How much does a one way flight to Hawaii cost?

Asked by NostalgicChills (2759 points ) December 29th, 2011

It would be for one adult, NOT in first class, from JFK airport in New York. And how much would it be approximately to move there? (Considering the costs for bringing my car there, and everything else)

You can get a NY to west coast fare for 200 to 250 if you shop. And you can get a one way seat on Alaska Air from Oakland or San Jose for $198 for certain periods.

I have no idea about car transport costs.

Expect at least a 20% increase over the mainland on everything you buy in Hawaii.

@zenvelo
That is A LOT less than I expected (except for the thing about a 20% increase)
Maybe this will all work out after all!

Figure $400 to $900 one way from JFK. They recommend shipping a car ONLY if it is low mileage and relatively new. ( Cost for shipping from Los Angeles or Oakland to Honolulu is about $1500 ).

Will not guess for household move. A few hundred to several tens of thousands.

Okay, thank you!
Is a 1995 Geo Prizm considered relatively new?

Not new, 2008 to 2012 would be new. A Geo Prizm in probably worth retail $1800 to $2200. So it would not be worth paying almost that much to ship from mainland ( NYC) to Hawaii. Buy something when you get there.
