Hawaii Car Rental ~ Insurance for International Travelers, Kihei, Hawaii

 

This article focuses on people residing overseas that are planning to Rent a car in Hawaii. There is a world of difference when if comes to insurance (inclusive or optional). This is very important because folks may be accustomed to built in coverage’s, only to find out the vehicle booked has optional coverage.

Those expecting coverage’s included with their rental car could have a rude awakening at the counter! 

This happen’s when the customer is unaware insurance’s are not included. Many of the 3rd party booking sites populate rates only, they can not provide automated options such as insurance, car seats, etc. This is due to the limitations of the systems capabilities. They normally mention that options such as insurance, cars seats, etc are not included, but are readily available at the counter at the car rental agencies rate. 

Going deeper.… People residing in European countries, folks residing in Australia, New Zealand often receive car rental quotes with LDW & ALI coverage’s built in (inclusive) from their home country. This differs greatly from folks residing within the United States. US citizens often have built in coverage using their own auto policy as well as secondary* coverage on the credit card used.. Whereas many other countries do not have these same benefits. 

Pricey...The optional over-the-counter coverage in the States is quite expensive averaging around $30 daily for LDW (Loss Damage Waiver) & $18 for ALI (Additional Liability Insurance), adding $50 daily to a quote adds up fast. 

Third party companies such as these sell affordable policies.
