If you are travelling at high season, it's always best to be booking further away from the time of travel.
What to know before you fly to Hawaii?
Most major international flights to Hawaii will arrive at Honolulu International Airport (HNL) on the island of Oahu, which is the largest airline hub on the islands. From here, inter-island flights are generally around 30 minutes or less, and flights to Hawaii from Australia depart from most capital cities.
Any time is a good time of year to fly to Hawaii. In general, summer (June, July and August) tends to be drier than winter, which can bring showers.
Renowned for its warm hospitality, low crime rate and paradise feel, you can expect an easy-going time when you holiday here; however, there are still a few Hawaii travel tips to keep in mind. The general Hawaii travel advice relates to enjoying the natural beauty of the islands. Beaches can be subject to dangerous tides and rips, while the reefs so famous for snorkelling can present hazards of their own. The currency in Hawaii is the US dollar and tipping is very much a part of the (American) culture, with gratuities of around 15 to 20% of the bill often expected.
Airports in Hawaii
Most visitors to Hawaii enter via the island of Oahu, at Honolulu International Airport. Officially named the Daniel K Inouye International Airport, it services international and inter-island flights and is one of the busiest airports in the United States. The airport is located just 20 minutes from downtown Honolulu and Waikiki Beach, and is accessible by shuttle, taxi and public bus.
