I reserved an ECONOMY car and was given a Dodge Charger, a high performance car. I had to spend almost $100 just on gasoline for those two days.Reviewed 2023 Dec 08

Very, VERY poor customer service experiences. When we picked up the car and when we dropped it off. Was not prepared to start my vacation off when an aggressive employee that was potentially the rudest i’ve ever been treated.Reviewed 2023 Dec 03

I stood in line for 1 1/2 hours to get the car. And when I got in the car, I found out they had rented the same car to someone else. They upgraded me but when I drove away I noticed the tank was only 3/4 full.Reviewed 2023 Sep 22

The oil at 0% was a little disturbing. When I called, the woman on the line basically told me to keep driving as according to her there were 2,000 miles before an oil change. I said I wouldn't do that and she agreed to exchange vehicles for me. Only problem was I had to go back to the airport to pick the vehicle up. They wouldn't deliver one to me. Also, on the exchanged vehicle, the key fob battery gave out so that didn't work!Reviewed 2023 Mar 14

We needed a car for four. The camaro, although way cool was not a good fit for us. I wish we weren’t so tired after getting there to go back in and get something more appropriate for us.Reviewed 2021 Jul 06

Cons:Dollar rental charged me for gas despite me having returned the tank full. Their customer service line has a menu option for this exact problem which means they are doing this all the time.Reviewed 2021 May 30

Pros:The car was good and they held my reservationCons:I don't know whose fault this is, Dollar's or Kayak's, but I chose to pick up the car at an off airport site because the price was right and the pick up spot was close to my lodging. However, when I made the reservation to pick up the car at 4 pm on Friday, there was no notice and I was not informed that the pick up counter closed at 4 pm on Friday and did not open again until 8 am Monday. Therefore, when I showed up to pick up the car the counter was closed and we didn't have a car for the whole weekend. Luckily, it didn't impact our trip too much and Dollar didn't cancel my reservation for not showing up on Friday. It would've been nice to get some kind of warning about the hours of the reservation desk at King Kamehameha Hotel so that I didn't have to spend Saturday morning on the phone with Dollar trying to make sure that they wouldn't give my reservation away.Reviewed 2021 May 16

Top tips for renting a car from Dollar in Kailua-Kona

  • Situated on the western coast of Hawaii Island, which is better known as Big Island, Kailua-Kona is only about 20 square miles in terms of size. But it’s filled with so many beautiful beaches, including some that are off the beaten path, that you’ll want to explore when you’re visiting the town. What better way to do this than by looking into renting a convertible when you book Dollar car rentals in Kailua-Kona? Although Dollar won’t be able to guarantee that a specific make and model will be available, you can request the type of rental car you would like when you’re in Kailua-Kona so that you can make the most of driving around.
  • Even though Kailua-Kona might not be that large, it’ll be easy to get lost in the area if you aren’t familiar with it.
