Friday Family Vacation to Honolulu


We’ve written a lot about vacations to Hawaii, but most of our posts talk about going to Maui or Kauai. Let’s have a Friday Family Vacation to Honolulu where we can find cheaper hotels, often cheaper flights, and all the sun and fun that every Hawaiian beach offers.


Getting There

We’re flying our family of four from Los Angeles today. You could also position yourself there to start the same trip. Many airlines fly to Hawaii from LA, but today we’re going to pick one that most people wouldn’t even think about—British Airways (it’s on an American Airlines flight). 26K Avios + $11.20 in taxes for a round-trip flight to Hawaii is amazing!

American Express Membership Rewards, Capital One Venture Miles, and Chase Ultimate Rewards all transfer to British Airways, so there are several cards that you can use for this trip. You may need two cards to fund this trip. I encourage you to refer a spouse and grab a referral bonus, too.



The Hyatt Place Waikiki is a perfect choice for an affordable family vacation. At 15K Hyatt points/night for peak travel, just one welcome offer with the following cards will get you a four-night stay.

Another idea is to stay at the Hilton Hawaiian Village Waikiki Beach Resort and use Hilton points. This hotel runs 70K Hilton points/night.

You can get these cards for this stay:



Bottom Line

Hawaii is on almost everyone’s family bucket list. Friday Family Vacation to Honolulu shows you how to do it with points and miles—so, when are you going?
