Now that Halloween has come and gone, we have officially entered the holiday season. Weather you love it or dread it, we know that this can be a stressful time of year. Shopping and searching for the perfect gifts, hosting perfect parties and doing it all with ease can be tons of extra pressure that most of us just don’t need. This year, forego the stressful holiday non-sense and plan a well-deserved getaway to Hawaii instead. Here’s a how to guide for quick, low cost holiday getaway on the Big Island.

Be Flexible

Having a flexible schedule can save you big bucks. For some significant savings, having the flexibility to move your travel plans around by a day or two can help keep more green in your wallet. Even being willing to travel at different times throughout the day can save some cash. Sometimes taking that red-eye does pay. Play around with dates and times for your travel to see where you can shave off an unwanted expense.

Take a Different Airline

If you have a preferred airline that you tend to fly most of the time, it may be better to look outside of your comfort zone to do some comparison shopping. Airline tickets can vary greatly by carrier. So if you are looking to escape to paradise without spending a fortune, this may be the way to go. Who knows, you may find that a low cost carrier becomes your new favorite airline.

Stay with Kilauea Hospitality Group

We have some excellent lodging options to fit your budget. Nestled in the rainforest and located just a few minutes from Hawaii Volcanoes National Park. Our three properties make vacationing in Hawaii a beautiful experience without having to stretch your budget. Volcano Hale is super easy on the budget and offers basic rooms and amenities to guests.

Look for Discount Offers

Before booking your trip, look for the best deals and special offers available. Many hotels offer package discounts, last minute rates and even discounts for membership programs like AAA. We happily give AAA members a 10% discount off of their entire stay at any of our properties. We also offer AARP and senior rates to our guests.

Car Rental

Renting a car can also be a hefty expense. But once again, it just does not have to be. Check with your resort to see what rental car partnerships they have so you can take advantage of another great way to save some dough. Kilauea Hospitality Group has partnered with Dollar Rent A Car and Thrifty Rental Car to offer our guests the lowest rates on car rentals. Your holiday getaway just got better.

Your holiday getaway to our beautiful island doesn’t have to break the bank. With a little extra homework, you can enjoy that well-earned respite without having to kiss a pile of your hard-earned money goodbye. To us, that makes a very happy holiday season. See you soon.
