Most people think vacationing in Maui will cost a small fortune – and it can, if you don’t do your research and plan accordingly. While you may want to consider one of our Maui condo rentals so you can relax, enjoy privacy and spectacular views, and have all of the luxuries (equipped kitchen, bedrooms, the latest technology, etc.) at your disposal, and not be stepping over your friends or family members trying to make room in a hotel room, there are lots of other ways to stay within you budget. Check out our tips below!
The thing is, you don’t have to sacrifice fun or enjoyment during your vacation. The trick is to be smart, whether it comes to visiting during certain times of the year (when resorts and hotels are offering discounts), car rentals, dining out, airfare, or enjoying other savings.
Naturally airfare is a big expense, but if you plan your vacation during a slower season, compare the prices of various airlines, what the cost is if you fly overnight compared to busier times or even the days of the week, or whether it’s cheaper to fly during the holiday season or at a time when it isn’t a holiday – you can save substantially.
Car rentals are a big deal. Most people like having a vehicle at their disposal to tour around the island, but renting a car can quickly deplete your vacation budget. So, how can you save on a car rental for your Maui vacation? Compare rental quotes on various online sites, and be sure to research whether taxes, fees, or other costs are included. Many people save substantially on rental vehicles by using the “Name Your Own Price” service to bid on certain types of cars, vans, etc. at Priceline.com.
Save on dining out and other activities/entertainment with the Hawaii Entertainment Book. Lots of discount coupons and a great selection, saving you a ton of money. From shopping and attractions to eating and other special deals, you’ll enjoy 50% off coupons and 2 for 1 deals – great bargains.
Learn about all of the fun FREE things there are to do on Maui. From soaking up the sun on the beach to driving the Road to Hana or hiking; driving to Tedeschi Winery, where you’ll experience stunning views, boogie boarding, or taking hula lessons (or a free hula show); there are plenty of fun activities and enjoyment on Maui to be had without spending a dime. Again, take time before your trip to research all of the no-cost things your family can enjoy!
You can have a blast on vacation without emptying out your pockets, and all it takes is some pre-planning. Considering the hundreds or even thousands of dollars you’ll be saving with our suggestions, you’ll definitely want to check out our Maui condo rentals and the special deals we have throughout the year!
