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.

Two trips to hilo from volcano and some driving in between and only used 4 gallons of gas. Great car. Very pleased.

Toyota Tacoma 2017
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

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.

Chevrolet Silverado 1500 2015
The truck was perfect for our camping trip from Waipio Valley to Waimanu Valley. The truck had no problems getting down it up the steep Waipio road. The cab had plenty of room for 6 adults, and our hiking bags all fit in the bed of the truck. I would absolutely rent again if we needed 4-wheel drive on our next Big Island trip. Ryan was on time and very easy to work with!
Molly T. - July 31, 2018

My trip to the Big Island was great and with the jeep much better. Ryan was at the airport earlier than the hour of check-in and the jeep was clean. If I go again definitely I will rent he’s jeep.

Josh K. - July 3, 2018
Jeep Wrangler 2005
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.
Lorenzo O. - May 11, 2018
Honda Odyssey 2006
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.
Amanda F. - April 14, 2018

Everything worked out perfect for my trip to Hilo. The car got us around the island to where we wanted to visit. This was my first time using Turo and it could have not gone better. Maria was super nice and friendly and really cool to talk to on our trips to and from the airport.

Great truck! Perfect for our trip to move our son into college. Cynter added maps and an ice chest, but we didn’t have time to use them due to the time we had moving our son. (Very nice touch). I would definitely recommend!!! But I hope it’s available when I return to visit our son! I will definitely use Cynter again!
Craig Y. - August 22, 2018

My first time using Turo and couldn’t be any happier! Everything was so easy and smooth. Todd was amazing, he responded really fast and the car was everything that I needed to have the most incredible week at Big Island.
Fabiana F. - August 22, 2018
Toyota Prius 2007
My experience renting from Micah was absolutely perfect. The car ran amazing, and I got easily 48mpg. The car itself is a little bit older but performs extremely well and was very reliable. Micah is a very kind person who was very helpful at the start of the rental, all the way until the end of the rental. He even checked in to see how things are going which I appreciated. I will definitely be recommending Micah and his vehicle to others. Thank you so much. 🙏🏼

Kristin responded right away whenever I had a questions or updated her on our status at the airport. We loved the car for our short road trips around the island and was the perfect addition to our trip.

Petra I. - December 11, 2017
Nissan Xterra 2005
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.
Benjamin C. - October 26, 2017

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!!

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.

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!
Monique W. - February 8, 2018

Amber wa clear and timely with her communications with us. The car was perfect for us in our trip up and down the windward coast. Definitely would rent from her again next time we are in the area.

Richard was very kind and he went out of his way to work around our schedule. Very willing to give any advice about what to do on the island. Car ran great, no problems. All in all everything went very well and I would definitely rent from him again.
Marjorie D. - December 22, 2017

Great car with great mileage. Much cheaper and easier to rent from Richard and his wife. They also run a vacation home so do ask them about it before you go anywhere else!

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!🌴
