Airfare deals are typically only available on limited dates. We recommend you use Google Flights to find dates to fly, then book through an online travel agency such as Orbitz or Expedia, which allows you to cancel flights without penalty by 11pm Eastern Time within one day of booking. However, if you’re using The Platinum Card® from American Express, you’ll need to book directly with the airline or through the Amex Travel portal to get 5x MR points. Remember: Fares may disappear quickly, so book right away and take advantage of Orbitz or Expedia’s courtesy cancellation if you’re unable to get the time away from work or family.

Now's your time to plan a winter getaway or last minute summer vacation. Today we're seeing cheap flights from several West Coast cities, including Los Angeles (LAX), Seattle (SEA) and San Francisco (SFO) to the Hawaiian destinations of Honolulu (HNL), Kona (KOA), Lihue (LIH) and Maui (OGG). Fares start at $353 round-trip with solid availability from August 2018 through June 2019, depending on the route.

There are no tricks to find these fares. Use Google Flights to search for your preferred departure and destination and then book through Orbitz, Expedia or directly with the airline.
