Oswaldo was extremely helpful, professional and his BMW 4 series was great! The car was exactly as advertised, and in San Diego where there are too many BMW's to count, this one stands out compared to most of the others. I will definitely rent this car or another one of Oswaldo's cars anytime that I visit San Diego. Thank you Oswaldo!

Renting from LUSO was an incredible experience! They offer amazing vehicles at an incredible price, and it allowed me to enjoy my dream car (BMW M4) out in beautiful San Diego. They were extremely detailed, flexible, and communication was great. The highlight of the experience was how easy LUSO made it. The car was easily accessible in their parking lot with an attendant that offered great service and answered any questions I had. Anytime I can, I’ll be renting from LUSO!

Giorgio's BMW is great to drive. Very well presented, clean and loaded with cool options. Super easy to drive and fun on the roads. Giorgio was very flexible with drop-off and pick up. I'd happily rent this car again and highly recommend it for a great cruise around San Diego!

I can’t recommend renting from Dan enough. She was there on time with the car drop off and there’s easy communication throughout our stay in San Diego when I had a few questions about the car. She was very flexible and changing the pick up location as well. And the BMW is an awesome ride.

Daniel
BMW 4 Series Gran Coupe 2018
The BMW 4 series was amazing! Had a great time driving around San Diego. It is the Gran Coupe version, so there is a surprising amount of trunk space for golf clubs and etc. Also, the sport mode and control on winding roads are unmatched. 10/10! Definitely going to be renting this thing again!

BMW 3 Series 2018
I had an after-hour pickup - LUSO, made the pick up easy and I got to meet Matt who was there at the pickup location who made sure everything was perfect before my trip with the Beamer. The car, BMW 3 Series, is a machine designed beautifully inside/out and very fun to drive! Besides the car, I loved the service provided by LUSO. You never rented a car until you have rent one from LUSO! Thank you guys again for everything! P.S. San Diego was beautiful!

This was my first trip on Turo, and let me tell you, Brian made my first experience an amazing one! The communication was superb and the convenience was perfect, pick up and drop off at the airport was that much better. My trip to San Diego was the best with Brian’s BMW 335i. I highly suggest taking advantage of this car. Car was clean, fast and great on gas.

Justin's beautiful BMW 4 series convertible was the perfect vehicle for our CA getaway! Immaculately clean and a pleasure to drive, especially with the top down, Justin's car added sporty elegance to our daily trips in and around San Diego. From start to finish, Justin's customer service was outstanding. He was quick to respond to all forms of communication, and eager to lend helpful recommendations for our visit. If you're looking to maximize your CA experience, driving Justin's car will do the trick!

Ignacio was professional, polite and very easy to work with. He met me at the the airport and took me to a convenient location to inspect his BMW 4 series and hand over the keys. I had the car for 4 days. The vehicle was clean, well maintained and a very nice car to drive. On return, we met at the same location to inspect post rental. He then drove me to the airport. I’ll be back in San Diego next month and plan to rent his car again!

Thank you Andrew!! Made our trip 10/10!! Cruising around San Diego and Cali in style. Andrew was super communicative over text, very very flexible with our needs, car had a full tank and was spotless, easy pick up and drop off instructions, and mechanically the car drive perfect. Tons of compliments from company. Perfect condition BMW convertible. You'll make an offer to buy it afterwards just like I did. Absolutely in love with the car. Will rent again from Andrew when I'm back. Only negative is it's German so expect to spend $$$ on premium gas, but that's what you get with luxury ;)

I can not say enough good things about Dawn and being able to use her BMW. She meet us at the airport to drop off on time and communicated perfectly with us. Explained everything about the car before we left. Checked in after we left to make sure we were good. Car drives amazing and the Diesel gave us 42 miles per gallon average. Very comfortable also with XM radio. We would recommend to anyone and plan to use again on our next trip to San Diego! Thanks again Dawn!

Jason
BMW 3 Series 2011
Dana was a great host. This is a well kept 3 series BMW and it was great fun to use in and around San Diego. He was very flexible with my return time as I had an earlier flight than anticiptated so I had to return the car a little earlier than originally anticipated. I recommend not pulling too far forward in any parking space as this car is very low and you do not want to scrape the front valence panel. The same goes for the wheels when parking next to a curb. You do not want to "curb the wheels" by rubbing up close to the curb as German parts can be expensive to repair or replace. I parked a long ways away from other cars just to be sure no door dings or inadvertent damage was done making me responsible for them. It was a great weekend and this convertible was a large part of what made it so.

B Nicole
BMW i3 2017
This was a great car, and we really enjoyed it. The main hitch was that the parking situation was a little stressful as first-timers to the San DIego airport. If you are renting this car, turn left out of the airport doors and head down the sidewalk, keeping the street on your right and making your way toward the Sheraton. The walk is about 10 minutes, and there are sidewalks and crosswalks the whole way, but it can be intimidating with a lot of luggage or if you have difficulty walking a few blocks. Besides that, you'll definitely want to spend a few minutes on youtube familiarizing yourself with the BMW i3; the infotainment is less than ideal and the transmission is a little unusual. Charging: We found that some places provided free charging (legoland, for example), but evgo and chargepoint chargers do require installing an app to your phone. 3 different chargers we pulled up to were all compatible with the i3.

BMW i3 2017
What an amazing experience! Absolutely loved the i3 and was really, really sad when I had to return it. So many convenient charging stations in the area so running low on charge was never an issue. Such a fun zippy little car that I am now heavily looking at purchasing one when I get back home. Ratchai made it a complete breeze for drop off and pickup. I even enjoyed it so much that I didn’t want to let it go and was able to extend my reservation for another day. Absolutely recommend Ratchai and his i3. Will definitely be renting it again when I come back to San Diego!

Loved having a car with a retractable top in San Diego. Easyway folks were great to deal with. Pickup at airport and drop off at a location near the airport and then they drove us to our terminal. All very easy and straight-forward. I would rent from them again.

Brian is great. Super friendly and accommodating. He knows the area well and was quite helpful suggesting places to go and things to see during my stay in San Diego. The car is excellent. Lots of fun to drive if that's your thing. It's quick and handles well, plus the engine noises and exhaust note are pleasurable. It's also comfortable, smooth, and quiet if you're looking for that. Not much else to say. I wouldn't hesitate to rent this car from Brian again if given the opportunity.

Shaun is the man! He is a very sincere and phenomenal businessman! He is willing to go above and beyond to ensure that you have a wonderful time doing business with him! And I did! Whether you are renting or buying from his lot, you cannot go wrong! His lot at Bozzuto Motors has a huge selection of sports cars that will fulfill anyone’s desire in being able to drive one. His lot is full of sports cars, suvs, and sedans and I was lucky enough to drive a 328i that was perfect in handling the road in front of me! It was an awesome time! I hope to get another vehicle from this guy in the future! This was hands down the best choice I made for a weekend vehicle when I came across his account on Turo! I wouldn’t be anything less than happy to do business with him again!
Michael C. - August 25, 2019

Great first experience with Turo. Logistics were a breeze. It really put my mind at ease. I don’t think I’ll be renting cars from traditional companies going forward. Josh was great, the car was in great shape and having a hard top convertible in San Diego really upped the fun of my trip overall.

A great company to rent from. The M4 was a ton of fun and seemed well maintained. Communication was good and the vehicle was easy enough to find. It seems that they change up cars fairly frequently. I look forward to renting from them the next time I am in San Diego.

Rasmus
BMW i3 2016
Renting the car with LUSO was very straightforward and easy and we can fully recommend it. We rented an electric car (bmw i3), which was a first for us. All-electric distance was limited. We were not well prepared to first register via an app to be able to charge on the road. That took us some extra time. Also the charging itself did indeed take some extra time which we did not have in the end. It makes sense to plan that in advance. Other than that driving the electric bmw i3 was a lot of fun.

Thank you for the prompt communication Tatiana & ANDREY! It was a delightful treat to myself/ourselves. ANDREY presented the car in top condition & walked me through the car features, especially how to easily put the top down and put it back. The car was immaculate. This beautiful luxurious car presented like a “brand new” car honestly — at only 41,000 miles. Such a pleasant smooth ride. This car is a head turner, so fun to drive around San Diego, for the wedding that we attended. Wish we would have had more time to tour around in the car… Next time! Would highly recommend Tatiana & her brother. I would definitely rent again. I plan to be back next month. Thank you!

Local San Diego favorites

A taste of the islands on the mainland, San Diego is equal parts mellow getaway and bustling metropolis. Book a car and cruise the coast for some epic SoCal vistas and adventures.

  • The San Diego Zoo Safari Park

  • For those of us who can’t swing a trip to the Serengeti, the Safari Park is an exceptional local alternative. A short drive up to Escondido for the day will transport you a million miles away.

  • North Park

  • An artsy neighborhood just north of the zoo, North Park is overflowing with boutiques, cafes, bars, galleries, and the North Park Farmers Market.

  • Ocean Beach

  • No trip to SD is complete without a beach trip. Drive your Turo car down to OB, rent a board, ride some waves, and finish off the day with "the world’s best burgers" at Hodad’s.
