Nothing says paradise quite like the gentle crash of waves on the sea shore, so if you've been looking for an opportunity to settle down, sip a mojito and relax, we've got the deal for you. With nonstop flights from to Honolulu for under $300, there's simply no reason not to.

Note that many deals begin in basic economy, but the right credit card may help. For instance, the annual travel credit offered by the Chase Sapphire Reserve will cover up to $300 in travel-related expenses, including both bags and seat fees. The same is true of the up to $200 annual airline fee statement credit offered by the The Platinum Card® from American Express and The Business Platinum Card® from American Express if you're able to book on one of the airlines covered by the credit. Enrollment required.
