Anyone planning a trip to the Hawaiian Island of O’ahu needs to consider ground transportation upon landing at the Honolulu International Airport. One of the most popular modes of transportation in Hawaii is a rental car. With a rental car, Hawaiian visitors are able to drive around the island and take in all the sights, instead of relying on a car service or cab to drive them on sightseeing tours. There are a number of car rental companies at the Honolulu International Airport to make renting a car as convenient as possible for visitors.
There are 10 rental car agencies that provide rentals at the Honolulu International Airport. Of the 10 rental car agencies at the airport, six are located in the airport and four are located near the airport. The six located in the airport are Hertz, National, Budget, Dollar, Enterprise and Avis. Each of the rental car agencies is located in the baggage claim area of the airport.
Alamo, A-1 Rent A Car, Advantage, and Thrifty Rent-A-Car are all located away from the airport. There are shuttles available to visitors who want to rent from one of these agencies. Each shuttle is marked with the name of the rental car agency, and it picks up passengers outside of the baggage claim area every few minutes. When travelers return their rental cars, the same shuttles will return passengers to the airport. The ride to each off the off-site rental car agencies takes only a few minutes.
Each rental car agency offers a variety of rental cars for travelers to choose from. Since it is Hawaii, one of the most popular types of rental car is the convertible. Additionally, there are coupes, sedans, small SUVs, large SUVs, trucks, and minivans available to rent. Travelers who want to ensure they receive a specific type of rental car should book their rental as far in advance as possible so that the rental agency has one in stock for them to take.
