You guys are amazing. Mahalo ʻoukou. So good to know we rented from such a nice kanaka, you don’t get that from other rental companies. And then to also be invited for kanikapila? So maika’i! Mahalo nunui!

Very responsive and responsible host! We appreciated that, especially since we didn't want to get stuck on the Big Island during a rental car shortage! Your car reservation is only as good as the host you have. We were shocked to read other people were left stranded by low-rate hosts. Not us! Mahalo Vasyl!
Diane S.- 26 June 2021
Vastly is GREAT! Although we had issues with the original SUV, Vasyl exchanged our car, without inconveniencing us at all, gave us a partial refund and was totally apologetic. He is THE nicest man. We will definitely use him again when we are back on the Big Island!

Always enjoy the Evoque, but read car reviews for that. Delia was an awesome host — responsive and timely. Even with traditional rental companies steps away, this was a better experience.

BEST TRIP EVER!!! And it was ALL thanks to Ron’s Hyundai getting us from Hilo airport, to Volcanoes National Park (we stayed at KMC), to Mauna Kea Visitor Center (amazing short hike & view), to waterfalls & black sand beach! Ron was so kind & responsive. My family of 4 were huge fans of his Hyundai. Both my husband & I wish we owned one. The kids loved the back captain seats, AC & seat warmers. It was so smooth & easy! Also plenty of room in the back for our coolers, gear, luggage, etc. Ron made the drop off at the airport super easy & is even adding a nice Ford Pick up, a Ford Shelby Mustang and a Honda Civic to his fleet. We will definitely rent from Ron again especially because now his Turo vehicles will be easily accessible from the airport. This was our first Turo rental and first trip to the Big Island…I’m so grateful we came upon Ron!

Subaru Crosstrek 2021

We had a great trip with the vehicle and no complaints on our adventures throughout the island. Great gas mileage, super important as gas prices are definitely not cheap in Hawaii. I will say that we received the car pretty dirty. I assume there wasn’t enough time to clean the car after the previous renters dropped it off. The inside of the car was very dirty (dirt, sand, leaves, and fingerprints) and definitely wasn’t “Covid cleaned” but we wiped everything down. Had to pay $15 for parking despite it being advertised as “free pick up”however Allison assured me she would pay me back via Venmo. The images of the car are also not recent, we picked up the car with a lot of damage (scratches, dents, puncture holes) on the passenger side and the hood mainly. Just make sure you take good pictures prior to starting the trip as the images posted are not an accurate representation. All in all — have no complaints. Allison responded in a timely manner and like I said, assured to pay for the parking. Would recommend — Subarus are very reliable cars.

Subaru Outback 2017

Lovely vehicle- smooth, handles like you’d hope from a Subaru. Vehicle had good gas mileage, no issues- clean, well appointed. Good communication with host- he had to cancel first vehicle but offered another for same price. Only Turo “glitch” and not host’s fault: I got a message indicating cancellation of trip rental thru Turo,and I panicked. While trying to rebook something else, I couldn’t because the trip hadn’t finished cancelling so I called customer support as suggested in the app. The agent called the host, and was able to clarify- the host was switching to a different vehicle, unbeknownst to me- Turo might consider tightening up communication vs sending canned message saying “the host had to cancel your trip, let’s find you another car…” Later, Paul indicated when he was running late with drop off and was clear about location to meet him once he was able to meet. He also pointed out useful features to this tricked out ride (seemed super fancy to me, driver of a 2007 Pathfinder ;) and away we went. Thank you Paul for the use of your ride. Our trip to Big Island was enhanced by being able to cruise distances easily!!

Epimenio’s Trailblazer was awesome! We booked it last minute and he accepted it. His vehicle fits 5 comfortably and has lots of amenities for a compact SUV! He even included unlimited WIFI which was awesome for our 2 year old to keep busy watching shows online while we drove through the island where there was poor service for our cell phones! We were stoked with the pickup and drop off as well, it’s right at the Hilo airport! No need to spend extra money to catch a taxi to somewhere to pick up the car, it’s right there when you get there, no waiting around! And most of all if you need any assistance Epimenio is extremely quick to respond and that is huge when renting on Turo! Thanks Epimenio!!!! We will definitely rent from you again when we are back on island!

I had a great experience renting thru Turo and would definitely do so again! I was able to pick the car up directly from the airport without having to wait in long rental car lines. I also liked the fact that you know exactly what car you’re getting compared to a rental car agency. The entire process was very easy and I would highly recommend.

This was my first time renting via Turo. Thomas was awesome! He was responsive to my questions and request, the car was super clean and he made it really convenient by having the car available to pick up at the Hilo airport. We needed to extend and he was accommodating and made the process easy. Highly recommended. We will be using him again.

The Jeep was great for getting around the island. It was clean when we picked it up. The best reason, however, I would say to use the Hightower's jeep is because of them. They were very friendly and easy to work with. They checked on us throughout our stay and offered suggestions. I would rent from them again.😁

Cadillac XT5 2021

We rented the car for one day and night. Codi was very responsive and punctual. We had to return the car a little earlier than the scheduled time. She was very helpful and made it flexible for us. As a 2021 Cadillac, the car is in great condition and equipped with all necessary modern tech packages. Inside is very clean. There is a virtual panel shows in the driver’s view which is kind of fancy. Gas consuming was economic for this type of car. We drove around the volcanic national park went up to the Mauna Kea visitor center and it cost us a little less than one tank of the gas. Will recommend Codi‘s Cadillac to friends :)

Great for the price and got us to where we needed to go. However, it didn’t seem to have been cleaned from the group before there were chopsticks, water bottles, and itineraries left in the car. The drivers side door was damaged which she let us know when we picked up the vehicle but it was hard to close. She mentioned this was getting fixed. Then the check tire pressure light was on the whole time. I messaged her about it and she said they were filled prior to the trip and they never seemed low the light just seemed to needed to be reset.

Toyota 4Runner 2017

Brian’s 4Runner was perfect for our Big Island Trip. The car is well maintained, clean interior and exterior. There is quite some distance between places, some partially unpaved roads, and lots of inclines in Hilo and on Big Island, so having a reliable, safe car is a key. Brian’s 4Runner covers all that and more. For us, the huge plus, that was very surprising was the gas! This being a hybrid, it definitely saved on the fuel. Communication with Brian was easy and he was accommodating with pick up and drop off. Overall, I would highly recommend renting this for Big Island trip.

Scott was VERY reponsive and went above & beyond with our needs. Prior to getting the car, I inquired to see if he happen to have 2 car seats. Within minutes he replied back saying he could take care of it for us & sent a picture of a seat to make sure if would work for us. When we picked the car up, the directions & pictures sent to get it we're easy to follow & the car itself was nice & clean. A couple of days into our trip, we thought the key fob battery was dying & reached out. He had extra batteries already in the console & offered to drive out to us to give us another key. We HIGHLY RECOMMEND Scott & his vehicle!!!

Such a fun car to drive. Kept me wishing I owned a car like this. It was really tough to give it back because I still wanted to drive it around. This car was immaculate. Very clean inside and out. Our host Alealani was the best! She is very accommodating especially with our last minute changes on our trip. Alealani was very quick to respond to messages. She is very easy to work and communicate with. I highly recommend Alealani and her vehicle for your next trip to Hilo, Hawaii!!!
