If you do want airport pick up and drop off, this is how it works.
once you are ready at the airport, let me know your door number, and terminal number at the Departures terminal, I can send a cab to pick you up at the airport and drop you back at my place which is 10 mins away and from my place you can pick up the car.
For the drop off, it is the same thing, but you would be dropping off the car at my place and then I shall get you a cab to take you to the airport.

Car was having mechanical issues. Trunk doesn't open. The radio works on and off. There isn't an aux plug. The vehicle also isn't an automatic. It's a semi-automatic. These things need to be said for the vehicle.
The car had really great gas mileage and was easy to maneuver. We took it for a road trip to Los Angeles and it proved to be pretty comfortable for the long drive. The car interior was a bit dirty when we picked it up, but other than that, good experience.
We were in town for a short visit and met with Krishna. He was very friendly and kind enough to show us how to work the smart car we were to use. He answered any questions we had and we were on our way. The car itself was actually pretty spacious on the inside and the perfect ride for zipping around the city and the Bay Area! Definitely a nice size, parking was never an issue and served us fine. Would definitely check the smart car again next time we're in town and would definitely recommend!
perfect car, great choice, sunroof open and close perfect, if need sunshine in your face or need close, perfect of both option, definetly if come to san francisco again will rent, owner of ca excellent person and easy to handle all stuff
Wonderful host and an even better car! Had such an excellent trip around the Bay Area. I would recommend this car to anyone whether it's a short or longer term rental. This car gets around, and everywhere we went, we got compliments. Top down and go. Promise you won't regret it!
Car is bit scary on the highway. Not because of maintenance but because it's actual size. Guess I should have known what I was getting with a Smart car. If planning on taking on the bay bridge and through the mountainous roads also be prepared
First of all, with the price of gas in California, the smart car is just.... Smart! It's also perfect when you need to park in the city or just zip around for quick errands.
Despite a couple minor details, like the fan turning off when you hit a pothole, and the windshield wipers not being the most perfect, this smart car performed amazing, even in the long haul we did from San Fran to LA, TWICE.
It even handled really well on a few non-paved back roads we ended up meandering along.
We rented it for a whole month and loved every single day that we drove it, and were just so happy at the pump. We also loved the Fastrack which let us get around all the tolls and express lanes in a jiffy, and the ability to fly in the HOV lane since it's only a double occupancy vehicle (and there were two of us) was such a life saver during rush hour.
It also comes equipped with a GPS which is nice.
The convertible option is just so much fun.
It's also really well price compared to the competition, especially for unlimited mileage.
What's more, Krishnakumar was really cool, he always answered our questions and concerns promptly, gave us a real helpful debrief on the car before we got going, and was even available for a super early drop off, which was truly appreciated.
If we ever need a car in the Bay Area again we're booking this one hands down without a second thought.
First time using Turo and Krishnar was very easy going. I needed an emergency vehicle and he was very quick to approve of the trip and responds well to texts/calls. He showed me everything I need to know for the car, and is really nice and patient. His smartcart came with a few extras like an AUX cable, GPS, usb port for any charger. The car itself was very driveable and simple once you got the feel for it. Overall, a VERY good first experience and I would definitely rent from him again if needed. Thanks!
This a superb trip to LA with a very nice car. Owner is really nice very helpful in late night car pickup and drops. Totally I love this car after driving over 1000 miles for weekend.. convertible..powerpickup..amazing is literally ..40miles per galon.. thanks to krishna for suggesting smart to me..
Krishna was easy to deal with and accommodated me every step of the way even dropping me off at the airport for my departure back to New York. Easy going guy who I wouldn't hesitate to rent from the next time I'm in Cali. Smart car convertible took me from San Fran to Hollywood without a hitch. Comes with aux and even included an iPhone charger for me. It was all smiles. Thanks again!
WOW! The car was a lot of fun and the communication and service from the owner fantastic. The owner dropped off the car and picked it up at the airport at his own expense and without hesitation. If you want to have fun, with the top down...this is the car!
Krishna is simply awesome. He's prompt in all communications and helpful in all aspects. I would sincerely recommend from him!
Plus he's got a selection of cars. First time I rented his pickup truck and the 2nd time Benz Smart. Amazing experience both times!

Real fun to drive - very sturdy even at 80/85 mph. The convertible attracted lots of attention. Only thing is this car does not have cruise control, which can make for a tiring road trip, if you're going far. Perfect for zippin' 'round in the city -- it's hard NOT to find a parking space. Gas mileage is BOMB!
Krishnakumar was super accommodating, he picked me up/ dropped me off at Hayward park Caltrain station right on time. Very easy going and super quick to respond via text.
Krishna's car was a joy to drive, especially with the top down. Got a lot of positive attention because people hardly see a smart convertible on the roads. Despite it's size, it's also pretty stable on the highway even at 80mph. A definite must rent for your weekend trips!
Krishna was very friendly and flexible, and provided a great ride! The convertible Smart Car is absolutely the funnest car I've driven to date. I would highly recommend renting with Krishna and his Smart Car.
