There are myriad people who look forward to driving their adventure jeep rental in Hana! The road to Hana is a wonderful trip itself, but once you arrive here, exploring the area can turn out to be quite the wonderful experience!

 

However, just like in any other situation, safety should always come first. Without too much further ado, here are out top tips to stay safe on the road as you drive your adventure jeep rental in Hana.

1. Don't forget to turn the A/C on in your adventure jeep rental in Hana

We know that the fresh air on Maui is great and all, but as you're driving, you may want to turn on the A/C. It's never OK to feel too hot as you drive to your destination. Aside from the fact that it's pretty damn uncomfortable, it can be dangerous.

 

Be careful though, not to set the temperature too low either. Make sure that, if it's hot outside, you don't set your A/C to freezing cold. Nothing can be more dangerous than getting out of the car, used to a cold temperature and be "hit" all of a sudden by 100°F.

2. Pay attention to the steering wheel or your car seats getting hot

Needless to say, but if your steering wheel or car seat are too hot, don't start driving right away. Wait a while before you can sit comfortably behind the wheel and can actually hold the steering wheel without 'burning' your hands.

 

If it helps, get a sunshade for your jeep rental and use it if you have to park the car under the hot sun.

3. Always check your mirrors for bikers and motorcycles on the road

One of the dangers of driving an adventure jeep rental in Hana in the summer is represented by those traveling on 2 wheels.

 

There are many people riding their motorcycles or bicycles here on the island. So, in order to avoid any unpleasant accidents, don't forget to check your mirrors every once in a while and watch for them.

4. Pay attention to... bugs

Does it sound odd that, to stay safe as you drive your adventure jeep rental in Hana, you need to watch out for bugs? Yeah, we get it.. But hear us out anyway.

 

Bugs have the tendency to fly all over the place and, often times, they may fly inside your car, through the open window! If that happens, the most important thing to keep in mind is not to panic! But of course, in order to avoid any freak accidents, maybe close the windows of you adventure jeep rental in Hana and avoid any nasty bug surprise.
