What you need to know about car rentals
How do I find the best deals on an Honolulu National car rental?
We strive to get you the lowest price, no matter when you reserve your car. However, getting your car ahead of time can help keep spending low. Make sure to not add an additional driver and go over the mileage policy to avoid any surprise fees.
Do I need to bring anything special when I pick up my rental car in Honolulu?
Be sure to carry with you your driver's permit and a credit card in your name.
What's Honolulu's minimum age to rent a car?
Most suppliers in Honolulu set the minimum age to rent a car at 21. Take time to go over National's policies, as there may be added fees if you are under 25 in most cases or for higher category rentals especially.
Is there a particular car I should get for my trip to Honolulu?
That all depends on your needs and what you'll be doing when you visit Honolulu. Economy or compact cars are easier to park and ideal for short drives. If you are traveling with a bigger group, then a mid-size vehicle or SUV will have enough room for all of you and offer a more comfortable ride. Those looking for a bit of luxury on their Honolulu getaway can choose a higher-end car model 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 from National. Many of the major credit cards (Visa, MasterCard, American Express and Discover) generally provide some coverage. However, many of them have prohibitions, such as not covering larger vehicles, like premium models or some SUVs. Make sure to call your credit card company and find out what kind of coverage is offered before you head to Honolulu. Otherwise, as a U.S. citizen, you can also add on Collision Damage Coverage with CarRentals.com at checkout.
Do I need to pay a deposit when I book my National car rental?
National does require a deposit when you reserve your rental. National will block the deposit on your credit once you reserve your car for your trip to Honolulu. Please be aware that the deposit can vary greatly based on the model and make of the car.
Do I have to full up the tank before I take my car back to National?
At CarRentals.com, we recommend a full tank policy. You should receive your vehicle with full tank, and you should return it with a full tank of gas. To avoid any added expenses, it is best to find a gas station before you return the car to National.
Should I get unlimited miles when I rent a car in Honolulu?
Honolulu has lots to keep you entertained, but you may want to drive to nearby cities to find out what else Hawaii has to offer. You can explore the rest of the area free of mileage limits after you've checked off all the activities in Honolulu.
Does National offer one-way rentals in Honolulu?
National offers one-way rentals in most cases. You may find it more convenient to drop off your rental at another National. Be aware there may be an additional charge when you choose one-way.
