Are you excited for this Honolulu, Hawaii travel hacking and highlights?

Hi Day #7 of a favorite ????  travel image challenge. However, I decided to add a twist to the challenge, and I wanted to mention travel hacking strategies and highlights!

Like some of you, ✈  I wished I was better at travel hacking, and I decided to do some research to look for sweet spots, so I can reference it for future travel!

So, #SAVE this post if you want travel hacking strategies about Honolulu, Hawaii.

Just for background, I have been nominated by @jesslynn4686 for the 10 day favorite travel image challenge.

Every day I will post an image from my travel pictures that I love, without explanation, and nominate somebody to take the challenge.

That’s ????  days. 10 travel photos. 10 nominations. 0 explanations.

I will nominate another person every day.

Anyways, now moving on to the travel hacking strategies and highlights!

Here’s are the 5 highlights of things to do

1) Waikiki Beach

2) Hanauma Bay State Park

3) Dole Plantation Tour

4) Lanikai Beach

5) Diamond Head

Hotels: @hyattplace Waikiki Beach. Use @chase and transfer points at 12,000 per night.

Hostel: Use the @capitalone purchase eraser to wipe out the charge.

Airline: @turkishairlines and Smiles is the cheapest at 15,000 miles round-trip in economy (from anywhere in the lower 48 to Hawaii). However, you cannot book these rates online. You’ll have to either call Turkish Airlines at 800-874-8875, or send them an email.

@southwestair is a partner of @chase and points are worth 1.5 cents. Extremely helpful if you have companion pass.


Thank you @millionmilesecrets and @thepointsguy for the research!

Please note, ????  I have not stayed at every single accommodation and flew at every airline mentioned, but like many of you I want to save this in my back pocket when travel is safe again to book.

I’m tagging @rostrows212 and @k27goat for this post because we went to Hawaii for my birthday in October 2019. Please note, none of my friends are required to provide any travel hacking tips. I only provided them, so I can easily reference this post for a future trip!
