Toyota Yaris 2011
Had a great time visiting Kohala and Waikoloa because I was able to use Kalil’s Yaris. The Rental cars were super expensive during the 4th of July weekend. The car was parked the driveway at the address he gave me, the gas filled, key was easily accessed. Easy to drive. He responded to my messages quickly. Mahaloto Kalil for using Turo!

Chevrolet Cruze 2011
The Chevy Cruz was just what we needed for our 3 month reservation while we looked at property to buy on the Big Island. When the Cruz developed unexpected automatic transmission problems, Maria was quick to respond with a replacement Rav4 until it was booked by another traveler. She actually came to swap and pick up the cars in Kona, sparing us a trip to Hilo. Now we are waiting for Turo to refund us the last 15 days rental. Thank you to Maria for handling it professionally. We’d recommend her cars in the future. Jay & Carol

Kristin restored my faith in Turo! Not only was she professional, she made everything about this rental experience incredibly easy. The car was spotless and she went above and beyond to make our trip completely painless. We wouldn’t have had the amazing trip to the Big Island without her! If you ever need a car in Hilo, I highly recommend Kristin.

William (Bill) and Brandy are awesome!!! They met us at the airport and the four of us hit it off so well we had dinner together at a local diner. They gave us great suggestions on where to visit and eat during our visit. They gave us an even better vehicle to use than originally planned because they could see that it would fit our needs better. They are excellent communicators and truly a great couple who care about people. When our trip was finished everything was perfect. Now we are excited about coming back to Hilo and booking Turo with Bill. We feel that we have made friends for life. 😃

The owner, vehicle, and overall experience was absolutely fantastic! The owner was very easy to get ahold of; responded promptly and courteously; and was extremely helpful, flexible, and professional. The vehicle was very clean, well-maintained, and located at the place & time she said it would be. The owner is a very reliable, professional, and caring individual who went out of her way to make this rental an easy and rewarding experience. I 100% would recommend her to anyone in the Hilo, Hawaii area. I cannot say enough good things about interacting with the owner & the quality of the vehicle. 5 out 5 stars👍

Jasmine at Aiona was great in a pinch when my rental car fell through in Kona. Had to travel to Hilo to get the car, but Jasmine was flexible with pick-up and drop-off, adding another driver to my policy, and we were able to purchase additional miles for a reasonable fee instead of worrying if we would go over the allocation. The car was a newer model and clean. I had a great experience with Aiona and will rent from again!
Jennifer W. - January 4, 2019

Two trips to hilo from volcano and some driving in between and only used 4 gallons of gas. Great car. Very pleased.

Todd definitely earns a five-star rating. I ended up renting two different cars from Todd both or in excellent condition and super clean. He worked with me and my last minute changes to the itinerary. I recommend renting one of Todd's cars highly. In fact, if you are trying to decide on a rental right now, stop and see if one of his cars are available and book it now. His cars are great and his service is outstanding.
Keith M. - September 20, 2018

Enjoyed travel throughout the "Big Island" in the Honda Civic. The car performed well and got great gas mileage. Car pick up and drop off worked well. The car was clean both inside and out. Would rent from Jason again if back in Hilo.

Amazing! Richard is such a lovely, relaxed & honest guy. The communication before the rental was fast and clear. At the airport he was waiting for me and i was able to drive away with the car straight away. The car is just amazing. Drives really smooth and low on petrol. Everyday was a pleasure to drive around the Island in it. Richard & his wife also have an AirB&B at their house were I stayed for 5 nights. It’s such a good single room (2 persons bed) with your own outdoor area, kitchen and bathroom. Really clean and super cozy room! Definitily a must do if you rent his car. He, his wife and the 3 lovely dogs made my trip 10x better! Felt loved, respected and at home. Thankyou so much for everything and i’ll be back one day! To rent the car & stay at the airbnb.

The car was exactly what I needed for my short trip to Hilo. Micah’s description is pretty spot on; despite the outward appearance the car ran very well and I had no problems getting anywhere. Mahalo nui!
Sarah B. - May 13, 2019

An issue came up with the car right before my trip, but Micah was still able to set me up with another similar car so I didn't have to worry at all about scrambling for a new rental car the weekend of Merrie Monarch. Excellent customer service!
Emma W. - April 29, 2019

Car was clean, smelt lovely & was extremely good on gas! Also, Tricia was able to meet me in the evening on such short notice! I’d rent again for my next trip. Thank you Tricia!

Toyota Prius 2008
The prius was great and Shane was great. He was very eager to show us around the island and make sure our stay was enjoyable, which is above and beyond what I expected. Unfortunately we had other plans already each of the times he contacted us with things to do, but we did appreciate his effort. He seemed to genuinely care that we were seeing the best the big island had to offer. The car was in good shape and ran as expected and the only issue we had was a low tire on the front driver's side. Shane was very flexible, which was great because a few unexpected reschedules in our flight itinerary had us arriving later and leaving earlier than we expected, but Shane had no problem meeting us at the different times when I messaged him.

Thank you so much Tricia!! Her Honda was perfect for my family staycation. I came in the first flight for Hilo and she was considerate enough to meet me early in the morning. She also let me know about the eco button which saved me a lot of gas (I went to Kona and didn’t even reach half tank). The car was so clean, IT SMELT SO GOOD. The ride was smooth, and easy to drive. Hopefully she is available next time I come home. Mahalo Tricia!
Kayla L. - July 30, 2019

Booking Jason’s car has honestly been the easiest rental process I’ve had on Turo, so far. He was easy to communicate with and was very fast to respond to messages. Jason seems very easy going. Every contact with Jason was met with easy going and understanding responses. I will definitely rent from him again. I’ve already extended atleast twice in this rental period. The Honda Civic was very clean, easy access to pickup, and ran very smooth. Thank you.
Crystal K. - August 5, 2019

Jason was so friendly; he really went above and beyond to ensure that we were satisfied with the conditions of our vehicle. He was extremely easy to contact and get ahold of and he took care of us in the best way. Our family highly recommends that you rent through him!

My experience renting from Micah was absolutely perfect. The car ran amazing, and I got easily 48mpg. The car itself is a little bit older but performs extremely well and was very reliable. Micah is a very kind person who was very helpful at the start of the rental, all the way until the end of the rental. He even checked in to see how things are going which I appreciated. I will definitely be recommending Micah and his vehicle to others. Thank you so much. 🙏🏼

A perfect experience! Kate met me at the airport right on time with a sparkling clean car. She was prompt and full of aloha spirit. :) This car's trunk is surprisingly big! I was able to fit two gigantic suitcases in the back and I still had space left over. It rained a ton while I was in Hilo (it was hurricane season!) but this lil' car handled everything just fine. No leaking, no issues at all. And I really enjoyed the bluetooth stereo system, too. Big thumbs up.
Alexandra F. - August 28, 2018

Melissa's car was as described, convenient pickup and return at the airport. Melissa had great communication and checked with us during our 2 month rental to see how everything was going. The car was clean and full of gas when we arrived. We would recommend Melissa and her car to fellow travelers.

Richard was a spectacular host, from the moment we landed in Hilo we were treated like family. There were a few unexpected changes that came up throughout our trip, and Richard never had any complaints about adjusting his plans to meet our needs. When we make our way back we will definitely be repeat customers. Mahalo!
Andrew L. - January 29, 2019

We rented the car for 3 days. Pick up and return was without any problem. It’s a new car and perfect when you wanted a car that uses less gas. Communication was good before and during the rental period
Rene L. - January 15, 2019

Micah was amazing. He was incredibly responsive, and really flexible, always available and willing to brainstorm ideas on how to make the changes in my trip convenient for me. He was generous, willing to help with so much, and generally and consistently went above and beyond his host duties. By far the best host I’ve come across in my years of travel. The car itself was great. Got me all around the island and back again. The fact that it’s a hybrid also made filling up the tank pleasant by not being expensive. I highly, highly recommend this car and Micah.
Dawn M. - November 22, 2018

Lisa and Sparky (an apt car nickname!) were such a blessing for my long-term rental through Turo. I saved big time over using a rental agency, plus got a cooler car than they’d ever have. Lisa was always helpful and communicative with the car stuff, and Sparky was a flawless ride. Comfy, super-fuel efficient, and safe. Very easy stickshift too, no clunky gears or hard transitions. Nice sound system too! Highly recommend Sparky, and greatful for the aloha that Lisa brings. A consummate host!
Drake L. - December 19, 2018

Katherine made going to the big island one of the best experiences! She was very flexible with pickup and drop off times. The car was clean and fully filled/fueled. Very easy to text and call. Will definitely make sure her car is available again for the next trip back! Mahalo!
