Convertible rental alternatives Skip the rental counter and book the perfect convertible from a trusted Turo host

Way better than
a convertible rental

There is perhaps no more enjoyable a driving experience than cruising along with the sun on your face, your hair whipping in the open air. When you’re in a convertible, you’re basically still outside — ignore the AC dial and let mother nature cool you down during your summer road trip.

If the weather cooperates, go ahead and live a little and find a convertible rental alternative nearby on Turo for your next adventure.

Find a convertible for every road

Drop the top, grab some sunscreen, and hop in your affordable convertible rental alternative for dreamy open-air motoring.

Go full vacation mode

You deserve everything a proper vacation has to offer. Embrace the sunshine and go roofless for your next trip — ceilings are for people with worries and schedules, anyway.

Have a beach day

If you’re near a coast, set aside a weekend day to go cool off at the beach. Grab your buddies or your kids, leave the shoes at home, and go get some sand stuck in your hair (just remember to vacuum the car when you’re done).

Try before you buy

If you’re in the market for a new convertible, take an extended test drive on Turo to get the full drop top experience so you can make an informed decision on which convertible is right for you.

I would highly recommended renting from Kent. I flew into San Francisco and this location was close to the airport and so easy to pick up and drop off. Made mine and my wife’s trip to Napa that much more memorably. Thank you again

Clean fun car. Turo valet made it super simple to pick up and drop off just like a rental facility.

I went to California for the weekend with a buddy and rented Tony’s Black BMW M325i. From beginning to end, he provided a seamless experience, even through unforeseen circumstances. The communication between Tony and us was incredible. His car was clean, sounded amazing, and made our trip that much better. I will be specifically looking for Tony’s rental listings.
David Jacob - September 10, 2019
Fantastic rental. Tony could not have been a better host. Car was in great condition. We had a blast lapping the bay area with the roof down and stopping at various attractions.

Popular convertible models

Drop tops, roadsters, & spyders

Ford Mustang

Nothing says “freedom” like open-top cruising in America’s most iconic vehicle. Embrace your inner tourist and hop in a Mustang convertible to ride off into the sunset like a proper cowboy.

Chevrolet Camaro

Chevy’s pony-car-turned-sports-car is also a stylish cruiser when you lose the roof. A convertible Camaro is the perfect ride for windy backroads, scenic highways, or just puttering around town to be seen.

BMW 4 Series

The sleek, muscley BMW 4 Series is a renowned sports car and luxurious coupe. But when you opt for a 4 Series convertible, expect elevated levels of confidence and drama on the road.

BMW Z4 2009
Janet's Z4 was a wonderful car. It has great handling and is a fun car to drive. The car is a little older but is in great condition, looks wonderful, and drives firm (like a sports car should). The convertible is wonderful for driving around California. The pickup at SFO was smooth and easy using valet service. The drop off was even more smooth since it happened that Janet's husband was at the airport when we were leaving so we drove up, greeted him, grabbed our bags and walked into departures terminal. This was our first experience using Turo and we will definitely do it again based on such a wonderful experience with Turo and flawless experience with Janet and her Z4.

The pickup and drop off at the SFO valet spot was easy and the Jeep was a lot of fun to drive and got a lot of great looks. It was a great addition to the vacation. Carlo answered my questions quickly and my my first time using Turo easy. This was an all around great experience.

Ali’s Boxster was a blast. It’s beautiful, new, and clean. Very good for leisurely drives down twisty mountain roads in the area. Just be conscious of your mileage, because it’s tempting to drive this car everywhere. Weekly rate was quite reasonable. Ali was also great to work with, and he has a number of other Porsche on Turo. Would definitely rent from him again!

Davy was very communicative, friendly, and accommodating...which made the logistics for picking up and dropping the car off completely painless. The car itself is a joy to drive...I loved putting the top down to soak in the California sun, listening to the turbo charged engine purr while driving on the winding route 1. 11/10, I’ll definitely rent from Davy again.

Tung was really responsive. I made a change in the middle of the night and he accepted it right away. It didn’t occur to me when I was booking but this is an older car. It ran fine but is definitely missing the conveniences of newer cars.
Whitney C. - August 14, 2019

Tony was an excellent host. The original car I had booked ended up having some issues and Tony offered me an upgraded replacement at the same price without hesitation. The car was in excellent shape and very fun to drive. Tony's communication was prompt and he was very flexible with our schedule. I would be very happy to rent from him again!

Ernesto is a great host and was incredibly accommodating. The car is in amazing shape. If you haven’t rented a 4C before, do it now. There may be cars on Turo that are better on paper, but none that are more fun.

First time Turo user and this was an absolute blast! So appreciated the owners flexibility and quik response time. Easier than a rent-a-car! My husband loved seeing me pull up to pick him up in this car.

Porsche 911 2000
Peter’s Porsche was a blast! Perfect car for taking a trip up to Northern California where the roads really beg for a car like this. The reservation went very smooth and Peter was incredibly accommodating and communicative. There are a couple small quirks with the car but Peter explained them all during the hand off so there were no surprises during my trip. As an added bonus Peter included an extensive CD collection of rocking oldies since there is no Bluetooth or aux port on the stereo. There was plenty of room for two adults, and for short jaunts the back seat is totally serviceable. We had carry on bags (no checked luggage) and there was no trouble fitting everything in the car. I would highly recommend this car to any one looking to add a little extra fun to their vacation- it kept a smile on my face for the whole drive!
Marissa E. - August 15, 2019

This car was so much fun to drive and easy to park because it's so small. JC was so responsive and super flexible when I wanted to change my drop-off time and location at the end of my trip. The airport pick-up and drop off was really easy as well. Would totally use Turo again and would definitely rent this car again!

Porsche 911 2006
First time driving a 911 and what a great way to do so as we visited California from Toronto and took it down to Carmel as they were setting up PB for Concours. Highly recommend it. For any other gear heads, try hwy 1 from Sausalito to Stinson Beach, returning along Panormic highway. We just had our Corolla rental for that drive, and man do I wish we sprung for Nick’s 911 there as well. Thanks nick!
Sean A. - August 14, 2019

Hey completely great experience renting next Porsche. The car was a blast, and Nick was great with communication regarding being very flexible for us to pick up and drop off. He even allowed us to store the car they’re in between our two day rental.
Michael B. - August 12, 2019
Mazda MX-5 Miata 2012
Terrific experience with Mario and his Miata. Clear, responsive communicator and flexible in terms of reservation logistics. The car itself is a delight and mechanically sound, and so much fun to motor in! The power retracting hardtop provides the best of both top-down joyriding and security/protection.

Chevrolet Camaro 2014
I chose the airport pick-up/drop off but Jorge offered to drop it off at our hotel which was awesome. Since it was a physical key exchange, I was worried about the convenience of just dropping off the car. But Jorge made the drop off very smooth and easy. I sent him a message that I will be returning the car early and when I got back to the hotel, he was already there. He also pointed out the existing dents and scratches in the car and made sure we took pictures of it. The Camaro was amazing to use in our trip down to Big Sur. Jorge and his Camaro is highly recommended!
Renee C. - August 13, 2019

Aaron was super accommodating from start to finish! He dropped the car off right on time and was flexible with miles and pickup location. The car was a blast and made our trip so much better. Would definitely rent again!
Tyler A. - August 14, 2019
Porsche 718 Boxster 2017
Rented the car for a trip down to Monterey for an engagement celebration. We took the 1 down and then took skyline back. The heated and cooled comfort seats were very much appreciated. Power top was awesome. Storage space was perfect for a short trip. I loved the bark that the car has upon start up (makes me wonder about the inline 6). Malcom was really responsive and pick up and return were effortless. My only gripe is really with Turo: I could only open the driver side door via the app so I always had to get in to open the other door (not to mention the boot/trunk). Full Keyfob functionality was missed at times. Not sue if I just needed to hold it or tap unlock multiple times. Otherwise, the car was a ton of fun and quite comfortable once on the road! Thanks for an awesome experience.

The Mini Cooper S Roadster was a blast to drive with the top down. It is small, quick, and super cute. The trunk was bigger than expected and fit our bags perfectly. Easy pick up and return through the Turo Valet.

Trevor was extremely communicative and accommodating. He is a great host, and he has an awesome car. The Viper is a hoot to drive, and appreciate him for letting others experience a car unlike any other. Was surprised how solid these 1st generation Vipers are, and while it has quirks and qualms, it is a high performance car from the 90s and was nothing unexpected. If you are in the San Francisco area for a day or two, I highly recommend the Viper for some highway cruising or open country roads.

Porsche 911 2006
5 stars simply for making this otherwise unattainable (to me at least) car available for a convenient rental. Had a great time driving it down the coast with the engine singing behind me. The convertible top works great as do the power windows. Bluetooth also worked and there were no mechanical issues, it was running strong. This is not a new car, however, so be prepared for some dents, scratches, wheel curb rash, and interior wear. As well as some electrical bugs such as the heated seats not working (big bummer) and the power mirrors getting stuck in the down position every time you unlock the car with the remote (annoying and potentially dangerous). Be advised, I was charged for not filling the tank all the way. It kept clicking and stopping and I didn't want to spill gas everywhere, so I stopped filling it but apparently there were still 2 gallons to go. Nick said it sometimes stops short if you leave it on auto but I was doing it manually. Would have been nice to have this quirk mentioned in the description, and I would have tried to jam those 2 gallons in the tank. I didn't mind paying the cost but it left a bad taste in my mouth after an otherwise great experience. The 5 stars still remain though. I will remember this drive for some time. Thanks again, Nick!
