JourneyWoman's Things She Loves: Travel Deal Tuesday!

Published 3 months ago • 5 min read

Hi JourneyWoman,

Have you heard of Travel Deal Tuesday? If you have any travel plans for the upcoming year, this is information you don't want to miss! Travel Deal Tuesday occurs annually on the day after Cyber Monday (November 28 this year). On this day, the travel industry offers some amazing discounts on various aspects of travel, including airfare, hotels, activities, tours, transportation, and even travel gear. To help you navigate these deals, we've compiled a guide featuring our preferred booking platforms and excellent offers from some of the partners in our Women’s Travel Directory.

If you have a trip in mind, check prices today (we always suggest using incognito mode or a VPN like NordVPN) and then again tomorrow during the sales. You may find some real savings!

Some things to keep in mind:

  • Be ready to purchase a deal as soon as you see it - most of these prices will only be online during Travel Tuesday;
  • Check prices from our recommended providers below, or your favourite travel booking sites;
  • Always buy travel insurance to cover changes to your plans (compare rates here); and
  • Make sure you read the fine print for any blackout days and pay attention to cancellation policies.

(Please note: this email includes affiliate links, but we only ever recommend items we think are relevant for you and we’ve tried ourselves. If you decide to book travel through one of these links, we will receive a small commission that doesn’t add any cost to the purchase of an item and helps us maintain our website and other services to you!)
