COVID-19 has changed our idea of what’s normal beyond what pretty much anyone could have imagined a year ago. One of the more unexpected repercussions of this invisible disease can be found in Hawaii, where a shortage of rental cars is giving tourists the idea that the best way to see its islands is from behind the wheel of a U-Haul moving truck.
That’s the word from Hawaii News Now and also reported by Carscoops. The Hawaii news site said that demand for the limited supply of rental cars on Maui drove the price of a Toyota Camry to over $700 a day in March.
The situation hasn’t improved in April, and prices are still high compared to pre-pandemic prices, so the next best thing, for some, is a rented moving van.
