This car was a bliss to drive, simple, straight forward, comfy. Dan is the most amazing host, very easy pick up and drop off. Very chill. I had quite a few rental cars but enjoy this the most. It also needs pretty much no petrol which is a huge plus

We had a great experience with Edwige! The car ran very smoothly and was very fuel efficient. We experienced zero problems. Edwige was very kind to the two of us and allowed us to change our pick up day and time to fit our hectic schedule. We would definitely choose her car again if we ever needed to rent a car in London!

I will definitely stop using the rental car corporate businesses! The owner is a great guy and ūüíĮ I will give him a call for my next trip. He delivered the car in time, it was clean and it was a very nice experience for my friends to have a beautiful car for a 3 day city break. Easy and safe drive at an amazing price and fuel efficiency at its best. Totally recommend Sunil for a positive collaboration

BMW 1 Series 2011

Firstly, Lovely, smooth easy to drive car. Was really comfortable and certainly great over the 500 miles i covered. Charles clearly takes great pride in his car and you can tell the moment you sit in it. Beautifully clean, better than new and Charles took extra time out of his Saturday afternoon to go through the car and ensure the hire was stress free. As well as that. Something that really surprised me and was appreciated was Charles offering support the entire time. I have hired many cars before and never has the owner been so proffesional and human. What was even nicer was that i shortly recieved a message following the return of the car hoping i enjoyed my trip. With London being a total nightmare owning and driving a car in. It's very good to know that with Charles you can have the luxury of driving a beautifully maintained car and not worry about the hassles. Will certainly be contacting Charles when business calls me away from town.

Toyota Yaris 2015

Car was professionally cleaned for my first use. Good location to collect & drop off now I know which bus to get direct. I wasn’t aware collection and hand overs were done in person which I think is good for first time use. It’s gives both parties confidence and respect for the share. Also the owner can take their images and get you settled in if you don’t know your way around the car. However, maybe inconvenient for both parties to return the car / keys before booking ends in my case 10pm but returned by 8pm so owner could check me out of Turo. There is no option to lock the car via the app or leave keys in glove box as initially thought based on my previous experience. Only thing I didn’t realise was having to refuel to full tank during booking. Might have missed on my part (the small print) as used to booking cars with fuel included up to a certain level. Total expense for two days was approx £110 including £15 11.82L to refill. As received. Good drive, ample space for shopping items in boot, will use again for shorter / local trips to save on fuel as in a tight budget.

I made a mistake when I booked this car - I forgot to check the location. It had moved since I last hired it - and was an oversight on my part. I realised the car was the other side of london very late the day before I was due to set out for work. I mean very late. Early hours of the morning.... to my surprise, my somewhat panicked message was answered, rather than simply cancel my booking, the hosts phoned me, moved a different car to accommodate my needs overnight and made my morning (which should have been a self inflicted chaotic hellscape) into an effortless and easy experience. I have given 5 stars because I cannot give anything higher. If I could, I absolutely would. Would highly recommend using these hosts, would also recommend being more attentive to details than I am when booking. :o)

Kia Ceed 2019

Much more flexible and better value than your average car rental! I hadn't realised that Avalon actually provides a delivery and pickup service for their rental cars - something they should definitely advertise! I was panicking about having to find the car in central London but in the end had a brand new car delivered to my door. My only issues were slight lack of communication and initially slow response to my messages, which had me close to cancelling my reservation. It also would have been helpful to know the required documents at the time of booking.

RS Cars was so easy to work with and the individual that dropped off/picked up the car was so pleasant. It's always a treat to have a seamless experience. The car is definitely older and was given to us with practically an empty tank, but it did the trick and was perfect for our afternoon trip out into the countryside. Highly recommend!

The previous renter needed the car longer than expected and this ate into my rental time which threw the timing of my plans off. Ebran was very helpful and supportive the entire time. He kept a good line of communication throughout, and event contacted Turo to extend my time to factor in the lost time in the beginning. I was also able to check the car in at my location. Thanks Ebran

Arkadiusz O.
Peugeot 308 CC 2012

This wasn't the regular come & go rental. We had a flat battery on start due to the previous renter leaving car lights on and Victor, despite not being present at the location, raised to the challenge and helped us out as much as he could. Our rental started about an hour later and with some uncertainty around the car reliability. Victor kept the communication channel open with us and we've successfully visited and enjoyed Cotswolds despite the initial problems. In my opinion, it's hard to give someone a 5-star rating if you've never seen them failing and so this time giving a 5 star is a no brainer. Most certainly earned and deserved. Thanks to you Victor & your local helpers.
