We recently made a field day out of the rainy weather by venturing into Waikiki to run some errands and check out Enterprise’s car sharing service, Enterprise CarShare. It was much more fun than we regularly have because we weren’t using our car, it was a vehicle by Enterprise CarShare, giving us more of a thrill; different from a regular day driving our car.

Enterprise CarShare puts you in the driver’s seat and provides a new way of exploring Waikiki.

It’s simple to become a member! Here’s how to get started: apply online, get your member card and off you go! You can use the Enterprise CarShare app to view and rent vehicles in your area 24/7. This is also a great alternative if you don’t use your car as often as you hoped. It can be more economical than loaning/purchasing a car!

We used the Enterprise CarShare app to browse pick-up locations in the area, booked the perfect vehicle and picked it up from its designated spot.

Parking in Waikiki can be quite pricey. We recommend parking along the Ala Wai for free parking. Waikiki Zoo is also reasonable parking at $1 each hour. Monsarrat Avenue and Kalakaua Avenue has metered parking but it’s free on Sundays! If you park in any of these areas, it’ll limit your costs for your day in Waikiki.

EAT
