Alaska Airlines has just announced daily nonstop service from San Jose and Oakland to Honolulu.

“With the increased service, Alaska Airlines now offers 35 flights a week from the Bay Area and Sacramento, Calif., to Hawaii. Since October 2007, Alaska Airlines’ service to Hawaii has grown to 22 daily flights from eight cities on the Mainland.”

With the recent summer fare sale and expanded service from Hawaiian Airlines, it will be interesting to see if Alaska follows suit with similar deals.

Car Rental Savings Tip

Looking for the best deal on a car rental for your Hawaiian islands vacation? Check out this company: I have used this site many times in my search for the best rate I could find. You fill out their online form, and no credit card is required in advance. They send you a confirmed reservation from one of the name brand car rental companies. I’ve checked the rates on other sites (including the rental companies’ own websites) and most of the time the rate they have provided me is far less. (On a recent strip to Maui over Spring Break, we saved hundreds!) On the rare occasion that you find a cheaper rate elsewhere, just cancel the original reservation — no cancellation fees or penalties whatsoever.
