It happens every year, Black Friday and Cyber Monday when everything goes a bit crazy. Hordes of shoppers queue up outside shops and department stores, road rage is boiling over and people struggle as they navigate the streets with overflowing bags and boxes piled high with new purchases. Then in the aftermath, homes are a mess with all those bargains that people probably didn’t need in the first place.
All of that is my idea of a nightmare and the reason I never leave the house to partake in the consumerist madness. However, that doesn’t mean I completely ignore Black Friday and Cyber Monday, because there’s one sale that does tempt me every time. That’s the travel-related online Black Friday travel sales and subsequent Cyber Monday travel sales where there are some real Black Friday Travel deals to be had and some on Cyber Monday too.
Obviously, 2020 is a bit of an anomaly and all that outside craziness is looking unlikely, although I expect many of us are longing for it. However, that does give us all even more of a reason to be doing our shopping online.
When is Black Friday and Cyber Monday in 2020?
In 2021 Black Friday is on the 26th November and Cyber Monday is on the 29th November 2020.
Many deals start on Friday and run for a week and some start even early. However, don’t delay because some only last a day so be sure to read the small print!
Cyber Monday and Black Friday Travel Sales
How can you regret those flight deals to your dream destination or that huge discount on a luxury hotel you wouldn’t normally consider? And what about all that travel gear you need for an upcoming trip? The online sales for Black Friday and Cyber Monday are definitely the time to buy all of these. Especially this year when many of us are locked down at home. Plus, travel bargains are likely to be even better, ready for when all this COVID-19 nonsense is over.
So with that in mind, I’ve scoured the internet to find the best Black Friday travel deals and Cyber Monday travel deals for you.
Black Friday and Cyber Monday Travel Gear Deals
Amazon’s Black Friday week is already live with up to 50% off selected products. This year it’s all about the cameras and accessories. Regardless of if you want a mirrorless, full-frame or point & shoot, Amazon is sure to have a deal for you to get what you want at a bargain price. How about 24% off this Panasonic LUMIX DC-S5E-K S5 Full Frame Mirrorless Camera or up to 43% off Olympus cameras and lenses.

Water-to-Go Filter Water Bottle
Not strictly a Cyber Monday or Black Friday travel deal but Water-to-Go filter water bottles are seriously amazing and I have two great discounts for you depending on where you’re located, so I thought I’d include it.

Cyber Monday and Black Friday Flight Deals
We use Skyscanner to book nearly all of our flights and it’s always my first port of call to compare flights from different airlines. My favourite feature is the search ‘anywhere’ feature which sometimes enables me to find ridiculously cheap flights. It’s amazing what you can find if you can be flexible and is great for some inspiration if you’re not sure where you fancy going next.
US Skyscanner has a selection of Black Friday and Cyber Monday flight deals for various airlines such as American Airlines and Aer Lingus. The UK Skyscanner also has some great Black Friday and Cyber Monday flight deals planned. Both sites will be updated with new deals daily until 4th December 2020, so be sure to bookmark this page to check back then. Obviously, due to COVID-19, it’s sensible to book ‘flexible’ flights which allow changes if necessary.
