Zilker Park

Potentially the most attractive feature of Austin, Zilker Park is home to Lady Bird Lake for excellent hiking and biking, the epic Barton Springs Pool, and iconic festivals like Austin City Limits.

The Continental Club

With six decades of history on this stage, this club is the heart of Austin’s famous music scene, so put on your most respectable dancing shoes and get ready to boogie next to someone famous.

Congress Bridge

You know a city is unpretentious when one of the favorite local activities is gathering at sunset to watch millions — yes, millions — of bats flutter to life and take off from this beautiful bridge.

Skip the rental car counter

Hit the road

While there are other big cities you can easily get to from Austin, book your Austin car rental on Turo so you don’t miss these favorite local getaways.

Longhorn Cavern

It’s not everyday you get to explore underground caves carved out by a river. Make the one-hour drive in your Austin car rental for the mild walking tour or the wild spelunking adventure.

Dripping Springs

Just a 45-minute drive in your Austin car rental, the name of this city really says it all. Go for a swim in the totally unreal sparkling waters at the natural Hamilton Pool, and explore the historic downtown.


This little town is packed full of Texan specials, including two incredible swimming holes — Blue Hole and Jacob’s Well — and the Bella Vista Olive farm. Hop in your Austin car rental for the 45-minute drive.

Jason’s Mazda was perfect for our trip to Austin. Jason dropped the car off right outside our gate to the airport and gave clear instructions on returning the vehicle. SO much easier than going the traditional route of renting a vehicle. The car was clean, he even provided water bottles for us. Definitely recommend. Such a great value.
Nadia A. - January 11, 2020

Clean car. May responds very quickly first time using Turo while my car is in the shop. Much better than going to a car rental.

Trey was very flexible with our flight being delayed, and our slight offset in departure time. Trey's car was actually nicer to drive than the Cadillac we rented on our last vacation from a normal car rental. Picking up airport curbside and on our way in 5 minutes is lightyears better than the traditional car rental experience. 5 stars!

Best renter on turo. If you're looking to rent a car, you have to go with May.

Everything worked perfectly. Zuhair is the best host someone can imagine. He answered immediately to my messages and has been during the whole rental willing to help me. Furthermore he let me change the hour to bring the car back, so the flexibility was awesome. The car was perfectly cleaned and he did everything he said he was going to do (full tank, location, hours...). Really looking forward to rent a car with him again. Seriously, everything was perfect.

BMW M-Series 2019
Everything about the experience renting Pavel’s M5 Competition from him was AWESOME!! He was there waiting for us when we got our bags at the airport, and even agreed to meet us at 4:15 AM the day we flew back out— THAT is some serious customer service right there!!!! He even took the time to sit with us in the car and show us how all of the new tech worked— Seat massagers, ///M buttons on the steering wheel, iDrive/touchscreen/gesture control, setting up Bluetooth phone for hands-free/ music streaming w/ BMW’s new Apple CarPlay, etc.— I was (actually!) a BMW Client Advisor ten years ago, and Pavel took more time and effort to help get us acclimated than I’ve witnessed many other high line sales people do when ‘delivering’ a car they’ve sold to customers!! Anytime we reached out to him, he always got back to us promptly. And don’t even get me started on the M5 Competition itself… you should have seen the looks on valets’ and everyone else’s faces when revving the engine and hearing the amaaazing exhaust... it handles like a dream! (And I’ve been lucky to have driven many BMWs and high-line cars having worked in the business!!) Was joking with my wife that we might have to make another trip out to Austin, just specifically to rent Pavel’s M5 Competition from him again!!!! Seriously THE best car, and THE best guy to rent from!!!!
Jeremy S. - November 5, 2019
Volkswagen Passat 2013
I rented Juan’s Passat for a long weekend trip to Austin. Overall it was a good first rental experience. I paid extra to have the car dropped off at the airport because I was traveling with my 3-year old son and the car seat is a pain. (WORTH IT to get airport pickup!) We communicated via the app and the pickup was fine. Helped me load all my luggage and was very friendly. Be prepared to spend a little extra time if you do airport pickup because you will have to go to drop off the person who is dropping off the car. This was fine for me because I wasn’t in a huge rush, but should have been communicated beforehand. The car was super clean — only downside was it was hard to get the car to lock from the key fob. It locked fine but you had to press down on the lock button really hard multiple times. Also the breaks started to squeak on my last day with the car. Again, not a huge deal, but wasn’t expected given that the car is not that old. Very friendly people and made my trip to Austin smooth and easy. Despite these small critiques of the car itself, I would definitely rent from Juan again!
Kaitlin L. - October 28, 2019

It was very easy to communicate with Krista. We arrived earlier than expected and was able to pickup the car earlier accordingly. The car was so clean that you would think it came straight out of a dealer. It was so much fun to drive and price was much more reasonable than what you would get from a typical rental agency.
Ahmet Hakan C. - December 29, 2019
Nissan Sentra 2013
Car was fine for our week family visit. The communication prior to, during, and after was excellent. The drop off and pick up were excellent and made our trip much easier than lines at the rental car or searching a parking lot for a Turo car. Aida met us both coming and going exactly as indicated.
Larry H. - December 28, 2019

Let me start by saying this is a SUPER HOST! I had a last second trip and was impressed by the response time and flexibility. ATX is super understanding and even threw in additonal free miles because I was taking an extended trip. He also worked with me to help me find the cheapest option while renting his car. Thank you so much!! You're a lifesaver. Would recommend to absolutely everyone!
Jason M. - December 28, 2019

It was an absolute pleasure dealing with Zuhair & the lady who were helpful & communicative before i booked & even more after I did.

Zuhair is an amazing host! I rented his corvette which was the newest model and the most cost effective of all the corvette’s on the website.

Ryan was fantastic. Instructions and communication were top notch. Pick up and drop off were seamless. The car was great in cleanliness and performance. I had to extend my stay in Austin at last minute and Ryan was on the ball with an other vehicle for the duration of my extended stay. I would highly recommend Ryan to other users for their Turo needs in Austin.
Gerard L. - December 25, 2019

Pradeep made this trip easy and painless. I had a recall notification in the mail about my current car and didn’t want to risk driving it to Houston. This last minute booking made this trip great. His car was very clean. Easy to pick up and drop off. Constant communication. Complimentary water. I would book from Pradeep again. No headaches here.
Peter Z. - December 26, 2019

May is wonderful! Personable, professional, and accommodating. I rented from her almost a year ago, and she remembered exactly who I was, she messaged me as soon as I booked to say hello again. Just like last time, the vehicle was clean, in great shape, and had all the bells and whistles, including in-dash GPS, and Bluetooth for my phone. It also had extra personal touches, like a magnetic mount for my phone, and a charging cable. May is always going to be my first choice to rent from here in Austin. A+++!

Wes was an absolute legend- he dropped the car off at the airport and on return met us to collect. He made is easy hassle free with a great reliable clean car (plus genie pass to clean it) The car was a dream so much that we joked about trading our suv for a Prius. Thank you Wes for the great rental - highly recommend!!! Won’t be disappointed.
