Ford Mustang 2016
The mustang was the perfect ride for us at Hilo. The ‘automatic’ soft top was great for the changing weather. Mary Anne and Kristian were lovely and were perfect for our first Turo experience.

Jeffrey is very accommodative, flexible and reliable to rent a car from. He responded to my desperate request to rent his car in a blink of an eye. He also facilitate in whatever need I require during my six days trip here in Hilo. He even gave me some tips and precautions when traveling in Hilo. Could not ask for more from Jeffrey. I truly enjoyed the ride with his vehicle.. Thumbs up for Jeffrey. Terima kasih banyak ( thank you very much in Bahasa Indonesia)

WOW! Amazing truck, amazing people to rent from. Mary Anne and Kristian were great at communicating and so friendly. They picked me up at the airport, and grabbed the truck from my hotel in Hilo (so much better than rental car company!). That was the nicest truck I've ever driven. We took it up Mauna Kea instead of waiting on the long tour bus. I can't say enough great things about their hospitality and upkeep of their beautiful truck. HIGHLY RECOMMEND! Wouldn't have done it any differently. Thank you Kristian and Mary Anne! Aloha, Luke

John is so incredibly helpful and easy to communicate with. His car "Blue Magic" definitely made for a magical trip for my family and me. We were lucky enough to avoid the Hilo rains but John was kind enough to provide us with a few umbrellas as well. The car ran incredibly well and was perfect for our weekend cruising around Hilo and Wainaku. It's also very enjoyable to drive and because of its very cool and distinct color, it's very easy to spot in the parking. I would definitely recommend blue magic and renting from John! Overall excellent experience altogether!

My experience renting Judah’s car was on point. First off communication and pickup/drop-off could not have been easier at Hilo. His car is a ton of fun to drive and a true classic wrangler that will give you that island feel. Couldn’t have had a better experience.

Nissan Rogue 2012
This is the perfect car to rent in Hawaii! If you are like me, you might be thinking "I don't like SUV's, I like sedans & sports cars that sit close to the road". But let me tell you, Hawaii's roads aren't that great, and the extra ground clearance is a real godsend. The Rogue doesn't feel like you are teetering high off the ground, it feels stable and planted. The seats are excellent and there is ample space for 4 adults and their stuff. The car has an overhead camera view which makes parking, even parallel parking, super easy. The navigation is nice since it frees up your phone so you dont waste your battery. The front seats are more comfortable than some. Luxury car seats. The fuel economy was pretty good too! Unless you need 4wd or a bigger car, you should rent this car for your next trip to the big island. The pick up and drop off at Hilo Airport were painless.

This was my first time renting a car through Turo and Jeffrey made it the best experience. I rented his 2008 Honda Odyssey which was perfect because it accommodated all of my group that stayed in Hilo this past weekend. It was very roomy and clean, and it drove us from place to place with no problems at all. Jeffrey even included a multiple port car charger, an auxiliary cord so we could listen to our own music, and a cooler, beach mat, and umbrella. They all came in handy! I will most definitely rent from him again. Mahalo nui loa Jeffrey!

Dmitri C. - May 11, 2018

Micah's prius was a great car to take my family around the island. We drove it all over, crossing saddle road many times without a problem, and the gas mileage was great! My family even got a little attached to the Prius and gave it the name Jerry. Micah was also excellent to work with. I will definitly rent again the next time I need a car.

Jeffrey provided a newer vehicle than originally reserved(2017 vs 2006), it was clean and functioned perfectly. Vehicle was waiting for my family when we arrived and for a small fee ($25) he agreed to pickup at a different aiport since my family flew into Hilo but out if Kona. The two child seats provided looked newer, clean and in good condition. Overall a positive experience. I would recommend Jeffrey to friends traveling to the Big Island.

We loved the car for our short road trips around the island and was the perfect addition to our trip.

Sarah O. - May 1, 2018
Toyota Camry 2012
Exceptionally clean. Convenient pickup right across from airport exit. Nice amenities in the vehicle, though lack of a backup camera on a ‘12 model year a bit disappointing. Car has a high trunk deck (not Judah’s fault!), so it’s hard to see objects behind. Powerful engine, with good fuel economy for such a spacious car: I got around 30–31 mpg. Excellent acceleration for passing on smaller highways. Vehicle needs new front rotors (you do a lot of braking on the Big Island as almost any highway or road is going up and down...steeply down in some cases); Judah has said as of today he’ll address that issue. My first Turo rental. If they’re all like this, the concept and the Judah...are winners.
Marc C. - April 24, 2018
Honda Civic 2017
The car was awesome. It drove really well and it was super clean. Kale was so nice and made picking up and dropping off the car super easy. We will definitely rent a car from him again!

Amazing all around. Within 10 minutes of stepping off the plane, I received a message from Ruthie. Her vehicle was left right across from baggage claim. She sent along the lock box number and within minutes I was on my way. Return was just as simple. I locked the keys in the box and messaged Ruthie the parking location. You can waste an hour in the rental car line or do it this way. Vehicle was clean and well maintained.

I rarely write reviews. However, I wanted to write one for jeff and his extraordinary service during our stay in the big island in aug 2017. Jeff was very flexible in regards to our pickup and return of the car. On top of that, the vehicle was clean, and drove great! From the minute we landed, till leaving the big island, jeff was there every step of the way helping make this a beautiful and effortless trip for us. Definitely best car rental I've experienced, I will 100% rent from jeff again when I return to the big island!!

Renting car from Amber was super easy. She was very responsive and accommodating. She even let us change reservation and pick up location last minute which was super helpful. She wasn’t around so she had someone else handle the pick up/drop off and he was punctual. Car interior needs to be detailed though now, but when I return to this island again, will rent from her again.
Jeet S. - February 16, 2018
Toyota RAV4 2010
Loved renting a car from Maria. She was super helpful in sharing tips about the island and was great with communication. The car worked great for what we needed. It’s a bit old and therefore made some occasional sounds, but it was reliable and got us around just fine! Would definitely rent from Maria again if the opportunity presented itself.
Rachel G. - February 12, 2018
Honda Civic 2012
Rented Amber's Honda for our trip on Hawaii. Took it all around the island and had a great time. Good on gas and easy to drive. Amber was really great to deal with: immediately responded to questions; let us change reservation and pick car up a day before we'd originally rented it; pickup and drop off were super easy. I'd rent from her again without question. Be careful if you've never driven on the island before - roads can be rough and you need to be careful about clearances!
Joan M. - February 10, 2018
Nissan Rogue 2012
So convenient and she thought of everything. Better than being picked, or renting right at the airport desk. Amazing concept and experience!!!! Rent this car!

Aloha, Justin has really exemplified the “Aloha Spirit “ when we first met. Our Rental was cleaned inside and out. My Ohana was wondering about the rental, they said its the rims., they never seen a rental that has “bling bling”rims and they “Love it”! Buy Local!! Any way, me and my Ohana will rent from “Braddah” Justin, again! Buy Local!🌴
