Peak season

There’s no denying Hawaii is a tourist hot spot with millions of holidaymakers visiting there each year to enjoy its wonderful beaches and national parks. Of the six main islands: Hawaii, Maui, Molokai, Lanai, Oahu and Kauai, the most populous is Oahu and this is where flights to Hawaii touchdown in the capital of Honolulu.

Honolulu is where most first-time visitors choose to start exploring Hawaii with iconic Waikiki Beach, popular with sunbathers, divers, surfers and honeymooners from all over the world. The peak tourism season in Hawaii is from mid-December until mid-April, and when competition for cheap flights to Hawaii is high. Even though this coincides with the rainy season, the balmy temperatures around 27C / 28C attract visitors escaping the cold weather of the northern regions of the US. If you’re planning on booking a flight to Hawaii during this period, reservations need to be made well in advance as many hotels and resort get fully booked. Expect hikes in prices by airlines, tour and car rental companies too.


Off season

Hawaii doesn’t really have a low season but May, September, October, November (until the middle of the month) are quieter months when demand is slightly lower and you may pick up the cheap flights to Hawaii and discounted accommodation.
