Other Black Friday travel deals you should check out ….

As well as the British Airways deal covered in my lead article today, here are some other Black Friday travel offers.

This is by no means a comprehensive list – I have only listed deals where the company involved got in touch to tell me what they were doing.

I especially recommend the hotels.com competition in case you get lucky!

Hotels:

Hotels.com – I mentioned this earlier in the week.  They are running a ‘mystery coupon’ competition – enter your email address and you will be sent a coupon worth up to 99% off your next booking (maximum spend £1,000)!   The special page to enter is here.

Lancaster London / K West (nr Westfield) hotels – 50% off for 24 hours only, book from 9am only on their own sites here and here

LateRooms.com – exclusive hotel deals which will be available via this link

Melia Hotels – 30% to 45% discounts depending on city (London is 45% which includes the funky ME London – photo below – and the more traditional White House), booking is via this link and runs to 30th November for stays until February.

Flights:

Singapore Airlines – discounted economy fares, from £510 to Kuala Lumpur.  See here for details.

Air New Zealand – special deals to Los Angeles for December to March travel – £399 in Economy, £899 in Premium Economy and £2,099 in Business.  You can see my reviews of the ANZ seats here.  You can book here.  On Monday, they will be offering 100 seats to LA for just £199.

Other:

  1. Sooooo bored of Black Friday ….

    I never thought I would ever type these words but ‘roll on Monday’ !

  2. You mean roll on cyber-Monday

  3. 12% here from hotels.com. Given that they hand out 10% vouchers like candy an extra 2% is hardly life changing

    • I tried 4 email addressess, 4 devices to register and always received the same 8% off coupon…..scam rather then great promo

      • 8 and 9% offers here on my 2 email addresses. Also started getting their newsletter shortly thereafter so had to unsubscribe from that too!

        Interestingly finally found a use for the ‘AH loyalty platinum’ rate – it genuinely did show me availability for room types that were not otherwise available for sale. Rates the same as other standard rates but nice to see it does open up extra availability.

    • Peter Taysum says:

      7% fair enough, but won’t get me to book, you get ten per cent as you point out, and I prefer to take that and not reward nights, as I dont use them enough…

  4. Sort of Black Friday related, Hilton are offering a direct status match.No status challenge required.
    (Also, Hilton seem to be taking on a few hotels in the UK, including the ex Thistle Glasgow.)

  5. I got 10% off from hotels.com. Not a big deal, as that sort of saving comes around quite often.

  6. Interstate who manage around seventy IHG & Hilton branded hotels around the UK are having their own Black Friday sale through their own branded website called Hoteldeals.

    Rooms are available from £39 at selected locations. When booking though it takes you to the IHG website and the rates (going from previous sales they have had) all normally count as qualifying ones.

  7. Slightly OT, Black Friday related. I’m looking for a new laptop. Preferably 15″ with a fast processor. Any decent avios earning opportunities I could combine this with?

    • If you can get what you want from Argos, buy the equivalent amount of Argos gift vouchers in Tesco, getting 150 clubcard points per £50 = 360 Avios + whatever you get for credit card spend.

      • Thanks but it would’ve cost me £80 more at Argos + Don’t the Argos gift cards take 24 hours to activate?

        • I have posted a deal to you with more than 1 link so it awaits approval.

          Get your laptop half price.

    • Thanks Squills!

  8. Count yourself lucky I got 7%

  9. Hilton are doing 30% off US stays, starts Monday

  10. Accor are running a UK sale until Cyber Mondays – essentially the same rates as for Happy Mondays, but the rates are valid all week until 28 Feb (I think). A great deal if you can find availability for where you want to go.

  11. barafear799 says:

    Got 9% and 8% on my two email accounts.
    Maybe I can use them both to get 98%?

    A bit of a let down really – I am finding that the big chains who sell hotel rooms (eg. hotels.com, expedia, booking.com etc) never really do many worthwhile offers……maybe just my own experience?

  12. Managed to bag 2 of the 100 LA flights – £408 in total for 2

  13. 2x LA flights booked with Air New Zealand yesterday £408

  14. A little belated…I was lucky enough to bag one of the ten 99% off vouchers from hotels.com – wanted to say a big thank you! Would never have entered if HFP hadn’t flagged this.

  15. or John Lewis with free two years warranty and after ales service.

    After ales service sounds great. First they take you to the kebab shop, get you a taxi home, help you unlock the front door (big problem for me after ales) and get your pyjamas on you…
