Travel between the islands of Hawaii usually requires a short flight (Honoulu to Maui or Kauai takes 30 minutes, or to Big Island takes 40 minutes). The only inter-island ferries are between Maui and Lania and Molokai. The major inter-island airlines offer flights almost every half-an-hour between Oahu and Kauai, Maui and the Big Island. There are also several flights each day between Maui and the Big Island and also between Keahole Airport on the west coast of the Big island and Hilo Airport on the east coast of the Big Island (by car this trip takes about 6 hours).

The most convenient way to get around the islands once in Hawaii is by rental car. US citizens should find that car insurance from their home state will cover them for most insurance (check with the rental agency).

Driving is on the right hand side of the road.

Public buses are excellent on Oahu, Maui, Kauai and the Big Island and are a much cheaper option but do not allow the flexibility of sightseeing. An alternative is to join one of the many coach tours that operate around each island, stopping at the best sightseeing spots.
