in Honolulu

Take a deep breath and relax into your island life. Honolulu is a city with plenty to do, but nobody is out to do it in a hurry.

So take your time reveling in the natural beauty, perfect beaches, fresh seafood, and tons of outdoor activities. When you’re over the crowds, book a Honolulu car rental alternative to head out of the city and find a quieter side of Oahu.

Honululu Favorites

Nobody goes to Hawaii to hang around inside all day, and the best activities in Honolulu take you out into the abundance of natural beauty. Whether you’re looking for an active challenge or serious lounge session, Honolulu is your paradise.

Diamond Head

The best views of Waikiki, Honolulu, and all of Oahu are all yours when you do the 1.6 mile climb to the top of this dormant volcano. Ambitious hikers might even catch a glorious sunrise.


This bustling Honolulu area is famous for a reason: beautiful beachfront, resorts, hula shows, surf lessons, ABC stores, fireworks — everything a tourist could ask for in one fell swoop.

Hanauma Bay

For the ultimate snorkel experience, steer your Honolulu car rental alternative to the south end of the city, and swim with a wild flurry of tropical fish and sea turtles.

Hit the road

The best way to see all of the sides of Oahu is to book a Honolulu car rental alternative on Turo, so you can beat traffic early, and explore the mountains and beaches at your own speed.

Waimea Bay

In the winter, famous surfers compete here and it’s a show you won’t soon forget. In the summer, the calm waters are perfect for swimmers who want to take it easy.


About a 40 minute drive north in your Honolulu car rental alternative will take you to Kaneohe with two great waterfall hikes, a farm with fresh poi, and the serene Valley of the Temples.

Kaena Point

Head out in your Honolulu car rental alternative on this hour-long drive to hike Oahu’s oldest volcano, check out the island’s rugged, wind-swept beach, and maybe even spot an endangered monk seal.

The whole experience with Shawn is what makes me want to rent again from him! His Aloha spirit and his awesome scion was one of my better experiences on Turo. Mahalo Shawn:)

Mia was very friendly & responsive to questions I had as a first timer. Her car was clean and she was timely. I didn’t have any problems with Mia or her vehicle. I’d surely recommend using Mia’s vehicle! Thanks!

Ken was great to rent from. He was very flexible and the car was exactly as advertised and like other reviews say... the car is older but reliable with great gas mileage.

Car worked perfectly. Communication was great! The windshield could use a washing but I didn’t have to drive that long at night so it wasn’t a big deal.

Had a great experience with Robert’s Scion Xb. Really good on gas and reliable car. We spent one week driving around North Shore without any problem. Robert is an amazing host and communication was very easy. We strongly recommend.

Jarden was a great host and his car was perfect for our short trip. He made pick up and drop off extremely easy and was very accommodating. Price was right as well. I’ll never use a big rental company again.

This was my first time successfully using Turo. I had tried a couple other times in different cities but the other hosts weren't responsive. Ken was immediately responsive after my booking & throughout the reservation, takes his work seriously & puts customers first while still being supa chill & flexible! Car drove well too. I return often to Oahu and will be a regular w Ken's cars considering this very positive experience

Great renting experience! It’s very convenient to move around Oahu with this small car. Ken is very friendly and helpful. It would be even better if you stay in his Airbnb and rent his car during your stay. It makes everything easy. Highly recommended with good value.

This little guy is the perfect car if you are into just getting somewhere. The looks only matter if you are trying to impress someone. I was trying to get between multiple hikes and spending a ton extra on a car wasn't what I was interested in. Great car for doing everything.

Ken is a wonderful host and I recommend him! I finally got the hang of catching waves with the surfboard extra-totally worth it! Also, Ken is a experienced hiker and he enjoys bringing people out. I joined him the last day and it was great. Many things made my last few days possible and the car was the ride but Ken made the booking!!!

I was on Oahu for 3 days and didn’t run out of gas once after driving all around the island a few times. The car is super roomy, the ac is super cold and the aux works great. Robert was awesome, really friendly and made my trip 100x better! Thanks a million again :)
