Convertible rental alternatives Skip the rental counter and book the perfect convertible from a trusted Turo host

Way better than
a convertible rental

There is perhaps no more enjoyable a driving experience than cruising along with the sun on your face, your hair whipping in the open air. When you’re in a convertible, you’re basically still outside — ignore the AC dial and let mother nature cool you down during your summer road trip.

If the weather cooperates, go ahead and live a little and find a convertible rental alternative nearby on Turo for your next adventure.

Find a convertible for every road

Drop the top, grab some sunscreen, and hop in your affordable convertible rental alternative for dreamy open-air motoring.

Go full vacation mode

You deserve everything a proper vacation has to offer. Embrace the sunshine and go roofless for your next trip — ceilings are for people with worries and schedules, anyway.

Have a beach day

If you’re near a coast, set aside a weekend day to go cool off at the beach. Grab your buddies or your kids, leave the shoes at home, and go get some sand stuck in your hair (just remember to vacuum the car when you’re done).

Try before you buy

If you’re in the market for a new convertible, take an extended test drive on Turo to get the full drop top experience so you can make an informed decision on which convertible is right for you.

I would highly recommended renting from Kent. I flew into San Francisco and this location was close to the airport and so easy to pick up and drop off. Made mine and my wife’s trip to Napa that much more memorably. Thank you again

Clean fun car. Turo valet made it super simple to pick up and drop off just like a rental facility.

I went to California for the weekend with a buddy and rented Tony’s Black BMW M325i. From beginning to end, he provided a seamless experience, even through unforeseen circumstances. The communication between Tony and us was incredible. His car was clean, sounded amazing, and made our trip that much better. I will be specifically looking for Tony’s rental listings.
David Jacob - September 10, 2019
Fantastic rental. Tony could not have been a better host. Car was in great condition. We had a blast lapping the bay area with the roof down and stopping at various attractions.

Popular convertible models

Drop tops, roadsters, & spyders

Ford Mustang

Nothing says “freedom” like open-top cruising in America’s most iconic vehicle. Embrace your inner tourist and hop in a Mustang convertible to ride off into the sunset like a proper cowboy.

Chevrolet Camaro

Chevy’s pony-car-turned-sports-car is also a stylish cruiser when you lose the roof. A convertible Camaro is the perfect ride for windy backroads, scenic highways, or just puttering around town to be seen.

BMW 4 Series

The sleek, muscley BMW 4 Series is a renowned sports car and luxurious coupe. But when you opt for a 4 Series convertible, expect elevated levels of confidence and drama on the road.

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.

Trevor was extremely communicative and accommodating. He is a great host, and he has an awesome car. The Viper is a hoot to drive, and appreciate him for letting others experience a car unlike any other. Was surprised how solid these 1st generation Vipers are, and while it has quirks and qualms, it is a high performance car from the 90s and was nothing unexpected. If you are in the San Francisco area for a day or two, I highly recommend the Viper for some highway cruising or open country roads.

Porsche 911 2006
5 stars simply for making this otherwise unattainable (to me at least) car available for a convenient rental. Had a great time driving it down the coast with the engine singing behind me. The convertible top works great as do the power windows. Bluetooth also worked and there were no mechanical issues, it was running strong. This is not a new car, however, so be prepared for some dents, scratches, wheel curb rash, and interior wear. As well as some electrical bugs such as the heated seats not working (big bummer) and the power mirrors getting stuck in the down position every time you unlock the car with the remote (annoying and potentially dangerous). Be advised, I was charged for not filling the tank all the way. It kept clicking and stopping and I didn't want to spill gas everywhere, so I stopped filling it but apparently there were still 2 gallons to go. Nick said it sometimes stops short if you leave it on auto but I was doing it manually. Would have been nice to have this quirk mentioned in the description, and I would have tried to jam those 2 gallons in the tank. I didn't mind paying the cost but it left a bad taste in my mouth after an otherwise great experience. The 5 stars still remain though. I will remember this drive for some time. Thanks again, Nick!

Porsche Boxster 2013
Alan and his lovely Porsche was my first Turo experience and what a pleasure! Alan’s car performs flawlessly and is perfect for California and well suited to driving Wine country and the coast which I did. It’s a sports car with low ground clearing so for one not familiar with San Francisco use Uber around the city and save Alan’s car for a trip out of the city. Surprisingly the Boxter with its front and rear boots can hold medium size luggage for 2 providing they are not hard cases which could present problems. Soft luggage is a safe fit for 2 people. Alan is very attentive, accommodating and wonderful to deal with and I look forward to renting his Boxter in the near future.

The car was ready to go at the SFO valet lot and easy to get to, pick-up, and drop off. The car was great to enjoy all up and down the coast and into Napa. Turo was supposed to clean the car and forgot, so it was on the dirty side being picked up. Ramsey drove an hour to our hotel to clean the car up for us. Above and beyond. He is super communicative and easy to work with. If in the San Fransisco area I would rent with him again.

We wanted a fun-to-drive convertible for our trip to Northern California. The 240 M edition delivered. Joshua was very responsive during our trip. He was willing to arrange a different drop-off location as our plans evolved. We were first-time Turo users, and Joshua and Alex took the stress out of the experience. The car came with Lightning cables for our phones with the CarPlay feature enabled. (BMW charges a subscription for that.) Once we got that sorted, the trip got much more convenient. The car includes the owner’s manual, which is helpful the first time you put the top down. Don’t try to drop the top on a whim, like at a stoplight, say. It takes about a minute, and the car will. Not. Be. Rushed.

This was our first Turo trip and it enabled us to afford a fun car that significantly impacted our travel experience. We enjoyed 12 days of gorgeous weather and panoramic views in a convertible and it was perfect! We traveled with two 12 year olds in the back and it was tight quarters, including a small trunk, but we packed light and it all worked well.
