It was our first Turo renting, and one of the best renting experiences we ever have, period. Watch-out the other professional rental companies, turo is coming strong. Joseph is very easy to work with, very accommodating, very informative, great communication, and professional. His car is a new 4x4, spacious, easy to drive around, which makes our trip one of the best we ever have

Very accommodating and polite Jenny is an awesome person with a great car. Her new car is a hybrid so it helps with the Hawaii gas prices. I give my experience a true thumbs up.

This car was wonderful - super clean, easy pick up/drop off at the airport, and the hybrid gives you great mileage (helpful with Hawaii’s more expensive gas prices!). I would definitely book this car again!

Picked up at the airport parking lot. Easier and faster than others in our party left waiting in line at the rental counter. The Jeep was spotless an in like new condition. Much more cargo space than expected, accommodated 4 large bags plus carryons.

Jeff is the man, he made everything painless saved our whole vacation. We made the mistake of not booking a rental when we landed in Kona, we walked to every rental company only to be told no cars. We never heard of Turo till our Uber driver told us about it, thank god! We downloaded the app & in a few minutes we found Jeff & his beautiful brand now Honda, he was very helpful gave us options for pick up even let us pick it up a little early as the car was ready sooner. He also made it so easy to return it! I can’t thank Jeff enough very helpful & polite, next time we come out we’re not bothering with those rude people at the big retail rental companies we’re look for Jeff next year for sure!

This was our first Turo rental. I think this Turo rental exceeded regular car rentals. One can find cars in Turo that are normally not available with rental car companies. Ryan's Jeep was totally clean and he had no restrictions like rental companies have. Ryan was very professional, friendly, courteous, his inventory is totally amazingly clean and all terrain performers. I think other Turo hosts can take Ryan as role model. Kudos Ryan. I'll rent again with you!!

Cadillac SRX 2012

Was a pleasure to rent from Jodie, very reasonably priced car, prompt communications and hassle free drop off & pick up the car at the Kona airport from Jodie's team. I found, Jodie says what she does and does what she says. A bonus being, her company also offer Travel & Activity services, have found Big island can be a rush during peak time so her company can help to make an optimal itinerary by doing all the bookings for us. Even though the SUV has few years on it and one can spot minor cosmetic wear & tear if they really put an attention to the details, I found this SUV to drive like new, felt new and in top condition. Much better priced and even a better vehicle than newer economic cars from Turo or from rental companies. I found this Cadillac SRX to be a comfortable cruiser for my family with 2 kids for long drives. Being this my first ever Turo rental, overall positive experience with Jodie, Cadillac SRX and Turo.

Jeep Renegade 2017

Ryan’s keep renegade was the perfect vehicle for this magical trip. It was able to handle everything we threw at it (within reasonable limits of what the contract allowed, of course). And it was supremely comfortable with excellent side and rear visibility and high ground clearance. It is also equipped with a very good GPS system. In particular, Waipio Valley and Mauna Kea were challenges that it handled splendidly. The low gear and downslope modes are intuitive and allowed us to drive with total confidence on sometimes harrowing roads. For a car of this type, the gas mpg was also quite good. Ryan himself was a wonderful and chill guy, who made us feel totally comfortable and welcome before, during and after the trip. He provided valuable tips about places to visit, and was totally up front and responsive during the trip, and gave us confidence that someone had our backs. We forgot to bring our tripod for astrophotogeaphy on Mauna Kea, and he stepped up with a very good tripod that he sold to us at a very reasonable price. On the last day when we were late for our flight, he even drove us to the airport!! A stand up guy all round and someone you can rent one of his excellent fleet of jeeps from with total confidence.

Nissan Rogue 2016

We booked this 2016 Nissan Rogue, and it was the perfect vehicle for our party of three on 5-day trip. If you're visiting the Big Island and are planning to see as much as possible, then you need a car. The Rogue was easy to drive, park and jump in-and-out on our power sightseeing days. We own the exact same vehicle back at home. The cost to Turo this SUV was more than 50% less than renting a compact car from the cheapest rental car company. It gets great gas mileage! We drove about 550 miles and only had to fill it up twice - that's less than $100 spent on gas. It's a SUV with good leg room and plenty of space in the back for a cooler, backpacks, boogie boards and snorkel gear. The AC and short distance drives were great breaks from the heat/humidity. This Rogue has the interior floor mats, for the sand and mud (if you go hiking) - it helps keep the mess to a minimum. We also added the pre-paid cleaning fee to our rental, which was well worth it. We recommend selecting this vehicle and supporting this host with your reservation. Tips about driving on the island: • Respect the Rogue. It is not a sports car or for off road driving. BUT!! - It will comfortably get you and your passengers to any of the hundreds of tours, beaches, bays, activities, monuments, lookout points, restaurants, gardens, parks, or waterfalls to see/visit. • Respect the locals, and don't drive fast. Be patient. You will end up behind someone driving slow. It happened to us many times, but it was no big deal. We safely got to EVERY spot on our many lists. • Drive the speed limit. It is the "Big" Island, but you can drive across the middle from Kona-to-Hilo (less than 90 miles) in less than 1.5-2 hours. • Wake up early and get out the door. The best of the Big Island is seen during the day. Take it all in. There are interesting things to see and amazing views everywhere. • Pay attention while driving to each destination. Some of the roads are narrow with no guard rails.

Our family vacation on the Big Island of Hawaii was a dream come true. Honestly? One of the best parts of the trip was renting Joe's Audi from Turo. What a great car! Joe left us a guidebook and sent some great recommendations about where to go. Mahalo!

Raina is so nice and accommodating! The Jeep is fantastic and took us everywhere we needed to go on the whole island. The best part is that top back, wind in your hair, and cruising to my next poke or snorkel spot. Such a great deal for this type of car. We’ll be back for sure! Mahalo 🤙🏻

Considering this was my/our first time and experience using Turo, all prior skepticism aside, I am now fully convinced that such a service can work and benefit all parties if done and handled right. I do think that having been in contact with the host (Junior) ahead of time was helpful and also clarified a lot of things. But for those finding themselves on the Big Island with 'big' expectations in hopes of a 'smaller' price tag, using Turo and finding quality vehicles is a breeze and worth the wait when searching. And let's not kid ourselves, for such a nice vehicle, you def won't find a comparable rate at one of the airport car rental companies unless willing to fork over everything shy of an arm and/or leg.

Amazing car. USB charger/aux port to connect my phone for music. Super clean. Great condition. Cold AC, Cruise control even auto adjusts to the person in front of you which helps on those long drives around the island. Pickup was super easy. Car delivered to the airport and left really close. Car was immaculately clean inside and out. still wet from being just washed. Great communication. This is my first time using Turo and I don’t think I’ll ever go back to regular rental car companies again. Jeff did amazing.

He was also very knowledgeable about the island and the Hawaiian culture and could answer all of our questions.

Really enjoyed exploring the Big Island in Anna's brand new Jeep. The pickup and dropoff were effortless. The Jeep was handed to us clean and with beach gears loaded. Anna was very responsive to all my questions and requests throughout the trip and also gave me great tips on where to go. The Jeep drove great with its new A/T tires (not the regular road tires you'll find on the Jeeps from rental companies). We were able to summit Mauna Kea, go down to Waipio Valley and visit green sand beach without any issues (We did ask for Anna's prior permission for driving the 4x4 only roads).

My first time with Turo. While it was a bit more work than the traditional rental car agency, every time I needed help I received it. There's more a feel of we're in this together rather than the corporate us vs them. I made some mistakes which were explained to me and we kept rolling along. So I'll try it again next time I need to rent a car.

Very nice vehicle; basically new. no issues at all. Fuel mileage was good with great performance. The KEA people were nice and accommodating.

Clean & well maintained jeep! Billie was a responsive & friendly host. This was our first time using Turo & she was so patient & informative as we figured out what we needed to do & how to do it for a drop off location that differed from the pick up location. The extra Turo fee was well worth it. We’re SO AMAZED by the curb side service she provided with pick up at ITO baggage claim & drop off at ticketing for our airline at KOA. On another island, we used a major rental car company & had to struggle with bags on & off the shuttle bus along with the waiting for the bus. WORSE: the wait was 1 hour 45 minutes just to get the vehicle. Absurd! Do yourself a favor & get this valet type service with Billie. Take the stress out of your vacation!

Brooklyn’s Jeep was perfect for our island vacay with my husband and our baby boy. It was an extra comfy ride for the three of us and could fit two more comfortably, if needed. The AC was ice cold and we loved having a high clearance vehicle. We even found a couple beaches where you could park on the sand - we wouldn’t have been able to do that in a car. We circled the whole island and felt very safe on all the highways. Brooklyn was super helpful and answer all my questions right away. Would definitely rent the Jeep again when in Kona.
