I have a few friends from Hawaii and they tell me that airfare usually doubles in price around the holidays. If you can, go during “off” season. Would you be able to postpone your honeymoon? End of Feb/early March is a great time to go. Usually I can find affordable airfare / hotel around that time of year.

yes Hawaii is super expensive. And the trip is long! Check out at Lucia. It’s in the Carribean so the flight will be soooo much shorter for you. There are alot of all inclusives. And the island is supposed to be a lot like hawaii.

Proinceas:  Almost everywhere is more expensive around Christmas time, especially between Christmas and New Years. But for Hawaii, that’s also Whale Watching season, so it’s even more expensive. Add onto that that Hawaii is just expensive in general, and it adds up to end-of-December being really super expensive in Hawaii. Kauaii was gorgous and surprisingly affordable during October. If you really want to go for Christmas, then yes it will be that expensive. Your best bargains will be found between March or April and November.

Hawaii during Christmas is nearly DOUBLE the price of Hawaii during January.  Just something to consider.

Proinceas:  We had our honeymoon in Hawaii and stayed at condos rather than hotels. It will really slash the price.

Proinceas:  Unfortunately, you might be stuck with the high prices if you have to schedule around school breaks — spring break, Christmas break, etc all push up the prices of visiting Hawaii because that’s when all the families are going.

Maybe consider Costa Rica? It’s cheaper, will be closer to you, and has very similiar activities such as surfing and visiting volcanos (to name a few).

We didn’t go to Hawaii for our honeymoon, but when we go we stay in condos and it’s a lot cheaper. But Hawaii is expensive in general.

We’ve only been to Oahu. We had a condo over looking Diamond Head for a week in August and it was a little over a $1000. We probably spent about $2000 while we were there. We fly for free so didn’t have to worry about that. That is going to be an extremely long flight from London, where would you stop over at? We fly out of Atlanta and it’s a direct flight on Delta. I would also suggest renting a car. I would also try to go during the off season if you are set on Hawaii.

It will be less expensive in the spring if you avoid spring break in Canada and the US. Prices rise again during those time periods because demand is high.
