Angelique was a wonderful host! She spent plenty of time explaining how her Model 3 worked since we had not driven a Tesla before. She was very accommodating to our plans, and she and her husband could not have been nicer or more friendly! We would absolutely rent from again!

Max was a great host and very accommodating. He's easy to coordinate with and willing to explain anything about the Tesla. Renting the Tesla convinced me to get one and made family and friends interested in getting one as well. Overall, great experience and I do plan on doing this again next time I'm in San Diego. Thanks Max.

Oleg is the man! He worked with us to book a last minute trip when a rental company didn't come through for my birthday trip out of town. This was my first time driving Tesla and Oleg gave us a thorough tutorial on how to best enjoy this wonderful vehicle! It made my birthday so amazing. :) I will rent with Oleg again in a heartbeat!

Tesla Model S 2016
I want to thank iosef for allowing me to rent his car. The car was amazing and so clean and drove like a dream. Unfortunately Turo hides a lot of their fees. Be sure to look after you hit book because their shield policies do not show a price beforehand and i got charged an additional $114 I did not agree to.
Michelle D. - June 20, 2019
Tesla Model 3 2019
Edith was a true professional. The Tesla she provided looked like it had been freshly detailed, and it was fully charged and ready to go when delivered. Edith was also very punctual with pickup/delivery, despite the early hour delivery time we requested. I would highly recommend Edith to anyone, she does a great job.
Zach S. - June 23, 2019

Tesla Model 3 2018
My first time using Turo and it was amazing!!! Magnus is a great communicator, super friendly and very patient. When we picked up his Tesla, he walked us through every detailed of the car. The car speaks for itself! Very clean, fast and best of all, no gas. Super charging stations are free which is a plus. If I can give him 10 stars I would. I was 30 mins late to return the car and he had no problem with it. Very understanding. Definitely will rent again.
Thanh N. - July 9, 2019

Tesla Model 3 2018
We decided at the last minute, I mean 10pm the day before we flew into San Diego, to rent a car so reached out to Neal. He responded right away and was able to drop the spotless, fully charged Tesla for us at the airport. Amazing service! The car was fantastic to drive for the 4 days. The Tesla Superchargers and quite accessible if needed ( there was nowhere to plug in at our condo we rented so had to use them ). The model 3 is very easy to drive and quite comfortable. Neal was ready to give us a tutorial on using the car if we needed any help. Any time we needed to correspond with Neal he responded within minutes. At the end of our trip we were able to drop it at the airport again which made it very easy for us.
Ken W. - October 2, 2019

Tesla Model S 2014
Heather made my first experience with Turo seamless, so easy and fun. She is such a thorough and prompt communicator and I really could not have asked for a better first time. From the car itself to giving us recommendations for sights in the city to even the smell of her car (similar to Volcano at Anthropologie if you know the scent) everything was perfect! She’s so great!
Lynna N. - March 12, 2019

Tesla Model 3 2018
I am looking to purchase a Model 3 and figured a full day test-drive would swing me one way or the other. Car was great and highly recommend using Zachary because it was priced very reasonably compared to others on Turo and pick-up / drop-off couldn't have been easier. 5 Stars!
Phil S. - May 22, 2019

Jarrod G. - May 28, 2019
Tesla Model 3 2018
My very first Turo experience, and I couldn't have asked for a better first experience! Shannon communicated back and forth very fluidly, and offered his number in case I had any questions about the vehicle. If you plan to have the vehicle delivered to you, you can expect Shannon to always show up on a timely manner during both drop off and pick up. The car arrived clean, just like a brand new car. Shannon explanation of all the controls of the vehicle were very simple and easy to understand, but at the same time covered everything you would need to know to drive the vehicle enjoyably. Without a doubt, if I plan on renting a Tesla again, I will consider Shannon's Model 3 as my first pick.
Simon H. - December 14, 2018

Local San Diego favorites

A taste of the islands on the mainland, San Diego is equal parts mellow getaway and bustling metropolis. Book a car and cruise the coast for some epic SoCal vistas and adventures.

  • The San Diego Zoo Safari Park

  • For those of us who can’t swing a trip to the Serengeti, the Safari Park is an exceptional local alternative. A short drive up to Escondido for the day will transport you a million miles away.

  • North Park

  • An artsy neighborhood just north of the zoo, North Park is overflowing with boutiques, cafes, bars, galleries, and the North Park Farmers Market.

  • Ocean Beach

  • No trip to SD is complete without a beach trip. Drive your Turo car down to OB, rent a board, ride some waves, and finish off the day with "the world’s best burgers" at Hodad’s.
