Black Friday – Best Travel Deals

Card at the ready – it’s Black Friday!


If you got a quid for every time you’ve seen the words ‘Black Friday’ today, you’d probably have enough to pay for your next holiday and then some. I am pretty cynical when it comes to Black Friday (Well, cynical about most things really!).

As a marketing ploy, I’m not sure how well Black Friday works. Surely a lot of people don’t buy anything in the beginning of November in the hope of grabbing a mega-deal on Black Friday.  Though this year, I have been getting emails about Black Friday since the start of the month. Infuriating. A lot of the ‘offers’ on all sorts of products are not really that fabulous when you look at them closer. Free postage is not a special offer. Free postage should be a a bloody human right! £25 off a several thousand pound holiday is not a special offer. Christ, I’d probably give you £25 off if you asked nicely and told me a good knock knock joke.

So, instead of bombarding you with a hundred posts about travel bargains galore, I’ve popped my favourite offers below for you to cast your eyes over. If anything tickles your pickle, let me know! I offer full ABTA and ATOL protection, loads of personal knowledge and I’m available when you need me.
