Car Rental Hawaii is committed to obtain the best possible deals for Australia travelers coming to Hawaii looking for renting a car. You certainly start by choosing a car or car-size. But don’t forget to think about your personal insurance needs. We want to inform you about your insurance options, so you can make the appropriate choice when you decide to book a rental car.
Our standard deals include Basic Insurance only — just enough to legally drive the car. This is because most Americans have their own car insurance covering their personal needs. If you’ll rent the car with Basic Insurance and anything will happen to the car or towards others, it is your liability. If you add insurance at the counter, it will cost up to $55 per day on top of the confirmed rate.
We want to avoid this unpleasant experience and offer you what is called: Insurance Package Deal. This includes 100% Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) and up to $1 million additional Liability Insurance (EP). Furthermore, you get also one additional driver and one free tank of gas (you pick up the car full and return it empty). Booking this Insurance Package Deal is most often cheaper than the rate with no insurance included. A non-US driver's license is needed to qualify for this deal!
We offer two ways to book a rental car with us:
For Hawaii the same visa rules apply as for any visit to the USA. Make sure you have a valid driver’s license for the USA. It is rather warm and sunny in Hawaii most of the year, so pack lightly, but don’t forget some clothing for occasional rain. Whether you visit Hawaii on a cruiseship or come here by plane to one of the airports, car rental opportunities are always nearby.
There are so many books and websites and pictures you can use to help plan and prepare for your stay. You can either prepare your visit with a detailed plan which you follow, or "go with the flow" and on each new day freshly decide what you will do. In any case, it’s good to have a good overview of the Hawaiian Islands — Maui, Kauai, Oahu and Big Island — and what they offer. A rental car gives you the flexibility on each island to explore it freely and spontaneously or to go on long trips.
1. When planning your Hawaii holiday, first decide whether you like the bustling crowds of tourists during the summer and winter season or prefer the quieter off-season months.
2. Are you more of a nature-loving hiker and beach-goer or do you prefer road trips to the idyllic villages? Hawaii offers a wide range of holiday possibilities for any taste.
3. Choose your perfect accommodation: hotel, condo, luxury resort or B&B, depending on what your plans and preferences are.
