Honolulu is a large international airport. There is usually a wait for the shuttle, then a 10 minute ride to the Rental Car lot. Expect the whole process to take 30-60 minutes. Pre-registered loyalty members can often skip the line and go straight to your car.

Maui is a larger airport, not nearly as big as Honolulu though. There is often a short wait for the train, then a 2 minute ride to the rental car center. Alternately, it’s about a 7 minute walk. Pre-registered loyalty members can often skip the line and go straight to your car.
Most of the course should be fine in a standard car. There are a couple spots where a 4 wheel drive could be helpful, but not required.
This reservation will overlap with Lanai.
Pickup: Wednesday, Oct 4, 8:00am
Return: Wednesday, Oct 4, 5:00pm
We are arriving & departing at the ferry docks. There are no mainstream rental car companies on this island. 4 wheel drive is necessary to provide support on the course. We recommend Turo. Check the details, many are unable to come to the docks & you will need to pickup in Lanai City. Let us know if this is the case and we can help with shuttle service.
Please share the course map with the rental car owner to ensure they are ok with the car going on these off-roads.
Lanai Cheap Jeeps is an option in town.
Pickup: Thursday, Oct 5, 6;30pm
Return: Saturday, Oct 7, or when you depart
Many US mainland flights are more direct from Kona (KOA) so book your flight home before your car rental reservation on this island so that you can book accordingly. If you are returning to KOA instead of ITO, as many of us are, you may find costco.com travel section to have the best rates. Many agencies charge a $150+ fee for the one way rental.
