1st Time Hawaii Visitors: Check car rental rates DAILY!

Most of us that make multiple trips to the islands already know this, but if you have a planned visit and are going to rent a car, keep checking the rental rates for your trip when you get within a couple of months. Rental car rates and promotions change, as does inventories.

Example: My 13 day rental for July was a constant $515 (mid size) on Costco and DHCR until the past two weeks. I watched it go down and stay around $425 for a week, then 2 days ago I checked and it was $327! I re-booked, checked again yesterday and today and it has moved back to $515 again. It's a game that can save you $$ if you stay on top of it. Last year, my best rate on Maui was booked 3 days before we arrived.

Thanks for the tip. I just checked my dates and saved over $100. Used DHCR for the first time and it was so easy. Will keep checking to see if I can do even better.

I had the same experience with DHCR for our trip last month--about 5-6 weeks before, the rates dropped by $150 for three weeks, then started dancing around daily--some rates for "only the driver", some rates with spouse-only as extra driver, etc., etc.
