Katrina was so helpful with everything. So easy to pick up the car at the airport and not having to wait in line at the car rental agency was so great! The car was so clean and ran very well. Thank you Katrina so much!
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!
To say this vehicle made our honeymoon in Kaua’i is a vast understatement. Juice made the renting process easy and efficient with no hassle whatsoever. Upon landing at the airport in Lihue, I was greeted with a message from Juice regarding the car’s location and how she would unlock the vehicle. We were quickly off on our trip. The Ford Escape was great on gas and was in fantastic condition. Although we didn’t want to leave the island, the drop off was just as simple of a process. I would highly recommend this vehicle and Juice herself.
Matthew was very easy to work with and made the process so simple. So much more pleasant than dealing with the rental car companies. Mahalo Matthew!
Clean and wonderful car! Perfect for our vacation! Could not have asked for a better car for our trip. Couldn’t beat the price either! Naiona was a wonderful host and was so accommodating for us having our plane arrive early. Would recommend anyone coming to the island to rent this car with Naiona! Thank you for a lovely and and dependable service!
We were on our way to Kauai when we changed our rental car to Turo. Originally we had planned to use a rental car company (no names mentioned;), when we looked up Turo. Not only was it such a nice car (clean and so nice to drive), it was so much more convenient than driving in a shuttle to get your crappy rental car that usually smells like smoke. Also using Turo was a lot cheaper. It was a WIN all the way around. I will never use rental car companies again. And I will specially use this vehicle whenever we make our way to Kauai. Mahalo
From start to finish...this reservation was seamless. There were so many nice touches along the way - from the welcome note to her responsiveness to my text. I would highly recommend this vehicle. Car was clean and she even leaves you a Lysol wipes container for you to use throughout the trip.
I have never had a car rental go more smoothly or convent. Nathaniel the car was fantastic and so were you!
This was my first time using Turo and Jacob and Melyssa made it so easy. They were communicative, responsive, helpful, and overall very lovely people. The car was dropped off when we landed and easy to return back at the airport. Much better than dealing with rental car companies and lines. The Ford Edge is a great car - very comfortable and drives really well. Best part was the carseat add-on for our 2 year old! Overall an excellent experience.
The car was wonderful - it was perfect for our vacation in exploring Poipu and Koala in Kauai. Amber was great to deal with - very good communicator and very nice. It was a great experience to rent the Ford from Amber.
Mercedes was great to rent from! She was very helpful, providing all the information we needed and was accommodating to all our requests. The car was also nice, clean, and easy to operate. I would recommend Mercedes’ car to anyone looking for a great car rental in Kauai. Mahalo Mercedes!
Matthew’s Ford Explorer was perfect for our trip to Kauai. The car was clean and fully gassed up and waiting for us right when we got off the plane. The SUV was perfect for all of our luggage (we overpacked lol). If you want a reliable, clean car, this is the one for you!
Julia’s Ford EcoSport is a brand new vehicle. Smooth ride and great on gas! Julia was reliable and accommodating! Her communication was great and the price on her car was a reasonable price in comparison to other renters on the island. We picked up from the vehicle - she unlocked it and we dropped it off at the airport. I would recommend her for any couple or family of 4! Definitely need a vehicle on this island and this one was great!
Wow! What an awesome vehicle! This 2021 Ford Bronco is super clean and nice. It also gets you literally anywhere on the island you want to go! Wanna hit Polihale beach? You can either ease. Car rides really well and is super tech interface smooth. Brandon the owner is super easy to work with. He responds very quickly and makes picking up and dropping the car off a breeze. Highly recommend anything Brandon has to rent. Enjoy adventuring!!
This was my first experience with Turo and I will never rent a car another way again. It was fantastic! After standing in the Hertz line for an hour and a half outside in the heat at the Kauai airport, I was denied my reservation because I did not have the card I booked the reservation with. I took a taxi to my condo and once there, began researching rental cars. Due to Covid, many of the rental cars were sent to the mainland when the island shut down and car rentals are a nightmare. Luckily, I found Melyssa and Jacob through Turo. They delivered the car right to our condo! It was a brand new Ford Edge. It drove well and was very comfortable. I highly recommend renting this small SUV from Jacob and Melyssa!!!
Lauren is great, the car was excellent, clean, and her instructions made it a seamless experience. Will definitely be renting from her in the future.
Nathaniel was an amazing host. The bronco was great! We mostly drove around the island and explored the towns. The bronco gets great gas miles and rides really well. Nathaniel was helpful beyond the car with local restaurant and site recommendations. We would absolutely rent from him again.
Natalie was great to work with. She was very responsive to my many questions and even made concessions at my request which she did not need to do. The car was right where she said it would be for pickup and was clean and ran great. I would recommend her to my friends and relatives and would rent from her again if I was in Kauai!
Pick up and drop off were super easy. Natalie was very accessible for questions. The car was in great shape. Would definitely recommend renting from Natalie.
Cynthia was amazing in every way! She was able to accommodate a different pickup/drop off location. She messaged back immediately when I had questions. Her price, comparatively speaking, was better than most and the car was in great condition and was so fun to ride around the island in.
Perfect car for cruising the whole island. Jake went above and beyond to make sure we were set and even have some recommendations. Will rent from him again.
The car is great, very comfortable, runs very smoothly, easy to drive, and well protected with various covers and mats. Evan is very responsive and friendly, which we really appreciate. Highly recommend!
Wonderful experience. Easy pickup, great, clean car, flexible with some last minute changes- would absolutely rent from Patricia again.
Chanel was great to work with, responsive, accommodating and she even put together a welcome package in the car when I picked it up!! Pick up and drop off were a breeze, and the Explorer was a great vehicle to use around Kauai. Everything I needed for my few days adventuring, including a beach chair and towel! Highly recommended and would definitely rent from her again :)
This was a wonderful experience! The host was so nice and easy to talk to. Getting the car and dropping of the car was very easy. Great communication. The car drove smoothly and was extremely roomy. I would rent this car again!
My son Joseph and I had a wonderful time in Kauai and the car that we rented from Nathaniel was just lovely. Nathaniel was easy to work with and very accommodating. This is the first time we ever used Turo and I will use it again. Thank you
Frankly a perfect experience. Nathan communicated very clearly and was able to respond quickly when we needed him. Check in was smooth, he had parked the car right at the exit of the airport terminal. Since we we’re able to use his child seat we didn’t have to bring it with us on the plane — that’s worth a lot if you consider all the stuff parents have to bring on a trip. As a nice gesture Nathan provided us with a set of beach toys. We really liked that.
Super clean car and clear instructions. We loved being able to rent chairs and an umbrella!! Thank you!!
Fantastic brand new car! It's the perfect size for fitting into small spots with the feel and space of a small-sized SUV. We took advantage of the extras offered with no regrets. Already having your beach gear in the car waiting you at the airport is a welcome convenience. Nathaniel was responsive, attentive, and customer-oriented. His extra touches were appreciated and gave the experience a personal feel. Dropoff at the airport was fast and painless. If you are going to rent a car, you should support a local and choose this vehicle, you won't be disappointed.
Jenyffer was amazing to work with! We had an issue and missed our flight day one so we arrived a day late. She could of said oh well and charged us for that day we missed but she didn’t! That speaks to the character and type of person she is. Made us feel a little better on a bad day. Car was clean, drove well, and fit all our needs. She was amazing, thanks again and would highly recommend Jenyffer!!!
Communication with Julie was great and pickup and drop-off were both a breeze. The SUV was exactly what we needed with tons of room for the 4 of us. And having the cooler came in handy as well.
We had the best trip and the car process was so easy! We’ve never used turo before and we had the best experience!
The Ford Edge was perfect for 3people and golf clubs. Turo was a smooth process. The owner made the whole process easy. It was our first time using Turo. We would definitely do it again.
Had a great trip with Juice's car! Pickup and return was smooth. Appreciated the cookies!
Lynn was super communicative and the entire process was easy and smooth. The car was great and exactly as described.
Easy! Christine was also super friendly and gave us a free care pack with items that made our trip a lot easier.
Jacob and Melyssa were amazing to deal with and very quick to respond with our questions. The 2021 Bronco was super clean and very comfortable for 4 adults. Would definitely rent from them again!!
This was the perfect car for a few days in Kauai and Nathaniel was great at communicating.
Shantel’s car was the PERFECT car to zip around the island in! It was small, fuel efficient, and fun to drive! Actually considering buying an escape after driving this for a week. 😂🤙🏻 great trip! THANKS! 💙
Lauren was a great host! She made pick up and drop off extremely easy. Great detailed instructions and pictures. The car was super clean and maintained. I highly recommend Lauren and her Bronco. :D
Tatiana was a great host. Responded immediately when we had any questions. No problems picking up or dropping off car. Definitely recommend!!
These folks were so great to work with, kept us well informed. Gave us some great recommendations and were really good about pickup and drop off. Car was wonderful. Clean, and worked very well for us.
Everything went well. Used the 1.5 miles from the airport to the car to stretch the legs after the flight.
This was my first actual booking on Turo and I couldn’t have asked for a better car or host! Jenyffer was super professional and friendly at the same time. She made us feel at ease from beginning to end with all of our needs and always being one step ahead with everything we needed to know! The car was so awesome too! Super comfy and easy to drive! We had 2 adults, 3 car seats, lots of bags and it was still very roomy. I highly recommend booking with Jennyfer :)
Lynn was such a joy to work with! She was incredibly accommodating and so kind with each request. At times, I thought it must be some type of scam because she was so so so nice. Car was in perfect condition. Our trip was a success because of Lynn and her kindness!
Jacob and Melyssa were the Best. Friendly and helpful. The car is brand new and drives so smoothly. We loved the car and loved Jacob and Melyssa. They are a MUST if you visit the island.
Great communication with Nathaniel. Nice car, extremely clean. Great experience with pick up at airport. Expect to pay $15 to exit airport parking lot. Very good experience for our first Turo booking
Great car to use on vacation. It was spacious and even had a huge umbrella for us to use when it rained on occasion.
Diane is a great host and very communicative. Lola was very reliable and drives very smoothly all around the island. She even fit my 6’8 bf in the car easily. Great car to use on the island.
Heather was great to work with. The Bronco worked perfectly for our needs. Great on gas. Nice new car!
First time using Turo and couldn’t have asked for a better experience. Pick up/drop off was a breeze and the bronco was the perfect car to explore the island. The list of activities to do was perfect for what we needed. Next time I’m back on Kauai, I will definitely be getting a car from them again!
Brandon was a great host and worked with me when my schedule changed. The car was in great condition and very clean. We had a great time driving around the island and would recommend working with Brandon if able
Great experience, Patricia even went above and beyond to help us find the car since we were dealing with a real child melt-down on our end. Very practical car for families.
Great SUV Matthew is responsive and easy to deal with. Perfect for our week stay in Kauai.
Mercedes couldn’t be nicer or a more pleasant person to work with! She was incredibly proactive and quick in her responses. The car’s condition was great and accurate to the photos in the listing. We also loved the list of recommendations she included to support local restaurants and businesses. Overall I would highly recommend booking with her!!
Cynthia made pickup and drop-off extremely convenient. The car drove great and it was much needed to get around the island. We’ll definitely look for it next time :) Thank you!!!
