Smooth car riding experience. The car itself is reliable and is great on mileage (something that was a great thing to have)! Kristiina was super flexible with remote pick-up/drop-off. She tailored to my needs and made such I was taken care of. I will most definitely be coming back to her for future rentals 😊
I love this car! Robert made the rental very easy and I look forward to the next chance I have to do it again. The car has the self-driving upgrade which is a blast on the open highway, it's also internet connected with Spotify and other entertainment options, and has a handy wireless phone charger.. No complaints at all. Thanks Robert!
Most amazing trip. Such an understanding and caring professional. Clean car and would rent again in a heart beat.
Car was spotless and ran like new. Michel was great and made the rental process easy.
Joseph was a great host. He was super easy to work with and made our trip a breeze. The car was clean and easy to use. We would love to rent from him again.
This was the smoothest car rental I’ve ever done. They met meet at the airport to both pick up and drop off which was great! The communication was easy and efficient. I would definitely rent with them again when I come back.
This trip was completed by this Tesla. Thank you frank for having a clean car and being punctual. This is an easy transaction
The accommodations were more extensive than any other rental I've ever experienced, turo or not. I felt so comfortable when issues would arise and I had to discuss changes. Mikal is young business man and extremely professional and knowledgeable. 10 out of 10 recommend.
Wonderful interactions with Isaac and loved the car. Definitely would recommend to others and rent again!
I enjoyed Christian’s vehicle and service. Hand off was easy. Instructions were clear. Car was clean. What else can you ask for? Oh...I know, a secondary person who is just as attentive to your needs. Desmond! Would DEFINITELY rent again!
Thanks for the trip. Great car, and thanks for helping so promptly with Turo's glitch!
As good as a car rental could be. Great car, joy to drive, gets about 200 miles with a 30 minute charge. Keep in mind it does not have full autopilot (with lane changes and “summon”) but the super chargers are free which saves a lot of coin. Billy is responsive and was generally on time for meeting. Would recommend and consider next time we’re in the Bay!
ZT provided the best experience we've had with Turo. When the weather called for rain the day of our original rental date, ZT accommodated us with a short notice change for the next day. Their willingness to deliver the Boxster to a location close to our residence at an extremely reasonable price, made check in and check out a simple process. The generous number of miles included in the plan ensured a full day of driving without having to be concerned with trip restrictions. This is our future go to for Turo.
Couldn’t have asked for a better experience. Very flexible and extremely easy to communicate with. Vehicle is fantastic and I will definitely be renting from him again.
Nice car and great host! Very accommodating and communicates well, makes it much more enjoyable!
Wade was the most flexible and accommodating host I’ve experienced thus far and will most definitely rent again! Thank you!
Amazing service, the car was clean and everything was perfect! Looking forward to working with him in the future
The car was clean and got us from point to B. Kristina was communicative and responded quickly.
Robert was super nice and really made himself available to answer any questions I had, which made me feel more comfortable as a first-time Tesla driver. The car was so great! Drove like a dream, sparkling clean, easy contactless pickup and drop off. Would definitely book this car with Robert again!
Great vehicle and great host. Jeremiah was very communicative about the over process and how to pickup the car. Great weekend, thank you!
We had an enjoyable trip with this clean and smooth ride, and Janet is extremely friendly and accommodating.
bitchin' camaro!!! this whip ran great. pretty well maintained. michael was great with flexibility on the return time. he was straight up that the car wasn't super clean, and i was ok with that. he offered to reimburse for the cleaning if i wanted...
Janet is an amazing host and makes the experience so seamless. Car drove amazing in the snow. 100% recommended!
Nice and clean car! Really appreciated that. Host was very responsive and had no problems communicating on pick up and drop off
Car drives like a baby! Super smooth, comfortable and great on gas! Owner is super communicative, car was very clean and was ready for pick up on time. Highly recommend!
Shining example of white glove service. I’ve rented Turo vehicles for hundreds of days, and Kevin stands out.
Pickup and drop off was super easy! The car was so smooth driving up north I would definitely book again :)
Yolanda provides a great car rental at a very affordable rate. It’s also really fun to drive, smooth, comfortable and gets excellent gas mileage. A+++
It was my first time using Turo. Much simpler than the traditional car rental service. The car was clean and Ruby was great to work with.
Solomon is great to rent from! The car was wonderful and spotless. Easy on the gas cost and zippy. He will continue to be my local "go-to" car rental resource!
Communicated clearly and was very friendly! Car itself was great and exactly as advertised. If Robert owned a fleet of cars I’d rent only from him.
Courtenay’s car was a huge life saver while mine is in the shop! She responded very quickly and was very flexible with me extending my time with the rental and the car drove smooth for the three weeks I rented. Zero complaints and i definitely would rent again this car again. Super easy drop off and pick up as well. Thank you so much Courtenay ✨
Excellent AWD car. Comes with Continental M+S rated tires. No issues with the rental.
Incredibly easy pick-up/drop-off and a ton of fun to take up Hwy 1. Thanks for a great ride Ryan!
Joe and Tessy were absolutely amazing! Joe was very accommodating, responsive and made the process from start to finish super easy. Tessy was super clean and so much fun to drive. Thanks so much for making my first time Turo/Tesla experience delightful!
Great experience! Leo was really communicative and it was a smooth pick up and drop off.
Excellent rental experience. Joseph clearly spent a lot of time cleaning the car and making it look immaculate. Great communication all around, especially with car features and pickup / return procedures. He was also flexible and overall great to work with. Will definitely look to rent Joseph’s Tesla again in the future.
Christian and his associate Desmond are amazing hosts. They were more than accommodating in pickup and drop off (particularly when we were a little late on the return!), thorough with their availability and instruction, and beyond friendly and communicative. They add a lot of thoughtful little touches, including easy pickup and drop off and your own profile in the Tesla for driving. It really makes the difference. The car is great, clean, and well maintained. It’s fantastic for daily and long distance trips—we wouldn’t have made it to Monterey for a day trip without the long range and got there with charge to spare. It’s a pleasure to drive and has such a great cruising feel I can’t imagine long trips any other way. Would absolutely rent again, thanks for making our day possible with some sweet wheels!
Janet was amazingly helpful to us after a different rental fell through last minute. The car was in excellent condition and she was flexible with us. Great experience.
As a turo regular since the beginning years ago, this is One of the coolest, smoothest, easiest cars I’ve ever driven with Turo! Kristina’s details and great communication made it even better. Will definitely be renting again.
Leo’s car was perfect!!! It was clean and even had a little bottle of hand sanitizer in the middle console. He also had an android and iPhone charger, which was GREAT because I totally forgot mine. The car drove very smoothly and I had no issue at all with it. I would definitely recommend anyone who is looking for an excellent inexpensive rental to him! Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!
Joseph and his associate Desmond were a breeze to rent with. They add a lot of thoughtful touches to renting prior to stepping in the vehicle including incredibly seamless pickup communication, my own Tesla profile in the car, and all the most delightful talk about the nuances of Tesla in general. The car rides like a dream and the long range makes quite a difference for a road trip day. We were able to get to Monterey and then some in less than one charge. The autopilot is fun, and makes a coastal cruise that much easier. Even when we were late in returning, Desmond was amenable and kind with the requirements for returning the car. Absolutely would recommend and rent again! Thanks for enabling a really amazing day!
Amazing host! Would rent a car from Solomon Again. Thank you for making it a great Turo Experience!
Great car, fair price, and friendly owner/renter! As I was browsing to rent a car (I like the Jaguar F-Type), I noticed there's one near me. The moment I made the reservation Gabriel was very communicative and responsive. When I went to pick up the car he was already at the pick up spot with the car. He answered all my questions.... Overall I had wonderful experience driving the Jaguar F-type....: beautiful and powdered sport car... Although I had rented the car for one day, I decided to extend rent for additional one day; when I requested extension Gabriel responded quickly and approved the new request timely (very responsive). Again, during the return Gabriel was already waiting at the designated drop off spot, and everything went smoothly. I'll definitely rent this car again...and highly recommend Gabriel! Best! Esayas
Rented with Melanie before! Cute and fun car. Melanie is flexible and is very responsive. Highly recommend.
Always responsive and easy to deal with! Will be renting from again as this is my 5th time haha 🙌🏻
Great Car, Very Smooth Drive, Very Clean & Spotless. Cant Wait To Rent Again Sometime Soon!
Joseph is a great host and his Tesla is an absolute blast to drive. He is extremely thorough in walking you through operating the car and really generous with little thoughtful details in the car that makes riding during COVID that much more pleasant. Absolutely will rent again from him! Thanks Joseph!
Christian was extremely accommodating, responsive and easy to work with. His car share manager and primary point of contact, Desmond, was fantastic — extremely quick to respond to all questions and concerns and knowledgeable about every detail of the car. The car itself was a dream to drive — I drove it round trip from Oakland to LA and it’s hard to imagine doing the drive in any other vehicle — particularly one without autopilot. Be warned: You’ll have trouble going back to a non-electric vehicle after this. Phenomenal experience all around!
Dwayne is very flexible and accommodating, and his car is great to drive as well -- would definitely rent again!
Second time I’ve rented sunshine’s car it’s always been smooth, easy car, with easy pick up and drop. Great communication.
Car was good on gas and moe replies quick when we needed to extend the trip or make changes . Ty
Jacob’s Corvette was perfect for my short trip to Oakland! Super cool guy and everything worked out great with the rental!
I had a GREAT experience renting Michael's Model 3. Michael's flexibility and punctuality was very much appreciated considering I landed in Oakland International Airport pretty late in the evening, We kept in touch before and after the rental to make sure the car pick up and return went smooth. I most definitely recommend booking a rental with Michael!
David was very helpful, car was clean and drove great, even added an additional day onto the rental to spend more time with the family during the holidays, which no no problem. Would definitely rent from David again. And we chatted about custom cars for a bit so another plus.
Fell in love with the car. Made the trip. Janet was helpful and made the entire process very seamless. Check in and check was so much easier than going through a rental car service. So happy with my experience!
Tony great about vehicle transfer. My 1st time using Turo and would use again especially if all the hosts are as good as Tony was. Curb service at the airport for us flying into Oakland. He was on his A game!
It was fantastic car! Leo’s Prius made my trip easy and smooth. Car is clean, neat and well-maintained. it runs great! Easy pick up and drop-off process. Leo is also very responsive, kind, and friendly. I highly recommend Leo and his vehicles!
To take such high quality care of their luxury cars is one thing. But to consistently offer such premium service elevates Janet and her husband into a very special realm of car share providers. There is a seamlessness to the experience with them, every time I rent one of their cars, that makes it so easy to enjoy the car and want to rent from them, again and again. Special cars and special people make this a very special experience. I highly recommend going with ONLY them as they are the best!
Kevin responded fast, great communication. Car was great! It was prepared, clean and was a very fast setup. Will be renting again!
Had to book this last minute due to another host canceling a day before my trip, and Aun was top notch about it, he was on time with a clean car as expected. From one host to another, 5 STARS!
Easy pick up, drop off. Flexible with extensions. Reliable car! Definitely would rent again , thanks Leo!
Excellent host. Very respectful of social distancing. Everything went smoothly. Ultra-clean car which is a blast to drive. Worked great for a birthday weekend trip with my wife!
Car was ready on time. Clean inside and out and exactly as advertised. No hassle at the start or end. Could not have been better. I certainly recommend renting from Rudy.
It was a breeze of renting from Robert. And the car was a dream to drive. Can’t go wrong renting this vehicle. The communication was timely. I really enjoyed driving my first Tesla and use of Turo.
