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.

    How does the Priority Pass offer work? It says 6 pounds be for Standard Plus when I click on the link above. But it can’t be. That must be 6 pounds of reduction, right?

  • Sam says:

    Worth mentioning for those looking at Easter Holidays, a few friends got great offers on Finnair’s Krabi flights (Tue/Wed from Hel, good connections to LHR) over Easter – might be worth looking in conjunction with above £50 off for even better deals?

  • meta says:

    Not exactly Black Friday deal, but vente privee buy Avios deal is back. The usual prices.

    • Delbert says:

      Hi meta. Could you provide the link please. Can’t find it for love nor money.

      • meta says:

        I use the app, but it is on the French version of the site. Can’t really figure out how to share the link from the app (if there is an option).

      • Delbert says:

        Many thanks, Harry and meta.

  • Crafty says:

    OT: Number of people (especially TRH1) reporting success using Tesco MOCs to buy Amazon gift cards. I have a £6 off £30 MOC, it states clearly on the back not eligible for gift cards, and the cashier refused to do it. What am I missong? Can you do it at self service checkout – how do you then activate the gift card?

    • Rob says:

      That wording is meant to apply to Tesco gift cards, not third party gift cards. You can’t do it on a self service till. General advice is to buy some groceries and throw in the gift card too, you shouldn’t have any trouble then. If scanned, the MOC is accepted for third party gift cards.

      • mark2 says:

        and choose a suitable cashier: I go for young or old man from preference; not a woman who has just come back to work. Don’t say ‘can I use this?’; just give it to them.

        • Genghis says:

          …and if they don’t like the look of it, just say “scan it and see if it works”.

        • Alan says:

          Plus get them to sub-total after each card (although most seem to know to do that now).

          I put cards at front of the shopping to get any issues out the way with things not scanning (giving me time to nip back for another if required).

          Note that at Morrison’s you can use self-scan fine, but need to put something else on the scales to add weight! Or, as happened to me last time, have a helpful cashier that puts it into store mode when you’ve got £1k worth of Amazon cards to push through 😀

    • the real harry1 says:

      yep you got unlucky, Crafty

      just choose a different cashier

      I haven’t been stopped – won’t say never – certainly not in the last 20-odd uses like this

      as others said, a young guy cashier is almost never going to even blink, he prides himself on activating the Amazon card efficiently etc

      stick the Amazon card on first with a few groceries to follow, he’ll forget all about money off coupon rules when you come to pay

  • Cate says:

    Singapore airlines up to 30% off flights from LHR plus 20% bonus miles shopping through their portal.

  • Boris says:

    Bagged 2nd time in 3 years for the NZ LHR-LAX flights – followed by a panic call after realising my title was Mrs instead of Mr – luckily they were alot more accomodating than alot of other airlines you feature on HFP 🙂

    Tip is to hold the fare – £25 – didn;t have that 3 years ago but missed out last year because of this. £200 for a return to LA – happy with that

    • Anna says:

      Titles aren’t shown on UK passports so you should never have to pay to change this on your ticket. First and last names are all that count – I once got to the US and back with my middle name spelled wrong! Delta Airlines wanted £65 to change it so I decided to risk it and there were no problems.

      • Funtime says:

        Got me laughing.

        My middle name is Jabez, thank my late father for that.

        For years this was shown as Javel on my passport until I thought time to do something about it.

        Many flights to Europe, Africa and North America travelled on it. Once you’re in the system, you’re in the system.

        Go figure USA and I say that as someone that will have done all 50 States next summer.

        And no, I’m still a relatively young male man. In my mind anyway.

  • Boris says:

    Hi Anna totally understand and aware of it but wouln’t allow me to change gender in passport information – wasn’t comfortable trying to persuade LA’s finest that it was a mistake 🙂

  • Delbert says:

    Just pulled the trigger on my second deal of the day. Apple giving away £80 gift card for iPad Pro purchase (as well as a couple of other models). Been meaning to update the good lady wife’s iPad Air 2 for some time.

    I’m tempted by the iPhone X so that’s £80 off and some money back on the sale of the iPad Air 2 and iPhone 7 Plus.

    Don’t get too many opportunities at a discount from Apple so was worth my jumping into today.

    • Delbert says:

      I know there are dissenters out there but there are some good deals to be had on Black Friday. I’m quite content with the two deals today as they were high value, rarely discounted and items I was going to eventually purchase anyway. £120 in savings. Job done.

      • Delbert says:

        Oh, and hit the 2k spend on the Amex Nectar credit card. That’ll pay for the Christmas shop, eventually.
