Blown away
in the Windy City

Chicago favorites Favorites

Chicago has been a bustling city for centuries, so get in your Chicago car rental for a taste of the past and the present. When you’re maxed out on big attractions, don’t forget to see what’s brewing around the corner in your neighborhood.

Millennium Park

Head over to The Loop to see Anish Kapoor’s famed Cloud Gate sculpture (known fondly as The Bean) and the striking Crown Fountain, then catch one of the park’s free shows.

Wrigley Field

The ivy-covered walls of the Chicago Cubs’ legendary stadium give it that old-school baseball vibe, but with all of the quality concessions that make a luxurious day at the ball game.

The Green Mill

Originally established in 1907, it’s one of the oldest and most beautiful bars in the city, and you can still sidle in for excellent jazz and poetry slams.

Jesse was great! We accidentally booked a car starting a day later than we meant to, and Jesse was super flexible. He got us in another car that and let us keep that car for the whole trip rather than making us switch to the car we originally reserved. I would definitely get a car from him again.

I will rent from Jesus EVERY time I’m in Chicago! I have to admit, I was a little hesitant to try Turo, but I love Air BnB, and this is like Air BnB for cars! So glad I tried it. Just like Air BnB, TRUST THE REVIEWS. I chose Jesus because his reviews were so outstanding, and they did not disappoint. He was kind, courteous, helpful, accommodating, and had excellent communication, which is such an asset when you’re in a new city. If you’re looking at other renters, STOP. THIS IS YOUR GUY.

Skip the rental car counter

Hit the road

When you’ve had your share of Chi-town adventures, rev the engine in your Chicago car rental and see what the surrounding Chicagoland area has to offer.

Starved Rock State Park

Hop in your Chicago car rental for the quick 100-mile drive to this beautiful park, well-known for its many dramatic sandstone canyons and waterfalls carved about by glaciers.

Indiana Dunes National Park

Make the hour and a half drive to the southern shores of Lake Michigan in a Chicago car rental to find pristine beaches, towering sand dunes, and wild marshland.

Milwaukee, WI

Smaller than Chicago, but arguably just as fun, Milwaukee is home to all variety of festivals and museums, proud sports teams, and renowned breweries — and it’s only a two-hour drive north in a Chicago car rental.

Will has great car. I always wanted to drive one. This Turo gave me the oppertunity. In the past I would use the major car rental companies and it always turned into a hassle one way or the other. “Will” took care of that also while juggling a couple of unforscene problems. When you rent a car from “Will” he has a good support system so it’s not just him , that’s why I definitely am going to use him in the future.

My first time using Turo and Christopher made the experience just what I needed to ditch the standard rental car companies. To start with his model S is beautiful and like stated is extremely fast. He was flexible with our delayed flight and the car was easy to pick up at the airport. He was willing to give us pointers with the car if needed and has fantastic customer service. After our trip we dropped the car off at the parking garage convenient to our departure terminal and he took care of it from there. Pick up and drop off was way easier than a standard rental car return. Thanks again for a wonderful experience and if we are back in Chicago I will be using you again.

Shalom was very easy to work with. His car was awesome and fun to drive and was perfect for getting our little family around for our trip. He provided the car seat we needed and was also very flexible when our flight schedule changed and we couldn’t meet in person for pickup. He very thoughtfully reimbursed us for some necessary parking for a smooth pickup. The car was ready for us to use and even had helpful details like sunglasses and phone chargers. This was our first time using Turo to rent a car and Shalom made it a wonderful first experience!

Eric is a very solid communicator, and I really appreciated the ease of picking up at O’Hare! The Prius is a fine car and I saved money on gas and just simply the rental. I’m very glad Eric is part of Turo. It helps my Chicago family visits to be able to afford a car and be independent.

Tianshuang is a super example of the best of Turo. He has a great selection of cars, great prices and great service, and he runs his business well. The other people I met who were renting from him had similar stories to tell of how he did better for them than anyone else. Turo is about cars, but it is about freedom and greater options and opportunity. Turo is about the democratization of car rental. Renting from Tianshuang was a great small business and freedom experience. When I return to Chicago I absolutely will be using Turo, and Tianshuang again.

This was my first time using Turo & Michael was amazing! If I had any questions he answered them back in a timely manner, he was very nice, the car was perfect for what I needed out of my trip. I would/will definitely be contacting Michael again when using turo. By using Turo, I was able to pay almost more than half of what a car rental would’ve charged me from the airport. This was a great experience I would definitely recommend trying the Turo app to friends & family. Pick up & drop off at he airport was a breeze, I didn’t have to deal with any paperwork like at a car rental place or anything. If you’re in Chicago definitely contact Michael, he was awesome!

Adisa was on time and answered all questions within minutes or seconds. I will definitely book this car again if available in the Chicago area. This was my first Turo trip and Adisa explained everything perfectly. I don’t think I ever want to rent a car from a rental company again. Adisa made this service awesome.

I’ve rented from Dee several times now. His cars are always clean, rates fair, and he and his wife are always so nice and easy to work with. This is the first time I rented his Lexus and the car was awesome! Clean and fully loaded! Heated/cooling seats, Navigation, Moonroof, etc. AND it’s a luxury All-Wheel Drive sedan—perfect for Chicago! Thanks again Dee for another phenomenal experience! I’m happy to see your fleet grow so I have multiple dependable options when I’m in town for work.

Tianshuang‘s 7 series is the definition of perfect for Turo trip. This car is amazing. The moment you start it you immediately feel the elegant of the luxury BMW. Head up display, M sport packages etc really make me feel like Tom Cruise of the mission impossible. The flat Matte black paint is beautifully unreal!! Draw a lot of attention when we get to the club. Tianshuang is amazing! He is super flexible and a clear and responsive communicator. Renting from him is really hustle free. I will only rent from him when I came to Chicago.
ZEHUA W. - October 27, 2018

I was a little skeptical about driving a Mercedes for that cheap price. I was thinking either the car wouldn’t be good or it’s a scam. But honestly, Steve is an amazing gentleman to do business with. I still can’t believe I drove such a beautiful vehicle for that price. Steve over communicated to get me up to speed on schedule and also made sure everything was going well while I had the vehicle. This is my first trip with Turo and Steve has really given me a very good first impression. Thank you Steve for all your help. I’ll make sure to find you whenever I come to Chicago. I highly recommend Steve to everyone who wants to enjoy riding in a beautiful luxury car for less.
MAXWELL T. - April 23, 2019

Everything went smoothly. Pickup directions and location were clear. I met Victor at Speedpark in Chicago for drop off and he drove me to the airport. Overall really good experience. Very cheap alternative to renting.

Garrett was wonderful! Super responsive from start to finish and was flexible with pick-up and drop-off time. But the best part was that the car was in perfect condition! It was super clean, well maintained and gave me the sense of comfort that I wouldn't have to worry about anything going wrong with it while I was on my trip. Also loved the new heated seats that he just added to the car. Would 100% rent from him again!

This was my first TURO experience and what a pleasure it was right from the beginning all the way thru until checkout! I flew into Chicago and was a little nervous about taking public transportation to get the car but followed the instructions provided and even received a phone call to make sure I was okay! It was easier than I thought. The car was perfect, ran great, was a great price and I couldn’t have asked for anything more! I will definitely be using Dmitry and his very lovely wife again as they were amazing and very helpful during my trip! They are saved in my favorites! 😊

I give Louis my highest recommendation on Turo. He is without a doubt a top star host. I had a last minute rental and he came through for me instead of canceling like most other renters do. Luxurious and clean ride for a reasonable price. Pick up and drop off is in a nice neighborhood. If your in Chicago or visiting rent from him.
Cherelle C. - January 7, 2020

My man Matt coming in clutch again with the Corvette. Second time I take a day trip out from Boston to Chicago this month, this time celebrating my wife’s birthday. Great service like before and the car was immaculate. I wont be back to Chicago again for a while but if I do go back I have no reason to go to a rental place. I will absolutely recommend Matt to all my family and friends if they are ever around town and need to rent a car.

Cristian was so far my best Turo host yet, and I’ve touro’d about 100 cars. The car was clean, and an excellent value. His pickup and drop-off charge was a great value, and he worked around my constantly changing schedule to accommodate me. He even offered to deliver the car with personalized items my wife and I might want from the store upon our arrival. I won’t rent a car from anyone else in Chicago without making sure his cars aren’t already booked first.

Tianshuang was great! This was my first turo rental and it was easier than I expected. It's nice to get picked up and taken to his warehouse so that you can avoid being the one who is driving in the airport traffic. The car was clean, he explained everything, and responded quickly with any questions we have. If I come back to Chicago I will definitely rent a car through him again.
Tammy S. - September 29, 2019

Dima was amazing. First time using the service. My wife flys to chicago frequently and uses Dima and said it has been seamless. So I decided too. Much better than your big car rental services and it was the service and communication
Christopher K. - February 11, 2019
Toyota Camry Hybrid 2008
Easier than using a car rental agency. John was wonderful. Let us use GPS holder without charge, cell phone cords and charger without charge and his electronic toll pass that we pay him back for tolls. These small conveniences add up. He's just great to work with making an easier trip. Great vehicle too super clean.

Booking with Mohammed was a great experience. he is excellent at communication and the drop-off and pick-up was very simple there's no doubt in my mind next time I rent a car from turo I will reach out to Muhammad first. Trust me you won't be disappointed.
Michael B. - November 29, 2019

Steve is a good businessman and a great guy. Renting a vehicle from him is better than any rental service, the pure essence of luxury just corses through you when riding in one of his BMW or Mercedes models. Will only rent from him when in Chicago!
Ridge R. - April 10, 2019
Nissan Versa 2012
He genuinely deserves this 5 star review. I had a long trip and his car was perfect, drove great and Muhammad was in quick response for questions. I had to adjust my trip at the end and he was more then accommodating, just wanting to make sure I got back safe. I would definitely rent from him again
Max B. - December 31, 2019

Loved renting from Adrian, he was very nice and respectful plus super responsive with communication. He tried to make sure the car accommodated everything we needed which it did. The best part was the close proximity of the vehicle to MDW which we flew into. Will definitely rent the Acura TSX from him again.
Adam R. - January 1, 2020

Noe was an outstanding host when it came to renting his vehicle. Great communication and punctuality were his top traits but the overall experience was something I can look forward to as a driver for the future. His car was a beauty and she handled well, I was just impressed with the overall trip. I highly recommend that if you are looking for a car to drive and can’t decide on which one, choose Noe’s, you will not regret it.

We rented Eric’s Passat for our Christmas Vacation. The car was great- clean, in good shape and very comfortable. Eric was super to work with. Pick up/drop off at O’Hare was a clear and easy process. Eric was very communicative and extremely helpful. I can highly recommend renting from Eric!

Best Chicago driving roads

Illinois Route 66

Built in 1926, this historic drive still boasts some sections of brick-paved road, and for a blast from the past, pull your Chicago car rental into a retro diner or filling station.

Galena, IL

Head 150 miles east from Chicago to find this hilly area full of stunning vistas and exciting twists and turns that will let your Chicago car rental show its stuff.

Spoon River Valley

Hop in your Chicago car rental and drive west along the Illinois River for the 140-mile scenic drive into the Spoon River Valley. You’re bound to find antiques, festivals, and homemade treats along the way.
