Hawaii Myth vs. Fact

MYTH: If I book my own travel plans on-line, I will save money.
FACT: We will not only find you the lowest rates, but we also provide a whole lot more, like brochures on the islands with information on activities and sightseeing and restaurants. You also profit from our personal knowledge of Hawaii from over 20 years experience in planning trips to paradise.

MYTH: If I book my room direct with the hotel, I will get the lowest rate.
FACT: Although hotel web sites may state ‘Guaranteed best rate’, this applies to public internet site rates or published rates. We have special negotiated wholesale rates (that are not published on the internet) that are lower, or at least the same price, and by booking with Hawaiian Travel, you will receive our island brochures and personal knowledge of the islands.

MYTH: If I need it, I can get personal assistance from a knowledgeable agent at one of those big on-line retailers.
FACT: Chances of finding an agent that really ‘knows’ Hawaii and that can answer all of your questions is slim – the majority have never even stepped foot in Hawaii. Just ask yourself, is that the kind of ‘personal service’ I want?

MYTH: It is going to cost me more if I contact a travel agent for assistance.
FACT: In most cases, Hawaiian Travel does not charge a service fee for trip planning. Depending on how much trip information you ask for, and how detailed your trip plans become, we may either require an up-front deposit towards your trip, or charge a nominal planning fee.

So what do you have to lose by contacting us ?
Absolutely nothing! Contact us and provide us your trip information and let us show you why we have been one of the top Hawaii travel agencies for over 20 years. We don’t try to be a ‘jack of all trades’ and sell every destination there is – we have specialized in Hawaii only since 1988 – we are not an internet ‘newbee’.
