Colorado residents can fly from Denver to Maui for just $341 round trip. (The following flights were priced as listed at the time of publication. We cannot guarantee these round-trip flights will be available when you book.)
To find this deal, head to Southwest’s website and browse its low-fare calendar. You’ll notice that one of the cheapest trip options is from Sept. 4 to Sept. 14.
These tickets are for the airline’s Wanna Get Away fare, which includes two checked bags (perfect for this 10-day itinerary) and no change fees. Know, though, that there is a layover in each direction.
Alaska is also offering deals to Hawaii today but only from Los Angeles. Nonstop flights in September start at $119 each way.
These tickets are for Alaska’s Saver fare, which allows one carry-on bag but does not include seat selection. You’ll only earn a 50% credit if you cancel this fare up to 13 days before departure, unlike Southwest’s option, which lets basic fare passengers receive full credit as long as they cancel 10 minutes before departure.
