Mariano made the rental experience great. His responses were quick. I had to rent his car at the last minute because the other host didn't have the car ready for me twice. Mariano accommodated me immediately. I highly recommend renting with him.

When my trip with Getaround fell through, Charles made the rental process through Turo extremely easy and convenient. The car also drove wonderfully. I’d definitely rent a car through him again!

Charles went the extra mile. After the trip he drove us home, and we had a great chat. His cars are very clean and well serviced. Overall he runs his little Turo operation like a real business; if you’re looking for a rock solid experience renting a car without all the hassle and with better service than an actual car rental company, look no further.

The car is neat and clean runs well and is very spacious. Carla is very responsive and answers all queries on time. Over all it was a great experience and I was very happy with my choice by picking up Turo instead of Airport Rental Cars. I will surely use Turo when I travel again.

I absolutely love this car! The best part was it being a hybrid it was my first time driving one and I absolutely love it. The car itself is really nice the huge plus was the fact I had it for 8 days and I did a lot of driving but the gas held so well I literally only put gas the day before I took it back to have it on full! That’s impressive especially because the amount to fill it up was little to nothing compared to most cars. I will definitely be renting again!

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.

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.

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.

I’m a first-time Turo user and this vehicle met my needs of budget-friendly and road-worthy for an out-of-state day trip. The car had no apparent mechanical issues and all accessories that I tested or needed to use worked flawlessly. Included aux cable and several chargers. Would recommend to bring your own removable phone mount if you have need of safe GPS navigation with your smartphone.

Although it’s not a glamorous car, it’s safe and fuel-efficient.
