Car Rental choices

by mavrtt

The prices for car rental were the same between Dollar and Thrifty.

Any reason to pick one over the other?

I assume you'll be flying in to the islands. You might wish to check if one of these car rental companies "partners" with your airline. That might allow you to rent a car at a lower rate, get an upgrade in model, or possibly help you earn extra airline miles. Gary

Thanks for the tip re checking what the airlines would offer. Hawaiian Air offered the same lowest prices I got when I individually checked each car rental agency. However, for Thrifty and Dollar, they both had a Hilo city discount of about $20 lower than the special rates. The Hilo city discount was not offered with the airlines rates.

I opted for Thrifty but Dollar was the same price. All other rentals were higher, one even over $500 versus the $274 (with taxes, etc) for 8 days that I got with Thrifty. I save $26 with the Hilo discount, enough to buy a souvenir at Hilo Hatties! By the way, Thrifty offered a printable coupon for Hilo Hatties too.

Thanks for the advice. I'm glad I checked it out.

I'm glad that checking helped. I don't rent a car often, but I'll still check multiple sources for the best price. If it's awhile before you fly, I'd check the rates again just before you leave. Gary

Travel Tips for Hilo

by mamamarlin

Dominating the area are the volcanos and Volcano National Park is a must see for anyone visiting this area. It is constantly changing and there are so many fascinating aspects about it - seeing an active lava flow (after dark) is pretty special as is a walk inside the volcano crater. Thurston lava tube is another beautiful site with lush ferns surrounding it and dripping water inside this tube that was formed by an old lava flow. Mostly when I am away from Hilo I miss the friendly people - they really care about you. Smiles from the locals - smile at them and they always smile back. I miss the peace and quiet of my home in the country above Hilo town and I miss the many areas where Surf and Land come together to form breathtaking vistas.

Arnott's Lodge off the map right 1/4 mile on Hwy 19

UncleBilly's Hotel is where the 'e' is in foot bridge

Shipman House is off the map left center See all the green bayfront land that hasn't been rebuilt upon since the sunami's of 1946 and 1960

Flower necklace

by kyoub

Leis are a very popular custom in the islands. They are given upon arrival and for many other occasions such as birthdays, graduation, showers, and weddings. Any one can wear a Lei.
One night after we had finished dinner, a lady came in the restaurant selling leis.
That was where I got my first flower necklace.
Another time there was one waiting for me upon our arrival at a rental house.
They do make you feel very special.

by KiNyA

Banyan Drive in Hilo has been referred to as ''Hilo's Living Wall of Fame'' in deference to the corridor of huge old Banyan trees planted by celebrities in the early 1930s. See names like Babe Ruth, Cecil B. DeMille, etc., who planted the massive 46 banyan trees. The best time to photograph them is in early morning.

Akaka & Kahuna Falls

by leafmcgowan

* Akaka Falls Rd * Off Hwy 19, Honomu, HI 96728 *
My first day on the Big Island, my friend Kawika took me to these amazing sheer pits of 'awe' known as 'Akaka Falls. A 442 foot tall waterfall descending down into a deep gorge as part of the Kolekole Stream. Located within 'Akaka Falls State Park just 11 miles north of Hilo at the end of Highway 220. Because the waterfall plunges down into a very rocky and scenic gorge, the local Hawaiians named it 'Akaka which means "A rent, split, chink, separation; to crack, split, scale". The folklore surrounding these falls involve Pôhaku a Pele that, when struck by a branch of lehua ʻâpane, will call the sky to darken and rain to fall (Pukui, Elbert, & Mookini, 1974). You can also see Kahûnâ Falls along this trail. The trail is a self-guided .4 mile hike through dense tropical vegatation leading to these two natural wonders of Hawaii. Lots of Hawaii's botanica dot and dress up the trail as tropical flowers, vines, and trees. Kahuna Falls is the lesser of the two, plummeting 400 feet. The Park itself has a nice parking lot, rest rooms, and often will find locals selling arts and crafts. On my visit on August 6, 2009; there was an amazing artist painting local scenery. Rating: 5 stars out of 5. Must visit location on the Big Island.
