More Black Friday deals – flights, Priority Pass, railcards, suits, parking, more

Links on Head for Points may support the site by paying a commission.  See here for all partner links.

Here is another batch of Black Friday travel deals we have been notified about in advance.

We take no responsibility if these deals have changed or don’t work as promised.  Remember that we are often sent links which are not designed to go live until the day itself and we can’t test them in advance.


Amazon has been great at communicating their Black Friday deals and we covered a few over on Shopper Points.

Priority Pass

If you’ve been thinking of getting a Priority Pass airport lounge card, there is a discount today.

You will save 40% on Standard memberships, 25% on Standard Plus memberships, and 25% on Prestige memberships.  Full details should hopefully be showing on the Priority Pass site here.


Opodo has released a money off code for flights and holidays.

Using the promotional code BLACK on the Opodo website will give you £35 off a flight booking of £550+, or £120 off flight + hotel booking when spending £1,200+

This offer is only valid on round trips starting in the UK.


These deals always prove popular with HFP readers.  You can save £5 on a Friends & Family Railcard and £5 on a 16-25 Railcard.

You need to use code BLK5AF and buy via the Railcard website here.

Virgin Atlantic

Virgin Atlantic sent us one list of Black Friday deals and then followed it up – presumably after they’d seen the BA deals – with a second list with lower prices!  Fares in economy are starting from £320.

The Black Friday deals page is here.


Iberia has some good holiday deals with economy flights with the lead offer being two nights in Madrid for £159 per person. Flights and holidays must be booked by tonight for travel between 10th January and 21st March 2018. The Iberia Black Friday page is here.


Meanwhile, Iberia’s sister company Vueling is offering 490,000 discounted seats at prices from €29.99.

The English-language sale page is here.

Remember that, now Vueling Club is live, you now earn Avios – based on what you spend – when flying Vueling.  Full details are in this HfP article.

Air New Zealand

Air New Zealand has two great offers:

From 9am today there will be 100 seats to Los Angeles from London for only £175 return per person.

From 10am there will be 50 seats to New Zealand via LA for only £399 per person.

The booking page is here.  Do you realistically have a chance of grabbing one of these?  Probably not …..

Charles Tyrwhitt

Avios partner Charles Tyrwhitt is offering 15% off everything site wide and 20% off suits. Standard delivery is free.

You must use the code BLACK at checkout to get the discount. The homepage is here.

Remember that you will earn 4 Avios per £1 you spend at Charles Tyrwhitt, even during Black Friday.


Finnair has launched their Black Friday deals yesterday afternoon.  The website to book is here.  The deals seem to be Economy only and are worth £50 per person off most of their long-haul Asian routes.

Official Gatwick Parking via myGatwick

myGatwick members can save 25% off your Gatwick Airport parking.

You must log into your myGatwick account, enter your flight details and then click ‘more info’ and ‘take me there’ in the 25% off voucher to book parking at the discounted rate.

This offer expires midnight tonight.


You might recall Rob’s review of membership based private jet company JetSmarter.

If you are interested in a membership you can get a one year membership for just £9,406 if you purchase it today.  JetSmarter’s homepage is here.

Oman Air

Oman Air has released a promotion code for economy flights from London Heathrow and Manchester. For example, Dubai is priced from £299 and Muscat from just £369.

You must use the code AFFL2017 on the Oman Air website to see the discounted price.


Europcar is offering up to 33% off this Black Friday weekend.

The offer expires at midnight on Monday.

Do keep an eye on the comments to our Black Friday articles as I’m sure readers will drop in other special deals they spot.

    Love my Samsonite case. Got it on eBay for £200 less than the RRP at the time. Good lesson to the seller as well – don’t have an auction for high value goods end at midnight on a school night.

    The good lady wife wasn’t best pleased as it wasn’t for her. 🙁

  • JamesB says:

    OT for ‘Miles’ and other real or clubcard pets that are still alive and well 5000 bonus nectar points for pet insurance at Sainsburys Bank. So far, I’m not seeing it on the bank home page therefore the offer might be targeted only so check your nectar offers. For the nectar points, nectar discount and 12 months for 9 offer it could be a good deal for those pets that need fed and watered. For those with only virtual pets the points are paid after 60 days but will obviously only work if there is a monthly payment plan. Finally, for those with neither real or virtual pets, I suppose it might make a novel Christmas present for grandma’s rottweiler…

    Taittinger NV is £20.25 at Tesco if you buy 6 (online or in store). Which blows the amazon price out of the water.

    • Tom says:

      Agree, other offers out there which would be better, and Nicolas Feuillatte is only £18 a bottle at Tesco. Personally I like Lidl’s Comte de Senneval champagne, which at £10 is a bargain, and when it comes down to £7 a bottle it gets even better! Doesn’t get me clubcard points but then again does get me 3 bottles for the price of one bottle of Lanson or the like, which is handy in Champagne season.

      A different Tom!

    Rob – Black Friday popularity really showing that the site is needing ungrading, getting lots of 503 errrors…

    I’d be interested in the Oman sale as I like their product. But their economy and biz seats are not available from my brief search, just the regular prices.

  • Ramona says:

    myGatwick – I’ve logged in but the offer is for -10% rather than -25%. Do I have to add a discount code?

    • Rob says:

      According to what I was sent, it would show automatically when logged in. No idea what is going on there – perhaps they changed their minds or are having trouble getting it live?

  • RAPC says:

    I haven’t done long haul economy in years, but got 3 flights to LAX on the Air New Zealand deal this morning. Worked out at less than £150 each including the £25 hold fee (to grab the seats quickly) thanks to them applying a discount to our 3 year old. Happy to go economy at that price!

    • Rob says:

      That is a result. I’m impressed that it is tougher to get into the HFP party than to buy a sub-£150 flight ticket to LA 🙂
