Once-in-a-decade Hawaii travel bargains predicted for 2009

Hawaii_beachI'm usually wary of passing along predictions for the new year. After all, did anyone last Jan. 5 foresee how we'd end 2008?

But here's news about Hawaii travel that's likely to put a smile on your face.

The savvy folks at the Best of Hawaii blog offers six predictions for 2009 travel to the 50th state. To sum it up in one word: bargains.

Expect once-in-a-decade deals through spring, they say. Of course, you need to be smart about when to go and when to buy. For example, summer deals will be hard to find.

And counter to most recent trends, waiting until the last second may really pay off in big savings. The predictions are based on a huge drop in visitation. Hawaii's eager for visitors and will cut prices to attract them. Don't be afraid to bargain once you're on the ground.

The Hawaii blog often highlights deals, so make sure to check there. But it's also worth surfing over to Airfare Watchdog, one of my favorite cheap ticket sites.

To put you in the mood, here's Bruddah Iz (Israel Kamakawiwo'ole), playing a classic.
