Renting a car in Hawaii – Tips and advices

- You need to be above 21 or even above 25 to rent a car in the US. In order to rent the car, companies will ask you for your passport as well as for your visa, so keep them in hand. In Hawaii particularly, there is an underage fee for drivers under 25. If you are under 21, you won’t be able to rent a car.

- To drive in the US, you need to have a full and valid driver’s licence from your home country. Also, International Driving Permit (IDP) is needed.

- The proof of insurance is needed to drive a car too. Keep it with you while driving.

- You need to be equipped with warning triangles in case of accident. American law says it is compulsory to bring them in your car.

- Many of the car rental partners do accept credit cards instead of cash.
