Black Friday is here again.  With an overwhelming amount of travel-related Black Friday deals, we’ve decided to put all the exciting ones – or at least the ones we were told about – together to save you time whilst also saving money.

Over at Shopper Points, we cover some general Amazon deals in this article.  If you are buying anything at Amazon today, we’re always grateful if you start your shop by clicking on our Amazon link here as we receive a small commission and it helps keep the site ticking over – thank you.

This article focuses on hotel deals with a second article on other travel related ‘stuff’.  A third article covers the British Airways deals and a very good Avis car rental deal worth 5,000 Avios. is doing a Purple Friday again instead of Black Friday. As we couldn’t find any other purple deals, they are allowed to appear as the first offer on our Black Friday list.

The deal is: get up to 50% off hotel stays when booking via this link today.

T&Cs on when to travel are shown on the individual booking pages.


Expedia is running a very simple deal (only live from 9am).  You will save £40 on a £150+ hotel booking using the code UKHOLIDAY40.  This is for stays before 31st March 2018.

If you are booking a flight + hotel package, you will receive a discount we can’t disclose in advance on a package of £800+.

    Melia site not working for me – comes up with an error then goes to a different page to search and then hangs there forever.

  • Pangolin says:

    I don’t see any Black Friday deals on SPG (I clicked through your link) but they do have a Cyber Monday offer. Unfortunately, this only seems to apply to The Americas.

  • Brian says:

    Accor are running a four-day flash sale – I saw the Sofitel Heathrow for 118GBP including breakfast for some dates – not sure if that’s the lowest out there.

    • Walty says:

      Tried to use points to book but not getting the option even though when you filter in the search “Use reward Points” and the hotel is returned in the search. Wonder if points bookings are removed until the sale is over??

  • Simon says:

    This one’s great, thanks! That’s the wife’s birthday weekend sorted.

  • Cat says:

    Hey, looking at the Antalya Crowne Plaza for Feb half term, as a GA. My reservation page still shows that “Your rate” under “Your world sale includes an extra person supplement of 20 euros per night. How do I make the double occupancy rate disappear?

  • Cat says:

    Gutted that I missed this one – enjoy the Cairngorms!
