My girlfriend and I traveled from Maine to San Francisco and Yosemite for the week and used John’s car. John was a fantastic turo host and made our trip extremely easy. Pick up and drop off we’re both quick and easy with travel to and from the airport. The car handled extremely well and was great on gas mileage. On our next trip we will gladly go through John for our rental car again!

The S5 was an absolute blast to drive! The car is in a great condition as it was clearly well-maintained. Sergey was a great host that quickly responded to any of my requests. I would rent from him again! One slight issue was the pick-up time as the car was ready 2 hours after we requested it. I'm sure this was an exception and Sergey warned us about the delay in advance + he offered us an alternative car.

Audi A3 Sportback e-tron 2016
Wow! What a great Turo experience. Not only was this Audi A3 Sportback E-Tron a blast to drive in Northern California wine country, but Sharad couldn't have been the nicest person to deal with. Although it must have been an inconvenience for Sharad and his wife, the late night curbside delivery at SFO was very much appreciated. After 5 days of touring the Rutherford, Russian River and Anderson Valley wineries, our return flight was out of Oakland Airport. Once again, Sharad came through and was flexible enough to meet in mid-day for the car return. And the car...what a nice format! The Audi A3 Sportback was perfect for a couple and our bags as we toured 14 wineries and many sights ranging from towering Redwoods to a jaw-dropping coastline. This wonderful Turo experience made our 30th anniversary trip even more amazing! Thanks Sharad!

Best San Francisco driving roads

Skyline Boulevard

For a scenic trip between towering trees and sparkling sea views, take your San Francisco car rental alternative south along the ridge of the Santa Cruz Mountains, and stop at the famous Alice’s for a bite.

Panoramic Highway

Snaking north of the city up over Muir Woods and then down to Stinson Beach, this short, but deliciously sweet, drive winds through Marin with unforgettable views, and thrilling switchbacks.

Highway 1 to Big Sur

All of Highway 1 is breathtaking, serving up sleepy beach towns perfect for a quick bite, antique shopping, and hypnotizing ocean views, but the twisty stretch to Big Sur is a true driver’s delight.
