How much will this cost?
After being a travel agent for many years I can tell you that prices for airline tickets range from around $500 to $1,800 per person. The price of your vacation/honeymoon all depends on the time of the year, the specials that the resorts are having, and how much you want to spend on activities. Your wedding is a separate issue and that is up to you too. Wedding packages range from $199 to the upper thousands. You need to find your range and then plan on spending twice that amount. I’m just being honest here…you can plan every last detail and still overspend by 20-30-40 percent.
A good rule of thumb is to decide on the number of days you want to spend in Hawaii and multiply that by 1,000. If you want a five day trip for two…count on spending around $5,000. Airfare, resort, activities, wedding, photos, AND food will be your biggest items.
You can get vacation package deals if you book you flights, hotel, and car rental all at the same time. If you would rather stay in a private home, then be sure to book your air and car together. It all adds up in the end, and careful planning can save a load of money.
