Crazy fees and taxes.

For lately, yes, but it has been much cheaper on our previous trips. I think when we return for the few days before the cruise, we will just shuttle or uber from the airport and to the port.

True–cheap relative to the crazy rates that have been an issue this year.

Just checked Costco for car rentals. It’s only $65 cheaper and a smaller car. So, not a better deal. And w/ same agency too. I found out as I clicked though that I can pay more at Costco for the same car…

ya’ the costco site said HI was experiencing a shortage through Dec. I have one reserved through priceline right now. I’ll keep watching but a lot of the car rental agencies sold off their inventories during the lockdowns and are having trouble buying cars to restock. My DS had trouble buying a new car (bigger) in expectation of their first child.

Does anyone know if Aulani has DVC owner lockers for rent? I know you can do that at WDW. DH just informed me that he plans to snorkel every morning. We were going to go to the NEX and get snorkling gear. Since Aulani is our home resort and DH intends to visit once a year it would be nice to have a place to keep gear like that instead of carrying it in suitcases or purchasing each trip.

Car Rentals:

Advice to keep checking. I get emails if rates change and today was the first time I was able to save money; $300 less than my first reserved car.
