Hi all, how do I go about finding a small convertible car to rent from Oct. 5th to the 10th? I'd sure like to find a Saturn Sky or something very similar. I am coming up with the normal car rental stuff on searches for convertible car rental in Boston.

Many thanks in advance!

The 6 convertibles for rent by the normal companies in Boston have been sent to Florida.

Try Turo - it's a car sharing program but for longer terms.

The Saturn Sky was discontinued in 2010. You're not going to find a 7 year old car at a rental company.

Hertz rents Ford Mustang convertibles. It will be a special order at this time of year, however, and October 5 may not be enough notice.

Maybe you could join a car sharing program like ZipCar. They have all different kinds of cars. Perhaps they have a convertible you can reserve.

Call a local Enterprise branch directly, they can usually find a convertible for you.

I 2nd trying Turo, you can definitely rent some unique cars through that program.


The normal agencies have probably sent the convertibles they have south where they can be in use all year round. If they do have any left up here, it's probably a Mustang or Camaro convertible.

3rd for Turo. I've used it twice for unique rentals in the area. It's the "airbnb" of rental cars.

Right now due to new laws to protect Turo. Turo is the exclusive provider of convertibles in Boston
