This was my first dealings with Turo and Victoria made this experience easy-going! Her Lexus SUV was in perfect condition and had a smooth ride! The hostess was accessible and even granted me an extension on short notice! The price point was excellent as well! Much cheaper than the commercial rental companies for this type of luxury vehicle! I will be using this site and this hostess again! Thanks so much!

Skipping the car rental counter >>>> Eduardo seriously made my trip to a Houston a breeze! The car was ready and waiting for me, with clear instructions every single step of the day. Vehicle is in perfect condition and very nice! Would recommend this host and vehicle. I plan to rent from Eduardo again if needed.

I can’t say enough but am very grateful for vehicle owners like Markita. My wife and I recently traveled to Houston and needed a clean comfortable vehicle. We put our trust in Turo and Markita instead of renting from the standard car rental agency’s, and were extremely impressed by our overall experience. Also, thank you Markita for allowing us to make changes to our trip rental when we needed to extend the number of days… and then meeting us where it was most convenient for us. Turo will be our first resource when planning travel that requires a rental vehicle. Thanks again!

This was the best rental I’ve had so far, I was in a rush to re-book because the last car I reserved wasn’t ready. However, Modupe made this reservation process really easy and allowed me unlock the car from the app. From there I was set, the communication was spot on, and provided recommendations for spots around Houston. I’m looking forward to returning and possible re-booking.

We had an unexpected death in the family, and needed a car in Houston at the very last minute. None of the Rental companies had any cars due to the Houston Rodeo was in town. We found Dimma's Nissan Rogue and could not have been happier. She was very nice to me, as a first time Turo user. Her instructions were clear, complete and correct. We will look her up next summer when we return to Houston for fun!

Although the steps in the app were initially confusing for me being new to this, the rest of it was great! Easy to get a vehicle, affordable prices compared to rental car agencies! We couldn't get a rental through an agency because we were out of state residents they wanted a major credit card. We don't use them. Turo made it easy with using my debit card! Communication easy with quick responses! Easy to extend trip! Our vehicle broke down with us being over 17 hours from home. We had to extend our trip several times waiting for our vehicle to get out of the shop. I would definitely use this service again!!! Vehicle was nice and clean!

Author was wonderful and his car is fantastic! It was very roomy and got great had mileage. It’s also the most reasonably prices Turo we could find. Author dropped it odd for us at our hotel and arranged for a smooth and easy return at the airport. The next time we are in Houston, we will rent from Author again! Excellent experience all around!

Isreal was great and the car was even better! We had to come to Houston at the last minute for a funeral and he met us at the airport and was flexible when we were leaving. He is an awesome host! The car was awesome as well, the perfect stylish state-of-the-art SUV for our trip. It comfortably held my family of 6 plus cargo! The car is so automated it was doing things before I even thought of them! Amazing! This was my first time using Turo and I am very happy with it so far. Much less hassle than regular car rental companies.

This has been the best rental car process by far. First time using Turo but found Leon's car that looked I'm phenomenal condition for much better than anywhere else I looked. Communication was quick and efficient, extremely cordial in all responses. There were a few things I needed clarifying and he helped break down the process and clarified anything I asked. The car was pristine, ran smooth. Inside and out well taken care of. I would 10000% recommend this car or any other of Leon's cars.

Murtaza was fantastic to rent from. He provided clear instructions prior, during and after the rental which made the process very simple for someone new to the area. He also responded very quickly at any point of the trip. When we visit Houston again we will definitely only be renting from Murtaza.

I rented Cara’s truck for a friend’s graduation trip in Houston. The vehicle was extremely comfortable and served all our needs while we were there, plus it was a great price! We would have been paying double with a rental company. Cara gave me excellent care, and she was very helpful with all of my questions. I would definitely rent from her again if I’m in Houston.

This was the first time to rent a car from Turo. I’m thankful that God sent Doncel my way! My wife and I rented his Kia Soul 2021 for a whole week. The car was very clean and provides great MPG. Doncel was an exceptional host to say the least. He was honest, very responsive and pleasant to deal with. Just because of the wonderful experience we had with Doncel, I strongly will recommend him to my family, friends, and anyone visiting Houston. God Bless him and his family.

This is the only rental that actually ever made me want to buy that car as my next upgrade. This Escalade is bad ass from top to bottom. I had my family in and out the whole trip and all they could talk about was this sweet ride. This is the best rental I've ever had. Period. Stop looking at other cars because this is the one you want. You won't regret it.

Geoffrey was a great host. This was my first time using Turo & was somewhat nervous because I'm used to going to main rental companies with no hassle, but rates were extremely high for a weekend ($500), so I looked into Turo. No regrets. Geoffrey's communication was great and it was a smooth process.

Best Houston driving roads

Purple squiggle

Enchanted Rock

Traverse the gorgeous pink granite mountain at sunset for magical views and stargazing at night. Legend has it that staying overnight leads to a surreal experience, like becoming invisible.

Brazos Bend State Park

Take your Houston truck rental alternative for a quick 45-minute drive to this state park and prepare yourself for alligator sightings when wandering the trails.

Big Thicket

Marvel at the diverse species of trees, ferns, and flowering plants at this thickly forested area. Watch your step, as the park is home to a few groups of beautiful yet venomous snakes.
