Pros:

The service was great!

Cons:

The price of rental cars since Covid is terrible-not sure if the companies are trying to make up for the money lost or additional cleaning has to be done but the cost is ridiculous.

Cons:

Great staff. Got upgraded from a sub-compact to a convertible on my wife’s 50th (without mentioning it). Note: this probably won’t happen to you. That aside, they got us in and out in no time, took COVID protocols seriously. I could not have asked for a better experience.

6.0 Okay

KAYAK

Cons:

Enterprise tried - twice - to charge us for a second driver after assuring us - three times - that there would no charge if the second driver is the renter's spouse and both drivers are on the same insurance policy. Before traveling, we called the rental office to ask if there would be a second-driver charge. We were assured by Megan there would not be. When we picked up the car, Megan assisted us, and assured us once again that there would be no second-driver charge. However, the rental agreement (which we did not review adequately in real time) showed a $435 second-driver charge. We called the rental office to find out what went wrong. Megan was not in, but Jill (the rental-office manager) apologized and assured us that the charge was being removed from our rental agreement. When we returned the car, the final rental agreement/credit card charge once again included the second-driver charge. We complained, and received an adjustment on the spot. But Enterprise's behavior was incompetent at best and blatantly dishonest at worst.

Pros:

Cons:

Specify that this IS NOT the Enterprise at the Honolulu airport. I searched for car rental at the airport and this location came up. There’s 2 Enterprises near the airport. One is the official location with a shuttle, this one was off site and required a cab/Uber/Lyft. Was not happy to discover this after a long travel day.

The vehicle on the website when booking was different to the actual vehicle I was allocated upon pick up. So wasn’t very pleased with this false advertising. Upon pick up the customer service was terrible, the lady at Sixt tried to make it out as if she was being helpful when in actual fact she wasnt. I would never book through Kayak and Sixt again. Highly do not recommend

We had to pay for an extra driver as the kayak/or sixt system would automatically put in that the driver was the person whos name was on the credit card. We weren’t informed of this when booking, and the sixt agent said they could do nothing about this and that it was Kayaks fault and we had to pay more money. We also had to pay more insurance as when we tried to book it said the insurance didn’t work but we didn’t get a chance to cancel the booking we just had to pay more at the counter, again being told “not their fault “. We were ripped off, it was a terrible experience. We will not use again.

May 2021

KAYAK

Pros:

My flight got in late at night. I usually use Enterprise but the airport branch was closed so I took a risk and booked Thrifty. I'm glad it panned out. The staff member was efficient and kind. I feel like given the rental car shortage in Hawaii the price was reasonable. Pick up and drop off was a breeze.

Cons:

When we came to drop off the car, since the lot is both Dollar and Thrifty I wasn't 100% sure where I was supposed to park because all of the signs say Dollar. An un-uniformed man motioned for me to park in a spot then wandered off. Once we unloaded the car he popped back up, collected our rental contract and keys and sent us to the shuttle line. Overall 4.9 out of 5.

4.0 Mediocre

May 2021

Cons:

The wait for pick up was AWFUL. An hour to get the car. No sense of urgency from staff and they were not apologetic for the long wait. The long wait was not unique to the day I picked up because when I returned the following day to drop off the car the lines were just as long.

I booked a car for pick up at 4:30 pm on 5/27/22. The honolulu airport budget seemed to have minimal cars available. I was told that even though I had a pick up time, it was going to be about an hour wait. Given the fact I had dinner plans, I had to cancel the reservation. I booked an Uber instead.

The attitude of the branch manager was horrible. My flight was delayed and when I arrived at the store the next day (but within 24 hours), the car was not kept for me. I tried to contact Hertz multiple times but was not able to get in touch. The manager then asked me to pay $100 extra to get a car. It was by far the worst experience I have had for car rental.

Koapaka St pickup location was about 15 minute walk from Daniel K. Inouye Airport (HNL). Not bad if you know where to go and how to get there. Walk to the Diamond Head end (east) of the terminal, first floor. Follow the street past Dunkin Donuts, and IHOP, or cut across the parking lot of the shopping center across the street, angling NW. Koapaka is the street before Meleluca Store. One option is to leave one person watching the luggage while the one person goes to pick up the car. Took me about 30-45 minutes waiting in line, checking in, and receiving the keys to the car. Dealers choice was a 2021 model with less than 5,000 miles. Overall, good deal for the price if you are willing to walk, catch a taxi, or hook up with a ride sharing company. Either way you are still saving money versus renting a car from the new car rental facility at the airport. Dropping off was faster since there was no one waiting for service.

Pros:

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

Cons:

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.

This location is not at the airport and will cost an extra 100.00 or so to go back and forth to airport. Air conditioner didnt work in the back . So they gave me a $60 credit. Experience was ok but would of rented at airport if known they were 20 minutes away and no transportation to and from location.

I rented a small SUV back in March for June in Honolulu HI. back in March the rental was cheap 250 for 6 days, then the car rental in HI blew up. I was so relieved that I already had my rental reserved. When I got to HI and went to pick up my car they told me that I had my rental pick up set at Wakiki not at the airport. No biggie I took an Uber to pick it up at the address they sent me to, only to find out that it’s been permanently closed since the pandemic. So I called customer support and everyone kept apologizing and saying that they could not help me but they could cancel my reservation. All of them wanted to help me by canceling my reservation. I said absolutely not to this “help” I persisted but they could do nothing for me on that day. Luckily my hotel was not far from the location the Uber had taken us. So now we were forced to walk lugging our luggage for at least a mile. The next day someone was able to help me and I had to take another Uber to pick up a car. Not the one I rented but I was glad to have something to get around in. Not a great experience getting it but ok once I got it. They still made me drop off the car at the new location they sent me to and I had to take another Uber to the airport so another 78 bucks down the drain.

Car battery died (no lights or anything was left on). Was told it would take at least an hour and a half to have emergency assistance come give a boost. Then was told I would have to bring back the rental to the same location for an exchange which was an hour and a half on the other side of the island. They should have allowed me to exchange at a closer location. Wasted about 6 hours of my day because they do not check their cars to make sure they are working properly.

Feb 2018

KAYAK

Pros:

Car 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!

Cons:

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.

Almost 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.

Pros:

That it was cheap.

Cons:

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.

We 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.

Cons:

The car's service light went on for Oil Chage almost immediately after we left with the car and by the time we returned in the afternoon the Add Engine Oil light was on, so while it didn't really impact our drive, I was a little worried by the time we got back.

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.

Car hire insurance in Honolulu

Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) & Theft Protection Waiver

Some Honolulu car providers already include Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) and Theft Protection Waiver into the hire price but not all of them. We recommend always be aware of your coverage when hiring a car in Honolulu.

Deductible

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

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.
  • 25% of our users found a car hire in Honolulu for €32 or less
  • Book your car hire in Honolulu at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Mini car hires in Honolulu are around 73% cheaper than other car types, on average
