    This is a really helpful blog for how to visit Hawaii when I do not have too much of cash in pocket. When you act like a local going to a new place, you automatically end up spending less. Also, taking public transport and all helps. I would love to include Hawaii in my plan soon; however, the flight price makes a big hole in the pocket, so I am still waiting.

      Thank you, Shreya. Flying to Hawaii is indeed costly but I hope you get the chance to visit soon

    Actually you’re right – as long as you buy fresh ingredients from the local market, cook yourself in your bnb, visit the not-so-expensive national parks and do things local do, there are ways to save money! The only expensive thing that’ll remain after this is the flight tickets, depending on where you’re flying from!

      Definitely, Medha! Yeah, unfortunately not too many things we can do to change the flight fare 🙂

    Great post and wished I had it before I went to Oahu in the summer. Gosh it sure is expensive over there and going in the height of summer certainly didn’t help. Coming from Australia, we didn’t find the food to expensive (it is so expensive at home so we’re used to it) but found the accommodation prices astronomical! I have to admit I was a bit put off with having to pay for entry fees for hikes. That’s something we’re not accustomed to. And Pearl Harbor….. almost unaffordable if you wanted to do the whole thing. BUT, we loved our holiday. Not island hoping sure helped with the budget so yes, I totally agree with that.

      Thank you, Amy. Indeed the accommodation prices are astronomical, especially during the high season.

    I am so so grateful to you for sharing this post! I really really really want to go to Hawaii as soon as possible but just finding it hard to save up the kinda cash to do it (and do it right). However your post is so in depth and informative that I believe it is now possible. Also your pictures are unreal!

    Very interesting post, I too would have assumed you were a millionaire when you say you visit Hawaii often lol. I tend to live like a local when I travel with the occasional splurge, so good to know about Tom’s Barefoot tours – I do like a bargain. Love firework displays too – is that Friday display a high season show or happens all year?

    I didn’t realize they had so many cheap food trucks in Honolulu, it seems you can make your own tour sampling different local foods from them! I liked your advice about doing things as a local, its definitely much cheaper and usually less crowded. Thanks for the great tips on how to save money while visiting Hawaii!

    Travelers often spend the most money on food and accommodation. You offer some fabulous suggestions on how to save on both. I particularly love the clipping coupons out of the paper option. That’s very clever and resourceful! When I travel I often only eat out once a day which is usually a late lunch that way I can save a lot of money. Bed and breakfasts are a great way to have a meal included in your stay!
