Zoeb accepted my last minute request and provided me his car in the best possible condition. He was very responsive on Turo chat and guided me well throughout the process. Even for the drop off, terms were very flexible. I highly recommend Zoeb’s service for someone looking for a reasonably priced minivan rental in the east bay.

Renting from ZOEB was another good Turo experience as he made sure I left with a washed car and a full tank of gas. Convenience was another factor as it is really close to my work. The van is well maintained mechanically although a automatic sliding door didn’t work and the carpet could use a shampoo cleaning. Other than that my kids had a blast with the dvd system and that’s what made this trip special. I would recommend ZOEB and I will definitely rent from him in the future.

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.

Honda Odyssey 2015
The Honda was great. Fuel consumption awesome. Really clean and low mileage. Will definitely work with Erick next time I'm in San Francisco!
Stefan C. - October 5, 2018

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)

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.

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
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
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.
Charlie C. - October 2, 2019

Perfect for our camping trip!

Great sound system! Big and comfortable car, I slept in it and carried lots of clothes and a surfboard, perfect for big trips.

Tung Sang was great! Easy pick up experience. Van was great on the road. And, seamless drop off experience. I would rent with him again.

Tung was through and easy to communicate with. The trip down the coast was great, plenty of room!

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

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
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

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.

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

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

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
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
Toyota Sienna 2019
Great experience— would rent with Tony again. Rented on short notice and had an extremely convenient pick up / return, with perfect car for our trip. We had a blast. Thank you Jenny/Tony!
Matt D. - August 26, 2019
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

This van was exactly what my family needed to escape for the weekend. Toni is the best, would definitely rent again!
Joel F. - August 19, 2019

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!

Tung’s car is very clean and spacious. He responded very fast, and is very kind. We had to extend our trip time. Tung was very fast to respond and allowed us to extend our trip.

Phil’s car was great (clean, smooth, even fun), and Phil himself was even better: flexible, responsive, and friendly. Would love to rent from him again.
Michael R. - July 29, 2019

Roomy and spacious minivan was perfect for our group of four with large bags. You can fit two bicycle bags plus luggage in the back (carefully). Pickup and drop off was smooth and communication was great!
Cameron M. - August 1, 2019

Great car. Excellent service and Tony always responded quickly and cheerfully. Wish there was a "Tony" in every town I rent. Would rent from him again.
Sajid A. - July 23, 2019

If you read the reviews, there had been a breakdown reported a while back. It happens. Scott must have really jumped all over that issue because this van was in PERFECT mechanical condition. I needed to move some paintings to Sacramento and with all the seats able to fold into the floor it gave me a ton of enclosed space. Which if you are comparing prices for moving vans et cetera you will find Scott's pricing is about half (after mileage charges) what the next closest quote was. He was efficient, easy to work with and really cared that everything worked well. Which it absolutely did. Even the AC was icy cold and stereo cd loud. What's not to like??
Maxwell G. - August 2, 2019
Dodge Grand Caravan 2013
Great ride, AC was excellent for transporting everyone on board. Great flexibility for pick up & returning the vehicle! Will rent from Sean again, thank you!
Mario C. - August 6, 2019
Toyota Sienna 2015
We had some family members coming to town and I needed a bigger vehicle to haul us around. I've been wanting to try out the premium package Toyota Sienna and was fortunate to find Brent's on Turo. We rented for 5 days and I've got to say the whole experience was great. Brent was very responsive to my questions and got in touch with me to make sure things were going ok. I would definitely rent this vehicle again the next time we need a bigger car, it is more powerful, responsive, and roomier than I thought it would be. Thanks again, Brent!

Needed to move some heavy boxes from one place to another, and this worked perfectly for a quick trip.

Shannon H. - July 25, 2019

It was very smooth working with Adam. The car was perfect for my wife and I, daughter and two grandkids. No problems at all except a needing to add air to tires. Adam communicated great with us on the drop off and pick up instructions. I would use this Adam again for renting a car.
Robert K. - August 28, 2019

Daniel’s van was great for our California trip to see many of the sites in the state. Six of us adults and older teens fit comfortably with plenty of room for luggage. Daniel was very responsive to all our messages. Highly recommend using his van.
Jeffrey E. - August 20, 2019
Chrysler Town and Country 2008
Great experience. The car was very clean with nice features and we had zero issues on a fairly long trip up the coast. Joseph's communication was excellent. He picked us up at the curb outside baggage claim and had us drop him at a gas station right outside the airport which was very convenient for us. On the way back, we wanted to take the airport shuttle from the hotel so he came to the hotel to pick up the car from us. He also took care of taking the pictures and doing the other stuff for turo so we didn't have to do anything. Overall a perfect turo experience. Thanks Joseph!

Our group had a good trip on CJ's car. In the first hour we picked up the car we had a flat tire and CJ was very responsive helping us changing the tire to the spare tire (in the meanwhile Turo's Emergency Road Assistance was unreachable for the whole night). Despite this incident, we were able to get to our destination and enjoy our trip.

We rented Rob's van for 6 weeks over the summer and picked it up/dropped it off at the Turo Valet lot at SFO. The car was clean and in great condition as advertised.

We had a great time in SF, and this is a great family car to rent! Stephen is so nice and friendly and flexible. He dropped off the car for us at the arrival area at SFO when we arrived, and picked it up at the departure area! It was so easy. We will definitely rent from him again if this vehicle is still available! Thanks Stephen! Paola

Andrew’s Sienna was perfect for our trip! We had a fantastic time, made easy and convenient by Andrew’s communication, easy pick up and drop off, and a great car for our party of four adults and two babies. We will definitely use Andrew’s service again and recommend him to anyone looking for a good time in the Bay Area!
Derek W. - August 15, 2019

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

Quang was very professional in all areas of the turo service. His vehicle was clean and in great shape. This is 100 times better than renting a car from the traditional rental companies and way less expensive.... Quang met me outside baggage claim when we arrived and off we went.... so convenient! I made a new friend in Quang... this was my first experience with turo and look forward to my next trip.... mahalo Quang! Scott
Scott M. - June 11, 2018

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

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
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 love the experience we got from renting Steve's Car. He took the extra effort to communicate with us, to make sure our kids got the right car seats for the journey. Even if this means buying new ones. Thank you Steve. We can't thank you enough in making our trip safer.

The car had some dings and scratches, but that was just perfect for us as a five-person family with a bunch of luggage. It turned out to be the perfect vehicle for exploring the bay area. Steve was super, as well.

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

The vehicle has amazing wow factor with people always wanting to take pictures. Iconic - but the 5 stars is more for the owner Rick who was great to work with during “a Scooby Mystery moment” and his response time and flexibility were spot on. Would recommend RICK and The Mystery Machine to all who like to live it up and have fun and hope to be back in SF soon to do just that.

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.

CJ’s van was exactly as described. Great value for our friends on a trip down Hwy 1 a bit! For an older model van, has a solid Bluetooth sound system that was awesome on our road trip. Would totally rent again. CANT BEAT THE VALUE!!!
