Rental cars are so expensive that tourists in Hawaii are driving moving trucks

Sounds like a joke. But it probably is true.

Brilliant! Whoever came up with this idea was clever indeed. As the article states, when rental cars are going for $249/day, it's a great deal to rent a small moving van for $19.95/day plus $.89/mile.

Anyone use Turo to rent a car?
Right now a 2-week Sept rental (Costco) is running at $1600.

I'm in Honolulu now. I paid around $700 for 7 days for a Nissan Rouge through Enterprise with a USAA discount. Booked a couple of months ago, so it might be more now. Haven't seen any uhaul trucks around so far.

I have had two successful Turo rentals in Hawaii. One trip in Feb 2020, we got a mustang convertible for just my wife and I (highly recommend the convertible). When we took the kids in April 2021, we booked a Ford expedition for the cargo/passenger capacity. Both trips were very easy. The host met us at HNL on arrival and departure so we avoided the usual line at the rental car counter.
I've also used Turo for trips in Florida and California with success. I gladly recommend Turo and would use the service again, but am not tied to it. I would still use traditional car rental companies if the price was better than Turo. Turo has an advantage since you know exactly what vehicle you are getting.
