People wait for the shuttle bus

People wait for the shuttle bus. The bus stop is outside, so it is physically tough if you wait in the hot summer.

When renting a car in Okinawa, many people use a rental car company near Naha Airport. It is convenient as there are a lot of rental car offices within a 10-minute drive from Naha Airport, and after getting off the plane, the staff will provide a shuttle bus to the office.
On the other hand, it is very crowded because of its popularity, and it may take a long time to wait for the shuttle bus as well as to complete the booking procedure at the office.
It may take two hours to rent a car during the busy season, such as summer season or consecutive holidays.

If you do not want to waste time on your trip, we have a rent a car option that is recommended for you.

Customer Review

It was good because I could go to the office by large shuttle bus, but it was a consecutive holiday, so there were a lot of customers which caused a long waiting time to rent the car.

The whole process took two hours from arriving at the airport to renting the car.

There was no waiting time. I think the office here is more vacant than the airport office.

I spent less time at the city office than the airport office. It was also useful because it is near the station of Yui Rail.
