About Oahu

The island of Oahu is a beautiful blend of city and country with an abundance of not-to-be-missed sights, from museums and historical landmarks to scenic beaches and parks. Although it’s a small island, having a vehicle makes it easy to explore popular destinations like Pearl Harbor, Downtown Honolulu, Waimea Valley, Haleiwa Town and more.

Wondering whether you need to rent a car on Oahu? It depends on where you’re staying. If you’re staying outside of Waikiki, you may need a rental car for the full length of your stay. If you’re staying in Waikiki, you may only occasionally need to rent a vehicle. You might plan to spend most of your time on the beach or by the pool and can easily walk to nearby shops for souvenirs, sunscreen or that poke bowl you’ve been seeing all over Instagram. Hotel parking rates can also be expensive, ranging from $30 to $50 per night.

For adventures of all types, book one of Hui Car Share’s 170 cars, trucks and SUVs from one of 70 stations across Oahu. Reservations can be made by the hour or day to accommodate your schedule and perfect Hawaiian vacation.

Should I rent a car in Honolulu?
Yes. If you plan to travel only around Honolulu, there are many options for both residents and travelers to seamlessly get around. For travel within Airport, Uber and Lyft are the best way to easily hop in between destinations. For short distances, Biki bike share has stations located all around Honolulu that makes point-to-point travel simple. Most main roads in Honolulu have dedicated bike lanes. If you don’t mind the shared space of public transportation, TheBus is the cheapest option for medium-distance travel. Uber and Lyft are the most convenient option for medium-distance, point-to-point trips. Hui Car Share is the cheapest and most convenient option for medium-long distance, multi-stop road trips and errand runs.
Is Oahu open for travel?
Yes. Oahu is open for travelers. As of November 8, 2021, domestic travelers will need to register with the State of Hawaii Safe Travel program. A U.S. citizen traveling from an international location must provide proof of vaccination and a negative test result within the last 72 hours. A non-vaccinated U.S. citizen will need a negative test result within 24 hours of the flight. A Non-U.S. citizen will need to provide a negative test result within the last 72 hours and provide proof of vaccination. For more information, the Hawaii Tourism Authority gives an informative guide for a smooth trip to the islands.
Is there Uber or Lyft in Hawaii?
Yes. Uber and Lyft provide ride-sharing services all over Oahu. To request an Uber pickup from Honolulu International Airport, you must go to designated pickup spots. For international arrivals (Terminal 1), go to the second median across from Lobby 2 on the departures. For arrivals from the Mainland US (Terminal 2), go to the second median across from Lobby 8, on the departures level.
How long does it take to drive around Oahu?

Driver Testimonials

Hui Car Share is a convenient way to travel with my group of friends. Signing up for a membership is easy and you don’t have to wait in line or to do paperwork each time you rent a car. It’s easy and affordable.

Ashlyn G.


Renting a car was so easy with the app and was very convenient. It was a good value considering the limited and expensive parking options in Waikiki and the time spent waiting for public transportation options. Wish I would have knew about this option sooner, I would have used it several times during my stay in Waikiki. Highly recommended!

Wesley T.


Tried this for the first time yesterday while staying in Waikiki during Covid pandemic. It was great! Wanted to take a quick trip with our family of four to Diamond Head.
App was easy to use. Membership process took only a few minutes for approval, and I was able to book a car a few blocks away. Location was well marked with a big Hui Car Share sign visible from the street. Car was in good condition and easy to unlock with app (very cool technology!)
Huge plus: excellent customer service!

Jen Y.


We are visiting Waikiki and decided to travel the island on our own at the last minute. The night before we left, we signed up with Hui using their app and asked them to rush approval for us, since we wanted to use it the next day. We woke up and it was approved. We selected our car and they gave us the address. We walked over there and picked up the car using our phone. Gas, cleaning, insurance is all included in the price which is why we picked them. The price you see is what you pay. You can use it for one hour or like we did for 12 hours. There is a gas card in the car so we just filled up when we needed with their card. It was so easy and affordable and so convenient. I would use them again. Loved it!
