Take a deep breath and relax into your island life. Honolulu is a city with plenty to do, but nobody is out to do it in a hurry.
So take your time reveling in the natural beauty, perfect beaches, fresh seafood, and tons of outdoor activities. When you’re over the crowds, book a Honolulu car rental alternative to head out of the city and find a quieter side of Oahu.
Nobody goes to Hawaii to hang around inside all day, and the best activities in Honolulu take you out into the abundance of natural beauty. Whether you’re looking for an active challenge or serious lounge session, Honolulu is your paradise.
The best views of Waikiki, Honolulu, and all of Oahu are all yours when you do the 1.6 mile climb to the top of this dormant volcano. Ambitious hikers might even catch a glorious sunrise.
This bustling Honolulu area is famous for a reason: beautiful beachfront, resorts, hula shows, surf lessons, ABC stores, fireworks — everything a tourist could ask for in one fell swoop.
For the ultimate snorkel experience, steer your Honolulu car rental alternative to the south end of the city, and swim with a wild flurry of tropical fish and sea turtles.
Skip the rental car counter
The best way to see all of the sides of Oahu is to book a Honolulu car rental alternative on Turo, so you can beat traffic early, and explore the mountains and beaches at your own speed.
In the winter, famous surfers compete here and it’s a show you won’t soon forget. In the summer, the calm waters are perfect for swimmers who want to take it easy.
About a 40 minute drive north in your Honolulu car rental alternative will take you to Kaneohe with two great waterfall hikes, a farm with fresh poi, and the serene Valley of the Temples.
Head out in your Honolulu car rental alternative on this hour-long drive to hike Oahu’s oldest volcano, check out the island’s rugged, wind-swept beach, and maybe even spot an endangered monk seal.
Sam made our car rental process super easy! His car was exceptionally clean and a great ride. He went the extra step and provided us with hand sanitizer for our rental period. He was also punctual and prepared and easy to get ahold of. Sam made our vacation and car rental experience awesome. Highest recommendations possible for Sam and his TLX!
Absolutely the best rental. Dion goes above snd beyond. There were no rental cars available and touro showed up in an ad. Best ad ever. Thank you thank you we had the best time. Plus ur renting from an active military guy who is the nicest down to earth you could find. 🙏🙏🙏
In my opinion, this is the best deal on the island by far if you want to ride in style. The Miami blue, engine tune, and beautiful design can’t be missed. I’ve rented plenty of sports cars while on vacation and this is the best one yet! Ryan was a great host. There was no question or concern that wasn’t answered. I told him I was planning to take a trip around the island and he was kind enough to recommend a bunch of cool spots to check out. Was very responsive to everything. The car has perfect weight distribution, which is definitely noticeable when you drive. It makes a safer option for a sports car. You cannot go wrong with Porsche. I would highly recommend. You won’t regret it!
All I have to say is wow. Craig has literally the best rentals in town. Nobody can compete. And they really take care of their people. I got first class service and big smiles. 10/10 would suggest him for all your Oahu trips. Don’t even short yourself. A few more bucks gets you in the life of luxury and while on your vacation there really isn’t any other way to do it.
Smooth car rental. Car was great and driving with the top down through Oahu was the best thing ever! Would definitely recommend and will be booking with Jayson next time I’m in Oahu.
Awesome! Made our trip to Honolulu so much better being able to rent from Adam for a fraction of what the car rental companies wanted to charge us. Plus, he dropped the car off where we were staying then even dropped us off at the airport when we returned the car as we were leaving!
Wonderful experience and thank you for answering all my silly questions so promptly. I would absolutely use them again for a car rental. They made the process so easy and I’m grateful!
Hands down the best rental experience! Not only was Craig clear and concise with his communication but he also had the best prices in town. The Corvette was clean, mean and drove like a dream! It was the perfect way to end our trip in Honolulu! Shout out to Craig and John for being amazing people!
If you need to rent a car in Oahu and the city of Honolulu, these guys are the host you want to work with! Very hospitable, easy to communicate with, and has simple rules to ensure the mustang runs great. My wife and I had a blast with this convertible especially when cruising down coastal roads. Will definitely rent from them again when we come back to visit the Aloha state!
Great car! Great host. Super responsive and very chill. We had a great time. It was the perfect way to rent a cheap car for a few days of our trip.
Ai was easy to communicate with and a joy to rent a car from! Her instructions were clear and concise. Highly recommend!
I had THE best experience driving this car throughout Hawaii, let alone working with Craig! Craig is a stand up gentleman. He is professional, personable & caring. I could write pages to describe how happy I am, but I’ll leave it at this ... There’s no better place to rent a car.
John was a pleasure to work with and the Porsche was beautiful!! John dropped off the car at our hotel at the agreed upon time. He was super friendly and very flexible regarding the return time and location. He is super easy and very chill. The car was gorgeous. It was well maintained, clean, and drove like a dream. The top is easy to operate and everything inside works like new. The worst part of the trip was giving it back to John!! I highly recommend renting this car. It was a blast and anytime I'm back in Honolulu I will be calling John to rent his Porsche.
Good value for Oahu, the car is fairly new and drives great. Compact size is helpful for parking in Honolulu. Matt was a friendly, communicative and flexible host. My best experience renting a car in Oahu!
Edward was very helpful, honest & would recommend to anyone that is looking for a car rental during vacation !
I am not sure where to start with this. Honestly one of the best customer service experiences I have ever had. We showed up a little disorganised to our trip in honolulu and our plans changed last minute. Christine and Shamshul were understanding and bent over backwards to accomodate us. Moreover car was in great condition and clean. They are friendly, cool and interesting people to talk to and gave us great recommendations for hawaii as well. You will never get an experience like that from large car rental companies. It is people like Shamshul and Christine that make platforms like Turo work. Highly recommend and will use again!
Danielle was super flexible and chill. Made pick up and return very easy and convenient! The car was just what we needed to get out of Waikiki for a couple days. Highly recommend if you’re looking to rent a car and under the age of 25! Much more affordable than any other car rental companies in the area.
Sun and Chris were both awesome to deal with! The car was fantastic and we clocked about 1100 miles in 10 days! Would highly recommend you rent this car for your vacation! My mom loved driving with the top down and you just have to be strategic with the occasional rain! Very easy to drive , great communication, and will rent again when we visit next year! Mahalo Sun and Chris!
The car was very nice, full size luxury car and less expensive than a compact through rental company. Al had offers for more money to rent it out from under me but he kept his word and rented it to me. Great renter!!
Simple and easy check in and check out - fast response when I had questions. Will def rent again! Also best price for value in honolulu. Great on gas too!
I would not recommend renting an a electric car for a vacation unless you have had previous experience with them prior to the trip. Mihail was great to work with! I would recommend doing business with him.
This is an amazing vehicle for touring Oahu. And Jon is one of the best hosts out there. Any question I had he was there to help. I would suggest this rental to all my friends and family who come to visit this sacred place. Live in luxury and ride with Jon’s Tesla 1000%!
Mihail was great to work with. We had been desperately looking for a rental during spring break for 3 days and we were ready to give up when Mihail’s Jetta popped up. I messaged him at 7 and he had the car to us by 10pm! He was on time, friendly and communication was great. We’d rent from him specifically the next time we are in Waikiki. Thanks for saving our vacation, Mihail!
The Camaro was great! Really enjoyed renting from Zhuying. Great communication and extremely flexible. Made my trip to Honolulu an even better experience. I highly recommend using their vehicle!
Car was clean and in good shape. Easy to work with and communicated well. Would use for car rental again.
The Porsche was really fun to drive, it makes you feel like a rock star, and it’s a stick shift too! My only regret is that I didn’t rent it for my entire trip. If you’re thinking about it, and you like cars, just go for it and rent it. You’ll be glad you did. Also Ray is great to work with. I’ll go to him for my next stick shift car rental next time I’m in town.
Same day last minute booking due to rental cars having no availability and Jonathan has very responsive. First time using Turo and renting a Tesla. Enjoyed our experience.
Miles was very good at communicating and was such a pleasure being able to rent a car outside an expensive car rental. All around a great experience.
Amazing car! And a modest price compared to other car rentals on Oahu! Travel in style!
Great, solid car if you want something a step above a rental agency car. Safety features and car play are nice.
Renting this mustang from Jonathan was an absolute pleasure, and what a great value for the price. Seats also come equipped with this wet jet covering which is extremely convenient. Had no problems picking up and dropping off. If you are not accustomed to low riding cars be careful as Hawaii has a lot of bumps, potholes, etc. Also the middle compartment locks when u lock the car so we used that to store our valuables most of the time, not sure if this is good advice (be extremely careful as break ins and broken windows are common) but it worked for us.
Chris was awesome and super chill! Very friendly and was easy to work with and coordinate drop offs and pick ups. His car was super clean when we got it and smelled like a rental. Had surf straps and was more than happy to help with any needs we had. Highly recommend.
It a great car that helped make a great trip. While we didn’t need any extra support, Siraj was helpful in providing resources to make sure we had a smooth experience with his car. Siraj was also flexibility in providing modified pickup and drop-off times to help accommodate our shifting flight schedule that experienced delays. We’d love to rent with Siraj again on our next trip to Oahu.
If I could give Maithy 10 stars I would. It’s very obvious she’s experienced. We booked our trip with Maithy after extending our vacation last minute and the car was ready within 6 hours and was EXTREMELY clean. I was surprised it just came from a trip because it was so clean. The car ran very smooth, she had chargers, hand sanitizer, and again i can’t express how clean her car was. We ended up having to change our drop off location and Maithy was able to pick up the car at the airport. She sets a really high standard in my book - i will definitely work with her the next time I’m back in Oahu.
Ai was an amazing host. I’m a first time Turo user and I was amazed at how simple the process is. Ai Responded to my questions very quickly, was great with communication, and provided simple and straight forward pick up and drop off instructions. The car was clean and hand sanitizer was also provided! There are optional extras like hammocks, small bbq, wand others but we didn’t opt for those and just needed transportation to the North Shore. If you’re expecting to drive a brand new car, go to a rental car company. If you’re looking to find an easy and affordable alternative, look no further. The Suzuki SX4 was a smooth driving car with A/C and it blends in seamlessly with the locals. All in all, I highly recommend renting from Ai and I will definitely book again when we visit Waikiki next time.
Cameron's car was great and he was very accommodating! Thanks for a great rental!
SUN. Was a great host. Responded Quickly. Very easy to work with. I’d put 10 stars if I could ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️. For the car it was excellent. Clean when I picked it up. And the car ran great the whole time. It rained for a lot of our trip and handled great on the slick roads. For the sunny days, ohhh man was a convertible absolutely awesome to have. The sun shining down and the breeze coming off the ocean it was an experience within itself. MUST HAVE. If I make it back I would most definitely rent from Sun again. Sun I appreciate all your hospitality. As the locals say, Mahalo🤙🏻
Highly recommended. Ideal car for me and fun to drive. Parking, smarking, easy as can be..I will certainly rent from Naomi again in the near future and you should too!
Charles was very communicative and the car was in great shape. He was so accommodating when my trip got cut short. I would absolutely rent from him again.
Great customer service and great communication. Really made our trip to Oahu very memorable. Can not wait to plan a vacation again and rent from Aloha Breeze Services again. Mahalo for everything 🌺🏝🌊
A fantastic rental experience- at drop off, Jeremy went through the car in detail to make sure we were comfortable using it. Communication was accurate and we were never left with questions. Thank you!
Jason is the best!! So responsive to any issues or questions you may have. Extremely accommodating and hospitable which made this trip such a breeze! Car was super clean, had hand sanitizer and sanitizing wipes ready, and also included a windshield visor to keep the car nice and shady from Hawaii’s strong rays. Highly recommend booking from Jason!!! Would give 20+ stars if I could!
I would rent again! Mohammed was prompt in his replies, and helpful in arranging for drop off and pick up. The car was great, with no issues. It was comfortable for 4 adults. I recommend taking pictures of the car before and after rental, as there was some debate as to condition. It appears to have been resolved easily though.
Car was in great condition, Anthony was very open with communication and let us know ahead of time of anything or any updates that we should know about. We noticed on our last day that our tire pressure was low, we went and put in air while we filled up gas before returning the vehicle. Car still had the low tire pressure light on and we let Anthony know ahead of time about the issue, returned the car ahead of time so we didn’t miss our flight and also gave Anthony the common courtesy he gave us about any issues that arises. Would highly recommend and will use Anthony again. Heard from other family members of the rental shortage on the island and also the pricing of rentals on the island being crazy expensive. Glad we were able to use Anthony’s services.
Maithy was great to work with. Her car was perfect for our trip! Clean, fuel efficient, and she was wonderful. Would rent from her again!!
This was our first experience with Turo. We needed a car last minute and Jordan came through for us! Jordan was really flexible and so kind on the phone. He was great to work with on this rental. He was located close by, which was convenient. We felt like the only room for improvement, was that the car could have detailed on the interior prior to picking up. We are so grateful overall and would use Jordan and Turo again.
Tiffany was a fantastic host. We had a great time. The car was in great shape and she made everything so easy for us. I highly recommend Tiffany if you are looking a for a great rental car.
Stanley was absolutely the best! Don’t even hesitate to book his car. He was accomodating in every way and we had such a easy trip thanks to him. He even talked his way out of an airport ticket for us. Amazing!
Bryan was fantastic from start to finish and went above and beyond and made everything smooth. Very communicative and made pick up and returning the car a breeze. This was our first Turo rental and will for sure be using again in the future. I would recommend him to everyone for sure.
Great car and owner. This was my first ride on Turo and in a Tesla. The process was great. I highly recommend renting this vehicle! He went above and beyond on helping with a trip plan and the features of the vehicle. If I am back on the island I will be looking for this ride again!
Sheldon was great and the car was kept extremely well! Definitely recommend his rental and will be booking again on future visits!
Zhijun was a great host. Vehicle was provided with full battery life, enough to easily make it around the Oahu in a day. Car was fairly clean, but not spotless. Was a good vehicle to make the trip around the island. Pick up and drop off locations ended up being slightly different from one another but we’re close. Overall was a great experience renting from Zhijun.
Mike was so awesome and the car was perfect. This was my first time renting a car on Turo and I couldn’t be more pleased with how well it turned out. I selected the drop off option and cleaning to make the trip even more hassle free and Mike arrived exactly on time to pick us up and take us to the car. Once we got to the car Mike took pictures of the entire vehicle and showed me how to use the convertible top and checked my ID and then we were off, top down with the warm Hawaiian air flying through our hair. The Bluetooth was easy to connect (you do need to be parked upon first connection so don’t panic if your passenger can’t connect while your driving). We drove all over the island and it was smooth sailing in high style. When it was time to return we were running 20 minutes late and Mike was awesome about it. We met him at the drop-off location and then he gave us a ride back to our hotel. He was such a wonderful host and we really enjoyed chatting with him on the way back to the hotel. I felt very lucky to have such a great host and such a perfect car for getting around the island. Thanks Mike, we will for sure rent from Mike any time we are on the island ☺️
Very clean, reliable and fun car to explore Honolulu! Charles always responded quick to my messages and was very helpful throughout my trip! I will definitely rent his cars again when on the island.
Super easy to pick up/drop off compared to long lines at Hertz. Great and quick communication with all my questions/ concerns. Perf for 2-3 ppl, as it is a small car but blends in with local cars forsure !
Ray was extremely easy to work with. He had a nice car that was fun to drive. There were heavy rains one day of my trip and car got a little dirty. When I asked him where on island I could get it washed he told me rain happens and he would take care of it. I share this to point out how considerate and easy going he was. The car drove very well. Easy to put top up and down. We were on our honeymoon and enjoyed going to dinner in a fun exciting car. Drove around Island one day w top down. Being absolute tourists!! Radio stations on island were splotchy at best and no aux cord hookup in car so bring some cds if you like music. I would absolutely book with Ray again. Mahalo
Sam’s car was immaculately clean and a pleasure to drive. Sam was easy to work with and was right on time for pickup and drop off. It was a perfect rental experience. Highly recommended.
This was our first time renting a car from Turo and Ai made the process super easy. He was even able to pick us up from the airport which made it even easier for us to get our vacation started right away! Definitely recommend his car and would rent it again if we’re ever back. 🙂
First time user and the car was super clean. Communication was great as well, highly suggest renting cars from them!
The owner, Saul, was really helpful and approachable during this rental. The car is in an amazing condition and is super clean and comfortable. I really enjoyed driving this car! It drives like brand new!
Renting from Steve and Zhuying Dai was such an easy process. The car was clean, dependable, problem free, and available promptly upon the time for which it was scheduled. I encourage anyone who’s looking for dependable island rental to consider Steve and Zhuying’s Turo rentals; such a great choice!
Rene is a great host. Communication with him was so easy. He was helpful and friendly. His car worked great; perfect for a beach day. If back in Honolulu, I would definitely try to get this car again for longer!
Miles made pick up and drop off extremely easy. The car is ideal for the island. The experience we had driving it wouldn’t be the same in any other car. I highly recommend renting from Miles
Great service! Our professional expert helped us turn around our experience in Oahu when we couldn't find a car to rent. We went from "total plan failure" to an "amazing tropical vacation" that allowed us to tour a huge portion of the island. Ms. Jojo, made us feel comfortable and that's priceless.
Loved the service they provided. If I need another rental I would definitely rent from Edward again. He was very accommodating. Car looked great inside and out.
Beautiful car! So much fun to drive. Zhuying was a pleasure to rent from! My wife and I will definitely be coming back and getting our rental through them!
This car will take you everywhere you need to go and in style! This car is great on gas which is exactly what you want for exploring the island, it’s got tons of space and is really nice to drive. David was an awesome host, super friendly and had great recommendations for stuff to do. He took care of us the whole trip and was very accommodating when our flights got changed. Definitely renting from him again in the future!
I think this was the easiest and smoothest rental I’ve done on Turo. He had the car cleaned and gassed up when I picked it up. He had very precise instructions. He was also very professional.
They were amazing!!! The car was spotless when we received it and they were very punctual. They answered any questions we had immediately which made the whole process so much smoother. They were extremely accommodating and super friendly. would 100% recommend to anyone who wants a headache-free, smooth rental car process! he went above and beyond any expectations!
Mihail was extremely helpful and this car was incredible. 😍 BEST DEAL! 💯 We’ll be back!!!
Sara made the rental process so easy. The car was right where she said and ready to go. It was very helpful to have it in a central parking lot, especially with returning it at night. I would definitely rent from Sara again. Thank you!
Car was brought and picked up on time. My first time in Hawaii and it has been a great rental experience. Love the color of car by the way.
Jordan was great to rent from. Just moved here and I saved money by renting from Turo (during spring break here in HI). Needed a car while we're still looking to purchase one. Was able to take my kids to their Saturday dance class and grocery shopping for our new home. I'll be sure to suggest Jordan's rentals to my visiting family and friends.
Jazmine was very helpful and was there to talk me through the rental process and the details of the car at pickup and return. She was very easy to work with and the car was delivered to me in pristine condition. I highly recommend this for a beautiful drive around the island!
This is by far the best way to see Oahu. The car is amazing and the 2 guys who I worked with were awesome too. Super friendly! Do yourself a favor and rent this car!
Jeffery was amazingly friendly, helpful, engaging, and overall a super cool gentleman!! He made our trip and time smooth sailing with his dependable rentals. He gave us great advice and I highly recommend this host! Aloha and mahalo, til next time!
Rented for a day was awesome !!! Dragon was very nice didn’t mind me using the fuel but I put in fuel for whoever we rents it If this your fist time with Turo. Try Dragans cars !!!
Had an amazing experience in Honolulu with this car, took it for a weekend and it was just enough. Jeffery was very flexible even though we had some difficulties giving it back on time. Replied to us quickly whenever we had a question. Would highly recommend. Thanks Jeffery!
Ray was great. the car was ready, on time and fun to drive. He even gave us a ride back into town when the rental was over. Couldn’t ask for a better first time Turo experience.
10/10. Jayson was amazing! It’s my first time using Turo, so I didn’t know what to expect, but Jaysons service made me like using the app vs other car rental companies. Jayson picked my partner and I at the airport and he made sure everything was working in the car before he handed it off to me(brakes, roof, signals,bluetooth, etc). Since it’s our first time in Oahu, Jayson shared a loooong list of hikes, lookouts, bars and restaurants to visit! His recommendations were on point - felt like a local:) Also, I had a few questions here and there and he never missed to answer the phone. Overall, Jayson will take care of you!
Matt knows what he’s doing in Turo. Great host, responded quickly for our night before car rental. The ‘stang is kept in great shape and is a blast to drive. Would very much recommend renting any car from Matt.
I was very satisfied with this car rental - they offer airport curbside delivery (you need to take a shuttle to the regular airport car rental agencies otherwise and it would be inconvenient to have to take ALL your luggage on and off the shuttles), affordable rate, and a clean fuel-efficient car. At the end of the trip, I was dropped off at the airport departure terminal - the pick up and drop off made my trip so easy! If you are in Honolulu, I definitely recommend renting a car from Ally. Thank you for all your help!
EXCELLENT first time Turo experience! Robert was so easy to work with — especially when we landed earlier than expected and he rushed right over to the airport to deliver the car curbside! By comparison, my Dad pre-booked through a regular car rental...waited an hour and a half for an available car! Robert’s vehicle was clean and in perfect condition. Beach equipment was top notch as well! Even Tommy Bahama chairs with insulated pockets. Lol Drop off was easy as well, just parked on the curb at Departures at the Airport and Robert met us there! Best experience! I will definitely go with Turo exclusively and will rent from Robert again our next time on O’ahu. Mahalo, Robert for your Aloha!
Our experience with Luciano was great. We had a leak in the tire during the trip and Luciano met us within an hour and fixed it the pick up and delivery went very well. It’s an easy way to rent a car. We will rent from Luciano next year. We highly recommend him.
Short and sweet, this 10-mile highway twists north east from Honolulu through the lush Koʻolau mountains, offering dramatic views of the city and the hilly jungle, until the chill beach town of Kailua.
Start this drive from Kaneohe and take your Honolulu car rental alternative along this windward highway for a more rural side of Oahu with small farms, quiet beaches, and the shoot location for Jurassic Park.
Drive along the coast of the North Shore to see the beaches where pro surfers meet giant waves, and then take your Honolulu car rental alternative west to the wild, sacred, lava shoreline of Kaʻena Point.
