Location Information

Travel to anywhere on the Big Island and rent a car from the Budget location at Ellison Onizuka Kona International Airport. With a cheap Kona Airport car rental from Budget, you can quickly get into your convertible or Jeep or one of our economy rental cars and enjoy this beautiful island paradise.  

Where is Budget Car Rental at KOA?

To get to the Budget rental car lot, first exit the baggage claim area. From there, cross the street to the car rental pick-up area on the center median. A Budget shuttle bus will momentarily pick you up and take you to the Budget rental car desk and lot. Once there, you can pick up your rental car reservation and head for your Hawaiian destinations.

Kona Airport Rental Car Return

You will return your rental car to the same lot you picked it up from, located at 73-361 Kupipi Street in Kailua Kona. As you come toward the airport, the Budget lot will be on your right, marked by Car Rental Return signs. After returning your car, the shuttle will take you back to the airport.

How old do you have to be to rent a car in Kona, HI?

You must be at least 21 to rent a car from Budget in Kona. However, if you are between 21 and 24, you must also pay a daily underage surcharge of $27 and certain vehicle restrictions apply. The surcharge and restrictions do not apply to drivers age 25 or older.

What is the best type of car to rent in Kona?

A Jeep Wrangler rental is the most popular choice for visitors coming to the island of Hawaii. Because Kona is on the biggest of all the Hawaiian islands, there are endless outdoor routes to take your jeep--like the Kekaha Kai State Park that is just 2.6 miles from Kona Intl Airport.

Ofcourse, the best car for you depends on what kind of trip you are taking. If you just want a quiet beach vacation, any sedan model can get you to the beach. If you’re looking for island adventure, try an SUV or a Jeep. Or, if you have a large group or family, take them all over the island in a van.

Van Rental

With a passenger van rental, you can take 12 or 15 people to see some of Hawaii’s famous active volcanoes, like Mauna Loa or Kilauea? Or, with a minivan rental like a Toyota Sienna, you get to some of Hawaii’s family-friendly destinations, such as Kealakekua Bay.

SUV Rental

With all of the seats and cargo space you need, an SUV can get you to any of the Big Island’s best hikes, like the Kilauea’iki Trail in Hawaii Volcanoes National Park. Premium SUV rentals offer space and comfort.

Long-Term Car Rental

We offer long-term car rentals for when your trip calls for a longer stay. You get a better rate the longer you use a monthly car rental, and you can even swap out your vehicle before your rental is over.

Luxury Car Rental

Get a convertible car rental if you want to enjoy the tropical island weather while you tour around the Big Island. In addition to convertible models like the Ford Mustang, we offer numerous luxury cars for you to enjoy. You’ll never forget experiencing Queen Kaahumanu Highway with the top down!

Jeep Rental

If you consider yourself more daring than most, maybe a Jeep is the right rental car for you. In this rugged vehicle, you can venture out to explore any exciting Hawaii destination, like Kohala Waterfalls. Just don’t go too crazy. It’s still a rental and you’re responsible for any damage.
