If you’re thinking about coming to Hawaii now is a really great time to start planning. Very often I recommend people do advance bookings because you can lock in a good package price and with our flexible terms we can keep an eye on the price; if it goes down we adjust your package price accordingly. This is great if you’re on a budget and want to get your trip paid off in smaller chunks. We’re also seeing some great getaway deals for the winter from the West Coast. For example, you could spend three nights on Oahu for only $589 per person and that includes round-trip air, accommodations, hotel taxes, and a free rental car on five night packages!!
Rod wanted to know where the best snorkeling beaches are on Kauai. One of my favorite spots is Ha’ena Beach Park on the north side of the island. You’ll find perfect conditions for snorkeling where you can see beautiful reefs and Hawaiian fishes. Another popular location is on the south side of the island in Poipu at Poipu Beach Park. Water is clear and you can see a lot of beautiful coral and plant life.
Terri one of our Facebook friends want to know where a good place to stay is on Maui. While it’s difficult to make suggestions without knowing all of her needs, most people stay on either the West side of the island in the Kaanapali area or the south side in the Wailea/Keihi of Maui. Both of these areas have pros and cons and we discuss those in today’s podcast.
Krista wanted to know if she should use a company like ours for airfare only if she’s traveling to Hawaii. She’s staying with friends and doesn’t need any hotel accommodations. You should always check with us to see if we have competitive rates, sometimes we can combine a car or a throwaway night in the hotel and still be cheaper than what you find in published air fare, so it always makes sense to check and see if we can be competitive. We work with a lot of suppliers and sometimes can grab air fares through our GDS system faster than consumers on the Internet.
