FIAT 500 2013
Flew in from the east coast to Santa Barbara and the car was waiting, ready to go. It was a fun car for driving around the Southern California roads. I made an adjustment to the drop off location and it was not a problem for Raul. Definitely will rent the Fiat with Raul the next time I'm in Santa Barbara.

If want to really see Santa Barbara/Montecito you’ve got to get Gary’s BMW convertible! It would’ve have been an entirely different trip with out it. Gary was extremely flexible; O changed the trip duration twice.

Merina’s car is awesome! Well maintained, clean inside and out. It has navigation and seat warming which is good for mornings in Santa Barbara. It was my first time using Turo and Merinas husband Felix explained everything patiently. The friendliness and flexibility was the best part This can never be had at a regular rental company

What a privilege to drive such an amazing car. So appreciative that Layne had made it available on Turo. The Cobra drives so strong and gets heads turning everywhere you go. Just the perfect ride for a few days of fun in the sun in Santa Barbara. Thanks Layne!

Everything went flawlessly with Layne and this Cobra. Car is a monster and tons of fun and gets lots of looks! Driving it is a pure joy and he met me at Santa Barbara airport on time and even got me back there at the end! Trip ran flawlessly and if I'm ever in the area again, he will be my first call. Thanks again Layne!

MINI Cooper Countryman 2015
This car was so much fun to drive! I’m also a MINI owner and it was a treat to drive a Countryman while in Santa Barbara. Picking up and dropping the car off was the easiest experience I have had with TURO. It was super convenient. The car was very clean which is important to me. There were also little things that were thoughtful which made it easy for us to get on our way. I would absolutely recommend renting this MINI and would rent from Justin again. Thanks!

They were simply amazing. The car was clean, gassed, and ready to go. Helped me with changing the trip, were very accommodating, and nice as could be. It was my first time with Turo and they were knowledgeable about the process and helped through it all. When I come back to SB, I'll be looking for them as my first pick. Thanks guys!
William C. - October 23, 2019
Ford Mustang 1969
5 Stars for accuracy of the listing and service. It’s probably everything you should expect of a ‘69 muscle car... LOUD (ears ringing loud, ouch), tough to steer and lot’s of concerning noises (is it going to break down?)... but you should already expect those kinds of things. I would have loved it if we had stayed local but driving just over 200 miles was far too much and probably really dumb on my part. The car was super fun for the first couple hours and really tedious after that. Rent it and stay in the area and it will be a blast.
Devin D. - November 5, 2019
Ford Cobra 1969
Layne was fantastic to deal with. Flexible when the weather turned and we wanted to bring the rental forward. Persistent when we were trying to arrange insurance before the rental. Punctual and very helpful when accommodating our request for having the car delivered. A pleasure to deal with. The car is superb, a really fabulous experience to drive. I highly recommend it!!

Duo of hosts were the best. Their black BMW 3 series looked and drove great. It was my 1st time with Turo and I’d be surprised if my next host can surpass the service I had through Raul and Isaac.

Merina was very flexible with the times, especially since I made a couple of mistakes with my travel plans. This was very helpful. I never waited for the car or Merina. The car was very clean inside and out. Changing plans was never a problem and the communication was crisp and direct. Would certainly recommend Merina. Thanks for your help in making it a great trip. Best, Tom

LIFE IS TOO SHORT to rent something boring when you can cruise in this hot hatch! Leah’s Mini Cooper S is immaculate and super-fun to drive. We arrived at some swank destinations in the city and looked the part, and we had an amazing time in the dessert with the speed and handling! Excellent shifter and great turbo surge at any rev range.
