Great car! Great hosts! The Bat Mobile was amazing! Super clean, easy to drive, and pick up/ drop off was easier than I could have imagined! It made our trip so easy! I don’t think we will ever use an airport car rental company again.
Nathan B. - February 13, 2019
Audi A4 2018
Perfect experience. The walk from the terminal and pickup are faster than renting directly at the airport. Nice clean car. Some small pre-existing cosmetic blemishes required documenting prior to departing. Great communication during the rental process.

Mitsubishi Mirage 2017
Rudolfo met us at the car, which was a pleasant surprise, and helped us newbies through the whole rental process. (There was a lock box on the car so we thought we would be on our own.) He is great to work with! Return communication was almost instantaneous!!! Now, as for the Mitsubishi Mirage we rented, meh! Not too thrilled driving it. It was kind of a noisy rattle-trap on wheels. If you can afford better, I’d recommend it.
Lisa S. - February 23, 2019
Toyota Camry 2018
Perfect host to my first rental, I had no idea what I was doing, messaged me via turo app everything I needed to know. Answered messages throughout the trip in a very timely fashion. He himself was very friendly.

car was great. only thing is the front bumper was pretty beat and kind of noticeable from a distance. i understand it’s from it being a rental and the car being lowered but still. otherwise i didn’t have any issues with it. car gets amazing gas mileage, i only used 3/4 of a tank the 4 days i had it.

Duane C. - February 20, 2019
Kia Soul 2013
Mina’s service was amazingly easy and convenient! The location was in a lot right next to the airport. Basically, you get a code to a lockbox to get the key to the car (it’s an introvert’s travel dream, no human interaction needed.) The car was clean, nice looking, easy to drive, and perfect for my first trip around San Diego! I would definitely use this service from Mina again! :-)
Alexandra P. - February 28, 2019

Nissan Altima 2009
Szabolcs’ Nissan was mechanically sound, comfortable, drove great and gets good gas mileage. It was a perfect car for my needs and the price was outstanding. Szabolcs was very easy to work with, he communicates clearly and the pick up and drop off from the airport was very easy and convenient.

This could not have worked out any better. Elizabeth was great to deal with and made everything incredibly easy. She met us at the airport for arrival and departure. It was so much easier and less expensive than a rental car company. The car was fun and easy to drive. I would have been disappointed to be in San Diego and not be driving a convertible. Thank You!!!

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.
Guiuliani O. - April 7, 2018
MINI Clubman 2017
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.
Dustin D. - April 15, 2018
Nissan Sentra 2014
Jack was great. He was on time to pick us up from the airport and when we needed to drop off the rental car. We needed to get to the airport at 8 am but the office didn’t open up until 8am. Jack met us about 20 mins earlier so we would be able to drop of the rental and made sure we got to the airport so we wouldn’t miss our flight. Definitely would rent with Jack again!
Ari B. - February 19, 2019
Nissan Sentra 2012
Sabi is a very pleasant young man and accommodating rental car provider — notably CONVENIENT and TIMELY curbside pickup at the airport! Car interior was exceptionally clean and new-looking for a 6-year old car.

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

Max was a great host and very accommodating. He's easy to coordinate with and willing to explain anything about the Tesla. Renting the Tesla convinced me to get one and made family and friends interested in getting one as well. Overall, great experience and I do plan on doing this again next time I'm in San Diego. Thanks Max.

Oleg's Model 3 is awesome. He spent 30 minutes reviewing the cars features and capabilities. Having previously driven a Model S I was somewhat familiar with features in Tesla's. His review and explanation of the Model 3 helped make the experience incredible. I would highly recommend renting Oleg's Model 3 and will do so the next time I am in San Diego.

I had the time of my life driving Reuben's 2014 Porsche Bosxter S around San Diego and the surrounding area. The car is beautiful and Reuben was very easy to work with. He was quick to respond to messages and was willing to meet me before 6am to return the car before my early flight out. I would absolutely rent from him again.
Ethan S. - March 18, 2019
Hyundai Accent 2017
Our first time using Turo and having many options from Mina made it extremely convenient. After booking we looked to Mina for some guidance without any response. While it took a while to navigate the app (like getting further instructions from the owner), we realized extremely detailed instructions where there after the confirmed booking. The car was not far from the terminal and our kids were able to walk the distance safely. Will definitely try to use Mina’s cars if in the San Diego area.
Alice H. - March 22, 2019
Chevrolet Camaro 2012
Would definitely recommend! Really fun car perfect for San Diego and Rhett couldn’t have been more accommodating.

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.
