Newman & Priscilla were very easy to book with. Great communication, great car and super easy pick up and drop off at the airport in Lihue. The car was parked and waiting for us right outside the baggage area, just grabbed our luggage and were on our way in minutes. The car was super clean and got great gas mileage. I would definitely rent again and highly recommend Newman & Priscilla’s Kia 🤙🏼
Best experience ever. When all over rental companies at a kidney & a liver to rent a car- Turo to the rescue! More importantly, thank goodness for Nathaniel! Price was reasonable and the whole experience was overall great- easy which was most important. He provided great communication. And no lie- we really enjoyed his ride! I had a Kia Optima and I loved it but that was 6 years ago and the technology with the new Kia has changed for the better! Apple car play is a huge game changer! Thank you again Nathaniel!
Nathaniel’s Kia Soul was perfect for our trip on Kauai! It was easy to drive, overall spacious and perfect at getting anywhere we needed to go around the island!! Nathaniel was great to work with and everything about our experience was fantastic! The car was easy to pick up, communication was spot on and it was clean and very professional. He even included a “things to do” information packet as well as a box of Hawaiian cookies! I don’t think we will ever use rental car companies again!! I highly recommend Turo and renting from Nathaniel! Thank you for a great experience!
TJ was exceptionally responsive and the car was as shown. Performed beautifully across the island, especially in downpours. Just an FYI to clarify with owners their expectations of interior condition upon return. We are an active family, and enjoyed the island as fully as possible despite the rain, and regret not changing shoes and some clothing before getting in the car. Definitely a new behavior to adapt to that’s a departure from renting from rental car companies.
Tamara was great. She dropped off the car for us even though it wasn’t included or required in our rental cost. Her communication was great and I’d definitely recommend renting from her. The sportage worked perfectly for our family of four.
I loved using this car. It was very comfortable in the back and front and had enough truck room for 4 x-lg suitcases and other bags. Sarah and her brother were great! Would definitely rent again and now are looking to purchase the same Kia for myself.
I definitely recommend Nathaniel and his Kia - quick and smooth contact. Car is new and in a great condition. Everything was as described. We also took advantage of renting the baby items - very useful.
Sarah was very helpful and communicated very well. The car was spotless and just the right size and price! So glad we used Turo and Sarah in Kauai!
Austin was great. The car is immaculate. Everything was so easy and well organized. This was a great alternative to the rental car companies.
More than just a car rental... Gina and George gave some great tips on what to do and where to eat. Car was fantastic.
I had a great experience with Cielo!!! I had my first experience with damaging a rental car by turning around in a gravel and grass parking lot and the passenger side running board on our SUV scraped across an old remnant of a cement post for an old utility light pole….UGGHH…. when you hear that sound…..that you’ve inadvertently hit something, your heart sinks!!! I had purchased the minimum insurance plan for this trip, so I was afraid of what this damage would cost to repair (I was responsible for the first $3,000 in damages). Cielo was so professional when I reported the damage and he also found an auto body shop to do the repairs at a very fair price….. I’ve been very impressed and give Cielo 5+ stars, and recommend them highly! Thank you Cielo!!🥰
Turo was a site I was resisting for the fact most of the fees seemed pretty outrageous. I sure am glad I decided to try it. "Our" Kia was everything we needed and more. It started from the moment I made the purchase(which was reasonable), the communication from Jenny was swift & very helpful. Pick up was a breeze, the tank was full, and it was clean and ready to roll right from the Lihue AIRPORT! What a convenience when you are on vacation in an exotic locale to have a car ready to go 50 steps from baggage claim. No problems at all for our party of 5 during our adventure, and the AC & comfy seating made for a smooth drive. Drop-off was also easy. Got a wash at Sudz, quick vacuum, gassed up, and left it at the airport where we picked it up. Jenny was awesome before, during, and after. I was a bit sad letting it go, but our adventure had come to an end. Mahalo, Jenny...we will hopefully be renting from you again! 🌺ALHOA!
Gina was phenomenal before, during, and after the car rental! She even helped ease my traveling mishaps, issues and delays experienced when arriving to Kauai and was having one of the most stressful travel days I’ve ever experienced. She also provided many suggestions and ideas of activities and places to go while on the island. A very welcome wealth of knowledge and kindness. I highly recommend this car: it drives wonderfully and was a smooth ride for my friend and I all over Kauai. Mahalo for everything!
Paul is a great host and was extremely helpful. The car is practically in brand new condition and was very clean. I'd rent from him again.
Our rental was perfect! TJ was gracious enough to allow us to deliver car seats for our kiddos directly to him and they were waiting for us in the car upon pick up. Fuel efficient, spacious, clean and comfortable. We spent a lot of time in the car driving around the island and it took good care of us. Thanks TJ!
Tamara is absolutely wonderful! She made everything so easy and helped with recommendations around the island during our stay. She was so sweet to leave some goodies in the car for our toddler. She was easy to reach and even saved the day when I locked my bag in the car. Would 100% rent with Tamara next time we are in Kauai. ❤️
Wallace was extremely easy to communicate with. Very responsive to every message and question and very accommodating as to arrangements for pick-up and return. The car (except for a minor dent in rear which Wallace was quick to point out) was in very good condition and worked well for four of us travelling with four rolling suitcases. I would definitely rent from him again!!
Quick & easy communication. Reliable & clean car. Easy airport pickup. Would def rent from Elizabeth again. She also was helpful with beach, food, & hiking recommendations!
Car was in excellent condition and Tj explained all the steps making it an extremely smooth and easy pick up and drop off—much faster than using a rental car company.
Nate was responsive beginning to end. Car was as described. Pick up/drop off were easy and smooth. Would definitely recommend and will rent again.
Great trip. Far more convenient than the hour and 45 minutes I spent picking up a car from a traditional rental company on my previous trip.
Shana’s car was perfect for our family to take in some of the beautiful sights of Kauaʻi (despite the rain). The process was seamless and Shana responded quickly with our questions and provided clear info for the check-in and out process. We were really pleased with our decision to rent thru Turo and with Shana.
Great experience, so easy and Kylie was quick to respond and very helpful. Rented 2 kid's booster seats from her that were in the car when we arrived. Car was waiting for us at the airport, tank full. Wipers and tires could use an upgrade soon, but no issues with the car overall. Highly recommend!
Perfect car for our trip. a. Casey was very helpful and the process renting the car was very easy.
Renting Sara’s car was the best experience! She was helpful, responsive and easy to work with. The car was clean and in good working order. We will rent from her again soon.
Our rental was great! Car was in a convenient location just outside of baggage claim full tank and clean. EZ exit from airport. We had five adults and we had enough room with bags. This car is 2wd. Our host was very responsive.
Our trip to Hawaii was a breeze with Ken's Kia Sportage! Pickup and drop off from the airport was extremely easy. Ken was communicative and provided clear and helpful instructions. Everything was as promised and then some! Would definitely rent with Ken again when we return!
Car was very clean and in great condition. Owner was very friendly. Great communication. Would highly recommend.
Sarah’s car was easy to pick up! It was very clean and nice and made our trip so great!
This was our first time with Turo and Cielo was such a great host for us newbies! Always quick to respond (even on Christmas😅) and was incredibly helpful and easy to work with. Car was perfect for our Hawaii adventures. Thank you!
Great experience. It was my first time using Turo. This host was really nice and helpful, and the car is great, an hybrid car we had to fill only once after driving 600 miles! I would strongly recommend this one!
Shana is wonderful to work with and the car is extremely fuel efficient and comfortable. It was a wonderful trip and highly recommend it!
Everything worked great…the car was there for us and drove easily all over the island. Cielo responded quickly to our requests and all went well.
Nellie is a great host. She gives precise directions on picking up the car and returning it. She is also very friendly and was easy to contact and message with.
Great ride! Super clean and convenient pick-up and drop-off at LIH airport. Zippy car and lots of space for a compact vehicle.
Super easy pick up and drop off. This car was amazing on gas and got us everywhere without any issues. Definitely would recommend to others.
Cecilia made the check in process seamless, car was very easy to find. Car drove great and mileage was amazing - no complaints at all!
Great contact and support if it was needed. Car is in good condition. We will highly recommend to our friends for sure
Tj was great, we really enjoyed driving his car, he also extended my trip without asking any questions.
Great car to drive around kauai! Me and my boyfriend were having a blast every drive, we had the perfect amount of space
This is a perfect car for Kauai. Small enough to get around with good gas mileage and fun to ride. Shana delivered it to the airport and we dropped it off there. We could store our beach gear in the back and plug into the sound and navigation systems with our iPhones. Great experience.
Shana was a great host! Her communication was timely and provided all the info we needed. The car was also super clean and in great condition. I was pleasantly surprised by the great mileage it got.
Amazing first experience through Turo. Tamara is an amazing host; she had goodies for us when we landed which is very unexpected and great. Loved the car.
Great experience! I was a little nervous about using Turo for the first time, but Jabrielle communicated clearly every step of the way and made the process so easy! Very kind and helpful, and the car was great- just what we needed for this trip! Would highly recommend this Turo host! Mahalo!
Thank you Abraham. We appreciated the use of your clean, well running car and your timely pickup and drop off.
Easy to get the car and return it. Clean car drives well. It would have been good to have the pull over cover for the trunk so we can hide our luggage bags etc under otherwise we enjoy the experience.
Very easy checkin/checkout and car was clean and easy to drive. Thanks to Shana for the great communication and recommendations list!
