How old do you need to be to rent a car in Hawaii?

My husband and I are taking a trip to Hawaii for our honeymoon. We plan on renting a car and exploring Maui, but we weren’t sure if we could rent a car because we’re only 24 years old. In Hawaii, how old do you need to be to rent a car?

Congrats on the wedding and ensuing honeymoon! You only need to be 18 years old to rent a car in
, so exploring Maui should be a breeze.
However, you may find that a rental car company will add a young driver surcharge to your bill because you’re under 25. The company may also restrict what types of vehicles it’s willing to rent to you. Typically, this means you can’t rent either a luxury car or a convertible due to a higher risk of an accident. Always call ahead to the rental company to see what their policies are.
Your car insurance should cover your rental car, so there’s usually no need to purchase
rental car insurance
unless you want to add additional coverage.
