With the preceding in mind, securing readily available transportation for your trip has its advantages, and to facilitate this option, several rental car companies located at or within close proximity to Honolulu International Airport maintain an adequate fleet of vehicles which are priced according to size, style, days rented, availability, and individual circumstances. Compact, mid, and full sized cars available for immediate pick up can be reserved and signed for at designated airport terminal areas. All agencies and respective contact numbers are included for informational purposes and convenient online comparison shopping, so finding exactly what you need at the most attractive rate and terms can be accomplished with relative ease.

Like all other consumer products and services, price points determined by rental car companies are tied directly to prevailing market conditions which can fluctuate often depending upon economic factors. Frequent or seasonal rate adjustments are not uncommon within the industry and a consumer is more likely to pay full price or possibly even a significant premium during peak visitation times.

The Honolulu International Airport also plays host to a number of additional ground transportation options designed exclusively for paying hotel guests who just need a one way ride to the property.

So if you just need a ride to and from the airport, contact your hotel customer service representative or concierge to find out if the property for which you have reservations, provides a regularly scheduled courtesy shuttle. Securing a courtesy ride is a fantastic way to alleviate the financial burden in addition to bridging the transportation gap.
