What you need to know before you go
How do I get the best deals on a Hilo Thrifty car rental?
We try to get you the lowest price, no matter when you reserve your car. But getting your car well ahead of your visit can help you save even more. Be sure to keep the car under one driver's name and read the mileage policy to avoid any unexpected fees.
What do I need to bring when I get my car rental in Hilo?
You'll need to carry with you your driver's permit and a credit card in your name.
What is the minimum age to rent a car in Hilo?
Thrifty's minimum age to rent a car in Hilo is 21. Make sure to review Thrifty's policies, as there could be limitations if you are under 25 in most cases or for higher category rentals especially.
Is there a particular vehicle I should get for my trip to Hilo?
That depends on how many people you are traveling with and what you'll be doing when you visit Hilo. Economy or compact cars are easier to park and great for short commutes. If you are traveling with family or friends, then a sedan or SUV will have more room for everyone's suitcases and provide a more comfortable ride on longer drives. Those looking for a little luxury on their Hilo trip can choose the premium category to get a car like an Audi A4 or Cadillac XTS or similar.
Is insurance required when you rent a car in the United States?
In the United States you do need to have insurance before you rent a car. Many of the major credit card issuers (MasterCard, Visa, American Express and Discover) typically offer coverage. However, many of them have limitations, such as not covering large vehicles, like premium models or some SUVs. Be sure to find out by calling your credit card company to find out what kind of coverage is offered before you head to Hilo. Otherwise, as a U.S. citizen, you can purchase Collision Damage Coverage through CarRentals.com at checkout.
Do I need to pay a deposit when I book my Thrifty car rental?
Thrifty does require a deposit when you book your rental. Thrifty will block the deposit on your credit once you book your car for your trip. Please note that the deposit may vary greatly depending on the make and model of the rental.
Do I have to return my Thrifty rental with a full tank?
At CarRentals.com, we encourage a full tank policy. You pick up your Thrifty rental topped off. However, if you return the rental with less than the amount that you received it with, most companies will charge a premium to top it back off. For a cheaper rate, it is best to find a filling station before you bring the car back to Thrifty. Stations near or around airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
Should I get unlimited miles when I drive in Hilo?
Hilo's small-town atmosphere certainly has its charms, but you may want to take to the road again after you've checked off all the activities in Hilo.
Does Hilo Thrifty offer one-way car rentals?
Thrifty usually offers one-way rentals. You may find it more convenient to return your rental car at another location. However, there is typically an additional fee when you choose one-way.
