How to travel cheap to Hawaii

Trying to travel to the Aloha State on a budget? Here are some must-know tips to help you save while savoring paradise.

Time of year

Peak seasons in Hawaii are July and December, so avoid planning your trips during these months unless you want to pay top dollar.

Late January, February, September, October and November tend to be less busy and therefore cheaper times to travel to Hawaii.

Cheap flights

Plane tickets to Hawaii can be around $175 cheaper in January and February over other months. Hawaiian Airlines is known to offer some of the best flight deals from the mainland to the islands.

United Airlines, American Airlines and Alaska Airlines also offer flights to Hawaii. Take a look at our flight offers and deals to see if you can score an even cheaper ticket to paradise.

Money tips

Keep these money-saving tips in mind during your travels:

  • Stick to one island. You might be tempted to island hop to try to see it all during your stay, but the cost of interisland flights and ferries can quickly add up. Besides, there’s so much to do and see on all of the major islands. Sticking to one won’t disappoint.
  • Book activities ahead of time. Check for deals on tours, activities and admission on sites like Groupon before your trip to save a few bucks.
  • Take advantage of public transportation. If you’re sticking around one of the four islands that have a public bus service, you might not need to shell out extra dough for a rental car. Read our guide on how to get around Hawaii for more transportation tips and info.
  • Plan free activities. There’s plenty to explore around the islands, like visit the Pearl Harbor and USS Arizona Memorial, hike along beautiful trails, laze on one of the state’s amazing beaches or take part in seasonal events.

Accommodation

Oceanfront hotel rooms are dreamy, but they’re pricey too. To save, stay at one of the many hostels throughout the islands, or book a rental home or Airbnb.

If you prefer a hotel room, there are cheaper options that aren’t right on the beach. And many hotels offer cheaper rooms in September, October and November than other times of the year.

Oahu and Maui tend to be the most expensive islands to visit, while The Big Island and Kauai have more budget-friendly options.

What about last-minute travel?

If you have some wiggle room in your vacation plans, you could score some sweet last-minute travel deals to Hawaii. Check for cheap flights, hotels and rental cars on booking sites like Expedia.com and Orbitz, which are known to offer deep discounts on seats and rooms that haven’t been reserved yet.

Bottom line

Planning a once-in-a-lifetime trip to Hawaii doesn’t have to cost your life’s savings. Book activities in advance, plan during the off-season and be on the lookout for last-minute deals on flights, hotels, tours and more.
