Description

$25 credit for 1st timers! https://turo.com/c/davidl2327 Unlimited Mileage! Don't stress out over mileage penalties! Be green & enjoy up to 51 MPG cruising San Francisco, Napa Valley, Yosemite, Muir Woods, Lake Tahoe and Monterey Bay. My Prius was purchased September 2015, just before the model change in January 2016. Save gas! A SFO-Napa-SFO roundtrip can cost as little as $7-$8 at the pump. A one way trip from SFO to LAX can cost as little as $23-$24 at the pump. Do you want to go on a long road trip up scenic Pacific Coast Highway to Seattle or to Hollywood and drop off the car there? This is POSSIBLE. Just contact me. My Prius comes equipped with a Cell Phone Charging Station for up to 7 devices (3 Apple, 3 Android, 1 Android C). There is an Aux Cable so you can play your music, too. One of the Apple chargers can both charge & play music at the same time. There is a Scosche magnet mount on the center dash to mount your Mobile for using Waze & Google Maps (only works with Scosche-equipped Mobiles). For your safety, my Prius is equipped with a Road Emergency Kit, Fire Extinguisher & First Aid Kit. In case the Apocalypse happens while you are touring, there are also emergency rations of water, Starbursts & canned sardines. If you use these suppliers, please resupply or add a few bucks into the center console. The windows are limo tinted in the rear for privacy. ### Warning: San Francisco City has a big problem with glass breakage & the tinted windows are one deterrent to reduce chance of smash & grab. Avoid leaving valuables, passports, or luggage UNATTENDED in the car, even when sightseeing at popular tourist spots like the Palace of Fine Arts. Also to help to deter thieves, the license plates have local Toyota dealer branded frames to signal that you are a local and not a "foreign tourist expecting to be robbed renting a HERTZ car". There are also special decals on the car that has so far prevented at least 3 traffic tickets when police officers see that special decal. This is not to say that if you deserve a ticket, you won't get one. Drive responsibly. ### Note: This Prius has some scratches here and there, but are generally not visible from 20 feet away. Happy trails! Peace <3! Airport Delivery Available ... curbside outside the baggage claim @ Arrivals. Give me your Flight Details in advance so that I can set up notifications & alerts. I'll be waiting about 5-10 minutes away in the Cell Phone Waiting Lot. Once you get your bags, Text me to my Cell Phone (510-717-xxxx) your Door Number and I will bring the car right over to you. Enjoy VIP service! However, in some cases, I will not be available to personally deliver the car to you at the Airport. The car may be prepositioned at the airport parking lot and keys will be in the Lock Box. Or, Turo Valet Service may be activated.

Faqs

  • Can I pickup and drop off the car at different locations?
    Yes. I can arrange for you to pickup and drop off the car anywhere in the Bay Area. Just contact me and we will discuss your requirements. If you want to take an extended road trip from San Francisco to Los Angeles, I'm am open to One-Way trips and picking up the car at the end of your trip in LA ($350) or even Las Vegas ($450).
  • Is the car registered with FastTrak? Can I use the FastTrak lane? How about the Tolls?
    Yes. You are welcome to use the FastTrak lane with any of the cars. All the cars are registered and the amount of the Tolls will be requested from you through Turo, few weeks after your Rental. Alternatively, you can pay by CASH (leave in the glove box) for any Fastrack tolls or parking fees (SFO Parking has a fast lane for Fastrak payment).
  • Can someone else drive the car I booked on Turo?
    Yes, as long as they are "Approved" by Turo. Within the Turo App, you can add second driver in the DRIVERS section with no additional fee. Make sure that they are verified and approved to drive before your rental starts. Instructions here: https://support.turo.com/hc/en-us/articles/203990880?input_string=how+to+add+additional+driver
  • Can I return my rental car late?
    Yes. If you're within an hour late, it's no biggie! Anything after an hour, you must go to your Dashboard and request to extend your trip. Turo's late return fee is set at $50/hr up to $200.
  • Do I have to WASH the car before the returning it?
    Yes & No, depends. If the car was delivered clean, washed, windexed & vacuumed, please return the car in the same condition. Cleaning charge AFTER the trip is up to $50 per Turo Guidelines. Cleaning charge BEFORE the trip is only $25 prepaid in the EXTRAS section.
  • Can I pick up or return the car between 10 PM & 6 AM?
    YES! Although Turo Valet SFO is closed from 10 PM to 6 AM, I can check-in or check-out remotely. It requires advance coordination. There may be a fee that you will pay directly to me for this convenience feature: $40 per time @ SFO or Oakland Airport to preposition the car at Hourly Parking Lot (short walk from baggage claim). $0 (no charge) at my Oakland home or at an agreed pick up location outside the airport (you will need to take an Uber/Lyft to the pick up point).
