Important information about Honolulu car hire

The breathtaking tropical city of Honolulu offers many great spots to visit that are easier to access with Honolulu car rentals. These include the amazing geological formation Diamond Head, Pearl Harbor National Memorial, Waikiki Beach, and even the Honolulu Zoo if you're an animal lover. Interstate H1 is the main highway that runs through the entire length of Honolulu.  When considering hired cars in Honolulu, remember that it can be difficult to find parking in central Honolulu because it is such a popular destination and all parking is for a fee during the week, whereas on evenings and weekends parking is free. There are several car hire locations in Honolulu both central and at the airport.

While visiting, is it worthwhile to rent a car while visiting Honolulu?

Like any major city, there are certainly times where it is tough to drive hired cars in Honolulu. During weekdays, the rush hour occurs in the early morning heading into Honolulu and then in the early evening heading out of Honolulu. During this time, you should expect heavy traffic on Interstates H1 and H2, the Nimitz Highway, and all of the surface streets in both central Honolulu and Waikiki Beach. Even though Honolulu sits on a relatively small island, the city itself is rather spread out. Because of that, hired cars in Honolulu make sense because of the number of attractions there are to see. As such, you will definitely want a car to make the trip to them as you explore the city and the island. In fact, rental cars in Honolulu can probably drive the entire way around the island of Oahu in about four hours.

What different driving laws should I keep in mind while driving in Honolulu?

Some things to keep in mind about your car rentals in Honolulu are that you cannot have your hazard lights on while your car is in motion and every passenger in a car must have a seatbelt on. The one caveat to this law is that if you are in a truck that has no seats, you can sit in the bed of the truck without a safety restraint. You will also notice when driving in Honolulu that there are no billboards because they are illegal, so you will not have these to distract you while you drive. Like any state in the United States, folks in Honolulu drive on the right side of the road. To keep current with all of the laws and rules about driving in Honolulu, you should check with the local Department of Motor Vehicles.

Will I need a special driving license or permit to drive a rental car in Honolulu if I’m visiting from another country?

Visitors from another country can legally drive a cheap car rental in Honolulu with a valid driving license that has been issued by their home country so long as they are at least 18 years old. Most car rental companies will accept this license so long as it is in the English language. If it is not the English language, these renters will generally need an international driver's permit as well.
