We’re back!

Black Friday and Cyber Monday are upon us!

Black Friday and Cyber Monday bring serious hype to the travel world, and in the last few years, they’ve actually delivered. But in 2022, the word is “scarcity”. Every brand now shouts “sale”, but few really bring value worth jumping on.

Add in red hot travel demand and it’s even tougher to separate what’s fabulous from what’s just a “sale” in name, and name only. In an attempt to bring value to you and to save you from the thousands of emails marked “deal”, we’ve curated a list of the best and nothing but the best in travel discounts. That 10% ain’t gunna cut it.

Black Friday is November 25th this year, but many deals are already here! This page will be updated as only the best travel deals are released, so keep checking back and be sure to bookmark this page.

For now, take a browse through some early launches! In a few instances, we’re not allowed to share the details of the offers yet, but have added the airline, hotel or company to the page, so you know something is coming!

2022 Black Friday & Cyber Monday Hotel Deals

With so many people traveling, 2022 isn’t yet wowing with Black Friday deals. While previous years often topped out around 25-30% in “real” savings, this year we are still left hoping for better numbers.

Oh, and hot tip – online travel agencies like Expedia and Hotels.com can be found down below this section in the online travel agency deals area. Enjoy! For now, there are some placeholders here, but these will fill up as the days approach!

Viceroy Hotels

Viceroy is going where few others are, not only with legitimate 35% off deals, but flexible cancellation too. Most other hotel groups will give you a bargain but no flex, so this is a huge differentiator allowing people to jump in on a sale, but cancel if needed.

Check out the Viceroy Cyber Week Offers. Oh — and another classy move? These deals include late checkout!

Accor & Fairmont Hotels

Accor is out with a great sale, offering 25% off rates, plus up to 5% more for Accor ALL members. The program is highly underrated, and who doesn’t like an extra 5%?

So far, offers are region centric, and only the North America Offers are live, but they are great value if you have trips in the books.

IHG Hotels & IHG Rewards

Following in the same vein as Marriott, IHG says this year will be the biggest year ever for cyber discounts. Offer details remain scarce, but the landing page is now live and worth keeping a look out for! So far, we’re not seeing the magic…

Check out IHG’s Black Friday & Cyber Week Deals.

Hyatt & World Of Hyatt

So far, Hyatt’s best offer is on points. Members can get a 25% bonus on points purchased, and with so many ways to create huge savings, this is pretty grand. Check out the Points Sale.

You can keep up with the Hyatt Offers Page, here.

Radisson Hotels

Continuing the theme of savings without too much creative excitement, Radisson is offering 30% off rates booked until November 29th, for travel all the way until the end of 2022. While simple discounts aren’t that exciting, the flexibility of an entire new year is!

Check out the Radisson Cyber Week page.

Fairmont Hotels & Resorts

As part of the wider Accor ALL Loyalty Program, Fairmont is offering 25% off in North America, but a few hotels are doing even better. The Fairmont specific offers can be viewed here.

2022 Black Friday & Cyber Monday Flight Deals

Black Friday and Cyber Monday are starting early this year, and some offers will be out early to beat the big rush. Best advice? Have your heart set on what you want, and jump at the first fully, truly convincing offer — but only if you know it’s exactly what you were looking for, and well beyond what you were ready to pay.

Here’s a collection of everything that’s live, or coming. At least one major airline told us the best deals will begin early. We’ll update as exciting new offers pop up over the next couple weeks, but here’s a few early offers.

Some of the best new flight deals!

SKYTEAM (Deals can be booked via the KLM website as well)

TAP

Etihad Airways

Ethiad Airways is offering some excellent Black Friday deals in Buisness Class.

Here are two exampels:

There’s a dedicated Black Friday website for each country to different destinations, we list them here below:

Aer Lingus

Aer Lingus is offering a good Black Friday Deal, with €100 discount on economy and €200 discount on Business Class for return flights to North America.

Discount is valid if you book by midnight 29 November 2022.

With this discount, you can book a business class Round Trip from Rome to New York for only 1069€.

A nonstop Round Trip in Economy class from Manchester to Orlando is available for only £333.

You can check all offers on Aer Lingus.

Level (Iberia Group)

Level has incredible offers between Spain and the USA or Latin America in both directions. Fares start at just €125 one way between Barcelona and New York, which is about as low as transatlantic pricing ever goes. Many other cities are available. You can check out all the offers on the dedicated deal page.

Singapore Air

Singapore Air is offering excellent pricing to top destinations from the airlines US departure points. $2199 round trip in Singapore’s stunning business cabin between New York and Frankfurt is utterly great pricing and these offers in all cabins shouldn’t be missed.

La Compagnie

La Compagnie is a boutique “all business class” airline you may have heard of, and they now fly between New York, Paris, Nice and Milan.

The airline is offering $2300 round trip fares between the city pairs in either direction, which makes for a comfy and boutique way to get to Europe, or the USA. You can peep the offers here.

British Airways

In a way, British Airways almost started ‘Black Friday’ in the UK. The airline has generally offered incredible fares around the US Thanksgiving Holiday, and there’s lots of hope this year that deals will be better.

Keep your eyes peeled on this section in the days to come, and for now, browse the best holiday and flight deal offers and some early flight only “highlights”.

Virgin Atlantic

Two years ago, Virgin Atlantic rocked worlds with £999 (circa $1300) round trip business class fares to just about anywhere anyone wanted to go. There’s a lot of hope and hype that this year will follow.

Already, there are £297 round trip flights in economy! Virgin Atlantic has launched a dedicated Black Friday page, and we’ll update this page with any screaming deals that simply must be booked, or considered!

Whatever cabin you’re booking, a promo code with up to £100 off can be uncovered once you hit the Black Friday Deal Page! USA for under £300 in economy isn’t bad!

Cathay Pacific

Cathay Pacific wants you see (or save) green on Black Friday, with its Green Friday deals. And in fact, you don’t have to wait until Friday to enjoy them. These offers are now live for both the UK and US markets, with flight deals all over the world.

The best offers involve travel for two, where the second person flies at a deep discount but there are many solo traveler offers too.

Here’s highlights from the USA and the UK offers as well. Let’s hope these get better as offers are unveiled.

Air Canada

Air Canada is offering great fares — but also up to 100% bonus points on flights booked as part of Black Friday. The Aeroplan currency is amazing, which makes these very very tempting.

This is a really cool sale with something for everyone, in every cabin, and it can all be found via this dedicated Air Canada Black Friday Page.

Black Friday 2022 Online Travel Agency Deals

While booking hotels with online travel agencies typically means you won’t earn points from hotels, sometimes the savings are too good for that to matter!

Online travel agencies always are on top of their games come Black Friday & Cyber Monday, and we’ll update as deals launch.

Hotels.com

A perennial GSTP favorite for booking hotels, thanks to simplicity and value, Hotels.com is offering double stamps for its loyalty program and 30% off or more, on hotels all over the world. This is a promotion not to be missed!

30% off on Hotels.com can often bring prices even lower than what’s found direct elsewhere, so be sure to comparison shop, but with double nights added on as a bonus, this is very compelling!

Expedia

Not to be outdone by sister company Hotels.com, Expedia has its own 30% off sale, with up to 4X points in Expedia Rewards too. Always comparison shop, but if you don’t care about hotel points and are happy with the room you booked at the time of your booking, this can be a great way to save!

2021 Black Friday & Cyber Monday Travel Gear And Experience Deals

From great phones to the best luggage on the planet, cyber week tends to offer great opportunities to grab travel accessories worth having. Here’s a few we’re liking so far…

Away Travel Luggage

People tend to love Away, GSTP included, and select products are 40% off right now, which is meaningful savings for a premium luggage brand. You can check out UK sales here, and US here.

Blade

So far, Blade has resisted the urge to make their $149 round trip helicopter rides between New York Airports and NYC cheaper than $149, but they’ve slashed prices on passes and other features between New York and the Hamptons, as well as other cities.

Google

As a GSTP favorite for the Pixel Phone, hence the amazing Instagram pictures, a sale on Google Products is always a welcomed addition. This year Google has discounts on many product ranges, including Nest cameras to ensure your “nest” is safe while you are away!

  1. Would be nice if Qatar could finally run a flash sale on black Friday!! I’m looking for an ex EU return to Sydney in Business! Give us a shout if anything appears!

    1. Qatar have been doing great deals out of ARN to SYD for the past few weeks.. use the code QRFFP19 to get up to 12% off

          1. Gilbert we are dying to know, please can you update us… I need to buy a ticket for Christmas. do you think Qatar are going to have a sale?

  2. Thanks Gilbert once again you have provided some unique deals and insights that are different from others. I know you’re not earning on all of these so thank you for all your hard work and it is much appreciated.

  3. Of course, I missed that VPN Black Friday deal that you mentioned, but I found this discount code somewhere on Reddit nordvpn.org/1yoffer. I think it is perfect for travelers because NordVPN’s advanced features make it one of the most reliable services for bypassing VPN blocks. It, therefore, comes as a surprise how easy the app is to use!

    1. It’s definitely for today! Perhaps it’s because we’re early here on timing in the UK. Will confirm and get back to you, but I’d say give it a whirl again in a bit!

  4. Hi Gil, On the Radisson offer, I can’t tell from the terms and conditions if the secret code discount has to be used at the hotel where you received it. Does anyone know?

    1. I’m keeping an eye out for you! 50/50 whether there’s anything compelling this year. Dubai is experiencing tremendous demand since being added to UK travel corridor list, so less pressure than other carriers/destinations are facing.

  5. This page never updates! You said one major airline would have deals beginning today, Nov. 22nd! Well, there is no link nor mention here of what that would be. OTOH, Cathay Pacific did send me an email about their Black Friday sale beginning today. Thank goodness I’m on their mailing list and not having to rely on this page.

      1. Thanks Gilbert, maybe they’ll surprise us! I seem to remember them doing something for FC in 2019 as well as 2020 but maybe not.

  6. Love Virgin and was hoping to book something, but can’t find anything approaching a deal to NYC. Prices the same as last week and very very high (looking at mid March, hardly peak). I think I feel my allegiance slipping. Not sure it’s worth holding out for a Boxing Day sale and potentially missing a better deal with JetBlue or someone in the meantime.

    1. I’ve definitely got some needs for a good deal between now and March, and I’ll definitely go with any carrier that brings it to me! Underwhelmed with most airline offers so far.

      1. Glad you said that! Considering giving JetBlue a go especially – fun to try something new anyway. Not sure trying to keep VS Silver is worth it – realistically can’t see myself doing a ton of travel in 2022 either. Not compared to 2019/the plans I had for 2020.

  7. Airfares seem High at the moment with low capacity on the Asia routes

    all the Qatar deals have dried up in premium cabin .

  8. you sell yourself to the devil, gilbert? you need the commish? i checked all the hotels and reservations i have made against the black friday deals and i would be spending 30% more today. i will stick with gary leff here whose opinion is to not be sucked in by the term black friday. apparently you have

    1. Are you high? It’s the only way to possible explain this level of hatred over simply passing on what hotels and airlines are offering. You don’t like, you don’t buy.

    2. Jeffrey, get a life. Look around and perhaps check other sites as well like premium flights. All will confirm this is a rather underwhelming Black Friday. While we are all looking for deals your trolling makes you look stupid at best.

  9. Stirling work as always Gilbert, keep up the good work 👍🏾

    Just a little note that the Cathay Pacific links seem to be dead links.
