Hertz in car rental in Hawaii

Famed for its warm white sands, crystal blue waters and exotic landscape, Hawaii is a tropical paradise. Despite becoming an American state in the late 1800s, you can look forward to soaking up an authentic cultural experience against a spectacular backdrop.

Car hire in Hawaii means you can drive down the winding island roads and experience their renowned beauty with ease. We have pick-up locations on all the eight main islands, including at Honolulu Airport, Hilo Airport and Lihue Airport. Wherever you’re going in Hawaii, we’ve got you covered.

 

Driving in and around Hawaii

Hawaii

While Hawaii might look tiny on a map next to mainland America, it’s surprisingly big and hiring a car is a great way to truly experience the wonders of the islands.

There are one or two differences when it comes to driving in Hawaii that are worth remembering.

As in the rest of the US, you’ll be driving on the right. Speed limits are measured in miles per hour, with distances also shown in miles. The roads are well signposted and generally in good condition, changing from convenient highways to winding mountain roads.

There are a number of interstate highways in Hawaii, the main one being Interstate H-1 on Oahu, which stretches for a little over 40 kilometers, along with a good network of smaller state highways.

The speed limits in Hawaii are generally lower than in the rest of the US. Limits on almost all highways are 55mph (88km/h) or lower, rising to 60mph (96km/h) on some stretches of the interstate highways.

To drive in Hawaii you’ll need a valid international driver licence written in English, so the one you have from home will be fine. Present your licence at your pick-up location and you’ll be on your way in no time.

A quick guide to Hawaii

There’s a real feeling of magic on each Hawaiian island. Whatever island you visit, you’ll be welcomed by the ‘aloha spirit’ and truly feel like you’re in paradise.

Be enchanted by Kauai

Kauai is known as the Garden Isle – and for good reason. This is a place that’s alive with colour. The mountains are a vivid earthy green, the waters sapphire blue and the sands a beautiful sugary white.

Swim in Kauai’s waters at Queens Bath, a unique tidepool filled with local sea life. To experience this Hawaiian wonder, take a short 45-minute drive up the H1-56N from Lihue Airport – along the way you’ll see the gorgeous east coast rolling past your window.

If you’re feeling even more adventurous, drive back down the HI-56 S from the direction you came for 15 minutes and dare to plunge into the waters of the Blue Room. Like many areas on the island, this wet cave with a secret back grotto is associated with Hawaiian spirits, so remember to treat the area as sacred.

The best way to taste Kauai is to shop at the local farmers’ markets. The most impressive one you’ll find is on the north shore of Hanalei, selling local and organic produce. Along with the mouth-watering fresh fruit and vegetables, the stunning backdrop makes the experience truly memorable.

Oahu

Known as the Gathering Place, Oahu is thriving with life, with the highest population out of all eight islands. From shark diving adventures on the north shore to sweet cocktails in the city, Oahu provides it all.

It’s here you’ll find Waikiki Beach – the Holy Grail of surfing. Once a playground for Hawaiian royalty, this stretch of beach is edged by skyscraper-high waves that bring in professional surfers from all over the world.

If you don’t want to ride the waves yourself, just lay back and watch the competition as you take in the surf skills on show and the picturesque setting.

Whether you enjoy shopping for high-trends or snorkelling at Hanauma Bay, Oahu will make your Hawaiian visit one to remember.

The Big Island

As its name suggests, the Big Island is the largest Hawaiian island by surface area. All the islands are unique, but this one really provides the ‘wow’ factor, not least for its volcanos.

Flying into Hilo International Airport, you’ll already be a short 30-minute drive away from the mesmerising Akaka Falls. Drive down HI-19 and then take in the drama on a walk alongside the falls as they plunge 130 metres into the gorge below. If you’re up for some hearty, healthy food, enjoy your breakfast at the Conscious Culture Café – famous for its buckwheat pancakes.

A Hawaiian trip also gives you the chance to seek out volcanos, and the Hawaii Volcanos Park makes for a great day out. Active wonders Kilauea and Mauna Loa are at the heart of the park, and you can often see their tips spurting fiery wonders.

Your Hawaii adventure will live long in memory. Whether you’re driving down the beautiful coastlines or up into the majestic mountains, car rental in Hawaii is the perfect way to make the most of your trip.
