Honda Accord 2014
Kent's Honda Accord was an excellent choice car to travel around San Francisco. He was prompt with the vehicle drop-off and pickup. I would highly recommend Kent to anyone visiting California in the future.

Honda Civic Hatch 2019
The Civic Type R lives up to the hype. It's a spectacular drive (almost beyond words), and is sure to put a smile on your face, especially if you like Hondas. I had a wonderful time on the back roads of San Francisco Bay, and loved every minute!

Honda Civic 2006
My first experience with Turo, and it was great. Pickup and return at the SFO valet lot were super easy and convenient, Man was very responsive, and the car was perfect for getting around. Very gas-efficient, and runs well. Would definitely rent from Man again, and recommend to anyone who needs a long term rental in the Bay Area. Thanks, Man!

I came to the Bay Area with my two young children for a visit to see family and friends. This was my first Turo experience and Mattia set the bar high! Great communication, reliable car, flexible and proactive coordination to ensure we had what we needed. Never had driven a hybrid before so it was fun to save on gas, to boot! Would definitely rent from Mattia again.

Honda Accord 2014
Kent is a very easy guy to work with. I had no problem picking up the car from the Turo lot in San Francisco and dropping it back off there. The Lyft ride to and from the Turo parking lot was quick. The car was very clean and was running great. My flight was delayed on the way to San Francisco and Kent was very helpful and patient with that. He was willing to meet me at the airport terminal at what ever time I landed since the Turo lot closes at 10 pm. He was very easy to call and text. His response rate was very quick. I would definitely do business with him again.

James was an incredible host! The car was well kept inside and outside. The car was clean and ran extremely well making for enjoyable commutes around the area. James promptly arrived at the airport to pick us up after our flight and his co-host Bryan met us to drop off the car and bring us back to the airport. All around great experience! The hosts even went above and beyond when my boyfriend left his camera in the car and offered to ship it to us and the package was mailed out in less than 24 hours! Would highly recommend for both the vehicle and the exceptional service!

Very affordable and easy rental! I will say parking was a struggle only because I am not used to it here in the city, but that’s more of an FYI to other renters than feedback on the trip. Overall awesome experience and would totally rent from this owner again!
Miranda J. - July 3, 2019
Honda Accord 2018
Excellent service from a communicable and friendly host. Josh was accommodating and provided flexible service as my flight into SFO kept on getting delayed. He acted quickly and even overly apologetic to all my change of plans! I will definitely use Josh's services again and without hesitation recommend his Accord out. Car matched description and satisfied all my needs for my trip.

Victor V. - July 8, 2019
Honda Civic 2015
Jessica's vehicle was a pleasure to drive. Pickup and dropoff was the easiest I've experienced by far on the Turo platform. Finding parking on busy San Francisco streets was a bit of an issue during dropoff, but that was hardly her fault. As far as the vehicle, it was comfortable, luxurious, a breeze to drive, and had great handling and acceleration. Finally, Jessica was very quick to respond to my messages, very understanding regarding my questions and requests, and was an overall great host. Would recommend her rentals to everyone.
Jonathan C. - October 24, 2018

Gina A. - May 2, 2019
Honda S2000 2004
Great car for a day trip on a sunny day. Don’t let the age of the car worry you, it’s in great shape and still handles like new! Car: It’s an 8000 RPM screamer. Still pulls hard right to red-line. It’s quick (not fast) but this car has always been about handling, and handle she does! Riding on newer Michelins, it give you the confidence to push harder into each corner. The clutch is starting to show its age and the fact that not everyone that says they can “drive stick” really know how to handle that third pedal. Clean car inside and out. No dents or major scratches, she still looks gorgeous. Owner: Great communication, clear instructions. What more can you ask for? Will happily rent this again :)
Christopher O. - May 8, 2019

Nicholas was a great host, I would definitely rent from him again ! The car ran great and was clean when I picked it up. Would highly recommend to anyone considering renting.

When I texted Alex that I couldn't figure out how to download and operate the Turo app,, Alex agreed to meet me at his car to unlock it for me so I could use it. I thought that was really great of him. I would rent his car again and it would be a lot easier, as I've learned how to download and operate the Turo app since then.
Chris E. - June 4, 2019
Honda Fit 2011
A 2011 Fit isn't the flashest car on the block, but this is a great inner city run around car. Nikola is very organized and easy to interact with. There was an issue at the start of the rental where the location of the car didn't come through for some reason. Nikola immediately tried to make it right. Thanks Nikola!

Maranda K. - April 16, 2019
Honda Fit 2008
We rented Journey On’s Honda Fit for a day long drive around the city. It was perfect for the situation and was easy to handle/maneuver in the city. For its age, the car is well-maintained and has all the basic essentials you would want, fully functioning (A/C, radio/AUX, phone chargers). It was a great budget choice. Journey On was also great at communicating, providing helpful tips and short response times throughout the day. I’d recommend booking with Journey On!

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.
