Airfare deals are typically only available on limited dates. We recommend that you use Google Flights to find dates to fly, then book through an online travel agency, such as Orbitz, which allows you to cancel flights without penalty by 11pm Eastern Time within one day of booking. Remember: Fares may disappear quickly, so book right away and take advantage of Orbitz’s courtesy cancellation if you’re unable to travel.

It’s hard to beat yesterday’s $395 deal from select US cities to Honolulu, but for East Coasters, this fare is about as good as it gets. You can fly from New York City or Boston to Honolulu for less than $600 round-trip, or from Washington, D.C. or Philadelphia for just a bit more. The examples below are on American Airlines, but you might be able to find similar fares on Delta and United as well. These fares are available for departures in August through early December.
