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

Laurie is such an amazing person. I personally never met her, but the whole transaction was such a smooth process. It was totally satisfactory. If I ever visit Houston again, I would definitely use Laurie for my car rental needs. It would be my pleasure to recommend Laurie to my friends and Families for their car rental in Houston.

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.

His polite professionalism really helped me out alot. I will be renting from again when need be.

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!

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.

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!

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.

I flew into Houston visiting for a week from Boston. Naveen was such a great host! The car was clean, pick up and drop of location was convenient. Naveen was flexible as I had to make adjustments in my trip with drop off times. I even went over some miles and passed through tolls, fees were reasonable. Overall Naveen service was very accommodating as it was hard to rent from the airport without a credit card. I will book again in the future.

Charles's car was perfect for my small trip to Austin and back. The car was clean, ran smoothly, and maintained temperature during Houston summers. I appreciate Charles's flexibility as I really needed it during drop off. I would definitely recommend Charles to anyone looking for a great price that comes along with a great experience.

Ross was professional, timely, and responsive. He met me at the airport for both pickup and drop off, which was very convenient. His BMW was clean, well maintained, and reasonably priced. Highly recommend working with Ross, will use him again without hesitation if I need a rental in the Houston area again.

Roberto has made our trip as pleasant as possible. We had many surprises on our trip to Houston like a canceled flight, missed flight, and flooding. He work around our schedule to make sure we still got our rental car whenever we landed in Houston. When we were leaving, there was a huge storm that caused flooding, Roberto offered to pick us up and drop us off in his SUV so we can go pass traffic and not get stuck in floods. Honestly, hes the best dude ever. We didnt just visited Houston, we also met a friend!

My trip to Houston and San Antonio would not have been complete without the help of DaLili’s car. It was worth the extra miles we put on our trip and the car was in good condition. This is my first experience using Turo app and it would be my last when I will use DaLili car when I am in Texas.

Had a great time with the car, Namit’s communication was thorough before and during the car rental experience. I definitely recommend booking a trip with any of his rides.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Matthew's Slingshot was in one word INCREDIBLE!!! This vehicle was clean, fun, fast, exhilarating, and a definite led light and sound show on wheels, plus a head turner on every block. My wife and I truly enjoyed the Slingshot and did not want to get out of it even for a second on the night of our rental. This vehicle made our already awesome trip even better!!! If you can drive a manual, do not past this one up.

Ahmed was great the entire time. When I first went to the car the tire was bad in the back. I ended up canceling the car but it was 3 am and no other cars was available. Ahmed got up and took the car to a 24 hour tire shop and put new tires in the back. I was able to make my trip. I will definitely be using his car again. 😊

Tree was understanding with my circumstances, he let me extend the trip last minute to spend some more time with family! The car was far out, mileage was great, and best of all was the unlimited mileage. We had to go to Corpus Christi on a short notice, it’s a 425 mile trip all around. Most other lenders cap at 400! The car got excellent gas mileage and it made me wonder if I should switch over to that model.
Christian E. - July 8, 2019

Great car and communication. Papa arranged other personnel to contact and handle the rental due to being out of town and it was seamless. Arrived on time and was shown the R8, areas of present damage/condition and how to operate the car. Check-in was very professional. Car was very fun and garnered lots of attention and was perfect for date night with my woman! Drop-off and check-out was just as great and will definitely be using Papa's fleet in the future. A wonderful first experience and has set the bar high!

Sean was a amazing host! My boyfriend and I took a mini vacation that was going to be only two days. Sean met us closer to home, earlier than what the pick up time was. He made sure to take the time to explain everything. He was very communicative, and a fast responder. Car was very clean and well maintained. We will definitely be renting again from Sean. Thank you for being a great host!!!

What an amazing car for such a reasonable price! Instead of renting a limo for one hour as a get away vehicle for my wedding, we decided to rent this Porsche for two days. Talk about getting your bang for your buck! Such comfortable, clean, and elegant sports car. The entire experience was a great one! Alex was a great host and was quick to respond to any questions we had before and during the rental. Would highly recommend!

I enjoyed a pleasant experience with Ziya and his car during my 1mo stay in Houston. Ziya is super nice and helpful. And the car worked very well. To my surprise, its truck space is much larger than I expected — enough for travels with a baby stroller and small luggages. Overall speaking, happy experience and highly recommended.

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.
