Tesla Model 3 2018
I was looking to rent a Tesla for a reasonable price in the San Francisco area and Dan's listing came up. I was thoroughly impressed with the condition of the car and the car's performance did not disappoint. Dan was very friendly and communicated very well when a question arose about the car. I would definitely rent this car again from Dan, the next time I come to San Francisco!

Dan's Tesla was the perfect car for my trip to tour the Tesla factory. He had excellent communication and made sure everything went smoothly. If I'm ever in San Francisco again I will definitely rent From Dan again.

Anthony’s car is amazing and convenient to pick up and drop off in the center of San Francisco. We took a weeklong trip to Sonoma County and had a great time with the Tesla!

Fabrizio was a great host and his car was very fun to drive. 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.

Andrew's Tesla Model 3 is among cleanest and best kept cars I have rented on Turo. The San Francisco (San Bruno) lot was very convenient and the delivery and return of the car was very fast. Andrew provided excellent communication! Highly recommended!

Dan has amazing service! Got the car ready for us on short notice and even took the time to show me the features of the car since it was our first time driving a Tesla. Very professional and clean! Can't wait to rent one of his Tesla's again when I come back to San Francisco. Would recommend him 100%

Fabrizio was delightful and very accommodating. The Tesla Model S was gorgeous and drove like a dream. The interior was clean, the exterior was spotless, and Superchargers were plentiful on the route from San Francisco to Monterey. An amazing car from a great guy - highly recommended and worth every penny!

My wife and I were in San Francisco for our honeymoon and Josh’s Tesla really made our trip. The cool factor of the car and how well it handles, and all the technology it has, the pickup location is great and Josh communicated constantly with us before during and even after the trip. Overall an amazing experience. Would totally do this again.

Tesla Model 3 2018
We enjoyed driving Taylor's Model 3 a lot. It's a really amazing car. Communication with Taylor was great and he quickly replied to any questions we had. Pickup up and returning to via the Turo Valet in San Francisco was no problem at all. We had a great holiday and are now looking forward to get our own Model 3 once Tesla starts delivering them in Europe. Highly recommend rental.
Peter S. - August 9, 2018
Tesla Model S 2018
Sebastian was accommodating and courteous. His responses to our questions prior to and during to our trip were always prompt and helpful. The Tesla we rented on this trip is an amazing car. It is in great condition and so much fun to drive up and down the hills of San Francisco. The pickup and return were easy. I wouldn’t think twice about renting a vehicle from Sebastian again.
Taryn L. - October 29, 2018
Tesla Model 3 2018
It was so cool to be able to drive from San Francisco down to Monterey, Big Sur and to the Hearst Castle and then all the way back in a nice new Tesla Model 3 without burning a drop of gasoline. Charging was quick and easy and never took longer than our shopping break or lunch break. The car is a comfortable performance type sedan with plenty of luggage space and the Turo pickup and drop off process was easy and timely.
Claude B. - October 22, 2018
Tesla Model S 2014
This was a first time rental with Turo, so I was a little hesitant, but it turned out fantastic. Tom was super to work with. Not only was he accommodating of a travel delay, he was also flexible with a later return which made our trip exactly what we had hoped for. He's a true evangelist for Tesla and his Model S was spotless and super fun to drive down the coast. Don't be fooled by his "lower" rental fee, as his service, friendliness and flexibility along with a superb car makes him a standout. I look forward to renting from him again next time we're in San Francisco! Thanks Tom!
Mike O. - April 13, 2018

We rented Walter's Tesla Model 3 for a daytrip to Napa Valley during a vacation to San Francisco. Walter coordinated a convenient drop off of the car to our hotel. He was very helpful in reviewing the car's unique features and UI. The car was amazing, it was a pleasure to drive, very responsive and comfortable. The Model 3 also comes equipped with Autopilot, which was useful during some stop and go traffic we encountered on our drive north. Overall it was a great experience and I would highly recommend renting from Walter.

Habiba A. - September 5, 2019
Tesla Model 3 2018
Eric was very accommodating, and the car was in immaculate condition when we picked it up from the Turo lot at SFO. Even though Eric wasn't there, the Turo employee explained some of the details of how to use the car and took inspection photos for us before we took the wheel to make the experience even smoother. It was super fun to drive a Tesla Model 3, and we're still telling friends and family about the experience. We'd absolutely recommend renting from Eric in the future!

Tesla Model 3 2018
BEST CAR TO RENT / REVIEW WORTH READING Renting a tesla during my vacation made my trip much better. If you havent driven a tesla before, YOU NEED TO TRY ONE. This car is at another level, its in a completely different category of its own and it IS the best car to rent for any trip. The convenience of not having to stop at a gas station is worthwhile. All of the features that this car offers is truly an amazing experience that everyone should participate. Daniel is an amazing, responsible, flexible and communicative host. He makes sure that you understand how the car works and all of its features before lending you the car. If you are thinking of renting a car for your trip, RENT A TESLA, and if you are thinking of renting a tesla around the Bay Area, RENT A TESLA FROM DANIEL!

TL;DR: Would rent a Tesla from Jasmit again. Even prior to getting the vehicle, the description and information that Jasmit provided was very helpful! The previous renter made some errors when returning the vehicle to Jasmit, but Jasmit made sure that I was treated well when I received the vehicle. The car was very clean, fun to drive, and well-kept. Would recommend trying Jasmit's Model 3!
Andrew R. - August 6, 2019

Had a fantastic trip in Jonathan’s Tesla. Car was exactly as pictured, maybe even better looking in person and drove like a dream. Would absolutely rent again

Hugo was so nice and friendly, he answered every question my friends and I had about his car. When asked, he gave us a lot of ideas for activities around the car pick up location. I personally loved his Tesla. Great handling, great condition. The autopilot is a godsend, saved me from more than one incident. 10/10 would rent from him again.
Kyle M. - September 12, 2019
Tesla Model 3 2018
Jasmit's Tesla Model 3 was a joy to drive. Jasmit was also super super nice, extremely helpful and responsive, giving us tips about finding Superchargers, using auto-pilot, and the car in general. Would definitely rent out his car again!
Bruno A. - September 19, 2019
Tesla Model 3 2017
Everything went very smooth with the rental. Han was very generous about the driven miles. He really want's to push to electric cars. The collecting and dropoff on the airport worked perfectly. All in all the car made my stay in San Francisco very easy. Thank you very much.

Just finished my first experience with Turo and Shubhang. It was a great experience and I will use again. This was definitely the way to try a Tesla and Shubhang and Chris were great with any information I needed. The Uber from the Airport to the Turo lot was also covered without an issue. Definitely want to use the Turo lot for inspections! The tolls and parking being covered was a great additional saving. It also felt great not to have to buy any gas! The superchargers are mapped very well and convenient to the area. Looking forward to future trips!

Daniel is a great host. He truly demonstrated as he put in his bio that he wants to share his experience, not just making money on Turo. Daniel spent a good amount of time guiding me thru most Tesla Model 3 features, and it's an amazing car! Daniel's communication is clear and responsive. I'd highly recommend Daniel to anyone who wants to drive a Model 3 in Bay Area.

As a first time Turo user, this experience couldn’t have been better. The location is super close to the airport, making pickup and dropoff a breeze. The car itself was beautiful and truly a blast to drive. Dan was super friendly and accommodating, which really made this rental something special. I would recommend Dan’s Model S to anyone looking to make the best of their time in the area.

We rented Hugo’s Model 3 for a trip to Napa from San Francisco’s Fisherman’s Wharf. The car was in excellent condition and the range of the battery lasted for the entire trip. Hugo was super helpful in giving us a quick overview of the car and how to operate it. Easy to communicate with him and have a smooth transaction. Definitely would recommend renting this EV.

Johnjeno was a easy to communicate with and have me a thorough rundown of the car before I departed with it. His Tesla Model S was freshly detailed and was spotless inside and out. The car is insanely fun to drive, and is worth checking out for autopilot alone. Everything about this experience was perfect, and I highly recommend choosing this vehicle.

We rented Dan’s Model 3 in order to experience the vehicle before it is released in Australia. By far the coolest car we have ever driven! We were able to travel to and from Yosemite National Park from San Francisco and the supercharger network was excellent. Dan helped point us in the direction of some chargers in Yosemite Valley as well. Dan went out of his way to organise delivery of the car himself following our late arrival into SFO. The return at the Turo lot was convenient and quick. 5/5 - would definitely rent again. Going back to our usual daily driver will be tough.

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.
