The lowest prices tend to be available early in the week, particularly in late September and October. Given that the lowest fares will run you between 20,000 and 30,000 miles, we think it’s best to take advantage of these savings with cash instead. Some examples are below.

With new Southwest Hawaii routes available this summer, pricing for flights to the islands is extra competitive. (But be aware that Hawaii’s COVID-19 requirements could make travel cumbersome.)
