I wish we got the car we booked. The car we received was vibrating while braking at freeway speeds and made us feel completely unsafe. We changed our car the next day for free and no hassle process.Reviewed Jul 6 2021

Pros:Let switch drop off after airline messed us up.Cons:There was definitely a speed sensor that would ding when you went 56 mph. That was super annoying 😒Reviewed Apr 29 2021
review fromkayak
Pros:The counter person was pretty nice and friendly. The check in and check out was really quick. We love the vehicle because it accommodated our whole family and the purpose for the rental and it was a really smooth and comfortable ride.Cons:The rental company should have cleaned the vehicle before renting it out. It was really dirty, inside and out, and my daughter found a used, dirty mask, that could have exposed us to Covid!!! There was dirt in the center council and in the storage compartments on the doors, and the vehicle looked like it hadn’t been vacuumed. Also, there were smudges/hand and fingerprints on the windows and center council. We really would expect a higher level of cleanliness during a time like this!!!Reviewed Nov 22 2020

Top tips for renting a car from Dollar in Hilo

  • Dollar car rentals in Hilo have a range of car types for travelers who wish to introduce the flexibility of a rental car on their Hilo trip. The streets of downtown Hilo are narrow owing to street parking, making it reasonable to rent a compact vehicle if you plan to cruise in the city center. A convertible is an ideal alternative if you are looking to enjoy the beach atmosphere of Hilo. You may be visiting Hilo with friends and family, which necessitates a large vehicle. We recommend selecting a van or SUV so everyone can enjoy the trip in comfort.
  • Before you book a Dollar car rental in Hilo, be sure to join Dollar Express Rewards, their loyalty program. Joining the program is free, and you can start collecting points immediately. Once registered, the company will give you points every time you rent a car with Dollar. You must rack up over 500 points to start claiming free weekend or daily rentals in a vehicle category of your choice. Dollar also offers Travel Partner Rewards, where you can earn points by taking flights and staying in hotels that are partnered with the agency.
  • Dollar car rentals in Hilo are flexible when it comes to modifying or canceling your reservation. Their cancellation policy states that you can cancel a booking online via the company’s official website. You can get a refund for all cancellations made up to a day before the pickup date. Dollar will assess a $50 charge and refund the rest of your prepayment. However, the fee may hike to $100 if you cancel less than 24 hours before picking up your rental. Be careful with no-shows, as you may have to forfeit your entire prepayment if you don’t collect the car without notifying the company beforehand.
