Budget Travel/travel


i live in the sw part of the country. what is best,cheapest,time of yr,etc to get to hawaii?  is it a certain airline or certain time of yr and its for 2 people. i am referring to air travel and dont need a hotel. thanks

Hawaii is a toughy because it's nice there pretty much year round.  The more expensive times are when the mainland is the harshest, so July to August is high season and Dec to Feb.  You can find good deals any time of year, especially if you search deal sites like Groupon and go to their travel section.  
I use Orbitz to find flights, i find they're just as good as kayak or anywhere else.
Hawaii is more event based when it comes to expensive flights.  For instance, in the "winter", the waves kick up and they have a lot of big surf competitions down there.  During that time, the flight cost will also increase.  
I suggest start with Groupon, then check Orbitz and use the "flexible travel" options to compare prices at different times of year.

I can tell people where to go and where to stay cheaply but still have the greatest experience of their lives. Specifically, I've backpacked in these areas: Australia, New Zealand, all over Europe, all over the US, Peru, Tanzania, Egypt, Thailand, Malaysia, Singapore, Japan, Cambodia, and a bit in Mexico. I can answer virtually any question in regards to traveling to these regions and having a lot of bang for your buck. I can also answer budget travel questions in general about hostels, airfairs, transportation and the like. I cannot answer specific questions about traveling to regions outside that list or questions about specific hostels which I have not stayed at.


Iíve traveled all over the world, been to 26 countries, 6 continents, and all 50 states. I was in Cairo in January 2011 during the protests and in Thailand during the Bangkok protests in 2008. I climbed Kilimanjaro and hiked the Inca Trail. I understand people, how to work and relate to them and how to solve problems and achieve end goals.
