Rent a Car at Maui Airport (OGG)

Kahului (OGG) is the primary airport for the Island of Maui. Flights from overseas as well as most inter-island airlines arrive at this location. This is the second busiest airport in Hawaii, with the newest terminal facilities, and sits on over 1300 acres 3 miles east of Kahului. Getting a car rental in the Maui, Hawaii airport is easy and recommended!

The facility for car rentals at OGG in Hawaii is newly constructed, and is accessible from the airport. After picking up your luggage, board the tram, arrive at the Conrac facility and look for the car company you are booked with.

Mid December to March, and during summer are the busiest seasons for car rentals, and availability is more limited. It is always best to book your car rental in Maui as soon as you have your flight confirmed. We don’t advise waiting until the last minute to arrange your Maui car rental – the most popular choices may be sold out.

In addition to the OGG car rental companies, the airport is well equipped with facilities to assist arriving and departing Canadian guests. Duty Free shops, restaurants, banking services, and specialty shopping are all available at this airport. Special information desks, airline lounges, and lost and found are all available to help with your immediate needs.

Most of the Maui car rental companies are located right at the Conrac facility on airport grounds. This facility is accessed by a tram. You can pick up your luggage and then board the tram, or if your passengers do not need to sign on as extra drivers, you can go pick up the vehicle while your passengers wait for the luggage. If you have any disabilities and will need specialized equipment for your car rental in Maui, please let us know well in advance so we can have it installed and ready when you arrive. Some car companies carry more specialized equipment and we are able to make those arrangements for you.

What happens if Canadian visitors need to cancel their rental car in Maui?

Canadian visitors can always cancel their reservation for free right up until pick up time. There are no charges at any time to cancel. Once you pick up the vehicle, if you find you need to cancel before your return date, it is always best to contact us for the correct way to handle this, and hopefully save you money, as you would be breaking your original contract, and could get charged at the current daily rate for days used.

Is Uber available in Maui?

Do Canadian visitors need insurance for a rental car in Maui?

Insurance is optional in Hawaii, but if you find yourself in an accident without insurance, you may end up having some very large costs on your hands. You can check your own Canadian car insurance policy and the policy attached to the credit card you may be using to see what car insurance coverage you may already have. You may have to purchase insurance at the counter, but always check ahead, and sometimes you can find better rates by purchasing privately, instead of through the car rental companies.
