Transportation

Visitors have many options for getting around and sightseeing in Hawaii.

Jeep Inter-Island Air: Aloha Airlines, Hawaiian Airlines and Island Air offer flights between all island. There are other smaller airlines and charter services available as well. Getting from Island to Island is by air is similar to taking a bus. There are flights leaving every 20 minutes. You can usually get to the airport early and take an earlier flight if there are seats available.

Hawaii-Xpert.com can include these flights as part of your vacation package. If you decide once you are there to visit another Island for the day, tickets can be purchased at ATM machines as well as at the airport.

Ground Transportation: Taxi, rental car/van, motor-coach, limousine, shuttle bus, moped rental, motorcycles, The Bus (Oahu only), bicycles, Pedicab (Oahu), walking , & Waikiki Trolley (Oahu).

Driving: Any visitor who drives in Hawaii must have a valid driver's license from another state. All car rentals require the presentation of a driver's license and major credit card. Most rental companies require renters to be 25 years old.

General Information: Horn honking is considered impolite. Drivers are unusually courteous, leaving the right of way to other merging cars, allowing pedestrians to cross safely, etc. Joggers, bikers and pedestrians have the right of way. Drivers will encounter many low-speed mopeds. Hawaii has a seat belt law so drivers must buckle up or face receiving a ticket. Children under the age of three must ride in car seats with belts on the (available from car rental agencies). Right turns are permitted from right lanes at stoplights, after a full stop, unless otherwise posted. Left turns are permitted at stoplights from left lanes on one-way streets onto another one-way street.

Car Rentals: All of the major car rental companies are available on almost all of the islands including: Alamo, Avis, Budget, Enterprise, Hertz, National, Payless, Sears and Thrifty. Hawaii-Xpert.com can offer excellent rates on car rentals when included in your vacation package. If you decide to rent a car once you are on the Islands, it is usually less expensive to rent them from the airport locations. If you are going to more than one island, it is generally less expensive and simpler to rent from one car company. You can usually take advantage of the lower weekly rates this way even though you will be using a car on several islands.You simply drop off your car on the island that you are leaving and there will be another car waiting for you on the next island from the same company.

Insurance: Hawaii is a no-fault state, which means that if you don't have collision damage insurance, you are required to pay for all damages before you leave the state, whether the accident was your fault or not. Your personal car insurance may provide rental-car coverage. Be sure to read your policy or ask your insurer before you leave home. The car rental companies offer optional insurance, which usually costs about $12 a day. If you decide to decline the insurance, it is a good idea to bring your insurance ID card with you. Some credit card companies provide collision damage insurance, you may want to find out if it is available from your company before you rent.

Alternative Transportation

In addition to the more traditional forms of transportation, you may be looking for a different or more exciting way to get around the Islands. Looking to rent a moped? Or is a Ferrari more your style?
