VEHICLE RENTALS AND GROUND TRANSPORTATION

According to the governor’s proclamation related to the COVID-19 emergency: “Unless an exemption is granted, persons subject to self-quarantine … are prohibited from renting motor vehicles in the State, whether through a rental car company, online service, or through a peer-to-peer platform or car sharing service including but not limited to Turo and Zipcar.”

RENTAL CAR SHORTAGE

Hawaii’s rental car fleet decreased by more than 40% during the pandemic. That, combined with an increase in travel, has led to a rental car shortage in Hawaii and other top vacation destinations nationwide. Rental cars are in high demand, so please plan ahead to secure a reservation first before making the rest of your travel arrangements. The Hawai‘i Tourism Authority does not condone visitors renting moving trucks and vans for leisure purposes.

ALTERNATE TRANSPORTATION OPTIONS

Instead of renting a vehicle, please see the following list of alternate transportation options you may want to consider while in Hawaii. Please keep in mind that your wait time may be longer than expected in some instances.

In addition, some hotels and resorts provide transportation to major points of interest. There are also many reputable tour operators that offer designated hotel pick-up and drop-off options. Please check with your accommodations and activity providers for details. For more information, please visit: www.gohawaii.com/trip-planning/transportation/getting-here
