Funky's Rentals is a garage run by Funky Kong during the events of Donkey Kong Country 3: Dixie Kong's Double Trouble!. It serves as the Donkey Kong Country 3 equivalent to Funky's Flights and Funky's Flights II of Donkey Kong Country and Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddy's Kong Quest respectively, but with quite some differences.


Unlike the previous incarnations of Funky's services, his Rentals are only found in one location of the entire game, and that is the southern part of the Northern Kremisphere, near the beginning of the game. It is found to the right to the first Wrinkly's Save Cave (Wrinkly's Retreat, in the Game Boy Advance remake.). Upon entering the first time, Funky will give Dixie Kong her cousin, Kiddy Kong to come along for her adventure in exchange for lending them the boats in shop.

Funky, instead of lending airplanes, gives them motorboats to sail the large waters of the Northern Kremisphere to get to a world. Without a boat, accessing any world is impossible. Funky initially only has a single Motor Boat, but as the Kongs progress and find new items, new boats will be available. They are the Hover Craft (which is featured on the game's box art), which allows them to sail over rocks and the Turbo Ski which is so fast they can sail up waterfalls.

Despite a new boat theme, there is a way to rent a flying vehicle in the game, called the "Gyrocopter"; however, in order to unlock this vehicle, Dixie and Kiddy must collect every single DK Coin and present them to Funky. He will then make the Gyrocopter, which flies over all terrain and can be used to find secret Banana Bird Caves that are needed to fully finish the game.

In the Game Boy Advance remake of the game, Funky Kong also houses a caged Banana Bird at Funky's Rentals. In order to earn it, the Kongs must beat Funky's four new challenges: "Destroy", "Disarm", "Protect" and "Race". The only challenge available at the start is the first one; more become available as Funky builds more vehicles. Also, instead of Dixie and Kiddy selecting a vehicle via the menu, they just simply choose it and hop in.
