A new Consolidated Rent-A-Car (Conrac) facility opened at the Daniel K. Inouye International Airport (HNL) on Dec. 1, 2021, the Hawaii Department of Transportation announced.

Multiple car rental services will operate from the five-story, 1.8 million square foot facility: Alamo Rent A Car, Avis Car Rental, Budget Rent A Car, Dollar Rent A Car, Enterprise Rent-A-Car, Hertz, National Car Rental, Payless Car Rental, Sixt Rent A Car, and Thrifty Car Rental. An Associated Press report says there will be room for 4,500 vehicles.

The $377 million project to construct the permanent facility began in 2016, with funding coming entirely from a daily customer facility charge of $4.50 for all rental cars.

A dedication was held for the new facility on Nov. 30, where Gov. David Ige noted the importance of airport modernization projects.

Hawaii Department of Transportation Director Jade Butay added, “The HNL Conrac started with the planning for the $2.6 billion airport modernization program and continued with the interim Conrac that allowed us to move the five car rental companies from the 11 acres we needed to make the permanent Conrac a reality.”
