Hawaii and California

Discover more of Hawaii and California

California is one of the USA’s most lovable states, home to iconic destinations like San Francisco, Los Angeles, Yosemite National Park, San Diego and so many more, but what is also amazing about California is that it makes for the perfect destination to begin and end your Hawaii holiday!

Charter Travel work with the best airline partners in the industry: Virgin Atlantic, United Airlines, American Airlines, British Airways and Delta Airlines, and offer flights from many UK airports including Glasgow, Manchester, London Airports, and select other regional airports, which allows us to tailor your holiday to your specific needs. Though, because there are no direct routes to Hawaii when booking your Hawaii holiday, we must include a stop or layover in another state in America. California is one we highly recommend for your Hawaii stop/ layover as it gives you the opportunity to make your Hawaii holiday into a Twin Centre holiday that includes some of America’s most iconic cities. Our Travel Specialists are experts in all-things Hawaii / California and can advise on when the best time to travel is, what to do whilst in Hawaii / California, where to stay in Hawaii / California and create your perfect holiday that fits your budget. Our Travel Specialists can advise on car hire, fly drive holidays, hotels, activities, budget requirements, and source the cheapest flights and accommodation for your booking.

Hawaii and San Francisco holidays will allow you to fly directly to San Francisco with one of our partner airlines and explore the city for as long or as little as you like. Staying for 3 days in San Francisco is an excellent length of time that will allow you to explore the cities top landmarks and feel like you have experienced a fast pace, city break before jetting off to Hawaii for the ultimate relaxation and/or adventure holiday. In San Francisco you will have the opportunity to drive or bike over the Golden Gate Bridge, visit the iconic prison Alcatraz in the middle of the bay, see the pretty Painted Ladies on a San Francisco tour, ride a cable car through the city, visit the magnificent Muir Woods to see California’s infamous redwood trees and spend some time in Fisherman’s Wharf enjoying the amazing ambience that makes San Francisco so distinctly different from any other California city. There are so many accommodation options, from the incredible Argonaut Hotel at Fisherman’s Wharf, the 4* Hilton hotel at Union Square, or the quirky Hotel Zephyr at Fisherman’s wharf. Talking to your Travel Advisor is the best way to book the hotel that is right for you! After seeing what the city has to offer, you’ll jet off to Hawaii! Hawaii consists of many islands but those most visited are Kauai, Oahu, Maui, and The Big Island…you might even be heading off for an island-hopping adventure in Hawaii – something our Travel Specialists can organise for you and, if you have the time, we highly recommend as each Hawaiian Island has its own personality and adventures to offer!

Hawaii and Los Angeles holidays are another great California and Hawaii option for those looking to see California’s most famous city where you can shop till you drop on Rodeo Drive, take a stroll down the iconic Venice Beach, drive out to Malibu for some incredible sushi in NOBU or relaxing on the golden sand beaches, hike the Hollywood hill or see the famous sign from below, and even spend the day at Disneyland California or Universal Studios Hollywood! Los Angeles offers so many amazing hotel options: from the incredible Beverly Wilshire Four Seasons hotel, the excellently located for Universal Studios Hilton Los Angeles - Universal City, and the 5* Waldorf Astoria Beverly Hills for that VIP/ Celebrity treatment! Talking to your Travel Advisor is the best way to book the hotel that is in the best location, and the best price, for what you want to do whilst in Los Angeles. After experiencing all LA has to offer, you’ll fly off to Hawaii where you can relax on the beautiful white sand beaches and swim in the crystal-clear blue waters!

Though slightly less common, another fabulous option for your California Layover is a San Diego and Hawaii holiday! Whilst in San Diego a must-do activity is visiting the infamous San Diego Zoo: the zoo is a non-profit wildlife sanctuary home to over 3500 rare and endangered animals. A day at the San Diego Zoo is perfect for families and couples alike and will offer you the chance to see animals up-close that you may have never even seen or heard of before! The San Diego Zoo also offers the chance for guests to experience being a ‘keeper’ for the day, or to gain early admission and see the zoo before it opens to the public for the day! These activities are in high demand so booking them with your expert Charter Travel, Travel Advisor beforehand is essential. San Diego is a city that offers charm and history, without the same busyness you might experience in Los Angeles or San Francisco, so is perfect for those looking for a calmer start to their Hawaii holiday. San Diego also has amazing hotel options: Hotel del Coronado is a San Diego landmark dating back to 1888 that has hosted celebrities from the likes of Obama to Madonna and is most famous for its iconic red roofs, the Marriot Marquis San Diego Marina is ideal for those wanting a waterfront location but also to be close to downtown, and the Grande Colonial is a charming seaside hotel close to the beautiful La Jolla Cove and ideally located within an idyllic neighbourhood.

A California Layover when travelling on to Hawaii can be just a few hours in the airport but we highly recommend taking a few days to experience the city. The beauty of a California and Hawaii holiday means that you can also experience 2 different California cities: one on your departing flight and another on your return! This is the perfect way to see a variety of California locations all in one Twin Centre holiday!
