Good counter experience but when we got to the lot we were just thrown out and told to pick any one car in a certain area. Most cars had people already sitting in them. No help around.

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.

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 Okay29 Oct. 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"

We had to take an Uber to get to their lot since this Hertz isn’t the same as the one at the airport. Once we checked in, we waited almost 30 minutes for our car to be ready. We were the only customers there so why wasn’t the car ready to go when we got there? The lot is small but full with cars and ALL of them should be ready to drive away after you check in.

Associate lied about reimbursing me for gas. She gave me the vehicle on empty and told me she will compensate for whatever I added on. Upon return she did no such thing. Do not go to the Hertz in Honolulu regardless of better price. Do the hertz inside the airport instead.

Got a great car at a great price, however it is a mile to the airport from their location and we don't use uber or lyft and the clerk at the counter was not helpful about calling a taxi etc A sweet Christian lady gave us both a ride within a minute of our treck towards the airport so it all worked out. Jesus sent an angel to transport His children.

This is a small rental location so had to wait for car to get gassed up down the street. It is about a mile from the terminal but is considered off property so doesn’t offer a shuttle to the airport. You can walk to the airport, which we did, but it was a bit confusing. I would Uber it if doing it again. That said, staff was friendly and efficient and I got a great rental price.

Ralph from the checkout counter at the Honolulu airport bailed us out big time! Even though we had thought we'd rented from the airport, it turns out our reservation was for Hertz in Waikiki. Thinking we would have to take a taxi from the airport after our 14-hour trip from Ohio, Ralph was able to work some "magic" to make sure we received a car AND give us a good deal to boot. Being our first time visiting Hawaii, I cannot stress how amazing his Aloha spirit was, making us feel not only welcome, but essentially treating us as VIPs! Awesome, first-rate experience all-around! Kudos!

Sixt was the only rental service closed when I arrived. Flight was delayed and they closed at 11pm. All other "large" services were still open. 2 taxis back and forth from the airport, a lost day paying for a car I didn't have. To top it off, Sixt blamed Kayak, Kayak said it was Sixt fault and I'm stuck in the middle holding the bag. ALWAYS read the fine print and book with the bigger guys vs. trying to save a few coins.

Car wasn't ready for pick up even though I made the reservation 2 months prior. Was told 4 times that my Kayak reservation was for a vehicle that wasn't in their local inventory. Then, the manager tried to upsell me to a Merc for about $200 more, a special discount just for me. It took about 5 attempts before the agent finally understood that I wasn't going to pay a dime more. Waited about an hour to get a vehicle, which turned out to be the Merc that was offered for extra money. The whole transaction felt a little slimy. Never had that happen before, and I've rented from all the other Honolulu airport rental companies. The drop off with Suzy was friendly and efficient. But, I was still charged another $50 with no explanation. Probably not using Sixt again.

Absolute garbage company and would not recommend. We had to cancel our trip to Hawai’i because of COVID & the state governor asking tourists not to visit, and Sixt charged us $100 even though we canceled 6+ weeks ahead of schedule. So not only were we overcharged for a rental car but we were still charged after canceling our reservation with more than enough notice. We are in a global pandemic and for a business like Sixt to behave this way is unacceptable.

I had selected to pickup that car rental from the airport and instead it somehow assigned meto pick up the rental from Waikiki. I had to pay for a cab to go and pick up the rental. I called both Kayak/Priceline and Thrifty to complain and neither took responsability but rather pointed the finger at each other. I asked to change the return location to the airport and again Kayak and Thrifty said they could not do it and again pointed the responsability on each other and neither help. So again I ended up paying for a tácito táleme to the airport. I complained about having to pay for a ride that I should not have to and asked for some credit from the rental and again No help at all. They didn’t even try.

Buyer beware: I was so disappointed because they inflated the cost so much. My rental came to $200.00 per day. We paid for a compact car. We waited in the heat for 2 hours, and they did not honor my printed document. Something about rounding up the price to a weekly rate. The price was so high I had to ask my adult daughter to put down her credit card. She is 24 and 10 months. They changed the reservation to her name and charged an additional $179.00. She does not drive when we are in Hawaii, not even once. I am from Hawaii and I have never been so disappointed in my people. They took gouging to a new level. I am still going to dispute the $179.00. The one bright spot was. the excellent shuttle driver, Alex. What an absolute joy and professional employee. A credit to the agency.

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.

Thieves. They run a scam and Kayak or anyone else shouldn’t do business with them. If you look at reviews, they routinely add charges on after the rental period is done with no explanation why. I just received a $60 charge with no reasoning and once I looked at their recommendations, I’m far from the only person to have this happen to. Besides the scam on the money side of things, the cars are unsafe. Bald tires and self belts that didn’t retract, I doubt any of their cars would pass inspection besides with a paid off inspection shop. Check engine light came on 3 days after getting the car with only having driven a few miles. I called the rental agency and they said it was normal and to “deal with it”. Car had a hard time starting and when I returned the car, I mentioned this and the worker checking it in scoffed and said ‘I’m not surprised, they’re all like that here’. Please do not rent from here, unless you want to have your vacation ruined.

Not like the old AvisI 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.

Budget have us a car with bad brakes. We paid extra for a nicer car but instead had a scary car that sounded like a rust bucket every time I tapped the brakes. Will never let this happen to me in again.

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!

Shuttle hours to terminal weren’t convenient. Got accused of parking the car into a curb when I dropped the car off when they sent me the invoice. Prices are cheap but you pay for what you get.

Car hire excess insurance in Honolulu

Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) & Theft Protection Waiver

Collision damage waiver and theft protection are insurance options that cover renters from paying high penalty fees if the car is stolen or returned damaged. Some Honolulu car providers already include Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) and Theft Protection Waiver into the rental price but not all of them. We recommend always be aware of your coverage when renting a car in in Honolulu.

Deductible

Keep in mind that car hire excess insurances often have a deductible clause, which is the amount you’ll have to pay if something happens during the time of your rental. If you want to avoid unwanted surprises, you should consider adding a no-deductible option to your Honolulu car rental.

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.
