What is the Price for Two Round-Trip Airfare Tickets to Hawaii?

The price for round-trip airfare tickets to Hawaii depends on where you are flying from, and when you are flying, but here’s some averages.

Price from the West Coast (best prices from the west coast here): Generally $300 to $450 apiece for one round trip ticket in Winter and off-season, so for two tickets you would pay $600 to $900). Prices will go up to $500 to $650 ($1000 – $1300 for two tickets) in the summer and around holidays. (california, washington, maybe oregon)

Price to Hawaii from the central mainland U.S.: Tickets will start at $600 apiece generally in the winter and offseason and hopefully won’t go up past $750. In the summer and peak season you could pay as much as $850 to $1200. (illinois, wisconsin, texas, arizona)

Airline ticket prices from the east coast: Expect to pay $850 apiece as your cheapest price in the winter and the offseason. In July, if you book early, you may still be able to find some $850 rates, but if you don’t, you could pay $1500 easy. (new york, virginia, florida)

From Alaska: In the winter and offseason, tickets start at $800. In the summer and around holidays, early book prices will start around $1000.

From Canada: British Columbia in winter: around $700 to $800. British Columbia in summer and holidays: around $1000 and up. Quebec in winter and offseason: as low as $800 but more likely around $1000. In Summer and peak seasons. Prices start at $1000 and $1100 if you book early. More if you don’t.

From Japan: In Hawaii’s low season (september, october, december except around christmas, november, except around thanksgiving, January, february, april, and may(, you can find tickets for $750 or so. In the summer, prices can start at $900 apiece if you book early.

Gas prices will affect ticket prices. If gas is going crazy above $4 a gallon here in the U.S., prices will go way up.

Each airline will have the best price sometimes and the worst price sometimes. You want to use a fare compare agent like Expedia or kayak.com. (Or, check deals at Hawaiian – they have good ones).) That way, you can make one search and instantly see which flight will have the best prices and times for you.

There is no magic formula or magic day to search on to get the best prices. My suggestion is always to start searching as early as possible. Pick one fare compare site and see what the prices are. Check again later in the day. Check again the next day. Do this for a week and see if prices fluctuate. This way, if you see a good deal on a flight you will KNOW it’s a good deal.

The DAYS that you fly make a big difference someitmes. Try playing with different leaving and arriving dates – like if you are planning on leaving on a monday and returning on a sunday, see if coming back on monday or tuesday will make a big difference. Sometimes it really does.

(everybody wants to fly on the weekends it seems, so if you can buck that trend you may be rewarded with savings.)

When my husband and I flew from Hilo to Florida, roundtrip we paid $900 apiece. The flight stopped in Chicago after 8 hours and then we flew to florida. It was long.

I wish you an awesome flight and an amazing vacation. You can’t go wrong in Hawaii :) .

    Hello, I’ve been taking the advice from your website but cannot seem to find a decent price for a flight from lax to Ito (Hilo Hawaii) for July1 – July 30! My dates are flexible and I’ve been looking for the passed two weeks almost daily with no luck under $750. Should I just book now at $765 or do you think prices might get better if I wait? Thanks this is my first time purchasing tickets and would appreciate the advice!

    Hmmm, that’s a hard one. How are the prices from LAX to HNL? If they are significantly better just fly to Oahu and get a connecting flight. If not I don’t know … sorry!
