Akamai Kauai Car Rentals


About Us

Akamai is the Hawaiian word for "smart". Our mission is to provide you with the smartest choice for your car rental here on our beautiful island of Kauai! My wife and I were both school teachers here on Kauai. We have 5 wonderful children! During the pandemic, we started doing research about Turo and fell in love with the idea. Started with my wife's van because her and the youngest 3 boys walked to school every morning. It snowballed from there and now we have a mini fleet and turned it into a family business. Even though our island is small, there are a million things to do and see here. My wife has lived here almost her entire life and I have lived here for over 8 years. Together we have lots of recommendations for the best beaches, places to eat, and local activities . . . just ask!

Through our affiliation with Turo, we're so happy to provide you with the vehicle that lets you see it all!

We have a broad selection of cars, SUVs, full-size vans, and Trucks available to rent. Click here or on the tab at the top of the page to see Our Cars!


Select "add-extras" at check-out on the Turo app and your selections will be waiting for you in your vehicle at check-in!

Not renting a car with us? No problem! Extra items can be rented on their own. Just get in touch by Facebook messenger (link to our page on the blue bar above) or email at akamaicrkauai@gmail.com to make arrangements.

If you are in need of an item you don't see on our lists, contact us and we will do our best to accommodate your request!
