Maui & Lahaina Transportation Options

Getting to Hale Napili and deciding which Maui transportation options you will use while you are here is easy.

Airports/Airlines: The biggest transportation expense you will incur during your Maui vacation is the cost of airfare to get here. There are three airports on the island that each offer different options when it comes to getting to Maui. Read more about the airports on Maui.

Car Rentals: Many of our guests want to be able to explore the island on their own. Renting a car as you leave the airport is one of the best ways to do this. Sometimes airlines will offer deals if you book both your flight and car at the same time.

Mopeds/Scooter Rentals: Seeing the island from the back of a scooter or moped is like nothing else. You can smell the sweetness of the flowers and the salt in the air while the island sights are at your fingertips.

If you’re not already in possession of such a license, you will have to rent a moped, which travels at slower speeds.
