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!

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.

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👍

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!

Duane was awesome, it was like borrowing from a friend. Good communication, no funny business, he even went out of his way and dropped off the car for me. Very accommodating. The truck is great for HILO also. Clean, works great, the Bluetooth works well and I get safe in it. The only thing that was hit or miss was the usb charger. Other than that couldn’t have been better.

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

We were very impressed with the ease of picking up car as well as the cleanliness of the entire car Communicating with Kristen was also easy and she responded immediately Look forward to our return trip soon

This was my first time renting a car thru Turo and I was not disappointed on bit. Once booked Nia responded quickly and answered all my questions regarding how we were getting picked up at the airport and the rest of my 1,000 questions. She even offered up a ton of good eating place suggestions since I asked her about that as well. The car itself was in top shape and drove extremely well. It was a newer model with all the bells and whistles...the driver seat actually remembered where I sit so it adjusted every time I got back in...sweet! I hope to come back soon and be able to use Nia's car again...good bye rental car companies!!

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!

Jeep Compass 2016
Daylan was AWESOME! This was my first experience using Turo & I highly recommend his Jeep Compass, my husband now wants to buy one! It was clean and spacious enough for my family of 4, which included 2 bulky car seats and there was enough room for our luggage and double stroller in the back. I absolutely loved the automatic key start, which made getting the car nice and cool for the kids super easy. Everything worked perfectly, he also offered a car charger that plugged into the cigarette lighter—very convenient if you have a droid, if not just bring your own cord and use the charger. Daylan is also a musician & he gave me a free signed CD—how cool is that? My husband was here for work so me and the kids tagged along. Our trip kept getting extended and Daylan was very flexible by continuously letting us rent the car longer. I think we were supposed to have the car for 2 days and we ended up keeping it for 7! It would have been one more night if it had been available but someone smart scooped it up! I was in a bind trying to get another car at the last minute & Daylan and his wife were so accommodating and friendly. If my second rental hadn’t worked out they were willing to drive me and the kids back to our hotel. They also allowed me to change the pick up location last minute & helped me with the kids while I checked into my new car. All in all I had an amazing experience and I highly recommend using them! Mahalo!
Siera S. - May 16, 2019

Great super clean car! We will use Kristin again when we travel to the big island. Easy to follow instructions, prompt replies, friendly and so much more convenient than airport rental cars! Honestly the car was in far better shape than the ones we have rented at the airport too!

Sarah was so easy to deal with! Her Sentra was such a smooth ride! If this car is available I highly recommend renting it!
Ashley A. - July 15, 2019
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.

My wife and I had a great time with Marcus’ Jeep. His wife Debbie was able to accommodate us with pickups and drop offs between our cruise port and her location. She also gave us a a lot of information regarding sights to see and restaurants to go to. The vehicle was very clean and a pleasure to drive around the island regardless of terrain. Overall we are more than impressed and would recommend anyone who comes to the big island to use Marcus’ vehicle to get around!

I definitely recommend her and her vehicles for your future car rental needs! Mahalo!!
