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.

Don't ever hesitate to rent from Jesse! He made the whole experience an enjoyable one and provided a great car!

Jesse’s Ford Focus was a great little car to get around and suited all my needs for my trip. Jesse was pleasant, a great communicator, flexible and I would not hesitate to rent from Jesse again. Thank you.

I came from Phoenix Arizona to Minneapolis to see our children, Craig made it incredibly easy to have a great cheap rental for my trip! I will use Craig next time!

Smooth communication. Good vehicle. Thanks Craig!

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.

By far the best experience with a car-share rental to date!

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.

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

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 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.

Ford Fusion 2016
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!

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!

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

Emily was very easy to deal with. She had the car very clean, ready to drive and she gave me all the info I need to enjoy the ride. Top person to rent from.
Aluizio B. - December 23, 2019

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!
Thaddeus D. - September 7, 2018
Chevrolet Cruze 2017
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

Pavel was great! The car is in great condition and he was very responsive to my questions. I would recommend him to anyone looking to rent a car.

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.)
David R. - November 14, 2019

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
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

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!

Great car! A little loud, but definitely worth the cost! Victor and his family were super helpful! We really appreciated using his car for our trip!
Caitlin E. - January 2, 2020

Just what we needed a car to get us from point a to point b. Nothing too fancy but enough to fulfill our needs. Julia was very responsive and helpful. Would definitely rent again.

Victor was very responsive whenever I had to message him and he made sure to come out and greet me both when I came to get the car and drop it off and was very friendly and flexible with my last minute schedule changes. The car was also very good as I went on a quick 7 hr road trip and back over a weekend, the squeaks were barely noticeable. I felt very safe in it
Alison N. - December 18, 2019

I’m never disappointed when I rent from Alexander. He’s always kind, respectful, cheerful, and most of all flexible with pick ups and returns. Hands down my part of my top 2 rentals on Turo! Alecia N.
Alecia N. - January 12, 2020

The car was in great shape considering its age. It ran great. Victor was great to deal with. This was my first experience with Turo and I will definitely book with Turo again.
Tom S. - January 11, 2020

This was so easy and convenient! Amir is the best! Didn’t need to get a ride to car since it’s close to the bus station and light rails. Car drove very smooth and well kept!
Latanza B. - January 4, 2020
Ford Focus 2007
The car is literally everything you’d need to get around. We had zero issues with reliability, communication, mechanics or anything else. Even being able to extend the trip an extra day so last second made it even easier. I highly recommend Victor’s vehicle to anyone looking for their trip to be smooth, easy and flexible.
Brett L. - January 4, 2020

Noah tracked our flight and saw it arriving early and communicated an earlier pickup time. Car was in fantastic condition with low miles. Will definitely use again on our next trip to MSP.

The Yaris was a wonderful car! Great gas milage and fun to drive. Would rent it again.

First of all, Amir is pleasant and great to work with! Running errands and short trips in the Carolla is cost-effective and convenient for me :) and the Bluetooth feature is perfect for navigation or music from my iPhone.

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
Alecia N. - September 2, 2019
Toyota Corolla 2014
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
Toyota Corolla 2013
Amir is great! Communication throughout was excellent, he’s very helpful and flexible. The car was reliable and in great shape. I’d definitely recommend him to others and rent a car from him again.

Nice clean car and amazing service from Pavel! Will recommend to anyone who wants to skip the shuttle to rent a car from the airport...Curbside pick up and drop off!!!
Steven P. - December 15, 2018

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
Ford Focus 2007
This was our first time using Turo. I have to say that Victor has set the bar very high for subsequent rentals! He was friendly, accommodating, and made the whole process painless and stress-free. THANK YOU VICTOR!! We’ll be using Victor again when we back to Minneapolis to visit family.
Sharon H. - November 30, 2019

Greg was super chill and easy to communicate with and the pick up/drop off was really smooth + I discovered a new coffee shop so that was cool. Would rent again 😊
Pisila V. - December 20, 2019

Easy and simple. Couldn’t ask for more. I needed a couple extra hours to return the car due to weather and it was not a problem at all. Thank you Amir!!

I slept in and was an hour late to pick up the car. I apologized and he was so cool about everything. The car looked great. He told me everything I needed to know about the car. He was so easy and fun to work with from start to finish!

Pavel was easy to work with answers all questions quickly and helped me along my first booking with this site.

Sean R. - January 4, 2020

Overall, I've given this trip a five star review based on my experience with Jesse, Turo and Liberty Mutual. I was victimized in a hit and run accident on New Year's day and was unable to finish my trip. However, I was pleasantly surprised at the ease it was to file a report and keep Jesse up to date on everything that followed. I will be using the service again.
Ellie G. - January 13, 2020

Great car to get from point a to point b. If you’re looking to save money while getting around MSP, don’t look any further.
Cozart T. - January 6, 2020
Nissan Maxima 2017
It was my first time using Turo. It was a pretty uneventful car rental...which is a good thing. Weldon met us at baggage pick up to pass off the car. Upon return, we were set to drop off at the same place but Weldon was running a few minutes late so he instructed us to park the car in short term airport parking, which was not a big deal at all. Overall it was a great experience and would rent one of Weldon’s vehicles again.
Mark V. - October 10, 2018

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!

Time to rewrite “Planes, Trains and Automobiles” Let’s see, 2017, immaculate BMW 3 series...? For less $ than a compact “Chevy Dork” (or whatever they’re calling those tiny go karts these days) No brainer...! Natalie was available and insistently responded to any questions I I was a total newbie... She checked up on us during the trip, was friendly and personable and didn’t smell like the normal ashtrays the Big Box Agents Do... you know, the ones who give #ZeroEFFS about their clients. She cares if you’re having FUN! Imagine that! Everything is handled right here on the App which makes it super easy.... she was friendly, understanding and very professional. I’ll never use a Big name car rental company again... thanks Natalie, we’ll definitely utilize her again and can’t wait to try Turo in on our trips to other parts of the land.
Chris L. - August 5, 2018
Toyota Corolla 2012
Amir was awesome! He responded quickly to all messages, was very polite, punctual and made my first Turo experience delightful. It could not have been more convenient, he met me at my airport terminal and I was able to leave the car in the airport parking lot. I will never rent a car again, Turo and Amir are the way to go.
Brandon T. - August 14, 2018
Scion xB 2006
Atul was terrific. I was in Minneapolis for a week during Heavy snows and sub zero temps and the Scion was a dream. Front wheel drive gave me the ability to traverse all but the worst conditions and it always pulled me out of snowed in parking spots. The car has a short nose profile which makes it great for city parking and it started even when left out for 24 hours in sub zero cold. I was very protective of grandma Scion she got me through. This is my first trip with TUR and I highly recommend it. The big rental companies may never see me again. Atul is a super representative of your fine company. Thanks

Amir was an awesome host during my trip to Minneapolis! My flight got delayed and didn’t arrive until nearly 2 in the morning and he was flexible and welcoming to me and my family. Drop off was smooth as well, including a ride back to the airport! The car was good too. Clean and simple. Will definitely rent again next time.
Brandon C. - July 23, 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

Jesse’s Ford Focus was a great little car to get around and suited all my needs for my trip. Jesse was pleasant, a great communicator, flexible and I would not hesitate to rent from Jesse again. Thank you.

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!

Booking this car with Amir was perfect! I loved the car, it was in great condition and drove really well, not to mention it is a great price. Amir was great at communicating and was really flexible when working with us when our schedule had changed. It was good on gas mileage and the number of miles included with the car was just right. The best part of my experience with this car was the convenience. The car is picked up right near one of the light rail stops that also took us to and from the airport. The convenience of being able to land at the airport and take the light rail to our vehicle was amazing!! Thank you Amir, I look forward to renting this car again in the future!

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.
