Caroline was extremely helpful with the rental process. The vehicle was immaculate. We enjoyed our trip to Kauai and having a vehicle available enabled us to tour the island and visit tourist attractions.
Matt was super easy to communicate with and offered great suggestions on our trip, the hybrid option was perfect considering current gas prices .
Nice Car. Fast communication. Easy pickup/drop off. REALLY nice to have an electric (or hybrid) car w current gas prices.
Charlene was great. Super kind, communicative, helpful, and easy to deal with. Car was great too. Absolutely a much better experience than renting through a car rental agency!!
The Kia Sportage worked great for our family of 5 for 7 days in Hswaii. Communication was fantastic. The price is amazing compared to other rental companies. Easy pick up and drop off👍
Great transaction! Would easily use Turo and Newman & Pricilla again. Easier car pickup than the rental companies.
Great experience. Never going back to a rental agency again! Everything worked out great. Felt like a VIP picking up the car!
This was so easy to rent from Christopher and the car was exactly what we needed. Having a hybrid with gas prices this high was amazing! Thank you!
Great host! Vehicle drove well. Would recommend over your traditional rental companies. Support local!
Super easy. Better than going rehiring the traditional rental companies. Poipu Rental customer service and communications super fast. Thank you for a great trip.
Clean, easy pick up and drop off. So much better then using car rental companies.
Convenient airport pick-up and return. Lower rate than big rental companies. Nicer car! (Jeep Liberty)
Turo provided a great alternative to the high costs car rental companies are currently charging.
Great car for the island and Kyle is super helpful. Made the whole process much easier than dealing with car rental companies!
Matt was great at communicating and modifying the reservation to help us. More reliable than the rental companies for sure!! I highly recommend him and Turo!! Jeff
This was my second experience using Turo. It just reinforced my thought thought that I may never use a traditional car rental agency again.
Cynthia is awesome. It was so easy. Car is very clean. The experience was much better than car rental companies
Nathaniel was great with communication! Very helpful, car was easy to find & had plenty of room for family of 4. Way better option than the big car rental companies, highly recommended!! Thank you Nathaniel.
At least in 2022 as of this review, it was awesome to rent a quite new 2021 SUV in great condition. Much more affordable than a big rental company, and faster and easier pickup -- just walked to the parking lot and picked it up. No slow rental counter or anything to deal with. Prompt communication, too. Thanks, Jabrielle!
First time using Turo and it was an absolute breeze. The car was clean and fairly new. As advertised, no hidden surprises. Nate was great with instructions to help us navigate the pick up and drop off. Having a rental car is key on Kauai and there are only a limited supply with the rental companies. Nate has a small fleet through Turo that has competitive prices and nice cars! Unfortunately Turo drivers cannot pick you up at the airport as I was informed so plan to Uber/Taxi from and to the airport (5 min/15$ ride).
A big thank you to the Rothstein’s for adding a quality vehicle with excellent service to a great Kauai vacation. By far the easiest, fastest process we’ve experienced getting and returning a rental car on any of our past trips. Casey will be our first choice for car rental on our next visit to Kauai. If every Turo host ran their business like the Rothsteins the major rental companies would be out of business. Thanks again for adding value to our Kauai experience.
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!
The car was easy to find. Very nice clean car holds 6 and good gas mileage. It was probably easier than going to one of the big rental companies. I’m a believer!!!
Jeep was awesome! They communicated great, easy to pick up and drop off. Everything we hoped for and way more convenient than a rental agency. Highly recommend.
I rented Josh’s cross trek for 5 days. Pricing was very reasonable as compared to rental companies. He communicated where and how to pick up the car, very simple and quick. Had a technical question which he addressed right away.My mom rented her car through a rental service and was jealous of this turo service. Easy 5/5.
This was my first time using Turo. The car was perfect, the communication was perfect and everything was easy. I feel it was easier than going thru a traditional rental process
Easy pick up and communicative host. We didn’t love that we were tracked the entire week (with the AirTag beeping periodically to notify us of being tracked by the host) but otherwise all was smooth and simple. It’s expensive, but everything on the island is overpriced and you’ll pay a lot more with a traditional car rental agency, so we would do it again.
Cecilia made our first trip to Kauai very pleasant. Everything went very smoothly and Cecilia was very helpful, friendly and responsive to our questions! Her Kia was a fun yet economical little hybrid vehicle which came in handy especially with the soaring gas prices. Mahalo again Cecilia…hopefully when we return, we’ll get a chance to rent from you again!
Easy pick up and drop off at the airport. Good communication throughout the rental process
Dan was super flexible and made an emergency situation super easy. He saved our anniversary trip due to our rental breaking down and all rental companies were sold out. The Subaru drove great and was very comfortable. Thank you Dan!
This was our first Turo experience and pick up and drop off were incredibly fast. Jeanine gave us an extra boogie board, the Toyota Highlander worked well for our family. Way less expensive and more hassle free than rental companies!
Paul was fantastic from start to finish. This was our first time using TURO and Paul was wonderful to deal with. I will never go back to a rental agency again. Paul was easy to communicate with and was most accommodating. He saved us SO much time and hassle. He greeted us with a welcome gift bag, a guidebook for our trip, and his Bronco Sport was a perfect vehicle for our island adventures. I highly recommend Paul as he was so courteous, attentive, and responsive. 5/5 stars for sure. We look forward to booking with Paul again when we come back to Kauai!
Enisa’s Rogue was perfect for our stay in Kauai, A/C works great, car was clean, no issues at all! She was very kind and accommodating during our rental process! 10/10 would rent again!
Barbara was extremely accommodating in arranging our vehicle pickup and drop off. So much easier than waiting for over an hour at the rental counter. We loved her new Kia Soul! It was the perfect car for toting the two of us and our 6 bags around the island.
Julie was a great host! Very communicative about the whole rental process. Was able to set up a ride to and from the airport for pick up and drop off of the vehicle. Her Ford Edge was great, very clean and reliable. We had a wonderful trip!
Perfect! Better than any rental agency I ever used. Bryson and Kaira are on top of it thank you for helping us have an amazing experience.
Great experience. While we needed to take an Uber a few minutes away from the airport to pick up the car it was still much faster than dealing with the rental desk for the major rental companies (which can take an hour plus to get through).
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!
Meghan was friendly and very responsive! Her CR-V was perfect for getting around Kauai with our family of four. Airport pick-up and drop-off was very convenient and definitely easier than using a traditional rental agency.
Believe it or not, with the happenstance of all major rental companies being sold out and Lam’s accommodations, this trip would not have happen at all. Thank you!
Beautiful car. New condition. Seamless pick-up and drop-off. Much simpler to use than the big mega- rental companies. Will definitely use again!!
After shopping for a rental car for our vacation, we decided to try Turo since the prices were so much more reasonable than the standard rental car companies. Nathaniel and his wife Erin run a great business and is eager to make sure you have a positive experience. Nathaniel is an excellent communicator which was especially important to us as first time Turo users. He made sure we had all the information we needed to pick up and return the car. We rented his Kia Soul which was the perfect island wheels. The car was located fairly close to the airport, but you will need transportation to get there. I would recommend setting up a taxi or Uber ahead of time to meet your flight since they are very limited. Nathaniel also gave us some contact names which was very helpful.
Norman made scheduling and returning his vehicle super easy. He answered all my questions promptly and professionally, and was very clear about how to use Turo (since this was my first rental). Norman’s car was super clean (spotless). This rental was also much cheaper than the larger rental agency for the same or similar vehicle. All around great experience and 10/10 would recommend Norman as a host for your next trip.
So much easier and nicer than renting a car from a rental agency! Crystal was so easy and nice to work with. The car was very clean and great on gas.
Cecilia was an awesome host and the car was perfect for our Kauai trip! Very quick to respond to messages and always helpful, the pick up and drop off instructions were easy to follow. The car was super clean and ready to go when we arrived. The gas mileage on this car can't be beat. With gas prices well above $5/gallon this was especially appreciated as we explored the island.
Kia was very clean, comfortable. No issues, no worries about reliability because vehicle is new. Nathaniel is very quick to respond to questions and very helpful in guiding these first time Turo customers through the myriad of Turo requirements. Be mindful and adhere to the Turo pick up/drop off instructions. Also at the time of this writing, time, Lihue airport does not allow for Turo vehicle pickup or drop at the airport parking lot, So know ahead of time and be aware that one must arrange a ride share or taxi to offsite Turo parking. Less than two miles away, but we had quite a wait for ride share service. Overall Nathaniel was great and easy to work with, Turo certainly is less expensive and much different than renting a vehicle from your big rental companies.
Excellent communication, clean and comfortable car. Bonus that it was the easiest/fastest car rental process I’ve ever experienced. Thanks so much, Nathaniel!
This was the easiest rental car pickup and return ever! I highly recommend!! Don't wait in line at Hertz etc when you can get personal no wait service for a cheaper price. And everyone we dealt with were sooo nice. 10 stars!!!
We had a great experience with our first Turo! The process was easy and was more affordable than a rental with the regular car rental companies. Nate was very helpful and friendly. The car was clean and worked great for getting around the island. Highly recommend!
The rental process was easy, instructions were clear, and the owners at Alii Rental Cars were fast to respond! Would rent with them again!
This was my first time using Turo and the experience was great. Gary was timely with instructions and had the CRV ready for us at the airport when we arrived. Drop off was also easy at the end of our trip. It was much simpler than jumping through hoops at a car rental agency. I would recommend reserving Gary’s vehicle to anyone making a visit to Kauai.
