We were pleasantly surprised at the mileage! Drove all over the island for a week and only burned one tank of gas. Pick up and drop off were very simple and quick and a short Uber ride to the airport in a location where an Uber driver picked us up within two minutes. Everything went very smooth with Peter. Very nice experience. We would rent from Peter again next time we go to Kauai.

Absolutely awesome experience with this host! From the ease of pickup and drop off, to the vehicle itself, everything deserves five stars. It surprisingly got pretty good MPG for being an SUV and was the perfect vehicle for exploring the natural beauty of Phoenix and surrounding parks. If I’m ever back down this way, I’d love to book it again!

First time using this alternative car rental app. It is very convenient especially at the Denver international airport. You avoid having to get on a shuttle, go to the rental car center, wait in line, and risk them telling you they are out of cars lol. Also same deal with returning the car. Much more convenient!!!!

Much thanks!

Agustin was so easy to work with, a very nice young man who pays attention to detail. I even wanted to return the car four or five hours early and he didn’t blink an eye. His vehicle was in excellent condition and he even left water and snacks. As far as customer service I reached out to him one night. I had five people in the car and couldn’t locate the seat belt for the person in the middle rear back seat. He sent me several photos of different angles of its location and how to operate it, it was great problem solved one two three. This Turo is a great idea, makes car rental enjoyable. If you want it to be even easier I highly recommend Augustin. Thanks Augustin nice dealing with you and even better was meeting you, thanks again.
