Black Friday will fall on 24th November 2017, and with just 10 days to go until the biggest blowout of the year, many hotels and airlines are already starting to drop details of their ‘top secret travel deals’ in a bid to attract hordes of savvy shoppers who are looking to bag themselves a bargain Christmas Break or a Sporting Spring Getaway.
Long-haul luxury, magical beach getaways, and European city breaks will be available at hugely discounted prices next Friday, and as many travel companies have decided to keep their sales running right through the weekend until the end of business on Cyber Monday, this could be the perfect weekend for stocking up on goodies, turning up the heating, and indulging in a little bit of retail therapy!
While most airlines are keeping tight-lipped about their pending Black Friday Sales, European budget airline Ryanair has already announced an entire week of exclusive flight deals during its very own ‘Cyber Week’, which is due to stretch from Monday 21st November right through to the 28th. With flight tickets starting at just £4.99 one-way (London Stansted to Oslo Norway), the timing couldn’t be better to book yourself a Ryanair flight bargain – your airfare could cost less than a cup of tea at the airport!
In 2016, most major international airlines participated in Black Friday, with British Airways offering savings of up to 49 per cent on long-haul flights to North America and the Middle East, and 2-night European city breaks for just £99 per person. The chances of them offering something similar next week is pretty high, but the cheapest tickets will sell out fast, so you may want to set your alarm… or just not go to bed at all on Thursday night!
When it comes to hotels, the Marriott Hotel Chain are promising their ‘biggest sale of the year’ during their 5-Day Cyber Week from 23rd – 27th November, and even hotel consolidators such as Expedia are set to offer mega discounts during the Black Friday Sale weekend.
With winter fast approaching in the Northern Hemisphere, now is the perfect time to book your winter escape, and with Black Friday bargains, you may be able to go a whole lot further, and do so for less!
