Shams did an amazing job providing a wonderful experience in renting a vehicle at reasonable price in an expensive trip like Hawaii. He was very patient, kind, and easy going. Even offered to extend the rental time in case we needed it with no extra fees. Car was clean and in great shape for the wear and tear Hawaii can have on vehicles. Would do it again if I had the chance. Great experience and great customer service. Mahalo!!!

Car was spot on for my needs , April was great at accommodating my changing to an earlier check in time So much NICER and EASIER than dealing with car rental companies Mahalo nui loa

Great people to work with. They are exceptionally accommodating the car was in fantastic condition and I will rent from these folks again. Pick up and drop off was actually easier than going through a Rent-A-Car company at the airport. They delivered the car to meet me the curb and we’re right on time they picked up the car at my convenience.

Everything was fine with the car and with the easy system for pickup and return the car. Good experience and more affordable system to rent a car in the island than the conventional car companies. Also Lee its very easy going person and make easy the communication in the web to make a good experience.

Interacting with Marla and Mark on this rental was a breeze. They were on the ball with every aspect of the car rental from the initial contact, to the pick up at the airport, to the drop off at the airport. The car ran flawlessly and the air conditioned seats were a treat. The fact that they pick you up and drop you off from the airport is a HUGE plus on the big island. I highly recommend the car and the people behind it.

Renting from Randy went very smooth. We got picked up from the airport and dropped off to the airport. The car was clean. It had no orders. Ac was working. Everything went smoothly. I would recommend anybody who needs to rent a car, rent from Randy.

This is my first Turo experience ever. Jason made it so pleasurable I will never be renting rent-a-cars again all my future cars will be booked through Turo

Great car! Molly is very flexible with delivery, pickup, and extension of rental. I would definitely rent this car again. 🙂

Simple rental. Good if your afraid of getting something dirty, as this has been through it all. The car is located kinda far away from main pat of the island. If you have a ride great but if not an Uber there and back will get expensive. Ikaika was a great host.

Even though Rebecca could not be available for the drop off, her partner was present, on time and polite. The whole trip was smooth and easy. All communication was great. Thank you both, the car was perfect for my trip. Mahalo!

Absolutely wonderful experience in all aspects. Sandie was very proactive and anticipated all my questions regarding pick-up and return. I strongly recommend her to anyone need a rental while visiting Hawaii.

Aloha! We have had an absolutely wonderful experience with Ethan’s Mustang. The car was in perfect condition and sparkly clean. Checkin and checkout were a breeze, and Ethan was courteous and extremely understanding regarding the two changes on the length of our trip we have requested. We would love to book Ethan’s Mustang again and would definitely recommend it to our family and friends. Mahalo!

Great trip! The car was awesome, great gas mileage as she said, and we hardly had to put any had back in to fill it up after- a plus on Hawaii where gas costs a bit more! They were easy to communicate with and helped us out a lot. Thanks!
Tina C. - August 2, 2019

Awesome customer service! Nice stylish rides that are clean and good on gas. I'll definitely be returning! For all your rental needs in Hawaii Jeff got you covered !!!!

First of all, this Hyundai is insanely good on gas-& seriously the best vehicle for this huge island! It drove smooth and had plenty of room—super clean! Plus! Rebecca is such a sweet person, so accommodating and quick to respond! Looking forward to renting from you again! Mahalo :)

Richard was an amazing host. We had a great time with his car. If we had a question he was very fast with answering and taking good care of us! Thank you so much for the great Turo-Experience. We can reccommend everyone to rent Richard's car!

This was our first time using Turo and it was a great experience. Cher made the pick up and drop off extremely easy and convenient. Her little fiesta was perfect for us to drive around the island and got great gas mileage. It was clean and the AC was cold and very nice on humid Hawaiian days. I would definitely recommend Cher when looking for a car to rent on the Big Island.

Michelle was a bit late for pick up and drop off (so one might want to book an earlier drop off if one needs to grab a flight right after just in case) but she was really lovely and had good reasons, the car comes with a lot of added bonuses ( national park pass, snorkeling gear etc...) and the gas per mileage is great, loved the car and loved renting from Sarah/Michelle, I 100% recommend!
Mélissa N. - August 9, 2019

Paul C. - July 25, 2019

Booked Cher’s car last minute (the night before) and everything went smoothly - from pick up to drop off to communication. It was my first time using Turo and I’d definitely rent from Cher again!
Taylor M. - August 10, 2019

Not only was the car smooth and a great size, pick up and return on Rebecca’s end was extremely convenient and flexible! It really took the stress out of renting a car and hassling with that after and before a flight. Amazing time!
Bethany G. - August 18, 2019

John Mark made it easy for me, and it was a pleasure dealing with him. I was able to book a last minute trip, and pick off and drop off was a breeze. AC works well on the Mustang, which is important in Kona!
Chris K. - August 15, 2019

This was my first time using Turo, and Lee made it very easy. Pick up was a breeze, as was drop off. The Fit was perfect and did the job of taking me all around the island. Fuel economy was ideal. Car was clean and well maintained. Lee was friendly and responsive. Will look up Lee and this car again.
Colin F. - August 16, 2019

Sandie and her partner were amazing. This was our first experience with Turo and we look forward to renting again in the future next time we are in Hawaii. The car is easy to drive, great on gas mileage and fun! Mahalo!

Great car, love that it’s a hybrid! Easy to pickup and drop off, will definitely be renting the car again!

I wish I could give more than five stars to Lee--and her car. The car was the perfect size for us (2 adults, one child) and our luggage, exactly what we were looking for. The car was comfortable and reliable with good gas mileage (important in Hawaii!). Lee herself was very quick to respond to any questions we had, so we knew we could depend on her if needed. She was also flexible with our pick-up and drop-off, both of which ended up being slightly different than our original plan. If you need a small-ish car with a great owner, contact Lee!

Marcia picked us up and we dropped off the car at the airport (for an extra fee). The car was clean and had a full tank of gas. 600 miles was plenty for our three day trip. Good communication.
Cristina P. - August 13, 2019

Great car for our trip. Communication and convenience made planning easy!
Susan J. - August 15, 2019
Chrysler Pacifica 2007
The pacifica was great. Bang for your buck with lots of room. Super easy pick up/drop off. Very flexible late drop off time. Air conditioner works perfectly. Handles fine. Drove half way around the island with no problems. Everything mechanical works. Had lots of fun. If I had to absolutely gripe, the gas gauge is kinda wonky so I ended up paying more gas than I had to for the return. There might be something up with the drive train as it kinda chugs on acceleration. But for the price and amount of money saved from using a traditional rentacar service its nothing to complain about.
Kelly S. - August 16, 2019

Cher was super helpful. I had an easy breezy trip with her car. I would use this car again.

Please take care of Emilia's car. My wife and I spent three days touring the Big Island in Emilia's spotless and well cared for car. It was the perfect choice for our trip. The car runs and drives better than new. She has a little notebook with info on operation of the cars standard features and the ones she has added (like bluetooth connectivity). Communication was great and the pickup and dropoff at the airport was very convenient. All to gether the best Turo experience I've had. Mahalo Emilia!

This trip was absolutely made by Shelley's amazing car and the ease to book it. From the beginning, Shelley communicated extremely well and made sure I felt comfortable throughout the rental all the way until I handed the keys back. amazing experience, look forward to booking again with her. Mahalo!

I highly recommend this Camry. Not only a big win for the environment but it gets you everywhere you need to go on the island. For a reasonable hiker all other off road places are accessible through beautiful hikes, no need for an off road vehicle. Jeff was the perfect host: car was impecable, punctual and clear and timely communication. Mahalo.

Our first time with Turo. We won’t travel any other way from here on out. The car was awesome. It was clean, convenient, and carefree. We walked out from the airport, hopped in the car and went. Dropping off was a breeze as well. Thank you April!!

The car was flawless, no problems at all. I'm very appreciative of Jason and his partner. Our flight was scheduled to arrive at a late hour but was delayed and arrived very late. The car was delivered to us cheerfully with no waiting on our part. Return of car was at 5:30 in the morning. Again Jason was on time and cheerful. I highly recommend Jason and his service, Our experience was easy and pleasant.

Max B. - August 6, 2019

Jeff's car was perfect. The whole trip, we only gassed up once! A/c was cold and pick up/ drop off was super easy. I would reccomend a hybrid instead of any Jeep on Big Island as you can't take the rental Jeeps off road anyways so you might as well save some gas money!

Namho was extremely friendly and knowledgeable. He was early to pick us up and right on time to drop us off. He gave us a quick tour of downtown Kona and referred us to some of the best sites to see and some great restaurants. The corolla ran great, had cold ac and even had Bluetooth capability. I would definitely book with Namho again. Mahalo!

Mike and his Tesla we’re awesome from the beginning to the end of our trip. We arrived earlier than expected and the car was already waiting at the airport for us with fresh cold water bottles. Easy pickup&return, very clean and free parking almost every where we went due to the EV plate. The car is very spacious and comfortable. Mike provided us with lots of useful amenities for the beach and hiking. He also provided a guide for our journey in Oahu. Great places to visit, eat or simply enjoying the views. Would definitely rent from Mike again. Mahalo for everything!
