Best Time to Visit Hawaii

Welcome to the Hawaiian Islands in Spring 2008 Hooray, I won another time 10 points at Yahoo for 'Best Answer' in the Hawaii section! Well, big deal but to tell you the truth it's really quite interesting how many people are planning trips to the islands and are totally overwhelmed by the complex nature what it implies to prepare their Hawaii vacation.

Most of them already get stuck with the question 'Which Hawaiian Island to visit on first vacation in Hawaii', next seemingly hard to answer 'Should they book a hotel or a vacation rental in Hawaii' and again the most reoccurring question, at least in Hawaii Yahoo Answers over the time I have been answering questions about Hawaii vacation is 'When is the best time to visit Hawaii?'.

I noticed when coming across this favorite question 'When is the best time to travel to Hawaii?', it actually entails two parts, namely 'When is the best weather for a Hawaii vacation?' and equally important to Hawaii visitors 'When is the cheapest time to visit Hawaii?'. There are quite a number of misconceptions out there among Hawaii lovers who plan their first visit to the islands. Let's be as clear as possible and provide some straight forward information for ensuring your best Hawaii Vacation, at least what you can do on your part.

'When is the best weather for a Hawaii vacation?'

There is no denying Hawaii weather, which ever island, is generally very nice and warm all year around - exceptions can happen. Believe it or not, it can even rain in Hawaii, bigger probability is during winter months, but definitely beats ice, snow and frost on the Mainland! Summer months July and August can be very hot but if your are traveling to Hawaii with kids who still attend school, you really don't have much of a choice. You have to travel to the islands during school vacation!

'When is the cheapest time to visit Hawaii?'

Cheapest air travel tickets to Hawaii, Maui, Kauai, Big Island or Oahu, and car rentals on the islands are during Hawaii's low season months:
April - mid June (except Easter if it falls into April)
Sept - Nov (except Thanksgiving)
Plan your Hawaii for after Labor Day and you will be having an wonderful vacation in Hawaii at a decent price.

And don't let yourself fool...the winter months Dec - March are our high season, when Hawaii beaches + restaurants are crowded, air fares to Hawaii and car rentals are extremely expensive, vacation rentals and hotels are booked way ahead at high rates.

If you are not independently wealthy, best to stay away from a Hawaii Christmas Vacation, when hotels and resorts are booked in advance at 100% occupancy. Air fares to Maui Lihue Airport or Kona International Airport can take a big chunk out of your vacation money. Not to mention outrageous car rental fees during Hawaii vacation at Christmas. When you visit Hawaii, you visit an island, and a limited number of cars for rents are available.

After having read our entire post about best time for Hawaii travel and learned by now that the cheapest time to visit Hawaii is between April and May, it's time to book your Hawaii vacation rental for Spring 2008 now!

Good luck for finding your best rental deal! Aloha, Pua Hawaii Vacations
