You love Hawaii, specifically the Island of Maui. However, you need a vehicle to use while on holiday. How do you go about choosing who to rent from?
There are many car rental services in Maui. You can quickly rent a car right at the airport! However, as with all car rental services all over the United States (and the world), due diligence is advised when choosing the most appropriate for your use.
Find out the factors you need to consider before you rent a vehicle while planning your trip to Maui.
Check Online Reviews
The easiest way to find a good car rental service in Maui is to simply go online and research on the various service providers available on their website. If they have a social media page, even better.
These online portals will allow you to check the car rental’s user reviews. These are the quickest sources of feedback on their services. Social media pages are the best since people tend to give detailed stories of their experiences.
While checking the reviews, be curious enough to look for feedback concerning less-than-stellar services. The way these questions are answered will give you a hint of the kind of after-sale service to expect.
Expected Weather Patterns
Everybody loves the open jeeps that are popular in Hawaii, and with the perfect weather, they make awesome vehicles.
While Maui doesn’t have icy winters or baking hot summers, rain is quite a common occurrence. If your trip falls during the rainy season (which corresponds to the winter in the Northern hemisphere), then you may think twice about getting an open jeep (or any open vehicle for that matter).
If you are a fan of off-road trails, a four-wheel drive would be advised.
The ‘summer’ months tend to be drier, but you may still get rained on. Maui experiences rain throughout the year but winter months are exceptionally wet. Open jeeps are not particularly a good idea at this point.
Costs and Obligations
As a first timer in Maui, you will need all the details about the cost of renting the vehicle. Many marketers often give the baseline prices, conveniently keeping additional costs to themselves.
While this practice is good for closing sales, it can leave a new visitor grappling with additional costs they couldn’t have fathomed.
Another good habit is to ask what obligations are expected of you with regards to the vehicle’s use. You are expected to state that you will use the vehicle for personal use, and who will be the driver.
You will definitely need a valid driving license.
Renting the Jeep
Having to rent a jeep on Maui Island is actually much easier than thought. The above guidelines are to brief you on what to look out for before the whole process.
Once you have settled on your car rental service provider, you may book your vehicle and simply have the convenience of renting it from the convenience of the branches located at the airport – no extra trips to offices.
