If the reason you want to visit Hawaii is to fly to a major city and then spend your entire trip on a beach in one location, you probably don't need to rent a car. That said, Hawaii offers so much more than just a few tourist destinations that you can explore. The ideal way to do that is to have a car that can take you to all these places. There is amazing scenery, restaurants that are a little bit different and off the beaten path, plus plenty of secluded beaches, parks, waterfalls, and hillsides that are much easier to explore when you have a car of your own.
If you are familiar with driving in any state in the United States, then you will not find driving in Hawaii much different. That said, there are still some unique driving tips you need to know about when you drive in Hawaii. For example, you will drive on the right side of the road and speed limits will be in miles per hour. Most roads in Hawaii are in good condition, especially in larger cities, such as Honolulu. It is important to remember that Hawaii is a rather laid-back place and people here drive that way so take care not to speed, or to do things like honking your horn. The fact of the matter is with so much beautiful scenery to see while you drive, there's no reason to speed to get anywhere.
For the most part, rental car companies will expect you to be at least twenty one years old to rent a car. One exception to this is if you want to rent a very high-end car, such as a luxury sedan or a premium SUV. To rent one of these cars, you will most likely need to be at least twenty five years old. Rental car companies generally want you to have a major credit card to rent a car to serve as security. While some may allow you to use a debit card, they will most likely restrict the type of car you can rent, plus they may expect these renters to be at least twenty five years old. There are some rental car companies that will allow a person that is eighteen years older to rent a car so long as they have a credit card, but you will probably find a very limited selection of cars available to rent.
