Very easy and convenient! 35+ MPG with these gas prices in an SUV speaks for itself. Highly recommend!
Jeff was easy to communicate with and renting the car was so much easier then going through a rental agency. We will definitely rent through Jeff again!
Everything went as smooth as butter. Easy drop off, and pick up. Car is super clean. Great communication, can’t ask for better. I am using big rental companies less and less. Especially when you can get service like this.
Great vehicle. Curtis was extremely accommodating. Skip using the jeep rental companies and choose this Jeep!
Todd was more than accommodating, communicative, flexible with rental times and over all an amazing rental car provider He goes above and beyond to make the rental process as seamless as possible. We will use him every time we come to Hawaii. We highly recommend him. His vehicle is pristine, and he has to be the most polite and easy person to rent from. Anyone who uses corporate rental companies, should reconsider. Todd makes the whole process easy and stress free !!! He is so polite and nice. Thank you Todd. Mahalo. If I could give him 10 stars I would. He absolutely deserves it !!! Thanks again
The best alternative to messy rental companies! Easy to work with Tom and Jessica. Excellent customer service and responsive. Very professional
So glad I found out about Turo. Sooo much easier than hassling with car rental companies! The Subaru was great—sunshade and phone charger all included! Excellent communication—thanks, John!
Great time with a great owner offering a great service way better then renting from big rental companies
The car rental process Chad sets up is simple and detailed at Kona airport. He is also very helpful and quick to respond. Definitely will rent from Chad again.
Nice car. Worked great for a family of five, even with scuba and camera gear. SUPER easy delivery and return! No commercial car rental agency could compete.
Very nice vehicle with easy pick up and drop off at the airport. Heather was ready and waiting when we arrived. It was also nice to have a hybrid with the current gas prices.
Shawn and his 4Runner were the perfect combination for our family trip (4 of us). The included ice chest, beach mats, umbrella, and chairs came in clutch for us. We loved the extra space of having an SUV so we always kept beach towels and supplies with us as we toured the island. The 4WD also came in handy when we went to the summit of Mauna Kea. With high gas prices, it wasn't too bad for economy either...we averaged 20.7 mpg for the duration of our trip (~2 weeks). Shawn and his team were always responsive before, during and after if we had any questions. Would highly recommend them and this 4Runner if you need extra space or need 4WD. It has the 3rd row seats if you need to seat more people, but we had them down the entire time. The Big Island was great and the 4Runner helped us see it all. Thanks Shawn!
Drive In Hawaii was an excellent experience. Wonderful communication. Flawless. First time using Turo and this experience makes me never want to use a car rental agency again. :)
Carrie’s jeep was wonderful!!! So clean and better than anything a rental agency would have. We had so much fun in it. The roof comes off very easy too!
It was nice having the option of going a little off road, not an option for most car rental companies. Good communication.
Brian responded fast and was quick to offer assistance/advice. So glad I found this app when all the other rental companies were sold out. Life saver
First experience with Turo and Steven made this easier than any rental agency I’ve ever been to. The car was immaculate. No issues, all good. 10/10 would work with Steven again.
Jonathan was super friendly, punctual, great communication. The car was perfect for our family of 5 (plus 5 large bags). Extremely convenient pickup & drop off - way better than legacy car rental companies. Highly recommend!!
We had a wonderful experience renting a 2021 Toyota 4Runner through Zhen for our week long vacation to the Big Island. The vehicle pickup system at the Kona Airport was seamless, the vehicle was as advertised, clean, and comfortable. We prefer Turo over mainline rental companies, and Zhen’s high level of service, professionalism, and kindness makes him our preferred Turo source for future island visits. The 4Runner had only 11,130 on the odometer when we started our trip.
Timm's car was perfect for the trip! He was super nice and easy to communicate with, met us at the airport both ways, quick and easy, and it's SO nice not to have to deal with rental companies. The car was in great shape, and took us all over the island without problem, and there was a nice little guide in the car of good places to stop and check out. We were SUPER happy with this car.
This was such a great car to rent for our week in Hawaii! We drove all around to Hilo and Volcano National Park and this car was perfect. It was also super fuel efficient which we appreciated since gas prices are so high on the island and super convenient with the airport pickup and drop off. Also, I lived the little touches like the battery pack and charging cord that were in the glove box. I would definitely rent this car again.
Amazing, Danielle has a great ride and a great vibe. Pickup and drop off at the airport puts any rental agency to shame. (The $30 fee is literally for parking.) Great communication (making pickup easy) and little fun "amenities" within the car.
Ryan is super friendly and easy to work with. This jeep was a much better option than the stock rental Jeep’s out there from the big name rental companies. Highly recommend!
Ailen was flexible and timely. We missed our flight and she changed our pick up time easily. All with a big smile.
Jeff made the rental process simple and easy. No complaints. Great car! Thanks Jeff!
Would book again! It was easy to book, the car was very clean, and the host answered all of our questions as first time Turo users. Highly recommend the host and using Turo instead of traditional car rental companies.
Steve was able to get us his awesome Jeep in record time, and conveniently had us pick up and drop off at the airport. When all the car rental companies failed us, Steve delivered.
This was easy! Better than the big chain car rental companies. We went straight to our car. It was ready to go in the airport parking lot and everything went just as expected or better.
Incredible, first time using Turo. Nic provided a very clean car (much cleaner than commercial car rental companies) with curbside delivery at the airport and then airport car return. Fast, NO waiting in lines or airport shuttle with hefting luggage about. The easiest, fastest, best car rental experience I have had!
First Time using TURO and we are very happy to find FRK's listing. This Jeep was perfect for what we wanted to do and could have done more. FRK was very friendly and accommodating. Explaining and giving pointers of the Island as if we were her friends coming to visit! Thanks again for the kindness. Rent this Jeep from this owner... You won't be disappointed. We will rent again if we're lucky enough to return to the Big Island! Price was great and could do more than rental companies and without the hassle at the counter or the terrible customer service regular rental companies have. Check your insurance... Ours covered renting on TURO so it was a breeze!! Pros: everything Cons: really can't remember anything negative about renting this vehicle.
Great car! Took us everywhere we needed to go with no problems! Also a very gas efficient vehicle which was very appreciated given the high gas prices in HI. Nicholas was super responsive and picked us up from the airport. Highly recommend using Nicholas's vehicle for your trip on the Big Island.
Turo is an amazing service! Easy to book, all the information is available in the app during travel. Easy to pick up and drop off vehicles during traveling. Proudly choose Turo to support the local community instead of supporting huge car rental companies.
Bryce’s car was great. Clean and comfortable. Bryce was a great host—responsive to all questions. Pickup and drop off at airport was so easy. Plus cost was half of what the rental companies were asking.
Great little car and good on gas for Hawaii’s gas prices. Kelly was amazing and picked me up right in front of our terminal. It was four of us with 2 large luggage and one small which was a very tight squeeze but we made it work.
Was a little on the spendy side, but still far cheaper than a standard rental of the same size. Back was wide enough to accommodate two car seats and a small adult. Of note: due to airport rules, even if you pay for airport pick up, you will be picked up by the driver and taken to a spot just outside the airport for the official exchange. This created a little more transition time than a standard rental, but worth it since it was about half the price.
First let me say, the price of this rental is extremely reasonable for what you get! Ceasar is the ultimate host- super communicative, responds very quickly and met us at the airport with a smile and keys in hand, even though our flight was a bit late. His vehicle is new, clean, loaded with all kinds of options, and when placed into Eco mode, 350+ miles per tank- with AC going! We fit 5 adults and one child with luggage in the Palisade and were very comfortable. And without the luggage on our drive to Hilo and dinners around Waimea- super comfortable to drive and ride in. I’ve never driven a Hyundai- and was quite surprised at the fit, finish, electronics, nav (handled all Hawaiian street names and locations easily) and stereo- we were lucky to find Caesar and his vehicle. Oh, and ask him about the best Mexican food on the island! You won’t be disappointed and the drive is absolutely beautiful and away from the tourist areas.
Jonathan was easy to work with and communicated quickly and checked up on me during my trip. Car was clean prior to arrival. I would recommend renting from him. His 7 passenger Ascent was clutch when there were no cars available at the car rental agency during my trip to Kona, Hawaii.
Working with Emily on this trip was an absolute pleasure and totally hassle free. Way easier than going to a rental counter. She met us at the airport based on our flight number and we communicated on the way back for curbside drop off. It doesn’t get any easier than that. If you are thinking of renting a car in Hawaii, book through Emily and you will be very happy you did.
The RAV4 was better than expected. We enjoy using Turo as it makes the rental process so much easier.
Kahili was responsive and accommodating when we needed an earlier pick up time. The car is fun to drive. Great gas mileage and plenty of space for 4 people.
This was our first time using Turo and I will definitely be a repeat customer. The process is very easy and much smoother than the rental companies. This vehicle was clean and worked great. Holds plenty of luggage. Samuel was very responsive and knows what he is doing.
Our car was SHOWROOM beautiful! Bethany was excellent to work with, she even showed me a couple of differences between Turo and regular car rental that saved me some serious $$!! Turo and Bethany are awesome. Goodbye regular Car Rental companies!
Everything went as planned, car was great, island was even better! Sandy was at airport upon arrival with her car and also when we left. Saved us from using a taxi or going through rental agency, which had no cars anyways. Pleasant experience for first time with Turo.
Car was as immaculate as the instructions for pick up and drop off were easy. Will never use a car rental agency again when possible. Kuuleinani was responsive and helpful in all ways. Have already provided recommendations to her for friends traveling to the Big Island. Sold on Turo.
Awesome host and service! I’m not dealing with all the hassle of rental cars companies anymore. Everything was explained clearly. The Jeep was clean and in great condition.
Irina is dependable, friendly, and punctual! She returned all our communications in a timely manner and her car was in excellent condition! We recommend her service and the Turo app to anyone looking for a reasonably priced rental with a personal touch.
This was the perfect car for our family of 5. It fit all our luggage to and from the airport as well as our beach supplies. It is a super easy drive and although it is a big car (Jeep Grand Cherokee) was very fuel efficient. We were able to use CarPlay to get around the island and listen to music. Plus the moonroof and a/c were amazing!! Communication with Ryan was super easy. We ended up having to book this car upon arrival due to an issue with our original car reservation. He was ready for us to pick it up very quickly and we were able to move on to enjoying our vacation without a hitch. I would highly recommend Ryan.
Chad was super helpful and accommodating from the start to finish if my rental. The car was in excellent condition and the rental process was a breeze! Thank you Chad!
This was my first use of Turo and I highly recommend it to everyone looking forward a better experience than the big rental companies it’s easier and more convenient I am looking forward to using Turo and specifically Kuuleinani vehicles again thanks for making it easy and safe
