MauiCarRental.com was formed to give our viewers the best prices on Maui car rentals. In order to do this, we have negotiated rates with companies on the island. Being specific to Maui has given us the upper hand in negotiating lower prices.
The short answer is yes, a rental car in Maui is highly recommended. It offers convenience and flexibility and can be cost-effective if you plan to explore more than three attractions on the island.
Yes, most definitely. If you wait until the last minute and try to get a rental car at the airport, you may find no cars available or end up paying 2-3 times as much. We recommend reserving a vehicle as early as possible to get the lowest rate. In fact, you can book early and check back on our website for even lower rates. If you do find a lower rate, you can rebook and cancel your previous reservation. There is never a fee or penalty to cancel your rental.
Due to staff shortages, our car rental company partners often have long lineups. When your flight lands, you may want to send the main driver off to pick up the vehicle while the rest wait for the luggage.
We have found the best prices for any car rental within Maui County at the OGG Maui Airport or at an off-airport location in Maui. Check us first, then see if you can find a better price anywhere else.
Yes, but there are no longer shuttles from the ports to the rental lots. The majority of renters are now using ride-sharing apps to access rental companies.
We never charge for cancellations; you may help another customer by freeing up the car you reserved. Cancel or change your discount Maui Car Rental reservation.
Renters under 25 (20-24) can rent from a wide variety of car classes, from compact cars to SUVs with a valid driver’s license and a credit card. Some companies such as Avis will only rent to those 25 years old and above. Other providers charge a daily young driver fee of ̶$̶2̶0̶ to $̶2̶7̶/̶d̶a̶y̶ ̶ plus taxes. But wait, we have negotiated a discounted young driver fee, saving you up to $20/day. The only limitation would be availability and/or location.
If we can’t get you the lowest rate for a specific vehicle or time, we’ll refer you to a competitor through a link. Our first concern is getting you the lowest rate on your car.
You need to reserve separately per island you visit. Come to us for your Maui car rental to get the best price while in Maui. We have a partner that offers great prices on the other Hawaiian islands. Visit Aloha Rents Discount Hawaii Car Rental for rentals on the other Hawaiian Islands.
Each and every Car or Jeep we rent is automatic.

Enterprise is the only company that does not offer a child safety seat. The other companies will let you rent one on-site.
You may not drive your vehicle off-road. Most everywhere you go on Maui is paved. The only exceptions are when you travel deep into and past the town of Hana on some dirt roads, but you won’t need to go to these places unless you have family or friends that live there. Most of these roads are mild too unless it’s been raining. The backside of Haleakala is also forbidden but locals still use it to drive back around the island after visiting Hana.
The car rental companies are now located in the Car Rental Center. Simply use the crosswalk as you leave the Kahului baggage claim area. Walk across the street and then hop on the 4-minute trolley ride to the Car Rental Center. You’ll be set up with a car, or directed towards the exit.
No. Insurance is only added to your rental if you request it. Most people find that their current insurance providers will cover them while renting a car in Maui. Some credit card companies also offer coverage for free. Be sure to look into this before you travel to Maui.
Yes, so long as the card has major credit card company logos on it.

You may not smoke in Avis, Budget, Dollar, Payless, Hertz, Budget, Enterprise, and Thrifty car rentals. Some other providers may offer vehicles to smoke in. You’ll need to search the internet to find such companies.
Yes, longer-term Maui car rentals are popular with renters staying for an extended length of time and allow some days where you are only paying the taxes on the rental. However, some car rental companies will split up longer-term rentals of over 60 days at the counter and may expect you to drop off and exchange a car if it is a much longer rental so the vehicle can get receive its regular maintenance.
And if they do, is it possible to charge the card on file?
If your additional driver has been added to rental by the car company, then yes they can return the vehicle.
The charges will still go onto the card that was presented at pickup.
The person returning the vehicle just has to make sure the rental is full with fuel (keep the gas receipt in case they want to see it). They just return the car and then get onto the shuttle back to the terminal; they don’t have to go into the car rental office at all.
The safety of our customers and the maintenance of our vehicles are of utmost importance. There are just a few key driving restrictions to be aware of on Maui. For a visual guide, we offer a map of Maui highlighting all these restricted areas.

Our rental cars come with a full-to-full fuel policy, although prepay is also an option. You’ll pick up the vehicle with a full tank and you’ll be expected to return it with a full tank. Charges will apply if the car is not returned with a full tank.
Yes, additional fees may apply for extra services such as GPS, prepaid fuel, or if you’re returning the car to a different location. All fees will be clearly outlined in your rental agreement.
