Super easy pick up and drop off at the airport, and the owner was super quick to respond to my messages. They even left $3 to cover parking when I picked up the car. Would totally rent from them again!
Elizabeth J.- March 23, 2021
What an awesome service. Jeffrey and his team @Drive in Hawaii went above and beyond and had the best customer service I've ever experienced from a rental car service. I am a frequently traveler and travel writer and I will definitely rent again! Mahalo!!

Brandon’s Sentra was a great car to drive around the island! It was our first time at the big island and it was so helpful having a car to beach/hike hop. The car was great on gas we only filled up twice and were able to loop around the entire island!! We ended up extending our car rental and Brandon was super flexible.

This zippy little bug was perfect for getting around the Island! Leah was super flexible, and having this fun car to drive while I was in Hawai'i made my time there even more enjoyable. People are also friendlier on the road, when you're in a "local" vehicle, and not in a rental car from the airport. Highly recommend. Both the car, and Leah. Mahalo!

I rented this car because it was the only one available. That's how I found out how much fun it is to drive :) It's great being able to see all around. It was fun making children smile. My only issue was it got cold and windy at higher elevation. Bring a jacket.

This was a great choice for zipping along the island! The car was clean and ready on time, and fit the 5 of us just fine. We had it all day and barely used any gas, and the Apple navigation system works better than my brand new 2020 vehicle back home! Josh was responsive and invested, letting us know that if we ran into any trouble with the car or lost the keys, to just get a hold of him. I’m a new fan of this app, and these budget friendly choices!

I can't say enough good about my experience renting this car from Brent. The car was clean, well maintained, and fuel efficient.

He even picked us up at the airport, told us about the island, and made some great suggestions for hikes, food, etc. Thanks again, Brent. Mahalo!

This is basically a brand new car and it’s super fun to ride around the Big Island in it. It handles well, was safe in the rain (very important here), and the electronics were easy to use. Having the screen show maps and directions made life a lot easier. Mahikenani was very communicative, kind, and easy to work with. At the end of our trip when we were dropping off the car, our Lyft didn’t show up. In the dark and rain we were scrambling, calling every cab company around to find a way to make our flight, but her sister saved our butts by giving us a ride herself! Awesome family. 10/10 would again!!!!

This car was great for getting us around Big Island and we were able to visit many spots all around the island. In some rugged areas we had to park and get locals to take us further in their trucks, but that's not hard to get done. It's comfortable ride and easy to drive as well, would highly recommend.

Ronald was great! He made me feel at home the minute I stepped off the plane. He went out of his way to give me the locals’ perspective on what to do (and not to do) before I even left to go to Hawaii. I had a small fender bender with his car and he was nothing but helpful in resolving the issue in the most friendly manner. Consider yourself lucky if you are so fortunate as to be able to use his car.

Lahi was extremely flexible and saved our tail. I’m sure she’d be the first to tell you the car isn’t anything great but it’s a perfect little car to get you to the market or beach and back. Price was great and again, the owner makes it well worth it. Would recommend!

What a thrill, a fun way to explore. I would recommend if you plan to take it throughout Kona, however if you plan to head north there are very strong winds coming off the mountain and often rain towards Waimea, maybe consider another option if your trip takes you there. As you can see in the photos this is a manual transmission! If you know how to drive stick, it’s a blast, plenty of power to get up and down the hills.
