How to Get Black Friday 2019 and Cyber Monday 2019 Travel Deals 

Here’s the best piece of advice we can share for Black Friday 2019 – BE FLEXIBLE. Even if you have a specific destination in mind (like us!), you can still be flexible! Instead of looking for certain dates, look at entire months. Could you go to Puerto Vallarta on May 23rd instead of May 16th? It’s the same month, but you could save hundreds of dollars by changing your departure date.

No matter where you go, you don’t want to grab a fantastic Black Friday travel deal and then discover that it’s deceptive or has hidden fees. In general, here are some tips to help you shop with confidence:

    • Stick to well-known websites, airline carriers, and travel agencies. This will help you avoid being scammed and makes it easier to fight if something goes wrong.
    • Be flexible with your travel dates. Moving your departure and/or arrival by just one day can change the price considerably. Dates in the middle of the week tend to have the deepest discounts.
    • Do your research ahead of time. The best way to know if you’re getting a good deal is to be familiar with the regular prices. 
    • Pick the right day. Consider departing on a Saturday for domestic trips and on a Thursday for international flights. This is just a suggestion, though. Play around with the days and you’ll be amazed by how much prices can vary.
    • Look at other airports. Look at all of the airports near your destination. Choose “New York – All Airports” for example, instead of specifying JFK, LaGuardia, or Newark.
    • Read the fine print. Look for what’s actually included in the final price. Will you have baggage, seat selection, or resort fees? Are the flights round trip? Are the vacation packages all-inclusive, and if so, what does that truly mean?

Most importantly, take a deep breath. You might be tempted to jump on a deal immediately, but take a few moments to make sure everything looks right. You could miss out, yes, but you could also get locked into something that you don’t want.

Travel Tuesday vs. Black Friday and Cyber Monday

Over the past couple of years, we’ve noticed that, on domestic routes, both Cyber Monday and Travel Tuesday deals have featured cheaper flight prices than Black Friday. Of the three, though, the best travel deals were found on Cyber Monday. 

Looking to book internationally? Don’t even think about waiting till Travel Tuesday! It was the most expensive of the three with Cyber Monday, again, offering the deepest discounts. 

Of course, that could all change this year. 

That’s the one thing we want you to remember as you click on links and search for the best travel deals on Black Friday and Cyber Monday in 2019. From year to year, things can change. Do the best you can, be grateful for the savings (even if you see something better minutes after making a purchase!) and enjoy yourself. You’re going on vacation!
