Tesla Model S 2015
My first Turo rental. I was a bit anxious, but Michael was very helpful and brought a lot of positive energy that made me much more comfortable. The acceleration on the Tesla is amazing. It was a great experience. The only thing I would do differently would be to get the higher standard insurance from Turo for peace of mind. Though this has nothing to do with Michael or the Tesla, which was amazing. thanks!

Oh man. This was the most fantastic car rental experience I have had. I opted for the airport pickup/dropoff and it was super worth it. The car was spectacular for all the Tesla reasons. Nicole was kind throughout and made it way easy. She gave a quick tutorial and was so good to share her car. Thanks again!

Adrian
BMW 5 Series 2014
Nice clean BMW, priced nicely compared to others in its class! Easy all around experience. Host made everything easy by picking me up from the airport after a late flight in and dropping me back off at the airport when my trip ended. Would absolutely rent again!!!

Aleksei
BMW i3 2018
Amazing! The car is clean - although this always depends on the person who had it before you. The one before me had neglected to vacuum and had left some crumbs and dirt on the floor mats. Other that those mats, the car was very clean, the only thing you can notice is a minor stain on the driver’s seat. Jules was out of country at the time, so not his fault (and some crumbs are not an issue at all - I’m really nitpicking here). I can totally see why he puts cleanliness as a top priority and would absolutely recommend his car for this factor alone. Wireless CarPlay is indispensable for navigation. My iPhone had some weird hiccup pairing issue with the car at first. Resolved by pairing phone as Bluetooth accessory (like one would do with a dumber phone), then I’ve got a prompt on the phone that I can use CarPlay. Car is quite compact, which is great for shorter parking spots. The backup camera and proximity sensors (they provide both display and spatial audio, so you can properly turn around to see behind you) make things easy. Battery is great for shorter-distance commutes. I never had to use gas backup, but was glad to know it’s there. However - I guess this is the case with any EV, possibly except for top-tier Teslas - with longer trips (I’d say 75+ miles) one has to be reasonably wary about the distance and charging time, and plan ahead. Jules has recommendations for this (ampUp app), but I found that Google Maps for general area search + vendor-specific app (e.g. EvGo app) for checking the charger status worked best for me. YMMV. Jules was always in touch here on Turo, excellent communications. I’ve asked him for recommendations where to recharge and wash and his advice was solid. Pick-up and return is a few miles away from the airport. I’ve read the reviews and it was not a surprise, communicated upfront. I’d say, a good and clean car was worth it. Overall, great experience. Thank you very much, Jules!

David was an ideal host. This was my first time using Turo and based on my experience with him I will definitely book again. He picked me up from the airport, great convo, and he was super flexible and helpful when my plans changed last minute. I absolutely loved driving his Mini through the rolling hills. The car was exactly what I had hoped for during my trip. Thanks again David!

Max was wonderful to rent from. He showed up right on time and communication was easy. The car was clean and full of gas and was also charged up (prius)! Max was also accommodating when I showed up to drop the car off an hour earlier than scheduled. This was a way better experience than last time dealing with a rental agency at SJC airport! I will definitely go this route again in the future. Thanks Max!

Thomas
Ford Mustang 2015
First point - book with Eliud! From as soon as you complete the booking the end of the trip Eliud is superb at communicating, providing hints and tips for using the Turo app and the area and is also extremely flexible. I needed to pick up in one location and leave the car in another and Eliud was very accommodating at all times. In addition, he is an extremely kind and welcoming person. Sally however, she makes the trip something extra special, from the sound as you accelerate to having the top down as you explore Napa Valley. Truly made my trip for a wedding an amazing experience!
Thomas L. - January 6, 2020

Paul
Mazda MX-5 Miata 2017
Great experience from start to finish. The car was waiting for me in a convenient airport parking lot. It was quickly opened remotely when I notified Tony that I was at the car. It was full of gas and operated flawlessly throughout my use. At the end of the trip, the process was reversed. As a Miata owner, I was pleased to see that Tony added some options like CarPlay that made my rental even more convenient. The next time I’m in the area I’ll make it a point to contact Tony for a car rental.

Lynette
Mazda MX-5 Miata 2008
A great experience with Zoeb. The car’s in good shape and fun to drive. It’s located about 10 minutes from the airport. Don’t let that discourage you. He arranges an Uber ride both ways lickety-split. I’ve spent considerably more time in long rental lines and courtesy vans than it took to get on the road with this rental. Someone bumped into the car while it was parked, and Zoeb responded to my text immediately and talked me through how he wanted me to proceed. Really nice guy, highly recommend.
