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!
Adrianna was awesome! I had never done Turo before and was hesitant but because the Big Island had no rental cars available from traditional rental companies I had to go with Turo and Adianna. You know what? When I come back to the Big Island I will only rent a car from Adrianna! She communicated great, easy pick up, easy drop off, and the car was great. With her there was no rental car shuttle, no lines, no BS “up-selling”, so much smoother and faster than traditional rental car places. The car (Kia Soul) worked great for a family of 4 and was only tight to/from airport. After that it took us everywhere we needed to go in comfort. Use Adrianna, you wont regret it!
Claude’s Kia was awesome! Great way to get around Kona and has all the essential smart features to make travel easy. Claude was so great and made the rental process seamless. Highly recommend!
I would give this car 4 stars only because it wasn’t a perfect vehicle. But I gave it 5 stars because I felt like it was a great rental especially for what I paid for it. During Covid times when rental cars were scarce and when you found one, it costed an arm and a leg, I found this one at last minute and it was the most affordable price for the type of vehicle I was looking for. The first thing I noticed was the gas pedal doesn’t press smoothly. I drove it barefoot so I felt a barely noticeable stick at several points as I pressed the pedal. I asked my husband to try and drive it to see if he felt the same thing. He drove it with sneakers on and didn’t feel it at all 🤷🏽♀️. It didn’t affect the driving and it didn’t feel like a safety issue at all. I just wanted to note that. The car was very clean and we loved the sun shade it came with. It helped for us to find the car a lot easier when we parked it. The windshield was obviously cleaned but whatever they cleaned it with left streaks that made it an annoyance when we drove in the rain. Luckily I had my Norwex glass cloth so when we got to the store, I wet my cloth with the rain and cleaned the inside and outside of the windshield with it and then it was crystal clear. Also, the buttons on the drivers door that controls all windows does not all function well. The front passenger, and the the back driver’s side window buttons can roll the windows down, but they do not roll the windows back up. You have to actually roll the windows up using the buttons on the door itself. The other window buttons work properly. I didn’t think these were really inconvenient but when it started to rain, I tried to roll the windows up while I was driving and after a few tries, I finally told my husband and child they had to roll the windows up themselves. The instructions for pick up and drop off was easy and very convenient because it was at the airport. She was already there at the airport when I landed and she met me at the exact time to drop off. She was also extremely friendly and easy to communicate with.
Pick up and drop off was smooth. Kaleo is very accommodating. This was easier than a rental car companies process. Definitely recommend Kaleo’s cars.
OMG! Such a breeze to rent with Bethany! Airport delivery and contactless. She is very responsive and was amazing! Car (Kia Soul) is super economical on gas, just enough room for our family, and fun and easy to drive! Will definitely use her again. Aloha!!!!
Marisa made the rental process simple and was great at communicating along the way! Also, super affordable rental and it comes in handy if you simply need a car to drive around for a week!
We had a wonderful time renting Dene's Kia Seltos! Dene provided many amenities, including a cooler, reusable bags, and face masks. The Kia even included a trash can in the back which came in handy. All these little touches made the rental a great experience. The Seltos runs well and has a bunch of nice features, like wireless apple carplay and android auto. Everything ran like a dream!
Kalena was a great Turo host. He was very accommodating and communicative. I enjoyed driving his car and the tips he gave me to explore the big island. Would recommend him to anyone interested in renting a car with great customer service.
Dene was wonderful! Very quick at replying and gave very clear instructions on how to find the car at the airport. The car was very clean and the perfect size for traveling with four people. The cooler in the back is optional and takes up space in the back, but I would recommend it if you are planning on bringing food with you on longer drives or beach days. It was also perfect for bringing food back from the farmer's market. Overall, great experience. Definitely saves you the time that you would be waiting at the rental car kiosk.
This host has my highest recommendations. I could not have asked for a more hassle free experience. I would definitely use their service again in the future and if you are looking for a good car to rent without any problems picking up or dropping off in Kona this host is the way to go.
Awesome rental! Able to pickup the car with very little difficulty. They are very responsive. Good ride.
Kaleo’s car worked great for my family and I during our stay. Pick up and drop off we’re very smooth and communication was excellent. Would definitely rent from Kaleo again. Thank you!
Great car. Tons of legroom! Fantastic gas mileage. Very clean. Overall just a great rental!
I used Dene's Kia for a 6 day vacation. It was great having the car at a reasonable price and Dene was great to coordinate with. She was responsive and even checked in with us to be sure everything was working out ok. The car was in great shape too, spotless inside and out and had full tank when we got it. We ended up having to make some last minute changes that Dene confirmed almost instantly. I was so happy with the service that we got her a gift to show our appreciation.
Wonderfully comfortable car with very smooth ride! Kaleo has an A+ for communication. THANKS!!!!! RENT THIS CAR!!
Dene was fantastic. Our friends also used Turo for the same trip and they were jealous of our experience. Dene let us borrow a cooler for the trip, grocery bags, masks, Hawaii guide book, and paid for parking. But get this, we scheduled our Turo rental through Dene a few months before our trip. Dene noticed quite a few people lowering their prices and then lowered our agreement saving us a few hundred dollars on our 8 day rental! Five stars is not enough. Dene is fair, has very clean vehicles, and helpful as well! We would use her service again and again. The Eakle’s
Michelle was super easy to coordinate with during our arrival and departure, and she helped make our trip to Hawaii a great one! This car took us to some really awesome places. We will definitely try to book with her in our future visits. Mahalo Michelle!
The car is in great shape and it was perfect for what we needed. Great communication too!
Excellent service ans expérience! Car was in excellent condition and communication with Bethany great
I personally drive the same car so the experience was great for me. I loved not having to learn how to use features of the car and it fit my family perfectly as expected.
Bethany’s car was in PRISTINE condition!!!!! loved every moment of the trip!!! thank you so much!!!!
Very friendly and helpful hosts! Car worked wonderfully and was the perfect size for hauling suitcases and getting around the island. Also great on gas. Car location at airport is easy to find by following the link to the Google maps pin.
Matt and Sarah were super helpful and accommodating. Definitely recommend renting from them. If I end up in the area again I would rent from them again.
Easy drop off & pick up. Very responsive with questions/concerns. Would rent from Kaleo again.
Excellent communication with Mariano and the experience was easie peasie:) Pick up couldn’t have been any better and the car was in great shape and exactly as described.
Perfect Car! We booked this last minute just a couple hours before arrival to Kona. The car was very clean, filled up and ready to go. The pickup location was a short walk from baggage claim. Kalena was so helpful and responsive throughout. Will look for his cars every time I’m in Kona.
Thank you Bethany, for letting us borrow your car! Great communication before and during the trip. The car was super clean and in great condition! This car runs smooth and works perfectly. Thank you again
10/10 service Car was clean and service was great Would recommend to anyone traveling to the big island
Great communication and very accomodating. Went out of his way to unlock the car when I accidentally locked my sunglasses in the car at dropoff.
Easy communication with easy pick up and drop off. An awesome car to get around Hawaii!
Communication with Kaleo was good. Pick up and drop off was easy. Car was as stated. Drove well and was very comfortable and clean.
Car was delivered timely. Excellent process and so Much more convenient than a regular car rental!Great vehicle!!! Highly recommend!!
First time using Turo! We picked up and dropped off the car in the main lot at the airport. Easy! The car was great. We had no issues and would definitely use Turo to rent a car in the future. Thanks Kaleo!
Renting Shanelle’s car could of have been smoother! Easy pick up and drop off… and the car itself was amazing… I’ve never been in a Kia Soul but I would actually consider buying one now 😂 … thanks Shanelle!
Richard’s Kia Soul was the perfect car for cruising around the Big Island. The car was there waiting for us closer than where rental cars are located. Everything in the car worked amazing including the A/C which was used quite a bit. We took the option for the beach chairs and umbrella which came in very handy especially on the black sand beaches which get quite toasty. Great host and great car!
Bethany couldn't have been more helpful and accommodating. This was our first Turo experience and it worked out very well.
Megan was super easy to reach and work with during our travels! No problem at all getting around the big island!
Convenience was top notch, contactless, was very responsive. Car unlocked remotely sand we drove off. Really cool. Kia Niro was a mileage champ! Hatchback form was great for chucking all your gear into. Wouldn't hesitate to rent from Drive In Hawaii again.
The Kia Soul was immaculate and very well taken care of. Dealing with Bethany was so easy along with the pick up and drop off. I highly recommended renting this car.
Shanel was great with responding to everything quickly and we had a very easy experience using both Turo & Brown Betty!
First time using Turo & we had a great experience with Rosbel! His Kia Soul was clean, well maintained & was fun to drive. Rosbel made it super convenient with pickup & dropoff. We will definitely rent this Kia Soul again on our next trip to the Big Island!
Everything went smooth and was a great experience overall! They were such a pleasure to work with and fast to respond
Great car to rent. The gas mileage is good and it's basically brand new. I do recommend insurance coverage through turo because most credit card companies will not cover peer to peer rentals.
It was our first Turo experience, and we couldn’t be happier with Shanelle Kia Soul. Great communication and within 5min after getting our luggage we were on our way. Would rent again. Thanks🤙🏽
Pickup and drop off went smoothly, car was conveniently left in parking lot across from arrivals. Kia Soul was clean and just big enough for the 4 of us, and has great gas mileage.
Jedd’s car is in great condition and he was a perfect host. He made everything extremely easy for us and it was really a pleasure to rent from him. Highly recommended!
Katherine is such a warm person to meet. She left a tour guide book for us in the car. This was our first time using Touro and we had a great experience renting from her!
Great brand new car with unlimited miles! We had a blast driving around to see all the beauty Big Island has to offer! The self check-in for the car was an easy process, we just had to look for it in the parking lot after the owner left it. Checkout was the same. Its our first time using Turo and we're grateful there are options available like this now that there are rental car shortages all over the island. We can't wait to come back to see beautiful Hawaii! Thank you!
