If you are planning a month or so vacation on the Big Island of Hawaii and need to rent a car for a long time – we don’t have a “rent a wreck” company here but you can get decent used, long-term car rentals in Hilo, with cheaper rates the longer you rent for at Hawaii-Cars.com. Rates will probably be lower than if you went with one of the major rental companies like Dollar or Budget.
So, if you are staying in Hilo or Puna (plenty of long-term vacation rentals here in subdivisions like Paradise Park and Hawaiian Beaches) or anywhere along the Hamakua Coast like Honokaa or Pauuilo check them out. Kailua-Kona is kind of far for these guys but I don’t think Kona has something comparable yet. Waimea is an hours drive and Volcano is a 45 minute drive from here. Kau (punaluu, pahala, naalehu) is an hour and a half.
