How does Hui’s pricing compare to a rental car?

Here are some questions that people must consider when renting a car through a traditional agency or Turo:

  1. What is the cost of my gas usage? Gas for an Oahu circle island drive costs roughly $15. With Hui, gas is included in the cost of your reservation.
  2. Will I have to pay for mileage? With Hui, no. You could drive around the island 20 times if you wanted to, but after your first time, you’d probably find your time more valuable doing other things.
  3. How much will I pay for parking? Nightly parking in many places like Waikiki is as high as $50/night. With Hui, you can leave your car parked in your Hui pickup station for no fee.
  4. Do I have to pay for insurance? Many car rental companies require you to buy insurance that costs $12 per day. That means that if you rent a car from 9AM on Monday to 9AM on Tuesday, the insurance cost is not $12, but $24 (because of the calendar day thing). Hui doesn’t charge extra for insurance.
  5. Am I locked into a minimum rental period? Many cars on Turo will have a minimum booking period of 3 days. All traditional rental cars have a minimum booking period of one day. With Hui, you can book a car for as little as 10 minutes, making it seamless for even quick runs to the grocery store. In Hawaii, most folks spend less than 4% of their time in their car. Never pay for a car for longer than you need to.
  6. Is a car rental company open at the time I need it? At the end of the day, you’re going to want a rental car that accommodates for your travel plans, not one that’s going to cause you to change your plans for. All Hui Car Share cars and stations are available 24/7 for pickup and dropoff.
