Great car and great experience saving an hour at the SFO rental counter.

Javier was understanding of my flight delays, and always responded to my messages. Terminal side pickup at SFO was very convenient. Vehicle was clean and as described, and I'd rent again.

Edward was very helpful, car was a great, and the TURO pickup/dropoff at sfo was super convenient.

Tony was an outstanding host. He was accommodating to flight delays and changes. The car was in outstanding condition and easy to pickup at the SFO hourly parking lot. Return was just as seamless. Would definitely repeat!

WAY faster than airport rental counter AND 60% less than Hertz' quote for their cheapest car. even AFTER buying additional insurance. HIGHLY recommend!!!

Super easy pickup at Turo’s SFO lot, very convenient. Porsche Boxster did not disappoint either. First Turo experience was very positive overall, I’d rent from Edwin any time.

Porsche Boxster 2014
3 reasons to choose Turo/Ken: 1) WAY less time to checkout than an airport rental / off site rental. 2) Hard to find exotic car! 3) Worked within our trip parameters (distance) to make it happen!

Jimmy
BMW 3 Series 2006
Great vehicle! For those who are concerned about no AUX input, there is an FM transmitter that plugs into the cigarette lighter and then to the headphone jack of your music player. Pickup at SFO was via Lyft and we dropped it off at the Aloft, which provides a free shuttle to the terminal. This is a perfect napa weekend car!

First time using Turo. Will definitely use it again. Process was easier than using on site airport car rental.

When an issue occurred which neither Lucian nor I could have anticipated, his helpfulness, trust and flexibility meant it was resolved with minimal impact. The car is of course fun, practical and quick. Ten years ago it was a pipe dream to rent this sort of vehicle (or anything manual) when travelling in the US, but gone are the days of hearing "Please hold on. Please set luggage cart brake to on." while trundling toward the SFO rental facility dreading what they'll have in the carpark.

Chris
Porsche 718 Boxster 2017
Ali was great with all communication before, during and after the trip. First time using Turo was so easy with pickup at SFO and Turo lot down the street. The 718 was the perfect car for our first trip to Napa. You can't go wrong with a Porsche but this new 718 was nicer than any Boxster I have driven. Amazing car and service! Thanks Ali

Jeff made my first Turo experience awesome. I rent cars frequently from big rental companies and this experience was far superior. The car was in great shape and it was a much faster (and cheaper) way to to rent than waiting in lines at the airport rental counters. I’m a car guy so it’s nice know what your going to get.
Jason M. - March 26, 2018
Ben
Tesla Model S 2013
Honestly the best experience I have had with a car rental of any type. As someone who is used to the standard "Airport/Rental Car" process. This was a breath of fresh air. Not only will I use Turo again for other trips around the country, next time I Head to SFO I will seek Dan out specifically for his premium level of service. Thanks for a great Trip!

Amazing rental experience and awesome owner!!! Super flexible and awesome communication. Car was also super cool and looked so clean!!

Craig
Porsche Cayman 2007
The Cayman S was pretty much how I imagined it; quick, balanced, aggressive, and impossible to keep from smiling while you’re behind the wheel. Brandon was easy to work with, and the Turo valet at SF airport was as convenient as the big airport rental companies. I’d rent this car again in a heartbeat.

Miguel could not have provided a better experience. More convenient than a typical rental and a much better car. Will definitely use again if the opportunity presents itself.

True airport pickup is an amazing perk, and Kent was very easy to work with. Will rent again.

Jack
Volkswagen GTI 2008
Great first-time experience with Turo, and Populous did not disappoint. Communication was easy and the GTI was fun to drive, if a little noisy. (It is a sport vehicle with 125k miles on it, after all.) The car was an 'airport' rental and the Turo Valet Lot option worked out just fine. (Uber to the off-site lot, pick up the car, return it to the lot, and get a free ride back to the airport.) I will definitely use Turo again, and wouldn't hesitate to use Populous again, should my travels bring back to the San Francisco area.

Jean
Porsche 911 2015
This was a great experience. The pickup/return at SFO with Turo Valet service was great. They take meticulous pictures and videos of the car on pickup and dropoff. Jeremy was a pleasure to work with and his 911 is in excellent condition.
Jean S. - October 10, 2017
Sean
Mazda MX-5 Miata 2016
We had an awesome trip with this great looking and even better driving car (we nicknamed him Bruce). The owner communicated very well throughout the whole process and pickup/dropoff at SFO Turo valet made for a stress free trip. The car was spotless and so much fun to drive. We would definitely rent Bruce again!
Sean M. - July 10, 2018
Adrian
Volkswagen GTI 2015
Michael's GTI was a blast as my first ever Turo rental. Great on gas, comes with all the amenities, great to thrash around the corners, yet in a small package that is easy to park! The unlimited mileage offered was the cherry on top for me. Michael was very punctual with communication before and during my time with his car, I would happily recommend anyone in the Bay to rent his GTI if you want a fun rental car!
Adrian M. - March 10, 2019
Dominic

I never used turo before but I can say I'm never using another car rental place when there are people like JC. Amazing first experience couldn't have been easier

Keith
Tesla Model S 2013
Perfect rental with Dan in his fantastic Tesla. The ideal car to rent when traveling throughout the Bay Area. Simple pick up and drop off (so much better than rental companies at SFO). Great communication. Will rent again next time I’m in SF.
Keith C. - February 9, 2019
Jeff
Hyundai Accent 2016
Great car, easy pickup very close to SFO, easier than the shuttle to rental car center. Lance communicated will abd was very accommodating when I requested ahead of time to extend the rental by 2 hours. This was my first time renting from Turo, and thanks to Lance, it won't be the last.
Jeff S. - February 5, 2019
Josh
Jaguar F-TYPE 2014
This was my first rental with Turo, and the experience was fantastic. Kent had great communication, and the professionalism of the Turo Valet employees was better than most standard rental companies. Kent was flexible with pickup and drop off time, and free airport pickup was appreciated. 5 stars!

Thank you so much - it was a great service for a very reasonable price (especially as compared to the standard airport car rental services) and Sachin is a great communicator! Will use Turo again and will try to rent Sachin's car!

Yuting

A very friendly and professional owner. We arrived at the airport and the pickup place is just a short ride away. The communication before, during and after the rental was excellent. Dan really knows his car and was happy to share his expertise with us. Overall we had good experience with this rental.
Yuting K. - February 9, 2019
Naveed

I had a great experience with this rental! Michael was very quick to answer all of my questions and make the entire process very easy. The car was fun and easy to drive and didn’t give me any issues. Would definitely rent again from him!

Adrian
Honda Accord 2009
Nick's Accord was all I needed for my last day in the Bay Area: a reliable, comfortable sedan that conservatively sipped fuel. Nick was very quick to respond upon my request to return the car earlier and sent reminders of his rental guidelines. I would happily rent Nick's Accord again if I needed a reliable daily for the day.
Adrian M. - March 10, 2019
Patrick
Tesla Model S 2015
Amazing car, incredibly simple, concise, and efficient service. John was quick to respond when needed, and extremely informative. Turo is my new favorite app, I see no reason to use a normal rental service again. And John made things so easy, I will happily rent from him again! Thank you bud!
Patrick F. - February 26, 2019
Jonathan
Tesla Model S 2014
Amazing car. Well taken care of. And Steffen was very easy to rent from. From what I can tell, it's the best value Tesla in the area, with the most reasonable rental guidelines. Especially with generous mileage limits. Would rent again if back in the Bay area.
Jonathan T. - March 14, 2019
Andre
Nissan 370Z 2010
Pick up is not as convenient as airport pickup, but don't let that discourage you from renting. Would use again.

Rebeca was super punctual with great communication which made airport pickup / drop-off right at my terminal super easy. The car was clean and ran well. Would rent again.

Kendra
Toyota Yaris 2015
My first time using turo and I am very impressed!! Sachin's car was perfect for San Francisco! We wanted something small so we could find parking and not burn a ton of gas in traffic. Our rental was perfect!! The car itself ran great. Heat and air worked, good tires, New windshield wiper etc. It rained for 3 of the 5 days we had the car and we didn't slip or slide at all. 5 days of driving all around and we used one $35 tank of gas. Also pick up and drop off was great! Uber to the turo lot (turo reimburses for the Uber) and turo takes you back to the airport when you drop off. Super easy! We would definitely rent this car again!

Everything went super smoothly with this rental: We got picked up from the airport to the rental place (which is 5min from SFO), and upon return, we got a ride back to the airport for free. I highly recommend working with Sean! I will rent from him again!

Great rental. Easy pickup and drop at Turo Valet lot. They take before and after pictures to document. Great communication with Jeff as our incoming flight was delayed a few hours. Car clean but seats do have some old staining. Great experience for first Turo rental. Just what we needed to get around Santa Clara county.
Laurie B. - January 3, 2019
Joseph
Infiniti Q50 2014
Nice clean car that’s fun to drive. Justin was very good about communicating. Only knock on the rental was having to pick it up at the Turo Valet instead of at the terminal, but that was made known to me prior to confirming the rental. Overall a good experience!
Joseph O. - December 29, 2018
Kristine

Andrew’s car was a great rental experience. Will do it all over again! I saved so much on gas on this Prius car. Thank u Andrew! :-) His drop off location is only 10mins away from SFO. He is such a wonderful owner.

Michael
BMW 1 Series 2008
It was my first time using Turo, and I'm glad I did. Steve's BMW 128i made my trip much more enjoyable driving a fun stick-shift car rather than some basic economy rental car. I'll definitely be using this again when I fly through SFO.
Michael T. - February 4, 2019
Omoro
Toyota Prius 2015
This is my first experience with Turo and it was pretty seamless. Basil was highly responsive, professional, transparent and flexible. I took the Toyota Prius that I rented to a yoga retreat in a rural part of northern California and I got mud on the car mats due for the insane rain the region has been experiencing . I offered to pay the $40 cleaning fee but he was very flexible and said it was fine. Turo definitely beats going to a traditional car rental service. I’ll definitely try the service again and highly recommend renting any of basil’s fleet of cars available near the SFO airport.
Omoro O. - January 21, 2019
Michael
Tesla Model 3 2017
Han was a very accommodating host. Turo employees near SFO hold him in high regard as well. The Model 3 was a fantastic car to experience, and by itself made our trip exciting. It draws attention even though there are lots of 3’s around as it has some special touches for aesthetics. This car was a great value and we both really appreciate Han offering it on Turo!
Michael B. - March 1, 2019
Yuriy
BMW 4 Series 2018
Ashwin made the whole experience as seamless as possible! He showed up to drop the car off at SFO right on schedule, and was there to pick it up upon my departure. Super clear communication surrounding the entire booking. 10/10, would recommend.

Austin
Tesla Model 3 2018
Daniels Tesla Model 3 is unreal. I felt like I was in a space ship. Driving it around the city may have been the best part of my trip to San Fran. The pick up and drop off at the turo valet was very convenient when flying in and out of SFO, especially for a first time Turo user like myself. The whole Turo process is just amazing. I will never rent a car from another company again! The ability to choose from luxury vehicles for a reasonable price and the ease of picking up and dropping of the vehicle is unlike any other. I give Daniel, his Tesla Model 3, and Turo, 10 out of 5 stars!
Austin O. - March 12, 2019
Thomas
Tesla Model 3 2018
Great car, great service bei TURO. Unfortunatly i didn't meet the owner, because it's always fun to chat with other Tesla owners. But, the TURO service at the SFO valet parking was just perfect! They took all the pictures, refunded the Uber ride and 5 minutes latzer I was on the road in the best car ever build!

Airport pickup was a bit of a hassle. But eventually got around to it. Model 3 was picked up clean with a full charge. Kaushik is a very easygoing, friendly gentleman. Drop off was easy and he provided a ride to my terminal.

Tesla Model 3 2018
I normally rent with national car rental agencies, and this was my first experience using Turo, so I wasn't sure what to expect. I was very impressed. I asked Daniel quite a few questions before booking and they were answered promptly. Booking was very easy. The car was as described, and it was amazing to drive a Tesla Model 3, rather than the rental cars I normally get. Charging the car during my trip with the Tesla superchargers around the Bay area was super easy, and quite fast. It was clean inside and out when I picked it up. I went for the extra paid options which meant I could literally return the car without having to clean the car or charge it fully, that saved me a lot of time on the day of return. Pick up and return at the Turo Valet lot was easy with one exception. When I picked it up, the Turo agent told me they had taken photos of the car inside and out, and emailed me them on the spot. When I went out to the car, I noticed kerbing damage to two of the wheels, and those wheels had not been photographed by the Turo agent during the inspection. They took photographs, said apologised, but I felt it was very sloppy of them to miss those two wheels in the first place. This is not the fault of Daniel who owns the car, but of the Turo agents at the lot. As a customer, I should have to double check that they have done the inspection properly.
