When you’re searching for Black Friday deals, the best thing to do is be flexible. The more flexible you are on dates and destinations, the better deals you’ll find. Here are a few more tips to find good deals:

  • Consider flying out of further-away airports; they may have bigger discounts on certain routes.
  • If you find a great deal but don’t love the destination, consider where else you can travel nearby (i.e. Fly to NYC but hop on the train to Philly/Boston/Washington D.C.!)
