As a leading Hilo car rental provider, we offer our visitors access to name brand agencies and a choice of locations


Hilo Town Car Rental Locations on the Big Island

Hilo is on the east side of the Big Island

There are six big districts on the island of Hawaii. The majority of tourists arrive by flight at one of our commercial airports, including Hilo International Airport. Others arrive by cruise ship. Whichever describes you, the biggest issue upon arrival is getting around. Public transportation is minimal; therefore the solution is Hilo rental cars.

Locations and Discounts

Most companies have locations at the Airport. Enterprise is the only Hilo in-town rental location. It is considered a non-airport, off-airport, in-town, local, or home location. As such, you get an automatic non-airport discount because you will not be charged the mandatory airport taxes, fees and surcharges that you would manditorily be charged if you rented from the Hilo ITO Airport. This could save you up to 22% or at least $48/week. The Enterprise in town location is especially attractive to long term visitors. The downside is that Enterprise does not offer shuttle service between the Airport and their in-town location. But do not despair, there are several taxi services available. Currently, Enterprise is the only company offering vehicles for hire right in town. Keep in mind, this is NOT an airport location. You will need to find your own way there.

Car Rentals in Town

Hawaii is a very large island having a number of great attractions that are spread out. Tourists are suggested to rent a vehicle to move around effortlessly and with convenience. The solution is Hilo car hire. As a leading auto rental provider, we offer our visitors access to many name brand rental agencies used all over the world.

Booking your Vehicle

Although you'll find a vehicle to match your budget, it is highly suggested to make a reservation far ahead of time. During the warm season and holidays there are many more tourists visiting. Therefore, visiting the island without having a prior reservation is not recommended due to supply and demand. Book your vehicle early. Our online reservation process makes it hassle free and convenient.

Enjoying the area with a Rental Car

Whether you need a convertible, Jeep, an SUV or a minivan, we are able to handle your transportation needs. You'll find a wide variety of options that make it easy to find the perfect vehicle during your stay. Due to intense competition between service providers, you'll find that rental charges are extremely reasonable in Hawaii, especially through Hawaii Car Rentals.

Traveling East to West

If you're traveling to Kona on Saddle Road, be sure to visit the Mauna Kea Volcano Visitor's Center. But be advised that none of the vehicle rental companies allow their vehicles to be driven beyond the Visitor's Center on up to the Mauna Kea Volcano Observatory, even if they are 4WD. The road is not paved, weather changes frequently, visibility can be very poor, and the road can be hazardous to navigate.
