Durai was great! The car was perfect for getting me around to where I needed to go and saved me quite a bit of money in comparison to rental cars at the airport!

Robert was timely and communicative, and since it was an electric car rental, he was thorough with instructions on how the vehicle performs and how to use charging to its potential. He is the type of Turo car owner that you want to rent from. Conveniently located near Washington Dulles airport, too.

Hiram
Hyundai Elantra 2011
We flew in on Christmas Eve. Our flight was delayed twice and Nexuz was super flexible and nice about it! The car was clean and smelled good on the inside. The amount of miles he offered for the amount of time we were here was fabulous! We were able to drive from DCA up to Pennsylvania to visit family and come back. The car ran well. The price of this car was about half of the cost of the rental cars we were finding online (about a week before our flight) for the same time and area. It was a great experience overall.

Hands down the best car on Turo especially if you love the road. Emmanuel’s M2 was the highlight of our trip to the countryside. The M2 is the ultimate driving machine in every way imaginable and Emmanuel’s pricing, communication etc was top notch! We’ll be picking “Blue” every time we are back in VA from here on out. Thx again

Renting Jorge’s vehicle was a great experience! The vehicle was very well taken care of, clean and great on gas. To top it off, he was a very nice guy, flexible with time & great at communicating with me throughout my rental time. If you are in the Washington area looking for a good vehicle that’s great on gas, I will recommend renting from Jorge.

I really can’t say enough about Hamzeh. I put the wrong airport in the app and he drove to the right airport for me! He would have been within his rights to cancel the trip. But, he didn’t, and I was grateful. And, the car is in great shape, comfortable, and clean.

Jen made pickup and dropoff easy and she was very flexible when we were running a few minutes behind dropping off the car. The off street parking spot was excellent to have for this neighborhood where on-street could be hard to find. Looking forward to renting from Jen again.

Parixit
Nissan Altima 2013
Let me begin by saying, I never write reviews, even if the service is outstanding, I rate them but never bother writing anything. But, Ron deserves some good words. The trip was fantastic, his car had no problems, it was clean and properly maintained, I had no problem with it. Apart from the car, Ron's hospitality was excellent. I highly recommend him.
Parixit D. - March 9, 2019

Paul
Tesla Model 3 2018
Enjoyed the opportunity to "test drive" a Model 3; Car was great, but also learned of a few quirks (e.g., turn signals and windshield wipers), and realized on-screen controls require a learning curve. Eduardo was away, but pick-up and drop-off were made easy by his prompt and thorough messaging. Car was very attractive and clean on pick-up (and hopefully still looked so at drop-off). Would happily rent from Eduardo again (and he has a very cute, green Chevy Spark EV, so maybe we will take that for a spin!). One major downside was not Eduardo's fault. Level 2 charger at neighborhood parking garage worked when I plugged in car last night, and added 1 kwh before I left car plugged in, but when I went back this morning, barely any more charge had been added. Had to return car to Eduardo at 30%, incuurring $20 recharge fee--which seems very reasonable.

Craig
Toyota Prius 2018
I had a super easy time checking in and out with Wilmer. I chose to have the car dropped and picked up at my house and not only did he communicate clearly and effectively, he also dropped the car early and made it very convenient for us! Checking out was a cinch. Wilmer gave clear, easy instructions. The Prius was clean and used very little gas on our trip. Overall, 5 stars!
Craig W. - March 10, 2019
Aibek

What a great ride. Not only is the car a 10, but so is Jason’s service. Couldn’t be more happy with this experience. The car is outstanding. A truly premium ride, and this one is exceptionally outfitted and taken care of. A luxury coupe that just happens to be a legit track attack machine. Happy to cruise down the highway in Touring mode or making all the right sounds in Sport mode. Yes you better be able to drive a manual! Jason was super responsive and made the whole process super easy and convenient. Can’t wait to be back in DC!

Tesla Model 3 2018
Sandwiched between my two business days in Washington D.C. area were several days off just before the Labor Day weekend that I wanted to spend with my wife and in-laws who were on a family reunion in Vermont. Since I had already placed an order for a Tesla Model 3 Performance car, this trip was a perfect opportunity to rent a similar Model 3 and see how it feels on a long trip to and from Vermont. Shane's car performed marvelously and I was happy beyond compare. My family members were equally impressed by it, asking questions and looking forward to my own car's delivery back in LA. Having seen, read and followed Model 3 reviews and articles over the last couple of years, I was already familiar with its features when I rented the car, so it was a natural transition for me. The long trip (>500 miles one way) was truly enjoyable in both rain and shine. The car was equipped with the E-ZPass device which helped a great deal on numerous toll roads. Tesla Supercharger stops were opportunities to rest or explore new places and meet new people, especially other Tesla owners and enthusiasts. Shane also provided an extension cord and an adapter so I could charge the car's battery from a regular AC outlet at the remote Vermont farm. He was a very thoughtful host and committed to me having the best experience possible with his incredible car.

Car rental alternatives in Washington

Local Washington DC favorites

No visit to our nation’s capital is complete without beholding the White House and the Washington Monument, but book a car and push the boundaries of the usual DC junket.

  • Sip subtly in a speakeasy
  • Perhaps a holdover from Prohibition days, Washington DC is rife with speakeasy bars that attract mellower crowds. Google around and find the clandestine bar that appeals to your tastes.

  • The Smithsonian
  • The museum scene is strong in DC. Once you hit all of the necessary patriotic monuments in your car, try to visit some of the Smithsonian’s 19 museums around town.

  • Get outdoors
  • Most folks don’t think camping when they think DC, but drive out to Shenandoah or run with the wild horses on Assateague or Chincoteague islands and prepare to be wowed.
