This was my first time using Turo, I was very nervous with a lot of doubt about the service. Let’s face it, the traditional car rental companies are a bunch of rip-off. 1. I wanted a good llable vehicle that I could afford. ( I had a tight budget for my trip I didn’t want to spend half of my money on vehicle rental) 2 I wanted to rent from someone that was a good communicator, someone that would not cancel on me at the last minute. My advices: Take lots of pictures of vehicle before driving vehicle of the lots. I took over 20 pictures of every bumps, scratch, usual marking and dents. I made sure the vehicle lights, wipers and horn were in working. I also check the vehicle registration to make sure it’s up to date. And I made sure to report all my findings to the owner. Like I said I took a lot of pictures and text them to the vehicle owner. Overall it has been an absolute pleasure to have worked with Suenja. I highly recommend her for your next Trip.

Sueja is a good host. She is a very kind person and also very flexible. The car is an old car. I do not recommend driving it too fast on freeway. But it’s perfect for driving in the city. And it has a good price.

Daniel provided the perfect experience for using his car. The car worked great, provided all the things that we were looking for, and was great in the unseasonably bad weather that we had. The pick-up and drop-off process was well-coordinated and quick. Overall, it was a great experience, with Daniel being quite flexible in regards to some last minute scheduling changes of ours.

After 3 failed attempts to rent a car on Turo due to hosts changing their minds on availability, I was able to finally get connected with James who helped me fulfill a last minute convertible rental request. James was communicative and reliable. Pick up and drop off was seamless and I was able to easily park my own car overnight near his location. Would rent again!

Thanks to Mattia this rental went very smoothly. He was very accommodating, met me at time of rental to walk me though. And when I had questions, he responded right away. This convertible was comfortable, clean and great to drive. I would recommend it to anyone who wants to treat themselves, clients or folks from out a town to enjoy the Bay Area.

Quinten D. - January 9, 2018
Toyota Yaris 2008
This car was great. It got us up to Lake Tahoe, Yosemite, and back. Sueja was super nice and let us extend our trip when plans went awry. Pros: Great on gas. Perfect for two people, I don’t know if I’d put any more than that in it for a road trip. Small size allows for easy parking and navigation of tight roads. Cons: My only complaint was that the doors on Yaris’s are really wide and easy to swing into other parked cars if you aren’t careful. Loved this car, affectionately named it Yari Gagarin, would rent again.
Mark C. - May 17, 2018
Toyota Prius 2008
Este’s Prius drives like a dream! We took it on a trip from Berkeley to Mammoth and back. The car rides smooth and had plenty of horsepower for the hilly winding highway. There’s a few scratches on the exterior but it’d recommend for anyone looking for a practical car that wants to keep their cost of gas low.
Austin M. - May 29, 2018
Honda Insight 2013
A group of us headed over to Lake Tahoe for July 4th and the trip went really, really well. The car was very clean and everything was as described. It was very easy to drive especially considering I come from Ireland where we have manual cars and drive on the left. I would definitely rent from Mattia again if I could, he answered any queries we had and picking up and returning the car was very simple.
Ailsa M. - July 6, 2018

Car is reliable and cheap with gas. Highly recommend this car for your next trip. Slightly dusty inside but that doesn’t hinder the vehicle’s performance at all. Will definitely rent from Theodore again.

Stacy A. - April 8, 2019
Toyota Prius 2007
Noemi is a great host and the car worked perfectly. Very convenient pickup and dropoff, and Noemi also highly professional and considerate. Note that b/c it's a Prius, with a bladder for the gas tank, there can be a (apparently well known) funny thing where it is actually full of fuel (at the pump) despite the gauge not showing it, especially if you only used a few gallons of fuel. So, if you're reading this ahead of your rental, don't frett when the gauge doesn't reflect full after you "fill up".
