Submitted by Visit Plus on Fri, 09/02/2022 - 20:35

Have you ever been on vacation in Hawaii? This is a very popular holiday destination among Americans. There are many people who return to Hawaii again and again. In our opinion, every US travel enthusiast should visit Hawaii at least once.

After the cautious years of the COVID-19 pandemic, our desire to travel has only intensified. Let's get ready for our next trip!

Tourists spend an average of $250-$300 a day while on vacation in Hawaii. A seven-day trip to Hawaii can cost roughly $2,000 for a solo traveler or $3,000 for a couple. But these are indicative prices. You can reduce the cost a little if you're frugal, or multiply it if you can afford it.


There were 528 thousand visitors to O‘ahu in July 2023.

We checked how much round trip flights to Oahu from Los Angeles cost. The cheapest direct flight from Los Angeles airport (LAX) to Honolulu airport (HNL) and back was in February 2024 in our study. This is an Alaska Airlines flight and the cost was $202. In general, the cost of such a flight varies in different months and days and can start from 200-300 US dollars.

You can get from Honolulu Airport to many places by bus.
Bus line 20 connects the airport to Pearlridge Center, Downtown Honolulu, Ala Moana Center, and Waikiki. There are also other bus routes.
Skyline, the light metro system will serve Honolulu Airport from September 2025. ( Daniel K. Inouye International Airport station.)

It is very convenient to rent a car for the duration of your vacation in Hawaii.
🚗 Renting a car at Honolulu Airport for November 2023 was offered at a price of $58 per day. (The price was valid at the time of preparation of the article and may change.)

Big Island

The Big Island (The island of Hawaii) is not the most visited island of the archipelago. There were 171,9 thousand visitors to Hawai‘i Island in July 2023.

The cost of traveling to the Big Island, like other islands, is highly dependent on the season. The highest prices are when most of us have the opportunity to travel, during holidays and long weekends.

Flights at the end of December from Los Angeles to Kona International Airport cost more than 400 US dollars. This is the price for the cheapest round trip we could find.

Prices at the end of December are quite high because this is the time of the Christmas break.

Flights in other months are much cheaper. For example, a round-trip flight on the route Los Angeles - Hawaii Island for December 2024 could be bought at a price of 205 US dollars. (Flighted by Hawaiian Airlines.)

We recommend.
5 star hotel Four Seasons Resort Hualalai (5 stars). Four Seasons Resort Hualalai is located on the island of Hawaii, the Kona coast (next to Kohala). The hotel has swimming pools, restaurants and a golf course. This is one of the best hotels on the island.
