Car Rental FAQs

What are the requirements to rent a car in Hilo?

Car rentals in Hilo require the renter to be at least 18 years old. Keep in mind, though, that most car rental locations in Hilo will charge an underage driver fee for anyone under the age of 25. If you are renting and you are 21 or older, you will need to have a major credit or debit card in your name. All renters, regardless of age, must have a valid driver’s license with no restrictions. If you are looking for Hilo car rentals and you’re not a US citizen, you will also need to provide your International Driver’s Permit and your valid passport when you pick up your rental.

What are the rules for driving in Hilo?

The rules for driving in Hilo are pretty standard along with the driving rules in the rest of the US. Perhaps the most important thing to note is that it’s illegal to use your cell phone at all while driving. If you need to use your phone, you need to pull over to the side of the road and turn the engine off before using it. Speed limits in Hilo change often, and Hawaii’s speeding penalties are strict, so keep your eye out for signs indicating any change. Seat belts are required for all passengers and children will need to ride in safety seats. It is prohibited to drive under the influence of alcohol and a blood alcohol content of 0.08% is considered a DUI. It is always a good idea to check with Hilo's Department of Motor Vehicles for any recent law changes before your trip.

What kind of car is recommended for driving in Hilo?

If you are looking for car rentals in Hilo, you may want to look for an electric car rental, if possible. The gas prices are significantly higher in Hawaii than in the mainland US because of the shipping costs, so if you get an electric car, you’ll save on gas money. Otherwise, you’ll likely want a sedan or a smaller SUV, something fuel-efficient because you’ll be relying on this to get around the island with the lack of public transport. Hilo car rentals like a small sedan will also allow easy parking at the beach or within the downtown area.

What are the best places to park in Hilo?

Parking your car in Hilo can be somewhat challenging. If you are staying at a hotel, most hotels in the area will provide overnight parking for an additional fee. If you are out and about during the day, there is a lot of metered parking within the city. However, be sure to read all signs posted in your chosen parking area to avoid any mishaps. Many of the attractions you’ll visit, including beaches and national parks, will have their own parking for a small fee, as well.
