I was disappointed by 2 rental car companies and Patrick saved my weekend. Thanks again for going out of your way to accommodate me. You are much appreciated and I will rent the next time I need a car rental in Atlanta.

Patrick was very easy to work with and agreed to deliver the car to the airport on very short notice. I would definitely rent a car through him on Turo again! Thanks!

Hit the road

Atlanta has all the trappings of a big city, but it’s easy to jump into your Atlanta car rental alternative to reach lush forests, impressive bodies of water, and charming Georgia towns in no time.

Chattahoochee River National Recreation Area

Head north of the city in your Atlanta car rental alternative to take one of the many great river hikes, like the East Palisade trail, or get on the water in a tube or kayak.

Rental cars in ATlanta were scarce and very expensive. I decided to try Turo. and was pleasantly surprised. It worked like a champ and saved me on exorbitant price gouging from the rental car companies.

The trip went very well. Blake was very friendly and met me at the airport right after my plane landed. The drop off was very convenient after my trip was over. Using Turo was much quicker and affordable compared to renting a car the traditional way at an airport. Would definitely rent from Blake in the future when I come back to Atlanta.

First time using Turo, and I am a fan. I am a fan because Ivan was great. Rented his Tesla Model 3 for a trip from Atlanta to Tennessee. Incredible and fun car. The car was clean. Ivan took his time to explain the car's features. He also setup a secondary account on the Tesla app, making it very easy to lock and control the car's features. We hit a couple superchargers in Tennessee and Acworth, making the trip smooth. Would highly recommend Ivan and his model 3. Thanks again Ivan and great job.

It was my second time renting from Auto and I will definitely be renting from them again. I unfortunately got a flat tire during my trip and Don with Auto made sure that I was assisted and assured. He is always extremely helpful and kind! I’m always happy when I rent with them and I highly recommend them for anyone’s car rental needs in Atlanta.

BMW i8 2017
Man, what a beautiful and dynamic but still very drivable car. Gets a ton of attention at downtown intersections, and dissolves a ton of stress on long stretches of empty highway and curving backroads. And you can’t argue with the plus parking at charging stations. Add to all of the appealing qualities of this car one amazing host. Rashad went above and beyond to make sure my trip and my experience with this unfamiliar and nontraditional rental were superb. I would absolutely contact him again on future Atlanta visits to drive this i8 or any other cars he might offer.

Great car. Ross was super easy to work with and definitely knows good way around the Atlanta airport. I’m glad I rented from him.

Renting from Reid was an amazing experience. He was very friendly, communicated well and was always there to address any questions. He has this really cool text app that controls some features of the car that we found very useful. If you want great customer service along with the safest and most fun car to drive then Reid is your guy! We look forward to renting from him again the next time we are in Atlanta.

First off, Josh was super accommodating with our last-minute booking! We were in town for the weekend and didn’t get a chance to book a car until we arrived in Atlanta at 6am. He was very flexible with our times and drop off/pickup location. The car itself was a fun ride, super clean, and fit the bill for our leisurely road trips around the state. Josh provides (super long) charging cables and a dock for your phone, which was super convenient. I highly recommend booking with Josh!

Kyle’s VW cc really enhanced our trip. This was the first time I’ve rented through Turo and I was a little wary. However, this experience far exceeded my expectations! It was super easy and convenient to pick-up. The car itself was in fantastic condition and basically spotless. It was fun to drive and much cooler than the standard rental cars I’ve gotten in the past. Kyle was super flexible when we needed to push back our pick-up time. He was also very easy to communicate with! I highly recommend renting from Kyle. Thanks again, Kyle!
Emily R. - July 25, 2018
Volkswagen Jetta 2017
We had to book a car at Atlanta Airport with VERY short notice. I was able to get a great car in Atlanta for half of the price of the car rental we usually use and we didn't have to get on a tram and ride around to the car rental area! They bring the car directly to you in one hour parking. This whole process could not have been more convenient. You must read the instructions very thoroughly for the process to go smoothly.
Kory C. - November 5, 2018

First time renting with Turo and Joe made it an amazing experience. Way better than a regular car rental. I would recommend this every time. Hope to rent from Joe again in the future.

This was my first time using Turo and I'm pleased I chose one of Janith's cars. During my flight to Atlanta I got online to book my car with a traditional rental agency. To my surprise not a single car was available. I was in shock. I then did a search for auto rental outside of the airport when I found Turo. It was so simple to use and navigate a car choice. Janith was a pleasure to work with. She accommodated my last minute rental. She delivered it curbside of my terminal. I got in the car and went to my meetings. The car was super clean and beautiful. The return was equally as easy. I will be renting from Janith on my next trip to Atlanta. Thank you Janith for making my first experience a great one. I will no longer use traditional car rental. If I have the option I will use Turo.

This was a very convenient way to rent a car from the airport. Wesley’s instructions were detailed and easy to follow which made everything smooth. The Hyundai was great! No issues and a very nice ride. Very fuel efficient! I would most definitely rent from Wesley again. Thank you!!

Lin's BMW was the perfect combination of luxury and sport. I came to Atlanta to perform at a concert and it felt like I was driving in-style all the way to the venue. The trunk had plenty of space for a lot of big luggage and the car came very clean and pristine. I would definitely recommend Lin's car.
Jeremy M. - August 4, 2019
Mercedes-Benz C-Class 2015
Great car and great communication. Steve picked me up from the airport within minutes of me walking out to the curb. We went to a well lit spot to get the needed Turo pictures and I was on my way faster than any rental before. I had lots of traffic to deal with on my way back to the airport and Steve was very understanding. Will rent again when in Atlanta!
Mark W. - November 9, 2019

This was my first rental using Turo and I must say it was an AMAZING experience. I would much rather use this app over major rental car agencies. I honestly had the best rental experience with Special Occasion, very welcoming and professional. Anytime I visit Atlanta I will definitely reach out to Special Occasion 1st.

Emily was a life saver! She got back to me right away late on Christmas Eve and set me up for a rental in her Altima. She was very quick with her communication the next morning as well. The pickup was super easy and the car was in great shape! She was also very flexible when my plans changed as well.

We flew into Atlanta to visit my 92-year-old Mom in Gainesville. Vernon’s Elantra was an inexpensive choice and gave us additional flexibility for our visit. The car was tidy, instructions regarding pick-up and drop-off were impeccable, and Vernon is a great host. Five stars.

They were awesome! The check in process was simple and the car had just been detailed when I picked it up. They were very responsive when I had questions, reached out to me frequently to make sure all was well with my experience and even allowed me to extend my rental period with no hassle when I had a last minute change to my schedule. I’m a fan! I’ll definitely be using Auto Maniacs again!

Andrea C. - February 4, 2019

This was my first time renting a car and using Turo. It was a completely stress free experience. Kam met us at the airport for pick up and drop off, and was very understanding of our confusion with the maze of the Atlanta airport and didn’t mind when we were running late. The car ran great, and being a hybrid it got great mileage. It beats traditional car rental any day.

Best Atlanta driving roads

The Suches Loop

Running in a circle through the Chattahoochee National Forest and Blue Ridge Mountains, this route, known as “Georgia’s Dragon,” challenges drivers with more than 50 miles of tight turns and elevation changes.

North Georgia Scenic Highway 197

More scenic than daring, this highway runs by three lovely Georgia lakes and was once the preferred route of bootleggers during prohibition, which is to say it’s a less crowded drive.

Appalachian Foothills Parkway

Wind through the North Georgia mountains on the exciting twists of GA 515 and GA 52 toward Ellijay to catch striking views of the Amicalola Falls and Brasstown Bald Peak.
