I was skeptical at first renting from someone, however it made the rental process less time consuming then renting from car rentals. Owner was on time the car was ready to go, across the street parking garage. Saved us a lot of time specially when your flight lands late. Definitely will do this again 👍👌

Great car! Great experience! We found Turo when looking to rent a car for 2 weeks on Kauai .. we rented this almost new, super nice Rav 4 from Anya. She was super nice, met us as planned, no waiting in line, no extra car rental agency fees. The car was exactly as promised and the process was smooth, simple, and so nice. We would rent from Anya again, and will rent from Turo again. Hertz and the rest of the rental companies are going to need to step up their game!

This is an excellent vehicle at a price impossible to find with car rental companies even for a much lesser car. What’s even better is Quinn made it really easy for me to get the car in the airport, through a process much faster than a regular car renting process with a regular company.. .The same is true when returning the car. This made our Kauai vacation that much easier and smoother. I would recommend the car and Quinn to anyone. You will be very happy to rent this car

TJ was exceptionally responsive and the car was as shown. Performed beautifully across the island, especially in downpours. Just an FYI to clarify with owners their expectations of interior condition upon return. We are an active family, and enjoyed the island as fully as possible despite the rain, and regret not changing shoes and some clothing before getting in the car. Definitely a new behavior to adapt to that’s a departure from renting from rental car companies.

Great vehicle with extra safety features. It also does very well on gas which is great with the higher gas prices of the island. Extra clean on the inside and two charging ports for your phones. Would definitely recommend, with unlimited miles. I compared many prices for our honeymoon and this vehicle was the best price. Also Nick is very friendly and great with communication!

Zephyr was easy to communicate with, pick up and drop off was a breeze. I have never rented with Turo before (always through the usual rental car companies) and it was super easy - better than renting through Avis, Alamo, etc. I rented a better car, comparable pricing, no long rental lines to wait in and no hidden costs. The car was amazing, easy to drive, super clean and a fun way to explore Kauia for the first time!!! Thank you! Until next time…

This was my first time using Turo and I wasn’t sure what to expect. I booked Lauren’s Jeep super last minute because there weren’t any available at the traditional rental companies. They had some SUVs but you never know what you are going to end up with. Not only was I able to choose a Jeep, but Lauren’s Wrangler is a Rubicon! When I booked, Lauren messaged me directions right away and had the Jeep waiting for me when I landed. It was parked right across the street from the baggage claim. In Lihue I always rent from Avis or Enterprise and this really was so much easier. It saved me at least 20-30 minutes compared to how long it usually takes me to walk over and wait to catch the rental car shuttle. With the current ongoing situation with COVID-19 the interior being clean is paramount and Lauren’s Jeep was spotless. It was the perfect vehicle for my trip. Lauren made my first experience with Turo go super smooth. Her communication and directions were perfect. I come to Kauai often for work, and to visit family and I can’t see myself renting from a traditional company again. This experience was just so much easier and better. I needed a nice bouquet of flowers and she was able to recommend an amazing new little shop, The Pua Bar, at Kilohana in Lihue. (The girls there were also super helpful and made a beautiful bouquet and I was able to get a fresh locally made lei!) I highly recommend Lauren, the Jeep was awesome, and getting the local attention, touch and insight is something you can’t get from the traditional companies. 5 Stars!

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.

Vehicle was very clean and well maintained, perfect size for family of 4 plus all of our luggage (5 suitcases & 1 duffel type bag). We drove it back and forth from princeville to poipu multiple times over course of a week and only used 3/4 tank. Nathaniel was accessible and responded promptly to questions during booking process, even helped upload required photos when I was struggling with the Turo app. Easy pick up & drop off directly across from baggage claim. Was my first time using Turo and was a little nervous about it not because ng from a regular car rental company, but it really worked out great.

Nathaniel’s Kia Soul was perfect for our trip on Kauai! It was easy to drive, overall spacious and perfect at getting anywhere we needed to go around the island!! Nathaniel was great to work with and everything about our experience was fantastic! The car was easy to pick up, communication was spot on and it was clean and very professional. He even included a “things to do” information packet as well as a box of Hawaiian cookies! I don’t think we will ever use rental car companies again!! I highly recommend Turo and renting from Nathaniel! Thank you for a great experience!

We couldn’t have asked for a more perfect car rental experience. Stacie’s car was clean, roomy, and fun to drive. Pick up and drop off at the airport was so much easier than standing in line at a rental counter. Robert and Stacie were super friendly and very quick to respond. Don’t hesitate to book their car! You won’t regret it.

It was extremely easy of a pick up from the airport as well as the drop off. Car was great and it was nice to be able to take the top off with such ease. Only thing is the clean up needed before return takes some time, as well as the “under 26” up charge, as the big rental companies will clean and only charge under 25. Overall was extremely happy!

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!

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.

Super easy pick up at Lihue airport. Very clean. We had. no issues at all. Keep in mind this is not a new rental car from a major company. We chose Turo due to the fact major rental companies are renting cars out that they don’t have. Many people have been stranded at the airport and their hotels due to lack of rentals. Alli was very reliable and very easy. We will choose local again through Turo.

The rental process couldn’t be easier. The car was waiting for us in the parking lot directly across the street from baggage claim. No shuttles. No lines. No stress. Chanel left us a welcome bag with some snacks, gum and hand sanitizer….. very nice. Our group was my husband and me, as well as our three boys who range in height from 6’1” to 6’4”. With the split third row, there was enough room for the boys and our gear. The car ran without a problem. Another perk of renting this car is it has (for now) an out of state plate making it instantly recognizable amongst the rainbow plates. We will be back in Kauai in March and look forward to renting again.

Nathaniel made the whole rental process smooth and seamless. He not only met every expectation you’d expect from a rental provider, but he also made himself available as a trip resource providing good Kauai travel tips. The 4 Runner we rented was also super spacious, in great shape, and surprisingly very fuel efficient. Plus if you don’t know…4 runners are the best way to make you blend in with the locals while behind the wheel and capitalize on some Aloha while in traffic. 🤙🏼

Great little car for zipping around the island. Very clean, good communication from the owner and nice to have it at the airport. It did cost us 15 dollars to pick it up since it was left in the lot 5+ hours before the pick up time, which was a bit of a bummer, but cheaper than an Uber to get it from elsewhere I guess. Also, the back hatch swings out like a regular door and the handle is in the taillight (had to Google it as I've never driven that model before and could NOT find it).

Brianna is such a wonderful host! She is just super in every way! ❤️ Communication is superior! I was never responsive before, during, and after our trip. I had plenty to deal with lol!, however, I appreciate how she continuously contacts me (even if I do not respond! lol! sorry ✌️) and made sure I had everything working well! Also recommended where to go and what to do. After trip, she still went out of her way to send well wishes! Could not ask for any better host! She is just too perfect! 😍 Pick up of the car at the airport was a breeze! altho I got lost finding the vehicle, it was my fault, i did not read the instructions properly! 😂 The vehicle itself is pristine! Super clean and fresh smelling! It was remarkable! I love all the technology in the SUV, I am techy so the joy I had was priceless! GPS, multiple adapter sockets, USB, Aux, bluetooth! OMG! beautiful! the sun shade for the passengers was just fabulous! She also included a windshield shade, which was perfect when the sun was high! We were able to cool the SUV quick bcos of the sun shades! Also, we were able to use the heated functions of the SUV when we got caught in the rain! The SUV has cooling and heated seats, and heated steering wheels. Oh yes the sunroof was just amazing! we were able to open it while in line for testing! All in, everything in the rental was just immaculate! One thing’s for sure! I will rent from Brianna again when in Kauai! ❤️❤️❤️
