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.
Hawaii is a fantastic destination, but traveling between the various islands within the state can get pricey. That’s where this Hawaiian Airlines 90th anniversary deal comes in: Inter-island flights are under $100 round-trip between any neighboring islands. Prices are listed at $90, in honor of the airline’s 90th birthday, for all neighboring island flights, but we’re seeing some for cheaper at $84 round-trip. Book today for travel between Jan. 7 and March 6, 2020. Pair this deal with your flights booked from previous Hawaii fare sales from the mainland to save money for special excursions on site.
To search, head to Google Flights and enter your origin and destination cities. Scroll through the calendar function to find dates and prices that work for you. Finally, click through to book directly with the airline or through an OTA like Priceline or Expedia. But move quickly: This deal is only good through the end of today, Nov. 11.
