First Choice - Get Inspired
  • Black Friday is fast approaching, which means discounted designer gear and crazily cheap electronics. And, the good news is, you can bag a bargain on your holiday, too. Read our top tips on how to get the best Black Friday travel deals…

    Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you’ll know that Black Friday is the biggest shopping day of the year. Last year shoppers spent an absolutely huge £1.1bn within 24 hours, and this year is set to be even bigger. It’s the perfect way to grab some great deals on Christmas presents and, best of all, get a discount on your next holiday, too.

    So, to make sure you don’t miss out this year, here’s how to get the best Black Friday holiday deal.

    Start early

    Black Friday falls on November 24th this year – the day after Thanksgiving in the US – so be sure to mark the date in your diary and get ready to start looking for deals. As every successful deal hunter knows, the key to grabbing a bargain is to start at the crack of dawn. So, the sooner you can drag yourself out of bed, the better.

    Do your research

    Holiday deals are there to be snapped up fast. You won’t have time for deliberation if you want to get the best bargains. So, before Black Friday, start browsing our destinations and hotels – from Cape Verde and the Canaries to Mexico and Mauritius – and make a shortlist of your favourites. Not only will you have a handy list of all the places you want to tick off, you’ll be prepared to make snap decisions quickly.

    Bookmark our website and deals pages

    Ok, so once you’ve set your alarm, crawled out of bed and sat by your computer, you’ll want quick access to the best deals and codes. Bookmark our First Choice Black Friday deals page so you can click straight onto it and start browsing, plus, of course, the First Choice blog to get all the latest travel news.
