Hawaii Guide


Awesome waves, perfect weather, towering volcanic mountains, lush rainforests, rugged coastline, great nightlife, friendly hosts; Hawaii’s islands have it all.

Oahu Island is the busiest island and has the best entertainment and nightlife, mostly centred around Honolulu. Skip the city and head for Waikiki Beach which is where it’s at - a lively collection of package tourist hotels, restaurants, bars, shopping options and a beach full of brown bodies. Nearby Diamond Head, one of the highest points on the island, is quite dramatic and offers good views. Beaches are Hawaii’s premier drawcard and the pick of Oahu are Slaughterhouse Beach (people watching) Honolua Bay (snorkeling) and Hookipa Beach (windsurfing).

Pearl Harbor, which attracts millions of American visitors every year, and the National Memorial Cemetery of the Pacific is a somber reminder of America’s entry into WWII. Alternatively the Asian-inspired Valley of the Temples is a fine cultural attraction.

Away from the beaches, Kapiolani Park contains the Waikiki Aquarium, the Honolulu Zoo, a bandstand and hula show grounds.

China town is a fascinating blend of Asian cultures, highlights include a Taoist temple and a Shinto shrine. Foster Botanical Garden is also lovely and includes the ornate Buddhist Kuan Yin Temple.

Lahaina, Maui's main town, has some 19th-century historical sites, including the Old Courthouse (now a gallery of local art), Baldwin House and the Wo Hing Temple.

Surfers and windsurfers will be in their element on Maalaea Bay, while Maipoina Oe Iau Beach Park or Kamaole Beach Park are tamer. Keawakapu Beach has reefs and is more scenic and less crowded.

Golfing, recreational sporting activities, first-class international cuisine, shopping and accommodation to suit all budgets are all well supported in America’s 50th state.

By car you can explore Volcanoes National Park, the Hamakua Coastline (Big Hawaii Island), Haleakala Crater and West Maui Mountains, Kuai’s Waimea Canyon and Lanai island.

To & From

Air is the only realistic means of reaching Hawaii and Honolulu is a major Pacific hub, especially on the North American-Asian route, so flights are numerous. Connections are regular (several times a day) to all of the other islands, the majority going to Oahu’s airport at Kahului. Inter-island flights are plentiful between Honolulu (Oahu) and airports at Lihue (Kauai), Kahului (Maui), Kona and Hilo (Big Island). A shuttle service from Honolulu airport to the city or Waikiki beach is regular and reliable, operating all hours. Private shuttles run to other resorts scattered around the island.

A small ferry runs five times daily between Maui and Lanai. It’s much cheaper, and certainly more scenic than flying, without taking too much longer.

The QE II makes an annual stop stopover (5 days from Mexico).

What most people want to know

The following questions and answers are a selection of the most popular questions. If you do not find the answer to your question, have a look at the Frequently Asked Questions page or contact us.

Is Carrentals.co.uk the cheapest?

Yes, we offer a guarantee of the lowest price - because we compare various retailers, we can always offer you the best price in town.

What do I need to do when picking up a car?

To pick up your car, you will need your voucher, passport, driver's license and a credit card. It is very important that your driver's license and credit card are in the same name as the main driver. Keep in mind that the local rental company will reserve a certain amount on your credit card as a deposit. This requires the PIN code for your credit card. If your driver's license is foreign (for example, in Chinese), you must bring a translation with you. Only your original passport and driver's license will be accepted - a copy is not sufficient.

Are there any additional costs?

In general, our rates are all-inclusive. Should there be any additional costs, our booking department will get in touch with you before issuing the invoice. Should you object, you can always cancel your reservation with no obligations attached (at least 48 hours in advance).

What kind of insurance is applicable to my car rental?

In general, Liability Insurance, Fire Insurance, All-Risks Insurance and Theft Insurance are included in the cost of your rental car.

What is a worry-free label?

Only rental companies with a high level of customer satisfaction are eligible to be included in our Worry-Free selection. This rate includes excess cover and unlimited kilometres. Your vehicle will be provided and must be returned with a full tank of fuel. With a vehicle from our Worry-Free selection, you can travel with peace of mind and no hidden costs.

How can I change or cancel my reservation?

You can cancel your reservation through "My Account". We recommend contacting us by phone if your changes to your booking or cancellation takes place at short notice (48 hours or less).

When will I get a confirmation of my booking?

Most reservations will receive confirmation within minutes after payment takes place. We recommend contacting our Booking Department for last minute reservations (pick-up within 48 hours).
