Unlimited miles is a good option if you decide to do a little sightseeing or visit a lot of clients all over Kailua Kona. You can drive as much as you want without incurring extra charges. Go over your rental agreement to see if there are any restrictions.
Know before you go
Before you begin on your Kailua Kona trip, go over a few things prior to leaving the car rental lot. It's important to:
- Look over your vehicle and make sure there is no dents or scrapes. Be sure to make note of it on the paperwork, or you may get charged for it
- Inspect the trunk to see if the spare is inflated and the jack and lung wrench are there
- Get familiar with the controls of your car. Adjust the mirrors and seats, and note how to turn on the lights and windshield wipers
- Figure out how to work the entertainment and GPS (if available). It's best to limit any unnecessary distractions when you are navigating a new area
