Great alternative to the big car rental companies. I saved money by renting a hybrid which I would have paid much more for if available at all from the big guys. The car was spotless, service was great and very flexible.
Anna V. - January 28, 2019

Shelley B. - January 14, 2019
Volvo C70 2011
We had an excellent experience with Ilya. The car had lots of power and was very smooth to ride around the windy roads of the big island. Good on gas and you can’t beat having the comfort and safety of a Volvo compared to the Mustangs we have rented before. This was the easiest “rental” experience we had. Ilya was there when we arrived and departed making the car exchange a breeze!!!
Peter M. - January 23, 2019

Jakki S. - June 26, 2018

Jeff’s car was great. Needed a 3 day rental for a quick trip and all the traditional options were sold out. New Honda Civic made getting around the island a breeze. We’d definitely use Jeff again.
David F. - January 6, 2019
Nissan Sentra 2016
Had a great time exploring the island and the convenience of a great rental curb to curb. Mia was willing to work with our schedule and that msde our trip more fun.

Jeff D. - January 9, 2019
Ford Fiesta 2014
Christel was wonderful in communicating with us. We landed and as soon as we left the airport terminal she was there waiting with the keys in hand. And when we left she was there to meet us. No hassle with the car rental waiting in line taking up our vacation time. I am recommending TURO to all our friends and family.
Emmanuel D. - January 5, 2019
Chevrolet Spark 2015
Great for one or two individuals. I was by myself and found the car fun to drive around. Could have been a little cleaner but it was fine. Pickup and drop off at the airport were pretty straightforward and Michael was very responsive and great to work with! If you are in a pinch this is a great rental alternative.
Amit V. - December 24, 2018
Honda Civic 2010
Kalia was wonderful and communicated well over text. The car was basic but in good working order and condition. It served our needs excellently. Pick-up and drop-off at the airport went extremely smoothly, much faster then a traditional rental car.
David B. - January 6, 2019
Ford Fiesta 2013
Everything was smooth pick-up and return by the airport. Perfect communication. Rented for 9 days. I can recommend!
Petr K. - January 28, 2019
Honda Civic 2017
This was the first time we used Turo to rent a car. We were on Hawai’i. Turo was recommended to us by a family member. I would say you need some patience in downloading the ap and and answering all the questions- it took a while. But we found the customer service excellent. Also for us the pick up and drop off at the airport was very convenient. Prices were very comparable.
Birgit Y. - February 1, 2019
Toyota Matrix 2011
James was fantastic to work with. This was my first time using Turo and it was an excellent experience. The car drove very well, was clean and exactly what I expected. James contacted me prior to confirming the car to let me know about something with the vehicle and double check that I was good with it, I appreciated his great communication. He met me at the airport for pick up and drop off and was professional and helpful in letting me know a few things about how Turo worked. Would definitely rent from him again.
Bethany F. - February 6, 2019
Nissan Sentra 2015
Randy’s car was perfect to go around the island. It was clean and Randy was super accommodating to pick us up at the airport! We recommand Randy’s car!
Yoann B. - February 16, 2019
Mazda MAZDA2 2012
Unfortunately Eric’s Mazda broke down on us on day 2. It was at no fault of Eric’s. His Mazda has low miles and it was a completely unexpected turn of events. I sent a text to Eric immediately following his auto dying on us and he responded promptly. We worked together in getting his vehicle towed and Turo took it from there. Furthermore Eric has the car dropped off for us at the airport, with pictures of parked location, and cash inside for parking to be paid for. I would strongly recommend renting from Eric....we certainly will again next time we are on the big island. Thank you Eric!

Nissan Leaf 2018
Mathieu's Nissan Leaf EV was a five-star rental for us. Pickup and return was super easy. However, there are a few caveats for other potential renters who might not be familiar with EVs (electric vehicles). 1. Plan your trip ahead of time. Know where normal L2 (4-6 hr charge) and Fast charging stations (~1+ hr charge/CHAdeMO) are located. The car has navigation with a charging station locator built-in. website also has a map of locations. The first day we ended up driving up from KOA through Waimea and down the Hamakua Coast to Hilo, then using a Hawaiian Electric Fast charge station in Hilo to get us back up to near 100% for our drive north back to Hapuna beach on the west side. Hawaiian Electric takes credit cards, and also uses the Greenlots app which requires $25 base credit to charge. Fortunately, our hotel had free L2 charging stations, which we used to charge the car overnight. 2. Probably the most important thing to know if you're not familiar with EVs is that unlike gas/hybrid vehicles, there is no such thing as "fill up and go". The car has to be stationary for a while in order to charge, so you have to budget that time into your plan. The good news is that we definitely spent less on charging than we would have on gas. 3. Also, a huge positive is that the regenerative braking charges the battery very well especially when going down-hill. One evening we drove up from Hapuna beach to 3 miles below Mauna Kea visitor center. We were at 39% then decided to turn around to make sure we had enough charge to make it back to our hotel in Hapuna. Since it was mostly downhill, we ended up charging the battery the whole way down and ended up back at the hotel with 42% charge left. We worried for nothing. 4. Plan ahead when returning the vehicle. We were asked to return the car with at least 90% charge, so we charged up in Kona at Hawaiian Electric's Fast charger (while we waited) before making the final leg to the airport. One random funny aside, the car does have "Hawaii State Teacher of the Year" decals on it, so one person did ask if we were teachers. Overall, the range anxiety probably kept us from doing more (like driving south where there don't appear to be any charging stations), but overall the car served us well.

Gus was absolutely great! He responded very quickly to our messages and coordinated a quick and easy pickup/dropoff. He also had very helpful information about Big Island and suggestions for our stay here. The car was perfect for our trip -- comfy ride, back-up camera, good sound system, cold A/C, and efficient with fuel. Would highly recommend renting from Gus!

We loved exploring the big island in Roxelle’s Yaris. The little car is as advertised but still runs well, is great on gas, and made our treks on both east and west side of the island a blast. Roxelle also makes pickup/return very straight forward and convenient.
