Traveling to Maui on a Budget

Maui, Hawaii
The island of Maui continuously tops the list of the Top 10 Islands in the world!  In fact, it has made the list 20 years in a row! With world famous beaches,  Mt. Hakleakala, Lahaina's Banyan Tree,  swimming with the turtles, The Road to Hana, and so many  more great activities, it's no wonder that it continues to be one of the top most visited islands in the world.  But that doesn't mean it has to come at a high price tag!  You can still take a trip to Maui while staying within a manageable budget, and without sacrificing any part of your trip!  Here are some tips for traveling to Maui on a budget:

Set a Budget
This may sound silly, but if you don't set a budget, you will have a more difficult time narrowing down your accommodations, which will be one of the biggest expenses of traveling to Hawaii.  It's also a good idea to set a budget for activities and excursions as these can add up.  Purchase snorkel gear at the nearby shops to save money and float on your own off shore.  Of course, use caution and stay within the safe areas.  If you stay in a vacation rental, they often stock the unit with snorkel gear, pool toys, beach chairs, etc.  That can be a great convenience and no cost to you!

Search for Budget Airlines
There are several budget airlines that fly directly to Hawaii from the mainland.  Often times these airlines only fly certain days and certain times, so if your schedule is a bit flexible, you can save several hundred dollars a flight!  Worth the savings if you ask us!

Travel off season
If you can, plan your trip a few weeks before or a few weeks after the busy season.  You will receive substantial savings!  Generally, the weather is the same too!  So you don't have to worry about going during the rainy season, just to save some money.  It's a win-win!

Stay in a vacation rental
There's a reason vacation rentals are SO popular all over the world, especially in Hawaii!  It's because they save everyone money. If you search a hotel accommodation in Maui you are looking at upwards of $600 a night, depending on what season you go in and where you stay.  You can rent a Maui vacation rental starting at just $71.00 a night.  And that's for a 1 bedroom unit,  fully equipped with a kitchen and living area!  So much more space than a hotel room.  Plus, the kitchen allows you to save money by preparing some meals in, and storing snacks and beverages for your stay!  Don't worry though, just because you are paying less, doesn't mean you sacrifice the resort-like atmosphere. Take a look at this awesome Maui vacation rental that rents for $84-$165 a night and is located in an oceanfront resort with three pools, tennis courts, volleyball courts, barbecues, and more.
Another great option is this fantastic Lahaina vacation condo with some of the best views around!  Wouldn't you love to wake up to this view? This condo is in a beautiful oceanfront resort and starts at just $140 a night.
