    Have any of you happened to use these websites to plan your trip.

    Just last week i searched for Ala Moana hotel with next Aprils dates of travel, and it was 1300 per person with 10 day stay and roundtrip. just 5 days later and it went up 600 dollars! what in the world?

      I can't totally help but we called Hawaiian Air and worked out a wedding wings discount (it's only 5%) but if we had 40 people book through our wedding wings we got a free upgrade (only one way).

      For accommodations we rented someone's estate and there's a bunch of us staying there who will split the cost. It was cheaper for us to do it separately so I suggest looking into both separately and together so see what's cheaper for you.

      April is a low peak month so there's no way you should be paying premium prices. I'd also advise that best time to purchase flights seems to be right after the new year (well the first 2 weeks of Jan or maybe just the first week). This is just what I experienced this year and last year. You should be able to get great (low) prices for the month of April. Good Luck.

        Try clearing your cookies and revisiting the site or using a different computer. These sites remember that you've looked at that trip before, and when you come back, their sale price magically disappears. Of course, the actual price may have increased as well.

          Maureen is right if you are booking for a group, the prices will definitely go up..
          But if you are looking for just yourself, try the other discount sites and see if you can find it cheaper again if you are ready to book soon - kayak.com is pretty good and lets you compare it to other sites - priceline, expedia, hotels.com.
          Some of my guests just booked on hotels.com and saved a lot of money by booking a package with them...

            Check out Pleasant Holidays website - they offer good package deals and their customer service deserves bragging rights. =)
