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

This car made our trip even more enjoyable! And John-mark was super nice and friendly and was very accommodating when we had to make a last minute change. I would highly recommend his rental!!

The booking experience and pickup instructions were clear and trouble-free. The car was perfect for what I needed as it was economical and reliable. Due to this being my first Turo rental, the drop-off was the only time I had minor issue that made me late in my logging of the return, but that was solely my fault. Cher was very gracious and understanding. She gave clear instructions for the process and also spread her own aloha through her communications with tips and offers of advising throughout the trip. I'm certain the smooth and exemplary experience I had is the reason these types of apps and programs work...I will be using Turo again for sure, and definitely from Cher the next time I'm there!

This is my first time using TURO, and thanks to Josh, I had the best first experience ever! The car was ready and waiting for me in the parking lot close to where the baggage claim is, and wasn’t a far walk at all. Josh was very quick to respond to me, and was very helpful with offering absolutely anything I needed during my trip. It was definitely a fast and easy check-in and check-out process, and I would definitely book with Josh in the future! Thank you so much!

Awesome rental! This Jeep has a fully retractable roof with the simple touch of one button. We loved it for our trip around the island. First time renting with Turo and I loved it. If you’ve ever rented a car in Hawaii you know how slow (Island time) pickup can be. This was a breeze. Thanks. Highly recommend.

Gus was awsome helpful! The car rental didn't except my debit card, so I stand at the without car... I tried Turo, and he was there in half hour and picked me up! The car was amazing, it was a great experience to drive, clean, comfortable. The best choice in Kona! Thank you Gus!

Jeep was so nice...much cleaner than any I’ve rented from regular rental companies. We had compliments on it on several occasions. We will rent from Ryan on all our future trips!

What an excellent experience! Car ran great and got us around the island with no problem, and the added features (cooler, beach stuff, etc) were amazing. One of the best Turo's so far. Would absolutely rent again.

Mahalo nui Adrianna and hubby. This was my first time using turo so I wasn’t sure what to expect. My flight was delayed 2.5 hours and they were so flexible coordinating pickup/dropoff at the airport. Adrianna checked in via text throughout the trip. The car itself was clean, had great a/c, and drove great. Would definitely rent from them again.

John was great host for a small quick trip. Made pick up at late simple and great experience also. I appreciate the help and the car was a fun touch for my day of rest and made it memorable driving adventure with my girl.
Chaz B. - September 17, 2019
Jeep Wrangler Unlimited 2019
Only in 1 Word, AMAZING!!! The Jeep is New realy NEW and John was very friendly if you will come to Big Island this is the best option for sure, in this island you need to have 4X4 car to enjoy all the routes and with the retractable roof you will have a very good experience. See you next time John..

This is my first time with Turo and honestly this experience went far beyond my expectations. The car was absolutely perfect (plus it's an hybrid ...so great mileage). The owner has been extremely available and responsive (answering my way too many questions :)). If you are visiting big island don't bother looking for a car rental agency. This is the car you are looking for.

The car is in great condition. Perfect for going around the big island. Pick up and delivery was very easy. Josh made this trip very convenient, especially if you are a first time user.

'Stang' was super cool, drive great, sounded awesome! Great way to see the Big Island with the top down! It was hot, humid and sunny, but we slathered on the sunblock, and ran with the top down... A/C worked well when we needed to have the top up due to rain, but still hot and humid. Thanks Josh, we really enjoyed our trip. Off to Ohau for the next leg of our island vacation!

Kaleo worked with us from start to finish to make our rental with him go as smoothly as possible. This was critical because we were traveling with a toddler, car seat and luggage. Extremely responsive and honest. I would highly recommend his vehicles whenever you fly into Kona, Hawaii.
Gabriele P. - October 7, 2019

This car was a fantastic way to explore Oahu, and really made our trip. John was the perfect host and I would highly recommend to anybody looking to hire a car in Oahu! Thank you and Aloha!

It was a pretty awesome experience with Jon’s Jeep. First the pickup and return was super convenient - walking distance to the airport. Then the car is perfect. It took us all around Big Island. We also took tons of amazing photos with this instagrammable Wangler. And Jon is the best host. We had some unexpected situation right before we scheduled to return the car. We texted him and he responded quite soon and kindly adjusted to our reservation extension need. Big big thanks to Jon! Save our life! It was an unforgettable experience with this car. I would definitely book this car again next time I visit Big Island.

Smooth trip with Elizabeth’s Honda Element. Even though it’s dated, everything worked well and it was the perfect sized car for touring the Big Island with the family.

Kaleo made our first experience with Turo amazing! Extremely easy to deal with and very helpful. Communication was A1 and even helped me with questions in regards to the trip and not his vehicle. Was nice to have one less thing to worry about while traveling to Hawaii for the first time with 2 kids. Thanks Kaleo!
Jose C. - October 12, 2019

Kaleo's Kia Soul was extremely clean and ran very smooth. Definitely a well maintained and cared for vehicle. Communication from Kaleo was amazing and very accommodating with my corrections and drop off time adjustment request for my rental return. Much easier than renting with one of the car companies nearby! Looking forward to renting again on our next visit!
Melissa S. - October 12, 2019

Extraordinary service! Made my trip so much easier. The car was amazing to drive and well maintained. 10/10 would recommend!

Ram Promaster City 2016
This vehicle was perfect for our 5 day big island adventure. We were looking for a low budget, simple vacation to explore Hawaii on island time—this is it! With so many beautiful things to experience here, we really enjoyed location freedom that van camping allows. With a little research and planning, finding a safe place to park and sleep for the night was a lot easier than expected. Equipped with a bed, ice chest, plenty storage and great gas mileage—we will be back!! Thanks Orlando!

The car was super clean and great! We spent our honeymoon on the Big Island and LOVED the Subaru. My wife and I are wanting to buy a Subaru Crosstrek after such a great week with such a great car. Tony was great at communicating and pick up and drop off at the Kona Airport was quick and easy. Would HIGHLY recommend! We'll definitely be renting from him again next time we're back!

Erika’s Dodge Journey isn’t the newest, flashiest car but it did the job. It took us from A-Z and back. It was a last minute booking and the 7 passenger seating worked out sell for us. Thank you.

Kaleo is a top notch provider. The Jeep we borrowed was perfect for all the big island conditions. Particularly enjoyed the heavily tinted rear window with our little 2 year old in the car seat in the back; he was so comfortable the whole time. Mahalo

It was very nice since the moment I contacted him! I asked to change the schedule one hour earlier and then 2 hours later for the check out and he agreed in both’ Very friendly guy and flexible with everything’ I am very happy with his car and service! I will definitely book some his cars again! And I hope the gladiator can be for rent as well :)

BOOK THIS JEEP NOW! David and Dixie are the most spectacular hosts, and this Jeep is awesome. Phenomenal top-down walkthrough, amazing recommendations, super friendly, and totally accommodating.

Tony was amazing in every aspect. So patient and always eager to help. The Jeep is great also. The Jeep has hill descent which made the drive down Waipi’o Valley so effortless. Also with not needing to do any cleaning before returning the car to Tony, made the experience even better and not having to waste time. If you want to get around on the Big Island, look no further. Tony is your man. Again, thank you so much Tony!

The car was amazing and the owner offered us a lot of options and flexibility. Spotlessly clean and practically brand new, it had thousands of cool details and several extras like carplay, strong clima bizone, high quality stereo, removable hard top, extra lighting... becoming a very comfortable option. The engine is powerful and very sweet with no excessive consumption. Its the coolest car I have ever rented, totally recommendable!!!

Jay was great. Car was there at the airport on time and easy to find. He made the return even easier when I texted him the day of to return early and he met me at the airport to grab the keys. Overall a great experience - quick responses to texts, great car that is perfect for the weather and highways of Kona.

The Jeep Wrangler from „Overisland“ is a blast. Newest model, clean, top geared, eye-catching color, highest standard and individually customized by the owner. Pick-up and Drop-off at Kona Airport was as easy and precise as the communication. I easily could rent the car for two extra days. We got some snorkeling gear for some extra, which was really fun. Final Cleaning of the car before check-out was included in the regular price, so no extra fee, which is special service at „Overisland“. I definitely would rent a car from „Overisland“ again. Mahalo Tony and Katie . Hope to see you guys again some day. Joe

Cher was great. Very nice. We talked to her once. The pickup was difficult at first because we weren’t able to find the car easily. It was Ironman weekend, so very crowded. Cher sent us pictures with a map location of the vehicle, but as first time visitors, we were easily confused at the map’s layout. The parking lot is broken up in zones and that would have helped us narrow it down much quicker. Even with that everything was good though.

Everything about renting through Overisland was great. Tony is incredibly helpful, worked with us on pickup and dropoff, and made everything as easy as we could hope for. The car was also great - Tony's additions (improved suspension, tires, lights) made us more than comfortable driving around the island, wherever we wanted to go. I can't recommend renting through Overisland enough, we'll definitely go with them next time we're on the Big Island.
Jeffrey R. - October 16, 2019
Jeep Wrangler 2019
I was a bit Leary about going with Turo as I had never heard of it. That was immediately eliminated as Tony communicated immediately and often. I was driving the nicest Jeep on the island and was reminded of this by strangers everywhere we went. Great price, great car and a great experience!
Jon B. - October 16, 2019

This was my first experience using TURO. I will definitely be using it again!! Kona Auto was amazing!! Great communication, beautiful car!! I was so happy and we saved a ton of money over traditional rentals!! Suki at Kona Auto met us at the airport with our beautiful Nissan Rogue (which was perfect for tooling around the island) and she was so pleasant and helpful!! Thank you so much for making our trip to paradise even better!! Can’t wait to return!! Aloha and Mahalo!!

First time Turo experience and couldn’t be happier with how it went. Jonathan was super easy to communicate with and made sure our trip was perfect, flew in late and car was waiting for us directly across from baggage claim. I would never consider another rental on the big island if one of Jonathan’s vehicles are available. The Jeep is fully loaded and very well taken care of. Super clean and fun to drive. The combo of the Jeep and working with Jonathan made our trip to the big island that much better. Hope it’s available next time we visit! Much appreciated.

Stephen could not have been easier to work with. While everyone else on my trip was waiting in rental car lines, Stephen was right there on the curb waiting to pick up up like we were VIP. When everyone else was rushing to get back to the rental car desk before they closed, Stephen said “just drop it off in the lot and lock the keys inside.” No sweat. Super easy. Don’t hesitate to rent from Stephen!
Jumpin J. - September 3, 2019

John's car was exactly what we needed! It served us perfectly and we were able to travel around the whole island with no issues! John was very flexible with the pick up and return in Kailua and was very easy to communicate with. Thank you so much John and we highly recommend his service!

Grant was super cool. You can only book 24 hrs in advance but Grant allowed me to pick up his truck earlier than that. He met me curbside and it was a quick pickup and quick drop off. He was flexible and patient since this was my first time using Turo. I recommend booking through him and would use his truck again. Mahalo, Grant!
