Renting a Car

renting a car on oahu

If you decide to rent a car, be sure you have parking at your rental. Parking in Waikiki is difficult most of the time. There is parking along Ala Wai Blvd that runs along the Ala Wai Canal on north side of Waikiki. Just make sure to read the parking signs, as they clean the streets twice a week in the morning and they will give you a ticket and tow your car.
