Hawaii Vacations & Hawaii Travel Just Got Cheaper - Opening up
Opportunities for the Student, Budget, & Backpacker Traveler
1000's of lodging options for $99 & under per night on the GLAD Travel website, inter-island air fares reduced in half, low car
rental rates, and a budget airline continuing the trend of low fares from the
mainland to Hawaii mean Hawaii has recently become a budget travel destination
for the long term.
Honolulu, HI (PRWEB) October 30, 2006
-- Hawaii is no longer just a luxury tourist destination. Several factors are
contributing to making it cheaper. A website
for budget Hawaii travel, lists
1200+ accommodation options throughout the islands all of which are $99
or less. Options include anything from quality vacation
condo rentals to hostels
that even have private kitchenettes. The introduction of a competitor (GO!) to inter-island
air flights has caused all three carriers to offer $39 one way flights
between any of the major Hawaiian islands. This is almost half what they used
to be before June 2006. Car
rentals have always been cheap, averaging around $25 per day. Several
major airline carriers routinely offer
specials on air flights from the mainland to Hawaii - $250-$300 from
California to Hawaii is becoming more commonplace than a one time offer, also
partially due to a budget airline (ATA Airlines) extending flights to Hawaii.
Doing the math, a exotic Hawaii vacation travel can now end up much cheaper than a
tour of a major US city like New York or San Francisco or more mainstream beach
locations like the Florida coast or southern California. This means students
and backpackers can now consider Hawaii as an adventure travel destination.
hopping in Hawaii, exploring
exotic beaches, and
eco-tourist activities should be way more appealing to a young
adventure traveler than buying a standard package deal to Mexico or Florida -
especially if Hawaii is the same price or lower," states Anitra Pickett, Chief Executive Officer of
Anitra advises budget
Hawaii travelers to do their research before booking a trip since this
can save hundreds or even thousands.
"You can travel to Hawaii for very cheap if you know where to look and just
ignore the travel agents and resorts that constantly tout how you have to pay
big money to visit the islands. There is now a great opportunity for a
cheap Hawaii vacation."
