Discover Oahu by Car

Oahu is the second oldest of the Hawaiian Islands and has the largest population of all the Hawaiian Islands with almost one million people.

The island is a place for people to come together and enjoy themselves at the beautiful beaches or while exploring the glorious landscapes. Its wide range of hotels, luxury resorts, rentals and B&Bs offer the perfect accommodation for everyone. To get the true Oahu experience, you should rent a car and explore the island on your own. If you love nature, the beautiful beaches at the famous North Shore are waiting for you. You can also enjoy the beautiful scenery by hiking. If you like experiencing local cuisine, you will discover plenty of tasty dishes. Whether you prefer the ambiance of high-end restaurants or small local restaurants with excellent fresh seafood, Oahu has so much to offer.

Planning Your Visit To Oahu

For Hawaii the same visa rules apply as for any visit to the USA. Make sure you have a valid driver’s license for the USA. It is rather warm and sunny in Hawaii most of the year, so pack lightly, but don’t forget some clothing for occasional rain. Whether you visit Hawaii on a cruiseship or come here by plane to one of the airports, car rental opportunities are always nearby.

There are so many books and websites and pictures you can use to plan and prepare for your stay. You can either prepare your visit with a detailed plan which you follow, or "go with the flow" and on each new day freshly decide what you will do. In any case, it’s good to have a good overview of the Hawaiian Islands — Maui, Kauai, Oahu and the Big Island — and what they offer. A rental car gives you the flexibility on each island to explore it freely and spontaneously or to go on long trips.

FAQ Car Rental Hawaii

Once the car is confirmed, we’ll send you a confirmation email which contains the confirmation number as well as the final price. This price is not going to change unless you purchase additional services or upgrades.

Please note: Taxes are subject to change without notice. The government can add or raise taxes — however, we cannot take responsibility for any tax changes.

You will receive a personal confirmation number after we have placed the reservation for you. This number guarantees you the specified rental car. You can always call the rental car company directly to verify this information — but note: they can’t change or cancel your reservation over the phone. Since you booked on our site, their website doesn’t show the reservation. Nonetheless, it is present in the systems which the agencies and their call center access for various logistical purposes.

Once the car is confirmed (with a confirmation number), the reservation is guaranteed. So make sure that you have your reservation number ready when you approach the rental car agency for pick-up.

At our site you find cars in all sizes and from all rental agencies all over Hawaii. So, you don’t have to bother about which agency to choose — you simply select your dates and the car of your choice. We show you the cars available and their prices. You select the option you like best.

When you book the car on our site, we will need your email address. The following happens in the background:

  1. We make a binding reservation in the system of the rental agency for the car and the time that you chose.
  2. You get a confirmation via email — and the confirmation number entitles you to pick up the car at the rental agency at the selected pick-up location.
  3. You pay — at the rental car agency — the price we confirmed in the email (only taxes are "subject to change").
  4. If you want to change or cancel your reservation, you contact us.
