FAQ
How can I pay for my rental car?
Payment for a rental car should preferably be made by credit card. It is possible to pay by debit card, however at the rental counter you will need a credit card issued to the main driver in order to secure the deposit for your rental car.
Who is allowed to drive the rental car and what are the conditions?
A rental car can be driven by a main driver, that is the person registered in the booking. Additional drivers may be added to the reservation at extra fee. The main and additional drivers are to present a valid driving license, which they have been in possession of for at least one year (please refer to the rental conditions), and a valid identity card/passport. Additionally, the main driver is to present a valid credit card issued in their name.
Do I have to pick up and return the car at any time? What happens if I am late for pick-up?
We recommend that you pick up the car at the agreed time as the availability of the car cannot be guaranteed in case of a delay. As a rule, local suppliers keep vehicles available up to 30 or 60 minutes after the agreed time. If a delay is inevitable, please contact the rental agency (you will find their contact details on the voucher).
What documents are required to pick up the vehicle?
When picking up the vehicle, the main driver is to present the following documents: the printed voucher, their identity card or passport; their driving's license and their valid credit card.

Kona (HI) Attractions and Travel Tips

Cheap Car Rental Kona (HI)
Car Rental in Kona

If you're visiting the Big Island, Kona is a must-see. This charming town is home to historical buildings, volcanic parks, and beautiful beaches. In one small zone you'll see the best of Hawaii, all mixed together. Use car hire in Kona to get around the town and to see the rest of the Big Island. With cheap car rental in Kona, you'll enjoy maximum control over your Hawaiian vacation.

What can I see in Kona?

For a taste of Hawaiian history, drive your Kona car rental to Hulihe'e Palace. Built in 1838, this charming building was once the vacation home of the Hawaiian royal family, built out of lava rock. After the end of the Hawaiian Kingdom, it was converted into a museum. Today, you can see artifacts, furniture, and other interesting items from the days of Hawaiian royalty.

Another important historical building is the Mokuaikaua Church, the oldest Christian church in the Hawaiian archipelago. Easily accessible with a rental car in Kona, this stone building was completed in 1837. Inside, you can see a scale replica of the Thaddeus, the ship that first brought American missionaries to the islands.

Tip

What would Hawaii be without the beach? You'll find plenty of options all over the Big Island, but one of the best is the Old Kona Airport Beach State Park. Get there in your Kona car hire in the early evening for an incredible Hawaiian sunset or come during the day to see the traditional activities of surfing and spearfishing.

***

Hiking around Kona

No one who comes to Hawaii should miss the unique landscapes that the islands have to offer. One of the best spots to immerse yourself in nature is the Kaloko-Honokohau National Historical Park. Step out of your cheap carhire in Kona and explore this intriguing area, which includes beaches, wetlands, and trails crisscrossing the water. You'll see traditional Hawaiian fishing canoes here, as well as plenty of sea life. Take a hike or enjoy snorkeling or scuba diving in the bay.

Another hiking hotspot is Hualalai, an imposing volcano. There are some great nature reserves to explore on its slopes, which you can get to quickly and easily with car rentals in Kona. This still-active volcano last erupted in 1801 and is expected to blow again sometime in the 21st century – but don't worry, volcanologists aren't predicting that it will happen anytime soon!

When is the best time to visit Kona?

Thanks to the nearby mountains, Kona has its own special microclimate. Unlike most of the Hawaiian Islands, its rainy season is in the summer, and it's at its driest between November and March. This makes it ideal for a winter break. Rent a car in Kona to escape the colder months back home and enjoy a taste of tropical sunshine.

Getting around the Big Island

As well as the town, you'll probably want to explore the rest of the Big Island – and the best way to do that is with low cost car hire in Kona. This way, you can easily pick up a vehicle in town and take it all over the island. Remember, if you're planning to spend a lot of time in Hawaii's many state parks, the best car rental in Kona for you might be a 4x4.

What other parts of Big Island should I visit?

With cheap rental cars in the United States, getting around Hawaii couldn't be easier. Drive from Kona to the Hawaii Volcanoes National Park to visit Kilauea and Mauna Loa. Lovers of nature should also visit Akaka Falls State Park and Punalu'u Beach with its black volcanic sand. All of these are easily reached with rental cars in Kona.
