Getting Around Oahu > Taxis/Cabs on Oahu

To grab Taxis/Cabs at Honolulu Airport proceed through baggage claim and exit the Terminal. Cross the road to the center median strip to find the taxi stand, look for the taxi dispatchers. Fares are metered and a ride from Waikiki will cost around $40, depending on traffic.

Not all Taxis/Cabs in Hawaii accept credit cards, have cash on hand, or let the taxi dispatcher at Honolulu Airport know you can pay with a card only. A 10-15% tip for Taxi/Cab drivers is customary, plus $1 per bag for handling.

Taxis/Cabs on Oahu operate across the island. The easiest way to hail taxis in Waikiki is to make your way to the nearest hotel and ask the concierge to call you one, tip them a dollar to show your appreciation.
