You know that we love hearing from you. Maybe that’s part of why we have had tens of thousands of comments. And we try to answer most of them (hint: say please or thank you). Testimonials are new. While we won’t always remember to grab your comments and add them to the testimonials, below are just a few of those we receive. We’ve also started adding dates testimonials are added.
Aloha and Mahalo!
Rencha: So happy to find your site, the Discount Hawaii Car Rental tip is great. $100 cheaper than Costco or Kayak, who had hazy cancellation details. Will keep checking to see if I can score a deal, but I’m happy! Money saved can go to another excursion
Frank: We subscribed to BOH when we first started traveling to Maui and have gotten some great airfares with Hawaiian Airlines. We just booked a trip for January on HA at $284 per person R/T from Seattle. Mahalo. (9/18)
Douglas: Thanks so much for your extremely helpful, straightforward reply. (I just found it last night, hence my late response.) This removes a lot of uncertainty and worry. Now I shall monitor the fares for a few days, hoping for a midweek reduction, and then purchase. May you flourish! Aloha. (9/18)
Cindy: Hi! THANK YOU so much for your reply. I ended up booking a flight on September 10th. American Airlines had a sale out of the blue. Anyway, I paid $655 for round trip DCA to HNL. It does have one layover. I thought that was a good price during spring break. We purchased 3 tickets so we saved quite a bit. Thanks again… (9/18)
Bea: Mahalo for your amazing blog, I have actually found my last (super cheap) air dare deal s through your website and the alerts I had signed up for! Love it! (8/18)
Jenn: Mahalo for the advice! We booked last night and those flights went way up overnight. I think we got the last cheap seats for our dates. 😉 Yay! (7/18)
Bruce: Mahalo for posting the flash sale. It shows you that you ARE paying attention to comments made by your readers. I’m sure your inter-island travelers also appreciate your thoughtfulness. Keep up the good work. A grateful reader. (7/18)
Kristen: Thanks so much! You guys are the best! (7/18)
Julie: Mahalo for the email alerts! I purchased yesterday & got Minneapolis to Kona, $405 in August! Today, the same dates are $1100.. Beat of Hawaii is the best travel site for information to the islands!!! (7/18)
Valerie: Thank you for always keeping us in the loop!!!! I have been 1) waiting for the SWA news, but am always eager to snag a Hawaiian Airlines deal. Today with your sale announcement; booked SFO-OGG late August for a 3-day weekend get-away for $406.00 direct flights!!! Woo Hoo!!! Mahalo !!!!! (7/18)
Julianna: Thank you for previous posts that helped me in literally the eleventh hour! We missed a midnight flight and it was too late to see if our North Shore rental might take us another night. In a quandary, I remembered Beat of Hawaii recommended reasonably priced rooms at the Aqua/Aston chain. I called directly (as you recommended) and explained our situation to the agent who put us into a room for the night that was reasonably priced and also included a senior discount (AARP.) It saved us quite a bit over the pricing from Expedia/Travelocity etc. Big mahalos for your advice! (6/18)
DC: Thank you for your service. We were in Oahu last week and needed a rental car for two days. All the normal sites were saying $85 per day for economy cars plus taxes. I clicked on a link from your email and was taken to discountcarrental where I rented a car at HNL for a total of $113 for two days with taxes. Thank you! (5/18)
Rene: Again, thank you for taking the time to reply to so many people. Truly helpful. (4/18)

Barb: Thank you so much!! My sister & I are planning a trip there in Oct. We were able to get flights for the $181!! So excited about that. Now we just need to find a deal on an inter-island flight from The Big Island to Maui as we are spending time in both. So if you know of something please let me know. (4/18)
I LOVE your website! Thanks again, Barb (4/18)
Colin: Thanks for all the advice so far. I feel like I have been playing a game of poker the last few months but you have potentially already saved me upwards of $300 to go towards booking accommodation for the 6 of us which is my next challenge 🙂 Colin (England, UK) (4/18)
MJ: I found this site when I was looking for Hawaiian sweepstakes … still haven’t won that trip BUT I found your site which is more valuable.

I’ve passed it on to a coworker and she passed it on to her brother. (4/18)

This site is very appreciated! I’ll see you all in August for 2 weeks of Maui and Kauai to celebrate my wedding! Mahalo! (1/18)
Jim: This is a great website guys. I kind of stumbled on to it by accident. Wish i would have had access to it the last couple of years. Could have saved a lot of money. Keep up the good work and I’m passing this along to friends. (1/18)
TJ: Mahalo BOH for all you do to keep us up to date on the most economical fares….I’ve been following BOH since you began in 2008. When we’re traveling to Hawaii I follow BOH everyday in search of lower fares. Thank you so much for all you do! (1/18)
Heidi: Thank you so much! I booked it! We are extremely excited! I also noticed that some of the flights weren’t available for that price any more since when I first saw them there were a few at that price so I’m glad I booked tonight. Peace of mind. Now I can just plan the fun stuff.
Thanks again! (1/18)
Dan: Mahalo! Love your site and hope to get a lot of useful information. We have been to Hawaii and are planning on coming back in the near future. It is truly paradise, but expensive. So any great tips on saving money is greatly appreciated. (1/18)
Eric: I follow your blog religiously and make sure everyone I know is aware of it! (1/18)
Val: La Hau’oli!! Love what you guys do.
Scott: This site never fails!!! Been watching a very specific travel window for a few weeks. Prices have remained at a “default” high price. Saw this post and jumped over to Hawaiian Airlines. $297 RT LAX>HNL mid Feb. *Bows to the oracle*
Sheryl: Amazing price and connections! Great thing about Hawaiian is you can pay to put your fare on hold ($6.99 for a 3 day hold & $8.99 for 7 days), so I could act quickly to hold the fare, but take some time to plan & make sure it’ll work. I’ll be booking soon. Mahalo for your excellent website!
Jessica: Aloha! Wanted to thank you so so much for helping us secure our July SFO to Maui flights! We scored with $450 round trip including taxes. Really appreciate how informative this site is! Mahalo!
Gina: Yes!! Thank you for sharing great opportunities to win my dream vacation to Hawaii. Love your site!
Anastasia: So this morning I grabbed $163 one way on United from OGG to SFO on 7/9/18 (our return flight) for the 4 of us this morning, came in just under $650. A great deal! Thanks again all your great advice! Would definitely have missed this sale without your email alerts.
Chris: Thank You! We grabbed some from Minneapolis for $355 ea.
Elizabeth: I was able to get 6 tickets for January for $355 a ticket from Minneapolis to Honolulu! Checked today and the price for the same flights is $1036! Mahalo for sharing the information with us! It saved me a bundle!!
Tammy: Hi we just scored 3 ticks to HNL for $370 from Memphis on September 6th. We actually live in Atlanta but could not resist at these prices.
Alfred: Just a note to tell you That for the past 20+ years we have lived on the mainland and spent at least 10 weeks a year in Kauai. We continue to find “Beat of Hawaii” both informed and useful. A job well done!

Phil: (Just sharing my experience) You snooze you lose – got to reading my email alert from Beat Of Hawaii late, at 2:45 pm PST I priced SFO to OGG for 4/3-4/10 and got $382 which was a very good price specially considering that is spring break week, then at 3pm I refreshed and the fares jumped up to $573 – ARGGGH!!! Lesson learned and memo to self – do not delay in reading BOH alerts! Mahalo much BOH!
