    Dear all,

    I'm getting crazy searching a solution to rent a Tesla (my best are Model S, 3 or X) in California at the end of July.

    I tried with Turo but without success, because the different pickup and return locations: from San Francisco (wherever) to Los Angeles Intl. Airport.
    Moreover, I didn't find Teslas in the classic rent-a-car company websites.

    Please help... thanks!!!

    You can rent my 2014 Tesla Model S through Turo - just put in that you are picking up and returning to my home location. I will drop the car off in San Francisco and can pick it up at the LAX airport. How long do you need it for? I would need to get $100 cash upon delivery for the cost of delivering the car.

    Thanks Bridor/Brent, this sounds great!
    I would like to book it from 29 July late morning (around 11 AM) to 3 August evening (around 7 PM).

    How do you manage to come from your home location in San Francisco and then take it back to LAX and then go back to your home for $100 only?

    Do you know if the booking via Turo benefits some warranty? For me it's an important journey and I wouldn't like to find surprises for any reason. (i.e. owner job problems).

    Thanks!

    I will be driving the car to San Francisco, so no charges to me for supercharging. I will then take a bus to Los Angeles where I have friends and will be either getting a ride or using the ShuttleToLAX service. Turo has insurance for me and screens the drivers. I do not know you and so I would like to use a third party for both of our sakes. I have a five-star rating and will not let you down.

    You will spend 15+ hours of your life driving a car from Arizona to sf and then taking a bus from sf to la all for a measly $100?

    I was trying to be fair and do something nice for a fellow Tesla owner. I am only trying to recuperate my physical costs for delivering the car. I enjoy driving the car and was looking forward to driving up the coast.

    That's super amazing of you. I am not sure if I would do this for my own brother if he asked and pay me $500. :D

    Wow, Tesla owners are nice people, @Bridor and @Sig72 are angels among us.
    What an inspiring story, that I'm going to tell at our next New England Owner meetup.

    I just check the rate for fun. For OP's dates, it is $2300 for the Large Exec Luxury Group and I don't think you could request only Tesla Model S. You could get a BMW 7 Series or Audi A8 or other ICE cars. Also have to return to the same location.. probably because it is in the exotic car group.
