Wonderful car, wonderful hosts. Kalena and Jessica had excellent and happy communication throughout our rental. The car was easy to drive, great gas mileage (we explored the island quite a bit and only filled it up at the very end of our 7 days) and its compact design makes it a breeze to park in busy shopping centers and tight beach parking lots. Worth it and will rent from them on future trips!!

Pros: 1. Fast responses from and easy communication with Tom and Kelly (Kelly dropped and picked up the car at the airport) throughout the trip. Kelly even messaged me to check how I am doing in the middle of my family trip. 2. Pick-up/drop-off location (KOA airport parking lot) 3. Good car operating condition overall (conditions that you can expect for 5-year old car). There were scratches on wheels and small dents on bumpers so I took pictures and posted them on the Turo as it's suggested by Turo during check-in. 4. Reasonable price as compared to other listings at the time of my reservation, considering busy season with high demands. Cons: 1. I had to replace the car key fob battery in the middle of trip. This is unforeseen issue for the car owner so I am not complaining. But it could been nice if an extra battery was available in the car :) Anyways, Kelly reimbursed me the battery price immediately after my trip with apology. Thanks, Kelly. Mahalo~~

Easy communication. Seamless pick up and drop off. Way cheaper than mainstream car rentals right now (if you’re lucky enough to even secure a reservation). We were in desperate need of a car for our vacation, Turo and Ugly Duckling were very reliable, the car was in great condition and we enjoyed our road trips in it. Thank you!

Amazing. One of the best decisions I’ve made. My family loved every moment of our trip the and the Blue rabbit Jeep was a dream. We almost felt like celebrities driving around. Extremely clean when we got it. It was practically brand new. I’m so glad I went with Charles Jeep rather another Jeep. They even had masks, wipes and a cooler with ice cold water. They also had a book in the Jeep which is highly rated for things to do in the big island which we didn’t end up needing to read. I would rent this again the next time I come. Top notch. Made me want to buy the same exact Jeep here in the Bay Area with the exact customizations! Thank you so much Charles, Ariya and Leihulu!

OMG! Epic day exploring in Steven's jeep. We headed up highway 11 towards the volcano and had a 14 hour adventure across the island. We stopped at a fresh fruit stands, had coffee at a family plantation, swam with the locals in Miolii. Watched some cliff divers, did some 4 wheeling to Green Sands Beach and then finally the volcano. EPIC! Great vehicle and great host. 👍

Great car and amazing experience with Andriy. He was prompt, friendly, and very accommodating. He was ready with the car at the arrivals area when we arrived. He handed us the keys and we just got in and drove away. An awesome experience relative to standard car rental services. The car was in immaculate condition and we didn’t worry at all. He also provided us with some snorkeling gear, body boards and info for the Big Island. A really nice touch that we appreciated. He was also available by text or phone and he freely shared information about the island. When it was time to go home, he was waiting at the departures area and it was a simple as turning over the keys and that was all. I highly recommend Andriy and his service.

Thomas and Becky are the most wonderful hosts ever. The rental experience was smooth and the car is absolutely fantastic to drive around the island. Unfortunately we had an accident and the Jeep was damaged a bit, but we were well protected by the car and cared and looked after by Thomas and Becky. Truly grateful for all their kindness. Also the rate they charge is the most honest and friendly, despite the island is running out of rental cars and almost all other hosts surged their rental price to at least 2x of what they are charging. Wish them all the best and if you can book with them, consider yourself lucky. We definitely feel that way.

First time renting via Turo and we were extremely happy that we chose Timm. Timm was a great host. Communication was excellent. Picking up and dropping off the car was an easy process at the airport. Timm provided us with a goody bag and recommendations on what to do on the island. The pilot was very spacious and fun to drive. We will definitely recommend Timm for family and friends who would love to visit Hawaii!

Chevrolet Equinox 2013

We had a great Turo Rental with Brandon and his Chevy Equinox. I would use Brandon again if I was back in the Kona area any time soon. The Pick up/Drop off Pick up and drop off were easy. I imagine because of covid, the handoff was not in person but was very easy to deal with. It was easier that waiting in line with all of the other arrivals at some comercial rental car place. Pick up took acouple of minutes instead of 30-45 like most rental car places are. And that’s if they still have a car for you. So, WIN WIN on the Turo experience. The Car The Equinox was perfect for myself, my two kids and all of our stuff. We really did have more room than we needed. The car would probably accommodate five comfortably if needed. There was LOTS of room for our bags. The car doesn’t have the Apple Car Play/android feature, but it does have a USB-IN that worked for music and driving directions just fine. Tires were in great shape and I hade no concern with traction. The AWD part of it was nice to have to be able to venture onto a “so called road” to a beach that we wanted to go to. We took it slow and it was very nice to have the extra clearance under the car along with the AWD. Others took their small, low profile-rental cars on the same road which just seems bananas. So, another win for us. Interior was used but in great shape. There were NO issues with seats, seats belts, lights, locks, A/C etc. Seating was very comfy. Windows are tinted in the back which helps with heat and changing of clothes. All in all, Brandon via Turo was a great experience. I could have actually used my hertz points to go to a comercial rental place and paid less. The rental car places are a nightmare right now, especially in Hawaii. So going the Turo route was indeed better. Brandon did offer “extras” during the rental such as pre-paid gas, kayak rental etc, but didn’t pressure us into it at all. So, yep. I recommend Brandon and his Equinox. I believe he has other vehicle choices and I am sure that the other cars would be just as nice.

AMAZING car!!! We could not praise it more. The Jeep was super clean. The Jeep has some fun custom features and drives really smoothly. It's as if it walks over uneven terrain with each wheel on a separate suspension. EVERYWHERE you go people will smile at you, wave and give you a thumbs up about this car. We felt like we were celebrities :))) I personally love the color. We were 2 adults and 3 kids and everyone got their fun in. The kids loved standing up looking out of the roof while we were on private driveways, us adults loved the airflow, air conditioning, comfort, style and automatic features and we all loved the music as the sound system is really good. Charles was very accomodating. He even had ice cold water ready for us in a cooler. All questions were answered immediately and the guide book in the car helped to find the perfect places to visit. We will definitely rent from Charles again!

This was definitely the most I've ever paid for a rental car but that certainly wasn't Shawna's fault. The rates were very competitive given the crazy market on the Big Island at the time and Shawna and her husband were so easy to work with. Shawna even suggested I might be able to rebook at a lower rate! I just didn't want to risk anything once we were able to secure a car. Couldn't even find a Uhaul or line up an Uber from the airport. The Nissan Rogue totally saved our trip. We were traveling with our two year old and could not have experienced the island without this car. Shawna was also so quick to respond and accommodate our needs. The car was in great shape and super clean when we got it. I just wish I'd been able to clean it better upon return. I wanted to make things as easy for Shawna as she made them for us. If I ever need a car on the Big Island again, I'm skipping the rental agencies and contacting Shawna first.

Renting Thomas’ jeep was easy and fun. What a great way to see the big island. We saw everything we wanted to see and were able to access the summit of Mauna Kea for a spectacular sunset because of the 4x4 Jeep we rented. Rental car companies don’t allow their cars up to the summit and a 4 wheel drive is required and checked by a ranger before you drive onto the dirt road. The car was delivered to the airport, free of charge. It was so easy. Put the bags in and go. No counter lines, no paperwork and sign here, sign there. The car was immaculate and clean. It looked like a new car. It was fun to drive and the perfect way to see the big Island. Drop off was easy as well with Thomas meeting us early at the departure area of the airport. Again, unload the bags, snap a couple pics, and done. Easy. I’d rent from Thomas again in a heartbeat. Mahalo Thomas!
