Car Rental FAQs

What are the requirements to rent a car in Hawaii?

You need to be at least 21 if you’re looking for car rentals in Hawaii. To rent one, you need a valid driver’s license as well as a debit card or credit card in your name.  Younger drivers – those under 25 – are typically limited in their choice of car rentals in Hawaii. They are subject to an added young driver surcharge. For car renters over the age of 25, the surcharge is removed, and they can choose from a greater variety of Hawaii car rentals. International drivers need to bring a license from their home country. If it’s not written in the Roman alphabet, then an International Driver’s License is required as well.

What are the rules for driving in Hawaii?

Rental cars in Hawaii need to abide by the driving laws of the state. Drivers should be on the road’s right side unless they’re safely passing another vehicle. Adults and older kids are required to buckle up their seat belts while driving. Younger children should be in a car seat that’s securely fastened. Drinking and driving with a blood alcohol content above 0.08% is against the law and can lead to serious consequences. Speed limit signs are usually posted on the roads, but if not, standard speeds are 25 mph for residential areas, 50 mph for urban freeways near the city, and 60 mph for rural freeways that are sparsely populated. These laws are subject to change, so it’s recommended to check with the local DMV in Hawaii before getting car rentals in Hawaii.

What type of car is recommended for driving in Hawaii?

Rental car recommendations depend a lot on budget, intended destination, and the amount of passengers. If you’re planning a family vacation or to head out with a group of friends, then a passenger van rental like the Ford E-Series or a minivan like the Nissan Quest might be a good fit because there’s plenty of room for bags and passengers. Those on a budget looking for a reliable and cheap car rental in Hawaii may consider an economy car rental like the Chevrolet Spark or a compact car rental like a Nissan Versa. If you want to drive along scenic rural roads without making a loud noise, consider an electric car rental like the Tesla Model S.
