KAYAK’s top tips for hiring a car in Kailua-Kona

  • Make sure you have all your documents ready when you pick up your hire car in Kailua-Kona. If you have an Australian driver's licence, you will need an International Driver's Permit when driving in Hawaii. Make sure you present this along with your regular driver's licence at the car hire centre and any time you're asked to present your licence by a police officer. Like in Australia, debit cards are usually only accepted if they're Visa or Mastercard and most companies prefer credit card payment. Note that cheap car hire in Kailua-Kona will likely not come with insurance. You may receive coverage through your travel insurance or credit card but always double-check and take out extra coverage if you need to.
  • Electric vehicles are a great option for cheap car hire in Kailua-Kona, especially with the introduction of congestion charges at some locations in Hawaii. There are a number of charging stations around the island. Shopping centres are a great place to find them, with chargers at Keauhou Shopping Center and Kona Commons Shopping Center. You can also charge your electric car at Palamanui University. Hertz and Enterprise are two major companies that may offer electric vehicles.
  • There are a few important road rules to remember when driving your hire car in Kailua-Kona. When driving in Hawaii, you'll need to drive on the right-hand side of the road and get used to reading speed limits in miles instead of kilometres. It's not uncommon for animals to cross the road, particularly at night, so be alert to your surroundings at all times. Don't forget to signal 100 metres before your turn (but don't be surprised when others don't). Finally, bear in mind that the blood alcohol limit is 0.08%.
  • Renting a car certainly adds another dimension to any trip to Hawaii. With a car you can get around the island cheaply and quickly. This is particularly so for visitors to Kailua Kona, as from the town you can go by car to both Rainbow Falls State Park and Hawaii Volcanoes National Park. You could also take the chance to drive up the summit of Mauna Kea.
  • Is picking up the hire car step one of your trip to Hawaii? Well, if your flight lands at Kona International Airport, you will find all hire car facilities are actually located off-site, and you will need to take a shuttle to them. However, this will not be a big problem, thanks to the continuous shuttle pick up and drop off; no matter when your plane lands, the wait shouldn’t be more than a minute or two.
  • If you are looking to drive down Saddle Road on the Big Island, one thing to keep in mind is that, at times, the radio options can become quite limited and even occasionally non-existent. Thus, it is highly advised to bring a few CDs or other means of music just to keep yourself and your passengers as you loop around the island.
  • While Kailua-Kona may not have full-on rush hour, the town does occasionally experience varying degrees of traffic and congestion. In particular, Highway 11 and Henry Street can become backed up and bogged down during peak hours from 8:00 a.m. to 9:00 a.m. and from 5:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m.
  • 25% of our users found a car hire in Kailua-Kona for $62 or less
  • Book your car hire in Kailua-Kona at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Intermediate hire cars in Kailua-Kona are around 40% cheaper than other car types, on average

Insights shared by verified travellers who hired a car in Kailua-Kona 
Verified travelerMar 2024
Kona was perfect! The only advice i can offer is to stay for more than 1 day.
Verified travelerMar 2024
You can walk to the rental cars faster than you can take a shuttle.
Verified travelerApr 2024
Nissan Rogue was a good idea.
Verified travelerJan 2024
Buy the insurance, people drive a little crazy there and I witnessed an accident in the parking lot.
Verified travelerDec 2023
Always add an extra 15-30 minutes for the small town traffic and trying to find parking!
Verified travelerOct 2023
You can park across the street from most places and not have to deal with the parking website and pay $15-$20 per spot. Check out the mom and pop restaurants and coffee places. Ask the locals where’s a good place to eat? We had wonderful experience. Check out everything and have a good time and buy the trinkets on the last day.
BlakeAug 2023
It’s island driving so be ready for a slower lifestyle and relax.
Verified travelerAug 2023
Great place to visit. Parking was easy to find
TroyJuly 2023
Double check to make sure the car you are renting is from the airport otherwise you may have to Uber into town.
Verified travelerAug 2023
Try to avoid picking up during peak hours.
Verified travelerMay 2023
Driving on the big island was very good...not nearly as busy as Honolulu.

FAQs about hiring a car in Kailua-Kona

  • What type of car is recommended for driving in Kailua-Kona?

    For the most part, any size vehicle will be perfectly suitable for Kailua Kona. However, more adventurous tourists may want to consider renting a 4WD vehicle, such as a Jeep, so they can take advantage of the smaller roads in the outlying areas of the island. Parking also won’t be an issue for even the largest of vehicles, so there are no limiting factors on that front.

  • What’s the speed limit in Kailua-Kona?

    In comparison to other states in the U.S., Hawaii has particularly low speed limits, with the highest speed limits on highways (a mere 60 mph). However, aside from the low highway speeds, the speed limits are mostly the same as they are in other parts of the U.S. In general, drivers can expect speed limits of 25 mph to 40 mph on urban roads. It should also be noted that many of the mountainous roads have very low speed limits that can vary widely, so prepare to have to drive slowly.

Cons:

Horrible experience at pick-up. Had to wait for over an hour to get a car, sitting on the pavement. Alamo did not have the cars to cover the reservations. Manager gave me, and others, a free tank of gas (by telling us to return the cars without filling up the gas tank) as an apology for the mess at pick-up. That was considerate, but, when i dropped the car off i was given no receipt from Alamo. When i checked my credit card statement, I saw that Alamo had charged me nearly $70 more than the rental agreement. Clearly, that was for filling up the gas tank that I was told to return empty as a courtesy. I sent Alamo an email two days ago about this. NO response so far.

Cons:

I wish they'd had the car I'd reserved ready. Originally they tried pushing a crossover on me and even the car I got was not the one I reserved. Given how expensive gas is in Hawaii, I reserved a compact on purpose, and was disappointed to not receive one.

Only problem was that the pick up process was between 90 and 120 minutes. The wait line was about 30 minutes. The person behind the counter was stressed out (new employee) and it took about 90 minutes to get my vehicle. Drop off was easy (5 minutes). And they billed me exactly what they quoted me.

In general our rental experience in Hawaii was fine. Pick up was crazy due to the amount of customers and not enough rental agents. However, the agents themselves were very pleasant & professional, despite several disgruntled customers. Our rental was a brand new model, was clean and waiting for us after 90 minutes in line. Would rent via Kayak/Hertz again.

I stood in line for 1 1/2 hours to get the car. And when I got in the car, I found out they had rented the same car to someone else. They upgraded me but when I drove away I noticed the tank was only 3/4 full.

Pros:

Staff was friendly and helpful. We were having to wait a long time while they cleaned a recent return that was supposed to be ours so they just gave us a larger SUV that was already cleaned and ready to go at no additional cost.

Pros:

5 of the 6 previous categories should be excellent instead of good. the excellent button didn't work as a choice

Cons:

the only drawback was the inside windshield was pretty bad. Not washed very well.

Pros:

Very easy pick up and return.

Cons:

The key fob to our Jeep ran out of batteries on the 2nd day. As a result, had to get the car towed and exchange the car. While that process was fairly smooth, it effectively blew the entire morning. At the counter, the agent told me that the Jeep's key batteries commonly run out after 4 months. He also told us the trick on how to get the Jeep started again. Had we known, it would have saved the hassle of the tow.

We were downgraded to a car we didn’t want. We reserved a Kia Soul but were given a Kia forte. The batteries in the key fob were drained and the key fob didn’t work. I had to manually lock and unlock doors. When we asked for a receipt when we returned the rental the representative at Avis was rude and unhelpful. I still don’t have a receipt for the rental.

KAYAK

Pros:

Easy and efficient drop off

Cons:

I paid for insurance when booking through KAYAK and was then told there was no insurance on the car. This was an unpleasant surprise after a flight. Travelling with a baby (after a flight) I didn’t have the luxury of time to go through emails and booking details to find out where the confusion (or dishonesty) was. Turned out I bought separate insurance not linked to Avis and the car through KAYAK. So I ended up paying twice and the overall deal was a lot more expensive than it should have been. The Avis attendant also wouldn’t stop chatting unnecessarily so I couldn’t concentrate on the business of getting the car asap and my family to our accommodation. The car was OK but not clean enough but I guess acceptable for a rental.
