Pristine beaches, dramatic volcanic landscapes, lush tropical rainforests, and now, a new reason to visit the Hawaiian islands: $300 round-trip flights.

This sale, reported by Scott's Cheap Flights, is just the latest in a series of exciting airfare sales that suggest affordable flights to Hawaii could soon become the norm, thanks largely to increased competition from major domestic airlines like United and Hawaiian.

While the best deals continue to be found from cities in the western United States ($298 round-trip from Las Vegas; $330 round-trip from Albuquerque; $331 from Seattle; and $313 from Santa Ana) travelers as far east as Boston can take advantage, too.

Right now, there are $395 round-trip flights from Boston and flights in the low $400s from Florida. Even travelers in major Canadian cities like Toronto, Vancouver, and Montreal can score discounted tickets to Hawaii.

Flights to Honolulu, Kauai, Kona, and Kahului are all included in the sale, though Honolulu has the most availability.

For the best price, use Google Flights to search for trips to Hawaii between April and May, and from September to October. (Thrifty Traveler, which also reported the deal, found some tickets in March and August, too.)

Travelers should note that many of these flights will require extra fees for checked baggage.
