Do you have Hawaii on the list of possible vacation destinations this year? Then say aloha to a bunch of fare sales to one of our readers’ favorite vacation destinations!
Via Travel Codex, Alaska Airlines and Hawaiian Airlines have some great deals on flights to Hawaii from the West Coast for travel this spring!
Here are the details of each deal.
1. Alaska Airlines Fare Sale to Hawaii
Alaska Airlines is having a fare sale from select West Coast Cities to 4 Hawaiian islands!
Here are the sale’s terms:
- Book your airfare by 11:59 pm Pacific Time on March 1, 2018
- Valid for travel between April 16 and May 23, 2018
- Valid for Mondays through Thursday only
- If a nonstop flight is available, the sale applies to the nonstop flight only
The deals range in price from $179 to $339 one-way in coach. You can fly from:
- Los Angeles
- San Diego
- San Francisco
- San Jose
- And many more!
Because these are paid fares, Alaska Airlines Visa Signature® credit card cardholders will be able to use their annual companion certificate with this sale!
And even though the sale is supposed to only be valid for travel between April 16 and May 23, 2018, I found sale fares for dates as late as the first week of June!
2. Hawaiian Airlines Fare Sale
Hawaiian Airlines is discounting certain fares from Los Angeles to Hawaii.
You can get one-way fares from Los Angeles to:
- Lihue for $179
- Kona for $199
- Honolulu for $249
- Maui for $249
Here are the terms of the sale:
- Book your airfare by March 1, 2018
- Valid for travel Between April 11 and May 10, 2018
- Valid for travel between Mondays and Thursdays
- Fares are non-refundable
Getting to West Coast Departure Cities
If you don’t live on the West Coast, you can still take advantage of these deals. But you’ll have to find an affordable way to get to your departure city!
You can check out my posts on how to use Google Flights and ITA Matrix to find cheap fares to the West Coast. Or look for one of the frequent Southwest or JetBlue fare sales. Award flights for both airlines are tied to the cash price of the ticket, so fare sales are great way to save points, too!
If you have the Southwest Companion pass, you can book almost 2 for 1 travel to lots of West Coast destinations. And in 1+ years, you’ll be able to fly Southwest all the way to Hawaii!
If you book a sale flight, remember there are lots of ways to get cheap or free hotel rooms with points from credit card bonuses and spending.
Remember, you can transfer flexible points like Chase Ultimate Rewards or American Express Membership Rewards to different hotel programs.
Note: If you prefer to book paid stays, check out discount sites like Orbitz, Expedia, or TravelPony for deals. But remember you won’t get stay credits or points (and might not have your elite status recognized!).
Airbnb is another terrific way to save money on accommodations, especially for longer stays. Here are some tips on how to negotiate a better Airbnb price, and how to find a safe and comfortable Airbnb.
