Great trip and very smooth pick up and return. Vehicle was exactly as described and Gurpreet was very accommodating when we decided to extend our stay. Thank you so much for everything!
Will was great and accommodating. The car was in perfect shape. Everything was super convenient. I would do it again in a heartbeat.
Car was beautiful, clean, and exactly where it was supposed to be when we arrived at the airport. Edward communicated well and there were no surprises. If you are traveling to the Tampa area and looking for a convertible, look no further.
Pickup and return at the airport was extremely smooth and the car is awesome. Would rent from Michael again!
Agon was very responsive and helpful. Renting the umbrella, chairs and cooler were very convenient. The Prius gets great gas mileage.

Fast communication, fuel efficient and comfortable middle size sedan! Thank you Alia.
Parm was great and loved the car! It was the easiest first Turo experience and I highly recommend renting his vehicle!
James was amazing! The car runs so smooth and is absolutely gorgeous. From the flexibility to having to change my check in time due to a late train to letting me push back the check out time to great communication and customer service, James is a great host. I would love to rent this vehicle out again.
James was wonderful to work with. Very easy to communicate with and flexible with everything. We very much enjoyed the convertible on our beach travels and we would definitely use James's services again. Thanks!
Amazing. Convertible top made the trip feel a lot more like vacation.
Andrei was super helpful and made renting a car a lot easier. He was very flexible and understanding with pick up and drop off times because of our delays. He also explained everything we needed for the rental and responds to messages almost immediately. Would definitely recommend Turo and Andrei to people looking for something easy and convenient!
Edward was awesome, the car was perfect for our trip. Definitely will be using him anytime I’m in the Tampa area.
Amie was an amazing host. She was always responsive and the car was fantastic!
James is awesome!! So easy to contact and get to his car. Car was very clean. He even gave is a ride to airport as he was headed there next. That was an unexpected bonus! Super friendly, highly recommend.
Five stars on communication and ease of pick up and drop off. Four stars on passenger car door. Lol. Jeremy explained it gets stuck sometimes and we could open it with a little more effort. Regardless, it kept my daughter and I laughing. Clean car.
Brian was awesome with every aspect the the process. Very flexible with pick up and drop off times. Would definitely recommend him to a friend.
I was new to Turo and didn't really know how it was all going to go down. Fortunately, I had Tony. He metaphorically held my hand through the process and made it easy to rent his car. He's really a nice guy and boy was his car nice! If you're a first-timer, hopefully you'll be lucky enough to rent from Tony.
Loved driving this beauty around Tampa! Chandler and Shawn were both very helpful and responsive.
JAMES ROCKED. My fiancé and I were pretty clueless at first considering that this was our first time using Turo. He answered any questions I had immediately and the car was perfect and very clean. We will definitely rent from him again when we come back to Tampa. Couldn’t have asked for a better experience!
James Mercedes was in great condition! Very clean and fuel efficient. His pickup and return was seamless and I would live to use his vehicle again the next time I’m in Tampa. Thanks for an awesome first Turo experience!!
Ian was fantastic! Easy to work with and efficient. I'd work with him again. Went above and beyond to make sure I was taken care of.
The only thing cooler than this car was the renter. Travis was great to deal with & everyone I met loved the car. Definitely recommend. 👌🏽
Car was clean and ran great. Tom was easy to get ahold of! All around great experience!
Great communication, kind and thorough. Professional! Car in excellent condition!
Marlon was great to deal with . He was very professional. The car was great on gas but the only issue was the ac blower stopped working, but he assured me that it would be repaired. I would rent from him again
Tony’s customer service goes hand in hand with his fantastic vehicles. Great experience all around.
Michael was a great host and provided a top notch rental. Pickup and drop off was the easiest I’ve ever experienced and was amazing! Would absolutely rent from him again.
Joel was AMAZING! This was my first time ever using the Turo and he made my experience memorable! I had to update my trip many times and he was very accommodating! He was ALWAYS available for any questions or concerns! His car was clean and GREAT on gas! He took time to make sure i understood everything. I LOVED my experience. If you are looking at this car, go ahead and book. You will not regret it! Thank you again Joel for being such a breath of fresh air. I will be back!
Manny was very flexible with the changing plans on both pickup and return. He communicated very clearly and timely. Challenger was fun. Thanks!
Great service, amazing car! Will definitely book with Matt next opportunity!
Kai is a very sweet Host, the car is amazing ! I had to return earlier because the back windows weren’t closing all the way up and with the rain in FL it didn’t Work out well. But I will definitely rent it again from her.
Awesome car owner . very good car . Awesome communication, flexibility, and convenience. Thank you Shaphali.
Amazing trip! Such a great host. Great communication.
Robert was a really great host. Also, his car is really nice and great on gas. I would definitely book with him again
Awesome experience with Matts Tesla. Easy pick up and drop off. Would reccomend booking with Matt again in the future.
Thanks Agon! Everything went smoothly, we enjoyed and will be back!
Yuri and his wife were very easy to work with!!! This was my first time using Turo and this experience with them made me want to defiantly recommended first and foremost their services in the Tampa Bay Area and just Turo in general. Great communication back and forth, would respond every time I texted or would pick up every time I called and even allowed me to pick up the car a little earlier and turn the car in earlier as well. Car run great, gas tank was full, car was clean and just an overall star experience for sure!!!
Andrei is very sweet and communicative. The car runs perfect and very fuel efficient! Thank you Kindly Andrei!
Leslie was fantastic and on time to both pick up and drop off! No issues whatsoever with the vehicle as well. Definitely would use Leslie again!
Alket was super understanding and easy to communicate with - I used this car to look for a new car and it was super convenient.
One of the best experiences in car rental. The service is above and beyond expectations. Thank you!
Great car, convenient pickup at the airport if needed.
Great to work with!! Definitely renting from him again!
Very nice & helpful! They made my first-time experience with Turo a positive one. Thank you!
Great communication and the car is very economical and the mileage was great, camera is nice and stereo is great and the sitting is also comfortable with plenty of space.
Car was fantastic. super easy tranaction and Brigittia was extremly helpful and easy to work with thanks
First time using Turo and it was a great experience. Will use the Turo app and Suncoast Automotive again. The red Subaru Impreza is a great deal for the price.
Amie could not have been more accommodating! Car was clean, stylish, and we got plenty of glances! I'll definitely be getting this car again when we return.
Owner was very flexible about extending trip time. Car has CarPlay feature and backup camera which made for a great trip. Handled very nicely and was clean and well kept.
Car was fun to ride. Loved how David allowed me to rent it for an extra day
Really good at communicating. Picking up and returning was made clear and convenient. I’d use his service again for sure!
Great communication, on-time, and flexible when flight was delayed! Even made suggestions for restaurants upon arrival. Highly recommend!
Marlon was a really good host. As only my second turo experience, he was patient with my methodical, slow picture taking at the start and finish. Also was flexible with my arriving 15 minutes late for the drop off (note: leave 20 minutes extra time for the Howard Franklin backup to the Tampa airport). Great car, such fun to drive. As a Tesla owner, it was tricky to get used to using a valet card instead of the phone key (auto lock/unlock, etc). Marlon was great at communication and gentle nudging regarding the process along the way. A very good host.
Always a Great experience with renting from Joel! Highly recommend Joel!
This Porsche Boxster S is a wonderful car, and Edward did an excellent job of getting it to us.
Great car! And Andrei was very helpful with picking us up from the airport and dropping us back off! Thank you for everything.
Perfect from beginning to end. Such a fun car and seamless rental experience. Matt was responsive and has the drop off/pickup process down to a science.
Great car and great host!! Would recommend this mean machine to anyone who can drive a manual.
My first rental went very smooth! Marlon made my first rental through Turbo great. Thanks!
I use Turo a lot, and this was one of my favorite vehicles I’ve used. This Tesla has the newest tech features put out for Tesla, so it was amazing to experience some of the new tech. In addition to the Model 3, Derrek was an great host! Was willing to be very flexible and made sure I had a great experience with his vehicle.
This was my second time renting with Gavin. Both trips went awesome! Gavin will do whatever he can to make sure your trip goes smoothly! I definitely recommend renting one of his cars.
A fun car. Enjoyed the experience. I hope to have again one day.
Pick up and drop off was so easy. Car drove well. First time using turo and it was an amazing experience.
If you like the look of a driving a luxury car James Mercedes 300c is the way to go.
Awesome & smooth ride. Car is immaculate and very spacious. Filip made our experience amazing and was super accommodating for pick up and return. He made the process super easy and fast! Could not have asked for more!
Everything was perfect and on time. Nice that we didn’t even have to pay to charge it. That saved $30+ in fuel (if it were gas). Car was really cool to drive too. Quick!! Thanks Chris!
It was a great experience and hassle free . Pick up and drop was very convenient . Car was very neat and tidy.
Marlon is great to rent from! Very professional!! Rented from him twice now and great experience with both rentals!!
Excellent experience from start to finish. Car was exceptionally clean. Car was ready when promised and Will was always available when questions arose. Top notch.
James is great! First time using Turo and couldn’t have asked for a better experience. I definitely recommend James and will be using his cars again in the future.
Very prompt. Car was clean, overall fantastic experience. Would recommend.
Communication was great! Kaitlyn made the process very easy.
Great experience! Easy communication and Matthew was flexible (I had to extend a day). Would definitely recommend.
Car was great, gavin communicated on time, would definitely book from him again!!
