Free Hawaii Travel Itineraries and Travel Planner from GLAD Travel

Online Hawaii budget travel company announces free resources for travelers to the Hawaiian Islands. GLAD advocates the idea of researching & planning a trip independently to save both time and money.

Honolulu, HI (PRWEB) March 17, 2006 — (, a website promoting independent travel researching and planning, has launched free, new resources to assist travelers to the Hawaiian Islands. These resources include three types of sample itineraries for Oahu, Maui, Kauai, and the Big Island, downloadable maps, event calendars, best of Hawaii highlights, island hopping information, and a variety of images.

“Planning one’s own travel, rather purchasing packages or letting an agency plan a trip, can not only be educational but give a traveler more options for saving money and ensuring an authentic island experience,” asserts Anitra Pickett, CEO of GLAD Travel. “How can a traveler learn about the culture of their destination when they only interact with other tourists on a package tour?” Pickett questions.

The vast amount of travel information available on the Internet today and newer options for online booking open up the opportunity for increasing numbers of people to take an active role in their vacation planning. In previous years, the detailed and searchable information needed to book a budget trip had only been available to travel agents. Pickett states that GLAD Travel seeks to create transparency in markets such as Hawaii, giving independent travelers a one stop website to find comprehensive and even book-able information.
