Tesla Model 3 2018
Super convenient. FasTrack in car helps get around fast. Valet pickup at SFO was really great.
Johannes L. - March 24, 2019
Honda Civic 2017
Car was as described and pickup at SFO was very convenient. Shawn was very responsive and accommodating with my schedule. Would rent again!
Lauren R. - October 27, 2019
FIAT 500 2012
Javier was understanding of my flight delays, and always responded to my messages. Terminal side pickup at SFO was very convenient. Vehicle was clean and as described, and I'd rent again.

3 reasons to choose Turo/Ken: 1) WAY less time to checkout than an airport rental / off site rental. 2) Hard to find exotic car! 3) Worked within our trip parameters (distance) to make it happen!
Omar N. - August 9, 2018
Porsche Boxster 2015
Super easy pickup at Turo’s SFO lot, very convenient. Porsche Boxster did not disappoint either. First Turo experience was very positive overall, I’d rent from Edwin any time.
Michael K. - November 13, 2018
BMW 2 Series 2017
A fantastic way to see SF area! Excellent vehicle, easy pick-up and return, and no boring typical airport rental car. This was fun and I'll only use them when back in the area!
George I. - September 9, 2019

First time using Turo. Will definitely use it again. Process was easier than using on site airport car rental.

Incredibly efficient! Thanks for the amazing rental!
Jon B. - January 3, 2020
Mazda MX-5 Miata 2017
Tony was an outstanding host. He was accommodating to flight delays and changes. The car was in outstanding condition and easy to pickup at the SFO hourly parking lot. Return was just as seamless. Would definitely repeat!
Vibhav P. - March 4, 2019
BMW 3 Series 2011
Couldn’t have been any easier. Very happy with the rental!
Jesse G. - January 7, 2020

Very satisfied with our hosts. Went above and beyond to accommodate us. Having airport pickup and drop off was extremely convenient. Thank you for a great trip!

Great rental. Quick communication. Super Flexible. Will definitely rent again from Kevin
Jeff C. - January 3, 2020
Mercedes-Benz SL-Class 2017
Fantastic car - perfect for a trip around California. Spotlessly clean with a full tank on pick up at the airport - better than a regular rental experience in every way. Looking forward to the next time.
Brian L. - January 6, 2020
BMW 3 Series 2016
Jahmilya was very easy to communicate and very accommodating with regard to her vehicle. Everything about the rental was smooth and flawless.
Andrew C. - January 6, 2020
BMW Z4 2009
Janet's Z4 was a wonderful car. It has great handling and is a fun car to drive. The car is a little older but is in great condition, looks wonderful, and drives firm (like a sports car should). The convertible is wonderful for driving around California. The pickup at SFO was smooth and easy using valet service. The drop off was even more smooth since it happened that Janet's husband was at the airport when we were leaving so we drove up, greeted him, grabbed our bags and walked into departures terminal. This was our first experience using Turo and we will definitely do it again based on such a wonderful experience with Turo and flawless experience with Janet and her Z4.
Mike S. - August 18, 2019
Honda Civic 2015
Affordable and decent rental, car has good mpg as well
Abindas P. - October 30, 2019
Porsche 911 2015
Andre was communicative and very easy to work with. The GTS is an incredible machine and worth every cent for the rental, I would rent it again in a heartbeat!
Christopher E. - January 5, 2020
MINI Cooper 2010
Saeid responded within what seemed like seconds to all my questions, was flexible when I needed it and made the handoff very easy and convenient. There car's great, too, but the good communication made this rental outstanding.
Jutta D. - January 10, 2020
Tesla Model 3 2018
This was our first Turo experience and it went very well indeed. Excellent communication before and during the trip. The vehicle was (as always for Tesla!) well equipped and very reliable. It has full autopilot so we could make California's highways (somewhat) relaxing. It's a "real" car, with signs of wear and various bits of owners' stuff tucked in corners. We felt this was helpful, because we would rather than rent a real car than deal with an obsessively clean owner. Shubhang was straightforward to deal with, set no unreasonable conditions, and handled the trip well. The valet pickup/delivery at SFO was also excellent.
Stephen P. - November 15, 2019
Jaguar F-TYPE 2014
This was my first rental with Turo, and the experience was fantastic. Kent had great communication, and the professionalism of the Turo Valet employees was better than most standard rental companies. Kent was flexible with pickup and drop off time, and free airport pickup was appreciated. 5 stars!
Josh B. - August 3, 2018
Mercedes-Benz C-Class 2017
Great car and great renter!! Easy pickup and drop off, great communication, easier than getting a rental at the airport!!!

I rented this Nissan for a month, and Yang's car ran wonderfully and has a great sound system! There was an issue with the battery that Yang immediately took care of and communicated quickly with any needs througgout the rental. definitely reccend renting from him and would do so again.

Tesla Model 3 2018
Wonderful renters. Appreciated the flexibility to modify the trip and the convenience of Airport pickup
Andreas C. - September 20, 2018
Tesla Model 3 2018
Dan's Tesla was a great drive on our bay area trip! Very close to the Bart station where we picked it up from the city and also a short distance away from SFO. He had the closest car available near the airport which is so hard to beat. He had the car really clean and prepared for us and can't really beat the service and the location. The car only has 10K miles and even has a brand new smell -- car looks pristine as well. Dan really made our trip great by helping us with our charging questions and he was very fair and up-front so that we can avoid any unnecessary fees. Even gave us a tip that it's cheaper to return the car with less charge as the Turo charging costs the same as Tesla supercharger costs. Overall I'd do it again in a heartbeat and will rely on Dan's fleet of Teslas for all my trips. I have done so twice already. Reliable and guaranteed.
Claire C. - January 3, 2020
Porsche 718 Boxster 2017
Car was as described. Thanks for the great rental Malcom!

Thank you so much - it was a great service for a very reasonable price (especially as compared to the standard airport car rental services) and Sachin is a great communicator! Will use Turo again and will try to rent Sachin's car!
Tuyana K. - November 28, 2018
MINI Cooper Countryman 2012
Super simple process even though the rental site is a few minutes from SFO - it's at least on the way in to the city! They easily reimburse ride fare from the airport. The pickup and dropoff process was very easy and they are really careful about pre and post inspections of the car. I talked to Ramesh a couple of times and he was great too! Even mailed me something I left in the car so I was very appreciative ;).
Heather W. - September 4, 2019

Linda Z. - July 9, 2019
Toyota Prius c 2014
Pick up wasn’t exactly at the SFO airport as advertised, we had to take an Uber to the location. Other than that unexpected part, the rental was fine.
Shelly Z. - June 21, 2019
BMW 3 Series 2011
Jeff’s car was a great ride. Turo was awesome - way better than any car rental agency. Easy pickup and return at SFO.
Mikhail B. - August 6, 2019

Shawn’s car was sparkling clean and his service was top notch! Communicating the pickup and drop off was very easy. Made our first turo rental a great success!
Trais T. - October 24, 2019

Very accommodating host and easy rental. Turo lot employees very nice and I still confidence in process. Don’t hesitate to try either.
Shannon R. - October 29, 2019
Nissan 370Z 2010
Pick up is not as convenient as airport pickup, but don't let that discourage you from renting. Would use again.
Andre J. - December 6, 2018
Honda Accord 2014
True airport pickup is an amazing perk, and Kent was very easy to work with. Will rent again.
Donlen R. - February 16, 2019
Porsche 718 Boxster 2017
Fantastic car and the process with Turo (my first) went very smoothly. Uber to/from SFO was easy to the Turo office, no longer than it would take to get to the airport rental car area. Ali's 718 Boxster was a great car (I've owned 2 Boxsters) and in flawless condition. This is a great car for a trip up to Napa - top raises and lowers in seconds so was easy to use in wine country. I appreciated the Tiptronic automatic as shifting a new car was one less thing to worry about in an unfamiliar area (and in particular on California highways). The car easily accommodated two medium-large checked backs in the trunks, and sync'd easily with my phone for music on the trip. Highly recommended!
Andy B. - July 17, 2019
Volkswagen GTI 2008
Great first-time experience with Turo, and Populous did not disappoint. Communication was easy and the GTI was fun to drive, if a little noisy. (It is a sport vehicle with 125k miles on it, after all.) The car was an 'airport' rental and the Turo Valet Lot option worked out just fine. (Uber to the off-site lot, pick up the car, return it to the lot, and get a free ride back to the airport.) I will definitely use Turo again, and wouldn't hesitate to use Populous again, should my travels bring back to the San Francisco area.
Jack M. - February 10, 2019

Awesome experience, Daniel was very helpful in making sure I had everything I needed. Convenient pickup and drop off at SFO, would 100% come back again!

The car was a pleasure to drive and Quan was a fantastic host. The Turo valet spotnear SFO was an added bonus, and made pick up and drop off easy. Great trip. Great car!
Ben S. - December 30, 2019
Maserati Quattroporte 2010
This car is nothing short of amazing! It really comes alive in sport mode. It also grabs attention everywhere it goes. The whole process from start to finish was so simple. I will definitely try rent again the next time I’m in SFO.
George W. - January 6, 2020

Easy transaction. Great car. No problems. Turo valet pickup is great for SFO.

JP D. - May 6, 2019
Tesla Model 3 2018
Initially, I was slightly frustrated with Grayson as both the exterior and interior of the Model 3 I rented were dirty and clearly not cleaned from the previous renter. I messaged Grayson and he immediately made it right- by comping me the entire trip. Apparently, there was a mix up and the car was supposed to have been cleaned by a third party since Grayson manages his business remotely. I thought this was fantastic customer service as things never go right 100% of the time. He also offered to reimburse me for a wash if I chose to do so. Additionally, if renting from SFO keep in mind there is a valet lot you have to Uber to even if it says free pickup. The Ubers are fully reimbursed by Turo though and its no more inconvenient than taking a shuttle to a rental car center as occurs in most large airports.
Rocky J. - October 20, 2019
Mercedes-benz E-Class 2019
This was my first Turo experience and Jeff set the bar so high that I don’t know how anyone could possibly compare to his absolute professionalism. He was amazing from the time I placed a request for one of his vehicles, through delivery, and he even made sure that everything went smoothly through the rental period. Give this Turo guy a chance because you will be glad you did. Bravo Zulu Jeff for a great rental experience!
Douglas P. - November 10, 2019
Tesla Model 3 2017
Really nice car and well maintained. I was able to charge the car for free. Uber from SFO was included so was more convenient that a conventional car rental.

Daniel and turo valet made this rental super convenient. Communication was fast and clear. The experience of having a performance spec dual motor 3 was next level. 5 out of 5 would rent again.

Alan was a great host he was open to me borrowing his car even though it was my first rental. Car drives smoothly and he was helpful. Great vehicle and great person.
Tyrone S. - November 16, 2019
Toyota Prius 2013
The Prius was great, and Dan was always incredibly helpful, friendly, and professional. It was especially great to get picked up and dropped off at SFO (Dan even tracked my flight to make sure he’d be on time) - by far my most convenient car rental experience (via Turo or a traditional rental place).
Brittany C. - September 9, 2018
Tesla Model S 2013
Perfect rental with Dan in his fantastic Tesla. The ideal car to rent when traveling throughout the Bay Area. Simple pick up and drop off (so much better than rental companies at SFO). Great communication. Will rent again next time I’m in SF.
Keith C. - February 9, 2019
Hyundai Accent 2016
Great car, easy pickup very close to SFO, easier than the shuttle to rental car center. Lance communicated will abd was very accommodating when I requested ahead of time to extend the rental by 2 hours. This was my first time renting from Turo, and thanks to Lance, it won't be the last.
Jeff S. - February 5, 2019
Tesla Model 3 2018
The rental of the Tesla Model 3 with Dan was amazing! Pick-up a short ride away from the airport was convenient. And Dan made it super smooth and relax. I'll definitely do this again next time I land in SFO.
Mathieu G. - October 18, 2019
Tesla Model 3 2019
What a great guy and a great car. Picked us up and dropped us off at the Turo lot. Car was spotless and was fun. Leaned a lot about EVs! Turo got us a Lyft within minutes . So much easier than dealing w rental car companies, airport busses, etc. I’ll be doing this again when in San Francisco with Mike 👍🏻
Patrick C. - October 26, 2019

Very cool rental. Much better than another Impala from Budget. Pick-up at a Turo lot was easy and unique.

Clean fun car. Turo valet made it super simple to pick up and drop off just like a rental facility.
Sayyed N. - September 3, 2019
Jaguar F-TYPE 2014
I'm a car guy. When I shopped for a car on Turo I was looking at 911's. So happy I chose Ken's Jaguar! Here is why... 1. Great performance from a supercharged v8 producing 550 brake horsepower., 2. I was worried about the lack of handling due to the convertible roof, but was actually impressed with how planted the car is and how confidently it carves corners. and 3. Hands down there is no better sounding car... the exhaust note is spectacular with the burbles and pops during deceleration and the rev-matching on downshifts. This car was fantastic! I thought Jaguar forgot how to make sports cars - they proved me wrong! Let me also add that I picked up the car at the Turo lot at SFO. I didn't have to worry about hopping on the SFO "Airtrain" to take the slow route to the rental car facility. Just hailed an uber and in about 7 minutes was at the Turo site where the Jag was waiting for me. Turo was super easy and convenient and quicker than the standard rental experience at SFO. Pack light: I was able to fit one duffle back, one small backpack, and one roller board into the trunk. This is a convertible so I'm sure you knew that already! Will rent again from Ken. Absolutely loved the experience!
Andrew D. - November 12, 2019
Ford Mustang 2016
Renting a car from Kevin was incredibly easy. Kevin’s communication and detailed messages made the pick up and drop off process very smooth, and easier than renting from any company at the airport. I would very much recommend renting from Kevin to anyone!
Matthew K. - December 31, 2019
BMW 3 Series 2009
This was my first time using Turo, and I have to say that Mohammed left a great first impression. He was on time to meet us at the airport, friendly, and helpful. The car was in great shape, clean, and a blast to drive. Dropping it off once the trip was over was seamless. Would definitely recommend him!
John D. - January 1, 2020
Toyota Prius 2013
The pickup is couple of miles from the airport, but the instructions are very clear. The car was there waiting. It was clean and tank was full. The car drives well and gives excellent mileage during long drives. No issues during the trip
Vinay V. - December 29, 2019
Tesla Model 3 2018
Pickup and return at the Turo lot near the airport was a breeze. Very simple, efficient system. The Tesla was (obviously?) amazing to drive. The keycard for the car seemed to be having issues and it sometimes took a few minutes to get the car to lock or unlock (even the Turo folks struggled with it when we picked up) -- not sure if that is a standard Tesla "bug" or if this particular card has been damaged.
Brian B. - January 2, 2020
Ford Mustang 2017
Rented one of Ruby’s vehicles and received really good service. Ruby made sure everything was taken care or and also provided me with more information if I had any additional questions. She also made it really easy for me to drop of her vehicle at a drop site she provided where they handled the turnin process for me. Ruby also made sure I had a ride to the airport after I dropped off the car.
Laron C. - December 30, 2019

Dan and his Tesla are first class. He's ideally located near the airport, and the car delivers as advertised.
