I've driven a lot of cars from Turo but this car is nothing like the rest. First of all, its dead silent. Speeding on the highway is like flying your own fighter jet minus the insane cabin pressure. Even without the sport , this car can burst by beamers (BMW) with the greatest of ease. Secondly, this car is BONKERS FAST. THEY ARE NOT JOKING ABOUT THE TORQUE. YOU WILL FLY IF U PUNCH THE PEDAL. Lastly, the amount of technology and features in the car is awesome. The regenerative braking let's you drive with one pedal and once you get used to it ,it makes driving so much easier on your feet. Its really cool to know that you can go 110-120 and still recover the battery. This car is an experience that EVERYONE should experience. Thanks to this car, I'll probably end up buying a hybrid or full ev car. Another thing to note, the battery will tell you have a certain amount of kms. Even when driving like a madman, the vehicle got me from Toronto to London with an extra 50km on top

Sam was a great, down to earth individual to deal with. He was easy to talk to and there were absolutely no issues getting a hold of him. His vehicle (a 2015 Benz C-Class) was by far the best vehicle I have ever driven. His maintenance and cleanliness of the car was fantastic and I would no doubt rent from Sam again. I highly recommend coming to Sam for your Turo needs!

First of all, I didn't know what to expect with it being my first time using Turo but not to worry........ I almost felt an instant bond with Joe as he is a REAL car guy just like me! I can see us being in College together and having a blast on campus and he is a very funny and smart guy!! Secondly, the car was in mint condition and SUPER clean!! Reminded me of the time I picked up my new Vette from the dealership. And finally was Joe's attitude. He came across as someone who is legit and truly cares for your experience and well being. You can text him any time and he'll be more than happy to help you with your concerns..........but not because he "has to" because he "wants to" as he does actually care. I repair cars for a living and I will gladly recommend Joe to all my clients as I am also recommending him and Turo to anyone reading this. Cheers!!

I rented my first car using Turo from Osama and it was the best decision ever. He was very responsive and almost always responded within the same minute of receiving my message. He always answered my calls to answer any questions I may have had about the car. Furthermore, he answered all questions thoroughly and accurately and assisted me to the best of his abilities at all times. The car itself was very clean, smelt good, and was easy to drive. As a new and young driver this was a perfect vehicle. I will most definitely be renting from Osama again.

Best Toronto driving roads

Niagara Peninsula

Wind your Toronto car rental alternative along the Niagara Parkway from Lake Ontario down to Fort Erie on this scenic day trip. You’ll get a glimpse of the Horseshoe Falls and find plenty of history and lookout spots on the way.

Highway 60 or Frank McDougall Parkway

Most striking in the fall, head north in your Toronto car rental alternative from the city to catch this provincial highway that leads you through a bevy of lakes before guiding you through twisty turns in the famous Algonquin Park.

Yonge Street

While Yonge is no longer considered the world’s longest road, it’s still the best way to feel the glow and pulse of the city. Head north in your Toronto car rental alternative toward New Market for a quick trip out of town.
