If you are planning a trip to Hawaii, there are many things that need to be considered before going from the mainland to this tropical paradise. Funding, time spent, where to stay, and many other considerations are all part of the latest issue of need to make before you go on your tropical vacation. Here are a few tips on what you need to consider before embarking into paradise.
Trips to Hawaii are not cheap. That is, unless you get a package deal. If you're simply flying over and are intending on finding a place to stay, a car to rent, and doing a variety of activities, you easily spend $ 10,000 before your week is up. This is probably not a good way to budget your vacation.
If, however, you decide to be smart and plan ahead, at least a couple months in advance, you can save thousands of dollars in the following ways:
1 - Get a package deal. If you go to a travel website and you look up the price of an airline ticket to Hawaii, it will run about the $ 500- $ 600 range. Depending upon which website you are looking at, if you also look for a travel package which includes your airfare, hotel stay, and a rental car, you can sometimes get all of this for the same price but you would an airline ticket.
2 - Book for multiple guests. Here's another tip that will save you money. If you're going with someone else, typically you can stay in the same room. But what if you're bringing your family? Now you run the problem of having to rent multiple rooms. The solution to this is twofold.
First, you could rent several rooms from the same hotel. To get them at the same discount rate that you got one room for, order in multiples of two. Meaning, if you are bringing six people, book the package deal with two people in each room. This will allow you to get free rooms for every two guests for the price of the plane ticket.
Second, you can look for condos or homes that are being rented which allow you to house families for the price of one. This means you could bring 6 to 8 people and stay for the same cost that you would have to pay if you bought yourself in a guest.
3 - Book events as well. You will notice that when you were ordering your package that before you put in your credit card information, you can book several different activities at a discount. Use the same strategy here if you're bringing people, or a family of 10, make sure to choose these options now or else you will have to pay full price upon arrival at the Hawaiian islands.
Trips to Hawaii are going to be expensive, but they do not have to be excessively expensive if you know how to book package deals especially if you are bringing a family on a vacation to paradise. Choosing to purchase everything it wants will save you thousands of dollars by the end of your vacation and allow you to budget properly for the next one the following year.
