Tips for finding the cheapest flights to Hawaii
When to buy
Follow the “golden rule” to strategically book a flight to Hawaii: Book 40 to 50 days before your trip to lock in the best rates. Any farther in advance, and you might pay more. Closer to your date, rates could go up — with the exception of last-minute tickets that are often deeply discounted. The catch? You have to be flexible on your travel dates and times to catch these deals.
Avoid peak tourist seasons
“High time,” or peak season in Hawaii is usually June through August and mid-December thorough mid-January. For cheaper plane tickets and hotels, plan your trip for the “low seasons” in April to May and September to November.
Package your purchases
You’ll save if you bundle — vacation packages that include flights, transportation, accommodations and activities usually cost less than purchasing everything separately.
Check baggage fees
If you’re bringing checked baggage, look into what the airline charges before booking your flight. Budget airlines can end up being more expensive than luxury ones when you factor in baggage fees. Learn more about the best luggage options before you fly.
Catching a flight to paradise doesn’t have to cost an arm and a leg. Compare prices from leading airlines and plan your trip around the busiest times of year to get the best deals.
Once you’ve booked your flight, compare top hotels in Hawaii to lock in a place to stay.
