I had a great road trip… Im pregnant so I needed something with space and this was super great… The host was soooo sweet so had the car ready and clean for me and even had a nice goodie bag for my trip with snacks and water.. Also for this to be a suv it was GREAT on Gas… Specially during a time with high gas prices so I know she takes care of her car.. I definitely recommend booking with her for your Turo needs..

Airport was out of rental Lainie was an amazing host responded immediately and brought the Bronco to me within a reasonable amount of time clean and full of fuel. Even left me some money to get out of the garage (didn’t need it) If I’m in town again I’ll definitely be skipping the rental counter and contacting Lainie!

This was my first time utilizing Turo and I must say that it was an experience that I’ve not encountered with rental car services! The rental from Turo was priced very fair for a luxury vehicle… in fact, it was less money. So my experience renting through Turo was awesome. Bradley: the person who owed the vehicle was absolutely awesome and went above and beyond to ensure my experience was great. She was on time and even offered to help find local places in the area for me to experience. I won’t ever go back to the chain rental companies . She made this experience seamless! If you’re in the Charlotte area please utilize Bradley. I was apprehensive initially, but she was very reassuring of the process through her follow ups and help. Thanks Bradley!!!!

Won’t find this at any of the rental companies. Don’t hesitate to rent the vehicle. We will contact John next time we are in town.

The pick-up and drop-off at the airport was very timely. I did see some scrap markers, so after leaving the airport traffic ............. I took some pictures and sent to Quality Works. The gas tank was at 3/4 and I took a picture of that too. Quality had sent a text telling me about these items. It was a great experience and will TURO again. I would definitely rent an SUV from them again.

If you are in the Charlotte area, I strongly recommend you have Lainie as your host.She has a variety of cars to choose from. I particularly suggest you rent from her if you are a first timer to Turo. I joined in Hawaii and never used the service because I didn't feel comfortable or understand how helpful an owner could be. I have never felt more comfortable renting anything in my life than renting a car from Lainie. If there were a 6 star rating available I would give her that. Heck,100 stars for Lainie. I am not exaggerating. As a first timer I was a bit of a nuisance learning the ropes. Lainie helped me all the way from the beginning until the return. Renting from Turo is not a difficult thing to do but I am a little older and have been using rental cars for 50 years so I did need a little help since I was a one trick pony. A creature of habit so to speak.With Turo, you get to work with the person you rent from which in this case was a pleasure and way better than the incompetent people at the corporate desk. Lainie makes it simple but again I was a newbie. I will rent from her again when in the Charlotte area and use Turo again when traveling. She converted me from corporate rental companies..Hopefully there is a "Lainie" in all the cities I travel to. Although I won't need the same amount of attention and hand holding now that I understand the system [ thanks to Lainie ] I would sure like the same courtesy and personality she provides. Lainie goes the extra mile and so will the cars you get from her. Thanks Lainie for my new wonderful experience . See You in November when I return to CLT.

Volvo XC60 2014

Very affordable and nice car! This was perfect for a short trip in Charlotte. I would definitely rent this vehicle again. Justin is an incredible renter and provides such great instruction and pictures for picking up the car. I always get anxious when going into something I’ve never done before and paid for…but it was sooo easy to find and return the vehicle. Thank you for that! I will preface because I think it’s important, we only used one bar of gas and it cost $20 to fill up upon returning. Just an idea of what it could cost you, but of course the renter has no control over how much you drive and cost of gas. Lastly, this being an SUV, you can definitely feel the weight upon acceleration. I live in FL with no hills and drive an SUV but could totally feel the difference in acceleration because of how hilly Charlotte is. Just a little slower because of this, but no actual issues with the car. I just know some people have different comfort levels when it comes to these things. I really hope this vehicle is available when we return. I’ll be sure to rent again if it is. Highly recommended.

This was our first time using Turo. We couldn’t be happier with our experience. From the start, it was super simple and easy to confirm booking. Arranging pick up was in a convenient location. Next to the car. It was exactly as pictured, in pristine condition and clean. What a terrific ride for the week. I would recommend 100% to rent with Stephen. Fantastic experience, fraction of the price for a small car from the traditional rental companies and a luxury car instead. What a find!!

Omg you guys this SUV was perfect for our road trip! It was too big for the parking garages in New York no one had a problem parking us. It had room for my family and our luggage everything fitted perfectly. My husband says the ride was so smooth he's looking into purchasing this type of vehicle for our next car. Brelyn was available every time I asked a question before and even after the trip and allowed me to change my pick up time without an issue. Again thanks Alot you have an awesome car I'm surprised you don't just keep it all to yourself......haha!

Derwin was an excellent host. Even though this was my first time using Turo, everything went without a hitch. Getting and returning the car was easier than I expected. The only difference between renting through Turo and one of the main rental companies is having to take pictures of the vehicle when picking up and returning the vehicle. The only other thing I worried about was what I would do if the car broke down, but, luckily, that didn't happen since Derwin takes good care of the vehicle. The car was clean and well maintained.

Loved renting this beautiful smooth riding vehicle through James. It was an easy process to do and James was very responsive to any questions that O had during the rental process. Because of this pleasant experience I will be purchasing a Lexus at some point this year, but until then I won’t hesitate to rent from James again! Best rental car experience that I’ve ever had! I highly suggest to anyone looking to rent a vehicle to do so through James, because you won’t get this five star experience anywhere else in Charlotte.

I was able to ask questions about where to pick up the vehicle and got quick responses. He met us at the airport curb with the vehicle to pick it up and to drop it off. Couldn't be an easier way to rent a car at the airport for sure! This was much easier than the rental car counter. Will definitely rent this vehicle again next time we are in Charlotte.
