Top tips for hiring a car in O'ahu

  • An important consideration for renting a car on Oahu is that your choices for rental cars are most likely going to be in the southeastern part of the island near larger cities like Honolulu. In fact, to find the best selection of cars available, you most likely should rent a car at the airport in Honolulu. When choosing a rental car think about what you need to use the car for during your stay on Oahu. Because Oahu contains some smaller narrow roads, plus there is some rougher terrain, an SUV or a four-wheel-drive vehicle could be a good choice if you plan on exploring these areas. If instead, you would just like to stay on the major highways and go sightseeing, a nice sedan is a great choice.
  • The island of Oahu in the state of Hawaii has some specific rules and regulations regarding children riding in vehicles. All children that are under the age of four need to ride in a child safety seat when they travel in a vehicle. These children should sit in the backseat of the car as this is the safest place for them to ride. You cannot put a rear-facing child seat in the front seat of a car if it has an active airbag. For children that are ages four to seven, they must ride in an approved booster seat. Once the shoulder strap of the seat belt fits correctly over the chest of the child, they no longer need to ride in a booster seat.
  • One important thing to keep in mind as you drive around the island of Oahu is that while there are plenty of gas stations near the major city of Honolulu, you may not find any gas stations at all as you get farther out on the island. This is especially true along Highway 83 on the eastern side of the island and Highway 93 on the western side of the island. As such, if you plan on exploring the island extensively, make sure you fill up before you head out on your trip.

FAQs about hiring a car in O'ahu

  • Should I hire a car in O'ahu?

    While there is some public transportation available on the island of Oahu, most of it operates in the city of Honolulu. There is also some public transportation that will travel between other towns on Oahu to the city of Honolulu, but most of this public transportation is for commuters making the trip between the cities. If you are coming to Oahu to take part in some of the great outdoor adventures you will find here, especially if you have a larger group, you will most certainly need a great rental car to experience all this great island has to offer.

  • What is driving like in O'ahu?

    Driving on the island of Oahu in the state of Hawaii is not going to be much different than driving in any other state in the United States. One very important thing to keep in mind when you drive here, especially if you're coming from a larger metropolitan city with large interstate freeways and a lot of traffic, is to drive slowly and enjoy the scenery. Most drivers in Hawaii take their time getting from place to place, so just go with the flow and enjoy your drive. That said, make sure you do not get distracted by all the scenery that you will experience when you drive. It's a common mistake for visitors to spend too much time looking at the beautiful surroundings and not paying attention to where they are driving. Because Oahu can receive so much rain, be aware of lower visibility, slippery roads, and potential flooding and potholes while you drive in the rain.

  • How old do you have to be to hire a car in O'ahu?

    On Oahu, most rental car companies will expect you to be at least twenty one years old to rent a car. If you are less than twenty five years old, you may incur an additional charge for your rental. People that are less than twenty five years old may have limits on the type of car they can rent. Additionally, if you want to use a debit card, you will most likely need to be at least twenty five to do so.
