Question Budget on Maui?

Hi All,

Looking for a good BCD code / coupon for renting on Maui - any help is really appreciated.

Thanks much,

Suggest that you price the rental first using the car-rental link at http://islandair.com. There's no requirement that you be an Island Air passenger in order to take advantage of their car-rental discounts, which sometimes yield very good rates.

If it doesn't have to be with Budget, you can see what Hotwire is offering, or place a bid through Priceline.

Are you trying to rent during a peak-demand period?

Costco Travel

Booked thru Costco for current trip on Maui.
Was about $100 cheaper than all others, including Budget's website with other coupons or rate codes.
They even have a Costco priority lane if you prepay the reservation.
FYI: They do ask to see the Costco card when picking up the car in Maui
Good Luck and enjoy Maui

What does the priority Costco lane have that another lane doesn't?

Prices seems to be way up for me next winter, but X474200 got me a full size suv for 245/342. I am use to paying 198/280 for a full size car, and I prefer the suv, so not too bad.
