RMG is the best experience you will get from a rental company hands down. Not only the cars they provide are the finest of luxury cars but the customer service was spectacular. I want to thank RMG cars Boston and also would like to thank Johnson he was a very professional and wonderful employee show nothing but respect and communication was very clear he’s the greatest, I’m looking forward to do more business with RMG and I recommend anyone that is renting to request for Johnson to deliver you’re car to you he is awesome. Thank you again RMG for my my experience a wonderful one.

This was an amazing experience. I knew nothing about Turo until now. I was traveling to Boston and there were absolutely no rental cars available through the regular companies. I found Turo on a Google search. It was so easy. The Car was beautiful. Tello is a great host. Absolutely on time on pick up and return. I will certainly use him when I am in Boston again. Could not have been happier with this experience.

Toyota Yaris 2009

We booked using Turo for the first time and ran into a few obstacles. The Boston airport would not let us pick up and return there so we had to go a little out of our way for pick up and return, it ended up costing us in ubers but was very cheap overall for the rental. The convenience of Boston airport wasn’t in Sherwyns control and he worked with us the best he could on the rental last minute. The car was definitely old but it has some character. It got us from point A to point B but wouldn’t be something I’d trust for super long distances. An aux chord would be a nice touch! Sherwyn was very accommodating and made sure we were taken care of. Despite the long journey to a random street to retrieve the car, we had fun using Turo and would recommend Sherwyn to somebody traveling on a Budget and looking for something simple!

Blake was an excellent host, with a fleet of great cars located minutes from Boston's Logan Airport. Why rent Hertz / Avis' ubiquitous Chevy Malibu when you can pickup a BMW M2 with all of the M Performance parts? You can tell Blake is meticulous and takes care of his cars, exemplified by his decision to install Blizzak snow tires on the M2 during my winter rental. I would highly recommend Blake to other renters.

Simon's car was great! Starting off, the fact that the car was located in the car rental area of Boston's Airport is a plus! It makes it easier to get the car and start your trip as soon as you land! I realized my return flight was earlier than expected so I contacted Simon at around 12am! He still replied very fast and was able to tell me how to return the car! His car ran great and the service he provided was amazing! I deeply recommend him 100%! THANK YOU!

Very convenient car and cost friendly. Had it ready on last minute notice (1 day before trip). Clean interior and exterior. Little bit of battle damage but nothing that affects the car or its look. Fuel efficient only used about a gallon driving 13-20 mins inside and out of Downtown Boston. Small car that fits in smaller parking spaces. Great overall, would recommend for those on budget. Pickup and Drop off was easily done about 5 min walk from the Logan Airport Rental Car area at a nearby hotel.

My experience with this car was amazing. It looks and performs like a brand new vehicle. The fact that has low milage is totally true and you can perceive that when you’re driving it, all felt quite smooth. I rented it for a quick round trip Boston-NY and I had no problem with it. It is fuel efficient and once you want to refill it you won’t end up spending more than ~20 bucks. Everything was clean, and the car was exactly what I was wanting. Also, Jordan allowed me to extend the length of the trip in order to get back in time here in Boston (there was a lot of traffic during the night). By far, the best experience I’ve ever had with Turo.
