Big Island Auto Rentals is the most affordable local car rental in Hawaii. Take your vehicle to these top three destinations in Hawaii.
Hawaii Volcanoes National Park
Visit the Hawaii Volcanoes National Park with your local car rental. We recommend taking the driving tour via Crater Rim Drive and Chain of Craters Road. Don’t worry, the roads are paved and you will not need a 4×4 to visit such an awesome location.
First, begin by visiting the Kilauea Visitor Center just past the national park entrance. The visitor center is open from 9 AM to 5 PM. It will contain all the maps and information you need for your scenic drive and hikes.
Moreover, the national park is actually open 24 hours all year long. This means that you can take a nice scenic tour to Crater Rim Drive anytime.
And don’t forget to bring your camera on your journey to take pictures of the amazing scenery. You will get to see the power of the volcanoes throughout the landscapes as you drive along this special touring spot.

Visit Downtown Hilo
Next, our rental car office is located in Downtown Hilo. The office is open by appointment only, so schedule your reservation online today! Before you book your vehicle for your trip, you will see that we have a newer fleet. Indeed, we have clean cars.
If you’re picking up your local car rental at our office, you can take a drive around Downtown Hilo to explore. Visit the farmers market, local shops, like the ukulele shop — don’t forget to play — and taste special dishes made from the island’s ingredients at tasty restaurants.
There are many gift shops to browse for souvenirs too. Not to mention, Hilo has museums and art exhibitions that you can visit as well. Downtown Hilo will be the place that you will want to come and hang out after a long days exploration around the island.
Check out the waterfalls
Finally, be sure to check out the amazing waterfalls around the Big Island of Hawaii. There are many beautiful locations to choose from. Enjoy nice walks with the relaxing sounds of falling water. And experience the topical forests with fresh Aloha air.
At Big Island Auto Rentals, we want you to be comfortable. Since we have a newer fleet of cars, you can feel safe while you take our local car rentals for long scenic drives to visit the waterfalls in Hawaii.
Remember to pack a lot of water and a light rain jacket to stay hydrated and warm. The island has rain showers without warning throughout most of the island.
For more information on the waterfalls, check out the blog post “Explore Three Waterfalls In Hilo With The Best Car Rental Company.” You will find directions and trail guides on how to get to the top three waterfalls in the area around Hilo.
Importantly, we want you to be safe. Avoid swimming in waterfalls unless you are entirely sure that it is safe. The might of the falling waters are extremely dangerous.
In the end, we want you to know that at Big Island Auto Rentals we will treat you like a local. You will receive the same car rental price as those that live on the island. Drive in style with our well-maintained cars. We have a newer fleet, so our vehicles are super clean. And if you rent for longer time periods — such as a month — you will receive a more affordable rate. Mahalo.
We have cars for rent at affordable prices so you can explore more. Visit the most popular connoisseur places in Kona with Big Island Auto Rentals.

Kona Farmers Market
Days: Closed Mondays & Tuesdays
Hours: Open 7 AM – 4 PM

This big farmers market has lots of tropical fruit and produce per usual. But you’ll also find local arts and crafts as well. It is the perfect place to prepare for your full-day island adventure with our car rental. Stock up on a variety of bananas and get hydrated with awesome fruit juices for your beach day.
Or stop by for a simple and quick meal. Grab a fresh coconut to drink. And definitely take a nice little walk. You’ll be supporting the locals and meeting the community members from around the area, which is always a plus.
Kona Coffee Tours & Tastings
Take Big Island Auto Rentals on the country roads of Kona, there are hundreds of coffee farms. Kailua-Kona is the hot spot with some of the world’s greatest coffee. You’ll find Kona coffee beans around the world.
Of course, you’ll be able to get Kona coffee at farmers markets, cafes, and restaurants — but coffee tours right on the farms are something worth checking out.
Visit in the spring, around February and March, and get a chance to see the white coffee fruit blossoms. They are delicate white flowers that make the fields look like snow.
You can check out the tours any time of year though. However, if you go before noon, you’ll get the sunshine. As it’s more likely to rain after lunch. So, if you like to spend time in the sun, definitely go in the earlier mornings.
When you love coffee, it’s totally recommended to visit at least a couple of farms. Many of the tours are free. They also offer samples at the end.
The average amount of time spent walking around a farm is 30 minutes. Afterward, you’ll most likely be able to try their special coffee roasted styles. You can also buy right from the local coffee farmers.
Check out the map below of some of Kona Side’s coffee tours and tasting destinations. Be sure to call and browse their website beforehand to understand their touring details.
Kona Brewery & Pub
The first Kona Brewery in Kailua-Kona is still serving original brews in their taproom. It’s located right next to the main brewery. Join good company over good food and a fresh Kona beer.
Kona Brewing Co. offers a variety of iconic beers. The Big Wave Golden Ale. The Hanalei Island IPA. The Longboard Island Lager. The Wailua Wheat Ale. And don’t forget about the specialty beers on tap. Dining in and partaking in their ‘Liquid Aloha’ will make you feel like Ohana.
Take our vehicle from Big Island Auto Rentals to Kona Brewing Co. then relax on their outdoor lanai. Breathe in the spirit of Aloha with a cooling beverage made from locally sourced ingredients. But please, always remember to drink and enjoy responsibly.
