Harminder made my first time using Turo an awesome experience. The S550 was just as advertised; extremely clean and great looking. Pick up and drop off is way easier then traditional rental car companies. I would highly recommend Harminder to anyone needing a luxury vehicle in San Francisco.

Dan
Mercedes-Benz SL-Class 2015
First time using Turo and everything was great. The car was awesome, lots of fun great for cruising around Napa valley with the top down! Clean in great condition. Turo is by far a better experience than renting from one of the large rent a car companies. Easy, convenient, get a Lyft to the valet and that was reimbursed too! And a free ride back to the airport.

I originally had a plan to rent Davy’s car to napa valley, but I changed plan due to various reason. We had a very good communication about change on time to pick up and return the car. The car is gorgeous and the trip was a wonderful.

Ryan
Mercedes-Benz CLS-Class 2015
Wow this was by far my most premium experience renting a car anywhere. Daniel provided punctual curbside pickup and drop off of his CLS. The car looked and drove like new. The CLS 550 is an amazing value as a luxury car with very fair rates and with the twin turbo V8 it’s an absolute rocketship when you need it, it’s faster than many of the older AMG’s I have driven. Next time I visit the Bay Area I’ll definitely be looking to rent from Daniel he was extremely personable and easygoing

Mercedes-Benz CLA-Class 2017
Michael and his brother were great to deal with. We arrived on Xmas day into San Francisco and caught an uber to the car. They unlocked the vehicle remotely and we were on our way in 15min. We opted to return the car with the clean and tank fill options offered. This meant we didnt have to worry about our tight connection after travelling back from Napa. A nice tidy car that's well suited for a couple or family with small children. Thanks Michael!

Mercedes-Benz SLK-Class 2009
Our first trip with Turo was from San Francisco along the coast to Big Sur! It was absolutely gorgeous and what made it even more special was Michael's Mercedes! He made it easy and convenient. We went to an Oakland A's game and wanted to drop it off before the reserved drop off time. He not only let us drop it off early but he let us leave it at the Bart station at the coliseum, saving us parking cost at the game and our hotel! Definitely would recommend and rent again!

This was my wife and I's first Turo experience and it was pretty much awesome. Bedri was very responsive with a couple of first-timer questions that I had upon booking the car. Pickup and Return at the Turo lot was quick and easy, which was a 5 min Uber ride from the SFO airport, which Turo paid for (with receipt). Bedri's Mercedes-Benz E-Class was an awesome ride and we got compliments everywhere we went. I would definitely recommend renting this Benz from Bedri!

Pranay
Mercedes-Benz E-Class 2016
This car is mega. If you're looking to rent this wagon - you more than likely already know what this thing is capable of, but trust me when I say its exactly what you think, and oh, so much more. My parting words with Tony on this rental, "You want to sell it?" The car aside - Tony was fantastic to work with. His response time is almost immediate, pickup and drop off were a breeze and the car was clean and in pristine condition. I absolutely recommend renting any one of Tony's many vehicles (especially this one) and will definitely consider Tony first for any future Bay Area rentals. Did I mention the car is absolutely superb?
Pranay M. - April 22, 2019
Ashanti

Matt
Mercedes-Benz E-Class 2016
I can’t recommend renting this E63 AMG from Tony enough. The entire experience from start to finish was effortless, not to mention an absolute blast! Despite having more power at its disposal than a fighter jet hopped up on amphetamines, the car is quite relaxed and easy to drive, unless you choose to crank up the drive setting. The boot is also big enough to haul your entire apartment and then some, so forget about packing light on your trip. Treat yourself and rent this car if you’re even mildly considering it. It will be the best decision you’ve made all year.
Matt V. - April 29, 2019
Eldrianna
Mercedes-Benz C-Class 2008

What can I say? Another trip with zero issues in an awesome car owned by a great guy! If you are on Turo because you are an automotive enthusiast, then you need to rent Henry's C 63S if you haven't yet! Thanks for providing your car Henry!

Great car. Lovely and sleek, amazing to ride through the lovely scenery with the top down. I never did figure out how to get my music through the car speakers--be sure to ask Michael about your particular situation if that is important to you. My friend and I miraculously packed the proper sized bags for the trunk space (I hadn't thought of that). Would take it again!

Gareth
Mercedes-Benz E-Class 2016
This car is the ULTIMATE sleeper! A beauty to drive and a pleasure to operate. Take it out for a casual Sunday drive and it is the pinnacle of decorum. Hit up the freeway for a longer drive and it's got plenty of comfort and power. Wait for that pushy idiot in his nosiy Infiniti Q60 to start getting aggressive on the road, press the AMG button and then put your foot down.... At this moment a small hole is torn in the fabric of the universe directly in front of your car as you are propelled forwards at speeds that can only be described at brutal. You know that moment in star trek when they engage warp speed? This is it, in car form! Time and space distorts around you for a flash of a second and next thing you know the car is pushing 120+ with plenty of power still to go. Watch in glee as that moron in his toy racer eats your dust, little did he know this wagon packs a Mike Tyson punch under the hood. Be careful and have fun ;)

I was in a desperate need to rent a car right away, and I found Austria's car. She responded immediately, and when I got to her apartment building, she came out right away. Austria was very nice, explaining what I needed to know about the car and return. The car was very clean and super nice. I really enjoyed the drive. I wished I could have it for longer. Everything was smooth; nothing was problematic or inconvenient. When I returned, I just drove to the parking lot, and checked out. It was a great opportunity to drive a nice car. Many thanks to Austria.

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.
