Reuben and his team were terrific! They were great at communicating before, during and after the rental. Beautiful car, arrived freshly detailed, and was so much fun to drive. Reuben and his team went the extra mile to ensure my experience was great from start to finish. This was my first time renting through Turo and after this experience I will definitely do it again.

Fun car, great in San Diego with the top down. Doesn’t feel like a 7 year old car. Navigation worked great in The area. 30mpg isn’t bad either!
Ryan - January 21, 2020
This wasy first time booking with Turo. Due to unforseen circumstances, my first trip cancelled on me. I was stranded at the airport and Turo customer service was able to help me book a last minute trip with Ratchai. After a few minor hiccups, I was able to aquire the car and my 4 hour trip was a success. I would certainly book with Ratchai again and recommend Turo to others.

Excellent value! We got a midsize as new as any conventional rental would have given us, at half the price, and with a generous mileage allowance. Jesus was also graciously flexible in arranging airport pickup/dropoff despite living off center, and not charging extra for it. Having had the car for over a week for an entire family and driven a lot with it, we needed to pay an extra $15 for cleaning. Chump change all things considered. If you have a shorter rental or cleanlier party, you might escape it ;) All in all, highly recommended.

We had a great experience renting Branko’s car and would definitely recommend it. It’s an older model but in great condition, just minor wear in places you’d expect. Great price for a rental with leather seats, sunroof, and navigation.

What a great car and service. I think we may have been spoiled with Edith as our first Turo rental, and her beautiful, pearl white Model 3 SR+. She picked us up and dropped us off at the airport, which made it a breeze...I highly recommend!
Kevin H. - January 1, 2020

Sabi is the best!! Most kind and thoughtful Turo rental ever! His communication was on point and he even left snacks and water in the car for us. He will pickup and drop off to airport for free which was a huge bonus! He was very understanding when complications happened and very nice. Thank You!

Angela
MINI Cooper 2008
Great, fun, car to rent while in San Diego. I wish it was warmer out so we could have put the top down! Very small but great if you don’t plan to use the back seat and only have 2 people on your trip. We couldn’t even get a smaller sized luggage into the trunk because the opening is so small but if you put the seats down, you can get them through the side doors and there is a lot of space in the back! Would definitely recommend this rental for the price. Thank you!

Jonny’s mini was a blast to zip around San Diego. He was extremely easy to meet up with, and it felt like I was just using a friends car. He met me curbside out of my exit doors at the airport, and that’s where I dropped it off. Such an easy deal.

Sonny was very quick to respond to my reservation request, even when it was very late at night (in a different time zone). His communication was detailed and easy to follow for a first time Turo user. The car was very clean and well maintained - it looked great, smelled great, and felt great 🙂. SAN Airport delivery/return: While Sonny does offer complimentary pick up of the vehicle at the airport, it is requested that the vehicle be returned at his location, otherwise additional payment may be requested for returning back at the airport.

Julie
Toyota C-HR 2019
It was an overall great way of transportation. Much more affordable than Ubering around or renting a car. We landed in San Diego and had our Turo car reserved within minutes. After the reservation is booked I received detailed instructions for picking up the car. We took a 4 min shuttle ride to the Hotel where the car is parked. Then followed directions to unlock the car. Basically once you’re to the car you take photos to show there’s no damage and the car automatically unlocks once those are submitted. The car comes with a full tank of gas and immaculately clean. I was running behind schedule getting to the airport and sent a message to the driver that I would be dropping car later than my reservation. He promptly thanked me for letting him know and no extra charges were given. I recommend this way of transportation if you want to cut the cost of renting a car, don’t want to rely and pay for Uber or Lyft, and have the freedom to travel as if you have your own car.

This was my first experience with Turo. I was very pleased with how smooth everything went from pick through to drop off. This particular car is fun, especially if you have some old school Muscle Car nostalgia (“it’s got a hemi”). I especially like the F1 style paddles on the steering wheel for changing gears. The car was clean and well maintained. Our host was punctual and pleasant. Would definitely rent this car again if I’m back in San D!
