For those who would prefer to book directly, consider doing so through Fiji Airways, which offers flights for just less than $700 from LA and San Francisco and less than $600 from Honolulu.

For example, you could spend Thanksgiving in Fiji by booking this Fiji Airways flight from LAX to NAN on Nov. 21 and returning on Nov. 28 for $698 round-trip — the cheapest fare available for this route and these dates.

This flight is for the carrier’s Economy Sale fare, which offers most of the same benefits as the airline’s Economy and Economy Flexi fares; it allows passengers one full-size carry-on bag and a checked bag. This ticket and Economy fare types are nonrefundable, but ticket changes are permitted up to 24 hours prior to departure for a $100 fee, plus any change in the new fare price.

Honolulu-based fliers could also get a Fiji Airways deal for the same week for $598. Both of these flights are for the Economy Sale fare type, so the same fare rules apply.

And when you do spend on dining, you should use a credit card that will maximize your rewards and potentially even score special discounts. Thanks to temporary card bonuses and changes due to coronavirus, you may even be able to score a meal at your favorite restaurant for free. 

These are the best credit cards for dining out, taking out, and ordering in to maximize every meal purchase.
