We’re all concerned about travel costs these days, but that’s not going to stop us from our dream vacations. By planning ahead and making arrangements as early as possible travelers can still see some great discounts.
Vacation costs have gone up due to rising fuel costs and labor shortages, but if you know where to look, there are plenty of ways to save for your Hawaiian vacation. From flights to booking tours, being prepared and doing your homework often equals big travel savings.
You can find great deals by reserving flights, hotels, and car services in advance. However, you don’t need to book years in advance. Travel savings are mostly about finding the right travel windows. If you have the time, you can start monitoring flight prices 10 months in advance and get ready to book a flight 6 months in advance. If you don’t have that much time though the best flight deals are usually found 1 to 4 months before travel time. The best time to save on hotels is actually closer to travel dates though. Travelers often see up to a 13% discount when they book 15 days prior to traveling. You can also get good transportation deals by pre-arranging rideshare services. holoholo offers pre-arrange rideshare scheduling up to a year in advance.
You can also save by doing your research ahead of time and determining where you want to visit. Your time is limited and deciding where you want to go most is a great way to plan your trip and save. By booking an IMI Tour for instance you can see several sites on one trip. IMI’s Oahu Circle Tour for example offers stops at Green World Coffee Farms, Historic Haleiwa Town, Waimea Valley, Kualoa Beach Park, Byodo-In Temple, and Nu`uanu Pali. Find the right IMI Tour that checks off all of your travel boxes.
Booking your tour early is also a good way to lock in the best prices. Do your research, reserve your IMI Tour early, and make the most of your vacation.
