Black Friday and Cyber Monday might still feel far away to you, but they are quite literally DAYS AWAY. Now there’s no need to panic though. We’ve got you covered on just how to make the most of the epic travel deals coming your way. Deals are kind of our speciality after all, nbd 💁♀️.
Black Friday student travel deals
Generally, you can save up to 30% off of regular airfare with our students and young adult discounts. On Black Friday and Cyber Monday the deals will be even better! All our members (not just students!) will be able to score major savings with promo codes on flights. And don’t forget our deals on hotels, too! This year, we’ll have promo codes up to $100 off through our website and in our app – and that’s on top of our regularly discounted airfare! There’s really no better time to snag a great deal.
Whether you need a one-way flight home for the holidays, are thinking ahead to spring break or summer vacay, or just want to take a long weekend getaway this winter, we’ve got what you need. Short weekend getaway to Las Vegas? Check! Epic dream trip to Rome or Thailand? Yup, check there too!
We can’t give away too much about our exact deals yet—for that you’ll just have to come back and see. What we can do is give you our best tips about how to find the best Black Friday and Cyber Monday travel deals, that way you’ll be all set to go when the sales launch!
1. Mark your calendar
Black Friday is on November 24 this year and Cyber Monday is on November 27. Each year our best deals of the day sell out FAST, so be ready to get up if you want to score big with our deals before they’re gone. Early access is live from 12 AM EST to 10 AM EST each day of the sale!
2. Sign up for early access
Our early access list is the best way to ensure you don’t sleep through the best deals of the day. We will be sending promo codes to everyone who signed up for early access hours before everyone else gets to see them (early access begins at 12 AM EST and ends at 10 AM EST when the general sale begins). Our early access list gets exclusive access to those biggest of the big savings of the day. So if you plan to make the most of the discounting, signing up for early access is a must.
3. Become a member (it’s free!)
Our Black Friday and Cyber Monday travel deals are for members only. You don’t have to be a student to be a member either! Make sure you’ve made your account ahead of time so you can book those flights and hotels on Black Friday and Cyber Monday without having to worry about that too. (FYI: signing up for emails doesn’t make you a member—you can lean more about a free membership here.) Signing up is totally free and only takes a minute. AND, if you are a student, verify your student status so that you’ll be seeing all the exclusive student-only discounts and you can get the lowest price possible.
4. Plan your destination goals
If you don’t already have your vacation #goals planned out for the next year, now’s a great time to get planning! This way on Black Friday and Cyber Monday you’ll know exactly where you want to book that flight from and book that hotel room in. Since the best ticket deals will be selling out fast, it’s important to have in mind what you want already to avoid indecision in the moment.
If you’re a bit more spontaneous and go-with-the-flow, you can always keep an eye on our Instagram the day of and just grab the best deal you see!
5. Know when to be looking
We’ll have travel deals for domestic and international flights on both Black Friday and Cyber Monday. If you’re not sure what you’re looking for and just want to score a great deal, you’ll find great options either day. You’ll also want to pay attention to who our airline partners are during the sales! On Black Friday, expect extra discounts from Emirates as well as great deals with Aer Lingus. On Cyber Monday, you’ll see bigger discounts from Qatar Airways, Turkish Airlines, and Delta / Virgin Atlantic (that’s the joint venture for US – Europe flights). So if you think you’ll be booking any of those airlines, definitely plan to book on their respective days.
If you don’t care about the airlines and just want the cheapest flight possible, search on both days. If you don’t find everything you’re dreaming of on Black Friday, then you may just find that perfect deal on flights on Cyber Monday!
But we’re so serious when we say that the biggest discounting (including the partner discounts) will be during our early access shopping time. So like literally, you are losing money if you don’t sign up for early access and shop during that early shopping time from midnight to 10am EST.
6. The earlier you book, the better the deals!
Discounts will be higher in the morning and then may go down throughout the day as the lowest fares sell out. Because of this, the earlier you book the better the deal you’ll get! Our regular access deals launch later in the morning (but we’ll let you know in the days leading up to the sale). Better yet, get on our early access list and keep an eye on your email inbox at 12 AM EST for some exclusive early access shopping time. The savings during early access will be the biggest of the day.
7. Stay in the loop
Joining our email list is the best way to be informed all month long about the latest updates on our biggest sales event of the year. You can also keep informed on social media, following us on Tiktok and Instagram. On Instagram, we’ll have real-time updates throughout both Black Friday and Cyber Monday. This will be your best way to stay updated on things like promo codes, deal alerts, super-low fares and last-chance offers. Oh, and one more way to make sure you don’t miss out on your dream sales pricing? Turn on your push notifications for our app! That way we can loop you in on the deals that will matter most to you.
