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.

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.

Toyota Venza 2010
Everything went smoothly. More convenient than a traditional rental car where you have to wait for a shuttle and then stand in line. Will try it again for sure.

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!

Honda Pilot 2013
Nathan made this the easiest car rental of my life. The Honda Pilot was ‘as advertised’, clean and waiting for me when I arrived. This is the perfect mode of transportation for a family that may need a little extra room for excursions and trips to the beach. 4 wheel drive is great for wet roads. Would definitely use again and highly recommend.

Jeep Patriot 2008
Working with Melvin was great! The car was great, it was super clean and the process was really easy. In the future, we would not rent a stick shift for getting around the island. With the traffic and change of terrain, it was more work than we wanted. However, we would rent form Melvin again!
Sara M. - July 8, 2018
Honda Ridgeline 2007
Reliable. Communicative. Helpful and courteous. Great first Turo experience. I went with this Truck-UV as I thought it's utility would be good for our active vacation and I was proved correct. The truck bed made it great for carrying sandy beach gear and throwing muddy hiking gear into. It's an old used car, but whatever. It was reliable and drove fine and the utility and price worked better than if we would have rented a similar sized SUV from one of the usual rental car companies. Rob made it super easy for pick up and drop off right at the airport. He had it waiting for us just as we arrived, so we just loaded up and went straight to our supply stops. He was very helpful with info and advice. He even left a little cash to get out of the airport parking lot. Just a really great experience.

Melvin was great to rent from. He made the entire transaction very easy. Communication was excellent. Would definitely rent from again.

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
Ford Escape Hybrid 2006
Lam’s Escape isn’t rental car agency pristine but it is clean, practical and gets you where you need to go. Having an older car with ‘character’ prevents you from sticking out like a tourist too much and made it a relaxing trip. Lam was easy to coordinate with, would ride again.
Matthew M. - May 3, 2018
Nissan Versa 2012
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 Rogue 2013
Jennifer was wonderful and her car fit our family perfectly. She picked us up curbside at the airport and had us drop her off at her office building, which is just 2 or 3 minutes from the airport, and then we were on our way! This was my first experience with Turo, so I didn't know what to expect, but it was affordable, convenient, and NO LINES at a rental car location; so easy! Jennifer was available for any questions we had, either about the car or about what to do on the island. She was prompt and responsive. When we returned the car, we met her at her work and she dropped us at the airport. I highly recommend using Jennifer and her Rogue if you're considering Turo for your car rental on Kauai! I can't say enough about what a great experience it was for us. 5 stars!
Bryn F. - April 14, 2018
Jeep Wrangler 2014
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).
Maxime L. - October 19, 2017
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

Kia Sorento 2014
Brice was absolutely awesome! Met me right at my gate (somehow we were on the same flight) walked me to the car. And told me a few places to go on the island for sunset. Na Pali Coast at sunset was stunning. The Kia ran phenomenal and was the perfect car to get me all over the island. For all my adventures. I will definetly rent with Brice again next time I'm in Kuaui. Thank you so much Brice.

First of all, working with Melvin is great. He is very flexible, and was always extremely quick to communicate with me. The truck was clean (and smelled great which was a bonus) and was fantastic on gas. I would highly recommend working with Melvin for anyone looking to rent this great vehicle!

My wife and I were lucky enough to have Marc’s truck for 2 weeks. It’s the perfect way to get around the amazing island of Kauai. When we visit again we won’t hesitate to rent the truck again!

Honda Pilot 2016
So glad we booked Nathan’s Honda Pilot for our group of six! Nathan was easy to communicate and had the SUV ready to be picked up in the parking lot with all information already texted ahead of time. He was also kind enough to send us a list of recommendations for the island which we relied on heavily. Also loved that he had the option to rent snorkels, beach chairs and other beach necessities - we rented the snorkels!!! Thank You Nathan! Definitely recommending you to anyone who wishes to use your TURO. Tamding (NY)
Tamding S. - June 1, 2018
Jeep Wrangler 2011
This was my first time using Turo and Anwar was about a great of a host as possible! Not only was pick-up and drop-off insanely easy, but he provided an incredible list of things to do in Kauai. Anwar is very quick with his responses and cares about you as a driver. The Jeep was fun, easy to use (including the removable roof) and he provides an Aux cord for your phone... but I thought listening to the local radio stations was fun. Sometimes the sensor will give you a false alert but that's common in Jeeps so nothing to worry about. Can't wait to get back to Kauai and hopefully get to rent from Anwar again! A hui hou! Mahalo nui loa!
Neal L. - May 30, 2018

We loved Paula's Nissan Versa. Having a small and maneuverable car on Kauai was a huge plus for parking in tight spaces. It was very clean and drove well. Paula was a great a host and available for any questions. The pick-up and drop off were easy. We'd rent through Paula again in a heartbeat.
Tyler G. - May 29, 2018

Seeing Kauai in a Jeep is the way to go, and there’s no easier way than renting through Rob. Pickup at the airport could not have been easier, and Rob went above and beyond to provide great information and service. His Jeep was better than advertised and worked perfectly, definitely adding some fun to the trip. I’ll rent from Rob every time I go to Kauai.
Jeremy O. - May 14, 2018

The car was great, and Bud was terrific! Super nice and easy communication. Will definitely be back, and no doubt rent from Bud again!

Honda Pilot 2012
This Honda Pilot was everything we could have asked for and then some. Spacious, good on gas, and a higher end model with plenty of goodies. Our first experience with Turo and Nathan made it a great one. Couldn’t have asked to rent from a better owner. Highly recommend.
Jeraldine H. - May 6, 2018

We had to rent a last minute car with Lam and he did it very easy and quickly for us at the airport. We also had a problem with a car early in the morning and Lam came up with another car as soon as we called him, plus an important refund for the situation. Very easy and helpful guy.

The truck was perfect for our weekend trip to Kauai. Our plan to rent a kayak & explore the Na Pali Coast was deferred because of the weather (nothing to do with this Rental). Highly recommend this truck & Melvin for future rentals.

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!

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.
Alysia M. - October 27, 2017
Jeep Wrangler JK 2018
First time using Turo and it was great experience. Melvin was a pleasure to deal with. The Jeep Wrangler was just as pictured and was spotless when we picked it up at airport. Melvin left the Jeep at airport terminal -all we had to do was pick up our bags at baggage claim and walk out to the jeep and dropped it off at airport at end of trip. Would highly recommend renting from Melvin.

Great car. Good gas mileage even without topping it off with a charge (you can drive just on gas and get around 70 miles a gallon). Robin was easy to communicate with. If you want to explore the island, you're going to do a decent amount of driving, and we highly recommend Robin and her Prius Prime!

Sandie was over the top accomodating!!! She dropped the car off early and I returned it early without a hiccup. The car was extremely clean and the honda rode smooth and great gas mileage. Sandie communicated a ton, was very informative about the island, with history, things to do and see. She is awesome!! I live in Hawaii but she showed the true meaning of Aloha. I will be a repeat customer on my next trip. Highly reccomend renting from her.
Matthew K. - July 16, 2018

Sandie was a very gracious host. Car was neat an clean. We had to change drop off dates/times a couple of times during the trip and she was very flexible. Would definetly look her up next time in Kauai.

Jeep Wrangler 2015
My family and I loved renting Rob’s Jeep. He made the whole process so convenient. He loaned us beach chairs and umbrella, left us water and a lei in the Jeep, which left a very pleasant smell as we entered the Jeep. When we were leaving kuaui we ran into a large amount of traffic getting to the airport. We ran out of time to fill up the gas tank. Rob was very flexible, and said no problem he would fill up the Jeep and let us know what we owed him for gas. He sent us a picture of the receipt and we used Venmo to pay him. I would recommend renting rob’s Jeep, it was a great experience.

Ashley was very easy to communicate with, locate the car, and return any questions I had in an extremely timely manner. The car was in impeccable cleanliness shape and was a great vehicle to drive around Kauai. I appreciated his friendliness; I would recommend his car for any future renters.

During the car dropoff she literally drove up smiling big and sporting a shaka lol🤙🤙She was genuinely excited to represent Kauai and help us find cool places to visit and things to do, was super knowledgeable about the island. She also hooked us up with a bunch of beach equipment. It was a really great experience renting from her, she made us feel very welcome.
