Airfare to Hawaii for November Honeymoon

Hi!!!

I am getting married in november and my fiancé and I have decided to go to Hawaii for our honeymoon. I have been checking flights from VA (where we live) to Oahu for past couple weeks and the lowest round trip ticket is $742 (United).. and it hasn't gone up or down.

My question is.. should I book now or should I wait? Is there any chance the price would go down????

Any suggestions or comments will be greatly appreciated.

Thanks!!!

RT of $742 from the East Coast sounds pretty good to me.

And where are you planning to go in Paradise and for how long? It's a great place for a honeymoon and we loved going there for ours, way back when.

The other think is even if it does go down some, locking in now to the flights you want is an advantage.

Sale prices for November probably won't pop up until mid-September. Are you willing to wait and wonder that long to save $80 per ticket?

On the other hand, tickets are non-refundable and have steep change fees, so make certain you have the dates that you want before you lock in your fare. You don't want that "oh gee, I just realized there's no way we'll make it to the airport for 8pm if the reception doesn't start until 3pm".

I like to use airfarewatchdog.com to check out price changes. Plus, you can check different airports.

buy now. Doubt if they will be going down! Gone up tremendously since February when DH and I went to the BI(although we bought our tickets many months before that. We are planning on going for a few days to Honolulu next January and it was $636 on United which was the cheapest from SFO. Get it done and off your plate. I agree that the fare you are quoted is pretty good from VA. Great place for a honeymoon. we have celebrated several anniversaries in hawaii
If you are a member of COSTCO, they haave a great travel program online(costco travel.com). we have used them several times for Hawaii and saved several hundred dollars each trip

Suggest you fly out the day after the wedding - so you are not rushing to make connections, etc. If you want to try and spend a little extra time in Paradise - consider taking a red eye flight home.
