Many Hawaii travelers will pick up their discount vehicle at the Kahului (OGG) or Kapalua (JHM) airport location upon arrival and use it for the entire time they are visiting the Island of Maui. This is a popular option, as you are ensured that you have a good vehicle for your entire stay.

This will probably save you time and money exploring Kaanapali and any other trips you may have planned. Although there are taxis, tour buses and some rideshare options, these can be challenging and often become an expensive mode of transport. For those that do not require a vehicle for their entire vacation or have arrived by cruise ship, there are West Maui car rental options in town.

Zip-Line Tours

Temperatures can get intense towards the middle of the day but fear not as you can quickly cool off with a zipline that ends in a body of water.
