Finding Black Friday flight deals in 2021

Saving money on airline travel is a savvy way to start your next trip, and it's easy when you know how. Black Friday is a great opportunity for travelers to find cheap flights but with so many deals to choose from, it can feel overwhelming. Read on for tips and tools to help you get started.

1. Search by month, not day

If you’ve got the “where” of your getaway decided but have some room on the “when,” then search your prospective locale via the ‘Cheapest Month’ view to see the best prices that are available to you. By searching across the entire month, you’ll be shown the cheapest flight prices in a calendar format so you can quickly see the most cost-effective days to reach your destination. As Black Friday flight deals are released, you’ll see them on the results page along with other flight options.

When is Black Friday 2021?

This year, Black Friday will fall on Friday, November 26th. While the date of Black Friday is a great time to get travel deals, airlines often release sales on flight tickets in the days before and after Black Friday. So, it’s a good idea to keep your eyes peeled (and Price Alerts on) all week.

Is Black Friday a good day to buy airline tickets?
