Recommendations for Finding Your Transportation
Discount Hawaii Car Rental is the place we go whenever we visit a neighboring island. We get the best deals with our rental car because this is a comparison car rental website specializing in Hawaii.
It is similar to Kayak, Hipmunk, Orbitz, and other travel comparison sites but for a reason unknown to us, they are a lot cheaper. A lot.
We saved $300 over the New Year’s holiday when we visited the Big Island compared to the other comparison rental car sites.
You can shop for the car you want with all the major, national car rental brands.
After being in business for 17 years in Hawaii, they know what visitors want. They offer no prepayment, no cancellation charge, and they guarantee reservations.
They have a one-click “Get the Best Wrangler Rate” option. I know you want to drive around Hawaii Jurassic Park style.
If you decide to rent a car, Discount Hawaii Car Rental will get you the lowest price.

Uber & Lyft
Rideshare is available on Maui, Oahu, Kauai, and the Big Island. Lanai and Molokai are too small to support ridesharing (have cash and call a taxi).
More and more people are foregoing rental cars to use Uber or Lyft when visiting the islands. If you don’t plan on doing a lot of activities far from your hotel, then not renting a car will most likely be cheaper. Especially when you factor in parking fees at your hotel and gas (around $4.00/gallon).
For example, Uber drivers on the west-side of Maui do the Kaanapali-Lahaina loop all day as they ferry non-rental car visitors from the resorts to Lahaina town shopping and restaurants.
