Turo truly was the icing on our amazing trip to San Francisco! Kent’s car was clean, convenient, and so much fun to drive!
Robin - October 21, 2018
Kent was very flexible and helpful. This car is by far one of the best roadster cars I have driven. Amazing exhaust sounds that resonates through out the streets of San Francisco and the hills of Sausalito!

This was my first time using Turo. As a very frequent traveler who rents a lot of cars I found the system to be efficient and convenient. Zoeb’s car was great. As a Porsche owner, it was nice to drive a Porsche while 3,000 miles from home. I will definitely use Turo again and contact Zoeb next time I travel to San Francisco.
Ronald - October 1, 2018
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.

We were in San Francisco for a hybrid vacation/work trip and his Tesla got us around very smoothly and easily charged up at the supercharger network. We ran into an issue on our trip (my fault) and Fabrizio couldn’t have been more accommodating and understanding. If you are in the market for a ANY rental in the San Francisco area ride with Fabrizio.

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.
