If you take a rental car on a prohibited road, all that means is that you void your LDW coverage. But, if you decline the rental company coverages it doesn't make much difference; you can't void a coverage you didn't have in the first place.This is still out of bounds for rental cars, right?

I thought I remembered seeing signs saying rental cars were not allowed to go off paved roads. In fact, I'm sure of it. I always decline the LDW so I don't know what the impact of going off paved roads would be. But, I do remember seeing signs saying you had to stay to paved roads.
If you read your rental contract, it will say that if you drive the vehicle on an unpaved road, all damage waivers are void. Meaning that you pay for any damages to the vehicle. But if you declined the coverages, you are already liable for any damage to the vehicle already.
Glad to hear it. I'm not sure I can talk the family into going all the way around. But, I'd love to try it!
Not sure I'd drive a convertible past Hana because they ride so low and there are quite a few bumps/potholes in the road (or at least there used to be). My friends and their teenage daughters got a flat tire in their convertible past Hana. Luckily their cell phone worked because although the car had a spare tire, they couldn't find the special wrench needed to remove it from the trunk. They called for service but were stranded out there until 2:30 in the morning. Then they had another 2 hour drive home. It cost them about $500 because AAA didn't cover so far out.
