Carlos was extremely responsive! Communication was clear. The car very clean and location convenient to the San Diego Airport.
The vehicle was is great condition (clean and sanitized right before we picked it up). Brian was very helpful and made the car rental process easy and convenient.
Best priced rentals in the San Diego area. Great rental experience! Highly recommended!

Sean was excellent to work with very professional and courteous I would definitely use Sean again when I could me back to San Diego!!!!!

Great car to cruise the coastline! The car was clean and well kept. Easy airport pick and drop off and Jesse was super easy to work with. Will definitely rent again. Thanks!
This was our first time renting via Turo for our family of 5 and it was really a great experience! Brent was very accommodating and professional. He was prompt with communications and pickup/ drop off. We also inadvertently left our toddler booster seat in the parking shuttle from our home airport. Despite the short notice, Brent came to the rescue with a car seat allowing us to safely drive directly to our destination. The Highlander was spacious and clean. It drives really well compared to our heavier Explorer. Thank you Brent!
Dale was very receptive to pick up/drop off location and time. The car ran great and made for a nice day sight seeing San Diego. Would recommend Dale to anyone looking for a nice car to get around in without breaking the bank.
Great vehicle in great condition! Exactly what we needed for our family trip to the San Diego area. Susan was a great communicator! Would recommend her and her vehicles to anyone.
Great spacious car for san diego! Jessica made everything super easy and convenient for our weekend. Will rent again for sure!
Great car and Ray was super-quick to respond! Address was tricky but Ray walked us through to finding the car. Car had plenty of power for the flat roads in San Diego and plenty of room for the 3 of us and our luggage (but barely LOL).
The best Turo host I’ve ever had. Pick up and drop off was flawlessly easy, The car was everything I needed and more - great gas millage, smooth ride, and features made my trip just that much easier. I would 100% recommend this ride for anyone needing a car in San Diego.
The car was easy to locate by following Curtis’s instructions. We loved having it to drive around the San Diego area! 10/10 recommend renting from Curtis, he was very friendly and the car was perfect!
Clean and great driving vehicle. Was perfect to take to Joshua tree and ride through San Diego.
Mae was wonderful! Very responsive, flexible and the car was in immaculate condition! Highly recommend!
Fantastic trip, clean car. Juan was incredibly accommodating when our flight plans changed and we had to make an early return, and was very helpful through the entire process.
Dale was extremely accommodating and helpful. Renting with him was a breeze and I would do it again! Thanks so much for making this easy. ☺️
Brian is a great host. Good communication and the car was in great shape. Very close to the airport as well. Highly Recommended.
Sukrat was very helpful and made the handoff super easy. The SUV was clean and well maintained. I Sorta missed the features of a newer model like GPS and backup cameras, etc.
Dale was great! And super helpful. The car super nice and clean and just what we needed
Very clean and large SUV, perfect for a family road trip. Centrally located within San Diego and Molly is great.
Huynhlong met us at airport as we arrived and departed. Service was 1st class and his vehicle was great for my family. It was very nice and the perfect size for 4 people with 4 suitcases. When we return to San Diego, I would contact him again.
Dr Tanner was excellent to deal with. He connected with us at the very busy San Diego airport both on arrival and departure, The car was in excellent condition, Highly recommend.
Brent was amazing and came in clutch on a last minute booking we needed. He was responsive and on time. We even left an item in the car and he offered to mail it to us. Really appreciate all he did to make our trip to San Diego a breeze!
Great vehicle to tour around San Diego for a few days. Sunroof and the back hatch window fully open and allows an almost convertible feel to enjoy the sea breeze and ocean air. Was clean and ready to go when promised and a very convenient transfer at the airport made my trip easy.
Nice efficient car for a weekend trip in San Diego. Curtis is a great host who is also responsive and accommodating. Highly recommended!
This car was amazing- I want to buy one! Extremely clean and easy to drive. Also it barely used any gas. Shawn was quick to respond to all my messages and everything went smoothly. Couldn’t of asked for a better car rental situation!
Ray was amazing. Was responding at all times. 5 stars all the way, can never go wrong with a car like this in San Diego.
Such a great host! Super great energy, super accommodating and made my trip in San Diego COMPLETE!
Ryan is a great host and keeps his vehicle in excellent condition. He also communicated well during the course of my trip. A+
Brian's Toyota Sequoia saved the day when our rented minivan was no longer available! While we were disappointed with this major rental car company, it turned out to be fantastic because we discovered Turo, and lucked out when Brian's sparkling clean Sequoia was available. The process was easy and fast, and Brian made the pick up and drop off smooth. We will definitely use Turo again. Thanks Brian for making our first experience with Turo so positive!
They were so sweet and understandable about what happened. I am ver happy and glad about the trip. Thank you a lot
Kamal was awesome ! Super easy transaction. If you are the type to just book, grab, and go. This will be perfect.
Sukrat was great! My family and I had to cut our trip short and we needed to drop the car off earlier than expected. Sukrat was extremely helpful and understanding of our situation. Next time we’re in San Diego, I’ll definitely use him again.
Super easy to communicate with and hosts were very understanding and patient with car seat installation and small children. They made our trip to San Diego so much easier with their airport pick-up and drop-off situation, too. 10/10 would book this again.
Last Friday (after a week of vacation) we returned Hayder’s car to the San Diego airport. Ten minutes later, Allegiant Air texted and said our flight was cancelled. Hayder had already left the parking lot to go home. I quickly texted him and asked if we could still use his brand-new car. Hayder drove it back for us (took him 30 min with traffic) and then waited for over an hour for the airline to decide what flight they could put us on to get home. They couldn’t find anything for 2 more days—but this time flying out of LAX. I asked Hayder if I could driving it to LA from San Diego and leave it at that airport. He was so kind to us. He allowed us to do that even though that is not a renting option! He also checked on us several times over the 9 days and was willing to help however he could. He is sincere & cares about his customers. He took a bus down to LA today so he could drive his car back to San Diego— Probably taking about 2-3 hours extra of his time to an airport he doesn’t even rent from. He is honest and trustworthy. I cannot say enough good things about Hayder. He is a wonderful human being that went out of his way for me & my 4 kids. Thank you so much. I will definitely use you again Hayder.
This was my second time using TURO and also renting from Curtis after such an amazing experience the first time. Curtis is top notch and makes this service so easy to use and convenient for our weekend getaways. The details and instructions are so thorough from start to finish. I even had a few questions and got almost instant responses back. He has a variety of current model vehicles of all sizes that are super clean, well equipped and a joy to drive. I will surely rent from Curtis again and continue to recommend to all my friends and family looking for a more customer focused, convenient and affordable alternative to traditional rental car companies. 5 star and beyond!
Booked a last minute trip to San Diego. Hayder was a good host, he was prompt and on time. Vehicle was clean and reliable, we had a great experience overall! Will definitely do this again.
Very comfortable, smooth ride. Def will book again when in San Diego. Ryan was an amazing, professional, friendly Host. Thank you again so much.
Jow was an amazing host and was very pleasant to work with. The car was great for San Diego, especially if you are looking to save on gas! Would definitely book this car again if we return.

Pick up and drop off was fast and easy. The host was very professional and friendly. The car is very clean and smooth If i need an SUV again this is the one I would book again.
I had a great experience working with Linglei. We had a rock chip happen to the windshield. Linglei and I both worked with Turo. Linglei was fare in getting an estimate to fill the chip. And reported the invoice to Turo. I had zero issues. I appreciate Linglei being fare and responsive and super nice! I would absolutely rent from him again! The car was extended clean and a joy to drive.

The truck was fantastic. Exactly what I needed for just that day, even had some of the paint scrapped off the back tire wheel and they were FANTASTIC to work with! Definitely would recommend using their car!!
Great car, a little warn but was clean, what I would expect from a 6 year old car and it was an amazing price for it. No complaints!
1st time using Turo. Great experience. Had to do a little extra work taking pictures but worth not having to wait in long line like in a commercial rental. Host Carlos was very responsive to our inquiries and provided a great car. Definitely recommend this service!
