Rental car return time for Lihue 6:30am flight

Jump to last reply

We will be flying Hawaiian Air LIH-HNL on a Saturday morning at 6:30am.
How early should we be in the terminal for security screening with carryon bags only?

The Hawaiian Air check in starts at 5:00am and ticketing at 5:15am.

I currently have an Avis rental car (good deal unless the hours don't work). Their site says they open at 5:30am.
I thought I would check if they have after hour drop off. It looks like from the map that one can walk across the parking lot to/from terminal to Avis cars? True or need to ride shuttle from lot? I am concerned that if we cannot return car before 5:30am, then have to ride a shuttle, that we will not get through security and to the gate by the required 6:00am.

We are staying at the Kauai Beach Resort that advertises an airport shuttle, so I could also check with them about returning the car the night before and taking shuttle to/from hotel. I would have to verify that they could get us to the airport that early.

Or I will book with an agency that says it opens at 5:00am like Hertz.

Thanks for your experience with LIH and rental cars.
