We highly recommend flying Hawaiian Airlines when booking your flights. Their rates are great, and it feels like the Islands from the minute you come aboard.
We recommend renting a car while on the Island as there is so much to explore.
Eight rental car companies are located at the airport. The car rental building is located on the walkway just past the end of the Baggage Claim area.
Car rental shuttles stop behind the car rental building.

All of the wedding festivities will take place around the Hyatt Regency on Ka'anapali Beach. If you prefer not to rent a vehicle- VIP Maui is an excellent shuttle service that will meet you at the airport and take you right to the resort.
If you wish to have private car service from the Maui (OGG) Airport, Aloha Maui Limo is a great company that will meet you in the airport and take you to the resort.
Uber is readily available all over the island.

In our opinion, the single best thing you can do on the island is spend a day on the Road to Hana.
To find excellent views of Maui's beautiful coastline, all you need to do is drive. The Road to Hana is a scenic highway (Highway 360) that twists through the lush rainforest and past the cascading waterfalls that line the island's eastern shore. Most people start their trip in Kahului (home to Maui's main airport) with the intention of motoring 55 miles to Hana. The trip isn't always easy: The route often surprises unfamiliar drivers with hairpin turns. Despite all the hype and mental preparation, travelers are regularly surprised by the drive's beauty.
The Road to Hana might seem short, but traveling it will most likely take all day given the number of scenic lookouts and other places to stop. Having done this, we highly recommend taking your time and stopping as often as possible, and also starting even before sunrise.
It is quite literally the most beautiful drive in the world filled with rainforests, waterfalls, black sand beaches, incredible hikes, lots of local eats, and indescribable views.
A tip is to get an audio guide to play in the car while you drive. It will not only give you the best places to stop but also it gives great commentary to everything you are seeing. We recommend the R2H guide- https://ther2h.com/buy#guide
For all of you early risers- there is nothing quite as spectacular as seeing the sunrise from the volcanic crater of Haleakala. You do need to make reservations ahead of time to gain access, but the cost is only $1.50 per vehicle.
