Anwar was a pleasure to rent from. He is a great communicator, nice person and very easy to work with. It was great not having to wait in a line to rent a car at Lihue airport and being able to pick it up and return it directly saving easliy over an hour of time. Anwar's Jeep is clean, spacious and fun to drive . I would highly recommend renting Anwar's Jeep to everyone visitng beuatiful Kauai!

Addi’s mini copper helped my sis and I touring Kauai in style! 😀 First Time I used Turro and our experience was great! Addi’s car is clean, smells nice and drives great — matches the description. It’s quite easy to drop in and out Lihue airport as well. Thanks Addi for making our Hawaii trip a great one!

Wow. Melvin was an awesome host. He was super accommodating with high level of communication. He was always there to answer any question that i had about the rental and showed extreme professionalism. The truck was impeccably clean and very well maintained. This trip wouldn’t have been the same without this awesome vehicle and the support of our host Melvin. In the spirit of aloha he even went out of his way to give me a ride back to my gate. In conclusion i highly recommended using Melvin and I plan to rent his F150 truck again when i return to the beautiful island of Kauai. P.S. When traveling in Kauai, there is no better vehicle than a truck, especially renting one from a local. It felt good giving my money to a local person rather than some corporate company like enterprise, budget, dollar, etc. Our friend who was on the trip with us rented from a budget and all he got was red tape, extra charges, fees, etc. I highly recommend using Turo when traveling to Kauai. Especially if you can score an awesome host like Melvin. Mahalo!!!!

Nice classic Jeep for exploring Kaua’i that sets you apart from the rental car white Wrangler. Awesome host and great communication

Nathan made everything easy for us. With Nathan it was more like borrowing a friend's car than the standard rental car hassle. Pickup and return was quick and easy. We felt more like locals than tourists in Nathan's PT Cruiser and even received "shakas" from true locals. We loved the PT Cruiser, but as Nathan states in his description, the car is lower than a Jeep so don't plan on those out of the way beaches or trail heads. Thanks, Nathan!

Great alternative to standard car rental. Love the convenience of easy pick up & drop off.

Perfect Jeep to rent on Kauai. Unique style with the NX trektop. Rooftop is easily foldable. Pickup and return were easy at about 15 minutes from LIH (18$ for a taxi). Nice features (USB input, 4 doors, AWD).

Toyota RAV4 2008
This was the first time renting a vehicle through Turo and we had a five star experience! First, communication with Meagan was GREAT prior, during our stay on Kauai, and after dropping off the Toyota Rav at Lihue Airport. Meagan made it very convenient by driving her car to meet us at the airport on time upon arrival. She greeted us with her lovely smile with her Aloha spirit, showing us around the Rav and making us aware of important points. The car was very clean, perfect for 2 adults and 2 kids. She also lent us a bodyboard. During our stay, she answered my texts for recomendations where the kids may enjoy. The car ran well during our stay. Prior to leaving to the airport, we vacuumed the car and ran it through a car wash, even though she said it wasn't necessary. Meagan also made the drop off process easy and flawless. I highly recommend visitors who are headed to Kauai to rent cars from Meagan. I find her to be very down to earth, honest, & a very good communicator that will make you feel very comfortable to contact her anytime with questions; about her car or finding places on beautiful Kauai. Once again, thank you for all your hospitality Meagan! Aloha, wallyi

She was great to rent from! Car was clean and pick up was easy we just had to pay part of the exit fee. Drop off was convenient, just left it at the parking lot in front of the airport. She answered quickly and car was in working issues.

Lam is a great guy. His car was super reliable and he was prompt when responding. He drove my wife and me to the airport too. He treated us with great respect and we will absolutely rent another car from him on our next trip to Kauai. The car was perfect for us. We drove it all over the island - always making sure not to use the vehicle on roads made for 4wd. The radio works great and the car is very fuel efficient.

Ashley was great with communicating how to pick up and drop off the car, which was super easy! m She also put extra towels and a jug of water as she knew we would be hiking the often muddy Kauai trails! They turned out to be very useful. I would definitely rent from her again! Mahalo!

I was planning my trip to Kauai And have used Turo On Oahu before when I read Melvin’s reviews he seems very cool and down to earth and had a nice truck. He was very flexible with time and schedule pick up drop off also responded to my text very fast about the trucks availability. The truck ran like a charm ,mileage wasn’t bad at all and the car was very clean in and out. We would definitely rent for Melvin again he made the trip very wonderful and it was super fun to have a truck on the island. Aloha and Mahalo Melvin and Turo Micah P.

Rob was fantastic at every step. He always responded right away and the Jeep is the perfect vehicle for the island. Even though we respected his wishes not to take it off-road, we were very happy to have its capabilities on some of the rougher roads. He also included some beach chairs and umbrella that vastly improved our beach-going experience. Next time we come to Kauai, we will definitely contact Rob first thing to rent from him again.
Brent P. - January 4, 2018

Our trip was amazing. Anwar was always quick to respond. The Jeep was clean and ran perfect. We hope to get back to Kauai and rent from Anwar again!

Rented Simon's truck for a few days and had no issues at all. Convenient pickup at the airport and the big red truck is easy to spot. Make no mistake, this is a big truck! Was a little tight in some parking spots but not really too much of an issue. Would definitely rent again!

Adam’s car was just amazingly good: comfortable, very easy to drive. On the canyon road I enjoyed every corner. Fairly saying: I just felt in love with Adam’s BMW. I already know which car I’m going to rent when I come to Kauai again. Delivery and pick up of the car was so easy. Best service ever!!!
Giedrius G. - November 25, 2017
Nissan Leaf 2012
My second time renting from Justin. This car had a shorter range than the first which had I known that was a thing I would have chosen more appropriately for our trip. I have one gripe about the maintenance of charging stations we visited, Wal-Mart and the one at the mall in lihue were both not working. That put a damper in our first days itinerary given the shorter range on this vehicle and the fact that we were staying in Princeville. Justin was quick to come up with another option. He was very helpful.

Ari L. - February 21, 2018

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.

Addi’s Mini Cooper was a great car to explore the island of Kauai. Addi was great to deal with and checked up on us during our rental stay to make sure everything was ok. After exploring the North Shore and making our way down south we got a flat tire. We reached out to Addi immediately and he worked with us in a timely manner to get the vehicle towed to a safe location where it could be fixed. We appreciated his good and quick communication and flexibility with the flat tire situation to get us back on the road as quick as possible. Thank you Addi for letting us drive your mini.

Couldn't have been a better experience. Pickup and drop-off right in front of the terminal. Truck was great. We had 3 adults and 2 children in our party and made good use of all the extra space. The extra touches like having a guide book for the island, phone chargers and offering beach chairs and a cooler really put the experience well over our expectations. Thanks again!

Gerald F. - January 7, 2018

Renting from Bowen is a breeze - he makes pick up and drop off easy as can be. His convertible Mustang is a great way to experience Kauai. Keep in mind, you’re getting a slightly older Mustang but it drives well and is significantly less expensive than renting from the big companies.
