Get Travel Time Estimates From...

So - you have your Maui rental car booked, but for vacation planning purposes, you still need to know how long it will take you to drive from one place to another.

Can you drive from Lahaina to the summit of Mount Haleakala AND drive the Road to Hana all in one day?

Can you fit in a drive to Iao Valley State park in the afternoon and still make it back to your resort in time for that luau you booked?

The travel time estimates here will make it fast and easy for you to get answers to those questions and more!

All estimates are for one-way travel only, so please don't forget to add time for the return trip!

Remember that driving times will vary depending on the time of day, but my listings below should give you a decent idea of what to expect.

If you are going to have to be somewhere at a precise time (ex. your snorkel tour departs from Maalaea harbour at precisely 6 am), then please confirm driving time estimates at your resort once you arrive in Maui - who knows? There might be road repairs being completed along your route that will slow you down - the most precise driving time estimates of all will be those that you get upon your arrival.
