Highway to Hana Rental cars

by jocelyn1 Online Now Feb 22, 2004 at 1:18 AM

I am planning a trip to the islands next month and my AAA book says that rental car contracts are void along the Highway 36 to Hana. Do you know of a company I can rent a car from that will let me drive the Highway to Hana?

    Unless this is a new "rule" in their contracts, I'd say that this is incorrect. However, on our last trip, the stretch of highway 31 along the south side of the island from just east of Ulupalakua then heading eastward to about Kaupo was off limits in our contract. This stretch of road is mostly paved. A small section is unpaved and there are a few sharp, blind turns along the narrow roadway. We drove it anyway. However, you are not missing much if you don't. Also note: the section of highway 340 on the far north side (near Kahakuloa) of the island was also off limits. But this area offers some of the most breath-taking views and would be a real disappointment to miss.
