Why Right Now Is The Right Time For A Hawaii Adventure

While Hawaii was initially less significantly impacted than other areas by the banking and housing meltdowns of late 2008 and 2009, as the past year unfolded the true economic impact on Hawaii became clearly evident. Over the course of 2009 the islands of aloha have seen the fewest visitors since 2003. The reduction in visitors coupled with the growth of the travel and vacation industries throughout the more prosperous times in the 90's and early 2000's, created near historical lows in accommodation occupancy levels and business in general.

The first benefit of the current state of Hawaii tourism is the simple fact that there are less people. Less visitors means less crowded beaches, accommodations, and attractions, accompanied by a consumer advantage in the marketplace, and an eagerness of competing business to earn the privilege of serving you which brings us to the second major benefit. This author cannot recall a time in the past ten years that Hawaii companies have been offering so many promotional offers, deals, specials and truly deep discounts. Even companies not publicly promoting discounts or savings are more willing than ever to cut a deal.

Below are just a few of the great deals and bargains being offered by airlines, hotels, hostels, tour operators, car rental companies, and entertainment establishments.

New Features Added for Your Convenience

In the weeks since our official launch date on June 1st, many new features have been added to Adventure Travel Hawaii, to make the site even better! The three major new features are a Sort By selector, an automatic link code generator, and a last update time indicator. We are constantly dreaming up new ways to make our site more useful to visitors. If you have any suggestion of cool features you would like to see on Adventure Travel Hawaii, please don't hesitate to contact us about it.

The Sort By selector can be found on the homepage, as well as all of the island, city, and category pages. All listings on these pages are sorted and displayed in the order of their Overall Rating by default, however by checking one of the radio buttons and clicking GO you can have the listings displayed by any of the following criteria :

Overall Rating : This is determined by the three key factors of review ratings, popularity, and Adventure Travel Hawaii’s unique listing score algorithm.
Review Rating : This is simply generates an average user review score for each listing and then displays them in order from the highest rated to the lowest rated.
Popularity : This is determined by a running tally of how many visitors have viewed the detail page for each of the listings posted on Adventure Travel Hawaii. Sorting by popularity will display all listings in order from the most viewed to the least.
Newest First : Choosing this option simply orders all listings by their submission time from the most recent to the earliest posted. This option helps to give new listings a shot at coming up at the top of the list against long established listings with high review and popularity scores.

The automatic link code generator can be helpful to people wishing to link to us since it allows you to chose a city and category of interest, and then automatically generates link code, and optionally a description to be included with the link. Anyone wishing to request a link exchange, or activate featured listing eligibility for their listing can also use the link code generator to produce HTML code for their link to us, and to report the address where you have published the link.

Last but not least is the Last Update Indicator, which can be found at the very bottom of every page on the site. The display time for the last update indicator is updated any time the visible content of the site changes, for example when, a new listing or review is approved for display, a news article is published, when a new city, category is added, or when new pages or features are added to the site. We sincerely hope that you will find these new features useful, and once again encourage you to contact our webmasters if you have any ideas or suggestions on how we can improve Adventure Travel Hawaii.
