John was just an amazing host! Everything was handled smooth and such a great guy to talk to! I highly recommend him to anyone looking to rent a car in Chicago! See you next time :)
Eric was great, and the Mini Cooper was great. I hadn’t used Turo before and wasn’t sure how it would work with picking up cars and dropping them off, but Eric’s communication with everything was perfect and I never felt like I was left wondering what I should do. Would definitely recommend if anyone needs to rent a car out of Chicago!
Easy, helpful service, a lot like a car rental company except easier, fewer hidden fees and friendlier. Strongly recommend
I definitely had a great experience with Duce luxury car. I recommend anyone that comes to Chicago and rent out this vehicle. 10 star in my book
Amazing service 5 stars PLUS plus plus. I wish I could give 10 stars. Pengfei Song is the best, he accommodated me in every way possible and he even went above and beyond with making sure the car made it to me even though my flight was late. The service was A1, the car was A1 and I will be using this service again, actually I will never use any other car rental service, Yal are my go-to forever!!!
Pengfei was great and very punctual. Made this trip a breeze. Thanks for allowing us to rent your car. I’ll definitely look you up again when I’m in Chicago.
Great car and Eric was always available to answer and questions! Will definitely be utilizing his rentals next time I am in Chicago!
Eric was extremely helpful! There was constant communication before, during and at the end of our trip. The car was exactly like pictured/described. It was super clean and reliable. When I return to Chicago, I will defiantly rent from him again. I highly recommend him!
Alex is a cool guy and is on time. Car rides great no complaints. I will definitely rent from him again anytime I’m in Chicago 👍🏾👍🏾
Presto’s is great—highly recommend! He met us at the terminal on both ends of our trip, which was super-convenient, and the car was in excellent condition and worked out well for our weekend in Chicago.
This trip was seamless. Kurt was great in all aspects of the rental of his Honda, recently. Car was clean and drove well. No issues whatsoever. Highly recommend using Kurt's vehicle to anyone looking for a reliable and reasonably priced car.
Great car! Super easy to get around. And saves gas. Most definitely will be renting this car again in the future when I go visit Chicago again.
Perfect drop off an pick up. David was super responsive when I had questions. This car helped us a ton on my trip back to Chicago.
Majed was a great host! I had no problems with his communication, customer service, nor did I have any problems with the car. The Mercedes is amazing, rides smooth, and the features are absolutely stunning. I will rent anytime I’m in Chicago and see this car available. 100%!
The host is beyond amazing, Emmie goes out of his way to accommodate any need! I would highly recommend this host & the car is honestly amazing! I personally only drive German cars and this car has all the bells and whistles I’m used to and more! I will be using this car anytime I come to Chicago! Thank you Emmie!
Alex was awesome, very detailed, on time, helpful with the vehicle. The best rental I’ve had from Turo, great car, great service, great person.
Love this car! Awesome ride and super comfortable to drive. Car was really clean and George is a fantastic host! I no doubt will be using his cars again when visiting chicago!!
Patrick is a great communicator. This car is the perfect city car. We will rent from Patrick again when we come back to Chicago!
Trip was great, and Eric made sure I was able to find the car easily and return with no issues. He was very quick to return texts or calls. Highly recommend using him and will be doing so next time I come back to Chicago.
Eric was so helpful in helping me with the car! He checked on me every step of the way to make sure I was accommodated. If you are looking to rent a car and aren’t looking to spend some crazy amount of money, look no further than renting from Eric! Thank you and I will make sure to rent from him again!!
Mohammad is one of the most caring and friendly people I've ever met. If you're in chicago and need a ride, do yourself a favor and rent a car from him.
Needed to rent a car last minute to get to a funeral, and this process could not have been easier. The car was clean enough and easy to use given its price and age, and got excellent gas mileage. Pick-up location was easy to find, though I don’t know if I’d have felt safe picking up or dropping off alone at night. The one thing to note is the car does not have cruise control, but truly if I need a car in a pinch again, I will be trying to get this one. Thank you!
Pengfei is a terrific host. I would recommend him to anyone that is on the market for a car rental. Great customer service, responsive, and easy to talk to. Eugene
Amazing car and the best host Pengfei was super flexible with me needing to extend. Car ran like new incredible gas mpg. Will definitely be renting again
Brian was freaking amazing!!!! He communicated every step of the way, was very courteous and professional. My grand-dad passed away and I had to book a trip last minute. Brian went above and beyond to accommodate me and my family at our time of grief. This was my very first time using Turo, and Brian made it a breeze. Thank you so much Brian, I will be booking with you every time I visit Chicago 🥰
Great car. Pengfei was easy to work with and quick to respond. Will book with him again next time I’m in Chicago.
AMAZING RIDE!!! Alon was so nice, courteous, polite and accommodating. Like seriously, I would rent from him again. The booking was stress-free and Alon made sure to make this trip extra special for my birthday weekend. If I could I would give him 10 ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐. This was one of the best experiences I've ever had on Turo. Can't wait to rent from you again. Thank you!
Best Experience I’ve had With A 2019 cars. Great Car to Drive and Owners is Great at communicating
Gabriel is an exceptional host and the car was perfect for my weekend trip! I will definitely rent from him again!
First time using Turo and I’m really impressed. Eric set the bar way high for my future rentals. He was very communicative and responsive. Extremely friendly and helpful with my first experience and guided me through all the steps! Answered my questions immediately whenever I had them. The car was very clean and worked well. We had no issues at all with it! I have a fiat at home and it was very easy to drive as I was used to it already. Loved the experience, super seamless! Highly recommend!
Car was the best I’ve rented yet. Extremely fast, eye catching and overall a fun drive. I will def be renting again. Shamar was a great host as well
Reda was super helpful in making this rental as smooth as possible, amazing car for exploring the city !!
Great car for Chicago, it was safe and reliable. It had enough space for our luggage and other passengers (fit 5 total people). Will definitely use a car from Eric again when I return to Chicago!
Had a good trip car was clean fun and safe will absolutely renting with them again
Great experience! The car was as advertised, and the pick-up/drop off process was simple and convenient. We even needed to extend the rental, which was no problem.
Will is a great Turo car owner to rent from. I have been using Turo for 4 years and he’s one of the best. We had such a great experience with him. Hope to rent again soon!
This was my first time using Turo and I must say from start to finish my experience renting a car was extraordinary. Over many years I have rented with probably every auto rental company in the US but nothing even comes close to the Turo experience. Indeed, I initially rented with Turo because the national rental companies were ridiculously high and William provides a good deal on his cars. I did so with great skepticism, but from the moment I started the rental process with William, my concerns began to diminish. William would answer any questions I might have. The car was clean and well maintained. Needless to say, I am now a confirmed Turo renter and look forward to my next trip with William and the convenience of using Turo.
Awesome car, everything was great!!! Definitely recommend Laura and her car to anyone traveling to Chicago!!
I rented this car for a weekend trip to Indianapolis and I’m so glad I chose correctly. Benny was very responsive and gave very clear directions. I had no issues at all driving and loved that I could connect my phone to the Bluetooth for easy navigation and no issues with toll roads. Thanks Benny!
Easy to get to, car worked perfectly for our drive up to Geneva Lake and around the city. The small size of the car makes it super easy to park. I would recommend this rental!
Perfect car for what we needed to just bop around the city. Clean, fresh and just a great deal. Justin was a breeze to work with too- highly recommend renting from him!!
Car was great , the person was extremely helpful and kind and patient with a first time Toro user / Chicago Visitor , everything went off smoothly and I have zero complaints.
Patrick was one of the best hosts I've worked with: prompt & clear communication and one of the easiest pick-ups/drop-offs I've ever had at Midway airport. I felt like he valued and appreciated my business. Car was as described and was very clean. The Toll Pass was a definite plus. I'll rent from him again in a heartbeat!
Car is fantastic (I am a BMW owner / lover) and the owner, “Jimmy” was awesome. Will definitely use Turo / Jimmy again when in Chicago next.
Marc was a fantastic host! The Tesla was the nicest car we had ever rented and we were debating on purchasing one. After our trip, it’s a no-brainer. The car was in immaculate condition, and drove beautifully. Tesla’s onboard mapping system mapped out our long distance destination along with charging stations to ensure the car was always charged. Thank you Marc for everything!
The rental was very easy. Communication with the owner was very good. The car was clean and reliable. I would recommend renting from Tiffany👍
Lucas's Honda Civic was such an easy rental, especially for a first time Turo user! Importantly, the car ran great; smooth on the highway, smooth transmission, accurate and responsive steering, and windshield wipers that cleared every drop of rain. Also, great gas mileage. Secondly, the interior was absolutely spotless! No hair, dust, dirt on the floor or seats, and clear glass all around. Even the trunk was immaculate. The ease of pickup from Midway airport was a breeze. If your flight lands there, contact Lucas for this Honda.
Kevin was a pleasure to work with. He is easy to communicate with and responds back almost immediately with any concerns you have. Car drives smooth .I will rent from him again in the near future. My new favorite rental.
Hey guys. Reda and his car are super clean and he’s almost always available in case things aren’t quite up to par. The Nissan was super smooth and reliable. Thanks for the ride Reda !! Totally recommend him and his rentals for quick easy clean business. 5 stars
Paulette was very communicative and made sure Everything went smoothly with the pickup and drop off of the rental. Would definitely rent her vehicle again. Car was great and more than we expected to be honest.
Bobby was easy to work with and very accommodating. Great host! Will definitely rent from Bobby again the next time we are in Chicago!
Christopher was super communicative and helpful. I rented the car to help with a local move and errands, and for a small car, the cargo space is great. I'm in the neighborhood now and wouldn't hesitate to rent again for a weekend trip.
Eric was very responsive before/throughout my trip and was always available to answer questions. His instructions were clear and easy to follow. His service helped make my visit to Chicago stress free
Great rental! The car was really nice, ran perfectly, and Ann was beyond pleasant to work with! Would definitely rent again.
Very helpful in lending his car to me, so I can explore Chicago in my own hands. Thank you again. Loved the easy check in and check out process.
Patrick’s car was amazing for what I needed it for in Chicago. It was just me and oh my photography equipment. Driving this car around was like driving a live action go kart. Chicago is a busy city you have to watch out for everything in this car was super responsive super cool when I got it and Patrick was extremely communicative. If you are heading to Chicago and you need a car to get from A to Z and somewhere in between like around M, Is the car that you want. Did I also tell you that I only spent about $30 if that on gas refilling up? I had to head out about an hour out of Chicago and back Andy inside outside of downtown and up and down Lake shore Drive. If it’s just you and one more person this car is perfect! So is Patrick he was there to pick me up on time and so cool.
Muhammad was beyond 5 stars! He was easy to work with and very responsive if anything was needed. He was an amazing host and I plan on ALWAYS renting from him when I come to Chicago!
Super nice guy! Very thorough! Really enjoyed my stay here in Chicago while riding round in this amazing car. Super clean, face masks, and hand sanitizer. What a great host, surely do hope to work with you again.
Eric made my trip so convenient. Since I was arriving into town late, he dropped the car off for me at the airport so that I could just go straight to it after my flight landed. The iPass he provides saves on time and money so that I don’t have to worry about going around the tollways. I will absolutely be contacting Eric again for another rental when I head back that way next time and I would recommend him for anyone traveling and needs a car rental. Thanks Eric!
I enjoyed the vehicle that I receive over the weekend.. The host is a great person to rent a car from and he is very reliable.
Car was sparkling clean, pristine condition and drove beautifully. Brian was punctual for pick up/drop off, accommodated trip extension and communication for questions almost instant. We use Turo often and this was hands down our best car rental and host experience! It’s great to know excellent customer service and quality cars are available every time with Brian.
This is how car rental should be. Definitely a great experience using this service for the first time. Elina was amazing with all of this, from delivery, during our trip and car return process; her communication was flawless, on time and easy to follow. Will recommend her 10/10, and won't hesitate to look for her again on my next Chicago trip.
Great service, responded super fast to any questions I had, and helped me navigate my first rental on Turo. 10/10 would rent from Imran again!
He was absolutely incredible! He was understanding and was fun to chat with! He made the process very easy! He even navigated me through the airport to help me out! This guy here is the best choice if you need a car! Thanks again! God bless you and your family! Stay safe! Definitely will use you again when we come for basketball game!
This car workout well for our trip. Easy to access and return. Helpful host. I would book this car again
PENGFEI was an amazing host. I had some difficulties towards the end of my trip and he was responsive, attentive, and very patient and understanding. The best host I’ve experienced so far.
I reserved this vehicle using the Turo app for the 1st time. It was also the 1st time I had driven a BMW. My only issue is that I'm 6'4" and having never even been in a BMW didn't realize it wouldn't be as roomy as I am used to when driving our mini vans - totally on me!! Anyway, I had such a wonderful time driving this car for 4 days and would definitely contact Eric again for my next trip. Eric sent me such meticulous and detailed instructions from which door to exit the baggage claim area, to which level and where the car was parked, to all the return instructions I would need. The saying that you only get one time to make a good impression sure fits this situation. Eric, thank you so much for everything you did to make this trip back home so enjoyable. Until next time, take care!! Robert
This was my first time renting from Turo. The car and the experience were great. I would rent again.
Great value. The car has all the features you need, and pickup and dropoff were easy. The steering is a bit sensitive so on a windy day, it was not ideal but solid car overall.
Amazing communication and vehicle delivery. Would 1000% rent again. Car drives great.
The car is better than you think. 365hp plus luxury equals extension. You will keep it one more day, host is on point and I'll be getting it again.
I love how the BMW drove it was a really clean car and you were very responsive when I reached out thank you so much... I’ll definitely rent from you again ☺️
Great. Nice car to drive . Breanna communicated with me well. No issues would rent again!
I had a great experience renting from Ulukbek. The Tesla model 3 is definitely a car from out of this world and you should definitely rent it out yourself. I’ll definitely be back to rent with Ulukbek again in the future.
Great host and car. Everything went smoothly and street parking was no issue at all! Would rent again.
Eric was the best host. Gave me information that was super helpful in addition to the drop off and pick up information. He made our pick up and delivery super fast. Car was beautiful and had great features. Loved that the car comes with an IPass too to skip the cash toll expenses. The prepaid cleaning was a great idea as well.
Gabriel was great. The car was in beautiful condition, incredibly clean, and he spent the time walking me through my first time driving a Tesla. Great experience, would give more than 5 stars if I could. Planning on renting again. Rent with Gabriel!
Zohair was fantastic, super easy to work and incredibly flexible on timing to drop off / pick up the car. And the ride was incredible, immaculate and worth the trip. Thanks!
