High Season Dates: Mid-December to Mid-April. This is a very popular time to travel to Maui. Prices are set at High Season Rates, and everywhere tends to sell out quick island-wide! The Holiday Season (Mid-December to Mid-January) is a prime time for Maui visitors, as everyone is looking to escape the cold of Winter, and opt to spend their Holiday in Maui. If you are looking to travel to Maui within the High Season Date range, it is always recommended to consider looking for accommodations well in advance, and booking at least 6-9 months, or even up to 12 months prior to your arrival date.
Even during High Season, there are still many great deals and special promotions available, you just need to know where to find them. Maui Hawaii Vacations will take the guess-work out of where to find the best Maui deals during any month of the year. We offer 1/2 off Weekly Rates all year round at the Westin Ka’anapali Ocean Resort Villas, discount car rentals, the best rates for Maui activities and various other promotions island-wide! Check with your Maui Specialist for the best bargains during your travel dates.
Low Season Dates: Mid-April to Mid December. Low Season is the time when rates are significantly lower and availability is much higher. Maui is generally less crowded, leaving many more options to choose from, without the rush of people flocking to the best Maui deals. Keep in mind that even though Spring Break & Summer (June-August) is during Low Season, it is the most popular time to travel to Maui during Low Season. It is best to begin planning well in advance if you are looking to spend your Spring Break or Summertime on Maui. If you are wanting to save money, Low Season is the ideal time to plan for your Maui Vacation, as visitors are more likely to get the best bargains on accommodations, car rentals, activities and flights.
