For a while now, I was conversing with a guy from the U.K. about traveling to Hawaii and whether or not Expedia could offer cheap prices. He would say, “Hey Bruce, can Expedia get me a good deal on my hotel?” “Can they get me a good deal on my airfare?” “Can they find me a cheap rental car too?” By the end of it, I felt like I was an Expedia employee! Finally I said to the guy, “You know, Hawaii Aloha can get you all of this too, and probably for an even better deal.” He was shocked! He didn’t know we could plan vacations for folks outside of the United States. He thought we only could do business with American citizens, and that anything outside of this country was either too expensive to book or too out of our realm of business. He was happily surprised to discover that instead of using an online travel agency (OTA), he could just book everything directly through me.

So I’m here today to tell you, Hawaii Aloha Travel can save people money worldwide. It doesn’t matter what country you’re traveling from, we have the deals and connections to make it affordable for you. And on top of that, you’ll receive personalized service that you simply can’t get from OTA’s. No long telephone waits, no automated messages, no spiels. And if you have a Skype account, we can do business face-to-face, without the long distance phone charges! No other OTA offers this type of close interaction with their clients, and they also can’t offer the discounts we can. This is because we’re located right in Hawaii, at the source, and networked statewide, in order to find the best deals for the best prices. And we beat the big online companies like Expedia, Priceline, and Travelocity all the time.

But just because we’re in Hawaii, this doesn’t mean we only work within the United States. Our clients range from Europe to Japan to South America and beyond, and we’ve been successful every time. What makes booking a Hawaii vacation through us so appealing for a foreigner is our one-on-one contact that you can trust. We won’t tack on any hidden fees and we won’t keep extra charges a secret. Our business with clients is completely transparent, and this is a huge plus for clients booking from out of country. It’s peace of mind knowing that you’re in good hands with good people. And that’s exactly what we’ve founded Hawaii Aloha Travel on. Honest business.

Recently there has been a buzz about the inflated hotel prices that travelers are seeing. When hotel rooms used to go for $100 a night, they’re now up to $180 a night, and you can’t find anything lower, no matter how much online shopping you do. This is because the OTA’s are in cahoots with one other, driving up inflated hotel prices to ensure more money on their end. There has been talk that the hotels and resort companies are in on it too, but I beg to differ. Hotels sell rooms to OTA’s for a flat rate. It doesn’t matter which company it is, they sell them all for the same price. Which means it’s the OTA’s that are hiking the price up, not the hotels. You’ll be happy to know that we have direct contact with hotel wholesalers, which is why we can beat the competition and offer better prices.

While OTA’s are getting a flat rate, Hawaii Aloha Travel, a small, locally owned and operated travel company, is getting the better rates. And we’re not jacking up the prices either. We can save you money on your Hawaiian vacation, much more than Expedia can. And we can plan your trip from anywhere in the world, so don’t hesitate when you see that we’re located in Hawaii. This is our advantage, and you will soon find out why. No matter where you are in the world, we can design your ideal getaway to the islands, at a price you can afford. Completely within your budget, planning a holiday in Hawaii has never been easier for those living outside of the United States.
