My husband and I will be traveling to Hawaii from the Midwest, in early April. This is a great expense for us, this may be the only time we are able to go, that is why we see squeezing in 3 islands. I hope the airport time doesn't take away too much of those island hopping days.
Any tips on surviving 10 hours on a plane would be greatly appreciated, also.
I am also wondering how much time it will take to get from Oahu to Kona, from check in to car pick up. How long before flight time should I get to the airport?
How long will it take to get my bags and rental car and be on the road?
I'm wanting to know the same info. when flying from Kona to Lihue from the Big Island.
We are flying into Oahu on a Tuesday, early afternoon. Doing Pearl Harbor half to 3/4 of Wed, and fly out at 12 for The Big Island. We will be there 3 nights and depart about 10:30 ish am, go thru Oahu of course, and arrive Lihue about 1:00pm on Sunday and depart 4 days later, in the late evening.
Any hints to make these transitions smooth and car pick on the Big Island and Kauai go smoothly are appreciated.
How much time will we have to enjoy Kauai on that last day, since we don't fly out until a couple of hours after dark?
