I never used to “get” Black Friday.
Like, camping out in the cold for a new TV? Stampedes at the local shopping mall? Nah man, not for me.
And then, two magical things appeared into my life: travel, and the Internet.
It turns out, Black Friday/Cyber Monday are some of THE best dates to book things for travel, because fares, packages, etc. get crazy cheap! Ahhhhh. Now I wait every year in anticipation for this weekend.
So, if you’re looking to save BIG on travel this year, here are some of the best deals I’ve been able to find!

20% Off (Already Discounted) Travel Experiences
I’m a big fan of voucher websites like Living Social, where they offer limited time deals for amazing experiences at a steep discount (often 50% off or more). This includes things like hotels, vacation packages, etc. where you can save hundreds or even thousands of dollars. For Black Friday, they’re offering a 20% off SITEWIDE promotion on every deal they have, which means an additional 20% discount on already insanely cheap prices. Wowzers. Check them out here.

Flixbus is already one of the most affordable ways to get around Europe and in honour of Black Friday, they’re rolling out a crazy promotion where the first seats on their buses are only £14.90, which is less than $20USD. Hop on this deal because these cheap tickets are guaranteed to go quickly.

Expedia – 75% Off Hotels, $750 Off Packages and more
I’ve always loved using Expedia to find the best deals on holidays. I used them to book my first ever backpacking trip to Europe, so I guess you can say I’m a bit of a nostalgic loyalist 😉 They have LOADS of amazing deals in store for Black Friday/Cyber Monday, including 75% off hotels, $750 off vacation packages and more. Check out the many deals here.

Insane Airline Flight Deals
If there’s a trip you need to book a flight for, this weekend is a great time to do it.
SO many airlines are releasing discounted fares, too many for me to list. Here’s my trick: I always use Skyscanner or Momondo check for the cheapest prices and use their “Destination Everywhere” and Fare Comparison Calendars to find the cheapest deals.
That said, if you want to see the best deals sorted by airline, Skyscanner has put them all together here.

20% Off All Eurail Passes (+ additional 10 euros off this weekend)
If you’ve been following me on Instagram, you’ve likely seen how much fun I’ve been having with my sponsored Eurail pass. If you’re looking for the most convenient and comfortable way to get around Europe, trains are the way to go! These passes especially allow you to be super flexible and spontaneous with your plans. I do acknowledge that they’re not the cheapest option though, which is why you should definitely hop on this deal while it lasts! If you’ve been wanting to travel around Europe by train, Eurail is offering a discount of 20% on ALL their passes, with a bonus 10 euro discount if you book this weekend. I highly recommend getting a pass if comfort, flexibility and convenience are your top priorities.
