The best Black Friday travel deals!

Staying in a gorgeous hotel or lying on a tropical beach never fails to make us happy, which is why we’re excited to bring you all the best discounts around the world. Just think of us as your BFF when it comes to BF!

Itching to get away? Missing your mini breaks? Well, Black Friday’s just around the corner and there are LOADS of bargains to be bagged if you know where to click. 

The big day falls on 26 Nov, however travel discounts tend start before and run after that date, so you don’t necessarily need to be involved in the one-day, break the internet BF shopping frenzy.

With world-wide travel restrictions starting to wind down, now’s the time to book a holiday and have something to look forward to in 2022, so get scrolling!


You can splash out on poolside dining when your holiday cost £72!

Would you like to go on holiday for less than £100? Assuming the answer’s an unequivocal yes, then check out LastMinute’s awesome Black Friday deal to the Cavalieri Art Hotel in Malta for four nights – £72 including flights! We’ll take two, thanks. 

Oh to be lying by the pool at the Constance Prince Maurice

Turquoise Holidays is slicing 50% off all sorts of dreamy trips for bookings made between 26-29 Nov, so start browsing asap. We’ve got our eye on seven nights at the five-star Constance Prince Maurice in Mauritius for £1549pp including flights – a saving of £1500 per couple! 

St Lucia, we’re coming for you

If you were Caribbean dreaming during lockdowns, now could be the time to take the plunge and visit as prices are plummeting. Destination2‘s offering up to 45% off some of its holidays to the archipelago, including Bay Gardens Hotel in St Lucia which is now £799pp ALL-INCLUSIVE plus flights *books*. If you want to browse more St Lucia Black Friday deals, the tourist board has set up its own BF site!

Secret Escapes has some of the best deals out there even before BF, but with added discounts on top it feels rude not to take up some of these hols. I’ve got my eye on a three-night best of winter in Iceland trip, from £279pp including flights. Includes at stay in Reykjavik, chance to see the Northern Lights, majestic whales and enchanting landscapes – beyond a bargain.

Expedia’s also gone big on BF this year with a member-only sale – you have to sign up (for free) to access thousands of hotels offering 30% off until 29 Nov. 


CitizenM LA, baby

CitizenM hotels are A) stylish and B) in hot spots around the world, like LA and er, Glasgow. So when we hear it’s giving up to 30% off stays across its boutique retreats in an extended BF sale, we’re interested. The offer runs until 30 Nov and starts NOW my friends! 

Apex Edinburgh

Fancy a weekend break in Edinburgh, London or Bath? Well Apex hotels has properties in all these lovely locations and is giving 30% off room rates for Black Friday. The offer’s for stays until 30 April 2022, but must be booked between now and 1 Dec. 

Rama Residence Padma in Bali, don’t mind if we do

Lots of deals to be had at this BF, including 50% off The Cosmopolitan in Las Vegas, 58% off at Ocho Rios in the Caribbean and a whopping 70% off at Rama Residence Padma in Bali. 

Top ranking, Resident Hotel Covent Garden!

Fancy a trip to the capital? Resident Hotel Covent Garden (currently ranked #1 of 1,195 traveller ranked hotels in London on TripAdvisor, oooo!) is offering 20% off stays until 30 March 2022, if booked been now and 30 Nov. Positioned on The Strand close to the theatre district, it’s a choice spot if you want to cram in some culture in the New Year. . 

Malmaison for the win

Malmaison’s giving good BF this year: a stay in a luxury room plus two-course dinner from £60. The deal’s available from 19 Dec through to 31 Jan and the group has 17 boutique getaways to choose from across the UK – sale starts on 26 Nov! 


Hong Kong harbour

You can fly to Hong Kong for as little as £439 with Cathay Pacific if you book between 19-29 November, though the airline is referring to it as Green rather than Black Friday because as well as discounts it’s also offering to carbon offset all of the flights bought in that time. Other deals include Bangkok and Bali for £549. 

We’re mad for Manhattan

Oh Manhattan we’ve missed you and we can’t wait to window shop up Fifth Avenue again, preferably after travelling there on a bargain £345 flight from London to NY in March 2022, thanks to Virgin Atlantic! Or for £344 in Jan with British Airways.


Aquatic Club pool deck on the Scarlet Lady

Virgin Voyages is shaving 20% off its prices between 15-29 Nov, so now you can sail away around Mexico’s Riviera Maya on the new Scarlet Lady between Dec to March 2022 for £1038pp AND get a $100 bonus bar tab thrown in. Cheers.
