Travel Tuesday 2021: How to score the best flight deals

Travel Tuesday, which comes on the heels of Black Friday and Cyber Monday, is a fairly recent phenomenon during which travel companies offer unbeatable deals on flights, hotels and car rentals.

With so many sales and discounts offered around this time of year, finding the right one can feel overwhelming. So we’ve put together a simple guide to help you find, compare and book travel for your next adventure.

1. Sign up for alerts and let flight deals come to you

Got your eye on Anguilla’s immaculate beaches or Slovenia’s Michelin-starred gastronomy? Travel Tuesday deals offer the perfect opportunity to book your next adventure at a lower price. And, you don’t have to spend hours tracking down optimal fares—we’ll do that part for you. Create a Price Alert in Skyscanner for flight itineraries to your favorite destination(s), and we’ll check the fares and notify you when prices go up or down. If the price is right, start packing!


2. Look at months, not days

For serious deals this Travel Tuesday, try broadening your search. Skyscanner’s whole month view allows you to compare flight prices across an entire month so you don’t need to “play around with the dates” to find the cheapest days to fly. Or, if you’re flexible on when you travel, use Skyscanner’s “cheapest month” tool to see what time of the year has the lowest airfare. It’s simple, saves time and, more importantly, gets you closer to your next dream destination.


3. Search everywhere for deals to unexpected destinations

Get inspiration for your next international trip by seeing flight prices to top destinations. Tell us your departure point and we’ll show you amazing Travel Tuesday deals anywhere in the world. Use the everywhere feature with specific dates in mind or choose a whole month. Simply type in ‘everywhere’ as your ‘to’ destination and we’ll put super cool destinations on your radar, ranked in order of cost.


4. Book flexible tickets

A flight deal is worthless if you don’t end up using your tickets. Secure your Travel Tuesday deal by choosing ‘flexible tickets‘ when booking your next trip. Flexible tickets allow for changes or cancellations with little or no fee, making life much easier when travel plans are disrupted. You can also apply the flexible filter when searching for hotels and car rentals so you only get results that offer free cancellation policies.


5. Know where you can go and what you need to get there

What’s worse than travel restrictions? Learning about them after you get to the airport! We know that it can be hard to keep up with the changing travel restrictions and requirements, but we’ve made it easier.
