This the second time we have rented Hugo’s Ford Flex, and again we couldn’t have been happier. Hugo was reliable, friendly, and punctual, and the car was clean and exactly what we needed. Airport pickup and drop off was again extremely smooth, and the two car seats were so helpful. I highly recommend Hugo and his Ford Flex!

BMW M4 2018
Mustafa was great on pickup and return and made everything super easy. He responded immediatlly to any messages or requests. The car was amazing, perfectlly clean, and basically brand new. Made our vacation so much better than renting a boring car from a big rental company.
William H. - December 30, 2018
BMW 4 Series 2015
Brandon’s BMW is the ultimate experience. Why would you ever get a traditional rental car when you could drive a 435 for the same price. Brandon is awesome, super friendly, and flexible. I couldn’t recommend him anymore and I’ll certainly be booking again when I visit.
Chris P. - December 30, 2018

Nissan Altima 2017
Stephen's Nissan Altima is a fairly new vehicle that drives extremely well with excellent gas mileage. Interior was spotless and not a dent or scratch on the exterior either! Surprisingly powerful for a sedan that made navigating the hills of SD very easy. Stephen himself very kind in person, made the whole process efficient and stress free. He met us at the airport terminals which was so convenient. If we are back in San Diego, will definitely rent from Stephen again! Thank you!
Evgeniya B. - January 3, 2019
Nissan Sentra 2017
The car I rented from Alfred was just great. I had no issues at all. He picked me up when and where I asked him to pick me up. He was also flexible about me returning the car to him and even the location of the return making it a lot easier for me to not have to go to the airport, he came right to my hotel and picked up the car. This was my first turo experience and I must say it was a pleasant one.
Merri N. - January 2, 2019
Ford Fiesta 2017
Luso SD is located just outside of San Diego airport. Maybe about a 10-15 minute walk and no apparent option for shuttle. The car was clean when received and pickup and drop off was very quick.
Joshua C. - January 3, 2019
Tesla Model 3 2018
Although Brad's Tesla was a great car to drive around San Diego, what truly made this trip amazing was Brad's commitment to ensuring everything went smoothly. Communication was top notch, he was incredibly flexible and even waited at the airport to pick us up while we were delayed with checked baggage. Excellent experience overall.
Mohammad W. - January 12, 2019
Chevrolet Cruze 2018
Excellent car for a vacation in San Diego. Pick up location was a short walk from the airport and the host was very helpful with all information needed. Will definitely rent through Mina again!

Oleg is the man! He worked with us to book a last minute trip when a rental company didn't come through for my birthday trip out of town. This was my first time driving Tesla and Oleg gave us a thorough tutorial on how to best enjoy this wonderful vehicle! It made my birthday so amazing. :) I will rent with Oleg again in a heartbeat!

Good selection of cars to choose from that aren't your typical "rental car" at great prices! Hopefully you'll add airport delivery of the rental vehicles in the future.

The clubman was a fun car to drive and the experience of using Turo was pleasant. I prefer Turo’s car rental process much more than your regular rental companies.

Michael R. - November 27, 2018
Scion tC 2012
Oscar made pick up and drop off at the airport easy. It's kind of like having a friend drop you off and pick you up and bring you a rental car to enjoy for less than any rental car agency. And you get a clean car that looks cool and has a wonderful stereo. I will rent this car again when in San Diego. :)
Shari M. - January 1, 2018
Jaguar F-TYPE 2018
Once again another awesome experience with LUSO in San Diego. No problems with the F-Type at all!! Pick up and return was as simple as it could be. You know who I’m going to for a rental the next time I’m back in SD!!!!
Joel R. - December 3, 2018
Tesla Model 3 2018
Amazing experience...would highly recommend and rent again from Neal in a heartbeat! I traveled with my wife and two small children. From the moment I made the reservation, Neal could not have been more accommodating and helpful. We needed two child car seats, and he sent pics to put my wife and I at ease that our girls would be safe. The curbside pickup and drop off made it so we will never think of going to another rental car counter. Many thanks Neal!
Michael L. - January 4, 2019

Dr. Blake
BMW 3 Series 2014
I can’t recommend renting from Dan enough. She was there on time with the car drop off and there’s easy communication throughout our stay in San Diego when I had a few questions about the car. She was very flexible and changing the pick up location as well. And the BMW is an awesome ride.
Dr. Blake M. - January 3, 2019

Mitsubishi Mirage G4 2017
It’s my first time using this app and I got really frustrated with how this app works but because Mina is punctual and responds to my questions promptly. It helped ease some of my frustrations. She is professional and friendly so I would do business with her again next time I come visit San Diego again in the near future!
Elena E. - December 31, 2018

Ms. Fuentes was outstanding. Her car was extremely clean and her customer service was impeccable. I will definitely recommend her to anyone coming to San Diego.

Jack is cool! A little ADHD- but kind, helpful and really fun to talk to. The car was in great condition, and the one minor issue we had( a faulty low beam headlamp) was taken care of promptly and graciously! We come often to San Diego, and the combination of good price, great service, and reliable vehicle makes Jack our”go-to” Turo guy from now on.

Jose Mari
Tesla Model 3 2018
LOOK NO FURTHER - MUST HIRE THIS CAR! Deep Blue 3 is an absolutely amazing car! With all the amazing qualities you expect from a Tesla - performance, range, coolness and head turning colour. Sean is also an amazing host, most helpful and could not be more accommodating - with his long time residence in San Diego, Sean is able to recommended things to do and places to go to and is most quick to respond to messages. We definitely recommend to anyone hiring this car.
Jose Mari A. - January 7, 2019
Tesla Model 3 2018
Great car and superb service from Chip, we had a great time in our first Tesla experience driving all over the south west. Chip was always on hand to answer any questions we had. The autopilot is a real bonus for long stretches of driving, we used it a lot from Santa Barbara to Las Vegas. I would highly recommend hiring Chip's car.

This was my first of five trips to San Diego this year. Chris and his Wife made everything so much better. Coordinating everything with my flights and with a spectacular car. I will be sticking with him for the rest of my trips. Thank you again for everything!!

WOW!! What a beautiful car. Be prepared to talk to a lot of people about the car. It definitely turns heads. The car is very comfortable( I’m 6’2”) and runs like a dream. Pick up and drop off were so easy. Much better than the traditional rental car pickup. Very easy 10 minute walk from the terminal. We will rent again when we get back to San Diego!
Chris M. - October 21, 2018
Alfa Romeo Giulia 2018
I rented one of LUSO’s Alfa Romeo Giulias for a long weekend and had a great time! Their location 5min from the airport was super convenient. The car was in great condition, ready, filled up and clean for us to take; very smooth pick-up and return. In terms of communication, the LUSO crew doesn’t seem to check or answer the messages sent through the Turo app, so I just decided to call them whenever I had a question during my rental; the staff is very helpful and made my first Turo rental experience great! I’d rent again from them any time

This was my first Turo rental. I was a little hesitant and didn't know what to expect. All I can say is: I will never use a commercial car rental agency again. Full stop. And when you travel to San Diego, look no further. Rodolfo is your guy. Personable, courteous, helpful, flexible all balled into one. I had a great experience.
