Why It's a Deal On a recent Kayak search, we found airfare between San Diego and Honolulu for $169, and return airfare between Maui's Kahului Airport and San Diego from $178 in early January. Inter-island airfare adds up to at least $259. Add that to $188 per person for a three-night stay at the Aston Waikiki Beachside Hotel, $186 for a three-night stay at the Aston Aloha, $230 for a three-night stay at Courtyard King Kamehameha's, and $266 per person for a three-night stay at the Aston Maui Lu, and you'd pay at least $1,476 for airfare and hotels alone if you booked independently. Plus, for $27 less, this deal offers the convenience of booking all of your flights and accommodations at once.
More Optional tours are available on each island, starting at $35 per person for a half-day Honolulu city tour that covers Pearl Harbor, the USS Arizona Memorial, and Punchbowl National Memorial Cemetery. You can upgrade to premium hotel packages from $80; add from $260 per person to upgrade to four-star hotels including the Marriott Waikiki Beach Resort and Spa, the Kauai Beach Resort, and the Royal Lahaina Resort.
