The car was available and worked great the whole trip. However, it took a very long time to check in, find a car and leave when we picked up. I was not picky at all. The car they decided to give me changed 3 times before I could leave. Then it turned out that the person who sent me off with the car didn’t complete the paperwork properly, so I had to wait in the office for someone to fix it and print me a receipt. Not the end of the world, but not the smoothest experience I’ve had, by far.

When I went to pick up the car at the Lihue Airport on Kauai on Sunday October 10th at 1:30 PM HST, the Alamo staff screwed up the contract three times. They first failed too hand me a written contract before sending me to find the car. Then, they took 20 minutes to come up with a contract with $1,877 estimated total charges, which was roughly $500 higher than the correct total of $1,344 based on the reservation I had made on line at Alamo{s website over a month earlier. After I pointed out the error, they took another 20 minutes to produce a contract showing $2,880 estimated total charges! I then asked the Alamo staff to let me speak to their manager. He acknowledged the series of errors and apologized for the long delay, and took another 15 minutes to produce a contract with $1,366 in estimated total charges. By that point, my family and I had been sitting in the car at the exit gate. A few hours later,I discovered that they had put both a $2,880 and a $1,877 pending charge on my credit card. When I attempted to call several times between 3:30 and 4 PM for an explanation, I was unable to have my calls answered by a live person rather than recordings, none of which provided an option to talk to someone about a billing issue. I finally reached someone at Alamo{s national 800 numbers, who promised to have an answer from a live person at Alamo{s airport se tal office call me in the morning. The person who called me understood the problem but explained that the $2,880 pending charge had been removed, but said he couldn’t correct the other $1,877 pending charge without deleting the old contract and creating a new one. I had him confirm that he had put a note in your system about the error, and guaranteed that I would not be charged more than $1,344 as long as I returned the car on time without any damage. About 24 hours later, both pending charges had been removed from my credit card, and I was indeed charged only $1,344 when I returned the car at approximately 10:15 AM on Sunday October 20th. Although everything worked out in the end, I am still dumbfounded by the inability of the seemingly completely inexperienced and incompetent Alamo staff at Lihue Airport that day (except for the manager) to produce a contract that was correct and conformed to the reservationI had made on-line over a month earlier.

The pick-up and drop-off was very easy. The staff was friendly, and so far, I have not seen any surprise charges. Although I wish the full price were cheaper, it was the cheapest option I had found in Lihue. Will definitely use Alamo again!

Picking up the car was great. Got an upgrade and very friendly staffWhen I returned the car I was late (my fault) and the gas station along the way was closed. I returned the car with 78 miles and was charged 50$ claiming it took over 9 gallons to fill up. Then they triple charged me taxes on the daily charges and my couple hour mistake cost me over 160$. There really should be a half day rate for lates returns and not gouge me a full day at top dollar. My two day prepaid was 115$, my 2.5 hours was 160$....... and I’m a resident of Hawaii visiting another island to see my kids. Will not use them again lol

The location was really close to the airport but the wait to get to the counter was over 1 hour. We wasted valuable time just waiting in line. Because the length of the line was so long we were forced to stand outside for 20 minutes and the weather was really hot and humid. Wish there were a few self check-in kiosks. On top of the over 1hr wait to get to the counter, we waited another 30 minutes for someone to fetch the car. The customer service were great though! The rep at the counter was very accommodating and answered all of our questions and gave us local tips.

Prebooked our car online but when we arrived to the rental center the associate tried to pressure us into reserving a more expensive vehicle and told us we needed to buy the full coverage. We explained our credit card came with rental insurance and he pretended he had never heard of such a thing. It took us over an hour to get our car and he ended up charging $950 for a $450 rental. Will be disputing with our credit card company if the charges are not sorted out once it’s post pending.

They need more staff at Budget and staff was very rude. Never had an experience like that in 9 trips to HI. They supposedly upgraded the car from a compact to a Camaro convertible. The car rode like a truck even though it had 10,000 miles on it. The prices were extremely high for rentals as well. Not a good experience.

Hertz needs a better workflowThe car was fine. The staff is very reasonable and friendly given the challenge at the Lihue-Kauai location.The shuttle buses are too small to accommodate the demand after a flight arrives, so you may have to wait several shuttles to get onboard and to the rental car location. Once there, the line is slow--- not uncommon for rental agencies, but one would think they could figure this out. Most damning, After waiting in line for the rental car and getting the paperwork finalized, we had to wait another half hour for the car to be ready. They said it was being cleaned. We waited with another 40 people. There has got to be a better way to run this location. There's either a management problem or a shortage of employees.
2.0 Mediocre13 Aug. 2017
Terrible rental in Kauai-avoid Hertz!The car was fine but the experience of picking it up in Kauai was so miserable I don't think I would ever use Hertz again. We were told there were no cars when we arrived at the lot. A smug agent informed people that the agreement was for a car sometime that day and not at any particular time. What a way to start your vacation in paradise. It took a long time before they even would predict when a car might be available. Then I was told a car was on the lot but I would need to wait for it to be cleaned. Inconsiderate and incompetent service. A large group of really unhappy customers basically begging to take any car they could find. No apologies.See above.

Our family was very hungry so we were able to convince them to let us take the car dirty.

The drop-off attendant was very friendly and helpful, and got us checked out quickly.The counter person (at pick-up), was not very friendly, and was difficult to understand. I wasn't given the opportunity to inspect the car - he just handed be empty damage assessment tried to get rid of me. When I insisted on the inspection, he tore off the top page of the form, so there would be no duplicate, and sent me off to fill it out on my own. The car, not the one we we ordered, was well-worn, with lots of chips and scratches and tiny dents, so I filled the card completely. When I brought it back in to verify the issues, he tried to send me away again. But when I complained that there was no official record of the existing damages, he put his initials on the form I had, claiming that would be enough, and waved me off again. Once he'd gotten my credit card info, and had given me the keys, he only seemed interested in trying to get rid of me. Not at all a pleasant experience.
6.0 Good15 Jun. 2021
The drop off was super easy.Understaffing at the counter meant that we waited in line for two hours to pick the car. To cover up the fact that they did not have the compact car that we reserved they pushed us to take a convertible with no rear folding seats so we could not fit a surf board in the car. The agent did not mention this even when we asked if a surfboard would fit in the car.

I liked the ease of pick up; I was allowed to go out and choose any car on a particular row that was in the category I had reserved. I wasn't given any high-pressure treatment, trying to get me to upgrade to something I didn't need or buy an unnecessary insurance policy Then it was just a matter of looking the car over for any scratches and proceeding out to our destination. The return was equally straightforward. I applaud the company for this most appreciated streamlined approach!

The process was very speedy.We did not get the type of car we ordered but nevertheless were happy with the rental company overall.

Worked Out WellThe pickup and drop off were so easy. Everyone was lovely The car worked well and was clean. All good.The price. But i think it was actually reasonable given the prices in Kauai and probably better than most.

It did save us money......but was it worth it. The van only had basic features. No A/C in back, no automatic rear doors, minimal driver controls. Battery on key fob went out. Very nice people working there.

Stay awayThe people were friendly and helpfulWe rented a minivan from this place. It was the lowest line of the minivan and old. I was surprised it had automatic windows. No air conditioning in the back. We hoped to save some money, thinking all rental agencies were the same. We were wrong. We ended up spending more money on an inferior product cuz they charged us to have an extra driver, where most places will allow you to include your spouse. The car was falling apart. the lining inside was coming down and one of the interior lights kept falling down too. Halfway thru the trip (we were there for a week), the unlock button on the remote stopped working. Luckily the key fob was new enough to have an actual key in the remote fob. So, we had to unlock the door manually everytime from that point on. Overall, it was a mediocre experience. I wouldn't use this company again.

Top tips for hiring a car in Lihue

  • Kauai has limited public transportation so if you are visiting, a hire car is really important. First, you’ll need a car to get around to restaurants, shops, and grocery stores. Additionally, numerous beaches and some of the more popular attractions like Waimea Canyon, Grove Farm, and Kauai Museum are a good distance from most hotels and resorts.
  • Visiting Hawaii is a dream vacation for many. Kauai’s capital city, Lihue, is home to the largest and the most popular airport in the state. If flying into the Daniel K. Inouye International Airport, you’ll enjoy many conveniences, including six on-site hire car companies. The hire car offices are located outside of baggage claim. Access to other hire car agencies is also possible via a shuttle.
  • In Kauai there are lots of bicyclists and pedestrians. While driving, you’ll need to keep an eye out for them. Additionally, note that there are some one-lane bridges on the island. Read up on one lane bridge etiquette before driving on one to be prepared.
  • If you live in a big city, you’ll feel as though there is little to no rush hour in Lihue. However, the busiest traffic time in Lihue starts in the morning at about 7 a.m., when residents are headed to work, and continues through around 8:30 a.m. The evening commute begins a little earlier than in most other cities (around 3:30 p.m.) and continues to about 6 p.m.
