If you’re considering a winter trip to Hawaii, then now’s the time to start looking at flights.
Flight site Hopper recently told Travel + Leisure that October is the cheapest time of the year to fly to Hawaii. The average price of flights during the month is $511 for economy seats. The second cheapest time of the years to fly to the state, November, has flights for an average of $604 for a roundtrip ticket. January is also a good time to go. The average cost of flights then is $617.
By in large, Hopper suggests booking your flights at least a month out and potentially tracking prices prior to that.
While you can still get a decent price for a flight a month out, things like hotels need to be booked three months in advance to get the best deal. So now’s the time to start thinking about that December hotel room.
And regardless of what airline you choose to physically get to Hawaii, you might want to consider looking at Southwest once you’re there. The airline offers $49 fares between some of the islands, so you can island-hop without breaking the bank in the process.
