Zoeb was accommodating with his car based on my needs and the unfortunate closure of the pick up/drop off location near SFO.

After having bad experiences with SFO car rental agencies, I decided to give Dan and Turo a shot. Dan was very communicative and helpful with the process and I saved a significant amount of money! Highly recommended!

Super easy pickup at Turo’s SFO lot, very convenient. Porsche Boxster did not disappoint either. First Turo experience was very positive overall, I’d rent from Edwin any time.

A fantastic way to see SF area! Excellent vehicle, easy pick-up and return, and no boring typical airport rental car. This was fun and I'll only use them when back in the area!

Very satisfied with our hosts. Went above and beyond to accommodate us. Having airport pickup and drop off was extremely convenient. Thank you for a great trip!

Mike
BMW Z4 2009
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.

Communication with Grayson was excellent. And, already owning my own Tesla outside the U.S., it felt good to not have to drive an internal combustion engine vehicle for this U.S. vacation. Very good overall rental experience. Would definitely rent from Grayson again.

Thank you so much - it was a great service for a very reasonable price (especially as compared to the standard airport car rental services) and Sachin is a great communicator! Will use Turo again and will try to rent Sachin's car!

Brian
Mercedes-Benz SL-Class 2017
Fantastic car - perfect for a trip around California. Spotlessly clean with a full tank on pick up at the airport - better than a regular rental experience in every way. Looking forward to the next time.

Pick up wasn’t exactly at the SFO airport as advertised, we had to take an Uber to the location. Other than that unexpected part, the rental was fine.
Shelly Z. - June 21, 2019
Stephen
Tesla Model 3 2018
This was our first Turo experience and it went very well indeed. Excellent communication before and during the trip. The vehicle was (as always for Tesla!) well equipped and very reliable. It has full autopilot so we could make California's highways (somewhat) relaxing. It's a "real" car, with signs of wear and various bits of owners' stuff tucked in corners. We felt this was helpful, because we would rather than rent a real car than deal with an obsessively clean owner. Shubhang was straightforward to deal with, set no unreasonable conditions, and handled the trip well. The valet pickup/delivery at SFO was also excellent.
Stephen P. - November 15, 2019

Pick up is not as convenient as airport pickup, but don't let that discourage you from renting. Would use again.

Andy
Porsche 718 Boxster 2017
Fantastic car and the process with Turo (my first) went very smoothly. Uber to/from SFO was easy to the Turo office, no longer than it would take to get to the airport rental car area. Ali's 718 Boxster was a great car (I've owned 2 Boxsters) and in flawless condition. This is a great car for a trip up to Napa - top raises and lowers in seconds so was easy to use in wine country. I appreciated the Tiptronic automatic as shifting a new car was one less thing to worry about in an unfamiliar area (and in particular on California highways). The car easily accommodated two medium-large checked backs in the trunks, and sync'd easily with my phone for music on the trip. Highly recommended!
Andy B. - July 17, 2019
Jack
Volkswagen GTI 2008
Great first-time experience with Turo, and Populous did not disappoint. Communication was easy and the GTI was fun to drive, if a little noisy. (It is a sport vehicle with 125k miles on it, after all.) The car was an 'airport' rental and the Turo Valet Lot option worked out just fine. (Uber to the off-site lot, pick up the car, return it to the lot, and get a free ride back to the airport.) I will definitely use Turo again, and wouldn't hesitate to use Populous again, should my travels bring back to the San Francisco area.
Jack M. - February 10, 2019
Suqi
Toyota Prius 2013
Super convenient for travel to/from SFO, and the car is great to drive and saves gas as an added plus! Dan was great at communicating through the app and made pickup very easy.
Suqi H. - March 3, 2020
Adrian
Honda Accord 2008
Awesome car for getting around the Bay Area! The car does have some minor wear and tear but it is mechanically sound and great on gas. Unlimited mileage cars based near SFO and are affordable are hard to come by now, Stephen's Accord is highly recommended for anyone needing transport for road trips throughout Norcal!
Adrian M. - March 5, 2020

Great Turo experience! Was our first one and couldn’t be more pleased. It was a very easy process and a great car for our week in San Fran. The location is pretty close to SFO and it’s a pretty cheap Uber to and from. I’ll def use Dan’s car again and would recommend him to anyone!

Great first experience. Better than regular rental car agencies.

Matt
Toyota Camry 2019
The car is great. I reserved it specifically because it had radar-based adaptive cruise control. Be aware that it doesn’t function under ~35 mph, unlike Subaru and Tesla adaptive cruise control. Also airport pickup was a bit stressful for us as we had a baby with us, but for a single person or couple without a baby it would be fine.

Kevin’s BMW was fantastic! He was very responsive through-out the entire rental. Pick up/drop off was a breeze. He even had an iPhone charger ready to go in the car! Thanks Kevin for the great communication. We booked a last minute car for an 8 hour layover in SFO. Was able to take the wife to see the Golden Gate Bridge, twin peaks, and a few other local spots. Will definitely be looking up Kevin again when we return, thank you!
Joe S. - February 6, 2020
Heather
MINI Cooper Countryman 2012
Super simple process even though the rental site is a few minutes from SFO - it's at least on the way in to the city! They easily reimburse ride fare from the airport. The pickup and dropoff process was very easy and they are really careful about pre and post inspections of the car. I talked to Ramesh a couple of times and he was great too! Even mailed me something I left in the car so I was very appreciative ;).
Heather W. - September 4, 2019

Great car, easy pickup very close to SFO, easier than the shuttle to rental car center. Lance communicated will abd was very accommodating when I requested ahead of time to extend the rental by 2 hours. This was my first time renting from Turo, and thanks to Lance, it won't be the last.
Jeff S. - February 5, 2019
Keith

Perfect rental with Dan in his fantastic Tesla. The ideal car to rent when traveling throughout the Bay Area. Simple pick up and drop off (so much better than rental companies at SFO). Great communication. Will rent again next time I’m in SF.

Brian

Long is a great owner and a pleasure to work with! He used the Turo Valet at San Francisco airport. This is a smooth process. When I did communicate with him, he was very responsive. I would recommend the rental from Long.

Mathieu

The rental of the Tesla Model 3 with Dan was amazing! Pick-up a short ride away from the airport was convenient. And Dan made it super smooth and relax. I'll definitely do this again next time I land in SFO.

Fenil and his Tesla were amazing! By far, the best Turo experience I have had yet. Communication with Fenil was easy and he's very responsive, SFO drop off and pick-up were a breeze and extremely convenient, and Fenil was flexible when I asked if we could extend our time with the rental. The Tesla itself was really cool, VERY clean (kudos to the cleaning detailers), super smooth driving from SF to Big Sur (don't think I can rent another car that's not a Tesla again :) Thanks again, Fenil, hope to rent from you again if I'm ever in SF.

WOW! What a great rental experience! Ali was responsive, willing to be flexible with a last minute trip extension, and the car was GREAT! I took the Porsche 911 out to the coast, from Palo Alto, down highway 1 and there isnt a better car for a quick trip like this! I've been a long time Porsche fan but driving a FULLY loaded 2017 Porsche 911 with the PDK trans, down Highway 1, is pure bliss. The car drives like it's brand new, which is a testament to how Ali takes care of his rental fleet. Thank you, Ali! I will be a repeat customer!
Joey H. - January 17, 2020
