Car rental alternatives in Honolulu, HI

Volcanic highs
in Honolulu

Take a deep breath and relax into your island life. Honolulu is a city with plenty to do, but nobody is out to do it in a hurry.

So take your time reveling in the natural beauty, perfect beaches, fresh seafood, and tons of outdoor activities. When you’re over the crowds, book a Honolulu car rental alternative to head out of the city and find a quieter side of Oahu.

Honululu Favorites

Nobody goes to Hawaii to hang around inside all day, and the best activities in Honolulu take you out into the abundance of natural beauty. Whether you’re looking for an active challenge or serious lounge session, Honolulu is your paradise.

Diamond Head

The best views of Waikiki, Honolulu, and all of Oahu are all yours when you do the 1.6 mile climb to the top of this dormant volcano. Ambitious hikers might even catch a glorious sunrise.


This bustling Honolulu area is famous for a reason: beautiful beachfront, resorts, hula shows, surf lessons, ABC stores, fireworks — everything a tourist could ask for in one fell swoop.

Hanauma Bay

For the ultimate snorkel experience, steer your Honolulu car rental alternative to the south end of the city, and swim with a wild flurry of tropical fish and sea turtles.

Excellent process and very easy to work with. Highly recommend! Way better than car rental companies!!

This is the best car renting alternative for Hawaii. Pick up and Drop off was much more convenient for HNL Airport, way better than commercial car rental set ups. Rental cars in Hawaii are easily spotted and made targets for theft (Im from there so I know) so having a local looking vehicle can make a difference while visiting the islands. Drivers were on time, car was clean and ran great. Definitely recommend to anyone looking for car rental on Oahu.

Loved the car and rental experience. Would definitely do again.

Skip the rental car counter

Hit the road

The best way to see all of the sides of Oahu is to book a Honolulu car rental alternative on Turo, so you can beat traffic early, and explore the mountains and beaches at your own speed.

Waimea Bay

In the winter, famous surfers compete here and it’s a show you won’t soon forget. In the summer, the calm waters are perfect for swimmers who want to take it easy.


About a 40 minute drive north in your Honolulu car rental alternative will take you to Kaneohe with two great waterfall hikes, a farm with fresh poi, and the serene Valley of the Temples.

Kaena Point

Head out in your Honolulu car rental alternative on this hour-long drive to hike Oahu’s oldest volcano, check out the island’s rugged, wind-swept beach, and maybe even spot an endangered monk seal.

George picked us up and dropped us off flawlessly, the car ran perfectly, and was large enough for five of us to travel comfortably. I saved hundreds of dollars by choosing Turo over any of the other car rental companies I looked at.

Ana was super nice and even dropped off the car super early in the morning for us to use. Car runs smooth and was easy to drive as well. Her husband picked up the car since I let them know we actually could return it a little early and he was a cool and friendly guy too. Would recommend if you need a quick car rental in Honolulu.

The pickup and drop off experience felt a little sketchy, but overall this was a smooth and easy car rental. I would definitely rent a car from Shamsul again if visiting Honolulu.

This was our first time using Turo and it was a great experience. I would definitely rent from Adam again, he made the process very easy and we had zero issues. It definitely beats renting from the major car rental companies.

I've never used Turo before...Shamsul made their company shine! He was so easy to work with, very flexible, very accommodating-- even giving extra recommendations about places to eat and being available for any other questions we had. He was willing to get the car to us at the airport or anywhere. I would way rather rent a car from Shamsul than go through a traditional car rental company!
Susan C. - August 4, 2019

Great experience with this different type of car rental service. I like the fact we got picked up from the airport, dropped the driver back to HQ, and off we go on our Hawaiian vacation. No car rental lines to wait. Shams is the best and communication was the key. Every time I sent a message, he would reply as soon as possible. Mahalo Shams!

My experience with Andrew and his Yaris confirm all the positive reviews I'd read. He was super friendly and supportive with info--even with tips on traveling Oahu--and was flexible with the details on the pick-up and drop-off of his vehicle. His Toyota Yaris is reliable with good AC, fuel efficient, and served our driving needs perfectly. I'd recommend you combining his vehicle with his AirBnB if you're looking for a place in residential Honolulu. The one thing I'd do differently is to properly plan my trip back to the city after returning the vehicle, as I had some trouble getting a cab. But overall, a great car rental experience which enhanced our vacation! Thanks, Andrew!

This car rental changed our trip for the better! You really see a different side of the island when you can drive yourself around without the limitations of tours. The pick up and drop off service made our arrival and departure so smooth. Every interaction with Anthony and co. was so friendly and easy. The entire experience was enjoyable and easy! Thanks!

Francesco's BMW i3 (EV) and service was excellent. We enjoyed our stay in Hawaii and would certainly book it again. Turo, in general, is a great contribution to travel; legacy car rental companies cannot provide this level of choice and user-friendliness. Thank you!

Adam was great! We arrived in Honolulu around 5 PM the day we planned on renting the car. With no hesitation Adam was very accommodating. We had to wait a while at baggage claim :[ , but Adam ensured that this was no problem. This really made our trip stress free. Anyways, now about the car it was AMAZING. We drove all over Oahu with the top down and sunglasses on. This was my first time every using TURO as well. If everyone is like Adam then I have no problem using this app again and cutting out on the rental cars from enterprise, hentz etc.

First time using Turo and best car rental experience ever. Shamsul was accommodating. We had lots of questions, not only didnt he answer them he was quick to respond. We saved money using their parking spot (conveniently located next to our resort valet would have been $40 a night). Uncle Daron no ka oi, he picked us up from our resort, brought us to the parking structure to show us where to park and told us local places to eat at. Then when we did the drop off, they provided us with a ride to the airport and once again Uncle Daron dropped us off and was the first to congratulate us on our engagement. I would highly recommend them! They even showed up early when we messaged them that our plans had changed. BEST CAR RENTAL IN OAHU!

Ally and Andrew are truly the best! The vehicle was perfect for my group of 4 people. We traveled to the west side of island from their place multiple times throughout our trip without any complications. It was comfortable and much cheaper than renting through a car rental place. Thank you for everything again - Matt and Thuy

Kelly was amazing! Very friendly and helpful. Car runs great and got great gas mileage. Next time I rent a car on turo, it will be from Kelly. Her cars are close to waikiki, so perfect if your visiting! Affordable and very easy to rent from. I’ll be recommending Kelly to anyone who needs a car rental.

We had a mini vacay to see the Eminem concert. We planned to catch a ride with friends but decided we wanted our own car. Being last minute, it was difficult to find any cheap rentals. Luckily my cousin told me about Turo and I was able to find Ed and his rental cars. He kept in contact when delivering and made it easy for us to drop off. Because of him being flexible, we were able to get to everything we wanted.

Was the perfect little sporty car to see the island with. JL was very helpful and quick to respond to any questions I had. Pickup and drop off could not have been easier. The no hassle made for a very satisfying experience as my last trip to Hawaii I spent hours waiting in line for rental cars. I highly recommend doing business with JL, I know I will be on my Next Hawaii trip.

It was my 3rd or 4th rental from Shams, but it was again an excellent experience. The pick-up and drop off were easy, and Shamsul was really flexible with everything. The cars are usually spotless, and they work very well. I would always rent from him whenever I am in Honolulu.

Craig and his wife were awesome and the perfect hosts. Never again am I renting a car from the big rental car agencies. I was quoted $140.00 per day in Waikiki by Avis for a mid-sized car when I can rent this true sports car a Jaguar F-Type for less. The car was in immaculate condition and the red wheels really made the car standout as well as the throaty exhaust system. This car turned heads and people wanted to take pictures everywhere we went. When I'm in Hawaii and on Oahu, I'm going to be renting exclusively from Craig and Joanna. All his rentals are reasonably priced and his delivery and pickup service is so much cheaper price than the others. Their services are first class and their cars are too!

Everything on the car worked great except for the cigarette lighter to plug in our GPS. Richard suggested buying a USB cable since we already had a USB battery and that worked great for our trip. We were there during the summer and the air conditioner works great! Sometimes when we hit bumps around town the rear suspension would be a little noisy. I think the shocks were noisy is all. Richard was there waiting for us when we landed and was wonderful in every way. This was our first time using Turo and if everyone is like Richard then why rent a car anywhere else. Thanks Richard for everything!

Tiecheng was an absolute pleasure to work with. We got stuck in an awful situation where we got towed and he helped us all the way through and even offered a ride to the airport. His kindness saved us in a tight, stressful situation. His car was easy to access upon pick up and was such a smooth process. I will now use Turo from here on out instead of using car rental companies. Tiecheng didn’t have to help us out, but he went out of his way, above and beyond to help us out. We are forever grateful. I would use anyone of Tiecheng’s cars for future hawaii trips! Thank you!

It was my first time using Turo services and I’m so glad that I’ve tried! Codie was highly responsive and flexible to all our requests. Communication was fast and easy and it took about 3 min to pick up a car - forget all the long lines at the car rental companies! The car was in a perfect condition: clean and tidy. Thank you for the awesome experience!
Michael T. - May 22, 2018
Toyota Prius 2010
We got a very good deal with the Nick's Prius. Cheaper than a car rental with a very flexible and convenient schedule. The Prius was also good choice as we only spent $10 in gas for a 100 mile trip. Nick also hooked us up with a $25 credit when signing up with Turo. Overall I would absolutely recommend it.

Sham and his crew were amazing! I had a setback due to the airline canceling my connection flight and Sham & his guys helped me through it all!

Nick and Aric are awesome. First time using Turo and I'll never go back to corporate rental cars. They picked me up at the curb when I got off my flight and when I left met me right by check in so all I had to do was get out and walk in. They are responsive and easy to communicate with. Nice doing business with real people instead of corporate robots. I'll probably rent from them again on my next trip!
James R. - April 26, 2018

The car is an absolute gem and is one of the coolest rental cars on the entire island. Be prepared that you'll need to set aside extra time for pickup and return because the shop is located 15 minutes from the airport. Still more convenient than using hertz. Logistics were ok, car was amazing, so 5 stars it is. If you want a cool convertible on Oahu for a reasonable price, this is it right here.

This was so EASY and CONVENIENT! We had a problem with Thrifty car rental when we got to Honolulu with all of the hidden fees and canceled our reservation with them but we heard about Turo and I’m so glad we did! Larry’s car was perfect and we got to site see on the island. If it’s your first time using Turo be sure to use a $25 credit to your first trip! And rent from Larry he has a variety of vehicles to choose from whether you’re looking for something cheap and efficient, or something to ride in style. He also provided parking at the garage you pick up from and it was soooooo convenient.

Shamsul was awesome he dropped off the car on time....worked with me when I wanted to add an extra day to my trip he accommodated me well...Also he has extremely discounted on parking everyone should take advantage of its alot cheaper than parking your car at the hotel...I would highly recommend renting a car from him if you ever take a vacation to Hawaii

This is our second time renting from Shams. Shams is the best all the way. We will only be renting from him in the future over rental companies. My only drawback with Turo is that if the originally rented car has any issues, it isn't a guarantee that the owner can set you up with another one quite as seamlessly. With Shams, he has a fleet of cars and several staff and they make everything seamless. Shams cars are always great and clean. They do pick up from the airport. Our drop off time changed due to our flight being pushed back and Shams was able to accomodate at pretty last minute to allow us to keep the car longer and then get dropped off at the airport. They rent two floors in a parking garage right in Waikiki so we used that for a day. When we had trouble finding the garage we called Shams and he picked up right away despite being in another state. Excellent service, great staff, great cars. Will use every single visit. Thanks Shams!
Shawn G. - July 29, 2019

Kevin was very pleasant to deal with. The car was ready when I arrived and he walked me through all the rental procedures. They car ran great and was very accommodating to a vacation. Check out was smooth and easy and Kevin was very flexible with the return caveats. Great to deal with all around.

Jayson was an incredible host and so flexible! We were put on an earlier flight at the last minute and arrived a few hours before our trip with his car was supposed to start. When I contacted Jayson, he immediately contacted Turo and our trip was bumped up and he met us with the car. We were so grateful because we were able to have 3 extra hours of our day versus having to sit at the airport and wait! Jayson recommended a lot of places and things to do in the area and had such an infectious laugh! He is very friendly and again showed how flexible he was when we needed to return the car earlier than expected. His dad Arthur met us for the return and was just as friendly! It was such an easy process and we really enjoyed riding around the island in a convertible! I highly recommend renting from Jayson and Arthur if you’re ever in Honolulu!

Matt's communication was the best. He worked hard to get us into the car we had reserved to us, even though the previous renter had not returned it on time. The car was clean, a beautiful shiny red and glossy black tires. Matt's car was the perfect rental for a Hawaiian vacation! Who wants a pristine car to travel to beaches and shopping outlets? The most important thing is that it drives well and looks stunning in your photographs.... Matt's car delivered on these to perfection. Thank you Matt for helping to make an unforgettable day for my family. 😎👍

Tesla Model 3 2018
I'm a bit sad to see the rating system doesn't allow more than five stars, because both the car and the owner deserve it! This was our first time trying out a Tesla, and it's simply an incredible car. From the (obviously) quiet and powerful drive to the made-for-Hawaii glass roof (letting you have the convertible experience even with "liquid sunshine") and the small smart touches in the software (like rearview mirrors which angle down when you engage reverse to help parking. Unless you want to autopark, which is also a great crowd-pleaser for passengers of a certain age. Ok, almost any age). Or just the fun-factor of popping the "frunk" instead of the trunk (and it proved its use on the way back to the airport - we needed the extra luggage space). The software is very intuitive to use, and having what amounts to the dashboard in the middle of the console didn't bother me a single time. Also, having that big beautiful screen for navigation is great if you have yet to memorise every one-way in Waikiki or the quickest way to get to Ka'ena or Kailua. As for Joe, communication was always quick and easy, and he was very flexible in helping us charge midway through the trip. The range is about 300 miles and we drove quite a bit, so we needed a recharge in the middle of our nine day rental. We left the car in the International Market Place, in the evening and early the next morning Joe came back with it fully charged (at no charge, horrible pun intended). If you're on the fence about trying a Tesla, I couldn't recommend this car/host combination more - the only possible downside is you'll probably need to reprioritise your family budget to start saving for a purchase down the road...

Nissan Sentra 2016
David was amazing. He was extremely accommodating and maintained incredible communication throughout the duration of our trip. I was going to get a rental car through a commercial company (i.e. enterprise, budget, avis, etc.) But so happy I didn't. I rented David's Nissan Sentra which was great on gas and the car was clean and A.C. was cold. The car seemed brand new. Not only was it a couple hundred dollars cheaper than the commercial companies, but this guy threw in a complimentary cooler, umbrella, boogie board, snorkeling gear, and four beach chairs. We used all of this at the beach. We couldn't buy most of that stuff and lug it back on the airplane, so that was extremely convenient and much appreciated. Also, he had the little things that made a difference like an auxiliary cord, USB charger/adapter, air freshener, a list of popular places to visit, things to eat, and see. Immediately I was impressed with how david displayed his commitment to his business and making people happy. I know I've written a lot more than most would sit and read but these days customer service isn't so easy to come by, but when it does and at this level, it needs to be recognized and I want others to get to experience the awesomeness like my wife and I did. Thanks David!

Toyota Corolla 2019
This couple is literally one of the best I have rented from. They made my trip easy and stress free. They were very accommodating. They are a very sweet couple and know how to make there renters happy. If you will rent from them you won’t be disappointed. There cars are clean, new, low miles, very reliable. The service is amazing, they do whatever they need to to make you happy as they did for me, my wife, and our kids. Their communication is amazing they keep you posted the whole time, in where they are, how long it will take. If there was a way to give them 10 starts I would :-) Thank you guys we really appreciate everything you had done for us. Mahalo!!

MINI Cooper 2007
Donald was easy to communicate with, punctual, and friendly. Pickup and drop off was a cinch. The Mini is from... 2007, I think? It's not a luxury car or as pretty as something from a rental agency. But a Mini convertible from an agency would be significantly more expensive. This was a fair deal, and a great interaction.

Best Honululu driving roads

Pali Highway

Short and sweet, this 10-mile highway twists north east from Honolulu through the lush Koʻolau mountains, offering dramatic views of the city and the hilly jungle, until the chill beach town of Kailua.

Kamehameha Highway

Start this drive from Kaneohe and take your Honolulu car rental alternative along this windward highway for a more rural side of Oahu with small farms, quiet beaches, and the shoot location for Jurassic Park.

North Shore

Drive along the coast of the North Shore to see the beaches where pro surfers meet giant waves, and then take your Honolulu car rental alternative west to the wild, sacred, lava shoreline of Kaʻena Point.
