Is the extended Canadian winter keeping you down? Escape the snow with a trip to Hawaii this spring! Right now is one of the cheapest times for Canadians to fly to the island state, according to multiple sources.
Monica Wachman, a travel writer for Leaf Group, says that there are two specific times of the year when flights to Hawaii are the cheapest. The first is in the spring, from Easter to mid-June, when the islands are typically the least busy in terms of crowds and tourists. The second is in the late fall and early winter, from September through mid-December, right before the Christmas holiday.
Arthur Frommer, the founder of the Frommer's travel book, confirms those travel periods in his Hawaii guide: "The off-season, when the best rates are available and the islands are less crowded, is late spring (mid-April to early June) and fall (September to mid-December)."
Flight data from 2017 compiled by travel search engine KAYAK also shows a clear dip in median airfare to Honolulu from Canada and the U.S. during the month of April:
According to KAYAK, $543 or less is considered a good deal for a round trip Hawaii flight for Canadians. Such is a much cheaper price compared those offered in peak months like July ($604) and December ($755).
If you're lucky, you might even be able to find deals for less than $543. For example, within the last 48 hours, KAYAK was able to find flights from Toronto to Maui for just $443:
