Hawaii: Here's some ways to save

Thinking of a trip to Hawaii this fall? The good news is the crowds will be gone, the kids will be back in school and the weather should be ideal.

The catch: Tourism is the one bright spot in Hawaii's economy. Economists from the University of Hawaii report that pent-up demand by U.S. travelers and more tourists from Canada, Australia, China and South Korea are expected to boost visitor arrivals by nearly 10 percent this year and another 3 percent in 2013.

That means higher airfares and hotel rates than in previous years. Still, with the weeks between Labor Day and mid-December being some of the slowest in Hawaii, travelers will find ways to save. See my tips in this week's Travel Wise column in The Seattle Times
