We are so happy with our experience with Turo and Jason’s vehicle! We didn’t run into any problems with pickup/drop off. The car was clean and well taken care of. GREAT gas mileage. Only filled up once in 5 days with multiple trips between Denver & Colo Sprngs
Kaylan - December 29, 2019
The absolute best car rental service I have ever had! From the moment of checking online for information to the moment of leaving the shuttle at the airport! Thank you Jason!

Excellent! Beginning to end, flawless. The car was perfect. David was a diligent host and communicator. Better, cheaper and faster than through traditional car rental.

Perfect car for Denver! Had a lovely trip and it was made better by having a reliable and clean car.

Elliston's impreza was very comfortable for a family of four. Clean, quiet, great milage, blue tooth, apple car play, iPhone and Android charger and Aux wires, lots of storage in trunk. Elliston handed us the key with all needed information about the car and we were off in less than five minutes compared to standing in line at car rental. Return was also super easy and hassle free. Best car to drive up the mountains. Best perpson to rent a car in Denver.

We rented Vlad's car for our week long Denver vacation and I feel like it was the best choice for trip. Vlad was very friendly and accommodating and the car was in perfect condition upon pick-up. If you are looking to rent a car in Denver, I highly recommend Vlad's Mercedes!

Kyle was very flexible and accommodating, allowing me to borrow his car earlier than our reservation due to an unexpected long layover. He provided a detailed message with everything needed to make pick up and drop off seamless. I would definitely recommend Kyle and Turo to anyone looking for a quick and convenient car rental in Denver!

This is the best possible person you could rent from and I had a blast in my car rental. I’m serious: this rental is better than any you have had before. If your thinking about pulling the trigger, just do it! This man is a pro at turo and I guarantee you will have a pleasant time renting it

Everything went smoothly, and the car was fine. It was faster than getting a regular rental car at Denver international Airport. Surprised my sceptical wife and kids. The máxima had a big enough trunk to fit everything we had. César did a great job communicating and making everything easy.

My husband and I had never used Turo before, but we thought Ryan had a cool selection of cars suitable for our day plans. We decided to give it a go and are so glad we did! His communication with us was transparent and although we ran a few minutes late in picking it up, Ryan was so cool about it all. The Audi was smooth, reliable, and you can tell it was well taken care of overall! We’ll definitely be booking our rentals through him (rather than the way overpriced car rental companies) every time we are in Denver from now on!

Tesla Model 3 2019
2nd day on my first trip to the US, with my head still figuring out the many differences including the time zones and driving rules, I needed a car that doesn’t add to my headaches. Michael’s Tesla certainly didn’t. The simplicity of the controls and the great drivability had made it so much fun and less stressful to drive on the foreign roads. The host Michael was a cool guy too. Excellent communications, easy pickup & return. It’s just overall a much more pleasant experience than hiring a car from your usual car rental companies.

Renting Trevor's car was a breeze. The pickup and drop-off process was easier than most traditional rental cars. We had a great time with the Model 3 and would highly recommend checking it out if you're interested in Tesla and need a car in the Denver area.

Son
Tesla Model S 2018
The overall experience is amazing. We landed, took the shuttle to airport parking and picked up the car. The Tesla model S was really clean and had 280+ miles on battery. Driving a Tesla is a completely exceptional experience, like driving the future. The price is affordable, I cant rent a model S anywhere else with 90$/day, just 50% more than the gasoline cars but I do not have to pay the gas. Will definitely use their service again if I ever have to rent a car in Denver.

Bill
Tesla Model S 2018
The vehicle was parked off site which isn’t a big deal because all rental cars are. Be sure to tell the shuttle driver that you are picking up a Turo. They pretty much had the vehicle waiting for us. The car itself is amazing. We were running a little late for our flight and returning the car was a breeze.

Andre

We were feeling down bc all the big car rental companies were closing shop early on Sunday while we had plans to bag a 14er the next morning, and what was available would blow our vacay budget. First time using Turo and it was perfect. Pick up and drop off couldn't have been easier, completely affordable, and Corey was awesome. He met us at 5 am Monday morning to hand us the keys - can't get more flexible than that!!!

I was so worried about where to rent that when I found this listing, I jumped without much thought and I have to say: I DON'T REGRET IT! Awesome gas mileage, easy pick up location which is a much cheaper option to Uber than have it delivered. First time driving a Prius and I'm sold. Best car rental ever!

I rented Jennifer’s car to drive to the mountains around Denver in winter conditions. The AWD was indispensable, and this car is definitely the nicest I’ve driven; super smooth, very powerful, and feels very secure. Jennifer was also very accommodating with pickup and drop off of the car at the airport, which was very convenient for me. Finally, this is the best value I’ve ever gotten out of a rental car. Would 100% rent again, in winter or summer. Would be super fun to cruise through Colorado in this car. Thanks Jennifer!

Claire

This was our first time using Turo and William was nothing short of accommodating. Pickup was straightforward and easy from the airport and the car was very well kept. We had some car troubles a couple days into our trip and William drove an hour from Denver to our location to help us out and switch out cars with us. We were very impressed with the customer service and really appreciate the flexibility. Would recommend renting from William to anyone!

Matthew is the best! I’ve rented from Matthew twice and one other owner in Denver. His cars are always super clean. Communication with Matthew is always easy. If you need a car in Denver use Matthew. You won’t be disappointed.

If you ever need to "rent a car" Turo should be your first choice. They made this so much simpler than ANY commercial car rental company EVER did. The car was exactly what we needed and the price was significantly less than any company's lowest sale price.

BMW 3 Series 2015
So this was my first experience with Turo. I picked Ben’s BMW 328i for both its looks and for the extra power it provided on I-70. I couldn’t have been happier with the whole process. The checkin process was incredibly smooth and efficient. No paperwork and no hassles from the staff trying to upsell me on insurance, etc. I am sold on Turo and, if I have a choice, I’m not going back to the old car rental companies again.

Harley’s Mini Countryman was a great car, perfect for taking my son to camp in the foothills. This was my first Turo experience and I will be booking again. The Fine garage and pickup system is fantastic. Everything about the process was easy and oh so much better than working with car rental companies. Harley was a pleasure to work with. Can’t offer enough positives about this experience.

I am a BMW 500 series fan! It was a thrill to drive the 550i. I was Googling renting luxury cars and came across Turo. Half the price than other Denver luxury rentals. The VRBO of cars. I was a little apprehensive at first but Matt made it easy. There were only 4 pictures if the car but I can tell you it is immaculate inside and outside. A great ride! I will be his first review and I give him 10+!

- This was my first time ever renting a car let alone through Turo; While also renting a 2020 Tesla Model 3!!! - Logan was everything you want for an exceptional and phenomenal experience renting a car. His communication & flexibility was second to none. He’s super relaxed and wanting his customers to have the best experience possible. If I come back to Denver, CO soon, I will certainly want to rent from him again. - HIGHLY RECOMMEND Logan for your Turo experience.

Renting Peyton’s car was everything a car rental experience should be. The car was flawless, pick up and drop off was a breeze, and Peyton’s communication was prompt and IMMEDIATE. He was also flexible on return time when we were stuck in traffic and late. This experience was easier and better than renting from any car rental company and I will definitely rent from Peyton again if I come to Denver. Thank you Peyton!

I’ve never used Turo before, but with the lack of available rental cars, I figured I would give this a try. And I’m so glad I did! The reservation process was very easy. We reserved a Tesla Model S, which was also a first for me. Double bonus! That car was amazeballs!! I’ve heard the rumors about its performance and I was literally blown away. My problem now is that I want to buy one! The owner was very responsive and stayed in touch with me throughout the trip. He was very helpful and made my experience very pleasant. I would definitely reserve a car through Turo again! I highly recommend it!

Alexis
Toyota Corolla 2009
Turo was $100 cheaper for my 3-day rental than typical car rental companies, and this was my first time using Turo, so I was pretty nervous. The car wasn't *perfectly* clean - there was dirt on the floor rugs - which was TOTALLY fine because I needed it to go on hiking trails and was not driving around in a fancy dress. The car didn't have any pick-up-and-go to it, but Denver is a pretty chill driving area in comparison to Chicago anyways, so I didn't have to worry about zipping in between people. Also, when leaving the parking lot, I was charged more than the $9.?? fee, and Tyler instantly gave me a refund. :) I'd do it again!

My first experience with Turo was OUTSTANDING! Everything was absolutely perfect! Don and his team were awesome! My car was sparkly clean and drove like a dream! Renting with Turo was so convenient. We were picked up at the curb upon arrival and were met at the curb for our return flight. Honestly, BEST experience I have every had with a car rental. Thanks so much Don and Jon! If we are ever coming to Denver again, you will be our first call.

My first time using the service was a pleasant surprise. The car was spotless and well kept. The Sirius radio and Bluetooth were a big plus. Jeff was friendly, personable and punctual. In the future I'll turn to Turo first for car rental and when traveling to Denver I'll look for Jeff's listing.

Flew out to Denver from the east coast for a wedding in Vail, CO. Edis made pick up and drop off really easy and convenient! The car blew away my expectations, from altitudes of 10,000ft-12,000ft through Rocky Mountain National Park to 14,000ft atop Pikes Peak! I would highly recommend car rental from Edis to anyone traveling into the Denver area.

Trevor was a great host and the Tesla was amazing. We had a great time showing off the car to friends and family - very sporty (the performance package was great). Pick up and drop off was smoother than conventional car rental for sure.

Corey worked around scheduling challenges to deliver and pickup with great convenience for us. Super responsive to texts. The Chevy Sonic is a basic compact car but was pretty much new, clean and roomy. I liked that it had Apple CarPlay and a decent size screen. A great alternative when all rental cars are sold out and the big companies jack rates through the roof. Really good first time experience with Turo and Corey.

Albert provided an excellent car. Even though i booked the trip not even a day in advance, he was very accommodating, flexible, and punctual.

Micah’s car was everything it described. It offered luxury, power, and that Denver swag we wanted. Micah has over powered his vehicle and we enjoyed it so much that we would rent it again on our next trip. We absolutely loved it that we want an AMG of our own. Amazing experience. Thank you!

This was my first time to use Turo as I only needed a car for a few hours as I few in and out of Denver on the same day. I asked allot of Q’s upfront as I didn’t want any misunderstandings and am used to my Hertz Presidents Circle membership but w/DIA “fees” they wanted $150+ and found an almost new Benz for under $20? No brainer to at least try it. Owner parks his car by all the other rentals so the shuttle (and driver) were awesome and getting there was a breeze. Only issue was that parking lot was being revamped and was closed - so at 6:30am was shuttled to the wrong parking lot. 2nd and more distressing issue now that I look back at all my preflight planning, is there was no location (bay number/location) given me. Just a lot that was closed? So what now? I emailed Turo support (no reply even today - 5 days later!!!!!!!) however the owner left 3 emergency phone numbers on my order summary. At 6:30am I wasn’t expecting much tbh and all 3 rolled to VM. But about 15 mins later Daryl did call my mobile but missed it b/c I’d left it in airplane/silent mode from my flight. He then text me with the new lot and Row # the car was in. Thankfully the Pikes Peak bus driver was kind and cool enough to go row by row by row to try to find the car out of thousands parked with no luck he then passed me off to a supervisor driving around in a SUV who took me to an adjoining lot (I’m guessing the company owns both?) and then Daryl’s text came in, we got the location and he took me directly there and sure enough, there it was. Thank god. So thanks to the Pikes Peak staff and for Daryl responding within 15 mins at the first sign of trouble. The car is slightly dated but as I told him, for $19 I’m not complaining. Drove and functioned very well. He insisted I wash it despite only using it for 4-5 hours so since my appt ended early I went to his wash company (he has a free account there) and washed it and once back at DIA I topped it up for $20 (tank was ⅞ full when I got it and you HAVE to use PREMIUM gas so be prepared for that $$) but that’s all part of renting a Mercedes. Thankfully I didn’t drive all that much but still says I used 4-5 gallons at 40mpg? Just proves the previous renter didn’t fill it full. The other thing is you have to pay Turos insurance + the Pikes Peak parking to EXIT ($8) + wash (time spent finding/doing all that) and refueling w/premium petrol (which I’d do with Hertz’s too so no big deal) however then at the car wash it was halfway thru when I was informed the account had expired last month meaning the car hasn’t been washed in 21 days otherwise he’d known about that - so had to text him the info and phone # and receipt etc but to Daryl’s credit, he rang the car wash within 5 mins and renewed the account and that got paid for (I’m still not sure on a $19 rental with a $25 wash how he makes any money???) but I’m not gonna look at gift horse in the mouth. :) Total expenditures for me were $33 plus $17 for gas and $5 tip so about $60 for the day... 1/2 what Hertz wanted... oh yeah plus Turos Insurance (despite me being covered by Amex Platinum and my own Allstate rental insurance) so Turo needs an option for ppl that have that (decline insurance) - I could have easily given Daryl or should I say this rental experience 2-3 stars but am giving it 5 stars b/c as a fellow business owner”s**t happens” and it’s entirely out of his control so I can’t fault him for that. The other thing that deserves 5 stars is Daryl and his attitude. I truly thought I was stranded in a sea of a thousand parked cars with no “Plan B” but within 30 mins (total) we’d talked on the phone a few times, he located the car in the alternate lot and he walked me thru his Benz as we have the same model but is different b/c it’s a older year and right hand steer in London and some tiny things weren’t working at first but then we figured it out in under a minute. He kept me calm. And he was cool about the situation and didn’t abandon me (I just had major back surgery so flew back to Denver for a check up that’s why I couldn’t hoof it thru a bunch of different parking lots looking for a car) and had to get to my appt by 8am (but I was still late sadly) but they still squeezed me in and out so it all worked out in the end. The car wash thing was a “what next!?” moment - but yet again, Daryl fixed it within 10 mins. Car looked great. Sadly we then sat on the tarmac for 2 hours as thunderstorms rolled thru so that wash went to waste so hopefully the next guy got a freebie seeing as it rained right after it got washed? I dunno. But Daryl is a stand up guy and when everything hit the fan, he came to the rescue - so as already said, he earned those 5 stars. If he’d slated me and left me stranded, I’d be typing an entirely different story and rating but he was super cool under pressure and if Turo ever gets back to me, I MAY consider using their app again. They def need to revisit their tech support, declining insurance (if driver has rental coverage) and where the location of the car is... I had no idea once I got to the lot. Daryl’s instructions were spot on he just didn’t know that the lot was being renovated. Otherwise things went pretty well. I’ve already thanked him offline but that’s my travels and experience in a nutshell. Good car. Great deal. And you know now what to ask for. Good luck. Thanks Daryl- you are the best despite the few bumps! Thank you!

Not only was the car everything we hoped for, but Michael's explanations for all things Tesla were the best. The car was polished outside, clean inside and fully charged. Since Tesla was a new experience for us, Michael took the time to show us all the necessities as well as many of the cool things that are so noteworthy of the Tesla. This was such an easy and enjoyable 24hr. rental that we have already recommended it to a friend.

This was my first time using Turo, and I have a feeling Lybi spoiled it for any rentals that follow. She is awesome, communicates really well, and could not have made the trip easier. I was worried about the logistics as compared to a rental car, but I really wanted to try a Tesla, so I was willing to put up with what I was thinking would be extra work to handle the details. It was actually much less work than a rental car and way more convenient. Lybi is a pro and has really got it down. Thank you!

We are so happy with our experience with Turo and Jason’s vehicle! We didn’t run into any problems with pickup/drop off. The car was clean and well taken care of. GREAT gas mileage. Only filled up once in 5 days with multiple trips between Denver & Colo Sprngs

Have been using Turo for several trips now. This is the first time we had to take a bus to an off-site facility. Not quite as awesome as getting picked up right at the terminal, but this was more convenient than picking up a rental car. Instructions for picking up the car is super detailed. Drop off instructions also super detailed. They check in with you regularly during your rental to make sure your happy and all questions are answered. That is great communication. The Mini we rented was clean, fun to drive, super fuel. It did have some damage to the front number and some door dings, so make sure you take those pictures before your trip. Overall great experience, will use again on next trip!

This was my first time using turo and it wont be my last. Edis made everything very smooth and easy. His car was amazing. We used his car to Denver, Aspen, Vail and A-basin. I was able to go through super extreme white out winter road conditions with ease. He even had a ice scrapper and snow brush which became the most important tool every day. The gas mileage on the car was amazing equivalent to a hybrid. The car was clean and smelled brand new. The ski rack was perfect. When back in Denver I will definitely rent Edis car if available.

Sharon's car is great for zipping around the Denver area! Not much extra space so best for singles or couples, but very economical and the AWD is great for little snow flurries. Thanks for a great experience Sharon!

Pickup and return were super easy from the Denver airport. This car was very clean and in great condition. We forgot to refill the gas and Andrew dealt with that for us. Highly recommend!
