Travel on the Cheap: Say Aloha to Hot Hawaiian Deals

Hawaii is perfect for a tropical getaway that doesn't require too much effort, not even a passport. The island hasn't been known for its discounts, but occupancy concerns have caused hotels to start advertising themselves as cost-effective retreats. The Associated Press leis lays out the not-so-flowery situation: "Truth is, it's getting down right cheap to stay here with only two-thirds of hotel rooms booked."

Hotel-industry consultant Joseph Toy chimed in, "It's the steepest discounts we've seen since we started tracking the industry." Hotels large and small are offering unprecedented deals and incentives; you'll find major scores no matter your price range.

You can only afford to pay $90 a night? No problem, the Aston Maui Lu in West Maui will charge you $88 a night. Searching for a more-affordable luxury vacation? The Four Seasons Resort Hualalai on the Big Island will give you a $1,000 resort credit to be used for anything that can be charged to the room (minimum four night stay).

Will you be saying aloha any time soon?

i just went to the big island and oahu for 10 days (in april/may) and the flight was only $250 through united! all the hotels and car rentals were super cheap too.

i was talking to my mom about this the other day. we went to hawaii last year and it seems like we should have waited for the best deal ! my husband and i are trying to find a vacation for my b-day but i figure that the long plane ride really makes a 4 day weekend not worth it there. if only we were on the west coast - then it would make sense.

This has me seriously thinking. I also read something similar about vegas, though, and that's closer and cheaper. Either way, it's such a good time to travel right now.
