Book five months in advance to get savings of up to 15% on flight prices. If you book three months in advance, you can get savings of up to 8%. Booking four months in advance will let you save up to 7%.

You won’t have an issue finding the cheapest flights for the month if you book departure flights between the 3 and 13 of December but try to avoid flying out any time later as flights start to increase from mid-December onward.

There is a ton of flexibility for return flights throughout December with the entire month having a smattering of great prices. The cheapest days to return to Australia after Christmas are on 29 or 31 December.

After New Year’s Day, prices start to almost double in price but return flights from 9 January onward are reasonable.

Tips and tricks to getting cheap Christmas flights to Hawaii

Be in the know with these simple tricks and you could save yourself thousands.

  • Fly budget. Luckily, there are direct flights from Sydney and Melbourne to Honolulu for under $1,000 return on airlines such as Jetstar when you play your dates right. Direct flights on Qantas can cost $4,000 or more, depending on your dates.
  • Use top tools. Use tools offered by Skyscanner to search for the cheapest days to fly to and from Hawaii. Book your flights on the best days mentioned and you can save hundreds of dollars.
  • Fly weekdays. You’ll find the cheapest flights during the week as compared to the weekend. Though the difference in price isn’t drastic, it does make a difference and will mean flights aren’t as full.
  • Fly into Honolulu. You can fly direct from Australia to Honolulu, and it's served by budget airlines. If you're spending time on another Hawaiian island, it may be cheaper to book a separate ticket for your inter-island flight.
