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.
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.
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
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!
Best car rental we’ve ever had! Tamara goes out of the way to make the trip/experience perfect!!! We highly recommend Tamara and her car… our overall experience far exceeded all expectations!
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.
A clean car, customer focused and accommodating owner on a beautiful island. This is best combination one would look for in a vacation. A complete stress free rental experience.
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!
Cy was awesome to work with!! The Tahoe was perfect for our family and we loved the extra details like custom fit rubber mats throughout the whole vehicle and quick dry seat covers! This made me feel less stressed if the kids still had sand on their feet or wet bottoms. We needed a couple of extra hours added and Cy was quick to respond and gave us the ok! This rental made our trip a success!! Our 2 rentals vehicles were canceled at the last minute and so glad I we found this app and Cy!!
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!
Kanai’s Subaru was perfect for our family of 5 ( 3 adult children!) and our gear. Great trip and Kanai was awesome. Very responsive. I don’t think I can rent another big box rental car agin!! Seamless process from start to finish. Mahalo Kanai and Turo!
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.
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.
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.
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.
This Kia sportage is just what you need on your Kauai vacation. angie was great to work with , very accommodating . Best part was they easy pick up and drop off from the airport! Car was clean , efficient on gas. would absolutely rent again.
The Jeep was beautiful and the owner made the whole experience fabulous! Very easy to communicate with and very helpful. This would be my first rental vehicle to look for on any return trip!!
Car was extra clean and well sanitized. We had a family of four and we all fit comfortably. Host was very responsive and friendly. We loved the rental!
Dia is the best! She was very communicative, reliable and kind. In addition to having a perfectly clean, new car (with bluetooth audio, in-car calling features) she also had amazing recommendations for the island. She pointed us to wonderful beaches and restaurants that enhanced our trip! She was amazing to work with and I truly couldn't recommend her more! Will be renting from her when we return!
Due to rental car shortage in Kauai, this was my first with Turo. But the experience was nothing short of exceptional. Brian was great to work with. His commuication was prompt and accessible throughout the entire trip. Contactless Pickup/Return at airport (with no additional fee) was very convenient. The car was clean, roomy, and performed exceptionally well, Brian was nice to let me return the car couple of hours late due to my departed flight changed. I tried to keep the car as clean as I possibly could and he was reasonable about it. I had a great time around the island thanked to Brian and his super nice and reliable car.
Thanks to Susie for renting her Jeep for our family trip to Kauai. We had a chance to explore so much of the beautiful island! Great experience!
Lauren’s 4Runner was perfect. No issues at all. Very clean and well maintained. The truck is a perfect vehicle for Kauai. We comfortably fit five people and five golf bags during our trip. Lauren was VERY helpful and responsive throughout the trip. She explained everything and answered all questions I had. It was my first time renting through Turo and I was honestly a little hesitant, but it was an awesome experience. Easier than renting through a traditional rental company. I definitely will look to rent Lauren’s 4Runner next time I visit Kauai,
Melvin is top class! Great communication, car ran without problem, ultra convenient rental for your vacation. The Jeep was great for exploring all Kauai has to offer - hope to be back soon!
Lj provided a fantastic service when renting his car in Kauai. Since the booking process, then during check-in and finally at the check-out, I was very happy with the service provided. The car was great, and the family enjoyed the rides we did across the island. I fully recommend Lj for his car rental service.
The Best Turo Experience Yet! Danielle is an amazing host with tons of Kauai information that I needed to be comfortable like entry at the airport via covid protocol. When I come back to Kauai, she will be my go-to rental, if available. She goes beyond the call of a host and makes you feel like friend. And the car is brand spankin' new, fresh tires, very reliable.
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
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.
This was our first time using Turo and we had a GREAT experience working with Tien and Derek. They really went above-and-beyond to make our vacation car rental easy and enjoyable. Great communication, Friendly smiles, and Curbside pick-up at the airport....what's better than that?! The car was spotless and worked great, too! :) Mahalo, Tien and Derek!
If you’re reading these reviews to make your final decision then look no further because this is your sign to just rent it! Booking with Lj was great! He was quick to respond and was flexible with us, even offering tips and places to explore! This was our first time using Turo and at first we were nervous but Lj was great and made us comfortable through the whole process. The car was reliable, clean, easy to pick up/drop off, and the nicest rental we’ve had on vacation. We will definitely book through him again when we come back!
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!
Yaeme was friendly and very helpful. The service she provided was better than Alamo. Pick up was easy and right outside the airport. Drop off was even better. The next day I picked up my long term rental and I asked Yaeme if she could meet me there for the drop off. She said 'absolutely'! The car was fabulous. Very clean and in great shape. I highly recommend them on Turo
From the time of booking to car pickup to return, my experience was seamless. The process was way easier than any rental experience. The vehicle is immaculate and perhaps the best looking vehicle on the island.
We had a wonderful experience renting Matthew’s clean, zippy, safe Subaru Forester for the week. Matthew was so kind and parked it at the airport for us to pick up when we arrived and we were thrilled and surprised at how easy it was to find. We returned it back to the airport in the same lot that we found it, which truly made this whole experience hassle free! We are a family of five and we had plenty of room! Thank you, Matthew, for the wonderful car, amazing service and for making our trip to Kauai that much more enjoyable!! Mahalo!
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🏝🌺
Awesome car rental! Super clean. Brand new. Easy pickup and drop off. We had extra goodies in the back of the car like umbrellas, chairs and fin which made the whole trip more enjoyable. Highly recommend!
This car is a compact SUV like the size of a Subaru Crosstrek. It does have a large trunk and Kimberlee kindly includes very long straps for the roof rack- we were able to strap 2 SUPs and 2 surfboards to the rack. She also includes a soft cooler which is great for taking drinks and snacks to the beach. The hybrid is perfect for the island as well- we used hardly nay gas. Great, clean rental.
I could start my trip smoothly right after arriving at Lihue airport. The car was nice and clean, and the owner prepared a laminated paper that showed the recommended restaurants. Such a nice hospitality!
This was a great vehicle for our family of six to explore Kauai comfortably. The vehicle was very clean and well maintained. Tricia was a pleasure to deal with and we will definitely try renting with her again on our next visit.
The car was in immaculate condition. The pickup and dropoff was efficient and ideal. Was very happy with the entire process. The car is basically brand new and drove as if I just got it off the dealer lot. Steve & Christine responded promptly and made my first Turo rental a true pleasure.
Rented Casie’s Hyundai Santa Fe for a 6 day vacation with my girlfriend. The car was very clean and spacious. She also equipped the car with a bag to hold any wet items, an umbrella and sanitary items. Casie kept up on our flight information and met us at the airport as soon as we landed to start us on our trip on the island. Casie responded very quickly to our messages and gave us tips and suggestions on places to visit while on the island. Would recommend anyone to rent Casie’s vehicle, as we definitely would do it again. Thank you Casie!
Great car, and China was flexible and communicated well. I hope on our next trip the rental car market is more available and affordable, but I would not hesitate to rent from China again.
The rental worked out great! Was as advertised and made a great family car for us to see the island with. Would highly recommend this car. Megan was great to work with.
Casie's car was perfect for exploring Kauai! Pick up and drop off was incredibly convenient and close to the airport. Casie was so sweet and thoughtful. Her car was very clean and stocked with cleansing wipes, extra masks, and rubbish bags. She even has an umbrella and dry bag for your wet clothes/towels! Do not hesitate to book Casie's car for your Kauai trip! We couldn't have asked for a better and smoother experience; it was WAY better than renting a car from a rental company.
I was very nervous about renting a car this way but is was very easy because of our host. Alaric went above and beyond to make sure we understood the process, how to get our car from the airport and turn it back in. I would recommend renting a car from Alaric to my family and friends. Thank you so much for making sure we had a car for our family vacation.
Very responsive and respectful owner. He provided a huge Kauai guide and included his own binder with thorough guidance of the island. The vehicle was clean and well maintained. We were grateful to get the SUV since that is what we drive at home and limited availability of rentals. Also, the 4Runner has great viewing from the windows for busy traffic and narrow lanes. The owner really went out of his way to ensure we had a great time in Kauai. Absolutely recommend.
This was the best rental experience I could have asked for. The vehicle was ready when we arrived. The Jeep was also had a full tank of gas and was clean. Drop off was also very easy.
Great rental experience with Patsy and Bruce. Very responsive right from the beginning. They texted us when our plane landed to coordinate where we’ll meet. Bruce pulled up to our terminal shortly after we picked up our bags. Quick and easy hand off. Car was clean and ran great the whole 7-day trip. Solid utility vehicle for the island. Even has a roof rack if you need it. Easy drop off as well. Highly recommend.
Renting from Brandon was one of the best decisions we made on our trip to Kauai. His Forerunner is brand new and well-appointed for touring the island. Pick up and return were easy, and Brandon provides clear, easy-to-follow instructions. This was a five-star experience!
Super friendly people and the car was just perfect. We only had two of us and it was great. The size was good to park at some of those off the beaten trail beaches. If I every come back I will be look for zephyr for my next rental.
Emily and her vehicle were great. The Santa Fe was an ideal car to travel the island. Great gas mileage for a SUV. Emily was easy to work with and responded to any inquiries promptly. 100% recommend. 5 of 5 stars!
Hilary and the 4Runner are great! Our flight to HI was delayed and the airport rental car company would not hold our rental car for us. We ended up looking here on Turo and we are so glad we did. Hilary was super accommodating when we wanted to alter our pick-up/drop-off times, she welcomed us with aloha gifts, provided bug spray and hand sanitizer, and kept in contact throughout our stay as needed. The car was extremely clean and spacious- it fit everything we needed and more. The plastic floor mats make it really easy to clean up before returning to Hilary. The 4Runner is also fun to drive in general :) can't recommend this car enough!
I feel lucky to find this brand new 2021 Honda CRV hybrid with less than 2k mile on the clock. It’s just the perfect car to tour around Kauai. Averaging 36mpg during our whole trip was icing on the cake. Our host A. Casey is such a cool dude, easy to communicate and very attentive. I highly recommend A. Casey if you are looking to rent a car in Kauai.
Though we have had limited experience with Turo - I can honestly say that it’s going to be hard for anyone to beat Patsy and Bruce as hosts! The communication, service and pure aloha were not only fantastic but made us feel welcomed and appreciated. Don’t be fooled by the size of the car either - we had a family of four, three large suitcases and carryons and it all fit perfectly fine in the back of this fantastic car. In fact, I couldn’t recommend a better ride for Kauai. The car is new, immaculate and uses hardly any gas, with enough power to get you up to Waimea canyon and back and plenty of clearance to get down the occasional dirt road. It was a perfect experience for us and we will definitely rent this car again when we return! Mahalo!!
The car was the perfect size for my family of four and for lugging around all the beach chairs, cooler, umbrellas, snorkel gear, and tent. Oh and the A/C worked perfectly. Ken was very prompt in responding and delivering the vehicle. I will definitely be reserving his vehicle for my next trip to Kauai. Thank you Ken
Nice car, comfortable and great ac. Mike was great to work with. Very smooth rental in all aspects.
Great experience, very easy and convenient. Great alternative to renting through a rental car company
Joseph was great to rent from. He was easy to communicate with, flexible when I requested to change the time, and understanding when I worried about the sand my 3 kids brought into the car. The car was clean and great for touring around the island. I would definitely recommend Joseph and this car to anyone needing space to accommodate a family + beach equipment!
