Book ahead for rental cars. Major car-rental agencies have booths outside the baggage-claim area, with complimentary shuttles to off-airport parking lots. Taxis wait curbside, or you can use an airport courtesy phone to call one. Average airport fares include Lihuʻe ($9 to $13), Poʻipu ($42 to $53) and Princeville ($89 to $119). For families or groups, it may be more economical to book an airport shuttle with Speedi Shuttle.
