They called me 24 hours prior to my flight stating they close at Noon on Saturday and closed on Sunday. Of course my flight wasn’t getting in till after that time. Thus, I had to cancel and be charged $50 What rental car company in Hawaii, on a Saturday, closes that early?

Unfriendly staff! Had to drop it off by 5 otherwise a $75 extra charge!

Quick and easy. Little hard to find being in the hotel. Only a couple signs if that. Could do better in identifying their location.
1.9 HorribleJun 23 2021
Price of rental was the cheapest I found. Car make and model was great with many perks and features. It was also larger than the initial car I thought I was going to get. Although all this was great, the car was not very clean on the inside and outside. Dust and dirt on the mirrors. The customer service was also not very welcoming and helpful. Had to call another location for advice due to a complication and they were able to assist me while the manager said he could not.
2.0 MediocreJun 18 2021
Nothing.One of the workers at the site was unapologetically rude. I have never met someone in the service industry who had no concept of customer service. It took over two plus hours to get a car. Then when checking back in he saw some sand in the trunk and said that the car had to be completely sand free and that he was going to charge a cleaning fee. “I expect you to be completely sand free when you get back in the car”. He then was completely unprofessional when another employee cleared the car. The whole process check in, check out is a nightmare. Make sure you have plenty of time to deal with all of the time you spend at the location.

Staff was friendlyThis Hertz location is by the airport, but not on airport grounds. No shuttle service to the location, meaning a $35 2 minute Uber ride to get there and back. Once there, the systems were quite inefficient. We were there on time, but waited 30 minutes in order to get the car, with only two people in line ahead of us. The process was very slow. No comfortable facilities to wait for your turn.

I loved the unlimited mileage, the customer service was phenomenal they came and picked me up from the airport at 7:10pm even though they close at 7pm. The whole process was quick and easy!

Hawaiian AnneversaryCar 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!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.
6.0 GoodJan 28 2018
Okay serviceAlmost made me go with a smart mini car even though I had prepaid for an economy size. Finally relented and let me take a Honda Fit.The shuttle from the airport to the rental place only comes every 30-45 min. Had to call the company and ask where the shuttle was.
3.2 MediocreJan 22 2018
Poor Customer ServiceThat it was cheap.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.

If you see something, say somethingNothing to likeWe paid the price for a four door car which was supposed to be Hyundai elentra equivalent. It turned out to be a Smart two door. The waiting time for the pick up was more than an hour?? We really hope the company operators themselves try using Economy Rent A Car and experience how terrible it is as so many reviewers have mentioned.
2.0 MediocreDec 7 2017
Didn’t rent from them after atrocious reviewsI canceled my reservation soon after booking because I read some of the worst reviews I can even imagine on a well known review website. Following others’ advice, I instead rented from a well known national brand for the same amount of money as Economy. I do not know why they continue to be in business.
4.4 OkayDec 4 2017
Very old car with peeling steering wheelCar smelled of smokers
2.0 MediocreNov 26 2017
Useless piece of s*** experienceNothing. Absolutely nothing.They gave us a Toyota Camby with 90K plus miles. Torn interiors and stinking of smell. Many safety hazards... side mirrors are blurred to the worst extent possible making it impossible for visibility. Forget about headlights .... the plastic lid on the headlights was beyond translucent ... pretty close to being opaque. All in all, my worst experience with a rental agency for the first time ever. Taught me a good lesson: ALWAYS READ REVIEWS ONLINE BEFORE BOOKING A RENTAL CAR.
4.8 OkayNov 26 2017
Have you seen Better Call Saul?The service itself was pretty quick, but everything else felt like a one night stand that you totally regretted as soon as you sobered up. The place felt like a used car lot and the car itself was not in prime condition. The entire experience felt like a front for illicit activities! I mean the car tags were exprired, thank God the cops weren’t looking.Everything except the speedy service.

They have moved their car pick up desk to the area where the cars are actually located -- in the garage. It went very smoothly and the person who checked us in was very nice. There are special steps you have to take to show you are vaccinated- all good.

Pickup and drop off was easy and people friendly. Pick up area was tricky to find.I reserved an intermediate sedan and they tried to give me a compact car. Should stick to size reserved. But was quick to correct it so we had no issues.

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.Interior of car could have been a bit cleaner (one or two spots needed a wipe with a damp napkin) but nothing egregious.
8.0 ExcellentJun 27 2019

I appreciate the upgrade given my reserved car was not ready when I arrived. As fun as the car was, it seemed to have limited abilities like being able to open the sky roof which would have been nice given we had it.
10.0 ExcellentSep 8 2021
The car we rented had several dents and scratches. I wish they had sold the car for better one. However, Sixt had a list of all those dents accounted in the receipt. The service was great and pick up/drop off was a breeze. The front desk representative was very nice and helpful. The price was the best comparing to other competitors for same type of car at Honolulu airport for the week we rented. Car pickup/drop off is right at the airport, across from Terminal 2. This company has several European cars such as Audi, Benz if one is interested.

Great car and drop off. My only criticism was find help at pick up on how to use one of the features of the car. They desk experience at pickup was perfect. It was only in the parking lot where it took some time to find an attendant.
10.0 ExcellentAug 21 2021
Wonderful experience at the counter. I had an Audi Q5 it was very clean inside and did NOT smell bad like most Hawaii rental cars. Easy return at the airport. Great car!!
1.9 HorribleAug 20 2021
Due to Covid we cancelled our trip. We were tried to cancel our car but between sixt and kayak you ripped us off of $500. I will never ever use your service to book anything. I am sharing this experience with many.

7.9 GoodJul 30 2021
pick up at the airport was difficult, i did not fly in so i had to navigate the rental area without coming from the airport so there was no signage. once in the rental area there was no phone reception so i could not deal with a couple things that they wanted me to do while at the counter so i had to walk outside and then wait in line again after checking my phone. when returning the car, the navigation to get to the facility was complex and i had to follow these small detour signs that took me all over the place including cutting across traffic and over a weird temporary parking lot enterance that was built up over a curb and bottomed out the SUV just to get to the return. if i'm bottoming out an SUV i'm sure everyone bottoms out all their other cars too. The car was great and the people were friendly and patient. Price was expensive but so is everything these days.

We showed up first thing in the morning, they were more than happy to help us right away. We had some trouble finding the counter as it's inside a car dealership, but the car was great, the service we received was really great. The guy who helped us was very nice, personable, and willing to help us any way he could. Great experience!
