booking your Hawaiian car rental onlineWhile you may be excited about the simplicity and convenience of booking your Hawaiian car rental online, it’s not unusual that some users may be left with some questions. Clicking over to a rental website for the first time or even after having not done so in awhile can be pretty overwhelming. There is a lot of information presented to you upfront, and it’s very important that you understand everything that’s there. Before reserving your vehicle – here are some tips that should help you.

  • Know the Rows: Many car rental websites will give you side by side comparisons of various companies and their rates. While these won’t be available on individual companies’ websites, you can find them on travel planning sites. This is a great way to find the best rates possible, and it may even help you weed out companies that aren’t offering rentals during your travel dates. Before going right to the rental company’s website, try one of these travel planning sites first.
  • Get Your Quote: Many rental companies will provide you with a quote right then and there. There will be no surprises when you go to pick up your vehicle, and you won’t have to be concerned about some type of mix-up happening and your price going up. By booking online and in advance, you can essentially “lock in” your price and the vehicle you’re reserving which will ensure that no changes will be made to your reservation.
  • RESERVE NOW: When you’re viewing the car you have in mind, many sites will allow you to easily click a “reserve now” button to complete your reservation. There are no hoops to jump through and you won’t have to remember to call back during business hours. You can reserve your vehicle right then and there with no strings attached. For planners, this is an invaluable option.
