10 Cyber Monday and Black Friday travel deals every wanderluster should check out
You may or may not be tired of hearing and reading about Black Friday and Cyber Monday deals. I get it. We all get it. Between retailers competing for your hard-earned dollars, finalizing your ever-expanding holiday gift list, and possibly dealing with hectic holiday travel, it can be dizzying. However, in addition to the countless deals you can score online or in stores this long weekend, don’t forget about Cyber Monday and Black Friday travel deals. Hotels, airlines, and even hostels are getting in on the Black Friday and Cyber Monday sales. And there’s even something known as Travel Deal Tuesday that can allow you to indulge in wanderlust without straining your debit card.
If you’ve been meaning to book a solo vacation for the end of the year or next year, or want to plan a girls’ trip or a getaway with your love, you’ll want to check out the sales below. The options range from top-rated hotels offering 35% off to chic hostels across Europe for 25% off where you can indulge in activities as vast as lounging on the beach to skiing the powdery slopes. Some of the discounts start soon and others are already underway, but they all have one thing in common: sweet savings.
1Jewel Grande Montego Bay
Half off is a great sale, and Jewel Grande is giving travelers a Cyber Monday deal of 54% off room rates for stays from August 16th through December 23rd of next year.

2The Jefferson in D.C.
The nation’s capital can be pretty expensive, so if you spot an opportunity to save some coins, do so.

Inspired by Thomas Jefferson, the boutique hotel is also home to award-winning restaurants. And in honor of Giving Tuesday (November 27th), the hotel will double its donation of one book to a child for every room reserved on the 27th.

If you have a favorite airline, stay tuned to its social media to see what offers it might have. And the Hopper app has a Travel Deal Tuesday Deal Finder section on the search screen that allows you to browse all available deals, and you can even set up alerts for specific locations.
