Take a deep breath and relax into your island life. The capital city of Hawaii is a place with plenty to do, but nobody is out to do it in a hurry.
So take your time exploring the shops of the Ala Moana Center, historic landmarks, and cultural sites of the city like Iolani Palace, but when you’re over the rush hour traffic in town, make sure to head out and revel in the natural beauty, perfect beaches, and endless outdoor activities Oahu Island has in store.
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.
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: a beautiful famous beach, 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 car to the south end of the city, and swim with a wild flurry of tropical fish and sea turtles.

The best way to see every side of Oahu is to book a car on Turo, so you can leave downtown Honolulu behind and bask in the wide variety of natural delights of Hawaii’s most populous island. Safe travels!Book the perfect car
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 will take you to Kaneohe with two great waterfall hikes, a farm with fresh poi, and the serene Valley of the Temples.
Head out 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.
Ginos Tucson was exactly what we needed. The pick up and drop off from the airport is way better than dealing with a rental car center. Thanks again Gino.
Great vehicle and thorough instructions throughout the reservation. Reasonably priced considering the inflated rental rates in Hawaii. I would definitely rent from them again!
Everything was fantastic. Car was nice and clean. Car charger was included, tissue, and hand sanitizer. The Host was very thoughtful, even included some really great popular tourist attractions. Would definitely book again.
Everything went smoothly with delivery of car. We enjoyed driving the Land Rover around Oahu. Price was reasonable for type of vehicle. We got to see more places on our vacation so we were happy to get this car during our time in Hawaii. Using this service worked out well and was a better deal than going through a rental agency. We would use turo.com again and Remi was very easy to communicate with as well as helpful with giving us some tips of places to go while here!!
Jason was extremely responsive and kind! His Model X Tesla was impeccably clean. Any questions I had about my concerns on charging locally, he quickly answered and also gave a bunch of suggestions on tourist attractions. I highly recommend renting through him!
Awesome rental. Clean, spacious, incredibly comfortable. It was honestly nicer than some Car Rental Agency vehicles.
Suchado and Sherman so ridiculously nice, imagine if car rental companies were like that
Great communication and awesome car. It’s a gas sipper that was definitely helpful with the current gas prices. Would highly recommend! Thanks again!
AWESOME EXPERIENCE!!!... VERY PROFESSIONAL AND ON TIME... BETTER AND MUCH QUICKER/EASIER THAN CAR RENTAL AGENCY!!!... HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!
The Jeep was awesome and smooth as a Cadillac. Highly recommend using Kirk for your rental needs. Painless process compared to using other rental companies. Thanks again.
This was the absolute best car rental experience I've ever had! Lei and her family were so accommodating and nice, the car was amazing (perfect condition brand new, clean) and the process was so much better than a rental center. Thank you Lei (and family) for making this experience amazing! Aloha
Great alternative to renting from the big expensive rental companies. Justin was great to deal with and even delivered his car to me for a reasonable fee.
Great guy. My first time in Turo and if all hosts are like him, I will never use a traditional car rental agency again. Freaking fantastic guy.
5 stars and then some. Super friendly and very helpful. Better than the big commercial car rental companies. I hope to use again.
We had a wonderful vacation. Rental companies were way over priced and we discovered Turo. Kevin was an excellent host and even allowed us to extend our rental days. We were able to explore the entire island and what better way to do it than in a jeep.
Chun is such a nice and friendly guy!He was very accommodating and helpful. He made the car rental process so easy.
My wife and I had an amazing time in Oahu with this rental. Tim was detailed and responsive during the rental process.
Very nice e reliable vehicle with plenty of space for whatever you have planned. Easy to get to from the airport. And an INCREDIBLE PRICE compared to the standard rental companies. Would definitely recommend using his car for whatever your needs are. Thanks Pete!
Clayton was so wonderful and made this so easy. I don’t think I’ll ever use a rental car agency again. Highly recommend!
Renting a car from John was easy, fast and reasonably priced. Big rental companies beware... Entrepreneurs like John are offering better services at a better price. And to top it off, its great knowing my money is going to a nice hard working person like John.
Jeep was super clean ran great the rental process was convenient, Alison is easy to communicate with. Perfect island rental would 100% rent again
The trip was perfect! I loved the vehicle! It was the perfect size for a vacation. A lot of space for both luggage and car space. Kekoa was super kind and helpful. The car rental process was very smooth and easy!
Great information and communication. Pick up and drop off went smoothly. Jeep was in good condition and as described. I’ll never stand at the rental car counter again!
Friendly owner, and a very smooth pickup and delivery. Car was clean, fueled, and ready as promised. A big step up from what a rental agency would offer. And no waiting in long lines!
Thank you so much Rony you made the rental process a breeze and provided my family and myself with a beautiful SUV. Best customer service and hospitality.
What a Fantastic rental interaction our family had with Dustin. He was puntuale, accommodating and all around great guy. This was our fist time with Turo and Dustin made the rental process super simple and safe.
Great experience! Caroline was so helpful with precise communication and was super helpful throughout! Better than rental companies for sure!!! We would use Caroline again everytime we are in Hawaii!!
Smooth rental process. No problems at all. David was very helpful and responds quickly.
Devon was great really friendly and gave us great tips to avoid high parking fees. Everything was super simple the car was perfect and we felt super safe driving it. The whole set up was so convenient. We were able to drive to basically every part of the island for 4 days on one tank of gas. I recommend paying the cleaning fee cause you will get sand in the car. And to fill the tank was about 40$ with the current gas prices. The 50$ fee to give it back at any level may be worth it depending on your trip plans. Highly recommend booking this car. Wish I could take it back home with me!
Anna was incredibly informative and friendly during our entire Turo process. The car we rented was great for our trip and she made things easy by giving us tips that would make our rental process as smooth as possible! Going with her was a great decision for our vacation. Thanks Anna!
Just wow! Superb Jeep, superb pricing, excellent service. My family had an amazing time around the island in the Wrangler Unlimited. Due to this experience, I will never use rental agency any more and only use Turo for all my rental needs. Thank you Eduardo.
Tracy was amazing from the beginning to the end! This has been the smoothest experience I’ve ever had and truly will be moving forward with Turo over rental companies. Tracy effectively communicated prior to flight by obtain my flight info as she dropped the car off directly to me at the airport. The car was clean and met every need while in Honolulu. I recommend Tracy and will be renting with her again when I return. Thank you for your mindfulness and pleasantries, Mahalo!!
Very clean car in great condition. Scott was very attentive and accommodating. Delivery and return was seamless. Much better than car rental companies where you spend lots of time waiting for your car.
Branson is a great host- very friendly and accommodating for a last minute rental. SUV is in perfect condition and drove like dream. Highly recommend and would schedule again. Thanks Branson!
The car was great and Raquel and Dash were so accommodating. I am not sure why we would ever rent from the rental car companies again.
This vehicle is in great shape. It was perfect for all our adventures in Oahu. Salvatore and his wife were good at communicating and made this rental process smooth sailing. 100% would recommend!
Rental was perfect and half the price of the big rental car companies. Car was new, clean and exactly as advertised. Masaaki is a very nice guy! So fun to deal with and extremely accommodating! Many thanks for making our Oahu trip wonderful!
Was using Turo for the first time and was skeptical, but this beat my expectations. No standing in the line or lugging the bags to the Rental center. Was very convenient.. Jessica is a great host and waited patiently to deliver the car at the airport, even with delays. The check-in and check-out process was super easy. Thanks Jessica for adding to our great Hawai holiday! Oh, the SUV was very well maintained, cleaned, and better than the typical rentals at similarly priced vehicles..
Gavin was very helpful he walked me thru the rental process it was my first time use this application the car was perfect for my family of 7 its was very clean and well taking care of would definitely recommend you guys to rent this car.
Easy pick up. On time. Much better than a car rental. Was my first time trying Turo.
Very responsive and prompt in meeting up. Car was great and really close to the Waikiki area. Getting this car was so much better than going through a normal rental agency.
Great car and great people. Extremely accommodating and helpful with guiding me through my first Turo rental process.
Great first experience with Turo. Anna Marie was very informative and easygoing. The Honda Pilot was perfect for getting around with beach necessities! Definitely better than any rental car companies.
Kolbert is awesome, he made the rental process EASY. The car was was perfect for our group of 4!
Rental process was smooth. Great communications and a great vehicle for seeing Hawaii. Would definitely rent again from Catherine.
Matt was so helpful with delivery and pickup! Car was in perfect condition and at a fraction of the cost of current rental cars in HI. Such a better experience dealing directly with Matt instead of a rental agency!
Charlie’s Mercedes is a phenomenal option for this island and a family of 5. Fits all comfortably and there’s plenty of room for luggage. This vehicle does very well on gas, and you need that here with the gas prices. Charlie started communication from the moment I booked. Always quick to respond. Friendly and very punctual. Will definitely use again when I come back.
Jerod’s Mitsubishi Outlander was great for our group of 5 and all of our luggage. We added delivery of the vehicle to the airport and 2 coolers for our beach trips, super convenient. Easiest car rental process I’ve ever experienced. Jerod was easy to communicate with. Will definitely rent from Jerod again next time I am in Oahu.
Very responsive and helpful throughout the whole rental process! Great experience, thank you!
Miguel was very friendly and responsive. He made the rental process simple and stress free. I will definitely rent from Miguel again on my next trip to Oahu.
Scott was extremely accommodating for our stay in Hawaii! He met us at the airport and the whole rental process went very smoothly.
Max was awesome! So easy to communicate with and responded immediately The car was clean and had all the amenities promised (and more). This experience sold me on Turo. I may never use a rental agency again!
We enjoy our trip to Hawaii and Raul was a big part of that. He made the car rental process easy. His vehicle was very clean and fun to drive. Mahalo!
We used Travis’ Jeep for a week and had a blast. Take the top down and bring the outside in. It was super clean, low miles, good looking. Travis met us on time picking up and dropping off. It really was convenient - no standing at the rental counter waiting. We are planning a return trip and we will definitely be renting w Travis. The only downside is that now my wife wants a Jeep 😊
Easy pickup and drop off procedures! Lovely car that was essential for our trip. Way better than dealing with a rental car agency!
Nadia was very nice, car was great and we had a great time. She was also flexible when we needed to change our travel plans. We would definitely use Turo and Nadia again when we travel to Oahu. Much better than traditional car rental companies. Thanks Nadia!
Colleen is an excellent host! She waited over an hour for us to get thru the health screening after our flight delay. She was prompt to meet us at drop off as well. Car was clean and spacious and it was so nice not having to do the whole rental car counter experience.
Anna's Jeep was great and provided some free goodies like beach chairs etc. She is also very communicative so the whole rental process was stress free.
While in Hawaii none of the rental companies had any cars available! I ended up finding out about Turo And can’t say anything else, but great things Richard the person we rented from was exceptional help to pick us up and drop us off at the airport!!! Totally recommend!
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 for an incredible driving experience 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.
