This was my first Turo experience and it was amazing. Seydou communicated well and was flexible with delivery and drop off. He walked me through my first Turo rental. The BMW seemed to be the perfect car for San Francisco. Highly recommended.

Meng’s BMW 6 series was awesome. I received many compliments for the car and picking up and dropping off the car was painless and a breeze. I will definitely rent it again on my next trip to San Francisco. Also, he is very generous with the mileage allowed, although I only drove about 1/4 of what was allowed. Thanks again Meng!

Corey's BMW is the perfect California Convertible. It's cool, sleek and a true head-turner. Booking with Corey was easy, fast and extremely reliable. I highly recommend this 4 Series to anyone looking a great convertible in the San Francisco area.

Ramsey’s BMW 4 series was perfect for our trip in San Francisco! Not only was the car clean and smooth, but the communication and pick up with great. Our plane landed earlier than expected and we contacted Ramsey about it and he was quick to respond. This was my first time using Turo and I’m glad I choose Ramsey I will definitely rent from him again when I’m in town!

Ramsey is a wonderful host! His level of professionalism and service is incredible. I rented his BMW 428i Convertible for my California trip and it was a breeze. The car was clean and safe to drive. I never got to meet Ramsey but his communication is great. The Turo Valet service in San Francisco is also a dream. Overall this experience was great and I would work with Turo and Ramsey again! Cheers!!!

Zoeb's BMW was as advertised. A solid, well-handling BMW. It was clean and everything worked. He forewarned me that a brake sensor needed replacing, but that the brakes were new and worked well. They did, especially in Lake Tahoe. Before we arrived, he had the sensor replaced. When in the San Francisco area again, i wouldn't hesitate to rent another car from Zoeb. He was responsive to all my questions and concerns.

BMW i8 2015
We had an amazing time in Joshua’s bmw i8. The car was gorgeous and was perfect for our day trip to Napa Valley. It was extremely easy to pick up the car and was located in San Francisco which made it extremely convenient for us to get public tranportation there. It is easy to drive and defiantly a joy to cruise the country roads of California.
Pilip R. - July 19, 2018
BMW 3 Series 2017
Tony is an excellent Turo owner. He brought the car to our door at the airport terminal, picked it up at the hotel when we completed our time with his vehicle, and communicated promptly and cordially always. Tony made everything super easy and was very flexible with requests. The BMW wagon we drive was super clean, looked great, and mechanically ran superbly. No doubt if we are looking for a vehicle in San Francisco we will look to Tony first. Excellent experience overall. Thanks Tony.

As a first time Turo user I was a bit anxious about the service but working with Rich was a absolute breeze and the car was everything I was expecting. The San Francisco Turo Valet lot was a seamless process that is far better than the traditional rental car lots. Thank you Rich for helping to make our trip extra special!

Wonderful experience! Noe is an amazing host, made everything very simple. The car made our trip so much better. Nothing like driving down San Francisco roads with the top down. Views are much nicer with no roof obstructing your view!

while visiting San Francisco for 6 days we decided to rent a car to explore Sausalito and Sonoma Valley and the Muir Woods forest. Great experience from the convenience of check in and check out. User friendly experience. Great host. Cool car.
Gregory M. - August 20, 2018

Great car! So much fun to drive and rides like it is brand new. We took the car from San Francisco down to Big Sur and then up to the Napa valley and loved every minute. Jana was very prompt in her communication and the pickup/return was super easy. Thanks for making my first Turo experience a great one!

Clark is truly a one-of-a-kind gentleman, and serves as an inspiration as to a great host. We were on our honeymoon, and communicating with Clark felt like being in touch with family. In addition to making us feel welcomed from the first minute, Clark builds an innate sense of trust and honesty. Clark is definitely a mile above the rest in terms of all the key points - being open, reliable, approachable, and detailed as needed. Even with changes in our flight plans (flight delay), Clark was flexible and made sure we were able to both visit San Francisco with smiles on our faces and leave on the airport securely - those moments at the airport will be in our memories. Clark's BMW 335i (yes it is a 35i) is also truly beautiful. From the moment we saw the car, we were enamored, and had plenty of passerbys who expressed the same enthusiasm as us along our honeymoon. With power under the hood, the responsiveness was both instant and strong - great when you're traveling on Highway 1, 101, 280. I personally also couldn't help but crack a smile every time my foot hit the pedal and the car shifted gears (it's an automatic). With both beauty, class, and great handling, I'm more at a loss of words that this car available. Seriously, hands down it was a fun ride, and Clark made the experience that more special!
WIlliam R. - July 29, 2018

The car was amazing and fun to drive. Pick up and drop off process was easy. The one way rental option with unlimited mileage made this a great option to rent from San Francisco to San Diego. Ramsey was an excellent host, easy to communicate with and always quick to respond. Will definitely rent again! Thanks Ramsey for the excellent experience!

Janet was quick to respond and the BMW was beautiful. Without a doubt would rent the car again.
Ben F. - October 7, 2019
BMW Z4 2011
Never met Mike, but he texts really fast. Easy $12 Uber ride from Embarcadero for pick up and drop off if you want to do it yourself. Great car. Room only for two and a backpack. If you are not familiar with car, ask in advance where the top down button is. Had to resort to the manual in the glove box. If you’re gonna tour SF and surrounds, stay off the HoHo and rent this car! Almost price comparable and ten times more enjoyable.
Steve F. - October 2, 2019
BMW 4 Series 2014
I enjoyed driving this beautiful BMW 4 series convertible. I really liked the hard top roof, adaptive headlights and heads up display. Car looks great in California and gives the right mood for vacation. The only things to be careful of: use some sun screen, or you can get easily sunburned, especially if you’re from northern climate; get your own phone holder and charger because they are not included; and be careful with the Turo Go feature - you can lock and unlock the car only if you can open the trip details in the Turo app, which requires internet reception. I would love to rent this convertible again when I’ll be in the Bay Area in the future. Thanks Kevin.
Vlad P. - September 21, 2019

...what else can I say - Hung and his vehicle made our first Turo experience an unforgettable one, in an incredibly positive way!!!...our 25th anniversary road trip was perfect with Hung’s 2009 BMW 328 Convertible - what a great car drive Hwy 1!!...Hung was a class act all-round and we will definitely rent from him again when back in California...thanks again Hung...cheers!!

Humberto A. - October 6, 2019

Took the car to Yosemite, with the V8 roaring and the burbles coming from the exhaust when it shifts. Simply amazing! Runs smooth, definitely don’t feel like a 6 year old car. Turo Valet made it extremely convenient, dropped off the car and our lyft arrived within 2 mins to get us to San Francisco International for our flight. What an experience with Turo!

The trip was amazing! My wife and I were on our honeymoon and took Jeff’s BMW through San Fran and into Napa. It was reliable and even made us feel special. The drop top was perfect for the occasion and we used it ever minute we could. Even when Napa was 100+ degrees. Will go through Jeff again if I’m in that area.

Local San Francisco favorites

Break free of the throngs at San Francisco’s Fisherman’s Wharf. Hop in your car and try these local favorites during your visit to San Francisco.

  • The Mission

  • The super trendy Mission District is home to some of the city’s best bars and restaurants, from trendy hotspots to low-key, cult-favorite taquerias like El Farolito.

  • The Upper Haight

  • Vibrant with colorful shops, restaurants, and bars, the Haight boasts unique businesses from its 60s heyday and today. It’s also close to Golden Gate Park, the perfect picnic spot.

  • Sonoma

  • While still mildly under the radar compared its sister over the hills (Napa), Sonoma is a perfect day trip from San Francisco, with dozens of outstanding wineries, restaurants, and hikes.
