Following is a list of transportation information. On Maui, which is 739 square miles, the best thing to do is to rent a car. Nearly every visitor to Maui gets around in a rental car, and for good reason. Many of the island’s best sights can only be reached if you have independent transportation.
All car rental companies are conveniently located at the airport. I would suggest that all persons intending to rent a car have rental car insurance on their personal car insurance. If not, the rental car companies will try to charge ~$1,000 per car for insurance. If the person renting the car doesn’t have the rental car insurance on their policy, it is easy an cheap to add. They can always cancel it when they return home. Seat belt use is required by law.
Here are the available companies at the airport:
“Word of Mouth”

|Alamo||1-800-327-9633 (rents to 21+ drivers)|
|Budget||1-800-527-0700 (cheaper on the internet)|
|Dollar||1-800-800-4000 (rents to 21+ drivers)|
If you want to rent a scooter: Aloha Toy Store 1-808-662-0888 in Lahaina (Must be 20+ years old)
There is a new bus service that you can look at below the website:
www.akinatours.com There is a stop right next to Valley Isle Resort and there is another stop at Whalers Village where the Hyatt is. The phone number is 1-808-879-2828. This bus system would take the guests to most places they would need to go. I would still strongly suggest a rental car for the guests. They will still need to go to other places not on the route. The buses run every hour and the earliest one is 9:47 a.m.
There are some alternate means of transportation that I will give you the websites for. I believe you will not find much of a savings between this and renting a car:
