TRAVEL DEALS: Black Friday & Cyber Monday — Up to 60% Hotel Discounts
It’s finally here, folks: that frenzied weekend that includes Black Friday and Cyber Monday. I hope you’ve saved up your pennies, because I’ve found some really good Latin America travel deals this year, on flights, hotels and tours around the region — with savings up to 60% and more.
I’d venture to guess that no other website is publishing so many Black Friday and Cyber Monday travel sales that specifically apply to Latin America. And if you don’t see anything you like in this week’s roundup, check out LatinFlyer’s weekly Travel Deals section for Black Friday and Cyber Monday travel deals that were published over the past three weeks (I gave you a three-week head start on the travel deals available this weekend — oh, and by the way, if you subscribed to LatinFlyer.com, you’d have already gotten them! Sign up for free by placing your email address in the subscription box).
Don’t forget: You can get some of the best rates on airlines, hotels, rental cars and cruises by using LatinFlyer’s own travel booking engine (it’s at the top right-hand side of this page if you’re using a computer or tablet, or at the bottom of each page if you’re on a cell phone), where it says “Save Big on Your Trip.” With one click, you can compare airfares and rates from more than 10 top travel sites, including Expedia, Orbitz and Travelocity. No more wasting time when you travel!
