My name is Vancleve Bonner, I had to come to Houston Texas to pick up my son Oliver Bonner and needed a affordable car. Dioni Verango reaches out to me and said consider certified Luxury Autos. We have luxury autos for a good price. I then went to the Instagram page and seen a selection of cars. Dioni recommended the 640I BMW. I said ok and decided to try it. Bruce Bray then reaches out to me as a rep, answered every question I had and brought the car to me on time, clean with great energy, and customer service. I recommend Certified Luxury Autos as the number one rental company in Houston Texas and Houston surrounding counties.

Renting with Turo was relatively easy and a much better value than going with another car rental company. It made it possible to rent a car during my visit in Texas. Thank you for making it affordable.

Tarif is polite, understanding and accommodating. His rental cars are operate smoothly and you almost don't want to give it back lol He made rental process both quick and seamless, and had no problem with the extended trip. His polite professionalism really helped me out alot. I will be renting from again when need be.

This was such an incredible pickup/return experience, totally automated, but with nice touches like clear and concise instructions, mints and water included in the car! Flawless in every way. The future of car rental, made possible today. Simply amazing. The lock box with the Tesla card/key on the door was super effective too. Kudos!

Honestly at first I was skeptical about renting a car from any service other than the big car rental companies. Mr. Papa erased that skepticism. It is a great experience working with him, and I will continue to use his services from here on out. Highly recommend his vehicles. There are many choices. This VW golf was absolutely perfect

This was a great car rental experience, James made it a very convenient process. I chose the option to get the car brought to me and James came a little earlier than the scheduled time with my approval and I was extremely excited about that. The communication was also great, he responded promptly to my request. The car was nice and clean, I would definitely recommend using his car service.

Lorenzo made me never want to rent at a Enterprise Car rental or any other rental place again. He is very pleasant and I needed to extend last minute and he accepted my extension within 2 minutes. His pickup location is in the heart of the city, which is a HUGE plus. This was my first Turo rental so he set the standards high. When I let him know I was having problems with app before check in he helped me get to the pick up location. He was great. In week I may be renting from him again, unless of course you have read this review and have booked by then😁... Thanks Lorenzo!!!!! You were great!

This car and service checked all the boxes. And I️m not talking about the app Turo I️’m talking about the service from this specific person was outstanding. They just made it harder for me to like the next time I️ have to rent a car because this was by far better than any car rental place. I hope I go to Houston again just so I can rent from them again! Thanks for the exceptional service!

Mercedes-Benz E-Class 2018
The one and only for Houston luxury rentals. I’ll be helping him in anyway I can to get the word out about his fleet. He had his E 300 ready same day and communicated the entire Time. His area is safe and clean and I can leave my company cars in his area. He’s my only rental specialist any time I’m in Houston. If you need a business class or sports car same day, clean gassed and ready, get Salman.
Micah R. - September 10, 2018
Hyundai Accent 2012
Everything went smoothly. Ziya was responsive and helpful. The Hyundai Accent is by no means a luxury car, the suspension was a little rough on Houston's pot-holedroads, but it was in good shape, and clean. I would work with Ziya again.
Gregory C. - April 14, 2019
Mercedes-Benz S-Class 2014
This was very easy and fast process everything went smoothly from pick up to drop off. Car was very clean and well maintained. If you are looking for luxury car in Houston I would definitely recommend Royal Sovereign Group.

My rental through Roberto was great. My girlfriend and I were in Houston for a wedding with a venue farther out of the city. Roberto picked up up directly from the airport terminal and made the key hand-off just outside the airport, and we were on our way - very convenient. Highly recommend this car and Roberto’s service.
Chris P. - April 22, 2019
Honda Accord 2018
My grandpa and I booked this car literally in the air, on the way to Houston and TGTM had it ready at the airport for us when we arrived at 11 PM. The car was clean and in good shape, communication was quick and easy. Although the delivery fee is very high, the overall cost of the car isn't bad for what you get. Our entire rental process was hassle- and worry-free and would highly recommend TGTM for anybody visiting Houston.

Toyota Corolla 2012
I could not have asked for better service... They met us with the car right on time. We went over the car together and we were off. The car was well maintained, full of fuel, and clean. It was a seamless experience and about 1/2 the cost of a car rental agency. Our host kept in communication with us throughout our trip and was very knowledgeable about everything we needed to know. Would highly recommend booking with Somi!!!

Polaris Slingshot 2017
Where do I begin. This vehicle is super cool, way better than I expected, Matthew keeps in in great condition and it was very clean at the time of pick up. Had plenty of fun driving it around. But I have to say, the best part of this experience was dealing with Matthew. He is very professional and flexible. He’s easy to contact and quick to respond, communication was a breeze and he made sure that everything went smooth and that I was pleased with the trip. This is my best experience with Turo so far. Every experience should be like this. I definitely recommend renting from Matthew.

Mazda 3 2017
Zayan’s Mazda was just what we were looking for on our trip to Houston. The car was clean and handled well. Comfortable ride. A/C blew cold. We drove all over Houston and still stayed under the allotted mileage amount. One note: There is performance exhaust on it that does increase exhaust noise in the cabin as compared to stock exhaust.
Chad M. - May 7, 2019

Ajay was super easy to communicate with and work with. Definitely will keep him in mind for future Houston trips. Car was great as well.

Alex P. - December 11, 2018
Chevrolet Camaro 2010
Big thanks to Bryan. Turo allowed me to be able to afford to have a proper Texas road trip in an American muscle car. The rental companies have a poor range and inferior booking tools as well as being more expensive. It was a breeze with Bryan and Turo and I am looking forward to having the chance again. New Zealand still needs more cars to catch up with the U S.
Richard M. - October 30, 2018

This was my 2nd rental with Tarif and everything went perfect. Both cars drove perfectly and Tarif was extremely helpful, accommodating, and flexible. My trips (collectively) exceeded a month and he was always responsive and timely. Never had one single issue. I will rent with Tarif again and recommend his fleet of cars to anyone in need of a car rental.

Polaris Slingshot 2017
Let me start off by saying what a thrilling experience it was to be able to drive this slingshot. Literally everywhere we went heads were turning, cars/trucks honking and waiving or taking pictures. If you’re looking for a head-turner, this is it. Further, I could not have been more at ease with Matt (aside from having the same name). He was punctual, having the machine washed, waxed and full of gas, ready and waiting for us as we arrived (and we were early). His communication was great and made me feel at ease both in coordinating the exchange and overview of the slingshot; as it was my first time using Turo, and I had my worries. All in all, so glad I did, it made the trip to Galveston a memorable one! I would honesty give a higher than five star rating, if turo let me, literally not one complaint.
Matthew B. - April 26, 2019
Audi A4 2018
Daniel and his father were incredible hosts: on time for pickup and drop off with their incredible vehicle. I value punctuality and clear communication which they were on point on all accounts. The car (Audi A4) was very clean and was a treat to drive! I will rent from them again and recommend anyone looking for amazing service + a luxury car to book with Daniel.

Left my Bose earbuds in the car and they mailed them back the very next day! Think Thrifty or Hertz would do that?

Ayan was very accommodating during my time in Houston. He arrived promptly at the airport upon my arrival and even helped load my bags into the car. I was able to reach him easily by phone when I had questions and upon my departure he made himself available at 4 am to get me to the airport on time for my flight. It was truly a pleasure to use his car during my stay in Houston and I would do it again.

Local Houston favorites

The fourth-biggest city in the US can get overwhelming in its sheer size, so take a deep breath, hop in a car, and get off the beaten path with these local Houston must-dos.

  • Chow down on some barbecue

  • When in Houston, eat as the Houstonians eat: good old Texas BBQ. Book a car on Turo, grab some napkins, and comb Houston for the best barbecue in town.

  • Go two stepping

  • Take in some good ol’ honky tonk at one of the many dance halls around town. You’ll hear authentic local music and maybe even get a dance lesson or two.

  • Walk Lower Westheimer

  • Packed with cool antique stores, restaurants, and bars, Lower Westheimer is a walkable anomaly in car-dependent Houston. Park the car, and wander wherever the wind takes you.
