Abdul will put in maximum effort as a host to make sure you are happy with the rental process. He is friendly and helpful. The car runs great, clean (a pack of sanitizing wipes were provided) and no smoke or other offending odors present. I have no hesitation to recommend to others.

This is great! No need to run to car rental, then take a shuttle. They meet you right at arrival and departure

Toyota Highlander 2016

The car is well maintained, super clean very spacious, and drives extremely well. Jabril was extremely professional, friendly, and willing to be flexible with pick up/drop-off times. I would 100% recommend using this car, you get a full-size SUV for an unbeatable price, far less than the other full-size SUV"s but is still equipped with state of the art technology that comes with all the newer models.

Jeep Wrangler JK 2018

We rented the jeep to drive to OBX. The jeep ride was comfortable on the way there. The owner provided cable cords and chargers. It was clean and full of gas. The T top was easy to remove. It handled well driving on the sandy beaches. It was a base model: crank windows, push locks, and no GPS. But, for the price it was a steal of a deal! It made our vacation worth it. It has some power with the V6. My fiance and I couldn't have been happier with the rental. Would highly recommend.

Let me start by saying Gregory is a great guy. He met me at the requested time straight from the car wash. The Audi I rented from him was spotless inside and out and ran great. He made the transaction effortless and I could not appreciate that more. If/when the next instance arrives where I need to rent a car I will definitely be reaching out to Gregory!

Douglas was the best host ever. So nice and very helpful. Amazing! I never used Turo before so I wasn't sure what to expect. If there were a sixth star I would give one. I needed a vehicle for a road trip with some friends for the weekend heading to Charleston and then the mountains. This Jeep Cherokee totally fit the bill. It was absolutely wonderful and super comfortable. What a great experience. I will definitely be renting from Douglas again in the future! This was way better than renting from a rental car company.

Picking up and dropping off the car was a hassle free process. Yohana’s car was freshly cleaned at pick up and seated my party of five and all our luggage comfortably. She was quick to respond, which I very much appreciated because I booked for a week and she had less then 24 notice to prep the car for us. I would definitely book again!

Best Raleigh driving roads

Purple squiggle

Tail of the Dragon

Also known as Deal’s Gap, this 11-mile section of US Route 129 is popular among drivers and bikers for its racetrack-like set of 318 curves with little to no elevation.

Hanging Rock

Take the deliciously windy NC-66 up to the Hanging Rock State Park to let your Raleigh car rental alternative revel in the steep mountain ascent and hairpin turns.

Blue Ridge Parkway

This highway is the most famous road North Carolina for great reason. Rev up your Raleigh car rental alternative to get blown away by the mountain ridges any time of year, but particularly in the fall.
