Easy communication. Seamless pick up and drop off. Way cheaper than mainstream car rentals right now (if you’re lucky enough to even secure a reservation). We were in desperate need of a car for our vacation, Turo and Ugly Duckling were very reliable, the car was in great condition and we enjoyed our road trips in it. Thank you!

Andriy was so accommodating and very helpful from the minute we booked our rental to the very last second of our trip! He absolutely saved our trip as we struggled finding a cost effective rental car for weeks! Thank you so very much Andriy for being so kind, welcoming, and truly amazing!!! Our family appreciates you! You deserve more than a 5 star rating!!!! Mahalo until next time!!!

John was responsive to my questions about the rental and process. He made it super easy to pick up near the arrival gate. SUV was clean and smelled fresh. Good gas mileage and AC worked great. Thanks for making our first Turo experience pleasant!

This was easily the most pleasant car rental experience ever. The Jeep was spotless and the hosts were very accommodating with pick up and drop off. Thomas and Becky were so incredibly friendly and shared a long list of suggestions for places to explore, hike, and eat. Just honest, good people.

Due to the car rental shortage, we were nervous to use Turo for the first time. Peter was awesome and easy to work with and understanding with all the rescheduling. Highly recommend.

Pros: 1. Fast responses from and easy communication with Tom and Kelly (Kelly dropped and picked up the car at the airport) throughout the trip. Kelly even messaged me to check how I am doing in the middle of my family trip. 2. Pick-up/drop-off location (KOA airport parking lot) 3. Good car operating condition overall (conditions that you can expect for 5-year old car). There were scratches on wheels and small dents on bumpers so I took pictures and posted them on the Turo as it's suggested by Turo during check-in. 4. Reasonable price as compared to other listings at the time of my reservation, considering busy season with high demands. Cons: 1. I had to replace the car key fob battery in the middle of trip. This is unforeseen issue for the car owner so I am not complaining. But it could been nice if an extra battery was available in the car :) Anyways, Kelly reimbursed me the battery price immediately after my trip with apology. Thanks, Kelly. Mahalo~~

If you need to rent a car, use Nic! He is such a nice guy and so easy going to work with. His car is well taken care of and drives great. Nic checked in throughout our trip and offered advice on parking and restaurants in the area. He was incredibly responsive and went above and beyond to make pick up and drop off easy. We had an incredible experience and totally recommend him.

Andriy was a great host! Wonderful information, very responsive and friendly, too. The car was perfect for what we needed. Included a trip to the southern tip, two trips to Hilo, and up to the visitor center on Mauna Kea for sunset. The car performed great for all parts of the trip, and it fit four tall people comfortably (5’9 and 6’2 girls and 6’6” and 6’ 10” guys). Highly recommend!

Thomas and Becky are the most wonderful hosts ever. The rental experience was smooth and the car is absolutely fantastic to drive around the island. Unfortunately we had an accident and the Jeep was damaged a bit, but we were well protected by the car and cared and looked after by Thomas and Becky. Truly grateful for all their kindness. Also the rate they charge is the most honest and friendly, despite the island is running out of rental cars and almost all other hosts surged their rental price to at least 2x of what they are charging. Wish them all the best and if you can book with them, consider yourself lucky. We definitely feel that way.

Great car and amazing experience with Andriy. He was prompt, friendly, and very accommodating. He was ready with the car at the arrivals area when we arrived. He handed us the keys and we just got in and drove away. An awesome experience relative to standard car rental services. The car was in immaculate condition and we didn’t worry at all. He also provided us with some snorkeling gear, body boards and info for the Big Island. A really nice touch that we appreciated. He was also available by text or phone and he freely shared information about the island. When it was time to go home, he was waiting at the departures area and it was a simple as turning over the keys and that was all. I highly recommend Andriy and his service.

Steven's car was a perfect and new one. We spend wonderful 2 weeks and the car helped us a lot. Some parts of the island are really inaccessible with standard rental car offers, but with this car, you can definitely visit it. Pick-up and drop-off procedures were simple, we just took a key from the key safe box in the car on short-term parking and got the car. Steven took care of the car very well, he provides us a very clean car, when even wheels had additional blackening. Thanks for the great possibility to see the beauty of Big Island and the good car for that.

Steven’s jeep was the perfect vehicle for my coworkers and I trip to big island. Not only was it clean, in good condition, and down right awsome, but Steve and his wife made it very easy to pick up and drop off for me. They provided better customer service than any rental car company ever would have not to mention local advice on what to do and were to go for our adventures.
