I actually rented from Alamo twice in Oahu and I rented from Thrifty in Kauai. The difference is night and day between the two. Customer service, quality and cleanliness of the car, clear terms of cost were all more than I expected from a car rental company. I’m still fighting with Thrifty over unfair charges. I don’t know if all Alamos are created equal but I highly recommend Oahu airport Alamo!!!

The new rental facility is very difficult to find and enter. What a mess in traffic lanes, signs, road conditions, etc. Not much gained here, plus a very long walk from Alamo to Alaska Airline. How much more do we have to pay for this monstrosity and edifice to this airport.

Staff were so friendly. The computer system in Honolulu wasn’t communicating correctly with my drop off in Kailua, this added about an hour to our wait. Staff were great but it was a bit tiring after a long flight.
6.0 GoodJan 4 2022
We thought we were renting at the airport but this is actually a location a few miles away. There is no transportation to the site so we had to take a cab there - an added expense. The hours at this site are extremely limited and they have no option for a drop-off when they are closed. They are only open Monday through Friday from 7:30 to 5:00 pm. When we were done with the rental we had to pay an extra $50 to return the car at the airport, because we needed to drop the car off before 7:30 am. In addition, when we got a flat tire, we were unable to switch the car out until the next day because they were closed.
10.0 ExcellentDec 6 2021
Staff was great at ensuring we were in and out of there smoothly and quickly. Probably our best and fastest pick up of a rental! Car could have been cleaner inside but regardless, would highly recommend.
10.0 ExcellentNov 22 2021
The pick up process was simple. Panda assisted us and he was awesome. His overall customer service skills were great! He went over all the details and it made sense. I like that they take photos of the car and sent it to my email. It was really nice not having to take photos as I usually do at rental places. The car was clean and had gas, we had no issues with pick up or drop off. They sent me an email with the final subtotal and details, which was very nice and easy.
2.0 MediocreNov 17 2021
I asked for airport pickup if the car rental but Kayak picked another Enterprise that was near the airport but not part of the airport rental and thus I had to Uber $40 to get to the other Enterprise rent a car.
4.0 OkayOct 29 2021
transfer to location should be provided. i got on the enterprise shuttle and it took me to the enterprise that i basically could have walked to; then the lady told me that this is not the pick up location and they would not transfer the reservation and called me a cab. the reservation did not indicate i had to take a taxi and pay and additional $12 to get there and $15 to get back to the airport on the return. why the amounts were different, i don't know. but i did not have time to question since the inspector on the return took a ridiculous amount of time to inspect the vehicle. also, on the return the employee that did the visual was trying to say that the front passenger quarter panel did not line up with the front bumper which was certainly not visible to me at all. i even ran my finger over it and there was nothing was un-level implying i had hit the front end on something like the concrete parking stops; which i did not since i back into EVERY space when i park. all i can say is i am glad i took pictures of the vehicle when i picked it up. when i told the manager that and showed him, he said "ok...not a problem"

Not enough economy cars. That's what people want with today's high gas prices. ALWAYS make sure there are enough representatives at the check-in desks so that people don't have to wait a long time. There's nothing more frustrating after a long flight.

Our agent Susy who checked us back in on the return was amazing!
6.0 GoodApr 3 2022
The counter staff was polite and friendly. However, the issue was vehicle availability. They didn’t have the Jeep Grand Cherokee I had reserved and offered me a free upgrade to a BMW. I had 4 in my party and we couldn’t fit our lugggage in. After struggling for a bit we knew it wouldn’t fit. I had to go back downstairs and wait in line again because they couldn’t switch vehicles for me in the garage. That took awhile and my choices were wait for the Cherokee to be ready or pay double my original reservation to get a vehicle with the same trunk space. We had just landed in Oahu and already spent over 1 1/2 hours just to get a car. So I ended up paying $800 for a 2 day rental so we could get on with our vacation. The staff was very friendly so good marks for that! Will stick with Hertz in the future. I can get in and out in 10 minutes and exchanges are super easy.

The car was supposed to be full but only had 1/2 thankful. I called Sixt cust serv and was told to just bring back with at least that much gas in the tank (which is a scam in itself), and so I returned it with 3/4 thankful - which amounts to $20 in gas. And the still charged me a $45 fuel fee. I call that very poor customer service and I will be contesting the charge.

A complete fiasco. I booked a rental car for a vacation to Hawaii. Kayak/Priceline booked the car to be picked up and dropped off at a location a few miles from the airport. The problem is that my flight arrived at the airport from the U.S. and the rental car location was not open when I arrived (9:30 pm) or when I needed to depart (7 a.m.). When I tried to call Priceline, I was told to deal with the rental car company. I learned my lesson....never again.
2.0 MediocreMay 18 2022
We liked the car. Everything else was pretty bad. We booked a car at Honolulu airport Hertz. The actual rental agency we booked at was a mile away from the airport with no shuttle (452 Kalewa St, Honolulu, HI 96819). It was not the Hertz actually inside the airport. So after traveling all day, we had to take a cab with our small children and luggage to the Hertz Car Rental - Oahu, Honolulu - North Nimitz HLE location. The customer service person who rented us our car there wouldn't shut up about how he texts people that this isn't the airport location all the time, and it's not even his job to do that and he does it in his off-hours. He kept talking about this even after we politely said we understood but were tired and just wanted to get our car. He did give us a free "upgrade" but I suspect that was because they didn't actually have the car we rented on the lot. We also weren't able to drop our car off at that location to catch an early flight because they were closed with a fenced lot locked up and no night drop. We called Hertz corporate and they said they couldn't modify the reservation for a different drop-off and to call the closed location. Obviously, no one answered, so we got charged a drop fee for taking it to the airport.
4.0 OkayMay 17 2022
The wait is long and the team isn’t the friendliest. Would go for a different company if I’ll be honest. And that’s with the car being fine.

I made a booking for Honolulu Airport, while they are 1.7 miles from the airport, they would not pick up or drop off, Therefore you need to add $36 in Uber fees to the cost of the rental. The car wasn’t clean and had a mildew smell, you could not see through the side view mirrors. Personnel were friendly but refused to give us a ride to the airport.
6.0 GoodMay 12 2022
I definitely will not pick-up and drop off from that location again. Not convenient for us at all. The airport location is way better.

Drop off nice. Due to my error booking through 3rd party… would have been nice if Hertz could have assisted more and not have extra fees for every little thing that seems so simple as to switching drop off locations or pick up locations…. Put a damper on ease of traveling as a vacationer to spend extra hours to get from a to b to c…..
8.0 ExcellentMay 6 2022
We got an older car with 50k on it and a fair share of dents and scratches. That's not a big deal -- I'm happy as long as it runs and drives well, which it did. I was surprised that there was no option given to note this damage before we took the car off the lot -- we weren't given a sheet to fill out, and the exit wasn't manned, so we just took a bunch of photos when we left. When we returned it, the process was very quick and the attendant didn't take a close look at the vehicle either. I guess they just accept that there's going to be some typical damage. It looks like they get a lot of turnover there: the return area was nearly full both times we were at the location.
2.0 MediocreMay 6 2022
The day before we were due to pick up our rental, I got a text message informing me that my pickup had changed to a location further away from the airport. This made departure even more difficult and time consuming with all our luggage and a baby. The car itself was just okay, older model and made rattling noises when driven.

Car not well-maintained. Needed a mechanic. I received a new car that had been treated poorly by previous drivers; wear and tear was evident, including an unidentifiable (and somewhat alarming) hard rattle from somewhere near the rear wheels. (Suspension? Axle? Bad shocks?) I only felt comfortable in the car because I was not traveling long distance.

hour long line on pickup.. only 2 agents working.. called day 10 to extend rental ... they insisted on using the same Visa confirmation number which was used on the original rental. crazy... called our bank/visa... need to apply to same card but new confirmation... bank said "happens all the time with Thrifty".. banks not going to re-open a confirmation... just put through another.. therefore, per Thrifty in India, we had to take a day of vacation, drive to Honolulu airport Thrifty, go through hour long line to "re-do" application to achieve extension... said hell with it.. called enterprise .. unloaded golf clubs, diving equipment etc from car, hauled from parking lot to room. Took car back to Thrifty on last day of contract, turned in, then walked around the airport to Enterprise and rented a substitute car for the rest of the stay.. Still lost a half day messing around with the problem.. plus "the hassle !!!!!" all because Thrifty's software is fouled up... plus the long line cking in, plus car with high mileage, plus passenger seat had "steel" frame which tore into you leg every time getting out of the SUV. Not good... no more Thrifty..

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

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.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.

Drop off was only positive part of experience. Will not rent again with this company.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.

First off Dollar and Thrifty Rentals at Honolulu Airport sucks really bad. There is a long line and wait for about two hours to check in for the rental agent desk area and then to go pick up the car is another 3 hour wait. So all in all it was a very bad experience for me. I even missed the Luau I was supposed to be at during the evening because of this rental agency flops. Thank you very so much.

We had to give them additional money for a 4 door when we originally booked a 4 door. Price didn’t matter as much. But the guy that helped us was the worse one yet. If he didn’t like he’s job, he should have work somewhere else instead of putting his bad mood on us. Very very disrespectful. The car was dirty and had a lot of things wrong with it. Aux was broken. Many things were broken.

There were at least 30 people in line and 1 counter person. It took an hour and 15 minutes to get to the counter 🤬

Overly strict on the pickup and dropoff timing. I wanted to pickup the car 45 mins ahead of my booking as I arrived earlier than expected. I was told that if i wanted to pickup the car then, i had to return it 45 mins earlier as well, or a full day would be charged. Otherwise I would have to sit around for 45 mins before I could pick it up. Its my first time experiencing this policy and level of inflexibility from any car rental provider. On the other hand, Alamo supported me with a flexible return time that was out of the usual business hours for no extra fee, and even threw in a free upgrade.

Mazda 6 is a lovely car, comfortable, responsive and economical. Pickup was fast, friendly and several different vehicle choices were available. Dropoff was also very fast and easy. Overall this rental was a great value too.

Efficient and no fuss
2.0 MediocreDec 29 2021
Really nothing to like - service staff is rude, disrespectful, dishonest, and condescending. Safety and maintenance - not a priority. Our family family rented two cars from the HNL airport - one overheated from an empty, damaged coolant reservoir, and the other had almost no engine coolant remaining it’s tank. Found food containers and old masks in one of the “cleaned and sanitized” cars. Observed over fifty people waiting multiple hours (some over four) for their cars.

Got there and was told " don't know why they advertise Jeeps, don't have any" Tried to give me a mini van that was trashed inside and out. Got my money back and a Cab back to the airport to rent from a well known name.

The staffI had a vehicle with an expired tag and got pulled over multiple times, Was not able to use the car as much because I was afraid to get pulled over. I was not able to get ahold of the facility to exchange the vehicle

Price was good.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.

The vehicle that we rented was exactly what we needed for our task at hand. Clean, roomy and a lot of cargo area for baggage!Hmmm...nothing really. Every aspect of the rental went well, just make sure to read the contract thoroughly before signing!

By the time we arrived at the beach to eat our food, we had to throw it a

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.
