Airport Car Rental
Hilo International Airport is one of the two airports on the island of Hawai’i (the Big Island). It is located on the Hilo coast on the eastern side of the island. The other airport, Kona International Airport is on the western side of the island. Though Hilo used to be the main gateway to the island, Kona Airport is now much larger and busier. Hilo is still a quaint airport that is a pleasure for those who do travel through it. Due to having much fewer passengers, airport security is much quicker making the process of dropping off a rental car through boarding your plane a breeze.

Services and facilities
While there is no hotel at the airport, there are many located a short drive away from it. Many of them don’t provide an airport shuttle, but a taxi ride should not be expensive if you want to drop your rental car off a day earlier.
Being a smaller airport, there is not as large of a selection of dining and shopping as there would be in larger airports. There is a newsstand, a gift shop, and two restaurants.
There is one ATM but there is no currency exchange available at the airport. Currency can be exchanged if transiting through the Honolulu Airport, but using an ATM or paying with your card most often provide better rates.
Visitor Information desks are located in the arrivals and departures areas and provide visitors with all of the information they need regarding travel and accommodation.
