Hawaii.com is an excellent source for planning your travel to Hawaii. We can help you price and book hotels. We offer exclusive rental car discounts. We have great deals on island-hopping packages. We provide insider tips on the best attractions, places to visit, and things to do.

We have help for the first timers and ideas for submerging into local culture for the return visitors.

First things first. Are you going to stay on one island or go island hopping? The six major Hawaiian Islands are Oʻahu, Maui, Kauaʻi, the Big Island of Hawaiʻi, Molokaʻi and Lānaʻi. Each island has its own personality, and you may not be able to choose just one.

Once you’ve chosen your island(s), it’s time to consider your accommodations. Are you looking for a luxury or mid-range resort, boutique hotel, or vacation rental? The luxury resorts here in Hawaiʻi are gorgeous and over the top, while many of the mid-range resorts have a more local feel to them. Boutique hotels are great for socializing, as they tend to be smaller and offer evening gatherings. Vacation rentals may not have the same amenities as hotels, but offer a great option for longer stays. Read more

After you’ve decided where you will be staying, you’ll need to think about how you will get around. To help with initial arrivals, many hotels offer airport shuttles. In terms of getting around the islands, your options are limited. Oʻahu is the only island with a good, reliable bus system. Rental cars are highly recommended for the other islands, as having a car will make travel a whole lot easier. And although Oʻahu does have an excellent bus system, TheBus does not service all parts of the island. Having a rental car on Oʻahu is still highly encouraged.Hawaii.com has a directory for activities on every island. Look for deals and exclusive offers! We do recommend booking some activities in advance, because this will save you money and allow you time to research. However, we also encourage you to leave some of your vacation days open. You’ll want a full day or two just for the beach. And you might find somewhere awesome once you’re here that you will want to spend extra time at.

Planning a wedding or looking to move to Hawaiʻi? We can help with that, too.
