What a great guy! I had to go out of town pretty last minute during his rental and he was so easy going and understanding! He followed my (quite lengthy) instructions to drop off my car, perfectly! Mahalo and I look forward to seeing you again in a couple weeks, Andre!
It was a pleasure to rent my car to Andre. He loves cars and is a true car enthusiast and as such knows how to take care of it like one should. I would happily rent to him again and encourage others as well. Thanks Andre!
I'm thrilled to hear that Andre made family memories through the RelayRides car share. It was interesting to hear how many glances the car got because the vehicle is in limited production. Andre was timely in returning the vehicle. Andre returned the car with a full tank of gas as expected. As a bonus, Andre is a very intelligent & fascinating individual.
A truly exceptional experience. One of the best things about RelayRides is meeting new people who are interesting and enthusiastic. That's Andre for sure. He's also prompt, respectful, and relatable. I think he understands that "customer service" goes both ways, and that's really what makes an ordinary transaction extraordinary. Highly recommended!
Andre was a pleasure to rent to. He and his travel companion arrived early because of their flight but were nice enough to email me as soon as they knew which gave me plenty of time to adjust my plans. The car was returned promptly and still in the same beautiful condition I left her. A very smooth transaction; I'd be happy to rent to Andre again.
Andre's 911 is utterly beautiful. My fiancée and I loved driving the car around and it looks like we may be getting one in the future too! Andre washed the car the day I picked up the car and was extremely thorough in showing us anything else we needed to know.
Andre is meticulous in his car's upkeep and it really shows. The car might be almost 10 years old, but it still looks like it rolled off the lot yesterday.
Andre's 911 made our trip down to Carmel one for the books. My husband spent the whole trip home scheming to buy one. It's in immaculate condition and handles beautifully. The Bose speakers are excellent, but there is no hookup for a phone, so bring a CD or two for the ride.
Andre was a delight to work with, even when we were a bit late to pick up the car. He walked us through features and intricacies of the vehicle very thoroughly. We went over mileage and he was super prompt with the reimbursement request.
All in all a great experience! Will certainly do it again.
This was amazing. We rented this from Andre for my wife's 50th birthday. He was very nice, walked us through the car's features, and handed us the key. The car is fantastic -- pristine condition, handles like a high end sports car: hugs the road, accelerates beautifully, corners with barely a tilt. Even when I was a passenger I loved the ride. My wife enjoyed the winding hills by the coast and the experience of driving such an amazing vehicle. We were a bit over mileage but were more than happy to cover the cost. Entire experience was perfect. Thank you again, Andre!
This was my 1st experience with RelayRides and I can surely say that it was amazing. The car - a very clean example of a Porsche 911 S. It was well cared for and maintained and was the perfect equipment for my trip from SFO down highway 1 to Big Sur. The owner - Andre made this experience seamless. He provided excellent communication, was timely and was very pleasant to work with. I look forward to return trips with RelayRides in the future!
Communication with Andre was simply flawless.
He is extremely well taking care of his car and that makes the experience even more enjoyable.
Not that I have to discuss the Porsche 911 performances however I have to say this car has been above and beyond my expectations -so fun to drive! I look forward to renting it again!
If you're scanning through RelayRides' excellent selection of cars available in the Bay area - I'll invite you now to close those other tabs and just put yourself down for Andre's 997 911. Andre was simply excellent - and his Porsche exceeded expectations for our romantic jaunt to Napa Valley for the weekend. Immaculate and exceptionally well maintained, this 911 is the perfect mode of transportation for California's exceptional roads. The clutch and transmission felt like they had the same take-up from the dealer when new, the motor ran without hiccup, and there is simply no better way to explore the Bay area and points beyond. Andre was kind enough to meet us at the airport - the car was a surprise for my boyfriend - and maintain the illusion until he handed over the keys. He explained in detail the features of the car - I couldn't ask for a better first experience with RelayRides. *Highly* recommend this 911.
I rented Andre's 911 last Spring for a trip to Sonoma. It was the perfect car for all the winding roads! The car was in perfect condition and Andre was helpful and responsive. I would rent again in a heartbeat.
I highly recommend Andre, his 911, and Relay Rides. Andre was friendly and responsive in all communications. His 911 was beautiful and a pleasure to drive. And Relay Rides was easier to use than a traditional rental car company with a much more interesting selection of vehicles.
Andre has offered a meticulously maintained 2006 Porsche 911 Carrera S up for rental and it is a stunning drive. Handling, performance, and that exhaust note are superb as expected but just strolling down the road is a treat. This unique experience was well worth the opportunity and nothing short of extraordinary. Can't wait till next time!
I've never rented from Relay Rides before. In September I have an amazing road trip lined up covering some of the most spectacular roads in European Alps. I've made a decision to Rent a Porsche 911 for the trip and I have been looking for an opportunity to rent and test drive a 911 close to home on familiar roads before heading to Europe. Browsing the internet I found Andre's Porsche. Based on amazing reviews I decided to give Relay Rides a try.
Andre is a very friendly and nice guy, I felt welcome at his place when I showed up to pick up the car. He did great job giving me overview of the car, answering all my questions and making sure I am familiar with Relay Rides rental rules.
The car is in top notch condition both visually and mechanically! It was a real pleasure to drive it on some of my favorite curvy Bay Area roads. Of course I could not stop driving, so I ended up putting more miles than included in the reservation, but this was totally worth the price! :)
Thank you to Andre and Relay Rides for a wonderful weekend experience! I am now ready for my trip to Europe! :)
Can not say enough positive words about Andre, the vehicle or the process of retreiving/dropping off. Car was spotless -- Andre was punctual, communicative and flexible to small time changes on both ends of trip. And to top it off, he dropped us off at SFO. Fantastic experience and would recommend to anyone. Thanks!
Andre was easy to work and communicate with. We inspected the car together and he went over the car's features. Andre's Porsche is very well maintained. It was a great experience making a special occasion even more memorable. Thank's Andre.
Rented and re's porsche for a friend's wedding and couldn't have been happier with the experience. The car looks stunning is really fun to drive. It was my first time driving a porsche and I'll remember it for quite some time. Highly recommended!
Thanks to Andre for renting me his Volt. It was way easier than I thought it would be. Loved the car and am going to buy one. It was a great way to try one out for a while to see if it worked for my lifestyle. Andre was very easy to communicate with. Thanks
Andre was a true professional. The rental experience was SOOOO easy, and he even offered to drop us at the airport after we returned the car.
His car...what can I say. I'm already dreaming of getting back out to San Francisco to rent it again. Or buy one of my own. It's in great condition and very fun to drive. I'm already referring my brother to Andre for his upcoming trip, and I hope to do business with Andre again.
It was a true pleasure.
Andre's Volt is great. We rented it for a week to try out the Volt before buying one. Andre was easy to work with on pick up and delivery. We didn't use a drop of gas all week and the HOV lane stickers cut my wife's commute time in half.
We rented Andre's car for our wedding and the first few days of our honeymoon. The car was as promised and the process could not have been more smooth. It was a pleasure to meet Andre, and he even gave us a ride to the airport when we returned the car. Highly recommended!
We treated ourselves to a weekend away for our 10th wedding anniversary and RR delivered the perfect experience (and an amazing car!). Andre ensured the whole process was effortless, so much so I'll definitely be back, and may very well become a renter myself!
Andre truly handles himself like a professional. He truly cared about my experience with his car and wanted to make sure it was what I wanted. His Porsche was an amazing machine. One of the purest driving experiences I have ever had. Thanks Andre!!!
This was a surprise for my husband's birthday and it couldn't have gone smoother. Andre was incredible to rent from and his car was in pristine condition. I will definitely be renting his Porsche again...and so should you!! A+++
This is one of CEO Andre Haddad's cars and it's rare to find a Volt to rent. The car was exactly as promised and it gave me an opportunity to learn about a unique car that I am tempted to purchase.
Am I reviewing Relay Rides or Andre and the Volt? If I'm reviewing Andre and the Volt, this experience was far superior to that of a traditional rental company. Bear in mind that you will usually be asked to take the extra step of providing additional driver info (if non-USA) and of having the auto washed inside and out before you return it.
If I am reviewing Relay Rides, that's a little tougher because each each owner will respond differently / have different requirements. The concept is sound and the rental options and the big plus. If you wish to make rental reservations over the phone, you're SOL.
So, on the whole, in the future, I would look to Relay Rides before I looked at traditional car rental companies.
The car is a beauty. This was such an amazing, easy, carefree experience. The car is in great shape and was ready to go when I arrived. Andre is an amazing host and will tell you everything you need to know. I highly recommend this car for those who want to drive something made for the roads of California. Thank you for being so accommodating and allowing this car to be a rental.
I took Andre's car out for a nice weekend tour with my wife. Andre actually washed the car and filled up the tank before we met. Everything was perfect and who doesn't like to take a Porsche 911 for a spin - it was so much fun. Thanks Andre for sharing your car.
Andre was extremely easy to work with and very accommodating when my flight was cancelled and I needed to pick up the car later than planned. The car is beautiful, exactly as pictured. It made our week in Napa/San Francisco more enjoyable. I would definitely recommend Andre and his Porsche for anyone wanting to drive something a little more fun than the bland cars offered by the large rental fleets.
Excellent experience, actually, better than traditional rental car agencies. I suppose my travel to the car's location was a little time consuming as it was across town but overall, the whole experience was painless. Andre is a great guy, too.
Andre and his car were great!!! I LOVED that it had a car pool lane sticker. Made my commute for the evening so much easier!! Wish I had time to charge it so I could have taken advantage of that a little more but there's always next time! Andre was super easy to get in touch with and responded to texts quickly. The pick up and drop off were a piece of cake! One thing to know is that it might be parked in a metered spot so be sure to communicate if you aren't picking it up right when you reserve it ahead of time. Everything was great though and I can't wait to rent it again!
Andre was extremely nice and very easy to work with on the Porsche rental. Upon pickup, the car was immaculate. Andre spent about 10 minutes going over the basics amenities of the car. It made for an awesome weekend as got to travel in style. The Porsche was fun to drive and absolutely a must rent again when we are in the SF area.
Thanks for making it a fun weekend, we will be back soon! Keep up the good work!
