Our rental experience was great. We were concerned when we realized that traditional rental companies had no cars to rent for our trip needs. However, Turo was a great experience in that Anwar made the exchange so easy. The car was also comfortable and easy to drive. So our family was able to travel Kauai thoroughly and comfortably for our week long vacation. The only drawback was the expense of renting a car compared to a pre-Covid world. Everything said and done —it was great. I’m already recommending Tiro to friends.

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!

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.

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!

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.

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!

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!

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!

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 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 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!

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!

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.

But, based on the other stuff, I would happily rent from him again.

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!
