Black Friday may have started off as a great time to buy TVs, laptops, toys and other small electronics for the holiday gift-giving season, but it has grown into essentially a full week (or longer) when almost everything imaginable goes on sale — and that includes travel.
While discounts on travel-adjacent items such as suitcases and headphones are obviously exciting, there’s nothing like scoring a deal on an actual trip or experience.
Here are the best Black Friday travel deals, along with the Cyber Monday and even Travel Tuesday deals that quickly follow.

How to find and book Black Friday travel deals
Often, the best travel Black Friday deals are sent out directly from the various travel brands. Pay attention to your email inbox and the websites of travel brands, as well as the travel brands’ social media sites, especially Twitter, Facebook and Instagram.
The best Black Friday travel deals are sometimes not only time-limited but also quantity-limited.
This means that when you see a travel deal that looks right for your wants and needs, it’s unlikely you’ll have the ability to think it over for very long. Be ready to book now and ask questions later.
Obviously, that means you’ll want to pay attention to the cancellation and modification rules, as well as the penalties of each offer, so you can grab a deal without hesitation when possible.
You can potentially add to the savings of a Black Friday travel deal by first checking to see if you can make the booking with a specific credit card and/or first clicking through a cash-back site.
Some potential ways to stack savings on travel deals include:
- Amex Offers, which are open to those with American Express-issued cards.
