Another amazing trip with Aureliu and Nick! These are my “go to” guys for car rental in Seattle. They are flexible, on time, reliable and the Jetta is always clean, maintained and in perfect condition. I highly recommend their business!!
This is the place to rent a car for Seattle. They picked us up from airpot and dropped us back off. Car was very clean and in excellent condition. I highly Recomend them. Good communication thru app before trip as well.
This was my first experience using Turo and it was easily the best car rental ever. Azil provided a phenomenal car and I would definitely do it again.
Terrific car; terrific service by Tristan, who made it easier than easy to do the car rental thing the right way. Thanks Tristan.
Fandy was great even before the trip started answering my many questions. This was my first electric car rental. He took the time to meet me at the airport to give an overview which I could not have driven the car without. He was very responsive during the trip. Great host all around!
Aaron was extremely helpful, kind, and prompt. The Mustang was clean and super fun to drive! This was my first experience renting, with this platform, and it was hands down the best car rental experience ever! The only downside is now I want to rent his car daily :) Thank you Aaron. You truly provided me, and my family, top notch service.
My partner and I took a trip to Seattle and this was the perfect car for a rental. Small to fit in any parking spot but also performed well for the highway trips to downtown. Weather was sunny and warm so we pulled back the top to enjoy the fresh air and views. The host made the entire process a breeze
Perfect rental for a day trip outside of Seattle near Mt. Rainier. Very clean, great condition. Easy pick up and drop off. Would rent again without hesitation! Thanks, Britney, for sharing your car with us!
My son recommended Turo and Aureliu specifically. I was a little nervous using this type of "car rental", but it was SO easy. Aureliu was on it with communication upon our arrival and when we departed. Classy guy! Will definitely refer friends and family to Turo and to Aureliu.
Easiest experience I’ve done, and major discount from rental cars. 10/10 highly recommended
Mohammed was an extremely accommodating host who was nothing but extremely kind and helpful to us. Definitely going to Mohammed for a car rental whenever I am in Seattle again.
Sean was great. The communication and the ease of the car pickup was fantastic. Had a really fun time with the car, even got sunburnt on my forehead! Looking forward to our next trip to Seattle so we can rent this car again. Thank you Sean!
Dzenan made this trip seamless. We were able to adjust p/up and drop off to work with a changing schedule. Not to mention, saving money during a rental shortage. If your visiting Seattle, book with this guy!!! I’ve used Turo before and the variety and convenience can’t be beat.
This was exactly what Turo users want when they rent a car when flying into town. Curb pickup/drop off, no cleaning fee, and the car worked great. Although we cleaned the inside for him because it’s our mess so... Great communication too.
First time using Turo. Mohammed was great and accommodating. The car was as expected and our trip was made a lot easier using Turo versus a car rental company.
Michael was a great host and the car was in great condition when we received it. We’ll definitely continue to rent from Michael whenever we’re in Seattle, it’s a no brainer!
Amazing car, price, service and convenience! Best rental car experience in my life.
We love our whole travel experience in Seattle and it wouldn’t be possible without Aureliu’s car. He’s really good at communicating as well. Very nice man and really helpful. The car was in good condition and very clean. The brakes feel brand new and it definitely made us feel safe during the trip. Thank you so much! Would definitely recommend and rebook when we come back!
Jon was v communicative and gave me a thorough tutorial as it was my first time driving a Tesla. The car was awesome! I’ll definitely be renting again for my next visit to Seattle!
Mainly stayed in the downtown area. Car handled great & was great size for downtown street parking. Great car. Great hosts. Would absolutely consider renting it out another time if I am ever in Seattle again!
Amazing host, amazing car! Would love to be Gaurav’s guest again for my next seattle trip!
Extremely helpful and amazing team. Aureliu and his team did an amazing job and was very comfortable to work with and very respectful. The car was running amazing no issues at all. I would definitely rent only from him when I need a car in Seattle again. Thank you
Tim was the best Turo rental I could have asked for! We’ve never used the app before but he made the transition so easy. He met us with chocolates and a nice note for pick up and made drop off a breeze. Highly recommend!! An amazing trip thanks to Tim!
Brad and Clair were both very accommodating and hospitable! The car was very clean and it was a pleasure to take it on my excursions while visiting the Seattle area. I would definitely rent from them again in the future.
I had a great experience with Jasvir and this car. It is very clean, gets great gas mileage, and is cheap to fill up. Jasvir was very quick to respond to our texts and questions. I would recommend this car and Jasvir to anyone coming to the Seattle area.
Michael is the best Turo host you could ever hope to come across. He is more than helpful during all aspects of the trip! As others have mentioned he oozes enthusiasm for automobiles and it was an absolute privilige and honor to be able to drive his Lotus. Thank you so much Michael for sharing your amazing cars!!
It’s like riding on a cloud, a short cloud, but a cloud all the same. Sadik’s car came clean and gassed! He met us at the airport for pick up and delivery, and both were seamless! Sadik was incredibly kind and punctual, and we couldn’t ask for anyone better. If I needed to rent a car again I would go with Sadik’s car every time. Plus, the subwoofers in the back definitely up the music listening experience! He also included a longboard which was dope; even if you just use it once it’s fun!
This was my first time using Turo, so I was a little nervous. Tristan was prompt, had great communication and the car was very clean and well maintained. This was a great rental experience and I will definitely do it again. I have already recommended Tristan and Turo to friends who visit the area frequently.
Roger was a great host. Flexible on pick up and drop off, and his car was clean and sanitized. Highly recommended fun and affordable way to travel in Seattle in a cool BMW. Thanks so much!
Our entire experience when renting Corey’s Model 3 was exceptional. The car was spotless, charged, and ready for our trip. This car is a dream for road trips. Charging was super convenient too (all placed near food and restrooms). No range anxiety here! And surprisingly smooth and quiet. I would 100% this car again.
This was a super fun little car. Perfect for Seattle’s tiny streets. Aureliu was easy to work with. Everything was smooth and simple. I highly recommend.
This was my second time renting Cole and Brittni’s fantastic Jetta. It was another easy airport exchange and the car was great - just the right amount of luxury.
Andreas’ Elantra was super clean and worked perfectly for my day trip to Skajit Valley. There was an issue with the original car I was going to rent but he took care of me and everything ran incredibly smooth! Thank you!
The Honda Fit is a zippy little car, and much bigger inside than it would appear. Very smooth ride from Seattle to Bellingham and back. Brandon is easy going, good to work with!
Car was exceptionally clean and super fun to drive! Pick-up and drop-off was seamless with no extra cost! I highly recommend this rental!
Mohammed was great! Very attentive. The car was clean and it was perfect for Seattle.
whitney was extremely accommodating and helpful in the stress of trying to navigate our trip to seattle. highly recommend!!
Definitely one of the best experience that I’ve had with Turo. Shawn and his buddy, Kyle were very prompt and accommodating with our trip. The car was clean and drives wonderfully. I would definitely reach out to both of them whenever we’re back in the area. Would recommend to anyone that wants to drive a superb car from great hosts.
Vasko is awesome! Communicative, clear, reliable peppy well maintained car that got me everywhere. He is my new go to Turo guy when in Seattle, he should be yours too!
Amazing vehicle! Would book again next time in Seattle area. Jon definitely made the trip smooth and easy!
Car drove great, really good gas mileage and Paul was the best host!! Responded quick and wanted to be of service any wa he could. Trip 10/10 would book again
Excellent car! Super clean!! Flowdy LLC was great and extremely accommodating. Will definitely be coming back to them for my next rental!!
This was the second trip with Rauhen and it was great. Thanks for accommodating the last min pickup location. The Mustang is still one of my favorite cars to drive.
It was an absolutely amazing car! It was so clean and smelt nice when I got it. Communication was great and knew if I had any questions I could count on getting a fast response! It made my stay in Seattle even better! They were very kind!
Rented this car for a weekend trip and it was perfect. Brandon is a very nice person. Thanks for the service.
My first time using an electric car and is pretty easy, and economic. Mr. Tristan is very nice, respectful, responsible, punctual and friendly. I recommend rent this car for sure! I enjoyed my trip with this car.
This car drives nice and is in good condition. Otto made the pickup and drop off convenient. It was much faster than using the SEATAC airport rental agencies.
This is a great car and the owners are very nice and communicative people. I would certainly use them again and recommend them to anyone visiting the Seattle area.
I usually rent the silver taurus but it was unavailable at the time. I love this car just as much as i like the taurus. Same features ( buttons, lights, switches, etc in the same places. Nothing different. Only major difference is there's no foot brake with this car.. it's hand brake...There's a trunk button on the keys but it doesn't pop open all the way. You have to also lift it up. The car charges your phone even when it's off. I like the phone mount that i got. It's steady and stable. My phone never fell off or shifted. Smooth engine transmission with no issues. Also, Hung accomodated me at the ending of my trip and picked up the car instead of me bringing it back at 10pm pitch black at night. I could've brought it back earlier but i didn't know when i would be done with my errands , etc! so thanks again!
Great little car, host was super communicative, wish the car had Bluetooth to play music and not only for calls, but, overall a great economic car for a nice little Seattle getaway with my wife 🌴
Had a great experience with Ricky and the sonic! Will rent again when back in Seattle!
This is a great car in new condition! Expect great power and style when you rent— and an owner who truly takes care of you. Mohammed is quick to communicate, flexible with pickup/drop off, and all around one of the reasons people like to use Turo for renting cars. You’ll love interacting with him and definitely be pleased with the car you drive!
Sean was an excellent host in accommodating my travel plans. Look forward to renting from him again & checking out the beautiful Seattle scenery! Thanks so much! 🤗
This was my first time using Turo and it was an awesome experience. Less stressful than booking through a major car rental company. Alex was quick to respond, flexible and really nice. Would definitely recommend!
Anish was great! The car was perfect! The best car rental experience I have ever had. Thank you again for making my business trip more enjoyable.
Best car rental experience ever. The car is super clean, and Anish is very nice.
Wow! Booking with Tristan was 1000x better than renting a car from the airport. He met us right at the arrivals area of the airport and we were on our way within seconds. The car drives so well and the trunk had a surprising amount of trunk space. We were able to fit two large, and two small suitcases. I would definitely book again!
Sadik was very Professional and respectful with my wife and I throughout our trip. The car was also very clean and well maintained. If you are looking for an easy/simple transaction and a clean vehicle, we recommend you go with Sadik! The longboard in the trunk made the trip even better!!
Second time renting a car from Quintin and a great experience again :) Check in and checkout was contactless with clear instructions. The car is clean and fun to drive. Will definitely rent again!
Tristan was great! Excellent at checking in and accommodating. The car was in like new condition. Great for short trips in the city.
Perfect trip, exceptional communication, pickup from airport, spotless car worth double the rate.
Adebayo was very nice and helpful. We booked a car last minute and he was able to meet us at the airport when we arrived. The car worked very well for our trip and he provided important information that we needed for caring for a hybrid. He also helped arrange for the car drop off earlier than expected. The only issue that we had was that we weren’t able to charge our phones in the car as we drove as the little adapters weren’t working. This was a great car for gas mileage. We only had to stop a few times during our trip to fill up which was perfect as we went to Mount Rainier National Park. Also, tip for anyone not familiar with SeaTac: Listen to the locals about the airport. We missed our plane departure. Adebayo had even mentioned it took a while and we didn’t plan enough time.
Bryan responded promptly, helped me to go through my first turo rent, the car was 100% charged and in excellent state. Enjoyed driving it very much! Thanks, Bryan!
Mr. Jordan was super helpful when picking up and dropping off the vehicle. The car was clean and smelled great! We would definitely rent from him again.
G Prez was so helpful. He dropped the car off at our house, and happily arranged to pick us up from a different location. The car was clean and full of gas. Thanks again!
Very smooth ride, very fuel efficient, German engineering. First drive in the car you’ll notice the steering wheel has a slight downward curve that easily fits those who drive with a single hand at 12 o’clock. Three different driving modes for every occasion. Sport mode is a dream while driving the curves around Mt Rainier. Backup camera helps a lot for downtown parallel parking. Bring a usb cord for Apple play or use the sat radio. Cole and Brittni were great with pickup and drop off. Would definitely rent from them again.
Jeremy was fast at responding and great working with! Made our trip worth it. Thank you!!! She even made me laugh. I would sooo rent from Jeremy again!!
Excellent car, great communication, easy pickup. Brad was super nice. Will rent from again!
Andreas' Priuses are my go-to cars in the neighborhood: easy access, great mileage, and spotless interiors.
Ayo was AWESOME!!! Our first time using Turo - it could not have been easier. Ayo was very friendly, punctual, responds to text messages promptly. Couldn’t ask for more!! We rented the Acura TLX - very clean, sporty, handled well - no issues at all. I highly recommend renting your next car from Ayo 🤙🤙 Ayo - see you next time we are in WA 😎😎
My first time using Turo, and Rodney made it very easy. I would book with him any other time I’m in Seattle for sure.
This was my first time using Turo and it went flawlessly. Ryan was very responsive, and the car was great! I would definitely choose this car again for future trips.
Christopher was a great host. I had to extend my trip a couple times and he was more than helpful. His car rides amazing and I had a great trip! Thanks again! Will go back if needed 😃
Excellent experience! Ryan was wonderful to work with and had an awesome vehicle. I will use him again when I come visit Seattle again!
Spectacular car with a great owner! Ernest was very kind, helpful, courteous, friendly, and dependable! The service was exemplary. I will absolutely rent another car from Ernest in the future. 😁👍🏼
