Times sure are tough nowadays with soaring gas prices that have hit home and caused major shifts in the travel industry. It’s almost like everything that used to be included is now an extra charge. Pay an additional fee for bags, an additional fee for food in flight and an additional fuel surcharge fee and that’s just on the airlines at the start of your trip. No worries though, if you’re still the die hard Hawaii lover who’s planning on getting out to paradise no matter what but still wants to save a buck or two, then we got your back on some great deals and promotions.

You too can take advantage of the down slope in travel to Hawaii and take a staycation! Many local hotels are offering awesome Kama’aina rates so keep your eyes peeled and your ears open. Great place to check weekly is the Isle Hopping section of the Honolulu Star-Bulletin.
