Alec B. - September 3, 2018
Hyundai Elantra 2018
Such a great rental at a great price! I walked from/to airport for pick up and drop off, which I would recommend is easiest. The car was perfect for what I needed. I had trouble cleaning the floor mats for drop off as I couldn’t figure out how to remove them to vacuum, but that’s my issue, not the car! Overall a great experience and I hope to rent from Mina again the next time I’m in San Diego.
Kate G. - October 13, 2018

We had a great experience and paid less than we would have with a rental company at the airport. We will be renting through Turo with Ratchai next time as well!

Scottie E. - September 17, 2018
Volkswagen Jetta 2017
Nice car for the money and great communication. This is through a rental agency and does not meet you at arrivals. Take Uber for a quick ride to the nearby lot.

Tesla Model 3 2018
I wish we could give Sean 10 stars! The model Tesla was immaculate, so very fun and cool to drive, and Sean was so kind with all our changes and trouble with airport traffic. I even called him when I couldn’t work a charger and he responded right away. Such a friendly chill guy! Never had such fun with a rental car!
Rachel C. - September 22, 2018

Renting a car from Mina is a great option for families! She made our trip to San Diego so smooth! Her car seat rental was an awesome bonus so we did not have to lug our toddler’s carseat through the airport with us. Pick- up and drop- off were very well explained and super easy! Will definitely rent from Mina when we come back!
Sheridan T. - July 31, 2018
Tesla Model S 2016
This was my first use of Turo and I’ll definitely use it again based on my experience with Anton. The car was great, he communicated well before and during the rental, and he was flexible to help make it convenient for both of us. Would recommend he and his car to anyone looking to have a fun few days in a beautiful Tesla.

Joseph Franklin
Porsche Boxster 2008
Rental was grate! The boxster was so much fun, and plenty of space for our luggage and a quick stop at trader joe for a few days of grocery. Car is a blast and very easy to drive! Roy was excellent in communication, even when we had to update our drop off time.
Joseph Franklin G. - October 2, 2018
Saab 9-3 2006
The car was perfect for what we needed! Easy to drive, roomy and cannot go wrong driving a convertible in San Diego! Scott was super nice and the airport delivery was so awesome. Definitely recommend his vehicle.

Porsche Cayman 2007
Kimberlee understands luxury service. She called me before hand to see if there is anything extra she could do, she picked me up at the airport, walked through what I need to know, suggested great roads, and then picked up the car at my preferred location! Car is an attention getter. People complimented throughout the day. Drives as well as it looks. I loved the loud exhaust. Only manual Cayman in San Diego, I have no regrets. Tl:Dr I'm renting it again
Nithin M. - October 6, 2018
Nissan Leaf 2015
It was my first time using Turo. My personal car broke and I wanted to test out the Nissan leaf before I bought it. Steph made it really easy and dropped off the car at the airport on time, clean, ready to go. She included the charge card too. Car was really useful and roomy and fun to drive. It's awesome not having to pay for gas. Great commuter car. At the end she picked up the car from my place.
Gary L. - September 18, 2018

BMW 4 Series Gran Coupe 2018
Good selection of cars to choose from that aren't your typical "rental car" at great prices! Hopefully you'll add airport delivery of the rental vehicles in the future.
Guiuliani O. - April 7, 2018
MINI Clubman 2017
The clubman was a fun car to drive and the experience of using Turo was pleasant. I prefer Turo’s car rental process much more than your regular rental companies.
Dustin D. - April 15, 2018
Tesla Model 3 2018
Ok, you know you want to book this car. You have to experience the Tesla Model 3. That's a given. Now, if you're trying to decide WHICH Tesla to rent I highly recommend this one. Sean somehow has an enthusiasm for Tesla that rivals my own. When he picked us up from the airport terminal we spent a few minutes going over the car's features and wanted to make sure we were totally comfortable. He then reiterated that we need to have as much fun with the car as possible. Hands down this was the best car rental I've ever had. The only downside is that we had to give the car back at the end. Stop reading this review. The car and Sean are awesome. Click book! You won't regret it.
Kris F. - September 30, 2018

Leila M. - July 29, 2018
Scion tC 2012
Oscar made pick up and drop off at the airport easy. It's kind of like having a friend drop you off and pick you up and bring you a rental car to enjoy for less than any rental car agency. And you get a clean car that looks cool and has a wonderful stereo. I will rent this car again when in San Diego. :)
Shari M. - January 1, 2018
MINI Cooper Roadster 2012
Elizabeth is amazing and owns a really fun and well maintained car. This is one of the best rental experiences I have had. My wife and I LOVED that we had both a convertible AND a 6spd MANUAL TRANSMISSION!! That, friends is how to enjoy the San Diego Sun in style. Thanks again,Elizabeth!
Ryan P. - August 5, 2018
Porsche Cayman 2007
The best way to see San Diego is by Porsche! Received a ton of compliments while driving the car. Sean and Kimberlee were a pleasure to work with. Pickup and drop off was a breeze. Much better (and more fun) than dealing with a rental car counter. I'll definitely rent again next time I'm in town.
Conrad M. - August 16, 2018
Ford Focus 2013
Rented Abraham's car for a short weekend getaway to San Diego, it was clean and new! Abraham made pick up & return so easy, and was always quick to respond to message. He was so cool about us extending the rental by half an hour also at the end of our trip (we needed an extra half hour to get back into the area)
Bianca P. - August 27, 2018
Chevrolet Camaro 2017
Great first experience, Carlos was very accommodating and car was very fun to drive. Really enjoyed the car and having a convertible in sunny socal made it even more fun. Will definitely look up Carlos for another car rental when we head back to San Diego.
Ron M. - August 1, 2018
Lexus IS 300 2018
My first time using Turo! Was great! LUSO out of San Diego was very easy to use. Easy walk to lot. Very simply to get keys, and very simple dropping off with step by step instructions on how to complete drop off. Will definitely be using again. Saved hundreds of dollars vs a normal rental car company. Great work LUSO!

Nissan Altima 2009
Pleasure - attending a surprise party, as well as connecting with lots of friends in the area. Sabi was terrific and there were little things that were so thoughtful and helpful: a couple water bottles waiting for me and a phone cradle in the car so I could see all the map directions I was using on my phone. The car was very clean and absolutely no smoke odor. Also appreciated he gave me the car with a full tank of gas. Little things make the trip and rental process way better than the big companies and you meet cool people like Sabi.

Smooth transaction will definitely rent from Zhouran again it was a pleasant vacation with a great rental car. Thank you.

FIAT 500 2012
The car: I thoroughly enjoyed the Fiat 500c. My wife and I rented the car for most of a week on a mixed business/vacation trip. The car was clean, and in nice condition. The stick and convertible top made if fun to drive. If you rent the car, note that the brakes are VERY direct; they take a little getting used to. We chose this car over a Porsche Boxter that would have cost more than twice as much and I didn't regret the decision for a minute. The owner: I found Pono to be friendly, quick to respond, and helpful. He made our first Turo experience an enjoyable one. Pick up and drop off: We paid the fee to have the car available at the airport. The process was pretty straightforward. A couple of notes: the bus pick up at the terminal we arrived at is located at the courtesy pick up lane, beyond the rental car bus lane. The bus we took for our trip was the free bus going to the Pacific Heights Economy Lot. There are two economy lot buses, so look for "Pacific Heights," assuming Pono parks the car in the same lot.

Nothing but great things to say about renting from Hugo—car was perfect, Hugo was very responsive, airport pickup/dropoff worked very smoothly. Hugo even arranged two car seats for our toddler twins, so convenient that we didn’t have to drag them on the flight. An overall excellent experience!

Audi RS 5 2014
From start to finish, my experience with LUSO was exemplary!! From the instructions on where to go and pick up the car to them keeping in touch with me to the very end when I retired the car, everything went as smooth as possible. No doubt that LUSO will be my primary option for renting a vehicle when I am in the San Diego area.
Joel R. - September 24, 2018

Ali was awesome as was his car! We had some air troubles and we stayed in contact and was helpful throughout our troubles and the trip! Will definitely be contacting him next time I’m in San Diego!

Porsche 718 Boxster 2017
Great turo experience. Totally over the top communication! The car was clean and ready to go! I got so many “nice car” comments from bystanders it was ridiculous! Will be looking at reserving one of Eric’s cars on future San Diego trips. Thanks Eric!!

Maserati Ghibli 2017
10 out of 10!! Out of the abundantly amazing things we did on our visit, meeting Jeffrey and his Maserati (her name is tonya) was by far the most incredible experience. Jeff set the bar at an extraordinary height for my future rentals, and will be the first person I come to next visit to san diego. I would recommend Jeff's service and Maserati to anyone looking to experience san diego in the most tasteful manner. Thanks again!

Marques H. - June 20, 2018
Chevrolet HHR 2011
Mina was absolutely wonderful! She was very flexible and promptly returned all messages I sent her. There was a small mishap with one of my extras I reserved (because the previous guest didnt return it) and Mina's customer service truly saved my trip. She bought my infant a brand new pack n play and delivered it to my rental home! Words can not express how thankful my husband and I are for her kindness and hospitality. I would definitely recommend renting from Mina. She offers many fabulous extras including car seats! This made flying with my 2 small children way less stressful! Not having to haul all the baby gear through an airport was a huge bonus. She's a fabulous host. I will definitely rent from her in my future trips to San Diego and will recommend her to my family and friends!
Rachel W. - August 30, 2018

Ray made this rental very easy for me. Picked me up at the airport and dropped me off. The mustang was great to drive in the San Diego sun! Highly recommend Ray and his fleet of cars.

Jay made everything extremely easy. I can’t imagine going back to a car rental company after this experience. Plus, the beautiful, clean, wonderfully fun convertible was a huge part of making my SoCal vacation such a delight. Thanks again!
