I’ve never used this service before, but a bad experience with Enterprise Car Rental left me desperate at the last minute. Matt was great to work with and very understanding. He was responsive to all my endless questions and changes.

Amazingly nice person! Didn’t sit there and nickel and dime us for anything! We went through one toll (75 cents I think) and didn’t charge us! Extremely clean nice car and very flexible with the flight issues we had. If you rent a car in Chicago it needs to be from Elina!!!!

Daniel made this the easiest and BEST car rental I’ve ever had! Marcel the Mazda is so fun to drive, I love that it’s manual transmission. The car is clean, gas was full, speakers are awesome, and Daniel made the whole car rental experience effortless and fun!

Will has great car. I always wanted to drive one. This Turo gave me the oppertunity. In the past I would use the major car rental companies and it always turned into a hassle one way or the other. “Will” took care of that also while juggling a couple of unforscene problems. When you rent a car from “Will” he has a good support system so it’s not just him , that’s why I definitely am going to use him in the future.

llya has renting a vehicle down to a science. He has the most seamless and transparent pickup and returns return process i’ve ever experienced. The car was super clean inside and out and our communication couldn’t have been better. IIya showed me the model of what a successful and fun car rental ought to look like.

Rafael made our car rental experience super smooth and easy! Pick up and delivery were convenient and quick. His A3 was immaculate. Aside from my wife stealing his phone charger our trip was perfect... haha sorry again about that Rafael!

Michael was a pleasure to deal with from start to finish. Besides providing a well kept car with super gas mileage, Michael included 1000 miles, an EZ PASS and cell phone charging cables. He was personable and accessible, and gave prompt and curbside delivery. We highly recommend Michael. He was SO much less stressful to work with than many standard car rental companies we have used. We're glad we found him.

Dima was amazing. First time using the service. My wife flys to chicago frequently and uses Dima and said it has been seamless. So I decided too. Much better than your big car rental services and it was the service and communication

Micheal communicated with me anytime I needed anything. It was my first experience with Turo, and I enjoyed it much better then the car rental place. I would recommend Michael for anyone that wants to rent.
Aaron M. - February 10, 2019

Adam’s incredible service made this the best car rental experience of my life. He met us at the airport exactly when he said he would, coming and going. His WRX was spotless and is clearly well-maintained. We have family in Chicago and will absolutely try to rent from him on our next trip.
Robert P. - November 2, 2017
Toyota Yaris 2012
This was my first time using Turo and Eric made it an excellent experience. I would definitely say Turo is more convenient and pleasant than renting from a low-cost car rental company which was my other option. There was no wait at all when I got to the airport which there would have been if I had gotten a rental car. I knew in advance exactly which car I was getting and where it was located. Eric was very reasonable in splitting the cost of a new hubcap to replace one that unbeknownst to me had fallen off under my watch. He also charged me only the cost of refilling the car when I ran out of time and brought it back without refilling where as a rental company would have used that opportunity to charge a hefty fee. I found the whole experience to be a much better alternative to renting a car.
Leah R. - March 12, 2019
Toyota Yaris 2010
The trip went amazing. I had to rent a car since mine was in the shop, and they were very accommodating! If I ever need to a rent a car again, I'd make sure it was from them
William C. - October 13, 2017
BMW 5 Series 2014
Adisa was on time and answered all questions within minutes or seconds. I will definitely book this car again if available in the Chicago area. This was my first Turo trip and Adisa explained everything perfectly. I don’t think I ever want to rent a car from a rental company again. Adisa made this service awesome.
Michael W. - October 7, 2018

This was my first time using Turo and Gabriel made it an awesome experience. Communication was on point! I travel to Chicago 3-4 times a year so I will use him again when I need to rent a car! Thanks!!
Lourdes L. - January 13, 2019
BMW 7 Series 2013
Tianshuang‘s 7 series is the definition of perfect for Turo trip. This car is amazing. The moment you start it you immediately feel the elegant of the luxury BMW. Head up display, M sport packages etc really make me feel like Tom Cruise of the mission impossible. The flat Matte black paint is beautifully unreal!! Draw a lot of attention when we get to the club. Tianshuang is amazing! He is super flexible and a clear and responsive communicator. Renting from him is really hustle free. I will only rent from him when I came to Chicago.
ZEHUA W. - October 27, 2018
Hyundai Veloster 2013
Robert was easily willing to accommodate not one but TWO last minute extensions from me. He was very flexible and communicative about the details of my trip with his car. Awesome car and very fun to drive and surprisingly great on gas! I’ll definitely be renting from him again on my next trip back to Chicago!

Our first car rental had a funky smell, but Greg was very helpful in finding us a replacement for the remainder of the trip at the same cost.

Elina and her car rental went so smoothly! No issues were encountered and she was extremely helpful/flexible with my check in and out.

Chevrolet Malibu Limited 2016
This was my first time using Turo & Michael was amazing! If I had any questions he answered them back in a timely manner, he was very nice, the car was perfect for what I needed out of my trip. I would/will definitely be contacting Michael again when using turo. By using Turo, I was able to pay almost more than half of what a car rental would’ve charged me from the airport. This was a great experience I would definitely recommend trying the Turo app to friends & family. Pick up & drop off at he airport was a breeze, I didn’t have to deal with any paperwork like at a car rental place or anything. If you’re in Chicago definitely contact Michael, he was awesome!
Noelle T. - July 31, 2018

Absolutely the best experience in car rental. This was my 7th rental from Elina this year alone!! Always the best service and communication each time. She is a joy to be with too. You will not be disappointed!!!

I’ve rented from Dee several times now. His cars are always clean, rates fair, and he and his wife are always so nice and easy to work with. This is the first time I rented his Lexus and the car was awesome! Clean and fully loaded! Heated/cooling seats, Navigation, Moonroof, etc. AND it’s a luxury All-Wheel Drive sedan—perfect for Chicago! Thanks again Dee for another phenomenal experience! I’m happy to see your fleet grow so I have multiple dependable options when I’m in town for work.

Victoria was the best renter imaginable. When we needed assistance during the trip, she responded and helped us out quickly. Both our pickup and return of the car were delayed and she was always gracious and understanding. Plus the car was a great ride.

Mercedes-Benz E-Class 2007
Steven was the best Turo host I have had. Car was very clean and fun to drive. The car is a 2007 but the amount of care put into it makes it feel like you just bought a brand new car. That goers for the mechanics as well. Drives like a brand new car and you cannot tell that you are driving a vehicle from 2007. On top of all this you feel like you are driving in style! Steven's service and hospitality was fantastic as well. Very flexible on the pickup location as well as drop off. He made sure that the car was all cleaned up for my rental time period. If I was in the market for a car I would not hesitate to buy this vehicle or any other one that Steven would present. Very prompt with communication so expect Steven to get back to you very quickly in regards to any questions you may have. Nothing but class!

We got great time in Chicago first time, because of this little nice car. It is driving great, super convenient and easy to find parking . Eric was helpful, friendly and made everything easy. I am definitely will recommend him as a responsible and professional person. Thank you, you made our trip to Chicago unforgettable.

Mercedes-Benz S-Class 2007
Steven is the best! The car looked as though it was fresh from the dealership clean. Steven is super flexible (he even let me pick up a bit early due to a change in my schedule) and so incredibly nice - he will make you feel like family immediately. Great communication cool car and a genuinely awesome guy! Wish I could give more than 5 stars. You can’t go wrong renting from Steven! I will for sure be a repeat renter from him as this was my best Turo experience ever.
Jennifer Y. - March 18, 2019

As always, Eric's communication and the car were incredible. I've now rented from Eric a number of times and he always exceeds expectations. I will only rent from him in the Chicago area. Thanks again for a great experience!
Aaron R. - March 13, 2019
Mercedes-Benz S-Class 2007
Hands down the best experience I have ever had. Steven is amazing, and great communicator. When I booked, I called him to confirm, he asked what were my plans for the day and was able to accommodate my wacky schedule by picking me up from the airport and bringing me to the car - an amazing Mercedes Benz S class. The car is in flawless condition, drives great, handles amazingly, and best of all is clean and you can’t beat the price for that style! If your looking for a great car and an even better person rent this car and make a friend in Steven. Hell you could rent it just to take a nap in it for a couple of hours it is that comfortable. 100% recommend this car and renting Steven’s other cars.

Volkswagen Eos 2008
Gabe was the greatest. Hey My dad cannot walk. We had a wheelchair. It folded and fit perfectly into the trunk. This was after we got home and had put our luggage away. Before we got home without the wheelchair the eos held an amazing amount of luggage for a convertible of course with the top up. Picking up the car curbside at United was effortless. Be carful with Gabe’s car wheelchairs have metal rings and can easily scrape up a cars side. Having this convertible made it so much easier to lift my dad out of the car. This is the coolest convertible i have ever rented from the best Turo host I have ever seen.

This beautiful car get amazing to drive on our road trip to Niagra Falls Steven was very open for communication and he truly stands out from the others I have rented for. He wants to make it as efficient as possible and affordable for everyone to drive in style and feel good for the day! I am excited to try some of his other luxury vehicles Perfect if you are coming from downtown, Ohare or even in between. A+

First time using Turo and Elina has made me a true believer. Stepped to the curb when we arrived and there she was. Pulled up to departures on the return and there she was again. The best, easiest car rental experience I’ve ever had bar none. Car spotless. Couldn’t recommend highly enough!

Great people do rent from. Excellent communication before pick up. Made the experience so seamless and easy. Mazda was nice and clean.

This was my first ever Turo Rental that I have ever done, Turo is a great way to rent cars for a decent amount of money. It is much more inexpensive then going to a car rental place. Eddie was amazing, the car was fantastic, it drove so smoothly and it was very clean. I enjoyed it very much. I would not only recommend to rent from Eddie but i will rent from Eddie again. This was a... I cant even find the right words to describe how amazing my first car rental was and how amazing it was renting from Eddie. Eddie I will rent from you again i promise!! :D
Richard V. - December 16, 2017
Hyundai Accent 2011
I feel like I got a great deal for a holiday season Chicago car rental. Pickup was super easy. The pick up location is literally one block from the Blue Line, and Zach let me into the car remotely. The neighborhood, Logan Square, is safe and clean. The car is in pretty good shape for one that many people (I assume) drive. It's about what you would expect from a Hyundai Accent with ~65,000 miles on it: it's not the fastest car, but it gets the job done with good MPG. The car smells good and doesn't have any major visible damage. Thank you, Zach, for the great communication and convenient service!
Brandon K. - November 27, 2017

My experience with the car was awesome and if I needed to rent a car for another time I will definitely use his car again

Car rental alternatives in Chicago

Local Chicago favorites

Millennium Park and Michigan Avenue aren’t without their charms, but try booking a car and getting off the beaten path for your next Windy City weekend.

  • Grinders & deep dish
  • The great debate over the best Chicago-style pizza soldiers on, but Giordano’s, Lou Malnati’s, and The Art of Pizza are perennial favorites. Also, notably, the Chicago Diner is one of the best vegan eateries in the country.

  • Chicago Jazz, Baby
  • Louis Armstrong built his reputation in the Windy City, so Chicago is a hotbed of unique and historic jazz venues. Drive your Turo car over to The Green Mill or Jazz Showcase.

  • Wrigley Field
  • While not quite off the beaten path, Wrigley Field is a must for any baseball fan. Built in 1914, it’s the second oldest stadium in the country (after Fenway Park in Boston).
