Where are you flying into? Because it would not be convenient to make two trips from the main airport in Kahului to the other side of the island - where all the timeshares are. It would be more than an hour round-trip.is $359 good rate for 3 weeks in Maui or should I look for lower rate? Car size does not matter and with high gas price, small is good. I don't mind making double trips since Maui is not that big.
Hawaii is tropical and tropical places have bugs. What attracts bugs to cars? - Food. If the previous renter ate in the car, or you do, you will have bugs. We have used Alamo on most of our trips and not had a problem.I am thinking about flying from HNL to OGG. I think airline charging for bags and extra weight is helping us to pack light. Most likely we will buy full of stuff at Costco or at Walmart the next day.
I saw your post of what to pack. I am thinking about using that.
Is Alamo that bad and dirty? Don't they use newer cars?
With Priceline, your credit card is charged as soon as you win the bid, and it is non-cancelable. So don't do it until you are sure of your dates.Can you cancel reservations in Priceline?
I thought neither hotel or car rental from Priceline can be canceled?
If I bid on Priceline, I will pay ahead and be penalized if I don't use it, right?
Glad to help! I've found some great prices with Alamo in Hawaii, as low as $99(with all taxes) a week for a midsize. I often check again as my trip gets closer and find a better price than I have reserved.LAX Mom,
I can't thank you enough for your comment about using Costco codes. I just rebooked with Alamo and got a convertible in Lihue for a week for 179.00 out the door!! (This includes the second driver!!!!) :whoopie: I had originally booked the SAME dates with Alamo at a rate of $378 + cost of second driver.
I had a Costco coupon sitting on my desk next to the computer as I read your post and thought I would give it a try.
