Black Friday & Cyber Monday Travel Sales

Jessica Peterson


The great thing about shopping for travel? Not getting trampled by a soccer mom at Walmart! Now’s a good time to sign up for emails from travel vendors (airlines, hotels, tour companies, etc.) and follow them on social media. Full disclosure: I earn nothing if you book with any of these companies.

These are my picks for best Black Friday/Cyber Monday travel deals:


  • Cathay Pacific’s countdown clock to Black Friday has been promising deals “bigger and better than ever!” Take a tour of those offers if Hong Kong or one of the other 40 countries the airline flies to is on your 2014 “to do” list. (SOURCE:
  • Virgin America will be holding an 8-hour Black Friday sale with holiday and winter fares starting from $49 each way (restrictions apply). (SOURCE:
  • A possible 15% off airfare for travel on Cathay Pacific. The airline has announced that they’ll be doing another Black Friday/Cyber Monday sale this year, but what the discount will be is a surprise. If it’s anything like the previous years, they’ll offer 15% off bookings plus entry in a prize drawing. (SOURCE:
  • Special sale fares on select South America flights with LAN. This sale is Cyber Monday only and only on their dedicated sale site(SOURCE:
  • Up to 50% off flights via, as the travel booking site unloads “select seats from unsold inventory” for non-holiday travel. Check their last-minute travel page(SOURCE:
  • Up to 50% off airfare and hotels. Expedia isn’t clear what sort of Black Friday sales they’ll offer, but the special Black Friday page allows for airline-only, hotel-only, and airline+hotel searches. Deals are strictly available on Black Friday, Nov. 28 from 9 a.m.–9 p.m. PST. (SOURCE:
  • Slashed airfares found via TheFlightDeal (major airports) and FareDealAlert (secondary airports). Regardless of the day, these sites use an equation to discover hidden deals and have standards, such as a guarantee that their highlighted airfares cost 6 cents per mile or less. We scan them every hour or so for updates and just booked a winter roundtrip to Aruba for under $250 total. So yeah, it works. (SOURCE:
