When can I start shopping?

Many travel providers have already released early bird deals, so you could snap up some travel discounts right now. Still, the best sales probably won't drop until Black Friday itself — November 27, continuing through to Cyber Monday. Our advice? When you see a travel deal that fits your budget, go ahead and book it, rather than risk losing out.

  • Most travel providers are offering flexible change and cancellation policies due to COVID-19, so you can book with greater peace of mind.

What to expect

In general, Black Friday travel deals are best for people who've got some wiggle room with their planning, since we mostly see discounts on select itineraries, routes and vacation packages, rather than sitewide markdowns. For example, for flights, there may be super cheap rates from New York to Boston, but fewer deals on smaller airports and less frequented routes.

To give you a better idea of what to expect, here's a sampling of standout deals from 2019:

  • Cruises
    • Carnival — Up to $35 off bookings, plus $50 onboard credit and discounted deposits.
    • Norwegian Cruise Line — 30% off all cruises, plus five free perks per booking.
    • Royal Caribbean — Up to $300 off select cruises, plus 60% off fare for a second passenger.
  • Flights
    • Frontier Airlines — 99% off select routes.
    • Hawaiian Airlines — $179 roundtrip from Los Angeles to Honolulu.
    • Jet Blue — $64 one way from NYC to Boston.
    • Spirit — flights from $24 one way for members.

When is the best time to score Black Friday and Cyber Monday travel savings?

Based on what we've seen in previous years, the best time to score deals is on Black Friday and Cyber Monday — not before, between or after. If you're booking international flights, the best time to score sales is on Cyber Monday, according to Skyscanner.

Here are a few essential booking tips to remember:

  • Keep an open mind. Even if you don't see a discounted flight to the precise destination you were hoping for, try thinking outside the box . For example, if you live in Milwaukee and want to visit Savannah, you could book a cheap flight from Chicago to Atlanta, then snag a Black Friday car rental deal and drive south to the Hostess City of the South.
  • Read the fine print. Make sure you know what is and is not included in the final price. Double-check to see if flights are round trip and whether or not vacation and cruise packages are all-inclusive.
  • Date flexibility can save you even more. If you can be flexible with your departure and arrival dates, you may be able to find even cheaper flights, hotels and rental cars, depending on your destination.

When do Cyber Week travel deals end?

The best Cyber Week travel deals will probably end at midnight on Cyber Monday. However, some providers, especially airlines, extend their sales to Travel Tuesday. If you've got some money leftover in your budget or just didn't have time to shop earlier, Travel Tuesday can be a good time to finish booking.

Traveling during the COVID-19 pandemic

If you plan to travel during the pandemic, monitor and understand the risk assessment levels for your destination when planning your trip, before departure and on arrival. Follow safety measures that include wearing a mask in public settings, maintaining social distancing and washing your hands. If you are diagnosed, have symptoms of or are waiting for test results for COVID-19 — or are otherwise at risk of illness — do not host, attend gatherings or travel for 14 days. Note that the CDC warns against cruise travel at this time.
