Avid Travelers: Don’t Miss These Travel Tuesday Flight, Hotel, and Cruise Deals

If you didn’t get all your travel shopping done on Black Friday or Cyber Monday, there are some great airfares, hotel rates, and cruise discounts available on the Tuesday after Thanksgiving. Here’s what’s on offer.

While Black Friday and Cyber Monday are chock-full of tempting travel and flight discounts, Travel Deal Tuesday or Travel Tuesday, as it’s become known, has actually become one of the best days of the year to score a travel deal, according to the flight booking site and app Hopper.

After analyzing pricing data from the past decade, Hopper found that the Tuesday after Thanksgiving, aka Travel Tuesday, which falls on November 28 this year, has the highest volume of deals during the postholiday sales week, a promotional period that runs from Black Friday (the Friday after Thanksgiving) through the following week (also known as Cyber Week), and even into early December.

So why the increase in travel deals? Hayley Berg, an economist at Hopper, explained in a statement that demand for travel is actually pretty low at the end of November and early December, when most people have already booked their holiday travel but haven’t yet started booking much for the coming year. Travel companies try to entice them to do so by rolling out attractive deals.

Here are the Travel Tuesday deals that have been rolled out.
