As one of the most diverse cities in the country, Houston has a lot to offer on many fronts, including fantastic food from every corner of the world, enthralling museums, and beautiful outdoor spaces where you can do everything — enjoy a movie or settle into an al fresco reading room.
Make your way through one of the most exciting cities in Texas in your Houston airport car rental alternative, and also bask in the scenery of the nearby Gulf of Mexico and Texas Hill Country.
Houston is chock full of well designed green spaces and truly mind-blowing eats, so take your Houston car rental alternative out to sample these gems.
This 160-acre park is an impressive respite from the bustling city, and is a beautiful place to rent boats or bikes. You can also tour and see shows in the strange, awesome underground cistern.
Crawfish is no joke in this Gulf-side town. You can’t go wrong with the classic table-top spread with corn cobs, but don’t miss the spicy Viet-Cajun style unique to Houston.
At the Space Center, you can not only see a large collection of moon rocks and spaceship exhibits, you can also tour NASA facilities where astronauts train.

Only an hour out of the city in your Houston car rental, Galveston is the hot beach spot where locals revel in long seaside days with great BBQ, and even horseback riding.
Known for its rocking live music scene, it’s worth the three-hour drive in your Houston car rental alternative to get your dose of Austin weird, and some killer swimming holes.
In less than an hour in your Houston car rental, you can be hiking or biking in nature at this state park. It’s also home to an observatory where you can stargaze on clear nights.
Diego was extremely nice and accommodating. His car is super clean, smooth driving, and great on gas.
MRS MAble is a WONDERFUL HOST I fell in love with the car I rent it 3 times already such a gas saver
Zoheb's car was everything we wanted. It was fast, clean, and comfortable. Zoheb was super easy to work with and even made some adjustments to make our return easier. Communication with Zoheb was great and he will be our go to guy for all of our trips to the Houston metro. We dropped the top and cruised down Seawall in Galveston. Our trip could not have been better. Thank you Zoheb!
Casey was a great host and he would definitely be the first guy I’d hunt down to rent his leaf again if in the area. Great car - as a Nissan Leaf owner myself I appreciated being able to drive emission free while away from home.
Enjoyed my rental and would definitely rent with them again. Thank you!
Alex was awesome and definitely will be renting from him again!
Thank you daniel for such a smooth and easy rental. I really really enjoyed your car!
We enjoyed our day in Jenna’s Tesla! Soo smooth, we’ll be renting again soon!
George is a really great, easy going host who is more than willing to help out, even after giving you the car. The car is in great condition.
I’ve used Turo a few times before and this experience was by far the best. Pick up and drop off was a breeze. Walid communicated and responded within minutes and was always friendly. I had to extend my rental a few times and he approved/confirmed within minutes as well. I really enjoyed driving the vehicle. Very clean and reliable. If I ever need to use Turo in the future, he will be my first choice always. Highly recommended!
Magnificent car, excellent service and great guy! I will rent from Sycario again.
Fast responses. Clear communication. Convenient and flexible pickup and return of rental. Would rent from again and recommend others to as well.
Latosha was amazing. She dropped the car off at the airport with no problem finding us. Very punctual.
Great experience Joshua was very nice and detailed throughout the trip I recommend him to anybody and his ride is super nice
Car was great trip went well, and understood when that I was going to be a little late due to weather and traffic but I end up being on time. I would rent from him again if I needed to.
Diana is a great host, anytime I need to use her vehicle she always lets me use it!!! Thank u D
Turo markets itself as renting from everyday people. Which is cool but people can run late, have cars that have mechanical issues. This is more of a company and it feels very professional. I liked that.
Exceptional service and a perfect car that drives as perfectly as it looks. Thank you!!!
Quick, great communication. Awesome car. Great sound system. Super clean
i will be renting from Madhu again and also recommending her to future renters. sweet and amazing people, who came through when we first landed, from the airport
Had a great trip in this car! Zack was excellent with customer service and communication. Car was a blast to drive.
Absolutely awesome experience renting from car wow! Easy pickup and return. The car was amazing. Definitely going to buy a Tesla.
Travon is a great host and his vehicle was impeccable. It was very well detailed and extremely clean. This contributed to a pleasurable ride. I would highly recommend his service.
Very friendly and helpful host, car was perfect for what we wanted for a few days in Houston.
First time Turo user and what a wonderful experience it was. The car performed beautifully. The sound of that large V8 is second to none. The transmission shifted like smooth as butter. As per Dwayne; just an awesome, friendly, down to earth kind of guy. I highly recommend this rental. You will not be disappointed.
Very easy to work with! We will see you again Papa!!
Robert is great to rent from and his little beauty Beetle Lulu made it even better. Would definitely rent again.
Had to book up with Michelle late and was surprised to get the car at such a short notice. The car is immaculate and has CarPlay. My 150 mile trip took under $10 in fuel!
This was my first time using the Turo app and Sachin was very helpful. I could unlock the car with the Tesla app so we didn't even have to meet. It was a pretty cool experience!
Veronica has great communication throughout the entire trip. I would definitely rent from her again!
Sycario is a cool dude and he made my experience awesome I will rent from him again in the future

Very good host. Clean car. Patient. Easy drop off and pick-up. Thank you
Thanks George. You were very nice and this car is really cute. :)
The ac in the Sonata wasn’t working when I arrived to pick it up. I ended up calling Turo to have a car switch.l to the Honda Civic. Good car if you need it to get around. Mark was helpful.
Great person to rent from! Everything went smooth from start to finish!
Edgar was great as always, flexible and accommodating! His car is amazing!
Jamal was an AMAZING host! The car was clean, great on gas , and very luxurious. Thanks so much for your flexibility and great communication!
Ziya was a great host. He picked us up from the airport on time, was friendly, and explained everything very clearly. When we went to Austin, we noticed the tires were looking a bit worn. We called Ziya and he and his brother spoke with the mechanic and paid for the tires to be changed that day. Great customer service. Would recommend.
Great host! Was there to meet and was a very effective communicator. Car was dependable And great on gas!
Very happy with Victoria! Sweet Mini that is kept in very good condition.
It was a pleasure to drive this car. Thank you , Daniel!

Ziya’s car was great for my 3 week trip. I was about to get around the city with ease. The car has good mileage so I didn’t have to fill up much. Would rent from again.

The host is very friendly and everything went smooth. Good car. Nice ride.

Daniel was an outstanding host and I would definitely book with him again when I come back to Houston
Mark always reply back within an hour of me changing my trip! Nice guy
First time and I loved it! Never using airport car rental when traveling again! I felt like I borrowed a family member’s car! Zohrin was such a pleasure and helped explain the process. I felt bad because I had an early 5am flight but he was right there!
This car is in perfect condition and the owner was great to work with! Would def rent again
David had great customer service from Start to Finish, and great Communication
We had a few problems with the car that were beyond our control “flat tire” “no AC” etc, but Tree was quick to follow up with any of our questions and concerns and he took care of us. Would definitely rent from him again!
Great host made pick up and drop off easy. Loved the Nissan Leaf, great way to try an electric car at a great price!
Needed a car while mine was getting detailed, couldn't have been an easier process, they dropped the car off at my office, and picked it up from the valet at my home.
Car was clean as presented no issues def a great experience
TGTM was very flexible with me after having a delayed flight. Great communication. Very clean vehicle! Thanks TGTM!
Great host ! Would get from him over and Over Again . I wish the pickup was closer lol but that’s not his fault i don’t live in the area lol so I’d still continue to ride with him regardless to that . Communication was awesome and car was nice too
Naveen provides exceptional service. He always responded quickly, was flexible and made the rental process quite easy and comfortable. I will definitely come back to him for any future rental needs.
Nice and simple, really enjoyed driving this vehicle. Will rent from Danny again if I return to Houston 👍🏾
I've rated Dwayne and his Corvette 5 stars only because I can't rate them 6 or more. Clean very cool car in near perfect condition. I throughly enjoyed the rental and will rent from Dwyane again in the future. Stop searching and book this car!!
