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!

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.

Carl
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.

From start to finish Jason couldn’t have been easier to work with. He picked us up at the airport right when we landed and dropped us off when we returned the car. The car was great on gas, and was super simple to drive and had every feature we needed- charging ports in center console, nice cold ac, and plenty of storage for our things. He also gave us some tips and spots to visit on the island. Thanks Jason, when were back we’ll definitely be renting again

William

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. 🙏🏼

Drake
Chevrolet Spark 2015
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
Kenneth

Riding around the Big Island in a convertible mustang has got to be on every persons bucket list. The ride was great, the car was awesome, and Peter is super easy to work with. Do not hesitate at all about this rental. We would do it again in a heartbeat.

Elieen also gave us a whole lot of tourism advice which was amazing. The car drove well and because it's a EV-hybrid we did a lot of miles for very cheap.

Marc
Toyota Camry 2012
Exceptionally clean. Convenient pickup right across from airport exit. Nice amenities in the vehicle, though lack of a backup camera on a ‘12 model year a bit disappointing. Car has a high trunk deck (not Judah’s fault!), so it’s hard to see objects behind. Powerful engine, with good fuel economy for such a spacious car: I got around 30–31 mpg. Excellent acceleration for passing on smaller highways. Vehicle needs new front rotors (you do a lot of braking on the Big Island as almost any highway or road is going up and down...steeply down in some cases); Judah has said as of today he’ll address that issue. My first Turo rental. If they’re all like this, the concept and the providers...like Judah...are winners.

Marthe
Toyota Camry 2011
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.

We wanted an “island car” that ran well and got exactly what we wanted. Car worked great, Micah was super communicative and even looped back to the airport when I left my sunglasses in the car after he dropped us off. Pleasant experience all around, would definitely rent this car again.

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.

Rich’s Camry was great. The tint on the vehicle blocked out the sun and kept us cool on our drives. The AC blows cold but often just putting down the windows and driving was the right call.

As I dropped him back off at the wonderful bed and breakfast he and his wife own, he also sent me on my way with a complimentary breakfast! So grateful. Highly recommend these two folks for any experience!

Car is in good shape for its age. Pickup from the airport parking, we were a bit late and ended up paying $5 for airport parking. - The trunk is a bit hard to open but no huge deal. - There was a smell from the wetness but got better after we opened the windows. The car seems to be owned by a company.
