Cincinnati exudes curiosity and continues to make a splash along the banks of the Ohio River. The Queen City of the West is known for its photo-worthy streets, famed BBQ and chili, and revitalized Over-the-Rhine neighborhood.
When you’re satisfied exploring the up-and-coming coffee bars, boho art cafes, mouth-watering restaurants, and microbreweries, take your Cincinnati rental car alternative out of town for even more fun and adventurous excursions.
Secretly bursting at the seams with rich local culture and a flourishing arts and brewery scene, Cincinnati’s trendy post-industrial vibe is capturing hearts everywhere.
For eye-popping panoramic views of Queen City, the iconic Carew Tower looks over downtown Cincinnati with shops, restaurants, and an observation deck on the 49th story.
Head toward Over-the-Rhine in your <a href="/us/en/car-rental/united-states">Cincinnati car rental alternative</a> and enjoy a casual lunch, a scoop of Dojo Gelato, or a sip of craft beer after browsing the cute shops and stalls at Findlay Market.
A short 25-minute drive from downtown Cincinnati, thrill-seekers will love spending a day at King’s Island. Ride the world’s longest wooden roller coaster and then try the inverted roller coaster, the Banshee.

Thanks to Cincinnati’s central location, it’s easy to visit neighboring urban areas or to explore the surrounding countryside, small towns, and abundant forests for a day trip or weekend getaway.
Spoil yourself with rocky river canyons, dense forests, and crystal clear creeks in John Bryan State Park or Clifton Gorge State Nature Preserve, then refuel at the Clifton Mill, a classic American diner, just outside of Yellow Springs.
Pack some snacks and head to the Pyramid Hill Sculpture Park in your Cincinnati car rental alternative. Rain or shine, gain some creative inspiration or simply enjoy a relaxing day trip away from Queen City.
A quick half-hour drive from Cincinnati brings you to the historic and quiet Big Bone Lick State Park, with plenty of wildlife, flora, and history. Take your time and observe the protected bison on a day trip or turn your stay into a camping weekend.
Excellent host! He was very accommodating when I needed to extend my rental several times with no problem. The car still ran smoothly through the winter weather we’ve been getting lately. I highly recommend you rent from him and his lovely wife!
The car experience was great renting Fred's 2017 Toyota Corolla! My wife and I thought it was a scam until my nephew said he used it before and it's legit. Definitely will be using turo app again to rent a car and safe money instead of going to Budget or Enterprise.
Brian is excellent to work with. He was very quick on responding each and every time I needed to extend the time (and there were many, as I was going day-to-day a lot of the time.) I will definitely look for him in the future when I need to rent a car!
Such a pleasure to drive, we really enjoyed it and Aaron was communicative and easy to work with. Will be renting from him again!
Great car, great ride. The owner is awesome as well, I know I’ll be booking again in the future.
Brian was hassle-free, responsive, and flexible. Left some water and hand sanitizer in the car which I thought was a nice touch. Car itself was pleasant and clean.
This was a great renting experience! The car ran real good no issues! Brian was very helpful and communicated well! Would rent again when coming back to Cincinnati!
Check in was easy, rate was affordable and accommodating, had a lot of luggage but Fred's Camry took good care of it. Gas mileage was AWESOME! Vehicle was safe and well serviced. Highly recommend.
Great car! Host was friendly and responsive. Contactless pick up was available as well
Loved the car, the interior is spotless and as expected the ride is silver smooth with tremendous pickup and handling for some highway driving or side roads. Essenam is gracious and easy to work with - handled late drop off worn ease. She’s a pro.
It was the first time I’d used Turo. First time I have driven a Tesla and worked with Aaron. Things could not have gone better!! From beginning to end the experience was ideal. The point of the trip was sight-seeing in Vermont. The Tesla autopilot was perfect for such an activity. I had never considered owning a Tesla till now. The performance, comfort and ease of use is unparalleled. It’s a completely different driving experience and we loved it. There were three of us on the trip which included my 11yr old daughter. The drive was 15hrs plus charge time. The Tesla made it feel like fun. Working with Aaron and Turo, was easy. The rent on the vehicle was very reasonable. I’d rather work with Aaron and Turo than the big name car rental peeps every time!!
The Tesla Model S and Model X are really impressive. By far the most beautiful electric car with so many features... I love it 🙂 I got the Model S on rental and it's performance is unbelievable... Thank you so much for your wonderful service!
First time using Turo. Rented a Tesla from Aaron in Cincinnati. He was informative and very kind as he answered all my questions. Excellent experience!
Fantastic! I rented this Model 3 for a little "family fun time" over the Thanksgiving 2020 holiday. The car was amazing and so was Aaron's kind and professional service. I have been so impressed by this whole concept I have already recommended it to colleagues, family, and friends. I look forward to borrowing one of Aaron's Teslas in the future for fun memories and no regrets.
Brandon was an excellent to work with, he was very friendly and checked in on me regularly. He really impressed me because I had the misfortune of another vehicle jerking into me and causing minor cosmetic damage to the rear corner of his vehicle. When I told him of this, the 1st thing he asked was if everyone was okay. I felt pretty bad about what happened, but Brandon is so awesome and understanding. I know it must have been frustrating for him, but he has directed absolutely none of it at me and has been nothing but friendly as we work to resolve it. I will definitely be reaching out to him if I need a rental in the Cincinnati area again... and if he doesn't think I'm bad luck lol XD. Thanks Brandon.
What a great car, and what a great experience! Had a blast taking the car down to see my sister- it was such a pleasant change from anything at enterprise! M3s V8 revs to sonorous levels, and SMG transmission was legitimately fun! Owner was timely at drop off and very open and communicative the entire trip. I would definitely rent from him again, and will never use a regular rental again!!
Rodney is a breeze to deal with, his vehicles are immaculate, easy and fun to drive. Will always deal with him on my trips north.
I highly recommend renting from Rodney. His communication was on point, the car was perfect! I didn't want to give it back. I had no issues!
My second trip with Aaron in the last year, and it was the same 5-star trip - simple and easy rental process, amazing car, great experience for my son's 25th birthday, and a gracious, communicative host. Thanks, Aaron!
Great car and it was fun to drive. It was easy to work with Aaron. He was helpful and I would definitely rent from him again.
This guy is great. Trip took longer than expected and he let me keep going. Would recommend renting from him
Extremely happy with my experience! This was my first rental on Turo. I’ve been considering buying a Tesla and was very on the fence. I test drove one at the dealership but that doesn’t give you much of a chance to get familiar with the car. I feel a Tesla is not a typical car purchase. It is a very big leap! Aaron was great and so was his Model 3! I really enjoyed it and would certainly rent again! Thank you 🙂
Nice car, and got great mileage, ran well. A little tight to get in and out of (I'm 6'2"), but comfortable inside. Nicely equipped with GPS and Bluetooth. Good value for the price and Fred was very accommodating and easy to deal with.
Great car for traveling needs! Kori was great to rent from and made the process SUPER easy! Will definitely rent from him again when I return to Cincinnati!
My first rental with Turo and my first time driving a Tesla - a birthday gift from my family - and it couldn't have been more rewarding and fun. The Turo page and app are easy to use and navigate, and once the trip was booked, Aaron communicated with me quickly and clearly. Pickup and drop off went smoothly. The trip was as amazing as the car, and Aaron was easy-to-reach, super friendly, responsive, and accommodating. Thanks for the great experience!
Car was comfortable and reliable. Pickup and drop off were easy and Fred was responsive.
Great car and service. The model s with the ludicrous package was an unbelievable performance car that every car enthusiast must experience. Once you drive it you will understand the excitement around the Tesla brand.
Clean and safe car with a full tank when we picked it up. It was a quick and easy experience, and Adeen provides very friendly service.
I had a great experience with this car! The drop off service was excellent. I definitely will be booking again thanks Rodney for being convenient & on time!
The service was excellent! The car was great, no complaints I will be booking in the near future!
Perfect host and car for the weekend ❤️He went above and beyond to keep me satisfied
Fred was great. Needed to extend the trip multiple times and he understood and made it happen.
Very sweet & helpful. Car drives smooth & was extremely clean.. Definitely will book again.
2nd time renting and It was great , good on gas reliable and Gbenga respond on time and very helpful . Thank you
Amazing and seem less all around. Car was perfect and the rental process was the easiest I’ve ever had. The only bad thing about this...it makes you want to buy one! Aaron was great and sent info about the vehicle and how to operate it prior to the rental. Top class all around.
4th rental from Aaron. Pickup and drop off is always seamless and the car's always super clean. Great time and great stares lol
Amazing experience—Aaron is personable and responsive. The car is beautiful and super fun. Thanks for making my husband’s birthday special!
I love this car & the owner was super nice and communication was amazing!
First time using Turo and enjoyed the experience. Aaron was great to work with and the car was clean and exactly as described. Thanks!
Fred was amazing! He allowed me to pick up the car early so I could go care for my family! That meant the world to us! Thank you Fred!!
Aaron was an amazing host, my trip went perfectly. Would highly recommend him if you plan on renting a car!!
Rodney is an excellent guy! The Porsche was tip top and super fun to drive! Best rental I’ve ever had!
Had a mixup at the beginning with cars and he was very accommodating and helped get me into another one. Communicated very efficiently and made this experience easy. Great trip!
Outstanding host with excellent communication. The car was ready on time, very clean inside and out. A superb vehicle that drives very smoothly received many compliments. Made my night a success. Look forward to renting again!
Great, reliable car. Was very accommodating when I needed to extend the trip multiple times. Thanks, Fred!
A great car, clean, and easy pickup. Although it was disclosed and photos shared prior to confirming, there were a few more dings and scratches than expected (hard to see in the photos and honestly the shiny finish hides them even in person, so not a big deal). Would definitely rent again.
Michael made this trip so easy for me! The car is great, and like another review I read I’m pretty sure I’ve finally got my mind set to what my next car will be since I’ve been in the market. Not only was Michaels car clean and perfect, he was so nice and accommodating and even helped my family choose some destinations for our vacation!
First time in a Tesla and it was an awesome experience!! The car was super clean and the rental process with Aaron was perfect. Immediate replies and super helpful!
Deluxe Rentals is great! Amazing car and great communication. I’ll definitely be using them again.
Rodney was great to deal with and flexible in extending my trip a few times. Would gladly rent again.
Rodney was very kind and accommodating. The car was exactly as described. Pick up and drop off were a breeze. Highly recommend this rental. Car is incredibly fun to drive and made for a relaxing evening getting some fresh air with the top down.
Incredible host! Will rent again! The car was well kept and extremely clean.
Gautam was very helpful and very nice. I had a family emergency and he was even very understanding of me have to depart early due to an emergency. The car is a great car also and very good on gas and very clean. I wouldn’t mind renting again if I’m ever in town.
Absolute dream of a car and Aaron made the transaction seamless! If you are thinking of a Tesla I encourage renting one first. You will be hooked and not want to turn the car back in. The car was exceptional and very clean. The car did not give us one moment of trouble and we had it 4 days. Worth every cent spent for sure. Surprise someone with a Tesla experience, it is a great gift idea. I recommend 110%. Have fun and thank you Aaron for a memorable weekend. Mrs. B. & son.
Adeen is a great guy to rent from: courteous, fast response, & his car was beautifully kept and well-maintained - would use him again!
Fred is over and beyond when it comes to making the renter happy if i could leave 10 star I would i highly recommend ALL his cars! response very quickly to.
Awesome car! Very easy to deal with. Will rent from Aaron again the next time I’m in town!
Matthew is very easy to work with and took his time explaining every detail about the car to make me feel comfortable before my trip! The car drove exceptionally well, and absolutely changes the way you drive. Thank you again!
Aaron was very easy to communicate with and the car was incredible! Will definitely rent again!
Fred has been an amazing host too both of our trips with both of his cars. both are very clean an roomy an perfect for our travelling needs. love doing business with Fred an will continue to book with him in the future!
This is my 2nd time renting from Aaron, he's got a great fleet of cars that he takes excellent care of. Both times the car has been ready when I arrived, clean, and fully charged. 100% recommend renting from him, plus the experience of a Tesla is one that shouldn't be missed!
This was my first experience with TURO and Aaron made it an excellent experience. Communication was great, car was charged up, car was clean and all my questions were answered so I was comfortable with the car. If you are even thinking about booking one of Aaron’s cars, go ahead and book it! What are you waiting for? I am looking forward to renting in the future.
Mr Fred was quick and responsive to any concerns or questions. I will gladly utilize his services again.
Mike made pickup and return very easy for me. The car was very clean and a great ride. Will definitely rent from him again
great car and jordana was very easy to communicate with. will definitely consider renting with her again
Will definitely rent again from Brian. Prompt courteous communication and car is great on gas.
