Located on the western coast of Maui, Lahaina is a popular destination known for its stunning beaches, rich history, and vibrant atmosphere. With a rental car, visitors can operate on their schedule when exploring the city.

Additionally, Lahaina serves as an excellent starting point for day trips to explore the breathtaking landscapes of Maui, including the scenic Road to Hana, Haleakala National Park, and the picturesque Iao Valley.
  • When traveling to Lahaina, Maui, you will likely arrive at Kahului Airport (OGG), which serves the island. Upon landing, you can easily find car rental services from renowned providers like Enterprise, Alamo, Budget, Hertz, and Avis, Budget are located in the airport's arrival terminals. After collecting your luggage, follow the signs directing you to the car rental counters. Car rentals in Lahaina have desks located in Arrivals, at the end of the baggage claim area.

Pros:

My first time in Hawaii and I landed up reserving in the wrong airport. At OGG they told me they would charge me an extra $120 per day to change the reservation. I had to take $100 taxi to get to my car.

Cons:

It wasn’t Avis s fault that I erred in the reservation, but they couldn’t care less of my predicament and were very unsympathetic. On principle I will rent from Avis again.

Pros:

Car was very nice

Cons:

I was charged an EXTRA day because my inter-island flight was cancelled due to bad weather, but I still returned the car before the 48 hour mark so I should NOT have even been charged one extra penny!! The rep at Avis agreed and said I got screwed but they couldn’t alter the extra charge on my contract and said I’d have to go back in the office and stand in a huge line to get the credit, but then I’d MISS MY FLIGHT! I decided to handle it after I got back home to Maui and I emailed Avis and called them but I got NO response! I’m planning to dispute with my credit card if they don’t credit my visa and resolve this issue!

Avis cannot see that I bought insurance through Kayak when I made the reservation, and made me to feel that it was left off somehow by mistake, and that we would therefore have no coverage. We bought insurance from Avis and later found we had coverage through Kayaks provider so it was a waste of money, very unhappy that Avis couldn't see the insurance we had bought.

Cons:

Overpriced.. my flight in Maui was cancelled,and it was redirected to another airport in Maui. When asked to changed my pick up to the new airport, they charged me with todays’s price. It didn’t matter if I had booked and paid this in advance(which was much lesser). Extra costs like one way fee etc was understandable, changing the daily charges from 40$ per day to 100$ per day is unacceptable.. the car they provided was clean and good but this place is clearly overpriced for emergency changes in schedules.

Pros:

We went to Kahului accidentally and reservation was in Lahaina. The agent was able to accomodate our reservation in Kahului.

Cons:

The shuttle line from the airport was 1 hr. Long. We waited outside in the heat for another 45 min. on a list just to go inside. Then another 45 min. inside in line to meet an agent. Fortunately, our car was ready, but some folks were waiting another 45 min. For the car to be cleaned. We saw elderly people and pregnant women outside in the heat of mid afternoon. Disgraceful!

Pros:

Nothing- I’ll never use National again, or Rentacars.com

Cons:

I made the reservation to pick up the car at OGG in Maui. The reservation kicked me over to pick up at the airport in West Maui, without my knowledge. When I discovered this three days before my trip, I tried to call and remedy the situation. No cars were available at OGG, which I understand, due to low inventory. The real clincher was when I told the National office in West Maui that I wouldn’t be able to pick up for an hour later than originally planned, due to now having to take an expensive Uber to get there after landing. They told me I was out of luck since the office closes at 5pm. I was basically screwed. I had to make a new reservation at Avis (last minute) for $800 more, which pretty much ruined my vacation.

Hertz was terrible because they said YOU were responsible for my rental contract and nothing could be changed, fixed, or resolved about the rental contract, even though every email and contact was directed towards Hertz. Not once did they say “call Kayak.” The staff never answered their phones, and when they did, they put me on hold for 30 minutes, and between Anthony, Rhona, Carli and DJ (JD?), only the last person tried to help, and he worked for the Hertz Roadside recovery out of Ohio. Ridiculous. Never making that mistake to work through Kayak or Hertz again. I haven’t even received a receipt saying that my car was returned, even though it was 12 hours ago. Do you have my final contract? Bad service all around.
