Hawaii Superferry yesterday announced it has completed agreements with major rental car companies in Hawai'i so customers can drive rental cars on and off the Alaka'i, which now makes daily roundtrip voyages between Maui and O'ahu.

Companies that have signed the agreements: Hertz Rent A Car, Dollar/Thrifty Automotive Group, Alamo/National Rent A Car, Avis/Budget Group, U-Haul, Ryder, and JN Car & Truck Rental.

"We are pleased to partner with Hawai'i's rental car and truck companies to make travel on the Alakai a seamless process," said Terry O'Halloran, Superferry's director of business development. "Having these agreements in place makes it easier for our customers driving rental vehicles, particularly visitors to our islands, who will now only need to get their keys once from rental car companies, leaving them more time to enjoy the Islands."

For more details and information on interisland travel restrictions on a rental car or truck, contact the rental companies directly. Contact information for rental car companies partnered with Hawaii Superferry can be found at www.HawaiiSuperferry.com.

Current bookings project May's traffic to include more than 21,000 passengers and 5,800 vehicles.

Hawaii Superferry is offering $39 passenger and $55 passenger vehicle one-way promotional fares for travel through June 5. The $49 passenger/$65 passenger vehicle one-way summer promotional fares are good for travel through Sept. 30 and do not include taxes and fees.
