Believe it or not, with the happenstance of all major rental companies being sold out and Lam’s accommodations, this trip would not have happen at all. Thank you!
So much easier and nicer than renting a car from a rental agency! Crystal was so easy and nice to work with. The car was very clean and great on gas.
Everything worked like clockwork, no waiting lines to pickup or drop off cars, no gouging like the car rental companies...highly recommend galina as you host, will rent from her again.
Patrick was awesome! Super helpful and responsive throughout. And given the recent rental shortage in Kauai, Turo was a great option I had not utilized before. I’d argue that the Turo experience was better than through a rental agency.
This was so much more convenient than dealing with a car rental agency. Definetly would recommend this to others
Couldn’t have been any better experience! Katherine’s 4runner was clean and we picked it up just across from the baggage claim. I don’t think I will ever rent a car from a big brand rental agency again, Turo is awesome and so is Katherine😎
Gina made the rental process easy and locating and returning vehicle was also easy. Turo app was also easy to use during the entire trip. Highly recommend using Gina’s vehicle.
Amazing way to avoid the hassle of standard car rental. Car was clean and in good condition. Having the beach chairs and umbrella was perfect. Mahalo Anwar!
Matthew was very easy to work with and made the process so simple. So much more pleasant than dealing with the rental car companies. Mahalo Matthew!
Contessa was very friendly and great at communicating throughout the rental process.
Austin was great. The car is immaculate. Everything was so easy and well organized. This was a great alternative to the rental car companies.
Excellent car! Great shape, lots of room and easy to drive. Easy drop off and pickup service.
Corey was extremely friendly and easy going! He was really accommodating and made the whole rental process simple and easy to work with. He is reliable and communicated with me through ever step of the way!
Car is clean and contactless way of renting during Covid. RAV4 is older model but still reliable during our 4 days stay in Kauai. Also, the price is great instead of renting a new car from rental companies and it serves the purpose during our Shaka Guide audio tour. I used Uber to pick up and drop off the car , very close to the LIH airport.
Tamara was great. She dropped off the car for us even though it wasn’t included or required in our rental cost. Her communication was great and I’d definitely recommend renting from her. The sportage worked perfectly for our family of four.
First time using Turo, had never heard of it until a month before HI trip found out there were no rental cars on the island. Much like VRBO: ur a captive audience, have to pay elevated market prices, but beats walking and clearly the demand for cars WAY higher than supply. Will use again when in same crunch. My car provider TJ was super helpful right from the start and explained how Turo works and gave me the peace of mind to avoid stressing. I had heard some rental reservations in HI have fallen thru when they can’t produce cars and existing clients don’t return vehicle, so ur screwed. TJ was always very responsive, his car was 10 steps outside baggage and he was “on it” ready to remotely unlock my car upon me sending upload ID etc to Turo site. He couldn’t have been a better “host” /communicator. Car price was exceptionally steep but so we’re all other Turo options, again, market forces at play. I’d definitely “rent” from TJ again. Thx!
Silvin’s Toyota was perfect for our family of five for the week. He provided great communication and made the pickup and return process so easy. So much better than the hassles with traditional rental car companies. Very pleased overall!
Best experience ever. When all over rental companies at a kidney & a liver to rent a car- Turo to the rescue! More importantly, thank goodness for Nathaniel! Price was reasonable and the whole experience was overall great- easy which was most important. He provided great communication. And no lie- we really enjoyed his ride! I had a Kia Optima and I loved it but that was 6 years ago and the technology with the new Kia has changed for the better! Apple car play is a huge game changer! Thank you again Nathaniel!
I would not hesitate to rent from Nathan! He responds super quick and is professional. The Pilot was perfect for our vacation use. I would have trouble ever using a rental car agency again- I was a first time Turo user and Nathan made it really easy. The best is walking to your conveniently parked car and driving away immediately from the airport!
It was so great to have a car to explore the island; the jeep made it so much better! It was clean and tidy and had enough space for our luggage and beach gear during our trip. Ethan was communicative about pick up/drop off and also gave us tips about gas prices and car washing sites before needing to return the car. Highly recommend!
Jackson was a great host and very communicative throughout the entire rental process. I wouldn’t hesitate to book with him again!
Anastassia was absolutely wonderful - so reliable and easy to book with. She went above and beyond to make the experience easier than renting from even a rental agency, and was so nice. The car was like new and was perfect for our trip, and we couldn't have asked for a better experience for our first time booking with Turo.
Autumn was kind enough to rent her reasonably-priced 4Runner to us recently for a week on Kauai. As we left the terminal at Lihue Airport Autumn was waiting for us in her pristine 4Runner. After welcoming us to her beautiful island, Autumn had us on the road in no time which was helpful as we'd left O'Hare more than 12 hours prior. During our weeklong vacation Autumn's 4Runner more than satisfied my family's transportation needs. At the end of our vacation Autumn very generously offered to take us to Lihue Airport a couple of hours after we'd returned her 4Runner. We took Autumn up on her very generous offer and really enjoyed her company on the drive between her home and the airport. I couldn't think more highly of Autumn. She is a very great credit to TURO and I wouldn't hesitate to rent a vehicle from her in the future.
No issues at all with this rental. SUV was clean and ready to go just as promised. I would use again without any hesitation. Thanks.
Great car to drive around the island! The hybrid is added bonus. Casey was very accommodating and the process was sooo much easier than the rental car process. Don’t hesitate to use them for your trip🏝🌺
Pasty &Bruce were the best host ever. It was the first time we try Turo since we couldn’t find any car available from regular car rental companies in Kauai. Easy pick up at the hotel and drop off at the airport. The car was in excellent condition and perfect for getting my family around, enjoying the beautiful nature in Hawaii. This host is very friendly, flexible, and professional. I would highly recommend renting from Pasty if you visit Kauai Hawaii. ;D
Great Jeep! Nathan was great! He provided me with all the information I needed and the car was there as he said it would be. He was easy to communicate with and replied promptly. The Jeep itself was the perfect car for Kauai. The powered top puts it leagues above other cars. With a push of a button the entire top folds back and becomes a convertible. When it rains, which happens frequently on Kauai, I could just slow down or pull over, push a button, and the top is up in seconds. When we were there Kauai’s rains were frequent but short lived with gorgeous weather in between. We were able to quickly close the top when it was raining and quickly open it when it cleared. This was compared with the numerous other Jeep’s I saw on island which had to pull over to the side and fiddle with putting on their tops in the rain. This feature itself was definitely worth the premium in price over other cars. It also doesn’t sacrifice space like the other convertible cars out there if you have a family or beach gear. We saw a lot of other convertibles out there stuffed too uncomfortably full of people and stuff. This Jeep truly was perfect for our trip. If you do rent this Jeep, definitely pay for the extra cleaning. We tried our best to keep it clean but with the rain and sand/dirt combination it was nearly impossible to keep sand and dirt off of us and out of the car.
Jacob (and Melyssa) were amazing hosts! The car had everything we needed - multiple charging cables, Bluetooth connectivity for GPS, and some things I didn't anticipate like a wifi/hotspot! It was "delivered" on time, very clean, and comes with heavy duty rubber mats which make cleaning up upon returning the car much easier. Jacob and Melyssa were both fast with communication and with recommendations for local things. I had zero complaints with this car - and that was expected with it being a newer car! The car did amazing across the board, but especially with the AWD going to Polihale and also Mahaulepu beach. Technically you could get to both locations with a regular sedan but you're going extra slow and being extra careful. We still went slow and were careful of course, but there was definitely less to worry while driving! The price of this was actually cheaper than what we could've gotten through any regular airport rental for a sedan. I was happy to go through Turo to get an AWD and finally make it out to Polihae (this is now my 3rd time visiting Kauai and had been on my to-do list!). If anyone is wanting to car camp, this car with the back seats down can haul a good amount of gear and also comfortably fit 2! Jacob and Melyssa also had the option of a Yeti rental which I thought was really cool. If I was going to camp, I would've definitely utilized that! (we already had coolers from our Airbnb). Returning the car was also really easy. Melyssa gave me recommendations of where to take the car for the carwash and vacuuming. Honestly, this is the only "downside" of Turo compared to using a typical airport rental (having to worry about the added carwashing and vacuuming... or you can just pay others to do it for you). Jacob wasn't obsessive with checking the car on the return either which also made checkout a breeze (I have the experience where another host was more obsessive (like over 150 photos prior to releasing the car to me and being very upfront about their no sand policy), but I get it, it's making sure they're covered if there are any issues). All in all, I would not hesitate to rent from Jacob (and Melyssa( for any future Kauai trip!
I give Bryan a 6 star, one off the scale. Why? Because it was great. First time I used Turo. Some of my former students told me about it. I'm old school so a little wary of internet. Had to have my adopted grandchild help me download my photo so Bryan could meet me at the airport. I usually click on the add or paper clip and download my scanned document/picture. It didn't work. She came home and downloaded picture from my phone to the computer and did it. I was getting worried I would not get the car in time. My wife uses a wheelchair so we wanted a larger car. My granddaughter scolded me because she said its to high for grama to get in, but we needed a bigger car and trunk. Finally loaded reservation and Bryan got back to me right away with phone number and email. We set up trip and he met us at Lihue airport with the car right at baggage claim. Car was great, like new. Next morning we checked all fluids of engine when it was cold and all good. Bryan had a three ring folder of all the places to see with comments and a travel book about Kauai. Car and trip great. To surprise Bryan we found a car wash in Kapaa and a vacuum cleaner at a gas station,. He was surprised. If you don't rent from Bryan as we say in Hawaii "U lose money" meaning you MISS OUT! Mahalo Bryan. You da man!
Great experience! Very easy to receive and return vehicle. Much better experience and better cost than big box rental companies. Will definitely use every time I am in Kauai. Thank you, Anwar!
Winny was a great person to rent from! We were looking for a care in Kauai last minute (which is close to necessity) and booked with her last minute. We met for both pick up and drop off at the airport which was incredibly convenient and also got to skip the long lines at car rental companies!
My wife and I travel inter-island very often but this was our first time using Turo. Brandon was great! The car was easy to find and his instructions were very easy to follow. He messaged me the day before about the trip coming up and parked the car in the lot with plenty of time before our flight was scheduled to land. The overall experience was much better than catching the bus to the rental counter like we usually do. I would use Turo and Brandon’s CR-V again. Thanks again, Brandon!
Could not have been easier. The car was waiting for us when we came out of the airport. After a long flight it was so nice not to have to deal with a rental car counter. The pilot was clean and spacious.
The jeep was really fun to drive around the Island. The vehicle is in very good condition & worked perfectly! Tosh was very easy to work with and always responded immediately to any questions. Pick up and drop off was incredibly easy. I could see the vehicle from baggage claim before my bags arrived. No hassles waiting in line at a rental car counter. I would highly recommend renting this jeep and will do so on future visits to Kauai.
Nathaniel was an excellent host. He provided numerous services to make our trip most enjoyable. His informational packet on the the four regions of Kauai with recommended restaurants and activities was very helpful. Nathaniel responses to questions and concerns were very prompt and he was willing to work with us to address our concerns. We highly recommend Nathaniel’s vehicles for rental. His prices were also excellent. Mahalo, Nathaniel!
Amber had great attentive customer service, great info, and a superb vehicle. Also stayed very flexible! We had to extend our rental and she allowed us up to the last possible minute for us to use. So thankful! Best price too
Anwar left very clear instructions and even upgraded us to a larger vehicle. He was very responsive and made our trip super easy by getting to skip the rental car agency. We will definitely try to book with Anwar again when we return!
The Phillips Ohana were amazing from beginning to end. Great communication and flexibility. The car was in great condition and worked perfectly. Thank you for making the rental process so easy! I highly recommend Turo and renting from the Phillips Ohana.
We LOVED this Jeep! Perfect for cruising the island and the mountainous terrain. Working with Anwar was a pleasure. Good communication and smooth rental process. Mahalo!
Amazing experience! This was our first Turo and I think we’ve been spoiled! Crystal was very helpful and responsive when we had questions during our rental. The process of picking up and returning the vehicle was very easy and straightforward. The vehicle itself was well kept and clean. It was the perfect car for all the driving we did on the island. Would highly recommend her to others. Next time we are back on the island, we hope we can use her services again in the future! Thank you, Crystal for helping us have an unforgettable experience on this trip!
Kept his commitment through out this crazy COVID time and crazy rental car prices. Pick-up and drop were smooth. Very responsive! Thank you for making our transportation care free!
Y’all!! If you need a car in Kauai, Marie is the person you want to book with. She’s the most honest, hospitable person we’ve met (virtually). When everyone on the island was price gouging for rental cars, she was super kind and informative. She made check in super easy and clear. The car was clean and spacious. Overall, really great experience and I’d book with her again.
Anwar made the car rental process a breeze. The vehicle was well maintained and easy to access upon arrival in Kauai. Communication was excellent as well. Will definitely rent again.
Anwar made renting from him super easy. The jeep we rented was great, less expensive than rental car companies, and easier to pick up and drop off. Thanks Anwar!
Joshua messaged me in advance of my arrival in Lihue and had the car ready with time to spare. I didn't end up using the car, so I can't commenton its condition (I made this one-day Turo reservation as a backup plan because of the crazy rental car situation in Hawaii right now). But, based on the other stuff, I would happily rent from him again.
Katrina was awesome! Our family enjoyed the Toyota Highlander. It was clean, a/c work perfect and runs good. Of course car rental is extremely high and cost us for our 12 day rental as much as our mortgage but we were so thankful to get around the entire island during our vacation. We highly recommend.
Great new car. Big enough for our family of 4 with luggage for a week. Easy to park. Responsive owner. If only the traffic had been as smooth and easy as the car rental. Will consider Turo again as a result of this trip.
Nathanial was great with this rental including accommodating with our unique travel arrangements with my family. Our first trip to Kauai was great. Thanks
Much Mahalos to Melvin for letting us use your vehicle. Our family had a great experience cruising around Kauai in the Nissan Pathfinder. The vehicle was clean and operated perfectly. The Hawaiian Islands sticker on the rear window was a nice touch. Made it looks like a local suv, not a rental vehicle.
This was my first experience with Turo and I will never rent a car another way again. It was fantastic! After standing in the Hertz line for an hour and a half outside in the heat at the Kauai airport, I was denied my reservation because I did not have the card I booked the reservation with. I took a taxi to my condo and once there, began researching rental cars. Due to Covid, many of the rental cars were sent to the mainland when the island shut down and car rentals are a nightmare. Luckily, I found Melyssa and Jacob through Turo. They delivered the car right to our condo! It was a brand new Ford Edge. It drove well and was very comfortable. I highly recommend renting this small SUV from Jacob and Melyssa!!!
We had an amazing experience. First of all, the car itself is awesome! It’s brand new and has plenty of cool features. Apple CarPlay in particular was great for using google maps to navigate Kauai. The car provides a really smooth ride thats perfect whether you’re exploring local eateries or going on long scenic drives along Kauai’s highways. As for Brad himself, he is a very helpful and gracious host. He is easy to contact before and during the trip if you have any clarification questions regarding the vehicle. He also really goes out of his way to make the pickup and drop-off process easy for guests. The vehicle was ready for us at Lihue airport, and pickup was easy, quick, and stress-free! It was nice having such an easy and reliable pickup after a long flight. With rental cars in Kauai being nearly impossible to come by at the moment, I was extremely grateful to have a host like Brad provide such a great car and such a convenient, stress-free pickup process. This car made our Kauai vacation one to remember. So if you’re visiting Kauai and looking for a car on Turo, Brad is your best bet to ensure a great vacation. Great experience, great car, and great guy! 10/10!
Lynn was such a joy to work with! She was incredibly accommodating and so kind with each request. At times, I thought it must be some type of scam because she was so so so nice. Car was in perfect condition. Our trip was a success because of Lynn and her kindness!
This Honda CRV is the perfect vehicle for seeing the island. Compact but roomy, we carried four older adults very comfortably to places of interest. And Heather is a consummate host - flexible in every way. She made an extensive effort to make sure that we were satisfied - especially upon pick up and delivery. When I communicated with her, her first words were always “what would work best for you?“ The vehicle is essentially brand new – I left it with about 3000 miles on the odometer. Heather included beach towels in a beach bag and wipes for all services. We could not be more pleased with our experience. To those of you wondering if you can enjoy Kauai without a car (as I did) I’ll tell you this: you can’t. It made the trip much more fulfilling and enjoyable. And the conveniences of renting a TURO car from Heather were worth the extra cost over a rental - assuming you can even find one.
Cynthia was amazing in every way! She was able to accommodate a different pickup/drop off location. She messaged back immediately when I had questions. Her price, comparatively speaking, was better than most and the car was in great condition and was so fun to ride around the island in.
We had an amazing time in Kauai and TJ was very helpful and prompt in responses. Months before our trip, I was stressed out when I found out there were no rental cars available through the “normal” rental car avenues like Hertz, Avis, Thriffty, etc. I decided to give Turo a try. Glad I did. It was a very easy process and a good first impression. Will definitely be using the service again and when I come back to Kauai, I will definitely rent from TJ again.
Amelia was very easy to deal with and all went smoothly. The windshield wipers worked perfectly, they must have been replaced since the last review that mentioned them. Basic car but great for the price.
This was our first experience with Turo and it was so easy! Josh’s car was east to find at LIH parking and was spotless! It was much easier than the rental car process.
