About US

Aloha! Rip Tide Car Rental is a locally owned, small business that caters to kamaaina, military, and tourists alike. Two friends created this partnership with the belief that Oahu needed another, better avenue in the rental car market. We offer straightforward, competitive pricing with no hidden fees. Our pricing is designed to offer both individuals and families a better solution for short and long-term rentals alike. 

Need a vehicle for a long weekend? The price is what you see, including tax. Did you get in a wreck and are awaiting parts from the mainland and your insurance company doesn't cover your rental? While you wait for those 14 days, know that we will offer you a 2.5% discount as a medium-term rental. PCS'ing from the mainland and your car is somewhere in the Pacific? We've got your back and can offer you a 5% discount for 30-day rentals and a 10% discount on rentals over 60 days. 

We offer convenient vehicle delivery and returns at many locations throughout the island. Our booking system is easy to navigate and shows updated availability. However, please feel free to contact customer service if you don't see the dates or times you are looking for. Mahalo!
