I will be visiting Kauai for the 1st time next year and I am starting to look for pricing for our activities. I came across advantage rent a car in LIH and they are quoting me $260 for a Chevrolet Captiva which looks like a crossover SUV. Their price is cheaper all around, everyone else quoted in the mid to high 300's for the full week we would use the car (Sunday - Sunday). I yelped them and the reviews were extremely mixed. Many 1 stars and then a bunch of 4-5 stars, so I'm really torn as to believe that they wont rip me off at the first chance they get. We will be on our honeymoon in December 2014; so maybe it is still really early to book cars and that is why the price is so high, but I'm not sure. We are hoping for as little drama and stress while we enjoy being newlyweds. I'm hoping those of you who are lucky enough to have either traveled or live in Kauai can help a new traveler who practically grew up in Waikiki (and thus have the knowledge of what to expect there) transition into the Kauai way of life. :)
Thank you for any help you can give!
