Black Friday is known for cheap electronics, deals on the hottest holiday gifts, and long lines. Some of the most overlooked Black Friday deals are related to travel. Every year major online travel agencies, hotel chains, and airlines offer incredible discounts. Lucky for you I’ve rounded up my top picks for this year.
Black Friday Airline Sales
There have been a ton of great flight deals lately. Especially between the US and Europe. Like most businesses in the States, many airlines will be offering Black Friday deals. Finding the best deals can be tough because there have been soooo many flight deals recently. I’ve saved you the work and picked the sales that I expect to offer the deals.
My favorite Black Friday flight deals are always Air New Zealand. Flying to New Zealand from the States can range from $1,000-$2,000 round trip easily. If 2017’s flight deals starting at $496 roundtrip are any indication this will be a sale you won’t want to miss. Air New Zealand is currently promoting that they will be offering heavily discounted flights from Los Angeles. Other US airports that Air New Zealand flies direct to Auckland from are San Francisco, Houston, and Chicago.
Another international carrier promoting steep discounts is Cathay Pacific. This luxury carrier is promoting flights starting at $593 roundtrip from the states to Asia.
Norwegian will be discounting their flights between the US and Europe 15% for Black Friday.
Southwest is offering discounts on flights and packages.

After you snag your cheap flight to New Zealand, you’ll be needing a hotel. Many hotel chains and online travel agencies are offering steep deals on room nights for Black Friday. Below are the sales that I will be watching.
