Shea was very responsive (communicated via text). The car was easy to find as she had taken pictures of where she had parked right outside the airport terminal. She left cash to pay for the parking. The key box was easy to figure out. The car ran well and got good gas mileage. Easy return.

Ryan L. - October 30, 2018
Ford Mustang 2016
For our first booking on Turo, Richard set the standard of how well this works. The car was better than expected and the communication was flawless. Richard was with us every step of the way. He re-confirmed before we picked up the car about flights and times, checked in during our trip to see how we were doing and even extended out our trip when we had the time wrong for our flight. What better way to explore The Big Island than in a red convertible Stang. Definitely a must do when you come to Hawaii.
Kieran E. - October 22, 2018
MINI Cooper 2008
We loved the car and Chantal was great! Good communication and flexibility. The Mini was mechanically in great shape and such fun to drive. Economy was a plus with Hawaii gas prices! 500+ mile on a tank means we only had to fill up once. We are hoping to get a month rate for the next visit!
Kenn J. - October 22, 2018
BMW 6 Series 2012
A must drive while in Hawaii, head turner! Smooth ride and immaculate condition

Wyatt S. - November 13, 2018

Andy's Versa was great for touring the island: easy on gas, good room for 4 people and rides surprisingly nice and is well-equipped for an economy car. Pick-up and return were easy. Nice car and owners :)

Honda Civic 2012
Car was exactly as advertised. Amber had car at airport for easy pickup and return was also very easy drop off at the airport, so much easier then traditional rental with pickup and off site rental facilities. Car ran great and Amber was also quite helpful with helpful recommendations for activities and dining on the island. All things considered, I will use Turo again and Amber again if we return to Hawaii
James K. - March 22, 2018
Honda Civic 2005
Great rental. TJ was easy to work with and delivered the car to the airport and picked it back up at the airport so we didn't have to hassle with getting to the car. Would happily rent again.
Holden L. - July 5, 2017
Kia Rio 2009
Car was ready at the airport upon arrival -- dropped off by one of TJ's friends. Car ran great and took us all over the island! Much better deal than any of the other rental companies could have offered.
Philip S. - July 13, 2017
Toyota Corolla 2014
America was great! Dropped the car off right at the airport and picked the car up at the same spot. Super convenient, easier than a rental company. Car was great!

Nissan Versa 2016
This was my first Turo experience and Ryan made it a total breeze! Pick up and drop off right at the airport, clean car with great gas mileage. We drove around the entire Big Island with no problems at all. Ryan was super accommodating when our flight was delayed and offered lots of great local tips. Definitely recommend booking from Ryan if you're looking for a smooth rental experience!
Maegen L. - May 25, 2018
Toyota Camry 2005
Jeffrey was amazing, he was accommodating, communicated well and very kind. He met us at the airport for pick up/drop off. It made the trip so much easier and simple to not have to worry about getting to/from the rental area and the whole rental process. We used his Toyota Camry for our island adventures and it was just perfect for what we needed. I will be returning to the island multiple times over the next four years as my daughter is at the University and will definitely be renting from Jeffrey! Thank you for everything!
Lisette B. - August 20, 2017
Mazda MX-5 Miata 2006
What an awesome car! Zipping around the Big Island in this classy and perfectly-maintained Miata was an absolute dream. We spent 4 days circumnavigating the island and visiting beaches and volcanoes, and since my husband doesn't drive a stick I got the pleasure of driving every mile of it. Bryan's car hugged the curves as we drove through jungle-vine tunnels on Kalapana-Kapaho Road, easily climbed up to the coffee plantations on the slopes above Honalo, and got lots of attention as we cruised with the top down through downtown Hilo and the tourist district of Kailua-Kona. In many places we went, folks assumed we were local. (Apparently it is quite easy for islanders to spot the standard rental cars like the Mustang we almost went with. One of our Airbnb hosts told us that our local car made it less likely that we'd be targeted for a break-in, since thieves are usually on the lookout for obvious tourists). Putting the top up and down was quick and easy, which is good since we were caught more than once in a sudden afternoon rain storm or needed to protect ourselves from a bit too much tropical sun. Note, if you're not familiar with driving a 6-speed manual, make sure to have Bryan show you how to get into reverse. I spent WAY too long trying to figure that out on my own. And, make sure you pack light since the trunk is a tight fit for two bags plus snorkeling gear. If you're like us, you'll spend most of the trip in some variation of your swim suit anyway. Bryan was super friendly and easy to communicate with. We arranged for pickup/dropoff at the Kona airport, which worked great. Unfortunately we scratched the paint on the front bumper somewhere along the way (probably on a rock while parking at Uncle Robert's Night Market; in retrospect I should have had a spotter to navigate that one). Even after I damaged his baby, Bryan was very easy to deal with and we were able to amicably work out a reasonable solution for us to pay for the necessary repairs. 10/10, would absolutely rent again.
Jonathon B. - October 12, 2018
Hyundai Elantra 2012
Very flexible and made the pickup and drop off took way less time than I could dream of from a rental car company counter. Cost less than half as much too. Highly recommended.
Tyler J. - August 1, 2017
Toyota Prius 2005
Great deal, he upgraded us at no charge, met us both when we arrived and departed without delay. More convenient then rental car company. Would definitely rent from Jeffrey again.
Anthony G. - October 19, 2017

Outstanding service and true aloha spirit! Thank you Shawn for helping make our trip great. I would go out of my way to choose Shawn again and I highly recommend him to those of you considering this rental.
Andrew D. - October 18, 2017

Chantel catered Pick up and drop off to what I needed. The mini was a fun car to tour the island with, highly recommended if your looking for a rental.
Brent S. - November 20, 2017
Chevrolet Aveo 2008
It's a pleasure doing business with John Mark. The car was as expected, economical and well maintained. So much nicer to deal with Turo rather than the usual rental car companies!
Jane T. - March 8, 2018
Nissan Versa Note 2016
The Versa was like new, very clean, ran perfectly, great car. Zach was a pleasure to deal with. He picked us up at the airport terminal. Way easier than waiting in the long lines at rental car agencies!! This was my first time to use this app and will definitely use it again! All around great experience.
David M. - October 13, 2017
Mercedes-Benz C-Class 2006
This rental went super well and we loved the car. It was just right for getting the family of 5 around the island in comfort. We were only crowded to and from the airport with our luggage, but that was expected. Very happy.
Seth K. - January 11, 2018
Chevrolet Spark 2013
Shawn is super easy to work with and very good at communicating. We loved the convenience of picking up and dropping off at the airport. No waiting in a long line at the rental company. The car is clean, gets around great and easy to get in tight parking spots.
Patty S. - March 23, 2018
Nissan Versa Note 2016
This little car was perfect for our road trip around the island. Andy was right on time picking us up and dropping us off at the airport. Being under 25, we saved so much money by using Turo. I’ll always check here before ever using a traditional car rental company.
Marquel S. - April 22, 2018
Ford Mustang 2016
John helped us out when AC on our other rental through another provider died. We loved this mustang which had nice cold ac and John was super cool and loves his home in Hawaii! We enjoyed talking with him and pick up/drop off were easy. Would definitely rent again! Hawaii is the place to rent a convertible!
Michelle C. - June 26, 2018
Hyundai Accent 2011
My first time using Turo and it was awesome! Joshua did a great job and I was surprised how quickly I was able to get the car and go... no more traditional rental cars for me! Thanks for making my first turo experience positive!
Brenna P. - July 8, 2018
Scion xD 2008
Shea definitely contributed to my having a great trip! Her car was clean and waiting for me when I arrived at the airport. It was so much better cruising along knocking through the gears in her Scion than another joyless drive in a base model rental car with an automatic transmission. The air conditioner is nice n' frosty along with a Goldilocks clutch and transmission that is neither too stiff, nor too loose. Dropping the car off at the airport was also just as easy as picking it up. If you're even considering renting her car, you should totally do so. Great car! Great person! She's the Aloha spirit incarnate. Mahalo Shea!
Robert D. - August 4, 2018
Hyundai Accent 2016
This was my first experience with Turo and I was extremely pleased with the car rental. Joshua was very responsive to any of my requests and answering any questions. He had Kris pick us up from the airport and drop us back off. Kris was very punctual and responded back to us immediately. He even rushed to pick us up when our plane arrived 30 minutes early. The car was very gas efficient and we did not experience any problem. Both Joshua and Kristian were great to communicate with. We would rent from them again.
Susan R. - July 16, 2018
Hyundai Sonata 2015
We loved airport curbside pickup and drop-off. Car ran great and was clean. All communication was pleasant. getting set up with Turo could needs to be easier. We would rent again.
Leslie M. - March 12, 2018
Toyota Matrix 2007
Everything was perfect. Car delivery to airport made everything much easier. Jeremy was easily reachable any time, whenever needed, always ready to answer any question. We enjoyed the trip very much. Thank you!

Josh was great to deal with. He left the car at Kona Airport parking which was convenient and easy to find. The car had a full tank and was clean with everything in working order. Def recommend using Josh and his Mustang for any trip to Kona
Stephanie H. - October 8, 2018
David Scott
MINI Cooper 2008
Total cost of the Mini Cooper was about $50 less than the cheapest sub-compact from a rental agency, and included pick-up/drop-off right at the Kona Airport. Although the Mini requires premium fuel, we traveled over 500 miles and still had about a 1/4 tank left, so the gas mileage was excellent (somewhere between 40 and 50 mpg). Car was fun to drive and easy to park and maneuver in crowded parking lots. I would rent the car again.
David Scott L. - February 24, 2018
Kia Rondo 2007
Josh was responsive and easy to work with. Car fit 3 ppl, 2 suitcases, 2 carryons, and 2 golf bags quite comfortably. AC was broken, but Josh was upfront about this prior to the rental. Just note that there is no covered trunk, so be wary about leaving the car w/luggage unattended. Pickup/dropoff service was a little out of the way, but it was probably still faster than shuttle to a rental car agency, standing in line, checking car out, etc. Would definitely rent from Josh again.
Lee S. - January 8, 2018
Hyundai Elantra 2012
This was a very easy rental. Mrahalo was easy to communicate with, punctual, and flexible with our pickup and drop off needs. The car was in good working condition and got us everywhere we needed to go (all around the Big Island). Would rent again.
Elisabeth G. - January 30, 2018
Honda Fit 2013
I was really happy with my experience with John. He and his wife were so helpful in making sure our trip got off to a good start and were both professional and friendly. This was my first Turo rental, and based on my experience I plan to use the service again.
Tom O. - February 20, 2018

This was a fantastic car for a week on the Big Island. Clean, comfortable, sporty, and spacious enough for 2 people with 2 weeks worth of baggage. Painless pickup and drop-off. Can't recommend enough!
Edward H. - October 5, 2018
Hyundai Accent 2011
Josh was great. The car was exactly what we wanted, ran well with no problems, and Josh responded to every question/text very quickly. Our vacation was smooth and enjoyable due in large part to this car and the how easy everything was!

Ford Mustang 2016
Richard was amazing. He communicated with us the day before about our flight info/arrival and was there and ready to go right when we got off. He also offered different recommendations about places to go in the Big Island. I could tell that he takes very good care of the car - it was amazing. He was very responsive and super involved with the experience. When drop-off came, he also was very flexible with us. I would definitely rent with him again! Thank you Richard!!
Samantha V. - August 24, 2018
Chrysler PT Cruiser 2005
Renting a vehicle from Bruce was the best decision we could have made for our eight week stay on The Big Island. Our first time using Turo turned out to be a great experience. We would highly recommend renting a vehicle from Bruce!
David B. - August 27, 2018
Kia Soul 2016
Great of Chris to make pick up and return easy. Consistent and available at the front end and when I extended my trip. At the end, not as available and wasn’t getting responses back any more. Car performance was great and good gas mileage. Windshield wiper broke a few times and I was able to reconnect it myself but I’d recommend making sure that’s working before taking it on the road in the rain. Overall great experience and I’d request this vehicle again.
Ananda F. - August 27, 2018

Anthony went beyond the call of duty to make sure I was happy. Couldn’t be happier. Cool ride too!
Kory C. - August 28, 2018
Toyota Matrix 2011
My wife and I were staying on the Big Island of Hawaii for 24 days, and we had two friends from Colorado also staying with us for a week. They’d never been to Hawaii, so Danny’s Toyota MaTrix was the perfect sized economical car for us on a long-term basis. Danny’s timely communication regarding pickup and drop-off left us feeling secure. He checked in with us a couple times to make sure things were OK. Thanks, Danny!
James N. - September 1, 2018

Was first time using Turo. Ryan was fantastic and the Turo experience he made easy. Thoroughly recommend Ryan, really nice guy who provided lots of information before and during the trip. Ryan was always there to answer a question and went above and beyond. Thanks so much Ryan, your the best. Jan and the fam.
Jan H. - August 29, 2018

Our experience with Josh and the Mustang was excellent. Everything went smoothly and the car was great to drive. My only complaint was that the Bluetooth for the stereo wasn’t very reliable but not really a concern.
Daniel D. - September 2, 2018
