Where to score Black Friday travel deals
By Jessica Plautz 2014-11-26 09:38:42 UTC
Everyone wants to get in on the consumer rush to purchase on Black Friday and Cyber Monday, and travel companies are no exception.
Several hotels and booking sites — and even private jet charters — are offering deals beginning Friday.
Make sure to set a reminder if you want to take advantage of one of these deals. And when you book, check the fine print on taxes, any extra fees, and cancellation policies.
Hopper fare alerts
Hopper is flagging airfares that are at least 20% lower than the flight tracking site’s existing “good deal” in each market. When you click on a deal, Hopper shows the best price from when it first identified the sale, and the best that is still available.
About 80 significant fare sales happen every day but only last for a little while, according to Hopper.
Private jet company ClipperJet is even getting in on discounts.
Anyone who signs up for the service between Friday, Nov. 29 and Wednesday, Dec. 24, will receive a $3,000 savings on the first three months of their membership which provides private transportation on Gulfstream IV twin-jet aircrafts between New York and Los Angeles.
ClipperJet is adding additional cities in the “near future.” Anyone who signs up for a six-month membership between those same dates will get one free round-trip flight for a guest.
At 7 a.m. on Friday, last-minute booking service HotelTonight will have $7 hotel rooms in destinations in the U.S. and UK. The service will also have $70 deals available through Cyber Monday. To take advantage of the deal, you’ll need to download the app.
