How To Support Local Businesses

Our warm invitation to experience the beauty of Maui this winter

The good people at Hawaii Vacation Guide recently produced an informative video detailing six effective methods for bolstering our local economy. Maui is currently open for visitors, with the exception of Lahaina. In their video, they delve into the following six strategies, affectionately known as the “six S’s”:

Skyward Sojourn – Hawaiian Airlines

Hawaiian Airlines, a homegrown carrier headquartered in Honolulu with a storied history in Hawaii dating back to 1929, beckons with enticing winter fare deals. Travelers can secure fares as low as $99 for flights between Kahului and Los Angeles from January 22, 2024, to February 1, 2024, for the main cabin basic fare.

Spin Around in Style – Local Car Rentals
