Hi, my husband and I went to Maui on our honeymoon and were hoping to go back this year for our anniversary. We would be going the last week of May/first week of June and I cannot seem to find anything under $900 roundtrip. We would be leaving from the Atlanta airport. I was just wondering if anyone had any advice on how to find cheaper airline tickets or any websites for travel that you use that may be helpful. Thank you.

You didn't give dates so that's a week's vacation, ATL to OGG (Maui).

Have fun!

That is a published fare available at all the airline sites! you don't (and shouldn't) go to travelocity to book it...and she can do better by being flexible with airports.

I don't mind, it seemed the OP did spend time looking. And airfare changes often.

Actually, I posted today about my upcoming trip to ICN and asked for assistance...

I've been searching for about 2 months and feel lost.

So I'd be grateful if someone by chance had some free time, punched the codes/numbers on their favorite site and got some better numbers...

so I don't mind doing it for her. Actually, I have soldiers call on me alot to do this for them...they being overseas traveling last minute and not having access to internet (being able to spend some time in front of a pc) and the base travel office quotes them such and such...they know to call me- and I usually can get 30% lower than the base.

So I figure help out fellow travelers- If I have a free second, sure.

I found it for them, saved them over a hundred bucks a ticket...now they know where to go and get them. But I wouldn't for someone just vaguely asking, without having done any searching on their own.

Sorry, to clarify I am looking to go from May 29 to June 5th and I still can't find any lower than $900 roundtrip no matter how many sites I go on. Thanks for the advice, though. Oh, and also the only other airport closer to me is the Chattanooga regional airport. I am willing to go to Atlanta though in hopes of a better price since it is international and a whole lot bigger.

Bing will tell you if fares are rising, steady or falling. Looks like they predict fares from ATL to OGG to fall. Last time we went, there were some specials out of SFO so I booked 2 separate tickets - one from AUS to SFO and one from SFO to OGG.
