Are you ready for your trip to Hana? Good! Because we've prepared a list of 7 tips for you guys to enjoy as you drive your Kahului car rentals on the highway.


Myriad tourists are looking forward to driving their Kahului car rentals around the island. But even though the area has a lot to offer, the road to Hana is still one of the most exciting adventures most people look forward to when they plan their visit.

 

Driving on the famous Hana highway can take anywhere from 2.5 hours to 3, 4 or even more. The 52 mile famous road starts on Route 36 in Kahului, goes all the way around the north coast and then merges with the Route 360 that will eventually lead you to Hana.

1. Tourists should check their Kahului car rentals before they leave

We make sure our Kahului car rentals are safe and ready to go. However, it won't hurt to check your rental one last time before you head out to live your Hana adventure.

 

Check that your lights are working properly, see that your breaks are OK and of course, make sure you have a first aid kit in your car, in case you need it.

2. Everyone should pay attention to their maps and carefully plan the trip

Unless you check your map before you leave, you'll get distracted while you drive and miss out on most of the experience! So, check the map and mile markers beforehand and if you think you need to, get an audio CD to guide you along the way.

3. Few people consider spending the night in Hana

The road to Hana is packed with wonderful sights to enjoy and waterfalls to visit. However, once you get to the city, you only get limited time to rest before heading back! If you plan on driving one of our Kahului car rentals over there, consider making an overnight trip.

4. Plan a few pit stops

Unfortunately, you may not have time to see everything along your way. So, make sure to pick a few main spots to make your pit stops and stick to the plan.

5. Don't forget to fill up the tank and get your stuff ready before you go

It's very important to fill up your Kahului car rental's tank in Paia because you won't get a chance to buy gas until you reach your destination. On the same note, make sure you have everything you need before you get on the highway as you won't get a chance to buy a swimming suit or a hiking boots once you hit the road.

6. Many people don't realize you can stop and snack along the way

While you should definitely bring along a couple snacks, don't forget that you can actually stop at local roadside stands along the way! Of course, make sure to bring enough water though, you may run into traffic or local joints that decided to close.

7. It won't hurt to check the weather before you leave

Last but not least, check the weather. Although Kahului car rentals are resistant, you won't have as much fun if it rains along the way.
