Happy Thanksgiving to my American readers and happy deal hunters to everyone else! This is the weekend when savvy travelers and deal hunters will be snagging some incredible deals from travel companies. The best part? This is one time that those companies actually are really going to publicize their deals! If you are looking for some great 2018 Black Friday and Cyber Monday travel deals, stay tuned here as the weekend develops as I will be adding to this list as deals go live.
Updated November 23 at 00:43 EST – Added Turkish Airlines Sale
Master List of 2018 Black Friday and Cyber Monday Travel Deals
Just a note – not all sales advertised as “sales” are necessarily great or even good deals. If you don’t see a deal here, leave it in the comments but I may not have missed it. Instead, I may have not added it since it wasn’t something that was much better than deals we see from time-to-time.
Black Friday and Cyber Monday Airlines Deals
Cathay Pacific – Use promo code HOLIDAY to get great deals from just $593 for economy and $773 in premium economy (which is really the star of this sale). Business class is on sale as well so check it out. This sale runs until November 27.
Ryanair – Every day this weekend, Ryanair will be launching different sales throughout their network – like some deals are for under $5 one way! Prices are much cheaper than normal, but remember that the price is just for you and a backpack. If you want to carry more than that, you will be paying more than your ticket will likely cost. 🙂 This means these deals are great for bouncing around Europe instead of taking trains, buses, or more full-service carriers.
Delta – Delta has been surprising lately with some nice deals for burning your Skymiles. They are continuing that for this weekend with award deals from 36,000 miles round trip to Europe and 70,000 miles roundtrip to Australia. If you want to do it in style, you can redeem 112,000 Skymiles for roundtrip in Delta Premium Select – a nicer way to make this long journey. This sale runs until November 25.
Emirates – Emirates is running Black Friday sales as well from the US to Emirates destinations from just $449 roundtrip. While this is not unusual from Emirates (sometimes, it is right around $400 to Europe), this is still a great deal. Emirates economy is one of the best ways to travel to/from Europe so this is a nice choice. This sale runs until November 24.
Norwegian – Norwegian is a no-frills airline with flights to Europe that can routinely be found from under $100. Starting tomorrow at 12:01AM (Eastern time), they will be having a sale of 15% off those fares as well. If you value quick, cheap hops to Europe for a weekend or other couple days, make sure you look then!
Air New Zealand – Believe it or not, they run a 5th freedom flight from London to Los Angeles and at 10AM London time tomorrow (Black Friday), this route will have 100 seats on sale for about $225 roundtrip! There are limited travel dates and they will still likely go fast so if you are interested, make sure you check it tomorrow! They will also be having Cyber Monday deals that they will release then.
WOW Air – Another cheap airline and another deal of it getting cheaper and wider. From just $69, you can book flights to Iceland and from $99 to Europe! Again, you will want to travel light but this is a steal! The sale is live now and will end November 25.
Qatar Airways – They are advertising something called their “Cyber Offers” and they are good until November 27. Qatar Airways is known for having some very good sale prices from places all over the world so check them out.
British Airways – They will be launching their Black Friday sale today on this page with what they have said will be some great deals so check it out around midday!
American Airlines – They don’t have sale fares but they are running a deal for up to a 100,000 bonus miles when you purchase miles from them. This sale ends November 26.
Avianca Lifemiles – This program is very valuable to those that want to buy miles to redeem for “cheap” business class flights. They even have a sale going on when you redeem the miles as well! This sale is for 145% bonus when buying (through the OMaaT link).
Alaska Airlines – They still have their miles on sale with up to a 50% bonus. If you want to fly the awesome Cathay Pacific business or first class a discount, this is a great way to do it. Plus, you have access use the miles on other carriers as well, like Emirates (though it will cost you more miles).
Singapore Airlines – They recently launched their super long-haul flight from Newark to Singapore – over 17 hours of flying! To make it easier, they don’t even have economy, just premium economy and business on that flight. Now, you can buy that premium economy roundtrip for just $990. That is not that bad! They also have some other great deals as well. Must book by November 26.
Aegean Airlines – Get a 100% bonus when buying miles. This is the best offer they have ever had. You can buy enough miles for transatlantic business class for just $655! This ends November 24.
Turkish Airlines – Save up to 40% on the base fare when you purchase by midnight tonight (EST), November 23. Depart from any US gateway airport and travel from now through May, 2019.
Black Friday and Cyber Monday Hotel Deals
I am going to make this section very easy. Extreme Hotel Deals constantly does some amazing work to ferret out the best deals in hotels and they have assembled an awesome list of what is a great deal. I’m just going to send you over there so you can check them out and use their links to reward them for their hard work.
I will add some other deals I may find here over the weekend as well, but the list by EHD is very comprehensive.
