Even if you were traveling over the weekend and missed out on the best Black Friday sales (and flight and luggage deals), we’ve got good news for you: Not only are many of those sales on hotels and tours still on, but also plenty of companies are launching brand-new deals on December 2 (and often running for a few days beyond that).
We scoured the internet to curate a list of the very best Cyber Monday deals from hotels and tour operators out there this year. In fact, we may be booking a few of these ourselves . . .
