Pros:

We were unable to go to Hawaii because of COVID. They charged us over $700.00 for a car we never used. I will never book thru Priceline or use Thrifty ever again. Trying to talk to them about this was a waste of time. They just kept repeating that the reservation was not cancelable.

Cons:

Recognize that the traveler can't foresee state law changes and that charging people for a car they never used is both immoral, bad business practice and pisses people off. I will never use Priceline or Thrifty again. And we travel all over the world.

No air conditioning in the building waiting to pick up our rental, long line, chickens at our feet, car wasn’t what we wanted, car had defects, oil change needed to be done, previous renters bluetooth info still in the car, could not connect my own device, the windows were defective… no room for our luggage.. the budget teller said it was an upgrade. Would you consider this an upgrade? I would hate to see what I upgraded from…

KAYAK

Pros:

The staff member was EXCELLENT and the size of the vehicle suited our needs.

Cons:

#1 We had an hour wait in line (with a toddler) and no seating available. Then another hour wait in the hawaii sun with no seating available to take possession of the vehicle. Total of a 2 hour wait to get our vehicle. #2 The vehicle was FILTHY inside, numerous dings, scratches and paint chips to the exterior. The interior rooftop trim was hanging down and the transmission cut out numerous times during the week; causing a false sense of security when thinking the vehicle was parked in (P).

KAYAK

Pros:

Arrived and Budget had no cars despite us having a reservation. Talked to one person who finally received a car after waiting 5-1/2 hours!!! I called the Budget national number and they said that “ other reservation services like Kayak generate reservation numbers without actually having cars”

Cons:

I guess the lesson learned is NOT to reserve vehicles through a 3rd party and NOT deal with Budget who obviously did not even offer any sort of solution.

Aug 2017

KAYAK

Pros:

The car was fine. The staff is very reasonable and friendly given the challenge at the Lihue-Kauai location.

Cons:

The shuttle buses are too small to accommodate the demand after a flight arrives, so you may have to wait several shuttles to get onboard and to the rental car location. Once there, the line is slow--- not uncommon for rental agencies, but one would think they could figure this out. Most damning, After waiting in line for the rental car and getting the paperwork finalized, we had to wait another half hour for the car to be ready. They said it was being cleaned. We waited with another 40 people. There has got to be a better way to run this location. There's either a management problem or a shortage of employees.

KAYAK

Pros:

The woman outside checking on reservations was very kind. The billing was not easy to understand. When you place the order it says you were charged the quoted amount. When you are at the counter they give you an additional bill. Seemed to add up to the original amount but was confusing.

Cons:

The billing part could have been better. The car was not very clean inside but was a good car and comfortable. The staffing was very understaffed. Three car rental companies inside and only one or two staff. Should be one staff person per car company. Very long wait in line.

Cons:

Pick up and drop off was chaotic, customer service was very poor. Picking up the car took an hour because of long lines and slow service. It was clear they were backed up and did not have enough vehicles clean and ready to rent. Drop off was also poor, the return area was poorly marked and the attendant did nohad promptly acknowledge us or assist in directing us for our return.

They will give your car "away" if you are running late and then only have higher end vehicles that they upsell you on. Happened to several people, seems like a pattern-even though you have a non-refundable deposit -they will give your car away if an hour later than time you designate. Class action anyone?

I liked the ease of pick up; I was allowed to go out and choose any car on a particular row that was in the category I had reserved. I wasn't given any high-pressure treatment, trying to get me to upgrade to something I didn't need or buy an unnecessary insurance policy Then it was just a matter of looking the car over for any scratches and proceeding out to our destination. The return was equally straightforward. I applaud the company for this most appreciated streamlined approach!

From the time we were picked up at the airport to the time of return we were always greeted with friendly, helpful, professional staff.

Car was comfortable - outwardly seemed clean - staff was nice

Cons:

Car smelled like cat pee almost from the time we drove out. The operation was very small and not what we expected from a front line car rental company - obviously contracted out. Not much inventory to pick from and I felt the professionalism was lacking - would never rent from them again. Gave us an uneasy feeling in regards to the paperwork we were given in the onset.

Top tips for hiring a car at Lihue Airport

  • A car is the best way to move from Lihue Airport (LIH) to various parts of Kuai. It is also the only means of getting around for tourists because the available bus service only caters to residents. On the other hand, taxis are scarce; hence they do not make the most reliable means of transportation when you have a day full of activities. Consider a car rental at Lihue Airport if you want to get the most out of the time you'll be spending in Kauai. Enjoy the security and comfort of driving a well-maintained car on the many scenic routes of this Hawaiian island.
  • First, think about where you are going before booking a vehicle model through our website. A compact car is probably easier to drive alone in the town of Lihue, while a full-size SUV is perfect for cruising mountainous regions such as Waimea Canyon State Park. Or you can choose a convertible to soak in the tropical air and rich scenery along Kuhio Highway on your way to Ke'e Beach.
  • All you need to make reservations at Lihue Airport car rental is to fulfill the driver's requirements regarding age and driving license. Most companies will give out cars to renters who are 21 years or older. Some rent out to younger drivers (aged 21 - 25) at an additional fee, so read their payment policy carefully. Don't forget your voucher, passport, ID, and credit card.
  • Being one of the busiest Hawaiian airports, LIU receives a multitude of travelers every day. You will want to avoid traffic when picking or dropping off your rental car. Most passengers arrive at around 8 am to 10 am to catch flights, so you can anticipate traffic delays at this time. You might also want to return the vehicle at the airport location earlier than 4 pm before the evening rush hours catch up with you. Moreover, understanding TSA wait times can help plan a flight out of LIH. Return your car an hour before your scheduled flight as security gets busy when large planes are leaving.
  • Book your car hire at Lihue Airport at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
