Small, fast and agile! This is car is so fun to drive and a perfect ride to explore the Big Island of Hawaii. Motoring in a MINI simply isn't like driving other cars. That's why they call it "motoring." Some people equate the incredibly responsive ride to a roller coaster; others, a go-kart. Whatever the truth, it's the performance most people expect from a high-powered sports car.
It is a 2-door car that seats 4 people. It is a MINI so keep in mind that its a tight squeeze if you have lots of bags and stuff. Otherwise, if you need a sweet ride for your Big Island adventures...this car has your name on it!
Free delivery applies to Hilo Intl. Airport (ITO) only!
For airport deliveries, we will meet you at curbside outside of baggage claim. Then we'll transport to the cell phone parking lot (1-minute away) and complete the TURO checklist and car hand-off. This way, we aren't rushed by security ("move along please") and you can do a visual exterior inspection without risk of getting hit by traffic.
PLEASE NOTE: Free delivery for trips of 3 days or over apply to HILO Intl Airport (ITO) only. We reside in Hilo and a trip to Kona will take a total of 3 hours round trip for us to deliver a clean, gassed and cool car to you.
Excellent beach car! Perfect ride to get you to the beach, the only thing I ask is that you vacuum any sand left behind from your beach trips, return the car back to us as clean as we provided it to you and we're cool. I will request a minimum of $20 cleaning reimbursement if I have to clean up sand or any other out of the ordinary mess. Thank you for understanding.
Do you have a car seat or a booster seat available?
We sure do! They are available for a very nominal fee of $20/trip for the child seat and $10/trip for the booster seat.
John was a very gracious, accommodating & kind host! He was quick to respond to communication(s) and was flexible with our drop off/pick up needs. The Mini was a clean little dream! It ran perfectly and was excellent on gas. We had a great experience and will definitely rent from John for future Big Island trips.
This was a great little car! So fun to drive around the island! John was very nice & helpful and picked me up right on time. The drop off procedure was super simple as well. I would highly recommend John & his Mini Cooper! 😃👍🏼
John was a pleasure to work with. Great, quick communication and a friendly attitude. The Cooper was awesome to drive and John keeps it in great shape. Definitely a great car to relax with on the island. Looking forward to the possibility returning to Hilo and renting from him again. Aloha!
