Merina’s car is awesome! Well maintained, clean inside and out. It has navigation and seat warming which is good for mornings in Santa Barbara. It was my first time using Turo and Merinas husband Felix explained everything patiently. The friendliness and flexibility was the best part This can never be had at a regular rental company

This was my first time using Turo. It is so much easier and more convenient than traditional rental car companies. Troy had the car ready for us shortly after we landed and we were leaving the airport within our first 15 minutes off the plane. I will use again!

Nissan Versa Note 2015
They were great. Met me right away and were flexible about the return and the fact I was too rushed to get gas due to So Cal traffic and my flight. The car was small but great and had a lot of pep and was very clean.. they even had adapters for the USB for use. Great company and I am sorry I left it without a full tank.

Ren dropped his car off for us at the curbside delivery at SBA right on time. His Audi is in fantastic shape inside and out and was a blast to explore the city in. This was my first experience using Turo, and I would definitely recommend others to rent from Ren.

Everything went flawlessly with Layne and this Cobra. Car is a monster and tons of fun and gets lots of looks! Driving it is a pure joy and he met me at Santa Barbara airport on time and even got me back there at the end! Trip ran flawlessly and if I'm ever in the area again, he will be my first call. Thanks again Layne!

We had a great trip with the 328d -- the perfect car to explore the Central Coast. And the pickup and return couldn't have been easier from the Santa Barbara airport. Many thanks!

FIAT 500 2013
Flew in from the east coast to Santa Barbara and the car was waiting, ready to go. It was a fun car for driving around the Southern California roads. I made an adjustment to the drop off location and it was not a problem for Raul. Definitely will rent the Fiat with Raul the next time I'm in Santa Barbara.
