Want to travel somewhere in the next year? Mark your calendar! The best day to score a flight deal, Travel Deal Tuesday, is returning November 27.
- If you’re hoping to score a travel bargain in the post-Thanksgiving sales, the best time to shop isn’t on Black Friday or Cyber Monday. You’re most likely to find a flight deal on Travel Deal Tuesday.
- We analyzed historical flight pricing data and found that fare sale activity significantly spikes on the Tuesday after Thanksgiving.
- Last year, we sent more deal notifications on Travel Deal Tuesday than Black Friday and Cyber Monday combined. In 2016, we saw fare sale activity spike by 2X the normal volume.
- The airlines offer major discounts because travel demand tends to die down following Thanksgiving. Most travelers have already booked their holiday airfare, but haven’t started planning their winter getaways yet.
