Awesome rental and awesome host. Was perfect from start to finish
Samantha B.- May 18, 2022
Since we flew Southwest into T1, it was a hike (tram, shuttle bus, and then a walk) with luggage to find the vehicle in the T3 Economy lot. I would suggest sending 1 person from your party to get the vehicle, and they can drive back to pick up the rest of the party. Other than that, Aura’s communication and vehicle itself was top notch!

I needed a larger car while I had some family in town. The vehicle was in great shape and price was much better than standard rental companies. Drop-off/pick-up was easy and Christopher was very accommodating to a last minute extension of the rental period.

Both Eyal and the car are most wonderful. Eyal was very accommodating and very responsive to any questions about this car. This was the first time I drove a Tesla, now we ordered our own Model Y :) We drove the car with 3 adults, one newborn, and 3 toddlers. And it was comfortable given how compact the Model Y is.

Ashton was absolutely incredible! She was very accommodating and cooperative. She dropped off the car early where we were staying so that we could take our time with checking in. Her Tesla is spotless and the interior looks like it’s never been touched. Her car has all the bells and whistles you could ask for. I look forward to renting from Ashton again whenever I’m in the LA area. Thank you Ashton!
