Hawaii car hire information

What are the driving conditions like in Hawaii?

Roads throughout Hawaii are in reasonable condition and easy to travel so grabbing a cheap car rental is a good option. The perimeter of the island is served by a two-lane highway which is mostly straight. Roads in the interior are single lane and slightly more difficult to drive as they can be winding and often pass over high mountains with steep ravines on either side. A newly built highway also joins the islands east and west coasts. Drivers should also be aware of Hawaii’s changeable weather. You can expect tropical downpours, which severely limit visibility, thick fog, snow on the high mountain roads, and baking heat all on one journey. Other hazards to be aware of are falling rocks and sheer darkness. Because of the black lava landscape and the lack of streetlights, driving Hawaii’s interior is much darker than most drivers are used to. However, there is no reason to be put off renting a car in Hawaii. Holiday makers overwhelmingly report positive of experiences of driving in Hawaii.

What driving laws should I be aware of in Hawaii?

Hawaii doesn’t have any driving laws that will cause any problems or make car rental difficult. Like mainland America, cars drive on the right and must give way to pedestrians and other drivers. Drivers are permitted to turn right at red lights providing it is safe to do so. All car passengers must wear a seatbelt, and local police enforce this law stringently. Children under three must be placed in a rear safety seat and children up to seven-years-old will need a booster seat. Although not illegal, don’t honk your horn in Hawaii unless absolutely necessary as it is considered bad manners. Courtesy and driving in a relaxed manner are the unwritten rules in Hawaii.

What documents do I need to hire a car in Hawaii?

The car rental process is extremely easy in Hawaii. All you need is a valid driving licence and a passport or national identification card which proves that you are over 21. Drivers from non-English speaking countries will need an international driver’s licence which should be arranged in your home country.

Is it worth renting a car in Hawaii?

Car rental is a great idea in Hawaii. It’s a relatively large island and it can prove difficult to get around otherwise. To really explore the interior of the island and see all that Hawaii has to offer, car hire is essential. Central Hawaii is home to the Hawaii Volcanoes National Park where you’ll see active volcanoes and travel through steam vents on the Crater Rim Drive. The east coast boasts the Akaka Falls State Park. Amongst the lush rain forest, you can visit the Akaka Falls Waterfall. Further north, you’ll find the Waipi’ o Valley, a vast green coastal valley with cliffs, rivers, and lush green taro fields. The west coast has the Historic Kailua Village. Once a traditional fishing village, it’s now a vibrant seaside town and must-see destination. With so much to explore a cheap car hire will allow you to make the most of your time in Hawaii.
