My first time using Turo and it was great! The van was as nice as advertised, Bishoy helped make pickup and drop off very convenient, and we hope to rent her van again on our next trip to San Diego.

Bryan was absolutely awesome! Everything went smooth, he went the extra mile to make sure our trip was delightful. Would definitely recommend and use again when in san Diego

I had an amazing trip to San Diego thanks to Ly’s van. Just awesome experience and the van was really comfortable for my needs. I will absolutely use her van again next time I come back to San Diego. Excellent communication. You can go wrong renting from Ly!!!

Mel was great. The Van was as advertised, and worked well for our group of 8. I would rent Mel’s van again upon return to San Diego.
William P. - October 13, 2018
Toyota Sienna 2013
Communication was excellent from the start. Instructions were clear and had no issues getting into the van. Made our trip to San Diego a breeze-not having to load kids onto a rental car shuttle and simply walking across the street made the process so much smoother. Would definitely use Ratchai and Turo again.

Thanks for everything! Even tho there was only 4 of us! We love the ease and communication, we will use Penny again if we ever come back to San Diego!

This was our first time using Turo, so we weren’t sure what to expect. Seth’s vehicle was absolutely amazing! It made our trip to San Diego even more special with having the convenience to drive around without needing uber and the room to fit the whole family along with all our luggage! Definitely recommend this to anybody in the San Diego area. Seth noticed our flight was coming in early and made the van available earlier.

Easy and smooth pick up and drop off. Super convenient to San Diego airport. Van is older as description states but was nice to have a full size van. Will def rent again if in the area. Thank you

Toyota Sienna 2013
Really easy to use - host communicates quickly and thoroughly over Turo messaging function. Only ‘downside’ is the car is located in a parking lot about a 15 minute walk away from the airport but that’s really not that big of a deal. You can enjoy the beautiful San Diego weather. Would definitely rent from him again in the future! Highly recommend.
Alan S. - October 16, 2019
Mazda MAZDA5 2009
Great car for the family trip to San Diego along with a run up to Disneyland. Plenty of space for 4 people and two kids while still being small enough to park easily and maneuver around. Fun to drive and decent gas mileage. Very easy pick up and return. About a 5 minute walk, just follow Bryan's map as Google took me the wrong way out of the airport and made it a much longer walk.
Chris M. - October 21, 2019
Kia Sedona 2018
A++++ Soooo easy! High quality 2018 car...I love the ease of pick up and drop off with just a short walk to the terminal. Will always look for one of Carlos's cars when visiting San Diego.

Beth is a kind and generous soul. She was fun to meet and the rental was perfect and went smoothly. Will definitely rent from her on our next trip to San Diego. Blessings to you Beth on your business venture and future.

Randy was great! Awesome experience renting from him. Answers his phone right away and texts back right away! He was amazing when we ran into a small little complication. Overall a wonderful experience. Will use him again if we come back to San Diego!i was scared using the Turo app for the first time. But he made our experience great.
Brittany S. - September 22, 2019

Penny si such a great host!!! Everything was perfect!! She comply all our requests like the car seats for the babies, the stroller and everything!! She made our trip very easy. For sure we will rent again with her when we come back to San Diego.
Lauraleyn M. - July 17, 2019
Honda Odyssey 2018
Excellent car (one of the few 8-seaters I was able to find). Almost new, sparkling clean, easy to drive and very comfortable. Pick-up and return were easy - location was close to a freeway, and quite central to San Diego. It was fairly easy to find, and I was able to leave my own car parked there while using the rental. Communication was clear and easy.
Joy D. - September 6, 2019
Toyota Sienna 2015
Perfect van for a family. Clean, good on gas, and spacious. Penny was responsive, friendly, and a great provider. Did charge extra for airport pickup & drop-off, but overall very satisfied and would rent again if/when we come to San Diego.
Bilegt A. - June 13, 2019

Lisa was an amazing host! She really went above and beyond to help make my family's trip to San Diego a great one. She had small gifts for my two children when we arrived and stocked the vehicle with water, snacks and other helpful items. The vehicle was immaculate. Pickups and drop offs were flawless. I cannot imagine a better host.
Brian S. - July 28, 2019

Juan’s van was in great condition and perfect for our needs while we vacationed in San Diego. Juan was easy to communicate with and pick up and drop off were seamless. We will definitely use his services again next time we are in the area!
Zac C. - March 27, 2019

The minivan was great utility, but the real gem is the optional car seats and stroller. This made traveling with 2 young kids much easier. Pickup and drop off was an easy walk from the airport. Will use Mina again when we visit San Diego.
Cody C. - March 27, 2019
Toyota Sienna 2014
First time using Turo and Bishoy was great! Van was conveniently located and easy to pick up and drop off. Quick and clear communication. He even called us at the airport to make sure we were able to find the van. If we visit San Diego again we’d definitely rent from him again!
Joseph G. - March 19, 2019

Luca was awesome and so was the VW Routan! It was spotless, smelled great, full tank of gas that got me around San Diego AND Los Angeles, he even left a gift for me at pickup! What a wonderful experience! Thank you so much Luca!

Beth was fantastic. The vehicle was exactly what she said it was. Fantastic time in San Diego. Thanks for your great vehicle and service Beth! This was our first time using Turo and could not have gotten a better ambassador. Thanks Beth. Will definitely do this again.

Lon’s van was perfect for our family with three young kids. He worked with us with no problem despite us running late for pick up. We’d definitely use his van again if we ever come back out to San Diego and recommend for anyone with a large group and/or kids!
Jessica J. - October 1, 2018
Toyota Sienna 2014
Bishoy’s minivan was great. We appreciated the ease of pick up and drop off. Highly recommend this car for families traveling to San Diego. The car was in great condition inside and out. The tv screen and videos Bishoy left were fantastic for our travel weary kids. The instructions were clear so we had no problem using it. Papers were left regarding insurance and tips for the trip. Any extra questions we had throughout the trip were promptly answered. We would definitely rent from Bishoy again.
Kathryn B. - July 15, 2019

I initially had a reservation with another rental agency when I came across Randolph's rental minivan. It was way more affordable and I didn't think twice and booked for 5 days. Randolph gave me easy instructions on where to pick up vehicle and had great communication to ensure everything was going good. I loved the fact that it saved me a headache from waiting in line at rental agency. The mini van was perfect for my mini vacation and will rent again when I return. Thanks Randolph!
Sandra A. - December 7, 2018

Originally, I had booked Ratchai's Volkswagen Atlas but Turo canceled the booking due to a safety recall on the vehicle. As disappointing as that was, Ratchai was able to promptly set me up with another of his vehicles which was a seamless transition. No extra payments or getting to know a different host. He also had car seats ready to go for my 2 children in the car when i picked it up. This made it a great experience, will definitely book with Ratchai next time we're in San Diego!
Adam V. - July 10, 2019
Dodge Grand Caravan 2011
The van did exactly what we needed it to and Ron was there waiting for us when our plan landed. We had a 40 minute delay on arrival and Ron was very accommodating and helpful through the whole process. There was a little bit of miscommunication on the drop-off location but I didn't do a good job of communicating what I thought was expected. The van was clean and exactly as listed. Would definitely rent again if looking for a van in the San Diego area.
Austin R. - August 20, 2018

If you are trying to be reasonable, then look no further. John's van delivered. Reasonably priced. Reasonably practical. The van may not have the WOW factor, but let me tell you, this vehicle made our trip very comfortable. It drove well. It has power for the giddy up and go when need to. I was very thankful and grateful to be able to rent this from John. Who is a good man too. John communicated well. Responded quickly and made our trip a great experience. Where I come from, we call people like John and his wife, "GOOD FOLKS"... I will definitely be seeing if I can rent from him again when I go back to San Diego. Highly recommended. Much thanks John..

The van was perfect for two adults and 4 lacrosse players for a weekend tournament. The mileage allotment of 200 miles work great for the event in Oceanside. May need a few more miles if the tournament was further away. Pick up and drop off worked extremely well. Will hope to use Ratchai vehicle again in the future.

Gergely S. - November 6, 2019
Mazda 5 2010
This was our first time using Turo and I would definitely use it again based on our experience. It was a bit of a walk for us coming from terminal 2 of the San Diego airport (about 15 minutes, 20 or so if you have slow walkers or short legs or both like we did!) and I’m glad I ended up turning the right direction once getting into the parking lot (if your back is to the Sheraton hotel, turn to the right side of the lot), otherwise it would have taken quite a while to find it. Once we found the car, it was easy to get the lockbox off with the code. The car was in decent condition according to my standards. Some nicks and dings on the outside and some tears in the seat fabric, but we were using car seats in the back seats so it didn’t make much of a difference to us. It drove well and was comfortable for my family of 6. Not a lot of luggage space in the Mazda 5 if that is something you need (we only brought carry-ons so we knew we wouldn’t need much - it was perfect for our purposes). For us this car was just right for our family size and needs during the trip and it was very convenient and cost effective for us.
Christine F. - May 2, 2019

Beth was a very great hostess and the customer service was top notch. Beth met us at the airport for pickup and drop off. The vehicle was very nice, clean and is a great rental for small families. We will definitely re-rent with Beth next time.

No words can describe how great this rental van and the owner was! From beginning to the end of our trip, Penny (the owner) walked us through the process, made us feel very comfortable, went above and beyond accommodating to our last minute extended time request, immediate responses, courteous, professional, clean car, so many great things. The list of all the things about their van and the owners themselves goes on! We felt so lucky to rent their van and especially their family-friendly service. They even wrote us a personal welcome note, and provided water bottles as refreshment for our arrival. We highly recommend their van and their service. Once again, thank you for making our family trip one less stressful thing to worry about!

Bishoy’s communication and flexibility made our trip exceedingly user friendly. Pick up and drop off, with a one year old/luggage was very special. Obviously, nothing beats a mini van for family and cargo! Thank you Bishoy!!!

Perfect experience! Beth was easy to get a hold of and so accommodating for our trip. I was able to fly with 3 kiddos and didn't have to lug my car seats because her van was awaiting with 3 seats ready for us! The van was top notch (we are actually now considering purchasing one). Excellent overall experience and can't say enough positive things.

Van was exactly what we needed for our family trip. Nasser was laid back and easy to work with. I would agree with other reviews that the window tinting made things difficult at times, bit it wasn't that big of a deal.

Local San Diego favorites

A taste of the islands on the mainland, San Diego is equal parts mellow getaway and bustling metropolis. Book a car and cruise the coast for some epic SoCal vistas and adventures.

  • The San Diego Zoo Safari Park

  • For those of us who can’t swing a trip to the Serengeti, the Safari Park is an exceptional local alternative. A short drive up to Escondido for the day will transport you a million miles away.

  • North Park

  • An artsy neighborhood just north of the zoo, North Park is overflowing with boutiques, cafes, bars, galleries, and the North Park Farmers Market.

  • Ocean Beach

  • No trip to SD is complete without a beach trip. Drive your Turo car down to OB, rent a board, ride some waves, and finish off the day with "the world’s best burgers" at Hodad’s.
