Today I was featured in a MarketWatch article. Here’s the relevant section. See two posts below for a good day trip on Oahu. See right below for information on how I found those dirt cheap fares.

Hawaii

“I’m seeing incredible deals to Hawaii for the spring,” says travel writer Scott Grimmer of MileValue.com. The deals he’s talking about include round-trip airfare to Hawaii for about $400 from Los Angeles and $415 from New York (though these usually require flying on select weekdays). “Spring in Hawaii should be especially appealing to boomers because there are fewer crowds and fewer kids,” he says. Of course, some destinations in the islands can be expensive, but there are plenty of lower-priced options. Kihei, on Maui, has “incredible beaches,” is less expensive than other destinations on Maui due to “an accident of history,” Grimmer says. “The resorts were built in certain places, and those places became more expensive; Kihei was developed later, and the better deals remain.” Other good deals can be found on Kona and the Kohala Coast on the island of Hawaii. “Demand is depressed there because of the vog—volcanic fog—from the volcano that is been continuously erupting for decades”, Grimmer says. Most people barely notice the vog, he explains, but it can be an issue for people with asthma or sensitive respiratory systems.
