I have never heard of them. I used Priceline and got a great car rental price.

I say stick with the majors, the little money you might save pales compared to not having the car there when you need it or having service available if the car breaks down.

We rented from Kihei RentaCar in May 2004. They are a local, family-owned company with cars that are a few years old. We rented a Jeep Wrangler from them. Because their cars are not brand new they allow you to drive them to places the other rental car companies will not allow you to go (all the way around the island on the road to Hana). The rates were reasonable and the folks who worked there were really nice. When we return we will rent from them again.

I almost used them last time I went to Maui, but then I found a link on hawaii.com for thrifty rent a car and found an even better deal for a jeep. The kid at the rental counter was amazed--we got an even better deal than the employee discount. We also used a little ma and pop rental place in Kihei the time before that. You can rent "island cars" which are 90's Nissans and similar older cars for super cheap. We drove ours on the road to Hana and never had a problem. They don't have air conditioning, but it wasn't an issue for us in November. Oh, and everyone drives their rental cars all the way around Hana and on the part of the road that is supposedly against rental car rules to drive on. It's totally safe and a problem free drive.

A quick note on rental cars not being allowed on certain roads: the fine print is "unimproved" roads, and the road around the island from Hana is ALWAYS being improved (new paved stretches, too).
