Hawaiian Rental Car Shortage Leaves Tourists Renting U-Haul Trucks 

Tens of thousands of travelers have flooded Hawaii this month. The state relaxed the mandatory ten-day quarantine policy, allowing travelers to present a negative COVID-19 test to bypass quarantine instead. A simple, rapid test (which only takes about 20 minutes) is required to visit Hawaii's beaches and resorts. The influx of travelers has strained the supply of rental cars as some tourists resort to renting U-Haul moving vans and trucks.

HawaiiNewsNow first reported the shortage of rental cars on Wednesday. The local newspaper said it's not uncommon to see tourists driving U-Haul vehicles around the islands. Last month, it was reported that rental car rates for a standard Toyota Camry jumped to $722 per day, from around the average of $100 due to shortage.

Actually, because of tax laws, renting a truck is cheaper than renting a car in Hawaii!
