You can book your flight, hotel and car rental all in one place on websites like Travelocity.com, orbitz.com, and expedia.com. You can save more money by booking everything all in one place and if you choose not to add a rental car, some places have shuttle packages that can take you right to your hotel. These travel booking sites offer hotel deals on rooms that are close to the beach, have their own swimming pools, and are within walking distance to amenities. You can even choose to stay at a Bed and Breakfast or rent your own place for a few days that’s close to the beach.
As mentioned above, you can either rent a car or take a package deal that offers transportation shuttles right to your hotel and then back to the airport. If you do take a shuttle, you can always stay at a hotel that is closer to the beach, or plan your suffering lessons where transportation is included. Hawaii also has public transportation that is cheap and affordable.
