Economy Car Features 

Economy rental cars provide room for four passengers and three bags, making them the perfect cars for small groups or families with one or two children. The cars from our Economy range at Car Rental Hawaii have air conditioning, automatic transmission, free amendments and additional free drivers depending on the model. 

Economy rental cars have manifold advantages which makes them a popular car for your Hawaiian holiday. In most of Hawaii’s bigger cities you will encounter heavy traffic and limited parking options. 

This is where a smaller-sized car comes in handy. They are easier to maneuver and will also fit into tighter parking spaces. They are also ideal for people who don’t plan long road trips with extended periods in the car, but hop from sight to sight. This way the luxurious interior of bigger cars is not necessary.

At Car Rental Hawaii we offer you a wide range of Economy cars that all have similar features. The Chevrolet Spark is a popular and reliable subcompact car that is also very fuel-efficient due to its size.

Need to Know: Economy Car


What do I have to take into consideration when booking an Economy rental car for Hawaii?

Since a lot of roads on the Hawaiian Islands are small and narrow, an Economy car is a sound choice if you are not travelling with more than four people. Economy rental cars are easy to handle and thus will greatly reduce your stress levels. 

However, if you plan a lot of tours and road trips to places with less well-maintained roads, a sturdier car like a Midsize SUV or a Standard SUV might be the better choice.

Questions on booking an Economy car

Yes, child car seats are available for $12-to-$15 per day at Alamo. Budget and Avis charge $13 per day. Dollar charges $13 per day. They come in three sizes: baby, toddler, and child. Ask the rental agent for a child car seat during pick-up.

After arriving at the airport, please ask for the designated area outside the baggage claim where the car rental agency shuttle buses pick up clients. Then take the bus for 2 minutes to get to the far side of the parking lot where the car agencies are located. The Alamo Agency in Honolulu is a 3-minute bus drive. Though one block further than the others, waiting for one minute longer sitting in a shuttle bus saves you 15% airport fees and taxes.
