    Will be at MOC in late August next year. Looking for a reasonable Standard sized car and rates (Costco, AARP, Priceline, etc.) seem to be hovering around $420 (fees and taxes included). Any cheaper and reliable rental car suggestions?

    Make a reservation at the best price then track it on Autoslash.com. Check out TUG threads on how it works.

    Keep checking Costcotravel for changes, but also check Auto slash. We usually use Costco, but autoslash was better for our recent trip to Maui. We ended up with a standard size car from Thrifty and everything went very smoothly.

    Best regards.

    If you register your rental with AutoSlash you don't need to keep checking Costco. And once it's registered to be tracked you don't need to keep checking AutoSlash either. They will do the checking for you and notify you when they find a lower price.

    You also may have access to your company's discount, which is often made available for employees' leisure use. Otherwise carefully consider if you actually need a vehicle for your entire visit. We rent a car to get to the resort after visiting Costco and Safeway, Then we turn it in, and rent for a day if we need to go somewhere. Maui bus is $2 per trip, Uber is cheap and plentiful. A day rental (one way) is about $60, lea

    Consider renting off-airport. It's only a $10 taxi ride to Enterprise, for example. We did that in Sept for an 18-day rental and saved beaucoup $...and received an upgraded vehicle. We have another such booking for next May...both arranged through Costco. One catch...you need to arrive at their office before 5 pm.

    I can't imagine going to Maui without a car. But from where we stay in Kihei we pretty much use a car to get everywhere. The beach we like is a drive, most of the restaurants are a drive, to get groceries is a drive. Parking is free at our timeshare. If we have the car available we don't have to make arrangements to rent for the one, or two days we want, take the time to pick it up, return it, etc.

    I previously wrote to you about Priceline in a different thread. I am in Maui the same week as you and I have booked an SUV for $232 for the week. Just checked Priceline again and standard/large is going for $208 for the week.

    I rented from Hertz in August. Cost was $482.88 which breaks down to $305 for 12 days in a "D" class car, plus $123 in taxes/fees. I was upgraded to a G class car at no additional cost.
