Black Friday and Cyber Monday may have started off as great times to buy TVs, laptops, toys and other small electronics for the holiday gift-giving season, but it has grown into essentially a full week (or longer) when almost everything imaginable goes on sale — and that includes travel.

While discounts on travel-adjacent items like suitcases and headphones are obviously exciting, there’s nothing like scoring a deal on an actual trip or experience.

Here are the best Black Friday travel deals, along with the Cyber Monday and even some Travel Tuesday deals that quickly follow.

Bookmark this page, as we will update it throughout the Black Friday and Cyber Monday travel deal shopping season.

How to find and book Cyber travel deals

Often, the best travel Black Friday, Cyber Monday and even Travel Tuesday deals are sent out directly from various travel brands. Pay attention to your email inbox and the websites of travel brands, as well as the travel brands’ social media sites, especially Twitter, Facebook and Instagram.

The best Black Friday travel deals are sometimes not only time-limited but also quantity-limited.

This means that when you see a travel deal that looks right for your wants and needs, it’s unlikely you’ll have the ability to think it over for very long. Be ready to book now and ask questions later.

Obviously, that means you’ll want to pay attention to the cancellation and modification rules, as well as the penalties of each offer, so you can grab a deal without hesitation when possible.

Grand Hyatt Kauai. SUMMER HULL/THE POINTS GUY

You can potentially add to the savings of a Black Friday or Cyber Monday travel deal by first checking to see if you can make the booking with a specific credit card and/or first clicking through a cash-back site.

Some potential ways to stack savings on travel deals include:

  • Amex Offers, which are open to those with American Express-issued cards.
  • Chase Offers, which are open to those with Chase-issued cards.
  • Citi Merchant Offers, which are open to those with Citi-issued cards.
  • Clicking through Rakuten before booking for bonus cash back or bonus American Express Membership Rewards points.
