Another amazing trip with Aureliu and Nick! These are my “go to” guys for car rental in Seattle. They are flexible, on time, reliable and the Jetta is always clean, maintained and in perfect condition. I highly recommend their business!!
This is the place to rent a car for Seattle. They picked us up from airpot and dropped us back off. Car was very clean and in excellent condition. I highly Recomend them. Good communication thru app before trip as well.
This was my first experience using Turo and it was easily the best car rental ever. Azil provided a phenomenal car and I would definitely do it again.
Terrific car; terrific service by Tristan, who made it easier than easy to do the car rental thing the right way. Thanks Tristan.
Aaron was extremely helpful, kind, and prompt. The Mustang was clean and super fun to drive! This was my first experience renting, with this platform, and it was hands down the best car rental experience ever! The only downside is now I want to rent his car daily :) Thank you Aaron. You truly provided me, and my family, top notch service.
Perfect rental for a day trip outside of Seattle near Mt. Rainier. Very clean, great condition. Easy pick up and drop off. Would rent again without hesitation! Thanks, Britney, for sharing your car with us!
My partner and I took a trip to Seattle and this was the perfect car for a rental. Small to fit in any parking spot but also performed well for the highway trips to downtown. Weather was sunny and warm so we pulled back the top to enjoy the fresh air and views. The host made the entire process a breeze
This was my first time using Turo and it was an awesome experience. Less stressful than booking through a major car rental company. Alex was quick to respond, flexible and really nice. Would definitely recommend!
My son recommended Turo and Aureliu specifically. I was a little nervous using this type of "car rental", but it was SO easy. Aureliu was on it with communication upon our arrival and when we departed. Classy guy! Will definitely refer friends and family to Turo and to Aureliu.
Easiest experience I’ve done, and major discount from rental cars. 10/10 highly recommended
Mohammed was an extremely accommodating host who was nothing but extremely kind and helpful to us. Definitely going to Mohammed for a car rental whenever I am in Seattle again.
Sean was great. The communication and the ease of the car pickup was fantastic. Had a really fun time with the car, even got sunburnt on my forehead! Looking forward to our next trip to Seattle so we can rent this car again. Thank you Sean!
First time using Turo. Mohammed was great and accommodating. The car was as expected and our trip was made a lot easier using Turo versus a car rental company.
Dzenan’ impala is a cool ride and safe car. Well maintained and and serviced. I am definitely renting this car again on my next visit to Seattle.
I had a great experience with Jasvir and this car. It is very clean, gets great gas mileage, and is cheap to fill up. Jasvir was very quick to respond to our texts and questions. I would recommend this car and Jasvir to anyone coming to the Seattle area.
Michael is the best Turo host you could ever hope to come across. He is more than helpful during all aspects of the trip! As others have mentioned he oozes enthusiasm for automobiles and it was an absolute privilige and honor to be able to drive his Lotus. Thank you so much Michael for sharing your amazing cars!!
Jon was v communicative and gave me a thorough tutorial as it was my first time driving a Tesla. The car was awesome! I’ll definitely be renting again for my next visit to Seattle!
Mainly stayed in the downtown area. Car handled great & was great size for downtown street parking. Great car. Great hosts. Would absolutely consider renting it out another time if I am ever in Seattle again!
Amazing host, amazing car! Would love to be Gaurav’s guest again for my next seattle trip!
Extremely helpful and amazing team. Aureliu and his team did an amazing job and was very comfortable to work with and very respectful. The car was running amazing no issues at all. I would definitely rent only from him when I need a car in Seattle again. Thank you
Tim was the best Turo rental I could have asked for! We’ve never used the app before but he made the transition so easy. He met us with chocolates and a nice note for pick up and made drop off a breeze. Highly recommend!! An amazing trip thanks to Tim!
Brad and Clair were both very accommodating and hospitable! The car was very clean and it was a pleasure to take it on my excursions while visiting the Seattle area. I would definitely rent from them again in the future.
We love our whole travel experience in Seattle and it wouldn’t be possible without Aureliu’s car. He’s really good at communicating as well. Very nice man and really helpful. The car was in good condition and very clean. The brakes feel brand new and it definitely made us feel safe during the trip. Thank you so much! Would definitely recommend and rebook when we come back!
Michael was a great host and the car was in great condition when we received it. We’ll definitely continue to rent from Michael whenever we’re in Seattle, it’s a no brainer!
Amazing car, price, service and convenience! Best rental car experience in my life.
It’s like riding on a cloud, a short cloud, but a cloud all the same. Sadik’s car came clean and gassed! He met us at the airport for pick up and delivery, and both were seamless! Sadik was incredibly kind and punctual, and we couldn’t ask for anyone better. If I needed to rent a car again I would go with Sadik’s car every time. Plus, the subwoofers in the back definitely up the music listening experience! He also included a longboard which was dope; even if you just use it once it’s fun!
Mr. Kevin Moore has excellent service of ensuring his clients receive an excellent service of his car. He was instantly informing important information about the vehicle so that we wouldn't worry too much. He is quick to respond to messages and is very polite. Time management is excellent for meeting up with him to obtain the car when arriving in Seattle and on time for picking up the vehicle.
Great car! It was perfect for my plans in Seattle. Corey gave me all the information that I needed, it helped a lot.
Rented this car for a weekend trip and it was perfect. Brandon is a very nice person. Thanks for the service.
My first time using an electric car and is pretty easy, and economic. Mr. Tristan is very nice, respectful, responsible, punctual and friendly. I recommend rent this car for sure! I enjoyed my trip with this car.
This car drives nice and is in good condition. Otto made the pickup and drop off convenient. It was much faster than using the SEATAC airport rental agencies.
This is a great car and the owners are very nice and communicative people. I would certainly use them again and recommend them to anyone visiting the Seattle area.
I usually rent the silver taurus but it was unavailable at the time. I love this car just as much as i like the taurus. Same features ( buttons, lights, switches, etc in the same places. Nothing different. Only major difference is there's no foot brake with this car.. it's hand brake...There's a trunk button on the keys but it doesn't pop open all the way. You have to also lift it up. The car charges your phone even when it's off. I like the phone mount that i got. It's steady and stable. My phone never fell off or shifted. Smooth engine transmission with no issues. Also, Hung accomodated me at the ending of my trip and picked up the car instead of me bringing it back at 10pm pitch black at night. I could've brought it back earlier but i didn't know when i would be done with my errands , etc! so thanks again!
Great little car, host was super communicative, wish the car had Bluetooth to play music and not only for calls, but, overall a great economic car for a nice little Seattle getaway with my wife 🌴
Had a great experience with Ricky and the sonic! Will rent again when back in Seattle!
Fang was Very easy to communicate with and very understanding, the car was good and super gas saver for moving around Seattle
Definitely one of the best experience that I’ve had with Turo. Shawn and his buddy, Kyle were very prompt and accommodating with our trip. The car was clean and drives wonderfully. I would definitely reach out to both of them whenever we’re back in the area. Would recommend to anyone that wants to drive a superb car from great hosts.
Our trip was made so much nicer with Flowdy's help. He made sure it was easy to pick up our car when we landed and meet him to drop it off. We really appreciated our communication with Flowdy, he always got back to us in a timely fashion as well as checking in with us. I would definitely rent with Flowdy again. The car was perfect for our family of 4 and all of our luggage and great gas mileage. Thank you Flowdy. :)
Vasko is awesome! Communicative, clear, reliable peppy well maintained car that got me everywhere. He is my new go to Turo guy when in Seattle, he should be yours too!
Amazing vehicle! Would book again next time in Seattle area. Jon definitely made the trip smooth and easy!
Car drove great, really good gas mileage and Paul was the best host!! Responded quick and wanted to be of service any wa he could. Trip 10/10 would book again
Excellent car! Super clean!! Flowdy LLC was great and extremely accommodating. Will definitely be coming back to them for my next rental!!
This was the second trip with Rauhen and it was great. Thanks for accommodating the last min pickup location. The Mustang is still one of my favorite cars to drive.
So friendly. First trip to Seattle. Will definitely be using him again. Helpful and quick to respond very accommodating when my flight got delayed and when I had to depart he was very understanding. Would recommend to everyone and will be booking again in the future.
This was my first time using Turo, so I was a little nervous. Tristan was prompt, had great communication and the car was very clean and well maintained. This was a great rental experience and I will definitely do it again. I have already recommended Tristan and Turo to friends who visit the area frequently.
Andreas’ Elantra was super clean and worked perfectly for my day trip to Skajit Valley. There was an issue with the original car I was going to rent but he took care of me and everything ran incredibly smooth! Thank you!
The Honda Fit is a zippy little car, and much bigger inside than it would appear. Very smooth ride from Seattle to Bellingham and back. Brandon is easy going, good to work with!
Our entire experience when renting Corey’s Model 3 was exceptional. The car was spotless, charged, and ready for our trip. This car is a dream for road trips. Charging was super convenient too (all placed near food and restrooms). No range anxiety here! And surprisingly smooth and quiet. I would 100% this car again.
Roger was a great host. Flexible on pick up and drop off, and his car was clean and sanitized. Highly recommended fun and affordable way to travel in Seattle in a cool BMW. Thanks so much!
This was a super fun little car. Perfect for Seattle’s tiny streets. Aureliu was easy to work with. Everything was smooth and simple. I highly recommend.
This was my second time renting Cole and Brittni’s fantastic Jetta. It was another easy airport exchange and the car was great - just the right amount of luxury.
Mohammed was great! Very attentive. The car was clean and it was perfect for Seattle.
Car was exceptionally clean and super fun to drive! Pick-up and drop-off was seamless with no extra cost! I highly recommend this rental!
Anish was great! The car was perfect! The best car rental experience I have ever had. Thank you again for making my business trip more enjoyable.
Best car rental experience ever. The car is super clean, and Anish is very nice.
Great and clean car and fast response I will definitely be looking for him for my next trip thank you for everything
Oscar was an amazing companion during my stay in WA. Good on mileage, spacious and super fun with all the light features that it has. Great for adventures and very smooth when driving. Azil was also an amazing host. Quick responses to any questions I had. Very puntual and reliable. I definitely recommend to rent Oscar from Azil and partner next time you are in town. Thank you very much for a very reliable vehicle. Until the next time Oscar!
This was my first time using Turo, and Aureliu made it so easy and worry free! He was very flexible, accommodating, and the car was clean, fun, and in wonderful condition. I would not hesitate to use this service or rent from Aureliu again in the future!
Great car, great communication! I had to schedule an earlier flight home and Mohammed was very accommodating and came to meet me early in the morning. Will rent from him again when I come
Great communication and the car operated like a dream. Would definitely rent from Andreas again!
Chris saved my birthday trip. I picked up the car the same day I reserved it, and extended the time I would have it the day before I came back. Everything was perfect and he even volunteered to drop me off at the airport. The car was perfect, as was the price. Very grateful.
First off, what a beautiful car! Never driven a Tesla until this trip & I must say, it made the trip way more exciting. Definitely interested in purchasing one soon! Major thanks to the host for making the transition as easy and smooth. Awesome hosts!
Really wanted to rent an EV, without a tailpipe, but NONE of the usual rental companies offered them. Christopher’s nicely upgraded Bolt is in excellent shape; almost new, has a +250 range; pickup/drop off was easy. Christopher was very communicative as I was coming to pick it up and offered to explain features (I drive an EV so didn’t need much info). It’s a reasonable price, has SiriusXM and a nice phone interface, comes w/a myriad of charging cords as well as the EV charging cable if you can plug it in at night (which I did). Consider using the light rail system to greatly shorten the Uber drive from the airport, although the light rail is slower if there’s no traffic. Great experience, easy. I’ll do the same next time.
Had a great experience renting out the 2018 model 3. He gave a really good demo on how the car works since it was my first time driving one in the city.
Great car. Rides nice, clean inside, smelled great. Would rent again. David was super easy to work with.
The car had some dents, it said maintenance required, it was a little dirty, I was hoping it would’ve been sanitized and wiped up cleaner... but it was a great trip we had such a great time, the ac worked great, everything worked really well.
Awesome car, perfect pickup & dropoff at SeaTac, great experience, would gladly rent again!
Vladimir was prompt and super accommodating. This guy was awesome to work with. Car was beautiful as well and made the trip that much better. Thanks again so much Vladimir!
The car was clean, smelled good, drove well in the rain, and was overall great for our daytrips into the mountains and around the city. Mohammed was communicative, punctual, and super friendly. Definitely recommend!
Great host, great car. Clean and kept in good condition. Host offered to walk us through vehicle operation and was very flexible and communicative. Rest assured when renting from this host.
Christopher was a great host. I had to extend my trip a couple times and he was more than helpful. His car rides amazing and I had a great trip! Thanks again! Will go back if needed 😃
Andreas' Priuses are my go-to cars in the neighborhood: easy access, great mileage, and spotless interiors.
Miguel is polite, respectful, and very fair with his customers. Miguel kept open communication thoruought the trip and made me feel confident with my selection in renting his vehicle. I would recommend Miguel to anyone wanting a clean,sporty vehicle.
Tim was a great host! He met me and dropped the car off curbside at the arrivals floor at SeaTac. There were waters, chocolates and a welcome note inside the car! I would definitely rent from him again. Thanks Tim!
Great car, great service by Karen. Quick pickup, simple delivery, Loved the trip! I Would definitely recommend!
Ayo was AWESOME!!! Our first time using Turo - it could not have been easier. Ayo was very friendly, punctual, responds to text messages promptly. Couldn’t ask for more!! We rented the Acura TLX - very clean, sporty, handled well - no issues at all. I highly recommend renting your next car from Ayo 🤙🤙 Ayo - see you next time we are in WA 😎😎
Sean was super responsive, accommodating, and overall a great host. The car was a blast and super comfortable. Would recommend renting for a fun time.
My first time using Turo, and Rodney made it very easy. I would book with him any other time I’m in Seattle for sure.
This was my first time using Turo and it went flawlessly. Ryan was very responsive, and the car was great! I would definitely choose this car again for future trips.
Excellent experience! Ryan was wonderful to work with and had an awesome vehicle. I will use him again when I come visit Seattle again!
Spectacular car with a great owner! Ernest was very kind, helpful, courteous, friendly, and dependable! The service was exemplary. I will absolutely rent another car from Ernest in the future. 😁👍🏼
Very understanding . Always goes above and beyond. Needed a rental on short notice and Rod still made it happen. Appreciative! More than a great host. A great friend .
