Top rated cars in Honolulu, HI
Take a deep breath and relax into your island life. The capital city of Hawaii is a place with plenty to do, but nobody is out to do it in a hurry.
So take your time exploring the shops of the Ala Moana Center, historic landmarks, and cultural sites of the city like Iolani Palace, but when you’re over the rush hour traffic in town, make sure to head out and revel in the natural beauty, perfect beaches, and endless outdoor activities Oahu Island has in store.
Nobody goes to Hawaii to hang around inside all day, and the best activities in Honolulu take you out into the abundance of natural beauty.
The best views of Waikiki, Honolulu, and all of Oahu are all yours when you do the 1.6-mile climb to the top of this dormant volcano. Ambitious hikers might even catch a glorious sunrise.
This bustling Honolulu area is famous for a reason: a beautiful famous beach, resorts, hula shows, surf lessons, ABC stores, fireworks — everything a tourist could ask for in one fell swoop.
For the ultimate snorkel experience, steer your car to the south end of the city, and swim with a wild flurry of tropical fish and sea turtles.

The best way to see every side of Oahu is to book a car on Turo, so you can leave downtown Honolulu behind and bask in the wide variety of natural delights of Hawaii’s most populous island. Safe travels!Book the perfect car
In the winter, famous surfers compete here and it’s a show you won’t soon forget. In the summer, the calm waters are perfect for swimmers who want to take it easy.
About a 40-minute drive north will take you to Kaneohe with two great waterfall hikes, a farm with fresh poi, and the serene Valley of the Temples.
Head out on this hour-long drive to hike Oahu’s oldest volcano, check out the island’s rugged, wind-swept beach, and maybe even spot an endangered monk seal.
Ginos Tucson was exactly what we needed. The pick up and drop off from the airport is way better than dealing with a rental car center. Thanks again Gino.
Amazing car to roam around the island and cruise along the coast to get to all of your tourist attractions! Devin was an amazing and accommodating host. He also gave us a list of Top Rated Things To Do in Oahu 😊 Best host ever!
Great vehicle and thorough instructions throughout the reservation. Reasonably priced considering the inflated rental rates in Hawaii. I would definitely rent from them again!
Everything went great. No problems meeting at the airport for pickup and drop off. Car was in good shape. Better then a rental agency.
Jason was extremely responsive and kind! His Model X Tesla was impeccably clean. Any questions I had about my concerns on charging locally, he quickly answered and also gave a bunch of suggestions on tourist attractions. I highly recommend renting through him!
Awesome rental. Clean, spacious, incredibly comfortable. It was honestly nicer than some Car Rental Agency vehicles.
Everything was fantastic. Car was nice and clean. Car charger was included, tissue, and hand sanitizer. The Host was very thoughtful, even included some really great popular tourist attractions. Would definitely book again.
Very easy rental process and excellent customer service! Vehicle was clean and sanitized.
Ian made the pick up and drop off so easy. I like this so much better than going through a car rental agency. And, his Honda Pilot is very clean and worked very well for my family of five. I highly recommend Ian
Everything went smoothly with delivery of car. We enjoyed driving the Land Rover around Oahu. Price was reasonable for type of vehicle. We got to see more places on our vacation so we were happy to get this car during our time in Hawaii. Using this service worked out well and was a better deal than going through a rental agency. We would use turo.com again and Remi was very easy to communicate with as well as helpful with giving us some tips of places to go while here!!
David was awesome to rent from. Communication was great and was very accommodating! So much better renting through Turo than rental companies where you have to take shuttles and more time consuming.
First time using Turo. Awesome experience and Kirk was fantastic. Very responsive and the jeep was in perfect condition. My kid told me he wants to buy one when we get home. Way better than a rental agency.
Suchado and Sherman so ridiculously nice, imagine if car rental companies were like that
Great communication and awesome car. It’s a gas sipper that was definitely helpful with the current gas prices. Would highly recommend! Thanks again!
Great Jeep for exploring Oahu. Rental process, pick-up and drop off where all a breeze.
AWESOME EXPERIENCE!!!... VERY PROFESSIONAL AND ON TIME... BETTER AND MUCH QUICKER/EASIER THAN CAR RENTAL AGENCY!!!... HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!
Honest Angel is the perfect name for him and his business . This is my first time using Turo and my experience with him was by far the best comparing to corporate rental companies!! 5 stars is a understatement!! Service is exceptional and I cannot wait to book again.
The Jeep was awesome and smooth as a Cadillac. Highly recommend using Kirk for your rental needs. Painless process compared to using other rental companies. Thanks again.
Renting a car from John was easy, fast and reasonably priced. Big rental companies beware... Entrepreneurs like John are offering better services at a better price. And to top it off, its great knowing my money is going to a nice hard working person like John.
Marshall was so fantastic to work with! The rental process was totally seamless and he was so helpful and generous. Would refer him to everyone!
HIGHLY RECOMMEND Very clean car, and very well kept Fast and friendly communication with the owner BONUS: The car came with "Subaru Eye Sight", which is similar to Tesla autopilot. A useful feature on the island, that keeps you in lane (which is great for curvy roads) and most especially in rush hour traf!
Thank you so much Rony you made the rental process a breeze and provided my family and myself with a beautiful SUV. Best customer service and hospitality.
What a great experience! Highly recommend renting a Tesla (particularly w Trey). I felt really safe driving this w all the tech of this car. It’s going to be different if you haven’t tried it but it’s pretty straightforward. Trey picked me up at the airport and we went over the details of driving it at a nearby location. Definitely beats a typical car rental counter! Drop off was smooth as well. Communication was excellent. Mahalo nui loa Trey and family :)
This was the absolute best car rental experience I've ever had! Lei and her family were so accommodating and nice, the car was amazing (perfect condition brand new, clean) and the process was so much better than a rental center. Thank you Lei (and family) for making this experience amazing! Aloha
Great alternative to renting from the big expensive rental companies. Justin was great to deal with and even delivered his car to me for a reasonable fee.
Great guy. My first time in Turo and if all hosts are like him, I will never use a traditional car rental agency again. Freaking fantastic guy.
5 stars and then some. Super friendly and very helpful. Better than the big commercial car rental companies. I hope to use again.
We had a wonderful vacation. Rental companies were way over priced and we discovered Turo. Kevin was an excellent host and even allowed us to extend our rental days. We were able to explore the entire island and what better way to do it than in a jeep.
Was using Turo for the first time and was skeptical, but this beat my expectations. No standing in the line or lugging the bags to the Rental center. Was very convenient.. Jessica is a great host and waited patiently to deliver the car at the airport, even with delays. The check-in and check-out process was super easy. Thanks Jessica for adding to our great Hawai holiday! Oh, the SUV was very well maintained, cleaned, and better than the typical rentals at similarly priced vehicles..
John was very informative about car rental terms, his specific requirements, and where to pick up and drop off the car. He was very friendly and helpful with any questions I had. He made the rental process quick, easy, and convenient for me. Car was efficient for the family trip and rides smooth. Also great on gas. Thanks again John!
Very nice e reliable vehicle with plenty of space for whatever you have planned. Easy to get to from the airport. And an INCREDIBLE PRICE compared to the standard rental companies. Would definitely recommend using his car for whatever your needs are. Thanks Pete!
Great car and great people. Extremely accommodating and helpful with guiding me through my first Turo rental process.
Very responsive and prompt in meeting up. Car was great and really close to the Waikiki area. Getting this car was so much better than going through a normal rental agency.
Kolbert is awesome, he made the rental process EASY. The car was was perfect for our group of 4!
Matt was so helpful with delivery and pickup! Car was in perfect condition and at a fraction of the cost of current rental cars in HI. Such a better experience dealing directly with Matt instead of a rental agency!
Friendly owner, and a very smooth pickup and delivery. Car was clean, fueled, and ready as promised. A big step up from what a rental agency would offer. And no waiting in long lines!
Great experience! Caroline was so helpful with precise communication and was super helpful throughout! Better than rental companies for sure!!! We would use Caroline again everytime we are in Hawaii!!
Very responsive and helpful throughout the whole rental process! Great experience, thank you!
Deejay was great. He arrived at our meet up location earlier than scheduled. My flight arrived on time, however with all the Covid protocols and checkpoints took longer than expected. Deejay was patient and honored our arrangement. The whole rental process was straightforward and very convenient.
Chun is such a nice and friendly guy!He was very accommodating and helpful. He made the car rental process so easy.
My wife and I had an amazing time in Oahu with this rental. Tim was detailed and responsive during the rental process.
Scott was extremely accommodating for our stay in Hawaii! He met us at the airport and the whole rental process went very smoothly.
Smooth rental process. No problems at all. David was very helpful and responds quickly.
Clayton was so wonderful and made this so easy. I don’t think I’ll ever use a rental car agency again. Highly recommend!
Jeep was super clean ran great the rental process was convenient, Alison is easy to communicate with. Perfect island rental would 100% rent again
We enjoy our trip to Hawaii and Raul was a big part of that. He made the car rental process easy. His vehicle was very clean and fun to drive. Mahalo!
Max was awesome! So easy to communicate with and responded immediately The car was clean and had all the amenities promised (and more). This experience sold me on Turo. I may never use a rental agency again!
Nadia was very nice, car was great and we had a great time. She was also flexible when we needed to change our travel plans. We would definitely use Turo and Nadia again when we travel to Oahu. Much better than traditional car rental companies. Thanks Nadia!
Just wow! Superb Jeep, superb pricing, excellent service. My family had an amazing time around the island in the Wrangler Unlimited. Due to this experience, I will never use rental agency any more and only use Turo for all my rental needs. Thank you Eduardo.
The trip was perfect! I loved the vehicle! It was the perfect size for a vacation. A lot of space for both luggage and car space. Kekoa was super kind and helpful. The car rental process was very smooth and easy!
Easy pickup and drop off procedures! Lovely car that was essential for our trip. Way better than dealing with a rental car agency!
Very clean car in great condition. Scott was very attentive and accommodating. Delivery and return was seamless. Much better than car rental companies where you spend lots of time waiting for your car.
Excellent host and vehicle. If you are looking for a great luxury vehicle instead of the normal Hyundai or Chevy you’ll find at the car rental companies, then look no further! This BMW has great options and is large enough to haul all your beach gear in the back. Questions or concerns? Matthew responds extremely quick and does everything he can to help answer them. This eliminates the hassle and stress of having to be placed on hold for extended periods of time. You will not be disappointed! Will definitely use his vehicles again!
The only downfall was that the radio did not work, but Daniel and his team took immediate actions and offered a portable speaker (free of charge) for the inconvenience. They were attentive and very communicative throughout the rental process. Overall I rate the experience Daniel and his team provided 5/5. Will definitely rent again.
Great information and communication. Pick up and drop off went smoothly. Jeep was in good condition and as described. I’ll never stand at the rental car counter again!
Rental was perfect and half the price of the big rental car companies. Car was new, clean and exactly as advertised. Masaaki is a very nice guy! So fun to deal with and extremely accommodating! Many thanks for making our Oahu trip wonderful!
Melissa was an excellent host! Her delivery service made the whole rental car process so much more convenient and streamlined than a traditional car rental.
Amy is such an amazing host. The car was very clean and fun to drive. Autopilot was so handy to use during stop and go rush hour traffic. I really appreciate Amy reaching out to find out how old my kids were to provide the appropriate car seats! I really look forward to our next trip and will be using and recommending Jeremy and Amy! Mahalo!
What a Fantastic rental interaction our family had with Dustin. He was puntuale, accommodating and all around great guy. This was our fist time with Turo and Dustin made the rental process super simple and safe.
Short and sweet, this 10-mile highway twists north east from Honolulu through the lush Koʻolau mountains, offering dramatic views of the city and the hilly jungle, until the chill beach town of Kailua.
Start this drive from Kaneohe for an incredible driving experience along this windward highway for a more rural side of Oahu with small farms, quiet beaches, and the shoot location for Jurassic Park.
Drive along the coast of the North Shore to see the beaches where pro surfers meet giant waves, and then take your Honolulu car rental alternative west to the wild, sacred, lava shoreline of Kaʻena Point.
