A: There is so much to do and see in Kona and around the Big Island, that it is highly suggested to rent a car. You can do so at Kona International Airport either through Enterprise, Alamo or Big Island rental car.
Royal Kona Resort offers guests over 21 years of age the option to add an Alamo Rent-A-Car to their room reservation. Pick-up and drop-off are at the Kona International Airport. Contact our Reservations office at 800-22-ALOHA (222-5642) to reserve your car now.
You can also rent a bike, motorcycle or scooter to ride around Kona. Big Island bike and Hawaii motorbike rentals are good options to start.
If renting isn't an option, use Uber or Lyft ride-sharing apps on your smartphone for easy rides all through town. Local taxi companies like Cruz'n Taxi at (808) 325-1234 or Taxi Joe & Shuttle at (808) 329-9090 are also available. Rates may vary so call ahead.
