For Angelenos, a tropical getaway to Hawaii is looking a lot more affordable thanks to a new promotion by Allegiant Air.
Allegiant is debuting nonstop jet service from Los Angeles to Honolulu starting Oct. 30. And to celebrate, they're offering tickets as low as $99 to travelers who book by July 14.
Now for the fine print: $99 tickets are one-way and are in limited supply. The last day to fly for $99 is Feb. 13, 2014. Other fees and restrictions could apply.
Savvy travelers already know that booking air fare to Hawaii during the off-season (from September on, excluding holidays) could save hundreds of dollars.
Even so, average roundtrip airfare from LA to Hawaii averaged up to $700 as of March 2011, which makes $99 tickets an eye-boggling opportunity for bargain travelers.
If you miss out on the $99 tickets, the next group of discounted tickets costs $150 -- still a great deal compared to average prices.
But if $150 is still too much to spend on a ticket to paradise, follow ice cream sandwich truck CoolHaus around LA Tuesday for a free Coconut Almond Cookie sandwich with Bananas Foster Ice Cream in celebration of the Allegiant flights. Catch them on Wilshire Boulevard from 1 - 2 p.m. and again on the corner of Ventura Boulevard and Radford Avenue from 3 - 5 p.m.
