Nissan Altima 2016
Pickup at LIH was lightning fast, and drop off right at the terminal. We had someone hit the bumper while the car was parked, and Bud handled without issue.

The Fit was perfect for getting around the island! Clare was so easy to work with and the price was a fantastic value. We will definitely look for her rental again when we come back!

Nissan Versa 2016
I would recommend this car rental!!! The convenience of pick up and return at the airport was easy and much quicker than a rental car agency. Patricia was quick to respond to communication and nice to deal with. The car even had beach chairs in the trunk...added perk! Thanks Patricia for your car rental service and communication.
Sarah K. - March 7, 2018
Toyota Yaris 2008
My partner and I rented Patricia's Yaris for a 7 day trip and it couldn't have been the more perfect car! Great gas mileage, zippy driving, and can park in any spot with it's small size. Patricia was also SO clear and helpful before the trip and made the rental process a breeze! The trunk part is really not quite big enough to fit two rolling carry-ons but we just threw one in the backseat no problem. I loved the manual rolling windows it was like going back in time. Just the perfect car for this island. It was my first time using Turo and I will definitely be using it again. Thanks again Patricia, already looking forward to my next visit!
Robert R. - January 16, 2019

I really appreciated the ease of airport pickup and return, and the car was just as described -- great experience overall for our Kauai vacation.

Car was waiting for us at the airport. Way easier than dealing with a rental car agency.

Toyota Prius Prime 2017
Robin’s Prius Prime is the perfect vehicle for exploring the island by car. During our trip we drove 337 miles and only consumed 2.8 gallons of gas - that’s 120 mpg! By charging the vehicle overnight each night during our stay we were able to get approx. 36 free miles of pure electric driving each morning, after which the vehicle seamlessly switches to hybrid mode to allow continued fuel efficient driving throughout the rest of the day. Robin’s Prius Prime allowed us to enjoy driving an electric vehicle without worrying about any restrictions on range. As an added benefit the Prius Prime projector LED headlights provided sharp and focused light directed down on the road - which was especially important when driving home at night in the rain when the road is more difficult to see. The vehicle was clean, safe, reliable, easy to drive, and had great fuel efficiency for our trip. Robin made vehicle pickup and drop-off at the airport a breeze. Extremely satisfied with the vehicle and Robin. Thanks Robin!

Car worked out great for our vacation. Drop off and pick up were super convenient - right at the airport!
David J. - January 6, 2019
Kia Optima Plug-In Hybrid 2017
Ashley was prompt with her communication and her car was perfect for our five day visit. I loved how we could go anywhere on the island without worry about running out of gas or battery power. We were able to plug into an outdoor outlet overnight at the house where we stayed which gave us 20 miles on battery the next day. When we refilled the tank it took only 10 gallons! Our overall mileage was over 50 mpg. She coordinated dropping off the car as we arrived at the airport-we hardly waited at all. The Optima was a pleasure to drive and the trunk was big enough for three carry-on bags with a little room left over. I would recommend renting from Ashley! Mahalo!
Laura P. - December 31, 2018
Honda Civic 2012
We rented Lam's car for 10 days during our time in Kauai. He was super flexible and dropped the car off for us in the airport parking lot. Perfect for two travellers. Would rent again.

Wonderful to have an alternative way to get a car rental! Everything was perfect 😊 Much easier than a rental agency since there were no lines or anyone trying to up-sell you. Paula was great with communication too!
Tonya B. - April 24, 2018
Nissan Altima 2016
Wow, what a perfect rental. Car was dropped off at the airport before we arrived and instructions were clear on what was expected. Bud was very accommodating when our flight was delayed by a few hours and was helpful in giving us suggestions of what to do during our stay. Car was of amazing quality and comfort and when we were finished with our stay, the drop off was super easy. I would definitely recommend this rental to anyone staying in Kauai.
Andrey A. - August 28, 2018

Great car w excellent mpg. Pickup at the airport was super easy. Friends waited an hour for their rental car but the Toyota was there and waiting for me the moment I had my bags in hand. Great experience.
Nick M. - August 8, 2018

The easiest rental car type transaction ever! Paula was super communicative and being able to pickup and drop off the car at the airport was really convenient.
Jennifer G. - May 8, 2018
Nissan Versa 2012
Had an amazing trip thanks to Paula and her car! Paula made things for us extremely convenient- car was already ready for us at the airport upon our arrival. She was very helpful and easy to contact throughout our trip and even allowed us to extend our rental for a few extra hours. The car also is excellent- very clean and easy to drive, amazing gas mileage, and very compact which makes it even more convenient for parking. Would highly recommend renting from Paula, you won’t regret it

We had a such great trip with the Mustang! Nathan was very fast to respond to our questions and messages. Picking up the car and dropping it off went very smoothly. Nathan provided detailed instructions on where to pick up the car, which was very helpful. Lastly, it was pretty great being able to put the roof down and enjoy some sunshine! Highly recommend!

Amazing service. Our flight arrived early and I asked Melvin if I could get the car earlier than scheduled and he was super helpful and flexible and brought it within 15 minutes to the pickup location. The car is in excellent condition and drove us to most parts of the island. It was our first time using Turo and is was perfect. Thank you

Great EV car. I had no issue in charging throughout my stay. Pick-up and drop-off was very easy.
Dongwook C. - January 6, 2019
Chevrolet Cruze 2013
This was our first experience renting with Turo. Justin was quick to communicate and patient with the process as we learned how to add drivers. He was also flexible in meeting us early when our flight plans changed by a couple hours. When we called about a potential mechanical problem with the car, Justin was quick to bring us a replacement just in case something happened with the car. Overall it was a great experience and I would use both Justin and Turo again. Mahalo
Maria M. - January 6, 2019
Kia Soul EV 2018
My boyfriend and I loved this car so much that we argued over who would get to drive! It was perfect for our time on Kauai. Our hotel let us charge the car overnight but we also used some of the charging ports around the island if we needed to. Justin was very kind and welcoming, we would rent from him again.
Haley R. - January 7, 2019
Nissan Leaf 2013
Loved driving this car! A word to the wise though: make sure you can charge it overnight. If not, you’ll be spending a large part of your vacation waiting for it to charge. Other than that, zero complaints. Really fun to drive, and Justin was great.
Stephen H. - January 6, 2019

Super clean, super reliable, super easy. 5 stars, would rent again

Kartik M. - December 26, 2018
Toyota Yaris 2008
The Toyota Yaris wasn’t in the cleanest shape when we got it, had a very strange smell too, but for the price I cannot complain. Strange Patricia mentioned that the little car only took premium fuel when online it mentioned to use standard unleaded, I guess it’s the renters’ personal request. Other than that pickup and dropoff is super easy and convenient, car was fuel efficient and reliable, small and nimble for Kauai. Would be happy to rent again.
David S. - January 9, 2019
Chevrolet Cruze 2015
Great car, great pickup and drop off. David was great to communicate with. This experience could not have been better!

Ashley and the car were fantastic! I received a message that the car was ready early so that I could go get it whenever I wanted which was great and so convenient. It was so clean and easy to drive. The mpg on this car is incredible. It was absolutely perfect for our trip to Kauai and I so appreciated Ashley’s clear communication and flexibility.
Jessica M. - January 8, 2019

Marykate H. - January 20, 2019
Chevrolet Cruze 2015
David was excellent and made our weekend super easy. Highly recommend using him! I will definitely request him again when I go back to Kauai. A plus was not charging extra for airport pickup and an affordable cleaning fee since I ran out of time to do it myself.
Jennifer M. - September 4, 2018
Nissan Leaf 2011
Justin and the Leaf were wonderful. We loved driving the car. It was so efficient, zippy, maneuverable, and affordable! Justin was responsive, flexible, timely, and very helpful. We had never driven an electric car. It was easy and motivated us to be better drivers. I will think of buying one down the road. I highly recommend Turo and Justin for automobile rental. Finding electric charging stations was a little challenging, , Especially on the North Island. But Princeville offers a free charging station in the shopping center which we found very accessible, and at the foot of Wiamea canyon is a free charging station at the Baptist Church. With these we were fine. We typically charge from our condo rental every night.
Susan R. - December 5, 2018
Mazda MX-5 Miata 2018
All aspects of this rental were easy and seamless—exactly what you want while on vacation! Communication was effective, the pick-up and drop-off processes were easy, and we got to drive in style. The car is also very efficient, making filling up they tank less of a burden. Would recommend and would rent from Ash in the future, if we’re lucky enough to return to beautiful Kauai!

Justin was great! He made everything seamless and fun. He made the rental super easy and cared about my trip too. Thanks!!
Peter W. - July 10, 2018
Kia Soul EV 2018
Driving arround the island in an electric vehicle is amazing. The car was in very good overall condition. The range is about 140mi at full charge: this should be enough for a trip from Princeville to Koke'e State Park and back if you dare. We usually charged in Lihue when we had dinner on our way back. When you consider renting this car you might check want to check the possibility of charging at your accommodation itself. We did not have it, so we had to plan and time the charging on public EV-charging stations. Luckily we stayed just 15min footwalk away from those at the Princeville Shopping Center. Renting from Justin was uncomplicated. It was a very nice experience
Julien T. - November 15, 2018

Anwar was attentive, flexible and full of aloha. The car handled very well on the curvy Kauai roads. Airport pickup, drop off was convenient and easy. Anwar was exceptionally helpful when we encountered a major difficulty on our last day. Deeply grsteful to deal with an individual and not a company.

Heather A. - December 10, 2018
BMW 3 Series 2014
This was our first rental through Turo and we couldn't be happier with the car and service that Adam gave us. He set the bar pretty high. The car was a dream to drive and allowed us to explore the entire island in style!! When we come back we wouldn't hesitate to contact Adam again. Mahalo!
Brad K. - October 28, 2017
Dodge Avenger 2008
Thomas was so easy to work with and answered our questions right away. The Avenger had a great trunk to move all our gear around the island. It’s so nice to be picked up when you arrive and not have to wait at the rental counter.
Todd C. - February 19, 2018
Nissan Juke 2016
Everything was wonderful with this rental. The car was smaller than I expected and with 4 people I would probably get a bigger car next time. But if I were traveling with 2 or 3 this car would have been absolutely perfect.
Bri D. - February 21, 2018

Sam was great. Really easy to deal with, always replied to our questions and the car was as described. The car is great on gas and would highly recommend renting it. It made our trip a whole lot easier not having to deal with rental agencies.

Roy's Juke was a fun, sporty car. I prefer to drive manual transmissions, which are difficult to find in rental situations. Car appeared well maintained and we had no issues whatsoever. It also got amazing fuel economy for being so peppy. Highly recommended.
