How to book the cheapest flight to Hilo?
With Orbitz, you’ll find some of the most affordable flight deals around from a great range of airlines. But if you’d love to heighten your chances of picking up cheap flights to Hilo, here are some tips to keep in mind:

  • Depending on your place of departure, select the ‘Nearby airports’ function (located under the departure and arrival options). Oftentimes, other departure points offer more value for money.
  • If you’re flexible with your itinerary, click on the ‘Show flexible dates’ option. It’ll show the flight deals for the days before and after your selected departure. Airfares often vary depending on what day of the week it is.
  • To refine your results, click on ‘Show options.’ You can search based on seating class, airlines, and nonstop and refundable flights. You can also choose your preferred departure and arrival times under ‘Sort & Filter’ to the left.
  • Book your airfare as soon as you’ve worked out your travel dates. While it does happen from time to time, airline tickets rarely get cheaper as your date of departure gets closer.
  • Bundle your hotels, flights and car rental into a competitive package deal. Save your hard-earned dollars for things you’re really excited about, like exploring every corner of Hilo.
  • Don’t fly during the busy season if possible. By steering clear of summer and school vacations, you can save loads on your airfares.

What do I need for the flight to Hilo?
A long-haul flight can seem daunting, but it’s nothing a little preparation can’t fix. We’ve rounded up our top suggestions to make sure your trip is as smooth as possible:

  • You’ll need to present photo identification such as your passport. To avoid delays while checking in, make sure you book your tickets under the same name as your official ID. It’s good to have electronic copies of your travel documents too, just in case!
  • Bring a good book or a laptop crammed with your favorite films — it’ll help to while away time on your journey to Hilo. Or if you’d rather get some rest, an eye mask will block out those bright cabin lights.
  • Long-haul flights can get seriously cold, especially if you’re flying throughout the night. If you prefer not to stay awake shivering for the length of your journey, bring a warm layer and some wool socks.

  • Be more flexible with your travel dates and hold out for early bird or last-minute sales on business or first-class airfares.
  • Search for a low-cost airline that offers business-class seats. They often come with extra space and a glass of Champagne — but at a more affordable price.
  • Make a bid for an upgrade. Some airlines hold online auctions that let you put down a price for a seat at the front of the plane. You may also be able to upgrade with points earned through a flight loyalty program.
