Maui Bicycle Tips - How Much Does it Cost to Ship a Bike to Maui?

One of the popular questions we answer about renting bikes on Maui is, "Does it cost less to rent a bike or should I ship my bike to Maui?" Renting a bike on Maui usually saves money, time and always avoids hassles associated with shipping a bike on an airline. Often, when customers return their bike rentals, they express being happy to have saved money renting a bicycle while appreciating extra to enjoy their vacation! Renting a bike on vacation avoids time needed to disassemble, package, and ship your bike before departing for Maui and the time to unpack and reassemble a bicycle after arrival. Renting a bike lets you ride longer because you won't need to repeat the process to ship your bike home after your bicycle vacation on Maui. Beyond time savings, renting a bike on Maui avoids typical high airline surcharge fees to ship a bike by air. We performed unscientific research to estimate the cost to ship a bike to Maui, including a container to ship your bike and the airline fees to ship a bike. Compare the total bike shipping costs to the cost of renting a bike on Maui. First, you'll need to get a container to ship your bike in, usually a cardboard bike box or a hard plastic rigid box. We found box prices between $34.95 for a standard bike shipping box to $99.95 for a heavy duty re-usuable bike shipping box. Add another $15. for the ground shipping of the bike box to mainland location. Bike box costs from shipbikes.com.

With the exception of Quantas and Singapore Airlines, major air carriers servicing Maui charge additional fees to ship your bicycle to Maui. We found typical 'air cargo' or 'sports equipment' shipping fees to range from $75 on Alaska Air up to $200 on United Airlines, each way! The airlines enforce maximum weight and container dimension limitations, including the box weight, adding further fees. For example, Hawaiian Air charges an additional $25. each way for 'excess weight fee' if your bike and box is over the 50 pound limit and below 70 pounds. The list below provides a list of of the major airlines servicing Hawaii along with their estimated ONE WAY cost to ship a bicycle to Maui. You'll also find airline carrier phone number and wherever possible a link to the bike shipping information page of the carrier's web sites to help you determine the current bike shipping prices and regulations:
