Cyber Monday is here, and that brings some substantial savings on flights, hotels, and travel gear.

But consider yourself warned: Some deals are better than others. From Cyber Monday to Black Friday to the supposed “Travel Tuesday” tomorrow, there's no single best day to book flights at lower prices – they're more marketing gimmicks than money-saving reality. Airlines almost never advertise their best deals.

But there are some decent deals out there – especially on travel gear like noise-canceling headphones, luggage, apparel, and more. Take a look at our roundup of the best of the best Cyber Monday travel deals.

Keep in mind that prices and availability may change slightly over time! All deals and prices were current as of 11 a.m. CT on Nov. 27

 

 

The Best Airfare Deals on Cyber Monday

Aer Lingus

Ireland's Aer Lingus is cutting prices on select flights across the pond to mark the occasion, with 100 euro ($109 USD) discounts on roundtrip economy fares to both Dublin (DUB), Shannon (SNN), and even Manchester (MAN) – or 200 euro ($218 USD) flying Aer Lingus business class.

You'll find these discounted rates from a handful of Aer Lingus routes between Europe and the U.S. The lower pricing is already reflected in what you find by searching through Aer Lingus – or even by searching with Google Flights. Book directly with Aer Lingus to get the discount.

With those discounts, that means you could book roundtrip flights to Dublin as low as $420 or so roundtrip in economy.

 

aer lingus black friday

 

These savings are available on flights from Dec. 1 through March 14, 2024. But you have to book by midnight today (Monday, Nov. 27) to get these rates.

Check it out on the Aer Lingus site.

 

Avianca LifeMiles

It may not be a Cyber Monday promotion, per se … but it could be a great deal nonetheless.

Avianca LifeMiles is an underrated airline mileage program and one of the few where it can make sense to buy miles in bulk. And that's especially true when LifeMiles offers a bonus this big: Up to 165% bonus miles when you buy 21,000 LifeMiles or more.

That's one of the biggest bonuses we've seen when buying LifeMiles to date, and it can be extremely lucrative – but only if you do your homework. You'll need to register for this promotion via One Mile at a Time first, then you should see the bonuses reflected when you go to purchase LifeMiles.

 

buy lifemiles black friday

 

This big mileage sale ends Dec. 5.

With a 165% bonus, buying 50,000 miles (for $1,650) would net you a grand total of 132,500 Avianca LifeMiles. That works out to 1.25 cents apiece, which is about as good as it gets when you can redeem these miles for Lufthansa First Class, EVA Air business class, and many more.

Register and buy LifeMiles for an up to 165% bonus!

 

Delta

Delta Vacations has a potentially lucrative deal.

Current SkyMiles members can save up to $300 on a packaged flight and hotel vacation this winter to Hawaii, Mexico, Central America, South America, and the Caribbean. Just book by Nov. 30 with promo code SMBF300 at DeltaVacations.com.

This Delta Vacations promo is good for travel through Jan. 31, 2024.

Head to Delta Vacation's promo page for more details!

 

Frontier Airlines

One of the cheapest airlines in the country is out with a special “all-you-can-fly” pass at an even steeper discount.

Through next Tuesday, Nov. 28, you can buy Frontier's GoWild! Annual pass for $499 for the first year, unlocking a full year of “free” flights from May 1, 2024, through April 30, 2025. You'll also get automatic Frontier Silver Elite status with benefits like free seat selection and more.

 

frontier gowild pass

 

That could be a boon for frequent Frontier flyers, but consider yourself warned: There are some major restrictions on using these passes, including:

  • You can only book domestic flights one day prior to travel (or 10 days for international) if there's room on the plane for you.
  • You'll still be on the hook for $.01 in airfare plus all the taxes and fees on each ticket.

Icelandair

Icelandair is reliably one of the cheapest ways to get to Reykjavik (KEF) or almost anywhere in Europe. The airline is advertising some decent discounts that could make it even cheaper.

Head to Icelandair's dedicated sale page to check out what you can book from cities like Minneapolis-St. Paul (MSP), Boston (BOS), Chicago-O'Hare (ORD), New York City (JFK), Denver (DEN), and many more. We're seeing roundtrip fares to almost anywhere in Europe under $500 from many cities.

Or you can even score a roomy Icelandair Saga Premium seat for as low as $1,200 roundtrip.

 

icelandair black friday

 

But you'll need to book by midnight local time next Tuesday, Nov. 28 to get these lower prices.

Head to Icelandair's sale page for more info!

 

SAS

You can always count on Scandinavian Airlines (SAS) for a good deal across the Atlantic, and Black Friday and Cyber Monday are no different.

The carrier is teasing even cheaper fares for what they call Black Flyday. We're seeing roundtrip fares from the U.S. to Scandinavia and throughout Europe in the $400s from many cities, and sometimes in the $300s.

 

sas black friday

 

SAS says these deals are eligible for travel from Jan. 15 through April 30, 2024. But you have to book by this Tuesday, Nov. 28.

Southwest

If there's one airline you can count on for discount codes that actually move the needle, it's Southwest Airlines. And they're at it again for Cyber Monday.

Book by Nov. 30 and you can get 30% off Southwest flights this winter using promo code CYBER30. It'll work on select flights within the continental U.S. from Jan. 9 through March 6, 2024. If you're heading down to Mexico or the Caribbean, out to Hawaii, or over to Puerto Rico, you can get a 30% discount from Jan. 9 all the way through May 22, 2024.

Just head to Southwest.com, enter promo code CYBER30, and start searching. Use the Southwest low fare calendar to find the best deals.

 

TAP Air Portugal

Portugal's flag carrier has cemented its place as one of the cheapest ways to get to Europe. And it doesn't get much cheaper than this.

The airline is advertising sub-$500 roundtrip fares from across the U.S. to destinations all over Europe. Want to fly business class instead? No problem: You can find fares for a trip in 2024 for as low as $1,245 in TAP Air business class. That's a pretty great deal.

You'll have to book by this Tuesday, Nov. 28 to get these low rates. And while TAP's reputation isn't the best – especially on the customer service front – we've found it's a nice experience no matter whether you're flying a cheap economy fare or up in business class.

 

Virgin Atlantic

Virgin Atlantic has a cheeky sale for travelers who are looking to burn some Virgin Atlantic Flying Club points for a trip next year.

The airline has slashed award rates by 33% whether you're flying economy across the Atlantic or splurging for a lie-flat seat. That brings one-way economy rates as low as 6,700 points or just 31,800 points for business class redemptions. Only Virgin Atlantic award tickets are eligible – not partner bookings on airlines like Delta or All Nippon Airways.

The savings here are nothing to scoff at, but there's a big caveat. While award rates have been slashed by 33%, you'll still be on the hook for all the taxes and fees … and those can be substantial when booking with Virgin. Still, you can easily come out way ahead – especially on a one-way flight in economy to London-Heathrow (LHR).

You'll see the discounts applied automatically when you search for award tickets at VirginAtlantic.com. For example, this one-way ticket from New York City (JFK) to London is typically 10,000 miles each way.

 

virgin discount

 

Flying Club points are incredibly easy to earn: You can transfer credit card points to Virgin Atlantic from all the major banks.

These discounts are available for travel all the way through September 2024. But you'll need to book your ticket by the end of today, Monday, Nov. 27, before these discounts disappear.
