$25 off your first rental at Turo: https://turo.com/referral?code=847550rSD9hr
Walking distance from Ashby Bart station, Berkeley! This is the car you want to drive with the convenience of parking and moving around in the city. Save on gas and time and look cool while driving.
You can take Uber/Lyft or your own car to pick it up. The street parking is free if you need to park your car there but there is a street cleaning once per month.
Fast trak is tied to the license plate of the car. When the car pass through the Fastrak lanes, the camera will pick up the license plate and charge it to my account. Just let me know at the end of your trip if you use it so I can request a reimbursement for exact toll amount instead of Turo's billing department later which may incur additional charges.

It was very convenient to rent from Jai. The car, however, was quite dirty inside, and the key fob didn't work so I could not lock the car when I parked it.
Jai is a great person to rent from--responded to my calls promptly and and answered all my questions about pick up/drop off. Only real issues were around maintenance on the smart car. A tail light was out, the seat cover torn, and the key needs a new battery (though it also works manually too). Otherwise a fun ride! I took the car out to big basin and it handled very well on hills and sharp turns.
I am a regular renter of Jai's vehicles listed and I have never encountered a negative experience with him. In fact, he is super accommodating and very quick to respond to messages I send. He is a very flexible person and I enjoy renting and communicating with him. It's always a pleasant experience!
Went smoothly considering it was my first Turo rental. Jai unlocks the car for you remotely, which I didn't know beforehand. Also, it was a bit scary taking the smart car on the highway with high winds - I imagine another car wouldnt have felt like it was going to blow over. Otherwise it was good - good gas mileage, clean, easy to park etc.
Jai's smart car was very convenient. He was flexible with the time of pick up and drop off. I even got compliments on the car when I was out and about. It was clean and it also has an iphone charger in the glove box. I was pleased with my first experience using Turo.
Very fun driving a smart car and easy parking everywhere. I would rent one again. Jai was easy to work with. A couple issues with car like squeaky breaks sometimes and couldn't get top to close but if you know what you're doing it should be no problem. Car drove so great on freeways. When it was windy it did feel precarious. So be aware :) in joy!
Jai, is an awesome gentleman; the ride was nice smooth, and he was very responsive an accommodating. He even help me find a new car when one of his other cars was got booked on extended time. Will definitely rent from him again. Thanks Jai.
