Valentin went above and beyond to make sure my rental was perfect. He personally took the car to get it freshly washed before I arrived. He made check in a breeze and was extremely helpful. Easy go to next time I'm in Los Angeles!

I have been using Turo since they launched and Valentin has been the most amazing owner. He dropped off the car at the airport. It's so great to get off the plane and right into your rental car. Such a seemless experience. Valentin is so polite and responsive to any questions. I give him an A+. I hope to rent from him every time I'm in Los Angeles.

Great car and great person to rent from. Uriel was able to coordinate a 1:00 AM drop off of the rental and 1 hour early pick up. I also forgot my hotspot device and he drove back to the airport to drop this off. Thank you for the hospitality!

Scion iA 2016
This was my first time using Turo and Tyler made it an incredible experience. He was so nice and professional and made my trip that much more stress free by providing unparalleled service. He was very attentive to my schedule and went above and beyond to provide quality service. He and his team and very thorough and I highly recommend renting from him in the future. The car itself was great. Apparently there was some light squeaking that Tyler noticed before handoff and was very upfront and honest about it, then offered me another vehicle that was absolutely perfect. The handoff of the second vehicle was more than accommodating to my schedule and further proved what quality service Tyler provides. Again, thank you for an incredibly easy and fun experience! I hope to get back to Cali soon and will absolutely rent from Tyler again!

Scion tC 2009
Michael did an excellent job. This was our first Turo experience and we were pretty tentative. He did a great job of communicating and answered all our questions. He picked us up outside of lax and honestly that was the worst piece of traffic we experienced in California. The car ran great, and was very fuel efficient. He was very courteous and left us chargers for iPhones. Dropping off was super easy. We met at his house and he drove us to the airport. Overall we saved a little bit and got to meet a really nice guy. Would definitelynreccomend!

Mulholland Drive

This breathtaking 14-mile drive through the Santa Monica Mountains allows you to relive Hollywood chase scenes with great views of celebrity properties and the scenic valley below.
