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.
Adam and Sherrie were wonderful to work with! They went the extra mile for us. We recommend them to anyone who is looking for a car rental in Honolulu. A+
Maithy was a great host with a great car! Easily one of the most stylish rental cars i seen on the island.
Antony is truly the best. Definitely recommend getting a car rental through him. He always checked on us on how was the car and also if we needed help/recommendations. Overall 10/10. Thank you Anthony for making our trip great.
Such a great experience! I know that rental cars on the island are scarce right now but Christopher was very accommodating. Being able to drop off and pick up the car in an area close to where I was staying was very convenient. His car was clean and reliable - perfect for cruising the island. Highly recommend!
We had such a great experience with Luis and his Jetta! Luis was totally accommodating with our schedule and made everything effortless and convenient. The car was spotless and new. I really appreciated that Luis did not back out at the last moment as others did, in order to make more money since rental cars are in short supply. Thank you Luis, for your integrity and professionalism. I hope we can rent from you again!
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!
He is amazing! He was extremely nice and helpful, he was genuine and just down to earth! Made this trip ten times better, if you are looking for a short car rental he is your man! Mahalo :)
This is an amazing car rental for the price. Definitely a gas saver. Easy to clean. Easy to pick up and drop off.
Adriano is awesome - super responsive, flexible, and even dropped us off at the airport! Would recommend to anyone coming to Honolulu for a great car and greater experience all spring. We will use Turo next time and rent a car from him again!
This is the second time I've used Turo and I loved it. So easy, and responsive hosts make this car rental service stress free.
Devin is great will work with you on everything, the car is brand new and reliable! Will definitely recommend versus car rental agencies in the island.
Kevin was extremely helpful and communicative through out the whole trip. I will look for Kevin again when I decide to rent a car 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!
Hoping next time the brakes are checked prior to car rental period as it was difficult on the ears for a whole week. Car was great. Thank you will use again
Maithy’s Prius was awesome. Great on gas mileage and does not stand out as a rental car. Her extras included a sun shield for the front windshield, a hands free cell phone holder along with all the charging cords. I have no hesitation in getting this car again on my next trip to Honolulu.
Great host and Great reliable rental car. Had an amazing trip in Honolulu and was able to visit many places and had no issues with the car. Thank you Xiuxiu!
Jazmine was awesome. Super easy to communicate with and easy drop off/pick up process. Loved her car and recommend anyone traveling to HNL to reach out to her for car rental.
Great car. Luiz was very helpful and nice would definitely rent a car from him again.
This was 100% better than any commercial car rental agency! Adam was so easy to work with and the car was clean and super fun to drive! Thank you - we will be back!
This was the best car rental experience I ever had! My boyfriend and I are new to Turo so we did not know what to expect, but JP made the experience so so easy!! Picking up the car at the terminal as self check in was such a breeze and JP was in communication the entire time via phone. Whenever I had questions, he was there to message me back immediately (via text and the turo app). JP is so kind and understanding, so I felt very comfortable messaging him. JP’s car was so comfortable, clean and a smooth ride (not bumpy). We truly felt like our own! We really got a bang for our buck! I would 100% recommend JP to friends that are going to Hawaii because he is reliable, car was comfortable & clean, and just the easiest experience (NO stress whatsoever). Thanks JP for an amazing car rental experience on the beautiful island!! We both are so grateful for you being so kind!!
The car rental was really great value! Jia was very timely in delivering the vehicle and picking it up. The car could have been cleaner -- but you get what you pay for in a Toyata Yaris 2011!
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. 🙏🙏🙏
The host was the best! I forgot my wallet in the car and he brought it right back! He brought the car to the airport, too so it was easier than the other rent a car!
This car is clean and well maintained by the owner who is a gracious host. Driving manual is always fun for me and this car offers that opportunity with smooth transition into gears and a forgiving clutch. I could not recommend a better host for your car rental!
Everything was easy! Booking, arranging the exchange, car was great, drop off was fantastic as well! The price was the best part! I love that I can find more cost efficient ways to rent a car! The host Enoch was very nice also very helpful and attentive!
Best rental experience ever. Dragan was so helpful and on top of everything. Nicest cars on the island period!
Yongbin was great. Quickly responded. Easy pick up and drop off. The car was perfect. Plenty of room in the trunk. Doesn’t look like a rental car, which is nice in Hawaii with how often cars are broken into. It even has an ECO setting which. I used often, just not going over the mountain. Not enough power. But plenty of power on the flat streets. And it’s compact for easy parallel parking. I would definitely rent from Yongbin again. Thanks for making my trip home easy!
Amy has been absolutely lovely and took great care of us during our booking. When we found out the charging station isn’t working and reached out to Amy at 10:30PM, she was quick to respond and dropped off the chademo charger the very next morning to our hotel. WhT a lifesaver! The Tesla was spotless and super clean when picked up, and she remained in communication with us whenever we needed assistance. I would definitely recommend Amy and Jeremy to any one who’s looking for rental in Hawaii. They will also be my first choice whenever I return to Honolulu.
We thoroughly enjoyed the car! It’s not a late model Mustang you’d get at a high-end rental company, but it sure was fun (and a lot more budget friendly)! It started up every time and got us to where we needed to be. My wife loved having the wind blowing through her hair when we had the top down. Absolutely would transact with Allen on the next trip. Thanks.
Yongbin was very pleasant , I will definitively rent a car from him again ! It was running smoothly and the inside was covered with easy to clean seat covers! Thank you !😄
Edward was very helpful, honest & would recommend to anyone that is looking for a car rental during vacation !
Bryan and Montana were very responsive. The car was new and awesome to drive around. Easy pick up/drop off. Easy and detailed instructions. Would recommend if anyone needs to rent a car.
This car rental experience was awesome - I had zero issues. The check in and check out processes were very smooth and easy. The car included industrial mats for easy cleaning of sand from the floors, an aux cord, and a multiple input charger for phones of all types. Hand sanitizer was included as well, which was very appreciated due to Covid. The car was also incredibly clean at pick-up. All in all, would definitely rent this car again and highly recommend! Thanks so much!
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.
Very nice experience overall. Owner was great and made rental easy and stress free. Would be happy to use his Camry any time I am in Honolulu. Highly recommended
Bryan and Montana were great Host. They made the pick up and drop off of their vehicle so easy and very convenient. The car was extremely clean and not to mention a very nice car. We will definitely be using them again on our next trip to Honolulu.
This car was perfect for our trip. Easy to drive & park. Host was very accommodating, reliable and always quick to respond to messages. Will definitely borrow from him again next time we’re in Honolulu .... Thanks Sam!
Zhuying made my first time experience with Turo a great one. Zhuying was helpful and made herself available to answer any questions I had. Drop off and pick up time was prompt. Car was clean and amazing. It made my first trip to Hawaii a one to remember. I highly recommend Zhuying for your rental car needs.
This rental made an incredible trip that much more incredible! The comfort and class is unmatchable! Cruising the beach front or rolling down the costal highway made it a unforgettable trip for sure! The owners were awesome to deal with when deciding to keep it for more time and worked closely making sure my trip was awesome! Highly recommended!!
Jeffrey was extremely helpful and very accommodating. He was very quick to respond. The rental went smoothly with no hiccups, the car was clean and he even provided us with beach chairs which was very thoughtful. I will definitely keep him in mind for future trips to Oahu!!
We couldn’t have rented from a more friendly person than Xiao. We ended up having a few more days where we needed a car and Xiao was able to make some quick adjustments for us to extend our rental last minute. We were running behind to pick up the car and she was super understanding. She even had chairs and beach mats ready for us to rent for a really fair price. Throughout the week she checked in to see how we were doing and to make sure everything was going smoothly. As for the car itself, it’s not a Tesla but it runs great, gets INCREDIBLE gas mileage (we drove back and forth across the island at least 4-5 times before filling up), is a great size, has plenty of trunk space with the hatchback, AC works great, and on and on. Basically, all of the important things to get you from point A to point B are covered. Now, while it is a clean, comfortable car, it is not a luxury vehicle if that is what you are looking for. It is however an affordable, reliable, comfortable ride hosted by a very attentive, and courteous individual. Thank you Xiao! We would definitely rent from you again.
John’s Porsche was better than expected! It was as clean as it was just driven off the dealer lot. Handles and drives just as expected. John was very friendly and went out of his way to ensure pick up and drop off was convenient for me. He was communicating before and during the trip. The car had absolutely no issues at all. This car is definitely a head-turner. I will 100% rent this again next time im in Oahu and i’ll recommend to all my friends and family.
Philip was a great host! He was easy to communicate with and reach. From the start of the rental to the end, detailed instructions. Easy pick up and drop off. Car was very clean, well kept and maintained and so easy drive. Also very efficient being a hybrid car. I have never driven an electric car before and after driving Philip's car for a couple of days, I decided that my next car will be a hybrid. All in all, I would highly recommend you rent this car. It was the perfect car to drive around Oahu, also a plus is there are plenty of parking spots with charging stations...much cheaper than gas! I cannot say enough great things about this car and its host. Don't think twice! Book now! Will definitely book again when we come back to Oahu. 😄
My girl and i had an amazing time with the car on our trip, not to mention the best trip we've ever had together, and Devin was extremely helpful all the way thru. Would definitely recommend to anyone renting a car from Devin
I had an amazing trip with JP’s car! He made it awesome by going out of his way to help us by recommending some cool things we should see on the island! And was also very flexible when I didn’t have the time to fill gas at the end of the trip, and allowed me to send him the gas money because I was short on time! Highly recommend renting one of JP’s cars, awesome guy, awesome cars, very clean and well maintained, and at a good price! 5/5 service, He is the reason I will continue using Turo after a great first experience!! Mahalo
Romel was a great host. He was very communicative and accommodating throughout the check-in/check-out process and during the entire trip. The car was in great condition and super clean. I'm so glad I rented through Romel and Turo and not through one one of the bigger rental companies. I would absolutely rent through Romel again.
Carrie and her other half were very accommodating when it came to the time we got to Honolulu and the time to drop off the vehicle. Very satisfied with our vehicle and it’s host. Will definitely be renting from her again and referring customers ! Thank you Carrie !
Jason is the definition of ohana! He was so helpful, easy to reach, and made the entire experience as stress-free as possible. He picked my friends and I up from the airport when we arrived, and dropped us off for our departure flight too. He even texted me some recommendations for Honolulu. It was honestly just like renting a car from a friend or family member. What a guy!
Best car ever . Clean, super fresh nice car . Recommend to everyone who’s visiting Honolulu !
Gavin is a great host, he responds very quickly and has an answer to all of your questions. The car was very clean when I picked it up and is an amazing ride it handles very nicely and is quick when you need it to be. I had an excellent trip thanks to him and would recommend this car to everyone who is looking for a good rental.
Great experience. Diana and her husband were great and friendly. They gave us a book with all the amazing places to see. Car was very clean and well maintained. This car made our trip 10 times better, best car for cruising around the island. Would recommend to anyone. Can’t wait to come again next year and rent it again. Mahalo Diana 🤙🏼🌸
Thanh was absolutely excellent. Was there on time and drop off. The car was spotless when he arrived. This is the easiest and best rental. If your in honalulu make sure you rent thru him. Thanks
Matt was prompt and very professional, I definitely recommend renting this spark or any other cars managed by Matt. Very easy to deal with and the car was clean and in tip top shape
I loved the car, Mohammed was great! He walked me through everything I needed to know about the car, he also gave me a ride back to my hotel when I dropped the car off to him. If I'm ever back in Honolulu I would definitely rent with him again.
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.
Such a great car to drive! The car was super clean and spotless when Jazmine delivered to me. And Jazmine is super friendly and nice to work out the drop off/pick up time with me! She even left disinfectant wipes and paper towel in the truck for us. Definitely would like to rent this car again in the future - drive in style in Honolulu!
Easy pick up and drop off. Communication was great. Beats waiting in the HNL rental car lines any day! Will definitely book this car for our future trips.
The best trip ever! Diana wasn’t just great she was amazing! Her car is just perfect... I was able to drive all around the island with no problem and enjoy the feeling to be driving a convertible! And Diana, omg! She was also a tour guide! She even left a book for me so I could get more information about the island. She wrote me about the good stuff and even recommended places to eat! The best host ever! I'd rent her car again and again and I've recommended it to my friends! Thank you Diana for making my visit to Hawaii an amazing memory!
Ray was a great host to rent my first ever Turo car from! I was able to book the car last minute ( 2 hours before I wanted it) and Ray wasted no time confirming it! With the surge in Airport rental car pricing in Hawaii, Ray and Turo was an amazing and affordable alternative. The car itself was clean, ran well, and was a fun car to drive! The hybrid option was great on gas and very cheap to fill back up when I had to return . I will always rent from Ray when I am traveling to Oahu. Thank you!
Tim was a great host and very flexible with his time. He kept us informed and made sure everything was to our expectations. Wouldn't hesitate to rent from Tim on our next trip back to Honolulu. Thanks for your hospitality Tim!
Exceptional experience! The vehicle had a minor issue near the end of the rental period. Joseph was responsive and helpful, he brought his mechanic out with the necessary part and fixed the car ASAP. Importantly, he didn’t make the situation difficult on us for these minor issues that happen with cars. We would definitely rent from him again. Thanks again Joseph 🤙🏾
Michael was super quick with his responses and everything about the rental was very smooth and fantastic. He met us at the terminal and we were able to drop off the car by meeting him at the terminal. It was the best rental experience I ever had. I would definitely recommend renting with Michael again!
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.
Car was clean and in good shape. Easy to work with and communicated well. Would use for car rental again.
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.
Great car, gets you from A to B, and great experience with this car rental overall! This was my second time renting with this host and they went above and beyond to accommodate my schedule, trip extension, etc. I would recommend and rent from them again!
Awesome first TURO experience. David was great! Very thorough but easygoing and totally flexible to meet my needs. The car wasn’t fancy, but it ran well, was clean, and the AC was on point! Great gas mileage - made it around the island of Oahu and then some on half a tank. To top things off, I accidentally left my wallet in the car, and David was kind enough to drive it to me and return it later that day. Don’t know why I’d ever pay to rent a car when using David is an option. Would/will totally recommend him to a friend.
I’m so happy I found Corey at Turo. He was a life saver during my spring break vacation when the regular car rental places jacked up the prices up to $300 per day. I was very satisfied with the mustang convertible. It’s so fun driving around the island in the convertible. I would totally do it again. Thanks Corey!
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.
Great experience with Kevin ! Recommend to book his cars ! We had an awesome trip !
We used Richards car for our honeymoon stay in Waikiki. This an awesome little car that truly is a gas sipper!! We made a few trips to north shore and only had to fill up once for our entire week they’d!! Richard was also amazing at communication and making sure we got the vehicle!! Hands down would rent from him again next year for our anniversary!!
Tiffany was great. I picked up a spotless car! When if I do come back to Honolulu I would definitely contact her again.
Amazing car for our trip - Eddy was so helpful in coordinating dropoff and pickup!! Will rent again
Awesome trip. Car is super fun! Great alternative to the traditional convertibles. Ray was great to work with and super easy. Rent this car.
This rental couldn’t have gone better. Justin was an amazing host! Quick to reply, very helpful, and the car was clean and worked flawlessly. Justin was even flexible with our schedule. Highly recommend! And if we come back, will definitely be trying to rent this again!
Great experience. Al was very responsive! Car ran fine and was a great rental car for Oahu.
Lena was so kind and accommodating. Her car was in beautiful condition and drove so nice. We really enjoyed this rental and would love to rent from Lena again! Thank you!
Our rental experience was seamless and very smooth. The car was perfect for getting around Oahu. Ryan offered recommendations on where to go while visiting! We had a great time. Such a personable experience, especially compared to the large rental groups. Thank you Ryan!! Totally recommend renting from him.
Allen was a responsive host. Car is a bit older, so it encountered some typical wear and tear maintenance issues during my trip, but Allen scheduled a mechanic to deal with the situation quite promptly.
Adriano was an 11/10 rated host, matching the 11/10 Tesla M3. If this car is available, book it asap! The car: My wife and I have M3s at home and felt most comfortable renting one here. It's a new and beautiful blacked-out Tesla Model 3 (Standard Range+ I think?) with a white interior and lightly tinted windows. Was a dream to drive and we felt right at home. If you haven't driven a Tesla before, definitely give Adriano's a try but you'll want to have him walk through it with you since there are some differences from gas cars that you'll want to know about (along with all the adjustments you can make to seats and A/C etc.). The Host: We booked the car fairly last minute but Adriano was incredibly responsive from the moment we booked right until we dropped the car off. My wife and I had some time changes both for pick up and for drop off and Adriano adjusted everything for us with no problem. Because of the time changes, we did the pickup remotely where he could unlock the car for us so that we could get the key card. It was a very smooth hand off. This was our first time using Turo, but if all the hosts and cars are as good as Adriano's, we'll definitely be using it again.
Super fun ride, easy to get around with, park with, and overall great rental. Second time renting this car and I’d rent again!
Heather was the absolute best! Communicated amazingly, had a super clean car and even included the little things to make our trip more enjoyable. Her car was amazing on gas and fit my family comfortably. Heather is an excellent host and I wpuld definitely book with her again in the future! Best Turo experience!
Benjamin was so nice to lend us his car for my trip. He responded fast to our messages and answered all our questions. I will definitely rent from him again. 1000/10 recommend.
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.
