March 1, 2012 (Waikiki, HI) – Alamo Rent A Car, the largest car rental provider to international customers visiting North America, today announced the opening of a new branch serving customers in Waikiki. This new branch extends the Alamo network in Oahu Island, Hawaii by adding to the existing Alamo locations at the Honolulu International Airport, the Disney Aulani Resort & Spa and Waikiki Discovery Bay. 

“Alamo is excited to provide no-hassle rentals at the most popular travel destinations throughout the United States, Canada, Mexico, the Caribbean, Latin America and Asia,” said Paul Kopel, vice president and general manager for Alamo Rent A Car in Hawaii. “We are pleased to be expanding in Waikiki and to offer Alamo’s low rental rates and convenient services to travelers visiting this beautiful destination from all over the world.” 

The new Waikiki Kaiulani branch is centrally located at 151 Kaiulani Avenue in downtown Waikiki near several major hotels. To serve international travelers, the Alamo branch is staffed with Asian and European bilingual rental agents and the vehicles at this location are outfitted with GPS devices that communicate in multiple languages, including Japanese, Korean and Chinese. Along with electric vehicles and charging stations for customer use, this location is equipped with a full range of vehicles including convertibles and SUVs. Reservations can be made by visiting www.alamo.com or by calling 1-800-462-5266. Alamo also has websites available in 17 different languages. 

Alamo is a recognized technology innovator, with the industry’s first and only online check-in system since 2005, as well as more than 171 self-service kiosks at 63 U.S. locations, which earned it the “Extra Mile Award” from Budget Travel magazine in 2007. Alamo customers in the U.S. are able to conveniently choose their own vehicles, based upon their advance reservation and requested car class, and then simply drive away from the airport.
