What you need to know before you go
How do I find the best rates on a Kauai Thrifty rental car?
We strive to get you the lowest rates, whether you book. But reserving well ahead of your visit can help you save even more. Be sure to not add an additional driver and read the mileage policy to avoid any unexpected fees.
What should I have with me when I get my rental car in Kauai?
Be sure to present your driver's permit and a credit card in your name.
What's Kauai's minimum age to rent a car?
Thrifty's minimum age to rent a car in Kauai is 21. Take time to read through Thrifty's policies, as there could be added fees if you are under 25 in most cases or for higher category vehicles especially.
Is there a particular car I should get for my trip to Kauai?
That depends on your needs and what activities you want to do in Kauai. Compact or economy cars are ideal for short drives and are easier to park. If you are traveling with coworkers, then a SUV or a sedan is going to have enough room for all of you and offer a more comfortable ride. Those looking for a dash of extravagance on their Kauai vacation can choose the premium category to get a car like an Audi A4 or Cadillac XTS or similar.
Does the United States require car insurance?
In the United States you do need to have insurance before you rent. Although many of the major card issuers, like Visa and MasterCard, give some coverage, there are usually restrictions. For instance, they may not cover your rental car if you book a larger or luxury vehicle. Make sure to check credit card issuer's policy before you decide. Otherwise, as a United States citizen, you can purchase Collision Damage Coverage with 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 reserve your rental. Thrifty will block the deposit on your credit once you book your vehicle for your trip to Kauai. Please be aware that the deposit may vary greatly based on the model and make of the rental.
What is the fuel policy on my Thrifty car rental?
We suggest a full to full policy. You pick up your Thrifty rental with a full tank, and you will want to refuel up to the amount you picked the car up with. For a cheaper rate, it is best to find a filling station before you return the car to Thrifty. Stations near airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
Should I get unlimited miles when I rent a car in Kauai?
Kauai definitely has its charms, but you may want to take to the road again after you've checked off all the activities here.
Does Kauai Thrifty offer one-way car rentals?
Thrifty typically offers one-way rentals. You may find it more convenient to drop off your rental at a different location. Don't forget there may be an additional fee when you pick one-way.
