Renting a car in Kauai

My husband and I are going to Kuaia for 10 days in March.

Any places where people have found good deals on car rentals?

Thanks!

Lots of threads on this. Start here:

If you don't need a second driver then start bidding on Priceline NYOP about a month before your trip and see if you can get a better deal. The good thing with DHCR is that you don't pay up front and you can always cancel your reservation at no cost.

In th past we always got the best rates with Costco, but that no longer seems to be the case.

My husband is going to Kauai on business in March. He got a great rate with Discount Hawaii Car Rental. He did not want to spend a lot of time shopping around so this was very easy for him.

Name Your Own Price hasn't worked for me lately. Book early on Hawaii Discount because the rates will be high for March as its Spring Break time and a popular time to visit the islands. Don't be surprised if you see high rental prices.

This is the first time in 12 years that I've booked about 10 months out (for Feb. 2012 this time) and haven't seen the prices come down at all! I guess supply is becoming less then demand. I'd book something as soon as possible---and expect to pay a LOT in taxes and fees.

Used to use Costco, etc. for many years of traveling. This last time we used Hawaiian Car Rental site and got the best deal ever.

When selecting a price quote which do you pick Brand X =Budget etc. just curious if this makes a difference?

Just submit for a quote and they'll come back with the best deal based on your dates and the kind of car you want.
