Optional Accessories you pay for

Child Safety Seats:(Optional)

Sample child safety seatChild safety and booster car seats are required for children seven and younger. Families are obligated by law to use these car seats in their vehicles for both safety and legal reasons. Bring your own or reserve one with your Hawaii car rental. Hawaii law requires children under the age of four to ride in a child safety seat. 

Hawaii law requires children ages four through seven to ride in a child safety seat or a booster seat when traveling in a motor vehicle. The driver will be held responsible for compliance with the law. Violators of the law are required to attend a 4-hour class and may be assessed a fine of $100-$500 depending upon the number of offenses.  

When children outgrow child restraints with a harness, between 40 and 65 lbs. depending on seat weight limit, they should be restrained in a booster seat until they are big enough to fit in an adult seat belt (approximately 80 lbs. and 4'-9' tall). More details on Child Passenger Safety.

GPS Navigation:(Optional)

Car Rental GPS NavigationIf you're renting a car in Hawaii and don't know the area then you'll definitely want to consider all GPS navigation options. There are daily and weekly GPS rates. Most locations provide GPS devices as an option. GPS is a must have option in unfamiliar territory. You'll be glad you sprung for the added expense, especially if you get lost and don't know where you're going, or need to get somewhere fast and don't want to take the time to look at a map, not to mention even trying to find a map to purchase. 

Insurance & Protections for Rental Cars(Optional)

There are many outdoor adventures to be had and making sure you have all the essentials is important. One essential piece of equipment for such oversized items such as such as surfboards and kayaks, is a roof rack. Please note that some vehicles have the roof rail part of a roof rack, but not the necessary crossbars. Important information on roof racks can be found on our "Do Hawaii Car Rentals have Roof Racks for Surfboards" page.

Sirius XM Satellite RadioOther staples to have are SiriusXM Satellite Radio and USB Ports for Media Devices.
