10.0 ExcellentMay 1 2021
Pros: I was extremely impressed with the customer service of Megan Long at the Ahua office. She resolved my rental problem by going above and beyond in getting me into a rental car.
10.0 ExcellentApr 29 2021
Cons: Great staff. Got upgraded from a sub-compact to a convertible on my wife’s 50th (without mentioning it). Note: this probably won’t happen to you. That aside, they got us in and out in no time, took COVID protocols seriously. I could not have asked for a better experience.
6.0 GoodApr 23 2021
Cons: Enterprise tried - twice - to charge us for a second driver after assuring us - three times - that there would no charge if the second driver is the renter's spouse and both drivers are on the same insurance policy. Before traveling, we called the rental office to ask if there would be a second-driver charge. We were assured by Megan there would not be. When we picked up the car, Megan assisted us, and assured us once again that there would be no second-driver charge. However, the rental agreement (which we did not review adequately in real time) showed a $435 second-driver charge. We called the rental office to find out what went wrong. Megan was not in, but Jill (the rental-office manager) apologized and assured us that the charge was being removed from our rental agreement. When we returned the car, the final rental agreement/credit card charge once again included the second-driver charge. We complained, and received an adjustment on the spot. But Enterprise's behavior was incompetent at best and blatantly dishonest at worst.
10.0 ExcellentApr 23 2021
Pros: Easy and fastCons: Specify that this IS NOT the Enterprise at the Honolulu airport. I searched for car rental at the airport and this location came up. There’s 2 Enterprises near the airport. One is the official location with a shuttle, this one was off site and required a cab/Uber/Lyft. Was not happy to discover this after a long travel day.
2.0 MediocreApr 5 2021
Pros: NothingCons: Prices ..... Why is the prices SKY ROCKETING SMH IN A PANDEMIC
2.0 MediocreMar 30 2021
Cons: Place was closed.
8.0 ExcellentMar 30 2021
Pros: Loved the car. Easy pick up.
6.0 GoodJan 4 2021
Pros: Pickup counter staff was excellent and efficient.Cons: Counter was closed when returning the car and we were never notified to return to a different location at any point. It made for a VERY frustrating experience.
8.0 ExcellentJan 1 2021
Cons: Crazy pickup line over an hour Car not very clean but happy to get one in covid Price amazing
2.0 MediocreDec 9 2020
Cons: Covid scare mid rental. Unclear what/if covid policies are mid rental if I need to return car.

4.0 OkayMay 5 2021
Cons: The wait for pick up was AWFUL. An hour to get the car. No sense of urgency from staff and they were not apologetic for the long wait. The long wait was not unique to the day I picked up because when I returned the following day to drop off the car the lines were just as long.
6.0 GoodMay 3 2021
Pros: Staff did the best they could in a difficult situation where there were not enough cars. Drop-off was super easy.Cons: Pickup was nightmarish. Waited in line for 1 hour and no car available until 2 hours later. Location is not ideal to say the least.
4.0 OkayMay 1 2021
Pros: Awful. Had to pay extra 400 dollarsCons: Everything
10.0 ExcellentApr 29 2021
Pros: The staff was efficient and professional.
2.0 MediocreApr 23 2021
Cons: I was unable to pick up the car. I was under the impression that it was accessible from the airport. It was not. I had to pay for it and was unable to use it. So, terrible is my answer. Everything could’ve been better. If I had rented a stilts it would’ve been better. If I had rented a Diet Coke it would’ve been better. If I had paid someone to slap me at least it would’ve been some sort of an experience.
2.0 MediocreApr 19 2021
Cons: We searched the airport code and apparently got a car reservation 25 min away. We didn’t know until we landed. The agents were rude and wouldn’t let us switch our pickup location even though it was significantly out of the way and closed before our flight. We had to waste a day of our trip to return the car early and then got charge crazy extra fees. I’ll never rent through Kayak, Priceline, or Thrifty again.
10.0 ExcellentApr 15 2021
Pros: I got the surprise car in the downtown location instead of selecting the airport location by accident. The staff was very friendly and I was out with the car in about 10 minutes. The return was also very easy.Cons: The service is perfect.
10.0 ExcellentApr 14 2021
Cons: Were a little confused on getting to drop off location. Lots of one way streets. You are also not able to speak to anyone on the phone for assistance. Line always busy
10.0 ExcellentApr 13 2021
Pros: Easy to drop off.
10.0 ExcellentApr 10 2021
Pros: Guys at the pick up location were so friendly and kind.

10.0 ExcellentApr 25 2021
Pros: GreatCons: Paid 3 tikes as much as at airport but the ease of picking up and returning was worth it
10.0 ExcellentApr 23 2021
Pros: Excellent customer service! Stephen (sp) was so helpful and friendly. He helped out so much when we picked up and dropped off the car! Great experience!Cons: Didn't realize that the pickup area was not on the airport so we had to walk a mile with our luggage. Maybe you could put on there that it is not on the airport.
2.0 MediocreApr 21 2021
Pros: Drop off was off Airport with no transportCons: Unclear how to pick up vehicle
8.0 ExcellentApr 20 2021
Pros: Our pick-up location was near the airport but not considered on the airport; therefore we were able to get the car for a more reasonable price.
10.0 ExcellentApr 17 2021
Cons: Service was excellent!
2.0 MediocreApr 15 2021
Pros: NothingCons: It was a disaster. The flight was delayed. I called as soon as we landed. The Hertz office was closed. I went to the office as soon as they opened the next day. My car was not available, and no other car was available. I spent half a day searching for another car and finally ended up renting from Enterprise. Of course Kayak was no help. I will never uses Kayak or Hertz again in my travels.
10.0 ExcellentApr 15 2021
Pros: Great customer service!
10.0 ExcellentApr 2 2021
Pros: Staff is really friendly and upgrade our car.Cons: We don't notice that the pick up area is not in the airport, which is different to the arrow sign of Hertz Rental location. So we took uber to the real location where we thought it is far away from airport because the staff in the airport told us need to take ~10 mins by car. however, it only took least than 3 mins, even uber driver is surprised to the distance and asking us why we need to took a uber for this short distance.
4.0 OkayApr 2 2021
Pros: No shuttle, long checking procedureCons: Need to have shuttle, need more orangized
6.0 GoodApr 1 2021
Cons: I should have been notified in advance that my boarding pass and proof of my negative COVID test on paper were required at pickup. In the email I received nothing was mentioned about this and it was a huge obstacle for having a smooth pickup. Most of my stuff was still with my husband and all four of our kids while i had gone by myself to pickup the van. This Hertz is NOT located in the airport but is too close for any of the taxis to want to take me there so I had to walk all the way. They also tried to scam me with not getting rental insurance on the vehicle. I called my husband about as he’s rented cars more than me, and if you currently have auto insurance on a car you own it WILL cover the rental. Very disappointed in the whole pickup situation but other than that the vehicle worked well and was a decent price.

6.0 GoodApr 26 2021
Pros: Checkin and getting the car was fairly easy and quickCons: There wasn’t a shuttle from the airport to this rental location. Having to use an Uber from the airport was expensive. Also the key fob had many issues. May have been the batteries in the key but they tried to teach how to use the key fob when I returned as if I didn’t understand how to drive a keyless/push to start vehicle.
2.0 MediocreApr 20 2021
Cons: Pickup was insanely long. Hot sun and line out the door. Took an hour. Had ordered a small SUV and was given an Impala for same price, which was ridiculous anyway at $150/day.
8.0 ExcellentApr 19 2021
Cons: The vehicle did not have any windshield washer fluid in it and the windshield was really dirty.
4.0 OkayApr 14 2021
Pros: Drop off was easy and the shuttle was convenientCons: Car pickup took over an hour, battery died without anything (ie lights) being left on, ridiculously high prices for the week we visited
2.0 MediocreApr 4 2021
Cons: Drop off was great ... fast, friendly and helpful. Pick up was a mess. Long lines, unorganized, people upset and cutting line, people cutting to front not asked to go back line so then other people decide to cut. Probably 20 or more in line and only 1 to two people checking us in. When I finally made it attendant wasn’t very nice and they didn’t have car I reserved, said it would be a long wait. She said she would give me a higher priced rental for same price..I took it and looked it up later, she had lied...it was a lower priced car. One of the worst customer services experiences I’ve ever had.
2.0 MediocreApr 2 2021
Pros: -Cons: Staff did not fix car problems properly - (car needEd windshield fluid & an oil change but they refused, & just put water instead. Also misleading discussion of pricing. A lot of pressure to upsell me. Staff Refused to adjust the reservation. I will never use dollar or thrifty again.
8.0 ExcellentMar 31 2021
Pros: Great price. Great location.Cons: I found a few fast food trash items left in the car from the previous users. Also, better driving directions to the rental office would have been very helpful. The entrance is located on a separate side street, not the street of the 'address'.
8.0 ExcellentMar 30 2021
Pros: They gave a free AAA car category upgrade.Cons: They had laid off too many clerks, and only one desk clerk had to service over 30 customers - we waited 2.5 hours in line to get a car. She was amazing. Someone needs to tell the company to hire back more desk clerks, the tourism is picking up in Hawaii.
2.0 MediocreMar 30 2021
Cons: Covid restriction wouldnt let me travel even though negative test result. No refund and no reschedule.Thanks for taking my money for no service.Terrible!!!
2.0 MediocreMar 29 2021
Pros: When I was renting the suv online, I specifically asked for 6 people. When I got there, they were giving me an suv for 5 people. I had to pay extra $40/dayCons: I specifically put 6 people for the suv. It would’ve helped if kayak gave me what I asked for on the search. This could avoid confusion and miscommunication

But, the worst part, was that they rewarded me for spending more money - extending my rental - by almost doubling my daily rate. Also, they would not offer a weekly rate, even though I had the car for 8 days, because I initially started renting for only 4 days.
8.8 ExcellentFeb 13 2020
Pros: Helpful, recommended upgrades which we chose to do.Cons: Pick-up wait was over 40 minutes, which happens but other company’s lines shifted faster or had less people. But grateful for the service, thank you!
4.4 OkayJan 29 2020
Pros: Easy drop offCons: Really aggressive upsell attempts at pickup for better model, insurance, gas. Car was a worn out Kia Optima which felt like a big step down from the Camry pictured when I booked the car. I got the strong impression the agent gave us the worst car he had because we booked through Kayak and refused all the upsells
9.2 ExcellentDec 16 2019
Pros: Staff helpful in explaining billing, fuel cost options, insurance concerns
2.0 MediocreNov 30 2019
Pros: Nothing
10.0 ExcellentNov 29 2019
Pros: very easyCons: Not much
5.6 OkayNov 2 2019
Pros: The girl who checked me in lied and said there were no cars available until my actual scheduled time and if she gave me a car 30 mins early then I would be charged an extra day. Then I went online and booked through Kayak and cancelled my previous reservations then suddenly there was a car available. Without apologizing for her mistake she goes and lied again and said, oh looks like the system just updated, now we have cars again.Cons: Hire more honest employees, and clearly disclosed all surchages. Also have shuttle to pick up at drop off location as it was extremely far having to walk from drop off area all the way back to lobby 2 in terminal 1.
3.6 MediocreOct 22 2019
Pros: Drop off was only positive part of experience. Will not rent again with this company.Cons: I reserved a compact or economy twice with advantage and both times got a full size or premium car. Both times they said they were upgrading me when I explicitly said that I preferred a small car. It’s not an upgrade if you are not giving the customer what they asked for. They were pushy about insurance on both occasions, very heavy sales approach.
9.6 ExcellentOct 21 2019
Pros: Staff was fast and helpful. Car was in great condition.Cons: I would probably request a different car if i was offered a camaro convertible ever again. Was like driving a boat with a huge nose.
2.0 MediocreOct 6 2019
Cons: Car had multiple dents and scratches, missing floor mats and had an odor.

4.0 OkayApr 27 2021
Cons: The rental company is off airport by 15 minutes. You have to wait outside in the sun until they call your name to come into the office. It is not clear that they have limited hours for the shuttle and for pickup and drop off. I was told I could drop the car off before they opened at 8:00 a.m. and in fact this turned out not to be true. I dropped the car off anyway by parking it on the street and catching a taxi. This did however work. They accepted the car even though they weren't happy. The car itself was fine and the price was fine. The experience with the agency was less than good
4.0 OkayApr 20 2021
Cons: Car was beat up bad, pick up smooth but drop of was a rude kid inspecting car. I would not rent again from them
10.0 ExcellentApr 14 2021
Pros: Staff were nice & friendly, easy no hassle to pick up or drop off vehicle.
2.0 MediocreApr 12 2021
Pros: Did not like anything. I would never use them again.Cons: The car was dirty, the car registration was out of date and expired September 2020. The shuttle never came to the airport for over and hour and when we finally talked to them and said we needed a shuttle they hung up on us. Once we got to the rental car location there were 2 parties in front of us and we waited around 1.5 hours to get the keys because the admin process was so slow. The car was disgusting, ants crawled out of random places every time we were in the car. We wiped it down with alcohol wipes for Covid reasons and they were black. Absolutely horrible. They informed us if we didn’t accept their insurance policy if we were In a wreck they would refuse working with any other insurance and we had to pay everything. Rude, slow, dirty, illegal (car registration). I can’t believe Kayak allows people to book this company
2.0 MediocreApr 12 2021
Pros: Pickup vans seemed to run frequently.Cons: I had to switch vehicles because the original 8 year old 2013 Passat had multiple issues. Who tennis out cars that old? The second vehicle was better but still had almost 70,000 obviously hard miles on it. It was pretty beat up with a very worn interior. Maybe they also have great newer cars, but that was not my experience.
2.0 MediocreApr 8 2021
Pros: NothingCons: It’s a scam! The rental company charged me an extra amount and they said nasty words when I called to ask about additional charge!!
2.0 MediocreApr 8 2021
Pros: Worst experience renting a car in my 40 years of driving. Would highly recommend going anyplace else no matter how much more expensive it is . This place should be removed from your websiteCons: Everything from the shuttle (which takes an hour) to the car itself. To the lack of customer service I don’t know where to begin. Just stay away I wish I would have
6.0 GoodApr 1 2021
Pros: I had a 8:00 a.m. flight and the company shuttle did not start until 8:00 a.m.. The only alternative was to take an Uber to the airport. Suggest this be revealed before booking.Cons: The process fir picking up the car was slow. Also, the gas was a 7/8th of a tank, even though I was instructed to bring the car back full.
4.0 OkayMar 23 2021
Pros: The lady that helped us when we picked up the van was helpful and friendly.Cons: The location of the lot was not ideal. There was a shuttle to and from the airport during business hours, but we had to find our own transportation on our return flight in the morning. Our van was older 75,000+ miles, dingy, and smelly. When we returned it, we were charged a cleaning fee for sand and food in the vehicle. Yes there was sand from our week of stay and play in Hawaii, but again the van wasn’t that clean to start with. I’m wasn’t aware of food left in the vehicle. There were a couple of empty fountain drink cups and a couple unopened plastic bottles of water and Gatorade that we thought someone could use since we couldn’t take them through airport security. When I called to ask about the charges ($52) the guy I talked to said they were for cleaning, but then said I should be thankful they weren’t higher and was defensive and rude about it. I didn’t think there was an excessive amount of sand, but if that’s their policy I would have liked to have known beforehand. I’ve rented cars in Hawaii before and haven’t had a problem. Our friends rented from Hertz and had at least as much sand if not more in their vehicle and weren’t charged, and they are located right at the airport. So beware, their prices are good, but you get what you pay for, and it might end up costing you more.

Pros: Staff was very friendly, both at pick up and drop off. Very efficient, little wait to pick up. Car was in good shape and easy to pick up and drive out.Cons: Interior of car could have been a bit cleaner (one or two spots needed a wipe with a damp napkin) but nothing egregious.
10.0 ExcellentJul 13 2019
Pros: Staff at both the desk and up in the rental garage were awesome. We received an amazing upgrade which enhanced our day's driving experience!Cons: The car's service light went on for Oil Chage almost immediately after we left with the car and by the time we returned in the afternoon the Add Engine Oil light was on, so while it didn't really impact our drive, I was a little worried by the time we got back.
8.0 ExcellentJun 27 2019

8.0 ExcellentNov 17 2019
Pros: Friendly, quick pick-up/drop offCons: First car smelled bad and I had to switch. I also was upgraded to car but that car (jeep wrangler) had no charger for cell phone or bluetooth. So it was a nicer car but with less amenities.
6.4 GoodSep 8 2019
Pros: The drop off was easy and quick. The car was clean for the most part. Drove fine.Cons: When we arrived to pick up the car we waited in line for the desk for an hour. Then we went upstairs and proceeded to wait another one hour 45 minutes. So altogether we waited 2 hours 45 minutes. And the waiting area was 90 degrees because it was outside.

6.4 GoodJul 8 2019
Pros: The young man at the Avis counter made every effort to make a bad situation better after we were told that we could not have the car that we had a confirmation for and that we had actually reserved a smaller car. He said that we would have to take it up with KAYAK in order to get it resolved.Cons: KAYAK and Avis need to interact better to be sure that he car that is reserved on the KAYAK site is what you will get and pay for when the car is rented and picked up.
4.0 OkayDec 11 2018
Not like the old AvisCons: I cheated on Hertz to give Avis a try. Boy was that a mistake. At one point they were equally competitive in quality, service, pricing and reputation. That sure has changed. Someone at Hertz at the executive level has created a superior culture and Avis’s went DOWNHILL badly. With Avis, the grass isn’t greener on this side of the fence.

2.4 MediocreNov 18 2019
Pros: Price was good.Cons: I had rented a minivan 2 weeks before my vacation. When I arrived to pick up my rental vehicle they did not have the minivan I rented. Instead they tried to give me a small suv that did not have enough room for my family. They did compromise and rented me a 16 passenger van. For the same price. The thing was a beast. It was very uncomfortable but I didn’t want to deal with getting another vehicle and just sucked it up. Also the office seemed very unorganized and not costumer friendly. I will not be renting from this company again.

Top tips for renting a car in Honolulu

  • Ready to rent a car on your vacation to Honolulu? If you are traveling to Honolulu International Airport, you will find a wide range of car rental options, both on and off-site. If you want to rent a car directly from the airport, head to the rental offices, which are conveniently located next to the baggage claim at Terminal 1. Alternatively, there are booking desks on the ground level of the Terminal 2 in the Parking Garage. On the ground level of the airport, there is also a car rental shuttle stop in designated areas along the center median, outside of baggage claim areas.
  • If you want the independence that comes with having your own set of wheels, avoid the slower public transport and less safe mopeds and rent a car in Honolulu. Park up on the coast and witness the natural beauty of Waikiki Beach, or take a road trip out to heights of the Diamond Head volcanic crater for a unique view of Honolulu.
  • As a visitor of Honolulu, it’s best to steer clear of driving in the Waikiki Beach area, as this is the main tourist hotspot and is naturally very busy. Driving around the town is a lot like navigating through a city so you can expect a slow traffic and lots of pedestrians. You must also embrace the “spirit of Aloha,” as locals are very relaxed when it comes to driving on any Hawaiian roads. Drivers should remember to be polite and make space for merging cars, thanking other road users. Also, unless there’s an emergency, lay off the use of your horn.
  • Rush hour in Honolulu starts early, as the busy weekday traffic hits from 5 am to 8 am. By the afternoon, rush hour goes from 3 pm to 6:30 pm ,when drivers are outbound. Try to avoid taking your car on the surface streets of downtown Honolulu and Waikiki, as these tend to be busy. You should also steer clear of the H-1 and H-2 Interstates, as well as Nimitz Highway/Ala Moana Boulevard, as traffic is heavy on these routes.
