Car Rental Alternative

Car Rental Alternative

There’s more than one way to visit all of Oahu’s wonderful sights. For those who plan a lot of daily roaming, a rental car is your obvious choice of transport. However, Charley’s Taxi offers a more economical alternative if you don’t need a car every day of your stay. Plus you’ll avoid the hassle of the airport’s rental car pick-up situation while construction in on-going.

Please note: Charley’s Taxi does not rent cars.


Consider the average cost of a 7-day full size sedan rental:

7-day full size sedan rental $1,090
Parking $420
Gas $150
TOTAL $1,660

Alternatively, Charley’s Taxi can take you from the airport to your hotel, and back. We can also take you to and from Pearl Harbor and anywhere else you’d like to go. Consider us your on-call chauffeur.


If you still want to get out and see Oahu on your own, a 2-day car rental is a good option.

Round trip airport transfer with Charley’s $66
Pearl Harbor round trip with Charley’s $96
2-day full size sedan rental $400
Parking $120
Gas $60
TOTAL $742

With $918 in savings, you get more money to do the things you enjoy. And with Charley’s doing the driving everyone gets to enjoy looking out the window.
