“...a great alternative to traditional car-rental services, in part because you get to choose exactly the vehicle you want (not just, say, ‘midsize’).”
Forbes

Renting John's Model S was a great experience all around. He takes good care of the car and he made sure it was all charged up and ready to go when we arrived. The Turo valet lot was very convenient for pick up and drop off from SFO. My experience couldn't have been better. Thanks, John!

It was my first time using Turo, and I'm glad I did. Steve's BMW 128i made my trip much more enjoyable driving a fun stick-shift car rather than some basic economy rental car. I'll definitely be using this again when I fly through SFO.

Amazing host. I had a very late night pick up and the host went above and beyond to accommodate my schedule. Pick up is extremely convenient as is return. The car is remote unlocked and locked which helps in case you’re not sure what time exactly you will arrive. I had to extend and it was very easy. In addition, the car was clean and the rate is very reasonable. I will recommend this host to family and friends.

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.

This was hands down one of the most seamless experiences I’ve ever had on a car sharing platform! Kodz was responsive, instructions were thorough yet simple, car was exactly as described, and exactly where it was suppose to be. Couldn’t have asked for a better experience, let alone a last minute one. Will be renting again! 🤙🏽 PS: It might have just not been in there during my time, so maybe ask if this is important to ya, otherwise, make sure to bring your own auxiliary cord if you plan to drive somewhat of a distance, and want play your own music or your favorite podcast #roadtripsurvivaltips lol.

Clark is well prepared and the car ran faultlessly. We were snowed in at Kirkwood and had to change our return date. Clark was understanding and we arranged a new drop off. The BMW530x started first go after being buried in the snow for 5 days. It handled the snow covered roads easily. Confidence inspiring drive in difficult conditions.

The communication with Tony was easy, he helps a lot (he left the car at the airport for me, which was a big help!).
