We know a Maui vacation can cost a small fortune, and that many are interested in learning how they can have a great time without going over budget. Our first recommendation is that you choose one of our Maui condo rentals so you have a kitchen available and can avoid eating every meal out. You may not realize it, but eating out is a major expense! You can save a bundle by enjoying dinner out in the evenings, and preparing a packed lunch to take along during the day while you’re enjoying all of the fun activities and adventure.
Another way you can save is by traveling with other families or couples, depending on your situation. Lots of people travel in groups, which helps tremendously as you can split the costs of accommodations, car rental, even groceries. Imagine if you were to rent a condo that costs $400 per night and you split the cost with another couple or even two other couples; you’ll save a boatload of money!
If you intend to rent a car, choose one that gets super gas mileage. Gas is high in Hawaii, so go with economy instead of looks. Who cares what you’re driving? You’re in Maui to have a great time!
Use common sense and do your best to avoid getting injured. The last thing you want is a hospital bill, so be careful when engaging in any activities that could result in injury. Whether you’re hiking, surfing, kayaking, biking or enjoying other adventures, always be cautious.
Enjoy all of the things you can do for free on the island. Fun doesn’t have to cost money. Swimming, soaking up the sun on the beach, taking in a gorgeous sunset or sunrise, watching the whales, hiking, snorkeling – there are countless activities that don’t cost a dime.
Finding restaurants with lunch specials and other deals, visiting Maui during the off seasons when everything is cheaper, shopping craft fairs or swap meets for souvenirs; when you make an effort, you can literally save hundreds or even more on your vacation without sacrificing a great time.
If you’re planning on visiting the island in the coming months, be sure to book one of our Maui condo rentals now before they’re gone! We hope to see you soon.
