Great car!! Very convenient pickup and drop. No need to go to the rental car center. Rauhen was super professional and prompt
Clara was great to work with. This was easier than the rental counter and shuttle bus. The vehicle met our needs and saved us money and time. Thanks.
Super clean, well-maintained car. Pickup and drop off were a breeze. Honestly easier and more fun than the rental counter
Ryan was fantastic to work with from start to finish. Super professional and responsive and his delivery and pickup staff were extremely helpful and friendly. The vehicle (Audi Q5) was fantastic, super clean and easy to drive I felt like we were driving a new car. A 100% positive experience and so much better than the big rental companies. Will definitely use again on future trips.
This was so much easier to use than a rental car. No shuttle to an off site rental car agency, waiting in long lines, and them giving away the car that you reserved! This was super easy to book and Tarmada LLC was very easy to work with and I was able to extend my rental out by 1 day. I will be needing to make multiple trips back to Seattle over the next 3 months and will look to rent from Tarmada LLC if they have vehicles available. Very professional!
This was our first time using Turo. We were looking for an alternative to taking the shuttle bus to the Rental Center and waiting in line for as much as an hour to get our rental car. This was far easier. Flowdy met us at the Alaska Arrival area with the car. There was a short wait, but nothing like you would experience at the Rental Center. The car had a full tank of gas, was roomy...there were three of us, and ran fine. Turning the car back in to him was equally quick and easy. We are sold and will be using him on our next visit.
Michael is an excellent host and very professional. I had questions about the parking and he answered all our questions about street parking. When we hop in the car and the car is super clean. I would recommend all my friends or anyone rent from him. Michael thanks for the service again!
Great communication, smooth rental process, and super clean car. We would highly recommend Jayke’s car!
Great rental! The Jeep ran great and was very clean, as clean as any standard car rental from Hertz or w.e. We opted to add the tent for our trip for only a little extra. We weren't even planning to camp originally but thanks to Terry we ended up with an awesome night camping on the beach at the end of our trip.
Terrific experience for first time Turo user. Car was clean and in like-new condition. Eddie met me at the airport and I and no problems with the vehicle. Much easier than dealing with rental companies. Would definitely use in the future.
Mark made the rental process smooth and easy. He was able to answer all of my questions swiftly and guide me through any issues. Highly recommend. Thank you Mark!
Aside from the affordable price and such an accommodating host, this car definitely made me feel safe from road trips to the steep hills of Downtown Seattle. AWD, great breaks, seat warmers, glass roof, spacious trunk, and much more. Coming from Hawaii, I brought my sisters to Seattle for our delayed birthday trip. With the help of this car, we were able to explore the beauty of Seattle, visit friends in Oregon as well as being able to experience their first time seeing snow in Snoqualmie. This was super exciting for them as they’ve never been outside of Hawaii. Whitney was nice enough to do a quick walkthrough on the features and point out some things at the beginning of the trip. Also had great recommendations on places to visit. Clean and sparkly, despite the rain. And speaking of rain, weather was amazing during the beginning of the trip until the day the car had to be returned, it happened to pour the whole day and Whitney was nice enough to provide 2 umbrellas which was great help as I only brought 1 for the trip. Only recommendation for future renters is to bring a phone holder for navigation as the car does not have android or apple car play feature which I didn’t expect it to have but I happen to bring my holder along and it was great help. Also, I definitely appreciate the parking assistance / detection but going through the car wash on “neutral” it was a bit scary that it just kept beeping to give warning the whole time on both the front and back. I’m sure there’s a way to modify that feature but didn’t wanna play around with it. Other than that, I would definitely rent in the future and we would love to visit Seattle again. Thank you so much Whitney!
Very easy pickup and drop off. Car was in great condition and Matthew answered all my questions immediately. Would highly recommend Turo. Much better than rental car companies!
You will need to stick close to the pick up time that you set for the reservation. Drop off time was flexible with communication. Overall very reasonable.
Adam is a great renter. Rapidly responsive and makes the rental process easy. Car is very clean and fuel efficient.
Chris was absolutely fantastic to work with! I accidentally booked the car a day later than I needed it, but Chris worked with me to make sure we got our car when we needed it. I couldn’t have asked for a better host, and the vehicle was a joy to drive. Especially with all the issues the car rental companies are having right now, I’ll be booking with Chris exclusively any time I’m in the Seattle area.
Great experience for first time. Host was on time at both ends and Flowdy kept us informed throughout the experience. Pricing was much less than regular rental car companies. We will use Turo and Flowdy next time
I been renting from Aureliu my last three trips to Seattle and would highly recommend. They track my flight, the car is super clean, and they are flexible. I’ll never go back to the Rental Car companies.
This is the best car rental experience I never had before Rauhen is the best! She help me a lot on all the car delivery and car return schedule and for sure she has the best car for us! The car is super clean and reliable and the car is fun to drive I recommend anyone who wants to travel to to Seattle please rent a car from Rauhen! Thanks again Rauhen, you are the best
I highly recommend Vasko. He made the rental process as smooth and easy as possible. Very much willing to accommodate to your needs. Although, we realized a car was not necessary in downtown Seattle, the volvo was a fantastic and comfortable vehicle. Vasko's far exceeded my expectations Turo experience. Thank you!
We rented Kiara’s Audi Q5 for our trip to Rainier and Olympic National Parks. The car was in excellent condition, well suited for the mountains and winding roads of WA. The best part of the experience was the quick and easy pickup and drop off right next to the airport terminal. It definitely saved us precious time compared to rental car companies. We will definitely use Turo for our future trips. If visiting Seattle again, we’ll definitely consider renting one of Kiara’s cars.
This was my first time renting a car on Turo, and I have to say that I am extremely pleased with the overall experience. I rented the Tesla Model X during my stay in Washington, it was a memorable touch that added to my vacation. I got to say after driving a Tesla, it’s gonna be hard to go back to my normal car. I truly enjoyed my driving experience. I definitely recommend renting a Tesla, you will not regret it. Not only do you save on high gas prices but get the luxuries and comforts of a Tesla, making your drive fun and enjoyable. Michael was very friendly and on point, he will go above and beyond to ensure that you are familiarized with the controls and functions. As well he is detailed and responsive to any questions/concerns you may have. He even gave me a ride in his new 2021 Tesla when I dropped off the car, which was out of this world, a ride I will never forget, as that car flys! Don’t think twice about it and treat yourself, make your trip memorable and rent one of Michael’s Teslas!
Great solid vehicle! Took a road trip from Seattle to Leavenworth through light snow & felt very safe. George was great to deal with, Thank you George!
We rented this car for a recent trip to seattle, the renter worked with us on our airplane arrival and departure times. Planning a trip back to Seattle this summer and plan to rent this car again
Amazing experience with this Turo trip. The car was immaculate and so easy to drive. The host stayed in communication with me and everything was so easy to handle. I will definitely be using Evans ride again as I am always here in Seattle to see family.
Amy was very flexible and understanding regarding the pick-up time. Highly recommend this vehicle for long trips. It was fun to drive and great on gas mileage!
Tristan made the whole process so easy. He came to arrivals to drop off the car, and met us at departures to pick it up. This was much faster than waiting in line at a rental agency. The Nissan Murano was impeccably clean and comfortable. I am in the market for a new car and renting something that I would consider buying was part of the fun too! It is a spacious vehicle, comfortably fitting two adults and two seniors, with a ton of cargo space in the back as well. Thanks, Tristan!
Roger was a great host! We enjoyed our family trip. We will definitely use you again for future vacations.
This was one of the best rental experience I’ve had... we were greeted at the airport by Dzenan. We were offered a luxury car for price of a Nissan Altima. Our host communicated with us whenever we had questions. He was punctual on picking us up and dropping us off!! Overall a great experience and will use Turo again for sure... the only issue I had was my apple dongle not working with the aux cord do I had to listen to FM radio.. Looking forward to my next trip to Seattle and I will be reaching out to Dzenan for another vehicle
Austin is a great host! He assisted me when my phone app quite working and facilitated my successful visit to my daughter and family. The vehicle is perfect for the Seattle area, all wheel drive, front and rear wipers, great little rig that got 24 mpg average. I highly recommend Austin to anyone! Thanks Austin, you made my Thanksgiving awesome :)
In from DC to visit family for Thanksgiving. We had a killer car, killer Turo experience, and a top notch host! Ernest is a professional, and his cars are immaculate & well maintained. Nothing like renting a Macan for less than Enterprise wanted for a Kia Sentra. Ernest met us at SeaTac for a seemless handoff, & then met us at SeaTac again for dropoff. We were almost an hour late thanks to I5 traffic, and Ernest graciously waited. Will rent again. Thanks for being a part of our Thanksgiving Ernest.
Hands down the best, super fast and easy to get to without any trouble. Perfect for my family and I on our trip. Well maintained and well upgraded vehicle. I definitely would use this person again.
Ryan and Turo came through in every way! Lots of logistics moving our daughter out @ UW over the weekend, and this level of convenience & service was clutch. With “post”-pandemic rentals at an insane premium, we had availability of the perfect size small SUV, priced at half the rate of rental cars. Drove away fully loaded from Alaska arrivals within minutes of landing, and dropped easily on schedule today without the rental car drop lines & airport shuttle nonsense. Great communication & easy instructions mean avoiding the stress level that can make or break a family trip. We’ll be back next time - family intact! *Rookie recommendation - avoid the SEA airport cell phone lot at all costs! Arrived ahead of schedule to drop with Ryan & thought we’d wait there instead of driving in circles. Bad call (our own!) Basically a Hotel California experience - you can pull in but can never leave... Ask Ryan for tips - knowledge and responsiveness invaluable.
Marty and his partner were super accommodating with our late night plane arrival and drop off. The jeep was very clean and an excellent ride for getting my family out to Olympic NP and up Rainer with some snow on the roads. It also worked well in the city, not being too wide for driving narrow streets and the camera helps with frequent parallel parking in Seattle. I would recommend using them.
Nice car. Kim and Tristan were great meeting us at the airport both to drop off the car and to pick it up making this rental very convenient. Would definitely rent from them again on my next trip to Seattle. Best rental experience. Thank you.
This was my first trip with Turo and I couldn’t have asked for a better experience with Whitney and the Audi! Whitney was an amazing host by making this trip fun and seamless for me. She went above and beyond to make sure I had everything I needed and gave great recommendations for my time in Washington. The car was clean, smelled fresh, and in great road trip condition. I will definitely plan another trip with the Audi for my next visit to Seattle. Thanks Whitney!
Not only was Paul an AMAZING host, (responsive, thorough and funny) the van was the absolute perfect way to get around on our trip There was 6 of us, so a regular sized car would do, but the expedition seated all of us and was extremely comfortable no matter where you sat, as well as it was very easy and comfortable to drive. I was concerned that parking in the Seattle area would be a problem, but the Expedition has a great back up camera as well as sensors that make parking it a breeze. 10/10 recommend
This was a great trip. Ivan and Hannah are awesome hosts! We coordinated drop off and pickup times for a superb seamless transfer. The vehicle was perfect, super clean. Can’t say enough amazing things. When I travel to Seattle I will be booking through Ivan again!
Really nice owner. Very clean and nice car. If I ever come to Seattle again I will work with Ryan and rent a car again.
The pick up and drop off was seamless. The vehicle was in superb shape and was perfect for our family of 4 and 6 luggages. Car seat was also provided and was tethered. Thank you for being so helpful and accommodating our last minute rental!
What a great and easy trip! Clean car, easy and timely pickup and drop-off. Would recommend, and would certainly rent again.
Ryan and his team were tremendous. Best “rental car” experience I have ever had. Car was extremely clean and exactly as described. Prices were reasonable and Ryan responded immediately when I had to extend. Truly a fantastic experience and will rent from him every time now I need a car in Seattle area. Thank you Ryan!!!
MeThis how rental was about fun and d iffy cc something different and the Bronco definitely hit the marjnn it was
My first time ever using any car rental app, I spent months(3m) of reading hundreds & hundreds of reviews until I found Quintin!! (I booked three months in advance too). Being my first time I was on the skeptical side with LOTS of questions, the communication from Quintin was outstanding, quick & helpful! We were visiting from out of town & the weather was rainy which caused a reschedule for one of our attractions, he helped me in extending the rental for an extra day with no problem or hesitation. The mid-size suv was perfect for my family, smooth driving, nice controls, trunk space was great for our stroller & bags. The back-up camera was handy for parallel parking! If we ever come back to Seattle we will DEFINITELY rent from Quintin! He also delivered the vehicle to our hotel, the delivery fee was very reasonable($20) compared to others. If you are a skeptic like I was I’d say go with Quintin, very respectful and made me feel so comfortable which made my first experience the best, no issues, no problems! Shout out to Quintin & his assistant Rene for being so nice to me, I appreciate it!
Ryan was an excellent host and the Evoque was the perfect small SUV for exploring the PNW! Car pick up and drop off at the airport were seamless, and I'd definitely rent from Ryan again on trips into Seattle.
Rauhen is amazing to rent from and has impeccable vehicles! I had to extend my trip twice due to airline ticket changes, and she was understanding and accommodating throughout the entire process. As a Jeep Wrangler owner myself, this Jeep is definitely a fun one!
Julies’a Kona was such a smooth ride and easily handled Seattle’s busy rainy streets! Not to cramped but not taking up much space it was great! Julie had easy instructions for pick up and drop off and was communicative whenever I something had arisen! A great experience.
We had an awesome time renting Ray’s Tesla! This was our first time driving an EV, and Ray was very helpful getting us acclimated to both the car and the charging process. All communication was prompt and friendly. I’ll definitely rent from them again whenever we need an SUV for the weekend!
Eric's Subaru was in excellent condition and great for a family trip. It was very clean and you could tell Eric took time to make sure the car was in great condition. Pick up and drop off couldn't have been easier. Eric was also great at communicating throughout the whole process. I would definitely recommend working with Eric.
What a great experience, first time user, had a memorial to go to in Seattle, along with many family events in the area, so I reached out to Adam who happened to also be at a memorial that weekend, but was super accommodating and helpful every step of the way, the car was perfect for your trip, fun to drive, clean, and a great price compared to renting car company’s, we will definitely rent again from Adam next time we are in town.
This is the third time I rent a car from Ryan. The car is always in the best condition and delivered to the airport on time. I'll continue to rent from Ryan on future trips to Seattle. Ryan as always very helpful on chat. Thank you!
Amazing car, even better host. Anna and her co-host were beyond accommodating and made our first time booking a treat. If you're ever in the Seattle and looking to book I would choose one of her vehicles and start spending your time enjoying your trip as opposed to spending at a car rental. Thank you Anna and Co. for the excellent service!
Car was fun to drive. Great acceleration and handling. Host was incredibly helpful and has a great personality. Easy to communicate with. Will definitely rent again next time. Car and host was a highlight of our trip. :)
Great service, timely, and perfect communication! So much easier than a rental, and Ryan & Alex are both super cool people, 10/10 highly recommend!
Andre's Jeep Wrangler is exactly what we needed for our ski trip, worry free for any weather conditions! Andre was very accommodating and helping throughout the entire process, will definitely rent from Andre again next time we're back.
Karen’s car was a perfect car for a mini-getaway in the Seattle area. It was super rainy when we visited, but the rugged car gave us a lot of confidence driving around the area. Pickup and drop off at the airport was super easy, the car itself was really clean, and the features on the car (Apple CarPlay, heated seats, lane departure warning, etc.) were awesome. Definitely would recommend!
