Special Car Rental Service for Cruise Ship Passengers

Aloha and thank you for your interest in using CarRentalHawaii.com. We have booked many rental cars for cruise ship customers like you and any questions you may have will no doubt be answered on our FAQ page. Please read all the information before contacting us by phone.

We are pleased to serve cruise ship passengers touring Hawaii. We can easily help you arrange your one day car rentals to explore our beautiful islands.

We also provide information about how to be picked up at the pier and details about each local car rental agency.

Free Pick Up Service at the pier. The Agency locations are close to each harbor. (NO FREE PICK UP IN KONA and LAHAINA)

Knowing that your time is precious, we arrange these special one day car rentals with Thrifty and Dollar. They are the most efficient when it comes to car rentals for our cruise ship customers. Most often the Rental Companies shuttle bus will be waiting at the harbor for customers with prearranged reservations.

Most of the pick up locations are at the local airports. For Honolulu, the Down Town Agency in Waikiki is doing the free Shuttle pick up. Please choose "Honolulu City" to arrange your rental car and the free pier pick up. (Budget and Avis do NOT do any pick up)

Our suggestions for Oahu: pay a Taxi out of your pocket. Book the car from and to the airport (is much cheaper) and save on drop off charges and T I M E !!!!

As of January 1st 2017 there is no longer free shuttle pick up at the Lahaina Harbor from Alamo and Enterprise. Avis and Budget are still providing this service. Please consider checkding the rates with them, on our website, when docking in Lahaina. If reserving with Alamo or Enterprise when coming in to Lahaina, you have to take a taxi to their rental car agencies (cost about 20 dollars). The Pride of America, Carnival, Disney, and a few other cruise ships dock at Kahului Harbor, where there is free shuttle bus pick up. Most other cruise lines come into Lahaina.

As of April 1st 2017, Alamo does not do any free shuttle pick up at the Kahului Port. We suggest to either book our Deals with Thrifty and Dollar, or consider taking a Taxi to the Agency. The drive from the pier to the Airport is about 4 Minutes.

There is no free pick up in Kona either. Since Kona was the only place where the drive from the pier to the agency was more than 30 minutes and the road is often loaded with cars (bumper to bumper) nobody wants to take on responsability of delivering the clients too late to the ship and then have to pay for accommodation if the ship is already gone). However, we suggest to not rent a car in Kona and rather enjoy that this is the only stop on your cruise where you actualle ARE in a nice location and not in a industrial port like the other islands. Just take the day off and enjoy Kona Town rather than rent a car and beeing in stress all day long to keep an eye on the clock because you have to return it by 3 o Clock already (and pay for the whole day!!).

To book the car for Nawiliwili Harbor in Kauai, please use the "Kauai-Lihue" location. For Lahaina, Maui you need to use the "Maui-Kaanapali" location. Please enter a separate reservation for each port.

Please read our FAQ page for answers to questions other cruise ship customers have asked before making your reservation.
