Hawaii Rental Car Prepaid rates explained.
A general consensus about prepaid rates is they're not a good thing because you're locked into a rate, if rates go down, you're faced with cancellation or change penalties. While I agree with that to an extent, prepaid rates when booked at the right time, are a huge money saving vehicle (pun intended), even if your dates are way in the future. We have wonderful prepaid rates on Minivans & Wranglers & Suv's. Fill out our form for your quote.

When is prepaying for your Rental Car in Hawaii a good idea?
During high season & busy rental periods in Hawaii. Prepaying works great in January, February, July & August, and of course over the Christmas holidays (normally 12/17 to 12/31). They are great during popular events like the Merrie Monarch Festival on the Big Island, The Ironman Triathlon on the Big Island and Halloween on Maui. Check out the Halloween video I shot on Front Street in Lahaina, Maui, it's quite the party on Maui!

TIP, We often have excellent prepaid rates saving folks up-words of 50% on specialty vehicles like Convertibles, Minivans & Midsize SUVs. If you are renting one of these vehicles, it's worth checking with us anytime of year. Please ask us to check prepaid rates for these vehicles anytime the rates are high.

When are prepaid rates a bad idea?
Normally, during what I call "Car wars" every year come April and May. Finding rates under a $100wk, plus tax, is the norm for us. Also, when your itinerary is not quite firm, and air is not booked, that is a recipe for itinerary changes. Changes often equal penalties, you will often get dinged even more making changes within 3 business days of the pickup date, so know your odds.. Like anything there are pro's and con's. With good planning you can come out way ahead.
