Calling all travel families. The best Black Friday and Cyber Monday travel deals of 2019 are almost here, followed by Travel Deal Tuesday (December 3), which experts are saying is the secret weapon for getting the absolute best travel deals. Problem is: There are enough sales out there to make your head spin. So it goes without saying that it’s vital to have a strategy and a game plan as you go into the deal season. We caught up with a couple of experts who shared their tips for making the most of Black Friday, Cyber Monday and Travel Tuesday. Then keep reading for our picks of the absolute best Black Friday, Cyber Monday and Travel Tuesday travel deals for 2019.
Top Tips for Getting the Most Out of Black Friday, Cyber Monday and Travel Tuesday Travel Deals
- Book early in the day. Black Friday, Cyber Monday and Travel Tuesday will all have their own great deals, but the best ones will sell out in a flash. Coupon codes are often restricted to a certain number of uses, so the sooner you can use it, the better. And by booking early, you’ll have a bigger selection.
- Be flexible with your travel dates. Whether you’re planning family or solo travel, it pays to be flexible with your travel dates. By considering other dates and even other airports, you can find surprising savings and better rates.
- Look for perks. When booking hotels on Black Friday/Cyber Monday/Travel Tuesday, look for ones that offer perks for kids. Free activities for children are great, but keep an eye out for hotels that offer discounted rates for kids, or allow kids to stay and eat for free.
- Book for the shoulder season. Holiday travel deals on Black Friday/Cyber Monday/Travel Tuesday typically aren’t applicable for the next few weeks, so you won’t be booking Christmas flights at this time. Instead, use the sales to book a getaway for the new year or spring. January through March is known as the “wave season” for cruise lines, so it’s a great opportunity to find a better rate than sailing in the high season.
- Choose the right day to leave. Stack the savings on Black Friday/Cyber Monday/Travel Tuesday by booking trips on less busy days. For instance, flying out on a Tuesday tends to be cheaper than Friday, depending on your destination.
- Get alerts. The easiest way for families to capitalize on Travel Deal Tuesday bargains is to download a price monitoring tool like Hopper, which will alert you about deals on destinations that you’re interested in throughout the day. Hopper will send you notifications as new deals become available from your city.
- Go to the source. If you have a particular airline that you’re loyal to, you can also visit their website to see if they’re offering special promotions for Travel Deal Tuesday.
- Be flexible. If you’re flexible or unsure where you’d like to go and need inspiration for your next family trip, you can use Hopper’s Deal Finder on Travel Deal Tuesday to browse the best offers from your home airport. Hopper will also be offering exclusive cash back deals and hotel discounts on Travel Deal Tuesday, which can be great for families looking to book their next vacation.
- Choose your travel dates wisely. If your family is heading out of town for Thanksgiving, plan to leave as early as Sunday or Monday ahead of the holiday for the best deals. For Christmas, domestic travelers should plan to depart on Christmas Day or Christmas Eve to save over 30% or $113 compared to a weekend departure.
- When to Book. Prices will fall during the week of Christmas, with discounts over 30% available for families willing to fly on Christmas Eve or Christmas Day compared to peak prices. If flying on the holiday isn’t possible, the next best day to depart will be Monday, December 23rd. Families traveling internationally should plan to depart on Christmas Day if plans are flexible to save 25% off peak prices. The absolute last day to get a great deal on a flight home for the holidays is December 8th. After the 8th, prices will spike $5 per day or more. Prices are always changing (especially for Christmas), since airlines know consumers have travel plans for the holidays. Tracking flights early using a price monitoring tool can ensure that you get the best deals for your family.
- Book a Hotel (or Staycation). Skip the crowded sleepover at your in-laws. Hotels often have a difficult time filling rooms over Thanksgiving and Christmas with so many travelers staying with family or friends for the holidays. Book a hotel stay for your family during the holiday week, and you’ll likely see discounted room rates and cheaper prices. Also, plan a family staycation during Thanksgiving or Christmas. You could score discounts between 8%-10% lower than everyday prices in popular U.S cities during the holiday period.
