Finding flight deals is easy when you know how. The Black Friday sales can be overwhelming with so many deals to choose from. With our tips and tools below, you can get the most out of this year’s travel sales and find the very best flights to dream destinations. Here’s how.

1. Search by month, not day

Already got a destination in mind but flexible on dates? Use our ‘cheapest month’ view to see all your options in one place.

2. Find the best deals to anywhere in the world

Flexible on the destination? Use our ‘Explore Everywhere’ feature to discover the best deals from your chosen airport to anywhere in the world. Fancy skiing in Shahdag? Bathing in one of Birštona’s mineral spas? Or trekking the Trilho dos Pescadores in unexplored Portugal? You can find deals to under-the-radar destinations like these by searching for flights to ‘Everywhere’. You might just discover your new favourite place.


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

We know that it can be hard to keep track of the ever-changing travel restrictions across the world, but we’ve made it that little bit easier. To find out more about the latest restrictions in your chosen destination, or to simply check which countries are open to the UK, you can use our live Covid-19 travel map which is updated daily.

If you’ve already decided where to go but are feeling a bit confused about what you need to get there, our Covid-19 travel hub will take you through everything you need to prepare for your trip; from vaccine certificates to PCR tests and travel insurance.


4. Book flexible tickets, enjoy peace of mind

With travel as unpredictable as it is right now, using our ‘flexible tickets’ filter means that we will only show you airlines that offer flexible booking options. That way, you can easily make changes to your booking if the unexpected happens — offering peace of mind that you can get your trip back on track. And if you want to go one step further, pair it up with our travel insurance as an extra way to protect your trip and travel with confidence.


5. Don’t clock watch. Set up price alerts and let the deals come to you

Once you’ve found your favourite route, look out for the Price Alert icon so we can let you know if the price goes up or down. Most Black Friday flight deals won’t last, so if you want to get ahead of the curve, it’s worth setting up a few flight alerts on your chosen routes before the sales begin as there could be major price drops. This year, Black Friday takes place on 26 November, but many airlines start their sales a few days before. 


Can’t wait until Black Friday?
