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.
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.
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.
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.
Skip the rental car counter
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.
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.
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.
Lourdes was a great host. The 124 makes for a fun drive around the island.
Literally perfect experience. Qi was awesome to work with and extremely flexible in all areas. The car was pristine and a blast to drive around in Hawaii. Will definitely rent again if I’m back.
This camaro was fantastic for our island adventures, the convertible was so much fun driving through the Pali over to Kailua! This car definitely made our trip a lot more exciting, highly recommended. Zachary was easy to communicate with, and the pick up/drop off was flawless. Thank you again Zachary!
This was my second time booking with nick and it was just as great as the first time. I accidentally booked the wrong dates and didn’t realize it until I was trying to look for the car in the parking structure. Nick was quick to respond and helped to accommodate to the situation by allowing me to rent another car. He was understanding and kind about the situation. The car was clean, with good AC, and good mileage. Thank you again, Nick.
Great car, great on gas. It was perfcet for our trip! Thanks David!
Mia was awesome! The car is super fun to drive and looks brand new. If you want a smooth car rental experience while in Oahu don’t hesitate and contact Mia. Highly recommended ! Mahalo !
Thanks to Shawn for a well-maintained car and reliable support.
I only want EV's and this KIA is my new OAHU first choice...get off gas and into class...Ed is great. Love the ocean. the air...get this car...
Trevor was friendly, great at communicating and explaining the Tesla. Highly recommend renting from him. The car was super clean and very fun to drive. Will rent from Trevor again. Thanks
Communication was good, only problem is there were bugs in the car. Other than that great!
The leaf was great. Bryant made the pick up and drop off at the airport super easy. Pick up and drop off was quicker and easier than my pals who went with other companies. The Nissan Leaf was a solid car. If you don't plan on constantly driving to the North Shore or around the Island every day and just need a local car this leaf should do it. I mainly used the supercharger at the Electric company or took advantage of free charging at local malls and targets. I drove to Giovanni Shrimp truck from waikiki beach and took advantage of the Supercharger at Dole Plantation and suggested you do the same. Overall enjoyed a week with the leaf. Bryant was always there to answer questions and I even took up some of his suggestions in a laminated paper he leaves for your pleasure. Thank you Bryant
I cannot explain how amazing Shamsul is. His friend’s pick us up and dropped off from and at the airport. It was amazing because he was texting me the whole time and making sure they picked us up exactly where we are. I would book from Shamsul again if I ever visit Honululu again. His crew are every friendly and would give us so many suggestions. I’m just happy with this service :)
Adam was perfectly on time and his car is clean, comfortable and easy to drive. Perfect for getting around the island.
The car was nice and inexpensive compared to similar listings.
WE ALWAYS DO BUSINESS WITH MILES , ANYTIME I COME TO HAWAII.
This is my first experience with Turo and I have to say that Shamsul was great and the whole process was very simple and easy. I would highly recommend Turo and Shansul if you’re going to Oahu.
There not bran new but well maintained. No problems. Great price. Good owner...
Very accommodating. Rachael is helpful and willing to deliver the car. The car was amazing. Also, she delivered the car which was the biggest help. This is helpful when I want to use Turo again.
We were a little nervous at first, this being the first time we'd used Turo. However, we could not be more pleased with how this turned out. First, Shams (Shamsul) is super friendly, and very communicative. The level of service and thoughtfulness was very high, and we will definitely work with Shams again during any future trips to Oahu. We rented a convertible, and it was clean, and in great condition. Fantastic experience. Thanks again!!
Jayson's 535i was a beast to drive. Plenty of comfort and plenty of power. I really enjoyed driving this vehicle. And AC out here in the heat was spot on.
Audi's Ford C-Max was the best. Great on mileage, comfortable car. Audi and his wife were great at getting back to me quickly. Definitely recommend getting his car if you're in Oahu.
This car is nothing fancy but it gets the job done. Chuney was extremely pleasant and flexible with my needs, more than he needed to be, and I am very appreciative of his willingness to go the extra mile for me. Had a great time in Hawaii!
It was everything perfect with the car! Jonathan was great and made everything looks very easy. The car is Great!!!
Car was clean, fun, and cheap! Perfect for a day or two to cruise around in Hawaii!
Easy pickup instructions, great car, highly recommend.
Moving out of my dorm was fairly difficult, but the space inside Skye’s car definitely made it easier. Amazing on gas, and easy to handle. Would definitely recommend to all my friends who plan on visiting!
Amazing car, and amazing service - so friendly and made our trip an absolute pleasure!
Albara was very helpful as I was a first time user of this service. He was accommodating and the car was in good driving condition. Slightly messy but I could live with it. Thanks!
No issues at all with the mustang for the whole trip. Pickup and drop off were painless and on time to the minute. Was awesome having a convertible to drive while on Oahu. Thanks!!
Katie's mustang was perfect for the island! Drives smooth and sounds great!
Steve made my experience on Oahu very easy! He came in person to drop off and pickup the car at the Honolulu airport. He even helped give me a ride to and from the airport. Steve goes above and beyond and I will definitely be renting with him on my next trip!
I would definitely recommend Billie. My flight came in a bit early and he was able to accommodate me. He provided clear instructions on where we were to meet and helped me with my luggage when he arrived. He’s incredibly nice and gave me a run down of everything I needed to know. He even provided water! His car is extremely clean and nice. His communication was superb and very personable. When my trip came to an end, the drop off went as smoothly as pick up. I would definitely use him over a rental car company any day.
Kevin was extremely pleasant to rent from. The vehicle was clean and ran properly And he is easy to communicate with.
Were happy with our first experience. Ken was good at keeping in touch when needed.
Renting Kyo’s car for the week was a great example of why Turo is better than a typical rental agency. He picked us up exactly on time, at the curb of the airport and we dropped him at his condo about 8 mins away. He gave us the ins and outs of the car and we were off on our Hawaiian vacation. The car was the perfect size for our 2 suitcases and extra bags and for the notoriously small Oahu parking spots. The ride was zippy and comfortable, though it doesn’t have some typical modern features like a back up cam, automatic headlights, or a working sunroof. Kyo was a fantastic host and the car was a huge convenience for us. Great value and great find!
Adam was terrific to work with! I didn’t read the description closely and rented a car without air. As soon as one with air became available, he contacted me and offered to trade. So nice. He was super nice and helpful and made the whole process very easy. Would 100% rent from him again.
This car was just what we needed to explore the island. We got to from her pickup to the dole plantation, Aulani, to Waikiki and Hanauma bay in our trip and barely used a quarter of her tank. Great host! Only thing we noticed was that the AC didn’t really work unless on full blast setting, which just gave us more reason to roll down the windows and enjoy the island air! Definitely recommend using Cindy’s Ford Fiesta!
The Hyundai Elantra was the perfect car for my sister and I to get from point A to point B. It’s easy to fit in parking spots, reliable, and everything worked well on the car. Kevin and his wife were very accommodating with our pick up/drop off from the airport. They take great care of their car!
I enjoyed my first experience using Turo. Phillip's car was a lot of fun, and I really enjoyed using the convertible top when driving along the roads of Oahu.
Johanes’ PT Cruiser was extremely clean and drove great! His customer service and response time was unparalleled. Pick-up and drop-off was extremely fast and easy. 11/10 would rent from him again.
The mustang was a dream to drive. Jacky made it so easy and gave me plenty of information about the car and what to see around the island. I would recommend.
Sam was awesome very professional and I can’t wait to let all my clients and friends know about him!!
Everything about Megan’s car was perfect! Great gas mileage, clean, new, etc. Megan is also super flexible and very punctual with her responses. If j come to Hawaii anytime soon, I will definitely be renting from Megan again. Thank you!!
Jacky made it easy for us to pick up the car and we thoroughly enjoyed our time with it. The recommendations on what to do and where to go really topped it off!
Awesome car, well maintained. Perfect car for a day trip in Oahu. Everything was clean and ready to go. Thanks Dan for being flexible with location! If you drive stick this is the car you want to rent.
Perfect car for what we needed. Never had issues finding parking because this tiny little car fit anywhere we needed it to. The owner made pickup and dropoff very easy because the car has a lock box for the key. If you need something for 2 people thats fun, GREAT on gas, and able to park anywhere this is the rental you need to get. Cheers from California.
The Fiat was an awesome car to drive around the island, easy to park,great on gas,and comfortable enough for 3 people. I actually rented the same car from Naomi before, Naomi was great. That's why I rented her car again.
Rented Larry's car for a few days on my honeymoon and thoroughly enjoyed. A+ all around. Thanks for a great experience Larry!
David was a true Oahu ambassador. His communication and organization was on point! There were no worries with the car, and it came as advertised. There is a reason this guy has really good reviews!
Great communication & super super friendly! We had a blast touring around with the top down & music up! Highly recommend!
Perfect two sitter car was great for my trip to Hawaii. The car is great on gas! I was in Hawaii for 5 days & only had to get gas twice. $35 fills the tank. Carla made it a great experience! Will rent again soon on my next adventure.
Great car! It was my first time using Turo and Gavin was very nice, helpful and responsive during my trip. Would definitely recommend!
Great car with awesome MPG! Gavin was quick to respond to all my questions especially for pickup and drop off. Really nice to coordinate with! Car was also very clean when I picked it up. Would recommend renting one of his cars on Turo.
Hey use these guys! They have new cars in excellent shape that are really clean. Their daily rates are great too. They are super accommodating and nice to work with.
YOU WON’T GO WRONG WITH SAMUEL GREAT HOST.... NICE & SMOOTH AS ALWAYZ WITH TURO MUCH MAHALO SAMUEL
Super easy going and quick communication with tommy. The car is epic (no need comment!) thank you Tommy
Adam and his girlfriend were prompt in picking me and up and dropping me off at the airport. The car was in good shape and a lot of fun to drive.
Super easy pick up and drop off, close to the airport. The car itself is just sick! Convertible which with the Hawaiian weather is exactly what you want, car is a massive head turner and great power also. Would definitely recommend and will be using again when returning
If you are staying in Waikiki and do not have cheap parking this is a doable walk to get the car from Waikiki hotel row. Car is older and not as clean as a typical rental but it works, ac is cold, gas mileage is great. I will use it again.
Everything went so well. They brought the car on time and they brought me back to the airport even when I was a little late for the car return. Thank you so much, your car brought me places I could only dream of.
Kevin made the process simple and easy! The car was clean and in good condition. When we dropped off the car they took us to the airport which was extremely kind!
Great rental experience. Very nice and on time. Car was great. Thanks so much
Renting with Christopher was super easy. He made pick up and drop off really convenient and was very personable. I definitely recommend renting his compact VW Beetle convertible as the size was perfect for navigating tight Hawaiian roads and having the top down really added to the enjoyment of our trip.
Appreciate how easy everything was! Thanks for a fantastic trip :)
Recommended. Very professional and car is clean and reliable.
Very convenient, extremely easy pick-up and return and the car is great!
Ally and Andrew are truly the best! The vehicle was perfect for my group of 4 people. We traveled to the west side of island from their place multiple times throughout our trip without any complications. It was comfortable and much cheaper than renting through a car rental place. Thank you for everything again - Matt and Thuy
I would absolutely rent from Chun kit again. This was my first time using Turo and I’m going to use it more if every rental goes as smoothly as this was.
Shamsul is the best! His pick up and delivery anywhere in town for free makes him head and shoulders the best in town! I always try to tent from him so I can have my car when I get in and have it picked up when and where I’m done. I love this service and would recommend it to anyone else. Car was awesome! Rent with this guy, you’ll be glad you did!
Great host. Fantastic system and setup. Pickup and returns are easy as.
Jei was awesome! Very communicative and quick to reply. We rented his Honda Civic. It was clean - one small crack in the back light but overall a great car that drove well and was great for the price we paid. The only thing we would critique was the fact that we paid extra to get the car dropped off and picked up from where we were staying, but ended up dropping Jei back off at his place during the pick up. Again, not a huge deal but it would’ve cost less for us to Uber/Lyft to get the car from him. He did end up picking up the car from us which was good. If you’re thinking about renting one of his cars we definitely recommend.
Great experience in Hawaii! Appreciate the great communication and the car was amazing!
Owner was very helpful front the start to beginning. Car was brand new and very clean. Great on gas mileage on this traffic-infected island. Bluetooth audio and navigation was used daily. The rear camera helped a ton parallel parking all over the island. Car also had a front and rear dash cams for incidents of it were to happen.
Gavin is a great host and I would recommend his cars to everyone who’s visiting Oahu!
The car is absolutely good choice for touring around the island, nice looking, nimble and fun to drive. The pickup & return is very easy and convenient, especially for people staying close to Waikiki.
Really well maintained car. And Jonathan is absolutely great. Always willing to help and communicates well. Will definitely book with him again!
Lou was very fast to respond and was very accommodating! I had a great time using her Mustang on this trip and would highly recommend Lou for trips in the future.
Short and sweet, this 10-mile highway twists north east from Honolulu through the lush Koʻolau mountains, offering dramatic views of the city and the hilly jungle, until the chill beach town of Kailua.
Start this drive from Kaneohe and take your Honolulu car rental alternative along this windward highway for a more rural side of Oahu with small farms, quiet beaches, and the shoot location for Jurassic Park.
Drive along the coast of the North Shore to see the beaches where pro surfers meet giant waves, and then take your Honolulu car rental alternative west to the wild, sacred, lava shoreline of Kaʻena Point.
