Pros: As we were on a short schedule, pickup at the airport, receipt of the car and return process, it was great.
8.4 Excellent
19 May 2017
Pros: Super easy to turn in and the shuttle service was quick and efficient. Car was very clean
Cons: Didn't like that the customer service rep located outside where you choose your car treated people like we were a bother to her. Then, when she insisted that a Fiat 500 was a compact SUV because it had a hatch that really irked me. It ended up being enough space to transport 5 people (but not luggage for everyone, glad we didn't need it to) but her attitude was crappy.
3.2 Mediocre
3 Jul. 2017
Cons: We were charged more than what had been suggested by you and had to buy their insurance even though we took insurance out with you. We also had selected gps when booking to be included in the price however when collecting the car they said that we hadn't and would have to pay for it. Overall not a rest experience.

Frustrating start, but good after that
Pros: We hated the first car we picked and took it back to exchange. They swapped it out for us, no problem and were super nice about it. The drop off was great because we were dropped in front of our individual airline desks which was nice. Everything wasn’t perfect, but it was really good and we will look at using Alamo again.
Cons: The pick up needed better directions. We were told to go to the center median and wait. However, they only pick up at the very end median. Nothing was said about this ever and it took 30 minutes to get everything figured out and schlep down to the other end of the airport pickups. The second car we got was not cleaned well, and we questioned if it had been cleaned at all. We took it anyway and gave it a good wipe down ourselves. Nothing terrible, but we were a little thrown off by it

Dirty minded clerk ever!
Pros: Nothing at all.
Cons: I'm typing this on behalf of my mother. Apparenty, the Alamo clerk in Hawaii deceived my mom with charging her heavy insurance fee and many other options. Since my mom speaks only limited English, she couldn't understand the contract fully and they didn't try their best to make my mom understood the contract. So she felt the contract was kind of fraud. As I experienced, Enterprise is way better in terms of service and their kindness for customer. We would never suggest Alamo to anyone.

Missed the mark
Pros: Affordable internet rate and nice facility
Cons: The Attitude of the individual who sent us off with the car. Looked at me like I was an idiot when I asked a question about previous damage on the vehicle and got into a staring match or something. It's the only way I can describe it. I asked him a question and he just stared at me. I felt like I was in high school again. Bottom line the dude was incredibly unprofessional and is not helping leave a good impression on the facility. Additionally I drove the car for about 50 miles. The vehicle was a fiat and had 7/8ths of a tank remaining. I was then charged for 3-4 gallons of gas. I highly doubt that the fiat has 24 or 32 gallon tank. If you are going to charge a higher premium for the fuel at the station then charge the correct quantity
4.0 Okay

deceptive prices
Pros: the car itself, although not cleaned well from previous renter
Cons: all the costs that are not disclosed up front. daily rental cost appears low, but be prepared for actual rental to be 3 times higher than your quoted because of overpriced insurance, fuel fee, and other hidden fees. I'll never rent from alamo again and I'll never trust ptices listed by kayak.

Excellent Service
Pros: I booked my thrifty car rental in Honolulu through kayak online it was very quick and easy. My flight was delayed and I was worried as I was fifteen minutes late to pick up my car from the rental service but the staff were very accommodating and there was no issues. On pick up I had the most helpful staff member named Ed give me multiple suggestions of places to visit in Oahu. He was so friendly and helpful he was a joy to chat to. The car was very good and was great for gas. Only need to fill up the tank 1.5 times during two week rental and I was driving all over the island. Upon return the staff were very quick taking only a few minutes to check the car before telling me everything was in order and I was free to take their free shuttle bus to the airport. All in all an excellent experience.
Cons: There was very little I didn't like about the service. The only thing which I feel could be done differently is at pick up I was offered a fuel insurance. Where if I paid $44 I could bring the car back with any level of gas. At the time I thought this was a good deal however when filling the car up from empty I found it only cost $28 for a full tank of gas. Apart from that there was nothing else I would change about the service.

First and only time renting from Thrifty
Pros: The reservation process online and the shuttle drivers were nice, just extremely slow
Cons: Everything. Picking up the vehicle required a shuttle that took over 30 minutes. Then the upselling process, the ridiculous outrageous insurance prices, to the dirty vehicles, and the conditions of the vehicle... I informed one of the associates at Thrifty that the vehicle was shaking when I drove the vehicle and they informed me that it was normal. Which was not comforting at all. Overall, I would never give Thrifty my business again.

Jeep was fun but inconvenient
Pros: The staff at Thrifty was friendly but rushed. Bus drivers were nice and very helpful.
Cons: We'd requested a convertible but the only one they had was a Jeep. It was fun but not secure. The back windows are just zipped in place and could easily have been unzipped.

Terrible!
Cons: We were treated badly at the airport. Our original Hertz rental was supposed to be picked up at Lowers Street (which is NOT at the airport). WE realized the day before and called Hertz to switch our reservation to the airport. Hertz did change it over the phone but when we got to the airport they did not receive the reservation change and gave us a very bad time about it. Secondly, we were charged $885.59 on 7/19/17 AND $602.97 on 7/31/17. Do you have any suggestions as to what we should do? Sincerely, Alexander & Michele Gutierrez

So many choices
Pros: Got a great value on line.
Cons: So many choices and it takes so long to know which one is where, the shuttle picked us up at one place and then took us to one location, the second location came and picked us up so the luggage transfer was a bit of a pain. It listed a shuttle but this is not correct. The only shuttle service is to the main one on the airport, all others have to come and get you and transfer luggage, had I taken a car at the airport, it would have been almost double what I paid. Also when I arrived they did not have the car that I had reserved, they never do, but they will always upgrade you to a "better one" . My better one was a pick up, which was OK, but may not be for others. I was worried it would not get good mileage but it did. In the end all was well beyond the transfer of luggage, I had one very heavy one.

bait and switch
Cons: I made reservations for 4 days at $218. Got there at 1930, only to find out the non airport Enterprise closed at 1800 and the airport Enterprise would not honor the $218 price. Had to pay $350 for the same size car for the same 4 days.

It took awhile to get picked up and receive our car but again, the customer service was so great it washed away this inconvenience!!

Honolulu HI review

Read your receipt carefully
Pros: It's close to most the terminals.
Cons: I will never go to this budget again. If you rent a car for a week it cost "less" than renting one for 3 days. If you use your own insurance it cost "more" than if you use theirs because they have a special. DOUBLE check your receipt carefully. After spending way too long discussing renting options I rent a van based on my travel dates. I should have looked at the receipt carefully. When I returned the car I was charged 1 extra day and a fee. The receipt had the car return a day earlier but i clearly told the guy I was flying my flight details and how many dates of need the car. The WHOLE thing was awful. There are always hidden fees when renting cars in this case I paid 170 more than expected.

Given an expired car & charged double than was boo
Pros: Customer Service was very friendly (in person at the location)
Cons: I came to visit a family member in the military. The car rented to me had expired tags and registration, so I was unable to get onto the base. I called the rental company and told them about the situation. They suggested I drive back to Honolulu, which was over an hour from where I was, to get a new registration or new vehicle. I refused to waste any more time driving back. I had to park the car a few miles away at a location that would allow it, and pay for a ride back, so I was unable to use the vehicle. I ended up returning the car early and still had to pay for a day's worth of keeping it. I was also charged over double the price of the booking price I made online.

Good luck extending your rental!
Pros: I got a great daily rate on a rental in Honolulu. I picked the car up at the airport location - which is a shuttle ride away and not onsite. The customer service at the counter was great and the young woman helping me said it would be no problem to extend my rental at the same rate if necessary.
Cons: Fast forward to the end of my rental. I was waiting for my car to arrive from the mainland and it was delayed at the port. I needed to extend my rental for one day so called to do so. Instead of adding an extra day, at my contracted rate, what they said needed to happen is a whole new contract. So rather than simply adding a day - even at a new rate (which at the time of the call I could get a one-day rental at Dollar for $45) - the re-quoted the entire contract and said I had to do a weekly rental as it was now 5 days instead of 4. So my previous plan went from $117 total to $389 total. In no world is this fair! Better off renting the car for longer than you need and returning it early as that fee is only $25! Bye bye Dollar and good luck with your scams.

Pros: Quick pick up process, friendly staff
Cons: The drop off location was unmarked and extremely difficult to find. When I mentioned this to the staff they blamed poor airport signage due to construction. However no one warned me upon pick-up of any difficulties i might encounter trying to return the car, nor was I given any instructions for drop off. I very nearly missed my flight, as did a number of other customers.

Reliable Rental Agency
Pros: Over the years my wife and I have had positive experiences when renting from Dollar, and found more of the same for this last rental. The customer service agent was not pushing add-ons or a vehicle upgrade. Instead, she made recommendations based on our particular situation and needs (our car was in the shop for about a week for computer repairs). As long as Dollar has vehicles for rent at reasonable prices they will be at the top of our list for consideration.
Cons: There were some extraneous surface scratches on our vehicle that didn't bother us, but it was somewhat disconcerting that no one verified those blemishes at the time of checking out the vehicle. Without that verification by an employee, an unscrupulous agency might attempt to bill renters for the blemishes again and again without the renter having any documentation to show that the blemishes were pre-existing.

Worst passenger van
Pros: The passenger van was very old and was very noisy both inside and outside. Worst of all, the right rear tire burst out at 5:30am in the morning. Our calls to road side assistance from the rental company was never answered. Luckily I could rely on AAA. Poor customer service from the rental company. I won't think of renting from them again.

Pros: The staff was very friendly while I was actually there.
Cons: The car was sort of broken, I tried calling many times to no avail. They have no late night drop off so you have to be back by 5pm or pay for another day. They tell you to bring car back with gas or they charge you extra but the car was nearly on 'E' when I picked it up.

Cons: I wasn't able to rent the car and I am in the process of trying to get a refund. I went to the address listed on my confirmation email and it was their repair depot instead of their rental place. I tried to use Google maps to find their rental place and I was led to a back alley in waikiki. We spent a total of 2 hours looking for the place and this made my family and I late for my grandfathers funeral services. If you could aide us in getting a refund I would so cerely appreciate it.

Cons: My car was not available at the airport. I was taken to an industrial park near the airport. My car was not there. It was in Waikiki.

Ace can also the be the lowest in the deck, not always the highest
Pros: The guys were very friendly.
Cons: I understand getting the vehicle you select “or similar”, but from an Mid size SUV with normal things like auto locks, electric windows, etc. to a Jeep that does NOT have these “assumed” luxuries was a bit of a let down. To compensate they did offer a larger SUV, but being in Hawaii, it’s the last place you want a Large SUV. So we accepted the Jeep even though the carpeting was torn and pulled out on the passenger’s side / Cigarette burns in the seats / and lack of auto anything. Then we were pulled over by the police due to expired inspection sticker. We did not get a ticket once I explained it was a rental. I called the rental company about this and they said they we try to do something... “maybe pay for the ticket” if we got one. They placed us on hold for over five minutes while we were there with the police so we finally hung up. No help or support at all once we left the lot with their rental. When returning the Jeep and informing them again of the expired stickers, they said “...not to worry, that is just a Hawaii thing, it’s no big deal.” Well it was a big deal, we got pulled over by the police because of this “no big deal”. I also informed them that the oil light reminder was on the whole time and he downplayed this as well. My wife, son and I thought these guys were shady from when we first interacted with them.

Pay a bit more and rent from elsewhere
Cons: The two of us booked and prepaid for an economy size car (in this location, we were told in person, it was a smart car or a Fiat). We arrived at the rental car location and there was a long wait to speak to a representative. When we finally got to the counter, it took them another 20 minutes to locate a car for us and at the end, we got upgraded to the next level since they were out of economy size cars. The car was an older model Toyota Yaris. It was dirty and made squeaking noises when we drove. This was already an upgrade! We even witness a representative yelling at customers when we were waiting for the shuttle. Pay a little more and rent from another company to save time, better service and a clean vehicle.

Budget value - budget service
Pros: Price was great - car was clean and we got a lot for the money. Traveling around Oahu by car was super - gas is cheaper than we thought it would be and it is so easy to get around the island to see all the sights and experience all the wonders of Oahu. Staff was friendly. Shuttle picked us up from the airport and it was a quick jaunt to the rental office.
Cons: Facilities were not the nicest - you are not paying for a big budget car rental company facility. It was disappointing that there was no shuttle back to the airport as we had to make an early flight and the office didn't open until 9 am. Be prepared to call a taxi if you are dropping off early - it worked out fine but it's an extra hassle and expense that it is good to be aware of.

Rent from somewhere else...
Cons: This place is a used car lot that also rents cars. When I saw 'Economy Rent a Car' I thought it was the legit company you see ads for, but this place is actually 'A1 Economy Rent a Car' or something like that. I think they're banking on the fact that their name is similar so people think it's the car company we're expecting. The car was dirty and obviously no care was given to clean the inside either. There were still wrappers in the console from the last person and you could see that nothing had been wiped down. I would rather have spent my money with a good car rental company. It was disappointing. Rent from somewhere else. The car looked and felt old and used.

Terrible customer service
Cons: We arrived with me having paid for the car rental but my boyfriend due to drive the car. Paid $50 for taxi to Avis desk only to get there and be told that I also needed to show my driving licence even though i wasn't driving the car! I didn't have it with me and it would have cost $100 in taxi fares to go back and get it. Called Car Trawler who were no help, nor was the Avis representative. My boyfriend ended up paying ANOTHER $100 to hire the same car we'd already paid to hire. Shocking service, we both work in the travel industry and will never use or recommend Avis or Car Trawler ever again.

Dirty mustang but cheap!
Pros: Tried to sell upgrade for $20 negotiated to $10 for mustang I didn't really want but glad I got. But since I didn't have time to refuel, I got hit harder than a compact car. No biggie, rentalcars.com saved the day with lowest price.

Top tips for hiring 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 hire options, both on and off-site. If you want to rent a car directly from the airport, head to the hire 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 hire 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.

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.

How are gas prices in Honolulu?

Compared to mainland U.S., Honolulu has relatively high petrol prices. The average price of a gallon of petrol is $3.76. When you rent a car from Honolulu International Airport, it’s best to fill up at a local petrol station, away from the inflated prices of the airport pumps.

Where are the best places to park in Honolulu?

Honolulu is known to have some of the most expensive parking rates in the country. As expected, parking can be challenging in the tourist areas of Waikiki Beach; however, if you’re a savvy driver, then there are a few free parking areas to take advantage of. You can leave your car all day in Ala Moana as well as in the Waikiki Shell and Ala Wai Canal area, because of their free unlimited streetside parking. Elsewhere, there are 50 parking lots and garages in Honolulu, which can charge as little as $8 per day.
