Also said we drop off at ala moana Blvd they would give us a ride to pier. Not so!!! $17 taxi ride and time wasted. Not happy with Alamo. Sheila Mills

2.0 Mediocre6 Aug 2020
Cons: We did not get to go on our Hawai’i vacation because of COVID-19. Our flight was canceled. When I tried to cancel my reservation for the car I was told that Thrifty was not refunding any payments made after April 30. Spent 5 days trying to resolve this and gave up! So disappointing!
2.0 Mediocre30 Mar 2020
Pros: NothingCons: They could have refunded our money since we had to cancel for COVID19.
9.6 Excellent25 Mar 2020
Pros: The staff was very friendly and helpful and once at the rental counter it was fast to complete the process. We had rented a compact, but when we got to the car realized it was a hatch and we really wanted a car we cut put our luggage in the trunk and not have it visible. So we went back and asked for a compact with a trunk. They didn't have one, but they did a no-cost upgrade to a full-size car with a trunk. Very thankful to their staff!Cons: Honolulu airport is going through significant changes and the shuttle to get to Thrifty was long and packed full of people. During the time of the COVID-19 pandemic, this was less than ideal. It was also really confusing to drive to when we returned the car. There could have been a few more signs directing us to Thrifty.
9.2 Excellent17 Feb 2020
Pros: Staff was great. Loved the car tooCons: Maybe price was a bit high.
2.0 Mediocre8 Feb 2020
Cons: I booked a car in advance through this app and there were unforeseen charges that more than doubled my price. I never got the car. I was charged by THIS APP for a service I never received and am quite annoyed. Never again
2.0 Mediocre5 Feb 2020
Cons: The woman who assigned the car to me asked if I would like the accept the $40 a day insurance. I declined and added a second driver to the rental which increased the total of the rental by $13 a day. The woman at the counter told me the amount that would be held on my credit card and had me sign for the car and the additional driver. The process seemed smooth enough and she handed me the keys and the agreement to put in the car and said I didn’t even need to do a car inspection and could just leave. I should have known it was too good to be true then. My friend and I got our vehicle and had a great vacation. We returned the rental and I received the email saying the total bill amount, which was different than the amount they emailed when I checked out the vehicle and it stated I had accepted the $40 insurance per day. I called and spoke with a representative and he said I had signed to accept the insurance, and when I told him the woman told me I was signing for the car he said it was my fault for blindly signing. I’m waiting to hear back from a manager to fight this, but be aware that if you rent from Thrifty that their employees are dishonest and will lie to you to get you to sign for something to pay double what the car would normally cost. I will not ever rent from them again.
6.0 Good5 Feb 2020
Pros: Drop off was slightly easierCons: Pick up was disorganized, wait was 40 minutes, poor communication

Pros: Ken Was great to deal with and even offered to drive us to the airportCons: Nothing
7.6 Good13 Feb 2020
Pros: The staff was friendly and helpful.Cons: I looked up the location of a hertz in the airport and this one popped up saying it was in the airport, but this hertz was not located in the airport. It was difficult to find the location of this Hertz while carrying a bunch of luggage with us. It was pretty misleading when this hertz popped up saying it was in the airport.

6.8 Good3 Dec 2019
Pros: Nice cars, good price and great location in the heart of tourist area of Waikiki.Cons: They were not prepared for the customers even though everybody had prior reservations. We waited on the location about 3 hours for a car to be available for us. Poor handling of staff, it was a great mess for dozens of customers.
4.8 Okay22 Sep 2019
Pros: The return process was simple.Cons: This Herz location did not provide shuttle service from the airport, so I was forced to walk 3/4 mile with a hefty amount of luggage. When I arrived early Saturday afternoon, the business was closed. What business allows for reservations at a time in which they are closed?
6.0 Good13 Aug 2019
Pros: The drop off was quick and easy.Cons: The counter at Honolulu seemed understaffed. We waited in line for about 30-45 minutes to pick up our car. The car’s tires had to be filled with air a few times because the low tire pressure sensor kept coming on.

Pros: The pick up and drop off we’re both seemless.Cons: Nothing
6.0 Good30 Nov 2020
Pros: the Staff was ok. But the car had low tire pressure, so we had to pull into a gas station to add air in the tires. It gave us low pressure warning. So that shows they don't really maintain their cars or pay much attention to it.Cons: Please check each car before renting it out. They didn't go over the car with us or anything. Keep the tires in good condition. As well as fluids in the car.
8.0 Excellent30 Nov 2020

8.0 Excellent26 Nov 2020
Pros: The person at the counter needs to be a national trainer for the company. He was extremely professional, courteous and effecient.Cons: A better drop off process.

6.0 Good23 Mar 2020
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.
8.8 Excellent13 Feb 2020
Pros: Helpful, recommended upgrades which we chose to do.Cons: Pick-up wait was over 40 minutes, which happens but other company’s lines shifted faster or had less people. But grateful for the service, thank you!
4.4 Okay29 Jan 2020
Pros: Easy drop offCons: Really aggressive upsell attempts at pickup for better model, insurance, gas. Car was a worn out Kia Optima which felt like a big step down from the Camry pictured when I booked the car. I got the strong impression the agent gave us the worst car he had because we booked through Kayak and refused all the upsells

10.0 Excellent29 Nov 2019
Pros: very easyCons: Not much
5.6 Okay2 Nov 2019
Pros: The girl who checked me in lied and said there were no cars available until my actual scheduled time and if she gave me a car 30 mins early then I would be charged an extra day. Then I went online and booked through Kayak and cancelled my previous reservations then suddenly there was a car available. Without apologizing for her mistake she goes and lied again and said, oh looks like the system just updated, now we have cars again.Cons: Hire more honest employees, and clearly disclosed all surchages. Also have shuttle to pick up at drop off location as it was extremely far having to walk from drop off area all the way back to lobby 2 in terminal 1.
3.6 Mediocre22 Oct 2019
Pros: Drop off was only positive part of experience. Will not rent again with this company.Cons: I reserved a compact or economy twice with advantage and both times got a full size or premium car. Both times they said they were upgrading me when I explicitly said that I preferred a small car. It’s not an upgrade if you are not giving the customer what they asked for. They were pushy about insurance on both occasions, very heavy sales approach.
9.6 Excellent21 Oct 2019
Pros: Staff was fast and helpful. Car was in great condition.Cons: I would probably request a different car if i was offered a camaro convertible ever again. Was like driving a boat with a huge nose.
2.0 Mediocre6 Oct 2019
Cons: Car had multiple dents and scratches, missing floor mats and had an odor.

Pros: Easy drop-offCons: Hard to find, no big visible signs until youre right about to pass it. The car was not clean, dirt and road debris in the frames of the doors and trunk.
2.0 Mediocre19 Dec 2020
Pros: Staff were helpful.Cons: First rental car had the check engine light on and key fob did not work. Traded in for another car. Second cars radio didn’t work and key fob did not work. Poor car options.
2.0 Mediocre7 Dec 2020
Pros: No the staff is not very friendly and helpful. If you like nightmares and bad, nasty service, choose this place. The only thing that is acceptable is the price. But it's better to pay more than to use this place. They get no star....Cons: The pickup was only okay. The lady was about to give us a VERY DIRTY minivan, until I looked into another one and requested it. Cats were everywhere!! The shuttle took us on a long route, to get to the car, which should have taken about 7 minutes. She took 20 minutes. The drop-off was horrible. The place closed at 7, but the website said 10 pm. The guy in customer service was the most rude human being ever encountered in any business ever.. He actually called us ignorant. He also hung up in our face and yelled at us. It was a nightmare twilight zone experience. Please do not use this ugly dirty rental car place if you can at all help it. It's better to walk or even crawl to wherever you're going than to be treated like trash. the only thing that made it acceptable is the price. however, had I known what the experience was going to be like, I would have definitely paid more money for a better places. It's the nastiest, dirtiest, grimiest place I've ever been to. And the people who work there attitude was almost just as nasty, especially the guy.
2.0 Mediocre6 Dec 2020
Pros: I was not picked up from the airport. The company closed at 7pm and my flight came in at 10:00pm. I was forced to rent another car to get to my hotel
4.0 Okay3 Dec 2020
Pros: Drop off was easy. However, they charged an extra cleaning fee even though the car was throughly cleaned prior to drop off.Cons: Hidden and extra fees. Car had mechanical issues.
6.4 Good24 Nov 2020
Pros: Good price, big carCons: We were forced to pay a cleaning fee because there was some sand in the car. We're in Honolulu and that is considered 'excessive' thus a $90 extra charge!
6.0 Good23 Nov 2020
Pros: The car was fine and the drop-off was quick.Cons: Beware their apparently low prices! It's a bait and switch. When you book online you get a low price with a cheap third party insurance. When you get there, they tell you that you can't drive off the lot without cancelling the third party insurance and buying theirs, which brings the total price up to match their competitors. The agent I dealt with acted like this was some annoying glitch of booking online, but everything that followed suggested that this was the business model. I realized what had happened after reading many other reviews on Google afterwards, seeing that they do this routinely. Wish I would have known! The place is in the middle of industrial nowhere, so once you're their you don't really have another option unless you want to pay for an expensive cab ride.

Pros: Staff at both the desk and up in the rental garage were awesome. We received an amazing upgrade which enhanced our day's driving experience!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.

Pros: Friendly, quick pick-up/drop offCons: First car smelled bad and I had to switch. I also was upgraded to car but that car (jeep wrangler) had no charger for cell phone or bluetooth. So it was a nicer car but with less amenities.
6.4 Good8 Sep 2019
Pros: The drop off was easy and quick. The car was clean for the most part. Drove fine.Cons: When we arrived to pick up the car we waited in line for the desk for an hour. Then we went upstairs and proceeded to wait another one hour 45 minutes. So altogether we waited 2 hours 45 minutes. And the waiting area was 90 degrees because it was outside.

6.4 Good8 Jul 2019
Pros: The young man at the Avis counter made every effort to make a bad situation better after we were told that we could not have the car that we had a confirmation for and that we had actually reserved a smaller car. He said that we would have to take it up with KAYAK in order to get it resolved.Cons: KAYAK and Avis need to interact better to be sure that he car that is reserved on the KAYAK site is what you will get and pay for when the car is rented and picked up.
4.0 Okay11 Dec 2018
Not like the old AvisCons: I 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.
8.0 Excellent20 Oct 2018
Cons: The line at pick-up was a bit long. I think the computers weren't working, but it took way longer than it should have. The care was pretty scratched up when we got it, but the inside was very comfortable and clean.

Pros: Price was good.Cons: 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.

Top tips for renting 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.

  • Book your rental car in Honolulu at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price

  • On average a rental car in Honolulu costs AED 6,011 per month (AED 200 per day).

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.
