Saying "Aloha" To Off-Season Savings In Hawaii (INFOGRAPHIC)

While many of us are still trying to keep summer alive, the cold months are coming and it's time to prepare for change. But don't fret, you don't have to wait another nine months to feel the sand between your toes: Hawaii stays warm and sunny year round, and you can get great value by planning a tropical vacation before the holiday season. According to recent research based on FlipKey traveler data, vacation rental prices in the Aloha State stay at their lowest from now until mid-December.

We're letting you in on this secret because Fall is a great time to escape to endless summer. The data shows that most travelers plan their Hawaiian getaways 11-13 weeks in advance, which means that there's still plenty of time to get a great deal on a rental home for Thanksgiving.

Want to know another secret: TripAdvisor data shows that a couple in Honolulu can save around $900 over the course of a 7-night stay by choosing a vacation rental instead of a hotel.
