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.

Alythia was an amazing host. Renting her car for the weekend was an out of the blue experience where she made borrowing her car easily accessible on short notice. She was able to show me everything about the car and was very accommodating when I needed extra time to return the vehicle.

Great rental overall. Car drives well and the interior was kept very clean. Outside dings and scratches on the car that originally had me a bit worried (eg would I get blamed for something that I didn’t do like with your typical car rental), but everything seemed well documented and accounted for. Pick up and drop off are very hands off. Thanks Awais.

First time using Turo and I was blown away - hosts like Thomas will put rental car agencies out of business. I booked the car pretty much last minute, Thomas would reply very politely and almost instantly. When picking up you meet a smiling young man who obviously loves cars and explains everything you need to know about this little beast. The car is a 328 diesel with an M package - seat-gluing torque at low RPM, especially in sport mode. Just be careful with it, cause I do want to rent it again!

David was super easy to work with & made the trip very convenient! He also has a super cute daughter that greeted me when picking the car up! Haha Would definitely go to David again for rentals!

Renting from Chris was super easy and convenient. He showed up on time to drop off the car and took the time to show me all the important features of the car. His car is really easy to drive and very good on gas. He was really friendly and accommodating and picked up the car as soon as I was done with it. This was my best rental experience so far and I would definitely rent from him again in the future.
Sara C. - September 15, 2019
Nissan Micra 2019
The Nissan Micra is a jewel. Easy to drive, wonderful to park (fit everywhere), but with a lot of space if others people join you during the trip. Thomas was also the perfect renter, nice and polite, I absolutely recommend to choose one of his cars.
Melissa A. - September 28, 2019
Jaguar F-Type 2017
Having returned to Toronto to visit my family and friends, I got an opportunity to rent the F-Type to explore. It has cool street credit indeed! Eleven though it comes with supercharged V6, it is well behaved and easy to drive. There is a sport exhaust button to engage, but i just leave it untouched just not to wake up the neighborhood. Gonna miss this experience and would like to drive it again somewhere when I get a chance for Turo rental. Oh by way for Cantonese speakers out there, no worries on communications at all!

Love renting from Usman. The cars are always so clean and he's always flexible with my trips!!

This was my first experience with Turo and Joseph made it into a great first experience. The car arrived clean and glistening. It smelled like how German cars do after leaving the factory. Everything in the car was immaculate and it only had 15,000km on it. He gave me keys to the car and gave me a heads up on the type of fuel the car used. Coming in from abroad the ratings for fuel are different and this was great to know. All in all a great experience and I’d really recommend Joseph’s car. He was punctual when delivering the car and a really nice guy to deal with all in all. RECOMMENDED!

It was our first time using Turo and Jemma made it an absolute breeze. She was extremely helpful with answering all of our questions, most times within minutes, and even helped us find things to do on our trip. I would highly recommend anyone looking to rent a car to look into renting with Jemma. Also, her car is awesome and is an experience in itself.

Rented from Crystal twice now, both her cars. Smooth rental, easy pickup and return and excellent communication from Crystal. Both the cars the Fusion and Fiesta are well cared for and run great. Was given a full tank at pickup in both cars. I would highly recommend renting from Crystal and she will be my go for car rental in my neighborhood. 10/10

We forgot a CC to rent a rental car form a corporation, last minute Turo (first time) for the win. I will only do Turo from here on out.

Nissan Versa 2008
This car was perfect for my needs, very reliable! The car is older and well used but felt very comfortable and familiar to me, like a car I had for a long time. It ran very well up hills and long distance. You have to turn the A/C all the way to max for it to start but you can adjust the temperature with no problem. İlhan has a sizable car rental shop where cars are easily stored for pickup/drop off, pressure washed, and repaired as well. The shop is also in a fantastic location near the airport, I took an Uber for about $10 CAD. İlhan is super friendly and accommodated me for my needs, just ask when you do pick up!

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.
