Foolproof Ways To Save Money On Your Next Trip To Maui

By Leslie Veliz


Three million tourists visit Maui annually, most of which visit during winter and summer. Visiting during these seasons means everything comes with a higher price tag.
Instead, travel in spring or fall, Maui's off-seasons. Temperatures are still in the 70s, crowds will be smaller, and the prices will be lower since there's less of a demand.
Skip tourist traps like luaus, snorkeling excursions, and farm tours, which can cost hundreds of dollars. Instead, enjoy many of Maui's budget-friendly attractions.
Maui Walking Tours offers free tours of Kihei and Wailuku, and many beaches are free to visit. If you have a rental car, driving the scenic 64-mile Road to Hana is a must.
Maui's beachside resorts are expensive. Instead, consider a hostel like the Aloha Surf Hostel, which is under $200 a night and has shared dorms and private rooms.
If you're on a tighter budget, you can camp on Maui. Wai'ānapanapa State Park offers cabin rentals for $100 per night, though you'll need to pack your own necessities.
