So your flight just landed, and you make your way off the plane and out into the open air terminal. Beautiful Kona sunshine warms your face. “Aloha! Welcome to Ellison Onizuka Kona International Airport at Keahole (I know. It’s a mouth full.)!” After you locate and secure your luggage, you’ll make your way to the curb to meet your ride. If you don’t have a family member or friend picking you up, perhaps you would like to rent a vehicle. Cross the street to the center island. You can catch a shuttle bus that will bring you to any of the major rental car agencies. Housed just a couple of minutes up the road, you’ll find companies such as Budget and Enterprise. If you’re not getting picked up, and you are not interested in renting a car, then a taxi ride to your destination is your best option.
“Where do I catch a taxi cab?”, you may ask. Outside of baggage carousel B2, on the Hawaiian Air and Delta arrivals side, you should see a person holding a sign that reads “Taxi” or “Taxi Dispatch”. Approach that man or woman, and let them know that you’re in need of a taxi. They will, in turn, radio in to the network of mixed independent taxis that are standing by. This is a good quick transportation solution. For those of you that like to have things in place before you arrive, prearranged transportation is the way to go!
When you book your transportation, with D The Driver, I, or another driver, will be waiting for you when you emerge from the gate. We will have a sign that has your name on it! With our six-passenger van, the fare will be the standard taxi rate (Initial $3.00 and $.40 per 1/8 mi). If you need a luxury sedan or SUV, you can state that in your booking details (see those rates here*), and we will take care of you! So go ahead and book your ride today!
