DESTINATION PLANNING TIPS

  • Do you have a passport? If not, never fear. U.S. citizens can still bask in the warm aloha of Hawaii’s palm-fringed sands, savor Puerto Rico’s historic Latin flavor, or discover the three distinct personalities of the U.S. Virgin Islands.

  • How far do you want to travel? Your dream vacation might be closer than you think! From PDX, fly to Mexico in just 3 hours, Canada in 2 hours, Hawaii in 6 hours, Tahiti in 10 hours, and Fiji in 12.5 hours. From JFK, fly to Canada in just 2.5 hours, the Caribbean in 3 hours, Mexico in 4 hours, and Venice in 9 hours.

  • Are you looking for an active vacation or a slower pace? Active vacationers should look to the bustling city destinations of Europe, Dubai, and Australia, or the eco-tourism opportunities in Costa Rica and Canada. To unwind in serenity, try the pristine tranquility of Fiji, Tahiti, or Maldives. And for the best of both worlds, look no further than Hawaii, the Caribbean, or Mexico.

  • What time of year will you be traveling? For spring travel, try the Caribbean, Costa Rica, Hawaii, Mexico, or the Indian Ocean for excellent weather. Summertime or early fall? We suggest Fiji, Tahiti, Hawaii, Italy, France, London, and Greece. Wondering about winter? Mexico, the Indian Ocean, or Australia (where it will be summer) are excellent options to escape the cold.

  • What’s your price point? Unforgettable vacations are available in just about any price range. For vacations under $5000, save on airfare: East Coast travelers should consider the Caribbean, Mexico, or even Austria, while Hawaii, Mexico, or Costa Rica are perfect for West Coast travelers. For exceptional experiences in the $8000 to $10,000 range, explore Tahiti, Fiji, Maldives, Berlin, Hungary, or Greece, or upgrade your hotel for an outstanding five-star experience. Your world of opportunities awaits!

You’ll see why the special moments of your trip to Hawai‘i become even more memorable when you share
them together.
