What you need to know before you go
How do I get a Kauai National car rental at a great rate?
CarRentals.com always tries to get you the lowest price, whether you reserve your vehicle. But getting well ahead of your visit can help keep spending low. Make sure to keep the car under one driver's name and go over the mileage policy to avoid any surprise fees.
Do I need to bring anything special when I get my car in Kauai?
Make sure to bring your driver's permit and a credit card in your name.
What's Kauai's minimum age to rent a car?
Most suppliers in Kauai require that you at least be 21 years old to rent a car. Make sure to review National's policy, as there may be added fees if you are under 25 in most cases or for higher category cars especially.
What kind of National rental car should I get for my trip to Kauai?
That all depends on your needs and what activities you want to do in Kauai. Economy or compact vehicles are easier to park and great for short drives. If you are traveling with family or friends, then a mid-size car or SUV is going to have more room for luggage and offer a more comfortable ride on longer commutes. Those looking for a little luxury on their Kauai getaway can choose the premium category to get a car like a Mercedes C-Class or Cadillac XTS or similar.
Is insurance required when you rent a car in the United States?
You are required to have insurance before you rent a car in the United States. Although many of the major card issuers, like Visa or American Express, give 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 issuer's policy before you decide. Otherwise, as a U.S. citizen, you can also book 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 book your rental car. National will block the deposit on your credit once you book your car for your trip. Please be aware that the deposit can vary greatly based on the model and make of the car.
What is the fuel policy on my National car rental?
At CarRentals.com, we encourage a full to full policy. You should get into your car with a full tank, and you will want to refuel up to the amount you picked the car up with. If you want to keep your expenses lower, it is best to find a gas station before you bring it back to National. Stations close to airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
Do I need unlimited miles when I rent a car in Kauai?
Kauai certainly has its charms, but you may want to take to the road again after you've checked off all the activities here.
Does Kauai National offer one-way car rentals?
National typically offers one-way rentals. You may find it easier to drop off your rental car at a different location. Be aware there may be an additional fee when you opt for one-way.
