Car rental Minneapolis, MN

Good nature
in Minneapolis

The hearty people of Minneapolis love to enjoy the outdoors — no matter the season — and when you’re in town, you’ll find it hard not to join the fun. In the summer, food and music festivals pop up around every corner, and even in winter, you’ll find lively games of broomball outside on the ice.

It’s the perfect place to book a Minneapolis airport car rental, so you can soak up all the spirit of downtown, and head out to find the lake of your dreams.

Minneapolis Favorites

For a smaller Midwestern city, Minneapolis has more than its share of lively arts and culture to explore in your Minneapolis car rental.

Guthrie Theater

The best place to see a show in town, this venue books wildly popular music acts and puts on classic and avante-garde theater productions. Check out the Endless Bridge that extends out over the Mississippi River.

Minneapolis Sculpture Garden

Adjacent to the Walker Art Center, you’ll find a host of whimsical sculptures to wander through, including Spoonbridge and Cherry, which has become a symbol for the city.

Paisley Park

Prince was Minneapolis’ biggest rock star, and Paisley Park, his large, mod home, is a delight for any fan to tour. Step into his recording studios to feel his lingering magic.

This was our first experience and there is no other way to rent a car! Nathan wasn’t just good, he, Erika and TJ do it much better! If you’re in the Minneapolis area call Nathan!

Hit the road

A trip to the Land of 10,000 Lakes without a few aquatic adventures would be incomplete! Book your Minneapolis car rental on Turo to meander into nature with all your gear.

The Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness

It’s an outrageously pretty four-hour journey in your Minneapolis car rental to this collection of lakes, streams, and forests that, as the name suggests, are perfect for canoe and camping trips.

Taylor Falls

This popular day trip is just an hour out of town in your Minneapolis car rental. Relax at the St. Croix River, take a scenic cruise, or hike through Interstate Park’s ancient lava flows.


While there’s plenty of rivalry with Wisconsin, Milwaukee offers a different take on some of the best parts of Minneapolis: great music, tasty cuisine, beautiful parks, fascinating museums.

Arlan is always a gracious and accommodating host. As long as I rent from Turo, his car will be in the top 2 of my selection. Thanks Arlan & Turo for always providing me a great car rental experience! Alecia N.

Amir was awesome! This was the best experience and much more cost effective then using a car rental service.

Greg has his procedure down to an art. This was an extremely convenient pick up process and so much better than dealing with rental cars at the dreaded MSP airport. Peppy little car and great on gas. Will rent from him again when in the area.
Angie C. - October 5, 2018

Leo was great to coordinate with and very responsive to communications. Everything went smoothly and efficiently. My first time using Turo and if all experiences are like this, I'll never rent from a car rental company again.

Pavel, was very punctuational and had great communication. It was extremely easy picking up and dropping off the car. I would rent a car from him again

I needed to rent a car for an out of state medical emergency (I don’t fly) and Emily was all too happy to oblige. Due to the nature of the situation my dates had to change a few times and Emily was very flexible in this regard. Emily really helped me out. (Also, her car is really cool and she obviously takes good care of it, highly recommend.)

Amir was flexible and very easy to work. My first Turo experience was a pleasant one. Not sure I’ll go back to regular car rental services.

Thanks a million for your flexibility and great communication, Amir! Renting with you through Turo was a breeze and I would 10/10 recommend it to anyone looking for a car rental in the Minneapolis area. :)

I could not be more pleased with the whole experience of renting this car. Erika was incredibly nice and friendly, and made the pick-up and drop-off easy and pleasant. The car itself was comfortable, clean, and reliable. It would be hard to justify the cost of taking an uber XL to/from the airport if we had only needed the car for a day or two, but for our two-week rental that cost wasn't a big deal, and the overall value of this rental was outstanding--far better than anything the traditional car rental companies could offer. Thank goodness for Turo!

Rebecca provides a great value for Turo! She is a great personality which compliments her car rental experience. Her car functions flawless and barely sips fuel. Since it is also front wheel drive it powers through the toughest weather Minnesota can through at it. YOU WILL BE A SATISFIED CUSTOMER TOO!
Bill S. - October 5, 2019

I had to travel to Minneapolis unexpectedly for a funeral. Traditional car rental agency prices were sky high for last minute rentals. So, this was my first experience with Turo. Homer made this transaction seamless, easy, with fair pricing. His 2012 Corolla was perfect for my needs; clean, no smoke smell, and drove smoothly.
Lisa L. - July 19, 2019

All in All a very pleasant first Turo experience. Much less hassle than a pushy car rental company. I will be doing it a again soon

Alexander is the most gracious, kind, approachable, humble, accommodating, reliable, (the list goes on) host I’ve ever dealt with. He even reminded me to take photos of his car before taking off...who does that? Not many people! I’ve already spoken to him about re-renting his vehicle soon. He’s an exceptional car loaner and his customer service is beyond. I see why he has a 5 star rating. He made my first rental with Turo so easy and comfortable that I will never rent from another car rental company again. Moving forward, I will always rent from Alexander, unless his vehicle isn’t available. Alecia N

speechless first time ever using turo and he made me feel like this app is way better than going to the airport or your local car rental office. He was very reliable when I needed to ask him something about the car he would get in contact with me in mintues of me sending a message. He is a 10 out of 10 host if your ever need of a vehicle in Minneapolis Victor is the guy no doubt.
Jeff A. - July 10, 2019

Chuddy is my 3rd and perfect rental from Turo! I love this car rental service! It really gives the big name rental companies a run for their money. Chuddy was an exceptional host...he was kind, respectful, empathetic, sympathetic, extremely flexible, and helpful beyond belief! The car was so clean, I didn’t want to leave a drop of dirt in it. I will definitely be re-renting from Chuddy if he allows me to.
Alecia N. - September 23, 2019

This was my first experience renting through Turo and it was excellent! Edgar adjusted the pick up & return hours as I needed, was very punctual and the car was in a very good condition. If I come back to Minneapolis and need to rent a car, I’ll make sure to check if Edgar’s Nissan is available. Thanks a lot!

Definitely renting from Brian again, very flexible and had very clear communication. His Merc S550 was very flawless, and draws alot of looks! Very comfortable and smooth, but also pretty quick! Perfect car for our occasion (date nights, taking family out to dinner, mini road trip). Thanks again Brian!

What an awesome host; Kyle was more than helpful and willing, and patient enough to teach this first time E-car user! He provided tons of good tips and pointers on charging stations while traveling long distances. Additionally, he gave good advice when, to my own detriment, I didn’t initially follow his sound instruction. He and his wife were wonderfully flexible, helpful and just generally interesting and friendly people. Now I feel like I have friends in the car rental business! It was a win-win situation all around on my end!
Laura C. - October 18, 2019

Incredibly easy working with Pavel. Dropped off car at arrivals and we dropped off at departures. Easiest and most convenient car rental I've ever experienced. I would rent through Pavel again.
Shane M. - July 24, 2018

Amir was great. The ease of pick-up and drop-off was simple, convenient and so much better than waiting in line at the car rental place! Amir's car worked and ran great. Exactly what I needed, Thanks Amir!

Had an excellent experience using TURO for the first time and using Tyler’s Ford Focus! It was a seamless car rental experience. The car was clean, got great gas mileage and was perfect for our trip! Erica was extremely kind and it was fun making a new friend in the process! Thank you!
Madison M. - July 9, 2018
Toyota Corolla 2011
The original car we had rented was totaled by the previous renter (ack!), but Amir pulled another car for us. It wasn’t the cleanest car on the block, but it was safe and reliable and we didn’t have to spend $400 to get a last minute car rental.
Emily A. - July 20, 2019

Amir's the best, easy to connect with, flexible, and great, reliable cars! Always a good choice for a car when I'm in and around Minneapolis.

Kirk and his Mustang were thoroughly excellent! Pickup and drop off were super easy and convenient, particularly because of his top notch communication throughout. Car was also awesome, ton of fun to drive something with some real grunt for a few days. Would definitely rent from him again in the future.
Luke W. - October 28, 2019

I loved renting Wilson’s car through Turo! The car was clean and well running in excellent condition. I loved the amenities such as charging cords, auxiliary hookup, and remote start. Wilson was very clear and communicated well, especially for a detail oriented first time Turo user like me. An excellent experience all around; I would definitely recommend to anyone!
Jamie K. - October 25, 2019

F went out of his way to find a way to get me the vehicle. I had trip times that were hard to accommodate but we found a way to make it work. Car turns lots of heads and was fun to drive.

Amazing vehicle, have been wanting to buy a new Tesla but wasn't sold on that idea.... after driving this Model 3 I got back and ordered a new X! Clean, fun, and beautiful car with host who was very easy to work with. On time delivery and was able to drop it off 1.5 hour early so that part was extremely convenient. Will definitely rent again when back!

I was really satisfied with Pavel’s car and the whole experience. When I decided to rent the car and I saw he didn’t have many reviews and he was pretty new on Turo, I thought twice about doing it, but then I thought that everyone starts somewhere and he actually had the best rates for the days I needed a car so I went ahead and do it. I don’t regret. He was there on time for pick up and return. The car was clean and very good on gas. Pavel was very responsive all the time. I’d definitely rent a car from him if I go to Minneapolis again. Thanks!
Lola D. - June 21, 2018

Steven P. - December 15, 2018
Chevrolet Impala 2011
What a great way to rent a car. We were greeted right at the baggage claim door and, thanks to Fred's flexibility, dropped off the car at a different location. The car itself was spotless and ran perfectly. We easily saved $100 renting this way and would definitely use Touro again.
Mark C. - August 5, 2019

Very easy and convenient to rent Julia’s car. She was always communicative, accommodating, and added a dose of local flare. Would definitely recommend to anyone traveling to Minneapolis!
Sharon S. - September 13, 2019
Tesla Model 3 2018
Matt was an incredible host. He picked me up at the airport and we went on an extensive demo tour where he showed me all of the features and tools that I would be able to test out during my rental. Communication was easy throughout the trip and drop off was a breeze. Not sure why you would rent anyone else’s Tesla - this car was spotless and clearly well taken care of. Would only rent from Matt again if I was in the Minneapolis area.
Hugh S. - July 3, 2019

Siva Y. - September 3, 2019
Honda Civic 2012
Julia's Honda Civic was a great car for driving around Minnesota and northern Iowa. Julia was very prompt in responding to texts, was very friendly during the car pickup and inspection, and was very flexible regarding the drop off time. The car is a 2012 Civic, with a digital speedometer, a digital radio showing the station name and song titles, accurate cruise control, and great air conditioning. The car was clean, has a USB port for charging your phone, has like-new tires, and was very easy to drive. I will strongly consider using this vehicle for my next trip to Minneapolis.
Matthew M. - September 18, 2019

Renting the car from Amir was a breeze. Amir made pickup and drop-off at the airport very easy. The car was in good shape and got us around Minneapolis for 5 days. Highly recommend if needing a car to get around the city!

Best Minneapolis driving roads

Highway 95

Head north to Stillwater to catch this highway that hugs the windy contours of the St. Croix River. Let your Minneapolis car rental strut its stuff.

Waters of the Dancing Sky

You have to travel north to catch this byway, so far north that on the right evenings, you can catch the stunning Aurora Borealis from the comfort of your Minneapolis car rental.

Mount Greylock Scenic Byway

Take your Minneapolis car rental east to Willmar, MN to catch this scenic highway that follows a route carved by ancient glaciers. Swoop by the Alexandria Lakes for a fiery sunset.
