I will rent from Jesus EVERY time I’m in Chicago! I have to admit, I was a little hesitant to try Turo, but I love Air BnB, and this is like Air BnB for cars! So glad I tried it. Just like Air BnB, TRUST THE REVIEWS. I chose Jesus because his reviews were so outstanding, and they did not disappoint. He was kind, courteous, helpful, accommodating, and had excellent communication, which is such an asset when you’re in a new city. If you’re looking at other renters, STOP. THIS IS YOUR GUY.

Jesse is the man. He communicates well and was a pleasure to work with. Pick-up and drop-off was a breeze at Midway and the car was perfect for cruising around Chicago. You will not be disappointed if you choose Jesse and his car!

This was the best rental I've had with Turo so far (I've been a customer for 3 years). This little red car had a sporty feel with great gas mileage. Pick-up/Drop-off was simple and convenient, car was clean and smoke-free and communication with Justin was very easy and prompt when needed. I'll definitely rent from him again!

Justin is my go to for my rentals in the Chicago area. His cars are always clean and delivered on time, making it really easy to work with. I highly recommend Justin.

Hit the road

When you’ve had your share of Chi-town adventures, rev the engine in your Chicago car rental alternative and see what the surrounding Chicagoland area has to offer.

Starved Rock State Park

Hop in your Chicago car rental alternative for the quick 100-mile drive to this beautiful park, well-known for its many dramatic sandstone canyons and waterfalls carved about by glaciers.

Indiana Dunes National Park

Make the hour and a half drive to the southern shores of Lake Michigan in a Chicago car rental alternative to find pristine beaches, towering sand dunes, and wild marshland.

Milwaukee, WI

Smaller than Chicago, but arguably just as fun, Milwaukee is home to all variety of festivals and museums, proud sports teams, and renowned breweries — and it’s only a two-hour drive north in a Chicago car rental alternative.

Amazingly nice person! Didn’t sit there and nickel and dime us for anything! We went through one toll (75 cents I think) and didn’t charge us! Extremely clean nice car and very flexible with the flight issues we had. If you rent a car in Chicago it needs to be from Elina!!!!

Will has great car. I always wanted to drive one. This Turo gave me the oppertunity. In the past I would use the major car rental companies and it always turned into a hassle one way or the other. “Will” took care of that also while juggling a couple of unforscene problems. When you rent a car from “Will” he has a good support system so it’s not just him , that’s why I definitely am going to use him in the future.

Easier than using a car rental agency. John was wonderful. Let us use GPS holder without charge, cell phone cords and charger without charge and his electronic toll pass that we pay him back for tolls. These small conveniences add up. He's just great to work with making an easier trip. Great vehicle too super clean.

Gabby made renting a car through Turo a great experience. She had her car waiting for me at the airport, so there was no waiting in a car rental line. Drop off was just as easy, as I just parked and went right into the airport. Her car was clean, and she always got right back to me whenever I sent her a message. I would absolutely rent from Gabby in the future!

Michael was a pleasure to deal with from start to finish. Besides providing a well kept car with super gas mileage, Michael included 1000 miles, an EZ PASS and cell phone charging cables. He was personable and accessible, and gave prompt and curbside delivery. We highly recommend Michael. He was SO much less stressful to work with than many standard car rental companies we have used. We're glad we found him.

This was my first time using Turo and I was very satisfied. Our host Elina was great and very nice. I can now see first hand why she receives excellent reviews. She makes getting in and out of Chicago O’Hare a breeze. She picked us up right on time at the terminal and drove us to a location just outside the airport. Within minutes, we were on our way. Probably saved over half an hour over waiting in line at the rental car location. Her car (Ford Focus) was late model, very clean and drove great. We could tell she was very meticulous with her cars. When we got to our return location an hour early, we contacted her and she was there within a few minutes to take us back to the airport. The cost for using Turo was much better than a rental car with the added convenience. Most highly recommend Turo and this host.

I was a little skeptical about driving a Mercedes for that cheap price. I was thinking either the car wouldn’t be good or it’s a scam. But honestly, Steve is an amazing gentleman to do business with. I still can’t believe I drove such a beautiful vehicle for that price. Steve over communicated to get me up to speed on schedule and also made sure everything was going well while I had the vehicle. This is my first trip with Turo and Steve has really given me a very good first impression. Thank you Steve for all your help. I’ll make sure to find you whenever I come to Chicago. I highly recommend Steve to everyone who wants to enjoy riding in a beautiful luxury car for less.

This was my first time using Turo & Michael was amazing! If I had any questions he answered them back in a timely manner, he was very nice, the car was perfect for what I needed out of my trip. I would/will definitely be contacting Michael again when using turo. By using Turo, I was able to pay almost more than half of what a car rental would’ve charged me from the airport. This was a great experience I would definitely recommend trying the Turo app to friends & family. Pick up & drop off at he airport was a breeze, I didn’t have to deal with any paperwork like at a car rental place or anything. If you’re in Chicago definitely contact Michael, he was awesome!

I’ve rented from Dee several times now. His cars are always clean, rates fair, and he and his wife are always so nice and easy to work with. This is the first time I rented his Lexus and the car was awesome! Clean and fully loaded! Heated/cooling seats, Navigation, Moonroof, etc. AND it’s a luxury All-Wheel Drive sedan—perfect for Chicago! Thanks again Dee for another phenomenal experience! I’m happy to see your fleet grow so I have multiple dependable options when I’m in town for work.

Tianshuang‘s 7 series is the definition of perfect for Turo trip. This car is amazing. The moment you start it you immediately feel the elegant of the luxury BMW. Head up display, M sport packages etc really make me feel like Tom Cruise of the mission impossible. The flat Matte black paint is beautifully unreal!! Draw a lot of attention when we get to the club. Tianshuang is amazing! He is super flexible and a clear and responsive communicator. Renting from him is really hustle free. I will only rent from him when I came to Chicago.

Steve is a good businessman and a great guy. Renting a vehicle from him is better than any rental service, the pure essence of luxury just corses through you when riding in one of his BMW or Mercedes models. Will only rent from him when in Chicago!

Tesla Model 3 2019
Foreign Sport Rental was FANTASTIC! This was my first time using Turo and they made me feel secure throughout the whole process starting with their quick response time to all my messages. I'm considering buying a Tesla and wanted to try it out for a few days to see how the charging went on my 110v (no problem getting to full charge daily). This is a new 2019 Tesla so I was terrified of something happening to their car (definitely recommend getting mid range insurance). Pick up and drop off was a breeze (they responded right away when I asked if I could return it earlier than arranged). Car was in immaculate condition inside and out (I felt awful when a tree got gunk on the car so messaged the owner. They wash it so no big deal). It was fun trying out all the features I've only seen on YouTube. Only draw back was it took me a half hour to get used to regenerative breaking but now I love it. Highly recommend this car and Foreign Sport Rental!

Eric was a first class person to rent this car from. The car suited our purposes and was easy to pick up and return. What made this rental stand out was his excellent communication throughout the trip. There was a very minor issue with the car during our rental but we had great communication, which gave us both peace of mind. It was fun to drive a more fun car than the typical rental.

I normally drive the i3 and Mini Cooper (both BMW) in Europe so I was pretty excited to get behind the Series 5 sportspack from Steven. The 2-week experience was in general 5 stars but I like to leave fair reviews for future Turo drivers so here we go: Pros: 1. The car was great, especially comfy on the ride from Chicago to Madison 2. Great pickup on the highway when you need to switch lanes. Definitely switch to Sports mode (shift the gear to the left to engage) 3. Even though I thought I wouldn't need it, the heated seats and wheel actually came in handy for a couple of those chilly/rainy evenings (despite the fact that I rented in early summer. Oh well, Chicago..) 4. Roomy in front and the back. Loved the sunshades in the back. 5. Dropping off the car in his truck-trailer and picking it up in the same way is a really professional touch with a massive cool-factor. 6. Affordable. I got a great rate for the 2-weeks! Cons: 1. No iPass. I'm happy to pay for the toll amounts afterwards through Turo or PayPal (I just value the convenience of iPass over carrying change in the car. It's also cheaper.) 2. There's limited room at the airport terminal for pick-up and drop-off so transfer of keys and car handover is almost too quick! I would recommend a calmer staging area near the airport for pick-up/drop-off (like a large parking lot/gas station) 3. The car wasn't as clean when I picked it up. Would've liked a deep clean before it was delivered to me. I actually found a boarding pass of the previous Turo driver in the seat (privacy!). Also, halfway through the trip I had to top up a quart of engine oil. The bluetooth seemed a little buggy at times. Overall, I'd rent from Steven again as long as he works out some of these details.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ 5-star Turo rental and renter, best in Chicago. This is my 4th rental from Tianshuang. The Alfa Romeo 4C is a reasonably priced car with super-car qualities. It will turns heads and give you a great driving experience. Loud Italian-engine, even "louder" Italian looks. Great gas mileage, even when driving is as intended. With 2500(ish) pounds distributed 38/62, this rear-engined car is under 4 foot tall and puts the seats center-weight of the car. This weight-distribution is perfect for the rear-tires to get driving traction and the front to get steering traction. This and the carbon-fiber tub stiffness make the handling capabilities of this car unreal. Handling-wise there is nothing at this price range to even compare; /M2, Lotus, 718, TT-RS - out-corners them all. The engine is a tiny 1.75ltr that get amazing power-to-weight and power-to-displacement performance. It's fast-revving and has a boost-feel when the turbo fully kicks in. It's a really fun car to drive.

It was my first time renting a car through Turo but it was really easy. Christiaan is communicative and both pickup and return was hassle free. The car is really easy to drive around town and very cheap. Would definitely recommend!

Great experience our first with TURO. Eric the owner of the car we rented went way out of his way to accommodate us. The pick up and return of the car could not have been more convenient and noting that our flight in was half an hour late Eric and the car were at curb side ready to go as we first walked out of O’Hare. A commercial rental agency would have been much more of a hassle. We were immediately on our way with a great car and the return was even easier.

Not an amazing car, but with 1500 miles before charges and a low rate it's a good deal. It's a little worn, but had no mechanical issues. All in all a good ride for the price. I'd rent again.

We rented Andrews Nissan for transportation to my family reunion. We had a great rental experience. The process between Andrew and myself was easy peasy and very convenient. The pick is only 18 mins. from where I live driving. Andrew even offered to allow us to rent his car again if it available when needed. I definitely will rent again from him. My family loved his car.
