The pick-up was not the most efficient, with over eight people in line, and only two representatives at the desk. Otherwise, all good.

Prices are a little ridiculous right now, especially considering how much inventory was just sitting in the rental garage. Other than that, it was a good experience - clean car, easy pickup, and drop off was thankfully quick as I was running a bit late.

We thought we paid the full price to our vehicle online. When we arrived we still ended up paying over $800 more than we paid online. I knew there would be another fee for being under 25, but there were other rental fees and add ons. I could have gotten a cheaper car through another company while online shopping for a rental car but it was fine. Staff was very friendly, the guy who helped us out gave us ideas to do around the island and that was neat.

I had never used Sixt before and was a bit concerned. The experience was beyond expectation. We arrived in Maui and Sixt was close by with bright orange signs. You can't miss them. They have a modern office setup with covid precautions. Our car was ready, clean, and a full tank of gas. The Jeep Grand Cherokee ran great and had a 500 mile range on a full tank. Very impressive. The drop off was simple thanks to the orange sign. Again great location first drop off location. By the time we unloaded our luggage the sales assistant had done his checks and we signed off and walked to catch our flight. I would definitely use them again. We used enterprise on another island nad Sixt speed and customer service was a fantastic experience.

My flight to Maui was delayed more than 4 hours and lost more than half day schedules when arrived. But a friendly staff (Kandin) helped me quickly check out the car and even gave a promotion to next class car at the same cost! That was a nice and surprising gift at Maui! I will use Sixt again next time coming to Maui for family vacation.

The company did great! I had never driven in one of those cars so I didn't know how uncomfortable the seats were. Other than that I have no complaints, it really is just a matter of personal taste no one could read my mind or fortell that I wouldn't match with the car on that aspect.

Usually rent from more established companies like Hertz or Enterprise (previous sub par experiences with more economy brands), so was nervous to try Sixt. Ended up extremely impressed with experience at Kahului Airport (Maui). Very smooth pickup. Very modern office and friendly staff. Minivan was spotless. Would definitely rent from Sixt again without hesitation.

I reserved a Mercedes CLA class and was given an A220 which was about $80 more than the A class. I requested a refund from Sixt for the difference of the two classes. I was told no by an employee but referred to the manager Flo at the airport in Maui. Flo explained to me what apps like Kayak offer for the different classes of vehicles (FYI: don’t pay for a higher class if you pay for the lowered priced A class you may end up with a CLA) He gave me a credit for the difference & was very accommodating & friendly. Thank you Flo.

When I made my reservation they sent me a picture of A Dodge Durango when I got there they said they don't carry Dodge Durango's so they tried to give us this Ford flex after upgrading us $300 to a minivan which we found out they also didn't have when we got down to the car lot. The Ford flex wasn't big enough and then magically they had more minivans. It was a horrible experience picking up the car and then we found out the lady could be wheeled in dealed down so we ended up getting $100 off which made us feel like we were in Mexico or something. The whole thing was very ghetto and weird.
3.9 Mediocre16 Aug. 2021
Drop off was rather simple. They are at the airport. Other than that I was not impressed with the amount we paid for the rental car we received. They also NICKLE and DIME you. Every other place I personally have rented cars from (and I have not rented from them all, so this is not an all-inclusive point of view) My husband has been included in the driver cost. With Dollar, he was not and we would have had to pay extra each day for him to have the privilege of driving... we didn't do that because that is completely unnecessary. If I can help it I will not rent from Dollar again.

Great customer service. Wish I would have booked direct. Feel we payed way way way to much. Counter lady was pleasantly nice and direct. Car was not what we asked for but seemed like a nice upgrade. Don’t be fooled by price they show. Had an additional $800 for “taxes and fuel surcharge” 7 day rental car total was $2000. Ridiculous!!! Will do better research next time and not trust the hype of no rental cars. Book what you can! BS. Tons of cars. Don’t get taken to the bank like I did
10.0 Excellent26 Jul. 2021
The check in process was very thorough. My attendant double checked the dates I booked and I realized I made a mistake and booked one less day than I needed. It was no problem. They added the additional day and I had my pick of vehicles. Drop off was smooth and easy. I just pulled up, gave my keys to the attendant and I was off. They emailed me my receipt after they finished checking the vehicle in. A very easy process.

Great, easy check in and drop off. Quick customer service. Very pleased.They initially tried to get me to pay an extra $10/day to upgrade to an suv (they didn’t have enough cars and is reserved a car). I heard the guy next to me offer the customer the same upgrade free of charge. I had to say no multiple times and he finally (as if he was doing me a huge favor) and said he’d give me a free upgrade. Not a huge deal, but a little annoying.

VERY SLOW pickup process. Each customer is at the counter 10-15 minutes, spending most of the time finding off agressive up-selling attempts - car upgrades, gas options, and mostly insurance add-ons. They hide the option of declining supplemental insurance altogether. Forcing you to choose between three levels. They pepper you with scare tactics. This all takes a lot of time. The car itself, not the model promised. Reserved a Toyota RAV5, got a large SUV. Poorer gas mileage and difficulty parking in resort's small parking spots. Car condition was pretty poor - lots of dings and scratches. Which need to be carefully documented, requiring more time. Car ran fine. Go with the major rental companies. You'll likely be about to pickup your reserved vehicle with little or no time spent at the counter.

Did not have SUV and gave us a mini van that we did not like. When we drove to our condo the tire pressure light came on. We then noted a tire with a slow leak that had been pumped up for rental. We called to return the car and the person in duty found and reserved an SUV for us, which was good but we had to pay for the gas to return to airport to return van! As a courtesy, the person also gave us a 90 minute extension to return the vehicle but only noted it in the file, we were charged a $35 overage and had to stand in line at counter to ask someone to read notes and adjust, which was done, but was another hassle. We were also told it would be best to buy a tank of gas at 3.29 per gallon, but we are not told it came with $30+ of airport taxes which was ridiculous. We had to call and get that changed too. We filled up the tank which was almost empty on the SUV for $40 at Costco vs the $85 you tried to charge us. TAXES on tsnk of gas should be disclosed. In addition we were renting car from 4pm to 5pm return assuming there was a one hour grace period that is standard. When flight arrived early so we picked up car at 3:30pm, agent charged us for two additional hours without disclosing it. Lots of sneaky things we didn’t notice on contract until we read the print out on way home. People at Kahului we’re all very nice and fixed all we needed. It’s not them that appear to be wrong, it’s the company. We will rent from you again but will not take a van, will not take gas, and will look for system sneaking extra hours on the contract.

Car was clean.I reserved a "Ford Mustang Convertible or similar model not guaranteed." They had plenty of Mustangs but charged me $350 to "upgrade" to what I literally reserved, a Mustang.

But they found them and contacted me before id even had time to file a claim.I dislike the USB connection in the car (I know: a manufacturer’s problem).

They wanted to ensure we had enough room for us all, and upgraded us to a perfect sized SUV.They are off airport, but it was a quick $10 Lyft ride (about 10 minutes total), and unlike the on airport location(s) there was no waiting, and we were driving off 5 minutes after arriving at their lot. Worth the $ savings too - this is a 100% positive review!

The staff were professional.I got upgraded to a bad car. The black Buick Verona was too big for Hawaii's tight roads. The black interior was too hot. And I had to take it back in for a air bag check.

5.9 Okay30 Aug. 2021
The rental car started showing error messages and the check engine light a couple of days into the trip, so I stopped driving it immediately. I called the support number and the woman on the phone was nice but in a different time zone and confused about what rental places were open. They came out to tow the car but unfortunately I had to uber (they paid) back to the airport, which ate a couple of hours of precious vacation. I would have much preferred that they simply dropped off a new car.

I was a little concerned that they don't use the standard airport shuttle to get you to the rental office, but it worked out ok. There was no line like at the bigger agencies. There was only one person working so it's good that there were no lines. The car was brand new. Still had temporary plates. Overall, it was a very positive experience.

Staff was friendlyNo signage at the airport. You have to call their generic 1-877 number which is for all the ACE locations, and Maui isn't one of them! I only got their direct number because an airport worker who deals with unhappy ACE customers wondering how to contact the local office has their number memorized and gave me the number, else I would still be on hold with the nationa number. The office closes at 3:00 and if you drop it off after hours, there's no one sitting in the office (which is a closed Lexus dealership) to take you back to the airport. Eventually found a person sleeping (?) in the office who drove me in my same car back to the airport where I had dropped off the family. This business is really "Hawaiian Vans" DBA as "ACE Car Rental"

Staff was very helpful, even worked with me to make special arrangements to pick up vehicle off hours. easiest rental i have ever had!Nothing it was excellent service.
2.0 Mediocre7 Mar. 2021
Even though I rented the vehicle almost a year in advance, and a month before our trip they canceled me! I was horrified! I was told they were over booked. Come on cancel mine from that long ago? So, had to work with them to get another one, of which cost almost double. Was told we would be reimbursed the extra upon our return, but it was just the hassle of having to start over, when I know we were ousted because I had a good price from them so long ago and took it. We even had to rearrange our travel because they were only open 11:00-3:00. It was just a shame we were treated like that.
2.0 Mediocre7 Apr. 2020
I requested a refund and I still haven't received it. When I call Kayak, they tell me to contact Ace. When I call Ace, they tell me to call Kayak. The transparency and customer service is borderline fraudulent and should be reviewed by the BBB.

Car was fine and in good condition.Drop off and pick up are a bit of a hassle as it is off site. We booked a Jeep Grand Cherokee and there similar was a Hyundai which I think is miss leading.

Top tips for hiring a car in Kahului

  • Get the most out of your trip to Kahului with a hire car. Explore everything this scenic area has to offer, from the beach to the Twin Falls Maui Waterfall (about 19 miles from Kahului center) to the West Maui Forest Reserve. Discover the beauty of Maui nature with the comfort and flexibility a hire car can offer.
  • Kahului Airport is just under 4 miles from the city center and features a hire car center with eight companies represented, including Avis, Enterprise, Hertz, and Thrifty. The service center can be found at the end of the Baggage Claim Area, but shuttle buses from the terminals also operate and bring travelers to and from the hire center. Depending on where you stay, the drive into the city via Lanui Cir will take about 10 minutes.
  • The driving speed in Maui is generally lower than in most parts of the world, so lean back and enjoy a pleasant, relaxed, and hassle-free ride. Interstates and freeways are not common around Kahului and streets can be narrow, so drive at a moderate speed. Despite the stunning scenery, keep your eyes on the road, as deer and the occasional cow can cross at any given time, but especially at dusk and dawn.
  • Driving in Kahului is not recommended during 4 and 6 PM, as this is the general rush hour in Maui and many roads are narrow, meaning contraflow traffic can be a bit challenging. If possible, venture out in the mornings and return after 6 PM to avoid congestion. Kahului is renowned for its beautiful weather, but torrential rain showers can also occur -- it is not advisable to hit the road when it is pouring out.

  • Always adhere to the speed limits in Kahului, even if others do not, as the traffic law enforcement is pretty strict in Maui. Embrace the “aloha” driving style and relax your speed, as Hawaii is the state with the lowest maximum speed, allowing 55 mph on freeways and 25 mph in residential areas and when children are in the vicinity. Also look at the speed limit posted and adhere to it, or go slower if the road or weather conditions demand it.

  • The average refill in Kahului will cost about $3.35 per gallon, but petrol stations like Costco may offer up fuel as low as $3.09 per gallon. Shell is among one of the most expensive places to refill your tank and should be avoided if possible.

  • If your hotel does not have a parking lot, a good alternative is the P+R in the south of Kahului or the Kahului Park, where cars can be parked conveniently. Street parking is also an option, but usually only allowed for up to 60 minutes and not overnight, so opting for a hotel with a parking lot or using a public parking garage is preferable.
