KAYAK’s top tips for renting a car in Honolulu

  • One of the most popular attractions in Honolulu’s neighboring city, Aiea, is the Aiea Loop Trail. Many people from Honolulu visit the place over the weekend for a chance to relax and reenergize for the coming week. Consider getting cheap car rentals in Honolulu when you visit such attractions. It’ll take about 22min to get to the trail from Honolulu city center, which is approximately 11 miles away. You can also get a chance to visit other exciting attractions, such as the Pearl Harbor and Keaīwa Heiau State Recreation Area, which are found in the Aiea City with the convenience of a rental car.
  • Honolulu is known for its numerous outdoor enthusiasts. A lot of people go to enjoy bike rides when the weather is sunny outside. There are also cycling groups that take part in group-rides during such times. Honolulu has bike lanes that are adjacent to vehicle lanes. It is worth noting that cyclists in this city have the same rights as car drivers, so it is essential to be respectful and careful when driving affordable Honolulu car rentals alongside cyclists. This will keep you on the right side of the law and avoid any accident that may be catastrophic to cyclists.
  • Economy cheap car rentals in Honolulu are ideal for travelers in Honolulu looking to make in-city trips. This is one of the standard options for most people renting vehicles thanks to the excellent nature of most roads in the city. With the economy car, you can access most streets easily and park in most, if not all, parking spaces. On the other hand, if you are looking forward to experiencing some off-road adventure in the Oahu’s off-road trails, such as Kuakolala Access Road and Gunstock Ranch, consider getting a 4X4 truck. It has sufficient ground clearance and power to keep you going without a hitch.
  • 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.
  • 25% of our users found rental cars in Honolulu for $45 or less
  • Book your rental car in Honolulu at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Off-airport rental car locations in Honolulu are around 27% cheaper than airport locations on average
  • Intermediate rental cars in Honolulu are around 14% cheaper than other car types, on average

Driving in Oahu was straight forward. Have patience, plan your route ahead of time. Don't book with a third party if you can help yourself. Book with someone who is accountable if that's even still a thing in 2024

Driving is busy and can be hectic. Just allow extra time and map where you’re going before driving. Also, police are everywhere so drive the speed limit and don’t be in a hurry.

I picked up Dodge mini-van, for 6 passengers and 6 big suitcases. It was perfectly fit but fuel consumption was no good. There are many road constructions out there, so you should take H1 freeway between airport and waikiki area. Nimitz and Ala-Moana Blvd is no use especially in peak time.

Driving was congested in certain areas. Plan ahead with enough time to get where you are going. I use Waze to find detours.

FAQs about renting a car in Honolulu

  • What type of car is recommended for driving in Honolulu?

    If you’re looking to enjoy all the outdoor sights that Honolulu offers, then you must investigate renting either a midsize car or an SUV that can handle the winding coastal roads. You want to rent something that you feel completely comfortable in, as you may end up taking a tour of the whole of Oahu island. A midsize car with good trunk space is ideal. But, if you prefer to soak up the sun, then a convertible would be perfect.

  • What’s the speed limit in Honolulu?

    Across the islands of Hawaii, the speed limits are notoriously low. The limits on the freeways are usually 55 to 60 mph. Thanks to Honolulu’s often narrow and winding highways, high-speed driving is not advised. On some roads even 30 mph is seen as too fast. Watch out for the 35-mph S-curve on the H-1 Interstate heading eastbound, between the 18 and 19 exits, as well as speed enforcement who often patrol in unmarked police cars.

Got to the first vehicle they offered us and it was broken and had tears in the seats and missing parts of the interior. They then said that they didn’t have anything else in the full size suv that I paid for so I had to pay to upgrade to a smaller suv cause it was considered luxury. That vehicle had no shock and was the worst and bumpiest vehicle I have ever driven.

I booked a car for pick up at 4:30 pm on 5/27/22. The honolulu airport budget seemed to have minimal cars available. I was told that even though I had a pick up time, it was going to be about an hour wait. Given the fact I had dinner plans, I had to cancel the reservation. I booked an Uber instead.

Pros:

The car was nice. It performed well. A customer service person, after some work on the phone, help me fix two of the issues.

Cons:

The car was not completely clean, inside and out. 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.

Pros:

Easy drop off

Cons:

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

Beware this Hertz is not accessible from the Honolulu airport terminals. Had to take an Uber/Taxi to and from the Hertz. Kayak/Hertz doesn’t make it clear that this Hertz doesn’t have access to the airport.

The attitude of the branch manager was horrible. My flight was delayed and when I arrived at the store the next day (but within 24 hours), the car was not kept for me. I tried to contact Hertz multiple times but was not able to get in touch. The manager then asked me to pay $100 extra to get a car. It was by far the worst experience I have had for car rental.

Koapaka St pickup location was about 15 minute walk from Daniel K. Inouye Airport (HNL). Not bad if you know where to go and how to get there. Walk to the Diamond Head end (east) of the terminal, first floor. Follow the street past Dunkin Donuts, and IHOP, or cut across the parking lot of the shopping center across the street, angling NW. Koapaka is the street before Meleluca Store. One option is to leave one person watching the luggage while the one person goes to pick up the car. Took me about 30-45 minutes waiting in line, checking in, and receiving the keys to the car. Dealers choice was a 2021 model with less than 5,000 miles. Overall, good deal for the price if you are willing to walk, catch a taxi, or hook up with a ride sharing company. Either way you are still saving money versus renting a car from the new car rental facility at the airport. Dropping off was faster since there was no one waiting for service.

Did not like discovering the hidden costs of adding a second driver. The pickup experience was AWFUL - 2-and-a-half-hour wait for the vehicle in a sultry garage without water or bathrooms - after we had completed the rental agreement. Will never rent from Thrifty again.

Pros:

My flight got in late at night. I usually use Enterprise but the airport branch was closed so I took a risk and booked Thrifty. I'm glad it panned out. The staff member was efficient and kind. I feel like given the rental car shortage in Hawaii the price was reasonable. Pick up and drop off was a breeze.

Cons:

When we came to drop off the car, since the lot is both Dollar and Thrifty I wasn't 100% sure where I was supposed to park because all of the signs say Dollar. An un-uniformed man motioned for me to park in a spot then wandered off. Once we unloaded the car he popped back up, collected our rental contract and keys and sent us to the shuttle line. Overall 4.9 out of 5.

I rented a small SUV back in March for June in Honolulu HI. back in March the rental was cheap 250 for 6 days, then the car rental in HI blew up. I was so relieved that I already had my rental reserved. When I got to HI and went to pick up my car they told me that I had my rental pick up set at Wakiki not at the airport. No biggie I took an Uber to pick it up at the address they sent me to, only to find out that it’s been permanently closed since the pandemic. So I called customer support and everyone kept apologizing and saying that they could not help me but they could cancel my reservation. All of them wanted to help me by canceling my reservation. I said absolutely not to this “help” I persisted but they could do nothing for me on that day. Luckily my hotel was not far from the location the Uber had taken us. So now we were forced to walk lugging our luggage for at least a mile. The next day someone was able to help me and I had to take another Uber to pick up a car. Not the one I rented but I was glad to have something to get around in. Not a great experience getting it but ok once I got it. They still made me drop off the car at the new location they sent me to and I had to take another Uber to the airport so another 78 bucks down the drain.

Pros:

Car was reasonably clean and in good condition. Some upholstery stains. Only when asked the shuttle driver explained "tips" in an understandable manner without putting pressure or guilt on us. Insurance was available in 3 price ranges. I bought it this time. Representative explained insurance coverage on an island costs more than on the mainland. Even with coverage from my car insurance company there could be uncovered costs. Check with your insurance provider and try to get it in writing. They took reasonable photos off the car sides and hood. The photos covered us, but just barely. I would rent again!...just a little more wisely! Happy Travels!

Cons:

Car had smoke smell that cleared out the end of the week. Shuttle drivers hope for larger tips because they are only paid a base like restaurant staff. A little bit of pressure to buy insurance. I decided to buy this time. Almost had an accident twice while there, but got lucky. Accused of damaging the car. Damage was not clear in the photos when we picked up the car. We were assured that the photos got everything. DON'T TAKE ANYONE'S WORD FOR THE QUALITY OF THEIR PHOTOS. INSPECT THE CAR HIGH AND LOW YOURSELF!! We were lucky this time, but from now on I will inspect the car myself and ask for extra photos. I may even take some myself before I leave the lot.

Representatives took forever to assist me even though there was only one other customer there. They’re online system was glitching when I placed my reservations so I got 4 reservations for the same dates so I had to cancel 3. They charged me $108 cancellation fees for the 3 reservations I had to cancel. When I ask the representative when I returned the rental, she didn’t know why and later called me to let me to call customer service, who couldn’t do anything but told me to email the customer service email. Worst customer service ever.
