Airfare to Hawaii: how to save


Based on 2012 fare records, the best time to buy a ticket (non-holiday) is 49 days prior to your departure for Hawaii. Buying a ticket 200 days ahead is as costly as last minute fares. Christmas, Thanksgiving and high season (winter) expect to pay more so start shopping early. Want to know which day to buy your ticket: Tuesday afternoon since domestic sales launch late Monday and are then matched by rivals. We like Kayak.com for their comparison and trend data and Hawaiian Airlines aloha spirit, always a happy ride across the Pacific.
