This was my first time using this APP~and Miguel (was beyond) fabulous from start to finish! The rental was seamless…I would highly recommend Turo-Specifically, Miguel~for all future rentals in Santa Barbara area! Bravo!! Great Service!
My experience with Kyryl and his car was excellent! Pick-up and drop-off was a breeze, and the car was perfect for the weekend trip around Santa Barbara / Santa Ynez. Would definitely recommend!
Kristi was absolutely amazing ! The jeep definitely made our trip easy and smooth. Highly recommend reserving a car. Drop off and pick up at the Santa Barbara airport was flawless. Would definitely use again!
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.
An excellent experience. Robert was great to work with, easy, professional, and flexible. On top of that, the vehicle is beautiful and a joy to drive. When I need to rent again Robert will be my first stop - I’ll also recommend to fiends. Thank you!
Kristi was a terrific car host. Super fun car and she quickly addressed a question we had. Would definitely rent from her again!
Great, comfortable, affordable and well maintained vehicle. Would def rent again!
Musa was a great host and would love to rent his car again! It was roomy and comfort able with lots of nice vehicle features. Very fun to drive and loved the cooling cup holders!
Great owner! She goes the extra mile with details and punctuality. The car works great and comfy for long trips!
Caroline was wonderful and helped us with a new vehicle due to unforeseen flight delays!!! Great communication and just a great experience!
Mariah and her clean and gorgeous Jeep were 5 star all the way! Mariah responded quickly to questions and provided suggestions on fun things to see and great restaurants to visit. I highly recommend Mariah if you want a responsible owner who also cares about your experience! Thank you!!!
Miguel provided excellent response time, clear instructions, and a very well maintained and safe jeep. As a first time user of Turo, Miguel made it incredibly easy and a pleasant experience.
Chris couldn’t be easier to work with on getting on the road in a perfect car. Thank you.
Great experience - easy handoff, good communication, clean car. Couldn’t ask for better.
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.
Perfect car fir moving and if you and you friends want a road trip! Had a lovely time renting it! Perfect delivery and so kind and good people! Thank you for letting me rent it;)
Loved the car, robert was flexible when I needed to extend the trip. Thanks, will definitely consider renting again.
We had a great experience with Kyryl’s vehicle! He was quick to respond and helpful for any questions or details regarding the rental.
I would rent this vehicle again, it was clean, comfortable, spacious and easy to drive. Thanks to Daniel the owner, the pick up and drop off transition was thorough and seamless.
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.
The Car was at great condition and Joseph updated us all the time with all the informations we needed. It was a pleasure to rent his car!
Aleks was efficient and prompt to work with. The car met my needs and was a very enjoyable trip in SB.
Caroline made this process so easy - first time renter not from an agency and I couldn’t recommend this enough. 10 stars!
Renting from Caroline with contactless pick-up/drop-off was perfect, the car was excellent. Great experience, 5 STARS!!
I’m not sure where to begin on how amazing my experience with Kristi and John was , my daughters and I had an incredible Father’s Day weekend . The details inside the Jeep are so cool , they were flexible with every request , the only draw back is you won’t the trip to end and yup!! We extended the rental 😊.... will definitely be renting from them again !!!! Thank you guys -Derek and the girls
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.
Stephen and Cindy were great, and so easy to work with!! Great communication, and great car. Everything was exactly as they said it would be. Thank you again, and would definitely recommend them and their Model Y!
Paul was very kind, prompt, and was always available to contact. I had a great experience
It was our first time using Turo ad we had a great experience. Loved the Audi! Very clean, beautiful inside and out. Super easy pickup/ drop off. Caroline was great to work with.
Aleks was great to deal with. The car is in good condition and runs well. I’m a first time Turo user. The pick-up and drop was was easier and faster than traditional car rental services.
Wonderful experience with convenient pickup/drop-off. The Q7 performed excellent for our families needs with spacious modern comfort.
Great car and Kyryl is a great owner. He was right on time for drop off and pickup and made the experience easy and enjoyable.
