Amazing way to avoid the hassle of standard car rental. Car was clean and in good condition. Having the beach chairs and umbrella was perfect. Mahalo Anwar!
Everything worked like clockwork, no waiting lines to pickup or drop off cars, no gouging like the car rental companies...highly recommend galina as you host, will rent from her again.
Super easy rental process, TJ was helpful and responsive with easy to understand directions for drop off & pick up! Car was clean, new and great condition, perfect for our family vacation for the week.
Lauren's Jeep was great. Easy check in, great communication, and "new car smell" to boot! Gets great gas mileage as well. It took us everywhere we wanted to go. Exceptionally clean. Much easier than dealing with a rental car agency. Would rent again in a heartbeat!
This was my first time using Turo and I wasn’t sure what to expect. I booked Lauren’s Jeep super last minute because there weren’t any available at the traditional rental companies. They had some SUVs but you never know what you are going to end up with. Not only was I able to choose a Jeep, but Lauren’s Wrangler is a Rubicon! When I booked, Lauren messaged me directions right away and had the Jeep waiting for me when I landed. It was parked right across the street from the baggage claim. In Lihue I always rent from Avis or Enterprise and this really was so much easier. It saved me at least 20-30 minutes compared to how long it usually takes me to walk over and wait to catch the rental car shuttle. With the current ongoing situation with COVID-19 the interior being clean is paramount and Lauren’s Jeep was spotless. It was the perfect vehicle for my trip. Lauren made my first experience with Turo go super smooth. Her communication and directions were perfect. I come to Kauai often for work, and to visit family and I can’t see myself renting from a traditional company again. This experience was just so much easier and better. I needed a nice bouquet of flowers and she was able to recommend an amazing new little shop, The Pua Bar, at Kilohana in Lihue. (The girls there were also super helpful and made a beautiful bouquet and I was able to get a fresh locally made lei!) I highly recommend Lauren, the Jeep was awesome, and getting the local attention, touch and insight is something you can’t get from the traditional companies. 5 Stars!
It was so great to have a car to explore the island; the jeep made it so much better! It was clean and tidy and had enough space for our luggage and beach gear during our trip. Ethan was communicative about pick up/drop off and also gave us tips about gas prices and car washing sites before needing to return the car. Highly recommend!
Patrick was awesome! Super helpful and responsive throughout. And given the recent rental shortage in Kauai, Turo was a great option I had not utilized before. I’d argue that the Turo experience was better than through a rental agency.
While in Kauai Alii Rental Cars via Turo was great. Great customer service and no waiting at the rental car counter. Would highly recommend! Car was ready and waiting for us in the airport lot.
Super easy pick up at Lihue airport. Very clean. We had. no issues at all. Keep in mind this is not a new rental car from a major company. We chose Turo due to the fact major rental companies are renting cars out that they don’t have. Many people have been stranded at the airport and their hotels due to lack of rentals. Alli was very reliable and very easy. We will choose local again through Turo.
Great jeep! Easy to take the top up and down. Very easy pick up and drop off at the airport in Lihue. Jacquelyn was very responsive and helpful with any questions.
Anwar made the car rental process a breeze. The vehicle was well maintained and easy to access upon arrival in Kauai. Communication was excellent as well. Will definitely rent again.
Nathan made it very easy and convenient for us to get a rental car. Way easier than going through a rental car agency. The jeep was perfect for us!
We LOVED this Jeep! Perfect for cruising the island and the mountainous terrain. Working with Anwar was a pleasure. Good communication and smooth rental process. Mahalo!
Tosh was great to deal with and the Jeep is a blast! Fit our family of 5 great. So much better than using a big car rental company. Highly recommend renting from Tosh!
Anwar made renting from him super easy. The jeep we rented was great, less expensive than rental car companies, and easier to pick up and drop off. Thanks Anwar!
Yaeme was friendly and very helpful. The service she provided was better than Alamo. Pick up was easy and right outside the airport. Drop off was even better. The next day I picked up my long term rental and I asked Yaeme if she could meet me there for the drop off. She said 'absolutely'! The car was fabulous. Very clean and in great shape. I highly recommend them on Turo
First time using Turo, had never heard of it until a month before HI trip found out there were no rental cars on the island. Much like VRBO: ur a captive audience, have to pay elevated market prices, but beats walking and clearly the demand for cars WAY higher than supply. Will use again when in same crunch. My car provider TJ was super helpful right from the start and explained how Turo works and gave me the peace of mind to avoid stressing. I had heard some rental reservations in HI have fallen thru when they can’t produce cars and existing clients don’t return vehicle, so ur screwed. TJ was always very responsive, his car was 10 steps outside baggage and he was “on it” ready to remotely unlock my car upon me sending upload ID etc to Turo site. He couldn’t have been a better “host” /communicator. Car price was exceptionally steep but so we’re all other Turo options, again, market forces at play. I’d definitely “rent” from TJ again. Thx!
Nate was able to drop off the car at our hotel, for our convenience. Which was extremely helpful on our situation! Had a great trip, the Jeep had everything needed. Drop off was seamless as well, would definitely rent from Nate again the next time we’re back in beautiful Kauai!
Melvins jeep was fantastic! We had so much care free fun beach hopping that we asked to extend our rental an extra day. Melvin was quick to respond and approve of our request. Would 10 out of 10 recommend this awesome jeep to anyone and will certainly be back in touch next time on island!
Nathaniel was amazing! Nice, courteous, and quick to respond. Also, went above and beyond when I made a mistake on the reservation. Highly recommend!
Anwar left very clear instructions and even upgraded us to a larger vehicle. He was very responsive and made our trip super easy by getting to skip the rental car agency. We will definitely try to book with Anwar again when we return!
Great experience renting Corey's Jeep! He met us at the airport when our flight landed and then let us drop the car off later than we planned!
This jeep was the absolute perfect car to rent in Kauai. It was such a cute little car and it really fit the island vibe. We loved it!
The Jeep Patriot was exactly what this trip needed! It was in excellent shape and took us everywhere we needed from the bottom west of the island, all the way up north and back! Mike was very attentive and accommodating, and having the beach chairs in the car was perfect for little stops on the beach! We would absolutely rent from Mike again!
Scott and Sarah were amazing hosts! They offered to drop off and pick up the jeep from our hotel and provided us with recommendations on what to do on all of the islands we were visiting. They gave us clear instructions on how to remove some of the top panels from the jeep and even left us a little welcome package with some water, hand sanitizer and cookies in the car! Would definitely recommend renting their jeep!
I rented the Jeep for 8 days early Oct/21. Vehicle pick up process was very smooth. Exact location of the vehicle with pass code was provided before I landed and the Jeep was conveniently parked in the Airport parking lot right across the baggage claim area. Pickup and drop off was a breeze. Jeep was super clean inside and out. It was sanitized inside and was stocked up with a packet full of face masks, sanitizers and few bottles of water. Jeep is fitted with huge all terrain tires and was fun to drive in sunshine and rain with confidence. Also, it has retractable roof with one touch open/close which we enjoyed a lot. It was a real head turner with those aggressive looking tires and military green color. Saikat was very responsive over txt whenever we had few doubts and was in constant touch to make sure we were comfy with the car. The overall experience with the Jeep and co-ordination with Saikat went very smooth ... well beyond expectations and would highly recommend this Jeep.
Tosh’s Jeep was awesome - a perfect vehicle for a trip to Kauai. It was parked conveniently at the Lihue airport, had a large enough fuel tank to drive all over the island, and plenty of space for beach equipment, bags and people. Would definitely recommend!!
The jeep was really fun to drive around the Island. The vehicle is in very good condition & worked perfectly! Tosh was very easy to work with and always responded immediately to any questions. Pick up and drop off was incredibly easy. I could see the vehicle from baggage claim before my bags arrived. No hassles waiting in line at a rental car counter. I would highly recommend renting this jeep and will do so on future visits to Kauai.
We were so happy to find Michael’s car on Turo. It made our island experience even better. It was helpful to have it part of the time as it was really needed for our extended stay. Michael was clear, communicative, and flexible. We really appreciated it! I know the prices of rental cars are expensive on the island, but we thought it was worth it for the vacation and Michael made it less painful because his car car was great and in pristine condition & he was so very helpful! Mahalo Michael!
Devin was awesome and so was his Jeep! I will definitely use his car again if we go back.
Galina’s jeep was perfect for scooting around the island. It has good clearance and knobby tires which was useful in the wet and sometimes potholed roads of Kauai. Pickup and drop off was seamless and quick with Galina having great communication throughout. Would rent again from Galina in a heartbeat! Thanks!
Excellent experience! Very clean and maintained jeep. Very responsive owner. You can’t go wrong in renting any vehicle from Nathaniel.
We had a great time in the Jeep! Dominik was super helpful and was very responsive to messages. Vehicle was super clean when we arrived. No doubt we will will certainly rent from him again if we come back to the island. Thanks!
Bradley’s Jeep is a great way to see the island! Bradley’s Jeep is in perfect shape just like the pictures and he gets back to you quickly and is helpful and even gives you suggestions! Thanks Bradley will rent again from you when we come back sometime!
We had an amazing time seeing beautiful Kauai in Mary’s Jeep. It was easy to drive, spacious, and very clean. Mary made pick up and drop off extremely simple and convenient for us. We would definitely rent from Mary again.
Super smooth experience, very communicative&friendly host, modern and clean car! Would recommend to anyone over a rental car. Mahalo!
It was a pleasure to hire Susie’s brand new Jeep. Contact pick up and drop off was a breeze and Susie answered all messages we had before, during and after our trip. The car ran really well and had bonus of CarPlay/Android Auto. Would recommend host and car to anyone
Jeep was awesome and David was a fantastic communicator. Would definitely rent from again!
Jeep was perfect for our time on the island! Would definitely rent again. Easy airport pickup and drop off.
Overall a great experience. Met at the agreed upon location and the handoff was seamless. Jeep was very clean and well kept. Would def recommend renting from Susie!
Jeep was great to get around in Kauai. Picking up and dropping off was easy. The only problem was finding a car wash close to the airport after 6pm. We cleaned the inside out before leaving for the day, so that helped. Would definitely lease David’s Jeep again.
Easy pick-up, accommodating, quick to respond and the car was as described at a fair price. Rent with confidence!
Great vehicle to view the island! We had 5 of us and had plenty of room with our carry on luggage. And the extra space made outtings easy. Would happily use Ben's Jeep again!
Such a wonderful experience. First time using Turo, Melvin was exceptional with providing detailed instructions upon retrieving the vehicle. It was such an effortless process. Way better then car rentals.
Lauren was super helpful and made this process so easy for us! In addition to the vehicle rental, she went above and beyond to offer her advice/knowledge of the island to ensure we had a great trip. She was very responsive and as a first time Turo user, made navigating the pre-trip steps seamless. The Jeep was amazing and made exploring around the island extremely enjoyable! I’d highly recommend using Lauren and her Jeep for any adventure around Kauai!
Amazing hospitality, easy to communicate with, and helpful. Alii Rental Cars is top notch.
I had an amazing time with Nathaniel and his Jeep Wrangler. Pick up and check out went smoothly, 10x better than any traditional rental car process. Outstanding and flawless experience.
Wonderful rental experience from pick up to drop off. Couldn’t have asked anything better. The Jeep was great and they were very specific about how to pick up and drop off. Our first time using Turo and it was so easy. Alii is just so great to rent from.
Cameron was a great, responsive host. It was our first trip to Kauai and his Jeep was the ideal car to cruise the island with! The 4x4 big wheels and peeling back the soft top made some amazing views and a memorable experience!
First time Turo renter and it was a great experience with TJ and his vehicle. Everything happened exactly as advertised. Communication was great and TJ was very helpful in closing out the trip at the end. Was nice to drive a really nicely furnished and featured Grand Cherokee for our time on the island vs. a standard basic rental car. Thanks TJ.
We had a fantastic trip experience thanks to Alii Rental Cars stepping in and saving the day when the car we had reserved had been involved in a disabling accident the day before we arrived to pick up our car. They stepped right up with a new upgraded vehicle, and our reservation went off without any inconvenience. I would definitely recommend them highly, and would absolutely rent from them again.
Extremely easy pick up and drop off. Car was perfect for the roads on Kauai for a couple or family with young kids. We will definitely rent from again when we come back to the island.
Great experience! Nathan made renting his Jeep so easy. He is quick to respond when communication is needed. I would highly recommend Nathan and his Jeep.
Adam’s jeep was the perfect car to get us around the island. Great communication and efficiency when checking in/out.
The car was impeccable!Corey communicates clearly. Really recommend renting his car.
Great experience renting from Db! The car was waiting for us at the airport and was immaculate with a full tank of gas. With four adults and four BIG bags it was the perfect choice for us. We pulled in and left it in the airport parking lot as directed with no hassle of a rental car return or shuttle. Couldn’t have asked for a better experience!
