Jeffrey's Prius V was clean inside and out and drove like a dream. The fuel economy was fantastic, as expected from Toyota's top of the line hybrid. Jeffrey is an awesome communicator, and I would definitely recommend him for anybody seeking a reliable and smooth ride in San Diego!

Yangbin’s Toyota Corolla was very clean, gas efficient, easy to drive, and overall amazing! He was also very nice and welcomed me and my boyfriend to San Diego. He definitely made our experience one of a kind. It only cost me 30$ to fill the gas tank after using it for almost an entire week! Will definitely be booking Yangbin’s car again in future trips.

Everything about my first Turo experience was positive. I loved the little surprise I found on the passenger's seat ... Thank you so much Lety for being such a welcoming host! To anyone booking Lety's Toyota, she was very responsive and accommodating of my needs. She always got back to me quickly, which made my trip easy and seamless. Regarding the car, it was surprisingly big. The perfect fit for my mountain bike (in the trunk the whole 10-day trip). The car was super comfortable to drive and easy on the pocket (I traveled over 1500 miles to Arizona and only had to fill the tank a few times). Absolutely, amazing! I will definitely rent from Lety again when I return to San Diego!

Renting a car from Edwin was easy and enjoyable. The car was smooth, clean, and ran much better than places like Avis for the price. Place to pickup and drop off car is easily accessible, which is really important if you are near downtown San Diego. Would definitely rent a car with Edwin again in the future.

Chrystal D. - March 23, 2019
Toyota Corolla 2014
Edwin met me in a convenient spot near my apartment. The car has great fuel efficiency; Palm Springs to San Diego only used a quarter tank. The only downside was not getting the Bluetooth to connect and the bottom of the touchscreen didn’t respond. Those are inconsequential. The drive was very pleasant.

Renting a car from Mina is a great option for families! She made our trip to San Diego so smooth!

Doing business with Mina was very simple and convenient. Responses came within a couple of minutes.

Not the sexiest car, but did its job and got me from LA to San Diego a couple of times with no trouble.

Overall, a great experience!
Kevin S. - September 3, 2018
Toyota Corolla 2017
Everything was great, but, I find it frustrating to require ME to do the service of cleaning YOUR car for you, to avoid the fine for returning a car with normal usage and dust in San Diego - which should not be considered "dirty".
Ross M. - September 25, 2018
Joseph Franklin
Toyota Prius 2015
Worked our great! Needed a car for 2 days and was perfect, only drove about 50 miles but was well worth it. Car was dropped off righr to us and the drop off was just as easy. Would do again if in San diego

SUPER cool and easy, this was my first time using Turo and this trip has made it a forever app for me, goodbye rental places hello Turo. Found the car in the parking lot after a pretty beautiful short walk, (.5 miles) messaged them to unlock it and you’re good to go, the car is extremely good with gas, I ran some errands all day and gas was barely touched. Will easily be back to use this car when in San Diego

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.
