I actually rented from Alamo twice in Oahu and I rented from Thrifty in Kauai. The difference is night and day between the two. Customer service, quality and cleanliness of the car, clear terms of cost were all more than I expected from a car rental company. I’m still fighting with Thrifty over unfair charges. I don’t know if all Alamos are created equal but I highly recommend Oahu airport Alamo!!!

The new rental facility is very difficult to find and enter. What a mess in traffic lanes, signs, road conditions, etc. Not much gained here, plus a very long walk from Alamo to Alaska Airline. How much more do we have to pay for this monstrosity and edifice to this airport.

I responded that I was local going to walk back to my office about 3 blocks away. No problem, they offered me a ride to my office. Thank you Hertz. Aloha

Overpriced nickel and dimer.I liked that it’s right across the arrival gates.That they charge you by the hour after a contracted time is up. It’s like renting a love motel except they screw you over. Trying to drop off the car at a poorly managed hnl terminal give yourself 15-30 extra minutes once you arrive at the airport to drop off.

too few clerks at pickup, incredibly bad signage for dropoffThe clerk was friendly and helpful, when I finally got to talk to one. (The initial male clerk/supervisor was quite unhelpful) Pick up was very close to the airport, and the car was very close to the desk. Car worked fine, but odd to have Nissan Optima floor mats in a Kia.10 terminals at pickup ... 2 or 3 were manned. had to wait, standing, in line much longer than reasonable. Come on, how long *should* it take to give someone keys? Failing that, *CHAIRS* plus "take-a-number" would be much more comfortable. Don't think I didn't notice that National had no line waiting! At dropoff, came in the "normal" way, and failed to see any "rental car dropoff" signs. Finally googled "Hertz", and found a dilapidated, dirty, old lot with a few cars and a trailer with the sign "Hertz". Inside, the lone attendant was able to give us directions to the real return lot, a few blocks away. This was a failure of Waze, Google, and Apple Maps, too. If I were Hertz, I'd work to ensure that a Waze/etc search for "Hertz return" (or similar) actually, you know, *found* the dropoff center! Hertz: you cant' work a deal with Sirius or XM? No? Really?

InsuranceEasy to return the car :)I would prefer to get full coverage insurance. I only signed up for the one offered by kayak which only covered us for rental car. Hertz insisted we had to get a third party insurance. Hence we had no choice but to buy one from them.

Brand New RideWe got a brand new vehicle, top model. No damages so we felt at ease knowing charges for damages we didn’t cause would not be charged to our card. Drop off was a breeze and took only 5 minutes.Like all rental companies, the “gold member” line had more attendants and moved quicker.

Not enough economy cars. That's what people want with today's high gas prices. ALWAYS make sure there are enough representatives at the check-in desks so that people don't have to wait a long time. There's nothing more frustrating after a long flight.

Our agent Susy who checked us back in on the return was amazing!
6.0 Good2022 Apr 03
The counter staff was polite and friendly. However, the issue was vehicle availability. They didn’t have the Jeep Grand Cherokee I had reserved and offered me a free upgrade to a BMW. I had 4 in my party and we couldn’t fit our lugggage in. After struggling for a bit we knew it wouldn’t fit. I had to go back downstairs and wait in line again because they couldn’t switch vehicles for me in the garage. That took awhile and my choices were wait for the Cherokee to be ready or pay double my original reservation to get a vehicle with the same trunk space. We had just landed in Oahu and already spent over 1 1/2 hours just to get a car. So I ended up paying $800 for a 2 day rental so we could get on with our vacation. The staff was very friendly so good marks for that! Will stick with Hertz in the future. I can get in and out in 10 minutes and exchanges are super easy.

The car was supposed to be full but only had 1/2 thankful. I called Sixt cust serv and was told to just bring back with at least that much gas in the tank (which is a scam in itself), and so I returned it with 3/4 thankful - which amounts to $20 in gas. And the still charged me a $45 fuel fee. I call that very poor customer service and I will be contesting the charge.

Car not well-maintained. Needed a mechanic. I received a new car that had been treated poorly by previous drivers; wear and tear was evident, including an unidentifiable (and somewhat alarming) hard rattle from somewhere near the rear wheels. (Suspension? Axle? Bad shocks?) I only felt comfortable in the car because I was not traveling long distance.

hour long line on pickup.. only 2 agents working.. called day 10 to extend rental ... they insisted on using the same Visa confirmation number which was used on the original rental. crazy... called our bank/visa... need to apply to same card but new confirmation... bank said "happens all the time with Thrifty".. banks not going to re-open a confirmation... just put through another.. therefore, per Thrifty in India, we had to take a day of vacation, drive to Honolulu airport Thrifty, go through hour long line to "re-do" application to achieve extension... said hell with it.. called enterprise .. unloaded golf clubs, diving equipment etc from car, hauled from parking lot to room. Took car back to Thrifty on last day of contract, turned in, then walked around the airport to Enterprise and rented a substitute car for the rest of the stay.. Still lost a half day messing around with the problem.. plus "the hassle !!!!!" all because Thrifty's software is fouled up... plus the long line cking in, plus car with high mileage, plus passenger seat had "steel" frame which tore into you leg every time getting out of the SUV. Not good... no more Thrifty..

The car was nice. It performed well. A customer service person, after some work on the phone, help me fix two of the issues.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.

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.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.

Drop off was only positive part of experience. Will not rent again with this company.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.

First off Dollar and Thrifty Rentals at Honolulu Airport sucks really bad. There is a long line and wait for about two hours to check in for the rental agent desk area and then to go pick up the car is another 3 hour wait. So all in all it was a very bad experience for me. I even missed the Luau I was supposed to be at during the evening because of this rental agency flops. Thank you very so much.

The car we originally booked online, they didn’t even give us the car we booked. It was a 2 door that was too small for me family. We had a lot of suitcases. We had to give them additional money for a 4 door when we originally booked a 4 door. Price didn’t matter as much. But the guy that helped us was the worse one yet. If he didn’t like he’s job, he should have work somewhere else instead of putting his bad mood on us. Very very disrespectful. The car was dirty and had a lot of things wrong with it. Aux was broken.

It was not economy, seems the company also operates as A1.

They mask as economy when they’re actually an independent company (A-1 Rent a car) rents out used cars from a parking lot. It was the worst travel experience I’ve ever had and the first thing we did today was rent a car on Turo to end our trip with a nicer car for the last 2 days of our vacation. I am sorely disappointed and may never book with Kayak again because of this. Honestly :(

Overly strict on the pickup and dropoff timing. I wanted to pickup the car 45 mins ahead of my booking as I arrived earlier than expected. I was told that if i wanted to pickup the car then, i had to return it 45 mins earlier as well, or a full day would be charged. Otherwise I would have to sit around for 45 mins before I could pick it up. Its my first time experiencing this policy and level of inflexibility from any car rental provider. On the other hand, Alamo supported me with a flexible return time that was out of the usual business hours for no extra fee, and even threw in a free upgrade.

Really nothing to like - service staff is rude, disrespectful, dishonest, and condescending. Safety and maintenance - not a priority. Our family family rented two cars from the HNL airport - one overheated from an empty, damaged coolant reservoir, and the other had almost no engine coolant remaining it’s tank. Found food containers and old masks in one of the “cleaned and sanitized” cars. Observed over fifty people waiting multiple hours (some over four) for their cars.

Did not end up booking with them because I waited in line for an hour and only about 8 people in front of me and there was only one person helping customers at 9am in the morning.

Top tips for renting a car at Honolulu Airport

  • A car rental at Honolulu Airport (HNL), also known as Daniel K. Inouye International Airport, is a convenient transportation means compared to other transit options. First, you won't have to spend a lot of time on the road like public transportation. For instance, car rides to downtown Honolulu (roughly 6.1 miles away) can take about 11min, while buses have a 32min approximate travel time. Also, you'll eliminate the chance of having to wait for a bus. Car rental charges are usually upfront with no hidden or additional fees, unlike other means such as taxis and shuttles.
  • When considering a car rental at Honolulu Airport, note that you can select between companies with on- or off-terminal locations. Car rental agencies with locations on-airport are mostly the larger chains that are typically pricier. If you're tight on funds, we advise that you rent from the smaller agencies that generally have their locations outside the airport. Regardless of the option you choose, getting to the car rental offices and parking lots will be simple, thanks to the presence of courtesy shuttles.
  • Returning your Honolulu Airport car rental is seamless. First, ensure that you adhere to the fuel policy per the rental contract, i.e., whether it's prepaid fuel, the company refills, or you refill. When you're ready to drop off the rental car, take the I-H-1 W from Punchbowl Street, head to the airport exit, and use the left two lanes to enter Rodgers Boulevard. Follow the Rental Car Return signs and head over to the specific company parking lot, where you'll find a company attendant who'll help you to complete the process.
  • Honolulu Airport tends to have morning and evening rush hour traffic, making it difficult to pick up or drop off your rental car. Regular weekday peak travel times are around 5 -8 am going into Honolulu and about 3 - 6.30 pm heading out of Honolulu. Therefore, it'll be advantageous to place your arrival time outside the morning traffic and time your departure away from the evening traffic window to avoid getting stuck in traffic.
