Average ratings for vans on Turo
Quick and easy pickup and drop off! Cheaper than rental companies. Renter was the Best!
Great car, owner communicated quickly. Enjoyed our adventure in San Francisco! Thank you!!
As my first rental through Turo, Clay set the bar. He was transparent with his communication and the condition of the Jeep, he gave numerous recommendations for our stay in SF, and was very accommodating during the return of the Jeep. When any issues or questions arose, he promptly addressed them. I plan on renting from Clay again in the future when visiting the San Francisco Bay Area. Thanks for a great experience!
Thoroughly enjoyed renting Mattia's car for my family of 8 during a vacation in San Francisco. Mattia was very personable and car was very clean when picked up. The car was also easy to drive and handled San Francisco hills with no problem!
This Porsche is a great ride! We chose to pickup the car at San Francisco International and once we landed, the car was waiting for us. The car was spotless and had a full tank when we picked it up. The car offers a smooth ride and attracts loads of compliments. Austin was very accommodating to all of my requests. I plan to rent from him again whenever I’m in the San Francisco area.
Minh is awesome! Responds promptly and made our car experience in San Francisco a breeze.
Great trip, and great car! This Mazda made our family trip to San Francisco a breeze!
This trip went very smoothly from pick up to drop off. I highly recommend Gustavo for car rentals in the San Francisco area!
Had a great experience in San Francisco using Marco’s Porsche Macan 2020. He communicated well and provided an exceptional experience.
Junjian was a great coordinator and the car was perfect for our trip! Will definitely turo with Junjian when we are in the San Francisco area again.
Tony and Jenny were very responsive and made the rental process so easy! I would definitely rent from them again.
Great car and awesome host. Enjoyed my time in San Francisco with a ride that was trust worthy and fun. Highly recommend renting from these folks again!
Wonderful car & great host! Will definitely be renting from Sergey anytime I’m in the San Francisco area. Highly recommend!
Kailun was very flexible and communicative! Would rent from again if ever back in San Francisco.
Host was very accommodating! It was a pleasure renting their Jeep. They go above and beyond for their renters! Will definitely rent again when I’m back in San Francisco.
Raymond was prompt and helpful throughout the rental process. His Tesla is loaded with features and was perfect for shuttling our team around.
My wife and I recently rented our first car on Turo from Sean during our weeklong honeymoon in San Francisco: Sean made the rental process streamlined and simple, he even went above and beyond adding some personal touches to make our trip extra special! The process of renting from him via the Turo app was far better than any experience I’ve ever had renting a car in the past. The Jeep Renegade was perfect for exploring the Bay Area, from the hills of the city to the winding passages of the Pacific Coast highway. I highly recommend renting it from Sean during your trip! 😄
The vehicle and host were awesome. Will definitely use them again when we come back to San Francisco
I love S&D they have nice luxury cars and great customer service They make the pick ups and drop offs super convenient I always rent with them anytime I’m in San Francisco
Smooth transitions in and out of San Francisco airport. No complaints. Car as expected. Host very accommodating. Thanks Joseph!
Zhiyu is a very attentive Turo host. He was very accommodating with me and made the rental process very easy. He was very quick to respond to any communications. The Macan I rented was clean, drove great, and looked great inside and out. I would recommend renting from Zhiyu. When I’m back in San Francisco I hope to be able to rent from him again.
Amazing service great clean car definitely recommend using bud anytime I come to San Francisco 😁
Wow! Susanna provided fantastic customer service and assistance. Thanks to her, our San Francisco trip has been great. (The Jeep Patriot was fantastic too!)
Pick up and drop off at the San Francisco airport parking was easy. The car was clean and as advertised.
Jeremiah was helpful and attentive to all of our needs! The car drives nicely and was able to accommodate my friends and I during our stay in San Francisco.
This was my first Turo experience and S&D Motors made it seamless. Great communication, perfectly accessible in San Francisco, and even agreed to refund a day of the trip because we returned the car early (per the Turo rules, they didn't have to do so). WAY easier than dealing with a rental company!!! We will definitely use S&D for Napa and San Fransisco car rental needs! Thanks
JJ was very communicative and accommodated last minute request. Car was very clean, smelled fresh, and almost felt like it was brand new with zero miles. I would rent again. This might be my go-to when i'm in San Francisco.
Gabrielle was timely, efficient, and professional and made using her car for our trip a breeze! Highly recommend booking through her for your next visit to San Francisco!
Great experience with Jordan. Jordan was very communicative and the drop off and pick up experience was very smooth. The car was clean. Would highly recommend if you are visit the San Francisco area!
Fabricio was great and helped me out when a drop off location change was needed. Clean car, great deal, will definitely use him if ever back in San Francisco!
Emanuel’s service and Audi was top notch!! Look forward to booking with him again next time I’m in San Francisco.
Irakli was amazing to work with! Super responsive and met us at the SFO terminal to drop off and and pick up the Jeep. Seriously - awesome customer service. If we make it out to the SF area again, we will be booking with Irakli. The Jeep itself was amazing - the retractable roof was perfect for our trip down to Big Sur, up to Point Reyes, and finally all over San Francisco. The Jeep handled beautifully and we are thinking about purchasing a similar model ourselves.
I was dreading the process of finding a rental in San Francisco and am SO HAPPY I came across S&D Motors on Turo. My trip’s itinerary changed several times during the week and the host was extremely accommodating and flexible. They even put me in a different vehicle when my original rental wasn’t able to be extended. Both vehicles were in great condition. Thank you, S&D Motors!
Junjians ride was a great choice for me for the days I was out in San Francisco, he is also very responsive & was very flexible with handling the changes/extensions I made which I appreciated a lot
The vehicle is great and Jillian was easy to communicate with. It was perfect to drive in the San Francisco Bay Area. I would rent again when I am back in town!
Tony is great always use him when I travel to San Francisco always on point definitely five stars and recommended 👌🏻👌🏻
To be honest when I arrived someone was working on the car but I was 2 min early. Car was ready on time. All worked. Wasn’t super clean but hey, street parking and a 2012 car. End of the day all OK and I would rent again from Nikola.
As a first time user I was surprised at how smoothly the entire process went. Great car, great service, great experience! Highly recommend you rent this car if travelling to San Francisco!
Super thankful to be able to rent out Djamel’s Durango for a day. My sister and her husband came down for a wedding and he hasn’t been to San Francisco and desperately needing a car, I Literally just heard about Turo and was looking for a SUV and this happened to pop up with a good/cheap deal. The Durango was perfect and so beautiful, I really want to buy one now. This won’t be the last time I rent out Djamel’s car. Thank you thank you thank you:) check him out y’all his car won’t disappoint:) 10/10 ✔️
I enjoyed driving this car and Ian made the process super easy. This ML 350 is very clean and drives beautifully. I plan to rent this car again next time I’m in San Francisco.
This is the perfect jeep for seeing San Francisco and heading out into the mountains. Pick-up and return was a breeze. The small size made it so easy to park. The 12 gallon tank was a bit of an inconvenience. Highly recommend.
Megan was very accommodating and helpful. Her car drove very well and was spotless. She was quick to answer any questions and allowed us to make a last minute adjustment to our time so we could make a dinner reservation. Highly recommend her if you are ever in the San Francisco area
Fantastic car, great owner. Easy rental process, except we were new to Tesla and could have used a primer on how to drive and how to charge it.
Awesome car, Super clean and in great condition! Also Megan is very helpful and flexible! Great find in San Francisco! thank you so much!
Albert was a perfect host. Very attentive and made sure everything went perfectly for our trip to California. The car was immaculate and drove well. It was an easy experience getting the car and returning it out of San Francisco Airport. I would definitely use Albert and his cars again when we return to CA.
Jordan was highly responsive when we needed to move up our pick up time due to a flight change. The car was exactly as advertised and our experience with Turo was a great one!
The car was wonderful. It handled so well venturing up into Napa, down to the Monterey Peninsula and all around San Francisco. Nikkelle and her husband proved truly reliable with communication being on-the -spot (as well as being super nice people). When coming back to SF, I would look no further for renting a vehicle.
What an amazing car. Took it for a small trip to Yountville and back to San Francisco. Handled everything easy no problems. Excellent communication from the owner from get go. Will rent this same car again in future
Had a great time in San Francisco. Car was dropped off and picked up right at the doors. You could not ask for anything else. Thank you so much for making it so easy.
Chad is a very accommodating host. Easy to communicate with and offers clear details. The car was a very nice ride with plenty of room for 4 adults and bags. This was our first Turo trip, Chad made it very easy and enjoyable! If you are coming into the San Francisco area and need a car, I highly recommend Chad as your host. Thanks!
What a great ride! It’s probably the most comfortable ride in San Francisco and well worth it! Joseph is great and met us early in the morning. He gave us a tour of the car and kept in touch during the day. I really appreciated his help in navigating the city and teaching us the tips and tricks of San Francisco. I would highly recommend his Discovery—it’s truly a great ride and Joseph was such a gracious host!
Had a few snags but they made it right. The car was almost new and was a pleasure to drive , the sun roof helped better enjoy the cool San Francisco weather. Great vehicle with great staff.
