Our cost estimate of $8,969 for the average Hawaii trip is based on the following assumptions:
– You’re flying from Los Angeles, California, to Oahu, Honolulu – You are a family of four – You’re checking into a hotel – It’s a 7-day Hawaiian vacation – You will get a rental car – You’ll book at least two excursions
Here is a breakdown of the $8,969 estimated costs to visit Hawaii for seven days:
– Flight: $2,349 – Hotel: $1,652 – Car rental: $968 – Food: $2,100 – Activities: $1,900
Unless you live in Hawaii, you’ll have to take a flight to get there. If you’re planning a summer vacation, you’ll want to book as early as possible since airfare goes up for the summer months.
Believe it or not, it’s entirely possible to fly to Hawaii for all but free. (You still have to pay $5.60 for taxes per one-way ticket.) How is this possible? Take advantage of airline miles or credit card points to book your tickets.
Again, unless you have folks waiting to house you for your vacation in Hawaii, you’ll have to pay for lodging. We checked the lowest prices at several popular Hawaii hotels, and our estimate is $1,652 for seven days.
