You can search for the multi-passenger vans on our website by selecting the large van box bottom left of the car class filter section.
Due to the nature of the 12 passenger van, there are different rules regarding renting. The minimum age of a driver may need to be 25 years or older. A credit card may be required upon pick up as some suppliers restrict the use of a debit card.
Sometimes these vans can not be used to transport children for school-related functions. Although with an automatic transmission in some cases, a Class B license may be required. It is important to read the details in the rental agreement to ensure you qualify for a large van rental.
WHY CHOOSE A LARGE VAN RENTAL IN HAWAII?
Renting a full size van in Hawaii is a good way to mobilize a larger family along with baggage, a wheelchair, or supplies. Often a more convenient and comfortable experience compared to transport shuttle services or the use of a chartered tour bus. The side sliding door allows for easy passenger flow. Naturally suited for a sports team, or a group of friends just wanting to travel the Islands of Hawaii sightseeing. Full-size passenger vans are generally available at all the major airports of Oahu, Kauai, Maui, and the Big Island locations of Kona and Hilo.
However, 12-Passenger Vans are usually of limited supply in Hawaii so it is best to book several months in advance. You can always cancel the vehicle later if it is not needed. To check for our limited rates, and to reserve yourself please use our simple booking structure today.

LARGE PASSENGER VAN RENTAL ADVICE & TIPS
LARGE VANS WITH SEATING FOR OVER 10 OCCUPANTS
U.S. DEPARTMENT OF TRANSPORTATION LARGE VAN ADVISORY: These vans do not meet Federal Bus Safety Standards and therefore can not be used to transport children in any grade up to and including the twelfth grade, other than family members, for any school-related functions.
Rollover risks for the12-passenger van dramatically increase as the number of occupants rises toward full capacity. Putting any kind of load on the roof of the Van also contributes to this risk.
These two conditions will change the larger van’s center of gravity, making the van less resistant to rollover and allows it to handle differently from smaller vehicles, creating more difficulty to control situations in an emergency. Most rollovers are single-vehicle incidents where the vehicle leaves the road and overturns when it strikes softer soil, an embankment or ditch, or another object.
TIPS FOR PREVENTING ROLLOVER
Be well rested, maintain a safe and legal speed for the weather and road conditions and be especially careful on curved and dimly lit rural roads. If the wheels do drop off the roadway, gradually reduce the speed and carefully steer back onto the roadway as soon as it is safe to do so.
BUCKLE UP FOR SAFETY
80% of fatalities in rollover accidents are due to passengers not wearing their seat belts. Seat belt use is a must to save injuries and loss of life. It is always the driver’s responsibility to enforce the use of seatbelts.
OTHER TIPS FOR SAFE DRIVING
When the vehicle is not completely full, have your passengers sit in the seats in front of the rear axle. Make sure to obey the maximum seating capacity. Because these vans are substantially longer and wider than cars, they require more space and you will need to rely on the side-view mirrors for passing. These larger vans do not respond as well to abrupt steering maneuvers and will require additional breaking time.
Be careful entering underground parkades as these vehicles have a height in excess of 208.28 centimetres and in some cases may exceed some parking environments.
