Average ratings for vans on Turo
Great car and definitely helped that it’s all electric with these high gas prices!!
Perfect vehicle for both the highway and city. Daphne is an amazing communicator with extremely reasonable rental rates. I plan on renting whenever I come to the Bay. 10/10 would recommend.
Quick and easy pickup and drop off! Cheaper than rental companies. Renter was the Best!
Perfect vehicle for a quick trip outside of San Francisco with the family. Joy to drive
Beautiful vehicle, leather seats were a nice bonus. Seems to have all the features you would need on a new vehicle. Very nice to have a hybrid when you aren’t used to these gas prices! Host was helpful, and very clear. Definitely would recommend!
Very responsive to any and all questions, and trust me there were a lot of questions. The car was perfect for our day trip down the coast, especially with the high gas prices.
Raishanah was on time with a very clean car. We would use her again next time we travel to San Francisco.
Raushanah was great from beginning to the end. Will definitely book with her again if I'm ever in the San Francisco area.
Minh was an absolutely wonderful host. His delivery was timely, he was very responsive throughout our rental, answered any questions we had, and was super accommodating regarding our drop-off time. I highly recommend him above any car rental agency certainly, and he provided me and my family with the best Turo experience we’ve had so far. Next time we’re in SF we’ll be renting from Minh without a doubt!
The car was amazing and Kenneth is super cool and available. I will be back in San Francisco and for sure I’ll take it again
Great vehicle for exploring the streets of San Francisco and surrounding area. Checking in and out from the airport parking was very easy and convenient.
Jon and Michelle were great! Dropped off the car at our hotel in San Francisco and returned right at our departure terminal! SUV was clean and comfortable. Highly recommend!! Thanks again!
Thank you Jon - you helped us make this trip unforgettable. The car was perfect for our week in Napa. I would definitely do this again on our visit to San Francisco!
We loved the "Performance Oreo"! Nicholas was very communicative and the rental process was easy and seamless. Great car, will definitely rent again.
We rented this vehicle for a 5 day trip from San Francisco to Napa and back. The car performed beautifully and was in exceptional condition. Shiv was available and easy to communicate with. I would rent from him again.
Jon & Michelle were very easy to work with. The Q7 was very clean, fun to drive and perfect for our visit to Monterey Peninsula from San Francisco.
Excellent SUV condition, very clean. Billy is very cooperative, & friendly. Would always love to rent from him whenever I m in San Francisco.
Vehicle was clean and drove very well. Super convenient pickup and drop off at airport. Experiences like this make me wonder why I ever rented through car rental companies.
My first time using Turo. I was lucky to rent from Irakli from San Francisco. Highly recommend Turo especially Irakli.
Ian was great and super responsive. The car was perfect for our day trip from San Francisco up to Napa!
Absolutely loved the Cayenne. Very smooth and was surprisingly good on gas. Jon and Michelle were very helpful on pickup and drop off of the vehicle. Would rent from them again when back in San Francisco.
Thoroughly enjoyed renting Mattia's car for my family of 8 during a vacation in San Francisco. Mattia was very personable and car was very clean when picked up. The car was also easy to drive and handled San Francisco hills with no problem!
Bradley, car was perfect for our trip to San Francisco. Roomy, comfortable and very clean. Pick up and drop off we’re very easy and Bradley was quick to respond to any questions we had. Would definitely book with him again!
Great day drip to San Francisco. great car. Thanks for letting us use your car to see the sites
They are super friendly, easy going, and responsive host. I would love to get their vehicle rented if I visit San Francisco again.
Yisheng is a terrific and accommodating host! Car pickup and drop-off at airport went very smooth. We would 100% recommend him and his vehicle. Hope to use again next time we’re in San Francisco.
Pablo's acura RDX is really fun car to drive. Its a new car, clean and parked at airport for self check in. Pablo is amazing host. He is really responsive and understanding. I would definitely recommend to rent from Pablo if you are visiting San Francisco.
Ryan was an awesome host. Brand new Tesla and ours is older so he took the time to walk us through new features. The car was perfectly clean and given the gas prices and chargers available everywhere it was a perfect add to our trip. Ryan was extremely responsive and met us right on time at the airport. Highly recommended!
This trip went very smoothly from pick up to drop off. I highly recommend Gustavo for car rentals in the San Francisco area!
Great car, owner communicated quickly. Enjoyed our adventure in San Francisco! Thank you!!
Audley was professional and thorough with communication from start to finish., so gracious. Loved the car and looking forward to visiting San Francisco again soon.
Jon and his team are top notch! Excellent communication, super clean car and overall seamless experience. Will book again next time we’re in San Francisco.
I would give 10 stars if was possible. This was the best car rental experience that I ever had. The host was always available for us, before and during the trip. The car was awesome too. Very comfortable. I will rent this car every time I come to San Francisco or any car that this host offers.
Nese is a very helpful and generous host and her car is great. It has lots of safety features which was reassuring for me, not used to driving in San Francisco. The location was near our hotel and the pickup and communication etc couldn't have been easier. This was my first Turo trip and it was so good.
Tate was super communicative from the very beginning and made the whole process so easy. His car was immaculately clean and so fun to drive, especially in the hilly towns north of San Francisco. 10/10 would recommend renting this car (and from Tate!). I will definitely rent it again next time I’m back in the area.
Excellent service. The guys were really friendly and helpful. Picking up and dropping off the car was very easy. I was a bit nervous about renting from a non-traditional car rental agency, but discovered my own insurance would cover me. It also allowed me to rent something other than a Toyota Corolla, And was very reasonably priced. I would rent from S&D again.
Zhiyu was an amazing host. He answered my questions right away and made picking up and dropping off a breeze!! I highly recommend renting from him when you’re in the San Francisco area
Minh is awesome! Responds promptly and made our car experience in San Francisco a breeze.
Wonderful car & great host! Will definitely be renting from Sergey anytime I’m in the San Francisco area. Highly recommend!
We had such a great experience taking this car from San Francisco to wine country! Rolando was so accommodating and delivered the Jeep to us in pristine condition.
I really liked the car and the owner, a very pleasant and responsive man, when I will be in San Francisco, I will contact you again, thank you
Car was as expected and a nice drive. Junjian was very responsive to my questions as a first time Turo guest. Pick-up and drop-off were easy and incredibly much easier than my prior use of car rental companies at SFO. I would definitely use Turo and Junjian again.
Zhiyu is a very attentive Turo host. He was very accommodating with me and made the rental process very easy. He was very quick to respond to any communications. The Macan I rented was clean, drove great, and looked great inside and out. I would recommend renting from Zhiyu. When I’m back in San Francisco I hope to be able to rent from him again.
Amazing service great clean car definitely recommend using bud anytime I come to San Francisco 😁
Amazing vehicle! Bret made pick-up and drop-off a breeze! Would rent again next time we’re in San Francisco.
Yanqi is a perfect host if you’re in San Francisco and need a car he’s your guy. This was my first turo booking and hope every host I use in the future is so accommodating like yanqi. And for the car very nice ride and excellent and gas . Thank you yanqi your really came thru.
Ryan (and the Model Y) were incredible. I’m town visiting San Francisco and needed a car to get to San Jose and surrounding areas for the day and the Y felt just like our 3. Needed help with some questions about Turo and Ryan was always immediately available. Could not ask for anything better!
The vehicle and host were awesome. Will definitely use them again when we come back to San Francisco
The car was great! Clean sporty and an overall great experience. Looking forward to my next visit to San Francisco. Thanks Ali!
This Highlander was in exceptional condition and turned out to be a good choice for our family vacation to San Francisco. The host was easy to communicate with and even went through the trouble of purchasing a new baby seat to ensure that they had what my family needed for this stay. Would rent again if we’re ever back in the Bay Area.
This was my first experience with Turo, and we had an exceptional time. Minh was really wonderful. My request was pretty last minute, and he accommodated me without any issue. The Model Y we drove was spotless, and our pickup/drop off location was very convenient. I will definitely be using Minh again next time I’m in San Francisco. Thank you!
Bucky was great for our San Francisco and Napa Valley adventures! Wenzi was wonderfully response and receptive to requests for later pick up and location change at drop off. Great host and would definitely rent Bucky again when in the Bay!
