We will be starting from SJPdP in late August. If anyone has any experience worth sharing on getting there from Hawaii, it would be greatly appreciated... :D

Aloha!

You might want to look into flying Westward, unlike the rest of us who fly East towards Europe...if you do fly Eastward, have you looked into flying from Hawaii (not sure which island you are on) to NYC, then onto Paris? I think Hawaiian Airlines flies into NYC.

I prefer to fly into Paris, out of Madrid. It's called an open jaw ticket. If you need some help with this feel free to PM me...I know of some resources that might be able to help you out. This might be a good reason to use a travel agent.

That's quite the challenge, I have to say!

In Gratitude for your help! Flying into Madrid saves almost $500; now if I can just make everything else work; I don't really understand the open jaw ticket, would you mind explaining? (I couldn't figure out how to send this PM).

If you look below my picture, there is a little PM button you can click on to PM me...hope that helps.

Open jaw tickets are where you fly into one city but out of another city. For instance, fly into Paris, fly out of Madrid. It's much easier to get from Paris to SJPdP than from Madrid to SJPdP. You can look for these kinds of tickets on Kayak.com using the "Multi-City" option.

You can also contact me via my blog....address is in my signature.

Or you can take a train from Paris to SJPdP which is easier.

Analoha:

This is going to be one long day plus of travel.

You have several options. BTW, I am using 8/20 to 9/26 for dates.

One option would be to fly HNL to Paris CDG (25 hours) 1 stop in Dallas. Then travel to Montparnesse train station (30 min.) and take the TGV to Bayonne (5.5hrs), then the local train to SJPdP (1.5hrs). 32 hours plus time in between scheduled departures. Then Santiago to Madrid (1.5 hrs.) and Madrid to HNL (25 hrs). Scheduling should be easier here.

Option two. Fly HNL to London LHR (20-23 hrs.) Transfer from LHR to Stansted (2 hrs.) airport and fly Ryanair to Biarritz (2.5 hrs) short taxi to Bayonne and then local train to SJPdP (1.5 hrs). Return fly Santiago to Stansted (2.5hrs), travel Stansted to LHR (Heathrow) (2hrs), LHR to HNL (19-23hrs).

Option three - Fly HNL to Madrid (25hrs), Madrid to Pamplona (probably 2 hrs), taxi to SJPdP (check forum to share ride/cost with others). Return Santiago to Madrid Madrid to HNL (25hrs).

All options add up to a long trip.

Some things to consider in your decision making. Do you know anyone you want to visit in any of these cities (London, Madrid or Paris)? Would you like to spend time visiting any of these cities? do you prefer traveling by plane train or bus? Is cost an issue? Do you have to start in SJPdP? Pamplona could be an option, many start there?

Hope this helps. If I can be of further assistance, please feel free to PM me.

Ultreya,
Joe
