Better Than a Rental Car!

Whenever we travel, there's always the question of “should we get a rental car?” We used to always rent from the usual airport rental car companies but since COVID happened, many rental car companies reduced their fleet making it more complicated to get a car. We've found Turo to be an excellent alternative to rent a car... actually, it's “way better than a rental car!”

We had a blast driving this 2019 Corvette along the coast of O'ahu! The views, the feel, the look, it made for an epic island day. It rained most of the day so having a fun ride to cruise the coast made the beach withdraws manageable. We stopped at Kualoa Ranch, Oahu ~ where the parts of the Jurassic Park movies were filmed. If you're looking for an ATV or Jeep tour at the ranch, be sure to book it way ahead of time as they are super busy and at a limited capacity due to social distancing requirements.

Before you rent another car from a national chain, check out Turo's website. You might just end up with car way better than you expected!
