You can really go places with Black Friday, Cyber Monday deals
Black Friday and Cyber Monday are almost here, which means it will be time to curl up in your pajamas with a turkey sandwich and snag online travel deals you can’t resist — like that third helping of mashed potatoes you couldn’t pass up. Here you’ll find a cornucopia of tempting deals — sunny strands to beat the winter blues in Florida, Mexico, and the Caribbean; staycation steals in Boston and New England; and European getaways, too. The gravy: In addition to significant room rate discounts, perks like spa credits and wine will also tease. Note that some of the offers are available only on Cyber Monday (Nov. 26), but many of the deals begin on Black Friday and extend right through Cyber Monday, making it more like a Cyber Weekend event. Also trending this year are some deals that extend to Giving Tuesday on Nov. 27, when proceeds from bookings are donated to charities and causes. Tip: Always read the fine print — blackout periods may apply, as well as other restrictions like nonrefundable, advance purchase, nontransferable, and minimum stays.
