Absolutely great having an SUV on the island, especially while rental cars are so hard to find!

This car was exactly as advertised and cheaper than all the rest!! We felt honored to use it for its first rental, we did our best to treat it with aloha! Danielle was very timely in messaging and assuring everything was okay with pickup and drop off, made things easy! I would recommend using Danielle as a host if possible!! God Bless and Mahalo!😄

Kanai’s Subaru Forester drove like a dream! We couldn’t have asked for a better rental car experience. We used it to drive all around the island, from Waimea Canyon to Hanalei Bay. We even used it to rescue our friends when their rental car from Budget broke down. FWIW: don’t bother renting from rental car companies. It’s informal, takes forever to wait for a car, and is a hassle you don’t want to deal with for a potentially unreliable vehicle and awful customer service. Rent local. Kanai’s brand new Forester was waiting for us in the airport parking lot when we arrived, in perfect condition, ready to go! We simply walked out of the airport and was off on our adventure. Our friends waited 6 hours for their rental and it ended up breaking down. It cost them another several hours of being on hold attempting to get roadside assistance. Lucky us, we had Kanai’s car. Our group of 2 became a group of 4, and it was perfectly roomy and comfortable. Kanai is a generous and kind host. His deep knowledge of Kauai is another perk you get to enjoy. Rent this car. You’ll thank me later!

I cannot say enough amazing things about Ginger and her Kia. Turo and Ginger completely saved the day for us as we didn’t realize there were no rental cars available on the island until two days before we left. The car was brand new really fun to drive. The interface was really easy to draw apps from my phone. It’s perfect for two or three people, but not a lot of storage space in the back for luggage for more. Ginger was awesome and easy to work with an extraordinarily sweet every step of the way. And keeping her phone number and excited to refer microwave on friends her way :). Where is the secret sixth star???

I was unsure what to expect both from the car and Anastassia, but any concerns I had quickly went away the moment I meet Anastassia and saw her car. The car was immaculate, clean and everything she said it was. In addition Anastassia was the prefect balance of genuine kindness and professionalism. I enjoyed the car and experience so much that I will make sure my next trip to the island includes renting from her again. On a side note when I walked out of the terminal Anastassia was there with her car, and I was on the road in less than 10 minutes. As I left the airport I drove by each of the traditional car rental facilities I saw lines of people 20 to 30 deep waiting to get into the door to start their rental process. Time is something you can not get back and with Anastassia's rental I was at my destination and unpacked in less time that it would have taken me to get through the rental car lines.

This was our first time using Turo, and Ryan's too. We would use Turo again in a heartbeat because of this experience. The car was as good as any rental from a typical agency - clean, new, all the functions you'd expect. But what you gain from Turo is the friendly and thoughtful owner. Ryan put a cooler, compact beach chairs, cleaning supplies and a bin in the back for us. Perfect for all you need in Kauai! He also was so nice! He shared a lot of info with my husband for our tourist needs. My brother is also contemplating moving to the island and he's become a connection for him. Thanks for an awesome experience, Ryan! We wish you all the best!

Brad is awesome, kind, polite and responsible! He was easily reachable, even a few days before our trip. When we arrived at the airport, he explained clearly where the car was and how to operate the lockbox. He was so nice and even prepared a welcome card which was a surprise! The car was brand new!!! That was way beyond our expectation. The car was easy to drive, had a lot of cool features, and was really gas economic. I was able to drive it around the Kauai island for no problem. If you end up here (Turo), looking for a rental car at Kauai, go for Brad. If he is available, it is really a fortune to book your tour with him. 5 STAR recommendation!!!

Nathaniel was an excellent host. He provided numerous services to make our trip most enjoyable. His informational packet on the the four regions of Kauai with recommended restaurants and activities was very helpful. Nathaniel responses to questions and concerns were very prompt and he was willing to work with us to address our concerns. We highly recommend Nathaniel’s vehicles for rental. His prices were also excellent. Mahalo, Nathaniel!

I can easily say that this was the best car rental experience I have ever had in all of my travels. From the time I booked her vehicle until after the drop off, Tiffany did everything she can to make this a smooth experience. She accommodated all of my requests including delivering the vehicle to my hotel because I could not find a ride to get to the original pick up location (yes finding a cab or a shared ride was almost impossible while we were in Kauai). The 4Runner was incredibly clean and ran great. Thanks Tiffany for going above and beyond and doing everything you did for us. I hope your vehicle will be available the next time we are there...

Absolutely amazing host. Tamara was super accommodating for our trip, and helped make our trip the best it could be. If we didn’t have this car, our vacation plans would have been extremely limited and inaccessible. Because of Tamara, we were able to visit a ton more places and make the most of our time on the island. 10000/10!! Thank you Tamara! :)

Love Ginger’s Kia Soul! Ginger’s communication was amazing as she was available well before, during, and after our trip. Upon receipt, the car was spotless and we were provided hand sanitizer and antibacterial wipes for the duration of our trip. Pickup and drop off was a breeze! I highly recommend Ginger for your rental needs.

Joshua really came through for me with this trip. It was my daughter's birthday trip, and he was super helpful trying to bend over backwards to make our trip schedule work. He let me book more days very last minute. I truly appreciate him. 🙏 He made it easy to collect the vehicle at Lihue Airport. He parks in the self parking, so there is no stress as to where to meet. He conveniently leaves the keys in a lockbox and responds to texts quickly. The vehicle is SUPER fuel efficient, comfortable, and spacious! It's a perfect vehicle for beach hopping! 🌊🏝 I highly recommend booking Joshua's 2021 Honda CR-V.

We had an absolutely wonderful experience with Lynda (and family) and this car! This was my first time using Turo, which was a bit intimidating, but everything was so smooth and comfortable thanks to Lynda! I appreciated the option for airport pick-up, which was very convenient and easy, and the host went out of the way to provide helpful general information too! The car was very clean, and was exactly what we needed. Lynda was very prompt in response to messages and I appreciated that. All in all, this first experience has definitely made me decide to continue using Turo! If it weren’t for Lynda (and this car), our family trip to Kauai would not have been the same. I would definitely rent from Lynda again. Thank you!!

My wife and I travel inter-island very often but this was our first time using Turo. Brandon was great! The car was easy to find and his instructions were very easy to follow. He messaged me the day before about the trip coming up and parked the car in the lot with plenty of time before our flight was scheduled to land. The overall experience was much better than catching the bus to the rental counter like we usually do. I would use Turo and Brandon’s CR-V again. Thanks again, Brandon!

Anita was an incredible host!!! I highly recommend booking with her. She was extremely responsive and thorough with her instructions on the car pickup and return. The vehicle was exceptionally clean and was available to be delivered to the Lihue Airport which made our trip run so smoothly!!! The vehicle also has all the latest features such as Bluetooth and Apple CarPlay which made navigating Kauai super easy and enjoyable as everything from our maps and music synced with the vehicle seamlessly.

Meagan's Acura was absolutely incredible! The perfect car for a Kauai trip! Roof rack on top made SUP'ing fantastically easy! (Make sure to get straps from the rental shop). The car itself was very clean and roomy, and accomdated my party of 5 for a week long trip. The car also had an AUX input which made connecting the phone a breeze! Just don't forget to bring your 3.5mm adapter and a phone mount for navigating! Meagan was very accommodating and made getting the car and dropping the car off an absolute breeze! If this car happens to be available for your rental, don't hesitate!

Tiffany was the best! We were coming from another island and managed to get on an earlier flight very last minute and Tiffany was able to get to the airport two hours ahead of what we originally planned with only an hour’s notice. She checked in mid-trip to make sure all was going well and had lots of great suggestions. The vehicle itself is brand new, was super clean when we got it and drives great. Highly recommend renting with Tiffany!

Furthermore, the price was extremely affordable compared to other rentals; and the car was very nice. If you’re visiting Kauai you should definitely rent from Joe, I know I will be on my future trips.

Both the car and car owner, Pua, provided a great experience for us in Kauai! Pua was kind, very helpful and sent us information on spots to visit while we were visiting. I was worried about the car rental situation after reading many reviews on Yelp and Reddit via Avis and Pua spent 20 minutes on the phone with me prior to arrival to help ease my concerns. As for the car it is brand new, very clean and provided smooth transportation for the whole stay. I will recommend Pua and this car to all my friends and family as I had a much more restful flight to Kauai knowing I had a car ready and waiting for me. I highly recommend her for all your rental car needs!!

This is was my first rental through Turo , the fist 2 host cancel on me because they said they can make more money canceling me . However when I booked again, I was so lucky to do it with Debra , very honest person, had a great communication before my arrival to Kauai, car in great shape and mechanical condition, I don’t know why there are only 5 stars to rate a person, if I can, I will love to give it all the stars that are in the galaxy . More definitely we wi recommend this host .

Jessica Nishimoto provided my family and I with an amazing experience through our first ever Turo experience in Kauai, HI. ;) She was very informative of how the process worked and tried accommodating my family and I with the most flexible and positive experience we could ask for. She left a sincere thank you note in the vehicle, a form with places to visit and eat, and a popular Hawaiian dessert. Our vehicle was clean in and out, gas was full and lasted us through our five day trip with extra to spare, and the vehicle was easy to find at the airport. We did not experience any problems with our vehicle and it held up with the terrain through Waimea canyon, north shore beaches, and the Wailua area for hiking.

Patsy’s Nissan Kicks was the answer to our prayers on our honeymoon in Kauai! Every rental car agency was booked, so we were so grateful to find out about Turo last minute. Patsy and her husband Bruce could not have been more accommodating with drop off and pick up, being super flexible with both, and even gave us a bottle of champagne and Pellegrino! This car took us exactly where we wanted to go, was awesome on gas mileage and spotless inside so could not have asked for more. Honestly we would book with Patsy and Bruce before a car agency next time!

The host was great and so was the vehicle. It was my first time using the app and I treated it like a regular car rental. I did not meet some of the contract requirements and ended up paying a $257 car cleaning fee. Make sure you read and follow all the rules of the contract otherwise it will be a very expensive outcome like it was for me. There was also a scratch on one of the doors, most likely from a car parked next to me that slammed their door against my car rental. I will have to pay for repairs after the vehicle is taken to a professional for an estimate. If it takes long to fix the vehicle I will according to the host be charged for the down time of the vehicle. The daily rate was $468 and I paid a total of over $1800. Plus cleaning fee and repair fee this is definitely turning out to be the most expensive car rental I have ever rented. READ and follow instructions will be my advice.

The pick up at LIH airport was incredibly easy with remote unlock. The vehicle was impeccable - clean, smooth comfortable driving, perfect room for our family of five. We chose the option for cleaning ($25). The whole process was straight forward from beginning to end. Be aware that if you choose pick up at LIH of the $15 daily parking charge. Vehicle has automatic everything and roomy and includes back up camera. Emily took time to give us personal recommendations on things to do and good spots and places to eat. Would rent again if on Kauai. Thanks Emily!

Kanai was able to drop the car off at the hotel I was staying in as opposed to me picking it up at the airport parking lot. Check out was easy too because Kanai was able to meet me at the airport before my departing flight. When I return I would definitely rent from Kanai again.
