Our trip with Kristi’s Jeep was great! The Jeep was in great condition and super clean when we arrived. The handoff of keys and drop off at the end of our trip were seamless. I’d definitely rent Kristi’s Jeep on future trips to Santa Barbara!

The car was clean and the gas tank full. Elissa met us at the airport and was very friendly and accommodating. We LOVED the Q5! We own 2 Audis, so we were right at home. If you're visiting Santa Barbara... this is your car.

I loved everything about my experience with Kawena and her Kia! The car is fabulous: clean, a wonderful ride, comfortable. Kawena took my reservation last minute, was right on time for both drop off and pickup of the car. They even met me at 4:30AM! for car transfer before my early morning flight home. Highly recommend!!

Very nice car, will definitely rent again when I'm back in SB. Leather, backup cam, Bluetooth, tinted windows, spotless interior. All in all a great deal for the price. Host was also very nice, helped me with a car charging cable and left a couple bottles of cold water in there when I picked it up.

Toyota Highlander 2013

Great car. Better host. Eric is AWESOME!!! On Sunday evening, my girlfriend and I suddenly needed to rent a car for Monday morning. There were limited options, and most were unwilling to book on such short notice. Despite requesting the car barely 12 hours in advance, Eric had the car freshly cleaned and ready to go. When we picked it up, it was in immaculate condition and even had a bottle of hand sanitizer in the cup-holder. After already having booked this trip last minute, our plans shifted again and we had to change the pickup time of the car. Then, our plans shifted AGAIN, and we had to change the drop-off time. Eric had every right to be annoyed with us, but instead was remarkably kind and accommodating. The car itself is in great condition and runs very well. Leather seats, very roomy, the car has all the bells and whistles, including Bluetooth and a sunroof. It is also surprisingly fuel efficient for its size. Despite being what I would describe as an SUV class vehicle, I drove this car from Santa Barbara to LA and back (apprx 200miles) and spent exactly $20.02 in gas, which is more or less the same as when I take my regular car. I have used Turo a lot over the years. Though I have never encountered a bad host, Eric and his vehicle stand out in my mind as an exceptional; experience. Whether you are lugging around a lot of gear or just dropping your girlfriend off in Los Angeles, or anything in between, I highly recommend Eric and his Toyota Highlander.

We had an excellent experience renting from Christina. She was friendly and helpful throughout the entire process. She was on-time meeting us and willing to accommodate our request to meet at the airport shuttle stop. The car was clean and a pleasure to drive, exactly as depicted in the pictures. She offered us restaurant recommendations. She communicated in a timely, helpful way. We were very happy we Turo'd with Christina and would highly recommend her to anyone.

Loved my experience with both Steven and the car. I felt safe, taken care of from Steven, and enjoyed my trip. I was grateful to be able to travel around in a good and capable car. I appreciated the simple things that made things much easier for me like the door code, pictures of where the car was parked, and prepaid airport parking. Would definitely rent again.
