Joseph’s instructions to get the car and to return the car are the most detailed! Thank you for renting out your BMW at a good rate (better than car rental companies IMO). We will definitely rent from Joseph again if given the chance. Mahalo! 🤙🏼

The car was pristine! We had four people with luggage and it fit us all comfortably. It had all the new safety features and was a nice ride. The best part was how easy it was to get and return to the airport. Beats renting from a car rental agency. Highly recommend this vehicle.

It was our first Turo renting, and one of the best renting experiences we ever have, period. Watch-out the other professional rental companies, turo is coming strong. Joseph is very easy to work with, very accommodating, very informative, great communication, and professional. His car is a new 4x4, spacious, easy to drive around, which makes our trip one of the best we ever have

Awesome car and service. Extremely clean and reliable. The vehicle was a hybrid and 30 mpg or better all the time. This is very important with the high gas prices on the island. January 2022 was around $4.65 per gallon. We used Uber for the quick drive to their property. Fast and easy drop off and return.

TK was a great host, and the car was in tip-top condition. He responded almost immediately to inquiries with kind, clear, helpful directions. This was my first experience with Turo, and I definitely preferred it over working with a rental agency. I would look for TK again if I were back in Hawaii.

The jeep was great for going all over the island! We went up to the Maunakea summit, which a lot of rental companies and Turo owners don't allow. CJ was also great to work with, responding quickly to any questions and offering a lot of good tips for where to go and what to see!

This was our first Turo rental. I think this Turo rental exceeded regular car rentals. One can find cars in Turo that are normally not available with rental car companies. Ryan's Jeep was totally clean and he had no restrictions like rental companies have. Ryan was very professional, friendly, courteous, his inventory is totally amazingly clean and all terrain performers. I think other Turo hosts can take Ryan as role model. Kudos Ryan. I'll rent again with you!!

Nissan Rogue 2016

We booked this 2016 Nissan Rogue, and it was the perfect vehicle for our party of three on 5-day trip. If you're visiting the Big Island and are planning to see as much as possible, then you need a car. The Rogue was easy to drive, park and jump in-and-out on our power sightseeing days. We own the exact same vehicle back at home. The cost to Turo this SUV was more than 50% less than renting a compact car from the cheapest rental car company. It gets great gas mileage! We drove about 550 miles and only had to fill it up twice - that's less than $100 spent on gas. It's a SUV with good leg room and plenty of space in the back for a cooler, backpacks, boogie boards and snorkel gear. The AC and short distance drives were great breaks from the heat/humidity. This Rogue has the interior floor mats, for the sand and mud (if you go hiking) - it helps keep the mess to a minimum. We also added the pre-paid cleaning fee to our rental, which was well worth it. We recommend selecting this vehicle and supporting this host with your reservation. Tips about driving on the island: • Respect the Rogue. It is not a sports car or for off road driving. BUT!! - It will comfortably get you and your passengers to any of the hundreds of tours, beaches, bays, activities, monuments, lookout points, restaurants, gardens, parks, or waterfalls to see/visit. • Respect the locals, and don't drive fast. Be patient. You will end up behind someone driving slow. It happened to us many times, but it was no big deal. We safely got to EVERY spot on our many lists. • Drive the speed limit. It is the "Big" Island, but you can drive across the middle from Kona-to-Hilo (less than 90 miles) in less than 1.5-2 hours. • Wake up early and get out the door. The best of the Big Island is seen during the day. Take it all in. There are interesting things to see and amazing views everywhere. • Pay attention while driving to each destination. Some of the roads are narrow with no guard rails.

Kalena and Jessica were great host and when we dropped the vehicle off they had just driven in. Kalena offered to drop off at the airport instead of having to get other transportation. The vehicle pick up is just a few miles from the airport but his generosity spoke volumes to us. The Kia drove very well and in good condition. We drove from one side of the island to the other and had no issues. Good on mileage which is great given gas prices in Hawaii. We did this at the last minute as the airport had no availability. Never heard of Toro until then but would definitely use again.

Second time renting this vehicle from Gary. He and his wife are very helpful and accommodating with meeting us at the airport and getting us the vehicle to the return. They are fantastic to deal with. I appreciate how nice this all went. The Nissan Rogue is a great vehicle for touring the big island. We have been all over the island between our two trips with the vehicle. Comfortable, reliable, and decent fuel mileage, which is a good thing here. We had three adults traveling on this trip and always had plenty of room on our adventures. I hope that this vehicle is available for our next trip here.

First time using Turo and it was great! Daphne's pre-trip and post-trip communications were excellent. We got to her car in about one minute once we had our luggage (much faster than a rental car agency). The car was spotless and in great shape. Good gas mileage as well. I will rent from Daphne again on our next trip to the Big Island.

Nice family that really wants to make your experience the best it can be. Rental Car companies are extremely expensive , if you can find a car at all. Met for pickup and drop off at the airport. The car ran smoothly and was reliable. Windows could not be rolled up from driver’s side, but other than that, the car was solid. This was our first time using Turo and we would do it again if rental cars are scarce. These are good people

John provided us with a great car for our trip exploring the island. It got very good gas mileage, was reliable and clean, just perfect for our needs. Just a note, we saw a couple of places that recommended four-wheel drive, and we opted not to go there. It looked like those roads definitely needed higher clearance than a standard SUV

Really enjoyed exploring the Big Island in Anna's brand new Jeep. The pickup and dropoff were effortless. The Jeep was handed to us clean and with beach gears loaded. Anna was very responsive to all my questions and requests throughout the trip and also gave me great tips on where to go. The Jeep drove great with its new A/T tires (not the regular road tires you'll find on the Jeeps from rental companies). We were able to summit Mauna Kea, go down to Waipio Valley and visit green sand beach without any issues (We did ask for Anna's prior permission for driving the 4x4 only roads).

Perfect family vehicle for this island! Brandon was super mellow, I accidentally booked our trip from 12 am to 12 am but I I actually meant 12pm - 12pm and Brandon was communicative and professional about the mistake. He did not give me a hard time about the inconvenience. Brandon and I spoke a few times via text once I made the reservation. He did not bother us or make anything a hassle. He was responsive and the SUV was waiting for us as planned with no hiccups or surprises. We took the vehicle to the Hilo side one day a checked out a few water falls along the way. We could fit everything we needed and more. We used the USB to listen to music on our iPhones as there is both aux and usb jacks in the car. Pick up and drop off were both hassle free and I will be renting from Brandon next time we come to the island.

As we expected the Soul was a fun and zippy car to drive. What we didn't expect was a fender bender, Totally our fault. Yet Amy dealt with it so well, understanding that we didn't realize what had happened until after the trip. Amy communicated with our tired travel brains and quickly arranged for the repairs at a fair and reasonable cost. We weren't surprised by Amy's fabulous customer service. She brought the car right to the arrival area and let us return it at the curb. Best rental service we've had. Thank you Amy!

Jeep Renegade 2017

Ryan’s keep renegade was the perfect vehicle for this magical trip. It was able to handle everything we threw at it (within reasonable limits of what the contract allowed, of course). And it was supremely comfortable with excellent side and rear visibility and high ground clearance. It is also equipped with a very good GPS system. In particular, Waipio Valley and Mauna Kea were challenges that it handled splendidly. The low gear and downslope modes are intuitive and allowed us to drive with total confidence on sometimes harrowing roads. For a car of this type, the gas mpg was also quite good. Ryan himself was a wonderful and chill guy, who made us feel totally comfortable and welcome before, during and after the trip. He provided valuable tips about places to visit, and was totally up front and responsive during the trip, and gave us confidence that someone had our backs. We forgot to bring our tripod for astrophotogeaphy on Mauna Kea, and he stepped up with a very good tripod that he sold to us at a very reasonable price. On the last day when we were late for our flight, he even drove us to the airport!! A stand up guy all round and someone you can rent one of his excellent fleet of jeeps from with total confidence.

Mychelle with Fantastic Race Kona was super helpful and accommodating from the moment we booked our vehicle rental. We only needed her Jeep rental for one day so we could go up to the Mauna Kea summit, and she offered tips and information every step of the way, including a personal tutorial on how to use 4WD so we would feel comfortable and safe. When our flight into Kona got delayed by 3 hours and we needed to adjust our rental time at the last minute, Mychelle was promptly responsive and communicative. She also helped us with some itinerary planning so we could make the most of our 3 short days on Big Island. Book with Fantastic Race, you won’t regret it! Thank you so much for a wonderful first time Turo experience!!

She even gave us some trip suggestions as well. As for the car it was perfect for our family of 5 adults. We had such a great time exploring the island and the spacious trunk with the third row of seats down fit all of our luggage too. Can’t wait to visit the Big Island again and book a car from Leolinda!
