KAYAK’s top tips for hiring a car in Princeville

  • When exploring the beauty and maximizing your experience in Princeville, Princeville car rentals are an absolute game-changer. Car rentals in Princeville allow you to explore the stunning surroundings at your own pace. With a car, you can easily reach remote beaches, hidden trails, and breathtaking viewpoints that may not be accessible by public transportation. Car rentals in Princeville allow you to visit nearby attractions such as Hanalei Bay, Queen's Bath, and the Na Pali Coast, which are best enjoyed with the convenience of private transportation. So, if you're seeking adventure and want to make the most of your time in Princeville, renting a car is the way to go!
  •  When visiting Princeville, you will likely land at Lihue Airport (LIH). Suppose you want to use Princeville car rentals. In that case, you won't need to worry about shuttles or leaving the airport premises to access the rental car offices since they are conveniently located at the airport. To access car rentals in Princeville from the airport, go from the baggage claim area to the Rent-A-Car booths across the street from the terminal. All rental companies' pick-up and drop-off areas are located behind their respective booths. Follow the signs or ask airport staff for directions, and you'll quickly locate the rental car counters. This will allow for a seamless transition from your flight to picking up your rental car, saving you time as you embark on your Princeville adventure.
  •  When driving car rentals in Princeville, specifically along the Kuhio Highway (Route 56) and within areas like Princeville Resort and Princeville Ranch, it's essential to be aware of the prevalence of wildlife on the roads. Due to the town's location in a natural setting, encounters with animals like deer, raccoons, or even wild boars are not uncommon. Exercise caution, especially when these creatures are most active during dawn and dusk. Keep an eye out for road signs indicating wildlife crossing areas and adhere to the speed limits to mitigate the risk of collisions.
  • Driving car rentals in Princeville can be challenging, particularly during the morning rush hour from 7 am to 8 am and the evening rush hour from 3 pm to 5 pm, as heavy traffic is expected. Main Street is mainly affected by these congested periods. It's also essential to be aware of Highway 51, as it often experiences congestion.
  • Book your car hire in Princeville at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price

Keep was great! Grouchy staff during pickup and especially drop off. The Jeep had mud on it when we picked up which we didn’t care that much but of course we put more mud on the week we had it and the manager lectured us saying he wanted to charge us $250 cleaning fee. We settled on $35 which I suppose was fair. Website says don’t worry about cleaning but you actually better bring it back clean. Heads up.

Pros:

The second manager and staff at Lihue airport who eventually did help us and did all they could do to make it right for us.

Cons:

I received a call that rental location was not open when we would arrive. The offer was to have the car (plus 2 others I rented at the same time) at a different location nearer where we were staying available the next morning. I paid $120 in cab fees to get to our location, but the next morning went to the closer location and found it closed. No one at any number we could find for Enterprise knew anything about our situation other than to suggest that we go BACK to the airport location. (I then had a voice mail from the nearer location about picking up the vehicles but no one answered when I called back. I never heard from him or the manager who gave me his private cell number to call if there was a problem. I called. No response. Ever.) We returned to the airport location (Another $60 cab fare. Once there, I will say the manager on duty was very apologetic and accommodating and even reimbursed us the cab fare. He treated us very well and he is to be commended. But the disorganization cost us a half day of our Hawaiian vacation, time with my family I can't recover.

Pros:

They were friendly while they apologize for giving your car away and only having to "upselled" you.

Cons:

They will give your car "away" if you are running late and then only have higher end vehicles that they upsell you on. Happened to several people, seems like a pattern-even though you have a non-refundable deposit -they will give your car away if an hour later than time you designate. Class action anyone?

The rental location is really convenient if you are staying at Kauai Beach Resort, because that is where the rental office is located. We found this rental location on Kayak and thought it was located at the airport in Lihue. Luckily for us, we were staying at the KBR. We did have to take a $20 dollar cab each way. So the deals that were close in price (less than the $40 difference in Airport location vs off-site), are the ones we would have chosen.

Car was picked up at a resort located 3 miles from airport--Hertz office, but no transportation was provided. We had to pay to get there. $44 each way (3-miles from LIH) or pay $150 drop-off fee. This was not disclosed at time of online reservation. Car was not clean and seemed old. Did not have opportunity to discuss with rental rep. as they were busy with another customer. Additional fees/taxes were added, even though this was a PRE-PAID rental that INCLUDED TAXES.
