Volkswagen Golf GTI 2018
Tony and Jesse were super awesome! They accommodated a last minute change to my drop off location. The car showed some wear (as expected with rental cars) but drove well. Thanks!!

Kevin was very accommodating as I needed to pick up the car rather late and last minute and was very prompt with his responses. The car itself is very nice and pretty much brand new. The car however was somewhat dirty inside and out but since I only needed it for a day it wasn’t that big of a deal. Also be forewarned that the car is located deep into an industrial complex, kind of in the cuts and just make sure you pay attention to the parking signs. If you take Bart, I got off at the South San Francisco stop and took Uber. If you get off at the SFO stop it costs more. Overall, this was a positive experience and I would rent from Kevin again.

This is my first time using Turo. Victor was not available to meet me for pick up/drop off but he made an arrangement with his dad. Victor communicated with me through out and answered all my questions. He is also flexible when I needed to extend the trip. However, later I found out that I dont need the car anymore and Victor was very accommodating and allowed me to return the car early. The car is clean, excellent to drive and has good MPG. I recommend Victor & his car to anyone if you are looking to rent a car from Turo. I would rent a car from him again. Thanks Vic!

My first Turo rental, goodbye car rental places for ever....I’m a Turo man now!! Excellent car, outstanding provider, communication, and everything went off without a hitch too!!

Audi A6 2013
It was a 5-star experience. Car was super clean, communication was smooth, and Felix and John were very easy to work with. If I rent a car again in SF, Felix will be first to call.

Volkswagen Jetta 2019
Great deal + car. It had a backup cam which was super helpful and the MPG for that car is amazing. Only had to fill up once driving all around San Fran for 3 days.

Awesome, clean, reliable car that gets fantastic gas mileage. Basil was great to communicate with. Would rent again!

It was my first time using Turo and having Shubhang as my host makes me want to use Turo again for another trip. He was very flexible and picking up and returning the car was super simple. He was also very responsive and usually replied to me within a few minutes, if not shorter. The car was amazing and was very easy to drive. I would highly recommend booking with Shubhang if you’re in the San Francisco area.

Toyota Prius Prime 2017
We were looking for a Prius to test drive and Felix's worked out perfectly for our weekend getaway. Meeting up was easy and the car was delivered as expected and an early drop off was easy too. The car itself was sporty, well taken care of, and I would recommend it to people who need an alternative to the standard car rental places near SFO.

This was my first time using Turo and Basil made it easy. He walked me through the process and was extremely flexible and communicative. The car... Wow! What a car! Thank you for helping to make my wedding anniversary feel special as well as convincing me that I DO need a Civic Type R in my life.

Felix and his colleague were very flexible for me in my pickup and drop off. They let me leave my personal car where I picked the car up and were flexible with the pickup time by 30 minutes. Cool guys!
Marcus P. - October 7, 2019
Toyota Prius 2016
WOW! Where do I start ? Let’s just start off by saying Felix was an amazing host. Felix was extremely easy to work and communicate with and accommodating. The pick up and return options were very easy and straight forward and the car ran very smoothly and provided me with all of the amenities that I was looking for. I most certainly will be booking with Felix again! Highly recommend!
Dasha M. - October 3, 2019

My first time with Turo AND with Tesla. Shubhang and David made everything super simple. Had really easy communication with David (I had a bunch of questions being new to Tesla vehicles) and he was super responsive and helpful. Would definitely rent again!
Spencer W. - October 10, 2019
Honda Civic Hatch 2019
Basil was extremely accommodating throughout the entire trip. He brought the car impeccably clean and ready to go. My girlfriend and I were in the bay area for the weekend, and decided to rent the Type-R for our trip. The car was everything that I expected it to be and more. The car is capable, amazing, and always eggs you on for more, even when you're doing a little spirited driving. Talking about the car wouldn't do it any justice. Overall, a great car that is paired with an even greater host.
James B. - July 30, 2019

The Prius Prime is a great car to drive. Adaptive cruise control is a awesome. Nothing remotely negative. I'M done with commercial rentals. Hooked on Turo. Thanks.

Ford Mustang 2015
Kevin's mustang is the perfect car to drive up to wine country in from San Francisco. The mileage limit worked out perfectly for us to do so in a day. The best part of our experience with Kevin was his flexibility. He conveniently has the pickup/drop off area close to the airport, but we had already been in the city a few days before needing the rental. So I reached out to him and it worked out for us to pick up the car from his residence in downtown. This saved us a trip down to the airport, and really just showed Kevin's willingness to be flexible and do what he can to make the experience as good as possible for the renter. I'm not sure if he will be able to change the location anytime someone needs it, but I can say he will try his best. Also, when dropping off the vehicle, we were waiting on our Uber and he even offered for us to stand inside his apartment while we wait to flee from the colder weather. He's just a trustworthy guy, and I would 100% recommend using his car for your trip to San Fran.
Grayson H. - October 19, 2018

I needed a rental last-minute, after another owner cancelled, and ended up booking Kenneth's Prius for a quick trip to Tahoe. Everything was smooth and easy, and the car was great! Would definitely rent again.
Jay A. - June 29, 2018
Toyota Prius 2011
Probably the best Turo experience I’ve had. Kennith and Valentino were super easy and accommodating for pick up / return. The car is great on gas and roomy. I drove 5 hrs up to eureka, and car ran perfectly. If I’m ever in San Francisco again, will deff be renting from again. Thanks for making my first trip to San Francisco so stressful and easy to get around ! Thanks again!

I have been renting with Nick for quite a while now and I’m never disappointed. This time around I rented his prized Challenger. It was a great time. I got the most bang for my buck. This car is faaaast. That 6.4 is no joke. His cars are always clean as always. Very punctual as always even tho I was running late. And always checking to make sure I was happy with my trip.
Keven H. - November 15, 2018
Audi A6 2013
First time using Turo and Felix made the experience so fantastic, not to mention that the vehicle was incredible. Definitely hope his vehicle is available the next time I'm in SF. Not having to deal with the holiday crowds at the rental car counters is a big plus. Thank you Felix!
Albert S. - December 27, 2018
Honda Accord 2009
The car was fuel efficient and gave us no problem. Nick made the trip a lot easier since he was very easy to reach through text. His response time was fast and he went out his way to figure out things that he didn't need to do. Great experience overall and I would definitely be contacting Nick next time I need a rental for a few days.
Josue C. - October 17, 2018

Basil is the best! Very professional, easy to communicate with, and provided an incredibly smooth experience. The car was great as well. I would gladly recommend renting from Basil! Look no further--you will be in good hands!
Jeff K. - April 15, 2019

Best deal on Turo in the Bay Area. Mark's car is pristine and brand new and the location is right to the airport. On top of that Mark was super flexible about pickup and drop off; he even gave me a ride to the airport!
Grant M. - May 3, 2019

Probably the best rental (experience and vehicle) I’ve ever had. Look no further if you want to see what Tesla is all about. Thank you Shubhang and David, hope to rent from you again.

Basil and his Type R are both awesome. The Type R is super fun, easy to drive, and brings you attention from fellow gear heads. Basil is super accommodating and an amazing host. He has great tips on where to take the car and was super flexible throughout the reservation. Basil and his car are highly recommended to anyone seeking a fun car to drive!

Aston Martin V8 Vantage 2008
Pick up was easy and Steven had pre-shared instructions for the Aston made getting started simple. The Vantage was an amazing drive. It delivered us to our destination in comfort and style and was not short on power. The transmission does these great rev matched down shifts as you slow. From outside the car you sound like an amazing driver. We had a lot of fun with the car for the three days we had it and would highly recommended it.

James A. - August 29, 2019
MINI Cooper 2010
JC was very accessible/easy to communicate with. The car was also easy to find and pick up. My only cons (which have nothing to do with the service provided by JC as a host) are that the transmission is a bit jumpy when trying to drive up the steeper hills of SF and the car itself is a little touchy with steering and braking. The ride of the car definitely didn't feel "smooth." However, we still very much enjoyed the little convertible driving around Napa & SF.

It was a pleasure to rent from Nick. Nick was easy to work with; he was prompt, easygoing while professional, communicative and clear, and available throughout the trip. The car ran smoothly and was kept very clean, and seemed kept in great condition for its age. I would definitely rent from Nick again if given the chance to. Thanks Nick!

David, his assistant was amazing! Very responsive, helpful and informative. Great guy. He really wants you to have a good time at a super affordable rate. He gave me a very good rundown of the model 3 and provided advices that made my trip worthwhile. Rented this car out to test drive it and I’m convinced it’s a great car and leaning towards getting one myself.
Kevin L. - April 26, 2018
Toyota Prius 2011
Ken's Prius is a good value for short and longer trips around California. He is understanding and is in close communication should any problems arise. In addition, he offers flexible options to pick up the car to fit your schedule. Best of all it's a Prius, so $30 will get you 450 miles of travel!
Andrew F. - June 7, 2018
Toyota Prius 2011
Easy pickup and drop off. Kenneth was was very helpful and easy to communicate.Car was super clean! I had a 2 weeks trip. I've visited 4 state's and car worked great, it was easy to drive and had good mileage. Will definitely rent it again!

Pick up and drop off were as scheduled on Felix’s end. Arrived to a beautiful, clean, and sporty Audi A6. Car drove like brand new and definitely turned heads on the street. Will rent from Felix again on my next trip to the Bay. Thanks!
Kenny B. - July 13, 2018
Toyota Prius Prime 2017
Renting Felix’s Prius was a great experience. He was quick to respond to any queries as well as quite flexible with pick up and drop off timing. I was also able to end the trip many hours ahead of the original trip schedule. Moreover, I forgot my camera in the car, and he informed us immediately and we could collect it before we left the city. He is a cool guy to rent from. I would rent from him again and would recommend to others.

This car was an integral part of our California road trip and made it even more incredible. Pickup and return were easy, the car was flawless and such a joy to drive. If you’re looking to rent a Model 3, this is the one you want. They have a true passion for Tesla and their push to move towards a more sustainable future. You won’t regret it!!! Thank you for making the driving portion of our trip as fun as the rest of the amazing sites and experiences in California!

Kevin is a great guy and communicates well . There was a pickup goof up because of 1 issue and probably not Kevins fault. I waited an hour on the location and finally was able to locate the car at some other location by help of some of folks that knew Kevin at his work place. Kevin was on vacation and Turo send me a confirmation that car is available at that location. The car is just excellent and is in great shape, rent it with some advance notice you will not regret.
Harpreet B. - January 2, 2019
Audi A4 2013
This was my first Turo experience and it went super well. The car was in great shape, very clean, and, being an Audi, was way cooler than the KIA or whatever I would have gotten from a rental company. Felix's communications were clear, friendly and super timely. I would definitely rent from Felix again.
John D. - January 25, 2019

Thank you Shubang. We thoroughly enjoyed driving the Tesla in California and had no problems with the car during the trip. It is important to note that the instructions on picking up the car were very helpful, even though we had driven one before. Thank you again. Best wishes. Andrew

Tesla Model 3 2017
We are trully enjoyed our California road trip in this Tesla Model 3. The car is amazing. Once you driven a Tesla with smooth takeoff, braking and one pedal driving, you will regret driving any other car. Autopilot works with Navigate on Autopilot made road trip significantly less tiring specially during LA traffic jams. Superchargers are everywhere and with Long Range version, so you're charging less often and spending more time exploring and enjoying. Great communications from Shubhang and David (his associate) throughout the trip. Pickup and return were easy and straight forward. They both passionate with Tesla and all EV future. Unfortunately in the last leg of our trip, thieves broke one-side rear passenger glass door and took two duffle bags from our trunk via the rear passenger seat. We always carry valuables with us and there were nothing in car seats. We managed to take photos of the thieves car and number plate and police got involved. Both Shubhang and David were very concerned about us and very caring and understanding. They were both very helpful in this unfortunate situation and Turo support with the insurance has been amazing so far. Would we consider to hire this car again? Absolutely. Both Shubhang and David are excellent hosts and worthy for a great feedback. Thank you so much!
