Take a deep breath and relax into your island life. Honolulu is a city with plenty to do, but nobody is out to do it in a hurry.
So take your time reveling in the natural beauty, perfect beaches, fresh seafood, and tons of outdoor activities. When you’re over the crowds, book a Honolulu car rental alternative to head out of the city and find a quieter side of Oahu.
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. Whether you’re looking for an active challenge or serious lounge session, Honolulu is your paradise.
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: beautiful beachfront, 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 Honolulu car rental alternative to the south end of the city, and swim with a wild flurry of tropical fish and sea turtles.
Skip the rental car counter
The best way to see all of the sides of Oahu is to book a Honolulu car rental alternative on Turo, so you can beat traffic early, and explore the mountains and beaches at your own speed.
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 in your Honolulu car rental alternative will take you to Kaneohe with two great waterfall hikes, a farm with fresh poi, and the serene Valley of the Temples.
Head out in your Honolulu car rental alternative 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.
Great experience renting w/Wilson. He was in constant communication about arrival time when doing the pick up at the airport. The car was clean and ran perfectly, plus it was great on gas! I’ll definitely be looking to rent from him again!
The car was very clean when we got it and nice to drive. No issues at all with pick up and return. Nkosei was good at communicating and very flexible with pick up and drop off times when our flight times changes. This was great for us!
Amazing host. So helpful and nice! I for sure recommend renting from them!
Came out here for our honeymoon. The car was very good in gas and Joe was very responsive and helpful!
Great host, good car, no problem. I would recommend Kevin to anyone
Ryan was fantastic. He was really easy-going and flexible and at the same time punctual and excellent with communication. The car was enjoyable to drive, so good that we're getting the model 3 soon.
The model 3 is a fantastic ride that makes me excited for the future
Great car and service. Mohammed did a complimentary pick up.
Was great using Matthew’s car. Very easy to communicate with and having to do the booking without meeting each other, he gave very easy and precise directions on how to get the car. Great experience. Thanks Matt!
Great experience all the way around. I will rent from Turo and Larry again.
Shamsul was awesome and communication with me and easy to return to. Will definitely recommend him to anyone else and use him again when in Waikiki/Honolulu!!
Lou and Clint were so easy and friendly to communicate with. The car was great to drive - we are definitely glad we got it for our stay. Lou responds super fast and made us feel very welcomed!
Great guy, he responded immediately to my texts and calls. Customer service was great!
The convenience of the pick up and drop off was great. The car is a little beat up but it did its job perfectly by taking me from point A to point B.
This was an awesome experience, Adam really was a great host and had a terrific vehicle. Perfect for what my wife and I were looking for. I definitely recommend using him next time you’re in Hawaii.
it’s very convenient to pickup&return and cleaning option. If you might go to beach, keep add cleaning option. The condition of car is good also. Thanks Matt.
From start to finish, this was a great experience. I appreciate the customer service and prompt communication. Highly recommend!
The car was as advertised. Instructions were lengthy but straightforward, which is what’s important. Would be great to have a prepaid fuel and cleaning option. If you are staying in Waikiki near the Aston or Marriott, the parking garage is far on foot (1.6-1.8 miles) and uber will run you 20-25. Savings from the parking garage are only helpful if you have time to run back and forth to the garage.
Jacky is awesome. He's super friendly and was very helpful for my first ever turo rental. His mustang really added to our experience for our first time in Hawaii and I couldn't be more thankful. Thank you again, Jacky!
Kelly is so nice and accommodating, her car was just what we needed. Highly recommend 🤙🏻
Vehicle was in good condition and pickup/drop-off went smoothly - would definitely use again.
Aric was very Accommodating always return my messages promptly always a nice attitude I would definitely rent from him again
A great car , very clean and it’s fuel efficient , Miles is a friendly guy and we recommend renting through him
Ethan was a great host. Accommodating and responsive. Car was perfect for getting around Oahu.
Shawn was very friendly and accommodating. It was a very good experience dealing with him. I forgot to tell him to put a red dot or something on the gas tank release icon on the inside of the car. I had a hard time finding it. :-)
Thank you very much. The car is so nice. I’m so happy since One of my dreams is to drive MINI. MINI gave us wonderful time for our honeymoon.
It's a great host. I am very kind and would like to borrow again.
Lisa was incredible to work with! Easy pick-up at our gate the day we arrived and convenient drop off instructions on an early morning flight out. Her car was very clean and was perfect for our week vacation.
She was a very nice host and extremely flexible. I would love to go through her again when I come back
Great experience renting from Lou. She is very communicative and prompt with her response to my questions. Car is in a great condition, very clean and so much fun to drive around the island!
Thanks to David's Mustang we spent very nice week on Oahu. See you next time!
VW was great. Plenty of room for everything we needed, had great pick up and it drove great! Thanks Larry!
Ana was fantastic and such a good communicator. Walked me through the process and was very patient. Car was great and was great on fuel efficiency. Wod rent from again when back in Oahu.
Thank you Ken. Trip went smooth. Thanks for upgrading us
Fun car, stellar service from the owner, super easy to find parking spaces for!! Highly recommend for a visit to the island! 😃
Fun little car to explore the island. Kaitlyn was great to work with and would recommend her for anyone.
Outstanding service. Would rent from Sam any day! Easy, great communicator, great car!!!
Robert was great. Super chill guy but also very responsive. The Audio TT was prefect.... a great way to see Hawaii.
Excellent condition of the car. Anderson was really helpful to follow all the process to pick up and return. Definetly the best experience
Smooth pick up and delivery. Great communications throughout. Will totally rent again.
Thanks for being so helpful and accommodating during our trip, loved being able to cruise the city.
Wilson was so incredibly easy and accommodating to work with for our first Turo experience... for our Honeymoon! Great communication, friendly, car was clean and as described, made it economically easy to get around the island to anywhere we needed to go and affordably much cheaper than any of the rental companies. Look no further than Wilson if you ever need a reliable car for your trip. Wilson wasn’t able to meet us for the checkout but made it easy to drop off and ordered us an Uber back to the airport that was spot on time, until next time 🤙🏽
Arthur is an exceptional host! He has made every possible effort to make our trip as smooth as possible. Great car in a well maintained condition! Totally recommend
Olga's car was clean, well-maintained, and a great electric drive. Only downside was that our hotel (Marriott Ko Olina) had a broken charger in the self-park garage so we had to valet every day to use their other charger. Otherwise a great trip and loved the car!
Shamsul was awesome and friendly. He picked us up from the airport and gave a few tips on getting around in Hawaii. He was flexible on time as we couldn’t get the car back at the time we had said and let us use it for a couple more hours. Easy car to drive around in and it was fuel efficient, air con worked really well! Will definitely use again if we come back! Thanks Shamsul!! Appreciated the convenience of having this car on our holiday.
Megan had someone drop off the car to me. It was quick, easy, and convenient. Definitely enjoyed my trip.
Priced affordable. I Liked that they came to get me at the airport. Then was able to drop me off as well when my trip was done. Would highly recommend. Thanks again!!
Highly recommend. David was a very lovely guy, good communication and easy going. The Porsche 911 was very clean and ran perfectly. What a great way to experence the island of Hawaii.
Gavin was a great host! As soon as I booked my trip he was in contact with me right away. He quickly responded to all messages and was very kind about our schedule changing the day of pick up. The car was very clean and reliable. It got great gas mileage and the AC was nice and cold. When I visit Oahu again I will definitely book through him again.
Jei really was an amazing host and being a first time turo user he really did make it so easy and enjoyable!! Super flexible and always lightning fast with replying to messages. Could not recommend highly enough!!
Great rental experience with Justin. Clear communication, easy instructions for smooth pick up/ drop off. Even with an unforeseen delay to pick up the vehicle of no fault of his or my own, Justin was flexible. Even throw in the use of a beach umbrella for me to borrow during my rental time and thanked me for my military service. Its the little things, thank you Justin.
Excellent service. Kevin went out of his way to accommodate. Quick communication, professional and friendly. Highly recommended. ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️
Dan is literally the man. Super accommodating, car was in pristine condition and he was very easy to get a hold of and talk to. Would definitely recommend renting off him if you’re looking for a great car and great price!
Maithy is a good host. The car is very clean, enjoyed lots
Anil and his team were extremely helpful and courteous! Definitely would rent with them again!
David was great along with the car thanks for everything David
Very kind and politely explained. The car was in good condition and it was a comfortable drive. Thank you very much.
What’s a fantastic car!! Easy and fun to drive! Thanks Jon for this unforgettable experience at Oahu!
Never used Turo before. Very convenient and cheaper than using normal rental car companies. The car was not the best of vehicles I could afford, but since I was not being reimbursed for my trip for a rental car, Joe had one that fit within my daily spending limits; it was reliable, clean, and small enough for most parking spaces and large enough to support my needs while on business. Hawaii roads are not the best roads for small cars, especially tires and brakes, but the Nissan handled well, the A/C worked all the time and gas mileage was great (only filled up once and got everywhere I needed to go). I will use Joe again when next I go to Hawaii.
Tony is the best and was super understanding when our original driver took us to the wrong pick up point initially. Then, we had to extend for a few more days. He was super helpful, with lots of tips for the island. We were searching for our new home on the island and renting with Tony allowed us to see multiple places rather than rely on Uber and Lyft. Plus, we got to drive a stick shift again!
Erin was absolutely amazing. So helpful and understanding, we run into a small problem but she was on top of it right away. I couldn’t have ask for a better service. Thank you so much Erin. If we go back to Hawaii, I will for sure rent from you again. Thank you !!
Car is not perfect but does the job. Nick is very ponctual, flexible and friendly
Awesome car made for an awesome trip. Jon was even flexible enough to keep the car longer when we decided to extend our trip.
Don went the extra step for me; picked me up where I was staying, so I didn't have to uber it to go pick up his car. His car was clean and ready and Don was extremely flexible with my timing. Thanks so much!
Good car and easy pick up and drop off. I was able to drop it off earlier than expected so the flexibility was great.
Miles was great, this was my first time using Turo and he made the whole experience wonderful. The car was clean and as advertised. I would recommend Miles to anyone
Overall a positive rental experience, we enjoyed the more ‘self check in’ style experience. The car was as described, although as mentioned in some other reviews there is a rattle which isn’t ideal. Instructions and recommended fuel stations were Handy. Thanks again
Very happy with the car. Matt was reliable and answered all questions promptly.
An awesome machine to drive around the island. It handles well, lockable compartments and a great guy to work with. Way better and cheaper than renting it at the mall. He was on time to the minute for drop off and pick up. Truly amazing and professional.
Great car! Pick up and drop off was super smooth. Thanks for making my car rental experience amazing!
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 and take your Honolulu car rental alternative 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.
