Guidelines

A few notes: I try to keep cars clean for check out as long as I am given sufficient notice, they're expected to be returned in the same condition as they were checked out in. If the car is significantly more dirty than it was on check out, you will be charged a cleaning fee. Smoking is strictly prohibited in all vehicles and you will be fined through Turo if the policies are violated. Please note that this car has a video device on the dash cam. The camera captures external data such as video footage of the exterior of the vehicle, speed, and has sensors to detect collisions and/or accidents. Please do not tamper with this device in any way, shape or form or a claim may be filed through the Turo platform and/or you may face legal claims should an issue arise during your trip. Also, late returns are absolutely not accepted, If you pick up the vehicle late that's usually not a problem for me as long as you let me know you're running behind, however picking up late DOES NOT mean you can return the car late. The car is due back no later than the listed Turo time (This is to protect you as insurance is covered during the rental periods only) If you're running behind, please modify the trip through Turo to avoid late fees. https://support.turo.com/hc/en-us/articles/203990780-Fees-fines

Abhishek was a great host!! Pickup and drop off was convenient and the car was definitely a head turner. Recommend to anyone who is on vacation or just wants to rent something nice to cruise around in.

Abhi was really nice and helpful. Very easily reachable. Car is a great drive. I used it for my wedding entrance and exit and everyone loved it. Car does attract a lot of dirt because of the matte finish but it doesn’t show in pics. Abhi also cleaned the outside of car in front of me right before handing me the keys. Overall, great experience. Will definitely rent this car again.

Rented for birthday, quick one day rental. Car was nice, but it was given very dirty. Like unacceptably dirty, (I picked up at night, if it was during the day I would not have accepted the car in that condition) there were personal items (vape pen and masks) and broken glass in the car. This is unacceptable during regular rentals but this rental was during COVID and extra cleaning car was an additional requirement (which was obviously a not done) there was a bottle of hand sanitizer in the cup holder haha! The car was given with no gas in it. (Was told I would get a credit for anything more left at return, as the car takes premium, but that hasn’t happened) I had to get gas and wash the car. What is the point of paying for a rental? Upon return was promised a refund; a few days passed and no refund. Followed up, and was told he “missed the email to confirm the request” so again, was not a priority and still haven’t received the refund. My rental was over a week ago at this point. Waited and gave the opportunity to correct before leaving the review. Only my second rental with Turo and not a good experience, don’t waste your time or money with this one.

Hi Ashley, This is definitely not the experience we like for any of our guests to have and we clearly fell short of the high standards that we keep this car at. This was an off day for us as the car was returned from an LA trip where it wasn’t fully inspected so we’ll be sure to do that in the future. We still however of course make sure that the interior is sanitized and ready to go. We’re still working to get you the refund which can take longer than 7 days as noted in our messages.
