Where to find the best travel deals this Black Friday 2020
Black Friday is often bursting with tech deals on toasters, electric toothbrushes and TVs - you’re always spoilt for choice. But in the last few years, there’s a new contender on the Black Friday market. The long-awaited spending frenzy has now infiltrated the world of holidays and travel deals! Discover hundreds of discounts from tour operators, airlines and hotels this Black Friday.
With the whole world slowly going back to normal after the Covid-19 pandemic that swept the globe, people are more eager than ever to pack their bags and getaway. Whether that’s flying to a tropical oasis, an action-packed city break in Europe or driving up to a nearby campsite for the weekend, a holiday helps all of us unwind, reconnect and get a well-deserved break. Don’t forget to check the official travel guidelines of both the UK and the country you’re visiting before you book any holidays abroad.
That’s why we think Black Friday 2020 will be the biggest and best year for Black Friday travel deals. So we are going to run through what discounts you can expect to see this year and exactly where to find them.
Our Black Friday travel predictions for 2020
Deals and offers on flights
In 2019 we saw some HUGE travel deals hit the market over the Black Friday period, with some even starting from the beginning of November.
- Ryanair launched a sale with up to 25% off over one million seats.
- Air Transat ran a huge sale offering return flights from London Gatwick to Toronto from £299.
- British Airways launched a black and white sale that lasted until 3rd December across its network, with city breaks from £99 per person, business class flights to Nashville from £1,595 return and flights to Las Vegas from £399.
These deals were just the beginning. Hundreds of flight deals were released over the Black Friday period.
In 2020 we think there will be just as many flights on offer as last year. With the world slowly recovering from the global pandemic and international travel restrictions being lifted, it’s going to be a great time to get some huge savings on your next holiday. Remember to check government guidelines before travelling, though.
Here are some of the best places to find cheap flight deals this Black Friday.

Deals and offers on travel
Not everyone likes flying, and sometimes jumping on the train, ferry, bus or in your own car to your chosen holiday destination is all part of the trip. Last year, we saw a fair few travel deals that went down a storm.
- Eurostar offered one-way tickets to Paris, Brussels or Lille for just £25.
- Customers could save up to £200 per booking with Railbookers on trips to Spain and Venice.
With local staycations being recommended over international travel this year, we predict that the majority of national rail services, as well as some European travel companies, will be pushing out huge Black Friday deals for train travel around the UK. Fish and chips on Brighton beach, anyone?

After the events of the last six months, the hotel and accommodation industry is going to need a massive pick-me-up - we predict in the form of mammoth Black Friday discounts. In 2019 we saw some amazing Black Friday deals that weren’t to be missed, and we think this year will be even bigger and better.
