Recomendations for best car rental company?

I will be on Oahu from May 12-20th and would like to rent a car. I have checked the forum for past info but much of it is from 2006-2008 so most likely outdated. I have a had TERRIBLE experience renting from Advantage inthe past and refuse to rent from them again. There is a good deal for a convertible with Thrifty for $252 for 8 days but Yelp reviews weren't great with that company. I usually rent from Alamo but their prices are quite a bit more expensive. Should I just go with Alamo even if they are more expensive? Any feedback or suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks in advance.

Have you checked the other major agencies?

Some people have had success with Costco, Priceline, or discounthawaiicarrental.com.

Occasionally, there are discount codes floating around for one rental agency or another.

Was your search for customer satisfaction or pricing? I think price is the more common topic.

I use Dollar. I usually check the other majors, and I check the Rent-a-car websites that give you a choice. Yet I keep on coming back to Dollar because it either has the cheapest by far, or at worst, it has equal prices.

I'm only renting for 12 hours and got a great price, relatively speaking, from the Waikiki office. Hertz, Avis, etc. were double.

I'll second discounthawaiicarrental.com. I got a SMOKIN deal on a mini-van for a week and a half.
