Volodymyr was very helpful, professional and punctual. Highly recommend! Pickup was automated because the Ford Edge has a lockpad. He dropped the car in public parking and even left some cash for the parking fee. Very nice touch. The car ran great, had strong air conditioning and zero problems. Our rental experience with Volodymyr was much better than the typical experience with major car rental companies. Drop off was quick and easy. We met him in the parking lot and didn't have to wait. He was very punctual again. Friendly and professional. Will definitely do again next time we are on the big island.
As advertised. Super clean. Mechanically sound with absolutely no issues over our 9 day trip that ranged all over the island. Adrianna was super responsive and accommodating! Beach gear rental was a bonus and super convenient with everything we needed packed into the car from the start.
Very reliable car and easy to drive. Mark was super responsive and was able to communicate anything to him throughout the trips. Though you don't see the interior photos in the listing, the interior is actually very comfortable and it has everything you need for roadtrip. Great for family and couples who are looking to travel around the island.
David is simply fantastic!!! Communication is excellent and smooth, and the car was absolutely great. I could not have asked for any better service and very highly recommend David!
This was my first experience using Turo and it was definitely a positive one! Pick-up and drop-off went smoothly. The car felt like new and there were no issues. I appreciated the comfy seat covers! Trish's car and Turo get an A+!
The pick up and return from/to the airport was very seamless and easy. We had a slight issue with a tire air pressure message that came up. I reached out to the host and was contacted immediately. Great response time and customer service. The issue was easily rectified. I would definitely rent from Kea Adventures again.
Had a great time in Al and Chris’s Bronco. They were very hospitable and pickup/drop off was a breeze. The car was in great condition and a joy to drive around the island.
This trip was my first rental through Turo and it could not have been a better experience. From the super convenient delivery to the accomodating drop-off, the whole rental was as easy as could be.
Great SUV to explore Big Island. Drives in excellent condition/ maintenance. All the things for convenience were included incl. clean and tidy, pack of clean wipes, full windshield cleaner fluid, good A/C, and bluetooth to listen to smart phone playlists. There is plenty of space to for beach and bike gear. Easy on-time pickup and drop off in Kailua Kona. Highly recommend Nia and her Ford Explorer for a wonderful trip!
We needed a very last minute vehicle since the first Turo didn’t work out and John was able to get the car to us with only a few hrs notice! The explorer was solid and dependable and very spacious and since we didn’t need the third row seating, we had a lot of trunk space to use for all our paraphernalia! Thank you John and if any of my friends are headed to Kona, I will highly recommend this vehicle!
Awesome car and very easy to work with for pick up and drop off. Every where we went on the island, people wanted to talk about this Bronco!
Turo is the only way to rent a car. Forget the big car rental agencies. This way will change renting a car as we know it!
This vehicle was great (roomy and reliable) and the owners were awesome (personable and professional)! We would definitely enjoy this vehicle again on our next trip, and recommend the owners to prospective clients.
Great experience! The car was nice and clean, and was perfect for our trip w/ a family a 5. Paul and Nicolette were great- very helpful! We would definitely rent again if we came back this way and would recommend to anyone who needs an suv rental...thanks!!!
First time using Turo and we could not have had a better experience. Al and his wife were wonderful host. We had a departure change last minute and they adjusted immediately to accommodate our change. Pickup and drop off were so much easier than the “normal” rental car experience and that added to our vacation. If we are fortunate enough to get back to the Big Island, we’ll definitely rent from Al again. Bronco was great and everything was as promised!
Decided last minute to use up my reservations from pre pandemic even when the danger of traveling is higher than normal. Luckily Allison and her new 2021 Ford Bronco saved the day! From clear, precise explanations to top notch communication, Allison kept consistent all the way to drop off. Loved the ride because it not only turned heads but it was good turning radius, nice and tight road hugging and very, very dependable in all scenarios with pot holes and falling rocks on the road easily tackling first grade 4x4 pavements which Big Isle is known for. All I can say is this is a good deal and excellent experience I will definitely recommend to all would be travelers to the Island of Hawaii...
Our first experience with Turo and Giuseppi made it a great one! The car was exactly what we needed to explore the island and have a blast! Great vehicle for Hawaii. Thank you Giuseppi for walking us through the rental experience and making it easy for us. Highly recommend! 5 stars all the way!
Better than a car rental especially during these crazy times. It was my first time using Turoand Mark made it so easy. He was really responsive to all my questions.
Loved the space of the car, everything worked. Was a great car for the value. Communication was really good.
Thank You Gabe❤️ The car was excellent. Everyone was comfortable. We had enough room for our stuff on our daily adventures. Thank you for suggesting the Green Sand Beach and South Point. We had a blast with the off roading with the locals. Thank you for your excellent service. Until next time🙏🏻❤️
Car was perfect for our vacation and Dave was an excellent and very communicative host with great recommendations! Pick up and drop off were super smooth. Thanks for a great experience!
Would recommend 5/5, car was clean and communication was easy. Drop off/pick up was a breeze. Mark even went out of his way to drop off the vehicle the night before since the start time was in the early AM hours.
Great car and good gas mileage. Shaheer is super responsive and easygoing. Great car to explore the big island!
First time using Turo and had a great experience with Shaheer. He met us at the airport with the the car and gave us the keys and off we went on our vacation. I would highly recommend using him in the future !
Great car, we had no issues and Mark was the perfect host. This is a great car for the island as well. The right balance of functionality, comfort, and versatility. It was great for the road trips and the backup cam made parking at the local stops easy.
Al was an excellent host! Always quick with a response to my questions, and fantastic with communication in general. Pick-up/drop-off was a cinch, and Al was prompt to both meet-ups. The car was immaculate and as described, with all the bells and whistles you could need for a journey around the big island! Our group of four adults had several carry-on sized bags, plus four 40-50lb suitcases between us. Although a snug fit, we all had just enough room for a comfortable ride. Side note: This vehicle is one of the only 2021 Bronco’s on the island, so be prepared for a lot of envious looks from both tourists and locals!
Adrianna is a super host; she really goes the extra mile for you; you receive the car in an excellent, clean condition and making an appointment is super easy, Excellent car to explore Big Island and you do blend in with the locals. Highly recommend!
Adrianna was excellent! She met us where we needed her to and was always prompt and professional. The car is in great shape!
The car was great for our trip on the big island! Mark was very helpful as well. Would definitely use Mark's vehicle again!
Amazing host!! Kea made it so easy and the car was perfect for our needs!!! I am a first time user and the process was simple and cost effective. Would definitely recommend!!
Gabriel is an amazing host and his Expedition worked perfect for my family! Definitely hit him up for your car rental needs!!
Vastly is GREAT! Although we had issues with the original SUV, Vasyl exchanged our car, without inconveniencing us at all, gave us a partial refund and was totally apologetic. He is THE nicest man. We will definitely use him again when we are back on the Big Island!
Kelly had great communication and did everything possible to ensure a great experience renting a car. He was very responsive and friendly. Thanks Kelly!
We loved it!!! This was the best car to literally drive around the whole island. No matter where we went or what we did it handled great. There was enough room in the truck for our large checked suitcase, 2 carry on backpacks, 1 wheeled carry on and 1 duffel bag. We still had some room left over. The car was super comfy and well kept.
This is the type of vehicle and experience that makes Turo so great. The owners are super nice and reasonable.
Vasyl was easy to communicate with, reliable and friendly. The car was as described. It was nice to have him meet us to get us the car and easy to drop off. The car is a little older, but it did the job. The front right headlight went out occasionally, when tapped on, it lit back up. We had a large party, so it was a size car that we needed and couldn’t get thru rental agencies. Great to skip those lines and upsells! I would recommend him and would use him again!
I cannot praise Al and his Bronco enough!! The bee Bronco was spectacular to use around the big island and I’m so grateful he allowed us to use it! Easy to go to the summit and beaches. The terrain ain’t go nothing on the Bronco!! Al is the perfect owner to work with. Thank you thank you!! I’d definitely use Al’s vehicle again!
Our trip started off a little rocky, but Lucia went above and beyond for us and made sure we had a great time on the Island. Thank you again Lucia for everything you did. We are great full and will keep you in mind for any further car rentals.
Great car, easy check in and check out. Fast communication. Would rent from Shaheer again!
Nia was a perfect host with perfect amount of communication, essentially always there when i had a "locals only" question and she always responded extremely timely and kept up until all questions were answered. She loves and cares her Island, and for the guests renting her SUV. I couldn't offer any advice to improve, nor should I for the perfect host Nia was, a true gem 💎 on the Big Island! Her SUV never let us down and the optional 3rd row flipped down or up...depending on our activities for the day. Thank you Nia for making our Hawaiian Christmas the dream vacation we looked forward to in a very challenging year! Mahalo, Mahalo, Mahalo!!!
Gabriel had the Ford Expedition at delivery as promised and the vehicle was just what we needed for a family of 8. Clean, ran great and plenty of room, Not a new vehicle but in great condition and everything worked well. Met us at the airport in Kona for an easy return. He answered all questions both pre and during trip no matter the hour within seconds or minutes. (I don’t think he sleeps!) Customer service was superior. Provided island information and a photographer referral (David Krystal) who captured our family photos. For a small extra charge provided 2 beach chairs, 6 beach towels, a cooler and even tie downs for the roof carrier if needed. I may have driven him crazy with questions but he’s focused on customer satisfaction - a great experience for our family.
Laurel kept the entire process simple. Picked up and returned at the airport. Big SUV with plenty of room for my family and my wife's excessive packing lol. Will definitely rent from Laurel again.
John was on top of all the details we needed to make the rental a good experience for us. Car performed very well. Very clean.
Scott was great tom work with, so he gets 5 stars as well! The car was clean and ready to go. Beautiful SUV.
Chandee and her Ford Expedtion was superb. Super Clean Car. Keep up the good work. Hope to deal with you again when we come back. Mahalo Chandee.
