In a nutshell, I have to become really stupid if I don't rent from Patrick again next time I need to rent a car in Toronto. A cool manual car and a smooth experience dealing with its owner made this an outstanding turo rental. I have Patrick's car for 35days and if i keep it even longer, I may have to buy his Elantra from him....Thats how much I enjoy the whole experience.

I had to rent a car while my vehicle was in the shop. The Honda was such a nice little car to drive and very fuel efficient. Clean and tinted which helps block the sun in the hot summer days.

As I only turned to Turo because enterprise car rentals were out of cars on the long Canada Day weekend-Ryan was really helpful with helping me understand how Turo works- and his car was super awesome! As I am not a big app person- I super appreciated how reachable if he was by phone. Though I didn't really need to reach him much, as the process was really smooth! I would definitely recommend renting his Charger!

1st time renting through Turo and it was a breeze. Art had a lockbox and I was scared I wasn't going to be able to open it. However, he was very responsive and communicated clearly to me every detail of the rental. It made it completely stress free. The car was extremely clean and beautiful to drive. Good on gas too! Thanks for the rental Art.

One of my most, if not the best Turo experience so far. A very professional and accommodating host, and a great fleet of very interesting cars. Pickup and dropoff were a breeze, and the conditions of the vehicles themselves was immaculate. I could not recommend this more, and Frank can count on repeat business from me.

I was working an event in Ottawa for the Canada Weekend. The price of the rental included more than enough KM for us to drive back and forth, three pits stop on each ride, and some quick site seeing in Ottawa. Nathy came to meet me on pickup and was able to respond to me super quick when I was having difficulty closing the lock box during drop off. Also, a super central area to pick up the car in Scarborough. Will rent from this host again.

I really wanted to give 5 stars or even a half but it won't let me. Even though this is incredibly minor I would say the only improvement I could recommend would be both tightening the firm up times when meeting for changeover and to expedite the process as fast as possible in case her customers are in a hurry and/or unfamiliar with the methods used in adding pictures to the app, getting all procedures concluded so the trip can begin. As it happened to be Friday afternoon and I was already bumped up by the hosts request to be an hour later then our original chosen pick up time. So Friday rush hour was much more brutal. But that is just happenstance and in no way her fault or responsibility. She was very pleasant to deal with and the car was very comfortable and convenient for us location wise. Passing it back was smooth and she even graciously dropped me off at my place as a courtesy. On second thought I AM going to give 5vwtars. My comments explain enough.

Great experience renting from Andrew. First time using Turo but will definitely be using it again, as well as Andrew’s cars.

Best Toronto driving roads

Niagara Peninsula

Wind your Toronto car rental alternative along the Niagara Parkway from Lake Ontario down to Fort Erie on this scenic day trip. You’ll get a glimpse of the Horseshoe Falls and find plenty of history and lookout spots on the way.

Highway 60 or Frank McDougall Parkway

Most striking in the fall, head north in your Toronto car rental alternative from the city to catch this provincial highway that leads you through a bevy of lakes before guiding you through twisty turns in the famous Algonquin Park.

Yonge Street

While Yonge is no longer considered the world’s longest road, it’s still the best way to feel the glow and pulse of the city. Head north in your Toronto car rental alternative toward New Market for a quick trip out of town.
