Adding a Special Offer for Visitors or Travel Advisors
Consumer Special Offers
Market direct to consumers by adding a special offer in our GoHawaii destination app and kiosks located at various locations statewide. The app is designed to enhance travelers pre and post-arrival experiences as well as provide HVCB members the opportunity to create additional reach to the consumer market and showcase what our industry has to offer.
In addition to the GoHawaii Destination app, offers are also displayed on our consumer offers page.
There is no cost to participate but the offer must provide an added value to the consumer (i.e. a discount, promotional item, etc.) Offers are self-managed allowing you to set the offer criteria accordingly i.e.: choose your own effective and end dates, blackout dates and other restrictions that may apply.
