Hawaii or ? Vacation ideas wanted!

Postby Smiley on Sat Aug 02, 2014 5:54 pm

My boys and I really need to get away for awhile! We are free the last two weeks in August. I was thinking Hawaii. Is it a little cheaper then? Where is a good place to go and stay? What island is best? Do I need to rent a car? Who do you book through etc? We have never been so open to anything! Also thinking maybe visit a friend in Virginia. Lots to do around there.
Ideas and suggestions please and thank you!

It depends on what you consider "cheaper". Summer is peak season in Hawaii. You can get a deal as low 1300 each for 3 people for 2 weeks, including airfare.

If you are adventurous, you can check out sites like Travel Zoo, which do last minute deals.

I would not consider Hawaii to be cheap at any time. We went in August of 2012 and got a fairly good deal from Bellingham but it was still almost $6000 for the 5 of us and that was just for air and hotel. The US dollar is doing way better now than it was in 2012 so you won't get as much for your Canadian dollar. Also everything is really expensive there especially food. Because you are hoping to go in a couple of weeks, you may be able to get a last minute deal. We booked through a travel agent as I can never find the deals online that everyone else seems to get. But there are some legit travel websites out there. Just make sure you google any that are not well known to you so make sure there are no complaints against them.

I've never been to Hawaii but looks like a good choice. I have to wait for my kids to be old enough to travel as far as that.
