In this blog post, you’ll find a list of things to pack, so that you will feel ready for your big trip. Remember, if you forget anything, there is always the local market and shops to help you out, so don’t worry.

First, Check the Weather

Big Island Auto Rentals isn’t like other rental car agencies because we want to treat you like family. Well, the first thing to do is check what the weather will be like where you are going on the island.

If you are going to Kona Side then it will be a lot sunnier, warmer, and drier. However, if you are going to Hilo Town, then it is likely to be rainier, cooler, and more humid.

After you’ve checked the weather, it will be easier to decide what to leave home and what to pack.

Second, Pack Essential Items for Hawaii

So, your local rental car agency, Big Island Auto Rentals, recommends starting with these essential items to pack. Some of the packing will depend on how long you are planning to stay on the island as well as what you prefer.

There are laundromats in practically every town, so a week’s worth of clothes will get you by if you’re staying long. By the way, Big Island Auto Rentals is a rental car agency with long-term car rentals available. In regards to personal preference, some people get colder easier while others get hotter faster; packing has a lot to do with personal preference. In total, remember to keep your trip length as well as yourself in mind when considering the quantity and types of items you’re packing.

Further, we recommend packing a day’s worth of clothing in your airplane’s carry-on pack, if you’re bringing a checked bag. Accidents happen; sometimes the airlines will lose your checked luggage! It could take five days to get all of your stuff returned to you while the airline searches for your checked bag.

To be prepared, make sure you have your Essential Travel Documents & Financial Goods, Technology, and Other Essentials in your carry-on as well as a day’s work of Toiletries and Clothing. The clothing can be rewashed and switched with the outfit that you wear on the plane for backup when accidents happen. Check the list below for these carry-on essentials.
