  • If you are going to rent a car in an Hawaii port o’ call be prepared to face traffic problems from the port rental agency all the way to the golf course, high rental fees, the second highest gas prices in the country, and add in parking golf resort fees of $40 – $50 a day.

  • If you hire a shared taxi to get you to your golf course be prepared for a squeeze and tip the driver upfront as an incentive to return to the golf course to pick you up at least two hours before the ship is due to set sail. Passengers are required to be onboard one hour before the published sailing time. If the Pride of America cruise ship sails without you, you are responsible (at your own cost) to fly to the next port of call, pay for an overnight hotel and transportation to the ship. The onboard crew will tell you tales of passengers “missing the boat” – with regularity it seems!

  • ‘Do-it-yourselfer’ golf travel arrangers should, as a matter of course, always ask every Pro Shop you book tee times with, taxi, Uber driver or any other travel vendor or tour operator if they have current Errors of Omissions Insurance and Liability Insurance?

Pride of America Golf Excursions in HawaiiTaking a ‘trip and fall’ over someone’s golf bag and breaking a leg is no fun. If you haven’t purchased Trip Cancellation & Trip Interruption Reimbursement Insurance, you better hope your ground operator vendor has current Errors of Omissions Insurance and Liability Insurance in place! Abraham Lincoln Had It Right – “He who represents himself has a fool for a client”.

Hire a travel agent. Travel agencies like GolfAhoy and Hawaii Golf Cruises are ‘one stop shop’ golf cruise professionals who have been selling bundled golf cruise packages in Hawaii for 30 years – in the case of GolfAhoy! And neither of them charge you service fees. They’ll book your Pride of America cruise and reserve all your Pride of America golf excursions in Hawaii. And they both have Errors of Omissions Insurance and Liability Insurance coverage.

Some people mistakenly believe that they can get a lower cruise fare by booking directly with the cruise line because travel agents earn a booking commission.

This is NOT true!

If the price of a seven-day Hawaii cruise booked directly with the cruise line, is say $5,000 per couple, the cruise line will NOT reduce or discount the price by 10% just because they are not paying a travel agent a 10% commission. They will still charge you the full amount and pocket the difference. In effect, the cruise line pays the commission, you do not – but your travel agent will get you the EXACT same price that the cruise line will charge you. If you book directly with the cruise line demand a 10% discount or an onboard spending credit equivalent to 10% of your cruise fare! It pays to always book with a travel agent. By way of an Editors tip, never pay for travel with cash or check. Always pay deposits and final payments with your credit card, you have greater protection of your trip investment funds in the event of a supplier bankruptcy.

For ‘Do-it-yourselfers’.

  • Taxis, Uber, and Private Driver cars are located outside Hawaii island port security gates. On average, an Uber ride is 64% cheaper than the average taxi service in Hawaii https://get.uber.com/
  • Tee times can be pre-booked through online outfits like Hawaii Tee Times which is locally based in Honolulu https://hawaiiteetimes.com/
