Hawaii car rental help

Would anyone who has gone want to point us in the right direction for car rental. Is Alamo the best deal for the islands? Is it best to book early them keep watching? Thank you d

That's what I did, to ensure availability. We ended up with Dollar, as they ended up being the cheapest. We were on Oahu for a week and ended up paying $250, including taxes for a mid size SUV, even the people checking us in didn't believe our rate!!!! I just kept using Kayak to check for rates about daily, and one day I got lucky with my low rate. Now, I didn't use any coupons/codes to get that rate..... I also wanted an on-airport place and didn't want to deal with a shuttle....... Good luck!

I booked with Dollar also for Maui. We are getting a Jeep Wrangler for 6 days for $300 (total). Same car is now $500 and we are 25 days away from arrival. I booked about 4 months out and kept cancelling/rebooking as it creeped down in price.

Alamo was typically the lowest but I have been seeing that's not always the case anymore. It seems in most markets their prices are 10 to 20 percent higher than Dollar or Thrifty.

Keep watching - especially the week before when Alamo deeply discounts in various areas.
