When renting a car during your visit to this tropical paradise, it is useful to consider the terrain you’ll be exploring in Hawaii as well as the typical weather conditions for your vacation period. Family beach vacations, short weekend trips, and outdoor adventures in Hawaii will differ in terms of vehicle suitability. Read on to find out the ideal vehicle type for different vacations and needs.
Best Car For a Family
Hawaii is in many ways the ideal family holiday. Beaches, flora, fauna and incredible landscapes will enthrall adults and children alike and this is coupled with the island’s year-round beach weather. SIXT rent a car’s mid-size and full-size SUVs are a great option in Hawaii. They can carry up to 7 passengers and have extra storage space for all your luggage and extra equipment. SUVs are also the best car for Hawaii’s diverse terrain; on the way to the beach, you can often find yourself reaching the parking lot via a dusty back road that an SUV will handle superbly.
Best Car For Summer Weather
Though Hawaii does have a rainy season from November through March, it is relatively dry all year round and much of the rain hits the mountainous areas. A convertible is a fabulous choice for the Hawaiian winter and summer. Take the top down and you can feel that unique Pacific Ocean breeze in your hair. You will also benefit from these sporty and stylish vehicles that are built for enjoyment and driveability. All SIXT vehicles are fitted with air conditioning so whatever vehicle type you choose, this feature can help to combat the hotter, more humid days.
Best Car For Traveling Around
Though there are many freeways on busier islands like Oahu, much of the islands are accessible by smaller highways with a lower speed limit. Roads wind around the coastline and change in altitude frequently. A sedan would be a great choice but you may want to choose our more robust SUV range with an even more powerful engine and space for luggage. Additionally, parking is rarely a problem and it is likely you will spend the majority of your time admiring Hawaii’s staggering natural scenery.
