|"Kama'aina rates are often times not the best rates you can receive..." This blog was published as an opinion article in the 04-22-12 edition of the Kaua'i Garden Island news titled;"Kama'aina get your discount." http://thegardenisland.com/news/opinion/mailbag/letters-for-sunday-april/article_f589817a-8c6a-11e1-a3e9-001a4bcf887a.html|
There are many rates better than kama'aina. There are many organizations that offer huge discounts such as AARP, Costco, AAA, and for those over 55 there is usually a senior discount available, and for those 12 and under many restaurants have huge savings. If you own a business or are a business person you may also be offered a business discount at times even lower than a Kama'aina rate.
Kama'aina may sound and have the feel of the best rate, but don't be embarrassed to ask for an even better rate. I am betting you'll be surprised.
