Car / Taxi / Bus, Oahu
The easiest way to get the lowest fare on the market is to contact a travel agent. They have access to all the info at once. If you call an individual airline they will give you their specific info and that’s it.
If you call a ticket agency that brokers tickets they may have lower fares on the same airlines and flights that a travel agent will have.You can find these places in the airline ticket agencys section of the phone book. A few are listed below with their phone numbers.
Fares have been known to change frequently so if you can not find a decent fare now, check back later. Warning! If you wait too long fares can and will go up close to the date of travel.
Here are some general fares we have found. These are just guidelines, not to be taken as specific quotes. The lowest fares are offered on flights that are not full up so the more flexible you are the better the chance you have of getting a better fare.

Their are other airlines that fly to Hawaii, but these are the least expensive at the moment. These fares were given to us directly. We called a travel agency that brokers tickets and they quoted us a ticket on Hawaiian Airlines for $350 rt. That is the same $530 rt ticket that was quoted to us from Hawaiian directly. It could be a good idea to do some research to find the lowest fares. Here are a few numbers to call for cheap fares (Keep in mind the tickets are not always cheaper).

Rent a car. The island is easy to navigate and has good roads all around the island. Unless you want to sit on Waikiki the whole time a car is the way to go.
