What you need to know for the road
How do I find the best rates on a Kailua Kona Budget rental car?
CarRentals.com always tries to get you the lowest price, no matter when you book. However, booking your car ahead of time can help keep spending low. Make sure to keep the car under one driver's name and read the mileage policy to avoid any unexpected fees.
Do I need to bring anything special when I pick up my rental car in Kailua Kona?
Be sure to bring your driver's license and a credit card in your name.
What is the minimum age to rent a car in Kailua Kona?
Budget's minimum age to rent a car in Kailua Kona is 21. Make sure to review Budget's policy, as there may be limitations if you are under 25 or for higher category cars in particular.
Is there a particular vehicle I should get for my trip to Kailua Kona?
That all depends on your needs and what you'll be doing when you visit Kailua Kona. Economy or compact vehicles are good for short commutes and are easier to park. 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 dash of luxury on their Kailua Kona vacation can choose the premium category for a car like a Cadillac or Audi or similar.
Does the United States require car insurance?
In the United States you do need to have insurance before you rent. Many major credit cards (MasterCard, Visa, American Express and Discover) typically provide some coverage. However, many of them have prohibitions, such as not covering bigger vehicles, like premium models or some SUVs. Be sure to call your credit card company and find out what kind of coverage is offered before you head to Kailua Kona. Otherwise, as a United States citizen, you can add on Collision Damage Coverage with CarRentals.com at checkout.
Does Budget require a deposit at the time of booking my rental car?
Budget does require a deposit when you book your rental car. Budget will block the deposit on your credit once you reserve your car for your trip. Please note that the deposit may vary greatly depending on the make and model of the rental.
What is the fuel policy on my Budget car rental?
At CarRentals.com, we recommend a full to full policy. You pick up your Budget rental with the needle at "F". However, if you return the rental with less than the amount it was given to you, most companies will charge a premium to top it back off. If you want to keep your expenses lower, it is best to find a filling station before you bring it back to Budget. Stations close to airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
Do I need unlimited miles when I rent a car in Kailua Kona?
Kailua Kona certainly has its charms, but you may want to take to the road after you've checked off all the activities here.
Does Budget offer one-way rentals in Kailua Kona?
Budget offers one-way rentals in most cases. You may find it easier to drop off your rental car at another Budget. Don't forget there is typically an additional charge when you pick one-way.
