Charley’s Taxi is the fastest and most cost effective way to go to and from Honolulu International Airport. Unlike the shuttle services, which charge per person, Charley’s Taxi charges per car, so you can have four passengers for the price of one. We’ll take you directly to your destination, no driving all over Waikiki, going from hotel to hotel, like the shuttles.

We offer two ways to go, a full service VIP experience and very economical Flat Rates.


Advance reservations are recommended to ensure prompt service upon arrival.

Charley’s Taxi Flat Rates are discounted from the regular meter rate and are a great way to go to and from the Airport. You’ll save money and enjoy peace of mind because these discounted, fixed rates don’t change if there’s bad traffic. You’ll save time because we’ll take you directly to your hotel, unlike the shuttles. And when arriving at HNL you can skip the line at the taxi stands.

WAIKIKI — $29  (typical meter is $35-38) — Check Map
AULANI — $55 (typical meter: $65-75)

Discounted Flat Rates are one way, per car, and do not include extra stops or route deviations. Driver is required by law to run the meter on Flat Rate trips and will adjust final meter rate down to the appropriate Flat Rate at the end of the trip. Driver will charge regular meter rate for the trip if any extra stops or route deviations are requested. Valid for up to 4 passengers with bags (1 suitcase & carry-on per person). No other discounts apply. Gratuities and G.E. Tax not included.

Due to traffic congestion and delays, Charley’s Taxi will suspend Flat Rates and revert to taximeter rates on Halloween, Black Friday, and New Year’s Eve (from 3pm on 12/31 to 3am on 1/1). We may also suspend Flat Rates 2 hours before, during, and 2 hours following major Holidays, Sporting Events, Concerts, and major road closures.

$5.00 extra charge for each bicycle, golf bag, surfboard or items over 80 pounds, or over 10 cubic feet in size. Driver will charge $5.00 each for additional terminal drop-offs. Passengers who damage or soil the taxi will be responsible for a $350 cleaning fee.


We offer our VIP Full Service Airport packages to Waikiki, Disney’s Aulani and Turtle Bay with a variety of vehicle options. Reserve your ride and relax in your own private car, van or limo.
