The prices and details in this post are accurate only up to the point of the last update to this post (see time-stamps above). If this post is several days old, then there is a good chance that prices and availability have changed.
Virgin and Hawaiian Airlines have round-trip flights from Dallas (DAL) to Honolulu (HNL), Maui (OGG) and Kauai (LIH) starting at $478 with one or two connections. Dates available are very limited. Flights in January and February. See the Flight Details section of this post for example booking dates.
You may want to hit “REFRESH” on your browser one time, as this post has been updated several times since I originally posted it. Doing so should display the latest copy.
This fare wasn’t pricing on many booking sites, so you may want to check your dates on BookingBuddy to see if any of the other booking sites have better prices and available dates before finalizing your purchase.
Those of you familiar with this blog know the drill. Hawaii flash sales usually don’t last very long, so make use of the 24-hour free cancellation period to “Hold” your ticket before it sells out.
Orbitz and CheapTickets have a search tool that looks for flights 3-days before and after the dates you’ve selected, you should use it if you have a general idea of when you want to travel, but want to see other prices for other dates close to the ones you’ve selected.
To save the most money, be sure to apply the travel coupon codes available at the bottom of this post. Booking your trip as a flight + hotel package will probably save you more money than booking each separately. Package deals on Travelocity and Priceline tend to be better than what are offered directly by the airline, so be sure to compare them before booking.
Note: OTAs such as Orbitz and Priceline allow free cancellation without penalty before 10 PM central time the day after you purchase. As deals sell-out or expire quickly, this policy will allow you to “lock-in” the cheap fare while you sort out a plan. Just keep in mind that after 10 PM the next day, you will not be able to cancel without the regular penalty. On Orbitz, you can easily see if your ticket allows a free cancellation, just look for “FREE Cancel” next to the price of the ticket.
Most airlines also offer 24-hour free cancellation with varying policies. For example American Airlines allows you to “Hold” a ticket before payment for 24-hours but once you pay for it you can’t cancel without a change fee or penalty, even if it was purchased less than 24-hours ago.
