Jeff made the rental process simple and easy. No complaints. Great car! Thanks Jeff!
Super easy!! No long waits at the rental counter. We got off the plane, found the car and drove off. Jeff and team were great communicators. We were running a bit to our flight, as we pulled up to the curb to drop luggage Jeff was waiting. No parking the car in the lot. He checked us out at the curb. Great experience all around.!
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.
The car was a great contribution to our stay in Kona. Perfect condition Emily was wonderful. Kind and very helpful. So much better than renting from a regular car rental agency. All in all exceptional experience! I would most definitely rent from Emily again! Mahalo Emily!
Emily really made this process super easy for us and would rent her car every time we’re in town over any rental agency. Also her car was perfect for 6 of us with 7 bags and couple of backpacks. Super smooth drive and no issues at all.
Johnathan made the rental process convenient and easy. Great car that was definitely a fuel saver that got us around the island. Thank you for renting out your car.
Awesome experience. Super easy way to rent a car. Highly recommend Zenon and his CR-V.
Nicholas is very friendly and punctual. The CRV-V was spotlessly cleaned and well maintained. We put in about 500 miles in the week. No problems and probably got over 30 miles per gallon. He is very glad to give you information about things to see and restaurant recommendations. When I come to the island again I would surely use his car again. So much more convenient than using the major car rental companies. Nicholas is doing a very good job.
Had difficulty finding a van.. but who needed one when this car seats up to 7! Price was also reasonable as well. Car is super comfortable and owner responds to messages quickly. Would definitely rent from owner again if I ever needed a larger vehicle!
The car was in great shape and Erick couldn’t be nicer and more helpful. Without reservation, I would absolutely recommend Erick and his rental.
This car was absolutely perfect for our trip, super nice and clean and the whole process was super easy. Would definitely rent from Jeff again!
Very smooth trip from start to finish, car was impeccable and Bjorn was extremely responsive at all times - would definitely rent from her again in the future!
Clean, easy to drive car that got us around the Big Island :) Steve was helpful and responsive, would recommend renting his car!
Excellent communication throughout our rental. I couldn’t have asked for a better delivery. The car was impeccably cleaned, great on gas, and a joy to drive.
Perfect car for the island! Communication was easy. We rented the cooler and it made such a difference to bring to the beach and our long drives!
Jeff was extremely communicative and the car was in perfect condition. It was easy to find and pickup/ drop off was instantaneous making it a breeze! Jeff relieved a lot of my anxiety around using a typical rental car company.
Used the Turo app to rent a car from ugly duckling car rental for Hawaii and everything went very smooth. Had no issues picking up the car or dropping it off. I would definitely rent from them again.
Kristina was absolutely wonderful. Her communication and location of the car were l clear whith picture The car was clean and drove like a Champ would highly recommend kristina to anyone.
Stress-free and convenient. We had an amazing time on the Big I in Steve's Honda HR-V we put 500 miles on this baby in just 4 days... we couldn't stop exploring! Thanks for the hospitality Steve, we will book with you again when we return.
Car was comfy, roomy, and reliable. On board GPS was quite helpful, especially in areas with spotty cell signal, but did occasionally direct us in a longer route than Google. George was very responsive and friendly. Our flight arrived a little early and he was kind enough to let us check out the car sooner than scheduled. I would definitely consider booking with George again.
Kristina was very accommodating, I had to change both pick up and drop off times. Will definitely rent with Kristina 👍
Loved booking with Jeff! He was awesome to work. He made pick up and drop off effortless for us and was very accommodating to our schedule. Car was clean, easy to drive, spacious and comfortable.
The car was clean, easy to find and ready to go. Sam was responsive and easy to coordinate with.
Amazing trip using Charlyn’s car! She was very sweet & the car was super clean and easy to navigate! Will definitely book her car again!
Rosalie was a terrific host. She provided great pick up instructions and details. Her vehicle was very clean and sanitized- it ran very smoothly and I would definitely rent with her again - her very reasonable and affordable pricing was the icing on the cake.
Bjorn was great; he accommodated our need for delivery and pick up at airport. Car was clean and comfortable. Perfect for tooling around the island.
Lisa was a great host. Great communication, easy transactions on both sides. Vehicle performed as expected, well taken care of and suited our needs perfectly. If you are looking for a car on the big island, Lisa would be who I would look to first.
Loved this small but roomy car. Perfect for getting around the island. The apple car play was awesome as well.
Jeff was wonderful. The car is literally brand new in pristine condition and fit my entire family of six adults and one baby in a car seat comfortably. Jeff made pick up and drop off extremely easy and convenient for us.
The HR-V was great to get around the island. It was roomy enough to hold all of our luggage, enough ground clearance to not have to worry about any road conditions, and enough power(discovering sport mode was a game changer) to handle the mountainous terrain. Considering all the mountain climbing it gets very impressive gas mileage as well. The complimentary add on of the beach equipment also came in handy on more than one occasion. To top it all off, Shawn and his dad who was assisting him were very helpful and humorous. The airport pickup couldn't have been any easier. Thank you again to Shawn and everyone who was a part of our vehicle rental.
Bjorn’s car was perfect for our trip. Picked it up at the airport. It was clean and felt brand new. He gave us a few tips for the island and was there if we had any questions. Thanks so much, see you next time we come over from Maui! Aloha!
Really nice car. Jeff had the car for pickup very close to the airport. Everything went smoothly. Highly recommend.
Delivered on time, very clean car and car seat. Definitely enjoyed the lane keeping feature this crv has. Easy to communicate. Thanks!
Pick up and drop off was easy! Bjorn was very thorough and clear with instructions. Quick to respond and very considerate and accommodating as well! Car was very clean and got us all around the island. Thanks again Bjorn!
Alfred made everything easy. The car was great, super clean! It even has ACC and lane keeping assist! The beach gear was all new and priced very well.
Lia’s car was in awesome condition, she also kept beach towels and a helpful guide for places around big island.
So nice and accommodating! The Pilot is brand new and drives great! Could not be happier!
Zenon's CR-V got us everywhere we wanted to go on big island. A very comfortable vehicle and surprisingly good gas mileage for the hilly terrain. Very good communication and smooth pick up and drop off process. Would highly recommend!
This vehicle outperformed my expectations! Very clean, excellent condition, and came with fun items for the beach! Kristina is amazing. Her communication is lightning fast and she was very accommodating when our plans shifted towards the end of our trip. I will definitely book with her again when we return and would highly recommend her for anyone visiting the Big Island. Thank you Kristina!
TJ was great with communication- prompt and effective. The vehicle was clean and efficient. We had a slight hiccup with the trunk intermittently not opening but It was no biggie for us, made TJ aware. Pick up and drop off was simple! Thanks TJ!
Nia was very responsive and provided clear instructions. Being our first time using Turo, we had no expectations but would gladly do it again with her. We had a fantastic trip!
Jeff was very accommodating, had clear instructions, and made the whole process very easy.
On our August 2021 vacation to Kona we used Turo for the first time and rented a car from Kristina. We found Turo to be very easy to use. We were able to select a car that we liked with features we wanted. The host, Kristina, was very accommodating. She answered all our questions about the car and what to expect. The car was a front wheel drive 2018 Honda CRV. We were able to go pretty much every where except down to Waimea Valley or up to Monakea. The long drives between Kona and Hilo were very comfortable in this well equipped air conditioned vehicle. It also had all weather mat that made for easy cleanup. Kristina made arrangements to meet us at the airport, with a fallback plan to leave the car with the keys in a lock box. Kristina was extremely nice, giving us tips on things to see and places to eat. The car was very clean, drove like new, fuel efficient, and reliable. When it was time to return the car, Kristina worked with our schedule. We could not have asked for better concierge level service. Overall we would recommend Turo to a friend and we especially recommend Kristina if you happen to be in Kona. Kristina gets a five star rating from my wife and I for having been an outstanding host, providing a fantastic car, and giving us great value for our vacation dollars.
Absolutely, 1000% would recommend to anyone and everyone I know. Thank you for everything. Mahalo!
Had the best time!! Rebecca was so welcoming and even provided an umbrella for the beach and a cooler!! Next time we visit the big island I hope this vehicle and Rebecca will be available!! 10 stars!!
Rebecca was great. The vehicle was nice, and the extras she provided were so nice to have. Take up the manta ray snorkeling offer— you won’t get a better price for that absolutely amazing experience.
Kristina was awesome! This was our first Turo rental and we could not have been happier. She was quick to communicate, provided suggestions for our stay, checked in to make sure everything was OK and... (I could go on and on)! Car was nice and fit our family of 5 with luggage. The car portion of the rental was great but it was Kristina that made a "car rental" a memorable experience.
