          I will be spending 7 days at Kalani for a retreat and I want to rent a car after the retreat is over, to continue exploring Big Island. Where is the best place to rent a car after the Kalani retreat and what's the best way to get from Kalani to the car rental place? Thanks! :)

          Aloha - most of the major car rental companies have counters at Hilo Airport, and some in Hilo town itself. We are able to provide you with a shuttle back to the airport so you can pick up your rental car. Mahalo!
