    Hawaii (KITV) — As Hawaii sees an influx of visitors, some are getting creative when it comes to renting cars as many are noting difficulties with availability.

Tourists are renting vehicles from U-Haul because of a recent shortage of rental vehicles in the islands.

U-Haul’s Hawaii president says they’ve seen a considerable uptick in rentals primarily for their pickup trucks and cargo vans.

The company says reservations last between a few days to a week, and customers have told them their rental fleet options are more affordable than traditional rental vehicles.

U-Haul stresses that its focus remains on residential movers.
