Black Friday – What to expect from the travel industry

Black Friday

At this time of year, brands launch their most competitive deals for consumers in time for Christmas. That’s right, Black Friday is roughly three weeks away. As soon as midnight strikes on November 24th, companies of the travel industry will have some seriously good deals. Sometimes deals can seem too good to be true. Here’s what to look out for:

What should we expect from Black Friday 2017?

At this moment in time, airlines and holiday resorts have not yet started advertising their deals, therefore you should delay booking any trips until they do. In November 2016, Black Friday and Cyber Monday showed us remarkable deals such as half price savings on car hire from Ryanair, up to 50% off of flights on Expedia and hundreds of hotels dropping room prices all over the US and UK.

We expect to see many deals for destinations such as Tunisia, as this destination is now reopen for British travellers. Click here for travel advice when travelling to Tunisia.

What makes a good Black Friday deal?

Generally, the closer you get to the departure date, the more money a consumer can save when booking a holiday package. This is due to companies wanting to fill passenger seats, as some money is better than no money at all. Use this to your advantage! At Compare Holiday Money we advise you to purchase your currency as soon as your holiday is booked. This will help you avoid airport charges. You can compare the best prices on our website.

There is a similarity between Black Friday deals and January sales, in the sense that companies want as many bookings in advance as possible. These offers guarantee you to have first pick at the best resorts for a cheaper price. This can make all the difference to your holiday, as it could be the difference between a sea view room or something not so pleasant. 

Be cautious of ‘free extras’. These often mean that you pay extra for one element so that the company doesn’t make a loss on what they advertise to you as ‘free’. Something positive to look out for is free upgrades on your travel or accommodation, as this will come at no extra cost.

I hope this guide to Black Friday deals helps you find the perfect holiday for you. If you have any questions, let us know in the comments.
