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 where you can take your Jeep—like the Kekaha Kai State Park that is just 2.6 miles from Ellison Onizuka Kona International Airport. 

Of course, 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 an 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. With a minivan rental head to some of Hawaii’s family-friendly destinations, such as Kealakekua Bay.
