For our recent trip to the Big Island of Hawaii, we knew for sure that we wanted to have a rental car. With the exception of visiting Lana’i, all of our Hawaii trips have included a rental car and the option to venture about and see the things we want while vacationing on the islands. It’s a freedom that we love, and it gives us a chance to experience the islands in a way that fits our schedule and needs.
Searching around, I found that DiscountHawaiiCarRental.com has some really competitive rates.
Our mission is to offer the most personalized service and the LOWEST RATES for your Hawaii car rental in true Aloha Spirit.
For just the two of us and a total of 7 days, we could rent an economy car for just over $130 before taxes and fees. That starts us off with a full tank of gas, unlimited mileage, and basically the roads at our desire. Sure we can’t go off-roading with this style car, but we’d take an excursion with a tour guide for that before we’d brave it ourselves anyway.
Easy to book online, make sure you write in the appropriate airport, dates of pickup and dropoff, and general requests for the car of your choice. Plenty of options such as convertibles, vans, and off-road vehicles are at your disposal plus if you need additional guidance around the islands you can add a GPS unit to your car.
Once you arrive in Kona on the Big Island, you head to baggage claim for bags if necessary and just outside the area you’ll find the shuttle spot.
Car rental companies are listed on the vans and take you right to the car rental station assigned to you. Before our trip, I printed the reservation confirmation and found myself in and out of the affiliated Avis Rent-a-Car office in 15 minutes. There I inspected my Chevy Cruze for pre-existing dents or scratches so I wouldn’t be held liable for damage. Keys in the ignition, we were off. The car took us safely about the island for over 440 miles (love that feature in the dash) before we filled up and returned the car on our last day. Checking our car back in only took a few minutes, shuttle was already in the parking lot and off to the terminal we went.
Staff was friendly, and despite being new, my agent was prompt and courteous and had a smile on her face. DiscountHawaiiCarRental.com works when visiting any of the islands and gives you a great and easy experience to have the freedom of taking yourself around at your leisure, be sure to look to them when you want to rent a car in Hawaii.
Our rental was discounted in exchange for our honest post. All opinions are our own.
