If you’re considering a visit to more than one island, it’s sometimes helpful to look at flight options to the other islands as well. Maui, in particular, has many direct connections to West Coast cities via Hawaiian Airlines.

General Tips for Cheap Airfare to Hawaii

Travel During Off-Peak Seasons or Times
Thinking of booking your summer vacation in Hawaii? Or escaping the cold winter to bask in the tropical sun? Chances are, many others have that in mind as well. Not to say that deals cannot be found during peak times, but if you can schedule your trip around slower periods of the year (avoiding the summer, spring break, and the holidays if possible) you might reap significant savings. Traveling during mid-week helps a bit as well.

Consider a Package Deal
Sometimes good deals on vacation packages can be found that will bundle your air travel, hotel accomodations, rental cars, and even inter-island travel if needed. While you may have less control over your choices, you will often pay less than buying each component separately.

Using Frequent Flyer Miles
Most airlines offer frequent flyer programs which can give you discounts on your travel to Hawaii. Although award tickets cost more than those within the Continental US, some airlines (including Hawaiian Airlines) offer the ability to purchase tickets one way and redeem airline miles the other if you don’t have enough mileage for a roundtrip ticket. You may also be able to use your miles or points for hotel stays, activities, or rental cars as well, giving you a little more wiggle room in your budget.

RTW or Circle Pacific tickets
Hawaii can be a great stop on a Round-the-World (RTW) ticket, linking the US with Asia and the Pacific. These multi-stop tickets often allow you to travel one way around the world at a discount. Circle Pacific tickets are similar, but allow you to travel in one direction around Asia, the Pacific, and Australia/New Zealand.

We hope you have a fantastic trip to Hawaii, and if you need more information for your vacation planning purposes be sure to read these travel stories about Hawaii and learn more about what to see and do in this Hawaii Travel Guide.
