Explore Honolulu

In the South...
The action in Honolulu is definitely centred along Waikiki beach, southeast of the city, which is scattered with many posh high-rise hotels, with a dramatic backdrop, it attracts over 50,000 tourists a day. If you’re into crowds, there’s a great sipirt here and unbeatable nightlife, with fine restaurants, clubs and bars. Kahanamoku Beach is calmer and Kapahulu Groin is a world magnate for boogie boarders. Kapiolani Park contains the Waikiki Aquarium and Honolulu Zoo.

Nearby Diamond Head, one of the highest points on the island, is quite dramatic and offers fantastic views. Beaches are Hawaii’s premier drawcard and the pick of Oahu are Slaughterhouse Beach, great for people watching, Honolua Bay offering crystal clear waters for snorkeling and Hookipa Beach popular with windsurfers.

China town is a fascinating blend of Asian cultures. Highlights include; a Shinto Shrine as well as the Taoist Temple. Be sure to visit the magnificent displays at the Foster Botanical Garden. Here you will also witness the beautiful ornate Buddhist Kuan Yin Temple.

The most memorable sight to see on the island is Pearl Harbor. Millions of tourists flock here annually. The Pacific's National Memorial Cemetery is a somber reminder of America’s entry into WWII.  Alternatively the Asian-inspired Valley of the Temples is a fine cultural must-see attraction. To the west of Pearl Harbor is the town on Waipahu, a small plantation town that once processed sugar.

Inland...
Honolulu may remind you a bit of Southern California or Miami beach, but just inland is fantastic tropical wilderness waiting to be discovered. Opt for car hire in Honolulu as your main form of transport and travel just 2 miles from the main centre and you will come across lush forest reserves of the Makiki Valley. A switchback road takes you up to Mount Tantalus. The circular route is breathtaking in more ways than one! From here you can access the Puu Ualakaa State Park and Honolulu Watershed Forest Reserve.

In the East...
Windward Oahu is situated parallel along the entire length of the magnificent Koolau Range. Sheltered here is Hanauma Bay with its gorgeous turquoise waters and first class snorkeling. Kailua is the third largest city on Oahu and is situated just south of where the Pali Highway meets the windward coast, and features a fantastic beach. In the town of Laie there is a fascinating, and enormously popular Polynesian Cultural centre.

In the North...
Oahu's North Shore is synonymous with surfing, featuring famous names such as Sunset Beach, the Banzai Pipeline and Waimea Bay that boast 9 ft waves.

Transport

By air
Honolulu International Airport is a major Pacific hub, especially on the North American-Asian route, so flights are numerous. Flights operate regularly, around 7 times a day, to other Hawaiian islands including; Oahu Airport, Kauai Airport and Maui Airport. The majority of flights operate to Oahu’s Airport at Kahului.

A regular shuttle service operates hourly from Honolulu International Airport to Waikiki Beach. Private shuttles service many resorts throughout the island of Honolulu. Car rentals are also on offer at the airport from leading suppliers Dollar, Avis, Budget, Enterprise, Hertz and National. Thrifty, Alamo, and Advantage Rent A Car are also available but their offices are not at the airport. Book with us for even more options.

By boat
Ferries service the island, approximately five times a day between Lanai and Maui. It is considered a much cheaper and prettier form of transportation than to fly to Honolulu, and doesn't take 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? This label indicates that a rental car satisfies the following requirements: Unlimited kilometers, no excess liability (and no excess cover available), sustainable energy policy, and that the car rental company has a good reputation. Availability of cars satisfying these four requirements will speed up the selection of a suitable vehicle for you. 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).
