Rent-A-MINI

Well if you have been wondering where you can to rent a MINI when you make that trip away from home, well here is the answer!

It all started when Kenric Russell and his wife had an idea to change their lives a bit, move to Hawaii and start a MINI rental business (and why not!). Within 6 months they had sold everything in their house, hired a general manager to run their existing business, and moved to Hawaii with their two year old. "Everyone thought we were crazy, but since MINIs were our favorite car and no one was renting them on any of the Hawaiian islands, it made perfect sense to us." said Kenric. "We initially wanted to start with renting a restored ‘68/’69 Austin Mini and a new MINI cabrio, but ran into some insurance problems with renting a vehicle that was almost 40 years old. So instead we found a few investors and bought two new MINI convertibles and one hardtop with surf racks."

They locate their MINIS around town and manage the company from their home. When someone books a reservation either online or over the phone, the MINI is delivered straight to their hotel. The MINI arrives in detailed condition and includes unlimited mileage, a free copy of MC2 magazine, and a free fill-up service (not $5.25/gal like the other guys!). Their rates are $120/day and $720/week and offer military, AAA, USAA and Kama’aina (local) discounts, and frequently run specials which are updated on their blog.

A few weeks ago they also launched the MINI Cooper Rental Portal in order to assist fellow Motorists in finding MINI rentals anywhere around the world. This is a new site and additional listings are being added all the time

Now there is no excuse, just because your on a business or leisure trip away from home... you can still be driving a MINI! .. . and as an extra bonus murmini.com readers get an additional 20% discount - details here.

    $125 a day, a day!? That’s OK I’ll stick with the $35 special. As much as I love my MINI that seems a wast of money.
