Top tips for renting a car in Lihue

  • Kauai has limited public transportation so if you are visiting, a rental car is really important. First, you’ll need a car to get around to restaurants, shops, and grocery stores. Additionally, numerous beaches and some of the more popular attractions like Waimea Canyon, Grove Farm, and Kauai Museum are a good distance from most hotels and resorts.
  • Visiting Hawaii is a dream vacation for many. Kauai’s capital city, Lihue, is home to the largest and the most popular airport in the state. If flying into the Daniel K. Inouye International Airport, you’ll enjoy many conveniences, including six on-site rental car companies. The rental car offices are located outside of baggage claim. Access to other rental car agencies is also possible via a shuttle.
  • In Kauai there are lots of bicyclists and pedestrians. While driving, you’ll need to keep an eye out for them. Additionally, note that there are some one-lane bridges on the island. Read up on one lane bridge etiquette before driving on one to be prepared.
  • If you live in a big city, you’ll feel as though there is little to no rush hour in Lihue.
