  • United Vacations said it is offering a $250 discount per couple off listed prices for air-inclusive Hawaii packages for stays through Aug. 31. Packages must include stays at Hilton, Sheraton, Outrigger or Aston properties. The discount is being offered "to stimulate summer sales and to gain momentum going into the fall season,'' it said. The firm also has changed the minimum stay required for its Aloha Aloha program featuring Oahu and Kauai. Previously the minimum stay was three nights on Oahu and three nights on Kauai; now the minimum is two nights on each island through the rest of the year.
