend renter for anybody in need in Charlotte.

This Jeep was perfect for my family's vacation trip. We had a blast driving through the Appalachians, and the Jeep met our every need. It's clean, well maintained, and a blast to drive! Jordan was a great host, communicative, and even offered car seats for the kids. He helpfully allowed us to extend our trip at the last minute when our flight was cancelled. We would definitely want to rent this again when in the area!

This is my second time renting one of Patrick's vehicles. You can't ask for a better Turo host. He is conveniently near me, which is nice. But moreover, just like the first time, Patrick provided a smooth and professional transaction, not to mention the vehicle (Mazda) was clean, inside and out. Also, I like that he quickly responds to any concerns/questions I may have. Thanks again, Patrick!

Traveled with my wife, two daughters, and two grandparents for a vacation to the hills; this was the perfect vehicle for our trip! Plenty of room, very clean, easy to drive (especially with the extra large rear view mirror), and actually got about 20mpg! (Not that we rented a Suburban for the economy, but I was pleasantly surprised…) Pickup and drop off was simple and Paul communicated very well the entire trip. This was a great Turo experience!

Antoinne was amazingly patient and flexible with me during my entire reservation. Just a pure professional, I wasn’t sure if I wanted to drive an electrical car for the first time, but he walked me through everything. Pick up at the airport was seamless, even better than black car service I usually take when I travel. I strongly recommend getting the prepaid charging and cleaning as it saved me a lot of time getting back to the airport. I am glad the charging cable came with the car. I highly recommend Antoinne to anyone and the Electric Car experience was really great!

Tesla Model X 2016

Great Model X. Looks almost new. Very clean. The only 2 caveats are 1) the range of this Model X seems to be around 225 miles so unless you have access to over night level 2 charging you will depend on Superchargers. Fortunately we were staying in South Charlotte near one. 2) we had to take a free shuttle bus from the airport to a special parking garage in order to pick it up at airport. We did get a little lost but eventually we found it. Chris was patient and helped us. He has excellent communication skills.

Jeep Wrangler 2018

Detrick's Rubicon is a very nice ride and also very comfortable for what is considered to be an off-road vehicle. The suspension is well built and absorbed any bump or pot hole we encountered The exterior was very clean as well as the interior which smelled really good. This was my first time using Toro and Detrick was a 10 star host in my opinion. Unfortunately, I can only give him 5 stars. He was very responsive and attentive to whatever I may have needed to make renting his Jeep the best possible experience. He even gave my fiancé and I a ride to pick up my semi truck from the shop in town after we ended our trip. We couldn't of asked for more in a host. If we're ever in the Charlotte area again and in need of a car, Detrick will be our first and probably only choice for renting vehicles. Great job Detrick! We wish you all the success!
