Top Three RV Rental Locations in Hawaii

The most popular cities for RV rental on the Hawaiian Islands are Honolulu and Pearl City on Oahu and Hilo on Hawaii. Typically, those with RV rentals in Hawaii offer modified and upgraded campervans that give drivers plenty of flexibility when navigating the sometimes winding roads found in the more remote areas. Their smaller footprint also allows them to access beach areas, which is perfect for visitors who want to spend their time on the islands snorkeling, fishing, or surfing. These campervans typically start at $150 per night and can accommodate two or three adults. Reviews from campervan renters show that these vehicles offer a great way to easily navigate the islands while providing convenient accommodations. 

Accommodating four or more people and running anywhere from $200 to $400 per night, larger Class A and Class C motorhomes are also available for rental. Some rentals will allow pets. Most of these rentals also offer delivery right to the airport so that you’re ready to start your Hawaiian adventure the moment you step off the plane. Motorhome renters also enjoyed their experience and often specifically mentioned the great communication they had with owners renting their vehicles in Hawaii.
