Iolani Palace – Honolulu Hawaii

You may not be aware that there is a royal palace in the United States.   Iolani Palace – now a museum once housed Hawaii’s kings and queens.  Have you been?  If not – get inspired via our video.

Iolani Palace was the residence of the royal families from the former Kingdom of Hawaii starting with Kamehameha III (1845) and ending with Queen Lili’uokalani (1893).

The palace has been renovated and is open to the public. Located in Honolulu, this royal palace is now a museum and is open year-round Monday – Saturday from 9 am to 4 pm.  You can take a self-guided tour via headsets.  We recommend you purchase tickets in advance during the busy tourist seasons. I’ve been to many palaces around the world and I have to say that the decor in this palace is a bit more laid back and more my style – while still being elegant.

Give your Hawaii obsessed travel agent a call to book your next vacation.

Save Money on Hawaii Trips by Using a Travel Agent

It’s a new year and many have you have a goal to get back to Hawaii this year.  It’s no secret that I’m a travel agent.  I live and breathe for travel and Hawaii is my passion.  Did you know that you can save money on Hawaii trips by using a travel agent?

save money on hawaii travel

With this age of searching online, you may think you know all of the tricks, but I’m here to tell you otherwise.  By using a trusted travel agent, these are some ways we can save you money and how we work.

Some travel agents charge a planning service fee. I don’t charge a service fee if I am making a commission on the products I sell you.  So if it’s just flights you are wanting, yes I will charge you a small fee, but if the flights are combined with anything else, my services are free.

  • Did you know that often you can save money on your flights if I book your flights with a rental car?  Yesterday I booked 5 people from Salt Lake City to Honolulu. They only needed flights as they had booked a cruise themselves. But they were spending 3 days prior to the cruise with family in Oahu.  I added a minivan for the 3 days prior to the cruise and saved them over $300 even with the car added.  How is this done?  I packaged the airfare with a car and then was able to get them “bulk airfare” – which is usually discounted airfare when combined as a package.  This works on many flight/car combos around the world – not just on flights to Hawaii. Many of my clients don’t even pick up the rental. When I add a few nights of hotel or a few days of car rental with the flights, this is what constitutes a package.
  • Travel agents have multiple suppliers to draw upon.  Since we have many suppliers, we also have access to special coupons and promotions that you don’t know about.  I keep a list so the current specials and compare prices when quoting my clients a package to make sure I’m getting them the best value.
  • Travel agents are your advocate.  What does this mean for you?  It means that if you have any issues while traveling we become your advocate and do our best to resolve any issues.
  • Travel agents have good relationships with suppliers.  This helps you out in that sometimes we can get little extras for our clients that you can’t get on your own.

Ready to travel?  Call your favorite travel agent and see if they can help you.
