KAYAK’s top tips for hiring a car in Kahului

  • Get the most out of your trip to Kahului with a hire car. Explore everything this scenic area has to offer, from the beach to the Twin Falls Maui Waterfall (about 19 miles from Kahului center) to the West Maui Forest Reserve. Discover the beauty of Maui nature with the comfort and flexibility a hire car can offer.
  • Kahului Airport is just under 4 miles from the city center and features a hire car center with eight companies represented, including Avis, Enterprise, Hertz, and Thrifty. The service center can be found at the end of the Baggage Claim Area, but shuttle buses from the terminals also operate and bring travelers to and from the hire center. Depending on where you stay, the drive into the city via Lanui Cir will take about 10 minutes.
  • The driving speed in Maui is generally lower than in most parts of the world, so lean back and enjoy a pleasant, relaxed, and hassle-free ride. Interstates and freeways are not common around Kahului and streets can be narrow, so drive at a moderate speed. Despite the stunning scenery, keep your eyes on the road, as deer and the occasional cow can cross at any given time, but especially at dusk and dawn.
  • Driving in Kahului is not recommended during 4 and 6 PM, as this is the general rush hour in Maui and many roads are narrow, meaning contraflow traffic can be a bit challenging. If possible, venture out in the mornings and return after 6 PM to avoid congestion. Kahului is renowned for its beautiful weather, but torrential rain showers can also occur -- it is not advisable to hit the road when it is pouring out.
  • Book your car hire in Kahului at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Economy car hire in Kahului are around 60% cheaper than other car types, on average

Insights shared by verified travellers who hired a car in Kahului 
GordDec 2023
Most local drivers in Maui are very courteous. No horns, glares or middle fingers anywhere! Bring their spirit home to wherever you live and drive the same way.
Verified travelerJan 2024
We got a jeep- would recommend a jeep or SUV or similar if exploring the island as some roads are rough
Verified travelerFeb 2024
Driving was fine. Very busy going South on the island about 4:00 pm
Verified travelerFeb 2024
Make sure the rental car company you choose is actually located at the airport.
Verified travelerOct 2023
Follow the traffic rules. If you take road to Hana and have never done it before, be extra cautious and courteous on the road. If someone is behind you, find a safe spot to let the other car pass you.
Kiefer-LaurentNov 2023
Respect the roads on Maui. Leave your big city driving habits at home, and enjoy your time.
Verified travelerOct 2023
Please dive slow and respect the native people and culture. Mahalo

Keep on mind that car needs to be return same way you picked up. Remove sand w vacuum before returning it. Will save you the cleaning fee.
MyrnaNov 2023
Verify exact location if getting there other than lying into the airport. A shuttle service to and from your location would be extremely welcoming.
Verified travelerOct 2023
Like driving in any other State. The only thing is the highest speed limit on highway was 45 mph

Definitely rent a car and explore!

When you get in the car, have your phone flashlight or something available and on. Quickly open the door, and check for bugs. They scatter quick. But they only come out in the dark. So you may see it in a parking garage or your won’t know till night time hits. CHECK YOUR VEHICLE!! Hawaii is starting to have problems.
Verified travelerAug 2023
Well…we were evacuated at 3:45, so our driving experience was not typical. Otherwise I would advise to be patient and remember that we are visitors to the island and to respect the locals make their livelihoods and homes there.
Verified travelerAug 2023
Check your personal car insurance first — insurance was expensive. And take video and photos of the car at pick up and drop off — ours had a lot of damaged paint that we didn’t want to be held responsible for.
LisaJun 2023
If you plan to drive the island make sure you are comfortable driving the car you get. The mountain areas can be very tight driving conditions and even 1 lane bridges.
matthewJun 2023
Would not recommend a Chevy Equinox. It was okay but not great.
Verified travelerMay 2023
Drive with aloha, nowhere near enough people do anymore and it is not just the tourists. As far as a rental car place that is closed at 4 pm in a place where 90% of the mainland departures leave for red eye flights is perplexing.
BrentMay 2023
Rent with ACE but be prepared it is off site but still close by airport. Gas station is conveniently located across the street from location and shuttles run every 10-15min which is good.
taosMay 2023
Ace is the best go with Ace
DavidMay 2023
Nothing remarkable to report here. It's pretty easy to navigate. Like a lot of touristy places, parking is hit-or-miss.

FAQs about hiring a car in Kahului

  • What type of car is recommended for driving in Kahului?

    Since many streets in Kahului are narrow, a compact car is a good choice for a vacation here. Additionally, a smaller car will ease the parking lot search and contraflow traffic will be grateful when you can whizz through the lanes without blocking the road.

  • What’s the speed limit in Kahului?

    Always adhere to the speed limits in Kahului, even if others do not, as the traffic law enforcement is pretty strict in Maui. Embrace the “aloha” driving style and relax your speed, as Hawaii is the state with the lowest maximum speed, allowing 55 mph on freeways and 25 mph in residential areas and when children are in the vicinity. Also look at the speed limit posted and adhere to it, or go slower if the road or weather conditions demand it.

  • Where are the best places to park in Kahului?

    If your hotel does not have a parking lot, a good alternative is the P+R in the south of Kahului or the Kahului Park, where cars can be parked conveniently. Street parking is also an option, but usually only allowed for up to 60 minutes and not overnight, so opting for a hotel with a parking lot or using a public parking garage is preferable.

Maybe not sell off cars next time they are sitting around waiting for a pandemic to end. Also maybe not gouge those of us who had to use our airline tickets before they expire and we all show up to Hawaii at once. I guess I’m glad I paid double instead of triple the price, or at least we had a car. Thanks for having a few left. The trip was great. The car was great. The price was not. I hope my donation goes to getting some more cars so I don’t have to worry about it next time. I’d have done the exact same thing if I was in your shoes.

Pros:

Staff was exceptional. I was assisted checking in at a kiosk and probably did it in less than five minutes. At the drop off, I was done in about the same time. I should have taken longer because I left my prescription glasses in the car. But they found them and contacted me before id even had time to file a claim.

Cons:

I dislike the USB connection in the car (I know: a manufacturer’s problem). The unit never communicated adequately with my iPhone, wouldn’t display my map, and insisted on playing my music in alphabetical order, starting over each time I started the car.

Not sure I got the best deal. I rented through Kayak and was quoted a price. My CC got compromised shortly after ordering my car through Kayak. When I went to pickup my car at Sixt the agent wanted my CC used to rent the car. I asked why it was already paid. I told him what happened the the CC. He said he would have to cancel the prior reservation, and start over. When all said and done I feel the car cost was more than the orignal reservation. Did not want to hassle with it as long as I got refunded my orignal purchase. Six days later the refund posted. The guy at the counter was nice but the whole process did not make since given the car had already been paid and appoved. Any additional expenses should have been applied to the new CC. When checking out the rental no one walked through the car inspection. No way to document any damage observed prior to driving off. Also no option to pay for fuel in advance or at least it was never explained. Most agencies tell you the cost of fuel at the rental car and give you the option to pay in advance. Checking the car in the lady was friendly and inspected the car thoroughly same thing should be done initialy ensuring the leasee understands the features of the car. I had one experience where I failed to shut the drivers door completely and when I tried to to put the car in reverse it locked up and would go saying parking assist engaged. Spent 20 minutes playing with the car until i realized that the car would not engage because the door had not completely closed. I would rent from them again.

Being required to buy extra insurance at the airport check-in kiosk before I could pick up the car was a real downer, and a bad way to start a vacation. Technically not "required", but being told that without it they would take the car out of service and charge me an unspecified daily "loss of use" fee while they corrected anything they determined was a defect (such as a car park door ding or a windshield chip) comes to the same thing.

The car’s dashboard system said an oil change was needed when I started the car, but the staff said that Hertz has a different idea of how frequently the oil needs to be changed than Nissan does, so we drove for 10 days in a car that needed an oil change. It felt a little unsettling, but nothing bad seemed to happen. As an after thought, I would have taken a pic of the dashboard in case something had happened and Hertz tried to pin it on our usage.

Pros:

The representative was attentive to my needs.

Cons:

The SUV had roaches in it which was crawling on my baby. My wife was killing them left and right. We would of turned around but we were crunched for time. It took forever to get a car, and i was the only one there. Terrible experience

Cons:

Due to Covid-19 my flights were cancelled but despite calling several times never heard back from Advantage. And intend to receive a refund (which is I’m sure why I haven’t heard from them).

Pros:

Friendly, pretty quick

Cons:

Maybe two sets of keys just in case you lock a set in the car. Never happened but a thought. Would have preferred having a fob to lock and unlock

Cons:

VERY SLOW pickup process. Each customer is at the counter 10-15 minutes, spending most of the time finding off agressive up-selling attempts - car upgrades, gas options, and mostly insurance add-ons. They hide the option of declining supplemental insurance altogether. Forcing you to choose between three levels. They pepper you with scare tactics. This all takes a lot of time. The car itself, not the model promised. Reserved a Toyota RAV5, got a large SUV. Poorer gas mileage and difficulty parking in resort's small parking spots. Car condition was pretty poor - lots of dings and scratches. Which need to be carefully documented, requiring more time. Car ran fine. Go with the major rental companies. You'll likely be about to pickup your reserved vehicle with little or no time spent at the counter.

Cons:

Did not have SUV and gave us a mini van that we did not like. When we drove to our condo the tire pressure light came on. We then noted a tire with a slow leak that had been pumped up for rental. We called to return the car and the person in duty found and reserved an SUV for us, which was good but we had to pay for the gas to return to airport to return van! As a courtesy, the person also gave us a 90 minute extension to return the vehicle but only noted it in the file, we were charged a $35 overage and had to stand in line at counter to ask someone to read notes and adjust, which was done, but was another hassle. We were also told it would be best to buy a tank of gas at 3.29 per gallon, but we are not told it came with $30+ of airport taxes which was ridiculous. We had to call and get that changed too. We filled up the tank which was almost empty on the SUV for $40 at Costco vs the $85 you tried to charge us. TAXES on tsnk of gas should be disclosed. In addition we were renting car from 4pm to 5pm return assuming there was a one hour grace period that is standard. When flight arrived early so we picked up car at 3:30pm, agent charged us for two additional hours without disclosing it. Lots of sneaky things we didn’t notice on contract until we read the print out on way home. People at Kahului we’re all very nice and fixed all we needed. It’s not them that appear to be wrong, it’s the company. We will rent from you again but will not take a van, will not take gas, and will look for system sneaking extra hours on the contract.

Pros:

Car was clean.

Cons:

I reserved a "Ford Mustang Convertible or similar model not guaranteed." They had plenty of Mustangs but charged me $350 to "upgrade" to what I literally reserved, a Mustang. Check out was slow as they tried to sell options and there was no one there when I returned the car and although someone appeared, they walked off in another direction.

Good overall except our first car had a low tire pressure light come on so we had to exchange it for another one. Then a few days later the same light came on in our second vehicle so it made us wonder how well the cars are maintained. Also on Kayak it said the rental car location was at the airport but turned out to be offsite which was disappointing.

I booked a car for 109 USD and ended up paying more than 280 USD because of mandatory insurances that were added at the desk. There was no such info on Kayak and all the relevant terms and conditions could be found only after the payment. The lady at the desk was adamant and I could not leave with the car if I did not add the insurances. Hence, my complaint and disappointment is not only with Ace but also (mainly?) with Kayak for lack of clarity at the time of the booking. This is a fraud and I expect a compensation for it.

The representatives in Maui were outstanding in every way! Not only their professional interactions, but their friendliness. We added my son as a driver the last day and extended the return time without extra cost or difficulty. We are VERY impressed with National Rental based on our recent experience!

Check in and out was great. Vehicle was in terrible shape with lots of scratches and dents. Front bumper was damage and was hanging down. Car smelled musty from probably wet carpet. Glad I took video before leaving because they accused me of damaging the step.
