Need to find a rental car, but everyone is "sold out"

Need to find a rental car, but everyone is "sold out"

I'll be in Maui for a week after Christmas through the New Year. I am trying to book a rental car right now but all of the major companies say they are "sold out." If I book it through one of the tour operators they have availability and then they book it through one of the majors but at a heavily inflated rate. Does anyone know any way around this? Or perhaps know of a good, local company or person that I can rent a car or small truck from for this period?

Aloha Kakou:

I was at Enterprise on Hana Highway this morning (picking up a replacement car while mine is at the dealer for service). I asked the manager about availablity at Christmas. He told me that, aside from being sold out for the entire Christmas period, they have 30 reservations booked for 12/26, all of which say the cars will be picked up at noon (the Hana Highway Enterprise office is open on Saturday from 9am to noon). He also mentioned that they are actually oversold for that day. So, even though they may show availablity, they may not have cars. And, if you show up at noon with the rest of the 30 reseravtions, be prepared to wait, assuming you get a car at all! The manager did suggest people try Kimo's car rental, just a couple of doors down on Hana Highway (kimosrentacar.com).

Off topic: Just a suggestion for the really long URL's. Try TinyURL.com. Easy to use and truncates the really long URL's into something more user friendly . Copy and paste the tiny URL into your post as a link.
