Way better than a rental car

Keep it real in Oakland

Fueled by a legacy of activism and social justice, Oakland is not only an incredibly fun city full of art, music, and food from all over the world, but a community that revels in its history, hometown heroes, and unwavering spirit. From the tilted cabin that’s the city’s oldest bar to the gold, glittering walls of the Fox Theater, there are many ways the Town will charm you.

Pick up your Oakland airport car rental alternative so you can get from the game to Fenton’s ice cream parlor, then into the hills to commune with the redwoods, like it’s no big deal.

Oakland favorites

You could spend your entire visit to Oakland sampling the fine foods and beverages, but there more than a few places to work up an appetite between bites.

purple lines

Lake Merritt

This jewel in the middle of town is a classic meeting spot for everyone, from runners and boaters to slackliners and children on their way to Fairyland. Bring a picnic and watch out for the geese.

Watch the Athletics

The Oakland A’s are soon to be the last major professional sports team in Oakland, with the Raiders relocating to Las Vegas and the Warriors moving across the Bay next season. See the A’s at the Coliseum for authentic Oakland sports.

Oakland Museum of California

From Friday night dancing with food trucks to exhibits on sneakers and local queer history, this lively museum is always gathering people. Pop on to the roof for an exceptional garden and terrace.

Renting this beautiful GTS from Andre could not have gone smoother. Communication was always prompt from start to finish, and the 911 was fully detailed and ready to go as soon as I arrived for pick-up. It was tough to say goodbye to such an incredible car, but at least the drop-off process was exceptionally easy. I highly recommend Andre and his GTS for anyone considering renting!
David S.- 2 October 2021
An amazing car made for an amazing weekend trip to the Napa Valley! The car was detailed and ready to go, pickup and drop off were effortless. Andre was a wonderful host and would definitely use again in the future 100%.

Great car, has Bose sound and is very clean. Turo Go dropoff / pickup was great. Lots of street parking for my car.

Skip the car rental counter

Hit the road

The beauty of the Bay Area is the ease with which you can hit the coast, the mountains, and everything in between. Book an Oakland car rental alternative on Turo to bask in the outdoors.

Way better than a rental car

The Russian River

Summer is notoriously hard to come by in the bay, but a trip to Guerneville, or any river town, in your Oakland car rental alternative will give you hot temps and chill water, perfect for a lazy tube.

Santa Cruz

Throw your best hoodie in your Oakland car rental alternative and head south to this quintessential Norcal surf town, where you can hike Wilder Ranch or catch a wave at its world-famous breaks.

Calistoga

Up the road from both Sonoma and Napa, guide your Oakland car rental alternative through the vineyards to this spa haven, where you can soak in a mud bath after your wine tastings.

We had some technical difficulties with the vehicle but Leo was very helpful and understanding in trying to be sure we were well taken care of! Very clear instructions for the rental process!

As a first-time TURO renter, I was skeptical cause the process seems too easy. Luckily I found David as a Host, he answered all my questions promptly weeks before my rental date, explaining in detail all the processes involved and assured me that everything is in place. He even went above and beyond when my arrival time got delayed at 11 PM and returning the car earlier than expected without any issues to him, really grateful for that. David's Ford Escape 2016 when handed over to me was spotless in and out, drives great, and has good mileage. He even included pocket hand sanitizers, spare facemasks, and wipe-out sanitizer. If you are a techie, you'll gonna appreciate all the charging cables provided for you, lightning, USB C, and even micro USB, plus there is a battery bank when needed. You just can't have this kind of service from the BIG rental companies, from booking, curbside piclk-up and return, no more waiting in lines, no more hassle. This is just the best car rental experience I have ever had, BIG thank you to David for this awesome experience, highly recommended, and will definitely rent from him again next time!!!

Flew into the Bay Area to Oakland airport and checked website stated car rental center closed at 8:30pm on weekdays for pickup. Bad thing is we arrived at 930pm, found Trevor’s profile and rented hi Porsche, similar to my vehicle knew what to expect. Car was great, well maintained, clean and communication with Trevor was superb. I fly into the Bay Area twice a month because it’s where I was born and raised and family still live here so will definitely be utilizing a Trevor service again. Highly recommend for the Bay Area and also had free delivery to the airport where he met us and the drop off was easy at the parking lot.

Great, smooth ride and clean. Raymond was great with communication as we were touring the city and needed more time to pick up our car. He was very flexible with our pick up time. We arrived and was greeted by Raymond and we're able to start our trip. The car was smooth through the mountains and great with handling. The car had amazing space in the cab, as it was needed through our week rental. 10 out of 10 rent again.

This is a fantastic value! The generous mileage and included superchargers made this a great experience on our little road trip. OAK -> Santa Cruz -> Monterey -> SF (via PCH) -> Sonoma -> SFO Chris was attentive and helpful before, during, and after the trip. The car itself was as expected and gave us no issues. It held our family of four with a ton of luggage comfortably. Superchargers are the way to go if they are convenient!

The car was so clean and easy to drive! Saloni and her husband were so accommodating with pick up and drop off and was very easy to communicate with them which was a huge plus for us since time was of the essence of our trip! She made it simple loved that she trusted me and my family with her car that I knew I wanted to make sure the car was always parked in safe areas! Loved the process and the mobile hospitality! Thanks Saloni and thank you to your husband!

This is my third time using Turo, but first time traveling with my children. Sam was incredible. He showed up to the airport, walked us through the car, and had water, hand wipes, trash bags, and a super clean car all ready for our trip. On the way out, he even met us at the airport so we could simply hand the car off without having to go out of our way. Seriously, I will rent from Sam every time I come to the bay because of this experience. The car was in great shape, handled well, and got excellent gas mileage. Compared to my last experience, this was like winning the lottery. Thank you Sam for taking such great care of me and my family. You're the best!!
