Hawaii Car Rental Contract
|DDD||Vacations are for adventures, but when it comes to your Hawaii car rental, you should think twice before taking the road less traveled. Taking your rental car off-road can not only void your Hawaii rental contract, but it can also put you in a precarious situation. AA Aloha Cars-R-Us in Kihei, HI, is one of Hawaii’s leading rent-a-car agencies. Serving customers throughout the Kona, Hilo, Maui, Kauai, Oahu, and Molokai since 1986, their Hawaii team has seen what can happen when a car ends up where it shouldn’t. We are talking huge tow bills, plus, that agency may not allow future rentals with them.
| Here are some reasons why you should avoid voiding your car rental agreement by taking your vehicle off-road:
|It Can Leave You Stranded: Most car rental policies prohibit taking your vehicle off paved roads. This is due to the damage that can be accrued by driving over rugged terrain—especially in Hawaii. Sharp, uneven lava rocks and other tough natural landscapes can flatten your tires, damage your suspension, and leave your car’s undercarriage components open to getting scraped or crushed. If your vehicle sustains damage in a remote area, you could be stranded without easy access to help.
You May Have to Pay Steep Bills: Even if your vehicle is damaged and you can call for help, the cost of having your vehicle air-lifted by helicopter or towed can be astronomical. Not to mention, you can be faced with rental car fees for voiding your signed Hawaii rental car agreement. To add insult to injury, the cost to repair your vehicle won’t likely be covered by your rental policy or insurance.
The Repercussions Can Spoil Your Vacation: While seeing the natural landscapes of Hawaii up close is breathtaking, the repercussions of doing so by taking your car off-road should make you think twice. Having to pay out of pocket for vehicle damage, fees, and related service can be enough to ruin your entire vacation. That’s not to mention how the time and effort it takes to deal with any hassles along the way can rob you of valuable vacation time.
