It seems prescient that the city of Charlotte was originally established after a local gold discovery, and is now a prominent US banking city. Which is to say that Charlotte is full of treasures. The culinary scene has been making a name for itself with new takes on Southern cuisine, and the wealth of museums offer plenty to stimulate the mind.
The temperate climate also makes Charlotte an ideal place to bike, hike, raft, and race cars — and you don’t even have to leave town. For the easiest, breeziest entry into the Queen City, pick up your Charlotte airport car rental alternative and start moseying.
Charlotte might not come off as a place for adrenaline junkies, but it’s full of opportunities for hair-raising thrills.

Gavin + car were super dialed-in. From pick-up to return, everything was seamless and professional. Definitely the best Tesla Turo game in Charlotte.
Brennan was a great Host! Although the car is an older model Milan don’t be fooled..... the vehicle drives like a Charm💨. I enjoyed every bit of my journey. I will gladly rent from Brennan next time I visit Charlotte. See ya soon..... Thank you Brennan🚘 Ciao 🙋🏽♀️
Justin is an amazing host! Not only was the car spotless, it drove so well! I’m so happy I decided to go this route and rent from him. Not only was the car AMAZING he was so responsive and flexible. This experience was priceless and something you for sure can’t get from an enterprise or hertz.
Excellent service!! Faster to get the car , nothing complicate, cheaper than rent a car !! I recommend 100%
Trip went great. Car was perfect! Easy pick up and drop off. Will definitely rent again!!
Chris is excellent appreciated every bit of his help and communication. The BMW was beautiful love the experience I would recommend anyone to rent this luxury car. Thanks Chris!
James is a great communicator, everything was as described, no issues. Glad to have worked with James on my first Turo rental as my concerns were disproven. The Kia is as described: not luxury, few bells and whistles like touchscreen or backup camera, but very clean and ran extremely well. I'd rent it again.
Kenneth and Doreen are excellent hosts with great selection of cars. I originally booked the Camaro with them for the long Easter weekend, but at the last minute when that car wasnt available due to technical issues Doreen set me up with another convertible in a short notice. Communication is great, kenneth and doreen are very responsive and they take care of their guests as well as they take care of their cars. 10/10 would rent from them again.
The car was beautiful and clean and it’s the definition of luxury at a non-crazy price. Probably won’t be renting any other car in Charlotte but this one again!
This was my first time renting through Turo, after looking extensively through other hosts and vehicles. James stood out, as well as the car, it was very clean and looked brand new. I was impressed, drove excellent. Nothing but good reviews, James offered exceptional service. He kept in contact before and during my trip and I appreciated it since I was a first time Turo user. Fast, easy, simple pickup and drop off. Definitely would rent again from James!
Justin was a champ in assisting me in a very stressful and dangerous situation. In the middle of a terrible storm I hit a pothole on the interstate and acquired 2 flats on the Tesla. AAA got me to a tire store that night and unfortunately they did not have the tires that I needed to continue my 1000 mile trip. It was going to take several days to acquire the tires. Unfortunately I needed to get somewhere for a video production job had to rent another vehicle. Justin offered to give me a refund for the days the car was in the shop. I have not received the refund however I am working with Turo and with some luck maybe will get this resolved. Beware of the insurance and look out for the $3000. Deductible! There may have been some wheel damage and we are currently sorting that out. Justin did everything he could to make things easier. We will see how TURO handles the situation....
This my second time getting a rental car from Mr Francois, he communicates well, no issues, very professional, I will definitely recommend getting rentals from him.
Dan the man is certainly that. If you want someone who knows how to put you at ease and give you a fair deal, support this young man. He works full-time and then is launching this cool business. Help him out and I don't think that you will be sorry! Compare vehicles with any rental company. Dr. JG McDaniel
It was smooth and good to find a car once the all other rentals sold out! Just suggest owner to provide usb charger for long way drivers 🤗
I wanted to locally rent a luxury vehicle for my birthday weekend but none of the local car rental establishments had anything that I was interested in. I wanted a Mercedes so I Googled luxury rental cars and I came across Turo. I was a little bit unsure at first because I had never heard of this company before. But to make a long story short, it was an amazing experience. The car was just what I wanted. And more importantly, this company was with me every step of the way. They gave very detailed instructions on how to pick up, access and return the car. They were even there during my trip to make sure there were no problems. Didn't feel like you were just out there alone not knowing how this thing works. It was awesome and I plan to use them again as well as refer my family and friends to them.
Hands down one of the best experiences I have had since hearing about this car rental service. Not only was Kunal flexible he was very accommodating, I recommend driving this car anytime you visit Charlotte I know I will.
I love using Turo. It’s really convenient and have the best rates. The cars are amazing and sufficient. I recommend it to everyone who’s looking for car rental
Thanks Fitzgerald, I really appreciate you making my first experience with Turo a GREAT one. The car was clean, and well maintained mechanically. If I'm every back in Charlotte and need a rental, you're definitely my guy. So I vouch for Fitzgerald's rental service. He was was professional and punctual. Thanks again man. Be blessed.
Great reliable car, Ebony was able to pick me up right when I landed and able to help assist me with the area and when time to return she was available and ready. Will rent again from her if back in this area.
Tony's car is really a pleasure to drive, and I really appreciate his kindness and flexibility. This was just a short little trip, but it was a whole lot nicer in terrible stormy weather knowing that I was in a solid car that would keep me safe. And these Harmon Kardon speakers rock!
Great Car Even Better Service! I was only supposed to have the car for a my 35 bday but after death in my Family James was so helpful with me having to keep the car for a few extra days. I will be renting again from him!
Car was excellent really fun to drive, very quiet and has great MPG only had to fill up once during my trip
Repeat client. Clean car, good price. Communication A+++. Responsive and flexible. Will continue to rent from James
Andrea is awesome ! She made sure me and my friend were well taken care of. Her car is top notch and rides like a dream. Stop looking and rent this car!

Ibrahim was very responsive and attentive and made sure my trip went smoothly. The Jetta was a great car for a day of work travel and I was very satisfied with the experience.
Gavin was awesome and very helpful! The car was out of this world!!! Be careful renting this Tesla... you will want to buy one shorty after returning it! Thanks again brother!!!
Miles was a pleasure to rent from. Car was cleaned and drove well. He was very communicative and responded promptly. I will definitely use him again!!! Thanks again MILES!!
Communication was great! Car was clean & full of gas. The pick up and drop off was a breeze! Best Turo experience so far. Thank you Jean! Your service is top notch.
Trip went amazing no issues with the car. Easy check in and return highly recommended
I definitely recommend getting this challenger it rides so smooth very good on gas for a sports car I will rent again in the near future!
HIGHLY RECOMMENDED. Quinesha was an amazing host even though it was her first time hosting. The Challenger was squeaky clean when she dropped it off, and very fun to drive. You should definitely rent this car if you like that Hemi V8 rumble. I will definitely rent again.
Wonderful first Turo experience! The car was so fun to drive, and the host and his family were exceptional. I would absolutely rent from Dhyaa again in the future.
Smooth pickup and drop off experience, and AMAZING car. It’s practically brand new and drives great, especially on long road trips!
Tripper was fantastic to work with. Very responsive to all inquiries throughout the process. The car was amazing to drive!
Tony was easy to book with and we had no problems with the car. Would definitely rent from him again.
James is one of the best Turo experiences one can have! He is flexible, car pick up and returns are easy.....
Very responsive. helped me out greatly learning how to use the app for the first time. Clean car and easy instructions for renting the car.
tameka was an exceptional host. she was easy to communicate before and during the rental. the car was easy to locate, easy to access, and easy to return. it was clean when i picked it up and was in perfect condition and working order during my rental. i will definitely be using her for my future car rental needs in the charlotte area. thank you tameka!
Mr.Francois was an extremely professional host and was always available if I had a question. The trip was really good and the car drove great. I highly recommend Mr.Francois for your car rental needs.
Yusuf is definitely the guy to go with in the Charlotte area. He made the process simple, was flexible, and communicated everything perfectly, all of which were my concerns with Turo opposed to a standard car rental. Our car was clean and as advertised as well. Will use him again if we are ever back!
I have been renting cars from Turo when I travel for long periods of time and I’ve had good service most of the time. However, I have never had such an awesome experience like I had with this rental. James was courteous attentive and very accommodating to my needs at time of pick up and drop off. I am very pleased and extremely happy to have booked this car. The car was given to me spotless and it even came with alcohol wipes to wipe down surfaces for my safety. The car is amazing to get if you wanna ride in style and very sporty. James thank you for your amazing service. I will definitely be booking again.
Tripper is a great host. He made the pick-up/drop-off very easy and comfortable. On our first day of travel, our flight got delayed 8 hrs. I felt terrible about it and he was very understanding and accommodated our delay without incident. All I had to do was text him and he responded within minutes. Upon arrival for drop-off, he met us right at the curbside of the airport. Super easy, super friendly. Thanks again for such an awesome experience!
Don was an excellent host and the car was amazing. It was a last second booking after the cancellation of a different vehicle with a different host. Don delivered. Instructions were detailed and clear. Car was a head turner and drove great. It was the perfect vehicle for our exploration of Charlotte. The technology was top notch and simple to navigate. I would highly recommend this host and this vehicle.
Jason was awesome!!! This car is a beast. Was the perfect addition to our weekend. Highly recommend working with Jason also highly recommend this car!!! If you haven’t driven one, you haven’t driven.
Great service!!!!!! Met me at the airport to deliver the vehicle. When I returned the car at the airport. I forgot a few things in the front trunk (frunk). They waited till my family members go there to retrieve the items for me. Customer service was great!
Justin’s S5 is a great car. Smooth manual transmission, great handling and performance, all you can really ask for. He was also very accommodating to bring the car and pick it back up from the airport. Great service, thanks Justin!
James’ car was a dream to drive. From start to finish, the process was easy and the communication was simple. Thank you !!
This was a spare of the moment trip. This ride was awesome. James is a great host.
Phil gave clear instructions for both picking up and returning of the vehicle, which was awesome. The car drove great the whole weekend, didn't have any issues. Thanks Phil!
James was great!!! Nice car no hassle, I would definitely use him again in the future.
Alex is great. My trip was done early and he was able to meet me for an early return.
Car was clean and was a smooth ride. Jean Francois was professional and friendly. Would definitely work with him again.
Super clean car, Rize is amazing, the car is amazing, and I would for sure recommend. Thanks for everything!
Great ride, cool vehicle. Smooth transaction. Would rent again. Make sure you check the weather before renting this vehicle.
Amazing vehicle... The host was very accommodating and I look forward to renting from her again in the future
