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!
Omar - August 9, 2018
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!

Zoeb is very professional and prompt with his customers. Would definitely rent from again.
YINGAO - June 2, 2019
Zoeb was awesome. Every silly question I had he answered. The BMW was so smooth and luxurious and the price I paid compared to any other rental agency made it an easy choice. If you are looking for a rental when you're out west coast (as someone who is very picky) Zoeb makes it an easy decision.

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.

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.

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.

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!

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.

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!

For those looking for an amazing EV rental in the Bay Area, look no further than Kaushik’s Model 3! This was amongst the best Turo experiences I’ve had. Kaushik was at the airport to pick me up from the arrivals area on time to the dot. So for those looking for a rental experience that works with a very busy business schedule, this is perfect. The car was in perfect condition, and in fact it always amazes me when owners such as Kaushik keep a vehicle cleaner than a major rental car company. Kaushik was available for any questions I had at anytime and his responses were very immediate. On arranging the return, he was also very flexible and put the renter’s convenience before his. I don’t even think I have to mention cool factor... since what’s cooler than a long range feature packed (AP included!) Model 3 in the Bay Area. The vehicle’s size is perfect for any trip and with the abundance of charging options, it really is the perfect rental car! Thanks Kaushik for any awesome experience and look forward to renting from you again!

Jeff was great! I really appreciate how consistent and informative Jeff was throughout this rental process. Car was clean and in good condition! Perfect from driving around the peninsula. One thing to note is that the back left passenger door doesn’t respond to the key fob, so make sure that it is locked at all times!

This was my first time renting a car from something other than the major rental companies. It went very well right from the easy sign up, to delivery, to drop off. Charlie was great, the whole process was great, I will do it again, and will recommend him to all going to San Francisco.

5 stars all-around for this car rental experience. James came through for me when my flight itinerary got post-poned. He was easy to get a hold of, willing to work with me, punctual, flexible, and hooked me up with a really nice car. Will definitely be working with James again next time I am in SF.

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.

The response rate of Nazir is so quick because he had automated messages, otherwise it does sometimes take a while for him to respond. The car was old (which we knew), but we also had issues with the trunk lock from the beginning. Pick up and return from sfo airport went smoothly. Nazir was also very nice with arranging car seats for our kids which we've ordered from Amazon. Altogether it was an positive experience :).

Umit’s car was easy to pick up/drop off and instructions were clear. Would rent again! Umit is also easy to reach and communicate with as well. I originally booked a dfferent car, but it needed to be fixed a few days before my rental date and wasn’t going to be ready in time, so he recommended me another one of his cars and was very accommodating. Thanks for everything!

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!

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.

Jeff

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.

Clark picked us up right when we arrived at SFO, it was about 10min to go back to his place and from there we were off to cruise Wine Country with the top down. The car was in great condition, and everything worked exactly as it should. There’s an AUX cord for playing music, so if you have a newer iPhone, you’ll need a Lightning adapter. Drop off was also very easy. We dropped the car off at his house and he dropped us off at our terminal. A+ service.

Rolando's Honda accord was just perfect for us, really spacious, comfortable to drive and plenty of power, upon collection from SFO turo Valet, the car was absolutely spotless. I couldn't recommend it enough, Rolando had grey communication, always quick to respond and very helpful

Zachary
Tesla Model 3 2018
We rented Dan’s Model 3 in order to experience the vehicle before it is released in Australia. By far the coolest car we have ever driven! We were able to travel to and from Yosemite National Park from San Francisco and the supercharger network was excellent. Dan helped point us in the direction of some chargers in Yosemite Valley as well. Dan went out of his way to organise delivery of the car himself following our late arrival into SFO. The return at the Turo lot was convenient and quick. 5/5 - would definitely rent again. Going back to our usual daily driver will be tough.

Absolutely stunning and thrilling car. Ali was very responsive and accommodating which made pick up and drop off a breeze. My gf and I drove the car from SFO to Napa Valley and I must say, we had the most memorable ride ever in the Boxter. We were worried that our carryons wouldn’t fit in this car but we were wrong. Plenty of storage space in the front trunk. We were able to fit two carryon suitcases and two backpacks plus some. Next time, we will try out the 911! Thanks again!

Matt
Alfa Romeo 4C 2016
I booked Ken's Alfa Romeo 4C for a quick day trip down the coast, and I couldn't think of a more thrilling car for the jaunt. Ken was a pleasure to interact with, and the car was easy to pick up and drop off at the SFO Turo lot. The car itself is all about the driving experience, and delivers a visceral experience of sound, confidence and attention from onlookers that is unlike any other car I've driven. Would highly recommend renting from Ken, and especially this fine road car.

I used Turo for the first time to borrow John's sweet Tesla and couldn't have been more impressed. The ease of pickup and drop off, the staff at Turo and excellent communication throughout made it a great trip. And the Autopilot feature made driving from SFO to Monterey and beyond a breeze. Thanks for a wonderful experience. Turo customer for life!

The Prius was great, and Dan was always incredibly helpful, friendly, and professional. It was especially great to get picked up and dropped off at SFO (Dan even tracked my flight to make sure he’d be on time) - by far my most convenient car rental experience (via Turo or a traditional rental place).

I have been renting from Turo for quite a while and have dealt with very decent people while renting their cars, but renting from Vahram has been by far the best Turo experiences i have ever had! Wether its the convenience or the flexibility or the way he welcomed me and my wife upon our arrival to SFO! He just did an absolutely extraordinary job and will always look to rent off of him when visiting san francisco! Car was clean and in a excellent condition! Thank you Vahram for giving us the best car rental experience!

GREAT HOST! I originally rented this Model 3 to see if I wanted to purchase a Model 3 myself. Upon pickup at the Turo lot in SFO I was notified that due to a cracked windshield my car was not available... but Shubhang had upgraded me to a bright red Long Range Dual Motor Model 3... which was a pleasant surprise to say the least! What a great car, and great communication from Shubhang. This was the best car rental experience I’ve ever had. Thanks again!!!

First time using Turo and everything was great. The car was awesome, lots of fun great for cruising around Napa valley with the top down! Clean in great condition. Turo is by far a better experience than renting from one of the large rent a car companies. Easy, convenient, get a Lyft to the valet and that was reimbursed too! And a free ride back to the airport.
