Hawaiian Air bringing Tourists to Visit Hawaii

A survey by CheapAir.com found that the best time to buy a domestic flight anywhere is 49 days in advance of departure. If it is an international flight, the best time to book to save money is 81 days before.

For domestic flights you should definitely book a minimum of two-weeks prior, when the rates start to skyrocket. For international flights to HNL – Honolulu International Airport on Oahu, you might get a surprise and get the best fairs a day or two before travel! From Bangkok to Honolulu I found the best flight prices are typically about 3 days before departing.

When is a good time to visit Hawaii?

Everyday is a good day to visit the islands! Really, there is almost always decent weather and it is always warm enough. Some say the summers are too warm, and that is true for a lot of people. Personally, I like the October through February months because they are the perfect temperature night and day. The rain doesn’t bother me, it rains in the winters for longer times during the days, occasionally there will be a string of days where it rains a lot.

Hawaii had the most visitors EVER in 2016 – a record 8.9 million visitors.

Will you be booking a flight to Hawaii in 2013? It’s always fun to get started looking.

About the Author:

Moving to Hawaii was one of the most amazing moves ever. I strongly encourage you to consider it if you're in the financial position to make it work. Living in Hawaii has a fair bit of both positive and negative experiences awaiting each of us who give it a try. Read some of the articles here and try to get a feel for whether you might thrive in the islands. I wrote an entire book on the subject and it's usually less than $5. It's up there on the right side column. Best of luck and life to you! Aloha! - Vern L.
