Pros: Guys at the pick up location were so friendly and kind.
2.0 Mediocre9 Apr 2021
Pros: Staff was rude. Calling into thrifty abs Priceline was uselessCons: Everything. I called a head to notify thrifty I would be late due to flight delays. They told me they would have the car in the morning. Upon arrival they gave away our car. They then gave us one class below what we rented without any compensation
2.0 Mediocre7 Apr 2021
Pros: No, they could not speak good enough English to understand them! Poor instructions!Cons: Csr rental return explained better and address was hard to find
8.0 Excellent28 Mar 2021
Pros: I liked that the staff was friendly. I liked that the car was clean.Cons: The problem is that the hours of operation of the rental car facility was 8-4pm. My flight got delayed, so I did not arrive until 7pm that night which caused me to miss my car rental pickup. When I came back next day, they told me that the car I rented, which was any available, was not available. The only thing available was a ford mustang, which was 250 dollars more for my rental.

2.0 Mediocre25 Mar 2021
Pros: The whole experience was ruined by you... not informing me that the car was 30 min from the airport. When I got on the Thrifty shuttle at the airport, I showed the driver the address I was given, and he said that location was closed. The location where he dropped us off had a 1 hour wait, and when we finally arrived at the desk, they told us we were at the wrong location, and would not provide us transportation to the correct location, which they informed us closes in 40 minutes. I then had to drag my wife and three children in an Uber for $50 to the correct location, worrying the whole time that they may be closed. When I a exited the Uber, I had to leave my wife and children behind to actually RUN to get there before closing in 2 minutes. This put a bad taste for the rest of the whole vacation. Then I also had to pay $50 to get back the airport after returning the car, so it actually cost me about $100 more than I agreed to, negating the reason I used Thrifty, for value. Thrifty ruined my vacation.Cons: The whole experience was ruined by you... not informing me that the car was 30 min from the airport.

8.0 Excellent23 Mar 2021
Pros: Pickup was easy.Cons: Price was $2,500 OVER the estimated charge when I dropped off car. The woman checking in the car did not know why. After I had mistakenly paid and told her the situation all she could say was "too late now!" Wouldn't you check the amount to see if it was accurate BEFORE checking in the vehicle? Luckily I went into the front office and they corrected the error.
4.0 Okay19 Mar 2021
Pros: Drop off was quick and smooth. Agent was friendly.Cons: Pickup took too long. Agent spent too long trying to upsell and we weren’t interested and expressed such. Then, the car we were assigned looked like it had been washed with sandpaper. It was clear the car had been abused. Top was clunky and interior was dirty. Will not rent from this company again.
10.0 Excellent4 Mar 2021
Pros: Staff was very friendly, everything went great :)
2.0 Mediocre2 Mar 2021
Cons: Shortage of staff. Line was over an hour, and by time I got to the front of the line, there were no cars available for rental. It ruined my vacation day. Its was terrible to loose vacation day. Terrible. Never again.

10.0 Excellent2 Apr 2021
Pros: Staff is really friendly and upgrade our car.Cons: We don't notice that the pick up area is not in the airport, which is different to the arrow sign of Hertz Rental location. So we took uber to the real location where we thought it is far away from airport because the staff in the airport told us need to take ~10 mins by car. however, it only took least than 3 mins, even uber driver is surprised to the distance and asking us why we need to took a uber for this short distance.
4.0 Okay2 Apr 2021
Pros: No shuttle, long checking procedureCons: Need to have shuttle, need more orangized
6.0 Good1 Apr 2021
Cons: I should have been notified in advance that my boarding pass and proof of my negative COVID test on paper were required at pickup. In the email I received nothing was mentioned about this and it was a huge obstacle for having a smooth pickup. Most of my stuff was still with my husband and all four of our kids while i had gone by myself to pickup the van. This Hertz is NOT located in the airport but is too close for any of the taxis to want to take me there so I had to walk all the way. They also tried to scam me with not getting rental insurance on the vehicle. I called my husband about as he’s rented cars more than me, and if you currently have auto insurance on a car you own it WILL cover the rental. Very disappointed in the whole pickup situation but other than that the vehicle worked well and was a decent price.
10.0 Excellent23 Mar 2021
Pros: The guy running the show was crazy busy, and we watched him handle a difficult customer totally professionally.Cons: I guess they had a system error and had rented out too many cars. We had to wait over an hour for one to be made ready for us.

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.

2.0 Mediocre4 Apr 2021
Cons: Drop off was great ... fast, friendly and helpful. Pick up was a mess. Long lines, unorganized, people upset and cutting line, people cutting to front not asked to go back line so then other people decide to cut. Probably 20 or more in line and only 1 to two people checking us in. When I finally made it attendant wasn’t very nice and they didn’t have car I reserved, said it would be a long wait. She said she would give me a higher priced rental for same price..I took it and looked it up later, she had lied...it was a lower priced car. One of the worst customer services experiences I’ve ever had.
2.0 Mediocre2 Apr 2021
Pros: -Cons: Staff did not fix car problems properly - (car needEd windshield fluid & an oil change but they refused, & just put water instead. Also misleading discussion of pricing. A lot of pressure to upsell me. Staff Refused to adjust the reservation. I will never use dollar or thrifty again.
8.0 Excellent31 Mar 2021
Pros: Great price. Great location.Cons: I found a few fast food trash items left in the car from the previous users. Also, better driving directions to the rental office would have been very helpful. The entrance is located on a separate side street, not the street of the 'address'.
8.0 Excellent30 Mar 2021
Pros: They gave a free AAA car category upgrade.Cons: They had laid off too many clerks, and only one desk clerk had to service over 30 customers - we waited 2.5 hours in line to get a car. She was amazing. Someone needs to tell the company to hire back more desk clerks, the tourism is picking up in Hawaii.
2.0 Mediocre30 Mar 2021
Cons: Covid restriction wouldnt let me travel even though negative test result. No refund and no reschedule.Thanks for taking my money for no service.Terrible!!!
2.0 Mediocre29 Mar 2021
Pros: When I was renting the suv online, I specifically asked for 6 people. When I got there, they were giving me an suv for 5 people. I had to pay extra $40/dayCons: I specifically put 6 people for the suv. It would’ve helped if kayak gave me what I asked for on the search. This could avoid confusion and miscommunication
8.0 Excellent26 Mar 2021
Pros: The staff was friendly and helpful and pick up and drop off was easy and fast.Cons: I wish they had flying cars. Or at least cars with spy features. Like oil slick and remote driving.

8.0 Excellent2 Mar 2021
Pros: Staff was friendly. Check in process was fast and easy. No issues with the car.Cons: Only thing was that they did not have scratch & dent forms on hand and was told to just take pictures of scratches I found. Prior experience has taught me that this comes back to haunt me, other than that all was well.

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

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 Mediocre12 Apr 2021
Pros: Did not like anything. I would never use them again.Cons: The car was dirty, the car registration was out of date and expired September 2020. The shuttle never came to the airport for over and hour and when we finally talked to them and said we needed a shuttle they hung up on us. Once we got to the rental car location there were 2 parties in front of us and we waited around 1.5 hours to get the keys because the admin process was so slow. The car was disgusting, ants crawled out of random places every time we were in the car. We wiped it down with alcohol wipes for Covid reasons and they were black. Absolutely horrible. They informed us if we didn’t accept their insurance policy if we were In a wreck they would refuse working with any other insurance and we had to pay everything. Rude, slow, dirty, illegal (car registration). I can’t believe Kayak allows people to book this company
2.0 Mediocre12 Apr 2021
Pros: Pickup vans seemed to run frequently.Cons: I had to switch vehicles because the original 8 year old 2013 Passat had multiple issues. Who tennis out cars that old? The second vehicle was better but still had almost 70,000 obviously hard miles on it. It was pretty beat up with a very worn interior. Maybe they also have great newer cars, but that was not my experience.
2.0 Mediocre8 Apr 2021
Pros: NothingCons: It’s a scam! The rental company charged me an extra amount and they said nasty words when I called to ask about additional charge!!
2.0 Mediocre8 Apr 2021
Pros: Worst experience renting a car in my 40 years of driving. Would highly recommend going anyplace else no matter how much more expensive it is . This place should be removed from your websiteCons: Everything from the shuttle (which takes an hour) to the car itself. To the lack of customer service I don’t know where to begin. Just stay away I wish I would have
6.0 Good1 Apr 2021
Pros: I had a 8:00 a.m. flight and the company shuttle did not start until 8:00 a.m.. The only alternative was to take an Uber to the airport. Suggest this be revealed before booking.Cons: The process fir picking up the car was slow. Also, the gas was a 7/8th of a tank, even though I was instructed to bring the car back full.
4.0 Okay23 Mar 2021
Pros: The lady that helped us when we picked up the van was helpful and friendly.Cons: The location of the lot was not ideal. There was a shuttle to and from the airport during business hours, but we had to find our own transportation on our return flight in the morning. Our van was older 75,000+ miles, dingy, and smelly. When we returned it, we were charged a cleaning fee for sand and food in the vehicle. Yes there was sand from our week of stay and play in Hawaii, but again the van wasn’t that clean to start with. I’m wasn’t aware of food left in the vehicle. There were a couple of empty fountain drink cups and a couple unopened plastic bottles of water and Gatorade that we thought someone could use since we couldn’t take them through airport security. When I called to ask about the charges ($52) the guy I talked to said they were for cleaning, but then said I should be thankful they weren’t higher and was defensive and rude about it. I didn’t think there was an excessive amount of sand, but if that’s their policy I would have liked to have known beforehand. I’ve rented cars in Hawaii before and haven’t had a problem. Our friends rented from Hertz and had at least as much sand if not more in their vehicle and weren’t charged, and they are located right at the airport. So beware, their prices are good, but you get what you pay for, and it might end up costing you more.

Cons: Newer cars. Better Renting experience, better selection
2.0 Mediocre18 Mar 2021
Cons: First Rental car was filthy. We were able to swap it out for a different car in the same class, thankfully. Never received email of rental agreement, called to confirm email address and still never received rental agreement. All 4 tires had low pressure, we had to fill at the gas station. There was one shuttle back to the airport, and many people waiting for a ride. We left plenty of time but the wait was so long, we cut it very close to our departure. Would never rent with Priceline or Economy or the k***k site again.
6.0 Good18 Mar 2021
Pros: Staff very friendly and helpful. Easy to swap out a car that which had broken A/C. I Wish I booked directly through the company so I could’ve made changes in person for discounts. Staff was also very expeditious.Cons: Ordered a full size but got a mid size- I guess all of Hawaii consider Nissan Altima and Chevy Malibu type cars to be full size. The website did say expect Nissan Altima or similar, I just assumed that was full size because that’s what I selected and paid for. Seems like Hawaii full size is different than mainland full-size. The website also said it was at the airport. I should’ve looked up the address because it’s actually a 6-9 minute drive from the airport, but they did offer shuttle service. Overall I felt like there was some false marketing,
2.0 Mediocre18 Mar 2021
Pros: NothingCons: They gave us a shitty car without proper audio functions or USB functions. Barely clean.

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.

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.
