Hawaii is home to some of the world’s best holiday destinations, and it’s not hard to see why.
But for the last decade or so, the island has been hit hard by a series of hurricanes, and the damage has been staggering.
So far this year, the average price of a one-bedroom vacation has been more than double the national average.
And it’s only getting worse.
According to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, the state of Hawaii is now the most expensive place to vacation in the world, with average prices up more than 100 percent since October.
What’s driving this surge in prices?
The main culprit?
Hurricanes Harvey and Irma, which have wreaked havoc on the island’s tourism industry.
The hurricanes have destroyed or severely damaged a significant portion of the island.
According the Kauai County Department of Tourism and Hawaiian Affairs, tourism revenues are down by more than half since Hurricane Irma.
And with hurricane season upon us, many local businesses are already struggling to survive.
But what can you do to save money on a vacation when the hurricane season is just beginning?
