I have never rented a vehicle before and was very nervous about the whole process. Greg made my experience such a breeze and my vacation was the BEST EVER!! Greg was superb and definitely one of the best guy to work with. He brought and picked up the car at the airport for my convenience and answered any questions I had about the car while on my trip. The BMW SUV was so fun and inexpensive to drive. Thank you Greg for making my stay in Hawaii such a memorable experience

Kalena and Jessica were the best turo hosts we have ever had. Having such lovely hosts made our trip to the big island relaxing and pleasant. They went above and beyond in kindness and generosity. The Kia we rented was perfect in every way—clean, easy to drive, good on gas, lots of space. I wish turo would allow us to give this rental more than 5 stars!

Was a pleasure to rent from Jodie, very reasonably priced car, prompt communications and hassle free drop off & pick up the car at the Kona airport from Jodie's team. I found, Jodie says what she does and does what she says. A bonus being, her company also offer Travel & Activity services, have found Big island can be a rush during peak time so her company can help to make an optimal itinerary by doing all the bookings for us. Even though the SUV has few years on it and one can spot minor cosmetic wear & tear if they really put an attention to the details, I found this SUV to drive like new, felt new and in top condition. Much better priced and even a better vehicle than newer economic cars from Turo or from rental companies. I found this Cadillac SRX to be a comfortable cruiser for my family with 2 kids for long drives. Being this my first ever Turo rental, overall positive experience with Jodie, Cadillac SRX and Turo.

Another great Turo experience!! Kristin was incredibly easy to work and I highly recommend. Two-thumbs up! Her Subaru Outback was in perfect condition and was ideal for our trip to the Big Island. 400mi of range on a full tank so we only had to fill up once just prior to heading back to the airport. It easily accommodated our family of 5 including 3 car seats plus lots of luggage for 2 weeks of travel. Appreciated the light colored, cloth interior as we didn't have to deal with scorching hot seats.

Monica is very responsive and easy to work with. The car is in good condition, very clean and worked well across the island to Hilo from Waimea. We met Monica at her house in Kona to pick up the car by Taxi and she met us to get the car on our departure at the airport for a fee. My recommendation is to skip the taxi to her place and pay if possible to have her bring the car to the airport for pickup, this saves time. The car had USB ports and an extra USB adapter. Upon return, it’s asked to bring the car back filled up and clean through the car wash, Lex Brodie is the car wash we used the day before we were set to leave. It’s in Kona priced at $12 and was quick. Fill up is standard of any rental company and expected. It’s nice to have an SUV that takes 85 gas. I would recommend to work something out and maybe Monica will agree to include the price of a cleaning in the amount and have her take care of the cleaning. It’ll be easier for the traveler to worry about leaving versus cleaning. Overall, I would rent from Monica without a second thought. Thank you for loaning us your car, we had an amazing time!

As cars are hard to find in Hawaii so we were very excited to rent the 2021 Kia Soul from Kalena. The car was great, easy to drive and quick pick up and drop off. I would recommend to all of my family and friends and hope to rent it again for my next trip to the Big Island.

Tom went out of his way to park his nice BMW X5 at the Kona Airport when we arrived on July 9th / the vehicle was the perfect choice for our Hawaii vacation and was very comfortable in city and highway driving / too bad we were unable to extend the rental due to the next booking / Mahalo to Tom (and Kelly) for a truly memorable experience!

Garrett's 2015 Subaru Outback was the perfect vehicle for our trip to the Big Island! Plenty of room for luggage for our family of 4, and super comfortable and capable of taking us anywhere we needed to go. Garrett was a pleasure to work with and accommodated our family with drop off / pick up. I would definitely rent again from Garrett!

This was the best experience we’ve ever had renting a car. The car is beautiful and perfect for the Big Island. Robert and Lisa’s (siblings) customer service was impeccable and beyond reproach! They dropped the car off and picked it up again at the airport - at our arrival and departure areas. We highly recommend renting from Turo and Robery if you are ever in Hawaii. We will never use a commercial rental company again; we have been spoiled! Paul and Megan from Fresno, CA

Booking a rental car with Tehani and Kaai was truly an amazing experience throughout. From pickup to dropoff, they were super accommodating/flexible and a breeze to coordinate with! On top of that, Kaai was super helpful offering local tips on things to look at and places to visit. As far as recommendations go, his were the most helpful that we've gotten on our trip to Kona. Finally, the car itself was wonderful. It came in great condition, freshly cleaned looking as if it were brand new off the lot. It got us everywhere we needed to go and more offering plenty of space for all our belongings and gear. It took us all the way to the other side of the island to Volcanoes National Park and then to the top of Mauna Kea at night to see the stars no problem. Suffice to say we were very sad to part ways with it! In conclusion, on an island of some of the friendliest people we've ever met - Tehani and Kaai may have been some of the friendliest. HIGHLY recommend booking with them!

The Jeep is great for off road use and cruising the island. It was more capable than i even imagined. We were able to goto the green sand beach no problem. The A/C blows cold and the stereo rocks. It was large enough for our family of 4 with a lot of snorkeling/outdoor/beach gear. The included cooler was great. Will was very helpful and responsive. Only regret was road to mauna kea summit was closed. We will rent this Jeep again next year!

First timer ever to rent from Turo and would do it again. Hosts were very accommodating. I have a toddler with me flying me and they graciously agreed to drop off at airport and provided a carseat. I also was able to extend the drop Off date with minimal charges, thanks to the hosts. Very responsive and friendly to answer questions. The car was super clean in and out. The AC was continuously cool and strong throughout (which is extremely important with a toddler while driving at long distance around Big Island). As you know a car is a car and there’s plenty of it but you’re full experience is dependent on beginning til end of your trip which includes your interaction with people and the hosts were awesome
