Popular minivan models

Toyota Sienna

The Toyota Sienna is the go-to minivan for families across the US. It’s got Toyota reliability and plenty of room, and top trims can be downright luxurious.

Honda Odyssey

With a big group, you can’t go wrong with a Honda Odyssey. These days, the Odyssey is stuffed to the gills with the latest safety features and infotainment gadgets.

Dodge Grand Caravan

Like all good minivans, the Dodge Grand Caravan can carry up to eight people. But unlike most other minivans, both rows of rear seats fold neatly into the floor, transforming the Grand Caravan into a cargo van.

The Honda was great. Fuel consumption awesome. Really clean and low mileage. Will definitely work with Erick next time I'm in San Francisco!

Dependable option for the economy use case. I drove it from San Francisco to Yosemite and back to go for a hike. Air conditioning works well when needed. Functional.

Had a great first experience with Turo in San Francisco. Maira was delightful to work with and made my first Turo rental experience very pleasant. Maira was very accommodating and delivered the van to me at SFO. I had arranged for a remote pickup in the city previously. Would definitely recommend Maira. (Jacob)

Toyota Sienna 2007
Andrew’s Toyota Sienna was perfect for our group trip. Roomy, clean and gas efficient. Spent 5 days in San Francisco and only refilled once. The phone holder and phone charger in the car were a plus. Andrew was also on time to pick us up and to return. I would definitely rent from Andrew again!

Volkswagen Routan 2012
Sukru’s 2012 Routan is the best vehicles for a family of 5 with luggage. We traveled around 3k miles from San Francisco to San Diego for 2 months. We camped in various state and national parks campgrounds, and we enjoyed the beautiful California coastline, surrounded by surfers and enjoying the relaxing atmosphere of California. And having a reliable vehicle that never lets you down was a great gift. We will remember this trip forever and we definitely recommend this van to Europeans as it will fit all your travel needs. Sukru is also very professional and always quick to answer any question we had.

Toyota Sienna 2017
The experience with Phil was excellent! Very easy to reach via the messaging or cell phone. He was prompt and polite and the car itself was great. No issues. Because it was my first time using Turo, we did curbside pick-up when we got to San Francisco and the valet lot on our return. Now that I know how easy the valet lot is, I wouldn’t need to use curbside next time. Very slick!
Kelly S. - August 16, 2018
Jose
Honda Odyssey 2005
Car was spacious, clean, and surprisingly easy and fun to drive. The engine is great, it easily handled going up hills with no problem. I was pleasantly surprised the car had a back up camera with made parking in San Francisco so much easier. Sang also included cables and USB ports in the car which were a lifesaver when I was running low on battery and needed my phone gps on.(He also included a phone mount) My whole experience was great would recommend.
Jose M. - August 16, 2018
Vance
Mazda MAZDA5 2010
This is a big and nimble car. The back driver side door is a little sticky to open at times but overall a good cheap grocery getter. Would rent again!

Paul
Toyota Sienna 2017
Especially when you’re traveling with kids, nothing beats a minivan. Harminder’s Sienna was perfect, pick up and drop off was a breeze, and communication was superb. We will definitely be working with him again when we return to the Bay Area.

Dodge Grand Caravan 2007
It was super simple to book from CJ, and he had a lot of very good information ready for checkin all the way from pickup to return. He's also very responsive with messages and all the questions I had. The van is old, but amazing for moving and still drives well. We'll definitely be booking it many more times in the future!

Chandra
Dodge Grand Caravan 2017
Adam was absolutely amazing. He worked with us on the details of our arrival and departure and went above and beyond to make everything as easy as possible for us given that we were traveling with two small children and a lot of stuff. The car was impeccably clean, and perfect for our baby and toddler. I can’t recommend Adam or this vehicle enough!

Lance has a great minivan that is perfect for a local trip with 7 people and gear. You can't get this type of car from any of the rental car services. It's a deal and the minivan was great.
Sam L. - July 28, 2018
Gavin
Honda Odyssey 2014
Honda Odyssey works great for a family vacation of 8. Many minivans on Turo are actually 7 seaters but Steve’s is an 8 seater. Communication was clear and Steve was flexible with changing the return location and even gave me a ride home! I’d definitely rent again if I ever have a family trip to California.
Gavin K. - October 28, 2018
Adam
Dodge Caravan 2005
Easy process. The minivan is as stated on the ad, it’s old, but it works and it’s cheap. Scott was a good communicator throughout the rental period.

Tatiana
Dodge Grand Caravan 2007
This was my first time renting a car on Turo and CJ made it very easy and kept me well-informed on the pickup process. Very communicative and kind. The van has definitely seen plenty of adventure and it was able to take us on ours, so that was great!
Tatiana F. - September 14, 2019
Charlie
Toyota Sienna 2017
Leisure. This is a lovely car. We had six adults, some tall, and traveled several hundred miles and we were all very comfortable. There was also room for all of our luggage. The car was spotless and I would rent it again in a moment. Tony bent over backwards to make the pick-up and drop-off work well.

Toyota Sienna 2018
I used Aaron's van take six 17 year olds to Santa Cruz for an overnight birthday celebration. It went off without a hitch. Aaron always got back to me immediately when planning the pick up, the van was spotless (and didn't smell like cheap air freshener), and the seats were incredibly comfortable. The experience was flawless!
Susan W. - November 3, 2019
Bryan
Toyota Sienna 2013
Easy host, nice car, I will rent from the host in the near future. Over all very easy to deal with, like the car and is fully loaded. For the price it def has a competitive edge over the Corp rentals. Thank you

Super easy rental. Julio was communicative, and the car drove great. Perfect for our trip!
Ellery C. - September 4, 2018
Andrew
Chrysler Town and Country 2005
Scott's minivan is a mostly automated service. So you will be picking up and dropping off the car just through communication via text. This is different than what I was used to, but very convenient. Scott is flexible and the van is great for trips with lots of people or lots of stuff. Highly recommend it!
Andrew B. - September 17, 2018
Karin
Dodge Caravan 2005
CJ was very responsive during the whole day which made our first trip with Turo great. The van was a great deal for what it was worth and would definitely rent again. The only thing was the van’s trunk door sometimes doesn’t stay up and one time fell on my head so just have to be a bit careful.
Karin D. - December 11, 2018

I love when transportation is not an issue during vacation. Thanks to Joseph the drop off and pickup was straightforward. Lovely trip!

We were so grateful to rent Harminder’s Toyota Sienna. It was perfect for our trip and fit all 8 of us easily and comfortably. Harminder was very responsive. Thanks so much for everything, Harminder!

Rajesh
Dodge Grand Caravan 2013
Van was clean. Sean came to airport to give us Van. I dropped him back to his home. Van worked well, it was easy renting, communicating with Sean. While returning van, I picked him from his home and he drove us to airport. Only thing I wish was that there shouldn't have been mandatory cleaning fee of $40. I didn't thought about that as its not part of initial booking. I thought we gave van back not that bad. Overall it was nice first Turo experience. Sean is nice, happy person. May rent from him again on my next SFO trip.
Rajesh P. - August 14, 2019

Ben was great to work with and the van was in amazing condition. I especially appreciated the car’s window shades, automatic sliding doors, and highly adjustable driver seat position.

Ngoc
Toyota Sienna 2017
Pickup and dropoff was extremely easy. We used it for a weekend trip for 7 people and it was very easy to drive and super comfortable for all of us. Tony was also very helpful and responsive to any questions I had. Would definitely rent this again!

Len
Honda Odyssey 2015
Erick's Odyssey was great for our group of five + luggage to get around town for our conference. Erick was great to work with, communicated well, and was quick to approve a slight change to our schedule when our flight was pushed back 1/2 an hour. I'd borrow his van again next time we're out at SFO.
Len K. - October 7, 2019
Ijeoma Genevieve
Dodge Grand Caravan 2013
Great SUV (rides really well for a car that size). Sean was also very good with responses to questions I posed, prior to the pick up and a day before drop off. Additionally, the Rental was reasonably priced, and had sufficient trunk space for several luggages.
Ijeoma Genevieve M. - July 29, 2019
Anders Aktor
Honda Odyssey 2011
Sugianto was a great host who was very gracious. I rented his Honda Odyssey for just under a month, and had permanent parking in a very, very tight space. As such the car got some noticeable scratches and discolorations, but Sugianto was very gracious about it (and I have insurance). A great car for family trips. The only (slight) downside is that the Tire Pressure Monitoring System light was on when I got the car, but I never felt or noticed anything about the tires.
Anders Aktor L. - August 2, 2019
Erica
Honda Odyssey 2006
This was a great van for a family weekend away. It was comfortable, had room for all of our stuff, and was a breeze to drive. Finding parking at the end of the trip was a pain, but ultimately, we would rent this van again.
Erica B. - August 3, 2019
Macklan
Ford Transit Connect 2012
Easy pickup and return, (unfortunately not on my end) but Toni was very nice about it. The van had more room than I thought and was perfect for moving things around town. Great rental.
Macklan C. - August 5, 2019
Baron
Honda Odyssey 2006
Great 1st trip for me on Turo. The van was in good condition for it's mileage and was mechanically in good shape. Slightly dirty vehicle when I first picked it up but that was due to the previous renter being late, according to the owner. Easy pickup and drop off in the city, would rent again. A 1000+ mile trip that went really well! Thank you.
Baron S. - July 10, 2019
Jamie

Matt
Dodge Caravan 2005
The original car I booked wasn’t available at the last minute, but Scott had an equivalent replacement ready to go right away! The switch over was easy, and the new car (Town & Country) was massive and ran smoothly. It’s on the older side and has seen some heavy use, but still felt reliable enough! This van was critical for moving ourselves and SO much stuff to and from a DIY wedding, and I’d definitely use Scott’s car again for this sort of thing.
Matt N. - September 9, 2019

Basil is seriously the most easy going guy on the planet! He made renting his van super easy...van itself in perfect shape very easy to drive worked great. We hit a few snags on our trip (of our own making) and Basil just handled it no problem. Also we had to make a mad dash to the airport and Basil was kind enough to allow us to pick him up 10mins from SFO and drop us off himself so we could make our flight...can’t thank him enough for making our first experience with Turo a great one!

Janna
Volkswagen Routan 2010
This was my first time working with Turo and obviously with Hardik. It was a no hassle process reserving the car, confirming our trip, and receiving the car for our two week trip in the SF area. Returning the car was also a very flexible process, which we really appreciated because we ran into unexpected traffic in Sacramento, and were short on time returning to the SF airport. The car was clean and spacious enough for our family of 3 young children. As it is already difficult traveling with three young ones, it was reassuring to know we had such a comfortable and reliable car to get us around. Of all the reservations we made and managed for our big 2 week trip, this reservation was the simplest and most straight-forward. Hardik was professional, responsive and available to reply to all questions and concerns (big and small). I wouldn't hesitate to rent from him again.

The pick up and return were a breeze. We had others in our party who rented cars through traditional services were delayed by an hour and a half. Rob was super easy to work with and flexible as our trip evolved. When an issue came up with the car, he responded immediately and offered several options to make sure we were comfortable.

Everything about the rental went to plan. Easy booking, airport pick up and drop off was fine. Car was as described and drove well. The owner himself was a man of few words at pick up / return but has a associate who drove to and from the airport and was very friendly.
Andrew H. - October 19, 2018

This was the perfect minivan to run a few errands and for picking-up some larger items with the easy fold-flat seats in the back that provide lots of room. It was a tidy and clean car with good excellent communication from the owner through the entire process. Will rent from again!
William F. - December 10, 2018
Alexander
Honda Odyssey 2005
Needed to rent a van to transport 7 of us total for a dinner trip to San Jose. Car was good and convenient as we lived right next to where this van was located. Communication wasn't an issue and he unlocked/locked the car quick. The van does smell a little funny but it was ok for the same day trip. Also going past 65 mph the steering wheel shakes. Otherwise besides those two things nothing else was wrong. The price was right and I would rent again in the future for this type of situation of mine as it's so convenient. Thanks!!!
Alexander D. - October 2, 2018
Chris
Toyota Sienna 2008
Everything went fine. Car is what you'd expect from a 2008 rental, but the value is great. Would recommend.

Ted

C.J. is an ideal renter. There was some difficulty in finding parking upon the return and C.J. worked very hard with me to help find a spot while he was away on travel. I look forward to renting from him again in the future.
Ted M. - January 9, 2019
