Kahului, one of the largest of the Hawaiian islands, offers some of the most breathtaking sceneries in the whole of Hawaii. However, the island is also quite large and learning the best ways to get around.

A Good Old Fashioned Taxi

Taxi’s are easy to find and generally are a comfortable option to get to and from the airport. There are several taxi services on the island and you can find them around the airport at all times. The pro’s to taking the taxi is that, after a long haul flight, one does not have to worry about having to find out where the hotel or resort is and how to get there. The con is that taxis are by no means cheap to move around the island on a daily basis and at peak hours availability might be an issue.

Going Quick and Easy with a Car Rental

Renting a car is definitely the way to go if one has in mind to do a lot of sightseeing and exploring over the course of a more than a week. Renting is more economical than taxi or shuttles and gives tourists the freedom to explore and move on their own terms. Several companies operate on the island, including Hertz, Avis and National. However if one’s objective is to relax and not move around too far from the hotel and resort, renting is not necessary. Besides, parking can be a headache and young drivers might have to pay extra fees to rent a car.

Airport Shuttle Service in Kahului

The Airport Shuttle Service in Kahului is the most recommended for getting to and from the airport. One can book a shuttle to wait at the airport and deliver the tourists and all their cumbersome luggage straight to the hotel at a price comparable to that of a taxi, without having to wait for one in peak hours. While more expensive than public transportation or rental, shuttles provide better comfort, reliability and time efficiency. VIP Trans Maui has an excellent service and is the perfect choice to avoid wasting time and energy moving around the island.
