Tesla Model 3 2018
Best Tesla Rental in the San Francisco/Bay Area. Looking forward to renting from Dan again! - JW
John W. - November 25, 2019
Tesla Model 3 2018
Great car for winter... Set up for Tahoe trips with genuine winter tires (not the m+s tires that some people claim are winter) combined with AWD and the Tesla advantage (fastest reaction for traction control) make this the best car for snow trips in California in any rental car. The roof rack is useful as well although I want skiing on this trip and didn't use it. The Tesla itself is of course a great car, long range but small enough to still fit through San Francisco streets. Drop off and pick up was pretty painless at the long term parking.

Daniel bailed me out when the host that I had a booked with cancelled my reservation at the last minute. If you want to rent a Tesla in San Francisco Daniel is your man. Great service, great cars at a fair price. If your thinking of buying an E.V renting one first is a great idea. I realized after driving his Model 3 that it is the best car on the road by far Nothing comes close!

This was such a great car to have along for the San Francisco Experience! You cannot go wrong with booking this Tesla!

Tesla Model 3 2018
I was looking to rent a Tesla for a reasonable price in the San Francisco area and Dan's listing came up. I was thoroughly impressed with the condition of the car and the car's performance did not disappoint. Dan was very friendly and communicated very well when a question arose about the car. I would definitely rent this car again from Dan, the next time I come to San Francisco!

Fabrizio was a great host and his car was very fun to drive. We were in San Francisco for a hybrid vacation/work trip and his Tesla got us around very smoothly and easily charged up at the supercharger network. We ran into an issue on our trip (my fault) and Fabrizio couldn’t have been more accommodating and understanding. If you are in the market for a ANY rental in the San Francisco area ride with Fabrizio.

Dan's Tesla was the perfect car for my trip to tour the Tesla factory. He had excellent communication and made sure everything went smoothly. If I'm ever in San Francisco again I will definitely rent From Dan again.
Darin E. - August 30, 2019

We loved driving Nick’s Tesla! Communication with Nick was very easy and he was very helpful. Always very responsive. I would definitely recommend this car if you’re in the San Francisco area! We loved driving such a terrific vehicle.

Anthony’s car is amazing and convenient to pick up and drop off in the center of San Francisco. We took a weeklong trip to Sonoma County and had a great time with the Tesla!
Gabor C. - August 18, 2019

The Tesla Model 3 was awesome to drive around San Francisco and the Napa Valley. Beautiful car with unexpectedly thrilling performance! Steffen was great to deal with and responded quickly to communications. 5 stars all the way.
Michelle M. - May 3, 2019
Tesla Model 3 2019
Great experience! Car was clean and great to drive. Great communication from Ramsey and team. Love the Model 3! First time Turo user and first time driving a Tesla. Great experience! We rented for a week to drive from SFO to Big Sur, then up to Napa and back down to San Francisco. It was awesome! Turo valet at SFO was also a breeze!
James C. - October 6, 2019
Tesla Model S 2014
Andrew's Tesla Model 3 is among cleanest and best kept cars I have rented on Turo. The San Francisco (San Bruno) lot was very convenient and the delivery and return of the car was very fast. Andrew provided excellent communication! Highly recommended!
Chad N. - October 21, 2018
Tesla Model S 2015
Dan has amazing service! Got the car ready for us on short notice and even took the time to show me the features of the car since it was our first time driving a Tesla. Very professional and clean! Can't wait to rent one of his Tesla's again when I come back to San Francisco. Would recommend him 100%
Michael B. - March 1, 2019
Tesla Model S 2015
Awesome! Rented John's Tesla for a cruise from San Francisco to Monterey for a long weekend. It was so good. Turo Valet a convenient but I would not hesitate to arrange meeting the host at another location if it makes more sense. Turo is the future.
Eric R. - December 16, 2019
Tesla Model 3 2018
Beautiful vehicle! We were excited to rent a Tesla on a recent trip to San Francisco. Hugo’s vehicle did not disappoint. We took the Tesla to Napa, and it was one of the smoothest rides we’ve ever experienced in a vehicle. We were concerned about charging stations, but there were a ton of options on our entire route. Great communication and response time from Hugo when we wanted additional time with the Tesla. Overall, great experience.
Flor C. - October 4, 2019
Tesla Model S 2017
As a first time Tesla user, I throughly enjoyed the experience of driving Jasmit’s Tesla for the day in San Francisco. Jasmit (Jesse) is a fantastic communicator and very punctual. I would not hesitate in recommending the experience to drive a Telstra.....it’s very different but so cool. Only a five would be to figure out in advance where to find supercharge areas as it can be a pain to find.
Angus L. - January 2, 2020
Tesla Model S 2013
My wife and I were in San Francisco for our honeymoon and Josh’s Tesla really made our trip. The cool factor of the car and how well it handles, and all the technology it has, the pickup location is great and Josh communicated constantly with us before during and even after the trip. Overall an amazing experience. Would totally do this again.
Pablo H. - February 26, 2019
Tesla Model S 2018
Sebastian was accommodating and courteous. His responses to our questions prior to and during to our trip were always prompt and helpful. The Tesla we rented on this trip is an amazing car. It is in great condition and so much fun to drive up and down the hills of San Francisco. The pickup and return were easy. I wouldn’t think twice about renting a vehicle from Sebastian again.
Taryn L. - October 29, 2018
Tesla Model 3 2018
It was so cool to be able to drive from San Francisco down to Monterey, Big Sur and to the Hearst Castle and then all the way back in a nice new Tesla Model 3 without burning a drop of gasoline. Charging was quick and easy and never took longer than our shopping break or lunch break. The car is a comfortable performance type sedan with plenty of luggage space and the Turo pickup and drop off process was easy and timely.
Claude B. - October 22, 2018
Tesla Model 3 2018
Genesis and Eric were excellent owners/hosts. Red Jasmine was in pristine condition! The thrill of driving the Tesla is something that needs to be experienced by everyone. The convenience of using the Turo Valet near the airport for pick-up and drop-off, as well as the complimentary airport lyft also made the experience worth while. We drove down to Monterey bay for a day trip from San Francisco.
Zachary M. - July 10, 2019

Amazing trip! This has truly given me a great idea of what it means to drive a Tesla!
Buddy M. - July 28, 2019
Tesla Model 3 2018
Driving a Tesla in a city you’ve never been to before is probably the best idea since Sliced Bread. The car looks/drives beautifully, and it’s Auto Pilot Navigation allowed me to truly take in every bit of the beautiful city that is San Francisco. Christopher gave me an excellent crash course and got me on the road on my own in less than 5 mins; allowing me the max amount of time with my dream car. For the price, you cannot go wrong for a glimpse of what the future brings for all cars.
Hector M. - April 25, 2019

The entire experience exceeded our expectations. Thanks again Chris! We look forward to future trips to the Bay area and we will be sure to rent from Chris again
Jacob S. - March 27, 2020

This was a fantastic trip. Being my first Turo experience, a was a little nervous about the whole exchange. Dan made everything easy and his Tesla was mint. He was very responsive on all communications and very helpful with exposing the process and the car. His Tesla 3 is absolutely beautiful and is so much fun to drive. I will be sure to be renting with Dan again next time I’m coming into SFO.
Steven B. - January 28, 2020

Local San Francisco favorites

Break free of the throngs at San Francisco’s Fisherman’s Wharf. Hop in your car and try these local favorites during your visit to San Francisco.

  • The Mission

  • The super trendy Mission District is home to some of the city’s best bars and restaurants, from trendy hotspots to low-key, cult-favorite taquerias like El Farolito.

  • The Upper Haight

  • Vibrant with colorful shops, restaurants, and bars, the Haight boasts unique businesses from its 60s heyday and today. It’s also close to Golden Gate Park, the perfect picnic spot.

  • Sonoma

  • While still mildly under the radar compared its sister over the hills (Napa), Sonoma is a perfect day trip from San Francisco, with dozens of outstanding wineries, restaurants, and hikes.
