We strive to get you the best price, whether you reserve your vehicle. However, booking your car well ahead of your trip can help keep spending low. Be sure to check the mileage policy and don't add an extra driver to avoid any surprise fees.

That depends on how many people you are traveling with and what you'll be doing when you visit Hilo. Compact or economy automobiles are easier to park and great for short commutes. If you are traveling with colleagues or family, then a SUV or a sedan will have enough room for all of you and provide a more comfortable ride on longer trips. Those looking for a bit of extravagance on their Hilo getaway can choose the premium category to get a car like an Audi A4 or Cadillac XTS or similar.
You are required to have insurance before you rent in the United States. Although many of the major card issuers, like Visa or American Express, provide some coverage, there are usually restrictions. For instance, you may not be covered if you book a larger or luxury vehicle. Make sure to check credit card company's policy before you decide. Otherwise, as a U.S. citizen, you can also add on Collision Damage Coverage through CarRentals.com at checkout.
Hertz does require a deposit when you reserve your rental car. Hertz will block the deposit on your credit once you book your rental for your trip. Please note that the deposit can vary greatly based on the model and make of the car.
We encourage a full tank policy. You should get your vehicle with a full tank. If you return your rental with less than the amount that you received it with, most companies will charge a premium to top it back off. To avoid any added expenses, it is best to find a gas station before you bring it back to Hertz.
Hilo's small-town atmosphere certainly is charming, but you may want to take to the road again after you've checked off all the activities in Hilo.
Hertz offers one-way rentals in most cases. You may find it easier to return your rental at a different location. Don't forget there is typically an additional charge when you choose one-way.
