My daughters and I were in San Francisco for the weekend, and we were fortunate enough to secure Rich’s Macan for a one day trip south to Monterey and Carmel. The weather was fantastic and the ride even better. Rich was a great host and communicated well and quickly. This was my second Turo experience (the first didn’t actually happen and ended horribly) and Rich restored the faith I had earlier in Turo. I would highly recommend Rich and the Macan any time you find yourself in San Francisco

Tesla Model X 2017
Fenil made this so easy. Curbside pick up and drop off at SFO! No hassle! Better than rental agency and cooler vehicle (Tesla model x). Fit our family of 6 with ease. Clean car! Gas was over $4 per gallon....not a worry in this Tesla! Drove to Monterey part of week and then to downtown San Francisco last part of week. Fenil is great at keeping in touch. Rent this car from Fenil, you won't regret it one bit.

Joe's Crosstrek was perfect for our mini road trip to Lake Tahoe. It snowed on our drive from San Francisco to Lake Tahoe but we didn't have any worries because his car is equipped with 4 wheel drive and snow tires. Pick up and drop off were very easy. I would rent again from Joe!

Although there were many concerns about the use in the first Turo, I changed my minds after meeting Ramon. The car was excellent and Ramon was very considerate in many ways. I would be happy to use Ramon and his vehicle again even if I were to visit San Francisco again.

David delivered the car early and clean. It drove well with plenty of power for the hills of San Francisco and the coast. It was very comfortable with plenty of room for four adults. David’s communication was excellent. I highly recommend this car.

Tesla Model X 2018
Rajat was great to work with on this Turo ride! Rajat met us at the SFO airport baggage claim right on time and was friendly and helpful. He demoed the key points of the Tesla and made us feel very comfortable driving and charging it. The Model S was in excellent condition, clean, polished, and well detailed. We drove it to Napa Valley and it performed flawlessly. Charging was easy and free at the Tesla Supercharger sites in Napa area. We put on 500 miles approximately. Returning the Tesla to his San Ramon location worked well as there is a free Supercharger there and close access to BART which I took back to my San Francisco hotel. It was a very easy dropoff and and I returned it fully charged. All around great experience with Rajat and his Model S! I would highly recommend renting from Rajat and plan to do so again next time I'm in the San Francisco area.
Thomas D. - June 3, 2018
Chevrolet Traverse 2017
I loved how the Traverse rides, good brakes and handles the streets of San Francisco like a champ! As for the space, the kids big and small in the third row we're kinda tight. The space in the center row is good to have. Its bigger than a Mazda Cx9 smaller and than a Toyota Sequoia. Mileage was good. We were allowed up to 1500 miles and we did just under 1200 miles from San Fran to Reno and back! Sam was easy to work with and gave us a great rental price. We enjoyed our trip all-around! Love TURO! Mahalo da Wondz
Kanani W. - January 10, 2018
BMW X5 2016
This was my first time using Turo and am very impressed. Rented a BMW X5 from Rahul in San Francisco and drove up to Napa for Christmas. Car was great and the convenience of not having to stand in a long line at the airport to get a car made it all the more pleasant. If you plan on being in the bay area, I'd strongly recommend connecting with Rahul for your rental needs or if in other cities, using Turo to get a better vehicle at a better price than the standard rental companies.
Andrew A. - December 30, 2018
Tesla Model X 2016
The Tesla Model X is an absolutely amazing vehicle, and Andre as a host made the experience even better! I picked it up with an almost full charge, clean and beautiful. Andre was very accommodating and responded quickly and supportively to my changing arrangements. The Turo Valet is a wonderful addition to the Turo experience and the professionals there make the process of accepting and returning vehicles very simple and smooth, for both owners and users. Will definitely use this car on future trips to San Francisco!
Shane P. - April 24, 2018
Jeep Wrangler 2014
The Jeep was awesome! Drove great for a jeep on 37" tall tires. Everything was in working order, no issues mechanically, electrically, and the clutch was in perfect condition and no issues with shifting. The Jeep does well on the highway (except for long uphills where it lacks power), and does great in the city surprisingly for the type of vehicle it is. Hard to miss the bright red and it really stands out of a crowd. Can carry 4-5 people and a decent amount of luggage. If I went back to San Francisco I'd try to rent this Jeep again.
Jarrett L. - November 10, 2018

Toyota RAV4 2018
My friends and I needed an AWD for a last-minute ski trip to Tahoe. Isaiah’s RAV4 was perfect: it ran great, exactly as described, handled beautifully, and was practically brand new. Isaiah was great to work with: he was so nice, communicative, honest, and cool. He was generous and laid back about car cleaning, return, and extra miles. I would definitely rent from Isaiah again. I highly recommend Isaiah if you are looking for a stress-free, very reasonably priced, and quality rental experience.
Judy M. - May 28, 2019
Mercedes-Benz GL-Class 2010
Overall was a pleasant experience renting from Clark. He was communicative and attentive. Pick up was a breeze using Turo Valet, and drop off even easier with Clark meeting us at SFO curbside. The car came in as described and was perfect for a family trip with a lot of luggage. The GL450 was in good condition and drove smoothly during our trip in SF and to Pebble Beach. Thanks Clark!
Sthira A. - June 13, 2019
BMW X1 2017
Howard’s BMW was brand new and very clean. The pickup and return was a breeze even if he can’t meet you in person he will give you easy and convenient instructions for how to get the key. Howard was very prompt to message or call back when I had a question. Overall my wife and I were extremely pleased with the ease of Turo, the owner’s communication, and the excellent vehicle we rented to do some sightseeing while in San Francisco. Also, our rental was very last minute and we were very happy he worked around our last minute request. 5/5 stars would highly recommend Howard. We will for sure see if his BMW is available next time we come back.
Christian P. - May 7, 2018
Land Rover LR2 2008
I highly recommend renting from Sean. Jon is his intermediary and between the two of them, they run an extremely efficient and customer oriented show. Pick up and drop off, via uber, were easy even though I both arrived (4:30am) and departed (3:00pm) at awkward hours. The Land Rover ran great and with the spectacular weather that San Francisco had, the weekend I was there, it was a real treat to be able to roll all 4 windows down along with a sunroof! Jon was available via text if I ever had any questions, comments, and concerns. Thanks to these guys I will not hesitate to use Turo again. Thank you again Sean and Jon for an amazing, easy, and fun transaction. All the best.
Matthew C. - June 28, 2018
Porsche Cayenne 2014
This was my first experience with Turo, and I can only hope that all future experiences will be this good. We loved Jon’s Porsche- such a fun, comfortable and luxurious way to see the sights of the San Francisco Bay Area! The car handled beautifully! Jon was very easy to work with and quick to reply to all my questions. Pick up and drop off was simple- it would have taken us much longer with a rental company and we would have had to rent a much less expensive car for the same rental price and all the paperwork was done ahead of time. I loved knowing exactly the car I was getting too- as opposed to the “type” of car a rental co would have reserved for us! Thanks so much Jon for sharing your car with us!
Debbie Y. - August 7, 2018

This was my first time renting with Turo and after this experience I would definitely do it again when traveling. Thanks Nazir!

So many great things about this trip! Ali was super friendly and responsive. He made me feel relaxed and when plans went awry (I had to extend an extra 24 hours) Ali was very accommodating. Delivery was prompt and Ali remained communicative throughout the entire trip. The car was unreal! Loved driving every second of it - great character, cool factor, and intoxicating Sport Plus exhaust growl. I will be back in town for business again but I will definitely seek Ali for he other fleet of amazing vehicles. Thanks Ali!
