With departure from Budapest, Skyteam airlines are currently offering incredible Business Class fares to Hawaii. Dates are available for the entire year of 2020 but we don’t know how long this will still be available because it looks almost too good to be true!
The fare is gone.
You can still book Business Class flights to other destinations in the US and Canada starting at €680 however.
This price is extremely low and we cannot guarantee that I won’t be cancelled. Therefore, we advice you to wait at least a few weeks before booking feeder flights and other non-refundable elements of your trip.
In the light of the novel Coronavirus we also advise against all bookings in the 1st half of 2020. We see plenty of availability in autumn, so there is no need to fly immediately. Please also note that the United States has currently banned the entry of all travellers who visited the Schengen area within the last 14 days.
BTW: Besides Honolulu, the fare is also available Lihue, Kahului and Kona. You have the choice between all the big islands on the Hawaiian archipelago.
Search & Book
We don’t expect this to last very long, so ACT FAST! We see availabliity for the entire year of 2020 without any blackout dates, minimum stay or other restrictions.
You can find your dates easily on Google Flights (instructions). You can then either go ahead and book with the cheapest OTA through our Travel-Dealz search or book directly with KLM or Air France. We would recommend the latter, here’s why:
Why is booking with an airline better than with an online travel agency?
More often than not, online travel agencies offer lower fares than airlines do. We still recommend booking with the airlines directly. There are three main reasons for that:
- The Covid-19 Pandemic
During the worldwide outbreak of Covid-19, planning international travel got more and more risky because of ever-changing restrictions. In contrast to many online travel agencies, most airlines modified their terms & conditions to become more customer friendly. Rebooking conditions are eased, change fees are waived and cancellations are much easier when there is no third party involved.
Further, by adding an OTA to your plans, you increase the risk of one service provider involved going bankrupt. Now, the airline and the online travel agency involved could vanish along with your money.
- Better Customer Service
In case any problems like delays, cancellations or missed connections arise, you can communicate directly with the airline. The airlines has to take care of you because you have a contract with them.
If a travel agency issues your ticket, you may have to reach out to them first. You also depend on your OTA to forward you information like flight changes instead receiving them directly from the airline. You may get a prime exhibition of responsibility shifting rather than problem solving.
This especially applies for premium tickets. You don’t want to spend more than €1,000 to wind up with some budget OTA’s telephone hotline in case anything goes wrong.
- Baggage Fees
Economy fares not including hold luggage are more and more common. In most cases, travel agencies charge much higher baggage fees than the airlines themselves. If bags are not included in your fare, airlines are often the cheaper alternative.
The tickets are issued in booking class D, which gives you a great amount of miles if you opt for the right program.
