Great experience with Corey and his FIAT. Great communication and all instructions were extremely clear. Never ran into an issue with check-in/out, driving, navigating, or anything. Car runs great and was exactly what I needed to get around town. Also great gas mileage! Thanks again, will definitely be reaching out again.
Very nice car and very nice owner. Was forward thinking in parking at the airport although we had to pay both coming and going parking garage tickets- the trip and car were otherwise amazing! Will definitely rent from again! Thanks Sam!
What a great car.. owner met at the airport on time.. very satisfied. Thanks
Jacob was easy to communicate with, and he was flexible regarding pickup/return times and location. His car is comfortable, and easy to drive, plus the gas mileage was good. I would definitely rent from him again.
First time using this site and had a great experience. It was easy, stress free and a better experience than any car rental service. Very happy and would highly recommend using the service because of the experience with Dzenan specifically.
Amazing car and amazing experience. You need to rent this car. I won’t forget it.
Rauhen was such a great person to work with. She communicated with us extremely quickly and responded to all of our questions and concerns. She went above beyond the service we would have expected and made our trip run as smoothly as possible. Would love to rent from her again in the future.
Great car and very easy to work with Thuy-An, who was very accommodating. Highly recommend!
Quick visit to Seattle and I came across this Tesla Model S and decided to rent one on occasion of my birthday! (Because why not!) Rates were generous considering so I proceeded. Quinn was very informative when walking thru the basic operation and features of the vehicle. He provided everything required with a few additional amenities and the more we delved into the details about the vehicle, the more impressed I was with the level of tech inside this 2014 model! Incredible! This thing has got a lot of torque and letting go of the accelerator will feel like it’s engine braking in low gear (I know.. there’s no traditional engine... but that’s as close to a description I can relate it to) All the controls took some getting use to but by a few hours, it was manageable. After a day, I was a novice! The sheer joy of this you have to feel for yourself as you sit behind the wheel of this in the cockpit of a silent rocket! It pushes you into the seat in take off that caught me off guard and I was left with an uncontrollable grin for the duration of that drive! Considering the rarity of color for the vehicle, this car received so much attention not only from bystanders but especially the other Tesla drivers! Sound system: initially I thought had a volume limitation when connected to Bluetooth. In actuality it was an operator error on my part. My phone volume was down but as I cranked up the sound on my phone, the audio in the vehicle was bumping with good bass and most notably... clarity! Premium sound indeed!!! Curious how much earth shattering vibrations it could get if there was a subwoofer or how much juice it takes away from the battery if it’s installed. In any case, there was no clipping on the lower end for bass but cool factor and quality in that regard: Superb! Too many features to list so just rent this, even just for a day, and gather your own critique, formulate your own opinions! I strongly considered not returning it but I endured the heartbreak in parting with it to the original owner... 😢 (cue sad song...) Excellent and easily above five star all-around! Thnx for lending me your 2014 Tesla Model S Quinn!!!
Slavi was easy to communicate with and provided a solid car for our needs.
Paul was very accommodating and communicative. He allowed us to pick up the car earlier than we had booked so we could beat traffic. Pick up went smoothly and the car was clean and the gas tank full. Car is nothing fancy but runs well. Drop off was convenient. Overall, great first experience on Turo. Thanks Paul!
Family reunion. Couldn’t afford big commercial company rental fees at such a popular travel time. Tahir had a perfect car that suited our needs, had it parked waiting at the airport upon our arrival and we parked it upon our return. We had some problems with our phone and couldn’t access the app online at first but Tahir was very accommodating and helped make it all work out on his end. Very thankful we chose to rent from him instead of anyone else or another big business.
Chris was super helpful, and takes great care of this fun car.
Wonderful trip and car. Easy pick up and drop off. Taras was very kind and helpful. Thank you so much!
Amy was super responsive and flexible with the car share. Great, fuel friendly car for a quick trip!
Eva was awesome and very accommodating. Her Tesla model 3 was as good as new and I loved driving it on my camping trip!
Rauhen and family are just great people. They made every effort possible to make my trip worth traveling. The BMW was clean, affordable, and efficient. It had plenty of room for my 2 large bags and 3 carry-ons. We traveled all over Washington and Cannon Beach on a tank of gas. She has other vehicles in her fleet that I will more than likely put to use during my future trips. Six stars, all day long! Thanks, Rauhen!!!! -Ian
Ankit is always great hope to rent from him again in the future.
Dropped off the car at the airport for us. Great communication. Owner made the experience!
This was a reliable and very convenient rental! Great communication and comfy enough for my two kids and myself for a weekend trip for tournaments in 90 degree weather! Would definitely go through them again!
Seamless trip. Easy pick up and drop off. Thanks for making my experience amazing!
Tara is very flexible. The car is good. Clean and convenient. Don’t hesitate to rent from him!
Great host. Easy to work with. The Cayman was a lot of fun. Drives very well! Five stars.
It’s everything we need he had chargers an for both ours phones ready to go I definitely book with ken again
Business trip was much smoother due to ability to coordinate pickup and drop off location and time. Car and pricing were just right for this trip. Would definitely recommend using Turo and Chris again. Thanks.
Danielle was wonderful and the car was clean and perfect for our trip. Thanks Danielle!
Haru made the trip easy! Was very quick to communicate, and flexible. The car was clean and effective!
Xiong was so accommodating when our flight out was cancelled and again when our return flight was delayed. I would wholeheartedly recommend Xiong, Frontier Airlines not so much.
Micah was on point for us! Made sure to adjust timeframe due to airline delays and cancellations! Would recommend him to anyone.
This was the host's first time and my first time as a customer on Turo. I was pleased. Sir was punctual and communicated well. The car was a newer model and was free of any mechanical issues. Mileage limit was generous and pick/drop off fee was also reasonable. My family vacation to Seattle turned out great. Thank you!
Joan was great to deal with and the car was perfect for small streets of Seattle. And it’s a fun ride. Thanks Joan!
Good car, clean, great communication, easy pick up and return, clear and easy directions. I would definitely recommend and would rent again!
It was a great experience, the car is totally new, comfy, clean and easy to drive. Easy pick up & drop off at Mercedes Benz dealership.
Jason made it so easy and convenient to get his car at the airport using a lockbox. We loved driving the Mercedes around for our vacation! Thank you!!
Car is in great condition and was perfectly clean. It had autopilot enabled and all other cool stuff you expect to try in Tesla. Charles was very relaxed and flexible about vehicle and milage. Also, Charles has all National Parks tickets for his car. It's a great deal for a road trip in the Northwestern United States.
Had a great time in Richard's Honda Fit. He made for a smooth pickup and dropoff and was quick to answer any questions I had for him. Would definitely recommend!
Ankit is a wonderful host and I am very grateful to him. He was flexible with my last minute changes and when I left an item in the car by accident upon drop off, he offered to mail it back to me. Thank you for everything!!
Abdi was very accommodating. Was able to pick us from the airport prior to us renting the car for the rest of the weekend. Car was clean and great on gas.
Sam was great! It turned out we got our arriving time confused due to timezones and he was super flexible and helped us out a lot. His car drives great and it is very gas-efficient. Definitely recommended!
Car was amazing! Matthew made everything extremely easy with pick up and drop off, will more than likely rent again in the future!
Dzenan was a great host! Easy going and flexible with drop off and pickup. Answered all questions regarding the trip. Would rent again if ever in Seattle. 💯
Renting this car with Guinevere as the owner was AMAZING. The car was a safe and reliable car and the host was kind and considerate and made my renting experience perfect. I rented this car for around 3 months and had a minor problem with the car tire pressure. Guinevere’s husband took care of this problem in a timely manner that was convenient to me which I greatly appreciated. Thank you so much to Guinevere for this amazing car renting experience!!
I can’t say enough good things about Micah. Someone did a smash and grab on the car and he was so cool about it, being flexible when I understandably had to change plans and being super flexible about plans to fix the window. THANK YOU so much for making the nightmare of that ordeal a little less.
Victor was very responsive and gave detailed instructions on how to pick up the car, and answered all my questions. Thank you!
Great experience with Turo/Jarvis. Car was perfect to explore the nearby national parks.
Quinn was awesome! The car was incredible! Very safe and easy to drive. It made the trip one to remember.
Alexandra was super responsive, flexible and great for pick up/drop off at the airport. Couldn’t have been easier to rent a car from her!
Bruce was a very nice host. The car did great and of course the gas mileage was great in his Prius. This was our first time using turo and couldn't be happier we chose Bruce's car. If we make it back to Seattle we'll definitely be contacting Bruce again.
Great car, super fun to drive. Tristan was flexible and super easy to work with
Very timely, responsive, super cool car. Tristan is a very nice guy. Picking up and dropping off right in the terminal was amazing and a time saver. Hands down the best car rental experience I’ve ever had—it puts other rentals to shame.
Great vehicle and owner. Flexible to changes. Will rent again!
Easy pickup and drop off at the airport. Very nice car, comfortable and clean. David is a great owner with which to work.
Had a great first time Turo experience renting Dzenan’s car, would be happy to rent from him again in the future. I appreciated the convenience of airport pickup without having to visit a car rental desk.
Abe was very accommodating! The car was in great condition and a lot of fun to drive. Will definitely rent from Abe again in the future!!
I rented this car for a couple days and it was perfect. Great on gas and the pick-up and return went smooth. I was even able to pick up the car at a closer location which was really convenient. Simon was very punctual and responded back quickly to every question or concern. I highly recommend. I will rent from Simon again if I’m ever vacationing in the Seattle area.
First time renting a vehicle from Turo. Quintin was responsive and made the pickup/drop off convenient. This car had great gas mileage to venture off in.
Car was nice, clean, and as described. Airport pickup and drop off were smooth and super convenient. Communication was easy. A great experience all around with Aureliu!
Abe was great to work with and the car was clean, easy and fun to drive.
Dzenan is great. Pick up and drop off were flawless, and Dzenan was so accommodating to pick us up from the airport late at night. We appreciated the whole experience. Thank you!
The car and host were both great. Marshall came through for me, with very short notice, after another host left me stranded. Saved my vacation day!
If I were to ever come back to Seattle, I would want to book his car again. Gas saver, plenty of room even for a 6’3” guy like me, and will get you places.
Paul is awesome! He extended my trip with no issues! Car is in great shape, clean and comfortable!
Great provider, completely hassle free. Would highly recommend.
Great experience renting Ankit’s Subaru. It was perfect for getting me and my friends, and all our backpacks, to the trailhead. He was very responsive and the car was as described.
Everything about my Experience with this car was effortless. Thank you for the hospitality.
Christopher is an excellent host. Communicating the pickup was super easy. The BMW drives amazingly smooth. The hills and holes of Seattle disappear (in a good way) in this car. Totally taking this car out again next time I need a car.
Nick was great! We appreciated his help and cooperation!
David’s car was perfect for our long weekend trip. David was super personal and made the pickup/drop-off super easy. We would definitely rent his car again!
Good communication. Convenient arrangements. We had a great Turo experience with Rodney. Thanks!
Car was incredibly clean and flawless, car came with snacks and essentials , and Matthew was super helpful and friendly.
Micah was amazing. The car was ready when we arrived. It was very clean and was PERFECT for inner city driving. He went above and beyond to help us.
Aureliu is an awesome host.. Clean car, no issues. Great communication. Will definitely book with him again!!!
Car was really clean and drove really well. Got really good Fuel Consumption for it being a hybrid so saved some on gas! Was caught in a jam coming back from Portland and Greg was really nice about it. Will definitely recommend to anyone.
Ken was super friendly, and easy to work with, and the car was very clean and reliable!
This was my first Turo rental & it was super easy. It was convenient and super easy. Victor made everything smooth!
This was my first time using Turo, and Moazzam made it super easy! The car was clean and easy to pick up, drove great too!
Matthew is the definition of a super host. Thank you for the amazing service and attention to every detail.
Clean car inside and out. Meet me at airport when I arrived and when I departed. Great communication. Seamless. Highly recommend.
Brooke is top notch. Very flexible with my chaotic traveling schedule, and took the time to go over a few of the important things about the car with me as well. Would definitely rent again!
Incredible renting experience with Matthew and his Model 3. Car was immaculately clean, a pleasure to drive, and fully charged on pickup. Matthew himself was very courteous, punctual, and even gave us a quick tutorial on how to operate the car. Free pickup and return was great for our convenience too. Would highly recommend to anyone in Seattle and curious about driving a Tesla!
Karl was amazing and everything I could have hoped for in a Turo host: prompt, communicative, agile, and accommodating! The Model 3 I rented lived up the billing and then some -- it was a truly amazing car! Highly recommend.
Joan was great to work with. The car was ready when we arrived and was super clean. It’s perfect for inner city driving .... she was super helpful and really flexible.
