The Ugly Duckling Car rental service was very attentive and was quick to always communicate with us. The car was very clean and it was nice how they included detailed photos of the car before the trip.

Easy process throughout, and the car was delivered to me. 1000-mile allowance was more than enough for what I needed for the week. The car got good gas mileage. A breeze to return and I did not have to wait in long rental car lines. Would use this service again!

If you’re looking for the best, clean, and safest cars to choose from, the best time on the island, priceless information of the island, someone that’ll assist you throughout your trip Gabriel is your man. He really outdid his self and I assure you he’ll do the same for you cause that’s just who he is. If there isn’t an answer to a question he doesn’t know he’ll make sure to find it and get back to you, As well as offer you his network of people on the island that can set things up for you. Have special requirements or an Itinerary change last moment? Rest assured he’ll do his level best to accommodate / work with you. His hospitality is like no other and a friendship is what you’ll create rather than just another car rental transaction. Definitely do not overthink it and message / call for yourself If you don’t believe me!

Mark was an excellent host. After landing in Kona and getting our luggage, all we had to do is walk across the street to the car. No shuttle bus, no lines. The car itself was perfect: clean, great gas mileage, enough zip to get up the hills, and plenty of room for two people. This was my first Turo experience and I may never go back to car rental companies again.

We really put Bryan's MX-5 through the wringer as we had it for 9 days with stays in Kailua, Waikoloa and Hilo and excursions all around the island. The only disappointing thing was that it rained more than I imagined it would during our trip so we couldn't have the top down every time we drove it. The car was very clean and drove like new. It was really nice not being one of the other typical rental cars you see everywhere on the island.

This was the first time I used Turo and it far exceeded my expectations. Nataliya and David were very communicative and accommodating. They showed us the true spirit of aloha. Using a Turo car on the big island is great because you skip the shuttle and lines at the rental car agency. We had a great experience and highly recommend.

From pickup to drop off I cannot express my satisfaction of what ease it was to rent this vehicle. Everything I needed and nothing I didn’t and with rental companies exploiting a crisis with their insane fees this Kia Soul from Kaleo turned out to be the best option. This was my first time using Turo and would rent again. Also, 105.3 The Lava is a banger for local radio.

This was our first time using the TURO app and we were slightly apprehensive at first but we had an outstanding time renting Mark’s Kia Soul and we would highly recommend this booking. Mark was friendly and responsive. We picked up the car in good condition at the airport in Kona. The car drove quite well and served us very well during our adventure, in which we circumnavigated the entire island. The car is very spacious, I am 6ft7 and the car was an easy fit. The trunk is sizable, and was able to fit all our luggage and equipment. It drove well with no issues. Mark was there when we dropped off the car at the airport and he helped us out for the checkout process. We would highly recommend booking this Kia and highly recommend getting a car for trips in the Big Island.

Car was clean and delivered quickly upon our arrival. It drove great and was very comfortable. Just one small glitch. When we were returning to the airport, we planned to stop and gas up. The person picking up the car texted me that he would fill it up and only charge me for the gas. I was charged the $10.00 refuel fee as well. I would have filled it if I'd known I was getting the extra charge. I would still rent the car again!

This was our first experience with Turo so there are things to learn, such as where to find it and also having to clean it before returning it. The car was great, cleaning was easy since basically it just requires some vacuuming, didn't need to wash the outside. Returning it was easy and if there are questions we always got immediate response making it easy. It was nice not to have to take the shuttle to a car rental. What was irritating was that we were not informed that we had to pay for parking getting out of the gate. An explanation about that would be helpful (a receipt with one dollar was left in the car but we had to pay $5 and there was confusion about it). Otherwise it was great, thank you!
