Latest News

From the State of Hawai'i Safe Travels Hawai'i Program:

A 10-day mandatory quarantine will be required for trans-Pacific travelers arriving without a confirmed negative COVID-19 test taken within the 72 hours before departure of the final leg of their trip to Hawai‘i. Travelers will not be able to obtain a Nucleic Acid Amplification Test (NAAT) upon arrival at any Hawaiʻi airport.

Entry into Hawai‘i includes a pre-travel testing program, the Mandatory State of Hawai‘i Travel and Health Form, and temperature screening at all Hawai‘i airports upon arrival. 

The Covid-19 test must be taken at one of the State of Hawaii's trusted travel partners within 72-hours of arrival in Hawaii. Trans-Pacific travelers of all ages are subject to these requirements. 

Visit Go HawaiiSafe Travels Hawaii and the Hawaii State Department of Health for the latest detailed information.

TEMPORARY: On Kaua‘i, Effective January 5, 2021. 

Inter-island travelers who have been in the State of Hawaii for more than three days are eleigble to participate in the Safe Travels PreTravel Testing Program for quarantine exemptions.

Or, those traveling from outside of the state to Kaua‘i and choose to not stop on an outer island for 72 hours may participate in the county’s independent post-arrival resort bubble program. Travelers who take a pre-travel test, quarantine for three days on the “resort bubble” property, then take a post-travel test, will be released from quarantine with negative test results.

Booking Policy Update

Hawaii vacation rentals have been granted permission to fully resume operations under the State of Hawaii’s four-phase plan for recovery. 

Our goal is to allow travelers as much flexibility regarding rescheduling and cancellation as possible. With that in mind, we revised our Standard Cancellation Policy with flexible new terms that allow guests to reschedule or cancel their booking 60 days or more from their date of departure.

In this way, you can continue to plan your Hawaii vacation, but also respond to the evolving circumstances we’re all facing. Should continued travel disruptions occur, you’ll be allowed to reschedule or cancel your booking according to our new Emergency Cancellation Policy.

As a precaution, we recommend that all travelers protect their investment with the purchase of a travel insurance policy to cover flights to and from Hawaii. 

Please review the details of our Standard and Emergency Cancellation Policy here.
