The best Black Friday holiday and travel deals for 2022

Black Friday and Cyber Monday are ideal for picking up a host of holiday bargains, some of which rival travel deals in the January sales.

From hotel break offers to flight deals, and days out discounts to weekend break reductions, we’ve rounded up the very best Black Friday holiday deals for 2022.

Whether you’re looking to lock in your 2023 holiday now or want to fit in a last-minute escape before the end of the year, you can make huge savings during the huge shopping event.

For 2022, Black Friday officially takes place on Friday 25 November and Cyber Monday is set for Monday 28 November. However, many companies are starting their sales early, with some including Secret Escapes, already attracting travellers to book Black Friday holiday deals early – we’ve already spotted up to 68 per cent off getaways on the website.

From European city breaks to far-flung beach escapes and luxury staycations, there are plenty of trips to save on this Black Friday and Cyber Monday. Here’s our pick of the best places to browse for discounts…
