Couldn’t have been any better experience! Katherine’s 4runner was clean and we picked it up just across from the baggage claim. I don’t think I will ever rent a car from a big brand rental agency again, Turo is awesome and so is Katherine😎
Car is clean and contactless way of renting during Covid. RAV4 is older model but still reliable during our 4 days stay in Kauai. Also, the price is great instead of renting a new car from rental companies and it serves the purpose during our Shaka Guide audio tour. I used Uber to pick up and drop off the car , very close to the LIH airport.
Contessa was very friendly and great at communicating throughout the rental process.
Silvin’s Toyota was perfect for our family of five for the week. He provided great communication and made the pickup and return process so easy. So much better than the hassles with traditional rental car companies. Very pleased overall!
Jackson was a great host and very communicative throughout the entire rental process. I wouldn’t hesitate to book with him again!
Lauren was very helpful and easy to communicate with. She was very detailed, making the whole rental process easy. The RAV4 is in excellent condition and drives well. It’s perfect for driving in Kauai. I highly recommend booking with Lauren.
Anthony's Toyota Highlander was the perfect car for our family trip. It was new, clean and had all the conveniences needed to explore the island, including comfort, space for our gear, apple car play, air conditioning and a smooth ride. We are a family of five with three teenagers and found the car to have been spacious enough for our long drives through kauai. On top of that, Anthony went above and beyond to be helpful to us as we were running late to return the car. He was very gracious and patient, as this was our first time renting a car through Turo. His instructions made our pick up and drop off quick and easy. I would recommend him and his SUV highly.
Lauren’s drop off process to start and stop your trip is very well orchestrated and WAY easier than a car rental company. The car was in great condition and overall, it couldn’t have been better.
Brianna and her family were amazing hosts! They were warm, welcoming and very friendly. Great communication, very polite and the pick up/drop off at Lihue airport is convenient for travelers. The car itself is very spacious for passengers and luggage. It runs smoothly and handles the roads of Kauai well. I would highly recommend renting from wonderful local hosts like Brianna and her family!
Lindsay was awesome! Car performed great and being able to pick up at the airport was extremely convenient. Great communication prior and during the trip. Everything went smoothly and the towels to rent was a great benefit as well! Highly recommend Lindsay and her Toyota
I give Bryan a 6 star, one off the scale. Why? Because it was great. First time I used Turo. Some of my former students told me about it. I'm old school so a little wary of internet. Had to have my adopted grandchild help me download my photo so Bryan could meet me at the airport. I usually click on the add or paper clip and download my scanned document/picture. It didn't work. She came home and downloaded picture from my phone to the computer and did it. I was getting worried I would not get the car in time. My wife uses a wheelchair so we wanted a larger car. My granddaughter scolded me because she said its to high for grama to get in, but we needed a bigger car and trunk. Finally loaded reservation and Bryan got back to me right away with phone number and email. We set up trip and he met us at Lihue airport with the car right at baggage claim. Car was great, like new. Next morning we checked all fluids of engine when it was cold and all good. Bryan had a three ring folder of all the places to see with comments and a travel book about Kauai. Car and trip great. To surprise Bryan we found a car wash in Kapaa and a vacuum cleaner at a gas station,. He was surprised. If you don't rent from Bryan as we say in Hawaii "U lose money" meaning you MISS OUT! Mahalo Bryan. You da man!
Excellent car and service from the car owner. Car is clean and odorless. Car drives great and the engine is good for getting around the island (many hills/mountains). The car owner/renter was very professional and always available for any questions or help. Would recommend to anyone visiting Kaua’i!
Kelly was great to work with and very accommodating. Her car was great to explore all that Kauai has to offer. Would definitely rent from her again!
Wow! An amazing rental! A decent price compared to brand new vehicles w rental agencies. Super convenient pick up/drop off. Sparkling new car. So thankful for Hawaiians using Turo!
Nathaniel was awesome — he was really responsive, and his Toyota 4Runner was well taken care of and the perfect vehicle to see Kauai with.
Bryan was so great to rent from! He went above and beyond with being helpful with recommendations for our time in Kauai and making it easy for us to get the car at the airport. The car was clean and in perfect condition. Such a good car for exploring Kauai for my family. The car seat for my four year old was installed and ready to go, which was a huge help!
Pick up and drop off was easy better than waiting in line with major rental company but do plan extra time to clean the truck before returning. Easy communication with the owner. Enjoyed driving the 4runner around the island.
This was the perfect vehicle for our trip to Kauai and Lauren made every step of our first Turo rental easy. The car was comfortable for my husband and I and our adult son and his friend and we were glad to not worry about occasional potholes. She went above and beyond to help us navigate the airport and offered to give us suggestions for activities, too. We will definitely do this again!
AWESOME! This was my first time hauling Turo and Jeremiah made things sooooo easy! The whole process was GREAT! He is super nice and explained things so well, which made everything super easy. The car was AMAZING! The interior and exterior were in perfect condition and the car is awesome to drive! If you’re in Kauai I highly recommend renting this car with Jeremiah, you will not regret your decision! Next time I am here I will certainly be renting this car again!
Great communication. Awesome truck! Easy to get around the island and came with CarPlay for easy navigation and sweet driving tunes
Will definitely rent from Chris again! Great communication and even offered awesome tips for local places to eat and visit. The car was in extremely clean condition and very well taken care of….perfect for cruising around the island. Thanks for making this part of the trip so easy!
Kept his commitment through out this crazy COVID time and crazy rental car prices. Pick-up and drop were smooth. Very responsive! Thank you for making our transportation care free!
Andre was great to rent from, a couple minor issues with the car but he responded quickly and super helpful! Would rent from him again!
Lauren was amazing start to finish of our renting here awesome, clean, fully fueled vehicle. My husband and I got to see the entire island and the truck didn’t not drink a lot of gas during our adventures. This was our first visit to the island and Lauren even answered questions for us that didn’t pertain to the rental which was very sweet of her. We would rent from her again. Aloha
Ashley’s Toyota 4Runner was super clean. She had great communications before I got to the vehicle and she went above and beyond. I would definitely rent from her again. I would recommend her to my family and friends!! 👍🏾👍🏾
Autumn was kind enough to rent her reasonably-priced 4Runner to us recently for a week on Kauai. As we left the terminal at Lihue Airport Autumn was waiting for us in her pristine 4Runner. After welcoming us to her beautiful island, Autumn had us on the road in no time which was helpful as we'd left O'Hare more than 12 hours prior. During our weeklong vacation Autumn's 4Runner more than satisfied my family's transportation needs. At the end of our vacation Autumn very generously offered to take us to Lihue Airport a couple of hours after we'd returned her 4Runner. We took Autumn up on her very generous offer and really enjoyed her company on the drive between her home and the airport. I couldn't think more highly of Autumn. She is a very great credit to TURO and I wouldn't hesitate to rent a vehicle from her in the future.
Got to the island and there were not rental cars available. So decided to download the Turo app and was finding cars suitable for our family for a ridiculous price. I’m talking $500. I was able to find Marie’s highlander and the whole experience was seamless even though I had trouble with picking up and dropping the car off due to limited Uber’s. She didn’t just work with me, she saved me. We were able to enjoy the island with the freedom of a car.
Katherine was great! Car was perfect and the Yeti came in handy! Will rent again!
Chris was great! Communication was really good. Super car to drive! Would rent again!
My experience renting Natalie’s vehicle was great. It was my first TURO rental and it went as smooth as I could have asked. Natalie was responsive and helpful. She even called me to explain where her car was located when we arrived. Would book with her again.
Jenneil was great to work with. We were able to book the car an extra day and were able to see lots of beautiful things in Kauai! The process was simple and easy. I would recommend locating your car wash early as they are limited and some of them close at 6pm. We had located one but didn’t realize the closing time and spent 2 hours driving and cleaning the car. I will definitely use Turo again if I need a rental car.
Spoke and met the hosts, the lovely young couple, during picking up and drop off. Nice and helpful, and very accommodating when we need more time beyond the original booking. They even prepared a gift for us! The SUV is clean. Definitely recommended to anyone who need bigger cars on the Island!
Katrina was awesome! Our family enjoyed the Toyota Highlander. It was clean, a/c work perfect and runs good. Of course car rental is extremely high and cost us for our 12 day rental as much as our mortgage but we were so thankful to get around the entire island during our vacation. We highly recommend.
Joe is absolutely amazing!e I couldn’t imagine having a better person to rent a car from. He was communicative, detailed, and very kind. Furthermore, the price was extremely affordable compared to other rentals; and the car was very nice. If you’re visiting Kauai you should definitely rent from Joe, I know I will be on my future trips.
First time using Turo and Crystal was a great help! The car was great, very smooth ride & was very spacious! Would definitely book again! Thank you Crystal :)
Super organized process and the car is in great shape. It’s a great car for a family vacation; very versatile.
Heather was amazing. Very accommodating and organized. Car was in perfect condition.
Ron’s car is perfect for seeing the island and he is very responsive for any questions you may have !
Great experience. Worked with us to ensure everything went smoothly. Great car for the island. Highly recommend this car!
This host was very responsive, and the vehicle was top notch! Very cool car to drive around the island in.
Excellent vehicle, very clean on pickup. Great way to rent a vehicle. No shuttles or lines to deal with.
Car was parked close outside baggage claim. Clean and filled up had a few snacks which were great after long flight. Easy to drop off. I would do again.
This is a NO BRAINER! Vehicle is immaculate condition, doesn't have a dirty smell, drives brand new, and can fit a THIRD ROW for a family of 6 ( we Vacationed with out our 3 kids, but we know the necessity of having space). The car is included with very robust ALL WEATHER mats that make it perfect for those MUDDY hikes ( you will need it for the Queens bath.....). This was our first trip without our children and this Vehicle provided memories that will last us a life time! Again we THANK YOU for not gauging the price during the car shortage and providing excellent communication about pick up/drop off. We will never forget this vacation, nor this car. Kauai is a beautiful island that is easy to navigate, and this car will get you from Waimea Canyon to Princeville in a heartbeat.
Jason was phenomenal. He was available before, during, and after our trip to make sure everything was going well. He was quick to respond with questions, which was super helpful. The car was pristine and easy to drive. I highly recommend Jason and his car!
My first Turo experience and it was perfect! Thank you to Matthew who communicated with me through the whole process. So easy when picking up car. Got to enjoy our precious days in the island! Highly recommend!
Ailene was a joy to rent from. She made the transaction very smooth. Her vehicle was so great to drive around and explore the island with. Thank you
Ronald made everything really easy and smooth. He was very communicative and the car worked great for our vacation. Thank you again for everything!
Car was clean, easy to find and easy to drive. Coleen and mike were very responsive and easy to communicate with! It got great gas mileage, we were able to explore for 4 days on one tank of gas. Mike and Colleen are very very friendly! They had cleaning supplies in the console and told us where to find a vacuum easily to make prepping for the return a breeze!
Harold was super communicative and kind. He was very helpful with recommendations and truly showed us the Aloha spirit. Would definitely rent from him again
Lauren was a great host, her communication was fast and prompt, clear instructions, friendly, and very professional. It was my first time using Turo and she was exceptional. The car was perfect and gave me no problems on my trip. The Additional Yeti was also perfect for beach trips as it kept all out drinks and fruits cold. Thank you again Lauren.
The car was perfect and everything with Heather went smoothly! Great communication!
Excellent communication with regard to reservation confirm and with pick up and drop off instructions. A nice car and a smooth transaction!
We had an amazing experience on our first trip to Kauai, and a big part of that was thanks to Evan's gracious service and beautiful car. It was nicely kept and the perfect size for our party of five. We drove it from one end of the island to another. Evan is an excellent communicator, responding to our questions almost immediately. Pick up and drop off were simple. I highly recommend renting this car (oh, and reasonably priced as well).
Anthony’s highlander was the perfect size for our group. There were 6 of us and we were all able to comfortably fit our luggage and beach gear. Anthony made picking up the car so easy. He dropped it off at the airport for us with a full tank of gas and in such great shape. The car was very clean. Dropping off the vehicle at the airport was seamless as well. The highlander was so easy to drive and I definitely recommend it! Communicating with Anthony was very easy. Overall a great experience!
