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!

Great car, perfect for the winter with 4 wheel drive. Nathan was fast efficient and easy!! Would rent again!!

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.

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.

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

Wow! Julia is an amazing host. If I'm in the area again I will certainly be connecting with her again. Julia was always prompt to reply to my questions via text, and in person she is such a joy to meet. We decided to return the car a day early, and she was super flexible with us on that. I'm exceedingly happy with my initiation to Turo, as this was my first time using anything other than the big name rental places. I won't be going back to those services again, it's for me from now on.
Paul M. - January 29, 2020

Arlan let me pick up the car within the hour since my first rental was canceled abruptly. Super easy to work with and really nice. Would go to him again in the future.

We booked last minute for a trip to see a friend who was sick and Amir was very responsive and made it so easy for us to rent his car! Much appreciated.

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!

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.

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

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!

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.

This was my first time using Turo and Victor made it a breeze. He was friendly and helpful. Always available when I needed help with the car. Other than that, the car looked cool and was fun to drive. I loved this experience and look forward to renting the car again next time I come out to Minnesota! Thanks

BMW 3 Series 2007
Exactly as advertised. Excellent value, dependable and comfortable. The car has some typical bruises and wear you'd expect from the age and mileage, but drives well. All wheel drive was ideal for the MN weather. Speaking of winter here, this car has the fastest seat heaters I've ever seen (felt). Fantastic when it's cold out. Perfect host made pickup and drop off easy. Thanks for another good Turo experience.

The Car Ran Great Through The MN Snow. I Had No Issues With Driving. He texted and called me to make sure I was pleased with the car. He was very flexible when I needed to keep the car longer and change my pick up location. Awesome experience for my first ever trip!

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

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

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

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 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

Great vehicle and great host! The car ran smoothly and was very clean. Matt was a great, communicative host. Our trip plans changed mid-rental, and he was very accommodating in both extending the reservation as well as adjusting drop-off logistics. Thanks Matt!

This was my first time using Turo and Freddy helped make it an easy, smooth process. I’m local and my car was being repaired. He was flexible and was willing to help me by extending dates if needed. The car was clean and drove well, and the pick up/drop off process was easy. Thank you again!!
Mallori W. - January 25, 2020

It was a great car to get around with while I was in the Twin Cities! I also appreciate the owner’s honesty with any flaws with the vehicle. It was overall a very positive experience!

The car was a pleasure to drive. It was clean and the heating worked (which is key in Minnesota winters...). In addition, Armando was delightful to interact with. He is definitely the friendliest Turo car owner I’ve had the pleasure to interact with. When he found out I was waiting for a Lyft, he offered to let me wait inside, which was really nice. 10/10 for Armando and his Ford Focus.
Jacob Z. - February 1, 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.

Chevrolet Bolt EV 2017
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
Tesla Model S 2014
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
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
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

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

Host & family were awesome, very helpful. Car is great on gas & perfect for a week rental
Mona P. - November 30, 2019

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!
Jessica R. - December 12, 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.

This was our first experience with Turo and it worked very well for us. Julia promptly picked us up at the airport and we enjoyed getting to know her. When our plans changed due to an unexpected medical emergency, we were able to extend our reservation with Julia with no problem. Julia was great to work with and we would definitely rent a car from her again!
James M. - February 28, 2019
Tesla Model 3 2018
I booked Brett's Tesla because he lived so central in Minneapolis, I didn't have to drive to the suburbs to start my rental. I am so glad I booked with Brett for many reasons besides that, however. Brett and his wife took us on a test drive to show us all of the functions of the Tesla that we had not experienced before, that was really cool! As someone who was a little intimidated to drive such an expensive and cool car, he really put me at ease. That was important for me because I wanted to have FUN renting the car. We definitely did. I would recommend Brett and his car to anyone looking for a seemless experience. Brett was easy to communicate with before, during and after our rental. And the rad.
Anne K. - November 5, 2018
Ford Taurus 2015
James and his family run this business like pros! We had a great experience with them and Turo. Right before we arrived in town the car we had reserved experienced a small, unforeseen issue that needed to be fixed by the dealer, James and his family went above and beyond what they had to do to make sure our trip went smoothly. They had another car ready for us at the airport and then as soon as our original rental was fixed and out of the shop they even brought it to us at the Mall where we were having dinner. This is service you won’t get from the “old fashioned” rental companies. 5-Star service, cant wait to rent from them again when we are back in town!
Michael P. - October 2, 2018

Amir was great. He made my first Turo experience very easy. Great communication, car was exactly as described. I will definitely be renting his car again on my next trip to Minneapolis and I highly recommend others do as well.
Caleb B. - October 14, 2018
Toyota Yaris 2012
I was on vacation in Minneapolis and needed a car for a day to make a trip about 2 hours away. Amir's Yaris was absolutely perfect: it was clean, in great condition, easy to drive, easy to play my own music through, and the pickup and return were very easy and convenient!

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.
