Kailua-Kona Airport Taxis and Shuttles – Cost and Availability
Our flight arrives in Kona after all the car rental companies are closed (I was told they all close at 10:00 p.m.)
My questions is – would it be best to take a cab from the airport to Keauhou – if so, roughly what wouild be the cost? Should it be reserved in advance? I’m concerned because 300+ people may be looking for transportation to their hotels as they cannot pick up ther rental cars that evening.
Any information on the best way to get to our condo would be appreciated.
I called a couple of taxi companies, and the airport to Keauhou will cost $36 to $39. It doesn’t seem like they take advanced reservations but one company gave me a number of the closest company to the airport if you find yourself unable to get a cab – she said call 329-1977 Mel’s Taxi and they’ll come right down. I can understand your concern, but if the taxi companies know the flight is coming in and they know the car rental companies are closed I am sure they’ll all be ready and waiting.
You also could reserve with speedishuttle- their phone message says they operate every day of the year, from the first flight in the morning to the last flight in the evening.
Have a wonderful vacation! Lisa
