When is the best time to travel using cheap Hawaii deals, airfare in particular, and when should you book? The number one question we’re asked is “when is the cheapest time to fly to Hawaii.” Here’s our 2014 update.
Overall, Hawaii deals will be best for travel from mid-August through early December.
When to Travel
When to buy
This largely depends on your flexibility and how determined you are to take a Hawaii vacation. Sometimes the deal that is available now is the best option even if it isn’t the rock bottom price, rather than one that may or may not materialize later.
Hawaii deals for fall travel may begin to appear starting in summer, any time from June through September. That timing depends solely on whether airlines need help from lower airfares to fill their seats. If they believe they do need help, expect deals sooner. If demand is adequate, however, fall sales may not appear until September or even later.
We have our fishing net out to catch Hawaii deals for you and will reel them in and be the first to let you know when they appear.
What to pay
We expect to see round trip fall Hawaii airfares from many west coast departure cities to most of our island destinations priced from $450 to $600 including all taxes and fees. Midwest and east coast cities will usually run about $250 to $300 higher. It is sad to note these low season fares are up significantly compared to prior years.
Some cities have increased competition. Travelers using these gateways can expect to benefit most in terms of best pricing and greater availability. Those are San Jose, Oakland, Seattle, Bellingham, and San Diego.
