Tempted by Tampa

Tampa’s sun-dappled beaches, Cuban history, lively nightlife, and theme parks make it an excellent place to pack your agenda with hour after hour of fun, or just take a slow, relaxing cruise down the coast.

Jump in the balmy water of the Gulf or Mexico, or stay in town and enjoy all the entertainment Tampa Bay throws at you.

Tampa favorites

Tampa is known for its plethora of theme parks where families can get their share of wildlife, thrills, and waterparks.

The car rental process was excellent. The Tesla is a spaceship. The best car I’ve ever driven before. The speed, control and technology was breathtaking. Greg was extremely professional and informative making the rental process much simpler than the traditional process. Will rent with them again!

My brother and I rented this Wrangler for our trip to Tampa. We absolutely loved it. It rides so smooth and the alphine speakers are amazing for listening to music. Shane was excellent in response time and communication. The process of getting the car was easy. We were picked up at the airport, taken directly to our rental where we presented our reservation number and got the keys to the vehicle. Returning was just as easy - refuel, take and upload photos of the vehicle, park in the garage, take keys to desk and get your receipt and the shuttle takes you back to the airport.

First time TURO customer and the experience was great moving our son into the University of Tampa! Vehicle was waiting for us as planned, clean and ready to go. Great communication throughout the whole process with Patrick! While more expensive than a typical rental, no “rental car” hassles with pick-up / drop-off and you are driving a luxury vehicle v. a crappy rental. I’m a long time preferred member with one of the major rental car companies and tried TURO at the request of my son for move in - repeat customers here!

First time using Turo. If having the option, will never use a rental agency again. As far as Connie. Total professional, we arrived in Tampa for a 10am drop off at arrivals car was there 10:01. Just as advertised.Drop off was just as painless. Any Questions that needed to be answered Connie responded immediately. We frequently fly into Tampa and I quarentee Connie's automobile will be the one we first look up for availability. Clean non smoker vehicle, ran beautifully great gas milage Airport PU and Drop off. That alone was worth it.

It is my first time renting through Turo. I was bit skeptical to see ratings Robert had when I made the reservation. True to the past ratings Robert received, I gave him 5 stars. The instructions were easy to follow foe pick up and drop off. It was truly contactless. The car was very clean and looked brand new. He was available to answer any questions for us. Robert was also super gracious, understanding, and accommodating to our last minute requests and issues we had. He truly went above and beyond for us to have a great trip (especially when he had no incentive to do that). I would highly recommend Robert and would definitely rent from him if I were to visit Tampa again. Thanks a ton, Robert! It was a pleasure.

So much easier than a car rental agency. Adam had the car ready for us when we arrived; preconditioned and with snacks and water. Adam also went above and beyond by having a car seat ready in the car for our daughter. I highly recommend Adam and the Tesla.

Regarding cost/value - I paid about the same amount for a Toyota Camry a few months ago, so I believe I got my money's worth!!

She personally dropped off the car to me at the airport upon my arrival, and met me at the departing flights to pick up the car. Talk about amazing customer service! If you’re caved in the Tampa Bay area do not hesitate to rent from Brittany! I will most definitely be renting again when I’m visiting Tampa.

Great first time experience! This was my first time using Turo and it couldn’t have gone any better. Joey was very polite and his communication was excellent. He met us at baggage claim, guided us to the vehicle in short term parking and after a couple minutes of Turo business we were off! It was great especially after hearing from a friend they spent 4 hours at a backed up rental counter the next day. The car was exactly what I was looking for and a little less expensive than expected. Room for 5 and luggage. These cars go quick so if it’s available don’t hesitate. RC

I had to make a trip to Tampa at the last minute. ALL the major rental companies were sold out, but I had heard of Turo through friends in Seattle who had rented some exotics. I normally drive a gas-guzzling sportscar, and have friends who drive Teslas, so decided to try one out. Gregory was EXCELLENT at communication, sent plenty of clear instructions (there IS a bit of a learning curve...probably not the best rental car for the tech-challenged) and the car was clean and exactly as described. The car is basically an iPhone on wheels! Perfect for around town, very comfortable, and plenty of room. I did struggle with keeping the vehicle charged due to the destinations I had to go to (rural, no chargers available, and only one small/slow, occupied charger in the town I was overnighting in.). Due to this, I had to drive 80 miles out of my way to find the “free” supercharger in the next town. I even went to the local Walmart that had pay-chargers, but the adapter in the trunk didn’t work with the charger. Overall, THRILLED with the Tesla as my choice for this trip. If I had been staying in the metro areas, I would likely not have encountered any charging issues...for folks needing to go to more rural areas, make sure you have enough charge to get there AND back....
