Hertz in Hawaii

Hawaii is one of the most popular holiday destinations in the world, with miles of beautiful coast, gorgeous scenery and lots of Aloha spirit. A car rental from Hertz can really help you make the most of your holiday in Hawaii, giving you freedom to move between towns, cities, beaches and tourist attractions at your own pace and without relying on any public transport or taxis. And if you’re in Hawaii for the surfing, it’s a great way to get your surfboard to those great breaks on the North Shore!

There more than 30 Hertz branches across the Hawaiian Islands, particularly at airports and in key towns and cities. So, whether you need a hire car to get you from the airport to your resort, or whether you want to set off on a Hawaiian road trip, Hertz makes it really convenient and easy for you.

Rules and regulations for driving in Hawaii

Hawaii has some particular rules of the road enforced in order to keep all road users safe. You should be sure to stick to these rules and laws when driving in order to avoid fines or even a criminal charge.

• Hawaiians drive on the right side of the road, as is the case across the USA.
• It is permitted to turn right on a red light after coming to a complete stop, unless there are signs telling you otherwise. Be sure to use your indicators when turning to alert other drivers.
• There are several one-way streets in Honolulu and Waikiki so be sure that you are going the right way.
• It is compulsory for the driver and all passengers to wear seat belts and there is a $92 fine if you are caught not doing so.
• The use of electronic devices — including mobile phones — is completely prohibited while driving in all Hawaiian counties.
• Drink driving laws are enforced in Hawaii and you should not drive under the influence of drugs or alcohol. This could result in a fine or prosecution.
• Although not strictly a law, it is considered very rude to use your car’s horn in Hawaii except in cases of emergency. If you use your horn, it may antagonise other drivers or cause alarm.

Driving in and around Hawaii

Special attractions

Hawaii is all about fun, fun, fun so you want to steer away from supercars and speedways and get go karting. K1 Speed is an easy drive out of Honolulu and offers some great indoor go karting, so you can race your family and friends while staying out of the sun. As well as racing, you can also view their motoring memorabilia and stop off at their snack bar.

However, you don’t want to spend all your time indoors, and Hawaii has some amazingly scenic driving routes for you to try out. The most famous is the Hana Highway along the northeast coast of Maui and takes a couple of hours without stops. That said, the sights are so beautiful (and the tropical fruit stands so tempting) you’ll want to stop off quite frequently, giving you a full day out.

If it’s photo-worthy scenery you’re after though, try Route 560 on the northern coast of Kauai. The route takes in mountains, fields and sparkling beaches — giving you the best of Hawaii in one road.

Quick information

• Minimum car rental age: The minimum age for renting a car in Hawaii is 25. However, upon payment of an age differential charge, this can be reduced to 21. Depending on the vehicle group, this charge is either $27 or $30.

• Average speed limits: The maximum speed limit in Hawaii is 55mph on most highways but this is often lower, so be aware of local signs detailing speed limits changing. In built up areas, this is lower again.

• Toll roads and costs: There are currently no toll roads in Hawaii.

• Required documents: To rent a car in Hawaii, you will need identification (usually your passport) as well as a valid driver’s licence from your country of residence. If your driver’s licence is not in English, you will also need to provide an International Driver’s Permit (IDP).

• Refuelling at petrol stations: There are plenty of petrol stations across Hawaii, although bear in mind that some areas of some of the islands are quite remote. If you are heading to these areas, it’s advisable to fill up your tank before setting off. Many petrol stations offer 24-hour service.

• Travelling with children: State law in Hawaii makes it mandatory for children under four years to sit in an approved child safety seat. Youngsters aged between four and seven should have a booster seat or appropriate car seat when travelling in a car, unless they are taller than 4’9”. Check with your Hertz branch if they offer child safety seats at an additional charge.
