I definitely had a great experience with Duce luxury car. I recommend anyone that comes to Chicago and rent out this vehicle. 10 star in my book
John was just an amazing host! Everything was handled smooth and such a great guy to talk to! I highly recommend him to anyone looking to rent a car in Chicago! See you next time :)
Pengfei is a terrific host. I would recommend him to anyone that is on the market for a car rental. Great customer service, responsive, and easy to talk to. Eugene
Eric made my trip so convenient. Since I was arriving into town late, he dropped the car off for me at the airport so that I could just go straight to it after my flight landed. The iPass he provides saves on time and money so that I don’t have to worry about going around the tollways. I will absolutely be contacting Eric again for another rental when I head back that way next time and I would recommend him for anyone traveling and needs a car rental. Thanks Eric!
Eric was great as a host. The car was clean and in good condition. It was the perfect size for our family of four and easily accommodated our luggage to and from the airport. I will most definitely be renting from Eric on my next trip to Chicago.
I was so hesitant to rent from Turo because I’m used to renting from budget or enterprise. My experience Ulukbeck was beyond my expectations! He was very kind and very easy to communicate with. He always replied to any questions immediately. He truly raised my interest in renting with Turo again for all my future car rentals. Never will I rent other than through Turo. Definitely will rent again from Ulukbeck! He was awesome and his car was super decent!
Matthew’s Nissan Versa Note was perfect for my trip! Pickup and drop off was contactless, convenient, and easy. He had already taken pictures of the car and the dashboard which was very helpful since the app had trouble loading my pictures. The gas tank was full when I picked it up and Matthew even had bottles of hand sanitizer in the car doors. The car drove perfectly and I ran into no issues using it. So grateful for a smooth rental experience!
Mohammad was extremely helpful before, during and at the conclusion of my rental. He was easy to reach, friendly, and I had no issues with the car. He shuttled me to and from the airport and made the process effortless. Will rent this car again on another trip.
Ceaser has the best Tesla in Chicago and he is a great host..... I’ll be renting again soon!!!!
One of the best cars I have rented. Nick even offered to drop off and pick up the car! Would definitely rent from him again in the future.
Car was waiting on me when I landed in Chicago, and she made sure I was able to access vehicle and gave me a chance to add more days to my trip. All around good trip.
Adedovin was a fantastic host! She was quick to respond any time I texted her. She even agreed to extend my trip last minute which was amazing. And the best part is that she waited until an Uber came and got me after I dropped off the car. Best customer service ever. 10/10 recommend and will rent from again!
Absolutely loved this car! Great on gas, efficient and clean! Kevin was a great host! When I travel back to Chicago, I’ll definitely rent again!
This was my 3rd trip with one of Nhat's cars. As always, it was great. I highly recommend renting from Nhat!
Amazing car. Im a business associate for my pops company so when I come to Chicago i book with this guy every single time.
Mohamed's car was super clean, and really fun to drive to Indianapolis for a quick weekend trip. I returned the car a couple of hours early, and Mohamed was very accommodating. Would definitely rent from him again!
It was amazing. The car rider smoothly and the transaction was very efficient. Would highly recommend and will book again with Pengfei when I visit Chicago
Alon was fantastic. Very accommodating. Will definitely use for any car needs in and around Chicago!
Car was a good deal. Def got a good bang from my buck. I always rent from him and each time is great! Will def do it again
Man, this car is UNBELIEVABLE. It’s a freaking beast of a machine, from the way it rumbles the ground as you start the engine to the smooth ride, but damn does this baby purrr! Flexible, reliable and great rental service. No doubt will be renting this sexy vehicle again! I’ll tell you this - do yourself a favor and rent this bad boy!
Kok is an AMAZING host! He very informative and hands on. The help and support he provided during my time of rental was just outstanding! . The car is super great, fully equipped and “ oh my goodness” it’s superb on fuel efficiency! I had an wonderful experience it was very professional and welcoming and kind. So if we could choose our hosts, know Kok and his Hyundai Sonata would definitely be my number 1 pick!
The car ran great. I was very pleased with my rental. I will definitely rent this car again.
Eric is a great host! Super detailed, responsive and sweet! Would love to borrow his car again the next time I am in Chicago! Thank you so much!
This was my first time using Turo and I must say from start to finish my experience renting a car was extraordinary. Over many years I have rented with probably every auto rental company in the US but nothing even comes close to the Turo experience. Indeed, I initially rented with Turo because the national rental companies were ridiculously high and William provides a good deal on his cars. I did so with great skepticism, but from the moment I started the rental process with William, my concerns began to diminish. William would answer any questions I might have. The car was clean and well maintained. Needless to say, I am now a confirmed Turo renter and look forward to my next trip with William and the convenience of using Turo.
Very very nice trip. Car was very clean and had very good gas mileage. Car drove super smooth and overall made the trip so much more enjoyable. We’ll definitely rent again when in the city next time
Nhat is the absolute best host that turo has to offer. Such a pleasure to work with. A+ rentals as well. Bravo Zulu
Wonderful sporty car that worked great and host was so easy to work with. My first Turo trip was a complete success and I will definitely be renting from Robert again!
Charles and his little Fiat, Pearl, were awesome! Super seamless rental experience and the perfect car for house hunting in the city. Highly recommend, we will be renting from Charles again next time we come to town!
Renting the car from Mohammad was an awesome experience. His communication was extraordinary. His delivery was outstanding. He was already at the airport 15 minutes ahead waiting on me. The car is superb and very smooth in handing and has a luxury feel. The return was very early in the morning and Mohammed was very cooperative in accepting the return.
Perfect car for long distance trips since it’s unlimited miles & good gas mileage. I would definitely rent again!
I always enjoy rent a car with Nhat Hoang. He responds fast and is very flexible with handling things.
Another trip renting from Tianshuang and another 5 star experience. Just like last trip, communication was great, car was clean and Tianshuang was easy to work with. If you need a car rental in the Chicago area Tianshuang is the SMART place to go.
Tianshuang is a super example of the best of Turo. He has a great selection of cars, great prices and great service, and he runs his business well. The other people I met who were renting from him had similar stories to tell of how he did better for them than anyone else. Turo is about cars, but it is about freedom and greater options and opportunity. Turo is about the democratization of car rental. Renting from Tianshuang was a great small business and freedom experience. When I return to Chicago I absolutely will be using Turo, and Tianshuang again.
Car was sparkling clean, pristine condition and drove beautifully. Brian was punctual for pick up/drop off, accommodated trip extension and communication for questions almost instant. We use Turo often and this was hands down our best car rental and host experience! It’s great to know excellent customer service and quality cars are available every time with Brian.
This is how car rental should be. Definitely a great experience using this service for the first time. Elina was amazing with all of this, from delivery, during our trip and car return process; her communication was flawless, on time and easy to follow. Will recommend her 10/10, and won't hesitate to look for her again on my next Chicago trip.
I cannot recommend Eric enough! He was so responsive, helpful, polite, and kind! The car was in great condition and he gave very clear instructions on how to pick up and drop off. I will definitely be booking with Eric for my text Turo trip.
Fun car! Clinton is professional and communicates clearly. I would definitely rent his Fiat again.
Wow, what a great car and Pengfei was awesome to work with and was accommodating an extension of the reservation. He communicated well and it made for a great experience. I will definitely rent his car again.
We made last minute reservations with Eric. And I was very impressed on the fast turnaround and approval of the Kia Soul. He made sure we received good instructions and details on the pick up location of the car. Loved the ease of picking up and dropping off the car at the airport and the use of the lockbox. The car was in great condition and smelled very fresh and clean. I would definitely rent again from Eric and recommend other to do so too.
Bradley was super easy to deal with and very communicative. The car was clean and drove beautifully. Would definetely recommend and I would happily use him and his car again.
Mr. Kok was very professional and very helpful. He made sure the car was cleaned and left disinfectant wipes along with snacks that was extremely thoughtful. The car was good on gas and I enjoyed the entire experience. It made my trip and weekend 🥰
This is a really special car. The engine, transmission, brakes, it's a wonderful experience. Albert is very professional and a great communicator. You'll love your time with this car and how easy it is to work with Albert. Can't wait to rent this baby again!
Great vehicle no issues. The host offered great communication the entire time of the rental reservation. I would recommend.
This was my first time using Turo and I have nothing but great things to say about this host. I will be a returning customer! Thanks for making renting a car in the city so affordable and easy!
Car was in excellent condition. Owner was extremely accommodating. Would definitely rent again
Imran was a great, responds in a timely manner and the car was nice and clean! I would rent again!
Nick was very accommodating with the local drop-off. His car was in great condition, and didn’t give me any issues during my trip. Would definitely book again - you should too.
You may not always be able to receive online msgs on time but procedures and communication with Nhat are always so simple. I enjoy renting his plethora of vehicles. This car was an extremely smooth ride.
Gabriel was a great car host! Communication was clear and on time. Definitely will be renting again in the future.
Beautiful, clean and fun car. Also friendly and quickly responsive. Definitely will rent again from him.
Great communication, car was super clean, comfortable and drove great, highly recommend! Will rent again from Eloy.
I reserved the car only a few hours before because I got a late cancellation from another person and Ying saved my life! Car was great and Ying was so helpful, organized and VERY quick to respond. He was very detailed and polite. I would 100% rent again from him. Thank you so so much Ying!
Eric was a great host who provided immediate responses to all my questions. It was a very smooth process and the car ran without any issues. I highly recommend renting from Eric.
Host was very NICE AND CAR WAS SO CLEAN AND WAS IN VERY GREAT STANDINGS...Nice young man I WILL DEFINITELY RENT AGAIN WHEN IM BACK IN THANK YOU AND BE BLESSED
Communication was great, car was reliable, and drop off was easy! Would recommend Tiffany to anyone wanting to rent from Turo!
Great car, easy pickup and drop off. Great in gas, clean and nice features. Will rent again!
Christiann was the second person I’ve rented from with this service and absolutely one of the best. The car is very well kept—especially for being 10 years old. I appreciated the economical side of it as I fly into Chicago but live in Milwaukee. Cost only $25 for a weekend trip and to fill up—35 MPG in sport mode is awesome. I was a few minutes late for my return but Christiann was kind and accommodating for that. Was very easy to arrange an Uber to and from the airport—I’ll choose Christiann over Hertz or Enterprise every time.
Eric was so great to work with, I would absolutely rent from him again. Remote pick up and drop off was super easy and the car ran great.
Amazing trip with Eric's car. Everything was great, the pick-up and drop-off were easy and Eric was great about communicating! Thank you so much for the trip Eric!
This is my 2nd time renting from Pengfei pick up and drop off was smooth car was clean and ran so smoothly..Will rent again..!!
I had a great experience with Lindsey car. She responded back to me in a timely manner whenever I had question or concerns. I highly recommend I look forward to renting from her again soon.
Eric was GREAT!! Everything went well & Eric stayed in contact with me during my trip! I would love to rent from Eric again!! NO DOUBT!!!
Renting from Paulette was great, check in was quick and easy, she was very detailed as to where the car would be. Price was great, she was very generous on the miles as well. Check out was just as easy as check in. Id highly recommend paulette if you are wanting a vehicle that is reliable and has efficient and a person who responds quick, friendly, and very helpful.
Duce was great and the car was amazing! I HIGHLY RECOMMEND and will be back to rent again
This car was exactly what I needed! I was clean, it drove really well and the host was friendly. Valerie’s communication was prompt from the time I booked until I dropped the car off. It was affordable and I definitely will be renting it again in the future.
We rented this beauty for our anniversary, turned engagement and it did not disappoint! This yellow dream is gorgeous inside and out! Chris was fantastic and so great to work with! If you want to have an amazing time in a beautiful car, do not walk, RUN to rent this car! You will not be sorry! We are excited to work with Chris in the future! 💛
Rental was great! Surprised my husband for his 40th and boy was it worth it. Great communication throughout the whole rental process too.
Amazing car and even better host! Highly recommend working with Jermale, I’ll be renting again soon!
This car is just wonderful! You wouldn’t want to miss on this beauty. I would rent it again because I’m ready to feel the power of Dodge Challenger!!!
Antonina was very sweet and her car was perfect and clean , rides very smooth I will be renting again
Nathan was accommodating, kind and responded quickly. His car is clean, drives well and feels safe. Will definitely rent again.
Amazing host, phenomenal car, five star experience! Will definitely rent from again and encourage anyone on the fence to rent it. Excellent vehicle for the city.
Excellent service! Outgoing very nice! And the Audi is more than amazing soo smooth perfect car for a vacation!
Nick and the car were great! The gas mileage is a huge plus - we only had to fill it for two gallons even after sitting in traffic both ways. The car was very clean and still had the “new car smell.” We will definitely rent with him again!
