If you are planning your next trip, here are great Black Friday deals for travel-related products and services such as hotels, tours, and handy accessories.
Black Friday Hotel Deals
Like every year, Booking is offering interesting sales and promotions for Black Friday with 30% off your next stay on selected rooms and properties at participating properties. Apart from the deals on accommodation, Booking is offering up to 25% off car rental services. However, read carefully the small print because there are some terms and conditions.
To use Black Friday Deals, in fact, customers must book between November, 16th November 2023 and November, 29th 2023 and stay between November, 17th November 2023 and December 31st, 2024. The promotion of at least 30% off is pretty sweet to either save money altogether or afford a more expensive property you wouldn’t book otherwise.
Even though it’s not always easy to plan a trip so far ahead, you can always start and book as several properties on Booking often offer the opportunity to cancel within a certain timeframe.
Black Friday Tour Deals
If you are planning or thinking about your next trip, you are bound to find some pretty sweet deals in the guided tour department. Whether you are looking for a single-day city tour or a few weeks on the other side of the world, get ready to discover great trip package sales and offers.
Looking for a tour to India to challenge your adaptation skills? Are you planning your dream holiday to Europe or Italy guided trip? Then you definitely won’t want to miss the offers of G Adventures with a nice sale of up to 30% off on a juicy selection of tours from the Galapagos to Europe, from Costa Rica to Delhi to Borneo and Bali.
Not all tours are included and discounts depend on when you book your trip, when is the trip going to take place, and how big the group is. The promotions run until November 30th, 2023 and, like always, check the terms and conditions.
On the other hand, if you are looking for single-day tours, half-a-day trips, or even tours of a couple of hours, companies like Take Walks and Get Your Guide will have you covered in several destinations and with a good wealth of trip styles.

We took several tours with Take Walks and loved them every time. Their guides are local and expert, able to shed light on the most well-known and lesser-known aspects of a city or attraction.
The discounts are already applied to the tours so you don’t need to add any code at the checkout. The promotion ends on November 28th. As usual, don’t forget to read the fine print.

Traveling with a VPN is useful and sometimes necessary if you are traveling to countries like China or Iran, where the local government applies filters to some websites. Whether it’s social media such as Facebook and Twitter or services including emails or movie streaming websites, there are many places where you will need a VPN.
After ruining my phone with dodgy free VPN providers, I switched to ExpressVPN and never looked back. It doesn’t clog the phone or any other device, it’s pretty light, very fast, and links to a huge amount of servers. This year 2023, they are offering Black Friday and Cyber Monday deals to be purchased until November, 30th: get 12 months + 3 extra free months of subscription.
