Rental Car
Get around easily with a car rental

It’s a general form of transportation, since many people drive in Okinawa. Since you won’t be bound by time to freely go to places you’d like, it is popular among those with children or those travelling in groups. Most plans have a shuttle service included, so once you reserve it in advance, you won’t get lost.

There is a wide range of plans and car rental companies to choose from. There are also travel packages that include car rentals, so you can rent a car based on your preferred travel style.

Transportation Available from the Airport to the Car Rental Agency

Car rental companies will pick you up at the main entrance of the domestic terminal lobby and bring you to their agencies. Not all car rental companies are permitted to enter the low-cost carrier terminal, so please be sure to check with the company in advance.

Make good use of the expressway!

The expressway in Okinawa is an attractive option because it offers discounted rates!

The expressway offers smooth traveling from Naha to the resorts in Central Okinawa compared to local roads that are prone to traffic jams.

Beware of Bus Lanes!

One of the things to be aware of when driving in Okinawa are the bus lanes. Common vehicles including car rentals are prohibited from driving in these lanes during rush hours in the morning and evening for the purpose of relieving traffic and ensuring that buses remain on schedule. The hours vary by area, so please be sure to check before renting a car.

Choose a Car Rental with ETC

Toll booths that accept cash may get congested during certain hours when utilizing the expressway, but you can get through smoothly using ETC. ETC is an attractive system, as it also offers discounts during designated hours. Save money on your trip.
