...Wonderful service!!...

Hi Steve,

Thank you so SO much for the out of the ordinary arrangements you have made on our behalf. I can easily imagine there would have been many phone calls and we are truly grateful for your efforts. Wonderful service!! And especially thanks for re-booking the car at the cheaper rate at Kona. I will definitely recommend you to anybody I know who would be traveling to Hawaii.

Thank you so much again!!,
M.K.

Hi Steve,

...couldn't have been better, easier, or more economical....

Hi Steve,

A very late thank you--I and my entire family, a total of 14, enjoyed a week on Oahu in early April. We rented a total of 3 vehicles thru your site--couldn't have been better, easier, or more economical. Thank you so much!! If I'm ever lucky enough to get to come back, for sure I'll be visiting your website again!

Many thanks,
C.W.


Thank you for the money saving tip....

Hi Steve,

Thank you for the money saving tip. I've done all the reservations myself (using your corporate discount links). If I have any questions I'll contact you, and if I know of anyone travelling to Hawaii I'll refer them to you.

Kind Regards, 
F.V.


Thank you so much...

Steve - Thank you so much for going out of your way to help me. The Jeep will be less expensive and more fun.

Amazing prices, you were half of Hotwire...

Amazing prices, you were half of Hotwire when I booked. Thanks! Only one minor complaint, your posted Enterprise contract conditions are 3 years old. Extra non-spouse driver is now $12.99, not $10.00.

S.S.

Steve says: 
Thanks for the feedback and especially for the heads-up about the Enterprise Terms and Conditions being out of date. I just emailed my corporate reps from Avis, Budget, Dollar, Thrifty and Enterprise and asked them all to send me their latest documents. 

Unfortunately, most are their national terms and conditions documents and not necessarily specific to Hawaii. Some of what's in the documents is not applicable to Hawaii corporate accounts like HawaiiCarRentals.net. So, as far as what you said about the Enterprise "Extra non-spouse driver is now $12.99, not $10.00," you are 100% correct on the national level. But actually, when you reserve through us via www.HawaiiCarRentals.net, the additional driver drives FREE with Enterprise, spouse or non-spouse, and with Dollar and Thrifty as well. Avis and Budget has spouse and domestic partner as additional driver fee waived. These are all a special Hawaii-only corporate account arrangements I have with these companies for all my customers. They are called Additional Driver Fee Waivers


Thanks for the prompt reply and reassuring me... 

Hi Steve - Thanks for the prompt reply and reassuring me regarding my concerns about the charges for an additional driver.

Thank you for saving me $70 on my weekly rental!

Steve - Thank you for saving me $70 on my weekly rental, and for the info on Saddle Road and "off road" info on your web site.

THANKS SO MUCH FOR SUCH A GREAT AND INFORMATIVE EMAIL!

THANKS SO MUCH FOR SUCH A GREAT AND INFORMATIVE EMAIL!!! I'm going to be deciding within the next day or so how long I'll be there and will get back to you for sure--it is a wonderful service you provide and again, thanks for getting back to me! You are just a great guy to have sent me so much information so quickly! 

Sincerely, R. S.


You made the process easy.

Thank you for your assistance. I did get a reservation number for both reservations. You made the process easy. Thank you.

We greatly appreciate your thorough reply...

Dear Steve - We greatly appreciate you taking the time to provide a thorough reply! I have reviewed the information and will be in touch in the next day or two regarding a reservation after confirming our itinerary.

Thanks again for your time and assistance!

Happy New Year

Sincerely, T & M


Very much appreciated...

Steve - Needless to say, my wife and I were thrilled to see your emails confirming that you had succeeded in finding a Wrangler for us. You taking the time to help us with this is very much appreciated.

We look forward to revisiting Hawaii after so many years after our honeymoon and the efforts of people like you continue to make our anticipation that much greater. 

Mahalo and Aloha. Happy New Year to you as well. With appreciation.

Love it (your website) and have pointed other folks to it...

Hey Steve,
I just rented a couple of cars for Hawaii from your site again. Love it and have pointed other folks to it. Do you have a site that rents cars on the Mainland?

W.J.
Steve says: 
Thanks a lot for reserving! For the mainland, you can actually use the same links you saw on our home page to rent cars on the mainland or anywhere in the world where Avis, Budget, Dollar, Thrifty and Enterprise are located. 

... FYI, my mainland website Discount Car Rentals Online .com


Unreal! - HawaiiCarRentals.net $39 (including tax), elsewhere $62 (including tax)

I want to thank you for finding me such an economical car rental in Hilo on 11/28. Best Kayak could do for me was $62. You got me a rental, through Thrifty, for $39. Price includes taxes. Unreal! 

R.S.


I was impressed... Kudos to you!

Aloha Steve, 

I was impressed how quickly you handled the matter and got it fixed. Many website owners wouldn't have responded at all. Kudos to you! 

P. L.


How can I refer you to others?

Steve, 

Thank you for taking the time to put together this plethora of information!! How can I refer you to others? 

M. F.

Steve says: 
You're welcome! To refer others to Hawaii Car Rentals, simply email them and suggest they check out our discounted rates. Or, follow us, see our videos, like us, tweet, Google+ us or follow our blog.


We've used you guys twice.

You get great discounts and extras like extra drivers. We've used you guys twice now when we have been in Hawaii and wouldn't rent a car any other way!

Your e-mail was very informative and CLEAR.

I am now reserving a second car through your site.

Hello there,
Just wanted to THANK you for having this site available. I am fortunate to have an aunt that has lived in Kauai for many years, and I have been there to visit at least 9 or 10 times. I would not be able to afford to come so often if there were not options such as this for renting a car. Her car is old and not running well, and it is great if my partner and I can rent our own. I was shocked last year when I saw how much the cost of rentals had increased since previous trips, and had I not come across your website we would not have been able to afford a car. I am happy to say I am now reserving a second car through your site for another upcoming trip. Especially now that I am a graduate student I appreciate this opportunity! Thank you for making these discounted prices available. It truly does make a huge difference.

Sincerely,
K.J.


Thanks a lot for your information! You're fast and you understood every point.

Hi Steve - Thanks a lot for your information! You're fast and you understood every point. Excellent that you also informed me about the commission! It matches your webpage. Very Good! 

Have a wonderful day - and thanks again.

Best regards

Thank you for your great website, it has saved us a lot on our car rental.

Hi Steve - Thank you for your quick reply. It's nice to have a professional and friendly response from a car rental company in Hawaii (others are not so efficient or courteous)! Thank you for your great website, it has saved us a lot on our car rental.

I will definitely tell my friends.

Thank you for your thorough and thoughtful answers.

Steve, thank you for your thorough and thoughtful answers. I plan on using your discounts when I rent in September of this year.

It was amazing how much I could save on car rental thanks to your web site.

Hi steve,

Thanks for you reply. It was amazing how much I could save on car rental thanks to your web site. Hawaii is often excluded from many special deals, and I was so shocked at the regular price. 

Anyway, thanks million.
K.K.


I wish I had found your website years ago.

Hi Steve,

I wish I had found your website years ago, as we go once or twice a year to Kauai, and pay much more than on your site. Keep up the great deals!! 

A new fan,
E.S.


It will be a pleasure to book through you.  

Thanks for the rapid response. It will be a pleasure to book through you.

Your website is the hardest to use! 

aloha your site is the hardest to use most confusing site I have ever used! spent 1/2 hour on your site,,, could not get a decent rate,,2 min on the phone with a TA and done --1/2 the price as your "over promise under preform site,,,, good luck! i won't be back!

Steve responds:

As far a travel agent getting you a rate at 1/2 of what Hawaii Car Rentals offers. I'd like to see what that rate was and compare it to our rates. Did it waive the fee for  additional driver(s)? I wonder if the rate you got was combined into some sort of promo fly-drive-hotel package and the rental car rate was offset by higher airline or hotel rates. That is really the only way you could get rates that were 1/2 of our rates. Here's how that works: If I were on a travel agent fly-drive-hotel program where I pay the airlines, car companies and hotels a certain flat rate, I would be able to charge whatever I wanted. I could say free car with a fly-drive-hotel package and offset the freebie car with the higher rates I would charge for the flight and accommodations. In the end, I hope you got a great package deal. Again, thanks for the feedback.


Your website is a wonderful savings! 

Thanks Steve - Your website is a wonderful savings!

J.M.


You have great discounts! 

Hello Steve - Thanks for the quick response. I can't complain about having a lower price! I'm glad I did some looking around. You have great discounts!

T.B.


Those discounts are a great savings. 

Hi Steve - I sure appreciate your website, as those discounts are a great savings. :) Your website has been really helpful -- we've emailed before, don't know if you remember, but you helped me to find a good deal for a car rental in Maui last Feb.

J.M.


Thank you for offering great deals on car rentals!

Thank you so much for your quick and clear answer! The Jeep is booked and I'm very much looking forward to the trip, I've never been to any of the islands before. Thank you for offering great deals on car rentals! :) 

K.S.


Absolutely fantastic service!

Steve, ... absolutely fantastic service!  Thanks very much.  We will certainly book all our rentals through your company.

Your web-site saved us $33/day.

Steve, Thanks for all of your help! You have been so helpful! I have all the days reserved. Your web-site saved us $33/day. Your company offers the best price that I can get, even with other discounts. 

R.D.


Awesome Rates.

Thanks for the awesome rates, no one else comes close!

E. H.


1/3 the price.

Unbelievable rental experience on Kauai! Smooth as silk and at 1/3 the price of the options. I was very impressed. 

D. M.


I will book ONLY through your website.

You are the best Steve, and have been the ONLY person to exactly answer my questions!!! Mahalo! I will book ONLY through your website and hope it brings a little extra to you!!!

J. G.


17 day rental for $360 total!

Your site led me to a 17 day auto rental for an economy car in Honolulu for a grand total of $360....that's with taxes and everything! 

Thank you...or should I say "Mahalo"? ...R. S.


I'm glad to have found your site and will be using it whenever possible.

Thanks for the prompt response. I'm glad to have found your site and will be using it whenever possible. 

Thanks. ...D. S.


Your corporate discount really saved the day.

Thanks again, Steve. Yes! Your corporate discount really saved the day. The 3 extra days pushed it up to $671.00. Darn. But it's still much better than the going rates which are around $800-$900. I made the reservation with Dollar using your discount link. :) 

Many thanks! ...J.M.


Your prices were 45% lower than other well-known travel websites.

Booking with you was quick and flawless.  While other discount websites require you to provide personal information with them first, your website takes customers directly to the rental car company page for booking.  Even better, your prices were 45% lower than other well-known travel websites and the car rental companies themselves. Thanks for making it cheap and easy!

M.H.


Thank you for your help and good info.

Steve, Thank you for your help and good info. Thanks to you we made our reservation as planned. I'll continue to refer to HawaiiCarRentals.net whenever I visit the islands.

Sincerely, ...M. P.


I've been so happy with your site and will recommend it to all our friends.

Thanks for your quick reply, Steve! Your guarantee is so awesome. I've been so happy with your site and will recommend it to all our friends.

Mahalo, ...K


I saved a BUNDLE on my recent 10 day trip to Kauai.

I must admit, I was a little skeptical when I found your website, but it is the real deal. I saved a BUNDLE on my recent 10 day trip to Kauai. Thank you so much!

... S. F.


This says a lot about your customer service already.

Mahalo for the quick response. This says a lot about your customer service already. I look forward to doing business in the near future. I have been renting cars in Hawaii for years and didn't realize there were other ways to rent cars other than through a package deal with the travel places.  

... J.W.


Prompt response and great communication.

Your rental car prices are quite amazing for Waikiki.

Thanks Steve for the quick reply and thanks for the web page of information. Your prices are quite amazing for Waikiki. I checked with the car rental company at hotel we are staying with and you beat them by more than 1/2 price.

I will definitely be passing the word onto my friends. 

Thanks again! 

... M.W.


You Saved Me Huge!

Thanks for the reply. I was able to book with Enterprise rent-a-car - and I just cancelled an outrageous booking (with another online company). You saved me huge!!! Good work!

... M.T.


These rental car rates are much better than anything I've seen so far

Steve! You are amazing!!!! Thank you so much for the information. I've made some reservations and see exactly what you're talking about. These rates are much better than anything I've seen so far. You've been so fantastic, I'm excited to pass your name along to others when they're making reservations! 

Mahalo, ...KPK


$10.00 per day cheaper on car rental

I think your website is great. Your site promo made our rates about $10.00 per day cheaper.

J.C.


I really appreciate all the info you have on your website

Thank you so much for your quick response to my email, Steve. I have looked up the link you sent and see that there is parking across the street (from the Honolulu cruise ship terminal) and that would be great. I will be looking to rent a SUV for Sept 27-28 in Honolulu and will be using your website to book it. Thank you so much for your help. We may also rent a convertible in Maui when we dock there, again will be using your website for that.

I really appreciate all the info you have on your website too!

L. R.


Orbitz, Expedia, etc rates are astronomical compared to yours

Can you please explain to me how it is possible that your rates for many of the same rental agencies are so much cheaper than those online. I'm finding that whether I'm looking at orbitz, expedia, etc their rates are astronomical compared to yours. I would love to understand and be assured that if I book through you that I will not have any problems or not have a car. 

Thank you. ...J.K.

Steve Says
Sure. Check out the whole story at our

Thanks so much for all your insight and help

Thanks so much for all your insight and help, Steve! You've been a big help!

Wow, this is really helpful information

Hi Steve, 

Wow, this is really helpful information. Thanks so much for sending it along. I appreciate your tips on how to rent the cheapest possible way as well as the info on when rates come out. 

Thanks for everything! ...K


Thank you so much for the detailed email

Hi, WOW! thank you so much for the detailed email. All the tips are so helpful.

Thanks, R.


Thank you for the the amazing rates

Thank you for the the amazing rates on rental cars. Do you have any suggestions for discounts on activities on Kauai? Any information would be much appreciated.

Your prices were nearly half the cost

My husband and I just booked a car through your site and received a wonderful deal with Thrifty. Your prices were nearly half the cost of going directly to the rental car agency. 

Thanks for the great deal,
R.A.


I am tremendously grateful

Hi Steve,

Thanks so much for you speedy response -- it's greatly appreciated! I am tremendously grateful for all your help and added insight Steve. 

I’ll be in touch soon,
SM


This site was much cheaper

I used this site to make all my car reservations - they have the best prices and discounts (I did a comparison one afternoon - this site vs each individual car rental site - this site was much cheaper - and easy to navigate). 

Good Luck!
K.K.


I’ll definitely rent from you again

Steve,

I used your website and rented from Thrifty and used the upgrade coupon. Honolulu airport pick up.  Wanted to let you know that they were great. My first car had a warning light come on after day 2 so they let me switch it out for another car. The pick up shuttle drivers were WONDERFUL! 

Thanks again.  I'll definitely look up your site when I return later this summer.
A.M.


Great Rates!!

Steve,

Is this website for real, no strings attached to get these great rates?

Thanks
ES

Steve Says:
Thanks E.S.! Yes, we are for real and there are not strings attached. Read all about it. 


I will definitely recommend your site to others

Hi Steve,

Thank you so much for all of your help! Thanks for checking into this to confirm the prices--I always like confirm everything before I leave so there are no surprises when I arrive. I really appreciate it, and I will definitely recommend your site to others!

Thanks again!
JK


I really appreciate your time and detailed response

Steve, 

Thanks I really appreciate your time and detailed response. I will most likely rent with you later today. Initially it was difficult understanding all the what's. and why's when it came to the price difference. You did a good job explaining it.

Thanks again
Mike


You are the BEST!!!

Hi Steve,

You are the BEST!!!

Always soooooo helpful. I am really grateful to you and saved 20% from your suggestions. Plus the locations page is great!

THANK YOU!!! 

A happy customer,
Peggy


I will surely send customers your way!

Steve, You probably don't remember me, except maybe that I was the one who bugged you several times, and you helped out each time. Just wanted to drop you a note to say Thank You for helping us out with the car rentals on our vacation, which turned out nearly perfect. So far as Thrifty Car Rental, they are simply GREAT and I would refer them to anybody. In the midst of all the confusion with people arriving and leaving, they were polite, friendly and helpful. When we were leaving Oahu for Kauai, we somehow left two bags in the back of one of our cars. One of the bags was the camera bag with $700.00 or more worth of equipment in it. The depot called the shuttle driver who whipped a quick U-turn and went back to get them. A real class act. Please let your contact at Thrifty know how happy we were with them.

Thanks again for your patience and help in arranging this important part of our vacation. If we travel again, or if I hear of someone who needs rental cars, I will surely send them your way!
