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 car is well maintained and does not consume too much gas. It was nice to drive around the island with it. Ben was available and responsive. The self pick up and drop off at the airport is easy and hassle free if you follow Ben's instructions. I recommend this rental.

Ford Mustang 2015
This was my first time renting through Turo and it was a great experience! At first, I was a little worried about renting from a private party (though the concept made sense) but the process of pick up and return was very smooth and Nathan was a very good communicator throughout the trip! It was so easy and enjoyable to walk by the long lines at the car rental booths at the airport on my say to Nathan's Mustang that was just waiting for me in the parking lot. I can't picture ever renting from the normal companies where you never know what car you'll end up with and have to fight the crowds at the airport. The car itself was great, clean and well maintained for a four year old car. Overall, this was the best car rental experiences I've ever had!

Sarah
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.

Kevin
Toyota Yaris 2007
Worked out very well renting this car. It was a good price and got us where we needed to go. As long as you aren’t planning to drive on unpaved roads and can overlook some scrapes and chipped paint this is a great value rental. The car makes some noise while idling, but we experienced no mechanical issues during our weeklong rental. The app says to use premium gas but Patricia confirmed it uses regular gas. Easy to recommend this car.

Regina
Honda Fit 2013
Turo saved me so much money AND so much time. Curbside pickup is awesome and may I add what I learned with Galina is her need for a ride just a few miles was even better, because it helped being driven out of the turmoil of the rushing curbside and airport plus I didn't have to be so concerned about precise return time. I simply picked her up and let her drive and we were on our way back to the airport where I'm ready to hop out! Wonderful experience and such a courteous host.
Regina C. - May 9, 2019
Sandra
Toyota Prius 2007
This was my first time using Turo. Jeremy made it user friendly. He made the pick up and return of the vehicle very easy, we took him up on his suggestions for having a nice lunch near the beach at Duke's to getting the car washed and vacuumed nearby before returning it to the airport. The car was clean, everything worked and it made driving around the island quite pleasant. Mahalo Jeremy.
Sandra V. - May 9, 2019

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!

Absolute fantastic car for the island. The size was vital in some spots that had we not had it, we would have been stuck because of other bigger cars blocking us in parking lot. Clean, fun, and very practical!!! HIGHLY RECOMMEND!

Barbara’s Kia Soul was perfect for our trip. The car drives well and it’s very quiet inside. Barbara even included a beach bag with the car which we used each day. The size of the car is also really practical for finding parking spaces at popular attractions. Communication with Barbara was easy as well!

Tim
Ford Mustang 2016
First time using Turo and visiting the beautiful island of Kauai- of course it had to be in a convertible. Absolutely the correct decision, driving through scenic roads with the top down made drives such a pleasure! Car is in great shape and pick-up/drop-off is seemless. I had no trouble whatsoever. Highly, highly recommend!

Tom
Nissan Altima 2013
Our first time using Turo, we weren't exactly sure what to expect but it was very smooth! Luises met us at the baggage claim where we each snapped some photos ( the car was very clean inside and out), popped in our bags and grabbed the keys. Luises responded super quickly and the car performed beautifully as we drove around the island for the week. The app is easy to use as well. Luises checked back with us the day before returning the car and met us again at airport. Great experience overall and quick- our friends wasted an hour getting their rental car at the airport. We will look for Luises again on our next trip to Kauai!
Tom H. - February 24, 2019
Andrey
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

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.
Kathleen K. - January 7, 2018
Jennifer
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

Anne
Toyota Yaris 2012
This was my first Turo rental and everything went smoothly! The car drove wonderfully throughout our trip (and good mpg too!) and Sam was really understanding and communicative and gave us a couple of food recommendations and fruits to kickstart our trip! I'd recommend him to everyone and will be renting from him again when I return to Kauai! Thank you again, Sam!!

The Corolla was a great car for the island; clean and great gas mileage. Pickup and return at the airport couldn’t be easier. Thanks!!

Jeff
Toyota Prius Prime 2017
Very easy to communicate with, easy to pick up the car from airport. The Prius Prime worked well for us - easy on the gas and we weren’t going crazy with off-roading on our hikes so didn’t need a Jeep like so many others on the island drive. One of the valleys at one of the hotels, who I’m sure has seen some cool cars, was impressed!
Jeff L. - March 24, 2019

Mike
Honda Fit 2013
Galina was late dropping the car off to us at the airport. When she didn’t show, or respond to my text I called her to see what was going on and I’m pretty sure I woke her up (it was 7am). But I think It was honest mistake. Plus she did come within 15 minutes of me calling her and everything went smoothly after that. The car was perfect, and Galina was prompt and responsive. Overall thankful for everything.

Susan
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.

Jacqueline
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!
Jacqueline M. - December 10, 2018
Judith
Chevrolet Cruze 2015
This rental could not have been any better! Communication with David was easy. He arrived on time with a great clean car. He was a complete professional and gave me tips about where to go, etc. I will definitely be renting from David again.

Todd

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
Bri
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.

Joshua
Nissan Juke 2016
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.

Ellie
Nissan Versa 2016
The car was reliable and the pickup and drop off was super convenient. Patricia was responsive to messages and clear with directions about pickup and drop off. Easy and affordable option for car rental. Would definitely use a car from Patricia again.

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
