Book great travel through 2021 this week!
Black Friday, Cyber Monday and Travel Tuesday = Cyber Week! It’s the one week of the year every single solitary retailer rolls out their best deals of the year.
My top tip: Do not get caught up in the breathless “deals” of 20% to 30% off. These discounts are not good deals at all; rather, they’re standard offers that you can easily find throughout the year. Below I’ve hand-curated the offers deemed to have the best bang for your buck!
Note that some of these specials are available to book now whereas most begin at 12:01 a.m. on Black Friday, November 27.
Read the fine print regarding cancel policies. Does the hotel require advance notice of 24 hours, 48 hours or more? Will you receive a full refund or a credit that can be applied to a future trip with the same firm?
Look for the most flexible of policies and print out the details should you need to pursue a refund if you cannot make the trip.
If you do make a travel purchase during Cyber Week, do not (like ever!) prepay for a hotel or resort stay, a tour or vacation package — regardless of promises of a full refund should you need to cancel. During these unsettled times, some suppliers and/or operators may not survive which would leave you high and dry should the company fail.
Deciding to travel or not is a personal decision, but all travelers should take precautions to keep themselves and others safe. Consider all CDC guidelines for any destination of interest — along with any local regulations and requirements. We found Kayak to offer the most up-to-date global map showing where we can travel and any restrictions that apply.
A number of the following deals are available to book now, but most kick-off at 12:01 a.m. on Black Friday, November 27.
