Another amazing trip with Aureliu and Nick! These are my “go to” guys for car rental in Seattle. They are flexible, on time, reliable and the Jetta is always clean, maintained and in perfect condition. I highly recommend their business!!
Mohammed was an extremely accommodating host who was nothing but extremely kind and helpful to us. Definitely going to Mohammed for a car rental whenever I am in Seattle again.
This is the place to rent a car for Seattle. They picked us up from airpot and dropped us back off. Car was very clean and in excellent condition. I highly Recomend them. Good communication thru app before trip as well.
Easiest experience I’ve done, and major discount from rental cars. 10/10 highly recommended
First time using Turo. Mohammed was great and accommodating. The car was as expected and our trip was made a lot easier using Turo versus a car rental company.
This was a very easy rental. Car was clean and safe. Renter was easy to deal with. We are not familiar with the area and he gave me grace to change my times TWICE (traffic) will be resting again
Clean car, very helpful and reasonable host. He made our trip to Seattle a lot easier. Def recommended
Great rental! Host was responsive, friendly, & helpful with showing all features of the car before the trip. Would rent again!
Azil was a fantastic host who was incredibly friendly and helpful!!! Next time we are in Seattle we will definitely be using Oscar again! Thanks for taking the stress out of renting a car!
Great experience renting from Vasko. Car was nice and clean with great gas mileage. Will definitely rent from him again next time I’m in Seattle.
Great car! It was just what my partner & I needed while visiting Seattle. Rodney was a delight to work with & I would rent from him again
My trip with Chris was my first trip with turo, and I don't think it could've gone better ! Chris was really patient and helpful as I navigated the rental process. The car was in great condition, and felt really safe in it. Would highly recommend Chris for your next Turo trip !
Great gas mileage car no issues. Christopher was responsive and helpful on my first Turo rental
Easy and covid-conscientious pickup and drop off. Little zippy car perfect for the compact areas in Seattle.
had a great trip in fang's car! fang was excellent at communicating in a timely manner. looking forward to renting again
This car was so clean and man was he an amazing guy! Super friendly, reliable car, gas saver! What more could I ask for! Perfect rental!
Hung was great! Able to accommodate a couple of hitches on our end along the way with no problem. Will definitely rent with him again next time in Seattle.
Alusine is a friendly and accommodating host, and the Camaro was a great car to tour around Seattle with!
Aureliu is a great host. His vehicles are clean, well maintained, and delivered with a full tank of fuel. He is very accommodating and is easy to communicate with. We were met outside baggage claim and the vehicle was picked up from Departures at the end of our trip as promised . We were traveling with a baby and he made it very easy for us to pick up and return. We didn't have to worry about taking any shuttles or going out of the airport area to pick up the car. We plan on renting from him again in the future.
Great medium sized car to zip around the city or for a short road trip! Enjoyed renting!
Not only was Ryan's car a dream to drive and kept us comfortable for all that mileage, he is so responsive and helpful. The pick-up and drop-off was seamless and we would rent from him again in a heartbeat, thank you for helping make that part of the trip so smooth!!!
The car did great in the snow and fit exactly what we needed. We were able to fit our skis in the vehicle. Austin was very communicative and made the pick-up and drop-off process very easy. I would definitely rent from him again. We knew we were renting a 2008 vehicle, and the car had very minor mechanical issues that did not affect our trip. We let Austin know and he said he would take care of it.
Gurav was very understanding when we had to cut short our rental. We appreciated his kindness and the car was great. highly recommend
This was a great rental experience. The car is brand new and it was an easy pickup/drop off process at the airport.
Mohammed services were great this past weekend . The car was nice and clean, he was on time when delivering and receiving the car. Very responsive when messaging Mohammed. I recommend to use him anytime you are in the Seattle area.
Great car for a low price. Aureliu was very quick to respond whenever I had questions. Will book with his car when I come visit Seattle again.
The car was so clean & operated without any issues. It was a smooth & fast ride so much easier than getting an uber/lyft when visiting from out of town. Cheaper too, if i ever return to the washington area I will rent with Corey again.
Anish was great! The car was perfect! The best car rental experience I have ever had. Thank you again for making my business trip more enjoyable.
Best car rental experience ever. The car is super clean, and Anish is very nice.
Awesome new car - clean, drives smoothly, and not having to worry about filling up gas at the end of the trip is a great plus! Chris is also an excellent host, extremely responsive and went above and beyond with pick-up and drop-off. Highly recommended!
This is an amazing beautiful vehicle build for comfort. The green color and tinted windows adds an amazing touch of luxury that makes this car stand out anywhere you park it. Richard made the process really easy from start to finish and he is always a quick text away if you ever need anything. I Definitely recommend this experience for anyone looking for a vehicle to use while in town.
Vasko is my hero. He helped me out big time and was patient with us. I will never forget him, Seattle's #1 turo guy. Respectful, kind and prompt. Can't beat it!!
Tahir was very responsive and his car was very clean and in great working condition for our special trip. Thank you so much again for sharing!!
Great car for a fair price! Chris was super responsive about my inquiries, as well as extending my trip for a few hours. Highly recommend the car, and Chris was excellent as well.
Hung was very nice and understanding. We’ve never used Turo before and he walked us through the easy steps. Very flexible, as we had a flight to catch and he met us at SeaTac with no problem (and early too so everything went smoothly!). Car ran perfect, we really just needed a car to get around the national parks in Washington and it was very reliable. Highly recommend booking cars through Hung!
Great Car and Great Service! Karen and Jim were so easy to work and communicate with it, which made our trip so much more enjoyable. My son wants a Tesla now, really bad, and so do I. We will see what happens lol
I had a GREAT experience renting from Isfandyar. He was so friendly, helpful, and available all day. He helped us easily navigate the charging stations and was flexible with return time when we arrived back into town earlier than expected. The car was immaculately clean, fun, comfortable, and easy to drive. I would highly recommend this car and owner.
Pramod made it very easy to pick up and drop off the vehicle. He is a great comminicator with clear instructions for how to drive his Tesla. The car itself arrived clean and fully charged and in perfect condition. I would definitely rent this Tesla from Pramod again and recommend anyone do the same!
Tristans service amazing and his vehicle was immaculate, clean and well serviced. We plan on returning to Seattle and we will look forward to working with him again. Thank you sir for your amazing services.
Sam was an exceptional host! Always ready to accommodate what I needed and was quick to respond to my questions. His Tesla was also exceptional, making me want to get a Tesla of my own. Will definitely remt from Sam if I go to Seattle again, Thank you Sam!
Very friendly. Gave us the car in great condition and it was perfect for our vacation. I had no issues what so ever.
Thank you Rodney for letting me use your car, clean, in great condition, drives very nicely, and the airport pickup option is perfect. All the best :)
Will was very prompt, the car was clean and ready to go. Definitely made this trip a breeze!
Christopher was great! He was very communicative and friendly. The car was very clean and ready to go. He was also flexible with my pick up time. Would definitely recommend and would rent from him again.
Great mountain car! Very clean and exactly as pictured. Just what I wanted. Joseph was also great with communication. Would rent again!
Bryan is a very good host, I loved my time with his Tesla! I rented from him for a week to see if I might want to live with a Tesla someday soon, and his car is clean, well kept and of course, fun to drive! On the actual car, I will admit charging is still something that feels like something I’d have to get adjusted to, but taking away the charging situation, I love the car! I recommend all people should drive it to see the future of driving! Thanks Bryan for the opportunity to try out a Tesla!!!
Cole and Brittni were more than accommodating. They made pickup and drop off effortless. The car was great to drive as well, very clean. Overral, a great Turo experience, will definitely see if the car is available again next trip. Thank you both again!
Same great service I’ve come to expect from Tristan. For this trip, I especially appreciated that he stays in contact when it’s needed most. My flight landed 30 minutes early and he responded almost immediately and arrived earlier than the scheduled time. As long as there is a vehicle available, my family will always rent from Tristan.
Little hiccup when I got there but Tahir was on it right away and took his personal time to fix the small issue, great person to rent a vehicle from couldn’t of asked for a better and comfortable way for this trip
This was my first time using the app and Azil made the process effortless. He was at the airport when I arrived to pick up and drop off the car. The radio was tuned to some good local stations which I enjoyed very much. I will certainly be using this app again and hopefully working with Azil on the next trip to Washington!
good experience with this trip, Christopher is available non stop and car is super economic. all for recommendation.
Azil was on time and very easy to deal with for both the receiving, and returning of the car. Car was great, and everything went smoothly! Thanks Azil!
Such a pleasure and she was so understanding of my whole trip even though I couldn’t pick the car up on time. Would recommend her any day.
My wife and I had an outstanding time with Hamed's F-Type. Not only is the car great, Hamed is very personable, communicative, and of good character. If you are unfamiliar with the vehicle, he will give you a detailed explanation of the various technologies and accessories the Jag has to offer. Overall, a great experience and will be doing business again in the future. Disclaimer: If you choose to rent this vehicle, be prepared to answer the "What is this?" question from curious people.
Tim’s car made our trip an easy and safe experience. The car was clean and worked like new. It was easy to drive and the drop off and pick up process was as simple as it could be. I will definitely recommend it to friends and family. Excellent service!
Ricky’s car is a fun vehicle to drive. Great for city roads but also enjoyed while on country roads. He was nice to let me extend my trip when needed some extra time.
Excellent customer service. The car requested was unavailable so they hooked us up with an upgrade and didn't guff about it. Look forward to renting again. Very convenient airport pickup.
Great experience. Will definitely be using Aureliu again for my Turo needs in the Seattle area
It was my first turo experience and it was great! Marcus responded to my messages in a timely manner, the car was as described and very fun to drive. Highly recommend renting it! Thanks Marcus
Great experience! He was right on time! Very polite & clean! He had wipes and hand sanitizers for us in the car which was very thoughtful! There were fast car chargers for iPhone and Android phones that came really handy. If you want to save on gas money, this could be your ideal choice!
Wow, just WOW! Michelle was so personable and such an incredible pleasure to deal with from the moment we landed till our departure. We were flying up to Seattle for both business and pleasure and so Michelle helped coordinate curb-side pickup and drop off at SeaTac airport. When we landed, she was at the curb within two minutes, and had already sent through the login details for the Tesla app. Given it was our first time driving a Tesla, she took us to a nearby parking lot to train us on the car, and handed us a bag with two water bottles, trail mix, and some gummies — how thoughtful?! This Model 3 is loaded folks — dual moter, extended range, full self driving with AutoPilot, etc. She even had emergency supplies in the ‘frunk’ of the car just in case, and 2 game controllers to pass the time while the car charged. The car drove beautifully, was so much fun to drive, and felt like it just rolled off the dealer lot because it was so clean! When we were ready for our trip back, she conveniently met us right at the curbside departure area to drop off the car, and we were on our way! Michelle puts the traditional car rental company experience to shame. Looking forward to working with Michelle again on my next Seattle trip — thank you!
Words do not do justice as to how impressed I was with renting through Aureliu and his business partner. This was our first time using Turo. I gave it a shot after a glowing review from a friend of mine. I did not know what to expect but now I don't know how I will ever be able to go back to a traditional rental car company. My wife and I made a quick getaway to Seattle for a few days of RnR. We did not plan on having a car and were staying at a hotel downtown. We decided halfway through our trip to rent a car and leave the city for a couple of days to do some hiking so we jumped on Turo and found one of Aurelio's cars. He responded to our inquiry immediately. He then delivered the car to our hotel promptly on time. I contacted him the night before our rental was up because we had scheduled with him to return the car back to him at our original hotel but I wanted to see if it would be possible to simply meet him at the airport instead. He quickly agreed and met me there exactly at the precise time of our drop off. This was by far the easiest and most convenient rental transaction I've ever experienced and truly look forward to looking up Aurelio upon my return to Seattle. His service and professionalism were unmatched. Bravo, Aurelio. You have a customer for life.
Terrific service! Much easier than a regular car rental and the easiest Turo rental to date. Michelle met us at Sea-Tac airport, outside baggage claim, handed us the keys and said, “Have a good trip!” The car was spotless! Super clean and felt like it was new. It came with a full charge and our recharges were included in the rental! We texted her about an hour before we dropped off. Michelle met us at the departure gate, we unloaded, handed over the keys, and walked straight in with our bags to check in. Very easy, super nice car, great renter to deal with. Highly recommended.
Seriously, Matthew is the best and coolest host I’ve ever met! He will teach you how to enjoy the car! He prepared a lot for snacks and foods, even an astronaut ice cream! If I ever visit Seattle again, I will for sure to rent a car from Matthew again!
Truly the easiest car rental experience I’ve ever had! He was there at the airport when I arrived, literally just handed me the keys, and was so accommodating that he met me at SEA-TAC at 5 am when I left. Next time I come to Seattle I hope I get to rent from him!
Adebayo was awesome to work with. Very professional and nice. His car was very clean, drove very smooth and I would highly reccomend using his services when needing to rent a car in the Seattle area! Thanks Adebayo - I will definitely use you again when I'm in need of a rental car!
Amazing car. It basically drove itself to Portland and back to Seattle. Perfect car for road trips especially with how quickly the Teslabsuperchargers charge this thing. Karl was super responsive and friendly and I’d highly recommend his Model 3 for anyone looking either to rent a car for a road trip or just to try out a Tesla.
Renting this car was a great choice and I loved how friendly and helpful the hosts were. There were no issues about the car, it was clean, and we got from point A to point B with no problems! I would definitely recommend this rental to one of my friends if they decided to travel around Seattle. It was also a very good deal price wise. It made our trip easy :)
Alusine was awesome. He even dropped us off at the airport following trip end. He does good business and I recommend that all Turo customers visiting Seattle rent from him.
Andre was always quick to respond if anything was needed and his honda accord was great for a weekend trip
Flowdy was accommodating and responds quickly! He made pick up and drop off feel like a breeze. I would rent from him again.
Andre was a great host, transferred car on time and the car rode very smooth. 100% recommend.
Easily accessible, car ran well, owner was very easy to contact and coordinate with.
That car is a mighty fine piece of machinery! And, Tristan is cool to exchange with.
Tristan was super responsive to any question I had and was very polite from start to finish. Would definitely rent from again.
Abel was a fantastic host. He picked us up from the airport and gave us the car right there. Car was clean and we'll kept. On the way back we just dropped it off to him at the airport. Super convenient and would highly recommend.
