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 family or friends, then a sedan or SUV will have enough room for all of you and offer a more comfortable ride.

Does the United States require car insurance?
In the United States you do need to have insurance before you rent a car. Many of the major credit cards (MasterCard, Visa, American Express and Discover) generally cover your car rental. But many of them have limitations, such as not covering larger vehicles, like trucks or SUVs.
