Car Rentals on Oahu
WHY RENT A CAR ON OAHU
Oahu is an excellent vacation island for everyone, especially for first-time-to-Hawaii visitors. However, returning visitors to Oahu know that a rental car is the only way to enjoy all that this diverse island gives travelers. AlohaRents provides the vehicle that fits your choice of exploration.
Destination weddings frequently take place on Oahu. Would renting a “getaway” sports car for the newlyweds be fun?

Oahu hosts many conferences, often in Honolulu. For a group who wishes to sightsee on their off-hours, a passenger van may be the perfect solution for seeing the island.
And remember that a budget rental is a great way to get the most from your travel money. Distances aren’t far apart, so luxury isn’t that important when, for example, you want to get to Hanauma Bay State Park early in the morning before the parking lot fills and the water becomes cloudy.
Jeeps, too, are available from AlohaRents. A Jeep is a fun way to see Oahu! Drive it to the beach and then cruise to dinner in a modern American classic.
LEARN ABOUT THE CITY OF HONOLULU and ISLAND OF OAHU
Honolulu, not far from the airport, is large and fun, with plenty to do during the day and after dark. Honolulu is a modern city with island charm, world-class shopping, and unique history. Yet this city doesn’t sleep; its tiki bars are trendy for partying.
Waikiki Beach is within Honolulu. Visitors will find gorgeous, historical luxury hotels and budget-priced accommodations close to the famous beach. The Honolulu Zoo, just off Waikiki Beach, is primarily an outdoor habitat that’s interesting for all ages.
Pearl Harbor, in Honolulu, is on many bucket lists. The memorial includes naval ships and an aviation museum. The grounds are free, although visitors can see the historical site in various ways, including “deluxe” tours via excursion companies.
A stay on Oahu is only complete if it includes a drive along the North Shore. Up north, the mood is quaint. It’s quieter and more relaxed. Lovely, secluded resorts make their homes here. The North Shore is famous for food trucks, shave ice, scenic drives, snorkeling, and beautiful beaches. This is the place to watch pro surfers skim across unbelievably tall waves.
Guided tours, including those for snorkeling, sightseeing, and hiking, are available across the island, although there are calm water bays with abundant sealife to visit or snorkel on your own. The water is clear, the crowds are fewer, and parking is more available if you arrive early in the day.

Oahu is the most economically varied of the islands. U.S. and Hawaiian governments, healthcare, aquaculture, and the University of Hawaii are examples of employers who provide diverse opportunities for the local community.
